Finances For
Public Schools
Are Improved
School Bonds Reach Top
Price For Recent Years
In Detroit Market
According to a recent report made
by Mr. Lee M. Thurston, assistant
superintendent of the Ann Arbor
schools and treasurer of the board ofI
education, the finances of the city
schools are in better shape at the
present time than a year ago.
Seventy-five thousand dollars of
current debts and $66,000 of bonds
have been paid off. All arrangements
have been completed for meeting the
$250,000 block of bonds due April
1, 1935.After next April the total debt
of the school district will fall below
$1,000,000 for the first time in thir-
teen years, Mr. Thurston stated.
Because of the penalty which went
into effect Nov. 1, a large payment of
delinquent taxes was made during the
month of October. On December 1 the
state will distribute the second in-
stallment of the primary school
Ann Arbor school bonds are now'
quoted on the Detroit market at the
highest price in recent history, Mr.
Thurston said. Four and one-half per
cent bonds maturing in eight years
are quoted at about 105. Short term,
bonds bearing five per cent interest
are selling at a yield of three per cent
or better, showing a considerable rise
over the price of the past two or
three years, he explained.
Mr. Thurston stated that there has
been little change in the school fac-
ulty. There is a slight decrease in the
number of faculty members as com-
pared with three years ago, inasmuch
as all voluntary vacancies have not
been filled. As a result of the cut in
the size of the faculty,. the classes
throughout the school system are
slightly more crowded than formerly,
but no change has been made in the
curricula of the various schools. Rec-
