Dear Sir,
When our teachers were sent out to Maryland last fall they were told that this association [[underlined]] might [[/underlined]] pay their transportation home.

I think it would be well in sending out their February Salary to give them to understand that they will have to pay their own transportation home in the spring. Some of the teachers rec. more salary this year than last, and the amt of transportation is small for each one.

Your very Resptly
