Protest by Local Firms Pre4
sented to School Board 1
j Last Night
Grievances of ; local Insurance
men were aired before the school
board last night and constituted
an attack upon P. M. Gregory,
head of the insurance committee
of the board. A more equitable
and : pro rata distribution of the
$175,000 Insurance on the new J.
L. Parrlah junior high school was
the basis of the controversy. The
visitors, 16 In number, were giv
en a courteous bearing but ac
complished nothing for the time
being.; j. . ,., ; i I . ;.
Director Gregory admitted that
he had broken his agreement to
a committee of the insurance men
after he had accepted their list
of pro ratings. Thia was done, be
said, after he bad formed the
opinion that the committee failed)
to represent all the insurance
firms of the city. The delegation
was informed by Dr. H. H. ding
er, chairman, that this was the
first time he was aware of the
fact that they, had solicited busi
ness and that perhaps the insiili
ance had been placed where it
was chiefly because of the aggres
siveness of the solicitors. The in
surance committee of the school
board had placed the insurance'.
It was said, with Insurance agen
cies dealing exclusively with . in
suranie .and not combining this
business ' with, real estate, as it
was believed firms giving their
exclusive time to the one business
would give the. best service. . ;
At a special meeting of a num
ber of insurance men during the
morning, their viewpoint, was set
forth In a document signed by 1J
different firms. Those signing
were S. G. Robinson, A. C. Bohrn
etedt, W. H. Grabenhorst & Co..
W. G. I Krueger, A. Copley, J. 0,
Tlbbits, W. McLaren. Winnie Pet
tyjohn, Anderson & Rupert,
Square Deal Realty company, J.
A. Mills, John II. Scott and Paul
R. Hendricks. It
The! following report was pre
pared by the Insurance men after
their meeting, setting forth their
views upon conditions' as they ap
pear at present:; , ;
'Gradually in the course of
past years has grown id in Salem
a eystem of placing the insurance
of the school -district with only a
favored few, bo much so has this
worked out that at the present
time three firms carry practically
three fifths of the half million
dollars now in force.- The re
maining two-fifths Is parcelled out
among some 15 or 20 insurance
men of Salem in small amounts
ranging from $2000 to J22.000.U
"When the new J. L. Parrish
Junior high school was to be built,
a , number of resident taxpayers
and writers of insurance felt that
the committee of the school board
in whose hands was the placing
of this insurance, rightfully should
consider them as entitled to a di
vision of this new insurance. On
this basis a number of them held
a meeting for the purpose of lay
ing this idea before the commit
tee of the-board. A special com
mittee was appointed at this meet
ing, consisting of Paul Hendricks
of the firm of Beck & Hendricks.
J. M. Rupert of the firm of An
derson & Rupert, and J. -A. Mill.

This committee waited
Gregory! chairman ' of
upon P. M.
committee on insurance, and laM
the matters before him. j After sev
eral, meetings with htm he "gave
them a verbal understanding that
this insurance amounting to SI 75,
000 would be alloted to insurance
men wlio'.had little or none of
the protection carried. This whs
agreeable to all concerned and
during the course of Construction
of this new school house, there
was alloted $66,000 of the $175,
000 to these new pienjin the line,
but ' later ' on when the building
was accepted front the j contractors
the remaining $109,000 was al
loted to those in many instances
who held already the greater por
tion of the; policies!. This is
where the insurance men feel $hvt
they have been uajastly treated
by Mr. 'Gregory, ;.nd that he 4ij
liberately backed up on hiswora.
"We felt that the entire Insur
ance plan for district No. 24
should be remodeled and dlvideH
on an equal basis as
city of Portland, fand
it Is in the
as it is In
the municipal insurance of the
city of Salem and as near as may
be in the county of Marion. This
seemed to be Impracticable at this
time and was not Urged. 'Yet.
this is the. real fair way to treat
every one equallyl j
