Kclleher, the retiring County Superinten dent ot Public Instruction, filed suit with the Clerk of the District Court against Mrs. Margaret Burnham, Superintendent-elect, to re strain her from holding the position. The complaint alleges, a mong other things, that the défendent cannot legally qualify for the position, on the grounds that she does not hold the state certificate of a grade necessary as re quired by law. This action was file! after a complaint had been filed with the Commissioners al ledging as facts the above, together with the request that the Board refrain from swearing Mis. Burnha n in to office. The Commissioners decid ed, however, that the ques tion of Mrs. Burnham's qual ifications was a. matter lor the courts to decide and that lad y was sworn into office, the Board taking the posi tion that she had been duly and legally elected to office. Much interest is manifest ed in this case which will probably be heard at the spring term of the District Court. RUPERT i HUGHES One of the Most Popular of American Authors mÊs ft?
