Mrs. Edward B. 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
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.
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."
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.
