The outstanding feature of the Con
ference was the remarkable cooper
ation of all workera representing the
different agencies eng-iged in work
generally known aa soc.al welfare. In
most communities we find a woeful
lack of cooperation and good feeling,
often caused largely by the idea that
social work, being -highly specialized,
should be divided Into many different
branches, each with a thoroughly
trained specialist at. Its head. In
Hawaii the work is carried on in a
practical way to obtain results and
One of the ' great benefits which
the Conference brought to the indi
vidual workers was in giving them an
opportunity to become acquainted
with other workers and learn of their
ways of handling the many problems
which confront all social workers.
Each seemed to return to his own
field of endeavor with new energy
and ambition, ready to carry on for
another year In the interests of humanity.
The papers and discussions brought
out the idea of service and of cooper
ation with all welfare agencies. One
gained an Impression that the person
al element enters largely into the
work, and that the successful worker
Is the one who has on Interest in
humanity and a background of Christ-1
ian training. Many professional
workers seem to think that in order
to interest the general public In wel
fare work they must assume an atti
tude apparently showing little consid
eration for any religious influence In
carrying on the work. This attitude
did not find expression at the Confer
ence. The program was one of the most
comprehensive carried out by any so
cial conference in any country, cover
ing as It did city, community, rural,
industrial and government work. The
entire proceedings went forward in
an interesting and businesslike man
ner. The only criticism offered was
that the days were too strenuous and
that not enough time was devoted to
discussion. The value of discussion
cannot be over-estimated, as it brings
out experiences and suggestions which
are helpful to other workers. In

welfare, as well as other branches of
work, the method of approach has
much to do with the success of the
worker, and all can well profit by the
human Interest stories told to illus
trate ways and means of dealing with
our people of twenty nationalities.
The Industrial Service Section was
a surprise to the general public, as
the extent of industrial service work
on the plantations was not generally
understood or appreciated. The gen
uine interest that the Hawaiian Sugar
! Planters' Association and individual
plantations took in the Conference
was shown by the large number of
delegates from all islands who atten
ded at the expense of the plantations.
The papers and addresses presented
by the plantation workers were excel
lent, covering a wide range of activ
ities. They Rhowed the progress of
Xhe work, which has as its foundation
the idea of building up better planta
tion communities through an all-round
progressive and constructive policy,
working on the principle that indust
rial service or welfare work Is a part
of the sugar business and must bo
carried on by the plantations in co
operation with the community; for
without community interest being
aroused, there can be no success in
such activities as go to make better
social conditions. The undercurrent
of thought that prevailed throughout
the sessions, finding expression now
and then, was that successful welfaro
work is not a matter of giving, but of
helping others to help themselves, and
that rural community and plantation
activities should be in the hands of
the people, operating under the di
rection and guidance of trained work
Hawaii has become known as one
of the greatest melting pots of the
world. When people of all rations
dwell here In peaco and harmony,
which is the ideal we are all working
toward, then will the workers who
assembled at the first Conference of
Social Work receive their reward, for
those who attended the Conferenre
and listened to the earnest men and
women gathered there could not help
but feel that with the carrying out of
the work outlined Hawaii-nel will be
come indeed the Paradise of the

through the pipe the indicated places
are seeu. After these have been
located they may be viewed with tho
