One more kick from the clerk.
Brave fellow. The man turned his
empty gray eyes at him and lifted
himself from the pavement. With
dragging feet and drooping arms, he
zigzagged down the street.
An amused crowd watched the hu
man failure move on.
Then it scattered and forgot.
Such is life! H. M. C.
NEW YORK BANKS SANCTIONED
BLACKLIST, IS CHARGE
Washington, July 26. That the
British blacklist of American firms
was not published until the approval
of several large banking institutions
of New York had first been secured,
was the statement made to the
United Press today on good author
ity. This fact is considered responsible
for there not being more firms on
the list. The bankers took the stand
when the matter was being discussed
that only those houses having a di
rect trading relation with Germany
and whose business was primarily of
a military value to the German gov
ernment should be boycotted.
When the question of the effect of
the blacklist on South American
trade was reached, the banks re
ferred to were convinced that the
U. S. would profit by the boycott
rather than suffer injuries. Many
of the blacklisted firms, the British
officials pointed out, have been main
taining Germany's trade relations
with South America and were in a
position to do so only because they
were off the blacklist

CLEMENSEN CALLS FOR FAR
PLAY NOTHING DOING
Dr. Peter C. Clemensen, who has a
long record of fiercely partisan at-,
tacks on the teaching of religion in
the public schools, yesterday broke
away from the Jake Loeb majority
he has generally spoken for and vot
ed with in the campaign to destroy
the Teachers' Federation.
Pres. Loeb has the question put to
him bluntly by Clemensen whether
sweeping dismissal of teachers with
out notice or trial on June 27 is go
ing to stand.
"Does the rule hold for the effi
cient as well as the inefficient?" he
asked. To-which Loeb replied:
"The 68 teachers failed of election.
That's all I know about it."
Clemensen pleaded for fair play.
He told Loeb: "I've been one of your
cabinet," recalled old associations
and ci' 3d support he had given "to
Jake "eb. Then he asked that a
committee of five be appointed to
hold hearings during the summer
where any dismissed teachers. could
appear and deeper reasons might be
found why teachers marked "excel
lent" and "superior" by the superin
tendent have been dropped. Then he
"I know a teacher who graduated
from the public schools, the Normal
school and received efficient marks
after she began to teach. Then one ,
principal turned her down. I can't
get it into my heart or brain to feel
that it is right to turn her down with
out giving her a chance to make
good. In all human kindness I
would move for the appointment of
a committee of five to take up -this
matter and hear the teachers who
want to be heard."
' This demand was evaded on mo
tion of Trustee Holpuch for adjourn
ment, who argued:
"Dr. Clemensen wanted to get this
speech out of his system. Now that
he has done so I insist on a roll call,"
