Course materials and the rate of advancement could vary from one local school district to an- other, but "programs should be initiated only when teachers meeting the .qualifications are the committee reported Tuesday. The recommendations call for a three-step program beginning at the kindergarten level. The state board also was ad- vised to "require a report and an analysis of the programs from each local school jurisdic- tion by Jan. 1, 1970." Family living courses would be a compulsory subject dealing with interpersonal relationships, responsible behavior, love and the respect of self and others. Voluntary instruction in sexu- ality would begin at the onset of puberty, between 10 and 12. Boys and girls would be taught separately but receive the same information about reproduction, childbirth and the physical and emotional aspects of maturation. "Students must be excused upon written request from par- ent or the committee said, citing "a clear recognition of the rights of parents in this area. Material taught at the third level would deal with "more advanced physiology and psy- chology of human sexual behav- ior." The course would be elective at the junior or senior high school level and require written consent from the parents. It could be taught separately to boys and girls together. Includ- ed would be "the reproductive process, sex deviations, ceptlon, veneral disease, pre- martlal intercourse and related behavioral and personality mat ters." The report said teacher qualif- ications "should be at least as thorough as that required of a teacher in any other content field of the same scope." It urged similar attention in selection of course material, some of which the committee called "deficient in concept and in quality." "Some material which would be appropriate at a particular grade In a given school or local school system would be suitable only for a different grade in an- other." The formation of suitable pro- grams for each school district was made the responsibility of local educators und citizens. "Family life and sex education cirrlculum should be developed by the most skilled professional educators within the local school system, in consultation with a Citizens Advisory Committee, broadly representing the views of the community. One committee member, Mrs. Genevieve C. Fleury, voted against the report and issued her own dissenting report. The com- mittee chairman, Mrs. David Scull, said approval was other- wise unanimous. (Mrs. Val Hymes, whose column "The State Is published on the News-Post editorial page, is a member of the committee, and said this morning that the recommenda- tion has been made to have a legislator serve on the local committee. The committee also urges the program be called "family life and human rather than "sex education" which is but a part of the overall offer- ing.)

An application to construct a dog kennel in the county was the highlight for its uniqueness. Scoring a first for dog kennel applications, there was no op- position to the plan. These are usually highly debated Issues. The application from Al- fred W. and Jane M. Knowles, want to build a 16-unlt, 25 dog capacity kennel on their pro- perty at Md. 75 at Price Dis- tillery Road. The site meets the require- ments specified in the zoning or- dinance. Among other measure- ments, the kennel and runs will be 279 feet from the main 450 feet from Md. 75 and 420 feet from'Bennett Creek. Fencing six feet high will be around the facility, and Knowles said he is trying to make the best use of the land he owns. He added that there is a "tre- mendous market" for the type of kennel he proposes. It will not be a commercial operation as he explained, will give personal care to the dogs kept there. There will probably be an aver- age o( 15 to 20 UUKH at Uie Ken- nel at any one time, he estimat- ed. The noise factor will be dim- Pi PC Log Fire calls reported during the 24-hour period enflnc at 10 a.m. inished, since the kennel is pro- posed in sort of a hollow between hills with trees nearby. The Planning Commission, re- presented by Lawrence jonnson, associate planner, recommend- ed approval of the application. Lester A. Stottlemyer, repre- sented by Jcsso Lewis, Lewis Brothers Construction Co.. and asked for a variance of 22 feet from the required 70 feet in or- der to build a porch on his house on Brandenburg Hollow Road. The house was designed to have a'porch and Lewis explained that it now has just concrete blocks leading from the door. Mrs. Stottlemyer's brother re- quires a wheelchair, and Lewis said that both the Stottlemyers' are elderly people. Johnson said that the house, under the zoning laws, wouldn't need a variance If built today. Among the requirements is that the porch cannot be converted Into a room. The Planning Commission rec- ommended approval of the appli- cation. .jj'j _ Neither the planning group nor the County Roads Board would recommend approval, however, of an application for a variance requested for construction of a carport on the Charles E. Beach property on Ltnthlcum Road. The application asks for a var- iance of 48 feet from the re- CG fuul from u.o cor.lcr of the road, one-fifth of a mile (Continued on Page S) Rev. A. D.

(AP) The former Green Beret commander in Vietnam said today he didn't know the alleged Vietnamese double agent he and seven of his men were accused of killing end denied there had been such a slaying. "That is Col. Robert B. Rheault declared when asked at a news conference If he de- nied there had been a killing. he said when asked if he had known the person a newsman described as the "al- leged dead man." Rheault, 43, also was asked if he thought "the Vietnamese killed was a close political ally of President Thieu" and "do you think this might have re- sulted in the case being brought against "There was no conclusive evi- dence that the individual was ever killed and there is certain- ly no indication anywhere that the alleged victim Was connect- ed with President Thieu in any the colonel said.

"The Americans killed him and wont take the responsibility. They must either take the responsibility for his death or my death." Earlier, Pham Kim Lien, 29, met with the two officers inside. She carried a 14-month-old baby In her arms. She presented the officers with a petition written in Viet- namese and addressed to the U.S. ambassador. "I Want freedom and justice. And if I will not have it, I will go back to the North (North Vietnam) and live she said. "What I ask for is compensa- tion to support myself and other Green Berets involved in the case returned to the United States from Vietnam to this Cal- ifornia base near San Francisco the day after the Army dropped murder charges against them. They headed for their homes shortly after the plane set down and an Army spokesman said ail would get 30-day leaves. The colonel said he believed the incident "would better be forgotten so long as people remember that we were exoner- ated." He acted as spokesmen for the others during a minute session with newsmen here after a flight from Vietnam aboard a chartered jetliner that brought 219 persons here. Rheault said he, the five other officers and two enlisted men did not know Thai Khac Chuyen, their alleged victim. He insisted there was no evidence that the man had been killed. Rheault said he could not un- uerstand Wiy the murder and conspiracy charges were filed against them. Army Secretary Stanley R. Resor announced Monday the charges against all eight had been dropped after the Central Intelligence Agency, for securi- ty reasons, declined to let its agents testify. He said the CIA action precluded a fair trial. With Rlieault, of Vineyard Ha- ven, Mass., were Capt. Robert F. Marasco, 27, Bloomfleld, N.J.; Maj. Thomas C. Mlddleton Jr., 29, Jefferson, S.C.; Maj.

