which the Olrls Industrial School was
placed In charge ot a matron. Mrs.
Charlotte Dye, as matron, has been
'so successful that the women feel
their faith in the plan ot displacing
men as managers of such institu

j, Attorney General Hogan recently
gave an opinion that to place women
In charge ot such' Institutions was a
violation of the constitution. The
boa 'd of administration, however, has
tak?n no heed of the opinion.. Gov
ernor Harmon, himself u lawyer ot
high Btandlng, and other attorneys
have said they thought the appoint

an Institution, did not liuolve a Rela
tion of the constitution.

Bedford, no men are employed, either
as officials or laborers, tne engine

WhH le Important .For
Would Have A Central Station
A Law To The Effect Is
Possible In Future
Columbus, 0 April 1 One of the
urgent needs of the near futuie is a
wireless telegraph station in every
county seat of the state for emer
gency use In case of flood or other
catastrophe. This was the declara
tion of General John C. Speaks, di
recting the operation of military
forces engaged In the work of rescue
and restoration of order in the strick
"A central station, at Columbus,
maintained by the commonwealth,
would place the entire Buckeye state
In communication with alt danger
points," said General Speaks, "and at
tend means of warning when other
communication is Impossible." The
statement was made by General
Speaks after bo had received a mes
sage from Irontou as to the situation
In that city.
A plucky telephone opeintor rowed
many tulles and waded swollen
st teams for several miles more until
he reached n good telephone wire and
talked to General Speaks, giving him
a icport of conditions. As General
Speaks pointed out, no smnll part of
the flood trouble has, been to get Into
communication with, the beleaguered
towns to ascertain their needs.
The message to General Speaks
was a demand for troops and supplies.
Even before it came, steps had been
taken, and the Logan and Athens com
panies were on their way over the
Hocking Valley. They will have a
seven-mile march from the end ot the
rallioad lino which is still out of wat
er und the flooded districts.
"Our trouble in handling men nud
supplies has been doubled by the ex
tnmtly poor means of communication
that the Hood left, ' said General
Speaks, "The cuse of Irontou is typi
cal. Our communication with Ports
mouth una been cut off. Had the state
a wireless station theie w'o should
have been nble to be In lomiuiinlca-
tlou at ull times, Then, too, with the
wliolt'38 people lu the flooded towns
could huo bad warning after other
means of communication was cut off
and many lives might lmo been sav
ed." Senator .1. fi. Dollteon of Hocklnu
County jestetday said he proposed of
fering a bill to establish at least ono
wliole'ss station in every county.
