JAKE LOEB'S CHILDREN AND
THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS I
Denial is issued by Jake Loeb th
he, while officiating as president of
the public board of education, sends
his children to private schools. Loeb's
denial, however, was not complete
and sweeping. He stated:
"The charge has been made that I -
do not send my children to the pub- Ul'
lie schools. Every one of my chll- ,
dren has attended the public schools '
and two of them are now in the Ken
wood public school"
The denial followed discussion of
a speech by Ella Flagg Young in New -York,
where she stated that those
who claim to be defenders of the
public 'schools should at least not
send their children to private schools.
Friends of Mrs. Young say she had
no intention of making any direct
reference to Loeb. Her remarks
were based on definite information
that Hamilton Loeb, the 17-year-old
son of the school board head, Is a
matriculate of the Harvard school of
Chicago, a preparatory for Harvard
university. The same curriculum is
available in public high schools.
Mrs. Young also had information
that Mildred Loeb, the daughter of
the school board head, has attended
the St. Mary's-in-the-Woods private
school near Terre Haute, Ind.
Both Hamilton and Mildred Loeb
attended puolic schools tp the gram
mar grades. It was after the gram
mar grades that their father took
them from public schools and placed
them in private schools.
So Loeb's statement Is strictly true
that all of his children have attend
ed public schools.
And at the same time the impres-
sion left by Mrs. Young that Jake y
Loeb sends his children to private
schools is also correct "
