TO THE EDITOR. Sir.—l am delighted to know that so talented and educated a lady as l)r Flizabeth Macdonahi has consented to contest the Education Board election. All honor to her, and I hope that the gentlemen of our school committees will be vhivalrous enough to give her their votes. For the-past two months oiu- women hnve shown what they can do in the way c>t organisation and despatch on patriotic lines. It is to be hoped our school committees will not fail to recognise the splendid work done by our women : and when a place of honor and responsibility is vacant —and one that a woman can fill with honor to herself and advantage to the cause of education—surely it is the least they can do to allow a woman to represent the larg': number of teachers, the majority of whom are women. It is well known that questions in regard to the education of our girls crop ur< from time to tinit.', and have to be dealt with, and who'is naturally better Jitted than an educated woman to give helpful advice on such questions? The law of eternal fitness ;if things seems to demand that a woman dioutd have a seat on our education noards. There is nothing new in our contention, for at Home, where the women have no vote, there have been for years women on boards of education, and the splendid work they have done is well known and acknowledged. The reports given by various school committeemen are tc the effect that women on their school committees are very helpful, so, from the plea of common sense and fair play, even more than that of chivalry. I appeal to those who have the power to vote for the lady candidate.—l am. etc.. L. .Hislop. October 19.
