Has No Time Left For Loafing Page 6 VOL. 101 FREDERICK, MD., WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 1964 (ICTIONS 20 PAGES SECTION SINGLE COPY WEEKLY CARRIM Grange Speaks On School Favors Close Scrutiny Given Plans For Proposed TJ High School The Pomona Grange of Fred- erick County has gone on record as favoring the close scrutiny being given present plans for the Governor Thomas Johnson High School. The farm organization is in favor of a new school for Fred- erick but has officially i- mended three members of the Board of Education, Presid t Clarence C. C. Thomas, Vice C. Gordon Smith, and Hallar Best, for their "stimulat- ing close scrutiny" of the plans for the multi-million dollar school. A special meeting of the Board of Education was being held this afternoon in an effort to approve plans for the school so that the project can be adverti-sd for bids. Mr. Thomas said be- fore the rreeting he didn't think there was a "chance in the world" of the plans being ap- proved today. Seeing Board Members A number of committee mem- bers of the grange met last ek with the three members of the board who have been demanding changes in the plans. Another meeting is scheduled by the grange this Thursday evening at the Production Credit Office, East street. This time the other members of the Board of Edu- cation and administrative of- ficials have been invited to at- tend. Bernard Remsburg, master of Pomona Grange, and Austin P. Renn and Harry E. Swomley, appeared at the meeting of the Board of Education last week to invite the board members to at- tend the study session. Want 30-Day Delay Mr. Renn told the educators that several members of the grange have been studying af- fairs -of- the county and want- ed to hear both sides of the school building problem. As chairman of the economy and efficiency committee of the grange, Mr. Renn asked that ap- proval of the plans be delayed for 30 days so that his group could study both sides of the problem. Charles King is chair- man of the grange executive committee which is studying the plans along with Mr. Renn's group. Mr. Thomas informed the grange representatives that the school is needed badly and that it is important to get the building under as rapidly as possible. Board Disturbed Ross V. Smith, former presi- dent of the Board of Education, said he was "disturbed" because part of the board was invited to attend one meeting and the oth- ers were asked to attend another session. "To invite part and not the whole board doesn't make sense to Mr. Smith stated. Mr, Renn said the grange members felt they could get a better understanding of the problems if they heard one side at a time. He emphasized that the group is not interested in "upsetting" anybody's plans. "We want to be he concluded. Against Procedure Mrs. Mary Condon Hodgson said she met only once with the special School Board committee studying the school plans. She said she resigned the committee only because the way the other members, C. Gordon Smith and Mr. Best, went about their study- ing the plans. She said "I'm for economy as Local Churches Begin Lent; Morning, Evening Services The beginning of the 40-day Lenten season was marked this Ash Wednesday in Frederick by several hundred churchgoers at- tending early morning Lenten services at two of this city's churches. St. John's Catholic Church and the All Saints Episcopal church began the 40-day period of fast- ing and penitence with morning services while other 'Christian denominations will start their Lenten observance with servic- es this evening. During this Lenten period, contrition and self-denial will be stressed in prayers and ser- mons in Frederick churches, with many of these churches conducting Lenten services ev- ery Wednesday evening through- out this period. At this morning's service at the Episcopal church, ashes were bestowed upon the members of the congregation by marking of the members' foreheads. The Ca- tholic Church also bestows Cash- es. These ashes used by the two local churches are the remains of burned palms which were used during the Palm Sunday ceremonies. The ashes are blessed in the Catholic and Episcopal churches following an early morning mass. Many communities in Freder- ick County, such as Walkers- ville and Lewistown, will hold community Lenten services each Wednesday or Sunday evening with members of the area min- isterium participating in each service. The word Lent, originally meant spring, and gradually came to mean the period of fasting in preparation for Eas- ter. The custom of marking the forehead with ashes, done by the Catholic and Episcopal churches of the city, was first done in the early Church in Rome to begin public penance. World Day Of Prayer Friday Children To Participate In Ecumenical Services The local observance of the of Rev. Robert 0. Holley Jr, World Day of Prayer to be held this Friday by the Frederick Council of United Church Wo- men, will feature a new service never before held in this area Friday at 4 p.m. an all Chil- drens' Service will be held in the sanctuary of the Calvary Methodist Church for children in grades one through junior high school. This service, with the same theme for the entire World Day of Prayer services, "Let Us is under the direction Below Zero Temperatures Reported Temperatures tumbled below zero in parts of Frederick county last night but drifting of the sev- en-inch layer of snow failed to occur as feared. The lowest temperature in the county was reported as -4 de- grees. That numbing reading was recorded at Unionville. Residents in other parts of the county had plenty of reason for shivering. Temperatures were generally below the teens. Of- ficially the low mark here early this morning was 11 degrees. Other unofficial readings show- ed the temperature to be several degrees colder. Roads crews were pleased that the drifting of the snow did not occur as predicted. A spokesman for the county roads department said this morning that every- thing is now under control. Some slippery spots remain on roads throughout the area but overall the roads are in good condition. More precipitation is moving in this direction but the weather bureau said it should arrive here as rain Thursday. Temperatures this afternoon are expected to climb into the 40; following a maximum Tuesday of just 29 degrees. educational director at Calvary Methodist Church. Rev.

