Nor is the subject of citizenship overlooked. Instruction in
civics, in social rights and responsibilities are given. It is believed
one half the troubles between
employers and employees, between capital and labour, will
disappear when the workmen
have the education to which they
are entitled, and better understand what their rights are and
how to secure them; what their
obligations are and how to observe them, It is recognized that
with every citizen fast coming to
feel and assert his equal powers,
every citizen must be well informed; that he must give and
take in reason and in understanding; that it-is not enough to have
good workers, but that there
must also be everywhere a high
and intelligent standard of citizenship. A man's, life is a million

When old enough to enter upon
some permanent employment
seriously, the boys find they have
lost through misuse much of what
they learned at school, and in
most cases have acquired a habit
of irregular application that
greatly impedes their progress.
Truly the most dangerous point
in the lives of school children in
an elementary school is the moment at which they leave it. To
counteract this danger prevoca-
tional classes have been formed
and into these classes all students
who are of leaving age and who
do. not desire to go to high school,
are induced to enter.
The lessons are centered round
hand work; the course of work
being of an industrial nature.
Every endeavor is made to give
the boys and girls an opportunity
to feel their particular bent and
to find out where their interest
lies, so that they may select a
trade for which they are suited,
and in which they may reasonably be expected to take delight
and be successful.
In Vancouver city the school
trustees enrolled 145 pupils for
such a class last August. The
boys have constructed their own
benches for carpentry, made cup
boards, drafting tables, stools,
and a roll top desk for the instructor. They are now busy
drawing up plans and specifications for-a manual training centre
the erection of which the school
trustees are going to entrust
them.
The girls go out purchasing
and examining goods at first hand
with their instructor, and study
cooking, dressmaking, millinery,
and household economics.
If at the age of 14 years the
boys or girls must go to work,
night schools are established at
which they can continue their
education. This many thousands
have done, greatly to their credit
and profit. Progressive countries,
however, have long since gone I clearly in the way a man spends an appeal to all Belgians living in

INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION.
[Continued from first past*.]
"character, brains and muscles of
the people, they are doing an infinitely greater work than merely
attending to the physical resources of the country They arc
aware that the future developments of their industries call for
such a step. The creation of high-
grade productive enterprises
which pay good wages nnd demand efficient workers call for
the training of large masses such
as the public schools alone can
reach.     ,
To complete the scheme of vocational training industrial bureaus have been established, with
directors and vocational advisors
in charge. Here is the centre of
information on trade and commerce. The record cards for each
boy and girl goes to the bureau.
On that card is tabulated the
qualities and aptitude of the person; what trade thc person wishes
to work at, and what trade they
seem specially fitted for.
Employers pf labour are in
touch with this department, and
the director undertakes the work
of introducing as many boys and
girls to the work of their choice
as it is possible to do.
Moreover, they learn full particulars of each trade before they
go, and each workshop and factory is carefully inspected.
Where the work and conditions
are poor and not favourable, the
young people are warned. The
youthful though expensively
trained products of the day school
are not allowed to run amuck and
get into the hands of unscrupulous people who take advantage
of their fellowmen in order to
gain profits. Thus a haphazard
system has given way tc a well-
[ organized course, which is without doubt working out in a most
successful manner.
