to persistent report, infested the fac?
ulty and the student bodv alike.

berann- invohed lu the contest over
the congressional nomination. Kriends
of both sides ait- angry with some of
the results, and with some of those
connected with the no mal
* is* eraer Ho Id lag i p.
No appointments have as yet been
made by Governor Mann to the board
of directors, although five vacancies:
have existed since July 1. It baa been ;
customary in past years to have the;
first meeting of the board in each
session on October IS. but it is now
too late to have the new members, j
even if appointed at once, to qualify'
and be called together bty that time.'
Not that such boards play a highly
important part, except In the election'
of a superintendent, but the slti^ktlon .
and the comments thereon have great- ,
ly affected the hitherto smooth course
of the institution.
The Governor's position has been i
nothing If not frank. lie said in a!
public statement that he was informed
that one of the officials had been play- '
ing politics, and that he propoaed to'
hold up the appointments until after,
the primary election. Since a con- j
t?st has arisen over the result of that;
election, it is presumed, and currently j
assumed, that he is now awaiting its
Unal determination by the Democratic;
State Commute here Tuesday night. {
Naturally, the next Imputation Is that
the Governor ia trying to influence j
the result of the appeal, although it
is a little difficult to see how he could !
accomplish this in such a manner.
Tnraball Was aa Board.
What gives the incident such signifl
cance is that Congressman Robert '
Turnbull. one of the candidates in the .
Fourth District prlmanry. has been for 1
years president.- in* the Farm vi lie
board. His term expired July 1.
Mr. Turnbull is very popular with the
normal school authorities. He had the
support of the officials and teachers, I
it is understood. The Governor beard
bitter complaints from advocates of
Judge Walter A. Watsjn that R M.
? 'ox, steward of the school, was very
active In his work for Mr. Turnbull. '
Mr. Caa ha> always been regarded as
a Republican in national politics. He
has deni?d pernicious political activity
in the recent campaign, and his post- j
tion is corroborated by Judge Asa ?
Wslklaa. secretary of the board and a
close personal friend of Judge Watson. ?
Hearing these complaint* the Gover- j
nc-r held up the appointments of t*he .
board. It was supposed he would reap- |
point all the old members save J. J. j
Owen, of Prince Edward, who doea not,
desire to continue. When criticised the j
executive made his public statement, j
saying that he had been Informed there j
was politics In the situation and that!
he wruld hold matters up until after |
the election.
Teacher* and Posdls Starred.
The Times-Dispatch was informed
yesterday by Judge Wafklna that no
meeting of the school board has as yet
been called. There is perhaps, no
hurry about it. hut the failure to ap- j
point the body is said to he having se?
rious effects. The feeling of uncer-J
