Summing up recent international developments, Pittman said t h a t Japan was "avoiding" definite answer o the American-British-Frcnch question whether she was building or planned to build 43,000-ton battleships. A denial that she is planning build 43,000-ton ships, Pittman said, does not mean that Japan won't build 42,000-ton vessels. Pittman pointed out that the Japanese authorities had told the Parliament to prepare Tor a long war, possibly with two foreign powers. 'The world situation has been getting worse since the military clique of Japan took control of the government," he said. "It has since strengthened its hold through the use of arbitrary power and violence, "The League of Nations admitted its impotcncy to deal with the Japanese Invasion of Manchuria and thus ended the only peaceful instrumentality in the world.

He said "it is very obvious that politics rtictaicd the action of the board after it h;id permitted Mrs. Swink to sign the contract for the current school term under provisions of the Teacher Tenure Act." The affirming opinion of the court set forth admissions contained in the agreed statement of facts filed In the proceedings. The court in its conclusion of law sets forth: "The conduct of the teacher was immoral in that it was a violation of criminal laws of this Commonwealth, hostile to the welfare of the general public s and harmful in its influence upon the mind and character of the pupils under her care. "The immoral conduct of ;ho appellant was a violation of her contract of July G, 1U37, with the school board. "Appellant's subsequent marriage did not absolve her from a charge of immorality. "Appellant was legally discharged and the action of the school board must be afttrmcd." "It is a serious matter to condemn the character of a teacher," Judge Cottom said, "Her husband is a WPA worker. His income when he works is $52,80 per month. His income is not sufficient to maintain himself, his wife and child in the manner in which she had been accustomed to live. It through death or otherwise she should lose him the result will be trpgic. To say to her by our approval of the action of the board that she is immoral is to say in effect that she may never be permitted to earn her living at the only trade or occupation she knows anything about. "I would not overlook the fact that her return to the school may invite some unpleasant remarks by those who do not know or do not understand the real facts. However, the fact that her pupils in her ungraded country school are nearly all of the primary grades, none above the sixth grade, will greatly lessen the likelihood ol any great difficulty on this account. "I would sustain the appeal and di- rcc'. the bo.ird to reinstate appellant in accordance with the grounds of her conduct. To do otherwise will result in incalculable wrong to appellant and to on innocent child. Through the marriage of the parents, it was rendered legitimate.

Again the motion to table the bill I was presented by Director Campbell I and on the roll call the four majority members approved it while the other three voted to pay the amount nnd end the matter. In the discussion someone had asked a question o£ whether or not there was a contract with the speaker and Superintendent Bela B. Smith explained the board had authorized the hiring of Dr. Myers, among others, and had allocated S500 as its share o£ paying expenses of the joint educational conference. , Director Daniel Durie asked that the solicitor explain the legal status o~ the bill and Attorney Braemcr pointed out that from a legal standpoint the man had been hired and that inasmuch as the directorate had not limited him beforehand on the subjects he was to use in addressing the teachers it \vas unable to penalize him now. The solicitor declared the speaker qualified as an expert in the capacity in which he had been employed and therefore was free to speak on any subject he chose. He made it clear that a legal obligation exists. "The thing I'm getting at is that we'll finally have to pay the bill," Mr. Duric said as the lawyer nodded assent. The majority group, however, felt that while it would be necessary to pay the bill it would defer action on it, adding that by tabling it there was no decision by the board to refuse payment. The superintendent asked that he be instructed what he is to inform the educator by mail whereupon President Weihc asked the board's permission to write Dr. Myers a letter. The president said he would inform Dr. Myers that his "speech did not please the community and was very decidedly against the wishes of the majority of the board." He branded the address as inflammatory. The board took no action, however, on the request. A.
