THIS PROVINCE
©wllng to thie geographical nature
of our province, the schools fall Into
several classes. First, there are two
or three cities where a splendid
organization mtiy be built up; in tlio
second ploce are the well populated
nnunclpalitites where again an elite
lent Hystem, of * well supervised
Bchoosl can be carried out. Then
there are groups of ungraded schools
a few miles apart; and lastly, there
are a great many isolated rural or
"assisted "schools.
For the groups of ungraded schools
a few mllles apart, undoubtedly a system of consolidation would great'y
imlprore -the efficiency ol' the education given, and the economy ui administration. The goviiruuiient inspectors havie already prepared valu
able reports on this problem. With
these reports as a 'basis such a sys
torn could be put into practice in
many districts in British Columlbia.
mended that this ibe done, so that
children now attending ungraded ru
ral schools with all their disadvantages may secure the advantages of
Well organized graded schools.
The isolated rural ahd "assisted"
schools present a greater problem.
The chaldron in these remote dis
tricts deserve at least as good an
education as others—perhaps a better one, because of their remoteness
froml centers of civilization. But in
order to have the best education, Uie
beat teachers should be employed
In -these ungraded schools, besides
having ao teach all grades, the teach
er, to quote the comlmlssloners
"should be able to adopt the curricu
lum, organ'zdns- and teaching meth
ods to the abilities and real life needs
of the pupils." I a a graded school
such matters as curriculum and organization would-be attended to by
the principal or -municipal inspector.
If these hare to be done by the one
teacher in an ungraded school, then
only ithe best and most experienced
teacher will really till the needs of
an ungraded rural school.
What is the actual case? The ex
perienced teacher finds employment
at a good salary in the graded schools
of cities and municipalities;while the
young student, fresh from Normal
school, unable to secure such a position, accepts a rural or "assisted"
school with a small salary, making a
mental resolution to leave it as
soon as she has a better otter.
She may have ability and enthusi-
tsm, but she lacks teaching expert
ence. Wben to this is added the
problem of simplifying the curriculum and grouping ithe grades, as
well as trying to fit the whole school
to the actual life needs of the pupils,
too often ste is "swamped" tnd fall*
back routine and formalism.
The first remedy iB more frequent
inspection, aiqonting to supervision
of rural schools. Rural Inspectors,
with their wide experience, could
often put a young teacher on the
right track in her first few weeks of
teaching, especially if thiB were followed by frequent visits. But what
help can be given in one or two visits
each year? More rural inspectors
must be employed if this plan is to
be carried out. This ls strongly
recommended In ithe survey report.
The recommendation is also made
that Normal schools sbould give a
training better calculated to fit stu
dents ti become teachers of rural
schools.
The greatest reform of all is to
find means of attracting experienced
teachers to country districts and
keeping for some time in the same
Bchool. One means of doing this
would be ao set apart a house and
piece of ground for the use of the
teacher in such a district. Thus an
experienced teacher, fond of cuntry
life, mlight be attracted by the spe-
oial considerations oliiffered, and
might be Inclined to stay some time

