PAGES 9 TO 12.
Arrangements are being made by
the Department of Education to have
a summer school like that ot last year.
Only, Instead of having the oxponses
paid by private subsctptlons of pub-llc-sjirlted
citizens as then, there Is
available appropriation out of the pub
lic treasury for the school. It will
open on July 5 and last for six weeks.
Already letters have been received
from teachers Intending to attend the
school. To many it will bo an exten
sion of last year's studies, in particu
lar those who are trying for the gram
mar school license.
Soon tho department will take up
the matter of examinations for teach
ers certificates. According to tho
new regulations there is to bo an ex
amining board consisting of some of
the supervising principals. This board
will have the work both of preparing
the questions and conducting the ex
aminations. Naturally the examina
tions for the new school year win fall
at the end of the summer school.
Assignments' of Teachers.
Another fact of Importance to the
teachers is that the department is go
ing to take up appointments and .have
all assignments completed before this
term closes on June 23, so that all will
know at that tlmo where they are go
ing to be placed for the ensuing school
The National Convention.
It Is likely there will be a goodly
number of teachers from Hawaii at
tend the meeting of the National Edu
cational Association, which will be
held In San Francisco beginning July
8 and closing July 14, where it is cer
tain that many thousand teachers from
all parts of the mainland will be pres
ent, Seveal teachers have ap
plied for passage by transports. The
replies are that they will be accommo
dated "If there is room," which Is a
doubtful condition as there are so
many troops moving.
To Print School Laws.
Arrangements are being made to
have tho school laws as they now
stand printed, together with tho rules
and regulations of tho department
which were adopted at last meeting
of the commissioners.
For Larger School Lots.
A request Is going to be made of
the Department of Public Lands to
give the educational department ai-
dltional land wherever required to
make every school lot in the Territory
at least two acres In extent. This, in
tho opinion of tho educational author!'
ties, should be the minimum size of
Department Must Move.
Like tho courts and the tax and reg
istration offices, tho educational de
partment has to find temporary quar
ters during tho reconstruction of the
Judiciary building. Proper storage for
the stock of books and school sup
plies will perhaps bo hardest to ob
tain in this connection.
Peace Day Prescribed.
A supply of Peace Day programs fof
the schpols has been received at the
education office. The commissioners
having expressed themselves as satis
fied that the schools should observe
Peace Day, this Is now added to tho
list of days for special exercises which
hitherto has comprised Arbor Day,
Lincoln's Day, May Day and Flag
Day. May 18 will bo observed as
Peace Day with appropriate exercises
