Chairman's Address R. P. Wallace, the chairman of this year's Board, in his opening remarks, said, in port: "In reviewing tht> work which has been accomplished in matters of education In this city during the past few years, I think it will undoubtedly be c.cnceded that great progress and advancement has been -made. Cities in Western Canada all find very, .great difficulty in keeping apace educationally, and providing adequately tor the needs of a rapidly growing population. In these matters I believe that the School Board of Lsthbridge have not only kept abreast, of the times, but in advance of the times. There is probably-not a school building in the city today which Is being used for educational purposes that was constructed at the ' time that our ex-chairman, Dr, Gal* - �:' braitli, first became a member of the Board, unless it be the present High v School. The year 1012, I think, irl\ many respects, was the banner year^ ; in this city, so far as the advance in educational affairs is concerned. 7 Many New Schools ' r During thac time there was con-s structed the Manual.
