WELLS, President Hawaii Educational Association) : $ The Hawaii Education. Association, ergarten gave the pupils of school A through its executive committee, is ' such a good grounding in English be asking the department of public in- j fore ihey arrived at the age to enter btruction to establish one kindergarten ; the first grade, that they were able to for every 1000 pupils throughout the enter that grade a year ahead of the territory. We are doing this because pupils of school 13. Looked at in terms we are convinced that kindergartens are the best kind of educational in vestment that this Territory could possibly make. Like all the other items of the H. E. A. program, this particular item is subject to the endorsement of the seven affiliated Teachers' Associations of the Territory, to all of whom it has been submitted. Profitable Investment We believe that kindergartens pay in two ways: 1. Kindergartens Americanize. ? Kindergartens pay for them sel ts in actual dollars and cents by eliminating the receiving grade and j by extending the time in which each child may secure an education by one year, thus giving him, by so much, a fuller and richer training before il lis necessary for him to leave school, j First, as to Americanization: I Psychol6gists and religious teachers agree that the first six years of a ;child'8 life determine, to a great de I gree, the kind of citizen he is going j to develop into. cent and to corn by 1.2 percent. In yield per acre, 1921 also shows an increase of 1.2 percent in rice and 3.4 percent in sugar cane over that of 1920, but market conditions were such that in spite of the increases in area and yield the value of all Philippine crops fell from $343,565,000 in 1920 to $201,629,000 in 1921 or about forty percent.

Which kind of citizen do you and I want for our i neighbor? which kind for our law maker? The kindergarten will do much to determine the kind of citi zens we shall have, beginning, as it does at the very foundation of charac ter building. No greater mistake can be made than to leave the molding of this plastic citizen stuff, the young child, to the worse than bungling of an ignorant, superstitious, alien enemy to American thought and life. How Kindergartens Save Second, as to the claim that kinder gartens pay for themselves in actual of pupil advancement, then, a kinder garten woud add nothing to the teaching cost of a school, since it would simply replace a position at ready manned. Of course there would be the actual initial expense of a kindergarten teacher to be met, but the kindergarten would soon dis place the Receiving Grade. It will be noted by the table above, that School B. apparently catches up with School A in grade five, and ap parently holds that position through the grammar grades. As a matter of record, however, School B lost all but 25."9c of her pupils before they reach ed the Grammar Grades, while School A retained 33.5 of hers. The kin dergarten, then, not. only gave every child in the more fortunate school a year's start of his neighbor, but also gave him such a foundation and such an impetus as to carry him beyond his neighbor at the end of his school life. Other things being equal, School A, which may well represent any school that has a kindergarten within reach of its pupils before they are of regular school age, should send more pupils to High School, and send them younger, than your B school that has no such advantage. The introduction of kindergartens into our school system, then, will help most effectively to solve our 1 great problem of Americanization; i it will also add a year's time to the potential training of our pupils along such lines as we may determine upon, and thus allow for greater breadth of education. The great question educational, today, is what the trend of that education should be, and how it should be directed. The Hawaii Education Association does not favor an education that shall lead exclusively to the white collar Job.

SYDNEY, Nov. 9 (By Associated Press Mail) A new theory of creat ion, which may supplant the Einstein theory of relativity, has been evolved by Lord Clifford, F. G. S., F. C. S., ; who is visiting Australia. Lord Clifford, although averse to laying down a hard and fast theory until more complete investigations have been made, said that the main outline is "that all matter has been produced by the shortening of wave length per inch of light or ether, ow ing to explosions of light or ether cur rents meeting from opposite direc tions." "I have been able mathematically to establish an index ratio of all mat ter and psychic forces in relation to the total wave lengths of light or ether, which may solve many problems in organic and inorganic chemistry," he said. "I have been working for the past four years with Dr. Benjamin Moore on the evolution of organic out of inorganic matter, and it is mainly owing to suggestions of mine that Dr. Moore achieved definite results 12 months before they were achieved likewise but in a different manner by Professor Bally of Liverpool." Lord Clifford's work has been taken up by the presidents of the English zoological and geological societies. He Is touring Australia with the main ob ject of founding branches of the Evo lution Society, which was established in 1920 as the result of his work by Dr. Moore, late physicist at Oxford.
