SCHOOL COMMISSIONER Editor Constitution I have read the card by Commissioner Glenn published In your issue cf yesterday defending himself against the charge of illegally Issj- Iftg a state license to R. B C Farr of this count As the statements made by the commissioner reflect upon the county board cf education of which I was a m ember and for a time the preside In that the board is represented as den ing to an old confederate soldier a rtate license to which he was entitled and is further grossly misleading as to the membership of the board at the time the license was issued I cannot allow the statements to go to the public without at least some of the facts accompanying them IAS Poole E S Morris and" T P Kimberly as named by the commission er were not members of the county board of .education at the time the license In question was Issued nor had they been for more than eighteen months. Dr I 8 Hopkins p Pattlllo and I succeeded these gentlemen aa. members of the boa-d under the action of the grand Jury of the county. In Ma 1896. Judge John N Fain the former commissioner for the county had been de d as I recall nearly two years 2 W R B C Farr was one of the teachers of the county hen Dr Hopkins. Mr. Pattillo and I came on the board. In the fall of 189 more than a ) ear after w had been members of the board of education the county license of Mr Farr expired and. as he had not taken the Vegular examination he was given as is provided by law a special examination that he might have opportunity to have his license renewed If he so deserved The board did not consider the fact that he had be n a most worthy confederate soldier nor do 1 jet think this fact entered as an element of illness for license as a county teacher S. December 17,1837 the county board of education met and on special request of Major R. J Gulnn the county commissioner graded Mr Farr' examination papers themselves Under the Instructions given the board by Bute School Commissioner Glenn we couM not e Mr. Farr even a third-grade license 4 Without consulting the count rd of education or the county schiol commissioner as organized for nearly two years. State School Commlsslmer Glenn turned down this action of the county board of education and he seeks now to defend his action by publ' h'ng U' names of A. S. Poole B. 8 Morris and T. P. Klmb rly as members of the d and John N Fain as the county commls sloner when neither of then gentlemen bad beea connected with the board 'or about eighteen months or more. This ac Uon. I -repeat is o grossly misleading that I am cot willing for It to go unchallenged. 6. When Information reached the board that CommisBitner Glenn had Issued license-.to Mr. Farr the board peremptorily demanded its recall The commissioner formally notified the board that the Ikense had been recall If Mr Farr was not entitled to the license as would appear from this last action. th a U was Illegally Issued by the commissioner. If he was entitled to the license then Mr. Farr as greatly wronged in haviivg the licence withdrawn or demand made fay the board or upcn demand ma-le by any one else During toy term as governor of the state and ex president Of the. state board of education the state board never passed upon the Issu ance of a single state license for the reason that toe law givee this privilege tovth state yebool coBunlssloner alone provided that at the m time such Uce&so cM-cnUr be isgtted to teachers S J who have taken regular. net special examinations in the counties and who e papers are submitted for grading to the state tchool commissioner and whose moral and professional character are c rtlfled by the county school commis- Floaer and who are recommended by bjm for this high honor Finally It Is passing s-trtnge and 5TO 31 misleading that Commissioner Glenn should seek to Justify Ms actljn as iu thorized under the requirements of the law by giving to the public the name cf an honored gentleman as county commissioner after h had been d ad near y two years and the narues of other en tlemen as members of the board who had not b n connected with the board for about the same length of time It is passing strange tl it Commissioner Glenn did not issue the license In question ULUI after Mr. Fur had failed in swM.ii on before the count Jo it Is more than strargo th t Commissioner Glenn should issuu a stall 11 o with cut the ill vii pap- rs of the applicant before him.
