Woodland Daily Democrat (Newspaper) - April 26, 1920, Woodland, California ISSUED DAILY EXCEPT SUNDAY. WOODLAND, CALIFORNIA, MONDAY EVENING, APRIL 26, 1920 DAILY ESTABLISHED 1877. Teachers' Wage Big Question Men Wanted 20 More Colusans File Oil Leases on Lands in Western Yolo Districts Yolo Worker Insults Flag; Under Arrest To Teach in the Public Schools WOMEN, of course, are the mainstay of our schools, BtiT every boy at times, needs a man's influence and guidance. AT PRESENT SALARIES men cannot remain in the ranks as teachers. CALIFORNIA LAW requires equal pay for men and women. OUR BOYS Need the influence of men. W1E MUST PAY BETTER SAL- ARIES. Today's Teachers Build To- morrow's Citizens. Some twenty additional leases on oil lands in western Yolo county were filed late last week with County Recorder Le R. Pier( e, follow- ing the first batch of leases filed two weeks ago and as reported in the "Democrat" at the time. All of the new leases come from Co- lusa county, where Arbuckle residents have apparently abandoned the almond and alfalfa fields for the prospective riches that may come from unfound and undeveloped oil fields of Yolo county. J. P. Hall is agent for those who are filing leases in large numbers. The new lessees of Yolo land from Ar- buckle A. A. Troutman, S. C. Dehaven, W1. II. Chance, C. H. Emmis, Laura M. Chance, Mrs. W M. Chance, James E. Smith, Aileen Tryan, Roy Hughes, E. L. Geno, C. W. Duncan, H. Harold, Gertrude and Elizabeth Bell. Upon the return from the east of a San Francisco capitalist who is said to be interested with John Drum in the oil explorations in the western part of the county, some definite an- 1 nouncement of the contemplated oper- jations will probably be made. Appearing in the Santa Barbara 'News and other Southern California newspapers, the foregoing advertise- ment is an indication of the means being taken by the school trustees of the southland to meet the teacher shortage, and also to crystallze senti- ment for a fair living wage for the men and Women who are instructing the youth of today.

Blevins, and a very popular young man of this city, lies in a critical con- dition at the Blevins Brothers ranch near Woodland, battling for his life as a result of a severe attack of pneu- monia.

It is the "Democrat's" be- lief that means should be provided "NOW for enhancing the pay of this county's teachers and thereby avert the resignation of many of the best "teachers now on the local payrolls. From the Santa Barbara News it is gleaned that there is "a general up- 'heaval in the city teaching force." Thirty-five per cent of the city teaching force is planning to quit their -positions at the end of the school year under any condition. Sixty-seven per cent of the remain- will leave unless they receive a increase in salary. Forty-six per cent will seek other -positions unless a increase In sal- aries Is allowed by the board. Seventy-three per cent of the city will refuse to continue teach- ing here for the salaries now paid. The same questionnaire showed that twenty-seven per cent of the persona now teaching1 in Santa Barbara are obliged to do work in addition to their ported at hand.

Skull Caved in Bat, Ray Close May The war against the high cost of clothing has found a new theater at the University Farm at Davis, where the faculty members have joined in an agreement to wear either khaki or denim until such time as all of them may agree that the old custom of wearing good clothes at all hours should be resumed. The plan was started by D. W. Tubbs. instructor in the Farm Engin- eering Department at the University Farm, who declares that the wearing of denim or khaki is no fad with the maculty members. He says their work is such that clothes are frequently ruined, and it is a perfectly sensible proposition for the wearing of khaki or denim during teaching hours here, particularly when the price of a suit of clothes is around Factulty members who had cor-luroy trousers prior to the agrement may wear the corduroys.
