It has been disappointing to
observe that many of our Primary
School children are unable to tell
the time by the clock.
I have had boys of age ten and
over being unable to tell the time
when I have asked them to look at
the clock in the home. When I ex-
pressed surprise their explanation
has bedn they are not taught to
tell the time at school.
This is deplorable when one re-
calls the days when the clock face-
with its movable hands was in evid-
ence in the schools.
The hands used to be manipulated
by both teacher and pupil to teach
the time but this is now of the
Perhaps the Ministry of Educat-
ion will take notice of this and
reintroduce into the schools the
ancient clock face with hands that
can be manipulated to tell the time.

sioner Mr. Allan Roger, presented a

Both church and state have
their legitimate laws and rules,

was. told not long ago that a'big
shot ? who is an apoatate, or
divorcee or both, tried to ob-
tain a certain right or privilege
in one of our Catholic churches -
perhaps by wanting to stand Spon-
sor for an infant in baptism or
some other favour, which is just
impossible; or it could have been
an attempt to embarrass the pastor.
My advice is: we should not pro-
voke or persecute the church, for
we might get badly hurt.
