out by Att'y Myer Stein as argument
why the federation should be de
stroyed. Today is the big day in the school
board-Teachers' Federation scrap.
The board trustees will "meet this af
ternoon and the resolution to oust
the teachers' union will be put before
If the ouster is passed the teachers
have two chances to hold their place
in the schools and still organize. One
is a court order supporting their
claim that the board has no right to
say what organizations a teacher
may belong to.
The other is the matter of appoint
ment of new trustees. If Mayor
Thompson in filling the vacancies left
by those trustees whose terms have
run out places persons who favor the
federation on the board, the action
which is expected to day can be re
scinded. Favorable action from the mayor
is expected by labor. Mayor Thomp
son, John Fitzpatrick, Edward Nock
les and Victor Olander of the Chi
cago Federation of Labor got togeth
er yesterday. The labor men asked
that favorable trustees be appointed.
Margaret Haley saw Senator Can
aday of the Baldwin school Investiga
tion committee yesterday. She told
him of the proposal to oust the fed
eration and Canaday came out
against it A fair trial for the feder
ation was the least that could be ex
pected, he declared.
