Would Abandon Trolley Service Between Myersville And Funkstown To Aid New Road Plan Asks Public Service Commission For Right To Institute Motor Passenger And Freight Service Lower Freight Rates On Grain Being Sought The Potomac Edison Company filed Friday with the Maryland Public Service Commission an ap- | plication to discontinue electric railway service on the HagersUwn and Frederick Railway between Myersville and Funkstown. and between Boonsboro Junction and Boonsboro. Applications were also filed by the Potomac Edison Company and its subsidiary, the Blue Ridge Transportation Company, for permission to institute bus passenger service, and truck freight service between Myersville, Boonsboro. Mapleville and Hagerstown. The Public Service Commission ordered a hearing on the petitions at its offices in Baltimore on September 15 at 10 o'clock m the morn-! ing R Paul Smith. Hagerstown. president of the Potomac Edison Company, stated that the applications filed with the Commission were another step in conforming with the agreement recently reached with the Maryland State Roads Commission regarding transfer to the | State of the franchises under ^ j the electric road operates. Tne utilit\ s agreement with the F. rights of way. The operation of bus and truck service to handle passengers and freight is in accordance with ihe company's policy of providing service when warranted by public patronage, Mr Smith said. The railway company hauls considerable express and light freight between Myersville and Hagerstown now. Heavy freight such as coal and oil isn't moved beyond Myersvitlc because of South Mountain and several sharp curves. The railway line follows the low graded valleys from Myersville to Hagerstown and since the highway is on a direct line from this city to Hagerstown, it intersects the trolley tracks six times. Plans for the dual highway call for elimination of all grade crossings. One side of the highway has been completed except for surfacing from Hagerstown to within a few miles of Frederick. Washington, Sept 2 --Attempting to stimulate grain exports, the i Agriculture Department today | sought a reduction in freight rates on wheat moving from Central and , Western producing areas to seaboard shipping points It asked the presidents of Eastern and Southern railroads to accept a reduction to help dispose of 100.000,000 bushels of surplus American wheat in foreign markets. In a letter to the presidents. M. L. Wilson. Acting Secretary of Agriculture, asked that rates be cut m accordance with a suggestion recently made by several Eastern railroad executives The suggestion later was rejected by the Association of American Railroads.

Munsho-A-er. superintendent stated at his home here Friday night The chief executive will be preceded by two escorts. Eight patrolmen will escort the President on Sunday from the District of Columbia line to Morgantown where he is scheduled to inspect a bridge site prior to boarding his yacht for a trip down the Chesapeake to Crisfield The White House automobile will proceed to Crisfield where it will meet the President when he docks Monday morning. The escort will go to Annapolis where it will pick up the presidential party Monday afternoon for the return trip to Washington. Major Munshower said another eight-man escort will meet Mr. Roosevelt at Crisneld and lead him to Salisbury where he is scheduled to speak in the morning. He will then proceed to Denton for an afternoon address at 2 o'clock. State police will escort him from Denton to the Matapeake ferry for the trip across the bay to Annapolis. A special ferry was at first considered for the chief executive, but because of the heavy Labor Day traffic the ferry company didn't feel disposed to take one ferry out of public use. Major Munshower said the President will be escorted onto a reserved section of the ferry and will be separated from other passengers. Mr. Roosevelt expects to arrive in Annapolis about 4:30 o'clock and will spend some time at St. John's College before returning to Washington. Preparations for the President's visit are the most detailed ever made by the State Police force. Major Munshower said. He pointed out that the officers are as re- sponsibile for the President as are the secret service men who travel with him Rigid inspection of bridges along the route to be traveled by Mr. Roosevelt has been made. Patrolmen will be dropped off at strategic points along the route in advance of the arrival of the presidential party. Extra precautions are being made at Denton and Salisbury. Feeling against the so called "invasion" by ine President in behalf of the senatorial candidacy of Representative David J. Lewis, is said to be running high on the Eastern Shore and secret service operatives have been on the scene this week, laying plans for the Roosevelt tour. State Police and secret service men will be assisted by National Guardsmen and Boy Scouts in Denton and Salisbury- Major Munshower said that every available man will be used in handling the visit of the President He said it is unfortunate that Mr. Roosevelt chose Labor Day for his tour because of the unusual amount of traffic over the holiday. He explained that rest of the state will be practically without officers over the week-end. ATTEMPT OX LIFE Ponce.
