In a town where of necessity many pupils cannot think of going on to a'university, a measure of tecliui- cal education, would surely commend itself to not a few. The Knight. Ac- ademy is rendering splendid service along this line. Our reference Is to the in our public schools. The Royal Commission on technical training and technical education, af- ter visiting various European coun- tries, is now engaged in a survey of conditions in Great Britain. The chairman. Dr. James AV. Robertson, claims they have learned us much of great value in England as in any other country visited. Appended are some of the .ideas or conclusions which the chairman has adopted. We may expect io, hea-r more about-the application of them to our schools in near future. Raymond is nev- er slow to adopt progressive mefis- iires for development. We believe in cultivating the head, tlio heart, and the hand. We want the best oppor- tunities for the children. That is the most important thing: that, we feel, is the index, ami measure of every nation's progress, and achievement. Xot skyscrapers ,not public parks, I not opportunity for the j children. t Dr. Itobertson, in his report, says; "And we believe tha-i in industrial and technical education lie the- vast- est possibilities for the building up of nations. Work with tools and mat- erials should, I am convinced, take up a very considerable part in the school- rniiniiig ot every boy, whether he. be destined for a mechanic's career or not. No, not a lesson in woodwork or something of that sort once a week far more important thing than that, to turn oirt embryonic craftsmen is not ilia aim. "You cannot doze when you are working with a .chisel. There is noth- ing like work with tools to make a boy alert, -to teach him to think in ad- vance; and "the boy will carry the alertness so gained into his other studies. have a general gain in efficiency. v "I too, jj-haL hajid-labof for the.jChildren conserve the love of hand-labor among" the people, and will tend to slay the drift into such professions as clerking. "There is great need for some means whereby a lad's particular bent or talen1.' may be determined, and in Switzerland we found trace of a move- ment in this direction. To the school was attached a department where certain constructive work in mater- ials were carried on, and lads intend- ed for a technical career were passed into this department, and their work carefully watched, so that an idea might be gained for what particular sort of work they were best fitted. "One thing that particularly struck me in Switzerland was the apprentice- ship school. In one case there were -50 students, who were actually ap- jprentlced, working the regulation hours, under the supervision of ex- perts, and being paid small wages. The work was sold. At first private manufacturers raised sonic objection, but they soon realized that what little they lost in competition was many times regained -through the excep- tional skill of thn young people when their apprenticeship was over. The manufacturers-were most keen to get Uiera. The system was applied to cavpentering and engineering, and in at least one case: Raymond's Budget KNIGHT ACADEMY NOTES "Snow. the beautiful little opera, was presented to a packed honfie on Wednesday night last. The rendi- tion was excellent and the parts in the main wore well sustained. On Thursday afternoon a matinee was given for the children, beginning at 4 o'clock.

Apostle George F. lilchards and Charles H. Hart, of Salt Lake City visited the Academy on Monday last in company with president Allen.