VETERAN JUDGE INJURED
Hon. Mr. Justice John Idington, ot
the Supreme Court of Canada, who
Is recovering from a fractured skull
as the result of a fall at his home
In Ottawa.' He Ib the oldest judge
Id the British Empire actively discharging his duties, having passed
his 86 th birthday on October 14 th.
where a home could be enjoyed This
plan has been found successful lu
in New Zealand.
The commissioners suggest a special government grant toward rural
teachers' salaries. The government
might pay direct to the teacher of a
rural school a bonus of $50 for a
second year in the same school, $100
for a third year and $150 for a, fourth
year, on condition , (hat the local
school board increase the teacher's
salary by an quivalent amount, and
th e inspectors certifies to the value
of the teacher's work, and recom
miends the grant. This would help
materially in keeping the sameteach-
er several years in the same district
and in bringing the salary in a rural
district more nearly to the level ol
those paid in cities and municipalities.
One of the handicaps of rural
schools is lack of sufflient variety
and amount of good reading. The
governrofent might give $50 per year
for this purpose, which would soon
furish a rural school with o fair collection of good books.
Readers who wonder where the
governimlent iB to find the funds for
these various grants mlay be reminded that in the financial recommendations of the school survey report it
was shown how the government
could greatly increase Its funds for
school purposes, and the burden of
education costs be equalized consid
erably througout the province.
These various reforms should do
much to solve the rural education
problem Which ls acute in British
Columbia at the present tnme.
THE   MIDDLE   SCHOOL
Aa Suggested by    the School Survey
Report
One of the underlying principles
of modern educational theory is that
education should be a preparation
for life. Our present elementary
school fulfills this aim fairly well, by
teaching the "tool subjects" which
every child will need in after life.
When the child leaves the elementary schood the parents naturally expect that tiie high school will
give him a special preparation for
going out into the world. But the
curriculum of the academic high
schoo 1 is suited only to those who
are going Into the teaching profes
sion and those who wish to matriculate Into the university.
In recent years tn taaempt has
been made to broaden our secondary
education so that it may stilt the
needs of modern industrial life. Two
technical schools hare been launched
in British Columbia, where a certain
numlber ot students are given a
high schools fit students tor office
work.
The majority ot children, however,
attend the academic high school.
The survey commissioners found in
1925 that in the high schools of British Columbia only 40 per cent of the
pupils wished to enter the teaching
profession or the university; and
yet the whole curriculum was suited
to this 40 per cent The other 60
per cent were obliged to study a
curriculum wbich would not fit
them for the various departments of
life which they wished to enter.
What Ib more necessary to any
boys or girls to fit them for life
-than a thorough knowledge of Eng
lish? Yet in the high schools of
British Columbia about 50 per cent
of the time allotted to the whole cur
riculum is given to foreign languages']
and higher mathematics; and only
15 per cent to English, the mother
tongue. This is only one eyample of
a curriculum which may suit a small
number of pupils but which certainly is not designed to fit the majority
of children for the ordinary life
which they wtill have to live.
Before the remedy ib suggested let
us look at another principle of modern educational theory: that education should suit the development of
the child, not that the child be fitted
Into a rigid system of education.
Briefly speaking, a child's develop
ment is steady and-regular from tho
age of 6 to 12; a ohange occurs. Adol
escence begins. This period con
tinues to tbout the age of 18. It may
be divided Into early adolescence
from 12 to 15, and late adolescence
from 15 to 18.
Adolescence mean., a great physical change and rapid bodily growth.
The mental change brings a widening outlook, a desire tor more varied
Interests and occupations, and agen-
eral restlessness. The emotiontl
change Is very ebident. Moods of
exhilaration and depression follow
one another, and idealism may be
developed easily. It is a period when
the varying abilities of children begin
to appear, and if these are cultivated
boys and girls may be guided into
suitable life channels of permanent
worth. \
Oui4 present elementary school system takes no cognizance of this
change in the life of the child. He_|
is given a course of study wlilch
carries him through eight grades,
usually covering the years from 6 to
14, ignoring entirely the beginning of
adolescence. Those teachers of
grades 7 and 8 deserve great credit
who manage to keep the Interest of
pupils of 13 and 14 years ot age in a
course of study which is largely a
repetition of former grades.
Ignoring early adolescence, Ignoring also the opportunity of begin
ning new subjects gradually in
grades 7 and 8, our present system
encourages pupils leaving the 8th
grade to enter high school, where
they have to begin four totally new'
subjects, and where much home work
is demanded. The whole atmosphere
is different. Many pupils find tills
new environment and course of study
quite unsulted to themtnd drop out
one "unhappy ahd inglorious year."
In fact tbe "casualties" in high
school before the final year are enormous, with their resulting loss of
both pupils' time and ratepayers'
money.
The reform suggested by the survey commissioners, which will both
suit the development of the child
and give a preparation for life is
the middle school, or junior higb
school, as it is often called. This
school covers grades 7, 8 and 9, re
celvlng pupils at obout the age of
12; and the whole atmosphere and
course of study is designed for early
alolescence.
In the suggested plan physical education is made a part f the curriculum and one period of each day is
given to it. One period of each day
is also devoted to English _Jhrough-,
out the three years. In the first j
year other compulsory subjects are
