WEDNESDAY,   MA ROM  I90ij  PRICE FIVE CENTS  ���������'���������������������������\-'*\  SCARCITY BF  SCHOOL tEaCUEBS  IS PPBVsHCl    The scarcity of certificated teachers in the province is causing city  school trustees considerable trouble  aim as the following despatch from  Vancouver will show, it has been  necessary to giant a temporary certificate to a teacher to.fill a vacancy  in the Terminal Cily school. Thc  despatch says:  There i.s food  for thought' in      the  clause- in the lust report of thi*/|''������ard  of public school  trustees stating that  a temporary certificate  had   to      be  .   granted     to   a teacher   because none  properly  qualified were available.  Speaking of  this a promiiwnt educationist remarked, that Grover Cleveland's oft-quoted sentence, "lt is     a  condition,  not a theory, that      con-  - fronts us,"  might well apply.  "There  is a good deal more in this  than  appears  at  first sight,"     continued this gentleman,   "and it would  be   well      if the     matter were given  close and  careful  consideration.   We  are making  it. harder all  thc     time  for  the  youth or  maiden  to  qualify  for a ������������������osilio'i, but are ?w������ doing anything  to   ma'e  the calling  more attractive?    The  life, of  a teacher is of  necessity one of drudgery, even     to  those who  like the work, and   the remuneration   is   inadequate- and   is  lie-  coming more so instead- of improving  There  was a time whin  there were  plenty of  teachers and  schools could  lie filled {at any time.   Many teachers  ., had come here, from;the east attracl-  '" ed  to  the   west  by  the  prospect     of  Lettering  themselifis.    Until recently  also it was much easier for the teacher at home to qualify. Th<*ii came  the normal school six months'  term,  soon  to,be increased  to a year."  "Rul'' the   normal     school course  will  make  better  teachers,  will      it  not?"  "Decidedly so. * am not, say-i"**, a������v  ' thing that  f-would 1 kc  to be      construed   into   meaning   that I am not  , in  favor  of  high  qualifications.   I b������-  lie\e that  the good teacner can only  ���������be.  m.wle out of  the man .or woman.  with.u natural  aptitude and  tlieii  by  a thorough  training.   What 1 wanted  to point out was  that  there was not  enough     .inducement.now* for  bright  young     men and  women  to  become  teachers  at all.    It is   well  to    have  weeded,out those who wished  to use  the  Leaching "profession-as a stepping  stone,  but  1 do not think we should  so arrange matters that there is   no  attraction for anyone to become /   a  teacher,'or that wc should always be  ���������importing,  either.    The   servant       is  worthy of his hire, and there is none  more   worthy  than the  conscientious  teacher."  "You think that the teachers   are  peorly paid?"  "In  many ...cases,-, yes.
