WE NEED RECALL OF MAYOR
AND SCHOOL BOARD HEAD
Jacob Loeb, president of the school
board, in an address at the opening
of a new school boasted that ne had
not been above the fourth grade in
school, and the Rev. J. L. Garrison,
pastor of Mt. Greenwood M. E.
church, used that boast as part of
the text of his sermon Sunday.
"What we need," said thu Rev.
Garrison, "is the recall for both the
mayor and the president of the board
"The superintendent of schools of
New York city was certainly right
when he said that the Loeb rule was
ctupid. It betrays hayseediness of
the rankest type. Pres. Loeb came
out to the new Sexton school near
the Univ. of Chicago to the dedica
tion of the building some months
ago and in his speech boasted that
ho had not been above the fourth
grade. That is a nice example to
set for the children!
"The board of education should be
composed only of persons of some
degree of education. As it is now,
our chemistry courses are planned
and our chemistry tests selected by
men, some of whom could not per
form a single experiment in qualita
tive analysis without running a risk
of blowing out their brains if 'they
have any to blow out.
"Give Bill Thompson six months of
rope and he would make obsolete the
very word merit, the most impor
tant word in our whole progressivo
development In his short adminis
tration he has done more in this re
gard than all the previous Chicago
mayors combined. But not content
with this and vilifying some of our
valuable aldermen in language far
from decent, recently he has turned
for amusement to scattering postal
cards here and there about town. I
received one concerning the Edel
weiss Gardens .and trust he enjoyed
reading my reply.
"There is some class to this mayor.
If ever our city needed the mayoral
ty recall it needs it now."
