Economic Slump
Causes Increase
In Pedagogies
Still Scarcity in Science, For
eign Language and Mathe
matics, However, Accord
To Uni. Professor.
A. C. Reed, director of Nebraska
university summer session and head
of the university extension, has
written the following article with
regard to the teacher situation:
"One of the effects of the eco
nomic depression has been to turn
toward the school room many per
sons who would under normal con
ditions have remained in other
lines of work. This is relieving the
scarcity of teachers so serious a
year ago, and is even making a sur
plus in certain fields that require a
minimum of preparation. Especial
ly is this true in rural schools and
in the grade rooms in villages.
"There is still a serious scarcity,
however, fof certain positions in
the high school, such s the sciences,
foreign languages and mathematics.
Teaching requirements are such
that persons with a general educa
tion cannot drop into these posi
tions with any assurance of suc
cess. It will be a matter of sev
eral years before this situation can
be relieved.
"The effect on salaries is not yet
, apparent. In a few communities
'', where there has been a heavy
school indebtedness, considerable
pressure has been brought to re
duce salaries, with limited success.
Most schools seem to be holding to
' schedule adopted last spring, main
taining the level of last year in gen
eral, and granting advances for
merit. ,
"There, is a wide feeling that a re
duction of salaries now would react
so unfavorably upon the teaching
profession as to do incalculable
harm to the cause of public educa
tion. Teachers' salaries were al
ways low and were the last to ad
vance. They are not out of propor
tion with other lines now, in view
of the high requirements and the
attendant expense for preparation.
They should be held at tlu present
point until it is evident wh-t the
normal wage is to be and until there
is time to determine a fair propor
tion to oher salaries. America
must never again so discount the
economic importance of those who
must carry the chief responsibility
for the preparation of the young for
life's duties and responsibility."

Business College in
Omaha Is Member of
National Association
The National Association of Ac
credited Commercial Schools, of
which Boyles college is the repre
sentative in Omaha and Council
Bluffs, is an association of high
grade business schools, organized to
serve the public better and to pro
tect it against the abuses of low
standards in commercial education.
Only the best schools are admitted
to membership, and they must
prove, after a searching investiga
tion by the membership committee,
that they are unquestionably entitled
to this classification.
They must prove that their
courses meet today's needs, that their
instructors are able and well trained
and capable of imparting their
knowledge to others. They must
show that their equipment is up-to-date
and ample in volume. They
must give evidence of highest ef
ficiency in their work and an earnest
interest in the development of their
students. They must show a clean
record in dealing with the public;
must have one price and one policy
for all; must be prompt in paying
bills, fair in adjusting complaints and
truthful in their advertising.
One of the express benefits ac
corded to the graduate of an accred
ited school is that he is entitled to
the free employment service of not
only his own school, but of every
accredited school in the United
Students who enroll in any ac
credited school and find it necessary
before completing their course to re
move to another city where there is
an accredited school, may finish their
work in the new school without fur
ther payment of tuition.

You who are graduating from High School or Prep
School toward what goal does your ambition point? Do
you lean toward a career in business or in one of the
professions? Is it your intention to become an educator,
a scientist, an agricultural expert? Do you plan to pre
pare yourself for the strenuous battle of life by thorough
special training in any line? There has never been a
time when such training was more essential, when its ad
vantages were more apparent. We live in an era of tran
sition and adjustment; in a world new-born after the
cataclysm. Profound changes have been wrought. Trying
times, and times of glorious opportunity, are just ahead.
The University trained man or woman will approach these
trials, these opportunities, equipped with sound training
and sure knowledge. And in comparison with these ad
vantages, the time, the effort, the money involved in
securing such training will count as little. Your State
University, time-honored and hallowed in tradition, offers
a well-rounded education in your chosen vocation, to
gether with a host of pleasant and worth while activities
for your leisure hours. A comprehensive curriculum, an
unexcelled corps of professors and instructors; athletics,
debating societies, music, dramatics all these await you
at Lincoln.
Especially" interesting to you will be the literature de
scribing, the University and its manifold activities, which
is now ready for distribution to 1921 Seniors. Send for
your copy. It will be of help to you in making your plans
for the future.
