Gvo. P. Siuith threw a bomb into camp the other day when he declared, after ibo results of the de- partmental examinations were made kiowu, that (ha results "were the most unsatisfactory which have been kuown ta Alberta." We cannot imagine Mr. Smith, iiy- iu? this unless he had every reason to believe it was the truth. In fact, on the surface it would appear to re- tied upon (he educational cysteiu of the province, and that is the last thing the minister would care to do.

Middleton at Jlacleod Calls For Justice, The following is Ilia address dellver- unless'he felt things were get- ed at the funeral service of Corporal ting into a rut and there needed lo be a shaking-up. The litter, ws believe, was Mr. Smith's intention, but he wasn't aim- ing at the schools alone. He had something to say to parents which parents should be the first to take to heart without resentment: "From all over the' continent and beyond, we are informed, persistent reports come in that it Is impossible to get students to settle earnestly upon their work. Parental discipline has almost become a All manner of disturbances are permitted to enter Into the lives of children and the results" being felt more strongly every day in classroom. Tbe widespread belief prevails that strict discipline, hard work, self- control, and obedience are no longer the basis of real character and suc- cessful citizenship. We have to return to some of our old-fashioned ideas." There is much in what the miflistev o( education'says.
