Very lnU-riHtliiir mid Instructive
The regular quarterly meeting of
the Hilo Teachers' Union was
opened with prnyer by Rev. Nash,
after which followed a discussion
as to the date for the next meeting
the regular time being but one
week before the close of the term,
it was decided to hold it May 22.
The first number on the program
was a lesson by Mrs. Tracy to illus
trate her method of teaching En
glish to first grade pupils. They
played kindergarten games, such as
soldier boys, visiting, etc., and
sang ns they played. It was all
very pretty and teacher and pupils
deserved the applause given.
Miss Eaton presented a good
paper on "Geography in Primary
Grades," treating the subject in
story form taking imaginary trips
around the world and making free
use of pictures, drawing, etc.
An article on "Words and Their
Uses" was read by Mrs. Carpenter,
showing the likeness in words and
how often they ar.e incorrectly used.
An instance was sighted where a
lawyer lost a case by the wrong use
of but one word. The correct use
of words is especially hard in these
schools as the children have such
limited vocabularies, but an effort
should be made to use words as
well as possible.
The next number on the program
was a paper on "Drawing in Lan
guage" by Miss Schmidt. She
spoke of the Five Step method and
the value of drawing as the story is
told, instead of having the picture
on the board before school also
the benefit to be derived by having
the children illustrate stories. She
had a number of pictures which
the teachers looked at during the
Professor Jordan's "The Story of
a Stone" was excellently read by
Miss McCord. Anything by Prof.
Jordan is interesting and especially
so when well read. It is to be
hoped that the teachers will take
an interest in such stories, as they
can be used so beautifully to illus
trate geography and nature lessons.
After the" usual intermission the
chairman, Mr. L. C. Lyman, an
nounced Miss Coan, Mrs. Curtis
and Miss Lilinoi Hapai as the com
mittee to prepare the program for
the next meeting, after which Miss
Huggins, accompanied by Mrs.
Tracy, kindly favored us with a
pleasing violin solo.
One of the best things on the
program was the swinging of In
dian clubs, in which the H. B.
School boys did credit to their
school. There were a number of
pretty movements and they were
well executed. Mr. Lyman men
tioned the fact that they had found
daily club drill refreshing and ben
eficial. Inspector Baldwin ably discussed
the subject of Language. He feels
that oral language is beiug neg
lected and urged the teachers to
give more attention to it. Much
can be done in this way by the free
use of the l?ive Step method the
most difficult part beiug to get the
children to talk. He read an in
teresting paper on the "Teaching
of Language to English and non
English Speaking Children," em
phasizing the fact that the language
teaching of today is not satisfactory,
but in a few years this question
will not trouble. By the study of
language he children will be lifted
to a higher plane, and by possessing
a reading and speaking knowledge
of the subject they will have a taste
for good literature. Mr. Baldwin
urged the free use of stories, so that
the child may hear English and be
encouraged to speak it.
After these remarks the subject
was discussed by the teachers and
some very excellent points were
The next on the program was
the report of the committee ap
pointed to select several of the
term plans to be published in Ha-
I waiia's Young People. Mr. Car
Ivalho reported their inability to
I find uniformity in the plans so se
l lected none for publication, but
'made an outline, from these plans,
I for the first five years' work. It
being moved and seconded Mr.
Carvalho read the outline for the
second year's work. The subject
of plans was then open for discus
sion, and nfter some delay it was
decided to have the outline, made
by Messrs. Carvalho and Capellas,
and the plans of the different teach
ers, placed in Miss Deyo's charge
where nil could see them. It was
moved and seconded that the com
mittee be discharged with thanks
for the work they had done.
After thanking the committee
for the somewhat arduous task of
preparing the program, Chairman
L. C. Lyman declared the meeting
