Girls Desiring Training May
Be Given Special Course
of One Year '
Action on the recommendation of
Dr. F. E. Downes, city school super
intendent. to abandon the teachers'
training school after this year, will
be taken probably at the next meet
ing of the board of directors.
It is understood that the directors
will give tlieir approval to discontin
ing the school, provided a plan is ar
ranged and carried out to give a
similar course as post-graduate work
at the Central High school. This
suggested when it was found that
tlie board members were not unani
mous In their opinion about closing
the training school.
According to the plan suggested
girls who complete tlieir course in
the Central High school and desire
to take a training course of at least
one year, would be given an oppor
tunity to continue their studies for
that purpose. The present training
school, conducted in the Steele
building, has only fifteen students
enrolled. Dr. Downes reported, and
unless a much larger number would
decide to take the course this fall
he said the expense of conducting
the classes seems too great in com
parison with the number of teach
ers which are eventually secured by
the city.
At a recent board meeting it was
decided to have Prof. J. J. Brehm,
district supervisor, and Prof. A. B.
Wallize, of the Technical High
school faculty, relieved from duty
March 1; so that they can begin
preparations for the opening of the
two junior high schools in the fall.
They will be the principals of the
buildings and must arrange the
courses of study, recitations sched
ule, selection of necessary books and
other details.
Changes in the supervisory meth
ods to become effective when the in
termediate or junior schools are
opened, were approved by the board
more than a year ago. Recently
supervisors and supervisory prin
cipals were appointed under the plan
as outlined by Dr. Downes. These
appointments, effective in the fall

pervisor to supervisor of advanced
grades and Miss Anne U. Wert, from

School to supervisor of the primary

of National Republican Ad
ministration Next Year
Wlllianviport, Feb. 13. The

event on account of the presence of
Governor 'William C. Sproul. who re
sponded to the toast. "The Republican
Party Lieutenant Governor Edward

L'pon alighting from the train the
Governor was met by a reception com
mittee headed by Mayor Hoagland,
and was kept busy for a time shaking
hands with friends. He then went to
his room at the Park Hotel and was
iloseted until afted 6 o'clock with his
rrtvate secretary, Harry F. McDevitt.
He brought with him papers and docu
ments, and the afternoon was devoted

Bihl and Robert Stucker, Magnelli
and Schmehl.
Kccd Objects
Solicitor Fox also read sections
of the Clark act which prohibits of
ficers from accepting, demanding,
or receiving any money ai a re
ward for their services other than
the salary provided by Council He
read other portions of the act, and ;
of the civil service law passed in
1917, giving Council power to act
in cases where charges are prefer
red against any officers.
When the Bihl hearing began Mr.
Reed objected to the general terms
used in the charges against him,
stating that he had no opportunity to
prepare a defense because the in
formation made no specific allega
tion about the misconduct.
Mayor Keister was the first wit
ness called and after being sworn
by Mr. Burtnett he told of the com
plaint which had been made about
Bihl and Schmehl and the hearing
which was held at his office. Bihl
did not deny the charges which
Schmehl made against him but said
that he was grabbed by Schmehl at
a patrol box early one morning and
Schmehl warned him not to continue
calling names.
Chief of Police J. Edward Wetzel
testified that Schmehl came into his
office on the morning of January
21 and said he could not stand BihL's
abuse any longer, telling about the
incident at the patrol box the night
before when he attempted to talk
to Bihl and the latter drew his club
and warned him to keep away. Af- j
ter the disturbance in the basement
Chief Wetzel said Lieutenant J.
Frank Page called him by phone to
report it and then both Bihl and
Schmehl were ordered to appear b'e
fore the Mayor for a hearing.
Cross Examined
When cross-examined the chief
said Bihl charged Schmehl with ag
gravated assault and battery and
horse stealing. Schmehl was called
to testify against Bihl and told the
commissioners he had repeatedly
been called "Charlie Chaplin" and
a "German spy" by the officer. He
related his effort to ask Bihl to stop
this and the attempted attack the
latter made at headquarters. On
this occasion Bihl took off his over
coat and came over to the table at
which Schmehl was playing pinochle
and said "I'll lick you now you >
Charlie Chaplin German spy." j
Schmehl went upstairs and report- !
ed Bihl's actions to Lieutenant i
Officers Charles L. Anderson, 125 ;
Washington street: John W. Hess,
528 Race street: Martin L. Keys.
214 South River street, and O. W.
Carson, 344 Hummel, street, who
were among those in the basement
at the time Bihl threatened Schmehl.
gave similar evidence corroborating
Schmehl's account.
Bihl. in defense, fixed all the in
cidents about a week before the
him—on or about January 22—teil
time stated in the charge against
ing Council that the trouble in the
basement occurred January 15. He
explained that he only intended to
"kid" Schmehl, but that the latter
took it seriously and got "mad."
"Knock His Ears Oft"
Bihl's testimony in part was:
"When Schmehl came up to me
about 2 o'clock in the morning lie
grabbed me and told me this 'kid
ding' had to stop. I told him to go
away or I'd knock his ears off. La
ter, I don't know just which evening
it was, down in the basement, I paw
! Schmehl and it made me red-licaded
to have a kid who just came on a
district talk to me like he did. and
I went up to him and said. 'Come
on; my job is worth as much to me
as yours is to you.'
"I didn't charge him with horse
stealing or call him a German spy.
I preferred a charge of assault and
battery against him io the Chief
and the Chief said 3Se the Mayor
Tno Mayor told me the Chief "was
the one who should hear the
When Solicitor Fox endeavored to
get Bihl to say openly that his in
tention in taking oft his coat and
approaching Schmehl in the base
ment at headquarters was to start
a light. Bihl evaded the questions
until finally he said< "Of course, I
would have scrapped with him. ' I
pulled my coat off to fight."
Eox Asks Questions
Mr. Fox then said: "You knew it
was your duty as a police officer to
preserve peace and order. You took
an oath when you became an officer
to do so. and you knew at the time
that you tried to start this fight that
you had taken such an' oath. Sup
pose Schmehl would have fought,
what would have happened'"
"We would have had a fight," Bihl
"You had a revolver, didn't
you 7"
"Yes, but I don't know whether
it was loaded."
"You didn't regard what might
have happened if In the heat of pas
sion you had pulled that revolver,
did you?"
Bihl did not answer the question.
It's Got to Stop
Curtis E. Banks, 1333 Wallace
street, employed at St-hell's bakery,
| was called by the defense to show
thut on the night Schmehl stopped
Bihl he was angry and had threat
ened to attack Bihl. Banks said
Schmehl came into the bakery'and
made these remarks:
"Bilil's got to stop calling me
Charlie Chaplin. He has ovorybody
else on the force scared of hint, but
I'm damned if I am."
Banks said: "I warned Schmehl
piat Bihl was a big fellow, and
Schmehl said, The bigger they, come
the harder they fall.' "
Rode to Work
Mr. Moyer, owner of the horse
whicli was returned, who gave the
officers the money, said in part:
"When the officers came into the
house Magnelll remarked that It
would cost Schmehl 35 to got his suit
cleaned, and I said 'I guess it will.'
After the second horse came up to
the house and we put it away we
went in again and they hinted agasn
about leaning their clothes. I gave
them each thirty-five cents to get rid
of them." Testimony had the amount
fixed at thirty cents.
He also said he could not under
stand why there was a halter on the
horse the patrolman returned, when
he had tied the animal in the stable
with a rope the night before.
Mr. Banks was recalled to tell
about the remarks of Schmehl and
Magnelll, made early on the morning
the horse was returned, after they
left the Moyer house at Twentieth
and Brookwood streets.
"Schmehl and 'Mag' ante into the
bakery." Banks began, "and Schmehl
said. 'What do you think of that
cheap , he only gave us thirty
cents and 'Mag' gove him the hint,
he wouldn't give us any more.' Mag
nelll said 'Schmehl ought to liavo
been riding a cow, he fell off the
horse he was riding.' They both
said they had two horses and were
riding from box to box ringing in."
August Schelhas, 436 South Fif
teenth street, another employe at the
bakery corroborated Bank's Chief
ments. Mayor Kelster and Chief
Wetzel were called to tell about the
hearing at the Mayor's offie when
the charges were brought against
the two officers.
Patrolman John F. Hicks was the
last witness called for the city. He
said that one night last summer his
wife called him and when he looked
out the window from his bedroom,
lie saw two officers ridingup the
street on a horse. He said he
couldn't tell whether they were city

