The following report of the weigh-'
Ing tests in the Lihue and Hananmulu
schools was prepared by Mrs. R. L. j
Wilcox and read a the public meeting
at Lihue Friday evening in connec
tion with the needs and plans of the
Lihue school. j
Mrs. R. L. Wilcox is local chair- j
man of the child welfare, and she and
her assistant ladies have given much ;
time and effort to these weighing ef- j
forts. The report reads as follows:
(Ihild welfare work In Hawaii is
part of' a nation-wide campaign for
the physical and moral rehabilitation
of the children and young people of
the land. It emanates from! federal
headquarters in Washington, and is
conducted along uniform lines through
out the whole country.
As a part of this campaign, prelimi
nary weight tests are being conduct
ed In a few of our schools to deter
mine 'the physical condition of the
children, since physical condition is
the first pre-requislte to school effi
ciency. The figures which I present
are from the inital tests made recent
ly nt the ' Lihue and Hanamaulu
schools.
We are provifled with classroom
weight record charts, from Washing
ton, giving standard normal weights,
corresponding to heights. An 8 year
old boy 48 inches In height ought to
weigh 55 lbs. If he doesn't, and falls
short 5 or 7 or 10 pounds it Is a case
of mal-nutrition calling for attention
and remedy. Of course he may be a
small boy for his age in which case
his proper weight will be less. He Is
his height.- From the tabulated fi
his height from the tabulated figures
which we have made up 1 condense
the following results of these weigh
ing tests.

Children In the school 331. Deficient

You will notice that the deficiency
per centage of the Lihue school Is
much greater than that of the Hana
maulu school. This will probably
come as a surprise to some as it has
been generally supposed that Hana
maulu was In bad shape In the res
pect.
So it was, at the beginning of the :
school year, much worse probably
guros which we have made up I con
dense tha following results of these '
thing had to be done. Private initia
tive came to the rescue of the school
and for several months the mal-nutri-1
tion children have been receiving reg-'
ular rations of rich milk, crackers etc. I
and this remedial treatment has re-
duced the efficiency per centage from '
40, or much more than 40, to 23. j
The 40 per cent deficiency of Lihue '
is tne mute demand for a kitchen, and
the 23 per cent of Hanamaulu is the
earnest of what a kitchen will do.
And it will do much more. A snack
in the middle of the morning to a Jew
ravenous children, a bleswing though
it be. isn't a circumstance to the lunch
that a proper kitchen will dispense
to the whole horde of children that '
will line up every noontime. Why!
you will see them fatten under your
eyes. , I

with weight statistics, running back
into the. past. It is a great pity that we
haven't such statistics for Kapaa, be
fore and since the inauguration of the
kitchen there. They would tell a
very convincing tale of the value of
the kitchen. Hereafter we will have
such statistics.
Every school, presumably, will keep j
such records monthly tests this
coming year, and it will be very easy
to prove or disprove the usefulness
and efficiency of the school kitchen.
In the meantime we claim that the
present deplorable condition of mal
nutrition In the Lihue school demands
a school kitchen as its only adequate
remedy.
