    One of the victims of the Royal Australian Air Force crash near Richmond, Sydney, yesterday, was 23, and was the youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. W. King, of Wilkins Street, Fairfield. Educated at the Junction Park State School, he served for six years in Brisbane with the Royal Australian Naval Reserve as a wireless operator, and was employed as a temporary operator at the General Post Office before joining the staff of Macdonald, Hamilton, and Co., last year. A year ago he joined the Air Force as a wireless operator. His progress was marked, and he was promoted to leading aircraftsman recently. Just before the outbreak of war he returned to Queensland with members of the Royal Air Force Selection Board, and he was a member of one of the crews of the Anson bombers which made a flight around Australia recently. Several weeks ago he advised his family that probably he would make a training flight to Sydney, and his mother, father, and elder brother, L. King, motored to Sydney in the hope of meeting him. His flight was postponed, however, until yesterday, and meanwhile his relatives had returned to Brisbane. Mr. N. W. King, who is ground engineer for Qantas Empire Airways at Rose Bay. Sydney, and formerly of Archerfield, is a brother.

    SCHOOLS ZONED IN DANGERAREAS: WAR PLAN DETAILS
    UNDER detailed war-time school plans, released by the Premier and Minister for Education (Mr. Forgan Smith) last night, the city has been divided into three zones based on the degree of potential danger estimated by military authorities. In certain areas parents need not send their children to school at all. The proposals, which were sub- mitted by the Director-General of Education (Mr. L. D. Edwards) were approved by Cabinet. All children reaching compulsory school age this year will not be permitted to enrol. The plan sets out three stages—precautionary, emergency, and crisis. No provision is made for evacuation until the crisis stage is declared. This stage is: — when there is danger of intense bombing or immediate threat of invasion. The Premier said that it was proposed:—
    (1) To discontinue, for the time being, the ordinary inspection of teachers and schools.
    (2) To place in each of the large coastal towns an inspector of schools; to require him to make preparations for any stage of emergency; and, to that extent, to delegate to him responsibility and authority in accordance with the general principles of the scheme.
    (3) To require head teachers in these towns to report immediately to their headquarters in order to assist the inspectors.
    (4) To require inspectors and head teachers to offer every assistance to school authorities not under the control of the State. Primary school pupils who live in school areas other than those in zone A must attend the schools in their own districts except in cases where they may travel to other schools wholly by safe or comparatively safe routes.
    Trenches In Grounds
    It is recommended that, where practicable, shallow slit trenches be dug in the grounds of schools in cities and towns in danger areas. Where the nature of the ground precludes the digging of trenches, school basements might be shored. The assistance and co- operation of local bodies, school committees, and parents' associations will be sought in the construction of trenches. Early in the school year the head teachers will be required to explain to parents and residents the purpose of precautionary measures and to seek their co- operation in putting them into effect. COMPULSION RELAXED Compulsory clauses of the Education Act will be suspended for six months or until otherwise determined in the following places:
    (a) Brisbane — all schools within a radius of five miles from the G.P.O.
    (b) Bundaberg, Bowen, Cairns, Gladstone, Ipswich, Mackay, Maryborough, Mt. Morgan, Rockhampton, Sarina, Thursday Island, Townsville.
    Under the Act it is compulsory for parents of children between the ages of 6 and 14 years to send them to school for at least 60 days in each half-year. Exceptions are made if the child is sick, if there is no State school within two miles of the home, or if the child has been educated up to a prescribed standard. Where possible all day schools will continue to function with the following exceptions :
    Admission of pupils to preparatory I grade, children aged 5 years, in coastal defence areas to be suspended for six months or until otherwise determined.
    Pre-school centres, nursery, or kindergarten schools, not to be permitted to reopen.
    The hours in all schools in coastal civil defence areas, except one-teacher and two-teacher schools, may be staggered from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in such a way that not more than 50 per cent of the gross enrolment will be present at one time. Not To Reopen Because of the extreme congestion at the Central Technical College, Brisbane, and the State Commercial High School, where there are approximately 1500 students, these schools will not reopen. It is proposed to obtain other buildings at different points, so that not more than 375 will attend each centre. Provision has been made to close other schools if the Premier declares an emergency stage. Proposals to operate if an emergency stage is declared are: — In certain danger areas, such as Townsville and Ipswich, it is not possible for pupils to travel daily to schools in safer areas. Consequently these areas may pass direct from the precautionary to the crisis stage. Educational facilities should, wherever possible, be provided during this stage. All arrangements for education in the various centres will be in accordance with plans already evolved. These plans entail the transfer of children from Zone A to Zone B or C, and the working of schools in these assigned districts on a part-time basis. The details of the plans evolved were drawn up in accordance with the following general principles:—
    (a) Children may be distributed and taught in small groups in various locations, using either the class group or the small school group as the unit of organisation.
    (b) Where such distribution is decided upon for A schools the school building should be considered along with other buildings as one of the possible centres of instruction.
    (c) The days or hours of attendance may be staggered.
    (d) The syllabus may be modified by head teachers in consultation with district inspectors.
    (e) Schools may be removed wholly or in part to use the buildings of other schools. When two schools use the same building simultaneously each should function as a separate entity. When the buildings are used by two or more schools in succession on the same day the minimum time for daily instruction should be three hours, with an interval of at least half an hour between the dismissal of one school and the assembly of another.
    (f) In the case of opportunity classes, the children who are physically deficient or of a very low mentality should be excluded from attendance. The children who are merely backward might be distributed amongst the ordinary classes of the school.
    (g) Use will be made of the Primary Correspondence School lesson sheets. All preparations have already been made by the correspondence school to meet in- creased demands.
    If Crisis Occurs
    Steps to be taken should a crisis stage be declared, are: —
    In the crisis stage : provision is made for the voluntary evacuation for the voluntary transportation of pupils from danger areas. Children of primary schools in these areas will be granted the opportunity of evacuating from these centres to safer areas.
    No education facilities will be provided in the centres evacuated. The Department has in preparation plans for the billeting and the education in safe areas of children whose parents agree to their evacuation. The scheme does not provide for children under the age of 8 years. Action has been taken to appoint evacuation and reception officers with their deputies, and to allocate to them areas in accordance with a plan arranged by the department. These officers will be required to secure information regarding billeting and hostel capacity in reception areas under the headings of:—
    (1) Private billets;
    (2) hostels, hotels, boarding-houses, public halls, and shearing sheds.
    THREE DANGER GRADES

