Modern History and Econo
mics Cannot Be Taught
Without Free Discussion
of Current Topics.
Waslhington, April 12.-The school
teachers' unions of this city, at a
mass meeting today, launched their
fight against the board of education
for free discussion of current topics
in the public schools, and for redress
in the case.of Miss Alice Wood, a
high school teacher who was recent
ly suspended by the hoard because
of her "handling of economic ques
tions." Shortly after Miss Wood was
u::pended, the superintendent 4if
schools issued an order to the high
school teachers forbidding the dis
cussion of the league of nations, bol
shevism, or other controversial top
ics, and, according to the students,
debates on the league of nations.
which had been scheduled, were can
celled without explanation.
The teachers at once took up the
nnma ter through their unions, of
which there are five in the District
of Columbia. organized tinder the
American Federation of Teachers
and the American Federation of La
hor. The Central Labor Union of
Washington, the local branch of the
National VWomnen's Trade 1Tnion
league, with both of which bodies
the teachers' unions are affiliated,
anl the Federal Employers' union,
with 16.000 members. have already
lined up behind the teachers in their
fight, which promises to ibe a col
test of national significance.
The issue in Miss Wood's case, it
is stated. arose in class when a pupil
defined bolshevism as being the same
a:= nihilism. In the course of the
iP;acher's correction of this definition
site stated, it is said, in reply to a
iqplu;tion, that she thought "the
soviet governnment in Russia was bet
1er for Russia than was the absolut
isot of the czar." 'This statement, as
reported at home by two of the stu
dents, brought letters from their
respective plarents to the board of
education charging Miss Wood with
"ulnplatriotic utterances," w h i c hi
ch(a'rges the board, contrary to law,
toolk action upon behind closed doorc,
tlien notified 'Mis \Woo'id that she
was susplendod for ai week, and ad
itontlished her uponl her returnlll' to
le,_;e(;ng to avoid "touching uplon
b)olshlovismn and similar heresios.''
