Mrs. I. B. De Villiers, '19D, of Wel-
lington, South Africa, contributes the
fourth article to a series of eight deal-
ing with life in South Africa.
To write a history of education in
South Africa is impossible with the
space at disposal. In order to tell
anything at all it is necessary to tell
about the past. The history of South
Africa presents many points of simi-
larity to that of the United States and
the history of its education is also
similar to that of this country.
As the people settled farther and,
farther north from the districts around
Cape Town the difficulties of provid-
ing a suitable education for the chil-
dren became greater. Then, as now,
the Dutch Reformed Church played a
great part in the education of the
people. The catechumens had to sub-
mit not only to a severe test as to
their Biblical and doctring know-
ledge but also as to their ability to
read and write. Still with the excep-
tion of a few favored towns the stand-
ard of education was low.
After 1806, when the English obtain-
ed final possession of the Cape, pub-
lic schools were opened in every vil-
lage and town, which could boast of
a justice court. As the medium of in-
struction was English which scarcely
one out of every hundred children
could understand, progress was slow.
With the growth and development
of the country the need for teachers
became more urgent. An appeal was
made by the Dutch Church to the
Presbyterian Church in Scotland which
met with immediate response. A num-
ber of teachers from Scotland went
to South Africa.
In 1873 one of the Scotch teachers,
Rev. Andrew Murray, was spending
his vacation at the seaside when a
friend gave him "The Life of Mary
Lyon" to read. He was so stirred
with the work that he wrote to Mount
Holyoke in Massachusetts, asking for
two volunteers to do for South African
girls what Mary Lyon had done for
Two women volunteered to begin
the work. At the outset their aim was
to train teachers. The great need of
the country was shown to every stu-
dent who entered the school, the Hug-
uenot Seminary at Wellington. Their
work was so successful that other
schools modeled on the same plan
The new teachers supplied to the
country, filled the need to some extent,
although it still exists. Slowly edu-
cation spread and colleges were built
which today compare favorably with
any in the world. Education is com-
pulsory in South Africa though the
different provinces do not all have the
During the last ten years there has
been especially rapid progress in uni-
versity education. Two of the univer-
sities, South African College and Vic-
toria College, have been granted char-
ters and will be allowed to expand in
what ever direction they may desire.
The rest of the colleges have been af-
filiated into a third university with the
proviso that should the number of stu-
dents and the work done warrant it
they too, will be recognized as a sepa-
rate university. Most of the students
in the Unitel States today are studying
dentistry, agriculture or theology,
courses for which little or no provi-
sion has been made in the schools of

"One sane New Year will do us
good," he told cafe keepers when they
presented their pitiful pleas that New
Year's eve falling on Sunday would
work havoc with their annual harvest.
The law permits the saloons to reopen
at 12:01 o'clock Monday mornings, but
they must close at 1 o'clock.,
The question now is how much can
a thirsty man or woman buy or con-

tled by numerous experimenters.
