In a MG,QOCi suit against Bishop John Helmut h and other oih'ecrs of the old order Amish Mennonites here, the 32-year-old Voder said the boycott was employed by order of that church.

State Sales Tax Passed By House (Continued from Page 1) exclamations and charges during two hours of debate, represented a resounding victory for Governor Lane, who had insisted the tax must be approved if the school, road and welfare programs of the state were to be carried, out. With the test vote out of the way, House passage of the controversial bill to raise $18,400,000 a year in new revenue seemed assured. The general understanding was that with House approval of the sales tax. the Senate aUo would reverse its previous stand and pass the revenue bill. Passage of the tax measure would unloose a logjam of administration measures which have been held up until the issue was decided. Significant in the vote on reconsideration, in the House was the break in Republican ranks. Sixteen Republicans voted for reconsideration, as compared to seven who stood by the bill Saturday. Several Democrats also changed their votes. Two Boll Calls Two roll calls were needed before the issue became clear, as diehard opponents of the sales tax raised charges of administration pressure and one delegate declared that the "roll call will show in a few minutes just who sold out." Delegate Dempsey (D.-Balto brought on the first roll call by seeking to have the entire matter postponed until Thursday afternoon. This was defeated after long argument by a 76-43 vote and the matter of reconsideration was then, taken up. The battle over the tax bill had kept the Statehouse in a state of tense expectancy throughout the day. There was nothing said on the a long illness. She was a member of St. Luke's Lutheran Church.

Forrestal replied that the ships would be small vessels to police commerce and sweep mines, mentioning tank landing ships, passenger boats and tugs. Senator Pepper (D-FIa'i inquired whether the Navy is sending warships to the Mediterranean for "demonstrations for political purposes." "I have said for some time." Forrestal answered, "that the American flag is going everywhere—that the sight of it in any part of the world is going to be so common as not to provoke unusual interest. We are going to have naval craft, wherever there is a sea." More High Waters Threaten England London,' March 24 (£>}—Wanrt- lashed waters threatened new damage -to_night to levees guarding the rich F'enland farm area of eastern England, where oods have already caused what one Cabinet minister described as a "disaster of the first magnitude"' bound to affect the British food outlook. Hundreds of troops and civilian workmen were rushed to danger points in the dikes holding back the tidal New Bedford river, where a breach would loose more flood waters on. thousands of -acres already inundated. Minister of Agriculture Tom Williams told the House of Commons that the situation in the Fens "can only be described as a disaster of the first magnitude, which cannot fail to have the most serious effect on home food production this year."

