Our School System Faces Collapse The next session of Congress will probably bo asked to vote something like ?60,000,OnO for the relief of the nation's public schools; nnd when the question conies up- for debate we are likely to get a look at. one of the most critical phases of the entire depression. In a way, the whole business is ;t sample of whnt happens 'when an, irresistible force meets an immovable object. ; The irresistible force is the schools' need for money—a need .that simply must be met. The immovable object is the fact that thousands of cities and counties simply .haven't got the money and can't possibly get it. In consequence, the problem becomes one of the great number that i,i being tossed on the receptive !np of Uncle Sam. * » • Superintendent Charles A. Lee .of Missouri, head of a committee of edu- cition officials appointed to present the schools' case to Congress, lists a few of the ways in which the depression has crippled the schools;. This year will see 80,000 fewer teachers on the job in America than were employed last year • -although the ' NRA has released at least 100,000 boys arid girla of school for further study. Teachers'' pay has been reduced, on the averape, by 20 per cent.' In some regions the cuts are as high as 60 per cent. ' Half of all the teachers will get less than $400 for their year's work. Some . are actually getting lts:i than ?35 a month—the day labor wage in NRA codes. In many localities schools will be in session for only three or four months. Many high -schools have had to go on a tuition basis, which means that thousands of .vpun^sters won't get the .education they are .entitled to. • * . * On the other hand, there is not a city nor a county in America that is notl pressed for money. Tax revenues have fallen off, both because of the depression and <jcrause of antiquated tax systems. Furthermore, we arc t>eginning to hear a wave of propaganda in favor of still further economy in the schools— propaganda backed, for the most part, by,-wealthy. imlivid,u»U who• have far less reason for complaining about. school expenditures thin' the' ordinary middleclase citizen who pays his (axes without a whimper, ' ' it is a critica) situation. The school system is in the process of collapsing, and it is supremely important that the collapset be averted. If no one but Uncle Sam -can. do it, it looks very much as if he would have to dig down in his pocket for whatever funds may be needed. 'Lowbrow' Music Dr. Arthur Rodzinaki, director of the Cleveland Orchestra, Bays that "high-brow" music has got to take off its Roup-and-fish regalia and make its appeal to the man who likes to sit around in his shirt sleeves. "The idea that one has to be done out in handsome clothes to hear a symphony concert is foolishness," he remarks. And he adds thrt he plains "to take our orchestra to the people who need it most, the workers.' . If rn,ore orchestra conductors hiid this idea, it is a safe bet that support of high-class milsica! organizations in America would not rest' so largely on the backs of the wealthy. In too many cases -Society has made musical functions an excuse to parade in evening dress; and the ordinary man in the street, feeling -like a fish out .of water in. such a crowd, simply stays away. Genuinely ; ran be RS popular in America as anywhere—if the people who .{sponsor it just take the pains to doff the high l-at. , The approach of prohibition repeal offers dry'ions n chance to make it tragic mistake; and there lire indications that at least a few of them are all .oet to take it. An official of the Ohio Anti-Saloon League, foiK 1 instance,- reriiarked tlie other day. that his or<janization can hoid no.vie)V3;'as to thn sort of liquor control system it would like to see adopted once the dry law dies. .'•"That," he said, "is impossible because .the ..league does not admit'de- feat, will not .concede anything, will not discuss: possibility of. repeal, will not give any. attention to any questions of.AvKat. niay. be done 'after re- Iteal and will •'.not prefer any particular form of Jiquor coritro!,'since it does riot believe .in itnythinsr except complete prohibition." Dje-hard fidelity .to « principle i« always admirable. But the tlrys could render a useful public service right now-in helping their fellow citizens-to find a practical method of controlling the liquor, traffic. It is disappointing to see that, sortie dry leaders are washing their hands of that problem.
