advantages except after hours of
daily employment are being offered
evening courses by the city school
Professor C. E. Zorger, supervisor
of special activities. Is organizing
the classes this year and arranging

plans for these classes which will
open to-morrow evening:
"Added opportunities are offered
this year for those working In a rut
and whose chances for advancement
In their particular line of work Is
limited for want of a little training
In English, mathematics, mechanical
drawing. These classes will be or
ganised primarily for the man or
woman now employed who wishes
to advance in their own chosen field,
whether In the office, shop or home.
"The course In commercial train
ing offers training in bookkeeping
and business arithmetic besides the
regular classes In business English,
shorthand and typewriting. It is
also hoped to organize a course In
shop training which will offer shop
arlthmetlo, shop sketching, mechan
ical drawing, and other related

who wish to learn English will be
opened In the Harris Park School
and at Central High School. Classes
will be arranged to suit the needs
of those who can speak English and
wish to learn to read and write as
well as for those who wish to learn
to speak the language better.
"In Central High School will be
enrolled all those people who went
to any of the various classes in com
mercial and shop courses. Those
who would study other branches of
learning if it were offered will also
be registered for any classes they
might want to enter and such classes

ities allow.
"All these classes are free to the 'Y

16 years of age, not in attendance
at any day school, and who can show
satisfactory evidence that they can
carry on the s'udles they desire. The
regular sessions of the school will