    ALL COASTAL SCHOOLS SHUT
    UNTIL CHANGE SEEN IN WAR
    ALL schools, State and non-Governmental, in the whole of the Queensland coastal belt and the far north will remain closed until further notice. Efforts will be made to continue instruction of State pupils through the Government Primary Correspondence School. It is hoped also to- arrange broadcast lessons. Closure was decided on by the State Cabinet yesterday. The Premier (Mr. Forgan Smith), who is also Education Minister, said that the war situation, on the latest information, had assumed such gravity that it had been considered advisable to take this action. Cabinet had considered the question from the point of view that the protection of children was of first consideration, and it would be unwise to 'hesitate to take the utmost precaution for their safety. The Government .was firmly of opinion that there should be no resumption of attendance at schools until the position was eased, or at least until the most effective means had been provided for the protection of the children. Conferences had been held with the military authorities, but the State Government accepted full responsibility for the ' decision. The official proclamation de fining the area will be issued without delay. In addition to Brisbane, main centres affected by the reopening ban are: — - . Ipswich, Southport, Coolangatta, Redcliffe, Gympie, Mary- - borough, Bundaberg, Gladstone, Rockhampton, Mackay, Bowen, Townsville, Cairns, Nambour, Kingaroy, Mt. Morgan, Sarina, Proserpine, Home Hill, Ayr, Ingham, Tully, Innisfail, Babinda, Gordonvale, Mossman, Port Douglas, Cooktown, Normanton, Burketown, and Thursday Island. , Schools at Toowoomba and Charters Towers will be allowed to reopen. However, it is not compulsory for parents to send their children to school at those places. Warwick is excluded from the ban, and all schools may reopen there. It was pointed out last night that in some instances some schools inland from the coast, but included in the defined area, might be permitted to reopen later. An investigation would be' made of schools that might be considered to be in safe areas, and these would be excluded from the ban. Some of the-'teachers from the schools which are not reopening will supplement the staff of the correspondence school.
    TAKEN BY SURPRISE T
    he Government's decision took Brisbane secondary schools by surprise. To-day the Brisbane Grammar School head master (Mr. G. Carson Cooling) will seek an interview with the Premier.' Both he and the principal of the Church of England Grammar School (Canon W. P. P. Morris) said last night that they 'had no idea what course their plans would take until meetings of the administrative bodies were held. They contended that the schools should be opened at the normal time until a deterioration in the war situation dictated otherwise. They declared that the closure of the schools would only create panic. Methodist-Presbyterian college principals already have evolved a comprehensive system of tuition by correspondence, and authorities of Roman Catholic schools and colleges will discuss immediately the inauguration of a system of correspondence lessons.
    'Lot Of Difficulty' '
    If we had been given a few months' notice we could have made satisfactory arrangements,' said Canon Morris. 'Now it is going to create a' lot of difficul ties.' He said that he had informed parents that the college would be opening and already ? students were on their way from distant 1 places. A meeting of the school council would be held imme diately. 'We will. not be able to find the equivalent of our present school anywhere,' he continued. 'There are about 15 buildings scattered over 53 acres, with a lot of natural protection, and providing we com ply with the Government's A.R.P. regulations, I think we should be allowed to carry on. Meanwhile, we propose to proceed with enrol ments, and parents are asked to watch advertisements in The Courier-Mail in case of alteration or postponement of the date of opening,' he continued. '.We hope to get the regulations rescinded or postponed. We can't suddenly move our schools.' Mr. Carson-Cooling said that his school's activities would not cease. 'Something will have to be done,' he said. 'The matter will be dis cussed immediately at a meeting of the Board of Trustees.' He agreed with Canon Morris that the schools should be allowed to reopen for the benefit of the boys. Air raid trenches were to have been started to-day, and would have been completed when school started. All precautions for the safety of the students had been taken. So far enrolments had not been affected.
    Correspondence Plans
    Methodist college' principals had completed plans for instituting a correspondence system pending the opening of boarding schools in the country for students of the three Brisbane schools, the secretary of the Presbyterian and Methodist Schools' Association (Mr. E. T. Campbell) said last night. The three principals would meet soon to draw up unified correspondence classes, which' would been on February 9. The principal of the State Primary Correspondence Schools (Mr. W. A. Zerner) said that Queensland would have one of the largest correspondence schools in the British Empire soon. Already there had been more' than 6000 enrolments, which exceeded by 178 the greatest number on the rolls at any time last year. Now that State schools would be closed they would possibly have to cater for an additional 10,000 students. 'Provision had been made for an extra 5000,' he said, 'so we are not unprepared. I am quite confident that the huge increase will be handled competently.'
    Trenches To Be Dry
    Digging of school trenches should go on, the Director-General of Education (Mr. L. D. Edwards) said last night. It was most important that the work should be completed. This safeguard should be provided, he said. Danger might lessen sufficiently to permit the re-opening of schools, and it was essential that slit trenches should, be ready. A surprise attack might occur. In addition, some of the schools might be needed as hospitals, and the trenches would be of great value. 'I have no hesitation in asking parents to carry on with this work,' said Mr. Edwards. 'The trenches may not be needed. I hope they will not. But they should be there, ready to protect the children. In fact, the military authorities advise that all open areas should be trenched.
    ' Committees' Plans
    Many school committees met last night to complete arrangements for volunteer working parties. These schools asked The Courier-Mail last night to appeal for workers: — Moorooka, Junction Park (9 a.m.) , Bulimba, New Farm (9 a.m.), Chermside (3.30 p.m.). South Brisbane Intermediate School, Graceville (6.30 p.m.), Yeronga, Enoggera, Ashgrove (5 p.m.), Toowong (Saturday. 2 p.m.). All asked that picks and shovels should be taken. Norman Park State School has called a meeting of parents, past pupils, and residents for 7.30 to niftht. Slit trenches cannot be dug at Petrie Terrace Boys' School because the ground is either solid rock, or filling material. Plans have been prepared by the Public Works Department to build trenches by using a rock wall face on one side of the trench, and a hardwood wall on the other. The trenches will be 5ft. above the ground surface. Mr. W. H. Rahmann, district inspector of schools, met head teachers and staffs of all schools in Maryborough yesterday, also several teachers from outside districts. He outlined plans for slit trenches. Subsequently trench sites were selected at various schools. Trench digging was begun at Warwick State High School yesterday. Teachers, parents, and past students are working. Head teachers of other State schools will seek the co-operation of school committees and parents.

