eal \id of IVIaypr an
Called I'nfit for Duties
Reports Show That in Month
She Spent Two Days in
District: Others at Hotel
Despite th" strongly voiccd opposi?
tion of the Superintendent of School?.
a majority of thc Ronrd of Education
!r.s< night put through the election of
Mrs. Grace Strachan Forsythe ns asso?
ciate superintendent, to succeed An?
drew W. Edson, who retires next month
? Iei the ci.ilsory age limit rule.
'iii" voti wns four to three, the full
board being present. The by-laws were
suspended to permit Mrs. Forsythe's
election, which had not been scheduled
:cr the meeting last night.
Her candidacy is understood to have
been sponsi red by Mayor Hylan. who
on previous occasions suggested her
for vacancies which would have'meant
;- motion for her nnd extended the
[Mayor's politieal domination of the
peehool system. Dr. William L. Ettin
hger, Superintendent of Schools, '??
i plared Mrs. Forsythe was unfit for the
duties if an as.socir.tr superintendent..
Her record as a district superintend
? ent in Brooklyn, Dr. Ettinger cieclared,
could not comparo with recorda of
other district superintendents.
Busy at tho Commodore
"My most recent report would indl
cate," said the superintendent, who has
a volce as an ex officio member of the
board, but r.o vote, "that Mrs. For?
sythe spent just two days in her dis?
trict in the last month. I understand
that reports she is required to pass on
had to bc taken to her at the Hotel
Commodore, where outside nctivities
were engaging her time."
Beside being a district superintend?
ent Mrs. Forsythe is president of the
Interborough Association' of Women
ers and in the latter office has
been active in a politieal way. As head
of the teachers' organj^ation she is
said to have contributed in r.o small
i degree to the support given the Hylan
administration at thc recent 'election.
She recently was apointcd to the Board
! of Examiners by Mayor Hylan, but had
filed her application too "late for the
cx;viiir.ation which is now required of
appointees to that body.
; Mrs. Forsythe was plared in nomina
tion by Dr. John R. Ferguson after
Samuel M. Stern had moved and ob?
tained a suspension of the by-laws.
rhe legality of the procedure was qu.es
boned by Arthur S. Somers, who de
clined to vi te for the suspejision. Act
lr.jr President of the Board George J,
Ryan found no fault with thc procc
durc '"'' ,,;" vote was ordered taken
Mr. Somers, Mr. Ryan nnd Mrs. Emma
L. Murray are understod to have voted
against Mrs. Forsythe. Mrs, Forsythe
has been identified with the school'sys?
tem as teacher, principal nnd district
.superintendent for twenty-six vears
"A woman of this type," said the
t superintendent, "will not add to the
I d'Krnty of this organization. I am very
much distressed by this nomination."
Aroused by estimates 0f an unprece
dented increase in the number oi high
school pupils who will enrdl for study
for the term opening February 1, tho
board last night. on motion of Mr
I Somers, voted to poCtion the Board of
bstimatc for additional funds with
| which to employ eighty-five morci
teachers. The Board of Estimate last'
? unc pared down -he appropriation for |
tr i ae teachers with the result that only
mnety-one teachers were authorized.
Mr. Somers read from a report by Dr '
Clarence E. Meleney, associate superin
tendent in chargc of high schools, to
show that instead of an expected gain I
of 10.000 in new high school pupils
a?nrner, wouJd1_ bc ? &ain of more than
! 20.000 on February 1.
The school building situation is not'

of East Orange, N. J., shoot William

Listcning Post Devicc
Suit Filed for Condemnation
of Fime Goods Imported
by the Cassnzza Company
Proof was established by accident
yesterday that the telephone trunk
j leading into tho switchhoard at stato
. prohibition hoadquarters has been
j "tapped" for months. Bootleg or other
i interests, it developed, have been in a
; position to hcar all conversations of
prohibition officials nnd enforcement
| officers. This may account for myste
j rious "tips" which have reached big
| conccrns about to be raided.
; A New York Telephone Company
| lineman tore out the switehboard at
' headquarters, 47 West Twenty-seventh
Street, yesOrday, preparatory to mov
: ing it to thc new headquarters in the
j Albemarle building at Twenty-fourth
Street and Broadway. He found one
I wire, known as a spark wire, which did
: not lead into any plug on the switch
; board but instend connected with the
trunk line. Its course was followed
by the lineman, who recognlzed it in
j stant.lv as a "tap." It led down through
the floor from the ninth floor, where
the board was located, to the eighth
floor hallway, where il had been cut :
probably by persons who knew that the
switchhoard was soon to be moved.
Indications nre that the listening-in
station was on some floor below. ln
checking up the telephone Instruments
assigncd to headquarters the lineman
found himself one instrument short.

asking the forfeiturc and condemna
I tion of 1.180 cases of brandy and vvhis
; key worth $250,000 which are alleged
: to have been imported by V. Cassazza
| & Brother, wine merchants of 501 West
| Broadway, in violation of the customs
; and Iiquor laws. The liquors were im?
ported during October and November
; i'rom France and Scotland and are the
best obtainable in foreign markcts.
According t.o the complaint, V. Cas
! sazza & Brother had a permit at one
: time to import wines, hut this permit
i had expired at the time of the im
I portations. A bnsic permit issued since
prohibition had been revoked by E. C.
Yellowley, United States Chief Gen?
eral Agent. Attorneys for Cassazza &
| Brother have moved for a review of
! the revocation proceedings and a re
, newal of their basic permit. The case
j comes up Fridny for argument before
Federal Judge Julian Mack.