Proposed Subdivision Regulations Land Divisions Are Defined By Planning And Zoning AMBULANCE CALL The United ambulance wes called out around a.m. to- day on a routine transport. The patient was taken from Carver Apartments to Frederick Me- morial Hospital (Editor's Note: This Is the second of a series of articles telling of the proposed subdivision regulations for Freder i c k County Today's story tells of require- ments for minor and maior subdivi- sions. The information for the series is from the Frederick County Planning and Zoning Commission What is a subdivision? In the regulations proposed by the Frederick County Planning and Zoning Commission a subdivi- sion is defined as "The division of any tract or parcel of land into two or more parcels for the purpose, whether immediate or future, of transfer of owner- ship or of building development, or any division of a parcel of land if a new street is required." It should be noted however, that subdivision regulations are not intended to include a testa- mentary division of land among the members of a family for personal use, and not for devel- opment, or a division of land for agricultural purposes and not requiring a new street. If a property owner chooses to sell a single lot off his land along a public road, can he do so without any concern for the subdivision regulation? The ans- wer to this question is "yes" _ rules. according to the A minor. subdivision Is any subdivision containing not more than four fronting on I an ousting public maintained or road, not requiring anew street or road to be built or the extension of municipal facilities. The development must not ad- versely affect the development of the remainder of the proper- ty or adjoining property and cannot conflict with any portion of the-County Comprehensive Plans or the Zoning Ordinance. The requirements for a minor subdivision consist of sketching the lots on a sheet of tracing paper. The paper and the base map from which the sketch is to be traced will be furnished by the Planning Commission. -The staff of the Planning and Zoning Commission will assist the property owner in preparing the sketch. No other plotting or engineering information is re- quired. A major subdivision is one in which no new street or exten- sion of municipal facilities are required in development of five or more lots, or one in which a new street or extension of mu- nicipal facilities is needed for two or more lots. Lots of record prior to the date of adoption of the regula- tions shall not be counted in arriving at the maximum num- ber of lots allowed before a de- veloper becomes a major sub- divider.

