A rising vote of thanks was given
- Prof. Fox on his splendid address on
• the public schools:
Prof. Fox**. Addrt's
Prof. Fox spoke as follows:
"The activities of the American
school systems are conditioned upon
r the collection and disbursement of
, public funds; the public school is
, borne upon the shoulders of the tax
, payer. From this intimate relatlon
r ship between taxes and education it
. follows that financial, a well as edu
cational problems, must be considered
, by the school authorities. Indeed
f! every educational problem is, on com
plete analysis, a financial problem, and
. every financial problem pertaining to
; 1 the schools an educational problem
.(The members of the Board of Educa
. tion must decide how much money is
. 1 to be spent for the operation and main-|
I j tenance of schools and for improve
j merits in the school plant; they must
J secure, through taxation or by other
I 1 methods, the funds needed for school
. j purposes. In directing expenditures.
J and in collecting and managing school
.(funds, they should avoid waste and
! should seek to obtain for each dollar
.j paid out’ the largest possible educa
, tional return.
“A county’s resources determine
what it is able to spend for school
purposes; its educational needs deter
mine what it should spend. The
amount spent, considered in relation to
resources, reflects the community's
generosity the value its citi
z* ns place on public education.
“in the last four years the cost of
! the average commodity has increased
j over 100 percent. This means nearly
I everything purchased by the Board of
j Education during the last year has
cost twice as much as the same article
i cost in 1916. Repairs such as gl tss.
lumber, paint, fuc’ and stove supplies.
| have more than doubled. The cost of
ilabor has increased accordingly.
Teachers’ Sularj Increase-.
‘‘Teachers* salaries in Anne Arundel
j county, which amount to 65 percent >f
1 ail the Board's expenditures have been
'increased about f>o percent. The a'.-r
j age salary paid in 1915 was $452.00.
; while the average salary paid in 1919
j was $653.00. Tile per capita cost of
i education in the same period has ad
vanced but 42 percent.
Materials Vnd Labor Soar
"In brief, supplies, materials and
‘labor huv increased 100 percent;
i teachers’ salarh's have been increased
jSO percent. Janitors have been pro
vided for rural schools, whore hereto
fore the teacher has acted as janitor
New Buildings
New buildings have been erected in
i stead of repairing ramshackle affairs;
school attendance has been increased
25 percent, while the total per cap'ta
(tost of education has increased but 42
percent. The Board has accomplished
this by practicing strict economy. It
is doubtful if any other business in the
‘ county from the management of a farm
1 to the running of a bank has been con
■ ducted with-a less increase during the
same period.
School Next To Home
"Next to the home, the school should
be a place of comfort and beauty,
• cleanly, sanitary, well heated, perfeet-
I ly lighted—a place in which the chi 1-
! dren and the entire school community
l should take pride, and which should
stand forth as a true index of the
i social, civic, and even moral standards
i of the community.
Budget Of Expenditures
"The Board of Education of Anne
j Arundel county several years ago map
| ped out a building program for the
county. The idea was to take care of
j the school needs of the county as
rapidly as funds would permit. There
are now a number of modern school
houses in the county. The following
; list will give some idea of what has
* already been done:

Annapolis, Md.
f "Tracey's La tiling is now under
construction, it will be ready for use
by September lsN 1920. This school is
intended a** a rural h*gh school. There
; is but one high school in the county,
j:hat is Incited at Annapolis and in
!accessible to children in the lower part
of the county. :•* are many bright
| country girls in that section who are
( anxious to become tea, hers They have
f been denied the'advantage of a high
I school education'in the past. This new
school will afford the coveted oppor
tunity and no doubt will be the means
of preparing many rural minded
teachers tor our schools.
Schools In \nnex
"The City of Baltimore by the an
nexation a t took over seven of our
school buildings! There is an unpaid
bonded indebted less of $72,000 still
on the county fcj the construction of
these schools. $ - wrong to charge
;he school maintenance fund with tin
care of such bojids. nevertheless, this
is exactly what- the law* does. Each
ear until these loads are paid part
of the f inds levied for school pur
poses in Anne rondel county must
be set esi.ie to pay for school build
ings now located within the bounds
of Baltimore City.
Consolidated Schools
"Linthicum Heights. Glen Burnie
| and Severna Bark are now used as
! consolidated schools. The county
made a splendid investment when
these schools were built. F*r exam-!
pie, the contract price of Linthicum 1
Heights school furniture or
lot was less ;h:e*i SIO,OOO. Recent es-j
imates show tli.itt this building would:
now cost $30.0(*0. An increase of over
200 percent. 'k“c , nt estimates on the
Germantown ami West Annapolis
schools show at* increase of 50 per-;
cent, in the la.it six months. This
tremendous increase in the cose ofj
construction has caused the Board of
tremendous increase in the cost of
Education to hesitate to recommend
further expenditure.-: "* this time.
"In during the past four
vears 6S new rocans of the most mod
ern type have ’been added ito our!
school facilities, a: a cost of approx
imately $135.0004)0. The unusual in

