A-i nreEcnl, we neither the Calgary nor he CamrosB school is filled to capac- ty, miuors reach hat the government conlemplates erecting another school in tte near uture. DecenlraliLalloD ol mch nLlons Is a-policy that to fce gaining favor. Agricultur.il schools, are being well scattered province. One reason lor his may be the diversity in content or methods of study for different, local- ities. A more potent reason, is the enliehtcnment and jnaplra- tloii these InslJtulions dlCiise amoog peoDte. ihe Province of where not man- years ago they had one" nor- mal at Toronto, they now have normal schools to tho number ol leren. Ia Quebec they have fourieeo. CertaSn of the Stales, reputed to he irogresMve in'educational maUers, at- !ord similar Jn Ka.naa3 they iave three normal schools; in NortLi Dakota, four; In Minnesota, six; in II- Inols, six; in JH Pennsylvania, and in cons which claims dlsllnc-llcri for Is rural and agricultural edncation, i they hare'no less than thirty. From I these figures It Is a (air infers ace that none of the schools have a ranch larger or student body ttrui Ihose of our own province, cvoti It VQ Lad-tbreo schools. For ihe present year, tho combined leaching staff uf V and Crunrose schools tmmber.3 eighteen; .the entire slii'lcnt 206. ThJa means nine leaehers-for 143 stud- eals, the ratio being one leaclier forf 1C.4 students. In this past] year, -with seven schools, they have! had 79 teachres for 11S2 the j ratio being one teacher for 12.1 stud-] ents. In Ontario, moreover, the aver-j nge D timber ol students for each ot I tho scien schools has been 155, as ag- ainst an average enrolment In onr two schools of US; and their average nnm-1 her of teachers for each school hasj heen 11.3- aa against our average of' nine. From Ihla comparison it Is oh-] vioua that In'Ontario at least the de- centralizing has been carried on from' motives olher than economy. In all! the placej menilonod, we venture ihcj opinion that the province or stale has a larger enrolment of students In normal schools, a better supply of teachers for Us primary and D more useful class'of dtlzena leaching In Its rnral communities than It would hard TfJth only One or ITVQ normal schools located In large centres. Our tor a school, no doubt, mnst he considered by tho gorernment i In the light of rival claims. In this connection, might we emphasize some geographical lac.Li. The settled Ion of our province extends about 400 miles north and Eouin, from Ihg Amer- ican border to Athabasca. In tho north, within forty-fiTe miles of Ed- monton, wo hare a normal school at i Camroac. 150 mllea further south, we. haro the other ecliool at Calgary.