Smith was aboard a separate night to the United States, after his departure from Vietnam was delayed in processing. Rheault refused to elaborate on his brief statement concern- ing Thai Khac Chuyen, who the Army charges said was slain June 20 near the Special Forces headquarters at Nha Trang. As the men stepped from the plane they were greeted by at- torney Henry Rothblatt of New York, who represented Crew, Brumley and Boyle.

George charged today Conn. CAP) S. McGovern that instead of fulfilling his pledge to end the Vietnam war, President Nixon "has apparently decided to pur- chase public patience by succes- sive, carefully timed, token withdrawals of our troops." In a speech prepared for the annual meeting of the Associat- ed Press Managing Editors, the South Dakota Democrat said "There is every indication the administration Is more sensitive to the wishes of Gen. Thleu (South Vietnamese president) than to the cry of our own citi- zens that the war be ended now. "There maneuvers will not work.

McGovern, a persistent critic of U.S. Involvement in Vietnam and a possible contender for the 1972 Democratic presidential nomination, also charged Presi- dent Nixon with "a policy of re- treat from responsibility." The administration, he said fails "to understand the scope or seriousness of either our domestic or foreign problems. "The forces for change are as strong today as they have ever been, and those who would deny their existence are the real threat to our national security." He pointed to such domestic as overcrowded schools, clogged highways, rising farm costs, pollution and high taxes, and said: "I can only assume that those to whom the leader- ship has passed, and some who aspire to leadership, feel that the time is not right for solu- tions to these problems." issue is "whether we have the will to call the nation to set Its own house in Mcgovern said.

WM off 2.11 Frederick County public school in the amount of 00 were sold today in Baltimore. The County Commissioners received and accepted a bid for he purchase of the bonds from a Baltimore group headed by Alex Brown and Sons, Effective nterest rate was 5.990-JG1 per cent. The proceeds of the sale of the bonds will be used for the construction, additions to and renovations of public school buildings in Frederick County, according to the commissioners. Sale of the bonds will meet with mixed emotions In Frederick County. Proponents of the sale feared :hal failure to receive a bid be- low the six per cent legislated ceiling would have for initiating already planned school construction projects this year. Opponents, the Frederick bounty and City Taxpayers League, had asked the commis- sioners not to sell the bonds, contending the expenditure was Tor construction not needed by the county. Failure to sell the bonds would have called a halt to such planned projects as: the addition to Llnga- norc High School, the Rock Creek Center for retarded children, both of which are to receive 50 per cent state matching funds; Uie new Green Valley Elemcn- quoted at tary School, Myersville School and an addition to East Fred- erick Elementary, all of which are to receive 32 per cunt state aid. Municipal bonds have not been selling for under the six percent ceiling on the market, and offi- cials circles had expressed doubts that Frederick County would be able to sell the million issue for under six per cent. However, County Commis- sioner President Charles E. Collins stated late last month that he intended to go through with the bidding on the belief that enough municipalities have with- drawn their bond issues from the market, because of the high in- terest rates that have been bid, that "we might just find a buy- er." Million Slashed From Model Cities Plan WASHINGTON (AP) The Nixon administration has slashed million from the Model Cities program- a 42 per cent cut in funds for rehabilitat- ing some of the nation's worst urban slums, The White House will; allow only million instead of the million that had been tick- eted in April to move at least 60 Model Cities projects from the planning stage to program grants during the current fiscal year ending next June 30. Although Congress set up the program in 1966, this is the first year for implementing the plans to attack all the causes of pov- erty within a slum are through one integrated program. The Model Cities cutback, springing from the President's order of billion in govern- ment-wide budget reductions to fight Inflation, Was disclosed by Nathaniel J. Eiseman, director of the Budget Office at the De- partment of Housing and Urban Development. There are a total of 150 com- munities in 45 states, the Dis- trict of Columbia and Puerto Rico participating In the pro- gram. Two HUD programs that pro- vide interest subsidies to low-In- come homeowners and to build- ers of low-rent apartments are the next biggest losers after Model Cities. Their combined outlays will cut from million to million. An additional million will be pared from grants for water, sewer and other neighborhood facilities, budgeted originally at million. However, increases in other HUD urban renewal assistance will partially offset the reduc- tions for Model Cities and the Sound Barrier Cracked By French Plane TOULOUSE, France CAP) The French-British supersonic transport plane Concorde Mlb other programs leaving the de- partment's net share of the billion in cutbacks at mil- ion, Eiseman said. Top HUD officials say the Model Cities cuts were made necessary by a late and slow start for the program. They" don't signal a Republican-engi- neered death for Model Cities, the officials contend. Model Cities was the keystone of former President Lyndon B. Johnson's urban policies. The idea was to funnel all the renew- al that federal-local money could buy Into target slum neighborhoods. x- President Nixon also pared million from Johnson's re- quest for million in new ap- propriations for Model Cities. The House has voted mil- lion, while the Senate has yet to act on the request.
