Assimilation in the School
By Vaughan Mac.Caughey
In the typical American public
school on the mainland, it has been
found through long experience In
many regions that an enrollment of
85 y0 of American children from
English-speaking homes can assimi
late 20 of non-apoaklng-English
chlldren from the homes of foreign
Eighty per cent of English-speaking
children can "assimilate" 15 of
In Hawaii these conditions are re
served, and In the public schools there
is far less than 15 of English-speak
ing children from the homes of Amer
ican-born (or Hawallan-born parents.
Instead of the "American" children
assimilating the children of the im
migrants, the great danger is that the
preponderant mass of children of for
eign-born parents shall "assimilate"
the "American." This unique condi
tion, which has no parallel in any
other part of the United States, has
led to the withdrawal of most of the
children of American-born parents in
to private schools.
Hawaii's numerous private schools
have owed their development, In no
small measure, to the overwhelming
numbers of children of foreign-born
parentage in the public schools.
The remedy to this remarkable and
paradoxical situation, (whereby the
children of American-born parents are
penalized by public school attendance)
is the recognition of the English'
speaking school as the standard, nor
mal type of school. Dr. Albert Bush
nell Hart ably expounded this concept
during his recent visit to Hawaii
Under this system the children of
American-born parents have a prior
claim to public school education over
the children of foreign-born parents,
The Territory should provide ad
quately for both groups; but, as a
matter of Bimple Justice, the children
of American-born parents should not
be crowded out of the public schools

TERRITORY OF HAWAII JftM
The wave of industrial enthusiasm
that flowed so strong for the month
of July and carried so many kids,
many of them of a very tender age,
out into the fields to work, has weak
ened very materially for August.
' With most commendable patience
and perserverance the youngsters
stuck to it through July manfully. The
bonus was ahead of them and lured
them on. Some of them weakened at
the close of the 20 days, when the
bonus was assured but most of them
stuck to it for the full month.
But with a new month ahead of
them, and the vacation flitting rapidly
away, a great many concluded that
they had had enough.
In some cases their parents put in
an effective veto against any more
getting up before daylight, and com
ing home in the afternoon, a sight to
behold with laundry prices away up
in the sky, and stopped the enterprise.
Now the youngsters are busy figur
ing out what the bonus plus the basic
wage will come to, which is a diffi
cult problem since both elements are
more or less uncertain. The only
thing they are reasonably sure of is
that they will be rich.

Sugar Fortunes In Florida
Stimulated by the scarcity and high
prices of sugar there is a scheme in
hand to convert the vast areas of the
Florida Everglades Into sugar fields.
A large part of the southern part
of the state, to the extent of millions
of acres, is a low lying swamp, pent
up by a limestone rim of higher level,
which acts as a retaining wall. The
consequence is that for months at a
time, after the summer rains, the
whole country is under water. The
natural drainage outlet is far away
and the flow thither so Blow that the
country is one eternal swamp, save
certain limited island areas of high
It is now proposed to cut through
this retaining dyke by means of
immense ditches at suitable paces,
thus furnish easy and rapid drainage
for large adjacent areas.
One section of this reclaimed area
of 120,000 acres, has been put on the
market, and is being taken up by a
syndicate of experienced sugar men
who are quite confident that it will
be one of the finest and most produc
tive sugar regions in the world. The
soil is of rich alluvial character,
heavily surcharged with humus and
vegetable matter. Experiments have
shown that this will raise the very
best of cane. That which is now un-
