nounced Wednesday by N. S Hol-
land superintendent following a
five hour meotlng of the Board of
Education at the Y. M. C. A. lat
evening when the Board held Its
annual dlnnor as well.
According to Mr. Holland the
new salary schedulo has been plan-
ned to iossen salary expenses In
the local school distilct for next
long session. No fowur teachera will
be employed during the 1020-30
school period but salaries have
bi en reduced In mime instances so
.'us to call for the expenditure of
it S3 monev.
The induction in salaries Is in
line with -'.mllur action throughout
the htate Mi. Holland said The
reduction was In ought on here l

The new nchedtilo falls to reduce
dome salaries. It even raises the
standard of n few teachers while
Insliuctora with the leaat exper-
ience and fewer university credits
finds their nalnry reduced a little.
Mi Holland further pointed out
that the new salaries yet leave