    SCHOOLS STILL NEED TRENCHES
    ALTHOUGH considerable progress in digging slit trenches has been reported to the Education Director (Mr. L. D. Edwards), head teachers are still emphasising the urqent need for volunteer labour. 'With, the proper assistance]' trenches should be finished this week-end,' said one man yesterday. Much assistance had been given by outside bodies, said Mr. Ed wards yesterday. At some schools soldiers and airmen had helped, and work had been expedited by tractors, ploughs, and shovels lent for the occasion. Where the nature of the ground made trenches impracticable sandbag breast-works were being constructed, he said. This had been started at Petrie Terrace Boys' School, but later reports from the Works Department had necessitated that, trenches should be dug immediately in the area specified. Parents are asked urgently to meet on Monday at 8 p.m. Brisbane Boys' College, Toowong, calls upon its pupils to help to build slit trenches and other air raid shelters at the college from 9 a.m. daily.
    How Schools Fared
    Progress in 'other centres includes: —
    Kelvin Grove.— Volunteers are needed for this afternoon. The school committee wants old packing cases for use as duck-boards.
    New Farm. — Volunteers and teaching staff have begun trench digging; volunteers wanted for the week-end from 1 p.m. to-day.
    Nundah— Six teachers and seve ral present and past pupils were hard at work during the . week. Progress is satisfactory, but many helpers are required this week St. Aidan's,
    Corinda.— Working bees to begin at 2 p.m. to-day.
    Graceville.— Upset by the rain, but hope to finish to-morrow. Re sponse disappointing, as most of the work has been done by the committee, and staff.
    Fortitude Valley: Trenches fin ished at infants' and girls' schools. Sherwood: Volunteers required for Saturday and Sunday.
    Central Practising School : Work to begin at 8.30 a.m. to-day. Parents of children, members of the committee, past and senior pupils asked to help. The same request comes from Camp Hill.
    South Brisbane Intermediate: Adults and past pupils asked to begin work to-day and to bring picks and shovels.
    Greenslopes: A special appeal is made for a determined effort to complete digging to-morrow.
    Wooloowin: There is still much to do, and digging will continue this week-end.
    Junction Park: One hundred feet have been completed, but further help from parents is essential. Digging is proceeding daily, and the desire is for early completion.
    Nundah Convent school has established a record since their initial meeting was held last Sunday. A band of workers arrived early next morning, and by 6 p.m. the job was finished. Enough trenches were dug to accommodate all scholars.
    Nundah: More volunteers are wanted, and a big drive will be made this week-end. Nundah: Plenty of workers wanted—- Work: will proceed all the week-end.

