versity, will travel to Washington to-

choice of the junior high school site II
and that he had "protected" Ray.k
Mrs. Walterhouse admitted that thev
Board-not Haisley-had chosen the
present school location.
Much of the criticism of Haisley
seemed to center on his alleged "mod-
ernistic educational policies" which
supposedly have retarded the pro-
gress in reading of elementary school
children and have neglected the 1
high school student who does not
intend to enter college.
Mills Answers
These accusations were countered
by Glenn Mills, former Ann Arbor
High School teacher and now a mem-
ber of the University faculty, who
said in an interview yesterday that
"the charges of 'modernism' in Hais-
ley's education methods are without
basis. It is even doubtful if the na-
tional Progressive Education Asso-
ciation would recognize our school
system as 'progressive.'
"The actual reasons, judging from
the hesitancy of Board members to
answer pertinent questions, are like-
ly so trivial and personal that they
would be embarrassed to reveal them.
In my five years as a member of the
Ann Arbor High School faculty I
have never heard any word whatso
( ever against Haisley in regard to his
honesty, fairness or efficiency."
Mrs. Flora Ward, another trustee
who voted for the dismissal, explained
her position by saying that she repre-
sented an element of the Ann Arbor
population which opposed Haisley's
educational policies. A well-informed
source commented on this statement
by pointing out that Mrs. Ward re-
ceived only 444 votes in the last Board
election, indicating, he said, that she
was representing "at the very most
only a small minority of the Ann
Arbor citizenry."
Choice Of Teachers
Another critic oi° Haisley questioned
the Superintendent's choice of teach-
ers. A person high in education
circles answered this charge by cit-
ing examples of former staff mem-
bers who have since been called to
fill prominent positions throughout
the country. Among those the in-
