IUlskih, N. C, March 1 The school
board of Cumberland county divided the
public school fund not on s per capita
basts but in such a way as to keep every
school open four months. The schools
have been held that period and the teach
era havo been paid. The action of the
board was In violation of the school law
but the board thought It was acting un
der the law of 1901,whlch Is of later date
than the school law. The authorities
here do not see that they can do any
thing In the matter. In fact the action
In Cumberland may be really the Initial
step In a new way of dividing money
among the schools.
