ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR The French resumed their offensive on both sides of the" Somme yester day and made important gains. The> i are experiencing heavy fighting in the region of Peronne. On the Brt 'i tish front hcary fighting is also tak fing place. The Germans have at j tempted by several counter-attacks to retake lost ground, but have slgnall) (failed In most instances. On the Ver jflun front several violent engagements Hire being fought, with honors aboui haven. The Russians are attacking the (German lines on the east with re- jnewed vigor, but the Germans claim to have repulsed most of thsir 1 tacks. Dispatches from Rumania indicato that both political parties in that 'country have united on a policy favor- able to the allies, and the interven- 'tlon of this little country in the war 'on the allied side becomes more like- ly than ever before. SOME EDUCATIONAL: PROBLEMS OF THE DAY Two hundred .teachers and educa- tionalists in convention in Saskatoon last week dealt -with three problems that affect education very largely in Western Canada, and they are worth serious consideration by the general public in this province. The meeting decided that: There should be more moral and in the schools. There should be reform that would insure the retention of teachers and vpermanency of their positions. There should be a reduction in the of departmental examinations for entrance to and promotion in the i aigh schools. Other highly important matters were dealt with hut these stand out ahead of all. the rest and are of much general public interest. The first two questions are closely linked together, though they may not [appear to be .at first sight. But itj eenco and ambition and there will bo u groat clmngo la our educational life. As for tho matter of examinations, tho Herald holds, as it has it 1 ways hold, thnt they are a gort of necessary ovll. Some standard of proficiency must be adhered to in ordor ,to pro- mote system in the course, but to make them the end instead of merely a means to an end is making them an ovll that is sapping the vitality of our school system. They are tho bntie of the teacher's life. With the (nation In view, with results produced at examinations BO generally consider- ed the mark ot quality of the teacher, it is quite to be expected that tho teacher will teach for the examina- tion, and many general matters in the curriculum are skimmed over because they don't weigh in the final esatu- nations. The examination stunts the ambition of the average teacher, just as the too meagre salary does. Pay the teacher good salary that ,vJU not make him blush when he ;hinks of it, trust him to have enough common ordinary intelligence io know hen a pupil he has been teaching or ten months Is ready for promotion, and our lite will broaden out; 'it will become really a part of mr sreryday affairs instead of being lomething detached to ba thought about only when business matters are ot -weighing, and the result -will be that we will bring up a generation of men and young women that will ut strip those schooled iu today's chool that we will wonder at the bange. And why is it that we are not far- ther advanced in our ideals affecting ur school affairs? Simply because we lilnk of 'them only when someone alls them to our attention. As part f our .everyday affairs the way our AICKED UP IN SSINGLUZl FOR THE. BUSY MAN hildreu are taught in school seems very secondary matter. It's as good the .way we were taught, so we ueas it will be alright Lack of ctlve public what js matter with the school system. Kitchener supplants Berlin in On- rio.

"Why should- t thev be proud to be teachers It's fact they are not and the reason is the niggardly salaries we pay them. And that is one of the leading rea- ms for the lack of better teaching of vies in the schools. The salary of Japan is rapidly becoming modero- ed. Ten of its legislators have been nvicted lor accepting bribes in con- nection with legislation in the Diet. Wonder if any of the old Manitoba regime has taken up residence in Japan.
