HONOLULU STAR-BULLETIN, TUESDAY OCT. 1 5, 1912.
EXTENDING TO SCHOOLSi TOO
A Honolulu business man w
chlldren attend one of the
schools here was complaining the
other day of the many financial
demands that are being made, on the
children almost' every day. In speak
ing of this he made several compari
sons of the school days at the pre
sent time and those of forty years
ago. There is no ddubt whatever"
said he that there are many Jmprove
ments in the educational system; still
if some of the folderols were put
aside the fchildren 'would probable
do quite as well. V
-When I went to school we did not
have to pay what are now called
class . dues, and dues to most every
school organization. The other day
my little girl came home and asked
for a dollar and a half, to pay for a
-subscription to the ichool paper, i
thirty cents far her class dues rand
some other dues for one or two of
the school organizations. Naturally 1
gave them to her, but not without a
bit of grumbling. I confess., I asked
her why she went' into all these
things and she' answered that to have
standing in school a pupil must enter
Into all the. athletics, and subscribe
to any. paper that Is published. I
was sorry for her because she was
afraid to be the only one to revolt
against- such , conditions, still ; I. could
not really blame her. J sincerely-wish
that some; of the-- faculty, members
would take ' the ' matter In hand . and
do something to stop such things
Nor was this ' all that he said ;- for
he , seemed to feel -rather bitter , on
the subject Being -a fair minded man
he said ..that he would naturally , give
his little girl the money but also that
he knew that there are some of the
f children .in-that same school who are
I unable ; to meet - all - such . demands.

send their little ones to the best
i schools and. the most select but when
there are so many financial demands
made upon them by the student body
there is often more than one heart
In the private schools here : the
tuition is not small and often parents
have to deny themselves many little
luxuries to send the children there.
Each year there are more demands
made on scholars by the scholars and
the parents are becoming more re
bellious. The teachers too demand
many accessories from the children.
There is an abundance of paper that
must be bought every week, ever so
many . school books9 and copy books.
Many of the latter are not even half
filled at the end of the year. A family
In moderate circumstances can hard
ly stand this If there are many ! child
ren to be educated. Thirty to forty
years ago the. children were supplied
with the school books and at the end
of 'each fcchool year the books were
J neatly , wrapped in . packages and re-

days the board, of ed u cation .was . able
to supply, the books .but now.'the texts
Are changed ;o often that the board
of r education; can ' not., afford It any
more than, can the parents. ' ;r :t ?'
; A few years aga even, a family
would buy books for the first" child
that entered " school and these -'same
books werepassed -to the other cbtldr
ren as - they ;. grew ; up. ; Now such"; a
thing Is almost ; Impossible 1 and the.
parents from some: reports are likely
to rise up. in rebellion.-! : :? ' '
Another thing that may be spoken
of Is the defacing of books by - the
scholars. Hideous pictures are drawn
on the fly leaf of the books and af
ter; a Yery Bhort period they are not
presentable. In this case the parents
as well, as the: teachers might find

An address on these subjects,
which was read by Mrs. J. M., Dow
tvett for the purpose of demonstrat
ing to the. local association what the
suffragettes ? arft working for and
what they are doing, in other parts of
the world. The address in part was:
"The effect :- of Women's vote .in

though, the progress has been slow
up to this time, they are carefully
working; toward their: goal There
will be more ;of these addresses along

"Hully gee, Willie, just cast your
lamps on the line of eats that they
are handing out to us for a dime.
Why, dis place has got Sing Hop's
lean kitchen faded to a gloom!"
This statement and many others of
general approval were heard at noon
yesterday in the boys department; of
the Y, M." C. A. It all came about
with the starting of a new feature by
the employed boys department of the
association in the fonn of a noonday
meal for boys who work in offices or
other establishments ' in ; town; '' This
new feature is under the direction of
R. M. Cross, secretary of the em
ployed boys' department and is prov
ing a great success.
A lot of boys who work around
town, eat in any place where they
can get food cheapest To overcome
this matter of improper eating and
bad associates, the employed . boys'
department of the association is now
serving a noonday lunch on the lanai!
of the boys' department for the lib
eral sum of ten cents, putting the
food out at cost for the accommoda
tion of the working boys. Those who
know the superior qualty of the food
that Is served in the cafteria will not
hesitate to believe that these lunches
for the boys are of the best that can
be bought, and for ten cents. The boys
can get - a big meat sandwich, a gen
erous cut of pie, and a glass of milk,
with; an occasional change to soup
and several hot dishes
' Yesterday noon there was a t large
number of .boys from the differentof
f ices and - other establishments about
town present to patronize the now
"cafe," - and already ; it - Is proving a
decidedly attractive feature.
