Secretary of School Board
Presents the Case of
Lack of Housing for
Pupils to the Taxpayers
of District
Editor Qrand Forks Sun:
Sir:—The Grand Forks school
board bave bad under consideration
for a considerable time the problem
of more adequate accommodations
for our higb school classes, and in
order tbat tbe parents and taxpayers
might be more fully informed on
tbe situation, would beg to place
the following facte before tbe public:
At the present the the higb school
pupils are being accommodated in
the conrt house. These accommodations, afthougb never entirely satisfactory eve with comparatively
email classes, have been the means
of serving the necessary purpose and
at the same time saving considerable
expense to the ratepayers, but, owing to greatly increased attendance,
have now become inadequate. Tbe
high school inspector in bis report
dated October 29th, 1923, remarks
as follows:
"Conditions in the first year room
are very unsatisfactory. Forty-one
pupils are orowded into a room tbat
can not properly accommodate
twehty. It is impossible for some to
see parts of tbe blackboard. I can
not eee bow next year's pupils can
be housed in tbis builbing if the
public school sends up a greater
number of pupils next year.
The building of a high school can
not be put off much longer.'"
Second and third year rooms are
little less satisfactoiy, while no
space is available for the practical
teaching of chemistry.
The enrollment in the high sohool
at present is 82. Of 18 in matriculation and under the conditions
mentioned where pupils are handicapped by lack of apace and inability
to see blackboards, it can not be expected tbat more tban 15 will pass,
leaving 67 still iu tbe high school.
With entrance classes totalling 59,
and with possibly 50 passing next
June, tbe enrollment in September,
1924 may be 117. It would at once
be apparent tbat witb no lurther
space available in the present quarters, it will be entirely impossible
to continue tbe c asses in tbeir
present rooms. The atteudsnce at
publio school at tbe present time
would indicate tbat tbe high school
classes will be large for several years
to come, while tbe subdividing of
tbe large areas in tbe valley into
smaller farms under more intensive
methods of farming owing to the
insta'ling of irrigation, will in al*
probability bring more families into
the school district and more pupils
to tbe schools.
Each teacher in tbe high rcbool
takes oertain subjects in each of tbe
three olasses. Tbis arrangement
makes it absolutely necessary tbat
all classes in the higb school should
be in the same building, or io buildings immediately adjacent.
Owing to congestion in tbe first
year room, oo several occasions pupils who bad failed iu ^beir regular
examinination have been promoted
to a higher grade, much to tbe detri-
ment of these pupils' wellaie aod of
the whole class.
At the present time one of
the classes of tbe public school
it    being    housed    ia   the   old
high school building on Sixth
street. The school board hav? already spent eome 1400 on tbis build
ing to make it tenable, but it is very
far from being satisfactory and
would require considerable more repairs to make it comfortable. Tbe
costs of upkeep in matter of fuel,
janitoi set vices, 'etc , are necessarily
much higher proportionately than
if this class were in the sime building aB the other classes, wbile its
distance from Central school precludes any possibility of efficient
supervision by tbe public school
principal, wbich reacts to tbe detriment of the pupils.
Faced with the possible necessity
of a new building, tbe board have
secured from ths governments plans
of a four-room brick building re
cently erected at Salmon costing
#30,000. Local rougb estimates
would place the present cost of euch
a building at $25,000, while a six-
room building on the same plane
would probably cost some 130,000.
An eight-room frame building
erected two years ago at Summer-
land cost 135,000.
On the bans of a six-room scdool
costing 130,050, and a government
gran of 33J per per, witb debentures at 6 per cent for twenty years,
it wjuld require an annual levy of
some 1J mills on the dollar on the
present assessment. Tbe possibility
of a larger government grant might
redvee the levy slightly.
The school board feel lhat the
matter requires considerable serious consideration by tbe city coun
cil, wbo would be called upon to do
the necessary financing; by the
taxpayers, who would be called
upon to furnish the funds after first
having, by tbeir-votes, approved the
necessary expenditure; and by the
parents, tbe health and education
of whose children are at stake.
The fullest discussion is invited
by the board and any feasible suggestions, either to tbe board or
through the press, will be appreciated.
Thanking you, Mr. Editor, for
space in your paper to place betore
youi maoy readers a matter whicb
is causing tbe school board the most
serious and careful consideration,
and wbicb ie of the most vital interest to all our residents
On behalf of tbe school board,

