Teacher Glenwood School Alberta, Oct.'25, mo. The Editor of the Herald, Lethbrldse, Alberts. Sir: JVoufd kindly allow In your Valuable'paper for the following report of the investigations ot the Teachers' Alliance Into tho cause for the dismissal of Morgan Coombs, principal and teacher, by the GlenwoodvlUe -school board? Our reasons for desiring this Inform- ation placed before, the public are: (1) A summary dismissal of a teach- er toy a school Aboard Is a grave re- proach to the professional reputation ot that (2) The Alliance elands higher status of the teaching profession and such sum- mary action on the part ol school proven to be taken for legitimate reasons, should receive full publicity -and such boards should be held responsible for their unfair treat- ment of teachers. A brief account of the facts of the case follows: Coombs, being duly and regularly engaged by the Glenwood school board to teach tirades, VII, ,'VHI.' and IX. in the Glenwood school and perform the duties of principal of that school, at a salary of per year, received notice from .tho-board after six weeks of service, that at tho 'end ot 30 days his services would not be re- quired longer.

After considerable" discussion pro and con by the School Board and the Executive it was finally agreed to con- tinue the contract with Mr. Coombs until Christmas 1920, every member ot the Board voting iu fivor of this and stating that as far as tbey could judge Mr. Coombs' vork had been satisfactory and efficient What action will be taken at Christ- mas remains unknown, in tho op- inion of the Alliance executive Sir.

CO. the "executive from Mr.1 Williams: Cardston, Oct. 14, 1920. Mr. Colden Woolf, Pres. of Cardston Local, A.T.A. Cardston. Dear Sir: In response to your request ot 14th Inst. I .wish to make this statement, that 1 have found Mr. .Morgan Coombs a capable teacher, careful and deliberate In his methods of: teaching, and also possessing that> unique qualifica- tion of a teacher: the power to im- part bis own vitality and vim to his obtaining discipline without effort and im- parting knowledget without, any strain: jj ft I have Inspected of Mr. Coombs on_two occasions, and have fl Tours slicer'ely, WILLIAMS. Upon receipt gf_s_uch a testimonial the executive were .certain that tbe casues in- quiry and "steps''werei'taken to get to Iho bottom of'Iho trouble. It.was soon learned 'board hail made'advances to.; Mr. Lv-Hatch, ot Frankburg, but formerly, of Glenwood, who Is a first class" professional leach- :lq. come back at a salary Hatch evidently not understanding the" sit- uation had do so, after giv- ing 30 days' notice to the Frankburg Immediately wired Mr. Hatch the particulars ot tbe case and arranged to moot .tho Glenwood school .board, to quire Into fiction. At triat' meeting, Held .in GlenWoofl In thbUveuing of 1920', which wcro present, the Glen- wood Orson Blgc- low, "chairman, also Mrs..'G? L. 'St'flrighain, secretary-treasurer ot .the district, sev- eral ratepayers, and.the Alliance exec- utive, Mr. G. L. Woolf, 'president; Wright, "vice-president; Miss Me- Cune, secretary, and Inspector of Schools, Mr. 0. Williams.." The follow Ing facts were learned: I. That great disunion existed in the Glontvooil board, ahd'tbat Mr. E. A. Law publicly acknowledged tho gross injustice bc-Ing "done to Sir. Coombs anil that such Injustice ihould be corrected and his dismissal was not caused by any Infflclency oh the part of thrs teacher, but by other two member! of the binn! Halening lo the supposed complaints of ccrtair. ratepayers: t. The- complaints, of certain' rate- payers'oroso from tho'fact that, Mr. Coombs had failed to .satisfy ft: gratia IX. girl last year In her difficulties in geometry, and that this girl had p-'f> ferred to go to Mr. Hatch, (thon prin- for help, and that such fact was taken by tho ratepayers in ques- tion, as proof of Mr. Coombs' Ineffi- ciency, In spilo of the fact that tho girl passed tho department exams. In all. subjects. Other alleged com- plaints were brought forward, that Mr. Coombs had failed In "chemistry and literature in grade Xl.V and being' a second class teacher, they to get cither a cheaper second class professional teacher or' a first class teacher for tho samo money. These complaints wore answered by Mr. Coombs, by his statement that he had written on thuso two subjects now and had every reason to believe ho has passed them although he had not yet received nollce, and further1 thtit the Board had bound themselves by contract to accept his services know- ing full qualifications and Hie salary they were to pay him., Mr. Williams' letter was also read to tbe Hoard In answer to these charges ot inefficiency. 3. It thus became evident that the reasons, for dismissing Mr. Coombs were not Inefficiency (at least from Iho Inspector's evidence'and the rec- ord of his students at eximlntlon) nor misconduct in any really a matter of Board claiming that Ihoy could get clnsa teach- er for''practically tho same price- ns they were paying for Mr. Coombs, tinil that therefore they woro justified In breaking their contract and disrupting Bclionla in order to carry out. Ibelr theu listen to the stories of the chil- dren of certain ratepayers and offer tbose stories, as excuses for ineffi- ciency, In direcl opposition to the splendid report given them by the inspector, 2nd thus persuade thonv selves that they were -justified in "fir- him when tbey thought they could secure another teacher, but fall- ing to remember how anxious they were lo engage Mr. .Coombs at their make them public. On behalf of tilt local alliance and also Mr. Qoombft, wo thask you for your kindness in the abovo In yonr esteemed paper. Yours sincerely, Cardston Local A.T.A.
