Elbert N. Carvel apparently is about to take part in the selection. Carvel said yesterday he will meet with the State Board of Education Monday "probably" to discuss the selection of a man to succeed Dr. George R. Miller. Miller will retire Dec. 31. "We will probably discuss we matter of a new superintendent," Carvel said. "I think that is a proper concern of the governor and that it is a matter of which the eovernnr should be informed." BOARD MEMBERS tioned yesterday confirmed that the field, whirh rinca numbered more than 50 candidates, had been reduced to three. But they would not identify the persons still being considered.

FRANK A former All-American football player sits on the sidelines when his team practices and plays and he eats his heart out. "Boy, how Id like to get down there with those kids," Caleb (Tex) Van Warrington, superintendent of the Ferris School for boys, confessed yesterday. But he can't. He's now the top officer of the school. That means a lot of paperwork, office routine and administration, plus studying because he's going to Temple University twice a week for his master's degree in school administration. WARRINGTON, who used to be a big name in American collegiate football, was recently named superintendent of Ferris. One of the first things he did was to reactivate football and a regular playing schedule as part of the athletic program at the school for delinquent boys. "I've got about 50 per cent of the school involved in football now." he said, "and I hope to bring in another 25 per cent." Last week, the Ferris boys played the Brown Technical High School jayvees and were defeated, 6-0. But Warrington has hopes the Ferris team will bring in a few victories later on. While Warrington doesn't have time to direct the team he has great confidence in its two coaches: Arthur Whit-taker and Robert Shorttell. It's been about 15 years since football was a regular thing at Ferris, and when Warrington brought it back, there was the problem of uniforms. The state doesn't provide money for such purposes. So Warrington touched some friends, and a motely assortment of old uniforms materialized. HOWEVER, SINCE boys take some pride in having their own uniforms, the Youth Services Commission has permitted the use of interest from a private source the Bellah Trust Fund for uniforms and equipment. This fund was established for Ferris a long time ago. The new uniform colors will be royal blue and white, trimmed in gold. The Ferris team has eight playing dates, and seven have been filled. Warrington is looking around for the eighth date. Games remaining on the schedule: Gunning Bedford, Salesianum Jayvees, Dover High, Claymont, St. Andrew's and Harrington High. "The Dover High game is one that I'll be sure not to miss," Warrington said yesterday. "Back in 1934, 1 was on the Dover team, and I remember when we played Ferris. They scared the living daylights out of me they were that tough and good." WARRINGTON was chosen an All-American player in 1944 in the Associated Press poll and, in addition, was selected for All-America honors by Red Grange on the Newspaper Enterprise Association eleven, by the International News Service, the New York News and by Grantland Rice for Collier's masazine. And then on top of all this, he was chosen on the Sporting News' All-South team. That was when Warrina- ton played center for Alabama Polytechnic Institute at Auburn, Ala., and had sparked his team from a mediocre eleven into tough opponents for some of the best teams in the South. only a nominal time at uncon tested elections. -HB 322. adding $600 to the DouktS SafetV Townsend School nnnrnnri it in n to pay the salary of a nurse omitted from the budget.

Wildlife Unit Asks Delay in Spraying From the Dover Bureau Mn D0V'E The Delaware Wildlife Federation is not convinced that roadside spraying will be harmless and has asked Gov. Elbert N. Carvel to delay its use. tJ?u tele8ram ,0 the governor yesterday, Edmund H. (Ted) Harvey, president of the federation, said: The Delaware Wildlife Federation earnestly requests the governor to bring about a postponement of the highway spraying program until a truly constructive demonstration of the selective use of herbicides can be designed , r, .f5d(Tat'on 0(Ters provide expert consultation by qualified plant ecologists to assist the highway depart-ment and other state agencies and private firms with vegetation management problems. "Continuation of the pro-ram will preclude scientific before and after evaluation." Carvel was not in his office yesterday afternoon when the telegram was received, but it is expected to be presented to him today. At a meeting Wednesday, officials of the University of Delaware School of Agriculture said they have been convinced that the equipment used for roadside spravin is adequate to prevent the spray from damaging either vegetation or animal life off the pavement edge BOTH ZUTZ and Dr. Hiram Lasher, member from Mill boro, said they believe categorically that the ultimate responsibility for the hiring of a superintendent rests with the state board. "It is our duty," Zutz said, "because I believe we have the best understanding of the qualifications desired, best under. stand the problems he will face, and the best knowled of the individual applicants." He said private industry could not do the screening job that the state board has done "because it would be too costly. We interviewed every applicant ai great length." Lasher said there is no question in his opinion that final responsibility rests with the state board. But it could be that the meeting with the governor indicates that the state's chief executive h;is diffcent ideas on the matter. Board members, however, would not say that Carvel wants to change or influence their choice. Arden Boy, 3, Hurt When Hit by Auto Barton Yoder, 3, Arden, suffered injuries when, oolira said, he was struck by a car in front of 721 E. 7th St. yesterday about 4:30 p.m. He was taken to Wilmington General Hospital and treated for bruises of the body. According to police, the child ran into the path of a car driven by George H. Stewart. 49, 200 block Du Pont St Police said Stewart was driving west on Seventh Street when the acci dent occurred.
