BV WILLIS THORNTON NKA Service Rlaff Corrtspondenl WASHINGTON, Feb. 1.—There ji-fl weren't any textbooks. There wasn't any money lo buy textbooks Something had to be done. So a New Jersey school teacher set herself to copying out. evenings in long-hand, essential chapters, tables and seciions of her own book, so that her pupils might have something to study. Her letter to the National Edu- cvitioral Association, describing her el fort lo remedy a deficiency that wasn't her fault, is only one of the thousands of heroic chapters bcinK writlen in Ihe flglit to save the schools. /• In fact, Ihis practice and that of mimeofraphing parU of books for use of .iludenls whose communl- lies couldn'l buy tire volumes, has Ix-eome so prevalent that 'nook manufacturers banded together in a complain! agninsl -it, arid are insisting on their copyright pro- leclion to stop Ihe practice. BAKRED BY TUITION COST Some communities actually have liecn driven to charging' tuition in public, schools. For instance., in Arkansas llicre are certain' districts which, Ho keep their schools' open al all. scl a luition charge as high as SBo'a year. ili| town of 15.000. more than SGI) children arc known to have been excluded from school because (heir parents could not afford the tuition wl;ich toe "public" schools had" lo charge. In this'Case Ihe charge was S3 a child a moiilh; hiph "school. S5.50. Obviously, many poor families these days cunnot. afford to pay anv tuition. Educators here point out that if this tendency is allowed to go. farther, or to exist al all. it means' the eventual creation of two casles - an educated group whose parents could afford lo send them lo school, and an uneducated group which was not so fortunate. ., It Is the complete negation of ihc American idea of popular education. •DOAK1HNU AROUND 1 REVIVF.I) Shutdown of schools doesn't always mean thai children can't go to school at all.

The re ^ r( lions, the practice of the teacher ' "boarding around" with the fami- lic. 1 : of pupils has grown up again. !r. jhc early days this was common in America. The isolated district with lillle cash revenue would get each family ol the district who had school children to agree to keep the school-mann EO many weeks a year. For it was conceded lhal so poor and pioneering a community could r.o 1 . pay a decent salary that would , enable the teacher to support!, himself. Now we have slipjwd ", h.ick to that level in many communities. ANCIENT KOOKS USED the middle wvst... .inac.cquiite .1111 cut-moiled'.

In West Virginia the greatest lack of uniformity in text-books u'aK found, children beine allo\vcrt to .scare up any sort of an o!ci text and bring it to rchool. It is f;H that these are better than untiling. N'obody can calculate the number of history text-books of pre- World War vintage that still are doing duty, but there arc many thousands. Children may have hcanl from their daddies about a war in France, but their books still show an Austro-Hungarian empire and f'o not mention 'the World War at all. let alone tell the Mory of the post-war years which so utlcrtly have changed the face of the world.

Appaicntly it had some success, for one teacher at least was found whose salary was cut'from $50 a month lo $25.
