Senator Allison is also an expert en

I Just bow this additional money is to
be distributed is the question which Is
troubling the school directors. They are
of the opinion' that the special teachers
and . many of tha high school teachers
snd ' principals are receiving all they
should be paid. On tha other hand, they
feel that many of the grade teachers are
poorly recompensed for their labor.
Taking - these facts Into oonalderatlon
It Is a certainty that tha Increase will
not (be. divided . proportionately among
the teachera. It la expected that the
greater part of the additional money
will go te the grade' teachera while a
small ehare may be added to the sala
