TEACHER DISMISSAL AT TECHNICAL HIGH STIRS UP PROTEST Women of Eighth Ward to Go Into Charge That Thomas Carroll Was Ousted Be cause of Wage Activity . FEDERATION PROMISES TO DO THINGS L A protest against the action of the city school board in refusing to re ■CW the contract of Thomas Carroll, a teacher at the Arsenal 'T echnical High school who was active in the campaign made by the teachers for in creased salaries, and against the reappointment of a number of other teach ers for half-year terms only, is contained in a comm'ittee report prepared today for presentation at a meeting of the Eighth ward organization of the Indianapolis League of Women Voters in the dining room of the Winter apartments tonight. Miss Charlotte J. Dunn and Miss Alma ( L. Sickler compose the committee. Kills XJ. Graff, superintendent of the city schools: C. E. Crippin, president of the school board, and Milo H. Stuart, principal of the Arsenal Technical schools, have been invited to attend. FEDERATION JOINS IN PROTEST. The Indianapolis Teachers' federation also has taken the matter up and is planning a protest to the school beard. According to officials of the federa tion, no explanation Las been made of refusal to renew .Mr. Carroll’s contra< t. "We learn that late in February a committee of the Indianapolis Teachers’ federation was appointed to work for increased salaries for grade school teach ers and each high school was asked to elect five teachers to work for increase 1 high school salaries." the report says. “All three high schools elected com mittees. “In two high schools the committee met with the co-operation of the high school administration. “At the Arsenal Technical High school they were interviewed individually by the principal of the school before they began their work and warned not to be too active. THREAT- CAUSES ONE TO DROP OCT. “One member of the committee with drew as a result of that threat.’’ The committee reported that a com mittee of all the schools held a meet ing before the school board, but that there was no official spokesman for the Technical representation. “May 1 one member of the committee, Mr. Carroll of the history department, was told he would not be reappointed next year.” the report continues. *He was then told that his work was satisfactory and his character not lu question. “When he asked If he were being dis missed for his activities on the salary committee his question was not an swered. ” Mr. Carroll came to Technical about five years ago and has risen rapldiy, becoming one of the best paid teachers, the report points out. It states that he was deputized this year to take over a certain amount of the work of the principal in addition to his own. It points out that he served a year In the army, attaining the rank of captain, and that he is secretary of the School men’s club, vice president-elect of the Teachers' Federation and recently presi dent of the High.School Teachers' asso ciation. “Your committee did not interview Mr. Carroll, as we heard shortly after taking up the investigation that he had a written statement of his case and we secured that from him instead of an Interview," the report continues. “In connection with Mr. Carroll’s case, however, we wish to call attention to one point—the statement that he would be cApficd to a maximum salary if retained IHn therefore might be dismissed for rea sons of economy. "If the maximum salary is to be held before the teachers of our schools, not as a goal to which they njay climb, but as a jumping off’place they dare not ap proach too near, the results are bound to be disastrous to our school system. “No efficiency can be secured under such policy.” EARLY PROTEST POINTED OI T. The committee points out that the matter was presented at a meeting of Technical teachers May 21 and that the teachers drew up a resolution and sent ft to the school board thanking it for the salary increases but declaring they cntild not accept them and retain their self respect if Mr. Carroll's efforts la (Continued on rage Two.)

BAR COMMITTEE TO REVIEW ACTS OF 2 ATTORNEYS Announcement Follows Dis cussion of Charges Be fore Association. Investigation of charges of unpro fessional conduct against two Indi anapolis attorneys will be made by the grievance committee of the Indi anapolis Bar association, it was made known today following a meeting of the association in the library of the federal court last night. The names of the two attorneys who are under investigation were not made public by Edward H. Knight of the grievance committee. Mr. Knight, outlining the policy of the grievance committee, stared that fre quent complaints have been lodged with the committee against practicing attor neys and that two, against whom com plaints have -been made, have been cited for a hearing. More than thirty members of the as sociation attended the meeting and dis cussed Informally their ideas of con ducting disbarment proceedings and the methods to be used by the grievance com mittee. Judge T. J. Moll of superior court, room a, outlined the three mo*t prev alent existing abuses on part of attor neys which has come to bis notice dur ing his years on the bench. The jurist stated that the action of any attorney taking the allowance and sup port money of a client as a fee Is a most unprofessional breech. Judge Moll pointed out that support money, when ordered by the court. Is never considered as fees for an attorney and yet the court contended that com plaints have reached him of attorneys accepting such money as fees. He classed the taking of change of venues from the Judge and the county as the next two existing abuses Tb court stated that, in his opinion, changes of venue were often obtained on (Continued on Page Eight.)

