Another Mtanest Man LITTLE ROCK, Ark.(UP)—Little Rock officers are looking for the "kind" fellow who offered to help a blind broom peddler get rid of Ills wares—and walked of with the he received from his tlrst six nates. By Dorothy Wllllims (Unite* Press Staff Correspondent) WASFJINGTON, !»eb. 14. (UP1 — American schoo's—like the old wo- ho lived In the shoe—have so many children they don't know what to do. What's more, experts o( the U. 8. Office of Education figure that things are going to get worse for the next six years or longer. Official announcement that 3.900,000 babies were born last year Is giving rar-stfihted educators new worries. This number considcrabb exceeds previous estimates lor 1947 And H tops by 500.000 the previous record birth of 3.400.000 In 1946. Dr. John W. SludebnkcT, U S Commissioner of Education, say this means the country's classroom will be bursting with -pupils In few years unless something Is don —and soon. He estimates that about 3,860,000 of last year's bumper baby cro will be going to school for the firs time In 1353. He figures the publl school system will need about 30 000 more first grade teachers an a ttkc number of additional class rooms to get these youngsters pro pcrly started on their three R's. But that Is only the bCRlmiing, a Studcbaker sees It. Pupils a saying In school longer, he poln President Plans Major Address Next Thursday WASHINGTON, Feb. N.

Tills means an overall Increase school population which will ontlmie for many years. At least » In school onslructlon and untold hundreds thousnnda of new tcnchers will e needed In the next 12 years to ct the schools In shape for the 960 pupil' load, according to his stlmales. Stutlebaker, however. Is paiticu- nrly concerned with the first grade utiook. I used to be a bricklayer." tne oimtry's No. 1 schoolmaster explains. "I discovered then that the ujierslructure isn't worth much without a strong foundation. It's he same in schooling." H is obvious, he explains, that he school system can do the moat 'or the most children In the earlier grades, provided It has the personnel mid equipment For this reason, Studebaker Is renewing his plea for qualified primary grade teachers to get the same consideration us teachers ol higher grades when It come* to pay. Stiidebnkcr also would like to see liellcr teachers get better pay nl along the line. He recalls that he once was forced "to lay bricks In Ihe summer so I could afford to teach In the winter." •»"*>>>"*"•"•"*"*:>"•'••••:>::«"•::«"•>"*"»"*"•> I CHURCH NEWS 1RST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH R«T.
