CHARGE COOLEY WITH MAKING
DISHONEST TRANSL VTION
Edwin G. Cooley, who was super
intendent of Chicago public schools
before Ella Flagg Young, used to
teach children. "Tell the truth and
shame the devil." Now th charge is
brought against Cooley of making a
dishonest translation of a letter read
by him to the house and senate com
mittees on education at Springfield
last week. Prof. Prank C. Roman of
the Syracuse university talked
against Cooley, He charged that the
word "administrative" was inserted
into a letter read by Cooley from Dr.
Kerchensteiner, the famous German
founder of trade schools at Munich.
This one word makes a lot of differ
ence as to whether the Cooley bill is
any good. The letter in the original
German uses the phrase "ganz beson
dere Schulbehorde." Cooley trans
lated it and published it "entirely sep
arate administrative boards." Roman
says the word ''administrative" was
stuck into the letter by Cooley to give
it a false meaning.
"I have been in Munich and I know
Dr. Kerchensteiner," said Roman to
a Day Book reporter. "I know that
the administrative power in the Mu
nich schools is not dual and this rep
resentation of Kerchensteiner is
wrong. In the original letter there is
no word of any kind that could be
translated to our English word 'ad
ministrative.' "
