Miss McBride was formerly a new

that Miss McBride declares she laid
the foundation of knowing how to

Miss Alice Deal, president of the
High School Teachers' Union, and Miss
Clara Stutz, president of the Grade
School Teachers' Union, told The
Times today that nearly 100 teachers
have Joined the unions since April 1.
Miss Deal and Miss Stutz attribute
the increase in membership almost
entirely to the determination of the
teachers to band together "for com
mon protection against the expressed
policy of the Board of Education."
Since the receipt of the Board of
Education letter refusing the teachers
a hearing, the application for mem
berships has been particularly great.
The teachers now pledged to oppo
sition of the board in its stand in
the case of Miss Alice Wood, sus
pended teacher, and in regard to the
teachers' demand for delineation of
their rights, now number over 1,000.
