Sometimes one or another nationality predominates, but it is not an uncommon tmng to imu seven or ten or twelve nationalities represented in the group that sings 'o Canada" with fervor. Visitors to these schools are im pressed by the earnestness, or tne hnvs and ffirls. though it may be that thev are rather overawed by the invasion of outsiders and hiding their embarrassment by giving unnaturally close attention to their lessons. Such things have oeen known to happen in schools since the beginning of time. A peep into exercise books and a study of the registers, however, bears out the first impression to a large degree. True, there are some pupils who are behind their grades; pupils whose eyes dance with a mischievous light rather than glow with a keen desire for knowledge; pupils who are not strong on spelling and others whose penmanship is far from perfect; but in the main they are a hard working, studious lot. making the most of the educational facilities provided for them. Some of the faces bear the stamp of weariness that tells of early rising and manv chores done before school and waiting to be done after; some suggest the need of more play to round out young lives. Some of the young students know what they are going to be when they finish their schooling and their faces show it; others know what they want to be; still others are drifting. These conditions apply to the descendants of all the nations. In some cases financial conditions in the homes account for the wistful "I should like to be" or the happy-go-lucky "I don't know" with which a boy or girl answers the query "What are you going to do when you finish school?" One thing which particularly impressed the judges of the community progress competition sponsored by the Canadian National Railways was the fact that among the boys and girls who had a definite goal in mind, comparatively few in the schools visited planned to remain on the farm.

It isn't human! And it isn't necessary'! Your stomach won't be poisoned by every little indiscretion if you will just remember to give it the friendly aid of Phillips' Milk of Magnesia. It will sweeten the sour stystem and put things to" rights. Suppose you do overload your Stomach with those things that bring on acidity? Phillips' Milk of Magnesia will neutralize many times its volume in acid. Just take two spoonfuls before and after such over-indulgence. It's a very simple way to prevent those miserable mornings which follow too much to eat and drink. When you over-indulge eating, PHILLIPS' Made in Canada. school several pupils were interested in craftsmanship, but none except students in grade eieht found farming the most interesting subject on the curriculum. Grade eight, however, promised a fair r.umber of recruits for the agricultural profession. Dr. Wallace Talks Dr. R. C Wallace, prefnicr,! of the University of Alberta and chair man of the board of judges, nas an understanding; heart and he no doubt inspired many boys and girls to regard the matter from a new-angle, for in addressing the different urouria of voting students, he put in a quiet and convincing word for farming as a profession. He also pointed out an advantage which rural schools have over urban schools, in that they have a chance to link up the study of agriculture with a practical application of the knowledge they acquire from season to season. Crop rotation for instance, becomes a live thing to students when they see the system recommended in the text books put inr-i effect- In their own fields. Listenine to Dr. Wallace. I had the feeling that out of this com munity progress competition, tnere mirrht" come even greater things than the sponsors looked for. fommimitv interest in education would be eiven new impetus, of corn-set but the wider understand ing of conditions acquired by those whose chief concern is education might in the course of time, result in a readjustment of the curriculum which, in Dr. Wallace's words, would give to the rural high school student who does not plan to go to university, something which would be of special interest to him, and would helo him in his chosen pro fession. "Too much high school edu cation is, as it were, for university or Normal school." he said. Education in the rural schools of Alberta seems largely to have been founded with a struggle and carried on at times -with a struggle, but the ideal behind the formation of the school districts, the building of ochnnls and financing of educa tion eenerallv. has sustained the nioneers in their efforts. "Our com munitv had the idea that the church and school should form the cornerstone of the structure whicn thev were to build. said one pioneer of Norwegian descent in outlining the history of his district. In the Ukrainian settlements the sentiment was perhaps uinereni ITnlike the Scandinavians, the Uk rainians in their home land were largely an illiterate people. In his book "Ukraine." published in 1910. Professor Stephen Rudnitsky, of the University of Lemberg, states that "the number or uKramu m T'Wrsine who know how to read averages approximately 195 to the thousand." This was not. aue to indifference on the part of the Uk rainians, but to circumstances over which they had no control. Now in the new country where they are making their home they are going to see that their children have the opportunity denied them. Schools were opened in the early history of settlements, and are kept open in spite of financial depressions. "We shall keet our schools open at all costs." says the reeve of one muni cipality largely populated oy Ukrainians, and this appears to be the general sentiment. Take Study Seriously Scanning the faces of the pupils in these schools one has the idea that they are not permitted to think lightly or the advantages tneir fathers and mothers have provided for them at the price of hard toil. Little need for truant officers in those districts. In many rural districts largely populated by non-British born people, two roomed schools provide training up to and including grade eleven. Even in some one room schools, the teacher is taking pupils through grades nine and ten. The two roomed schools are usually staffed by two women or two men teachers. Occasionally a man and drinking, smoking don't suffer for hours! Nature will restore a proper alkaline balance in time, but Phillips' Milk of Magnesia acts immediately. A creamy, pleasant-tasting emulsion that eweet-ens the stomach, dispels that sour gas, and relieves the nausea and headache, and feeling of biliousness due to overdoing. (Phillips' miid laxative properties always help the bowels at such times). Make sure it's genuine. The signature of Chas. H. Phillips on the wrapper and bottle will tell you it's the real product endorsed by the- medical profession. Less Perfect preparations do not act the same. For a Healthy Mouth Use Phillips' Milk of Magnesia as a mouthwash every evening before retiring. Use Phillips Dental Magnesia, a superior toothpaste, to keep the teeth clean and white. MILK OF MAGNESIA us SUNSHINE AIDS THROUGH DANCE AT HIGH RIVER HIGH RIVER. Nov. 7 (Special) The Hallowe'en dance given by the local Elks lodge in aid of the Sunshine fund, was generously patronized by townspeople. The gross receipts from the event were donated to Sunshine, the Elks lodge paying all the incidental expenses. This fact added greatly to the popularity of the event, besides aiding substantially the Sunshine fund. Another party was held on the same evening at the home of Mr. Floyd Derrick when the ladies of the' Highwood W.I. entertained their friends at a Hallowe'en frolic. Cards, dancing and fortune-telling were features of the evening. The young people of the town organized a number of "spook" parties at various homes, and the juveniles made their annual canvas of the town, on the "trick or treat" principle. Adults, juniors ana juveniles were ail happily employed. with the result that Halloween parsed off with no destruction, no arrests, anil no aitermain. Pretty Wedding Held, Wetaskiwin WETASKIWIN.

