The sche- dule, as published, was adopted pro- visionally at the meeting of the trus- tees on Tuesday night, the final de- cision being held over so as to allow the teachers through their organiza- tion to have the opportunity of con- sidering it and to make any sugges- tions which tho Board would be will- ing to consider if feasible. The meeting of Alliance wns held in the afternoon of Wednesday, and there appeared to have been some, dissatisfaction ov.er the provisions as to merits of teachers as they apply to the salary raises. The Board was asked to allow the Alliance a week or so to go into tho question.. In the fact that the merit question, was fully discussed on the platform during the election, the trustees con- sidered that the teachers should by now have made up their minds as to dealing with it, and with this view were of the opinion that the request for holding over the adoption of tae scheduls was unreasonable. The schedule was, accordingly, adopted, and will go into force, with the ei- ception of a minor alteration In the clause as it referred to substitute teachers Who wero not qualified. The remuneration in this case was made to bo per day instead of as originally agreed on. The Board resolved that all school entertainments held in any school building shall terminate not later than 11 p.m., except on very special occa- sions, after leave had been obtained from the Superintendent. In tU8 absence of Chairman Hogg, who is leaving for Ottawa, Trustee Terrill was appointed acting Chair- man during his absence. There were 176 births in the city of Calgary last month and tlie mnjor- i ity were male children. Greet the dawn with a cheer.
