SHOULD LAY SCHOOL PLANS
NOW, SAYS SUPT. WILSON
Echolastic Year Begins Jtuly 1st and
New Taxes Must, be Voted Before
that Date. Many Schools Enjoying
State aid for most of the rural
schools of 'Laurens county has been
recetyed by the treasurer of the coun
ty, stated Superintendent of Educa
tion I. T. Wilson, yesterday. Of the
sixty school districts in the county
each hus qualined for state aid in oue
way- or the other with the exception
of six districts. Two of these districts
have no special tax and of. course 'ill
not be aided by the State. The fun
damenital basis for giving state aid i.
to give it to those districts which first
help themselves by voting a special
tax. Several other districts were not
able to receive aid tiecause the district
had only one crtficated teacher and
estough money from the general school
funds to run five motnhs.
Discussing Laurens county's appor
tionment of state aid, Mr. Wilson said
that during the past -year the schools
Qualified for and will receive from the
State approximately $15,000.0o. Seven
teen schools have qualified for term
-extension and have each received 4100.
So far twenty-ine schools have quall.
'fired unler the Rural Graded Act, four
undely the Equalizing Law, four tin
der the H1igh School Act, and five tin
der' the Building Act. These schools
are being aided very materially by the
State. If it were not for this aid
many schools in the county would
have to close the session at once. This
generous and Just attitude of the State
ought to be an incentive to larger ef
forts among the school districts of the
county. The recent legislature has
provided for more aid to 'worthy dis
tricts for the next session. rho ap
propriations are to be given as before
to those districts which are qualilled
by means of special taxes.
The new school laws will be dlis
cussed more fully at a later date, but.
there are two 'phases of. the law that
ought to be well grounded in the
minds of trustes and patrons at the
present -time. One of these is that
teachers with a first-grade certificate
are given prefernce in certain of the
laws giving state aid. A district with
an eight 11111 tax cannot get what it i4
entitled to unless each teacher in the
sc)hool has a first grade certificate.
Laurens county has failed to get sev
eral hundred dollars this year because
of this fact. The county would have
a .much better rating if each teacher
in the County held a first grade ccr
The second important matter t'o he
kept in mind by the different schools,
Ie sail, is tile fact that the school year
ends June the 30th and a now school
year begins July the '1st. 'Progressive
steps, therefore, for another year
ought * to be formulated and con
pleted before July tile first. I)istrict-s
contemplating voting additional taxes
must do so before the above (late if
the district is to get credit for it an
other year in the way of getting thie
added .tax and of <qualifying for state
aid. In fact trustees, according to the
scholastic year, ought to have things;
in readliness for teaching, if possible,
by tile fir'st of .July. Teachers ought
to be selected by that (late. Waiting

Man has often gone without food for days; but you know what