•Mt alarming number of accidents
-hrough reckless driving of autome-
liles, particularly on level railroad
crossings, the Board of Railway
Commissioners for Canada hai rt-
luested the Canadian Pacific Railway to submit information bearing
lpon similar dangerous practices by
motorists on various portion* of its
syatem so that use may be made of
the information wkh a view to endeavoring, through education, to
minimise the occurrence of such dangerous practices.
in a Bulletin issued by the Board
of Railway Commissioners on June
15th, 1923, 54 cases of danger at protected crossing* are cited for the
period Oetober, 1923, ti May, 1923,
and of these fifty are declared to
have bem due to the carelessness of
motor drivers. "Motor accidents,"
says the bulletin, "are becoming
more frequent. Every (ane motorist
deplores this. If accidents are to bt
lessened, the sane motorist must educate the culpably negligent motor-
AU highway crossings are by law
protected by signs, and they are only
dangerous when the driver of the automobile makes them so. They an

a small part of the care they exercise
in turning on a dty street. It is the
motorist's carelessness that nukes
them dangerous. The train has right

happen if the plainly teen warnings
are disregarded at a point where the
motor car caa stop whit* the train
The surprising part of it also fs
thai safeguards and precautions
erected by the railroads art to often
entirely ignored. Time after time
newspaper reports show that crossing alarm bells, barrier gates and
even watchmen waving "stop" Agists mean nothing to the man in the
motor car who it determined to beal
the train to it.
Coroners' juries are usually more
discriminating and put the blame
where it belongs, but the general
public, seeing the usual newspaper
heading, "Train Crashes into Motor
Car," starts out with the impression
that the train must necessarily be to
blame, when, an a matter of fact, a
fairer statement of the case would
be "Another Auto Gets in Path of
Fast Train." Quite at often, too, the
heading should read, "Flying Auto
Dashes into Moving Train." Frequently the auto strikes the traia
well behind the engine, a convincing
indication that the motorist too frequently treats the railroad crossing
with the same casutl notice that he
Rivet the intersection of a quiet
country road.
Out of 32 level crossing accidents
that happened In Ontario during
1922, 22 were tht result of the motorist not heeding the ttop signal, and
seven were the retult of running into
the lowered gatet or actually passing
under them after they were lowered
or while they were being lowered.
One man had no headlights and apparently did not tee the gates were
down while the remainder in other
wayt tried to cross in front of th*
engine in order to save time.
In an editorial on thit quettion, the
Toronto Star sayt that: "In a country Mre thia, with ita magnificent distance*, and railway systems with
twenty thousand miles of track, th*
time may never come when all level
crossings wBl be eliminated. With

two reatooa: (1) because it it th*

Mayor Delivers an Eloquent Address—Monument Is Covered With

"It would seem hardly necessary
tbat tbere sbould be need for an
address on an occasion sucb as tbat
for wbich we are meeting bere today. Rather would it appear a time
for meditation and reverence tban
of words," said Mayor Hull at tbe
ceremonies in. connection witb the
observance of Armistice day on
Sunday last.
"But we are retained," he continued, "of tbe day five years ago
wben a weary world beard witb
gladness the news ot the armistice
being proclaimed, tbat hostilities
had ceased.
"The peace wbicb followed the
signing of tbat historic armistice,

"It is to tbe memory of tbese men
and for tbeir sake that we again approach this memorial.
"Although the world perhaps has
not realized all the hopes and desires expected as a result of tbat
great war, and many may well wander whether, after all, the price paid
was not too great, the sacrifice too
heavy, the fact that we are today,
five years after, again standing before this memorial, again show ng
that respect whicb we did at tbe
time of the unveiling, reading tbeir
names anew and cherishing their

heads in prayer and lifting our
voices in song to the Almighty,

An Italian company has for some time been
profitably exploiting the steam of subterranean
origin continually being belched out of the fissures in the earth in the volcanic region of
Tuscany. In the vicinity the necessary plant
has aeen erected, turbine engines installed,
and the electricity generated, which is supplied to many towns in Tuscany, and as far as
Follonica on the coast, a distance of 50 miles.
The steam is carried through pipes to tubular
boilers, where its heat turns pure' water into
steam, which operates the engines connected
with tha generating plant. The current is
transformed to high voltages for long distance
transmission, and is subsequently lowered and
distributed by subsidiary companies.
We talk of au engine being so many horsepower. Why? James Watts, when he was
bringing the steam engine into commercial
use (rather more than a century ago) found
some uniform standard of comparison necessary in selling his engines. He therefore
worked out the "footpounds" that the average draught horse could manage in a minute,
and afoer various experiments settled this
somewhat arbitrarily at 33,001). That is, he
reckoned one horse as being able to raise 33,-
000 pounds 1 foot in 1 minute. Then he applied this to mechanical power, and an engine
which developed enough power to lift 33,000
pounds 1 foot in 1 minute was scheduled as of

