Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 15, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY; OCTOBER is. 1015. THE LEiTHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE FIVE NEW FALL SHOES MADE IN CANADA to FOK MEN: The ".Just liight Shoe" for men. This well known shoe has recognized quality splendid value for the money FOB WOMEN: JS. T. Bell's Shoes for women, a neat stylish com- fortable shoe absolutely the best, ladies' shoe ire. In the past, we have been accustom- ed'to teach the Norman Conquest, ami '.he Discovery of America as the two mtstandiug events in our history: but t is impossible to doubt that the great in which we are now engag- ed will have as important for ta and for 'our descendants. What he future may have in store we can- not say, -but heavy burdens, vast re- ponsibilities, great possibilities for good or for evil, will be ours. And it eems to me that, just in so'far as realize and endeavor to face our uty in this in so far shall fe be able to measure up to .the stan- ard of the great demands which the uture will certainly make upon UB. If the teachers here present accept hese arguments, then, surely it is up to .us" to see to it that In our Al- ertft schools every child shall know mt our cause is just, that we n the words of Mr. to ulfll a solemn international obliga- history of the present day IB written In the newspapers, and OJIQ need not hesitate to say that the pupil who has had careful training In h la to 17 will read the newspapers with far more discrimination, ant! with loss likeli- hood response to appeals to pre- judice than the boy or girl without that training. The ability to make comparisons, and to draw con trusts Is the most use- ful weapon of the history teacher. To be effective, history teaching must be general in scope before being exact in detaall, and we should teach our his- tory, Canadian and British, by means of comparisons anil contrasts, as a re- sult of which the various stages iu the nation's progress will he treat-id as a series of closely connected pic- tures. No lesson must be isolated, no' period, no event must he left suspend-1 od in mid-air. The teacher must look forward and. backward, see what pre- ceded, and what succeeded, and then consider the event with which lie is dealing In tbe light ol" tbe resources. shall find children ning to appreciate lection of this population against un- scrupulous adventurers. Details of the vast civilizing work undertaken by llritish Empire in India, in lOgypt, In East and West Africa, and in many other parts of the be out of place at this stage, but we capable of begin- the difliculty of problem presented in the white rulers of a country inhabited by a large majority of partially civilized natives. And if we can do this wt shall bf preparing the way for a sant- solution of what must be one of the great ijucstionr, which we shall have lo meet in the future, that of the position within the Empire of iliesn same colored races. point which may be made here is that in addition to the control uf uur, own relatively small native pop: on govern the Commonwealth of Australia now controls and administers certain col- onies to the north of that continent, and that the Union of South Africa the limitation, and the aspirations of' wiil "''minister territory which obligation which, entered in- o -between uersons in. ordinary' con- erns of life would have been co'nsid- "ed an obligation, not only of law, but honor, which no. self-respecting man ould possibly have, repudiated; sec- ndly, to vindicate the principle that mall nationalities are aat to bs crash- d by the arbitrary will of a strong ower; not for aggression, not even or maintenance of "selfish Interest, ut in. defence of principles, the main- enance of which vital to the civ- ization of the world." That, to put briefly, all the distress and sorrow f the present tribulation are worth hile. It Is not well with that coun- y, for whose citizens the dead have labored, and-died in vain.

And we can go further-than this. Before the war, the growth, of nations ia Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa had result- ed in tentative and cautious steps .owards some kind of federation wlth- n ,the Empire. The war, and the great services rendered, and being rendered, by the Overseas Dominions, with the distinct understanding that premiers will he consulted in 'anging terms of peace, have -brought iuch 'a scheme appreciably nearer. And whatever may be dfine, I want o emphasize the fact that the success- ul experience which Csnada has bad of a federal form of government must mean that our people and statesmen will be able to contribute perhaps more wisely and helpfully; to the hammer- ing out of a policy of Imperial Fed- eration tban the peoples Vn'd rulers of any other part of the Empire what- ever. Let us see, that to these questions 'we give due'.emphasis.' Tbe war and !the interest' aroused by it will-'make our task easy. Importance .of Conflict .We now consider very briefly how the program out- lined in. bur course of studies we find the problems here presented to us given reality by the war, and meth-' ods by- which, while using the .war to give life to1 our; work, we niav at the continually press upon'our oupils the importance of this con- flict. In so doing I, have selected, ccr- jflin material from the; work of each rade It nil! be obvious that thc nethod suggested may be extended .0 almost all the work done, and my selection is, I am sure, >erj im wrfeet.
