He claims there Is a obby maintained by teachers all vor, the state that Is getting unbearable. When the hoard cut the vap;es of the superintendent and eachers they resigned.

To the foregoing the Democrat appended the following paragraph: "As we go to press, Mr. McParland phones us that most of the teachers are changing their minds, realizing that they are not actually taking any cut, as they can now make purchases much cheaper than when their salaries were fixed." Pupils in Protest. In last week's West Bend Journal appeared a one and one-fourth column protest against the wages cut signed by an unidentified "Student Body Committee." The introductory paragraphs follow: "We, the student body of the West Bend consolidated school, feel that we owe to ,our teachers all we can do for them In the face of what we consider ah Insult to their Integrity and efforts to better our schools. We feel that they deserve at least the same salary they received last year. We know that we are having hard times, yet Is It a time to become lax In our educational principles and the selections of our teachers? "We know our school Is higher in standard than it has been for some years; records show this. Our de- clamatory, basketball, and music records all show vast Improvement during the last three years. Certainly this Is due, to a great extent, to the selection of our faculty and their abilities. Living Costa Still High. "You argue that prices have come down. Yes! Perhaps in some things, but — teachers' board and room are the same as when they came here this [last] fall. "Naturally, if the public thinks that the children should economize on education, this would be the thing to do, but anyone must realize that education Is becoming more and more Important as the age passes. "We do not wish to have a faculty that the public, as well as the students, will laugh at, as we do some of the schools. "Of course If parents can afford to allow their children to be educated in this manner, it is perhaps the proper thing to do, but we have faith enough in our parents to know better than this." The enumeration of nine accomplishments credited to Supt, Bliss followed these Introductory paragraphs. Then the other teachers were mentioned seriatim and their work praised. The protest reads as If the committee had been coached In the preparation of much or all of It.
