Upon the recommendation of the play

the months of January, February and
Letter Excites Comment.
A letter from the Commissioners caused
much comment in the board. The letter
was in reply to one sent by the board
asking for repairs in the Thompson School
building, and the Commissioners stated
that tile repairs were Inadvisable, as the
board has advised Congress that It was
unfit for use as a school building. After
the letter was read President Oyster
pointed out that the Commissioner* must
be familial* with the delay in getting new
buildings, requiring usually three years
or more. He said he was. therefore, un
willing to accept the view of the Com
missioners. as. lie thought. th? walls
should be calcimined and other similar
repairs made to make the teachers com
fortable in tiift meantime. Other mem
bers of the board declared that the build
ing iiad been a subject of complaint, and
by action of the board the matter. was
turned over to the president.
Another letter from the Commissioners
was read which included one from
Building Inspector Ashford staling that
repairs have been made to the basement
of the Threlkeld School in Georgetown.
"That is a clever answer on the part of
Ashford," declared Mr. Oyster. "I didn't
know he would condescend to do that."
The lette ? of Dr. William E. Chancellor,
the deposed superintendent, written to
the Commissioners protesting against
"more waste of public funds'" in the ap
proval by the board of certain requisitions
for text books, and which the Commis
sioners referred to the hoard, was read
and placed on tile. There, was no com
ment on the letter.
Convention of Superintendents.
The board scranted the use of one room
in the Franklin School building January
15 to the Washington-Manassas Indus
trial School Association i". which to hold
annual meeting. Announcement was
made to the board that the convention of
the Eastern Manual Training Association
| will be held in Washington in the spring
of this year. Report was also made to
the hoard by Assist. Suit. P. M
Hughes, chairman of the 'local com
mittee. regarding arrangements made for
the meeting o? the. department of superin
tendents of tiie National Educational As
sociation. to be held in this city February
25. and 27. He s?id the convention
sessions will .be held in the Metropolitan
M. E. Church and that a reception to the
visitors will lie given in the Corcoran Gal
lery of Art the night of February 27. at
which the Marine Band wil! fun-.ish mu
sic. To raise the expenses of the conven
tion. amounting to about $.>*?. it is recom
mended by Mr. Hughes that the board
appoint a committee. This matter was re
ferred to the superintendent of schools
with power to act.
Supt. Stuart gave (he board offi
cial notification of the death of Miss Mary
E. Kealey, principal of the Maury Schooi
and the board instructed Secretary Hine
to write the family of the deceased a let
ter of sympathy.
It was also announced that the teachers
of the loth. nth. 12th and 13th divisions
of the schools, which include the colored
schools, desire to meet the new sunerin
i tendent and the board members to ex
i oress their loyalty at the M Street High
, School building tomorrow afternoon. It
*s planned to hold a meeting similar to
that held in the Central High School
building Tuesday afternoon, in which the
white teachers participated.
A letter from Dr. G. M. Kober. secre
tary of the President's homes commis
sio.i. was read, in which he requested
that the board instruct the teachers to
report confidentially to that commission
the nameg and addresses of school chil
dren who are crippled, deformed, under
fed or in any way neglected. Mrs. Ter
rell said site yas surprised to learn from
Assistant Superintendent Bruce the num
l?er of colored children in a certain sec
tion of tne city who appeared' at school
in the morning without breakfast, and
she said she disliked to have the bo*rd
grant the request. Members of the board
stated that eome precaution chouid be
taken about giving names and ref^rr.l
the letter to the superintendent: witn
Instructions to confer with Dr. Kober in
the matter and act as lie thought

pupils of the sixth grade of the Lincoln
School be granted permission to .hold an
entertainment In the school for the bene
fit or Camp Pleasant January .51. I he
board 8*re*d to suspend the rules and
grant the permission, without precedent.
Object to Two Recommendations.
The recommendations in regard to the
transfers and promotions of teachers were
next taken up. Onlr two were not rati
fled by the board, those of Miss A. A.
Wheeler and J. W. Cromwell, jr, w ho
w-re assigned to the seventh grade. These
teachers, the discussion brought out.
were put into the schools from the out
side, to teach in the new Latin andIGfr
man classes which Dr. Chancellor
dertook to introduce. When those cUsses
wer> given up these teachers had no
places, and they were therefore appoint
ed teachers In the seventh grade. Mrs^
Terrell and*Mr. llon.er said they'
to go on record as b?lng oPPOsed to thp
policy, because they thought " *

service and who are graduates of th

Mr Cox made a report regarding alleged
crowded conditions in schools. He sa <1
Dr. Chancellor had reported that In \ 1. t^
to schools he had found some rooms
crowded and others with few J
them. Mr. Cox said he made an ln\ -tl
gatlon and that the "statements In the
report or the superintendent are not borne
out by the figures." He found, he said,
that in only one case did Ul? "J^eranj
dudIIh in any one room exceed fifty, and
in none were there u>ss.,1J?ln.t^"^social
