"I tell you what," aald 4one of the
teachers, "it seems to me that school

"We are supposed to be on tap for
everything," said another teacher. "We
preach sermons and give graduation ad
dresses and wo often do not even have
our expenses paid. It does not seem
fair to me when others are paid for
the same tiling. It is all wo have to
sell, and I think we ought to be paid
"The Spirit of tho Profession" was dis
cussed and Dean E. 1 Rouse declared
that tho teacher who thought too much
of the money aide, or was unwilling to
remain in the teaching profession be

"The lawyer who will not give up a
376,000 a year Job to accept a judgeship
at 110,000 a year Is not a professional
lawyer. I do not mean that professional
ism Is paying 3100,009 for a 330,000 Joh,
but that a man should be willing to de
vote a share of his time to his country

should be some advancement In position,

Speaking of the profession in Nebraska

"He must bo a craftsman and have the
