I have been over here, including the
time I was laid up in a hospital. It is
a great country, but at the same time
I -cannot say that I have seen any anything

Germany is just ruins, trenches,
pieces or stumps of trees that have
stopped many shells and bullets. One

been marching around and doing a lit little

struction instruction the following paragraph:
"A communication was presented
from the state high school inspector
giving notice that in future high
schools would have to run nine months
in order to be accredited as senior
high schools by the' Southern Asso-l
ciation of High Schools."
We wonder what right the South Southern
ern Southern Association of High Schools has
to give orders to the Ocala high
school. Nine months schooling would
mean that our high school, beginning
as it does, about Sept. 20, would not
be out before the 4th .of July, unless
it cut out fits Christmas vacation.
What right has this bunch of Prus-
sians to keep dcala children in the
school rooms during the hottest part
of the year, and make another addi addition
tion addition to the heavy expenses already
borne by their parents? Didn't the
Star hit the nail on the head when it
invented the term, "educational autoc autocracy,"
racy," autocracy," a few months ago?
H. S. Glazier, representative from
Manatee county, says that at the en ensuing
suing ensuing session of the legislature, he
will introduce a bill fixing the mini
mum wage of public school teachers
at 75 a month. We don't think Mr.
Glazier has studied the subject very
closely. It is true that the average
school teacher Is worth $75 a month
and many are worth more, but many
are worth less. At any rate, the leg
islature has. no business fixing the
salaries of county school teachers.
That should be left to the county
school boards ; If Marion county has
tc pay its teachers a mimimum of ?75
a month, a number of little country
schools will have to be suspended.
Some of these schools are for, white
children in thinly settled localities,
where there are only a few scholars
to a school. The only way the school
board can maintain these schools is to
employ teachers who have families or
friends in the neighborhood, with
whom, they live or can board at low
rate, in many cases; one teacner could
teach two of these schools, if it were
not for the fact that they are miles
apart. Also, there are a considerable
number of negro schools, where only
the lower grades are taught, .and
where the teachers, so far from be being
ing being worth or needing $75 a month, are
not worth half the money and can liyw
comfortably on halo it A minimum
wage of $75 would make Marion and
many other counties shut a number of
their schools and cut down the wages
of the 'superior teachers in order to
raise the wages of the inferior, or else
add beyond all reason to fthe tax
rate. Mr. Glazier and his brother
legislators had better leave the-matter
of paying teachers' salaries to the
county school boards.
