lines that will fit them for the occupation they wish to follow and also for the duties of citi zenship Employment Bureau It haa been a matter of frequent complaint that through lack in formation or guidance young people are apt to take up casual employment which though they are remunerative for the no Veal prepa ration for earning a living later in life The temptation to put a child into the first opening that presents itself is very great Due regard is oft en not paid to the capacities of the boys and girls concerned The result Is that many take up work that Cords no training and is without pros pect while many others are forced Into trades and professions for which they are unsulted This causes large waste tothe community at large and misery to the individual directly affected In order to put an end to this by cooperating with the parents and public spirited men labor organiza tions commercial organizations and employers the board is establishing an Educational Information

knowledge they have already gained The board wishes to Impress on the parents the importance of having their chil dren entering these continuation saliools as soon as possible after leav ing the day school This applies with greater force to the parents of young people who hava left the day schools for some time These continuation schools will also offer courses that will aid in making the young
