In substantial agreement with the
changes In the school law urged by tho
Commissioners, with the exception of
the proposed appointment of the super

unique position as compared with action
by other civic bod'es. A report pf tho
committee on education favoring the
transfer of the appointing power of the
Hoard of Kducntlon fiom the District
Supreme Court to the Commissioners,
the reduction of the number of the
board from nine to five members, and
the appointment of the sunerlnftndent J
or schools by the noarrt or Ketuc-uioi,
was ndonted after considerable discus
sion, nnd a resolution ,',ns adopted
transmitting the report of the commit
tee to' the Commissioners nnd to Con
gress. The report stipulates that the teach
ers and all other school employes shall
bo "effectively 'protected from the In
fluence of politics, either partv or muni
cipal." pnd favors the appointment of
the teachers by, the Hoard of Education,
ns at present.
Prof. H. C. Gore", chairman of the
committee, presented the report, and
stated thnt tho committee had attend
ed tho hearings before the House Com
mltleo. arid had carefully considered
Commissioner nrownlow's statement be
