Teachers' Salary Boosts
Are Called Inadequate
ATLANTA, Ga. (UPi A Nation
al Education Association authority
says fhat today's average teacher
has less purchasing power now
than in .1939. despite heavy salary
Dr. Ra)fHh McDonald of Wash
ington told a southern regional
conference of educators here that
further inflation is taken for
granted, in regard to teachers' pay.
As a result, he predicted, the end
of the present school year might
find schools in a worse financial
crisis than during 1947. He charged
that thousands of teachers have no
real interest in the orofession and
take it up only during depression