arithmetic, history, geography, nature study, hygiene, domestic science
for girls and manual training for
means of self express!on,and periods
of supervised play are available. In
all, the e periods amount to 30 per
week, but 40 are provided, so the
other 10 can be given to optional
subjects. Those who are aiming at
matriculation will begin a language.
Art and music will 'be cnosen by
those wanting a general cultural
course. Type writing and agricul
ture are other options. The curricu-
ulum of the second and third years
are imilar, - but c ontain new subjects and mtore options.
Theae options and the various
means of self expression will reveal
the varying aptitudes of pupils, who
can thus be guided a to fuaure
saudles or occupations. The middle
school is designed for all normal
children. Those who leave bchool at
15 will have received some preparation for making a living; tor use of
leisure hours, for home making, and
will have had a training wuich
should enable them to make some
contribution   to   social   progress.
Those who wish to continue their
studies will have reoeived not only
a sound ba is for further education
without the great strain of heavy
home work, but they will now have
an ; idea -which course thel wish to
take and ' for what profession or
business they wish to prepare. They-;
wlll therefore choose wisely among
technical, commercial or eniorhigh
schools.
The middle school has been found
indispensable in many countries, including   Great   Britain and the Uni
ted States. It naturally involves ex-
pen es; but though it means an Increased cost In dollars, it means far
greater efficiency and economy ln
education. It sabes years of the bal
uable libes of young people. It
stbes them from becoming failures,
misfit and delinquents. Surely the
saving far outbalances the expense.
Moreover, the recommendations of
he survey commissioners, particularly those referring to administration and finance, if carried out,
would Boon ave the actual sum it
would require to put the mlddl
school into operation in the main
centers of British Columbia.
SUGGESTED  REFORMS
IN  SCHOOL  FINANCE
Apart from the government grant
in aid of teahcers' salaries, the en
tire cost of education in British Col
umbia falls upon real properay. This
is par ly due to the 'act that the pro
vincial and Dominion governments
levy the income taxes, and the mu
niclpalities therefore feel that they
have to levy he total cost of mu
nlcipal government, incudlng school
costs, upon real prpoerty. This
burdens has become very heavy during the past few years, and there is
an increasing demand for reforms
which will lighten the burden of tax-
a ion. To quote the commissioners:
"The largest single factor and the
one that causes a seething undercurrent of agitation for a change in
school financ e is the s riking in
equality of the present school rates.."
The survey cammlssioners, after a
thorough study of the problem made
a number of ecomimeandations and
sugges ions. They found in the first
place that tremendous areas of land
in British Columbia are not taxed at
all for school purposes. This is
manifestly unfair, when education is
a provincial responsibility, and when
some municipal! ies are making
great sacrifices in order to meea the
taxation that is demanded to educate
their children properly. The land in
liri ish Columlbia hitherto untaxed
for school purposes is assessed al
$90,000,0z0. The commissioners
recom-miend that this land be taxed
diately $360,000 and would do much
to assist education in overburdened
dis rlcts.
Certain "assisted" districts also,
where the government has been paying the total cost of eachers' sal
arties, are capable of bearing part of
that cost, in the opinion of the commissioners, and a jus tax for school
purposes , instead of the merely
nominal present one, shauld be levied on the real properay in those districts.   These      "assisted"     schools
•would then have the s atus of rural
schools. These two reforms wouM
make available more money forgov-
ernment aid for overburdened dis
tricts. This mjatter of the govern
ment grants will be dealt with ln a
later paragraph.
Let us look now at those districts
and municipalities which bear thc
gheater vart of the burden of their
own school costs. Here the inepuai
ities of taxation are striking. For
examlplo, Delta—one of the richest
farming areas in Canada—has it
rate of 3.75 mills, while South Van
couver, a neighboring municipality,
made up largely of peovle with small
incomes, has a rate of 21.4. Again.
Saanich has a rate of only 7.25 mills
and in 1923-24 paid salaries as low
as $700; and yet Saanich receives
from the government treasury $580
per teacher; while South Vancouver
with a school rate four times as
great receives only $580 per teacher,
although the lowest salary paid was
$1020.
- No one set of facte explains these
inequalities. One certain factoir ls
that somes cities and municlpalitle
tax improvements and others do not.
Again the rate may be high but lev
led on an assessment tbat is below
the real value. Or the rate may be
comparatively low and levied on an
inflated assessment. Some of these
factors the commissioners consider
outside their realm, but suggest that
it would certainly be in the interests
of municipalities themselves as well
as of the province as a whole to have
a juat and suitable assessment. At
present each city and municipality
has its own assessor and no attempt
at an equalized assessment is being
made.
The matter of taxing improvements, also, they leave wtithout any
deljnite recomfmtendation, but sug
gest that it would do much to make
taxation more equitable if there
were a unil'orm system, of taxation of
improvements. "While land has not
increased In value since 1914, the replacement value of improvements has
greatly increased and in some cases
more than doubled. Consequently,
when these improvements, with their
increased earning power and increased ability to bear, taxation, are
wholly or partially exempt trom taxation, the result is to throw the ex
tra burden on land which 1s no better able to bear it thaniin 1914". This
is true particularly of growing urban
centreB.
Alt   the suggestions for lightening
the burden of taxation on land, however, will not ge sufficient t o   meet
the increased cost of education which

