In the middle of May, Stephen's pension status is once again discussed by the school board. Myron L. Foster became the second truant officer in 1916 with funds slotted for the position.
However, once it is determined state law requires a pension for the retiring officer, Stephen, there are no longer funds allocated for two positions.
Truant Officer James Dwyer ends up doing the work of two men and Foster is out. The controversy here is the $33 bill that Foster presented for services rendered before his firing.
Most important…Stephen has his pension. May 14, 1919 Broome Republican