Teacherages are important adjuncts or many rural schools and solve what is often a serious problem that of providing living accommodation for the teacher in a district where tne homes are usually none too large for the family. In many of the rural schools the attendance runs around forty to a room. Even in harvest time there were few empty seats in the schools visited, and idle moments were unknown to the teachers who are not only endeavoring to educate the children, but to make education attractive.

"I wish you coukl have heard the comment when I showed my cactus block. Well I never beard of putting cactus In a quilt, and haven't you gone modern. Nancy with your cactus? and I think that's adorable. I want to start right away. What colors do I use?" This was the gist of the conversation which Nancy reported to Peter after the sixth meeting of the Nancy Page Garden Bouquet Quilt Club. "Of course the cactus is old, old as the hills or the desert, but it is also 'modern' so I decided to put it in." The cactus like the tulip which preceded it stands upright In its urn.' The pattern for this was given earlier.

Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The competitions are open to communities having a resident population showing 70 per cent of continental European origin, first or second generation. Dr. R. C. Wallace, president of the University of Alber. ta: Dr. Fairfield of Lethbridge. director of the Dominion experimental farm, and Mrs. R. B. Gunn of Lloydminster, pnst president of the United Farm Women of Alberta judged the competitions in Alberta in 1930 and 1S31. This article was written by Edna Kells of Edmonton who accompanied the judges on their tour of inspection. Staff Reception At O.S.A. Happy Event of Season OLDS, Nov. 7. tSpeciali The staff reception of the Olds School of Agriculture was a pleasant affair, and marked the opening of the winter's social functions in connection with this institution. The hall was appropriately decorate! in keeping with the Hallowe'en season with softly shaded lights, window curtains showing silhouettes of cats, owls and bats, while the orchestra platform was a gaily latticed bower, below which a realistic oki witch was to be seen riding across a big orange moon. Balloons of ail colors were suspended from the ceiling giving the hall a fairylike appearance. . The guests were received by Principal and Mrs. James Murray. Miss L. Rndgeia and Mr. E. V. Phillips. Two short skits by staff members were uproariously received, the first "Cinderella, up to Date" was enacted bv the following: Mrs. G. R. Hole-ton. Mrs. C. Sweetapple. Mrs. H. McPhail. Miss Ruth Dean, Miss Hilda Albreoht. Mr. M. W. llalyon and others. The second one. "Sofapiiiio." or "The Tragic Triangle" was played hv Mrs. M. W. Malyon. Mrs. F. Parkinson, Mrs. C. Yauch, Mr. H. McPhail. Mr. C. Yauch. "A Grt-ac-quainted promenade followed, from which the crowd was dividr-d into groups and competitions carried on. Mrs. Murray presented the prizes for these games, while Mr. A. T. Kemp acted as master of ceremonies. Following the supper two hours of dancing was enjoyed by all. the music being supplied by a local orchestra. The Olds Eastern Star lodge welcomed its worthy grand matron. Mrs. Culiin3 of Edmonton, on her official visit on October 30. when more than seventy were present. Including visitors from the lorirres at Didsbury and Three Hills. Mrs. R. E. Stewart, of Calgary, who is associate matron of the Olds lodpe. was also present. Mrs. Hacking and Miss Elsie Stock were the 6o!o-ists for the evening. Following the programme, at which Mrs. Cullins spoke, a sumptuous banquet was served, the tables being centred with chrysanthemums. Mr. A. L. Harvey of Hanna, the worthy patron of the Olds lodge, acted as toast master. All visiting members were presented with carnations. 1 Quilt Club and flowers were appliqued. So they were ready to start just so soon as they had the pattern for the new flower. For this block Nancy suggested a soft sage or olive green for the cactus with a rather brilliant patch of red or strawberry pink for the blossom. Since this color is brilliant Nancy suggested that a figured fast colored material be used. The spikes o- ickers on th edge of the cactu- ,, put 'in with fast color embroidery cotton. They do not have to follow the design exactly, but are put in about as drawn. A very fine checked material may be used for the cactus leaves but a plain color is better Trace the design lightly on the triangle of white as indicated in the small inset design.