adopted as Britain's national dog. Practically
every modern breed of dog has has been
evolved by careful selection, and consequently each nation has bred the type of dog it particularly favors aud which is most suitable for
its particular wants. The bulldog is really a
relation of the mastiff, whose ancestor was
probably intoduced into the country by the
ancient liomans. With the introductions of
the tierce lighting sports of bull and bear
baiting, where these animals were tethered to

bulldog type was just the thing. In spite of

A new Texas scheme proposes a rifle to fire
a series of ice bullets into the soil. Each bullet is directed into the root-system of an individual plant or cluster of plants. The machine
itself will be adjusted on a tractor containing
a refrigerator that will keep it perpetually
loaded with ice-slugs. When the ice slug has
found lodgment near the root of the plant it
will presently melt. In ordinary irrigation the
greater part of the water finds lodgment at a
distance from the plant root and either soaks
into the earth or evaporates into the ap:. The
new plan will prevent this waste. The chief
drawback will be the high cost of mmufactur -
ing the ice.
With the vote of the Turkish assembly at
Angora    the Ottoman    empire    went   the
way of the Russian, the Austrian and the
German empire. It is six hundred years since
Osman,   the founder of the dynasty, established his control over tho  territories  round
Angora, which i.s therefore the  birthplace, as
it is  the grave, of the imperial power of the
Osmanli. Uy the new constitution the sultan
is forever deposed,  and  no  member of the
royal house can hold either oivil  or  military
office under the republic.   There  is to be a
president, elected for a term of four or   five
years,  but the chief executive power will remain in the hands of the premier, who is to be
responsible to the national assembly.    What
is to  be the place of Mustapha Kemal in the
new regime does not appear; it has been reported that he meant to withdraw from politics, but until some one of an equally commanding personality arises Mustapha Kemal
is pretty sure to be the final authority at  Angora.   The  new admiiiistration at Constantinople was hardly seated in the old capital after

was always given a turtle for bringing them.
There were many casualties among the turtles

"Wonderful indeed is the power of
the voice."—Cicero.
The power of the voice is the success
ofthe telephone. It was in the endeavor
to transmit sound that the telephone was
invented, and the great factor of its de
velopment into an article of very common
use is that direct conversation may be
carried on.
Because it enables one's personality to
be sent is the reason that the telephone
promotes friendships and intimacy, and
brings about closer relations between
those in business. The pleasure of hear*

Tho Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently obtained, are: "To provide a Home and It^fugo for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free Scientific Care, Training and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
e»en a few of the many of suoh i*rfortu nates, who, for the lack of suoh service, perish every year; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
sohool age witb normal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a large and greatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful, enquiry
at the Government offices in the verious provinces reveals thi? fact that there
are at the presant time nearly 250 Infant Blind in the Dominion. Nothing
has yet been done for those helpless little ones. In the United States,'16

SECOND in Canada. To reach this worthy end money is urgently required.
Fifty Thousand Dollars is the present objective of the Boa.id. While the
Home is to be located in Ottawa it will take in the Baby Blind from every
province, so that this APPEAL for funds will be Dominion wide, and an

