HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS ANNUAL
By Hen."7 7. Ishlmara.
Plans are under way tor the Third
Annual Conference of the High School
students of the Terrltority which will
be held from March 31st to April 3rd.
The place baa not yet been decided.
The first conference held In May, 1913,
waa confessedly an experiment. The
press characterised it as "a new de
parture" and the church and mission
ary boards In the Islands watched the
plans and the follow-up with keen
interest With the boys representing
practically every one of the thirty-seven
nationalities and a host of religious
faiths It was impossible to predict Just
what turn the conference would take.
The leaders wanted to be spared the
horrors of spiritual vivisection. They
also wanted to get away from the un
manly business of "pussyfooting".
A strong program waa arranged in
which, the issue of Christian steward
ship was made plain and in which
athletics played an important part
These things kept the conference nor
mal and happy. Forty-five students
were present and remained to the end.
New a Permanent Assembly

steps were taken to Insure Its perman
ence. . A special committee waa ap
pointed to develop plans. Before a
start could be made In that direction,
a member of the committee, of the
former conference came forward and
offered to take care of the financial

the Islands. This would immediately
change the aspect ot the conference.
making it a territorial Instead of a
local affair. Invitations were sent
end ninety-seven students responded,
representing three Islands, Hawaii,
Oahu and Kauai, and seven different
achools. Each delegation waa ac
companied by a leader. It Is safe
to say that much of the success of the
conference is due to the work of these
Nevertheless, the spirit and the Inter
est that Kauai High took since the
last conference shows that she Is Mb,
terested In this coming Territorial
The results of the two conferences
for the students of the Territory have
been many. They have turned the
eyes of the Church and the achools to
ward the development of Christian
Ideals among the teen-age boys. They
have established the idea that the
boys of the territory, representing
many races and creeds, can be united
upon a Christian program. Above
all, they destroyed forever the haunt
ing idea that in planning a conference
program for mixed races and creeds,
and among foreign standards, one
needs to "pussy-foot" in presenting

boyhood of the- Territory with that of
The people and the committees are
looking forward to this third Annual
Conference for much better and help

to the territory.

The conference site of the previous
year on Kaneohe Bay was again se
cured and the boys were transported
over the mountains in automobiles
donated for the occasion. . The Uni
ted States Army loaned the use ot
pyramid tents, and others came tor-
ward with the offer ot chairs and
athletic field. The camp was pitched
on Friday afternoon, every boy re
maining through until Monday morn'
The delegates to the conference
were from McKinley High. Mills High,
Punahou. Korean School and fortun
ately from Hllo High and from Kauai
A most interesting feature of the
conference took place for an hour each
morning. This waa a discussion of
the Scripture with each boy using the
Bible. No one would have dared to
suggest it as a part of the 1919 pro
gram. All united on its success in
1920. Beside this Bible study, the
sports such as Indoor baseball, track
and swimming added much life to the
camp. MOls High students carried
the honor in baseball and in the neat
ness of their tents. Twice the ban
ner "REMEMBER" waa awarded to
this delegation for the best tent from
the standpoint of the military discip
line. The students who attended the
last conference were very fortunate to
have many Centennial speakers who
remained until the time of the con
ference. Their words and sermons
were the real message of the confer
ence which they brought back' to
their schools and homes.

this coming Third Annual Territorial
Students' Conference are as follows:

Kauai High School wanted to send

students, the committees unwillingly
refused to take care of that number.
