Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 6, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE TEN THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD SATURDAY, APRIL 6, IMS Random Notes of a Country Schoolmaster (Contributed) A shortage of almost a. thousand ] trail has been blazed for you. Mr. \ Farmer, do not let your family bo the : teachers in Alberta this year-which means that there are that number of schools in the rural and outlying districts where, the voice of the pedagogue is not heard in the laud: where the 'American-horn ehihi Is perhaps receiving less lenming than his father before him. where little foreigners may he growing up into big! foreigners for lack of some I'anadiauizing Influence. The remedy in general lies with the last 'to profit I think tile figures in most cases I how consolidation to be unite u lit-] tie cheaper per capita. But to any: true educator the lessened cost is the least item. The immense advantage lies in the infinitely superior training the children ''pceive. Kvery teacher' knows thut a child a* school learns j probably all counted more from his! mates than from his leacher. Other j conditions being equal then, the of-! fectiveness of the work done in any 1 department of education, they are no j grade will be constantly raised as the doubt taking measures to meet the j munber of pupils in the grade increas- tituation as far as it can be met. But as for our, specific remedy, yours and mine, the problem is only how to insure that our district is not one of the nine hundred and forty odd that must suffer. There are a few things that any 1 rural board can do if they will, and es up to say forty, .which is about the j largest number of pupils any teacher � should carry. ' Wtjen it is considered that in moet ; rural one-room schools, the number of pupils is from twelve to thirty-live,! with from six to ten grades, the won-! i der is not that the children learn so speaking from the teacher's viewpoint. | ntt!e, but that they really learn at these are some: Make the school house i al] Tne housewife who has nothing; attractive, equip it generously for j t0 d, at j,omo but cook and sweep and 1 educational work; have proper heat-, wasll aIul iron and clean aiu] L.are t-or iug and other appliances to lighten i tne little ones and tend the setting1 .the chores; give as a part of the sal- \ heng antl tae 0i,it.k3 and lambs and' ary a teacher's house furnished and | calves. au'd keep an eve on the farm: ,rent free, even a room in the school and Uie ,,tock ,vhile [wr i]US),aud is in town, should try a day in the i I school room in her own district. From phonics to trigonometry, from French; prose to forty-five combinations, pre- j sent day political history to the Ro-1 man Empire, the physic of electricity j ;is preferable to any outside boarding rp'lace; form a mother's club or parents' association to visit the school and take an interest in all its activities; pay salaries monthly and do not 4make it necessary for a teacher to ask Ottawa. April 5.- -The work of the Canadian Motor Machine Gun Corps during the last great German offensive is dealt with in the following article by Kohmd Hill, correspondent with the Canadian forces at the front whii'h was given out by Premier Borden today: War Correspondents Headquarter? in France.--In delaying the great German attack on the Somme. the Canada-lit motor machine gun corps dft her'-ie work and have gained special mention from the commander of tlje Grihsh army which fought the brunt of the wonderful retirement. Several times these armored cars found themselves fighting alongside tanks and more than once they followed the tracks of their heavier allies. Tanks were the battleships of the great fight: Cnaadian armored cars were the light cruisers. They remained hidden in broken buildings until section!1 of iltins had rushed down the main roads and they like juggernauts drove-down on the enemy, sweeping clear paths with their batteries of machine giin�. At the cross roads at Villice*-Carbonnel on the St. Quentin Road, they delayed the Hun advance five hours and gave the tiretl infantry time to dig sonre semblance of shelter.
