Ibis will result in a more ac- Surate apportionment of school funds. Teachers' Salaries Raised .The status ot the teacher in Ark- 'ansas was - improved over the conditions of previio'us years. The increased funds have enabled salaries to be raised in many districts. In other districts the increased funds have been used to retire outstanding warrants, thus restoring the district either to a cash basis or closer to such a basis. Greater financial security for the teachers will result from enactment of the teacher retirement law by the rectnt general assembly. Through a system of teacher contributions and matching by the state, retirement on art c j asseSi an annuity at 60 or thereaher by the ^ t(la t ^ fold to $218,774.68. This substantial increase in funds has enabled widespread extension in vocational education to be made. Preliminary figures indicate that the number of home economic centers has been increased from 38 to 104 and the enrollment from 5,091 to 8,888. As these departments continue there will be a steady growth in enrollment for the next year or two. The number of vocational agricultuie departments for white schools has increased from 103 to 147, and for negro schools from 50 to 62. No data are available on enrollment figures.' or the current year. In the trade and industrial work in 1936-37, there were 54 centers with an enrollment of 4,330 in trade vocational work and 9,704 in industrial teachers will be possible. Already hundreds of the in-service teachers are affiliated with the system in addition to all new teachers who automatically become members of the system. Improved training of teachers is noticable in the records of the certification division of the Department of Education. There is a trend toward the certification of teachers on a state rather than a county basis. Collection of fees for teachers' certificates for 1937 increased approximately ._ conservative estimate is that the program for the current year will expand approximately 15 per cent over last year. Another expansion in the service of) the Deparemtn of Education is that of civilian vocational rehibilitation. This expanded program has been made possible through increased federal and state funds. The service for vocational training of persons who have a major physical disability and who need to learn a trade or vocation suitable for them, has placed a much larger number of disabled persons in training White Paper in South, Possibility Heavy Imports Continue, But Pine Would Reduce Need of Them cciieb IUL A;JOI uiv.ictu>«« nt/^.w.-**...«..-.., £ e r o j aisaoieo. persons in training 15 per cent ever the collections for i j ust as ra pjdiy as the crippled per- 193fi_ thus indicating an increase in' „,,_ „_„ u» c ,,i-vs>vrvl miiripri in thp 1936, thus indicating an increase in state -certification.

All in all, the year of 1337 was characterized by a general improvement of schools and school conditions., It is to be hoped that such progress j will continue to be made in the schools: of the stae. The citizens of Arkansas j should not become satisfied with their i schools until a complete school pro-, gram is available to every child and, until teachers are established on a | basis which will assure their economic: security, thus insuring an improved teaching personnel. \ have ha dthe courage to solve other pressing problems of government such' as highway development.