    Many Schools Likely To Open Next Week
    THE State Government may permit- the reopening of a large number of schools next week. The whole position will be reviewed at the State Cabinet meeting on Tuesday. Cabinet will have before it a survey of all the schools closed under the Government's order. This survey will show that many )f the schools, particularly in country areas, can be opened with but causing undue risk to the childiren. The number, of country schools that may be allowed to resume will probably be between 300 and 400. . In the metropolitan area the decision to reopen will be more difficult, but it is expected that some of the schools will resume. Those permitted to resume will be the schools that are riot close to 'target' areas, and which have adequate slit trench protection. Pupils from areas where schools have to remain closed may be educated at these schools. This would be achieved by staggering hours.
    Call For Diggers
    Many city schools will make a concentrate'' effort to complete the digging of slit trenches this week-end. Rain held up work in many cases, and further delay was caused by flooding. However, suggestions of reopening have brought fresh appeals to parents from head masters and school committees. All with work unfinished have asked parents to make this' week- end an 'all-in' effort. The head master of New Farm school (Mr. A. R. Kay) said yesterday that only four people apart from the committee had volunteered. Answer to tne drainage problem has come from Holland Park. With trenches already on a natural slope, the diggers have made flooding impossible by planning for a mitre trench, 6in. wide by 3in. deep; running down the centre of those already dug. This will be filled with cinders to soak up moisture. The head master (Mr. A. M. Duncan) and the citizens' committee said yesterday that they wished to thank the people of the district for their wonderful co-operation. Thirty feet of trenches were dug on Foundation Day, and only the weather delayed progress. Cinders had been obtained, and a working bee was requested to dig mitre trenches in the week-end. Coorparoo Appeal Teachers in shorts and sandals have been responsible for most of the work at Coorparoo. 'Recruiting' boards are appealing for further helpers. At many schools, including Oakleigh, the spade work has been done, and spare timber has been obtained for improving the floors of the trenches. 'As much as the parents can do they have done,' said the head master of the Sherwood school (Mr. W. J. Williams). Rocky ground had been encountered, he added, but in an emergency the trenches could be used. The Works Department had promised to give assistance. Squads of boys took advantage of the sunshine yesterday to bale out the trenches at Toowong. The soggy ground has caused the sides to fall in, and that will have to be rectified in 'the week-end. Workers are wanted to complete another 100ft. Valley school hopes for a record rally of parents this week-end. Nearly 300 feet of trenches have been dug at Junction Park, and only the co-operation of parents is needed to make the trenches ready for immediate use. At Yeronga a big working bee is expected to complete 'digging by Monday.

