progress ot education waa
by H. E. WrinMA au

The complaint often made that
education is costing too much
money today was discussed by Mr.
Wrinkle and he cited many fig-
ures and examples to show that
education is cheap in comparison
to the benefits received.
The number of children attend-
ing schools has increased 70 per
cent since 1914, he said. A total
of two and one-half billion dollars
is expended on the public schools
of the United States each year,
Mr. Wrinkle said. Yet four billion
dollars is spent for passenger au-
tomobiles. $1,847,000,000 is spent
for clgurcts and almost one-fourth |
of the amount spent for schools is
expended for luxuries such as
candy and chewing gum.
