By- The Blackboard EDUCATIONAL IDEALS Mr. Bickersteth's Views "There' was never a time in history when education was more needed than the present-and education of the right sort; because the great world conflict came after education had been compul sory for the first time for the European nations. If education had done its work properly, the Great Waar might well have been avoided."-The Rev. iK. Julian F. Eickersteth. When asked to discuss ideals-in edu cation, the head master of St. Peter's College readily gave an interview. Mir. Bickersteth said that if er acation were treated merely as the acqpiring of knowledge, hearing in mind the mIis takes and the failures of the past, it w-as powerless to build up a nation or to save a nation from sich a cala mity as had recently visited the world. "Australia has never felt the war as the European nations. It is pos sible for us to learn about wars. to ac quire knowledge concerning cause andi effect, but it is most difficult for us to realis...

GAWLER ROAD RECLASSI FtCATION GAWLER, Today. The reclassification of main roads throughout the district by the Advisory lRoads Board is causing some concern to district councils. In the district of Munno Param East the road fromn Gawler to One Tree Hili has been taken from the list of arterial roads and reclassified as a secondary one, thus making it subject to a pro portion of whatever grants are allo cated by Parliament from time to time. This road is very costly to maintain owing to the hilly nature of the district. That section in the Barossa district from Sandy Creek to Lyhdoch, which was formerly a district road, although connecting two main roads, has been classifled as an arterial road. The main road from Gawler will thus con tinue right on through Tanunda, Nuriootpa, to Eudunda. Another main road section'is that from Lyndoch to Williamstown. As one piece of land cannot be surrounded by. main roads the board removed that portion leading from Sandy Creek to W-illiamstown, a h...
