The several different denominations were represented in last night's audience. Johnson City, Tenn., October 2, 1918. Editor Chattanooga Times, Chattanooga, Tenn. Sir: . I have a clipping from the Greene ville Sun in which is quoted an ar ticle recently published in the Times on the subject of the charges pre ferred against Prof. Sidney G. Gil breath, president of the East Tennes see State Normal. There are some glaring mistakes in. this article, and I trust that you will kindly give space for the publication of this let ter in order that the facts may ap pear. It is not true that the charges are brought by "Sam Thompson, of Bris tol, former State Superintendent, and by a man named Kennedy. " Katie Sue, the beautiful and ac-!The charges were made by citizens MEMORIAL. complished daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. Crum, was born May 3, 1905, and died September 26, 1918. She was of that kind, gentle, lov ing disposition that ever renders ser vice and makes and keeps friends. This was truly exemplified in the beautiful talk she made just a few hours before her death. To those of of Johnson City men who have been and are independent of Mr. Gilbreath and whom he haS not been able to hurt in airy way. Your informant was either ignorant or deliberately misled you when he tried to make the impression that these charges were brought by some one who was disgruntled because of having been her dear ones at home and some of discharged from the Normal school NOTICE.

Rev. Moses Hay conducted her funeral Friday at 10:30 o'clock at Mt. Olivet, using as his subject, "Heaven" and developing some beau tiful thoughts. Six girls, who were former school mates, preceded by two laden with flowers all dressed in white, carried her tenderly to her grave to awajt the resurrection. S As these, and her Immediate fam ily, except an absent brother, who is a hero of the Marne, nursing a shattered arm in France, stood weep ing about her white casket, I could not but think with Carleton: "Would I might utter all my heart can feel; But there are thoughts weak words will not reveal." 1 A FRIEND.

TO EGG PACKERS AND SHIPPERS You are now compelled to attach a card to every case of eggs you pack or ship, showing that same has been The complaint and demand for in vestigation comes from men who are Well acquainted with Mr. Gilbreath's character and who do not consider him a fit person for the position he now holds. It is true that Mr. Samuel II Thompson, former State Superintend. ent, is a witness as to one of the charges, that of drunkenness. The "man named Kennedy" of whom you speak, is Dr. Edwin W. Kennedy, for seven years professor of histoty at the East Tennessee State Normal and formerly of the Peabody College at Nashville. He is a man of high standing; a scholar and a gentleman, and one of the most highly respected and best-liked men in this community. Dr. Kennedy has been one of the Normal's best assets because of his learning, his charac ter, his personality and his enthusi asm for the cause of education, and there is no doubt that his omission from the faculty for the coming year is an added reason why hosts of peo ple in Johnson City and East Ten nessee generally think Mr. Gilbreath is unfit for the position he now holds, but the filing of the charges against Mr. Gilbreath did not arise out of Dr. Kennedy's dismissal. The move ment to acquaint the state board with the true character of the Normal school's president started before the election of teachers for the coming year and before we had any intima tion that Dr. Kennedy would not be re-elected. L We understand Mr. Gilbreath gives as his reason for not asking the re election of Dr Kennedy, that he, Dr. Kennedy, had criticized the president of the Normal and some of the teach ers there. The fact is that one of the teachers, of Austrian birth, made, candled. You must have printed cards for this purpose.

Since the advocacy of Hun principles has become unpopular, not to say danger ous, Mr. Gilbreath has become one of our most enthusiastic little Lib erty Loan speakers. You say "Details of these charges have been suppressed." They have not been suppressed by those who brought the charge. If the Times wishes to publish them, it can get a copy. Your s informant states that "the charge in which the girl is concerned is ridiculous in the extreme, and is not couched in very definite terms," This is not true. If the Times wishes to publish the charges, it will find the public will have no difficulty in un derstanding them, and will not think them at all ridiculous in connection with the name of a man who is in charge of a great educational insti tution where, in the course of the years, thousands of, East Tennessee girls are to be educated. The intimation that there was a hearing at Nashville and that Presi dent Gilbreath "refuted" the charges is not based on fact. He may have denied them, but there has been no hearing. We were asked by the state board to appear at Nashville and pro duce witnesses, which we refused to do for obvious reasons, After this the board met and adjourned to John son City. If Mr. Gilbreath asked for a hearing here, it was by way of making a virtue of necessity. Mr. Thompson made no request oft the subject. If Mr. Gilbreath and his friends wish to try this case in . the newspa pers, they can be accommodated, but if the Times wishes to ascertain for itself whether the charges are "ridic ulous," let it have its reporter attend the hearing." t I am, Bir, Respectfully yours, WM.
