The United States Is going to have decorations tor its brave soldiers, too. A bill has been passed auUiorlzing "the President to present. In the name of the Congress, a Medal of Honor only to each person who, while an..�ttleer or enlisted man of the army,, shall hereafter In action. Involving actual conflict with an enemy distinguish himselt'consplcuou^ly by gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond) the call of duty." The bill provides also for another medal--a Distinguished Service Medal fbr^ "exceptionally meritorious service to the government in a duty of great rebponslbillty or by extraordinary heroism in the line of his (the candi date's) profession." This medal Is to be awarded, not by congress, but by the commander-in-chief, the president, on the proper commanding officer's recommendations. For'a secbnd act of distlnctton the president may award a suitable bar In lieu of another medal, and each bar shall entitle the owner to additional pay of $2 a month. Through a retroactive clause, some old soldiers whose names were long alnca sent in for the Medal of nohax but who did not receive it may Vet be cheered by obtaining the new medal. �a;^ SIDES OF CASE / ii^pme crgdnizatlons in -Winnipeg ^naebed a mi^vement to impeach a l^ltoba Qigh Court judgis'on ac-eou^ of a light sentence hV hnposed ^Vhat was considered a very'serious ' to endorse the' proposal. l^J^^onli^vcb^riude th^'i^^ proof once agailn tiia't'lt is well to 'iffit'both, sides of an argument, before . jreachiqg a decision.

They are "practically all rural schools. It would be foolish to argue that the Military Service Act is to blame because most of onr rural schools employ lady teachers. Undoubtedly the great^carcity is due to the war, aa women find many attractive positions to fill in our cities. �vea in peace times there was a shortage It would seem we are creating more schools than there are teachers available to fill them. . It Is a serious prob-1dm. Education, must be'provided In the rural sections-, U not, rural life will become that much leas attractive. The consolidated school Is combining school districts and sparing a few teachers hero and there but the con Eolldated cannot solve the problem, at this time at any rate. Unless mora y^ung vaen and women take up. peda-gogy as a profession what are we ^oing to do to provide educatioii For thoii-sand's of boys and girls? One thing is certain .batter salaries will have to be paid in rural districts if the teaching proteasion is to be made attractive enough to retain the services of young men and women who have qualified themselves!to teach. To meet the present emergency Is It not possible for some of our people, who-are qualified teachers, but not now engaged in some other occupation, to help-^out and take up teaching again to help meet the genuine emergency that exists. We know ot one married lady, reputed to have been in her day^s of single blessedness one of .the "^est teachers In t.he country, who'has taken a tchool again be-cauaa aha believes in doing so, she U enabled to^'jierve her country at this critical;pe|'|od in its history,; She was not compelled to do so: patriotism and tbo n^eds ,of the children without edu-oation^l'facilitle's prompted her to un-dartakf-thjbi.-worlt.
