Improvements on the 5S school build

recommendations favored at a meeting
. of the repairs committee of the School
-Board last night Is adopted al inurs
rinv'a Board meeting.
Dr. Alan Welch Smith, of the Board,
, - said last night that radical changes
may be made this Fall In various mat
. i ters pertaining to the schools. One of
: these, he said, may be the removal of
nearly all portable auditions i
.- crowded schools. AH pupils at crowded
, .rhi. will be forced to attend the
i next nearest school to their home this
' Fall, according to the reportea opin-
: Ion of the majority of tne tsoaro.
nimln Reason Explained.
th. miins-. if adopted, will affect
. vera I hundred pupils.
"The main reason why pupils are in
duced to attend schools which are at a
' Kreater distance from their homes than
11 inother school is because of our pres
'. . -.,,. nf nnvlnz nrlncipals, de-
; clared Assistant Superintendent of
i Schools Rice last night. "A principal
under our system is paid Jo a room
r ier month salary. If a principal can
Induce several hundred students to
hia school and several port-
i ables are needed to house the surplus
, number, it means 5 a month extra for
the principal for eacn porwmo.
"In many cases where I have ordered
pupils to attend a more conveniently
located and less crowded school, the
; parents have objected and through
i 'ii' in the School Board have man-
: to disreeard my orders. We hajre
63 vacant school rooms and yet about
' 20 of our schools are crowded. If the
. School Board will support me, I will
" order all pupils to attend their near
' est school."
? Dr. Smith said he would support Mr.
7 Rico's plan.
Inspection of Boil-lines Ordered.
Dr. Smith declared that several of
' the school building were unsafe and
that if a fire were to occur many
: lives might be endangered.
"I don't want to have to think. In
' the event of a fire, that the careless
ness of the Board and myself was the
cause of several hundred pupils losing
their lives," he said. "I want the
Xire department to conduct a careful
inspection of all schools and report
what action should be taken to lessen
the danger from fire."
The committee addressed a request
to the fire department for an inspection
of school buildings. The School Board
is considering several offers to trade
the Buckman School building and
- grounds for a larger plot in the vicin
. lty of East Fifteenth and East Glisan
streets. The budget provides for a new
- building for Buckman School.

Commissioner of Finance Stands
With Executive, He Says Mean
while Fourth Does Not Prom
ise to Be Glorious.
TACOMA. Wash., June 30. (Spe
cial.) Mayor Fawcett announced to
day that he would not sign a single
city pay warrant unless City con
troller Meads recognizes the salary or
dinance recently before the Council,
which cut salaries $10,000. No court
order can change his views and he will
go to Jail If necessary, rather than
"give in," he said.
Commissioner of Finance Atkins saia
he would "stand by the Mayor and
would also refuse to sign the warrants
and would "go to jail if need be.
Meanwhile, the glorious Fourth does
not promise to be so "glorious" to city
employes, who have been awaiting
their month's pay to provide them with
wherewithal for a celebration.
Controller Obdurate, Too.
Controller Meads says he will not
recognize the Fawcett salary orai
nance and will refuse to draw the war
rants of those affected by the change
until either the Fawcett ordinance or
the former ordinance is declared illegal.
If John Mead holds up some of the
salaries I will have to refuse to sign
any of the warrants," said Mayor Faw
cett. "If he has n right to hold back
the pay of some of the employes, I have
a right to hold back all the pay. I can
refuse to sign anything if I want to.
I don't care what the court says.
I will go to Jail, before I will give in."
Mr. Atkins With Mayor.'
Tm with the' Mayor," said Commis
sioner Atkins. "I will go to Jail with
the Mayor if need be."
I will draw us the pay warrants
and sign them, with the exception of
warrants for 11 positions affected by
the new ordinance, of which the valid
ity Is under dispute," said Controller
Meads. "If the Mayor or the Commis
sioner of Finance refuses to sign them,
that is not my fault. I will turn the
warrants out of this office all ready
for signatures of the Mayor, City Clerk
and Commissioner of Finance. Then
it's tip to the courts."
Meanwhile city employes are very
glum with a Montatnaro Festo here
and no pay in sight. .
