Trans-' porta! ion to the more populous centers from the sparse rural com munities is the order of the day. Mere in the Islands the one room school is the equivalent of the "Little K,-d S.-lnml Mouse" on the mainland. Into the one room school are brought children of first grade age and one teacher makes an effort to insinict children of varying uges up to grade after grade through the fourth or fifth. After that, unless a child can walk perhaps a long distance to a larger community his or her education is at an end. n .Maui there are a number of such one room schools and here, as in other parls of the Islands- educators are becoming convinced that such schools do not accomplish their purposes as they should, too mueh of a burden is placed on a teacher in undertaking ,v extensive a program as the little school requires. So the tendency is to aliaudon the one room school, and another cause for that leiid. n.-y arises from the limited fun.

It is admitted by others lhan educators that belter results in instruction can be .s.eur.d in the larger schools where a teacher is in charge of only on.- or two urad.s than win re she undertakes 1o handle four or live. Hut uh. re a school is abandoned it often becomes necessary to add a t.-aeher to the nearest larger school. And here, as on the mainland, arises the question of how to get the children in the sehoulb s communitx to such larger school. There is only one answer, "transportation," and transportation costs money. J'crhaps. in some instances, tin- abandonment of a one room school would not require the employment of an additional teacher in the near.-st larger school and then such saxing in a teacher's Los Angeles excursionists wall be guests of Maui next Tuesday and Valley Islanders will uphold their reputation for hospitality. Without doubt the entertainment committee will have all the co operation they ask. Some $2000 will be needed over and above the funds on hand for the additions and improvements to the Crater Rest House. This is one of the first thing's that Maui must look after if it hopes to bring more tourists to the Islands and send them away as boosters, not knockers. In a short time will come requests for a kokua in raising advertising funds but the rest house project should have right of way.
