Matawan Man Gives His Ideas
on Subject of Much In
terest
Just at the present time the New
Jersey State Teachers' Association is
holding the attention of a great many
people of this state not only those con
nected with the schools, but the gen
eral public as well. The association is
divided Into two factions, one known
as the Insurgents and composed of
teachers from Perth Amboy, New
Brunswick and Camden and those
from the upper portion of the state
and known as the regulars.
The insurgents are on record as be
ing against the tactics and regime
of Miss Elizabeth A. Allen, as secre
tary of the state Teachers' Kettrement
! Fund, and stand for adequate salaries
I for all teachers and for the safe
sound and sane pension gystpm in
stead of the Interlocking systems now
i In vogue and which have been found
i to be far from financially safe by
j investigation of actuaries.
I In order to obtain an idea as to
what a new pension law should be
like to be safe and sane, an EVENING
i NEWS reporter obtained the follow
ing Interview from Professor Frank,
Howard Lloyd, supervisor of schools
of this city, principal of schools si*
and eight and a former president of
the New' Jersey State Teachers Asso
ciation Professor Lloyd is being men
tioned as a candidate for state sena
tor next year and there is a possibll
| lity that he will have something to
do with future laws and for this rea
son is well able to speak on the sub
ject:
“Ves, one safe and sane pension law
sounds all right, but safe and sane
for whom? It might be safe and sane
for one and not for another. It should
be safe and gone for all teachers for It
is supposed to be In their interest that
the law Is to be enacted ,
"I do not pretend to be able to frame
t law that would be able to sctand all
the tests of an actuarial Investiga
tion any more than the commission
has been able to up to this time, but
I believe dt can be done. I think the
Pension Commission has done good
work so far as it has gone but I do not
believe it has yet gone to the bottom
of the subject and I doubt the wis
dom of passing a law this winter un
less we are absolutely sure it Is going
to settle our difficulties. In one of its
reports the commission recommends
that a further exhaustive Investigation
and stud\ be made of the entire nrob
|1 in' tochers’ pensions and annui
ties for tlie purpose ol determining a
i more scientific and just
distribution of the costs and benefits.
I'jn.s ,s in accord with my views for
I do not think that point has been
] reached yet. Neither do I think any
1 law ought to be enacted this winter
that will in any way affect-the state
pc.tslon law. I think the whole prob
lem lies with the retirement fund law
and I think the question of making .
actually sound shoud be considered
entirely apart from the pension law at
tlds time."
"I do not. and never have, believed
in the compulsory feature of the law
as it stands today. J do not heliete
it is either fair or legal to compel us
to pay our money into a concern for
nineteen years eleven months and
twenty-nine days without being enti
tled to any protection In that time or
getting any return for our money at
the end of that time if we leave the
profession no matter for what reason.
Neither do I think it fair to be com
peted to pay for twenty years or any
other length of time if we either do
not get insurance protection or get
our money back if we leave the pro
fession. I would advocate a compul
sory clause provided a teacher could
get her money back with interest
whenever she retired, for whatever
reason and I think teachers, all, would
favor this idea.
It is absolutely untrue that any
teacher gets two pensions or can get
two pensions under existing laws The
most cursory examination into the
subject will reveal that to any one.
Some one has been trying to fool the
taxpayers at the expense of the teach
ers. We can get one pension after
thirty-five years of service. It is pos
sible to get a retirement annuity at
the same time if one happens to be
hal fdead at the end of the thirty
five year period, but that retirement
annuity, please understand comes to
us out of our own savings and is no
concern of the taxpayeror of any one
else. Cartalnly no one can object to
our investing our money in camou
flaged insurance (especially when
compelled) or in any other insurance,
no matter if we do get n pension be
slies I assume that it is known that
the supreme court decided that the
retirement fund operated as disability
insuftnee.
“If the voters desire to take away
our pension, that is in their hands,
except as we may be able to control
enough votes to keep it. But the
question of keeping the pension on tho
statute books is s question for the
public to decide entirely without re
lation to the retirement fund law,
which concerns them financially only
to the extent of the expenses Tor ad
ministration largely made necessary
because of the state’s action in re
gards to certain features of the law.
"Frankly I do not believe the tax
payers think we are getting too much
when it is correctly explained to
them. Suppose the average salary La
be $700, just to take an amount at
random for the last five years, and
suppose a teacher entitled to both
pension and annuity, giving her 110
per cent of her average salary which
in this case would he $770. Is there
anyone who would publicly say that
thst is too much for any one to live on
• ’ Wv,o liss devoted at least
thlrtyv-fie years to the service of the
m state at the measly sal
aries paid, especially alien she has
contributed part of it herself? I have
more faith in the public than that and
I believe that such opinions as the
"double pension" are put forward by
person* who have either never studied i
the qusetion, or have viewed it with
the eyes of political expediency.
"If one law can be evolved that will
give us benefits which we get now,
and which we are entitlod to, if we
are to continue to contribute at the
same rate or more, well and good, but
I do not see it in sight now, and I fail
to see how we are to overcome the
mass of legal entanglements that
would be involved in a merger. Un
derstand I am not unqualifiedly op
posed to one law if it can now be made
fair to all and be constitutional, but I
know of no suoh law as vet.”
In answer to a question Mr. Lloyd1
said: "I believe the one best solution
for all future Ills of this kind Is ade
quate salaries, that pensions and an
nuities should not be allowed to take
the place of just salaries.”

Ordnance Claims Board Calls
Attention to Hardschips
Caused by Contractors
In view of the fact that claims filed;
with the Ordnance Gillespie Claims
Board show signs of profiteering by
certain contractors, and warnings
have been issued against this practice!
by the board, the following state-:
ment has been released for publica-;
tlon from the office of the board in
the Karttan building:
The Ordnance Board of the War
Department, which has offices in this!
city while engaged in appraising dam-1
ages to property due to the explosion.'
has called to the attention of the city
authorities, tlie hardships being
worked on various sufferers from this
calamity by certain contractors of
Perth Amboy and South Amboy. The
board placed a warning some time
ago in regard to this matter in thej
columns of this paper and other pa-i
pers, and this warning still appears
elsewhere In this Issue.
The board Is receiving almost daily
claims which show excesslvo over
estimates of damages coupled with
arbitrary charges made by certain
contractors for writing up these esti
mates or charges in favor of the con
tractor based on percentages of what
reimbursement may be granted by
the government.
Tlie claims of people who cannot
afford to pay such charges are usually
the ones against whom these charges
are assessed.
Tlie legislative act now under con
sideration by congress, contemplates
that the government shall itself ar-l
range for making repairs to injured
property in any case where it is con
j sidered that such procedure la on the,
' whole proper and equitable. This:
procedure will undoubtedly be under
taken where any improper charges
are Included in the claim; and it is
rertain that no percentage charge or
high arbitrary charge for making es
timates will under any conditions lie
reimbursed by the government. The
board has in its service capable anil j
trustworthy appraisers who will make|
estimates free of charge for any
claimant making request therefor.
It Is suggested that the above mat
ters be borne in mind by any claim
ant who may have been or may yet
be approached by contractors on the
lines above mentioned
The board und the city authorities
are glad to state that the conduct
mentioned above applies only to a
very few parties, and that most of the
contractors engaged 111 this work have'
been honorable and reasonable In
their procedure.
