Baldwin for the Historical De partment of the Maui Woman's Club and was read to that body at a public meeting of the Maui Woman's Club. At this particular tinie. when it has been proposed that Lahainaluna Sem inary be abandoned as such and be made a high school for Lahaina, more than ordinary interest attaches Mrs. Baldwin's article.) in each number was reserved for tho writing and thoughts of the Hawai ians, which often showed much merit, and was a credit to them. In 1831 it was decided to erect erm eneni buildings, and to enlarge the school, taking a younger class of to! students of boys between ten and ! twenty years of age. An additional In January, 1831. at the annual ! teacher was needed, and the Rev. E.

Sheldon Dibble was added to the faculty. Both Mr. Clark and Mr. Dibble, besides teaching and (himized road of easy grade leads ; from the town of Lahaina to rfte school in place of the steep footpath of early years. i Present Day Management The school owns 1000 acres of land and a valuable water right. About 42 acres are used for the cultivation of cane by the scholars. This brings in an income for the school of about ; $8,000.00. With the exception of land needed for gardens, and the raising of taro, the remaining acres are leased to the plantation at Lahaina. The income from this, goes, however, i to the government, not to the school. Since 1916 Lahainaluna has been placed under the control of a separate Board from the Territorial Commis-! ' sioners of Education. The character ; of the school has changed. The higher 1 i branches of a seminary are no longer, taught, and it is now what is called a ! ; trade school. I'nder the able manage ment of the present Principal, Mr. C. i K. McDonald, the school has greatly prospered. The course of studv cov ers five years. The grades correspond to the fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grades of the public schools. The time of the fifth year, or ninth grade, is given to shop work entirely. The : course provides that boys in the sixth . grade shall take printing and binding, as well as the usual studies of that grade, carpentry in the seventh grade blacksmithing in the eighth, and ma chine shop work in the ninth grade or fifth year. Plumbing is also taught I and all the plumbing and plumbing re j pairs are done by the boys. ; . The boys have built the shops and i tie cottages, and have made the re pairs to buildings and fences. They have wired the buildings for electric lights, and the senior class has charge of the running of the lights. Students Govern Selves The government of the school is largely by the boys themselves, and is modeled partly after the county government of Maui, being divided in to districts electing officers corres ponding to our County and district 1 officers. In this way the boys learn ! the use of the ballot, and to respect the law. and to feel a sense of res ponsibility, j In 1931 Lahainaluna will have com pleted a century of work.
