Efforts J to aid education in the South arr sum- > niarizcd in tint sixth installment to- ; night of tiie rcjiort of the General Hdu- , cation Board, founded by John !">. : tiie report bii.vj, "that adequate de- i velopment could not take place until ' the people's resources were enlarged. ! "These conditions were not primarily due to lack of interest in popular edu cation," the report continues. "They were mainly tiie result of rural pov erty. While the average annual earn ings of individuals engaged in amrl- > 'culture in Iowa were upward of $1,000,! the average earnings of those similar- | ! ly engaged in some Southern States | [was as low as $150. The great hulk | of the people of the Southern States ; j are simply not earning enough to pro vide proper homes anil to support good education." Tiie Southern farmers suffered pri marily from lack of money, the report ? says. He also lacked scientific knowl- ! edge of farming, and the hoard, pro ceeding on the theory that if he could . !><? helped in this direction, he would ; | gladly support better schools. The ; | board says that this program could not ' ! be carried out by the Federal govern- j [ inent. because, while it was taking I measures to kill the bollweevll, it could i j not appropriate money for strictly cdu- j cational purposes. The board decided j to work In conjunction with the gov- ? ! eminent. I "The co-operation of tiie General j Education Hoard," the report continued, j "brought about an immedia'te and j rapid expansion of the demonstration i movement in every direction dealing | with a rapidly increasing number ??f j activities, and touched more people i "In 1900, 545 farms were reached; a year later, 2,834: in 1908, something | more than 14,000; in 1910. 0Ct,622; in 1912, 100.021. Twenty-five thousand adults were at the last named date receiving instruction In Texas, more than 15,000 in Oklahoma, more than 15,000 in Arkansas, 10,500 In Alabama, 0,190 In Mississippi. "The initial appropriation of the board In 1905 was 17,000. At that time the government was devoting $10,000 to demonstrations against the boll I weevil. The board appropriated $.10,000 j t!ie next year, $70,500 two years later, j$;a0,000 in 1911 and $252,000 In 1913. "These sums were' unevenly dis tributed: in 190S-09 $4,000 was spent j in Florida and $15,000 in Virginia: the next year $19,000 In Virginia and $19,000 | In Georgia; in 1911-12 $23,000 in South Carolina and $25,000 In North Carolina." Summarizing the total cost of the | Southern work up-to-date, the reports i says the government appropriated $1. 922,300 and the General Education Hoard $925,750, while $1,009,405 was ob I tained from other sources. The board 1 says its policy has been vindicated by the fact that the Southern people them selves in less than a decade were pay ing almost 50 per cent of the total an nual expenditure, approaching $1,200, 000. "Fortunately," the report concludes, "the value of demonstration has been so clear that the Federal government ?will'now take over and extend purely educational farm demonstrations; suc cess has dissipated the constitutional scruple that for the past ten years has | restricted governmental activities in [this direction to plague-Infested i States."
