Miss Sarah Scott, Educator, Dies ' Helped to Establish City's First Public High School in Boro Funeral services will be held tonight for Miss Sarah E. Scott, former principal and teacher, who more than a half century ago played a leading role in the establishment in Brooklyn of the city's first public high school and the first training school for teachers. The services will be held at 8 p.m. In Miss Scott's home, 713 Greene Ave., where she died Wednesday. She was 98. Miss Scott was principal of two Brooklyn schools in 1912 when the Board of Education ordered her retirement as the first employe affected by its newly enacted rule requiring the retirement of those who had reached 70. STOpi OF PROTEST The storm of protests raised at the time by friends, pupils and colleagues against the board's action revealed the reverence and esteem In which Miss Scott was held. She was described in an appeal by the Brooklyn Teachers Association as "intellectually,- socially and profes sionally so superior that her retire ment would be a distinctive loss to the school system." Today a group of Miss Scott's for- mer pupils paid tribute to her mem- ory. They prepared a statement which said: "She was an Inspiration to thou- sa"ds of teachers and her Influence will continue through them. The late Franklin Hooper, former director of the Brooklyn Institute, called Miss Scott the best-loved teacher in our city." She was born on Sept. 25, 1841, In Catskill, N. Y., and was graduated from the Rev. Dr. Haig's Academy in Hudson. STARTED WHEN 18 In 1860 at the age of 18 she came to the then City of Brooklyn and won her first teaching position in Public School 7, soon transferring to 25. When Vassar College was established in 1865, she became a member of the first staff there, as a professor of mathematics. Two years later she returned to Brooklyn to serve in Miss Harrison's private school on Clinton St., and then returned to the public system at Public School 11 on Washington Ave. In 1879, largely because of Miss Scott's efforts, the "Central Gram- mnr KrhnnT" fhp firsf Vifah chnnl n Brooklyn or Manhattan, was estab- lished, at Court and Joralemon Sts. It was moved to Nostrand Ave. and Halsey St. later, and was renamed Girls High School. REASON FOR NAME In an interview with a Brooklyn Eagle reporter in 1931, Miss Scott laughingly explained that the high school was called a grammar school "to keep from exciting the taxpayers" who were unprepared for sucli a radical advance in education and educational costs. In 1885 Miss Scott was a moving spirit in the establishment of the first Training School for Teachers on Berkeley Place, the predecessor of the Maxwell Training School for Teachers. She served as head of the school's faculty until 1904. On her retirement in 1912, Miss Scott was principal of Public School 140 at 60th St. and 4th Ave., an Institution with 2.000 students, and also principal of the Bay Ridge Evening High School for Women, which had 500 pupils. TAUGHT AT ADELPHI During her years at the Training School, Miss Scott also taught classes in psychology and pedagogy at Adelphi College. Adelphl conferred on her an honorary degree of Master of Arts. Miss Scott's nearest surviving relatives are Mrs. Margaret Winters, a niece, and Alfred D. Scott, a nephew, both of Springfield, Mass. The burial is to be held Saturday morning in the Hudson City Cemetery, Hudson, N. Y. Mrs. Lemmerman Will Aids Kin Elizabeth Lemmerman, widow of former County Clerk Fred G. Lemmerman, who died at her residence, 280 Vanriprhilt.

Inspector Hughes was born on Emmet St. and was a lifelong resident of Brooklyn. He retired from the police department about 21 years ago after a notable career in which, as deputy chief inspector in charge of Manhattan detectives, he took part in the Herman Rosenthal murder investigation which resulted in the execution of Lt Charles Becker. When the late President Theodore Roosvelt was police commissioner of New York he appointed Mr. Hughes as his clerical secretary. Inspector Hughes had been a member of the Montauk Club for 35 years. He was also a life member of Columbus Council, Knights of Columbus, and a member of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, the Holy Name Society of the Assumption Church, and Brooklyn Lodge, B. P. O. E. Surviving are his widow, Mrs. Mary A. Prosser Hughes; four sons, Edward P. Jr., Lester F, Joseph E. and Gerard E.; his daughter, Mrs. Rooney; a brother. John Hughes, and a sister, Mrs. Catherine Coleman'. would leave the Second Judicial District, source of a large share of the cases which reach the Court of Appeals, unrepresented on that bench. DRIVE INTENSIFIED Judge O'Brien's announcement on Dee. 6 that he intended to retire was the signal for a great wave of popular sentiment from all of Long Island and from Staten Island to roll up to Albany for the aappoint-ment of a judge from this district. The campaign was intensified when word spread that powerful forces were seeking to bring the appointment to the Bronx or Manhattan. The Brooklyn Bar Association, . ,,,,, r,a. .cciatmn , SuffoUc Coum Bar Associationi thfi R. Counl Bar Association j Brookyn Lawyers Assoclatlon resolutions which sent to tne Governor camng representation of this district in the Court of Appeals. The president and leading members of the Nassau County Bar Association and the Richmond County Bar Association sent telegrams to Albany embodying the same request, because time was short and it would be difficult, under the bylaws of those groups, to summon special meetings of the associations. Most prominently mentioned locally as timber for the Court of Appeals post have been Presiding Justice Edward Lazansky of the Appellate Division, Appellate Division Justice William B. Carswell and Justice Conway. In the Buffalo investigation Jus- tionism by local politicians and some municipal officials and has already seen 15 persons convicted or plead guilty, with 19 more in has been one acquittal. With the appointment of Justice Conway, the Court of Appeals will retain Its present political line-up of lour Democrats and three Re new Judges. ajCoiWay Appointment "an excellent appointment."
