Extension courses are arranged to permit 10 days to each county desiring the service, and the whole 4ime may be given to one subject, or divided among different subjects according to special needs. Educational Problems. Superintendents discussed informally professional problems that at present loom large on the educational horizon. The teacher shortage at present seems to be the biggest "headache" to be faced. General belief is that 1945 and '46 will find fewer teachers than the year previous, and that 1947 will see the low. Judging from j conditions following the last war j it will be three years after the end of the war before schools get back to normal. Some 25%of teachers now i are on war emergency certificates, and there are instances of teachers who had never been necrtified nor had previously taught. At the state teachers college the enrollment is down 50% from prewar, and the average decrease in the United States in teacher enrollment is 60%. Many Schools to Close. With this shortage of teachers many schools will have to make adjustments this fall. One superintendent said his county had 25 schools that would have to consolidate or close. Another said that of 94 schools there could be a consolidation to 45. In concluding comment a superintendent stressed that education is the foundation of democracy, and that the teacher is the school, and democracy is saved by saving the school. _» Conduct Medal for an AHS Alumnus 8th Air Force Fighter Station, England, (Undated)—SSgt.
