NEGLECT OF SECONDARY EDUCATION. DE. PRESCOTT'S VIEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 28 March 1924

NEGLECT OF SECONDARY! EDUCATION. DR. PRfiSCOTT'S VIEWS. I A vigorous and thoughtful ad dress was delivered by Dr. Prescott, of Newington College, at Bowral, on , the occasion of laying the founda tion stones of the Methodist Girls' College. Owing to the unfavorable conditions created by the showery weather. Dr. Prescott did not touch as fully upon some phases of hfo subject as he had intended, but we feel sure his remarks will be read with interest. He commenced by eaying he would like to have spoken on the relation between the State schools and those founded by pri vate bodies, urging that there was no antagonism between them. Both had their place and could work side by side with mutual appreciation. But he wanted chiefly to urge the point that what had been done for the secondary schools of the State was paltry. The Univrsity, in con trast, had been splendidly endowed by private benefactions; £600,000 at least had been contributed by them. ana with the support of the Govern ment w...

OUR POETIC BOOSTERS. VI.— DAWN IN BOWRAL. When the sun peeps over the Gib.,] Blue smoke is ascending in columns unending, t For someone is tending a fresh kindled fire; aweet smelts appetising are con stantly rising, And from out BurTadoo as the train rushes through. Noisy jackasses' mirth sparkles out loud and long, For they herald the birth of day with a eong. As the sun peeps over' the Gib. When the sun peeps over the Gib, Grey clouds touched with gold, a rare beauty unfold; Oh, 'tis fair to behold them kissed by the sun, The high arch of heaven a pink glow is given As daylight is breaking; its glory partaking From rare tinted fountains, gliding silently by, Resembling hun mountalna sflamn in the sky, As the sun peeps over the Gib. When the sun peeps over the Gib, The birds then are wakitag, their glad music making, The tree tops are shaking their leaves in the sun; A gay thrush is singing, her notes _ gaily ringing, While towards Mittagong in a riot of Bong, The magpies are tril...

A FAIR WARNING. ONE THAT SHOULD BE HEEDED BY ALL. Frequently the first sign of kidney trouble is a slight ache or pain in the loins.

This tested remedy has been used in kid ney trouble for years and is recom mended all over the civilised world. Read the following: — Mrs. J.

My back ached terribly at limes and every movement made the pain more acute. Other symptoms were dropsical swellings on my legs and ankles, a constant tired feeling, and irregular secretions. I was really far from well, and often used to feel quite knocked up. One day a friend ad vised me to ta...

The contestants, who had tra velled a long way, made all the events willing, especially so in tfye pony hunting contest. This was an exceptionally difficult event to judge. The three ponies that were called be fore Messrs. Quirk, Irving and Han rahan (judges) each held the same total of points. They 'were each sent for another course of three jumps with the same result. It even tuated with a division between Mr. H. Smidt's grey and Mr. Smith's chestnut. The grand national went to Mr. J. Smith's beautiful brown, while R. Norman's well known horse came a close second. The pony race was a great success, proving that racing at the Meadows is popu lar, and judging by the time to ...

BACK TO SANITY. (Published by Arrangement.) [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 28 March 1924

BACK TO SANITY. (Published by Arrangement. The cablegrams that have been reaching the Australian Press from America, describing side issues re garding the- failure of Prohibition, are contemporaneous with a leading article in the 'Freeman s Journal (Dublin). 'The Prohibitionists,' says the publication, 'are discovering that, while it is easy io make a country 'dry' on paper, it is another thing to keep it 'dry' in practice against the popular will.' In referring to the present repeal by New York State of the Prohibi tion Enforcement Act, 'Freeman's' says: 'The - majority of the New Yorkers felt that they had an op portunity from a delirium into san ity. If the saloon was all that the Pussyfoots declared it to be, it was less baneful in its effects than the forces which Prohibition has loosed to rage at will. At its worst, the saloon was no more than a police problem. 'Legislation that, instead of re fleeting the will of a community, is enforced upon it by dictatorial me thods, howev...

The Commis sioners, acting on the assumption that VP TV mativ npAnln in tlia Miiin. - — . ,'T 1-CV-J-11: in uic urni try, who under ordinary circum stances pay a visit to the metropolis at Easter time, would strongly de sire to .be in Sydney on thiB most historic occasion, have decided to ad vance the ordinary Easter schedule of cheap trains fry about a week. This will , serve the dual purpose of providing cheap means of transit for country people who would go only to see the fleet, and fbr those who would probably stay an ? Sydney over the Easter season, to take part in the Royal Show and other Easter attrac- : tions.. The train to run on the 7th April is timed to leave Moss Vale at 5.53 a.m., Bowral at G.G a.mi, and Mittagong at 6.12 a.m. Full par- j ticulars are given in handbills ob- ; tainable at any railway station.
