I think that we must evolve some plan by means of which we can give state aid to cities as well as to these rural communities. I am thoroughly convinced that the state aid to these rural communities is well spent. We drew out eighty-five thousand dollars last year for that purpose. It is all gone, and thirty thousand more of bills have been approved, making one hundred and fifteen thousand dollars of state aid to these weak districts. But, gentlemen, it will take more than that. How are these boards of education ever to pay those thousands of dollars that they owe. when they have to draw on next year's revenues to pay last year's bills? I believe the state of Ohio should make a lump sum appropriation to be distributed through the office of the State Auditor, to these counties, through the approval of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, to aid these boards of education to pay the salaries of these teachers, when they are not able to pay them themselves. The limitations of law work both ways. The law says we shall not levy more than so much--no, you don't make any levies any more. You make a budget, and then you go before the Budget Commissioners, and you say "Mr. Budget Commissioner, please give us so much," and he gives it to you, or he does not give it to you. But you don't get enough to run your schools.

Our trouble, gentlemen, is chiefly due to our confusing our tax spending more
