Law neqoires All Kind Shall Be
Carried as Treasurer of District
Ex-offlclo and la No Case to
Be Carried as a Trustee.
R. V. Cole, chairman of the finance
committee of the Board of Education,
backed by the other members, 8. P. Bost-
wlck and W. T. Bourke. hava discovered
that the treasurer of the school district
has been violating the law and the policy
of the board by holding school funds as
trustee instead of treasurer of the district.
'"It hasn't been the safest way," said
Mr. Cole, "and by advice of the board's
attorney, Carl Herring, we believe the
passage of a resolution ordering the treas
urer to hold funds aa treasurer and not
as trustee Is necessary." v
Mr. Herring said that under the present
system the treasurer, "In case anything
should happen," could not be held re
sponsible for the funds. The board has
passed the following resolution, suggested
and approved by Comptroller Fred H,
Cosgrove, covering the point:
Whereas, It has come to the attention of
the finance committee that the treasurer
is carrying certain funds of the school
district, notably ths bond redemption tuna
school Insurance fund, teachers' retire
ment investment fund and the Edward
Rosewater scholarshiD fund, aa trustee,
whereas It Is opposed to the policy of
this board and the law for the treasurer
to carry any fund of ths district In any
capacity other than as treasurer ex-of-
flclo of the Board of Education, and
Whereas, This practice haa grown up
through various administrations without
fault or criticism of any. one, but In order
to correct the practice and to eliminate
any doubt as to the required methods, be
Resolved. That the treasurer be. and Is
hereby directed and Instructed to carry
all funds of the school district as treas
urer of this district and in no case as
trustee. Transfer from one fund' to
another to be made upon written notice
to the treasurer ana comptroller by
proper resolution of the board trans
mitted by ths treasurer of this board.

Examiner, of Plays

LONDON, Dec. 2. London's dramatic
censor, George Alexander Red ford, known
officially as the "examiner of plays," re
signed his position today. Charles E.
Brookfield, who was appointed his as
sistant on November VI, last, is to suc
ceed htm. ,
It Is understood that Mr. Redford re
signed because Mr. Brookfield was ap
pointed to assist him. Mr. Redford
tonight declined to discuss the matter,
"After all, seventeen years of reading
bad plays is enough for toy man."
The appointment of Mr. Brookfield last
November caused considerable stir In the
advanced section of the dramatlo world,
represented by George Bernard Shaw and
Granville Barker, which denounced It aa
"shameful." Older managers, like Sir.
Herbert Beerbohm Tree, favored the ap-.

debated by attorneys today before the

North Carolina statute for the Inspection
of illuminating oil.
R. W. WInslow of Raleigh. N. C, con
tended that neither he nor any of the

were as "fictitious as the sea serpent, or
