Besides rooms for educational purposes the Normal School buildings can accommodate about 100 boarders. The price of boarding is the actual cost, estimated for the next year as follows: Board, per week, $2.25; rooms, heat and light for the Spring and Fall Terms, per week, 40 cents. Winter Term, per week, 65 cents. Total cost per week, Spring and Fall Terms, $2.65; Winter Term, $2.90.
FREE TUITION TO TEACHERS-The appropriation of the State sustains the cost of instruction.
INCIDENTAL-For heating and care of school-rooms per week, 25 cents. For washing, per dozen, 60 cents.
The school is now in the fifth year of its existence. Its students are already occupying important positions in the public schools of the State. The great growth of the population of Iowa demands a corresponding increase in its educational agencies. The State Normal is but one of these agencies, but has a special province assigned it-the improvement of the teachers. Its work is meeting the approval of our public men as well as the people. Very limited facilities have thus far been provided, and the school has labored under very many disadvantages. While it would seem to compare favorably with the old
State Normal Schools in the quality of its work, yet it could do much better were it equipped as they are. The attendance is greater than the management desire. No efforts are made to secure patronage in the way of advertising or canvassing, and yet all cannot be received who desire to come. But, considering the age of the school and what the State has done for it, the results are satisfactory to all concerned.