The New Immigration in Canada
' 1.—Sturdy Scotch family, meant arrivals In Canada on the C.P. liner "Montnalrn.'
3.—An excellent type of settler for the Canadian weat.
Immigration to Canada is recognized todajr as one ot the
country's greatest if not its greatest
economic asset. Authoritative statements on the subject have been
made to the effect that internal
problems confronting Canadian people today can, practically without exception, be solved by greater population. Writing in a recent issue of the
Dalhousie Review, Mr. E. L. Chicanot of Montreal, special publicity
representative in the Department of
Colonization and Development of the
Canadian Pacific Railway, strikes a
most optimistic note concerning recent immigration to Canada. His
article entitled "The New Immigration" is one of the most comprehensive that has been written on the
subject. Mr. Chicandt, who was in
close touch with the development of
Canadian population during the postwar period, states that the era of
■"Msilisn imminration opened un in
the spring of 1926 was essentially a
new immigration. In explanation
he goes] on to say:
"The years since the war have
served |to bring out a virtual revolution in nearly every phase of the
matter, as actually for the first time,
immigration became a public question
received the thought and attention it
deserves from the people of Canada,
and was realized to be of first national
moment. Immigration to Canada in
the years before the war might
roughly be compared to a broad
stream pouring into the Dominion and
spreading out uncontrolled in all
directions.
"The war ended, and a great
popular influx from Europe was expected ior Canada. It never took
place, largely because the trend was
discouraged at the outset. Canada—
unlike Australia—then regarded immigration as a possible fresh problem
instead of an economic remedy. The
Canadian Pacific Railway which,
in expectation of a heavy post-war
movement, had organized a colonization department, most keenly appreciated the change which had come
over conditions in general throughout
Ithe country  and the  necessity  of
taking a different view of immigration.   The days of surging flow had
 , probably never to return in
the same way, and in any case such
an haphazard inundation was hardly
desirable."
Mr. Chicanot then describes the
great immigration work being carried
out by scores of immigration societies
in Canada which came into existence
through the new interest of ths
Canadian people in immigration. As
the result of supervision through
these many societies the type of immigrants to Canadian shores was
greatly improved. "With the various
channels beginning to act", continues
Mr. Chicanot, "each pouring its
trickle of new life blood into Canada
the railway—equally solicitous as to
keeping these people in the Dominion
after arrival—directed attention to
the other end of the horn, and set
about turning the new popular interest In immigration to practical
account. People actuated not alone
by the national good, but also by a
pride in their own locality and a
desire to Bee it prosper and expand,
had merely to have the means pointed
out to them in order ithat their
[natural sympathy for the new comet
I might take practical form."
Understand Your

