4 NEW YORK SCHOO L SYSTEM CENSURED IYER R I Blame for Part Time and Other Evils Put on "Politi ' cal Control" of Board. ' A vacillating policy, ncgllgcnco of administration; coupled with much unsound legislation and political con . trol of tho Board of Education, Is held by tho Meyer commltteo rcsnon ttlblo for the deficiencies In tho city's school system, In a special report to tho Legislature. The report, which shows a 150 per cent, increase- In part time In the last four years, and 7,353 uncorrected vio lations of flro prevention rules, many of them hazardous, says: "Tho administration of tho public schools of tho city is and for years has been weak and Inefficient, and does not meenuro up to tho reasonable requirements of the school children or to tho expectations nnd desires of the people of the city or of the State." It Is found, despite the openlnp df sixteen new schools last full, that there are 115,131 children on part time, nnd 105,750 subjected to tho disadvantages of .tho double session. Tart tlmo In the elementary schools Increased from 34.163 In 1917, to ,61,212 In OctolK'.r, 1921, whllo in tho high schools It jumped In the sanio period from 1,700 to 33,892. Tho committee finds that responsi bility fur the matters complained of "rests' primarily on the system of making purely political appointments to the Hoard of Education." It Is estimated that tho cost of re moving the flro hazards would be ubout $4,500,000. "Some of the violations," says the repor. "aro serious. a3 for example, stairways that aro not Inclosed with lit" anil smoke-proof partitions and not provldod with self-closing doors: Interior lire alarm systems that do not work; wooden and not sclt-closlni: fireproof doors along the line of exit stairways: no hand flro extinguishers, and storage of dangerous Inllammabln materials lu non-llroproot roouu or coinpartmelts." Commenting on tho cause of part time, tho committee says that from Jan. 1. IMS. to Dec. 5. 1921. only twenty-two new buildings or addi tions with a capacity of only 21,377 wero opened, as compared with forty four new buildings In the preceding four years, rapacity 52,8 17 The commltteo finds that after tho war there was a fifteen months' lolay In starting building operations, only four months of which could be at tributed to tho ruling of tho 1 . . . .

"Tho unfortunnto coitdltlon." the report reads, "was only partly duo to lack of appropriations. Exasperating delays nnd shifting policies ore equally responsible." I WOUNDED VETERANS !
