Now, how can our parents hope to. have strong, healthy sons when they are overburdened with work in tjjis. manner ? The truth of what I have just said is easily seen by noting the number of boyn at scliooj who have stooping shoulders arid white faces, Every trade nowadays has its union, and the sooner 1 tjiere is/an aritisweating union for schools the better it will be for all parties concerned,, There is, far top, muph home w^rk dqne and tqq l\ttlereaj teaching,'?,, . . , '
