Armidale Express and New England General Advertiser (Newspaper) - June 23, 1930, Armidale, New South Wales It b Jim Kate express the 3foutbpiece of the District monday june 23, 1930. Compulsory education. New South Wales a which boasts one of the finest educational systems in the world is naturally. Intensely interested in the determination of the British government to raise the school leaving age from 14 years to 16 years. To those who have not the time inclination or Opportunity to keep closely to touch with the United kingdom s political life it would seem that the government was actuated wholly and solely by a fervent desire to extend the facilities find privileges for the Sake of education itself that however is not so. Discussions on the measure when it Wab brought Forward in the House of commons prove conclusively that it is part and parcel of the government s scheme to relieve unemployment an acute problem in the British Isles to Day. The increased school age Means the withdrawal from the labour Market of 400,000 boys and girls annually and to attain this objective the government is prepared to find approximately �5,500,000�? and incidentally consider that it is getting out of an awkward position cheaply these facts Are mentioned in View of the suggestion that the school leaving . Raised similarly in this state. The suggestion of course is not org anal or the report of the minister of education for the year 1928 contains the following passage whilst an effective solution of the problem ji.e., decreased enrolments would be the Extension of the compulsory age to1, fifteen years the practical difficulties of such a step can Best be assessed by a Survey of the problems of stats department in keeping abreast of the insistent demand for proper housing equipment and staff for the children already enrolled. Obviously it would be futile to make it compulsory for children to attend school to an age exceeding fourteen years when proper provision in spite of recent heavy expenditure by the state has not yet been made for children of fourteen years and under together with those who voluntarily extend their attendance beyond fourteen that disposes of the originality of the suggestion of these who would have reforms at any old Cost and without considering where the Money is coming to meet the Bills. Theire is much More common sense in the minister s report which continues such voluntary attend Ance should be encouraged and. In the absence of legislation that would be embarrassing at this stage in our development the Only course open to the department is to make the super primary work attractive in order that the parents might be encouraged to allow their children to remain longer at school and Benefit by the valuable and specialist training offered. The More marked tendency for the children to remain. At school beyond 14 years of age is evidence that the appreciation of the parents for the value Oft the super primary education is growing stronger each it is interesting to note so that a surprisingly rapid increase in the state s population has taken place i n _ recent years. For. The years 1914 to 1927 there was a total increase in the population of . Of 29.6 per Cint. The population of England and Wales for the same period increased a Only 6.3 per cent. Obviously the difficulties of grappling with the problem Are infinitely harder in a state with such a rapid increase some idea of the Job confronting the department May be gauged by the know ledge that the enrolment for 1928 showed an increase of 10,446. In 1923 the effective enrolment was 304,287, and by 1928 it had jumped to 334,413, necessitating an increase in the teaching staff of 1535. During that period expenditure increased from �3,813,677 to �4,941,323, exclusive of technical education. Of the latter amount �1,004,241 was absorbed in buildings additions Sites and maintenance. It is evident therefore that any Abate ment of a progressive building policy would have created a state of affairs extremely difficult to remedy. The recent statement of the minister for education that he found himself �1,500,000 Short to meet pressing needs in buildings and equipment is ample evidence of the magnitude of the task of educating the children of the state. This is further emphasised in the knowledge that no minister of education has succeeded in securing a greater allocation of Public funds for the provision of decent accommodation than the present occupant the Hon. D. H. Drummond. While there is Little doubt concerning the desirability of an increase in the school leaving age we must get Down to tin tacks and make the financial arrange ments first of All. There is far greater statesmanship in tailing the people that at present the finances of the country will not stand the Strain than in promising a measure such As been introduced in England and scraping about to get the Money probably by increased taxation to pay maintenance a Lowance to parents for the loss of their children for an additional twelve Mont is As bread winners. No doubt or. Lang would not hesitate to premise such things but fortunately for new South Wales we Are ruled by men who have some political honesty in them. Trout hatchery. Rod fishermen s Enterprise. To be opened on saturday. The liberation of 300,000 Trout Fry in new England streams is to be carried out in september and october by the Armidale and District Rod fishermen s association.

Solomons studios Armisle Golf club. Course improvements. Satisfactory work proceeding. The Armidale Golf climb is in tent on making the course one of the Best in the country districts and with this end in View it has been putting into effect an Exten Sive policy of Green and Fairway improvement. The Green committee has been very Active and has engaged extra labor and the work to Date has been very satisfactory. The committee met on Friday night when there were present messes. C. R. Richardson president. Wright r husband v. T. England d. B. Cam-1 Eron w. C. R. Solomons h. A. Hyams Secretary and or. Harbison. In reply to c question from the i president the Secretary reported that there had been a Little response to the Call for overdue subscriptions but there were still Many outstanding. Consideration was deferred till next meeting. R the action of the convenor of the j greens committee or. W. C. R. Solo Mons in accepting the tender for the Supply and delivery of top dressing and Sand was endorsed. A letter from the new England District Colt association containing a report of a meeting of the association at Inverell on june 8, was received. The association had decided that All preliminary rounds of the . Sailors and soldiers cup should be played before the end of june and the final to be played off in Glen in nes on july 27. The Secretary reported that the Ere-1 Dot balance at Date was �260. Re a seipts for the month had totalled �56, and expenditure �46. Accounts to-1 tailing �26 were passed for pay ment and it was stated that in amount of �18/18/ was due for work j on the course which would leave the j club �214 in credit �60 was also outstanding in subscriptions. The greens committee reported satisfactory Progress in the work of enlarging the greens and top dressing. Nos. 3. 4, 6 and 12 were practically completed and it had been found that temporary improvements on the 11th would be unsatisfactory and the Only method of treating this Green j was to build it up and have it levelled j this work was being carried out Anda further Grant would be necessary to Complete the work. The committee suggested that the improvements to the 9th and 16th greens be deferred until the off season in order not to disorganised the season s Golf to any great extent. The suggested improve ments would doubtless put these greens out of play for some consider Able time. Various grasses had been sown in various portions of the. Course and were coming up Well. This should give some idea of the most suitable grass to use in the future. Much tree planting has yet to be done and gifts of Trees would be appreciated. The president i am averse to spending any More on the coarse unless it is of & permanent nature. Any body can see that the greens become corrugated by the water running Over them after Rains but if they were levelled they would be unaffected unless in very heavy Rains. We have seen that with our level greens. Nos 17, 6 and 3 Are sloping greens and will give trouble and i think they should be made level. Or. Bouter. Who de signed the course impressed upon me not to shift the position of tile greens and to make them All level when pos sible. This would make the maintenance very much easier. I agree that the greens committee has done Excel Lent work and the course has been greatly improved or. England supported. He consid j ered that the Only solution for Sand greens was to have them absolutely 1 level. He said the greens committee had done great work. Or. Solomons defending the policy of the Green s committee said the j main idea was to make the course playable and he considered that the course was now very much better. The Little Money that had been spent had been spent wisely. He thought that line course should be made play Able until it was possible to have per-1 a nent improvements effected. The president i agree that the Green s committee has done excellent work but i would suggest that any future work should be of a permanent nature. Or. Solomons there will be no More temporary work. The Oiler improvements suggested will be per manent. The action of the Green b committee i was confirmed and a further Grant of �25 was made to Complete the suggested work. A vote of thanks was carried to the Shire for the work carried out on the Road to the course. Bowls. A rinks Competition. Jewell wins final.
