Mo. al education Is neglected, whereas
something of the kind is urgently needed.
The American public school child has
not the physiial stajnlna ot former times.
Despite lus criticisms, retorts the Record
Herald, President Hall was explicit in oe
claring his belief .that the weak points
of the present sstem, as he sees them,
will be remeuled in lime. He oi.a. acterisud
himself as an optimist concerning the
school 8) stem of tiie Un.ted States.
In part President Hall spoke a follows:
Our American schools keen only 191 davs
out of the year. This is ail too llltie. So
much leisure time is unfortunate In lis ei-
lect on the child, and there Is not very ,
much difference between tue long vacation,
and truancy on the boy or gin. out of tne
3,(JW,mAi children between the ages of 6
and 17 In this country, only 1S.6uo.iI0O are
enrolled In the scuuois. Of thoee enrolled
the average attendanco at sciiool by each
child Is but l' days yearly. Thus on any
given aay more man nail or our school
populattvn of school uge ia not In school.
The teaching force is so poorly paid In
America that we cannot expect to got a
very high olass of men and Women, taking
them as a whole. -
The average pay Is 155 monthly for men
and $42 monthly for women. The averagd
length of service hi less than four years.
Mny ot the teachers are not properly
trained and a very large proportion oi them
never go through their normal school. Tho
consequence of the existing condition is
that we have a poorly trained, poorly paid,
short-serviced corps of teachers, on whom
we rely to reileve the country of ignorance.
It has been well said that the teachers
are suffering from dry rot, Inasmuch, as
they leave their souls behind when they
enter the classrooms.
The control of many American school
systems Is vested In appointive boards.
Under this system the schools and teachers
often come under the rulo of Incompetents.
The feminization of the schools is a
matten for contemplation. Seventy-six per
cent ot the teachers in the United States
are women. Many boys go through school
without ever coming into contact with -a
male teacher, liy own eon, now In Har
vard, never had a mole teacher until he
went to college.
There Is a saccharine benignity as a re
sult of the feminization which Is not desir
able for boys. Boys should not become too
domesticated and slselfled. There Is some
thing wrong with a boy of 14 of whom It
can truthfully be said that he Is a perfect
gentleman. Hoys freed ft little roughness.
Children In these days are petted too much.
It may be asked "Whether or not there is
some oonrvecUuu anaweoa the softness with
which boys are treated at school and tne
outbreaks ot nooaiumism wnion are so fre
quent. Then there I the matter of text-book.
Text-books are not as good now a they
were ten year - ago. A prominent pub
lisher to.d me last summer that it Is impos
sible to publish a first-class text-book to
day. The demand la for text-books which
are padded, which have much explanation,
which are not too difficult. The modern
text-book reminds one of the making of
two ounces of soapSnto two hogsneads of
lather, which was the test once required
from would-be barbers.
As for English children are learning
how to evade it. They are allowed to fall
Into what has been called slanguage.
There is no moral education in the
schools. Surely this is a matter for thought
when Juvenllo crime is lncreas.ng, when
there is no and of murder and vice and
graft. There will probab.y be a revolution
on this point ot moral education.

Of. course there ar buildings which ar

IOWA STATE COLLEGE.
Meager Salaries Responsible for Loss
of Maay Professor.
The resignations of members of the In
structional force at the Iowa State college.
Ames, has during the last two years betn
most serious. During the biennial period
ending June 30 last more than forty prof
fessors and Instructor tendered their
resignations to the board of trustees be
cause of additional compensation offered
elsewhere or because of greater opportuni
ties presented for Individual work In other
The question of salaries In an Institution
such as this Is a perplexing one. While It
is to be expected that a certain number uf
resignations will occur within a given period
and transitions from one Institution to an
other will be more or lsss frequent, the
losses which Iowa State college haa suf
fered within the last two or three year
have been out of all proportion to any
normal standard. The fact seems to be that
other Institutions are In the habit of look
ing to us for well trained men. They are
paytng better salaries than we do and we
have been unable to prevent the withdrawal
from Iowa of some of Its most valuable
men because we could not advance a few
hundred dollars in salary.
The report of the trustees further cites
the fact that during the last few months
every man iu a certain department of the
college with one possible exception received
offers from other colleges and from com-
morelnt lines nf wnrk tn talc tin work else-
wh-p. 1, .,i.rip- rnln from I30O to tl 000

. The trustees further say: "If the college
t(1 mftintttn Its standard and Brestla-o It
w to malnta,n 118 "tnuara ana prestige u
must maintain its efficiency, and this can
only be done by a much more adequate
provision for our teaching force. Among
the sixty-six institutions of learning in this
country classified by the trustee of the
Carnegie foundation on the basis of salaries
paid their professors Iowa State college
does not appear In the list because the
salaries paid are less than In any of these
sixty-six Institutions. We do not be'llev
that the state of Iowa can afford to lose
Us men to other states no better able to
compensate for their services than Iowa
and needinp-them no more than Iowa."
The management of the Iowa State col
lege keenly appreciate the situation and
believes that It can only be met by provid
ing additional compensation. The 75.000
asked for 'additional support Is intended
for this purpose and additional expenses
Incurred by Increased attendance.