Tawes To Make Appeal For Tax Increase On TV USHERS IN LENTEN SEA- Paul VI kneels to have his forehead dabbed with ashes as he ushers in the Lent- en season with an Ash Wednes- day ceremony in his private chapel in the Apostolic Palace at Vatican City. Luigi Cardinal AP WirephotO Traglia, left, papal Pro-Vicar of the City of Rome, places the ashes on the Pope's forehead. Pope Comments Dr. Hutton Reports From Canal Zone Friends in Frederick received some first hand news of the 'ruckus" in the Canal Zone 'rom Dr. Robert S. Hutton, now stationed there. In a letter to William Trout, secretary of he Lions Club of Frederick, of which he became a member while at Fort Detrick, he sent a check for his dues and said le keeps up with the club hrough "The Lions he club publication. He wrote in part: "I had bought I would get around and see some of you when I was in 7rederick the first of the month but the day after I ar- rived the ruckus broke out here. was concerned about my fam- ly and got back here as quickly as possible. They were in no mmediate danger but did have a ringside seat to the whole show as our house is located on hillside overlooking the area where the disturbance was. Things are quiet say too quiet. We will see. U S. News and World Report carried n excellent account of what hap- >ened and made some very sound observations. Perhaps you lave seen it. Some of the daily )apers and (a certain) magazine were, for my money, way off Jase, Most assuredly there was no invasion of Panama by U.S. roops or police. "We are enjoying very nice weather here now. This is the season of the year. My laughter complains of being cold how and then but I'm sure he temperature has not been jelow 70 day or night. At this season we have much wind. Our ffices are open and I have a dickens of a time keeping things in my We have the house ir conditioned so that it no problem there." Says Modern Life Faced With Doubt VATICAN CITY VI told preachers and parish priests of Roman Catho- ic church today that modern ife has become characterized >y doubt, public scandal and spiritual confusion. The Pope, who spoke to the -enten preachers in the Sistine lhapel on the occasion of Ash Wednesday, said; Ideals are in crisis; philoso- phy has been replaced by calcu- ations o f immediate utility. Tears that things are worsen- ing, as if this were- inevitable, overcome the spirit, while spir- tual and moral gains no longer are in fashion. "The word of the spirit seems to have been left in the scab- bard of doubt and spiritual con- fusion. Exactly for this reason, the message of the religious truth must be made to resound with the greatest strength." The Pope added: "Public morality (is) every day doubly offended by miser- able scandals of bad customs and by publicity which spread them (the scandals) and makes pastures of those openly immor- al spectacles which dishonor art, corrupt people, ignore the secret character of life and, what is worse, offend the law of God." The Pope urged the preach- ers "to stimulate the spirits to better thoughts and a thing which he said was in the present day "an urgent and grave task." Johnson Welcomes Home With Brotherly Love WASHINGTON (AP) east Asia; and negotiations with ident Johnson welcomed Brit- ain's prime minister to Wash- ington today with a remark that the United States and Brit- ain are much like two brothers who squabble occasionally "but whose ties are too strong ever to break." Johnson, addressing Sir Alec- Douglas Home in a formal ceremony at the north portico of the White House, said, "May God bless our work together." Looking ahead to two days of talks on a multitude of world trouble spots, Johnson said he sand the prime minister will meet in friendship "with a high resolve to face our common problems and to try to solve them for the common good." Douglas Home said much of their talk undoubtedly will focus on ways and means to promote world order and stabil- ity. The American and British chiefs normally confer a couple of times a year in the continu- ing close U.S.-British associa- tion. Probable topics for the meet- ings between the two leaders included trade with the Com- munists, generally, and with Cuba, in particular; the state of the Western Alliance; South- Ball Arrives In Troubled Cyprus NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) Un- dersecretary of State George Ball and British envoy Cyril Pickard called on President Ma- karios today to present the lat- est U.S.-British plan to land an international peace keeping force on Cyprus. Ball hurried to the meeting shortly after he arrived from Turkey on his flying peace mis- sion. The conference took place as fighting between Greek and Turkish communities flared anew in the south coastal city of Limassol, 38 miles southwest of Nicosia. At least one Greek Cypriot policeman was killed, a palace spokesman said. A spokesman .for the Greek Cypriot president said the talks will decide whether Makarios will take the case to the United Nations. If they are considered unsatisfactory, a special Greek Cypriot delegation probably will be sent to U.N. headquarters in One Car Of Derails Tuesday It has been reported that one car of a Railroad coal train derailed around 5 p.m. Tuesday at West Plain, near Bartholows. The source said that the car, which was loaded with coal, was part of a 100-car eastbound train going to Baltimore.