State Game Warden E. Lee ‘
Compte has fo-warded a letter to •
each district game warden in Mary-1
land. The depn.y game wardens are (
ompeled to mate weekly reports to
ind those recel ed from January 19
o 24 show that -i great many of them
have been very, active in covering
heir territory loating quail, and put
ting out few! f t which is very
essential at this thin and unless
the public co-operates with this de
partment in "Feeding the Birds," due
to the unprecedented spell of snow
and sleet, the birds of this State will
suffer seriously*.
The State Game Warden's letter
“As you are aware, we have been
using our best efforts to have the pub
lic "Feed the Birds.” especially lob
white quail. It,i> requested that you
get in touch reliable farmers
hroughout your district either by
'phone or postal cards, requesting
them to try and locate covies of birds
and feed same, and if they do not
wish to do this gratis, tell them we
will pay for the'feed used.
"You undoubtedly know there is a
heavy sleet covering the earth
throughout the State, which is very
unusual to continue as long as it has
this season. The proper way to go
about feeding the birds, is. to locate j
-he birds, take a spade and clean off j
the earth and -put out some feed j
(most any kind of grajn will answer j
the purpose), then each day return!
to that place *and see if the bii^ds!
have fed oif same.
"A great many farmers do not take i
an interest in the sport of hunting,
and for thi§ reason, would possibly
not grant your request, although they
should be interested, as the quail are
of more advantage to agricultural in
terests than a. v specie of birds we
have in our St- e.
"If you can in touch with the !
sportsmen throughout your District,
and request to feed the birds,
stating if they 1 do not care to feed
them gratis.. e will pay for what
ever feed they purchase within a rea
sonable amount.”

I Salary Increase For Clergy
Bishop Murray, in his address fast
night. touched upon many current
problems and aroused enthusiasm by
outlining, in general terms, plans by
which material increases are to be
made in the salaries of clergymen de
pending in part upon missionary
funds. The Bishop intinured that a
minimum salary would be fixed well
above present figures, declaring that
this was made possible by the splen
did response of the diocese to the na
tion-wide appeii.
“The time is not here and never will
come," he declared, "when the clergy
will sacrifice any ideal of service for
material considerations, but our people
must realize that the clergyman earns
and is entitled to remuneration in ac
cord with service rendered, just as is
any other man."
The Bishop intimated that the canon
(it re-organization for the diocese,
which was presented today, will pro
vide a small executive council rather
than tiie present boards and explained
the greater efficiency possible under
| this centralized form of government,
i The Rev. Dr. Philip Cook, who is
i host to the convention for the first
time, cordially welcomed fellow
elergvmen and proffered entertainment
for all corners among the families of
the parish. Luncheon will be served
by the ladies of the parish both days of
the gathering.
Madge Kennedy’s newest Goldwyn
picture. "Strictly Confidential'' which
comes to the Republic theatre tonight,
tells the story of a provincial English
actress who marries a Lord, whose
servants are all relatives of hers
j Early in the story, she come to the
Lord's castle, an orphan; but the
rigid decorum of the servants make
life impossible for her. She runs away,
; goes back to the stage ami makes an
; instantaneous hit. During this phase
I of her career, she meets an artist and
j falls in love with him. She does not
: know that he is the Lord Bantock from
whose castle she escaped not very long
since. However, they were married
and return to his ancestral home to
live. Here the new Lady Bantock finds
i herself hedger about by her relatives,
who are now her servants. Innumer
able humorous complications result
; from the old butler's attempts to curb
the happy spirit fo his neice, now his
• mi-dre- • The old fellow believes
; flrmlyin certain family traditions,
which his neice cannot conform to.
Moreover, her position is made more
, difficult by her decision not to disclose
her family relations fo her husband.
However, when she can no longer
| bear the burden of silence and con
stant disciplining from her uncle, the
butler, she confessed to her husband,
and discovers that life at the castle is
henceforth to be all joy and sunshine
IN U. S. DURING 1919
Since the signing of the armistice
| there has teen a constantly increas
! ing number of suicides everywhere.
I according to a report issued by the
Save-a-Life League. In Germany.
Russia. Syria and other foreign coun
tries, where the numl er has been
very large, the cause is attributed to
despair because of miserable living
I conditions brought about by the war
The report tabulates 5,121 cases of
| suicide in the United States during
1919. Of the professions lawyers
led the list with forty-three, of whom
| twelve were judges; thirty-six vie
ims were physicians, twenty-eight
teachers and eleven clergymen. The
ist. included twenty presidents of
'urge business concerns and fifty
prominent club members, millionaires
j ind wealthy society women. Unhap
| py marital relations were responsible
i for 350 tragedies.
j Men outnumbered women, 2,987 to
' 1,657, but of the child suicides 252
! were girls and 225 boys. Newspaper
editors appeared to be immune.