JltiftoM Jlaihj CONVENTION TO BE SHORT, EVEN THOUGH STORMY Won’t Drag to Deadlock and May End by Friday, Pre diction of Leaders. MAY DODGE OLD ERRORS CHICAGO, June 3. —A 6trangG veer of the political winds has set in during the past twenty-four hours and many leaders now voice the opinion that instead of the conven tion possibly lasting over Sunday, it may even end as early as Friday. Gen. Leonard Wood believes the con vention will be short, and some of his principal supporters have expressed a similar view, while along “presidential row" there seems to be a new-born feel ing that things will not drag along in a deadlock, once proceedings at the Col iseum get under way. AH sorts of reasons for this new pre convention cross-current have been put forward, but the principal one invoked is the campaign fund airing before the Kenyon committee in Washington. The senatorial investigation, it Is cur rently believed here, has already per formed a considsrable amount of work which, in one way or another, the con vention would otherwise have had to do. thereby shortening its labors by that much. TRYING TO AVOID OLD MISTAKES. Furthermore, It is believed here, that in case it Is found, ufter the first billot or two. that the chances of any of the candidates have been mater-h*-. changed by the testimony of witnesses in Wash ington. such candidates will soon elim inate themselves from the convention or be eliminated by it. Another of the reasons heard among politicians is that the republicans this year, extremely desirous of not repeat ing the mistakes of 1912 and 1918. will strive from the outset for harmony. Some doubts are expressed that this will be at all times possible to obtain and there is still some betting that Sen ! ator Hiram Johnson will bolt the con vention. WANT ALL HANDS TO “PLAY THE GAME.” Party leaders are endeavoring to in duce all hands to agree to “piay the game” and stand or fall by the result, and afterward to fight for the election of the ticket named by the convention. Gen. Wood will not bolt, however much he has heretofore acted contrary to orthodox methods by Invading favor ite son states and the like. Herbert Hoover says he will abide by the decis ion of bis party. Os Lowden. bolting there has never been any question. The main fight, as viewed five days before the convention meets, will first come between Lowden, Johnson and Wood and the belief exists here today , that some six or seven ballots ought to ! tell the tale The first not counting; j the second furnishing an idea of eom ' parative standings: the third displaying ; a tendency to deadlock: fourth un*l fifth, ditto; then consultations and a ! nomination of one of the above —or some I compromise candidate. | So argued the "regulars’’ today, al - though they recognized that this pro -1 diction might not come true as there is ; a steady solidification of sentiment lu favor of Lowden.

Big Crowd Greets Him at Station CHICAGO. June 3.—Hiram Johnson, the last of the Big Three candi dates for the republican nomination to reach the scene of battle, arrived here at 1:40 p. m. today. With a hip, hip, hurrah and blare of bands such as greeted the com ing of no other presidential candidate in this campaign, the Californian briskly swung himself down from the steps of his sleeper. Literally landing in the arms of a mob of clamoring admirers, he was swept along by the crowd on the platform and into an automobile outside the LaSalle street station. From the station ha was driven to the* Auditorium hotel, where his headquar ters have been established. His car moved slowly, to give Chi cagoans, out to greet him, a chance. “Howdy, Hiram!” people shouted all along the way. The “write-in flub,” as those who. at the time of the Illinois primary “wrote in" his name on the ballots, call themselves, were out by the thou sands lustily yelling “Howdy, Hiram,” with ail their might.

Failure to obtain pergonal service on John Hampton, a dry beer saloon owner of Evansville, Ind., as one of the prin cipal witnesses for the state, today caused delay In the beginning of the trials of three former Jail employes and a former cell boss in the criminal court on an Indictment charging them with conducting a gambling house at the Jail. The case was scheduled to begin this morning but the state refused to go on with the trial until Hampton arrived. "Hampton is the state s most important witness and it. is necessary that he be here before we can begin this case," salt Prosecutor Claris Adams. Investigation showed, according to *he bailiff of the criminal court, that the sheriff of Van.lerburg county at Evans ville, did not get service on Hampton, as he was reported "spending Memorial day in Kentucky." The defendants first filed a motion to qn;ish, but this was promptly overruled by Special Judge James M Berry bill. After waiting more than two hours for Hampton to appear the court continued the case until 2 o'clock tbts aftemoon.

Now that Johnson has arrived all pres idential row is watching and waiting to see what will happen.

