The charter, recently completed, would give home rule and a city manager to Cumberland. A member of the delegation, Horace P. Whitworth, Jr., has indicated Unit he is also considering a bill to require . the University of Maryland to give a complete accounting of funds obtained through federal allotments. The delegation's concern over the Miners Hospital appropriation arose' last Wednesday after Michael J. Byrnes, 'secretary of the hospital's board of directors, declared tl»at unless Immediate action Is taken the $235.000 appropriation for a new wing to the buildlnj is not likely to be included in-the Governor's budget for 1949. ' . ' Whitworih explained that the delegation was unaware of a hitch existing in the proposed addition for the hospital until Byrnes'issued Ills warning, but declared the delegation will exert every effort to get necessary money for the hospital. Cumberland's proposed charter will likely be explained to the delegation next Monday, night at the same time the Charter Commission is scheduled to meet with Senator Robert B. Klmble, Allegany Republican. ' Whitworth said the delegates have been invited to attend, arKl will probably do so. The charter,, completed this month after almost a year's work, has not been detailed for the slate representatives who' will be asked to introduce it for passage by the General Assembly, • The six county -delegates will leave here in time "to attend 'a caucus of Republican . lawmakers Wednesday to select a minority floor leader. A dinner will be held before the opening sessions. .-• A caucus of the county delegates is set for Thursday morning before the General Assembly convenes. to hear Governor Lane's message. > Whitworth said his plan for a bill to require a systematic account- Ing by the University of Maryland on federal allotments is a statewide issue that will likely meet .some opposition. He added, however, thnt he counts on "Baltimore YES, YOU CAN BE SUED FOR NEGLIGENCE! The law says you are responsible for neglect or carelessness that results In the injury or death of anyone visiting your residence or on land owned or you, including sidewalks. You are also responsible for'the acts of your children, servants and pets. • But why worry about damage suits when you can pass along this responsibility?

If a bill to abolish Orphans Courts Is brought up tit the session, Whitworth said he believes the entire 'delegation Irom Allegany will oppose and make an effort to have this county excluded from the le^al bindings." In further reference to the Miners Hospital allotment. Whitworth declared- that if the delegation fails -to have the proposed money included in the general budget, .it will attempt to have a separate bill introduced to'make the whig addition possible.
