GOOD START FOR THE
SYMS-EATON EXHIBIT ruf, : - County School Board Appropriates $300 for the School Display at Jamestown Exposition. SMALL REPRODUCTION OF ACADEMY County Superintendent J. M. Willis State That the Special Meeting of the Board on Saturday Was Not Called for the Purpose of Taking Up the Vaccination Matter. The School Hoard of Elizabeth CH.V county, hits appropriated the sum of S300 for iho i/ohool exhibit at the Jamestown Exposition. The unique feature of the appropriation lies la the fact that the money will be paid from the Intoresl of Hie Syins-Hnton funds, from whi oh fclio firs I public school in America was started. Tito exhibit of the local schools will therefore have the added Interest of having been created by the funds that brought out the IIret free school. It is also expected liint tin- exhibit will Include a miniature reproduction of the llrst Byms-Bnton academy. Mr. Willis Talks. County Superintendent of Schools John M. Willis stated yesterday that the announcement Hint the meet Inn of the school hoard was called on Saturday for the specific purpose of taking action In the light against vaccination In the FpX Hill schools was erroneous. Mr. Willis said I lie board was assembled for the purpose of taking up the school exhibit nnd that the vaccination proposition was brought to his attention after lie had 'trailed tln> apodal session of Ihe board. "The idea <>f Iho school board," said Mr- Willis, "Una al? ways boon lo carry out any rccotm, ' mendatlon from the board of healt'h. The atlv|sabi)lty of the suspension of the law in Pox Mill came through the hoard of health and the school .hoard acled entirely upon their rec? ommendation." Considerable criticism has been made of the health board and Iho school hoard for suspending the law In Kox Hill nud enforcing It In otlwr districts. The patrons of the Little Bethel School wer.- strongly opposed! to vncclnhtlon, but unless the board changes Its' action quite a number of the pupils In that RClhpol will he dis? missed or else bare their arms to vaccination. 'Under the state law the school hoard has Hie authority lo enforce the vaccination law In Nie school nnd to suspend It If it so desires. The Bethel school people contend that there is no justice in the n. li? ter to allow Fox Hill to so without vaccination ami dismiss ihelr child dren unless ihoy are vaccinated, The hoard of health Is accused of the Winter Overcoats & Suite fire doing A r y'mg at these Tremendously Reduced Prices.
