RURAL SCHOOLS -IMPROVEMENTS, ' CHANGE, STUDIED Supt. Shirley Comments on Proposal to Consolidate All Districts That rural schools are In the process of change, and can be improved considerably In the near future, but that entire elimination of the 'little red schoolhouse" was in We very distant future, is the opinion of William Shirley, county superintendent of schools. And Mr. Shirley is in a good, practical position to know; he has been supervising Kossuth's rural school system for a good many years. Mr. Shirley's comments were in response to questions asked by an Upper Des Moines reporter, and in reply to statements made recently by Dr. E. M. Tanruther, University of Iowa educator, who has been conducting research work on ways arid means of improving school systems In general, and rural schools In particular. Several Obstacles Cited Dr. Tanruther favors entire abol- ittori of the rural school, and establishment of consolidated districts in all country territory. " Mr. Shirley, while not disagreeing with the University of Iowa man on the fact that consolidated districts have many advantages, did point out two obstacles to them. Qn.e is that many parents prefer to hive small children attend the grades at schools near home, and BMoadly, that the coet of consolidated districts Is greater, and there-, fore harder to maintain. ' "If people can afford to drive a| Rolls Royce car, they do; but If they cannot afford it. they generally drive something costing less money," Mr. Shirley said by way of comparison. Teachers Can Improve At present, rural school teachers can take a three months normal training course and after passing an examination, teach rural schools, if there are any vacancies that they can be 'elected to. However, Mr. Shirley believes that the trend of the times is such that in the near future, rural teachers may be re-_ quired to complete two-year normal courses. Consolidated districts offer a better, improved school district, he added, but obstacles of transportation, cost, winter hardships, etc., are sometimes insurmountable ob- etacles. Of the average ot 275 eighth grade graduates each year in Kossuth county, about 90 per cent go to high schools and pay tuition, Mr. Shirley stated, in answer to a question on that point. Dr. Tanruther, in his survey and research, studied Benton, Iowa, Johnson and Linn counties, and found 601 schoolhouses. He declared that 79 of them would be all that • to teach young Iowa Algona HISTORICAL DEFT.

Eleven people were killed by |.iot or vehicle accidents in Kossuth county in 1936, and the council took as its obective to reduce the number of fatalities for 1937, with splendid cooperation of the peace officers and newspapers. The campaign carried the coti?ty through safely for over six months, Ing quickly on the heels of these two fatalities, a third was added to the list on a country road near Lakota. Several monthfc passed during which no fatalities occurred, until late In the fall two men from Des Moines were killed on a country road near St. .Too. A day or two Inter, the sixth fatality was added on a country road near Seneoa.

County "Stop" Signs Several months ago, the county supervisors and engineer's office arranged for the installation of several hundred stop and warning signs on country highways, which will prove of great benefit to motorists.

Everyone is invited to this safety meeting and to assume an active part in the safety program, as the membership is open to everybody—men and women, farmers and business and professional Ahoy, There, Bill Higgins (By Special Correspondent) Let me congratulate you for hitting the bull's eye, in your last edition... Bachelor Editor Bill Higglns of Whlttomore did right well In admitting his Interest in Chicago, nnd stating that he was making a trip into Chicago this week end. However, lie in not aware of the fact that your "correspondent" knows he has made several trips to the big city since last summer, about which he didn't tell a soul, and that Western Union and Uncle Sam have profited immensely by the business he has Riven them. Also, some Jeweler made a big deal when he sold BUI a "big rock" some time ago. I believe Bill should know that you are a little wiser than he thinks about the goings on.
