Call Mass Sleeting.
TVmr will be no special election
September 1 to vote on the kinder
garten question for Portland public
schools. If there Is to be an election
aa old-fashioned district meeting must
be called to authorize it.
M. a. Munly. chairman of th School
Board, mad this announcement yes
terday at a special meeting called to
discuss the kindergarten question.
Since calling the special election last
week, tb board haa received legal
advice on the subject, snd Judge Munly
says the board has no authority to
call an election. This can only be
done by one of the cumbersome mass
meetings which were thought to have
oeen totally abolished by the Legis
lature. Only three members of the board
were present at last night's meeting.
A motion to call the masa meeting
and attempt to put the kindergarten
question before the voters was made
by Dr. Alan Welch Smith, but S. P.
Lockwood. the new board member, re
fused to second it. and no action was
taken. The question probably will
ansa again at the regular board meet
Roard Maa rawer.
Tb bill paaaed by the Legislature.
Judge Munly said, abolished the an
nual district school 'meeting for the
purpose of authorising a tax levy, but
did not endow tne School Board with
th power to call an election. This
power still rests alone with the old
fashioned maas meeting.
Judite Munly said he thought the es-
tabltaiiment of kindergartens la the
public scboola might entail too much
exponas at this time, but he was will
ing to see the matter laid befor the
mass meeting. Ir. Smith then moved
to call the meeting. Mr. Lockwood
said h would not second th motion.
'Before doing that." he said, "the
board should decide exactly what It
wants. We should get statistics on the
conduct of klndergsrtens In other
cities. We should Inquire Into the
probable cost, and we should know
wuetber we propose to do tnis as an
experiment or whether we want to I
make kindergartens a general thing."
'I thought this was all disposed oi.

Dr. Smith. "I think when a thing's

Then naud an argument between

Smith, th physician, on tb subject
of legal technicalities.