You are driving down the street

and apologize to the injured party,
but if you do that little thing and ho

your Insurance company will not
stand behind you for you have violated a term in your contract which
says you must accept no liability for
any accident. In apologizing you
admitted that you were in tho wrong.
This is- what I mean by understanding your insurance policy, and the

The strong suburban movement of the last
ten years is jecognizeri as a tendency that is
transforming   Canadian   cities.     With   this
movement we are now  beginning to observe
various subsidiary tendencies that are combining with the suburban spread, and tbat
may be in effect a considerable compensation
for forces in our national life that tend constantly to concentrate our population to city
centers.   The sweep of homeseekers toward
the roomier sections of outlying cities  is not
only building up tbe purely residential suburban home section.    It is,  around every  city
giving rise to a new type  of living, in which
country-minded city  workers are venturing
out into one acre or five acre tracts which  tbe
family may develop as commuter farmers—
"rubber-tired  farmers," the Californians dub
them.    At the same time a not dissimilar im-
pnlse for occasional   escape from city pressuje
is bringing about among the w*U to do a country mindcdness that is resulting in the growth
of large country estates.
Man has apparently becomo careless about
one of the most important items in his en
vironment—color. As soon as lie realizes fully
the inhibitive and repressive influence of drab,
uniteresting color surroundings, the vistas
about him will be immediately transformed-
Man has always conquered or changed conditions unfavorable to his best ■ development.
There is no ren son to believe that he will not
rise to the present situation and reinstate into
bis daily life the color whicb is so important
to his well-being.
The well-balanced diet provides within the
limits of the fuel, or calories, needed to main
tain the best body weight for age at d  height
Pro ein, right in kind and amount; iron, calci
um;  phosphorus; and  vitamins A, B aud C
The diet should  be either bulky or •'potentially" bulky.    Balance sbould  be extended
also to matters that affect taste. There must
be a variety of flavors. Bland, sweet, sour, and
savory foods mnst be used in right proportions, and either carefully blended or skilfully
contrasted. So, too, with textures. Hardness,
softness, starchiness, fattiness, crispness, and
succulence, are pleasing qualities, but they
must be balanced one witb another if the diet
as a whole is to be attractive.
Air-cooled engines have definitely challenged the position of tbe water cooled engine

given by Commander E. E. Wilson, U.S.N.,
at a meeting of the Society of Automotive
Engineers.
Artificial milk, which is asserted to possess
all the qualities of fresh cow's milk, is to be
manufactured in Denmark. The product is
said to ba not merely e substitute for milk as
the real butter fat is replaced by vegetable
fats and the addition of vitamine gives it the
character of fresh milk.
The watermelon is a native of Africa. It
was early taken to India, as seems indicated
by its having a Sanskrit name. It reached
China about the tenth century A. D. It has
no name in the ancient Greek and Latin languages and was probably not known to these
peoples much before the Christian era.
JfOne by one the railway is conquering tlie
deserts of the world, and  now news comes
that the French have compelted their plans for
thetremendous feat of bridging the Sahara.
The Sahara has already been conquered by the
camel and the motor car, but building a permanent railway line across it is quite a different matter.   Its surface varies so greatly in
character that the engineer is faced  with not
one but many problems.   The projected lint
is to go from tbe big Algerian port of Oran to
Ouagadougou, in the French Soudan, crossing
both Sahara and Niger, and  will take seven
years to build    Ouagadougou, the capital of
the   fertile   Upper   Volta region, has been
chosen for the terminus because it is a convenient center for the network of railways
with  which the Freneh intend to link their
Niger colonies.    As the crow flies, it is about
2000 miles from Oran; it lies in one of the
most thickly populated parts of Africa, and
may one day rival Timbuctoo in fame.   A
glance at a map shows how important the con
struction of the new railway will be to French
Africa, but it is not yet clear how the French
intend to set about the task.    Kitchener's famous railway across the Soudan, and even the
new Australian transcontinental railway, pale
into insignificance beside it.
"Hell-Roaring Canyon," the scene

Rockies as known to the guides and

has just changed it to a less romantic name—"Numa Creek." Thc resson for the change in name is that
there is another Hell Soaring Canyon in the Rockies which claims *
prior right to the name.

