Austin, Texas, Aug. 27—The present
plan of distribution of the school funds
to the schools of the State, was char-
acterized as unfair by Prof. S. M. N.
Marrs, State superintendent of public
instruction, Tuesday evening.
The present method provides for a
per capita distribution of $14, has re-
sulted in certain sections of the coun-
try which were but sparsely settled
being unable to give school children
equal advantages as those In thickly
settled sections, despite the fact that
the tax rate may be the same, he said.
"Propaganda is being spread through-
out Texas," said Superintendent Marrs.
“that the State is doing too avch for
schools, but we will not have any
system unless the district system is
abolished. One section of Travis
County has a 50-cent tax on the $100
property valuation and all this tax
raises in a year is $58. One-half of
this sum must be withheld for the
sinking fund to pay interest.
"We have made a mistake in the
per capita distribution. The State
does not owe equal sums of money to
its school children, but does owe equal
opportunities, and these are not ob-
tained by the appropriation of the
same number of dollars to each child.”
j the melon would be a fine resting
place. He managed to squeeze into
the shell, and then rested. But the
sun’s action on the empty shell soon
started, and suddenly the turkey was
a prisoner in a shell that had dried
up and caught him. He was rescued
that night, when Mrs. Cook, missing
one of her flock, instituted a search.
She heard a faint peeping and found
the young one.
