PORTLAND WOMEN'S VIEWS
ON' MARRIED TEACHERS.
It's a good thing- to have a few
married teachers in the ranks of
the teaching staff of Portland.
Teachers who are mothers
know best how to handle chil
dren. "Motherhood leaves of absence"
should not cause faltering: in
action by the Board of Educa
tion. So far as public opinion !
concerned teachers need not
"shoo" Cupid away.
To have a few more mothers
sprinkled through the ranks of the
school teachers of Portland would be
a very good thing to offset the dis
ciplinarian rigors of some possible few
"splendidly regular, icily null" sisters
of the spinsterhood, who. through long,
arduous application to the rod and rule,
have become, perchane, a wee bit
"hardened" or "bitter."
This, In substance, represents the
opinion of some of the leaders in wom
en's circles after viewing the de
cision of Judge Morrow Saturday in
reinstating Maud L. Richards (Mrs.
Oren R. Richards), who was dismissed
several months ago because she mar
ried. Furthermore, should the School Board
find itself face to face with the prob
lem of granting leaves of absence to
any of its married women teachers, it
need not falter in action. These rep
resentative leaders, reflecting public
sentiment, will stand firmly on the
side of motherhood.
Invitation Given Cupid.
Furthermore, if Cupid is lurking
around some of the younger school
marms of Portland, he needn't be shy
of public opinion. There are a great
many mothers Jn town who would
willingly have their offspring taught
by married teachers. In fact, if Cupid
needs a little encouragement there are
plenty of leaders in the Congress of
Mothers and Parent-Teacher circles
who will lend a hand and "tip" off the
School Board that the public hasn't
"The ruling of the court, I think. Is
right in the case of Mrs. Richards."
naid Mrs. Aristene Felts, president of
the Oregon Congress of Mothers. "Be
cause a woman is married should not
bar her from teaching unless she has a
young child of her own that needs her
attention. I can readily see that the
home duties in school might conflict,
and in a case of this kind, of course,
the home should come first. There can
be no question that a married woman
has just as clear vision and good in
fluence in handling: children as an un
married one, and in the case where
teachers are mothers the advantage is
often on their side. So far as the
public is concerned, I am sure It is on
the side of the teacher's right to marry
and continue her work if she is effi
cient." Efficiency Placed First.
Mrs. W. J. Hawkins, who is past
president of the Farent-Teacher Asso
ciation and who for 15 years taught
school herself, has decided views on
"Efficiency is the first thing to be
considered," said Mrs. Hawkins. "All
other things being equal there is no
justice in barring a teacher just be
cause she marries. Suppose she does
marry in mid-term? When is a teacher
going to have her courtship or choose
her time for marrying, with eight or
nine months of school work, if she
doesn't have the privilege of marrying
in mid-term? Must we restrict mar
riage to vacation periods? We have
numerous men teachers who are mar
ried and provide for their families in
that work. Except for certain exigen
cies, a woman Is as well fitted to con
tinue her teaching as men are. Fur
thermore, it is to be expected married
teachers will become mothers in some
instances. In these I most certainly
believe the School Board would be per
forming a public duty and performing
the public's bidding. In granting neces
sary leave of absence. ' When the time
comes that she can return to school
work and retain her efficiency without
sacrificing the duties of the home,
there is no just reason for debarring
Mother Held Natural Teacher.
In the case of mother-teachers I fa
vor them heartily, when other condi
tions are met. A woman who knows
motherhood undoubtedly knows how to
handle and teach. 6he is the natural
and original teacher. Certainly mother
teachers can understand what, perhaps,
unmarried teachers cannot in children.
I do not say all teachers should be
married, but when the mother Instinct
makes Itself manifest in the teacher,
it should not he curbed. If a court
of justice or a School Board could
understand the beauties of motherhood
there would be no question ng this.
There are some teachers who have de
voted their lives faithfully to teach
in ar and have excluded all lse.
"Some of these have gone through
It without becoming bitter or hardened
or unresponsive to children's appeals
and their needs. But on the other hand,
pome few become rigorous, so to speak.
Surely to have married teachers in the
ranks is a blessing to offset this other
influence. The married teachers whom
I know discharge their duties most ad
mirably, especially those who are
Mrs. Isaac Swett, president of the
Portland Council of Jewish Women,
"I can see no reason for disuallfy
lng a teacher because Bhe marries and
I believe the court action will be up
held by everyone. I believe, further
more, there should be no argument or
bickering over "policy' in granting
leaves of absence to married teachers
when good and sufficient cause is
shown. And, I believe also the posi
tion should be held open for her until
the time comes when she can resume
her school work, if she has devised a
proper way of attending to her home

DIES IN FIRE
Frank Billyer's Body Found in
Ruins of His Home.
THREE OF FAMILY ESCAPE
Firemen Do Not Know Owner Is In
Lake-Street House Destroyed In
Early Morning Smoking in
Bed Possible Cause.
When the fire which stripped a story
and a half dwelling at 678 Lake street
shortly after S o'clock yesterday morn
ing was extinguished, the charred body
of Frank Billyer. 60 years old. was dis
covered In the skeleton of twisted Iron
and springs that had been his bed. The
ashes were taken charge of by Deputy
Coroner Smith, and funeral arrange
ments will be made today.
Mr. Billyer. who was a retired la
borer and owned his home and the
property where he lived, slept alone in
a small room, fashioned in the attic of
his modest residence. His wife and
two children slept below. Mr. Billyer
received no warning of the fire, the
exact origin of which is not known,
and had no chance to escape from the
flames which surrounded his bed.
Flnm Do Net Knw.
The firemen, of Engine Company No.
6 did not know when they arrived that
there was anyone in the burning build
ing: but. had they been aware of the
presence of Mr. Billyer. they could not
have saved him, for the upper part of
the dwelling was a mass of swirling
The fire was first seen by a watch
man at the nearby crematory. He tele
phoned in the alarm. The blaze was
then creeping around the chimney,
covering an area about four feet
There are two assumptions as to the
origin of the fire. One Is that the
chimney, which was of terra cotta, was
defective, and that sparks In a crevice
had smouldered until the shingles
caught fire. The other is that Mr.
Billyer may have been responsible for
the fire, because of a habit he Is known
to have had of smoking in bed.
Clear Held Possible Cans.
A carelessly thrown match or imoul
dering cigar stub might have been the
cause, according to Fire Captain
Mr. Billyer Is said to have been a
former employe of the Western Clay
Manufacturing Company, but to have
been retired for some time. His widow
was hysterical and could only moan,
"My man. my man." while neighbors
tried to comtort her.
The house, which was only partially
insured, was a total loss.
Patrolman H. S. Van Valkenburgh
was one of the first to enter the struc
ture after the fire had been quenched
and found the body of Mr. Billyer.
