New Educational Scheme.—The Marist Brothers have hit on an eco nomical method of running a boarding school in the Belgian Congo. Unable to establish a school large enough to hold all the students that were flock ing to them, they established a vil lage of separate huts. Each father who sends his sons to the Marist school must build a hut for them. Education is given free by the Broth ers but the students are required to support themselves. During their recreation time they fish or shoot to provide themselves with the neces saries of life. The Brothers find the result of this home and college life most satisfactory.
