Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 23, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY, AUnUST 23, 191S TUB LirmBBTDfiB nnmx fircnwco PAGE THREE THAT SON-IN-LAW OF PA'S By Wellington ^ REFORM ^ffr vouN^^ fVTHiniNWEHVJRON-Hlh OF HIS gOVHOOP. r* HhD 01^ how H6 SETHIS SUCH ASTO C/^USE HtS MIND moP^wEWL C3N IT? ASKEO CUANK? SUCCESS OF SCHOOL FAIR Tlio school talr once umlortakon bo-comos an evout eiigorly looked forward to, by the competing " hcUooIs. Tills was abundantly demonstrated at the one hold recently at Mirror under the auspices of tho Mirror U.F.W. Very Buccessful ones had been held the j)revlous two years at tho adjoining village and both children and adults were anxious to see which school would scoro the highest and secure Ihc shield. Besides, It was an opportunity for school teams and individuals to pit their skill aalnst each other, and for adults watching them to live over again in these same sports their own youthful endeavors. Three village schools representing in all eight rooms, and six one-roomed rural schools entered the competition. Of these village schools two are con-solldatecj. About four hundred people were present, some of whom came by train, many in motors from away across country, while others less fortunate, but haviuB the consolation of being in tlio majority, brought their families In wagons and democrats. The Mirror school grounds were on fete for the occasion. The U. F.W. and Hed (!ross bootlis were gay with tlie Hags bf the allies, while the school building served a.s an exhibition hall. The program of the day began with a singing contest. Each school competing was required to sing in chorus "Tlio Maple Leaf" and points were Riven for senior, intermediate and junior solo.s. Some of those were very pleasing indeed and real talent was displayed. One particularly pretty girl in the Intermediate class sang a verse of an old-fashioned song, and the beauty of her voice and rendering Ulong with her per.'ional bcayly caused a ripple of admiration iind many lire-dictions of a future. The Exhibits. The o.vhibits included sewing, basketry, raffia work, mat weaving, paiier cut work, cardboard work, pen and ink Hivotching, pencil sketching, water color drawings, clay raodolllng, map drawing, writing, natui-e work, embroidery, tatting, knitting, composition and cooking. In all the departments tho work showed a decided advantage over that of last year. Tho sowing included aprons, underwear, doll outliis, holders an ^ ^ > ^ if J> > � REPLIES annual school fair, which will always remain in memory the red Idler day of llU! year? LKONA H. HAKLIKTT.

Gears and grates for all popular makes ol engines, CKischel Leiaee .of the Lethbridge Iron Work*. drawing "pictures" on our slates; arid surely a promise for a more artistic generation. As a by-product of such training we cannot but believe that in the iiomos of those boys and girls when they become the home-makers, tho lurid machiuery calendars and all other such offences against good taste will bo material for kindling the kitchen fire, or put up whore it can be viewed by one eye at a time, by the useful old hen, or some, other creature which It will not deprave. And wo have reason to hope that green walls and blue ceilings and all such-like combinations have disappeared forever. The display of baskets was very interesting. They varied in form from sandwich trays to sewing baskets, with some pretty forms and tlesigns reminding one of the early Grecian vases in between. It made me think of tho poverty of one's own school days when "reading and writ-int 'rithmetic, taught to the tune of a hickory stick" was considered the only proper enjoyment for young minds and flngors. Good old days' weren't they? Thank God they will never return. Some of the woodwork was really cleverly done. Only jack knives wero used and in some cases cigar boxes furnished the material but sand paper and varnish stain worked wonders. One school had a display of book racks made by the boys, and I am certain (hat their fathers given the same tools could not have done so line a job. One school ot nine pupils bad some good specimens of clay niodellinK- real clay, not plasticine. This, school came second in its insect and flower collections, dniJ its art work was very pleasing. When it camo to spoi^f the rural school was at a disadvantage. Two basket ball toani."! and one baseball team wero entered. In both bsaket and basohall these teams wore no match for the village school owing, to the unevoness of size and ago of those making up the teams. Mirror has a crack baseball team, a standing monu mcnt to tho energy and enthusiasm of one of its principals, who has answ^er-ed his country's call. Alix has an Intermediate 'Und senior basket ball team, both of which are good. How-over to show the Interest taken in the game one of the rural schools, without a teacher, was entered by the pupils themselves so that they might compete on the sports. Considering their handicap, this school had a very good basketball team, and had played for two years with groat glory to themselves. They were not to bo cheated out ot the, tun because school was not In session, so they entered-and played too. The day was not half long enough for tho progrum, and as no Joshua was present, the greater part of tho sports had to bo omitted, much to our regret. An admission fee ot 25 cents was charged to all adults anil the money along with that from tho U.F.W. booth was divided among tho competing schools according to tho points made by each. Tho trophy which wa.i a beautiful shield was donated by the AUx U.F.W. and U.P.A. and won by a one-roomed school. This school, known as nipley, has scored the lilghest for two years, and therefore has won the trophy tor tho second tlino. Besides carrying off many ot tho firsts in tho different sections it was awarded first prize for the exhibit as a whole, taking intt) account arrangement, quality of work done, and the variety ot oxhib-its. 29 pupils answer tho roll call, ten qt whom are in the C year old draft and entered, this spring. Is ho day of the ono-room school gone? Not at all. Every single ratepayer, male and female, in the Ripley district would vote against consollda-ton.' Why should they not? While teachers ot tho calibre it has been blessed with can be secured it has nothing left to desire under the proS' ent curriculum. Whllo It may be In frequent, in this ono case, at least, the consolidated school must lake oft its hat to the ono-roomod rural school, with its attractive ^Interior, Us appliances for hot lunches. Its good library, and its pretty flower and voge-tablo garden. As to school fairs themselves, tho benefit is incalculable. Apathetic parents are aroused to keen interest, a icommurlty spirit Is developed by this moans as by iia other, and the school becomes tho centre ot tho community life. Tho Individuality, ot the pupil is merged Into that ot the school, and this is tho first lesson in co-oporatlon. No money Is given to the Individual^ pupil. The school 'is awarded w|uit It has earned, and the money Is u^od by tho teacher for sport and other uocos-sary supplies. AVho would deny tho ethical value ot such appointment? Above all, who would deprive tho all Itoo bare yoijng UVes.the Joy oC the FFE ? > ken to the hospital upon his arrival at Vancouver and an operation was performed yesterday from which he did not recover, dying at five o'clock in tho afternoon. Jlr. Barclay was well known all throughout tho Pass, and was-a most thorough and active business man, connected with tho A. Macdonald interests. He came to Fernie' about 1305 and was a resident ot tho town, taking an, active interest in civic affairs. He was about 12 years of ago and' leaves a wife and two children who livo in Vancouver. Tho Chautauqua entertainment aggregation finished, their week of excellent ontortainnient here last night to a full houso who wero entertained by the Balmer Kallir Hoys in a manner most enjoyable to all. Throughout, these entertainers have given an improved programme over that wMth which they became'acquainted with the town last year, excellent as that first appearance was in every way. Tl'ero was no difTiculty in securing a renewal of the guarantee for next year, and the reputation they have made for themselves insures a still bettor patronage than they wero .favored with this year despite tho unfavorable weather which prevailed during a part of the time. > HINDENBURG'S FRANK .;.
