I called the Alliance executive together and suggested that they recall those forms in order to save a clash with the department, which would b'e in- jurious to both teachers and schools. This suggestion, however, was ignored. The Alliance officials have been very active in many forms of misre- presentation.

The truth is that the largest number of permits ever in use at any one time in the province since I became minister, was under three hundred and moreover, during the months of May and June last year only twenty-four (2-1) schools in tho entire province were not operating. I have remained silent thus far De- cause I desired to avoid anything that' would hamper us in the great work we are trying to do. It is evident that iny silence unfortunately came under the domihation of one or more of our segments, these help us locate the others we meet, and by the time we have read the poem through once, we have at least a dim Uea of the poet's conception.

Many refuse to give up the portion they have achieved, and eliag blindly and dogmatically to tbeir chimerical creation.
