Auto Parts Concern Will Employ 1,000, Senator Bcall Says NEW YORK W! — Sen. J. GIci Bcall (R-Md) said today rcpresen alives of a German auto par company interested in cstablishin a plant in the United States, pron ised to visit the Cumberland, Me area later this month. . Beall, who returned today on 11 liner America after a month i Europe, said he and William Walsh, former Maryland attorne general, met with. representative oC the firm, which he did not iden lify. He said the proposed plan would employ at least 1,000. ..The Cumberland area, Bca said, has been designated by th U. .S.. Department of Labor as labor surplus area for the last fiv years. Bcall said he also' met a rubbe by-products official who cxpresse interests in the industrial possibi .ilies', of Western Maryland. Bcall said "The Swiss people botli in government : and in In watch industry, arc very con cerned with 'efforts to increase tar iffs which, if effective -would pro liibit the sale of Swiss watches i (He United States." He said the. Swiss were th largest purchasers of Marylan tobacco, that they buy up to 5 million worth annually, and tha he* would work to see that "tw xvay trade" continued. , Beall attended the Internationa Labor Organization Conference i Geneva as an unofficial observe for the State Department at ses sions devoted to textiles. Tax Court Plan Aired HAGERSTOWN W-The Board ot Washington County Commission crs voles tomorrow on the ques lion of whelhcr lo establish a tax court to review properly assess mcnl prolest cases. The proposal to establish the court under provisions of a State enabling act was made by Boan President W. Lee Elgin "to gc the board out ot politics" in property assessment cases. Elgin-says a properly owner is "craiy" if he doesn't protest be cause "75 per cent" of those who have protested' were given reduc tions. He reasoned that a three-man lax court would take the business of passing on• assessments out.o the field of politics. He also said he doesn't believe the commission ers are qualified to judge property values. Commissioner Chester Delphey has said he would vote, with Elgin in favor of the court, but Commis sioncrs George Fockler and Clarence Eldridge said they, favor continuing as in the past with the board retaining its review powers. The filth commissioner, Harr> Snook, holds the key. And he isn't saying how he will vote. However, he has said thai he is "generally opposed to the commissioners and other elected officials delegating their power and authority lo appointed officials, committees and commissions."
