Raleigh, Dec. 21 —State Treasurer
;! Charles M. Johnson is getting fired
■of having Attorney General Dennis
{A Brummitt haul out dead cats and
try to pump new life into them, even
'if they are supposed to have nine
lives. So again today, for about the
’ jfourth or fifth time. State Treasurer
EJohnson points out that Attorney
General Brummitt is still “all wet*’ In
bis contention that the State School
j -{Commission could have -obtained ad
jkiitional money from the Emergency
i Relief Administration last year and
’ again this year, if it had followed his
| plan and increased the State salary'
■schedule 10 per cent, as Brummitt
! proposed more than a year ago.
5 State Treasurer Johnson also points
j out that on June 2, 1934, a statement
.was issued by the State Board of
i Public Instruction and signed by
( Governor the late Dr
■A. T. Allen, then superintendent of
i public instruction, and every other I
member of the hoard with the excep- j
| lion of Brummitt and State Auditol
-■Baxter Durham, to the effect that the ;
.Brummitt plan had been considered j
but found to be unworkable since the 1
.Vedergl government had made it i
|,plain that emergency grants to schools
would be made only on the basis of :
Jfhe salary schedule.
■;> 'Hie latest culmination from Attor
ney General 'Brummitt appeared in
, The News and Observer here Wed
> nesday morning, in which he said !
that the SqhOol Commission could
have gone ahead and disregarded his
advice with regard to paying school j
teachers for half a month and have
ordered them paid, just as it disre
' garded his advice a year or so ago
when he wanted it to increase the
salary' lo per cent. Last week Attor
ney' General Brummitt ruled that
under the law, the school teachers
could not he paid for the amount of
-rork they have done in December,
so they might have an extra pay
check before Christmas.
In this statement in The News and
Observer, Brummitt virtually reversed
his opinion of a few days previous
and indicated that the School Com
mission could gone ahead and
paid the school teachers before the
holidays without asking any advice
from him, pointing out that it had
disregarded his opinion before. In- :
der the law. however, it is tne State 1
superintendent of public instruction
who has control of the disbursement
!of State school funds and not the
State School Commission, although ,
the attorney general failed to point j
out this distinction. Yet he is sup
! pbsed to know- the law. His state- *
; meat w-oukl make it appear that the
! school commission could have ordered
i the teachers paid before Christmas
I when he should have known that only
I ihe State superintendent of public in
struction could release this money,
it is pointed out by those who know
j the facts. |
The attorney general also referred ,
to the action of the School Commis- j
sion in disregarding his recommenda
tion to increase the State salary- sche
dule 10 per cent last year and said
that Alabama had received Federal
aid for its teachers, inferring that it
had increased the salary' schedule. It
is this part of his statement that State
Treasurer Johnson replied to as fol
“Sometime in the spring of 1934
Attorney' General Brummitt gave out
a statement in which he substantially
said tht if the State Board of Educa
tion had adopted a State teachers
alary schedule at 10 per cent above
he amount that we had the money
to pay, the F’ederal government. ;
would have made up the difference, i
“Governor: JpShringhaus gave out a
statement WH’ich appeared in the 1
newspapers of June 2. 1934, based on
information which he received from
Dr. A. T. Allen, then State superin
tendent of public instruction, in which
ihe (Gov. Ehringhaus) stated this
was utterly groundless and that the
state superintendent of public instme
lon was authority for the assertion
bat the amount of Federal money al
lotted to any State could in no way
- based upon any mere salary- sche
dule but had to be backed by actual
payments. This statement was sign
ed by Governor Ehringhaus, Lieuten
ant Governor A. H. Graham, Dr.
Allen, Secretary of State Stacy W.
Wade and my-self.
, “Mr. Brummitt has continued to
repeat the statement from time to
time and in Wednesday’s papers this
ptatement was repeated again. He'
seemingly is not satisfied with the
Governor’s statement backed up by
Dr. Allen, who had been to Wash
ington and had discussed the matter
with officials there.
“So today I telegraphed the offi
cials in Washington who has sole
charge of granting Federal money
for public education. His reply to me
was that rulesand regulations g »
turning relief aid to schools in states
such as Alabama specify that the sal
aries to be paid must be contract
salaries specified in contracts rather
than salary schedule salaries. He
also said that no aid had beer, expend
ed to schools except where the schools
were being forced to close because of
complete exhaustion of State and 10-cal
-cal funds.”
