The National Lumber Manufac
turing Association has instituted a
scheme which, if successful, will
add very much to the comfort and
welfare of the rural teachers. The
proposition is to build homes for
rursl teachers in the belief that if
teachers are provided with proper
homes, the country districts will be'
able to secure better teachers and
avoid the constant changes by
which the schools are. always in a
torn up condition.
" The governVent has' been inter-
ested in the association's scheme as
also has . the Rockefeller Founda
tion which has given $25,000 to
foster the work, with, more money
to come. :.
:-; The first result of the co-operation
between the lumbermen of the
country and the government itself,
is in the issue of a brochure entitled.
Teachers'. Cottages," Hby R. S.
Kellogg of Chicago, secretary of
the National Lumber Manufactur
ers Association, in co-operation
with the United States Bureau of
Education. This brochure is being
sent to every county superintend
ent of schools in America.
Arizona will be one of the first
states where the plan to build
homes for rural teachers will be
carried into effect, and a thoro in
vestigation of the conditions in th.it
state preceeded the announcement
of the social service plans of the
lumber manufacturers. '
Mr. Kellogg, author in part of
the brochurej urges that the-.teach-
ers' cottages, or as he calls them
teacherages, should be models of
sanitation, artistic, tho inexpensive,
and so constructed that they may
be not only homes, but real social
centers for the rural neighborhoods.
