Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 2, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta \ OJLUME VI. TWELVE PAGES Lethbridpfe, Alberta. Friday. May 2, 1913 PRICE-FIVE CENTS Number 120 Department Hoping that Consolidated Schools V/ill Multiply and Thus Help Some Edmonton, Alta., May 2.-Tho lure of matrimony and the glitter of gold to bo picked up in otlict mure remun-^rativc occunations Is causing a constant drain upon tho vanUs of the teaching profession in Alberta which amounta' to annually about litiojn per cent of the total number of teachers employed. In addit on new schools are opened at the rate of almost one per day, which means thdt besides the littcen per cent Which has to bo niadie up, additions to the school staffs of the province amounting to an increase of twcniy per cent of the total must be supplied. At the lowest estimate Alberta requires at least 600 new teachers annually in addition to thosi trained in Alberta. To staff schools already existing 3r)00 teachers arc regularly employed winter and summer, while in some districts the schools are open during July. To meet the constantly fsrowing demand for teachers the ecSucation department is extending the normal schools of the- province, and providing special short courses to fit teachers from otlier provinces and also from Great Britain and America to teach in the Alberta schools. But last year Alberta trained teachers amounted to scarcely thirty per cent, of the new teachers to whom teachers' certificates were grantrd. One of the ways in which the difficulty may be mot is by the consolidated schools which are heing established under the provisions of tho schools act amendments passed at the last session of the legislature and by which small school districts may '^e merged, thus allowing of larger schools and graded classed the provincial government making grants to tlie school districts towards the cost of conveying tho children to ;;tho central school.. A great deal of'^'in'teres't. IS bc'ng shmvh �in the act q,ud . requests arc being made to tho department to visit school districts and explain the meth-' od of procedure. It is expected that by July a considerable number of consolidated school districts will have to be formed. ABOLISH PLURAL VOTING : > ? ? ? : ? � ? ? ? > ? : o ? ? ? ? ? ?

THE HOME HE-UNION S DnD OLAR WILL LIKELY BE ENOUGH' GUAR-ANTORS TO OBTAIN CREDIT OF $10,000 The committee of seven, appointed last night to solicit for guarantors ot the Home Reunion fund met in the Board of Trade rooms this morning at 10.30 o'clock. A list ot names" ot business men who would probably act as guarantors, was submitted, and the general opinion is that 100 instead of 50 will be secured without any difficulty, 20 having- already signed up without solicitation. This will raise the credit at tho-bank to $10,000 instead of $5000, and immediate action will be taken, atter the guarantee is signed up. It is the intention of those interested to form a strong organization so that there will bo no hitch in immediate operations. A meeting is called for Monday night at the board rooms, and all guarantors arc requested to attend, jis it is expected that trustees and ofTicers will be elected, a board of examiners appointed, and a good live committee formed. Forms for use of applicants will be sent out as soon as they are completed. Coleman, 'May. 2.-Charles O'Brien, e.x-M.P.P., is in the Pass country looking for evidence on which to base a pro-tost.
