Oil Passes Coal As Top Cargo on lllitwisWatenvay Teacher Salaries Doubled in 9 Years SPRINGFIELD, Jan. 13. UP)— Salaries of grade and high school teaCffers in downstate Illinois cities have doubled in the last- nine years, a state teachers organization said today. Lester R. Grimm, research director for the Illinois Education Association and author of the pay study, said salary levels "still are too inadequate to make teaching a real profession." Grimm's findings and comment were published In Illinois Education, an IEA publication. In cities of 30,000 to 100,000 population, the average annual pay of high school teachers rose 111 percent to 54308 during the nine years, and that of grade teachers 109 percent to $3367. Peoria was not Included in the study. Similar percentage increases were recorded in cities of under 30,000 population. However, salaries In the smaller cities run low- ei In dollars. Grimm said that because of stiffer taxes and Increased living costs a teacher now needs a salary 89 percent larger than In the 1940-41 school year to have equal purchasing power. Petroleum products displaced coal as the leading cargo on the Illinois waterway during December. 1949. Oily twice before in the history of the waterway has coal slipped from first place In monthly tonnage. Statistics released Thursday by Lt. Col. J. p. Campbell, Chicago district engineer, indicated that barge shipments of oil in December were substantially larger than water movements of coal on the lower Illinois river. Tonnages of oil and coal carried over the sanitary and ship canal and the Calumet-Sag canal showed only a few thousand tons difference for the month. At Peoria lock- and dam, for example, the Corps of Engineers, who maintain and operate the Illinois Waterway, recorded movement, of 329,3000 tons of petroleum products In December and only 274,908 tolls of coal. At Lockport, 249,242 tons of petroleum products and 258,500 tons 01 coal were shipped through the Lock in December. Col. Campell said that the de- clinn in coal as the leading commodity shipped over the Illinois V.'alerwny undoubtedly was due to I he coal strikes and the three- day week at Illinois mines. Coal still retained second place In ton- nnge carried on the Waterway during the month, however, with grain in third place. Data collected by the Corps of Engineers indicated that much of the oil shipped over the Illinois waterway from Mississippi and gulf ports was dropped off at local terminals along the river. Of 374,500 tons of petroleum products which passed northbound through the LaGrange lock and dam near Eeardstown, only 226,592 tons reached the Lockport lock during I he month, indicating that about 150,000 tons were delivered to communities along the Illinois river. Coal mined in central Illinois and shipped via the Waterway, on the other hand, was practically a "through" product destined for the Chicago industrial district. The Army Engineers at Peoria Lock and Dam recorded 274,908 tons of coal passing northbound. At Lockport, 258,500 tons were still bound for the Chicago area. Shipments o£ grain on the Illinois waterway during December were moving in two directions. The greatest tonnage of grain was shipped from terminals along the Illinois river Into the Chicago area, but sizeable quantities also were being moved southward toward the Mississippi river and the gulf.
