of schoolboys taking part-time jobs solely to increase their pocket-money has. been expressed by Brother J. B. O'Keeffe, headmaster of St. Joseph's College, Trent Vale, Stoke-on-Trent.

Speaking at the annual prizegiving last week, Brother Joseph said when this happened. school and homework inevitably suffered. -There is often a lowering of standards in dress and conduct", he added. "The boy becomes independent at too early an age, parental control becomes more difficult and there is a relaxing of home discipline."
