DO KINDERGARTENS PAY?
(By H. M. 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

btruction to establish one kindergarten ; the first grade, that they were able to

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

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

j The citizen children of alien parent- j
age in this territory are all heading
tin one of two directions: Either they I
' are developing into loyal, law-abiding, j

our flag and all that it stands for, j
I respectful and respected by all the
j people of the land, or they will g:ow
, up alien in thought and speech,
, anti Christ ian, anti American, dis
trustful and distrusted, despis
ing and despised. 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

cord with the Idea of training the

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
