MUST CONTINUE CAMPAIGNS EOR SCHOOLS-HINES State Superintendent Shows Need of Further Im provements. AGAINST 1-ROOM SCHOOL “Until Indiana hold* first * place In stead of seventeenth among the other states of the union for general efficiency in her schools there can be no let down on the campaign in the state for bet ter educational conditions,” declared L. Hines, state superintendent of public instruction, today. Mr. Hines has visited every county in the state, investigating the educational and sanitary conditions of the schools. "1 have fonnd,” he said, “that the at titude of the people toward school im provements is fine; they are ready to reco ;nize and listen to our plans of ad rancement.f The superintendent said that a good place to begin is in the rural schools, where the conditions in some localities are far from satisfactory. “The state Hoard of education is very much opposed to the building of any more one-room schools except whejy geo graphical conditions make It impossible to erect consolidated schools,” declared Mr. Hines. A report has been prepared by the elate school board showing that in UMV there were 5,553 one-room schools in the state, while on March I, 1920, there were 4.580, or a progress in school con solidation of 43 per cent. Mr. Hines said that in one of the wealthiest counties in the state there are sixty-five one-room schools of an inferior type. “A child in a $4 per capita school tax district is entitled to as good schooling as the child in the S4OO district,” Mr. Hines said, "and we Intend to use every resource in onr power to see that be gats what Is only his due.” WAXTS COMPriAOBt MEDICAL EXAMINATION. Compulsory medical Inspection should be substituted for permUsory Inspection as one of the first steps in the evolntton to better schools, declared Mr Hines. “In Putnam county a graduate health nurse examined 1,136 children in s"h<=ol and found the following afflictions: Mal nutrition, 46; anemia, 6; goitre, 4; nervous diseases. 8: cardiac diseases, 14; pulmonary tuberculosis, fl; pre-tubercu- Jar, IS; skin diseases, 34; rachitic type, 3; other orthopaedic, 23; defect of vision. 141; defect of hearing, 18; defect of teeth. 408; hyperthrophled tonsils C 77; adenoids, 216: defectives. 11; re ferred to physician, .329; referred to den tist. 294. Blame for many of the outstanding conditions were laid on the general pub lic and the school trustees by the super intendent. He said that when sufficient taxes are not levied to cover the salaries of ef ficient teachers and the purchasing of adequate supplies, the poor results can not be laid at the doors of the school au thorities. “I have visited several rural schools where there were no maps in the school; others where there were no dictionaries, and some which had no supplies at al! for the prinwry students. "Borne of (he buildings are of the most primitive type; one school was heated by a fireplace which had been In use for nearly fifty years. “In cold weather It was necessary for the pupils to huddle around this fire place in order to keep warm. "It is not uncommon to visit a school Kuppenheimer Air-O-Weaves —the sure answer to hot weather comfort and good looks is found in these best of comfort clothes.
