TEACHER SHORTAGE WILL CONTINUE FOR TWO YEARS Iowa's wartime shortage of public school teachers will not abate noticeably before 1948. Dr. E. W. Goetch. director of teacher placement at the Iowa State Teachers college, said on Saturday. He said returned GIs will take up the slack somewhat, but the shortage in the elementary and primary grades will remain critical or even grow worse in the next two years. It will take several "bumper crops" of college teacher graduates to completely fill the gap," he added. But for every veteran who returns to teaching, at least one woman is retiring. Servicemen's wives and other women who entered the teaching field as a patriotic gesture and who now feel the emergency is over are "leaving in droves," Dr. Goetch said. Basing his statements on a study of teacher placement conditions in 245 American colleges, Dr. Goetch said 1945 revealed the greatest shortage yet. Teachers will continue to receive war-size paychecks Dr. Goetch believes. Salaries even may increase. "The other day we placed one veteran, with no teaching experience, in a $2,400 teaching position," Dr. Goetch said. "We never did that before the war." Iowa salary raises ranged from 30 to 80 per cent during the last five years, with some communities awarding 100 per cent increases. As usual, the most acute shortage exists in the one-room rural school. The least shortages are reported among high school teachers of English, history, foreign languages and social sciences.

W SOMETIMES, although an idea is wrong, it does no harm. Like the idea that a square jaw is the sign of will power. That winters aren't as severe as they used to be, or that red hair denotes quick temper. But there are other wrong ideas, which are definitely harmful to public confidence in and understanding of industry. One such idea is the current "guessing" about profits made by large business organizations. Many people are apt to grossly exaggerate the money made by business. So Opinion Research Corporation (an independent organization) made a survey to learn just what the public thinks about profits. Compare these guesses and yours with the International Harvester profit figures given below. Wages and materials consume nearly all of every dollar Harvester takes in from sales. A Government board has recommended and tho Company has agreed to pay a general wage increase of 18 cents per hour for Harvester factory employees. The Government has also allowed price increases on raw materials which wo purchase in large quantities. Steel has had an average increase of 8.2%. Public guess on war profits. . 30.0£ ® I H four war year average profit .. . 4.91 In this survey, the average of the guesses by the public of tho wartime profits made by industry was . . . thirty per cent (30%). But in tho four war years of 1942, 1943, 1944, and 1945, tho profits of International Harvester Company averaged only . .. 4.9% on sales. Less than one sixth of what the general public "guessed" for all industry. For this period, tho year by year por cent of profits on salos was: 1942—7.34, 1943—5.59, 1944—3.95, 1945—3.93. ®@®® Public guess on peace profit* 18.0* /C\ ge\ IH four pre-war year \3J %L) average profit. . 7.17* In tho four peace years of 1938, 1939, 1940, and 1941, tho profits of International Harvestor Company avoragod . .. 7.17%. This is well under half of what the public "guessed" for all industry. ®' M *® ® ,H © MaioritJ think fair profit In normal times Is 10* i H ten-year average is less than 7* The survoy indicates tho public knows that in our economy profits are indispensable. And tho majority regard 10% as a fair rate of profit in normal times. Many large businesses, including ourselves, would consider it a banner year if we could reach this figure. Our average profit for the last ten years—four war and six peace—was 6V/3%—more than a third less than what the public considers fair. AU these figures show that our profits are not high. As a matter of fact, tho entire farm machinery industry is a low profit industry, In 1944, the Federal Trade Commission published a list of 70 industries ranked in order of their ratio of profits to sales. Tho farm machinery industry was 57th on tho list. What About Current IH Prices? When the War ended and wo planned our peaco-timo production, wo had hoped to bo able to servo our farmer customers at tho same level which has hold Binco 1942, regardless of war-time increases in costs of wages and ma- ^ U P to that timo. But re- tent developments have forced a change in our plans There has been no general increase in our prices since they were frozen by the Government early in 1942. So our situation today is that what wo BUY costs us 1946 prices. We will be paying averago hourly wages 56% above 1941. For what wo SELL we get only 1942 prices. This condition cannot long be met out of our present low rate of profit. Future Prices on IH Products It is plain that price rolief will be needed to meet tho increased wugo and niatortal costs which wo must carry. Wo regret this necessity. Wo prefor to lower prices, when possible, rather than raise them and wo know our customers prefer to havo us do that. We had hoped to bo oblo to "hold tho line," at least But we do not see how wo con avoid operating at a loss if our prices continue to remain at their proBent frozen lovelB. Wo will NOT "cut corners" on any of our products, because QUALITY IS THE FOUNDATION OF OUR BUSINESS. Our customers can bo certain that wo will seek no more than a moderate profit, both because of our policies and because we have approximately 300 competitors fighting us vigorously for your business. Our request for price relief will be no more than is necessary to insure continued service to our customers, continued work for our employees, and a roa»on« ablo return for our stockholders.
