Chevy Chase Citizens’ Asso
ciation Almost Unanimously
Against School Plan.
Disapproval of the adoption of the
"platoon system” In the public schools
of the District was expressed by both
school officials and private cltlxena at
a meeting of the Chevy Chase Citi
zens’ Association in the B. V. Brown
School last night. Although the as
sociation refused officially to go on
record regarding the system. Imme
diately after adjournment a stand
ing vote was taken which showed
that only two persons In the- whole
assemblage were in favor of Its adop
It was pointed out the the system
held an especial interest to the citi
zens of Chevy Chase, as there had
been much talk of Installing It in the
E. V. Brown School.
Stephen K. Kramer, principal of
Central High School, when called
upon to express his views regarding
the system, said that such a system
is now in use in the Central High
School, and it is not satisfactory. In
enlarging upon this statement he told
how the teachers at Central have to
teach a part of the students while
others are out at lunch.
“We begin classes in the morning
with about 2.000 pupils.” he said, “and
about 11 o'clock another 1.000 come
In that have not been to school all
that day. We then have to send
about 1.000 of the first 2,000 out to
eat while we teach the last 1.000.
Later wo bring in the 1,000 at lunch
and send out another 1,000. Finally,
after we have
way as far as possfble we have to
squeeae in and sit tight during the
last hour or so of the school day."
Besides-the crowded conditions, he
pointed out that with the platoon
system, the teacher does not get the
close contact with the Individual
student which, he. said is essential
to the best Instruction.
Frank C. Daniel, principal of Tech
nical High School, agreed with Mr.

Kramer and also pointed out other
disadvantages of the platoon system.
Others who spoke in opposition to the
system were Miss M. E. Given, prin
cipal of the E. V. Brown School; Miss
M. If. Berry, assistant principal of the
same school; Milton Fairchild and
Miss Frances Fairly, principal of
the Dark View School, where the pla
toon system is now used, and Col. P.
M. Anderson, president of the Chevy
Chase Parent-Teacher Association,
spoke in favor of the system. In re
ply to them, however, school officials
and citizens agreed that the Park
View School was a fine school, but de
clared it is probable that It would
be much better if it had a seat for
every child and, accordingly did not
have to use the platoon system.
James T. Lloyd, president of the
board of education, and Dr. Frank W.
Ballou, superintendent • of schools,
were among those present at the
meeting. The system discussed Is
now under consideration of a special
committee of the board of education.
