The Seattle Star t*«wwfMh|MHr Mm- IwrfrtM AMM *»d ttatto* The School Board Election Seattle voters have n novel embarrassment confronting them in one department of the city campaign. Thin is in the choice of a school director for the three-year term where they have TOO MANY Rood men to choo.se between. It is in this race that Dr. Tiffin ia figuring, and figuring strong. Dr. Tiffin is dragging the school election into the realm of ward politics In a manner that The Star cannot excuse nor condone, lie ought to he beaten. Rut here is the dilemma. Running against him are TWO citizens of the highest type. Dr. C. W. Sharpies Is n man of high professional standing, clear ideas on school econ omies and instruction and of a fine, scientific mind. Dean Rurkheimer, attorney, is equally well qualified for the position. He is clean, intelligent, deeply interested in school affairs. Mrs. Rurkheimer is one of the city's most intelligent and active P.-T. A. workers, and the couple have four children, a fact which makes the Hchnol system near to their heart. Mr. Rurkheimer is supported by a considerable group of citizens who resent too much medical supervision in the schools. Either he or Dr. Sharpies would make. In the estimation of The Star, an excellent school director. For the one-year term the issue is not so clear-cut. Claude 11. Kckhart is a candidate for re-election. The Star believes his record to date shows him to be responsible In part for the extravagance and wastefulness of which taxpayers are complaining. He should be beaten, and of the three men opposed to him, E. F. Taylor is probably best equipped and likely to accomplish it.
