FRIDAY, MAKCH. 25, 1921  '^^$r8  $1.00 pkk Year-  AMENDMENTS TO THE SCHOOL ACT  I CAUSE CONSIDERABLE COMMENT  The  Minister of Education has introduced a bill into -the house to a-  ineud the Public Schools Act of the.  Pi ovine?.. This bill is causing-considerable comment both in and out  of the House. Besides the many  good points'that the bill contains it  also contains BOihe that at the present time may or may not be in the  intrests of the taxpayers of the province.  ' The number of pupils required to  establish a high school is to be  changed from twenty to fifteen. In  many country place and in small  towns of the Fraser Valley, where  the people have wanted to establish  a high school it has often been found  that, it^was hard to get the number  required and the pupils have had  to leave home and, attend high ^school  in other parts of the province.  In Abbotsford it has been hard to  get ��������� the required ��������� twenty, but now  tnat the act is to be changed here  is a better chance that the number  will be such that the superior school  can be changed to a high school  with  all  its  advantages.  ���������Superior schools may be established, according to the new amendment,  where there are eight pupils and the  last year of the public school course  arid the first two years of the high  ���������school work can be taught.  Arrangements? are- also -to be'pro-"  "vided "for the interchange of pupils  between schools and for the accommodation of .either district of pupil?  resident in the other, and may fix  tho amount to be paid for the accommodation and instruction of such  pupils, and "may also determine the  schools such pupils may respectively  attend. The consent of the ratepayers will have to be obtained.  Trustees are given the option of  having school during the months of  July and August, the section in re-1  gard to this reading is as follows: j  "The Board of Scliool Trustees" I  may, at their discretion, maintain in  operation during the months of July  and August in any year one or moro  class-rooms in any school building,  with sufficient teachers, for the in-  structionof pupils who have been  unable to complete the work of the  provious .schol year, and who desire, through study and attendance  at school during the summer vacation to gain admission to a higher  grade at the time of the reopening  of the schools in September.    All ex-  expenses", and  reads as  traordinary  follows.  "The   Board   of   School   Trustees,  instead of exercising the powers bestowed   upon   them  under  the   other  provisions  of this section   in   respect  of special or extraordinary expenses,  may, on  or before  the  fifteenth   day  of  February  in   each   year,  cause  to  be prepared and laid before the Municipal   Council   a.   detailed   estimate  of the sums required  for special or  extraordinary expenditure   .for    that  year,   which   sums  shall  not   in   any  one year exceed one mill on the dol-'  lar of property assessable for school  purposes   in   the     municipal    school  district;   and which sums    shall    be  provided   by   the   Municipal   Council  and  shall  be-kept in, a separate account by the municipal treasurer and  paid over by him from time to time,  upon  the  order of    the    Board    of  School Trustees, to the several  persons to whom,such moneys are payable, any unexpended balance at the  end of each year being kept in  the  account to  the  credit of the Board.  It shall not be   necessary   by reason  of anything contained in the 'Municipal   Act" or   in   this   Act   for ' any  by-law  for   the  providing  or raising  of money -by a Municipal Council for  purposes of this subsection to be submitted to  orc receive the .assent ;,_.of  the- electors-of"���������thV*"munlcipaTi'ty.'���������""  ��������� Then there is another clause which  gives  Trustee  Boards the  opportunity of building  teachers'  residences,  wlien sanctioned by the Council    of  Public Instruction."  Then another clause reads:  "Where a united school district is  created by the union of a city school  district and a district municipality  school district, or a high-school area  is created by the- union of a city  school district and one or more district municipality school districts,the  municipal treasurer of the city municipality shall be the treasurer of the  united school district or high school  area, and the Board of School Trustees for the united school district or  high-school area shall have power  to pay part of the treasurer's salary, and to pay all expenses necessarily incurred by him upon the order of the Board in providing and disbursing moneys for school purposes  The auditor of the united school district or high school area shall be appointed by the Municipal Council of  the district municipality, or by the  concurrent action of (.the several dis-  the case may  be  Mllfi.

But the clause that is causing  considerable comment is the one  which gives tho trustees the power  to add one mill  each year  for "ex-  union of two or more municipal  school districts, a by-law therefor  shall be submitted by the respective  Municipal Councils to the electors  in each municipality, and the result  shall be determined by the aggregato  vote of the electors In the municipalities.

There arc few men or women today who do not wish  to give Ihe boys and girls of the rising generation a belter chance lo secure an education than they themselves  had, and most men and women who are taxpayers are  willing lo'M'oot the bill.' There is, however, a tendency',  these days lo be jusl a little, critical of our present  school results; and that is perhaps the reason for the  question of education being so much to the lore these  days in.discussion.   .,  We have thought that we have been doing excellent  work m educating the boys and girls, but now that it is  costing so many dollars, and appears lo be increasing  during a period when we are much burdened with  i.,_... i:      ��������� i ill       ". ��������� . ��������� . .  .

