NEW BRITAIN DAILY HERALD, 'THURSDAY, JULY 14, 1927.
LIVELY DEBATE ON Education Board Selects Frank lin for Clinton St. Structure , Member of the school committee are In disagreement as to the ad ; vlsablllty of namlnr schools after local celebrities and argued their :, views at length toward the close of . yesterday's meeting. The discussion came after a spe cial committee on school names had recommended, through Committee man Joseph M. Halloran, that the new school soon to be built on Clin ton street be name'd in honor of ' Benjamin Franklin. Mr. Halloran . said many names Including those of New Britain men had been suggest ed and after careful consideration ,1he recommended title was agreed upon by the committee. Committeeman James J. Butler, ' who had suggested the name of Benjamin A. Hawley, late manufac turer, park commissioner and bene factor of numerous institutions and individuals, told the committee he . would offer no objection having been informed that members of the sub- committee are in favor of naming another school building after Mr. Hawley. He introduced the discus sion of local names by remarking . that he was heartily in favor of so ..identifying buildings built by New Britain people with New Britain .funds, and pointed out that 11 of the present buildings now carry the names of New Britain ngures ana ' three have "meaningless titles." In ' this last group was Included Central Junior High school, Walnut Hill .school and the Senior High school. The use of local names, he argued, Is an indication that previous com mittees were of like mind. "I would like to see a school nam ed in honor of the man whose name .1 suggested," the committeeman de : clared. "But, If the committee sees fit to select other local names, I will not oppose it merely because the .name I urged wasn't selected. That "should be the stand of all members Vo this committee." The last remark, which was taken as a. veiled thrust at another mem ; ber of the board, was not ampli- fled.' Committeeman William H. Day New Way to Relieve Tired, Aching Feet Did you know that you can In stantly take the sting out of burn ing tired feet by simply bathing I hem In hnt water to which von have added a little Sylpho-Nathol one teaspoonful to a quart; sore ness vanishes like magic! Swelling's reduced. This wonderfully soothing solution banishes corns, bunions and iallouses, too, and Is refreshing In the bath. Get Sylpho-Nathol at all dealers. . , went on record as heartily In favor of honoring local men whenever this can be done and the possibility of getting Into difficulty over psst deeds avoided. He laid stress upon the good works of Mr. Hawley and the many benefactions that figured in his will. Agreement with the previous speakers was voiced by Committee man Louis W. Toung. He would not favor giving the name of any living man to a building and might prefer to have a space of years elapse after the man's death before giving this honor, but on the general principle he Is In accord, he declared. Committeeman George LeWitt was opposed to local names. He pointed to the fact that many New Britain men have died in whose honor schools might be named but ' that this was not done. He cited several cases where men gave much of their time to educational purposes and because they were not financially able did not figure in public benefac tions. He expressed sentiments of friendship for the late Mr. Hawley. On motion of Committeeman Day it was voted to have the committee on names consider the re-naming of Central Junior High school, the Walnut Hill school and Senior High school. Changes In the boundaries of rhonl districts were accepted on recommendation of Supt. Stanley H. Holmes after several amendments proposed by Committeeman Toung had been included. The changes are made necessary by the construction of the Robert J. Vance school, and the changed location of the Abra ham Lincoln school. It was voted on recommendation of Chairman George W. Traut of the finance committee, to engage F. H. Lampson as an unassigned janitor at a salary of $30 a month. Mr. Lamp- son has been In the school depart ment's employ for more than 40 years and because of his advancing age will not be called upon for ac tive work. Refer Fire Insurance Project Recommendations of the common council committee on fire Insurance, asking that policies be redistributed on a more equitable basis and offer ing several other suggestions, were referred to the commutes on school fire Insurance, consisting of the finance committee and Mr. Day. That group is now studying tha matter of premiums and the possibility of the city carrying its own insurance. Chairman Patrick F. Kins suggested this arrangement, explaining that the matter should be acted upon by the committee now concerned with Insurance. The council committee's sugges tion that voting machines be insur ed under the blanket policy for the school in which they are housed, was met with the objection that the school board has no Insurable inter est in the machines. With regard to the committee's objection to the ab sence of vacancy permits, the board was informed this matter has been taken care of, as has also the ques tion of motion picture equipment In schools and a policy covering the Nathan Hale school annex. Contracts recommended by the committee on , school accommoda tions were approved without dis senting votes. Appointments were -woted as fol lowers: Miss Esther Beckwith, di rector of tests, $1,600: Miss Margar et Ryan, dental hygienlst, $27 a week up to January t, and $2 a week thereafter, and Miss Victoria Watt, $27 a week; Harold S.

Moody It was recommended that J. C. Moody, former assistant principal of the Senior High school be engaged as an unassigned teacher at a salary of $3,400 and that he be given a leave of absence. Mr. Moody in this way will complete 35 years of teach ing service and will be entitled to a state pension. He will, in the mean time, conduct his private school. It was voted to allow Miss Helen Whltmlre $75 for summer profes sional study. For the textbooks committee, Committeeman S. Gerard Casale recommended "Latin for Today," to be used in the Junior High school, and gave notice that "Child Library Readers," and "The Child's Own Way Series," will be recommended at the next meeting. , Mr. Casale, who was on a com mittee of the school board to con fer with the common council on a farm vegetable market reported that a site other than a school yard has been found.

For biting the nose and cheek of the woman of his heart, George Varavos, 29, of 240 West 116th street, may have to go to prison for seven and a half or even 15 years, and Vara vos does not think it is fair. Neither does his attorney, Joseph Hirsch field. On the other hand, Assistant District Attorney George F. Marry thinks it IS fair. And Mrs. Mary E. Ryan, who was bitten, thinks it is just fine. The fact of the case were fairly simple, as outlined before Judge Mancuso in general sessions yester day. Varavos and Mrs. Ryan were employed in the same restaurant. While Varavos was Just a counter man, Mrs. Ryan was a waitress. He took orders from her. Nevertheless, Varavos loved Mrs. Ryan. - Sometimes Varavos would say, "Ham and eggs ready; I love you;" sometimes it was, "Ham and spin ach; I love you." But Mrs. Ryan was apt to say things like "Beef and cab bage; be yourself;" and once she went so far as to say, "Three coffees. two black; shut up!" One day June 29 Varavos call ed on Mrs. Ryan at her apartment, 300 West 116th street. This evening Mrs. Ryan had not known Varavos was coming to call, and she was just going out with a friend, Agnes Calentrul, when he arrived. As soon as she saw Varavos, however, she decided soe Would go on out with Miss Agnes Calentrul anyhow. Varavos seized Mrs.' Ryan by the shoulders and bit her on the nose and on the Ciaek. She screamed and Patrolman Ledden arrested the man. Yesterday Varavos and his at torney admitted everything, but con tended that biting was not maiming it was merely assaulting, they said. The difference between the two is some fifteen years. Assistant District Attorney Marry, however, contended that Varavos was guilty of biting with intent to maim, and that this was the only charge on which he would accept a plea of guilty. At last Mr. Hirschfield saw the futility of further argument and ad vised his client to plead guilty to biting with intent to maim. The maximum penalty for this is fifteen years. The maximum penalty for as sault Is two and a half. Judge Mancuso indicated he was disposed to show leniency toward Varavos provided that Varavos agrees to pay the doctor's bills Mrs. Ryan said she had incurred in her efforts to have the teeth marks lift ed from her nose and cheek. Vara vos said that he would pay what he could, and the day of sentence was set for next Tuesday.
