YD Courses in Schools
Not Practicable Now,
Dr. Gannon Asserts
The teaching of facts about
Venereal diseases in high schools,
although advisable, is not possible
because of the lack of proper teach
ers, Dr. James A. Gannon, physician
member of the Board of Education,
said today.
Dr. Gannon made his comment
following the recommendation by
the District Social Hygiene Society
Thursday that the subject should
be taught in the high schools and
was "expected" to be taught this
winter.
"I see no harm in putting the
boys and girls on guard," Dr. Gan
non commented. "If the subject is
presented in the proper manner, it
is a good thing."
>} He went on to explain that the
subject requires special teachers,
trained in the work, and the school
Ε stem does not have that type of
structor available. He recalled
that the Board of Education elimi
nated a sex course in the high
schools several years ago because
board members felt it was not being
ijtaught properly.
, · ' Installation of a course in venereal
diseases has not been considered by
the Boaid of Education, Dr. Gannon
added.
; Dr. S. Ross Taggart, head of the
Health Department's bureau of
r
venereal diseases, stated he backed
the stand of the Social Hygiene So
ciety.
Dr. Taggart said the facts on
venereal diseases should be taught
as part of a general health and hy
giene course, not by special lectur
ers. We said that more than 3,000
teen-agers in the District were in
fected with either syphilis or gonor
rhea in the early stages.
.The Health Department could
provide lecturers and films on the
subject, Dr. Taggart stated, but he
did not think that was the way to
handle the instruction.
I Col. Birch Bayh, head of the phys
ical education and health départ
ement of the white schools, said he
' was in favor of a course which would
take up the facts of venereal dis
eases. If such a course is recom
mended to the school superintendent
and the Board of Education, the
advice of the Social Hygiene Society
on the proper way to present it
would be sought, he added.
Georgia Ave. Repair
Bids Under Study
The Highway Department has tak
en under advisement bids for four
Washington contractors for repairs
to the asphalt pavement and con
crete base of the east side of Geor
gia avenue.
Lowest of the bids, opened yes
terday at the District Building, was
that of the Wilmoth Paving Co.,
Ί
First and Ρ streets S.E., which of
fered to do the job for $173,938.25.
Highway Director H. C. White
hurst said, however, he would post
pone action on a contract until he
gets a look at bide for the purchase
of bulk asphalt and for repairing
the west side of the street. These
bids are to be opened next week.
McQuire & Rolfe, Inc., with a bid
of $110.340. was the lowest of three
firms to do general repair work on
District roads, alleys and sidewalks.
Bias also were opened yesterday
for construction of a storm sewer in
the Deanewood section, along Lee
street, between Forty-ninth street
and Fiftieth place N.E., and along
Fiftieth place, between Lee street
and Sheriff road NX
The low bid, one of $12,027 by the
Leo Butler Co., was more than 22
per ,cent below the District's estimat
ed cost for the job, according to a
spokesman for the Sewer Division.
Police Trial Board Fines
Luebkerf $90 on 2 Charges
The Police Trial Board yesterday
•fined Pvt. Malcolm R. Luebkert of
No. 2 police precinct $90 for failing
to patrol his beat and to telephone
into the precinct while on duty. He
had pleaded guilty to both charges.
The board exonerated the officer
!on a third charge, falling to proceed
ί to his beat on foot, on which he
had pleaded not guilty.
Maj. Robert J. Barrett, police su
perintendent, announced the board's
findings late yesterday.
Lt. Chester C. Oouldman and
Corpl. Richard S. Best, both of No.
2 precinct, testified they found Pvt.
Luebkert asleep in his automobile
in the rear of the 1100 block of First
streèt N.E. early in the morning of
September 14. They said the patrol
man told them he felt tired and ill
and had gone to the precinct to get
his car and get some rest.
Assistant Corporation Counsel
William Cheatham prosecuted the
case. The board comprised Inspector
Clement P. Cox. chairman; Assistant
Corporation Counsel Stanley De
Neale and Capt. Albert I. Bullock of
No. 13 precinct.
Policeman Hit With Bottle;
Suspect Is Captured
A policeman was struck on the
head with a beer bottle last night
while stopping a fight in a Ninth
street restaurant and the man he
was attempting-to arrest escaped in
the confusion.
Several hours later police charged

and arm cuts. The man was booked !
as Theodore Mitchell Gray, 22, of
