Wholesome Summer

Diet

If you want to put new life into jaded appetites when the thermometer begins to soar, add more fish delicacies to the menu. When appetizingly and attractively displayed, sea food is irresistible. It is ideally suited as a companion to cooling and nourishing salads and greens. As a change for meat dishes, especially in the summer, sea foods are steadily growing in favor.

Among those who have tried Edelweiss sea food, it is a habit to speak of their "wonderful quality and flavor." There is a reason for this. Sexton standards are uncompromising. Only the cream of the catch passes the scrutiny of those charged with the selection of fish for the Edelweiss label. Sardines from off the shores of Norway and France, salmon from the cold waters of Alaska, crabmeat from deep waters off Japan, every variety comes from the waters noted for producing the finest of the species. To insure your patrons the bestserve Edelweiss, with confidence.

Figures Available on College
Receipts

The total receipts by universities, colleges, and professional schools for 1925-26 were $479,774,664, including receipts for additions to endowments. If the latter are excluded, the total is $407,400,056.

There were received from student fees, $101,499,120; for board, $32,072,876; from productive funds, $49,748,999; from state or city for increase of plant, $18,355,836; from state or city for current expenses, $81,522,432; from the United States Government, $16,144,147; from private benefactions for additions to endowment, $72,374,608; from private benefactions for current expenses, $16,396,853; and from all other sources, $51,912,421.

The total income for the year for public institutions, including additions to endowments, is $176,205,020, and for private institutions, $303,569,644.

Classified by method of support and control, institutions of higher education are of two general kinds-public and private. The publicly supported institutions derive their income mainly from three sources: The city, the state, and the Federal Government. In the aggregate, the states contribute the largest sums toward public higher education. The receipts are increased by the fees and tuition charged the students and by private gifts and endowments.

School Buildings and Property

Values

The people of the United States consider it a privilege and a duty to see that as far as possible, their children are educated and trained. With such general faith in education—a growth of nearly three centuries-the question in the United States is not only whether there shall be educational facilities for all people but how those facilities may be best provided and how the process of education may be constantly improved.

According to recent figures, the total number of public-school buildings has decreased from 258,859, in 1925, to 256,104 in 1926. This decrease is caused by the replacement of one-room schools by consolidated schools, since the number of one-room schools has decreased from approximately 166,000 to 161,521 during the year, and 687 consolidated schools have been added.

The value of school property has increased correspond

ingly from $4,252,328,000 to $4,676,603,539 from 1925 to 1926. Of this latter sum $3,567,213,562 is the value of sites and buildings, while the remainder of the total value is in equipment, such as furniture, apparatus, libraries, etc. The average value of school property per pupil enrolled is $189.

Czechoslovak Teachers Allowed

Maternity Leave

By recent order of the Czechoslovak Ministry of Education, maternity leave of absence for three months may be granted to married teachers, according to a recent announcement. Further leave may be allowed, but without pay, and the time of such leave will not be credited toward promotion to a higher grade nor toward service requirement for pension.

Plan Elementary-School Course

in Money Management

A course of instruction in money management will be given experimentally to elementary pupils in two grades of Driscoll and Devotion schools, Brookline, Mass., according to an announcement on June 19.

The course was planned by a member of the faculty of the high school, who is chairman of the economics committee of the Massachusetts Teachers Federation. According to the announcement, the study will be a systematic one of the implications of money as they confront the self-supporting adult; namely, "the necessity for work; capacity to earn; usefulness of work to others; payment in return for service; and use of money in saving, spending, and giving."

Baltimore Plans Junior Safety
Patrols

Baltimore school authorities have given permission to the Baltimore Safety Council to organize a safety council or patrols in all the schools of that city in an effort to lessen traffic accidents to school children, according to a statement just made public by the Children's Bureau of the Department of Labor covering various child welfare activities.

During 1927 traffic accidents in Baltimore caused 169 deaths; of these, fifty-six were of child pedestrians. In school neighborhoods where junior safety councils or patrols were functioning the number of accidents was very small in comparison with other sections. In the hope of reducing the hazards to school children, the Baltimore Safety Council will organize a safety council or patrol in every school of the city. It also sponsors every May two junior safety council conventions, one for white and one for colored children, the object of which is to stimulate interest in the public playgrounds and direct their use during the summer vacation. They are attended by 3,500 children.

You can readily see the great advantage to schools in having a single machine serving a dual purpose. It saves floor space, cuts operating cost in two, eliminates belts, belt replacements, and gears that are often dangerous when students are operating.

It will operate from any light socket, or if preferred can be furnished with power line motor. In every respect this new machine is exactly suited for schools. A machine no school can afford to be without. We will gladly give you any additional information on request.
