Russ Tells of Efforts Woman's Club Made for Betterment. To the Editor of The Stir: The subject of school conditions in Washington has for some time past been of keenest interest in all sections of the city, but special attention was called in your edition of Thursday last to the deplorable state existing in Petworth. Now I have no quarrel with a large part of the subject-matter of that article; indeed, some of the statements are mild as compared with the facts, but as this article was given so prominent a place I beg to protest the clause which states that the "residents of retworifl, However, are uut aviuywuing." Let me assure your readers that these residents of Petworth are not so supine as that statement would imply. They are complaining most bitterly that they must, for even one more day, endure existing conditions. The school committee of the Petworth Woman's Club worked all last year before the committees of Congress, the board of education and the Commissioners of the District urging the increased appropriation necessary for the building of the addition to the school'which is now under way and which cannot possibly be adequate for present needs. Treatment Rather Cavalier. These women were compelled to submit to rather cavalier treatment from some members of the congressional committees who insisted that statements of conditions must be ex, aggerated. They were urged to visit the school and see for themselves, and it is a matter of record that when they did finally make this visit Senator Dillingham stated that of all the schools visited that in Petworth was in the most deplorable condition. At the recent public hearing of civic bodies before the board of education the president of the woman's club, Mrs. W. A. Wlnkelhaus, spoke for Petworth, having previously, at the request of the board, filed a brief incorporating some of the needs of the school. This brief contained an urgent request for the purchase of the entire property between the present building and Georgia avenue for playgrounds; that the assembly shall be built at the earliest possible date; that one of the portables (No. 7) be condemned as unfit for use and removed, and that the present old building be wired for electricity, attention being called to %uc invi, iuai incru arc aofioiuieiy no lighting: facilities in the building, i and on dark days the eyes of both pupils and teachers are dangerously strained. Now does it seem that the residents of Petworth "are not complaining"? Alive to Conditions. Again, the action of the Petworth Citizens' Association in recommending that a site be purchased north of Petworth for the building of a twenty-fourroom schoolhouse would indicate that this association is alive to condition* This recommendation, if complied with, is the logical solution of overcrowded conditions in this vicinity and will meet with the hearty support of the entire community. We believe that the superintendent of schools and the board of education are doing all in their power to remedy the disgraceful conditions in the District, and it is hoped that the District Commissioners will submit to Congress estimates as they are prepared by these school officials. Your article also quotes Mr. Jesse Suter on the subject of school questions . in Petworth. This is an errdr, as Mr. . Suter was some time ago elected to the ' presidency of the Takoma Park Citizens' Association, and is no longer .a citizen of Petworth. You have thos placed both communities in rather an anomalous position, as the president of one community association can hardly consistently have jurisdiction over ?if?Wr>nl matUiNi in another rnmmnnitv. Dr. B&llou has accepted the invitation of the Petworth Womans' Club and an early date will be named for his visit to Petworth, when he will be enabled to meet all of our citizens and see for himself that we are a reasonable people, but at the -same time sufficiently progressive to wish for and work for comfortable, well lighted rooms and plenty of play space for our children . during their school years. MRS. EDWARD B. BUSS. SAYS HIS ENEMIES ABE 'COWARDS, CROOKS, LIARS' Head of International Pressmen Hakes Vehement Denial of Charges Preferred by "Outlaws." KNOXVTL.DE. Tenn., October 5.?Offering to place his resignation in the hands of the convention If his enemies' charges are found correct, George D. Berry, president of the International Printing Pressmen and Assistants' Union of North America, made a spirited defense of the policies pursued by his administration during the past four years at the afternoon session of the twenty-eighth convention of the union, which convened at Pressmen's Home yesterday for a six-day session. "If any one can prove that I ever stole a single penny from the international union I will give you all I have and resign as president," he declared. Continuing, he said: "This Insidious attack which has been made upon me is unjust. These crooked rascals who have precipitated this crooked charge are liars, every one of them. They are cowards. crooks and liars," he said as he reached the climax of his scathing I denunciation of those "outlaw" members of the union who have attacked the international officers through the courts in suits now pending in the federal courts of Chicago and Greenville and Knoxville. Tenn. From Indications President Berry has the convention with him. and there appears to be only the faintest possibility that the flght started by the Chicaco Pressmen's Union. No. 3, will result In the ousting of the officers and the vindication ci the "outlaws." WILL PLEAD INSANITY TO SAVE CARL WANDERER Defense Indicates Plan in Case of Army Officer Charged With Triple Murder. CHICAGO, October 5.?Completion of a Jury was expected today in the trial of Carl Wanderer, former army lieutenant, who ia charged with the murder of his wife, their unborn child and an unidentified stranger on the night of June 21. Three Jurors were tentatively accepted yesterday after sixteen prospects had been examined. Wanderer watched the proceedings with apparent unconcern. . The defense will make its plea on hereditary insanity, it has been indicated. Wanderer confessed, police say, shortly after the' murder, that he hired the unidentified man to stage a fake holdup, in order that he might put his wife out of the way. He said he shot his wife and then killed the stranger in order that there would bo no witnesses against him. Tracing the number on an army pistot found on the stranger's body caused police to believe Wanderer was guilty,,, as the pistol was found to have been one loaned to the former lieutenant by his brother.
