Newspaper Publihen AMD TIIUKSDAY, JANUARY 10. 1!>I7 The Board's Dilemma Tliu Hoard of Education today finds itself in a very unpleasant and embarrassing position. It has been accused, nut for the first time, of being something j less than frank in its dealings with the public, and of making known only in part its actions on matters pertaining to what probably is the most important department in the borough government. The difference, this tune, is that the criticism comes from a member of the board. Dr. Edwin K. Cumin has resigned from the board announcing pub- lidy his disapproval of the policy of holding secret meetings, details of which were revealed only in part, at best. Newspapermen have long been aware of the condition, have many times called it to the attention of hoard members and made mention of it critically in.their reports. Too often have they been kept waiting in the outer chambers, beyond the appointed meeting time, the while real .news was being made and throttled by the hoard in secret session. It is re- fresliing Jo find that the practice has finally becolne distasteful to a member of the'board,'although any such reaction is modified by the reali'/ation that the blowoff was long overdue. And there- is also a pang of disappointment at the failure of some other members to take similar action, but short of resignation, ot course. Current developments spring from the controversy over whether the board agreed to pay William. Karaban if^UU or $300 for his services as football coach during the past season, Supported by Dr. Cut-ran, Mr. Karaban contends that the fee agreed upon was $500. The records of the board, and a majority of the members agree that the sum was $300. Newspapermen, and their accounts of the original announcement, steadfastly maintain that the hoard made known, without previous public discussion or enlightenment, that Mr. Karaban would be paid $">00 for his services. Whatever plans Mr. Karaban may have for seeking to obtain the balance be feels is rightly due him, and ho has made it clear that he is more concerned with the principle of the incident than with the amount involved, it is quite evident that, at the moment tlie^ recorded .minutes and the near-unanimity of the hoard will prevail against him. Hut whatever the final outcome-, of the case at hand, it has proved to one member of the board that star chamber sessions are not in the best public interest. Of that fact we have long been certain. Perhaps, in consideration of the embarrassment of hidden eggs coming home to hatch an unpleasant odor in this case, other members of the hoard will insist that future business be conducted opcn- Iv. ^. If the Kuomnitang can get itself'to- gether and begiiHo do a job, China may unite, or t'ederalizeln some way, and get somewhere. If not, hope lessens,, and the new. Constitution recci&Jv signed will soon be forgotten. \_ Do You Remember? One Year Ago It' was announced that S.

They cannot understand that Chinese citizens, given a chance, might pull themselves out of their worst, troubles. So they temporize, ask for loans, and nothing improves.

The National Board of Fire Underwriters has compiled a list of 10 safety rules for hotel guests. The recommendations are based on official engineers' studies of hotel fires. Tbe same rules would apply in any large apartment or office building. The following; rules may save your life ami the lives of others. 'Read them carefully. 1. Upon arriving at your hotel room, investigate all possible means of emergency exit. •2. Head carefully any instructions to guests posted in room. ;]. Be as careful in a hotel as you would be in vour own home. Do not smoke in bed' 4. If you detect smoke or evidence of fire give immediate information to the management. ,j. Close transom door at once. (>. Take time to plan your exit, 7. Feel the door before you open it. If it docs not feel hot, open it slightly. Hold head away, brace door with foot. Put hand across opening to test heat of air. 8. If hallway appears safe, use the already planned exit. i). Tf hallway is not safe, stop up any opening or cracks by which smoke may enter, using wet towels, sheets, blankets, mattresses, etc. 10. Open window slightly and stay near it. Keep calm, avoid hysteria. Do not jump out. Many lives have been saved by closing doors and transoms, blocking all openings for hot air and gases from .hallway, and calmly awaiting rescue. .
