LAWYER HAS HEART FOR THE
TEACHERS' PENSION CHANGES
Alfred Urion, chief counsel for
Armour & Co., was a speaker in
Springfield yesterday before the
house municipalities committee.
Urion asks amendment of the pen
sion laws, so that control of the pen
sion board of the Chicago public
school teachers will be in the'hands
of the school board. As the state law
now provides, control is in the hands
of the 8,000 school teachers of Chi
cago, who annually' hold an election
under the Australian ballot system
and choose a majority of the trus
tees of the board.
Urion is a director of the so-called
Chicago Public School "league,"
known as a submarine with a crew
picked by the Illinois Manufacturers'
ass'n, school land lease beneficiaries,
building contractors and pension
fund hopefuls, having .as its main ob
jective the torpedoing of the Chica
go Teachers' Federation.
Ida L.' Fufsman and Nano T.
Hickey for the Teachers' Federation
urged legislators to let the teachers
retain- their present power of voting
for whoever they want to run their
pension system. Since 1895 the re
serve fund for teachers' pensions has
grown to $1,614,670.43 (Sept. 1,
1916). Of this, $955,000 is money
paid in by teachers, the board of ed
ucation's share being $658,687.42. As
nearly $3 has been paid in by teach
ers from their salaries as against
every $2 paid in by .the 'board of edu
cation, the teachers put up the ar
gument that it's their money and
there should be no change in present
methods of control.
