State Teachers Asso.
Of Texas Schools
The Texa-. State Teachers Asso-
ciation has just completed a suivey
amonjr city and county school su-
periniendents to determine the con-
dition in the public schools of Tox-
ns. Rei lies were received from 1,-
038 superintendents representing
35,874 teaching positions or about
7H1 . of tin* total in Texas. The
turn-over in the teacher personnel
in the public schools for this year
is the greatest in our history. 9,-
272 teachers or more than 25- ■
were new in their job when school
opened this fall.
Of the teachers included in the
survey, 5,730 were listed with sub-
standard qualifications which repre-
sents 1 out of each 0 in the state.
Superintendents reporting stated
that they had in their school sys-
tems 2,157 classes with a student
enrollment of 40 or more. The na-
tional standard for enrollment is
27 students in high school elasse.-
and 30 in elementary classes. This
over-crowded condition has resulted
from the shortage »f teachers and,
in many instances, a lack of ade-
Today, Texas needs at least 9,000
qualified teachers to relieve our
over-crowded classrooms, to add to
the curriculum many subjects thut
have been eliminated during the
war years, and to replace sub-stand-
Superintendent Charles M. Rog-
ers of Amarillo, retiring president
of the Texas State Teachers Asso-
ciation commented that: “Toduy if
our public schools could employ im-
mediately all of the students in the
colleges and universities of Texas
that are preparing to be teachers,
we would not relieve our great
shortage. I am sure that we do not
have in our Texas institutions of
higher learning 9,000 people today
who are preparing to become teach-
ers. We must raise salaries in Texas
high enough to encourage those now
in college to enter teaching us their
chosen profession. I cannot see any
other solution to the problem.”

A. The veteran must report those
wages received for the standar..
work period of the establishment
where he is employed, including
overtime work customarily sched-
uled. It will not include occasional
overtime beyond the standard work-
period of the establishment.
Q. I am taking training under the
G. I. Bill and am working at night
for which I receive the usual 10
percent differential. Do I have to
report this differential to the Vet-
erans Administration in making a
report of my income?
A. Yes. Both the base pay and the
10 percent differential would be in-
cluded as wages in determining the
rate of subsistence allowance pay-
able and accordingly must be re-
ported by the veteran and the em-
Q. Can my subsistence allowance
be apportioned in event my wife
and I decide to separate?
A. Yes. The subsistence allow-
ance is subject to apportionment
on the basis of 70 percent to the
veteran and 30 percent for the wife.
Further apportionment may be
made in the case of children.
Q. Is a veteran following a
course of vocational training entit-
led to a vacation during the time
he is in training?
A. Yes. A leave of absence may
be granted but not to exceed 30
days in any consecutive 12 months.
Q. Will subsistence allowance be
reduced during the leave of absence
or vacation of the veteran?
A. No. The veteran will be consid-
ered as pursuing his course of vo-
cational rehabilitation while on va-
cation and will be paid accordingly.
Veterans who wish to assign their
terminal leave bonds to the Veter-
ans Administration as payment on
their GI insurance should get the
necessary assignment forms from
the nearest VA office.
Although VA does not issue the
terminal leave bonds, under the
Armed Forces Leave Act of 1946,
the law authorized VA to accept
the bonds as insurance payments.
When a bond is used for insur-
ance premium payments it must be
assigned in its entirety, VA said.
Any balance above the amount nec-
essary to make the desired payment
will be credited to the veteran’s
account and will be used to pay
future premiums unless otherwise
