THE CHOICE OF A CAREER. Mr Henry C. Devine, who recently lectured at Newtown County School on the subject of "future careers for boys," writes us a long letter, most of which describes the aims and obipats of the Future Career Association." He says As the director of this Association,. which was founded to advise parents, guardians,, and school- masters in the selection of suitable careers for their sons and daughters, wards, and papils, I was much interested in your editorial comments in your issue of the 8th inpt. regarding the impor- tant question of boys' careers. The lecture which I recently had the pleasure of delivering at the County School. Newtown, was necessarily more of the nature of a bird's-eye view of the whole world of occupation than a detailed account of bow individual boys might enter upon those particular careers in which they were likely to attain, the greatest success. I am quite at one with you. ia your opinion that parents and teachers should consult together more (as they do in Germany), uegarding the fix- ing of the best vocations for boys. They know, or ought to know, more of the dis- positions, limitations, capacities, and circum- stances of their boys than anyone else. But whilst,, as I remarked, these four factors are the principal ones to be taken into considera- tion in choosing the future of a boy (whether he be tbe son (ôof a labourer or a duke)—a Central Intelligence Bureau regarding all forms of occu- pation at home and abroad is equally necessary, and this is what the Future Career Association professes to be."
