She' concludes, with no little irony: "Then, when the finances of 'he province warrant it, could not one or more of the normal buildings be remodeled into homes for indigent teachers?

The need f»r very j fine and specialized training is great. Th* r..-ed to attract into this profession 'be highest typ" of scholarly and understanding people is beyond words. As ORTHODOX ECONOMICS NEEDS HUMANIZING It would be a lot easier to figure out how successful present recovery efforts are linely to be if we only had some way of telling just how exact a science orthodox economics really is. According to the old school economists, recovery from a depression must follow certain natural laws. There must be a deflation long enough and severe ,-efiiough to readjust ail the relationships of prices. m-agM, and debts, which were put out of line by the previous inflationary trend. _JU»fll that readjustment is complete, we are told, '"tljere is no possibility of recovery. ..Now the reason why people are refusing to wait for these natural processes to do their work is that a,terrific price in human values must be paid. A fair expression of the orthodox viewpoint is ron- tained in a bulletin recently issued by a New York b'usiness advice firm. This bulletin asserts that recovery cannot come until wages have been deflated to a point at which industrial operation is profitable under a deflated price scheme. Such deflation, it says, is being retarded by present government relief policies. "As long as the government continues to provide the unemployed, either thru jobs on public enterprises or thru direct relief, with sufficient funds to deprive them of the incentive to secure private work at any price," says this bulletin, "the supply of labor will not be large enough to exert on private wage scales the pressure needed to force a quick adjustment A return to sound business prosperity will be postponed until the government voluntarily modifies its relief policy to a point where it will not interfere with the proper deflation of wage rates." That does not make pleasant reading. During the last couple of years we saw examples of what happens when labor has "the incentive to secure private work at any price." We saw men employed at ;|5 and $5 a week. We saw women glad to get jobs te household servants for no pay at all but their board. JWe s«w college-trained engineers and stalled me- ciuics mowing lawns for 55 cents an hour. We •air, in brief, enough sights to make the heart sick, utd W* »aw enough of them to last us a long, long fit payments to be added. The ad- vtuice in the last 12 months, mostly r>. Corded in the last 30 days, is rffd farm relief, thp sort that registers in the bank accounts of Iowa farmers. Today.

Seven million pigs, the election of boards of education and of officials j slaughtered last fall, did not die who control taxes in the offing, it might be well to consider the question as to whether teachers really do deserve as much consideration as ciparets and radios.

During all 'lie years of the depression, homes thruout the country have been coins down hill. New construction has stagnated and no funds have been available for repairs. Home owners have been unable to pay for normal upkeep and dreams of that extra room or a new furnace or bathroom have been cast aside. Today, there is no longer need for delay. Uncle Sam will furnish the money and there js enough for all comers.
