The suit of Miss Beatrix Graves against the Jefferson school township of Miami county, for damages in the sum of $3,500, which was filed in the Miami circuit court some time ago, has been brought to Howard county on a change of venue, says a Kokomo paper.
According to her complaint, Miss Graves was a duly licensed teacher, holding a state teacher's certificate signed by Horace Ellis, state superintendent or public instruction, when she signed a contract to teach the Miami school for the term of 1917-18. Soon after she began teaching the township trustee canceled the contract and refused to pay her for the services she had performed the trustee comenuing that she did not possess a license to teach in the schools of the state. This act on the part of the township trustee, says the complaint, constituted breach of contract by which the plaintiff was deprived of the salary for the term of school to the amount of $500, and has suffered damages as a result of humiliation in the sum of $3,000.
