If you 'think there is a necessity to build another new school, get out and vote on Monday. Another big school is necessary at once. Support the bylaw to build one. list. We shall keep for one day more. this offer open Seventy-five Years Hence. (Calgary There are still some persons in Southern Alberta who have an idea that Halioy's comet had something to do with the dry spell, and they are still hoping that they can keep go- ing until Mr. Halley comes round on the return journey so .that they can tell him just what 'they think of him. Remember? (Chicago Tribune.) You member of the Can't Get Away club, are you watering the rubber plant regularly, as you promised your wifie you would do when she went away to the country? NEW SCHOOL NEEDED. The study of the school attendance "at the city public schools during the last year or two -will. indicate in a measure the responsibility Testi upon the school ;board in providing ac- commodation, sfor the rapidly growing school .population. For many years tihere was but -little Increase. But it is different now. The. records show "that in August, 1904, the total enroll- ed at the public schools was 264. In January, 1905, it was 263. In April of the same year it rose to 355. but in September was only 340, and in (November 354. During the next term the 'highest enrollment was 3S2 in April. Tip to this 'time there had ten teachers employed. During the of 1906 the highest en-1 Tollment was 397 in. November, and twelve teachers -were employed. In 1907, the number began to increase more rapidly, reaching an enrollment of 572 in December, and. there "was a. staff of .fifteen teachers, ifour of. them at Westminster school, "which had two less than a year before. During 1908 .the enrollment saw another consid- erable increase, the n.umib'er reaching 6S8, and tie staff-at the end of the year was 19, five of -whom -were in North Lethbridge, -where a temporary school had been built. Last year, 1909, .saw .the school pop- ulation increase at a rate that taxed the ability of the board to provide ac- commodation. In September the en- rollment -was 862, and in November 934, and 24 teachers were on the staff, six north of the track, and. three in the high school t During the six months of the present year, the in- crease has kept up. In April 995 pu- pils were enrolled, and during the term no fewer 'than 1231 pupils were registered. .Including the high school staff and the supervisor, there are now thirty teachers on the payroll. This continued rapid increase has meant a lot of building. The twelve room Central school is full, as is also the two room kindergarten school across the street, -while both rooms of the temporary school on street are also Toeing used. The high school is in a building by itself. There is thus no provision for opening any more departments on the south side of the track. The large increase that is .bound to come with the opening of school will have to be accommodated by crowding the present rooms, all of which (have -enough pupils now. Across the track, Westminster school is full, and one -room at least of the temporary school on Bailey street will be called into use after holidays. There is thus at the present time urgent need of a school, more'particu- larly on 'the south side. There are at present, no rooms available, and, judging Irom the record of the past year and a half, the rooms at present occupied will be badly overcrowded by the time the school can be built These figures are sufficient to prove, if proof were necessary, that the' ratepayers should vote solid to pass the bylaw on Monday, to provide for the erection of a school in the Duff Addition, which, it must be admitted, is the place where the school should be built. There lis no use building small tem- porary schools, except in a case of emergency. Good, permanent schools should be built -whenever possible when they are needed. A good school lasts for generations, whereas a cheap one must soon be re-1 placed. Cheap schools are poor econ-! omy. Launer's First Failure Albertan.) Think of it. The Conservatives of Manitoba called upon Laurier for rain, and it didn't rain, and they are complaining that he isn't up to much at all. That is the only argument seem to be able to get against him or his policies. The building of a school this fall means the employment of a large num ber of men. This ig a good year to do public works of any kind.
