J.. 8. Winters in a statement today
'.declared that the alleged political am
bitions of Dr.'B. A. Sommer are re
sponsible for his failure to secure the
contract despite that he was the low
"My bid on the school was $112,777.
and tlfe next lowest bidder was the

"The bidders were not apprised of
the, time of the meeting of the board,
but we were suspicious, and had one of
the stenographers tell us when the
meeting started. At 4:25 yesterday
afternoon we were summoned by tele
phone message. .
"The action was railroaded through.
Dr. Alan Welch Smith proposed that
the contract be let to Boyajohn & Ar

contractors, although their bids were

"TV Rnmmer wanter this contract
to go to the- company that received the
bid through political motives," Mr.
Winters charged. ''He plans to be a

employ union labor exclusively, while
the other two bidders, both lower, are

. the labor unions by this. Dr. Sommer
should not spend the taxpayer's money
Id this way."
A meeting of the employers' asso
ciation was secretly held last nlgnt,
Mr. Winters declared, and it was de-
elded to make a strong protest against
the board's action. j
Mr. Winters had the contract for the
, construction of the Falling and Alns
.worth schools, and In the latter case,
... due to the "open shop" policy, is said
lo have had considerable labor trouble.
"In selecting a general contractor
.to build the Couch school building
the board. Dartlcularly myself and
Dr. Alan Welch Smith, were guided by
past experiences and a determination
to see that the district, got 100 cents
''worth of work for every dollar ex-
pended." said Dr. A. 10. Sommer, to
day, answering Winters' charges.
. "I am not running for office and I

troversies. In choosing our general
, contractor the proposition of an open
or closed shop principle never en

' The truth of the matter Is, I think
' that Mr. Winters is a tricky Individ

fact that the board has had trouble
With him before and 1 made up my
- mind that I for one did not Intend
to have any more.
"Winters was the general "contractor

ordered not to. Our Inspectors had

bid would have been $116,687 and Boy
