2290 ‘PROCLAMATIONS, 1922. It is gratifying to know that in a time when public burdens have lain very heavy upon the peo(ple there has been everywhere a determined purpose to maintain e ucation unimpaired, m order that the coming eneration may be equipped, regardless of sacrifices m the presentfcior the increasing res onsibilities which 1t must bear. " Without vision the peoplg perish". Without education, there can be little vision. Of education it ma be said that "It is twice blest: it blesseth him' that `ves and that takes". It will be greatly worth the effort as an incident to the observance of Education Week, we can im ress this thought upon the young manhood and womanhood of iihe Nation and redirect their interest and patriotic zeal to the idea of making a proper contribution to educational work. It is regrettable that so few young men and women, equipped for such service, are nowadays disposed to give their time an talents to teaching. Education needs their youth, eagerness, zeal and enthusiasm. There is no school of discipline more effective than that in which the teacher goes to school.

Our education shouldys implant conceptions of public duty and private obligation broad enough to envisage the problems of a greatly distraught world. More than anythirf else, men and women need the capacity to see with clear eye an to contemplate with open, unprejudiced mind, the issues of these times.
