The Board of Education last night
voted to grant all teachers in the ele
mentary grades an increase of $50 per
year and to advance the present max
imum of $1,000 a year to $1,100, effec
tive September 1, 1917. This will be
in addition to the automatic increase
as provided by the rules. The min
imum of $600 a year vill be raised to
$650. Teachers who received the
maximum of $1,000 last school year,
will begin in September at $1,100;
those who received $950 will receive
$1,050 instead of $1,000 in September.
Asked Greater Increase.
This subject has been before the
board for several months. The teach
ers petitioned for an increase of 25
per cent. The increase granted will
amount to $70,000 a year, according to
an estimate made fey Chairman Reed
of the finance committee. The ques
tion of increase for principals will be
taken up at a later date.
Chairman tfroiran of the judiciary
committee brought the proposition to
the attention of the board in the form
of a resolution which was offered
several weeeks ago and laid over. In
that resolution it wasv proposed to
begin a twelve-payment plan during
this summer vacation and to begin the
increase in September, 1918. The
suggestion of paying the teachers two
months in advance of actual service in
the schools aroused sufficient opposi
tion to defeat the resolution, but the
board was unanimous in granting the
increase to begin next Steptember.
Violates Business Rule.
Mr. Brogan defended the twelve-
payment plan to begin next month
and -was supported by members
Johnson, Clark, Falconer and War-
field. In his opposition Mr. Keed
said: "This violates every business
and moral law. This is a business
board and it is dangerous to deviate
from the business principles. It tins
is merely a humanitarian matter, as
somebody has stated, then we should
refer it to the Welfare board,"
' "I do not feel that we would be pay
ing the teachers in advance, although
technically it might appear so," re
plied Mr. Brogan.
Finances to the Front.
School board finances were brought
to the forefront. Chairman Reed of
the finance committee stated that in
all probability the board would face
a deficit from $600,000 to $700,000 be
fore the new tax levy became avail
able in May, 1918. At the close of
this month the board will certify to
the county board a levy of 35 mills,
the new maximum as authorized by
the last legislature. The old max
imum was 25 mills. This increase of
10 mills will yield from $60,000 to
$500,000, according to the amount of
the assessed valuation. Mr. Brogan
said he did not anticipate any dis
turbing overdraft by July, 1918.
Frank H. Woodland was elected at
torney for the board at a salary of $1,
000 a. year,' to succeed Carl E. Herring,
whose term expired. The retirement
of Mr. Herring was forecasted during
the session of the legislature. The
board members offered no comment
on this change. Mr. Woodland served
as a member of the board previous to
the last election.
Charles Eads, custodian of supplies,
was granted an increase of pay from
$1,500 to $1,800 a year, on account of

More School Children. 1
The school census when completed
will show an increase of more than
1,000. The Windsor district enumer
ator has not made returns, but using
last year's figures for that district, the
increase is 1,127. This does not in
clude Benson and Florence, whose
figures will be compiled by the county
superintendent. The total persons of
school age in Greater Omaha is 39,
620 and Benson and Florence will
bring the total to more than 40,000.
Berlin Paper Criticises
Dumba for Peace Talk
Amsterdam, July 3. The Berliner
Aa&cs Zeitung, sharply criticizes an
article in the Vienna Neue Freie
Presse by Dr. Constantin Dumba in
which the former ambassador to the
United States said it was gradually be
ing recognized in Austria-Hungary
that peace could issue only from a
compromise and could be dictated by
neither side These remarks, declares
the newspaper, have created an un
pleasant sensation in Germany.
The utterances of Von Hindenburg
and Ludendorff to the effect 'that
peace when it comes must correspond
to the sacrifice of the German peo
ple, says the newspaper, expressed
the sentiments of the majority of the
German people. It urges Dr. Dumba
to observe more ieser and to re
frain from rendering more difficult
the task of his colleagues in office,
and the militar- leaders.

A popular misconception has always placed the services
of the highly skilled "Decorator-Furnisher" among those things
only to be enjoyed by the very wealthy. A? a matter of fact,
it is the least expensive service we perform, for it is absolutely
free, in fact any one wishing to furnish a home, or even a room,
can enlist the services of this department without cost.
"The Home of Heart's Desire" has been built to demon
strate what can be done when the Decorator and Furnisher
work together. Old-fashioned, patch-work methods are en
tirely eliminated. ,
Proportion is the keynote. 1
There is no waste.
Nothing is so costly that some other necessary part has to
be too cheap.

Time and time again the Orchard & Wilhelm Company
have demonstrated their ability to produce wonderful results
