Why Pay More? LANGUAGE STUDY Value of Foreign Languages to Students Stressed in Honolulu Schools; May He Added (o Courses HONOLULU. The educational process in Hawaii, International in scope ana cnarncier as it is, neither contemplates nor apprehends the submergence of the more ancient cultures represented in this meeting place of all peoples. On the contrary, it hopes to perpetuate the best or the old and to blend it im perceptibly with the new, in the in tellectual molding of the youth of Hawaii, who derive from most of the races and nations of the world. Thus there are to be found in Honolulu several "foreign language schools," so called, In which Oriental children arc taught the language and some thing of the culture of their fore lathers, this In addition to their studies In the territorial schools, The largest of these foreign lan guage schools, and also the largest Chinese school outside China Itself, is tne Mun Lun Chinese School. In Honolulu, which has at present more tnan 1,100 scholars. These range in age from 6 to 7 to 18, for the in stltution includes all grades from the primary up to and through the high school with a complete course covering 12 years. It has been in existence for about 20 years, constantly growing in size and scope, receiving its chief support from the o Chinese of Hawaii and from its exceedingly small tuition charge, which is only about $1 month. The principal, Dr. Chang Wan, born in China, is a scholar of exceptional learning, having been educated in universities in both China and Japan. Several of the teaching staff, which numbers 21, are of American birth, and one is a graduate of the University of Hawaii.

For here the Chinese youth puts in several hours of study n day, including Saturdays, in addl tion to his work at the territorial public schools. The two are, of course, entirely separate, and neither this nor any of the other foreign language schools In any way interferes with the educational proc ess nt the American institutions, 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 the foreign languages school In Ha waii as at present constituted and directed, and the enthusiasm manifested by the great body of pupils at the Mun Lun School, some of whoso final year young people are already studying at the internation al University of Hawaii, cannot but augur well for their future useful ness and loyalty as American citi zens. Cooper Addresses Ec and Ag Students Thomas P. Cooper, Dean of the College of Agriculture, addressed the seniors of the College of Agriculture and the members of the home eco nomlcs department at the judging pavilion, Saturday, April 5. This was the third of a series of month ly addresses which are given each semester. The subject of Dean Cooper's ad dress was "Positions." Among the various qualities which he believes are necessary to success are: belief in one's profession, common sense, industry, and Integrity. The fine thing about these qualifications is that they may be developed. As different positions require different qualifications, it is necessary for the senior to analyze himself and to find his fitness for any certain type of work. "A college course," concluded Dean Cooper, "does not give one the right to expect an administrative or exec utive position at the outset of his career. He must work from the be ginning. He should start in one type of work and keep with this until he has reached success." Manuscripts Course Offered at School RICHMOND, Va. Edwin A. Al derman, president of the University of Virginia, announces the Institution is prepared to offer aid in the preservation, study, interpretation and publication of old letters, books, newspapers and documents, both public and private, that tell of the past social, industrial, political and intellectual life of the common wealth. Already more than 2,000 manu scripts have been catalogued and placed in fireproof cases. These in elude letters to and from Thomas Monroe, Richard Henry Lee and many others. Many of these are of great historic Interest and impor tance. mmftmmm:mmmmmmwm RoamiN' the RialtO With Thomas L. Riley With the fourth S. S. Van Dine novel In film form opening tomorrow and John Gilbert's latest talkie on deck, next week's cinema fare should prove popular with the fans. TLR Sign In the Ben All marquee: "Buster Kcaton In Free and Easy with Anita PaRc." A rather enviable position, say the men folk. TLR "Redemption," taken from Lvod Tolstoi's play "The Living Corpse" and starring John Gilbert, opens at the strand theater Sunday. This Is the second talking picture for Gil gert and although the first, "His Glorious Night," was not received any too well, this star remains high in box office value. "RedemDtlon" is a romantic drama of Russia and Eleanor Boardman, Renee Adoree and Conrad Nagel are In the supporting cast of the Metro production. Due to the past great necking bouts staged by Gilbert the flaps and their purple-suite- d boy friends will, In all probability, go in heavy for "Redemption." TLR You will like "Paris Bound." This picture is now playing and the performance of Ann Harding is truly great. Although "Montana Moon" is getting a big play at the b. o. I could scarcely remain seated during its unreeling. Inane dialogue and overacting killed my deep love for the motion picture. TLR "The Benson Murder Case" (Par). will open at the Kentucky theater tomorrow and It is honed that it maintains the former standard set by the other Van Dine novels which have been talkerized. William Powell is seen In the Phllo Vance role of "The Benson Murder Case" and he is said to eclipse his performances in "The Canary Murder Case" and "The Greene Murder Case."

He was told five cents a word for ten words, with no charge for the signature. "There will bo no charnn for thn signature?" he repeated. "That's right," said the clerk.
