TO DRIVE "REDS"
OUT OF SCHOOLS
RESOLUTIONS AIM AT
TEACHERS AS WELL
Principals of Chicago high and grade schools gathered in conference yesterday in the Mallers building to discuss the systematic "innoculation" treatment which is being resorted to by the heads of the board of education in halting the spread of bolshevik germs in local educational institutions.
Two Resolutions Passed
Two resolutions were passed during the session which aim directly at the "Red" evil. The text follows:
"Resolved that the Chicago Principals club deplores the spirit of Bolshevism existing to a more or less serious extent not only among the pupils but also the educational force of the schools.
"Resolved that the club heartily approves of the effort being made to eradicate this un-American spirit even to the extent of removing such individuals from the schools".
Praise for Bartholf
William J. Bartholf, principal of Crane Junior college and technical high school, was unanimously commended for his action recently suspending two students at the junior college for manifesting unpatriotic ideals.
The principals voted to investigate an attack which was made by Negroes last June on Edward McLaughlin, principal of the Dewey school. McLaughlin was said to have been beaten by adult blacks because of their misunderstanding on the treatment which Negro pupils were said to have received. A committee was appointed to determine whether to resort to legal action.
