Hy JXM1GI-.YS NI'A Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, — (NBA). ,Nobody in the field of education .seems willing to say boldly how 1>H; a bite must be put on I lie Federal Treasury to Improve the American .school system. All are agreed lhat the time has come when congress .slioultl do something, nut they are lorn between two fears whenever they try to estimate the amount needed. Congress is in a tough, economical mood. It wouldn't do to lose 1 the entire program by seeming t llc ) e,recdy. Hut the need is great, am | the time is ripe, and they don't want to ask lor less lha'n they might he able to get. Senator Robert A, Taft of Ohio has a bill that would approprialc S150.COO.UOO the first year, S2W).- 000,001) tile second, and $250,000,000 u year thereafter. Senators Theodore I' 1 . Green and J. Ilo'A'iml McOra'.li oV Rhode Island have :i bill that would ti'vi; about $150,000.000 a vcar lo rahe teacher's salaries. Senator Gcorcc D Aiken of Vermont has a bill lhat would provide S4C0.030.000 the year, antl increasing amount for each of live ye:irs until the :innnal appropriation became SI.200.000.000. .Support is dlnding between the Tnft and Hie Aiken bills. The N-i- tionrtl education Association is .\r- uuing for the Taft measure, which hr and the Association call 0 "hnnible" beginning, but is • look- in;; longingly at the Aiken proposal. ! With this uncertainty and division, if anything is don c the ! amount iiTi]>ropiiiite<| will be dictated hi the only available manner—on the basis of pjliticai ex- . pediency.

The Fed- ' | oral Treasury would give *,he state of its income, to equal $40 for each enmiph. «hen added to 1.1 s>cr cent,! .school-age cliild. I It is hard to tell how this would figure out because .statistics are kept on Vhe ba.sis of children in school, rather than children of school age. Mississippi now spends Sl.i on every child attending school. i- Jersey spends S198. But Miss- iss-iPlM has a mUli higher percentage Of children who never go to . i :chool than Ne\v Jersej' has.
