On the contrary, it hopes to perpetuate the

Hawaii, who derive from most of the

there are to be found in Honolulu

This point should be stressed, for
there have not been lacking critl
cisms of the general Idea of foreign
language schools in Hawaii on the
ground that if American citizens
are to be made of the Oriental youth
of the territory none but American
influences should be about them.
This, however, is extremely narrow
"One Hundred Percentism," for it
should go without saying that there
is much about the Oriental cultures
well worth preserving. One of the
aims of the educational process in
Hawaii is internationalism, for it is
obvious that that process could not
hope to succeed in such a place as
this if arbitrary nationalistic distinctions were to obtain. There can,
therefore, be no valid objection to
