Request to Abolish and Transfer Assistant Disciplinarian and Teacher Positions

Request to Abolish and Transfer Assistant Disciplinarian and Teacher Positions
Date: 
November 30, 1908 - December 10, 1908

Carlisle Indian School Superintendent Moses Friedman requests to abolish an assistant disciplinarian and a teacher position because both of these positions are no longer necessary after the new rule that students must be at least fourteen years old. Assistant Disciplinarian Louis Felix is in the small boys quarters and Teacher Ella Petoskey is a first and second grade teacher, but their jobs are no longer needed because there are fewer young students, so Friedman recommends that they be transferred to another school. 

Acting Commissioner of Indian Affairs R. G. Valentine informs Friedman that he will abolish the positions once transfers for both of them are confirmed. The Assistant Secretary of the Interior informs the Commissioner of Indian Affairs that Felix's position has been abolished.