The house was made gay with Hallowe'en decorations, and with fortune telling, games and contests, the girls had a pleasant evening. Mary McGregor won the prize for the best costume. Fifty-two numbers of the C.G.I.T. and their friends sat down to supper, where Hallowe'en favors added further to the festivities. On Saturday afternoon the C. G. I.

At the W.C.T.U. meeting on Friday afternoon an excellent report of the provincial convention held at Edmonton was given by the dele-sates. Mrs. D. Haliburton and Mrs. y. W. Gaetz. One quotation from the address of Rev. Dobson was particularly interesting: "Temperance Does Not Mean Prohibition. It Means Self-control; but science teaches that self-control leaves with the first taste of liquor, so that the only way to get self-control is to prohibit the sale of liquor." The election of officers and superintendents for the year resulted as follows: President, Mrs. F. W". Gaetz; vice-president. Mrs. A. Conneil; recording secretary. Miss M.

The scrap book furnishes a splendid place for keeping all quilt patterns safely. After the pattern has been traced on cardboard cut it out and lay :on material. In cutting material be sure to allow one-quarter inch on fill sides for turning edges under. After these are turned, basted and pressed, applique the pieces with fine slanting invisible hemming stitches. Then with rather hoi.vy embroidery cotton make the prickers. At any time, now, the birda may be appliqued, if they have not already been put in. Two block3 are now finished. Next week the pattern is for the lily of the valley.

NEWS Edited by MADELINE AUSTIN HALLOWE'EN FESTIVITIES Ghosts have stalked, black cats have prowled, and iil-on.encd bats i have flapped blindly across, the black October sky. One more Hallowe'en night of fun and frolic has come and gone. But it did not come empty-handed, for All Saints' Eve brought with it many gaieties and good times. The first of these to be called to cur notice was that of the irst Baptist C.G.-ites, who, in costumes of every description, commenced their evening with a grand march. in which ghosts, clowns, gypsies and bold Spaniards took part. A dainty fairy and a black cat were selected as the winners. The "fireflies" group had charge of the games and kept everyone on their tiptoes wondering what was coming next. Betty Hayden, Audrey Maclean, Nora Pennel and Christine Moir were the lucky girls who carried off the prizes. Then came a most important part of the evening, the refreshments, served in a room decorated with orange and black streamers, pumpkins, cats and witches, by the Ail-Round Squares group. The members of the Tru-se-re-lo group, wearing orange and black aprons and caps, startled the assembled guests by putting before them the most unusual menu: Hobgoblin delight. , Shivering ghost salad. Witches' brew. Broomsticks Cat's meow. Skeleton's feast. Witches' tears. Goblin balls. Only two dishes could be ordered at once, and great were the deliberations on what would be chosen. Greater still were the shocks received when persons ordering such choice items as skeleton's feast and cat's meow were presented with everyday ham sandwiches and whipped cream. The evening's entertainment ended with a stunt in which ferocious cats and a very courageous dog shared the honors with the human members of the cast. The actors, animals included, were members of the O.V.R. group. The whole party was planned by the girls themselves, and so each one felt that she had a share in its success. We next heard of a rollicking good time had at a party given by the Be Square group of Hillhurst United. These girls, who brought along their mothers and fathers to share their fun, were first told a "witch story," a sad tale of a certain John Smith who came to a most horrible end. To fully illustrate the point of the story, the guests were taken to the Witches' Cavern, whoso gloomy interior were the dissembled parts of the ill-fated John Smith. Each guest had the eerie pleasure (or displeasure as the case might be) of observing these part"!, under the guidance of a spooky being, draped in white. Then came entertainment in the shape of Hallowe'en games and contests, and a recitation by Margaret Bridger. The refreshments were a most satisfactory climax to an altogether successful evening. The Bucannettes of this same church tell also of a party held Friday evening. They, too. shared their good time, the participants you I Vrrf X" ' ' ' r - iTK - :mh'U i I ' 'sr-'V:: M V ?.

