Most of School Dollar
Goes to Teachers' Pay
Survey Made Here Shows
Sixty-three and seven tenths
cents of every dollar spent by fie
Salem school district goes Into
eost of instruction, according to
figures compiled by George w.
Hag, city school superintendent.
When duties connected directly
with school administration begin
to grow light, Hug turns school
statistician, and here are some of
his figuring, giving first the gen
eral expense account, the sum of
money spent during the past year
tor that account and the per cent
of each dollar of school money
which; that sum represents:
Maintenance and repairs, $11,-
50S.S1, 3.3 cents.
Operation of plant, $33,873.(0,
.Auxiliary services (health and
library), $7,004.40, 1.7 cents.
Fixed charges, $1.65.88, .4 cent.
Capital outlay. $2,734.82, .
Debt service, $79,003.44, 19.6
General control, $9,278.97, 2.4
Instruction, $258,344.13. S3.7
Hng also made a chart which
shows that the old bonds which
have .been hanging over the school
district for years will be retired
next year, with but $14.S40 now
left. Tbe eld bonds, reissued in
1919, when the district adopted
the policy of Baying off $10,000
annually, nave cost the district
$38,220, in Interest la the period
since 1910. Put that sum Is
dwarfed by the $67,662 interest
which the district sank In this
bond Issue In the 11 years prior
to the reissue.
At tbe present rate of discharg
ing the school debt, all building
bonds will be wiped out in the
year . 1938-37, even including
those, for the Parriah and Leslie
Junior -high school buildings.

A constitutional provision dis
covered by the secretary of state
may prevent a reduction of the
. annual salary of Circuit Judge
Jaatea Alger Fee of Umatilla
county irom fitoo to 15500, be
cause of the decreased popula
tion of his district as shown by
the 193S census.
The constitutional provision
provides that salaries of judge
shall not be reduced during tbe
period for which they are elected.
An Interpretation of the provision
by the attorney general has been
The law law provides that cir
cuit Judges in districts with a
population of more than 30,000
shall receive 14000 a year. The
1130 eenlus shows that Judge
Fee's district has less than 30,-
population, which under a
1939 legislative act would reduce
his salary to $5500.
Officials were inclined to be
lieve that the constitutional pro
vision would suoercede th les
t tslatire enactment.

"Wisdom is Not Always Present
When Grief Arrives"
lany items of expense are incurred at a time of sorrow
which would not have been considered wise or necessary if
the opportunity for calm, unhurried decision had been
present. . . '
It is no one's fault for no one can really be blamed for the
desire to have things done nicely. There is, however, a cer
tain doubt as to the advisability of an otherwise well ap
pointed funeral being held in an uncared for piece of ground
simply because the cost of the ground itself was low.
Lots, in BELcrest are not expensive. Many spots are ex
tremely moderate in price. The first cost is final and if one
analyzes the situation and compares the perpetual care of
BELcrest with the utter neglect of many cemeteries then
the price becomes ridiculously low.
