School tcachors and their devious way
of signing up for a school and then go
ing out on a hunt for a better job came
in for some strong remarks this morn
ing. The present law provides that a
toacher may break a contract within 30
days of the time his or her school is to
begin, but the school district is tied
as soon as tho contract ig signed. As
a result, many districts find the teacher
that had signed up had got a better
job and at the last moment, the district
was taking any teacher iu sight.
To remedy this one sided affair, Mr.
Dodd introduced a bill wherein tlrt
school teacher could not break a con
tract within 90 days of tho date set for
tho beginning of school. It was inti
mated that Mr. Churchill was opposed
to tho 90-day limit and that on his rec
ommendation, tho committee in charge
of the bill recommended that tho bill
providing for the 90 day be not passed.
It just happens that in the house are
a dozon mon who are serving on school
boards and have all suffered from the
one Bided contract. Honce the roport
of the committee as opposed to tho 90
day limit met with no favor. The bill
was referred and will come out of the
committee with the recommendation
that teachers be not allowed to break
their contracts within 60 days of. the
beginning 0f their school. ''
An untimely end and an early grt.vtj
was in store for the bill proposing it
poll tax of $5 on every voter in Ore
gon. It is "indefinitely postponed"
and when this happens to a bill it means
Home's bill proposing a Btiper tax on
arablo land not in cultivation was also
buried this morning. Mr. Home waa
sorry the men did not seo things his ,
w;'.y, as he felt there was much good
to be accomplished by placing a super
tax on big farms that should bo in cul
tivation, yet were left remaining id!o
Dy tne owners.
Speaker Jones was ruthorizod to sign
a certain telegram and send to tho Ore
gon representatives in congress support
ing the proposed yill wherein nil dis
charged soldiers nro to be given six
months' pay, the usual allowances and
a new suit of clothes. Tho house thus
goes on record as, favoring such a bill
by the national congress.
All tnxes not paid on or before Oct.
jo of each year are declared to become
delinquent and if not paid by Nov. 5
