DANGEROUS LIQUIDS
Gasoline, ether and benzine should
not be kept on shelves in a cabinc*
in the house, the National Board of
Fir,. Underwriters says in a recent
article. It is exceedingly dangerous,
as either gasoline or benzine gives
off nt ordinary temperature inflam­
mable vapor. Thru these vapors, a
light at n distance may ignite the
liquid. If there is a small leak in the
container in which any of the liquids
arc kept, sufficient vapor may form
to cause a voilent explosion. With
cither the danger is even greater
than with gasoline or benzine.

attacks, lasting several yearn,’ ac­
cording to conclusions re ached by
the public health service at Washing­
ton, after intensive study in the
homes where the distant was epidem-

Sutgeon General Cuming pointed
out, however, that there was no way
of definitely forcteling "whether this
winter will witne-s nnv recurrence

added that it was “unfortunate” that
the public was “so little moved” by
the “daily occurrence of preventable

“Of the 1,250,000 deaths occurring

“Star of Glory,” will be given by the
choir at the Baptist church, Sunday
evening, January 2. under the direc­
tion of Mrs. W. S. Thompson, who

tells of the expectation of the sim­
ple, sincere people, who were look­
ing for the Messiah at the time of
the advent of the Christ. The songs
depict the feelings as only song can
depict. The story will be recited by
Mrs. Thompson, who is a reader of

ected many cantatas and song ser­
vices. The choir is composed of Mad­
ams Kenworthy, Koller, Henderson,

TEACHERS TENURE
AGAIN DISCUSSED
IlefenJs Present Tenure Law
(From the Oregonian of Dec. 21)
The writer regards the present
school tenure of office law as mak­
ing for the establishment of a prin­
ciple of justice, which should prevail
in all forms of public service where
the employing force is subject to fre­
quent changes and where passion,
prejudice, policy aid favoritism too
often are the influencing factor»
both in the hiring and discharging
of subordinates.
Our tenure law provides for a dis­
passionate body where the employe,
suffering innocently by virtue of dis­
missal for alleged reasons, having no
true foundation in fact, may appeal.
Here are facts as regards the pres­
ent tenure law directly affecting 40,-
000 school children, parents, taxpay­
ers. citizens and all concerned in
their well-being.
First, at all times and prior to the
passage of the present tenure law
the teaching force of our schools was
subject to arbitrary dismissal. The
writer can site more than one ease of
this nature. Our »choois were car­
ried on under the machine system
with a condition which was intolera­
ble.
The law has made reasonably se­
cure the efficient teacher. Director»
with a pull, with friends or relatives
to place, powerful interests, caring
naught for the well-being of our
schools, with but selfish ends to
serve, can no longer work their evil
ways.
Under the present law there has
not been thus far a single contested
case on the grounds of inefficiency.
Dismissals or resignations have been
in no way checked, but rather aided,
by the present law.
The proposed amendment has its
genesis within a small group, an^'ia
being pushed forward by them. The
s'hool board as such did not initiate
the present effort.
Present standards and require­
ments of fitness as applied to teach­
ers have reached a point where it is
necessary for the appointee to meas­
ure up in physical, personal, mental
qualifications to a very high degree.
Y ears of training are necessary, ed­
ucational degrees, previous teaching
experience outside of our schools—
ill these are essential before the
teacher can become even a substitute,
and after serving as a substitute in
our '■chools for aperiod and the name
is presented the board for election,
she must teach continuously- for two
years longer on probation before
coming under the provisions of the
present tenure law.
That is to say, principal, superin­
tendent and directorate have from
two to four years in which to deter­
fine the fitness of a teacher, and dur­
ing that time dismissal may follow
under the present Jaw without pro­
test or interference on the part of
the teacher.
The writer holds that this is ample
time to determine the fitness of the
-ervant and if from two to four years
have elapsed and there has been neg­
lect on the part of every superior of­
ficer, then certainly the remedy lies,
not in the amendment of the law but
in some degree of fidelity to their
oath by those who have our schools
in charge.
It is an absolute truth that the mo­
rale and efficiency of the teaching
force in our schools today are higher
than ever before and that the teach­
ers as a body are giving faithful and
efficient service.
TAGGING OF MACHINES
CONTINUED THIS WEEK
In an effort to define the traffic
laws 3o plainly that Portland motor-
____
S'StS will have a better

down-
town rules, the general tagging of
machines which were parked without
lights continued this week.
That portion of the city ordinance
which requires lights on all parked
machines between one hour after sun­
set and one hour before sunrise, was
one of the most unpopular of all traf
fic regulations. No favorites were
played, police machines being tagged
as well as others.
Following numerous accidents, in
which drivers have collided with dark
cars, police were instructed to keep
'2P
lookout for such offenders.
Following their instructions to the
letter, numerous machines were dis­
covered in the down-town section, as
we]] as in residence districts, and all
were tagged.
