MONDAY, JANUARY 2, 1958 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Wyoming Movers Shows Top Educators the Light By DOUGLAS LARSEN N'EA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON — (NBA) — Mrs. Fred D. Boice, Jr., an attractive mother of two youngsters from Cheyenne, Wyo., is rocking the nation's top educators right back on their blackboards. Mrs. Boice's idea tuftied but to be one of the hottest to come out of the high-level White House Conference on Education because it revealed that she and a handful of public- spirited citizens in Wyoming are just about five years ahead of everyone else at the conference. Its citizens weren't asking anybody for anything. Her report includled these facts: Five years ago the Wyoming legislature, upset by the state's deteriorating schools, set up a citizensj committee to investigate the pTotf lem. As a member of the legislature, informed on school problems, a tireless worker and the mother of two kids, Mrs. Boise was made chairman. "The first step in solving any problem is to face squarely the fact that the problem exists," she says "That's what we did by going to the people 1 all over the state, taking a completely objective look at the schools and trying not to be blinded by school legislation already on the books. "Each member paid his or her own expenses and worked hard. We did a $300,000 study on $12,000 — which proves that the size of an appropriation does not limit the accomplishment." What her committee uncovered was a situation not worse than the present one existing fn most states. But not much better, and getting worse. ' f In a few years enrollment had jumped 24 per cent. The state's birth rate was 11 per cent higher than the. national average. Only 37 out of the state's 87 high schools were accredited by the North Central Association. • • • A study of the state's outmoded school district system revealed that 320 one-teacher rural schools were being maintained in separately organized districts, 45 districts did not maintain any schools and MRS. FRED BOICE, JR.! First you take an objective look. about two-thirds of the districts did not maintain high schools. Only 47 per cent of the elementary teachers and 16 per cent of the rural teachers had four years of college. The committee decided that the immediate need was 500 more teachers and 400 additional classrooms. Then the committee tackled the most difficult of educational. problems: How schools are nanced. • • • It found that one method of »P propriating money was on the basis of the number of teachers and school bus drivers in a district. The effect of this was to give more . money to the wealthier districts and less to 1 the,poorer ones. The final report was put into at- booklet form which any lerson could read and understand, .nd distributed widely around the state. Among other things the reporl recommended that practically all present laws governing the financing of schools be replaced with new ones adaptable to modern, growing educational needs. Chief financial recommendations were that a one per cent sales tax be authorized for the 'support of the schools and that the basic education cost formula be computed on a. .minimum expenditure per classroom. • • • It said: "Guarantee to every child In rural, elementary and high schools a program costing $5,500 per classroom unit." This is a respectable figure for any U. S. state school system. Then, when the committee_j_aic its report before the legislature last January theer was such universal understanding and support for it that recommendations were passed unanimously. Today the state is well on Its way to getting one of the most progres sive school systems In the Unltec States.

He analyzed the vodka situation this way: "American vodka is made from grain. Russian vodka is made frorn potatoes. People who eat too many potatoes, are aggressive, like the Irish. Hence, American vodka may make the Russians less aggressive." Not all Russian vodka is made from potatoes. More frequently, it is made from rye or barley. New Titlt CARTHAGE, N.C.

Can you afford legal protection and guidance? Certainly you ran! Competent, responsible legal service is within the reach of everyone. A lawyer bases his fee upon the benefit you receive from his services an'd upon the time and effort he has expended in your behalf. However, if you can't afford to pay the customary fee, this fact is taken into consideration by t-he lawyer in establishing the fee. He assumes as his first responsibility the duty of seeing that every member of the community is able to secure a lawyer's services when needed. Actually, a lawyer's services are inexpensive—especially if he is consulted in time. He is trained to help his client avoid errors and mistakes—which is far less costly than trying to correct mistakes after they have been made. Many of the transactions in which you engage involve legal questions which only a qualified lawyer is trained to answer. His advice and counsel in advance frequently will save you money and difficulties later. It will certainly bring you greater security and peace of mind.
