Norfolk Will Miss the Throng of Pret
ty School Teachers Who Have Spent
Three Days In Town Fee Raised
From DO Cents to $1 and Will Help.
The last nf the clty'H iuonls ? of the
week leave today and Norfolk avenue
will mlHH the throng of pretty "Hchool
marniH" who for three dnj'H were lu

oIllcei-H of the association will Bet anew

The UHBoelatlon Friday voted to
ralHo the enrollment fee from fifty
cents to ono dollar. Men prominent
In the association expect the organiza
tion to bo benefited by the change. "I
was heartily in favor of llio Increase , "
said President-elect A. V. Teed of the
teachers' association. " The Increased
revenue will permit us to neciiro high
er priced Hpeakers and lo offer a su-
perlor program. The Increase Is not
largo enough to affect the attendance
liut the more attractlvo program should
draw additional teachers. The fee Is
the small Item In the teacher's expens
es but It Is the Item that regulates the
character of the program that can be
provided. When wo come lo Norfolk
next year , as wo undoubtedly will , It
should for this reason bo with a strong
er program and a more prosperous as
sociation. "
The association meetings in Norfolk
for this year closed Friday afternoon
with a loeliiro by Superintendent Hen
ry Honck on "Travels In the Orient. "
The deputy state superintendent of
Ponnsylanla pleased the teachers with
Ills address. Although the association
ended Friday afternoon most of the
teachers remained over until Satur
day , many attending the theater.
The teachers at their Friday after
noon session adopted resolutions for
mally expressing their approval of two
educational measures awaiting Gov
ernor Sheldon's approval. Ono bill
ptovldes for the appropriation of $25-
000 to aid deserving school districts In
the western part of the slate. The
other carries an appropriation for $50-
000 to bo used In Introducing normal
training Into Nebraska high schools.
The resolution which the association
sent to Governor Sheldon roads :
"Tim North Nebraska Teachers' as
sociation , representing eighteen coun
ties and five hundred teachers , princi
pals and superintendents of northeast
ern Nebraska in a convention assem
bled at Norfolk , do heartily endorse
bouse rolls No. 217 and 5G and re
spectfully urge your official approval
of the same. "
State Superintendent .1. L. McBrien ,
on the program of the teachers' asso
ciation but unable to leave Lincoln In
the closing days of the legislature on
account of Important school legislation
pending and before the governor , wired
the following message to the north
Nebraska teachers :
"Important school legislation makes
it Impossible for mo to ' o with you ,
but I send my best wishes for the
greatest meeting In the history of your
association. The school year now clos
ing has been the most successful In
the history of the state. The aggre
gate increase in teachers' salaries over
last year Is three hundred thousand
dollars. Thanks to the now certifica
tion law and the earnest efforts of
noblest class of school men and school
women In America. First class teach
ers can and should command even but
ter salaries next year. As an example ,
the aggregate increase of teachers'
salaries at Wahoo is nearly one thousand -
sand dollars. Superintendent's salary
at Alliance Increased three hundred
dollars. Yours for better teachers ,
better salaries , bettor schools and the
five essentials , J. L. McBrien , state
superintendent. "
The session which has Just closed

directed. The officers wcio pleased
with the attendance and with the suc
cess of the general and department

tendance from over the district is at

ue , who has been ono of the most ac-
Ivo presidents In the association's his-
ory in pushing forward the Interests
of the organization. The first arrange
ments for next year's meeting will bo
outlined at a meeting of the officers
