The school head said the school boaid is caught between the cross fire of two groups of citizens. One is composed of teachers, educators and others who insist that high standards of scholarship be maintained and that present day pupils are entitled lo education of as high a grade as school children of the past decade. The other yroup. he said, is composed of ta.x objectors who believe drastic cuts in expenses should be made at the expense of proper cducaiional training. Business men v.ere urged to give the schoo! situation clo£c study and observation in order thai the best pcr-sibl!! legislation for school aid may be adopted.
