State's Att'y Hoyne has personally
reviewed with his assistant, Frank
Johnston, and with Margaret Haley,
busienss agent Teachers' Federation,
some of the facts on the falsified sen
ate journal by which the Baldwin
committee was created. Hoyne may
announce next week whether action
is possible from his office.
Sec'y Lewis Larson gives out the
news that 500 teachers out of 700
stick with the Teachers' Feedaraion'
and refuse to sign pledges to pull out
of the federation. Along with this
it is said that the "board of' education
will actually order that these 500
teachers shall-notbe paid automatic
increases in salary. ,
"If you stick with the federation
you don't get a pay raise," says Sec'y
Larson in substance through this or
der. "Quit the federation and come
with us and you get your pay raise."
When it domes to the real action
of enforcing this orddrSthere is sure
to be action from thefederation end.
The Loeb-Rothman rule, not yet le
galized, gave teachers three months
to decide whether they quit the fed
eration. In trying to stop automatic
increases of salary the Larson-Loeb-Rothman
bunch are assuming they
know the courts will decide that the
school board has a right to kill the
federation which is another story.
Pity the poor blind man ihese days
of short skirt and low neck.
