SCHOOL CHANGES URGED BY CITIZENS Rhode Island Avenue Asso ciation Asks Appointment of i Miss Abbie M. Sisson. Devoting most of their meeting in the j Bherwood Presbyterian Sunday school j hall to school matters, the Rhode Island Avenue Citizens' Association last night made three requests concerning school buildings and grounds and one concern- i ing the teaching personnel, while an j attendance contest for a cash prize to be awarded one of the schools in the j community was inaugurated. On motion of E. G. Sievers, chairman of the school committee, the organi zation passed a resolution urging the Board of Education to appoint Miss Abbie M. Sisson, principal of the Lang don School and a teacher at that insti tution for the last 35 years, adminis trative principal of the new Langdon 16-room school building when com pleted. School Addition Asked. The citizens joined with the Parent- Teacher Associations of the Langdon, Woodridge and John Burroughs Schools in requesting the construction of an eight-unit addition to the Woodridge School, to include an assembly hall and gymnasium. Other resolutions passed recommended the razing of the present Langdon School to afford more playground space as soon as the new building is finished and the proper landscaping of the grounds around the Woodridge and John Burroughs Schools. Each member attending the meeting teas permitted to vote for one of the three schools in the community which are competing for a $25 prize to be j awarded the school having the greatest j number of votes at the end of the year, i Although many criticisms of the po- j lice of the twelfth precinct for failing ; tft arrest speeders in the neighborhood were voiced, the association went on record as favoring an increase in pay for police and firemen now classified in the lower grades. Surprise Program Planned. Mrs. Eppa L. Norris, chairman of the meeting’s committee, announced the first of four community meetings would be held at the John Burroughs School June 5. when a “surprise pro gram.'’ given entirely by local talent, would be oresented. The citizens were entertained last night by Mrs. D.' H. Pratt, soloist; Mrs. C. E. *Channing. pianist, and Mrs. Charles R. Speaker, dramatic reader. Charles Swift, Mrs. Sarah B. Roy, D. C. Williamson and Maj. Edward A. Goldman were admitted to membership. WHOLESALERS TO MEET IN CONVENTION HERE William Jutterworth Will Wel come Delegates at Chamber of Commerce Building.
