Buildings and Equipment Committee, which was caned for the purpose of con-ferring with Comthlssioner ef Public Works Harry 8. Anderson, to select a supervising architect for the new . school houses to be erected in this city. Miss Annie Florence Brown and Harry Boyir de-manded an explanation last evening at the regular session of the board of edu cation as to why they were not asked to meet with the other fllrectors. School Director Boyle wanted to know who was running the school department and pro tested against the recommendation made by 'Anderson to permit J. J. Donovan, who haa been chosen the architect for the new city hall, to direct the work on the new school buildings. "We want to select our own archl tect," said Boyle. "We were fleeted to attend to matters pertaining to the schools of this city and I don't see why we are not allowed to run the business of the department We should decide who should supervise the work on the new struftturea.-and not Harry 8. Ander son." The name or the architect was withheld from Directors Brown and Boyle until last evening. It was the first intimation that they had received that J. J. Donovan would be the srchltect. "When' a matter of such great Import ance aa the building of new schout houses Is concerned. 1 think, the entire board of education should be consulted In the matter," said Miss Brown. - "It Is not fair to the public nor to the directors omitted. I had no Invitation to be present, neither did Mr. Boyle. I don't know who cailcd the meeting. All I know Is that I received no notice of the special committee meeting, t Commissioner Andersen, who was summoned to appear before the board, explained that the charter made it obligatory upon the board of education to make I requisition upon the commissioner of pub- lie works for plans when new building! were to be constructed. Anderson stated that the board could not give these details without first consulting an expert and that in the conference be bad suggested that an expert be employed. Despite the protests by Director Boyle, the motion to appoint Donovan carried. He waa the only member of tho board who voted against tbe measure. PASS RESOLUTION.

NO SITE PURCHASED. Believing that the directors were ready to select ths site for the new Manual Training and Commercial high school. Director Harry J.
