after the storm Access Law Would Apply To All Counties By HERB THOMPSON ANNAPOLIS ng firm word from Gov Tawes he Maryland House Judiciary Committee voted today to ex- tend the law on equal public to all 23 counties The committee by a vote overrode the traditional esy of allowing counties to be exempted from a state law It s the third time in the six years of his administration that Gov Tawes has urged the legislature to ignore the privilege of local option His wishes were relayed to the House Judiciary Committee by the Democratic floor leader Del W Dale Hess Without reservation the ernor would like to see the en- jre state under the equal said Hess So there would be no doubt emphasized he was speaking as the governor's floor leader The committee tirst refused to rant a request for the tion of Caroline Talbot set and Wicomico counties It then knocked out exemptions granted Friday in the senate to Four other Eastern Shore aes The next test will come on the louse floor sometime later this afternoon The equal public tions will not be taken up until after the house takes a final vote on congressional redistricting the other main reason for which the legislature convened in ial session Wednesday It was clear the executive would have to use force com- parable to his legislative tri- on Baltimore City court reform and slot machine tion to get the accommodations enacted in the form he wanted But the move to redraw con- gressional district lines in a manner which would meet Su- Court tests appeared to be progressing of its own mentum After the Senate had killed off a controversial plan prepared especially for the cial session the House began action on a more likely to win legislative approval Unlike the drafted by a committee of legislators the House leaves the county lines pretty much intact and does not carve up the large metropolitan areas into as many different districts It also combines the Eastern Shore with Harford near the head of the bay rather than with Southern Maryland side counties As passed by the Senate and taken up by the House Judiciary Committee today the to re- quire equal service for Negroes in restaurants hotels and tels exempted the Eastern Shore counties of Dorchester ter Queen Amies and Kent The exodus which was to be continued in the House by four other Eastern Shore counties not presently covered by a 1963 law was started by Sens erick C Malkus and John L Sanford ter When their counties were let out without any opposition Sen Robert P Dean of Queen Annes arose He said he had hoped the would go through without any exemptions but since two ties we already out he would move to exempt Queen Annes Sen Percy M Hepbron men lowed with his amendment for Kent Tawes forces hoped to force into a joint conference committee of the Senate House before Hie day was over If so these appointees of leaders could dictate ex- what terms an amended would follow Theoretically they could strip off all ments and leave it to the lature to take a statewide or nothing And if the statewide failed one by Sen Harry T Phoebus to add his county to the law was still alive This would cover Princess Anne scene of the most recent racial disturbances on the Eastern Shore At present the head of Chesapeake the only shore county covered by the state public tions law Opponents of tite al redistricting in the Senate easily killed the controversial plan drafted by a committee of 16 legislators It was rejected See EQUAL ACCESS II