IT is doubtful lt the news of an
approaching circus, heralded by
dazzling and wonderful advance
posters has ever caused as much joy
and excitement, as the announcement
of the coming of the "Canadian Pacific School Train" into the hinterland of Northern Ontario.
There are more than fifty children
tn Just one sub-division of the Railway who have never been able to go
to school for the simple reason that
there was no school to go to; but
they have all heard of the joys of
"school dayB," and longed for the
day when they too might skip to
school -with a bundle of nice new
books under their arm.
A little furor of excitement -passed
over this district a few days ago
when the proclamation went forth
that tbe school train was coming in
the middle of September. "School
—jnst think of lt—and not tbe kind
of school tbat tbe envied city and
town kids have, but a school on
wheels—a school that suddenly appears one day and goes and comes
again, like a magic castle."
This unique experiment of bringing the school house into the unbeaten paths of this sparsely settled
country is being carried on by the
Provincial Government of Ontario
ln co-operation with the Canadian
Pacific Ralb, ay, with a view to providing educational facilities to the
children of railway men and resilient* in tbe remote stations along
the line in the Northern section of
the Province between Chapleau and
Sudbury. This territory was selected by the Department of Education
after making a thorough survey of
the education needs of the north, and
should the travelling school prove to
be a success It was intimated that
the plan probably would be extended to include other railway subdivisions.
The School car is so fascinating
that it would make anyone, no matter ho*w old, want to go to school
again. About one-half the car is
devoted to the school room, which
is fitted with desks for little boys
and girls and big ones too, a desk
for teacher, a blackboard, bookcases
with school books and good fiction, and even a real bell to summon
the scholars. Behind the schoolroom Is the bedroom of the teacher
and in the rear of this again comes
a kitchen so thoroughly equipped
with everything, from stove to icebox, as to bring envy into the-heart
of any housewife. The teacher's
name is Walter H. McNally.
It is anticipated that the car will
stop at about six communities during the month, making a brief visit
of from tbree to six days. Upon
leaving the teacher will give the
children enough homework to keep
tbem busy until the car returns
again In the cpurse ot a month.

Rev.    and ' Mrs.    Beatty returned
this evening from; Vancouver,  wbere
is sure to comte ln a province where
not only is the school population
growing rapidly but better education
is being demanded. Therefore some
other basis of taxation must be add
ed to that of real property. There
are many men and women in British
Columlbia wbo have had the advan
tage of a free education which now
enables them to earn a good salary,
and yet they may not be contributing
anything to pay for the education of
the rising generation because they
have no ileal property. There is
growing in public opinion a belief
that a graduated income tax in one
of the fairest ways of raising funds.
For thesie and other sound reasons
the cornhmlssioners recommend that
an income tax of not less tinan 1 per
cent be levied on all incomes for
school purposes. Such taxpayers
should bave a vote Cor school trustees and be eligible for that office.
This would broaden the intereset in
education, as well as increase tbe
funds for that purpose.
Finally,- let us consider the matter
of the government aid for teachers'
salaries. This is made on a flat
grant basis—$580 toward the salary
of each teacher employed, irrespec
tive of tbe total salary padd; and not
taking into consideration the un
equal e orts being made by taxation
ln different districts. The comlparl
sons quoted above otf South Vancou
ver and Delta on the one hand, and
of South Vancouver and Saanich on
the other, show that the grant has
little relation to the actual need.
The survey commissioners' recom
mjendaition for an equalization ofthe
government grant is well warkled out,
but can not be described at length
here. Briefly, .It aims at giving a
larger grant in proportion to the
greater need, and vice versa. Cer
tain districts whoso taxable assess
ment indicates that they have ample
wealth for support of all teachers
employed would receive nothing from
this fund. But a district wbich has
' a greater proportion of British Col
umbia children than British Colum
bia wealth should receive a grant ac
cordingly (since education is a pro
vinclal responsibility).
Thes*) are the main recommenda
tions made With regard to scbool
they are not proposing to devise a
perfect Plan of school taxation. No
such plan has ever been devised.
They are seeking an approximation
to justice. Their recommendations
in this realm certainly appeal to the
average citizen as being botb just
and practicable.
