Investigation of a wtdenlng difference j of opinion among members of the Hoard of Kdticatlon us to the results of the 1 operation of the fiary vocational school plan under tho direction of Supt. William Wirt of Onry. Ind., disclosed yesterday I the fact that the contract between Kupt. Wirt and Now York city, through the Mayor and tho Comptroller, by which Mr. Wirt was to receive MQ.Aftfl a year for one week's work here a month, has not yet been elgned "for technical rea sons." Supt. Wirt has had a free hand with his work In two public schools alnce , November 1 last year. Hlnre his coming certain members of the Uonrd of Education, Including eov eral district superintendents, three or four school principals and at least one associate superintendent, havo visited Gary and have reported their findings to President Thomas W. Churchill. The report of Associate Superintendent Ed ward I). Shallow sioverely criticising the "experiment" and the Gary euperln- ' tendent'e J 10,000 a year ealary hauls 110,000 a year for a quarter of n year's work wns published In The Sun yes terday. More than half a dozen other reports made by tho visitors to Oary nre now In the hnnds of the vocational school committee of the board for con-( slderatlon atvl recommendation. nonrrl Jtrnilipm I)tnppol.itrd. Many members of the hoard are disap pointed over the results of tho Oary plan. The board l divided as. to Its practicability. In January Mayor Mltehel visited Public School S9, which had been turned over to Supt. Wirt The Mayor, It Is said, found programmes and plans conspicuous and listened at tentively to Mr. Wlrt'a explanations. They told mostly of needs and tho Hoard of Education turned over to Supt. Wirt Public School 5, which had been re modelled for Supt. William L Kttlnger's already working "modified Gary plan." President Churchill when asked about the probability of the board' acting on the reporte now In committee said It win problematical. A number of people, he eatd, who attended the national depart ment superintendents' convention at Cln-, clnnatl three weeks ago visited (lary through personal Interest nnd In order I to see tho vocational school echemo ' working when things were not "on dreis parade." Thev were not unanimous In their reports to Mr Churchill, but the board members opposed to spending rlty money for the Oary experiment may find much encouragement In perusing them President Churchill Mid Will lie- Studied Further. "The reports of course will be studied Just as th" experiment Itself and Its results will be studied Nime who have visited Oary are sceptical, others seini to be pleased and others not at all favorably Impressed. There are mary good things In the plan, and tho whole matter will be etudll further , No member of the school board een yesterday would commit himself re garding the contract with Supt Wirt When Mr. Wirt came here last No vember file contract by which he waa to I get 110,000 a year for working about ' one week In a month was reported to have been npproved by the Itiard of Education, though at that time tho salary excited criticism. Supt Shallow said yesterday that while pttipt Wirt has been working out his scheme In two schools other sch .o'.s, started laet August, have been operating successfully on a modllbM (Vary plan, an extension of a plan projected by Supt K't'.nger In 1!'03. This plan, which has found much favor with the school board, was appllei In Public Schools i!4 and 95 In Manhattan, 5 and r, in Urooklyn When Supt Win came to New York Supt Kttlnger's plm wn already in ope-.ition. Mr Wirt refused to be re. sponsible for It, saying it was not h so be proceeded Independently w.th Pub lic School 5, receiving help fi-isci Supt Ettlnger, who asked for advice Supt Wirt has since had control of Public Schools 9 nnd 4S, which he Is con ducting on the reil Gary plan, as it operates In that city JUSTICE 00FF TAKEN ILL.
