State, making $80 for each count".
Only twelve schools in eac'i county
may avail themselves of the privileges
of the aot during any one year. The
law went into operation this year, and
a large number of free school libraries
have been established under Its pro
The report recommends that the
time be extended when a dlstric'. may
