Preuident of Board Would Includeuish
Schools in Approprisioo
"The Board of Zducation, betbsb which
theproposal bee bee Penditng, favog*
free textbooks for high school pupils,"
em Rev. John Van soba."1 ps1ident of
the beard, yesterday. commenting on the
disoussion of this subjeot at Saturday
night's meeting of the Federation of
CItisens' Asociations. "
"Tezt books used by the grad6d schools
are being supplied free, and it would be
well to extend this policy to include the
high schools. The question ;s definitely
before the board - and will be favorably
reported to tie District copmtan ieZs,
who in turn must address themselves to
Qpngress. The misioners' estimate.
will be prepared wfthin a week or two
and will then go to the Treasury.
"T'he proposal has been made that free
text books be provided for the poorer
pupils attending high school, but such a
distinction between the students would
be undemocratic. Undoubtedly many par
ents who now find the outlay for text
books overburdensome would keep their
children in high school longer in the
event that the books were provided by
the government.
Stephen Elliott Kramer, assistant su
perintendent of schools, suggested that,
should it be found Impractical to supply
free text books, an arrangement might
be made through which pupils,would be
permitted to buy them at wholesale
rates. This might be done if the school
authorities entered into a contract with
a third party for the volumes in quanti
ties and retailed them without profit to
the students,
This practice Is followed in supplying
the High School Cadet Corps with uni
"The shortage of paper has not result
ed In an increase in the price of text
books," said Mr. Kramer. "The publish
ers maintain a price list, from which
the purchasing agency of the schools gets
' discount of from 15 to 30 per cent on
books for the graded schools, It would
be feasible. perhaps, to arrange to give
high school pupils individually the bene
fit of a similar liscount."
