TRICE.) Tallahassee, May 11. The report liara ThnriulaT flight a tO " . . I the content of the decision of the the teaching forces of the schools. No wonaer supreme court in a liquor case decided habitual thirst. They had visions qi four quarts (or maybe four cases) speeding from some of the wet cities. But that smile faded on the following morning when the paper was received here and the real purport of the de cision was learned. - . There are some senators, so their noiipn triioa sav. who will be very care- ful to know what is on the calendar and what is going to come up oeiore they leave the chamber again. The job put over on the friends of large citrus canker appropriations, has been the talk of the town. Jt may not defeat the appropriation as original ly Intended, but it Is the Joke of the session, and those who are the brunt of it could not learn to smile for some time after it happened. J OR THE FOSTER-PARENTS It is strange that the genercus-hoarted Amer ican people, who poured out tneir riches so prodi gally in response to every patriotic, every char itable appeal and who accorded such enthusias tic and liberal support to every measure and to every group that helped win the war, should have neglected to properly encourage and re ward the services of one of the noblest profes sions in the field of human activities the pro fession that in lofty ideals, in unselfish prin ciples, in sacred responsibilities, stands side by side with the ministry of the Gospel itself, says the Literary Digest of May 10. We wish to bespeak, with whatever power and authority we may have and wish such words as may be granted to us, some measure of consid eration for the foster-fathers and mothers of our children the school-teachers of the United States of America. -"' There is no class of workers of which we de mand so much. We commit into their keeping the minds, the bodies, and the very souls of our children in the tender and formative years of their lives, and they, receiving these children, can indeed be said to hold in the hollow of their hands the future of America. We expect these devoted men and women to watch over and care for our sons and daughters as though they were their very own, to drill them in the arts and sciences, to train them for business and for citizenship, to instruct them in manners And in morals, to do for them those things which we would do had we the training and the leisure. No class has assumed so heavy, so trying a burden and a responsibility with puch willingness as these consecrated men and women. No class has performed their increasingly heavy tasks more devotedly, more conscientiously, and with less thought of self. No class served their coun try more whole-heartedly, more loyally, during the trying and tempestuous times of war, day by day pursuing their round of duty, day by day helping the young people," and through the chil dren the parents, to see the struggle in its true light, thus securing the co-operation of the com munity in every measure undertaken by the government to win the war. Truly tHey have made the nation their ever lasting debtor. Truly had they not done their work so well this republic would not outlast the span of a generation. What then have the teachers received at our hands in return? They have received little of honor and somewlitat less of pay. Other classes have prospered; other classes through powerful organizations have secured generous wages. The teachers have no spokesman, however, to demand even the simple justice of a living wage, so to them we give their petty pittance, so meagre, so pitifully inadequate, that it places a burning brand of shame and disgrace upon this nation. The men and women who are making the Americans of tomorrow are being treated. with less consideration than the janitors who sweep out the buildings in which they are employed; they are earning on the average, less than the wages given to the scrubwomen employed in the public buildings of the United States govern ment. Normal-school graduates receive less sal ary than street sweepers ; high-school principals and superintendents. less than section foremen; country school teachers less for instructing the farmer's children than he pays his hired man to feed his hogs. In a certain town in Illinois, for instance, the average wages fo fifteen miners for one month was $217, while the average monthly salary of fifteen school teachers in the same town was $55. In another town a miner, who, by the way, was an enemy alien, drew more than $2,700 last year, while the salary of the high-school principal in thesametown was $765. We welcome with all our hearts the long-belated recognition' that is being given to the man who works with his hands. We believe that this sme orkingman will be the first to join with us in asking better pay for those who teach his children. No wonder there are fifty thousand vacancies in the ranks are being filled with weak men andday. ffund - . I.... ... . ja fleAn a r with immature women who merely use tne pro fession as a stepping-stone to something better. No wonder there are thirty thousand teachers in the United States who have had no schooling be yond the eighth grammar grade. Small won der, indeed, that seven million of our school children are being trained . by teachers, mere boys and girls themselves, who have had no pro fessional education whatever. 1 When we consider that the 740,000 teachers of America are paid an average salary of $630 a year; when, moreover, we consider the fact that living costs have actually advanced 103 per cent since the beginning of the war, thereby cutting the buying power of these insignificant salaries in half we can easily determine that only a fool or a martyr would choose teaching as a profes sion, or would long remain in it unless these terrible conditions were swiftly remedied. What a crime is this! What an indictment! What an unpardonable sin at the doors of an enlightened people who now find themselves at the head and forefront of the democracies of "the world I How can we better prepare for the great undertakings of reconstruction than by setting ourselves immediately to remedying this perilous condition. In these crying and chaotic times when the world is beset by unrest, by anarchy, by revolution, by the devil's blood of appalling evils that follow in the train of war, we must make sure that the foundations of our republic are set on a rock that it may stand against the flood. - The peace and security of the world of the fu ture will be in the safe keeping of' the genera tion now in our schools. These boys and girls must " tion. Their hands must minister to the wounds of the nations. Their minds must meet and solve the difficult and crucial problems that will be their inheritance. -Their hearts must be so COTTAGE HILL g B BHBBBBB'B SB8BBB B 1!

S3 Cents Box THE CRYSTAL 100 per cent American instructors to drive home the vital lesons that these times hold. Never has the future of the nation been so clearly committed into yie hands of the teachers. And yet thou sands of men and women of ability who would prefer to teach are reluctantly leaving their chosen calling, forced by the hard necessities of their very existence. The teachers ask no largess at the hands, of fortune. They enter their profession for service, not riches. But they invest years and money in preparation for their life-work and the knowledge they gain is shared with others who themselves use it to their own profit. Teachers, then, by every right and in all justice expect a return that will permit them and their dependents to live decently and in comfort. In every community there are people of fore sight, of vision, broad-minded men and thought ful women who will seenay, perhaps have long since seen the critical and compelling import ance of this problem. We urge them to compare the salaries of their teachers with the wages of those who are doing work of equal value. There will be a challenge in the facts that will stir the community to action. Let each community invest in schools that it may thereby invest in a trained manhood and womanhood that can play their part in the great period of rebuilding and reconstruction that lies before us. Let each community set for its goal, as far as is practicable, a minimum wage of at least $1,000 a year for the teachers of America. This would cost the nation perhaps as much as we spent so gloriously in one week on the great war. We are riot pleading merely for the welfare of some single profession; we are not pleading for a special class; we are pleading for America: for her larger, her brighter, her, richer future, for the fulfilment of her glorious promise. We are pleading for a coming race of men and women who shall be qualified to make complete the work of. our forefathers who founded this nation and dedicated it to liberty, and who will bring to full fruition the new victories that we have won in freedom's cause. .We are pleading for a wider teaching of the principles, the purposes, and the ideals of this nation that all men shall know her meaning ad shall have equal access to her op portunities ; that the light of Americanism will so shine that it will flood-every home, every heart, JjMrjr great land. These ideal days and luring night are the inspiration for many picnics on the lake shores near the capital. If you should arrive here to see a mem ber of the law-making body and no one can tell you where he is, just ask: "Where is the nicnic being had today."
