OKI-UHOJIA CITY Dec. 2. That

from the. association's funds und us
much more as may be secured from
any other sources bo used In a enin-
paign for mine liberal salaries for
school teachers; that In view of the
high cost of living the president of
the fulled .States be uppeulud to lay
an embargo on tho shipments of food-
stuffs to foretell countries; that
teachers In Oklahoma favor extension
oi equal suffrage to nil nualifed elec-
tors of the state whatever sex. were
principal features of the resolutions
idopted by tho Oklahoma Kducution-
ul association which closed its an-
nual convention this nftcrnoon.
I'p to Legislature.
The legislature according to an-
other resolution will bo asked to ap-
propriate $100 UOU for electing of a
building at tho state university for
use of tho school of education. The
association is to be reorganized on
the lines of tho California association
and It Is urged In a resolution that a
student loan fund be established from
the state school fund in which worthy
persons wishing to go thru collet
may borrow funds from the state at
a" low rale of Interest. The county
unit system was also endorsed.
Make Less Tliun llodcnrrler.s.
A report having to do with tho
matter of salaries and pensions for
teachers read by Superintendent
.Monroe of the Muskogee schools
showed that tho average rural teach-
ers made much less during the year
than a hoilcarrter that the averugo
carpenter had much more with which
to meet the high cost of living than
tho principal of a high school. It
was pointed "ut that many states
have already Instituted tho pension
system fur teachers of old age or who
CaiiilMiiKii t Once.
Tho campaign to Incrcuse salaries
and for pensions will probably be
started at onco and it is possible tho
coming legislature will bo confronted
with the problem that affect the
teacher In which relief will be asked.
In the reorganisation plan pro-
posed the officers of the .association
with four others to be named by the
president will compose an advisory
committee and this committee is au-
thorized to meet with the superin-
tendents' division of tho national edu-
cational association in Kansas City
the last week In February.
Five From Politic.
Those who have been members of
the association many years say the
convention closed today wu mora
free from politics either partisan or
school than any meeting yet held.
This Is the condition the association
has been striving for during the past
The fact that a woman was for the
first time elected at the heud of tho
association and whoso name had not
even been mentioned In the list of
possible candidates Indicated In the
opinion of some members that tho
association not only wanted to got as
far away from political environment
but that the woman suffrage propo-
sition had come to stay and they
might as well recognize It now.

Allho the Ituiiianians a ppai wit ly are

lung. Siafr Officers Captured.
Still another enemy force Is report-
ed to have brokn thru and defeated
the first Rumanian army southwest
of l'iteshtl. enabling it to capture
general 'staff olflcets. The Ruman-
ian and Russian communications are
t-ilciit regarding this last claim altho
both admit that the Rumanians un-
der pressure were compelled to re-
treat slightly In this sector. Further
west in Wallacbia the Rumanians
assert that adverse weather condi-
tions are hampering their operations.
Russian Aid Too Lale.
It. is generally believed here that
llusian pressure on von Falkonhuyn's
army thru Transylvania has come too
I late to offset the rapid gains of the
'German or affect materially the Ger-
! man plans of encircling liiicharest.
I The Russians' latest sui s in cap-
tilling a series of heights soutbe of

; wedge Into Transly vania and proves a
! most encouraging counter move on
the part of the allies.
Success for -Miles.
That the Russian forces In con-
junction with Rumanians are making
progress in Dobriulja is indicated by
the latest communication which re-
ports that tho allies have regained
part of tho Tchertiavoda bridge ocm-
pelllng the opposing forces to retiro
southward from several heights. A
-tfli-nlf Icmit feature of the move from
all polius in this leater of war Is the
absenco of claims that either side Is
taking large numbers of prsoners
which seems to Indicate the desperalo
character of the encounters.