Assembly — nU m- bcred 32 in the House of Delegates, but in'the Senate there was not one. That such a large number of Delegates did not personally introduce a measure was due in part to the fact that in many cases Delegates give their bills to the county delegation leaders to be handed in as delegation bflls. In the other chamber, Senator Barton (D-Balt o 2d) introduced the fewest measures — two. Those who brought in but one measure in the House of Delegates numbered 21. Buffington Calls For Budget Curs Annapolis, Md., March 24 (ff>)— Delegate Buffington (D.-Balto 3rd), declared today the proposed Maryland biennial budget could he cut 520,000,000 without affecting the state's education program and that the suggested saving- would obviate the necessity for a sales tax. He circulated- a statement around the State House just before today's session opened, in which he said "even a casual study of. the budget will show that the Governor has granted in nearly every case, th* amount requested by the department head. "You and I know that the department heads ask for an excessive amount in the hope that they will receive an amount on which they, can operate their departments. "In several cases the Governor has allowed an amount in excess of the amount requested/' Strike Ballots Sent To Maryland Workers Negotiations to be Continued Between Company and Union Baltimore, March 24 (JP) —The Maryland Federation of Telephone Workers (Ind.) issued strike ballots to its 2,100 members today as preparation for its part in a threatened nationwide walkout April 7. Ballots must be mailed to union headquarters not later than March 29, and will be counted.March 31, a union spokesman said. Me said the strike vote was decided on because of a "failure of negotiations to get anywhere" and failure of the Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company to accept an offer to arbitrate. Officials of the Chesapeake and Potomac Co. said negotiations would be continued in a series of meetings this week with the various unions involved in the dispute. They added negotiations had "definitely not been broken off." The Federation is one of five unions seeking to negotiate new contracts with the C. and P. and Western Electric Companies here. One. the Telephone Equipment Workers Union, has scheduled a 24-hour "protest" walkout at Western Electric's Point Breeze plant beginning at 3:30 a. m. tomorrow. Unions involved besides the 5.400 TWEU members at Point Breeze and the MFTW. largely plant and maintenance employes, are the Maryland Federation -of Telephone Clerical Workers with about 000 members: the Maryland Telephone Traffic Union, about 4,000. not an affiliate of the National Federation of. Telephone Workers; and the Communications Equipment Workers, a smaller group of installation workers for Western Electric. Leaders of the Maryland Federation were' in Washington today to attend meetings of the Policy Committee of. the.MFTW, which has set April 7 as a tentative strike deadline. Engineers To Study Conditions At Plant (Continued from Page 1) Potomac Edison' Company was discussed during the closed session. Officials have been advised that this may become necessary because expansion potential is limited at the present site of the city plant. The Potomac Edison is reported willing to enter into a contract with the city for sale of power'at a nominal cost for resale to city customers. The Mayor and Council, members of the Street Hoard and certain city department heads dined at Hotel Alexander earlier in the evening. A preliminary discussion'of the light plant problem was conducted following the dinner, but no formal action was taken there. Talk on the subject ranged from the advisability of buying power from the^ Potomac Edison to the practicability of installing diesel generators to supplement or replace present steam 'generators. Full facts on conditions at the city light plant were placed before the members of the" Street Board by Plant Superintendent Daniels on February 25 of. this year. The facts were contained in a lengthy report. In the report Daniels suggested eight possible plans the city might adopt in increasing facilities at the present plant. Some call for a direct tie-in with,,Potomac Edison. Others call for purchase of. power from' the company, together with installation of more equipment iu the city.plant. Others call for full expansion of the light plant, and installation of much new equipment. Each of the plans were explained by Daniels in his report, and an estimated cost sheet was included. The plans were estimated to cost from as low as $350.000 for one that would include purchase of power from PE to ?961,000 for a plan that would call for complete expansion of the present plant with no PE tie-iu. _~ New Vork. March 24 (7P)—Bikini Lagoon and its 20 islands -may have to remain depopulated for decades until the atom'bomb radioactivity drops to safe limits. This prediction was made today in air affairs by Col. Stafford Warren, Md., who was chief of Medical and Radiological Safety of the Crossroads Operation last summer. Warren also says that if I he rain that fell from the underwater bomb had dropped on a city, that city might have had to remain deserted of inhabitants for years. These are the first authoritative estimates of the long-continued dangerous nature of the radioacti"- ity coming mainly from the underwater bomb. "If," Warren writes, "Bikini had been a vitally important harbor and the down wind area an important city, it would have ha ' to be evacuated after the .underwater tests and only personnel trained in safeguarding themselves from both the external and the internal hazards of radioactive contamination could, have been permitted access to carry on the vital functions of a conflict. ./'For a considera'ble'time (year- only trained personnel will be able to occupy it and the population cannot return until it is certain that all insidious ha::ards have been eliminated. "Few, aware of the extremely complicated problems of decontaminating such a large area, will be hardy enough to guarantee this at an early date (decades)." The Crossroads authorities never have told ust how many square miles were dangerously contaminated by the radioactive rain. But they did announce to Bikiui news correspondents that -36 square miles of lagoon and sea outside were contaminated with radioactivity. That was aot .ail the contaminated area.

S., Committee Told Washington. March 24 (ff>)~ The Hocse Committee on Un-American Activities heard testimony today that, there are enough communists in the United States to form the framework of ten military divisions and that their aim is to soften this country "for ultimate assault the Soviet Government intends to make." The estimate of Communist Party strength and organization came from James F. Green of Omaha, chairman of rhe American Legion's Americanism Commission. Saying, there are at least 100.000 communists in this country, he added: "Here are cadres for ten divisions already on American soil." William C. Bullitt. former Am- lassador to Moscow, made the assessment of aims, coupling it \vith the assertion that if Russia had the atom bomb "it would already have been dropped on the.United States." Bevin And Stalin Confer On Treaty (Continued from Page 1) contend is a "war potential." 2. A four-power coordinating- committee, appointed by the ministers to sort out matters of agreement and'disagreement on the German treaty, held a stormy meeting. Subject? covered thus far indicated that the ministers, during.the first two weeks of their session, were in disagreement on about three- quarters of the matters discussed. 3. Marshall was reported to have recommended that the number of Allied troops in Germany be reduced to a bare essential minimum, so as to cut occupation costs and help Germany get on her feet economically. An authoritative source said Marshall's proposal was contained in none of three American papers circulated among, the other thres ministers. The other papers dealt, with German democratization and the compensation of Allied nationals whose property had been removed- from Germany a? reparations or as war booty.
