Teacherage Poposed
for School at Ysleia
The establishment of t cache rages
throughout the country Is being con
sidered more and more seriouslx in
El Paso district, according to Miss
Myra Winkler, County superintendent
of schools, who .-tells of tentative
plans suggested $ZJr the purpose of
providing a teachers home in Ysleta
similar to the one- at Canutillo.
The greatest difficulty in obtain, Re
and retaining the seven teachers for
the school at l sleta is the lack of
proper living conditions for them,
making it necessary for them to live
in El Paso and increase their expenses
by the mterurban fares. Miss Winkler
The plans for the home, though ten
tative as ft, provide that it be fur
nished rent free to the teachers who
would then have as their living ex
penses only food and a housekeeper
or servant to cook the meals and do
the housework
