Fe iarT-T.mjjg!. 6TOSZ FLAI". Alberta. Teachers Knew Hardship In District's Early Days Teaching, in the days 50 years ago when Alberta was a mere toddler among Canada's provinces, was a calling that required an Iron constitution. .The "old hands" at the profession point out that the pioneers in the Three R's often cultivated young minds durln the day and then for good measure did more cultivating this time of a back-breaking nature In the lone battle to bring agricultural land under the plow. ' Wacei offered hv ar.hnnl hoards ' particularly in the' country districts were everything but work was scarce, were far from attractive. But at that, they drew their quota, for In the farming districts no one went hungry, regardless of the state of his pocketbook. The salary of a teacher in the Alberta counterpart of the "little red schoolhouse" 50 years ago was anywhere from $30 per month up. An average would be something like $50 per month, and there were those who thought this was a princely salary. CAME FROM EAST For example, there was a teacher who arrived from New Brunswick In 1906 armed with his teacher's license. Thirty-four years old, he had been working in his home province in the, east for $250 per year. He thought he had uncovered a fortune in the McKenzie school district, about 10 miles north of Tofield, where he was offered $600 annually. His board was reasonable: $10 per month. Answering the call of the west, this pioneer rural teacher arrived via a CPR "Harvesters' Excursion." The fare was $12 from Saint John, N.B., to Winnipeg. From Winnipeg to Edmonton cost another $8. Back in '06, it was an Edmonton far removed from the city bursting at its seams today. The ferry at the foot of 105 St. was running: the Hudson's Bay Company fort still dominated the valley. From the fort, Just above where the legislative building power plant stands today, there was a .mag nificentand uninterrupted view of the river valley. There was no High Level Bridge; no city powerhouse; no 105 St. bridge. TREK TO SCHOOL Or.ce in Edmonton, it wasn't hard for the easterner to find a teaching Job. Getting to McKenzie however, was another thing.

The teacher thought about it least of all. The hike from Edmonton behind him, this new teacher found he had to get his bearings, and a place to stay. Then came the hardest task of all for the recent ar-rival from the Marltlmes getting used to a prairie winter. The winter of 06-'07 still Is talked about by the ploners who lived through It. The temperature dropped to 50 below and stayed there, for what seemed like week after week. The farm at which the teacher boarded was "insulated" from the outdoors by a double thickness of brown paper. The paper worked wonders In stopping ordinary winds, but a big storm passed through the district and ripped it to shreds. There were holes In the paper large enough for the farm cats to crawl through, and some of them did In their search for warmth. The teacher's room had a good stove in it, and the bed was moved until it was almost on top of it A fire was kept burning all night and even at that, morning would find the pedagogue's moustache frozen to the bedclothes and a cat or two huddled under the blankets for warmth. Another feature of the bitterly cold days and nights was the boom ing of splitting Ice on Beaverhill Lake. The noise was "like distant thunder," the new teacher recalled later. Such was the life of a rural teacher. In the days when Alberta was the new baby In the .Canadian family of Provinces. Would Legalize "Small" Lotteries LONDON (CP) Parliament took a hard look Friday at the "con fusing, chaotic, inconsistent and unequal" laws governing Britain's No. 1 pastime betting and decided a little tidying up was Id order. i- Without a dissenting vote, the House of Commons gave second reading approval In principle to a private member's bill to legalize small lotteries, small whist drives and similar charitable- and nonprofit entertainments. Emphasis of the bill is on the word "small." It makes no attempt to unravel the whole range of legal curiosities governing other forms of betting such as horseracing and football pools. Ironically, the bill itself de pended on a lottery to reach the floor of .; toe Commons. It wa3 drawn in the sessional lottery held to determine which bills would be considered in the limited time set aside for discussion of legislation proposed by private members. Ernest Davies, Labor memDer and sponsor of the bill, described the present betting laws as "com pletely confusing, chaotic, incon- istent and unequal, and com pletely out of line with public opinion and common practice." VICAR COULD SELL A vicar, said Davies, could run a raffle at his sale of work in the church hall, but if he sold a ticket before the local member of Par-laiment had opened the function, he was in danger of arrest. As to betting, those who have the good fortune to have credit can pick up a telephone, get in communication with their bookmaker and place 1.000 on a horse or dog, whereas the man in the street, if he wants to place a bob on a horse with the bookie or with a runner at the street corner runs tie risk of getting into trouble." Sir Hugh Lucas-Tooth, under sec retary of state at the home office, sa'd amid cheers, the government was willing to offer the sponsors every assistance in detailed consideration of the measure in the committe stage. Sir Hugh described as "work able" the bill which seeks to legal ize small lotteries, involving not more than 500 and would limit prizes to 100. gai.t T w C C t V T Although second reading was approved without dissent, a number of members on both sides of the House spoke against the bill. Davies, tracing the development of the "muddled" gambling laws, said some of the present statutes date back to 1541 when Henry VIII introduced an act to ban "un-, lawful games" because at that time Henry was fearful the flower of English manhood would waste its time on games and lose Its skill with the bow and arrow. "Henry made all games Illegal although he entered the greatest lottery of all no fewer than six times." commented Davies. - r.r ( an '. v""-" ' r , ..
