In regard to the school legisla

intendent E. 8. Black states that he
feels that the schools of the state

for the coming biennium. Mr.
Black’s reason tor this statement
is based on the supplementary ap

including $1,400,000 for equaliza
tion deficiency and that the per
cent of revenue from the general
revenue fund for the benefit of
schols was raised from .40 to 52.25
percent. Mr. Black also dates that
