House Passes Bill Fixing r Low Salary Limit. 1 School Boards to Be Pro hibited From Employing Teachers at Less Than $35 per Month. By a vote of 134 to 38 the Snyder bill, ' fixing the minimum salary of public school teachers In the state at $35 per j month, passed the house of representa tives finally yesterday morning. No educational measure in recent years has attracted so much attention as this bill. While it will affect only a few boroughs and cities, as practically all these pay at least 535 per month now, It will have a far-reaching effect throughout the farming and rural com* 1 munitios. where as low as S2O per month Is received by school teachers. On the final vote the Luzerne repre . sentatlves divided as follows: Ayes— Hartman, Flanigau, Burke and ILol comb. Nay—Ross. Absent—Ferry. The latter favored the bill, but was not present on account of the death of his • child. The bill will now be messaged over to the higher branch of the legislature, where several senators will give it hearty • support, as there is a determination 2 there as In the house, to remove the - stigma from the state and to lift the rural communities to a higher educa tional level. Mr. Snyder, the author of the act. 1 said today that he will now go to work on the senate committee on education and endeavor to have the hill reported out as soon as possible. He has enlisted Senator (Quail In the bill's interest and will go after the senators as energeti cally and vigorously as he did the as - semblymen. Dr. N. C. SchaefTor, state superin tendent of public Instruction, who has been an earnest and persistent advocate of better salaries for teachers, expressed the greatest gratification when he heard of the bill's final passage In the house. ' I am hoping and praying that the bill will become a law," said Dr. SchaefTor, "and am very much pleased with its success thus far. I trust the senate will pass the bill without delay." FUNERALS.

The locals scored two baskets and secured a point on a free throw, or a total of 5. Pottsville ran up seven baskets or 14 points for the half. In the second half the visitors shot for and secured baskets at will, until about the last five minutes of play, when the locals took a spurt and secured 13 points.
