There will be big doings at the Hobart
school Monday in case the demands of the
pupils for shorter hours are not granted.
Several young agitators have conceived
the idea it would be great fun to have the
working hours shortened and have circu
lated*'a petition among the school chil
dren requesting the authorities to cut oft
an hour of the da.'s work, so the children
will have more tame for amusement.
The teachers were inclined to laugh at
the propositi, but the students are
greatly in earnest and insist that unless
their demands are granted by Monday
morning there will not be one bright and
smiling face on the benches of the institu
tion of learning.