"Telegram fob you, Miss Linda," he said, beaming broadly. The message read simply, "Be sure to see that the Duchess behaves herself. Barry." Old Miranda had one, too. She read it aloud. "Don't forget the Christmas tree. And how about chestnuts for stuffing?" Then she picked up the morning paper. As she scanned the headlines, he;- fingers tightened on the eheet. Linda, standing just behind her, shamelessly read the lines over her shoulder: CAPTAIN TRENT THOUGHT FORCED DOWN. RADIO SILENT As Linda stood there, the back i f her hand tight against her quiv- I «.-ing lips, the old lady looked up, ! acd for a moment their glancuj cl in" together in mute question, j Th'.'H Mrs. Trent said briskly, I • You may bring the cull'ee, Jerler- j/Hl." An instant later she added more lewdly, "Von sec, my dear Mi.s.» Bewton, I have tecomo somewhat, inured to this k.nd of cnsi.s. My husband v. cut thiuuaii the Span-: Jsh-Arnencuii V.'ar: my son, Barry's fatliL-r. v. a.j in Fiance. As for, Cqptain Treu', 1^ has been re-' ported 1'jjt mo. 1 ! ur.ii.-s than I can recall." A LL that day anu the next reports continued to come in — conflictin.'!, contusing, agom/.ing. It was not until tho inoiiung ot the thud day that the airport called with something definite. Linda answered the telephone. When .sKe .vagyested .summoning Mrs. Trent, the man at the other end of tlie line broke in hastily: "Wait! You said' you were Mrs. Trent's companion, didn't you? Well, why don't we give- you the BiqpKage and let you use your own judgment about the best way to tell her?" When tho man had told her what he had to tell, Linda hung up the receiver as carefully as if it had been made of fragile glass. Sooner or later, old Miranda had said, a last time comes to the best of them. Slowly she made her way upstairs and entered the old woman's room. Then, leaning against the closed door, her lace papei white, icr nails digging into her palms, she delivered her message parrot- wise, like a stiff-lipped, frightened child reciting a verse: "The airport called . . . They wanted me to' tell you . . . they've found his plane — in the surf—somewhere on the coast of Central America , . . They said •tell you they—had not given up hope." Ah, indeed!" said old Miranda slowly after a moment. Perhaps she was remembering other scenes in which she, herself, had said to other waiting women, "But they haven't given up hope yet." For a moment she sat silent, her eyes closed; then she said, "You may tell George I shall not want the car this afternoon , . . And do go out for some fresh air, Miss Benton. You are looking rather pale. I—think I shall go to my room." * * * L INDA must have walked miles that afternoon, but she was not conscious of being tired — only numb, and somehow apart in a gray, emp'.y, dead world of her own. . . . The dead do not weep. Linda did not. When she dragged herself home through the little park, the Christmas tree was gayly lighted — all .silver and blue. Candles were glowing in the- windows, and people were hurrying along with brightly wrapped parcels, laughing and calling out gay greetings to one another. At the edge of the park she met the little dark man with the puckered, wistful srnile who had spoken to her that day j when she had paused outside the church to sing with the choir the Christmas carols they were rehearsing. He called, "Merry Christmas, Miss Benton!" And she heard her own voice answering, "Merty Christmas!" Those few hours alone in her ! room that afternoon were old Mii randa's one concession to the- I frailty of the ilesh. She came down to dinner, a little haggard, but 1 very quiet. | Later radio reports only con'• finned the news they had had. j The wrecked plane was un- WASHINGTON.-(/P)—Prixhiclion in .he South of wood pulp suitable for while paper, the Tariff Commission told Congress Sunday, might lead to n jreiit reduction in newsprint nml sul- ;>hile pulp imports. Despite large domestic production, the commission's annual report jaiid, the United States consumed far more paper in 1936 than it produced. Approximately 5.500,00 tons ot wood pulp, or one-fifth the world's total output, was produced here lust year, the report showed, yel 2,250,000 additional tons of wood pulp and 2,750,000 tons of newsprint were imported. Sulphite pulp comprised the hulk of United Suites' pulp exports but amounted to less Hum four per cent of the domestic production. "The sitiiiition with regard to white papers may l>e completely chnnjjc<l," the report said, "if n Inrfic production of pulp suitable for making such papers develop in the South.

Several experienced flyers were quoted as saying that it was impossible that the pilot could have survived such a beating. And there was no apparent possibility of his having been picked up. Old Miranda heard it all with dry eyes; Linda with that numbed passivity that had held her since the airport had called this morning. Notes of sympathy, even flowers, had been pouring in all day, and callers had begun to come. At tho first arrival Linda rose and would have left tho room, but Mrs. Trent said swiftly, "Please do not go, Miss Benton. I may want you." So Linda sat down again. * * » growitiK stands of Southern pine come to 1* used in this way, n Rreal reduction in the imports of sulphite pulp nml of newsprint p;ipcr iraty occur."

The Trent women, Linda gathered, did not permit others the liberty of being sorry for them, Through it all, Linda was conscious of furtive glances cast in her own direction. From her experience on the ice the other day, she had gathered that rumor-, about Barry and herself hail aveled swiftly. So people were sorry for her. Well, if the Trent women did not welcome pity, neither did Gco/Try Ik'nton'.,- daughter. , , . Old Miranda seemed aware of something riioro than casual in the glances casi at the slim fair givi who sat with .-.uch quiet dignity ia her tall, high-backed chair. When one of the women turned and said to Linda, "This news about Captain Trent must be a great shock to you, too, Miss Benton," the old Lilly's shrewd eyes swept the- 1'ivtTtly listening faces about her with atientive curiosity. And when Linda turned grave, steady young eyes upon her questioner, lifted her head, and answered briefly and quietly in her clear, lovely voice that naturally it must be a great .shock to all who knew Captain Trent, Miranda Trent's eyes uginn traveled over the listening faces, with a look that almost biid, "All right! Now what do you make of that?" At last ''icy M went. Trent had ju.-,t picked up her cntie and said a hule wearily that it was bedtirnt. when the telephone suddenly shrilled.
