A proposition came up at yesterday's
meeting of the Board of Education to
supply soap and towels to the children
of the public schools and to treat the
floors of all classrooms twice a year with
a sanitary dressing.
The pupils get lunch In school at cost
price, cooking is taught for nothing,
plunge and shower baths are mado free
by the municipality, but this was the
first time tho Board of Education broached
tlio matter of free soap and free towels,
The matter came up on the report
of Thomas Churchill, who is generally
considered the leader of the progressives
u tho hoard. Mr. Churchill has in.adu
an exhaustive study of the matter of
towels and soap, 'though the soap part
of the proiiosition offered great obstacles
they could bo overcome, the report said,
liut the towel question was almost hopu-
Mr. Churchill was not present to am
plify his report, which was read by Secre
tary Palmer. The commissioner had
Interviewed a number of men In tlio
eioap and in the towel business in un effort
tp learn whother or not it was practi
cable for this board to muke a rule that
al pupils should wash their hands and
faces before entering the classrooms,
so as tu remove all possible germs ac
quired in play since leaving home. Of
course it would be necessury for the city
to furnish the soap and towels,
'lint cotpmU loner first s?t hitnv.'lf to
work to find out what brand of moau
would be best for school uw. Bit- noip
wouldn't do, lecausu tho children would
not equally divide. Seent?d cakes were
too costly. Home one gave him a tip
on a new soap liquid highly and pleasantly
scented whioti is furnished In metal hold
ers that give out a few drop J nt the time.
He consulted the manufacturers and
was told that he could have the soap
for nothing for a while if lie would buy
the metal holders.
The commissioner then took up the
towel business, and this Is what he reorts:
"Towels are on the market at various
prices. A Turkish towel of good material
could bo bought for St. As we hove "tW.OfKl
pupils in our public schools buying a
towel for each one totals a considerable
Item. Of ooun-e each pupil should have
a separate towel. Towels are also eheaXr
than the Turkish lath kind. I larned
tiiat we could purchase towels for the
children at 5 cents each, and 1 figured
out tiiot each child should have two
towels a w.-ek. That would mean $72..'0O
a year for all the schools. But it was
the laundry bill for the towels that was
really discouraging. This would come to
$217,100 a year.
"That might Is? tolerated, but on con
sulting soveral laundry proprietors I
found there was not a plant in tho city
that could handle stiuh I'ix laundry
contract. It would have to bo distrib
uted among several laundry conoenis.
I thought perha we could overoome
this obstacle by buying paper towels."
Then the commissioner figured that each
pupil should have four paper towels
day, and he thought this would be all
right until he added up the total. He
dropped his pencil when ho found It
would cost the city $300,334 a year for
the school children to dry their hands
and faces; on twiper towels. Then there
was tho likelihood of a shortage If the
pupils should nut tho towels in their
pockets and take them home for family
Having collected the data the commis
sioner put thorn lefore thotioard to act tit
its pleasure. Tho board members didn't
think this was u good time to make the
washing of hands and faces a urt of the
public Buhool course, but after disapprov
ing the proposition to provklo towels it
referred tho matter of providing soap and
sanitary dressing of the classroom floors
to a committee for u further Inquiry.
