MYEJKS, PH. D. Head Department Parent Educatioi Cleveland College, Western Reserve University There are approximately 140,000 one teacher schools in the Unitec States, as against 1S8.000 of them in 1920. The number of rural children transported to and from school every day is about 1,600,000. State support of public schools varies from 80.5 per cent in Delaware to 1.7 per cent in Kansas. To keep a child going in public school a year in our country costs, on the average, $74. In 1930, the average was $90. The annual expenditures for pubic schools have decreased 22"per -ent in the last five years. Between 1926 and 1934 governmental costs other than for schools in our nation increased 69 per cent, while costs for public education decreased 11 per cent. Teachers' Salaries. Since the onset of the depression, in some places, teachers' salaries have been cut to the level of 50 years ago. More than a quarter of all the teachers in our nation get less than 5750 a year. Private and church supported colleges cut their salaries on an average of 22 per cent between 1930 and 1934; a quarter of these colleges cut 35 per cent; some as much as 50 per cent. The average child in the United States goes to school fewer days in a. year than the child of any other nation in the western world. Our average term 13 171 days a year. For the elementary school child of other countries the terms are: Austria, 229 days; Belgium, 230; Brazil, 194; Denmark, 246; Egypt, 189; France, 200; Finland, 200; Germany, 228- England, 210; Italy, ISO; Norway 228; Spain, 230; Sweden, 207. School Holidays. . In our country we have no school on Saturday and Sunday. In many other countries of the world the clays off are Sundays and Thursdays. Such is true of Austria, Belgium. Brazil, France, Italy. Children in some countries have only Sunday off, as in Denmark, Germany, Iceland, Spain. In Greece they have all of Saturday and Sunday and Thursday afternoon. In Egypt, Thursday afternon and Friday. Whereas most countries have the long vacation from late June to September, Argentine and Brazil have from November to March. National holidays do not exceed five in most countries. However, Equador has 12; Uruguay, 20; Bengal India, 46 national and religious festivals. In more than half the states of the United States children must go to school until they are 16 years of age. However, in Texas. North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia it is only 14 years. In Virginia, 15; in Mississippi, Maine, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming it is 17. In Washington, Idaho, Nevada, Utah. Oregon, Oklahoma and Ohio, it is IS years. --·:·-- Youth From Klemme Is in Troubadour Concert KLEMME--Madame Else Behlert Bauer, who has had the lead in operas in such cities in Germany as Hanover, Nuremberg and Munich, will be featured as soprano soloist at the Troubadour .concert at the Klemme Reformed church Monday evening at S o'clock.

(UP)--Many farmers in Bremer county are testing their seed oa'ts this week, in preparation for the spring planting season. Seed experts said 20 to 25 per cent of seed oats in the county will show germinations of 30 to 50 per cent, rather than 90 to 94 per cent, the usual rate. Bin burn, caused by putting oats in the bin when too wet, is a major cause of poor germination, the experts said. Heavy infestations of mold also cause low vitality in seed it was explained.
