Vour Kins and Country need you right nowt ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR The French resumed their offensive i on both sides of thft Somme yester-! day and made important gains. They i are experiencing heavy fighting In I the region of Peronne. On the British front heav}' fighting Is also taking place. The Germans have attempted by several counter-attacks to retake lost ground, but have signally [failed In most instances. On the Ver-ttun front several violent engagements f*re being fought, with honors about teTen. The Russians are attacking the I German lines on the east with re-[newed vigor, but the Germans claim to have repulsed most of their at-' tacks. Dispatches from Rumania Indicate lhat both political parties In that ,' country have united on a policy favorable to the allies, and the interven-'tlon of this Uttle country tti the -war ^'on the allied side becomes more likely than ever before. SOME EDUCATIONAL, � PROBLEMS OF THE DAY Two hundred teachers and educa-: tlonallstB In convention in Saskatoon last we�k dealt witli three problems that affect education Tery largely in Western Canada, and they are worth I serious consideration by the general public in this province. The meeting decided that: There should be more moral and civic Instruction in the schools. There should be reform that would insure the retention of teachers and \ permanency of their positions. I There should he a reduction in the i number of departmental examinations for entrance to and promotion in the ; aigh schools. Other highly Important matters were dealt with but 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 it ;fias become a standing, though mighty ;poor, ioke in'Western Canada that our tleachers are miserably paid. The l^iverage for lady teachers In this pro-i'l-lace does not exceed $800 per an-, lum, and we (believe, the average an-|iiual salary of male public school ;eachers will not beat the $1000 mark, ''or the young man or woman with |,imbitIon and vision such salaries are jy lot conducive to great-interest in t^eir hrofession, and lack of interest surely �esults in lack of energy in their work 'vlth consequent weakness in results. I'an any man or-woman not engaged l-n the profession: say -that such salar-�jea will make the teacher proud of profession?- The ex-teacher is not 'Out to ret?r' often to his teaching rperlence. But what profession should emand greater pride on the part of [those actively engaged in It than the caching profession? Those who oc-iupy themselves at it are all well tducated men and women who have pent long years of their lives tilting lemselves for the work. Why should-;'t they be proud to be teachers? It's jl fact they are not and the reason is pi the niggardly salaries we pay them. I And that is one of the leading rea-hmB for the lack of better teaching of I vies in the schools. The salary of kie ordinary public school teacher is elich that he or she is not in a position financially to take a great part # the affairs of the day. There is �fh chance to broaden out and take fi|uch part in the affairs of th� town, ^JHy or rural district when every ex-|mdlture must be watched. The small ^laried teacher doesn't teel much |te exerting himself or herself to be-^'jma an influence in the larger affairs tho community, with the re.sult .'at ho or she la not closely in touch II th the essentials of civics. The icher knowB civic govornmnnt in a iieral way, but it takes actual know- %lse of local conditions, of Provln-�"il. Dominion and Imperial conditions give the teacher that human Invest in atTalrs to be able to Impart bra to the growing child in such a jy that they will bo Bonielhlng more in u raerfl conglomeration of dry tin. Pay tho teacher so that he will able to lie just na important in the f|nraunlty as others of like intelll- Eencottnd ambition and there will bo a great change in our educallonta lite. As for the matter of examinations, tho Herald holds, as it has always held, that thoy are a sort of necessary evil. Some standard of proficiency must be adhered to in order to promote system in the course, but to make them the end instead of merely a means to an end is making them an ovU that is sapping the vitality of our school system. They are tho bane of the teacher's life. With the examination In view, with results produced at examinations so generally considered the mark of tjuallty of the teacher. It Is quite to be expected that tho teacher will teach for the examination, and many general matters in the curriculum are skimmed over because they don't weigh in tho final examinations. The examination stunts tho ambition of the average teacher, just as the too meagre salary does. Pay the teacher a good salary that will not make him blush when he thinks of It, trust him to have enough common ordinarj- Intelligence to know when a pupil he has been teaching for ten months Is ready for promotion, and our educational life will hroadea out; it will become really a part of our averyday affairs Instead of helng something detached to be thought at>out only when business matters are not weighing, and the result will be that we will bring up a generation of young men and young women that will outstrip those schooled in today's school that we will wonder at the change. And why is it that we are not farther advanced in our Ideals affecting our school affairs? Simply because we think of them otily when someone calls them to our attention. As part of our .everyday affairs the way our children are taught in school seems a very secondary matter. It's as good as the way we were taught, so we guess it will be alright. Lack of active public Interest-that's what Js the matter with the school system. Kitchener supplants Berlin In Ontario. Kitchener's army will alter the attitude of another Berlin in the near future. The Calgary Albertan very truly says of the late Major Stanley Jones: 'Brave, public spirited, noble hearted, generous Stanley Jones. No more gallant Canadian ever left our shores to die for his country." Alberta Is asked to contribute $800,-000 to the Patriotic Fund for the coming year. We can raise it easily, if all our people do their part generously. All the people must be reached, too. Beck's Weekly Tattler says: "As we Hake it, Justice Hilghes will be pleased to get the German vote, but would like it delivered at the backdoor, as the Roosevelt anti-Hun delegation are using the front." Japan Is rapidly becoming modernized. Ten of its legislators have been convicted for accepting bribes in connection with legislation in the Diet. Wonder if any of the old Manitoba regime has taken up residence In Japan. The number of prisoners In the county jail at Spokane at the end of Biz months of prohibition was given as 41, while the number last year at the same time was 105. Evidently prohibition la reducing crime in Wash-lington state. Kapsas says it will have to Import 45,000 laborers to harvest this year's crop. If there is such a serious shortage of harvest help in the United States the outlook is none too good in Canada. The proper authorities should get busy on this problem right away. There is no time to waste. The demand that the sentence of death upon Sir Roger Casement should not he carried out appears unreasonable. He was one of the instigators of the rebellion and should he punished just as the other leaders were punished. Why should Casement be exempted? "You may say that I have spoken on this war only in regard to civilization, which Ib do doubt great, but what will it be for Canada; cannot Canada stand aside? No, it cannot. I will go further; this war interests not only the people fighting, but also the neutral nations. I except none. Germany wants universal domination. If Germany triumphs, we would immediately be under German rule."- Sir Wilfrid Laurier. A B. C. newspaper finds in the present moisture just a repetition of history, which shows that the beginning of each century for hundreds of years past has been visited with long periods of rain. On the authority of a weather prophet, it is predicted that we are just starting out upon an era of forty years of wet weather.
