Kauai people scored a great suc
cess for the benefit o the fatherless
children of Franco at the bazar and
entertainment given In the Armory
at Lihuo last Friday evening.
Mrs. B. N. Young, who is respon
sible for the event, reports a total
of $G55.00 receipts from various enter
tainments and donations. This is a
very good Bhowlng for Mrs. Young as
well as for the workers who took
part in tho various events, and those
who attended and spent freely for
the worthy cause.
In addition to funds obtained from
the entertainment, everybody who
went had a real, livo time. In fact
there was not a Blow moment during
tho entire evening. Every one loft
light in spirit and considerably light
er in pocketbook.
A largo section of tho Armory was
roped off for dancing. This proved
to be one of tho main attractions of
the evening for both old and young,
and many dollars wero collected from
those who entered tho dancing space
and swayed to tho strains of Hawaiian
music, which was furnished by John
Malina and his musicians.
Other attractions wero tho hula
dance, which was directed by Kauai's
entertaining senator, J. H. Coney.
Mrs. Ralph Wilcox had charge of
a fish pond of the dry variety. Thfj
bait was placed on a largo table in
9fc booth, and was wrapped in roa
piper to attract the fishes, which, in
this case, wore of the human variety
and paid ten cents for a nibble.
Mrs. A. R. Glaisyor had charge sf
a beautiful display oi cut flowers and
potted plants, from her wonderful
gardens at Kalaheo. Theso flowers
vero sold to all who ramo aroiiuJ to
admire them, thus odting consider
ably to the funds col.cctcd.
Tho Japaneso Y. M. C. A. boy in
stalled a game of chanco in their
booth by which one had a sporting
chauco of winning a post card, provid
ed you paid a dime first.
.Fho dry fish pond had to be suppll
mented by something wet, so Mr. and
Mrs. A. D. Hills operated a wot booth
where cold drinks wero furnished.
Edith Rico was in charge of a danc
ing troop that was a great attraction
and addition to the entertainment in
general. Considerable talent was dis
played by tho young ladles taking
part in this stunt.
An excellent show, tho production
of Mrs. E. P. Wood, of Lihuo, and
played by a local cast of actors and
actresses, proved to be a popular and
Tho usual fortune telling booth,
proper for such occasions, was in
evidence, as well as a ball throwing
booth and duck pond. In tho duck
pond gracefully glided a half dozen
ducks who offered their necks to bt
ringed for tho fatherless children of
Franco, at tho rate of three rings for
Coffee and cocoa with real cream
a product actually worth more than
you paid for it, was served in a corner
of tho Armory. Mrs. Wm. Henry Rice
and Mrs. E. S. Swan wero in charge
of this charitable end of the bazar,
aud deservo much credit for sustain
tug tho nerve of tho guests with
their excellent refreshments.
Tho wholo affair was marked by a
spirit of cheerful giving. It was ono
of thoso affairs that Kauai is noted
Our old friend, E. Palmer, well
known to a great many on Kauai, has
sent us clippings from Columbus
Ohio, papers, descriptive of tho wild
outburst of jubilation in celebration
jf tho end of tho war. Tho men went
wild, tho "women hurrahed liko any
body." Columbus was chuck full of
happiness. You would havo seen

Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Wilcox and
children went to town on Saturday,
tho family to remain for a month or
so. Mr. Wilcox will bo back after
tho Planters- meeting.
On Thursday evening- last, thrco
young Japanese boys ranging in ago
from fifteen to seventeen years were
caught by tho ushers of tho Tip Top
theatre trying to gain entranco to tho
show on tickets dated two days
earlier. When quizzed about tho mat-
tor, ono of tho hoys confessed that
upon having found tho ticket window
left open on Tuesday evening after
the show he simply reached in anl
pressed tho button on tho ticket ma
chine as often as ho wished, thus
securing a handful pt 15 cent tickets.
This is where the wouui-Dc ucet
magnato failed, the fact of tho ticket
being dated escaped his youthful at
tention. On Friday the trio was brought up
before Judge Hjorth in the Lihuo
District Court, who, upon ascertaining
their tender age, promptly had the
case transferred to the Juvenile Court
presided over by Hon. L. A. Diskoy.
Judge Dickey and Mr. Warner of
tho Y. M. C. A., took tho boys in
hand on Saturday morning and it ia
safe to say tho boys will novcr again
attempt to gain admission to a show
on stolen tickets.

