of Action to Take In
the Case. "
A janitor may lose his Job and certain
rabid opponent of the Km franchise
ordinance may be called to account for a
disturbance at a meeting held In Howard
Kennedy school last Monday night Mem
ber C. T. Walker of the Board of Educa
tion reported to the school board last
night that such ft meeting had been held
In violation of the suto kw forbidding
discussion of sectional or political ques
tion In school buildings. President E.
. Holovtchlner, Mr. Walker, Superintend
ent E. U. Graff, Superintendent of Dulld
Irgs Duncan Flnlayson and Attorney
Carl Herring were In conference behind
closed doors for halt an hour and tlie
matter was discussed.
-Offense Not Crime.
"While the offense Is not a crime," said
Attorney Herring, 'It Is specifically pro
vided In the law that the school buildings
hall be opened for certain purposes and
the settling of gas franchise questions Is
not one of these purpose. About the
only Ihlne the board can do Is to fire
The Janitor Is Peter It. Hansen. It Is
presumed he allowed the Omaha View
Improvement club, which- held the meet
irg. to gather In the school and discuss
llie gas franchise ordinance, which Is
being voted on today.
' We'll have to Investigate the matter,"
said President Hotovtchlner of the hoard
of J&ueatlon. "The Janitor was without
authority to open the school for such a,
meeting. Upon his shoulders will prob
ably rest the blame."
Can't Sell Baratoo-a. Site,
At the secret conference held by
HoloTtchlner, Graff, Walker, Flnlayson
and Herring the proposition of selling the
present site of Saratoga school was dis
cussed. "It looks like we can't soli the site and
give a valid deed," said Holovtchlner,
"because ths ground was donated to the
school district in W61 when Nebraska was
stilt a territory and under the grant
reverts to the heirs of the former
owners." The board had planned to erect
a new school on a batter site. Attorney
Herring will go Into the matter thor
oughly and give the board a written
opinion on the question.
