under the law and provided the ap
propiriation is made, but the money
will not be available until June. This
Is due to two reasons: First, because
f taxes being almost entirely deferred.
Secondly, because an application for
equalizing aid cannot be made until
the school has run for a period of
seven nonths. This necessarily will
tucan the applications cannot be for
warded to Columbia until sometime in
Mauy. Teachers, working in a district
whicz does not hope to quality for
state aid, if district funds have been
spent, must await until the next schol
astic year to get pay from the county
treasurer. This does not mean that
teachers will not be paid, but It does
nean that the money must be borrowed
>r some method other than that of pay
mient by the treasurer. This office
Eloes not care to run the school dis
tricts in debt. Upon this basis it does
not care to approve claims when there
is no money in the treasurer's office
with which to pay them. Therefore,
the second question may have been
ianswered bluntly, but possibly clearly.
In the last place, why this trouble
each year regarding the salaries of
teachers? One reason is the fact that
taxes have been ipald rather slowly.
This, however, is a minor reason. The
real cause is the fact that, a law guar
antees a certain salary for a certain
terni. Trustees act upon this law.
Teaoliers are employed for a term of
seven m11onths at a specifled salary. The
carrying out of this contract is con
tingent upon the legislature making
the appropriation. This appropriation,
if made, is given many months after
contract has been made by trustees.
The renedy lies cither in having the
latw and appropriation go hand in hand
or having trustees to eiiploy teachers
for a -term and at a salary in harmony
with district funds, with the provision
that the term sliall be seven months if
the appropriation is made.
