managed to get three baskets, Calder
got two and Daniels and Courley one

louls and these were converted hring-
ine the Tigers total score up to 27
points. The Federals didn't do so
well in this half. Lawrence shot two
goals and Wood and Dupont one each,
they had no opportunities to convert
louls so tbe linal scorn was 3», giving

for eai lens. However, the grounds
must conform to a certain minimum
standard; e.g., a seven or eight-room
school must have n minimum area of
two and a half acres, and the grunt
for such grounds will he $2-75. Hut
"Di the case of city schools where
the area of the grounds falls below
lb'   minimum stated nb'ovc, and where
an enlargement of the (jyounds would
entaffl a very large expenditure by the
school board the deparement may, on
the   idvlce  of the local      school      in- I
spector nnd the    director,  contribute '
the amount allotted to the improvement   of grounds  of  the same  area as
;recorded   in the table of  grants." And ,

neat  and attractive from      year     to
vear, the department will make nn-
nuallly certain maintenance grants
based upon the reports of local school
inspectors." I'nder this scheme a
seven or ei'-'ht room school may receive n grant of $*)l annually.
This is an exceedingly generous
plan aud should be a great stimulus
to school boards to beautify the
school  grounds of the  province.
And this is not all; fnr the department is arranging to establish a provincial nursery [or the supply of
Isuitnhle shrubs and plants free to
school boards. Even now a limited
number of suitable trees nnd ornn
mentnl shrubs are available for free
distribution to schools from the
government nursery at Hlssondale.
