frting the board of education to ln
urua the salaries of the grade teachers.
In the : public schools. Jay Laverty. a
commission man and former president of
the school board, said that the men who
feed ; hogs and tend cattle at the stock
yards are paid twice a . much s the
teachers in the public scaoois. Mr. Lav
erty paid a high compliment to the
schools of the city and to the economic
policy of the present board. Rev. Dr.
Wheeler uoted figures and pleaded with
the board to take into consideration the
tact that the salaries of the teachers had
not; been raised in nine years. City
Attorney H. C Murphy, commenting on
the arguments made by Dr. 'Wheeler
and Jay Laverty, insisted that It was
poor public policy that dictated a nig
gardly practice in remunerating the
men and women who train and educate
the future citizens of the town. He said
it was a shame to think that people
paid more for tending cattle and hogs
than for educating the men and women
of tomornow. . .
The strong representation made by the
three speakers last night was the out
come of a movement for increasing the
salaries of the, grade teachers from the
present standard to a scale with $50 as
the minimum and S5 as the maximum
per month. A petition signed by over 660
tax payers urging the increase of salary
was presented by Dr. Wheeler. Presi
dent .of the School Board E. R. Leigh,
explained to the committee that under
the rules of the board no action eould
be taken on the petition until a later
date,' It is probable that some measure
locking to an Increase of teachers'
salaries will be made by the present
board. It was remarked by a number of
teachers that the men who went to the
front before -the board were all repub
licans and that the board itself was con
trolled by a republican majority.