WOOD HIMSELF PRESENT AT ‘RAISE A MILLION’ MEETING Wall Street Financiers Met in New York Last November to ‘Organize’ Financial End of Campaign, Senate Told. STEEL HEAD PLEADS* WITH BANKER WASHINGTON, June 3.—-Gen. Leonard Wood himself was present at a meeting of New York and Philadelphia financiers held in New York City last November to “organize” the financial end of his campaign with a “million dollars as a starter,” Charles H. Duell, a lawyer of Yonkers, N. Y., who was closely associated with the Wood campaign when John T. King, republican national committeeman from Connecticut, was its manager, testified before the senate committee investigating presidential campaign expenditures. WOOD’S INDIANA REPORT EVASION Not Complete Statement of Expenditures in State. Gen. Leonard Wood's report of rompalfo expenditures in Indiana is an evasion of the corrupt practices act of Indiana. It Is not a complete statement of expenditures of the Wood campaign in Indiana. It does not reveal the purpose for which certain ;gma were paid. It discloses on its face that it can not he a complete report of the ex penditures of the campaign to win the popular republican vote for Wood In Indiana. The report affords numerous side lights on the way the “Wood senti ment" was “accumulated” In Indi ana, however, and for that reason alone is one of the most Interesting documents of the campaign. According to the sworn statement of Gen. Wood, filed today with the Marion county clerk, he disbursed $43,571.93 and has unpaid bills outstanding amounting to $11,401.10, making a total of *54,972.13. which is tn addition to the sum of $5, 261.85 paid to Irving Lemaux, president of the Jewett board of works, who was the chairman of the Leonard Wood com mittee of Indiana. Most prominent for their absence in the report were the sums paid to Harry G. Hogan of Ft. Wayne, who was the In diana manager for Wood. According to the report Hogan received only a few dollars as ’’refunds’' for post age. etc. No reference Is made to any traveling expenses for him nor to any recompense for hia services in the state. AND TYLER WASN'T RAID AT ALL! Robert Tyler, who was in charge of the publicity work in Indian*, was not paid for his services, according to the report, although it is well known that lie boastej of receiving a big salary for hi* efforts. He was the man who held forth the now famous offer of $250 apiece for “tes- Itrnontals” for Wood which were sup tiled by a number of Indianapolis news paper men who were paid for their serv p-es. The names of these ludlanapoiig news paper men do not appear in the Wood report. Thousands of dollars of expenditures were “cleared" through the Emerson H. Knight Advertising Agency and through Emerson B. Knight, the report merely showing that the money was paid to either one or the other for “publicity.” EXPLANATION OF THAT “WOOD SENTIMENT.” A nottpeable feature of the report is the explanation which it furnishes of the “remarkable Wood sent’ment" dis covered In various localities of Indiana (Continued on Page Eight.) ‘INTERNATIONAL' FUSS SMOOTHED Judge at First Thought It Political Affray. A dozen witnesses gathered in front of Judge Walter Pritchard in city court today when the case of Herbert Abbott, 360 West Raymond street, was called. Abbott was charged with profanity. "This is a neighborhood quarrel," ex plained Trosecutor Spaan to the court. “Is the trouble between the republic ans and democrats?" asked the court, confident he would be able to smooth out the difficulty. "No, judge, it's between the Dutch and the Irish." exclaimed Sarah Murphy, 2134 Webb street, “and I am one of the Irish." “In that case the court had better hear the evidence," remarked Judge Pritchard. SHE’S BACKED IP BY HEK TWO SISTERS. The Murphy woman was the first wit ness, and her testimony that Abbott had cursed her was corroborated by her two sisters. The families live near each other, and she also admitted that she had “whipped Abbott’s mother and would do it again" if she called her names. At. that moment Mrs. Abbott inter rupted the court and declared “she itever whipped me and she can’t whip me.” Mrs. Abbott's face appeared to be bad ly scratched. Mrs. Murphy’s sister jumped from her chair and called to the judge. “If you will come down in our neigh borhood and just go from house to house the neighbors will teil you about that ’woman,” pointing to Mrs. Abbott. “And if you will I will give you $5 and your pinner.” ABBOTT ADMITS THE CHARGES. Abbott, when called to testify, told of the trouble and admitted he cursed Sarah Murphy. Judge Pritchard fined Abbott $1 and costs on profanity and said the court was surprised that no assault and battery charges had been filed against Sarah Murphy. Abbott's attorney said that would be taken care of later. There was another wild scene when the three sisters attempted to claim witness fees in the city clerk's office. They marched into court and demanded the fees of Judge Pritchard, but were told no fees were paid In city court. “It’s all right, judge,” said one of the sisters, “Just so tie had to pay the fine and costs.” . j Tire Tube Blows Up; Boy May Lose Sight GOSJtEN.

Dnell testified a meeting of men iden tified with Wail street financial interests to “underwrite” the Wood campaign was held at the residence of Ambrose Monell, steel and nickel magnate, 16 East Sixty second street, New York City. Robert T. Cassatt, wealthy Philadelphia banker, and son of the late Robert J. Cassatt, one-time president of the Penn sylvania railroad, was present at the gathering, Duell said. Cassatt was asked to personally “un derwrite" 'a half million fund to start the Wood campaign, Duell added. Cas satt declined to do so, however, and Monell agreed to “raise it himself,’’ Duell explained. MONELL KNEW HOW TO RAISE THE COIN. Monell, Duell said, was the great col lector of Wood money in the early days of the campaign. His theory of a campaign was “under writing it to the tune of $500,000 or $1,000,000,” Duell added. f Senators were much interested In tljto testimony that Wood had been present at the conference where the million-dol lar campaign fund was discussed. Duell told of their later conferences which he said were attended by W. C. Procter, E. E. Smothers, Col. Byllesby of Chicago. Monell and himself. He told of a luncheon in May, 1919. to which writers and editors were invited. It was then he became identified with the Wood campaign, Duel! said. Duell also told of a luncheon confer ence w-jth Monell, E. E. Smathers, $20.- 000 contributor and Col. Byllesby of Chicago at which "Monell said he was quite willing to undertake raising $250,- 009 ” Before Duell could be question'd the committee recessed to allow senators to take part In the debate on the adjourn ment resolution.

Senator Kenyon wired to Stebbins at the New York address the committee would expect him to appear before 't to morrow. WOULD EXTEND INVESTIGATION.