    SCHOOLS TO REOPEN ON MONDAY IF PROTECTED
    MOST of the 300 State primary schools in Queens land that are still closed and the secondary schools will reopen next Monday provided that adequate provision has been made for the protection of the pupils. No schools regarded as being in danger areas will be permitted to reopen. In the next three days education officials, in consultation with the Army authorities, will decide which schools are regarded as being in danger areas. Among these which are unlikely to reopen on Monday are Kangaroo Point, Moorooka, Cooper's Plains, Amberley (Ipswich), and St. Helen's (Mary borough). Provision will be made by the Education Department for the absorption of the pupils of closed schools into other schools. No child under six years will be allowed to attend the schools which reopen. Hours of children below the sixth grade will be staggered. Only sixth and seventh grade pupils will be allowed to attend in Townsville and Cairns. Suspension of the compulsory attendance clause of the Education Act is being continued in the coastal areas. The department will take the responsibility of seeing whether the prescribed conditions have been complied with before deciding whether a school shall reopen or remain closed until all requirements are met. There are approximately 1800 State primary schools in Queens land. About 1000 outside the coastal belt resumed school routine on February 2. Nearly 530 were reopened last Monday.
    Metropolitan State primary schools closed at present are:—
    Ascot, Ashgrove, Auchenflower (lnfants), Breakfast Creek, Brighton, Bulimba, Buranda (boys', girls, and infants' school, Cunio Hill, Cannon Hill, Chermside. Cooler's Plains. Coorparoo, Corinda, Darra, Dutton Park, Eagle Junction. East Brisbane, Enoggera, Fortitude Valley (boys, girls, and lnfants), Gracevllle, Greenslopes. Hamilton, Hemmant, Hendra.

Ipswich district primary schools that are still closed include Amberley, Blackstone. Blair, Brassall, Bundamba, Central Iboys', girls', and infants' schools), Churchill. Ipswich North. Race view. Silkstone. and Ipswich West.
    Conditions Of Reopening
    The decision to permit schools to reopen next week under certain conditions and with certain reservations and exceptions was announced by the Education Minister (Mr. Jones) yesterday following a conference with the Premier (Mr. Forgan Smith). Stating that suspension of the compulsory attendance clause of the Act would be continued, Mr. Jones said that attendance at schools in the coastal areas must involve a certain amount of risk. Parents living in those areas were not compelled to send their children to school, and they must realise that when they elected to do Sb it was at their own risk. Conditions under which schools may reopen and other decisions announced by Mr. Jones are: —
    (a) Secondary schools or secondary departments of schools may reopen on Monday next provided that they satisfy the Education Department that they have sufficient trench or other shelters to accommodate the pupils in attendance and that the shelters are in good order.
    (b) Boarding schools at which the boarding establishment is separated from the school proper shall provide separate shelters for the boarders.
    (c) Business or coaching colleges may reopen provided that shelters are' available or that the number of students in attendance at any one time does not exceed 30.
    (d) Primary schools where well drained shelters are available may reopen under the following conditions and with the following reservations: —
    No school to function unless trenches are in good condition. At least 2ft length of trench should be available for each child in attendance at any one time. Sixth and seventh grades (the two highest school grades) are to at tend during the normal school hours, and, provided that trench shelter of sufficient length or other shelter of sufficient size and strength is available, the school hours shall be staggered so that each child in the grades below the sixth has three hours of instruction a day. Extended homework can be used.
    In Townsville and Cairns only sixth and seventh grade pupils to attend.
    The Intermediate School at Cairns not to reopen as such, but to be used to accommodate some of the High School pupils. The pupils who would ordinarily have attended the Cairns Intermediate School to attend their former schools. (It is estimated that this will reduce the school attendances at Townsville and Cairns to less than one-sixth of the attendances in normal times.)
    Primary school pupils who live in comparatively safe areas must attend schools in those areas. Children should not be per mitted to travel long distances to school, unless they go from the centre of a town to the out skirts without travelling through a danger zone. For special reasons certain State schools to be specified by the Education Department will not be permitted to reopen, and non-State schools in these districts will be required to observe the decision of the Education Department in regard to State schools. Responsibility for ensuring that the prescribed conditions were observed in letter and in spirit would devolve upon the Director-General of Education (Mr. L. D. Edwards) , whose decision would be final, said Mr. Jones. Brisbane secondary schools plan to reopen on Monday. Principals said yesterday that they were confident their shelter accommodation would pass Government inspection. Most have dug slit trenches, using bushes for camouflage.

