Reading of Every Resolution Is
Signal for Battle on
rectum of Members of Council
Brings Out Charges of .
Unfair Play
!' BERKELEY. Dec. 3o. — Five hours of
tormy session marked the closing of
the forty-fourth annual meeting of the
California teachers' association 'today,
and the excitement during the closing
hours was so intense tliat Chairman Al
fred Roricovieri could hardly control
tjfc shouting and gesticulating school
Pteachers -who "would have their views
lizard wluen resolutions were voted on.
The "conquest of the regulars over the
insurgents by a vote of 4 to 1 added
fuel to the flames, and throughout the
entire day there ' were charges and
counter charges of trickery, neglect of
§«suty, politics and other open and covert
Insinuations. .
The bright spot eft the meeting was
the announcement of the union of the
10.000 teachers of California, now divid
ed into lour separate teachers' associa
tions in the four sections of the state,
into one body, with one council of edu
cation composed of 10 delegates from
«*• h of the present associations. Only
in affairs of state interest and import
ance however, will the state associa
tion created today join bands, as in
ether affairs the four separate divisions
Trill transact their business as now.
The meeting today had hardly; been
cajled at 10 o'clock when the storm
t>n>l;e on the presentation of the teach
irs' retirement bill, which was up for
indorsement before action .on it will
Vbe asked from the legislature. The
bill was framed by Prof. Alexis F.
L&nge, and its introduction caused a
storm of protest.
The excited teachers, in their efforts
to be heard and to secure the floor,
crowded around the speaker's rostrum,
and it was only at intervals that quiet
was restored, only to have the storm
break out anew.
Sirs. Mary Sprague. of the history de
partment of the girls' high school of
San Francisco, was a leader in the
demonstration and represented the San
Francisco teachers in the fight. They
insisted that the proposed law should
allow the teachers to engage in private
work after retirement ,a motion-which
was passed after a heated debate. -
The primary teachers were aligned
ag-alnet the high school teachers in. a
second wordy battle. The lower grades
declared that they on retirement would
receive but a small salary while the
high school teachers would secure a
greater benefit. They insisted on a uni
form basis for the proposed pension
act. The high schools won out.
tThe main provisions of the bill which
as finally adopted are: That a teacher
sail receive after 30 years of service,
-.1 reaching the age of 60 years, a pen
sion which shall amount to one-half of
her average salary for the last 10 years
»>f service in the schools. This sum is
not to be less than $500 nor more than
51.200 a year.
* Minor battles were waged when the
. -rtfport ol— Colonel Harris WefristocJc,
.chairman, was presented on industrial
• education. A number of teachers de
clared that the words "commercial" ap- i
• filed to "industrial" should be stricken
out, as the commercial schools are pro
vided for by the state, while industrial
. education, domestic scienec and the
like, are neglected.
Colonel Murphy of San Francisco was
theieader in the defense of the com
mercial schools and was the main
speaker when this debate occupied the
attention of the convention. After a
war of words the convention decided to
eliminate the word "commercial," and
the resolution asking, for state support
for Industrial education was carried.
A resolution regulating the rural
schools and the appointment of super
intendents caused more warfare, and
this was only settled when thep ropoeed
law was voted, down.
The teachers indorsed the fair for
San Francisco in 1915. Copies of the
resolutions will be sent to California's
representatives in congress.
Other resolutions passed were:
Indorsement of plaj-jrroands.
A d«tt law for. the encouragfcaieat of general
More careful soperrlsion of tbe health of the
children in U»e schools.
L*w for tl»e mnrf satisfactory Ucterminatlon

paign for saniiationfl
Higrto^r salaries for traohens.

Second only, to the stormy session
field at the closing, was the election of
\u25a0members of the state council of educa
tion. The nominations yesterday showed
the attitude of a large number of teach
ers who fought to secure the nomina
tion of the -insurgent ticket, but, the
regulars carried the day.
; *"A* ,a .result. Miss Howe, president
*»lect-of the association, denounced Le- ;
t m" Armstrong, secretary of the meet
"jgr.Jn strong terms. She declared that
.he and other members of ' the" asso
ciation had been purposely misinformed
by Armstrong as to the matters\which
were to come before the meeting yes
terday, at which the nominations were
made. - (
"They have not played fair," declared
Miss Howe, "and I am exceedingly an
*rry over the whole affair. No notice
•was given us as to the meeting for
nominations yesterday and there" was
deception practiced by some of the of
ficers of the association. '.':
"The nominations should have been
made this morning at the regular ses
sion, hut instead they were rushed
through yesterday while many of the
teachers were away, expecting that this
Important matter would be part of the
closing session. /
• "There was, therefore, but a third of
the association membership present at
the meeting and the others did not
know that an, election; was being. held
today. That accounts for the small
number of votes cast."
The activity of the regulars was evi
denced by the fact that Edward Hyatt
leader of the Insurgent ticket, received
but 145. votes, while the "machine"-car
ried the day with each- of its candi
dates, receiving more than 225 votes
The* 10 members elected to: the council
of education are:

Great Damage Done- in Alaska
by Water Which Burst
From Frozen Stream*
CORDOVA. Alaska, Dec. 30.— Forest
Ranger George Johnson "returned today
from an inspection of the Bering \u25a0 gla
cier, region and confirmed' the. reports
of \u25a0 the great 'damage' done by the flood
which ' burst fro'rii the glacier last
month. Because -of. the. heavy fall of
snow ( he was unable, to reach the. chain
of lakes above the glacier todetermine
the cause of . the - phenomenal jflood,'; but
he verified' stories of enormous, dam
age done to tlie large sweep. of country,
between tlie glacier, and the .sea. \ '
Johnson also investigated the\where
abouts of H. S-Wisejand Kayak Sniith:
Wise and Smith" escaped^ injury, but j£n- t
derwent .thrilling*'' experiences , and; iri-f
dured hardships jn ': making their^escape
from . : Icebergs? and <cold£**water A'that
swept down the Bering sea .valley.' The
two men " were : asleep . in' their, cabins
on the banks of the Bering,. river when
the flood bore down on them. _
Thinking that the flood would soon
subside, Wise and Smith piled their
belongings on top of the bed and drew
themselves up to escape the cold water,
which was rapidly, rising. They re
mained in the cabin until , the. water
rose above the bed, when .they, took
a canoe and, after a severe, struggle
with the flood, reached the high ground
at the McDonald coal mine.
Ranger Johnson says that .thousands
of acres were swept by the flood j and
that the loss to prospectors and home
steaders was heavy. The water in Ber
ing lake,_many miles below the glacier,
rose 10 feet within a few hours, carry-
Ing away thousands of feet of cut pil
ing and sawlogs.
