FWDA Y, MU 1 ? EM IE R T, IMf AEA Sets $2,400 As Minimum Pay For All Teachers Group Panes Salary • Problem to Outsiders After Wage Approval LITTLE ROCK I* _ Tne Arltgn . f*s Education Association yesterday temporarily passed the weighty problem of adequate teacher salaries to outsiders. But It gave emphatic notice that a »2,400 annual minimum wage Is its Idea of a satisfactory solution. As some 7,000 delegalet opened the AEA's annual 2-day convention here, the organization's ruling Council on Education puis its firm approval on the $2,400 minimum salary for teachers with bachelor'! degrees. But at the same time, the powerful, policy-making Council ordered the AEA Legislative Committee to defer charting a course of action to attain the goal in the 1853 Genera! Assembly. The Council wants' to get a better look at the . political atmosphere when the Legislature convenes next January. And, Legislative Committee Chairman R. H. Cole of Magnolia told delegates that It would be Impossible to draft a practical program at this 'time because BO many lay ar.ri civic groups are studying school problems. The convention adopted Cole's motion lo authorize the Executive Committee to call the Legislative Committee into emergency session to draft Its program^after the various surveys have ,been completed. ' The delegates spent most of the opening day in meetings of small groups. Then, last night they got together to hear a Colorado educator assail a "national, organized attack" on public education. Dr. Harl R. Douglass, director of the College of Education of the University of Colorado, charged that the attack is being waged by American M e r c u r y magazine; Allen Zoll, president of the National Council for American Education, and other groups. He urged that .the teAchers embark on a program of public relations extending beyond Ihe mere informing of partrons of school problems as a counter-attack' to the opposition. The AEA's stand on the ?2.40fl minimum wage was part of a leng-- thy report by the Educational Polities Committee, which recommended, among other things: (1) opposition to federal control of federal funds to Bid public schools; (2) single salary schedules based on training, experience and teaching-loads, and (3) higher professional and educational qualifications for teachers, including a minimum requirement of'a' bachelor's degree for beginning ' teachers'. ' { The report was adopted unanimously. Also approved without dissent were: 1. The Constitution Committee's report recommending seven changes in the AEA constitution and by-laws. 2. A resolutions Committee report offering only three resolutions /or convention consideration.. The resolutions provide for participation by the AEA In a selective recruitment program; authorize creation of a special committee to determine the basis of atlac'iis on the public schools and teachers, and endorse individual contributions to a defens* fund for discharged teachers. Another educational group, the Arkansas State Music Teachers Association, opens its convention today In Hot Springs. The Arkansas Teachers (Negro) Association began Its annual meet- Ing in Pine Bluff yesterday.