    Call To Dig Trenches At Schools
    OPENING of schools on Monday will give an incentive to parents to complete air raid trenches this week-end, for the Education Departments rule is no shelter, no school. Many trenches have to be over hauled to repair defects caused by recent rains. Others have to be strengthened, drained, or completed, and last night a number of schools appealed for extra helpers to-day. The secretary of Milton State School Committee (Mr. E. T. Cramb) asked parents to help build "surface trenches" in the school grounds. He said that as the slit trenches dug in the ground were filled with mud, and useless, it was necessary to build surface trenches of sand and cement. The Works Department had sup- plied sand, bags, and cement, but parents must supply the labour. The school would not open until the trenches, which would be 4ft high and 2ft wide, were complete. They would hold 300 children. Parents should apply at the school at 1 p.m. to-day.
    800FT. OF TRENCH
    Before Yeronga State School can open 800ft of slit trenches must be completed. All parents are urged to assist, starting to-day at 1.30 p.m. Excavation tools should be brought, and women helpers are asked to provide refreshments. Wooloowin School Committee wants 200ft more trench dug this afternoon and to-morrow, and appeals for parents to help in digging, taking shovels and picks if available. Timber for trenches at Kelvin Grove School has arrived. The chairman of the Girls and Infants' School Committee (Ald. R. S. Griffiths) appeals for the assistance of parents and friends to place it in position.
    Junction Park school has nearly 400ft of slit trenches ready, but this is not sufficient. Parents and other helpers are invited to dig more during the next two days. Two sets of trenches have been dug at Fortitude Valley School, and helpers for finishing off will be welcome to-day and to-morrow. New Farm School has work for helpers also on these days. Any other schools needing help should telephone 4BK to-day, and appeals will be sent out over the radio.

    Manpower Schools' Main Need
    STAFF shortages were the main reason for large classes in Brisbane schools, cold head teachers last night. The Teachers' Union president (Mr. A. K. Thomson) said that in the post-war plans for education the union envisaged a class of about 30 or 35. ‘At present there are many teachers in the Army and this shortage of staff has raised the number in a class considerably,' he said. 'There would be some classes of 60; there may even be some of 80. 'The union has been trying hard to get teachers released from the army, but education is not a protected industry.' ' Mr. Thomson added that teachers who had returned from overseas and had been boarded B class could still not return to their profession.
    35 To 40 Average
    Several metropolitan head masters said last night that they had some classes exceeding 35 pupils. On the average they ranged from 35 to 40. but some classes were as small as 25 while others reach 55. Mr. E. C. H. Warburton, of East Brisbane, said he had an average of 40 pupils in each class. Some classes far exceeded this number. Junior teachers had much smaller classes. Mr. R. Moore, of Buranda, said classes averaged 35 to 40 in his school, but he had classes up to 55. Mr. W. R. Harvey, of Junction Park School, said he had nearly 50 in some of his classes.

Five hundred women from all over Queensland gathered there for the garden party given by the South Coast Division of the Queensland Country Women's Association for those attending the C.W.A. conference. Some men students who usually walk through the Gardens on their way home hastily beat a retreat. Evidently the thought of facing so many women dismayed them. Girl students seemed undaunted. They strolled through the crowd, but were uncertain of what was happening. The crowd was so great that there had to be three sittings for the afternoon tea. While one lot ate the other two wandered round the green lawns, admiring the flowers, and -listened to the music of the drum and fife band of the Junction Park State School.

