Heating Experts Suggest Use Of Several Small Furnaces A the new idea in home heating Is u. l -c ol several .small furnaces MIL- u.'-e u] several .small lilrnaccs or heating units rather than a single larpe furnace, says Practical Builder. Chicago, We can hear grandpa snorting when we call this a new idea. He'll tell yon that's how they healed homes in his day, with a stove in every room. .There's a little difference today, however. The "stoves" we're talking about, and tbevc are several of- them on the market, arc small, compact, high efficient furnaces I in miniature. They arc fully auto- malic ami controlled by thcrmo- stnts. just like Ihc modern centra! furnace. .•Most of them are out of sight, loo. except.for Hie necessary rcxis- lers through which the" heal enters the room. Some of them, called lloor lurnaccs, are designed to bj set into Ihc floor with the warm nir registers flush. They come in various sizes the* smallest only about li) Inches deep.

The present teachers' code of -ethics of the National Education -Association, largcsl teachers' organization in the country, docs . not sanction strikes while conlracts .exist. But as teachers' salaries continues to lag lar behind average ' earnings in privale employment .there is a responsibilc bloc in the association which favors amending the code. 1 .Even under Ihe present code i however, it is not unethical to cease work or even ft) leave the profession if salisfactory contracts .are not ncgotialcd, ae'cording to Willard E. Givcns. cxcculivc secretary of the Education Association. -He doesn't call such refusal to work without a contract a •strike," but he admits it is not much different from John L. Lewis "no contract, no coal" strategy. Although Glvens and the association don't approve of the 200-odd strikes of teachers which have taken place in the country recently he admits that they have been hopeful in focusing" attention of the citizens on the educational crisis which now exists. This admission is one of Ihe reasons sonic factions in the organization would like to see its policy become more aggressive during the coming year. Givens. however, maintains 'that it might detract from the dignity of the profession as a whole if three riiffereiu directions ' Still another unit, burning gas is completely self-contained It can b3 installed anywhere in' this ""or or ceiling, on outside or in- MCC wall.

S. office of Education and National Education AssociatKin Hcscvu'cii Division there is any change made in Ihe present code of. ethics. He thinks the problem can be ~G'ived on a long-term basts. The National Education Asso- :iation's annual report, just released .claims that "teachers leaving the profession since 11)30 have formed one of the greatest vocational migrations in our nation's history," THOUSANDS OF VACANCIES Tiie report reveals approximately CO.OOo vacancies in leaching jobs in Ihc country today, anu adds: "Qualitatively also Ihe loss has been very serious. It is estimated Inut the average Public-school teacher of 1939-40." Believed to be one of the most alarming figures in Ihc report is Ihc decline of students in the I teachers' colleges. The North Cen, tral Association of Colleges and , Secondary Schools reports that in its area, only 3158 sUidcnls finished preparation for elementary teaching In 1046, compared lo 10,! 182 in 1941. and that only 4954 . completed preparation for hiRh- ' school leadline, compared lo 0327 In 1941. Further: "In 1E-20. 22 per cent of all col- leye students in the U. S. were attending teachers' colleges; in 1945-4G only seven per cent," That seven per cent includes many veterans in teachers' colleges, not studying to teach hut there only because o7 crowded conditions in other colleges. Labor front hints of a new- wave of demands for pay increases in industry make tile plight of the teacher even ino.\ forbidding: for 1947. The price rises which would follow a general industrial wa^e increase would make the teachers' salaries even loss able lo support tliem than now. Givcns says the only goal of his association is to make sure that U. s. children gel Ihe best they can in the way of educ-riic-n. He says to resort to the use of the "strike" would violate this duty to the children, lint, he adds, ft perfectly all rlghl for teachers to drop out of the profession altogether, if (hey can't win satisfactory contracts. This, he says, will eventually lead citizens of a community to demand that teachers get more money. son need, in very simili'hou^one Se b< vou"S t ' h \v; Glsai i, 7 ' r00nl 3 °r -I- Will, such an arran'u'n, io.if !><• "i«kers claim u wollld hr ," c ?.