In Toronto, Douglas Home made plain Tuesday night that Britain will refuse to cancel its sale of buses to Cuba or join the U.S economic boycott of Cuba aimed at toppling Prime Minister Fidel Castro's regime. In an address at the 60th an- niversary dinner of the Empire Club of Canada, Douglas-Home called on the Soviet Union to join with the West in expanding trade with underdeveloped na- tions to relieve their poverty. Court Order Halts Space Picketing CAPE KENNEDY, Fla (AP) federal court order, issued just before midnight Tuesday, has halted union picketing which had stopped worth of construction on Cape Kennedy and the adjacent Mer- ritt Island moonport. U.S. Dist. Judge George C. Young issued a temporary re- straining order requested by the National Labor Relations Board. The ruling directed the Order of Railroad Telegraphers, AFL-CIO to withdraw picket lines. Picket lines vanished by 6 a.m. today and construc- tion workers who had honored them for two days returned to their jobs. Judge Young declared the re- straining order effective until 5 p.m. Thursday. He set anoth- er hearing for NLRB and union attorneys for 2 p.m. that day, at which time he indicated he could extend the order. Ill Montgomery County Council Rejects Zoning Proposed For Rural Areas relatively high density areas of in the lower sections of the county. The proposed zoning would have also regulated the types of structures and building uses in rural areas. The County Council, in reject- ing the proposed zoning, refer- red to the new master plan for Montgomery County now up for adoption which will maintain many of the rural areas and only designate some for urban development. The citizens groups represent several hundred residents of that county from various organiza- tions including the Montgomery A five acre zoning classifi- cation proposed by citizens groups to conserve open space and curb pressures for high density developments in rural areas, suffered a second defeat Tuesday in Montgomery County. The rural zoning proposal, which was turned down by the Montgomery County Council, promotes the economic use and conservation of the land for agri- culture, natural resource devel- opment, residential estates, non- intensive recreational use and other similar purposes. The zoning proposal would have applied mainly to the rural areas of Upper Montgomery County, according to Byron Sedgwick, information officer of the county. It would have dis-1 Montgomery County League of sessions now held in alternate Aides Arranging For Time Unique Move For Governor; Pressman To Seek Equal Time ANNAPOLIS (AP) Gov. Tawes is preparing a unique tel- evision appearance to present his case for an increased Mary- land state income tax, it was learned today. Aides are working on arrange- ments for the statewide tele- case, which would mark the governor's first direct appeal of this kind on any measure since he took office six years ago. Word of the governor's plans brought a strong protest from Hyman A. Pressman, Baltimore comptroller. He said he would demand equal time. Pressman had challenged the governor to a television debate on the tax proposal, and the comptroller said today Tawes had failed to reply to a televi- sion station's offer to present the debate. Preman said that because of this, and the fact that the proposed tax is "not completely he will "invoke the FCC ruling and demand equal time on any radio or TV station which carries the gover- nor's talk." In another unprecedented move, administration money ex- perts will address a joint meet- ing of the State Senate and House of Delegates to explain details of the Tawes plan to raise the income tax from 3- per cent to 4 per cent. An informed source said two of these officials Budget Di- rector James G. Rennie Jr. and Legislative Fiscal Research Di- rector John S. Shriger also probably will accompany the Governor on the television pro- gram. Plans for the telecast and the special legislative briefing re- flect concern of the Democratic administration about opposition to the tax proposal. The governor, in his "state of the state" message at the out- set of the current 30-day session of the legislature, said the jacked-up tax rate is necessary to finance new aid to education and other growing state expen- ditures. Among most outspoken op- ponents of the move has been State Comptroller Louis L. Goldstein, whom Tawes is back- ing for Democratic nomination to the U.S. Senate. Goldstein, virtually the entire Republican minority in the Leg- islature, and even some Demo- cratic legislators contend the 1 per cent rate increase would be excessive. The governor has threatened to veto any measure calling for a smaller raise. He acknowledges that the 1 per cent boost would raise about million in its first full year of collection and that his teacher pay raise bill will cost only about million at the start. But only about 810.2 million from the higher tax could be chipped in for the education program in its early stages be- cause of different starting dates 'or the school year and the Jan. 1 effective date of the tax. The rest of the money for this year would come from surplus funds. Details of the Tawes telecast were still being worked out to- day, but one Baltimore TV sta- tion was understood to have of- fered the governor a choice of two evening time slots Thurs- day or Friday. One legislative leader indicat- ed the joint Senate-House brief- ing would be held within a few days of the telecast. In other legislative develop- ments: Thomas Hunter Lowe, D-Talbot, prepared for introduc- tion today a bill to extend for 'our 1966 to :he present apportionment of seats in the House of Delegates.
