THE WASHINGTON TIMES: SATURDAY; JCHSDE 28; 1919.
Accusations by Senator Nelson of
Minnesota that people here "are al
ways trying to work the Govern
ment" to promote projects for Wash
ington, did not deter the Senate in its
determination to restore to the sun
dry civil bill a House appropriation
of $250,000 to extend the park sys
tem of the National Capital by join
ing Bock Creek and Potomac Park.
Senator Lodge and Senator Shep
pard rallied to the defense of the
parkway project -when it appeared
that Mr. Nelson's apepal to the Sen
ate not to permit Washington realty
dealers to "put one over" on Con
gress would have a disastrous ef
fect. Debate Lasts An Hour.
Debate centered on the propect for
more than an hour, during- which the
United States Housing Corporation
came In for a severe drubbing: at the
i hands of Senator Nelson, who con
demned the Plaza Hotel project as
having: cost the Government millions
Senator Lodge strongly urged the
Requisition of land to link together
the two parkway systems, declaring
It "would be the greatest benefit to
the city and to the people of the city
that has ever been proposed." Senator
Bheppard, who is a member of the
pistrlct Committee, protested that
while Congress forever preaches about
making Washington the most beauti
ful city in the world, whenever some
fleflnlte plan for its beautiflcation
cornea up there are always Senators
who claim the District is trying to
defraud the Government.
Fifty-five per cent of the land in the
District already consists of parks,
Senator Gronna of North Dakota re
fninded the Senate.
Should Be More, Says Sheppard.
"I think that is a roost praiseworthy
Teature of the Capital City." replied
Senator Sheppard. "That percentage
pf land here and perhaps more should
consist of parks and playgrounds for
the American people."
Senator Lodge said he was entirely
familiar with all the objections raised
against the proposed parkway and
heartily approved of the plan. "It will
rescue the lower part of Hock Creek
from the condition it is now in," said
i senator ixage. xne completion of
this nark will make becpju rnnlil
.nd will be a great improvement to
that part of Georgetown and Wash
ington. A long list of "warnings" was put
Into the Record by Senator Kelson in
his fight against the project, drawing
attention to instances in the past
when Congress had been baited by
Pi strict people.
"We hear much about beautifying
Washington." said Senator Nelson,
and much about making it a model
city; But the people of Washington,
who are so anxious to have this city
beautified and enlarged, are also al
ways looking to immunity from taxa
tion. They are anxious to work the
Gorerznnent to the limit."
The Senate adopted a number of
Other amendments to the sundry civil
pill affecting District needs.
An amendment appropriating $10,
900 additional for the extension of the
p&thnouse at the Tidal Basin bath
ng beach, making a total of $20,000,
era approved without discussion.
Another amendment added $25,000
for Increased cost in park mainten
ance, making a total of $50,000.

school teachers remain practically at

sued by the National Educational As

"Economic laws apply to teachers
the same as to others," says Hugh S.

"Noteworthy progress has been
made in many cities, and what has
been accomplished is gratifying, but
the problem is not solved. Increases
of from 10 per cent to 20 per cent, or
even much more, are not sufficient to

as much. These comparisons are all
with kinds of work requiring much
less preparation than teaching, which,
it is conceded, should require at least
six years' of study and professional
preparation beyond tho eighth grade.
"It Is a public disgrace that in this,
