SALEM TEACHERS FO.R
Fourteen New Instructors To
Take Places When FaH
The most serious problem of the year
for the Salem board of education
disposed of at the meeting last night . j
making up the fyirgef proportion of the
teaching corps for the coming year. It
was found from canvas of the rolls
that about 20 per cent of the teachers
had either made other applications or
had made pla'.s to leave the work entire
ly. Among tho latter are a number who
will enter the profession of matrimony
Considering past experiences in dealing
with teachers who had made application
elsewhere, the board decided it would
be good policy to eliminate these from
the rolls, as there are many cases where.
such teachers are re-elected but in the
meantime have received more attractive
calls out of town, and thus compelled
flic board to make further negotiations
with candidates. By this move seme of
the' most capable instructors of the
schools mo dropped t of esasidera
tioirt . --'.
A large number of applications were
in the hands of the board, and. out of
these a list of 14 new teachers was se
lected. In addition to these, a number
of transfers were made among the de
partments with a view to greater effi
ciency. Miss Lucille Watson, of Grant
junior, was transferred to the depart
ment of mathematics In the senior high
school,, and Miss Marie Churchill, in
structor in English at Washington,-is
placed in charge of the Latin course In
the senior high school. B. 8. Wakefield,
