Manifestly the responsibility to decide the present controversy over
the introduction introdu tion of o f moralbllining f fmoral moral twin tin1ng ing upon on a distinctly religious founda ¬
tion into the curriculum of ti f the public schools rests finally na11y with the
authorities in control of the schools
Those authorities are the Board of o Education J Jan and an d the District Com ¬
missioners especially that member of the Board of Commissioners wh who
supervisees the schools directly
The rheauthorities authorities ivill do wisely in the opinion of The Times Tim toob to ob ¬
tain tam the fullest possible expression of opinion from rom the parents parentsof of the
pupils before b fore they act i 7
To that that end this paper suggests a practical and entirely en tirely feasible fe fe ible
poll of o f the th parents
Let the board boardprepar prepare a circular letter of inquiry In quiry and through the

The Times rimes yesterday ye sterday sterdaysuggesting suggesting that
the only true way of arriving at the
peoples position on the matter matteris Is to

That th the suggestion is considered a
good and highly efficient one Is shown
by the opinions pu published blished in these col oi ¬
umns umns today
The editorial yesterday not only onbsug sug ¬
gested ges ted the poll of the parents but
also nlsopointe pointed d out that the best way to
secure this poll would be b for the Board oard
of Education to send circular letters

This plan is favored by four of the

Believes Circular Better
Than Letters Lett rs to Papers
Mrs lrs Henry Henr L West member of o the
Board of Education
The suggestion made ma deye5tcrda yesterday by b
The Times that parents should be beap ap
pealed to in In tho matter m atter of religious religio us
i train tra in ing in the schools is to my mind
i the only direct way of obtaining the
consensus of opinion from the people to
I whom it means most
I believe the circulation c1rculatIonof of such an
I Inquiry recommended by The Times
will do more to get the views of the peo ¬
ple than all the le letters tters which are aredally daily
sent to the papers As S a a rule parents
do not care Care to rush into print even for
j so momentous a question as the one now
under discussion They would feel no
hesitancy In expressing their views
through such a means as The Times
suggests and I Ibelleve believe It would prove
a great help helpin In solving the problem
Parker Says Opinions
Should Be Spontaneous
E Southard Parker president of the
Metropolitan Citizens National Bank
and a member of the Board of Educa ¬
I IIike like the general tone of the editor ¬
ial but I dont think the Board of Ed ¬
ucation ucationought ought to send out such a aclr cir ¬
cular as Is suggested there An expres ¬
sion si n from the parents arents would of course
be desirable but It should be spontan ¬
Eons ous and not be called out by communi ¬
cations from the Board of Education
Only Way to Really Learn
Opinion Opinionof of the Public
Dr Richard Kingsman member of the
Board of Education
When Wr hejt I read yesterdays csterdayseditorial editorial It
came to me that such a plan as The
Times suggests Is the only way to really
learn the opinion of the public ubllc When
one considers the great number of chil ¬
dren ren attending the District public
schools it it ia iread1Jy readily seen that their
parents must make up a large part of
the population of Washington Inas ¬
much as the parents have not been Heard
from to any great extent I believe that
it would be well to learn just what they
think of the Introduction of orreIIgion religion into
the schools and in this way the right
course may properly be outlined I am
in unity with The IheTfmes Times In its sugges ¬
tion and believe Its good results should
the idea be adopted will make them ¬
selves apparent appare nt I believe parents are
anxious to express their views In the
matter and a circular such as The Th
Times ljmesproposes proposes will wHlarlOId afford them every
opportunity to Indorse or reject the
Idea of religious training in the schools