    School-the modern way can be lot of fun '
    by WINIFRED j MOORE
    THE modern view that enjoyment and education go hand in hand is the basis of Primary School education in Queensland. 'Learning through doing' is the motto. How it works out in practice I have had an opportunity of seeing when visiting some of the metropolitan schools that are typical of all others under the control of the Department. In a preliminary talk the Director of Education (Mr. L. D. Edwards) summarised his principles as follows. 'Our idea of education is not merely a matter of academic training, but of gaining experience through practical activity. In spirit it is— Learning Through Doing.' In my round of visits I discovered that the head teachers seek earnestly to hide their light under the proverbial bushel. They are averse from publicity lest their colleagues should get the idea that they imagine the methods or the tone of any one school is superior to the others. Though they show a private citizen willingly over their school, the 'iron curtain' comes down with a bang when there is any possibility of their work being discussed in print. Having overcome this reluctance to some degree, however, I found that educational activities combining doing with learning are as varied as the children who engage in them.
    ART, the natural expression of a child's thoughts and feelings about the world around, is given due emphasis ' in all the big schools. At Ascot school I saw a class of girls whose average age was 10, modelling little leaf-shaped dishes, small animal and bird figures, in clay. This is the next stage to plasticine, in which the smallest pupils of all can work. The art section of the older pupils, at Ascot and Junction Park schools, includes charming crayon drawings, striking pattern designs, water colours, and direct brush sketching from nature. At Junction Park, the biggest State school in- Queensland, with an- enrolment of 1300, an enthusiastic school committee had furnished a number of class rooms with framed colour prints of pictures by well-known Australian artists— Elioth Gruner, Robert Johnson, Hans Heysen, and others. This work is still, in progress, and since each of the 21 rooms costs about £15 for pictures, the magnitude of the undertaking is obvious. Among modern developments in one big school is a system of dramatising history and literature. At the time of my visit more than 100 boys and girls, between 8 and 9 years old, were enjoying a shadowgraph performance of 'The Pied Piper.' With the simplest equipment of a frosted glass screen, a lamp, and some home-made cut-outs, history and literature were made to come alive for the children. Since they do much of the character speaking for themselves, this, also improves their speech in general.
    … In several centres, including the four State schools of New Farm, Morningside, Junction Park, and Eagle Junction, the 'department has installed sound projectors for visual education. Through these the children are shown travelogues and documentary films, which introduce them to scenery, modes of life, and industrial conditions in their own and other lands.

    Gravel, long grass, and mud
    Many school grounds bad
    BY A STAFF REPORTER
    MANY of Brisbane's State school grounds alternate between bare, rocky gravel strips and patches of long, thick grass. In a tour of 20 schools in most suburbs yesterday I found that lack of upkeep, proper drain age, and grass cutting had left more than 75 per cent of school grounds unsatisfactory for children.
    The major faults were. —
    Lack of planning for grass growing, which left most areas merely bare patches, covered with gravel.
    Bad drainage, which made many lower playing fields sodden quagmires.
    Big areas near fences matted with long grass.
    The Queensland Council of School organisations president (Mr. F. A. Larkin) said last night that the new Education Minister (Mr. Devries) would be asked to supply caretakers or groundsmen to keep school grounds in order.
    SOME WELL KEPT
    Mr. Larkin said many school grounds were in terrible order, with children faced by either bare ground, long grass, or sodden ground. On the survey, I saw several schools with excellent grounds, plentiful shade trees, and well-kept playing fields. But these were the schools where school committees have been able to raise funds to do the work, or formed working bees of parents to cut grass, and Improve grounds. At other schools there were tennis courts unusable, because most of their area was covered by rough grass, patches of ground which sank under foot pressure, and grass up to 3ft. high.
    BEST AND WORST
    Schools visited were: Weller's Hill, Moorooka, Junction Park, Nundah, Virginia, Chermside, Newmarket, Indooroopilly. Graceville, Sherwood, East Brisbane, Zillmere, Oakleigh, Ironsides, Holland Park, Buranda, Greenslopes, Kangaroo Point, Kelvin Grove, and Yeronga. The worst was Zillmere, and the best two were Junc tion Park and Nundah. At Zillmere, which has 256 pupils, an open drain 5ft. wide by 3ft. deep runs straight across the main playing field. With long grass covering the field, and a foot of stagnant water in the drain, it was little wonder that the children spent their lunch hour up at the school, away from the field.
    GOOD JOB DONE
    On the other hand, there are a reasonable amount of grass, and excellent shade trees at Junction Park and Nundah. Here the children had space to play in, and pleasant conditions for their lunch. These good conditions are the result of school committee work. At Moorooka, the position of the playing field and lack of proper drainage make the field a quagmire for weeks after rain. Mr. Larkin said the Education Department had repeatedly refused to provide caretakers or groundsmen to cover one school or groups of schools. 'The condition of the grounds In some schools are terrible,' he said. 'In some they have only restricted areas of gravel to play on, and in others the grass is so long it could harbour snakes.

    PARDON IS LIKELY
    INFANTS toddled up to school yesterday despite the rain, but many 'old hands' shied away. Headmistress of Junction Park infants' school (Miss A. McKenna) said last night that she was 'amazed' at the large number who enrolled yesterday. But headmasters throughout Brisbane reported that about 12 per cent, of children did not resume yesterday — the official opening of the school year. One headmaster said he did not blame parents for keeping their children at home yesterday. 'If I had school children I do not think I should have sent them to school in such weather,' he said. So yesterday's 'A.W.L's' may count on a pardon.

