NOBLE Globe-Gazette State Editor School administrators o£ the state are finding themselves face to face with a serious shortage ol instructors as they scan the field in search of replacements for teachers who have resigned their positions to enter war work and the armed forces, and from present appearances the current shortage will grow more acute in the coming months, Some administrators, such as N E. Hyland, county superintendent o£ Butler county believe the true shortage will not be felt until the beginning of the 1943-44 school year. However, some of the state's schools are now running on reduced staffs and others are hiring teachers who were herc-to-fore considered unqualified. ¥ * * Miss Frances Camp, director of the educational placement bureau at - the University of Iowa, says positions in hieh schools now await practically all Qualified teachers. Paralleling- the increased demand for teachers, according to Miss Camp, is the smallest number of potential teachers ever on record in her office. * * ¥ Hural school administrators report that an -increase in salaries will be necessary in the coming year to keep present teachers a their jobs and to induce new ones into the field. In many places throughout the state married women, formerly ineligible because of local school laws, are being recruited to fill vacancies. Girls with high school experience and others with normal school training are being hired by rural school directors in increasingly large numbers. ' * * * Cerro Gordo county, according to Miss Hazel Thomas, county superintendent of schools, probably will not relax teacher requirements. However. M i s s Thomas expects some difficulty in procuring teachers for the next school year. ¥ ¥ « According to a recent survey by the Iowa State Teachers association, one out of every five Iowa men in school work at the time of Pearl Harbor, is now in the armed forces and an increasing number of women teachers is reporting for duty in the armed forces. Rural schools, hardest hit, are reported to -have lost 31 per cent of their men teachers, while re- jorts show that 840 instructors joined the armed forces from c i t y , t o w n and consolidated chools of the state. * * * Charles Whitney, Hancock county superintendent, reports 72 per cent change in school personnel in the past seven months in the 10 independent and consolidated schools in the county. In the 92 rural township sub- district schools operating in the county about 51 per cent personnel changes -were made. Of this change, Whitney reports, 27 per cent of the new teachers had no experience. * * * Typical of the difficulties being faced by school systems is the Nashua casualty list which shows five teachers hired since September,-1942, to teach in the commercial department. A number of schools have reported having hired two and three teachers for the same position. "December graduates under the University of Iowa'.s accelerated program. were placed even before graduation, something which has never occurred here before," according to Miss Camp. Enrollments in teachers' colleges is the lowest in years, according to Miss Camp. E. E. Brand, dean ol the Ellsworth Junior college at Iowa Falls, reports only 11 students are to be graduated from the normal training department of his school. Students taking the course at the Mason City Junior college are also few. * * * The scarcity of teachers is attributed by most to army service, (selective service has not been deferring men in the teaching profession for other than executive positions) government jobs, civil service work, Red Cross and USD positions. work in defense industries, and marriages of women teachers. * * * A measure is at present being discussed by which teachers would be frozen to their professions but no action has as yet been taken. Under the provisions of the measure teachers w-ould be allowed to change from one school to another, but could not leave the profession. Such a measure, it is thought, would tend to hold the manpower at its present level though it would not aid in correction of the existing shortage. More stringent regulations suggested have asked that teachers be frozen to their present jobs. Persons backing these regulations point to the present pirating teachers ans} declare that state's small school systems w eventually be without teaching staffs because of their inability to pay high salaries. , * * * The present revision of the Iowa School code has been pointed to by Miss Thomas as a possible remedy for some of the school problems. * * * Under the revision being con- of the ould Test Plastie Pipes to Save Copper IOWA CITY--A new type of plastic pipe, a possible substitute for copper tubing in war plants and emergency housing units, now is being tested in the University -* Iowa's hydraulics laboratory.

Funeral Service' at New Hampton for Mrs. Julius Timm NEW HAMPTON -- Funeral services for Mrs. Julius Timm, 56, vere hedd Monday at 2 o'clock at 5t. Paul's Lutheran church with the Rev. Theodore L. Fritschel, pastor, officiating. Mrs. Timm died Saturday. She was born Nov. 1, 1835, in ^hickasaw county, the daughter of lerman and Wilhelmina Beier Koehler. Besides her husband, a son, two daughters, one sister and hree brothers survive. sidered a state-wide redistricting of rural schools would be carried ut and a new system of rural .ransportation of school students would be laid out. The re-districting of schools, by Miss T h o m a s v interpretation, would cut down the present num- jer of rural schools by consolidation. The plan would release a number of teachers to fill present vacancies. As an example of the redistricting Miss Thomas points o the consolidation of two rural school districts near Rockwell and declares that the new set up works no undue harcdships on the students or teacher. The proposed transportation change would nuke the state liable for a- large portion of the transportation costs and would eliminate the overlapping of present systems, Miss Thomas says. Under the present system the schools conducting the transportation are paying the foil costs, * * * It is of general opinion that school enrollments will not be cut. Some re-distribution of students is foreseen, and according o Miss Thomas and Mr. Whitney, s now underway. Rural schools, iccording to these county superin- .endents, are gaining in enrollment in some sections. Miss Thomas believes that the increase in ·ural enrollments is being caused by the increased number of married workers being hired by farmers.