Magnelll and Schmehl denied they,
had been riding around on the two
horses, that tliey made any demand
of money from Moyer and that they
made any statements *to Banks and
Schelhas nbout using horses. Both
admitted accepting the money, but
said they refused it a number of
times, and finally took it to buy
cigars and eoffe e as Moyer suggested.
They admitted that they said it
would cost several dollars for clean
ing Schmehl's suit. Schmehl said he

about it. and the two returned It.
Mr. StncUer addressed council and
declared he did not think either of
the men had violated the Clark act.
He said that if they bad accepted
the money and used it to have

no offense as the city would not pay

Officer of State Board of Pub
lie Charities Discusses
Free Service System
The method of estimating the
amount of free treatment given by
hospitals to patients, upon which the
state appropriation to the hospitals
is to be based by the present Legis
lature, was explained yesterday by
S. E. Gill, assistant general agent of
the State Board of Charities, located
in Pittsburgh. There has been some
misapprehension of the matter by
hospital authorities and others.
The Board of Charities hus very
definite rules for the making of hos
pital reports, and these rules are au
thorized by the act t>f Assembly cre
ating the board, which was approved
May 1..1913. In order to secure state
aid the hospitals must comply with
the act and with the rules of the
board. Some of the hospitals have
an erroneous impression that the
patients they support out of their
bequests, endowments and slmilar
funds are free patients, whereas, the
rules of the board regard them as
pay patients. Mr. Gill said:
"If giving credit to hospitals for
that are called free patients the
Board of Charities applies what
maV perhaps be compared to a
'double rule of three.' This method
eliminates as free patients all those
whose maintenance may have been
paid for out of the permanent funds
of the lyjspital such as bequeqts and
endowments. These are free pa
tients in that the hospital may have
given its services without charge to
them but they are pay patients un
der the rules of the board. ,
."The case of the Children's os
pital of Pittsburgh which I notice
complains of not being given the
proper credit is to the point. The
hospital claims a credit of 99 per
cent free patients. The board gives
it credit with only 54 per cent. The
difference consists of those persons
whose treatment was paid for out
of the hospital's endowment. The
same rule is applied to all hospitals
so that there has. been no discrimi
nation and in the apportioning of
the state appropriation to hospitals
this hospital will be favored as