    Children bottle-o's
    ONE thousand school children at Junction Park Starr School are in the 'bottle-o' business. Since Tuesday, they have collected more than 40.000 bottles in the area, to raise funds for their school library. Each day, a truck from the Queensland Bottle Co. calls at the school and carts away 180 cases of bottles. The children take the bottles to school in billy carts, sugar bags, lunch bags, and by hand. Yesterday more than 100 billy carts were 'parked' in the yard, ready for the boys to start their 'bottle-o' round after school.
    Good hunting
    The bottles are stacked several feet high in huge piles beneath the school. 'You would not believe that there were so many bottles in one district,' the headmaster (Mr. C. A. Irish) said yesterday.

    DEMONSTRATIONS of new teaching aids for infants' classes are to be given in rural cities and towns. The Education Director-General (Mr. Ed wards) said yesterday that these demonstrations were to be given to infants' teachers to prepare them for next year's new syllabus. Three classes were affected — preparatory and grades 1 and 2. Metropolitan infants' teachers already had been instructed by two of the State's expert teachers in new teaching methods, including use of cardboard and paper objects. They were sisters — Misses Agnes McKenna (Junction Park) and Elsie McKenna (Yeronga). Mr. Edwards said the department was trying to arrange similar demonstrations in country centres and towns.

    Breach to ignore school road patrol.
    MOTORISTS who ignored school safety patrols at crossings were breaking- the law, Senior Constable H. Paterson said yesterday. Senior Constable Paterson, a school lecturer, on road safety, helps to organise and instruct the patrols. Some motorists were disregarding the red warning flags with the words, 'Children Crossing,' on them, he said.
    Can halt driver
    School patrols using the flags had authority under the Traffic Act to call upon a motorist to stop at defined crossings. Motorists who did not stop were committing a breach. There were 48 school patrols in Brisbane, Redcliffe and the South Coast. Senior Constable Paterson and three other Queensland police lecturers are attending the interstate road safety lecturers' conference in Brisbane.
    Safer crossings
    The conference chairman (Inspector F. Palethorpe) said that in Queensland children only patrolled crossings which were not considered generally dangerous. Delegates yesterday inspected school patrols at Ascot and Coorparoo State schools, and Junction Park and Yeronga infants' schools.
    Pictured. MAGICIAN'S tricks being used by Mrs. Nan Hargreaves to demonstrate road safety rules to pupils of the Junction Park State School yesterday.
    The magic was a Road Safety Council experiment seeking to make school safety lessons more interesting. Mrs. Hargreaves, of Annerley, applied her magic to the safety rhyme 'Ten Little Cyclists.' As she re cited the words, Mrs. Hargreaves, a semiprofessional magician, produced large replicas of playing cards with cyclists painted on them. As each verse ended, she flicked her wrist, and the card dis appeared. Only one card remained in the end— the one with the cyclist who obeyed all the safety rules. Then, as the picture shows, Mrs. Hargreaves displayed a hollow model ol (!i2 City Hall, and produced from it a police man's helmet, miniature traffic lights, road signs, and flags printed with safely-first slogans.

    SEES NO DISADVANTAGE IN 5-YR-OLDS MISSING SCHOOL
    QUEENSLAND'S newly-appointed specialist ^ infant - teaching adviser, Miss Agnes McKenna, does not think five-year-olds refused, school admittance this year will be at a disadvantage. 'They will come to school in a year’s time,' she said. 'They will be older, less emotionally upset and more receptive. 'They will soon make up for their year's absence.' Miss McKenna, who re tired last December as head teacher of the Junction Park Infants' State School, has been a teacher in Queensland for 53 years. , She helped in the formulation of the State's new primary school syllabus, and has now been seconded for duty as a visiting infant specialist to State schools. Mothers help Miss McKenna said last night that mothers could help to interest their children in school activities at home by using simple methods laid down in the syllabus. These included:—
    Finger skill— to aid writing, at a later stage.
    Use of picture books, and repeated story telling— to aid reading.
    Use of blocks, cotton reels or household objects to teach counting — later rudimentary arithmetic.
    Tie knots, bows
    'Give the children finger skill exercises by teaching them to tie knots and bows and plait with wool.'
    Miss McKenna said. 'Let them scribble with paper and pencil, or make a peg; and wadding brush and give them a washing blue solution. 'It will give them the idea of writing if the mother writes the child's name and the child copies it.
    Begin reading
    'Cutting out pictures and pasting them on paper helps to develop skill with the hands. 'The next step is to associate writing with reading. Repeated reading of the same story by the parent will help children to recognise words. This is further helped by the identification of simple written words and objects such as the picture of a cat and the word 'cat''