Picture a little clearing at tlie side of the railway
track in the heart of North Ontario. All ahout
are the hilly forests of Jack-pine, hemlock and flaming
yellow poplar. A brilliant autumn sun falls on lake
and forest and rocky cliff and ln the centre is a little
iiatchof cleared ground surrounding a tiny log cabin.
At Is door a woman and three or four sturdy children
ire grouped. They are listening. From behind the hUls
igaln comes tho exultuiit whistle of a locomotive, and
i*i a few moments the train sweeps Into view. It flashes
,-aat drawn by an engine of tho latest type Buch as
mglnaers talk of with joy, and including six plum-
olored coaches, steel built from end to end. Their
.iirnishcd sides reflect thc warm autumn sun. Bright
nans trimmings and polished windows glisten as the
vain sweeps along Its narrow path .towards the -West,
i thing of pride and power.
The children standing beside the log cabin are silent;
jch holds a tiny flag that carries to the train a message
if greeting, for David Lloyd Oeorge is passing by. The
iltle Welshman of humble origin, the war-time Prime
Minister of Imperial Britain Is on his way from Toronto
fo Winnipeg and all along the railroad the people come
Iown to see him pass.
It wos a wonderful trip. Heralded by newspaper
front pages and by years of power, the man who led
half a world In war, moved across Ontario through
scene after scene such as ii*.<s which has been sketched
"What a country, what a wonderful country! !". It
was Lloyd George who spoke Seated in the drawing
room of the private car at the end of the train he gazed
over the countless lakes and endless forests that flew
past About him were one or two officials of the
railway that carried him on his way, and a large
number of newspaper representatives for whom accommodation was provided on the train. It was the time
of the morning Interview, when the press men gathered
to ask him questions bearing on the news of the day
which had come to the train by radio from*- all parts
of the world, but mostly from Europe, and to every
question came the Lloyd George answer, quick and to
the point—no evasion, even when the question was a
little personal, as uow and then it might be. But the
questions were mostly rerelant to the great issues of
the day. The twenty odd newspaper people from Great
Britain, United States and Canada were the pick [of
"the game." They and the moving picture men, tjhe
newspaper reporters of the camera, were a "star"
•rowd, and millions of people had from them a dally
report of what Lloyd George said, did and looked ll|te
during his flying trip over the Canadian Pacific line:
It took a lot ol accommodation to care for these
people. The whole train was the last word ln construction, and no finer train ever moved over steel
rails. It was a credit to Canadian workmanship as is
oxemplified at the Canadian Pacific Angus Shops al
Montreal where it was built, and hundreds of thousands
of Canadians admired lt when lt stood at the Toront'
Exhibition this year for that purpose.
Ilie baggage car, like all the rest, was of steel.   Th
(Using oar was in command of "Jlmmie" Watson, thi
man who looked after the Prince of Wales' menu wtaei
he made his first trip across Canada.   There was iar
all steel standard sleeper and two of the ten-compart
ment cars that are becoming more and more populai
as they are better known.    Behind them rode Lloyd
George's private  car.    Both    American    and    Brittel
correspondents had seen nothing better than thia train
In  some respects they had not seen their equal one
tliey were loud ln their praises.   When they were told
lt was regular equipment such as runs on the "*TranB-
L'anada" they were all amazement.   Dame Lloyd George
and Miss Megan were no less appreciative than was
their famous husband and father.   They went throagh
the train and examined lt all, and the Utohen of tbe
dining car  was of the most  especial  interest to the
ladles.   After having seen ttie comfort of the compartment cars, Miss Megan appropriated one of the eom-
partments for her own use.   At the conclusion of the
trip Mr. Lloyd George   expressed  his   admiration and
gratitude to the Canadian Pacific Railway for the wky
be and his family had been taken care of while passing
over the line.
As far west an Fort William, J. C. Soully, General
Manager Canadian Pacific lines accompanied the twin,
while D. C. Coleman, Vice-President, Western lines
took charge from there on. The press arrangements
were taken care of by J. Harry Smith, the Company's
Press  Representative.

In 1839, and one of the new Pacific type locomotives
which have been placed In commission by the Canadian
Pacific Railway on all main lines, and which are chiefly
responsible for this company's "on time" feature of
serrioe. Tbe Canadian Pacific Railway have now
definitely adopted tbls design for their heavy main line
service, as representing the most desirable and efficient locomotive for economy and reliability of service,
as this particular design reduces to a minimum, consistent with capacity, tbe number of moving parts
which ls essential for reliability of service under tbe
mott exacting and severe conditions.
The capacity and weight of tbese locomotives rank
them among the biggest of their type tn the world, and
tbe largest of this design in operation in Canada The

ls obtained with 200 pounds boiler pressure, cylinders
25 inches tn diameter, 30 inch stroke and with driving
wheels 75 inches tn diameter. The weight on the three
pairs of drivers of engine ls 180,000 pounds and the
total weight of the engine and tender in working condition ts 495/100 pounds, the tender having a capacity ol
8,000 gallons ot water and 14 tons of coal.
The design of tbese locomotives was given ver*.
careful study, a trial order of engines constructed in
1919 having been made, with tests under all Canadian
conditions, which fully Justified all expectations for
reliability and economy et operation. The boiler bas
been carefully proportioned and tbe Inter-relation of
grate area, fire box volume, beat absorption rapacity
of different lengths of tube and gas areas more carefully thought ont than ls usual ln most designs, which,
coupled together with an extremely accurate dlslriii*
