D.S. Mackenzie, deputy minister of Education, stated today that one third as 
many shcool districts had been erected since the organization of the province 
of Alberta as were in existence at the time of organization in the area 
included in the province of Alberta. This means that at least 3600 children 
of school age have been added to the population of the province and may be 
regarded as an undeniable evidence of the development of our rural districts. 
The increase does not include towns or villages.