Tho annual convention of tho Kauai
teachers met according to their recent
ly established custom, on Friday, Nov.
29th, nt tho Tip Top Theater, in Lihue.
There wero ono hundred and forty-five
more teachers, every school save Nil
hau, being represented, in all but ono
or two cases, by the full staff of teach
ers. Tlioro was somo delay In getting
started owing to tho detention of Mr.
E. A. Knudsen, tho president, by
automobile trouble on tho way.
Following tho singing of tho Star
Spangled Banner by ho wholo con
vention, nnd of a Koloa Bong, "Ulu
wehi o Kaala," by a few of tho teach
ers from that school, tho reports of
the secretary and treasurer wero read

How to Teach
Another song .followed; represent
ivo of Lihuo. Tho only distinctively
pedagogic number on tho program
camo next, "How I Teach Arithmetic
in the Grades,'" by Mrs. MacGregor,
principal of the Waimea school. This
was a clear cut, original, forcible and
somewhat radical presentation of a
difficult subject. The speaker handled
tho matter in a trenchant, practical
way that arrested your attention and
awakened your interest, oven though
you found yourself constrained to
differ from her in somo of her con
clusions; in most cases you agreed
with her most heartily. A few of her
sallieut points wero: "Wo use far too
much scratch paper in our arithmetic;
there is far too much slavish and pro
tracted writing out of method and
process. Wo ought to havo a great
deal more mental work, which is
much quicker and neater and less
cumbersome, and for more applicable
to tho real needs of life. To bo tied
to tho uso of paper and pencil, and
to bo more or less helpless without
them, this is an unbearable handicap.
Tho uso of games as a means of teach
ing arithmetic should bo avoided; the
side issues and interests of the game
distract and confuse tho main issue,
or prehaps even supersede tho main
Tho speaker then went into practl
cal blackboard demonstration of how
readily arithmetic could ho taught, to
tho very smallest children, by means
of tho group-plcturo method, whero
tho simple combinations could bo
mado by .tho manipulation of groups
of beans or pebbles, at a glanco, and
without tho delay of counting. The
tables must bo learned by heart and
must bo mastered absolutely, to and
fro, in every possiblo combination.
Fractions should bo taught by strips
of paper, tearing tho wholo number
into fractional parts. Mensuration
should, of course, bo taught graphi
cally, and just as far as possible,
mentally. Tho address was received
with marked interest and approve!.
Mrs. Aliana then sang "The Isles' nf
Aloha," a dainty tiling, witli a tender,
appealing tone to it. which she ren-Jof-ed
very effectivf.ly, and with a touch
of tho pathetic that brought tears to
many eyes. Needless to say sho wis
encored with enthusiasm, and tho
second singing was as acceptable as
Tho president then introduced

sense and practical wisdom. Tho

The morning session closed with a
contralto tolo by Mrs. Marcalllno,
very well done.
The Convention Adjourned
Most of tho visiting teachers had
brought their lunch with thorn which
they ate in happy, laughing groups in
the park, tho tennis court or in their
cars. Many, however, accepted the
kind hospitality of Lihuo friends.
Tho afternoon session began with
convention singing of patriotic songs,
led by Mrs. Aliana and Mrs. Rea, and
was of a most pleasing and inspiring
quality, lacking only tho sufficient In
fusion of male voices.
The president called attention to
tho fact that there was a comfortable
balance in tho treasury, and tho bills
wcjro all paid. He would suggest that
it bo devoted to the adoption of a
French orphan. Motion was mado to
this offect and carried.
Mrs. Burke, of the Kapaa school,
called nttentlon to the manifest in
adequacy of teachers salaries in tho
Islands, and moved that this conven
tion go on record as favoring a sub
stantial increase of tho same, which
it did with demonstrations of much
Athletics In the
Mr. J. O. Warner then spoke on
"Athletics in tho Schools." He com
mented on the universal appeal that
athletic sports havo made to tho world
in all ages, and to the very largo placo
they hold in modern life. "Wo want
a sound mind In a -sound body, and
wo need to beware of a lop sided edu
cation, which runs wholly to the in
tellectual." Ho emphasized the sig
nificance and value of sports as a
moans of character building. In order
however that "they should minister to
tiiis end in tho fullest degree they
must bo carefully supervised in order
to check ovcry tendency to selfishness,
brutality or lack of solf control, and
to insure tho development of tho in
tellectual, moral and social qualities
of human nature.
As tho result of much consideration
and conference on tho part of a largo
commltteo of educational leader.?,
with a view to the Improvement of
amateur athletics, tho following pur
poses had been emphasized: Fir.-jt
seek highest possible aim in all direc
tions; Second, mako tho existing In
stitutions, such as church, school, col
lego, etc., responsible for the conduct
of them. Tic them up to responsible
agencies. Third: Standardize them;
do away with tho specialized forms;
stlmulato and develop mass playing.
Coming to a closer practical appli
cation, ho advised tho teachers to
familiarize themselves with tho rules
of tho various games, and then to
organizo a courso of lnterscholastlc
games that should run through tho
year, in proper rotation, foot ball,
volley ball, basket ball, etc. Theso
for tho older children, and for tho
younger, other and simpler games,
such as would tend to tho develop
ment of character, and of judgment,
alortnoss and cooperation.