A correspondent of the Toronto Telegram, writing  of the English school system, savs of the process of elementary education in the Old Country that it "equips  graduates with an amazing i'und of knowledge " More  specifically, he says:  "II enables every child to read a newspaper intelligently and intelligibly. When he turns his back on the  schoohiouse he is able lo talk about and 'work' problems in practical geometry and mensuration, fractions, interest and the metric system. )  "He can read weather charts and explain the relation  oi temperature, wind, rain and frost to plant growth.  minprnUnf n "e "^Jghborhood are familiar and the -inch v,e venture totMnk VouhT^  mineuls of the earth generally-have been seriously S n Canadians both east and  studied during the last school year.

But there are times when it  is no moan thing to consider the  value of an ideal, and one of those  tiinen is fast approaching, if it is  not already here.  Just 500 years ago May 30th, our  forefathers in .England were guilty  of a breach of honor and of chivalrv  against tho French in the burning of  Joan of Arc, the heroine peasant  girl who must stand for all time as  (he personification of high idealism  and patriotism. To this day we are  ashamod of the thing, and make no  attempt to gloss it over.  Now as   we    approach the    500th  anniversary of that hateful deed   our  suggestion   is   this:   Here   in   Canada  the children  of France and  of  Eng-'  land are Jinked together in one great  nation.

BILL  WAS   THROWN  OUT IN   COMMITTEE  saaaaBBiasa  There who look, beyond the callow  ncss of its youth  to the sturdy efficiency and  beneficent stature which  awaits the United  Fanner movement,  in this province will breathe again.  The political question has been  settled aiuh settled in the right way.  Organization for business has had Its  sponsors at previous conventions.  The time for such is not yet���������atleast  not on the grand or    provincial-wide  scale. .  The task ahead is mainly educational. Analysing this, he or she who  cares to think will find that.the keystone on which the union is built is  the local secretary. In every portion  of this province the government lias  the oportunity of providing a legitimate and badly-needed ' helpmate in  the agricultural or district representative.  There are still some farmers who  shy at the word "education." They  may have attended the finest school's  in the world, or imbibed rudimentary  knowledge in a log shack, but they  alike are frequently absolutely ignor  ,mt. of the first principles governing the complex business world in  which they are treated as pawns.  Every captain of industry, every  -oally great general, scientist, teach-  ?r, philosopher, knows that he must  forever be learning, must never  'nil to use every means to keep hlra-  <?oir nbrest of modern developments  and  discoveries. .      ������������������  Yet there are some farmers wnu  think they have nothing to ��������� learn,  nothing to gain���������much less give���������  from' meeting their fellows in conclave, be it of union or other organization. Some "haven't time." It is  well-known that the busiest and most  hardworking���������and frequently most  successful���������men have always time to  spare.  P'arming is the host, complicated  of all the occupations to be chosen  by man. He who quickest gets "education" may go far, but not so far  as when the farm community of  which he is one member, collectively  gets "farmer business sense."  To apply this is, or should be, the  VICTORIA, March 19.���������The bill  which sought to eliminate certain ad  vertising boardings at Active Pass  .and elsewhere, was sent to the scrap  heap in the Legislature yesterday  afternoon after the mover of the  measure, Mr. M. B. Jackson, and  others had made a spirited defence  of their attitude to eliminate whai  they termed was a growing evil. Mr.  M. A. Macdonald led the atttack to  the effect that property rights were  affected in the bill., Mr. Bowser stated that it was all very well for the  Islands (Mr. Jackson) pushing the  bill, but he concurred with M. Mac-  dronald and Mr. Jackson, who was  so strong on constitutional matters,  could so casually wipe out those  Tights. Tourists and others who objected to these signs at the Pass  couid go to the other side of the boat  Mr. Jackson declared he had no  intention of interfering with property rights. His bill was not reactionary. It was impossible to go  from one side of..thc l)oat to the  other as suggested by the Opposition leader in that the signs adorned both sides of the Pass.  Major Burde���������Why not look at  the sky?  Mr. Jackson came back with the  statement that Ontario had adopted  such legislation, as lias New Zealand and a number of States in the  United States. Mr. Pauline (Saan-  ich) supported Mr. Jackson, but the  bill was not reported to the Mouse  which means that it is lost sight of  for one year at least.  Mr.  Adam   S.  Johnston  represent-  'cd the advertising   agents    involved  n  the bill.  NEW  PROPOSALS AS  TO  LIQUOR IN  HOTELS  VICTORIA.
