Emergency Levies Nearly 600 Iowa school districts have asked permission to make emergency levies to meet increasing school costs and it appears that a record number of such requests will be made. Districts make application ask permission to make emergency levies if maximum levies fail to produce sufficient funds. Last year a record number of 615 1 requests were filed authorizing levies to produce $2,013,147. Increasing costs in wages, salaries and supplies are believed responsible for the depleted school funds in many communities. Emergency Certificates The state department of public instruction is making every effort to avoid issuing emergency teacher certificates this year. There have not been any issued and Miss Jessie Parker, state superintendent of public instruction, believes the state can manage without them. During war years emergency certificates were issued to enable school districts to meet the critical teacher shortage, and in the peak years as many as 5,000 to 6,000 were issued. The> certificates were issued to former teachers or teachers who had not had sufficient training to qualify for a regulation certificate. Inspect spark plugs carefully before starting to fall-plow.
