"We arc hitched to this new country like un- broken coils to a wagon. We were very wild we went too fast farmed lour sections whore we should have farmed one we bought ten lots where two was sufficient; we built lour stories when we only needed two. But the Great Master put the brake on ami held up in just as the. horse- breaker curbs the young colts, the brake was put on and the full load thrown against our shoulders and to day ivc are in the hour of trial. VVr havc learned the lesson the colt learns we have learned that to pro- gress we must pull together. U chare learned and 'must further realize the importance of all pulling together, for our city, for our district, for our province for our Dominion, aye, and tor our Empire in this great hour of speaker declared that the great- est asset that had was the great agricultural interests which surround the town. If the agricultural inhabi- tants were prosperous so the inhabi- tants of the city would he prosper- ous. Mr. Dunham then mentioned briefly the different matters which the Lethbridgc board of trade had in the past two years, worked on in the interests of tiic farmers of Southern -Uhcrta He expressed bis belief that the iarmers would reciprocate by sup- porting the city in its campaign for a normal school. Mr. Dunham's resolution was as follows Whereas this meeting is satisf.ed that zreat benefits have resulted from agricultural schools at the places where these have been established in this province, Resolved, that this meeting respect- fully requests the Alberta government to establish an agricultural school at some suitable place in this part of southern Alberta. The Normal School 11. A. McKillop, chairman of the Lt'lhhriilgc public school hoard, made the resolution asking the provincial government to establish a normal school in this city. His resolution was as follows Whereas there are at present 523 teachers employed in the district cov- Iered by two and one-half inspector- ates contiguous to the city of Leth- bridge, indicating that a continuous accession of' teachers will be required to maintain and increase the teaching staffs of the schools in that district, and, Whereas pupils desirous of entering the teaching profession have now to take their training at places outsidi the district. Resolved, that this meeting sprclfmly requests the Alberta gov- ernment to establish a normal schoo at Speaking on the resolution Mr. Mc- Killop went to the needs of the nor- mal school in the south, quoting fig- ures which showed Lethbddge's real ilaims. In the inspectorates of Mae- leod'and the western half of the Me- dicine Hat inspectorate, there arc, now 522 teachers and it is estimatei that inside of three years there wit be required 700 more teachers. -A' present, said Mr. McKillop, the pup iis who intend to become teachers must go out of their district and spend, a lot of money out oi theii own communities in order to receive the normal education. The present commodation of the schools oi Cal- gary and Camrose, where 280 teach- ers'were trained was even now suffi- cient and when the present 4-months term is lengthened to 8 months as will be done shortly, there will be a greater crowding than ever. It is certain, he said, that the accommo- dation will have to be increased it was up to the government to help out the south .by solving this prob- lem. Speaking ot the policy oi the gov- ernment, Mr. McKillop said that it hsd been formerly the policy to cen- tralize normal and agricultural edu- cation around a university. This had, however, been found to be a mistake in Ontario and in the eastern United States. The idea being adopted now is to decentralize. This will, he said, he the policy 'of the Alberta govern- ment, which is never behind the times. Therefore the next normal 'school should logically he in the sou- thern portion of the province, and Lethbridgc is the logical location for it. F. S. Lcirmgwell, M.P.P. .tor War- ner, seconded the motion. Mr. Lef- fingwell complimented the farmers of ,the Lethbridge district as being the best and most enterprising farmers to be found anywhere. He made a proud reference to the development, of education in Warner where a 12 by WHEN USING WILSON'S N FLY PADS RCAO DIRECTIONS CABfrUI.IV AND [QLinW THEM BASEBALLS Sale Pries 25c 35c 50e 75c 95c Sale Price 10c 25e 55c 75c Baseball Gloves and Sale Price 6Qe 75c SI. 50 S2.25 53.00 ith guarantees full measure of materials and workmanship.
