From the point of view of the interest taken in! it by teachers aild pupils, it was not! a success, and it .was decided to es-' tabhsh the competition on a perman- i ent basis. On the advice of the chair- j man of the judging committee, Mr. Iv. H. Roberts, the educational coin-i mittee. in co-operation with the sup- erintendent of schools, drew up a set of regulations to govern the comjieti-l tion in future. These include a clause, I requiring every pupil in Grades VII to XII, inclusive, to take part in the competition, thus making it avnart of! the school curriculum. The subjects for the 1921 essays were announced in the schools early in February and j the essays will be written on April S. I At the November meeting, the i chapter instructed the educational committee to order three pictures to i Purple Springs and Burdett. Owing to.l the fact that tho pictures chosen were not available at the time, no furthe- action has been possible. JEAN S. JACKSON', Educational Secretary.
