Illiteracy Charges False, ArrnrHlncr til Infnrmntlnn irlvpn nut by the state bureau of Tabor statistics, f the ranking or Missouri as thirty fourth among all states In ability of its inhabitants to read or write, a ranking recently included in articles published by an Eastern philanthropic .Institution, is far from correct. The information upon which this false ranking was established was taken, the bureau officials be! love, from a report on literacy tests of only native born white inhabitants of native born parentage. The bureau has recently finished an extensive report on the problem of illiteracy in the state, prepared for the 1021 Missouri lied Book. This report shows that in general illiteracy, including all inhabitants ten years of age and over, twenty-seven states rank lower than Missouri, inner fig ures given in the report show that Missouri ranks thirteenth among alt states for total expenditures on public schools being excelled In this respect by New York, Iowa, ualliorota, Illi nois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Mich igan, Minnesota, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Texas.