The encouragement of a courageous wife or a capable nurse will greatly help him to win back confidence and strength and she will also see that when spells of discouragement come on he does not miss a single dose of the treatment which is most certain to restore the exhausted nervous system. Dr. Chase's Nerve Food Reception Honors Miss Agnes McPhail HONOR GUEST " MISS AGNES MacPHAIL Who was the guest of honor at a reception recently arranged at Medicine Hat. Later she met members of the Canadian club at dinner and addressed a meeting of high school students before proceeding on her western tour. As a prominent member of the Federal hou.a, Miss MacPhail is well known in Canada. this time being the C.G.I.T. group from the Mountview Home. All manner of games and contests were enjoyed, and then the Bucannettes put on a little skit, called "Sewing for the Heathen." The guests reciprocated with a minuet, performed by four of their number. The evening closed with a most satisfying dinner, for which partners were chosen. Knox United also reports a Hallowe'en party from their church, when the Golden Key group entertained a junior group at a masquerade party, at which all sorts of games were played and fortunes told, to be follcwed by refreshments. 'Mid pumpkins and witches and other such Hallowe'en arrangements, the Pro-Cathedral C.G.-i'tes held a very enjoyable Hallowe'en party. The girls, in masquerade costume assembled in the dark club room. A ghost welcomed each guest with a ghostly shake of the hand by the light of a dim lantern. From there the girls went upstairs to enjoy games under the leadership of Helen Whistlecroft. Afterwards, the ever-popular "eats" were served, and each girl was given a Hallowe'en serviette containing sandwiches, cookies, and lollipop. Leona Bailey, in a gypsy costume took the prize for the most original costume. The. "Barneys" of St. Earnahas followed the example of these other groups in having a good time at their Hallowe'en party on October 23. where they played many and varied games. The evening closed with refreshments after the girls had had their fortunes told. "All Nations" Tea The Live Wires group from Crescent Heights United are holding an All Nations tea in their church on November 14, from 3 until 6 p.m. There will be an interesting programme and cup reading during the afternoon. They are working to make this just a little bit different from the are 9 Medicine Hat Residents Actively Engaged in Club Programmes (Special to the Herald) MEDICINE HAT, Nov. 7.-A large number of visitors attended the home of Dr. F.

Miss MacPhail afterwards met members of the Canadian Club at dinner and addressed the high school students on Tuesday morning before leaving on the noon train for Calgary. Three groups of C.G.I.T. held a very successful Hallowe'en party in the basement of St. Barnabas church on Saturday afternoon. Decorations In yellow and black with tiny yellow and bronze 'mums were very effective on the tea-tables, which were in charge of Margaret Mills. A stall of home cooking, under the direction of Helen Spencer, and a candy stall with Joan Cleaves dispensing its wares were among the attractions. A novelty booth for which Dorothy Wharton had been responsible, but who, unfortunately, was unable to be present owing to serious illness, was taken by Helen Hill, the whole showing the great interest taken in C.G.I.T. work bv these groups. Two new leaders were appointed this year. Miss L. McMurdy in charge of the intermediate group, and Miss Catherine Perrin the juniors. Miss Mary Wharton, the senior leader, having been connected with the work for several years. St. John's Ladies' Aid held its annual supper on Saturday evening In the church rooms where a greater number than ever before were catered to by the members of tho aid. More than 300 guests sat down to the splendid repast, which, though taxing the efforts of the hostesses to the utmost, gave them a pleasurable feeling of the success of their efforts. W.I.
