FOURTEEls EVENING TOIES, CUMBERLAND, MO.. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 21.. T<MS Phone 4GOO for a WANT AD- Taker Battle-Scarred B'llls To Pep Up General Assembly Session By IMIITNEV SHOEMAKER Associated Press Staff XVriter ANNAPOLIS—<fl>)—The lesislative •whisk broom is out again, dusting off bills as familiar to Morylant General Assemblies, as the state house dome. Perennials, the' lawmakers cail them. 'these weary veterans, 1 'like the move to abolish'Orphans'-Courts or to grant "home' rule," are as sure as. taxes. And up to now, their tailure has been JLS: as sure. Sevural have.alrcaay been talteii oiit of the' closet. They've started the us-.'al family quDJrel. ' . Itrice within 24 hour.-; last week the Lc-gislative Council reversed itself r.n what is genera]ly referred to as an "Equitable Representation" bill. In effect, the final proposal •would-glve Baltimore and the larger counties more weight in the House of Delegates. •The small counties are violently opposed to-such a maneuver. "llieir spokesmen''.have promised a' drng- i ut fight when ttr full General Assembly meets next month. Heie's a rundown on'this and othor perennials: •Representation— The Legislative Council, vest pocket assembly that studies different proposals between 'sessions,.Has approved-.a contitu- tional amendment to expand the House .from 123 .to 125 members, Each county and Baltimore legislative district would have a-minimum of two delegates. Tho remainder would bo. divided according to population. The council vote was. close. But ; it meant scrapping a previous measure which would have, frozen House membership as it is' now. CA more drastic representation bill died in committee in the 1947 session).. Orphans' Courts—Efforts to do away with these courts always have ieen beaten-down. The council has. approved a • constitutional .amendment to close 'them .up on Jan. .1, 1055. The State;Bar Association says incut I, Ol'llllillin' Oiilil'l.

D«- 1'onders like Lhu informal way they operate, and there's aai equally perennial charge that judgeships make good jobs. • Esclaratlon of Intentions — The council • again will suggest junking the 46-year-old act .which requires newcomers to declare they intend to become Maryland citizens at least a,year before, they may vote. It's one of the rarest laws in the country. Women on Juries—"We are going to intensify our campaign in the counties which do not allow women to serve-on Juries," says Mrs, Dorothy S. Granger of Baltimore. She is legislative 'chairman of the Maryland Women's Council and her statement is typical.of many other •women's groups: The 1947 Genera] Assembly. . flouted precedent and made it legal for women to sit on juries. But 12 counties exempted themselves. . • Home Rule—A spokesman lor the Maryland 'League of Municipalities predicts that association of mayors will back a measure to allow .cities and towns to amend their own char- l.>!i'/i mill fin'liM Mm Clc'iitii'iii Awii'iii- li|,V I'll DIIWJ Ini'Hll llUVSi l'Y«f|ilii||l,ly .cimnUvi IIIIVH iijsliijc! for miioli nf \\h<>. | Inwimiklng power now rusurverl :n jt.hc .stale legislature. Just n-s often | a majority of legislators voted lo jkeep that power, •Frisking"- For- .Concealed •', Weapons—An. amendment to the i Boost Act would allow policemen to frisk suspects and use any gun or the like that they find us-evidence in prosecutions for unlawfully carrying concealed weapons. Opponents say this'opens the way to violations of a man's rights to privacy. Senator Balch (D-Talbot) began a filibuster before the subject was dropped in the 1947 special session, "Jim Crow" Repenier—A perennial of long standing, this would tear down 'the "white only!' signs in public places. IS in' the same form as a bill defeated two years ago! the repealer actually would affect only the Chesapeake Bay ferries. Daylight Saving Time — Several 1047 bills enabled certain cities and counties to adopt "fast time" from April to September. The- fanners want it, many city folk cto. Another attempt to .make the time of day the same throughout Maryland is a safe bet.

But even one of its sponsors, House Speaker .Sybert •(D-Howard), is no: too keen about the bill'.? deference to local zoning authorities. There arc ( other battle-scarred propositions,' too, like I/he appeal of naturopaths to legalize their healing techniques and the timeless campaign to^tax cooperatives. Without them, a veteran senator said last week, "it would be a dreary session," Seek License Transfer' - An ' application to transfer the beer, wine and whisky license of Memorial Post No. 159, American Legion, from Main Street to a new location in Mount Savage, was filed yesterday at the Court House.
