ROCK BALTIMORE (fi - Maryland teachers were urged today to take part in an extensive public relations program to advance a five- year school program of the Maryland State Teachers Assn. They also were asked to reaffirm their year-old support of racial integration of schools "in a (air and lawful manner." The call for teacher action was sounded by the MSTA's Committee on Legislation in a report sub- milled at the opening of the association's 88lh annual convention. The convention, expected to attract nearly 14,000 public school teachers from all parti of (he slate, opened today in (lie Fifth Regiment Armory. The great gray stone armory was a hubub of activity and commotion as teachers registered, greeted friends, made plans for activities at the three-day. meeting, and inspected the 174 colorful educational exhibits set up by commercial suppliers and professional organizations. .Later in the day, at the first general session, the teachers were to hear an address by Gov. G. Mennen Williams of Michigan, a strong supporter of public qduca- tion now serving'his fourth two- year term in office. Williams has called .the Michigan Legislature into special session to consider, among other things, a ?200 pay increase for teachers. 'The Legislative Committee's report was submitled at the first of two meetings of the association's governing body, live Assembly. the Representa- The report, in addition to outlining the public informalion pro gram to advance the five-year program, also reviewed legislative action affecting schools during the 1955 session of the Maryland General Assembly. The MSTA's five-year' program calls for (1) addition of class. rooms at the rale of 1,000 a year throughout the state; (2) increased funds for teachers' colleges; (3) improved teacher retirement benefits; (<J) a State minimum salary scale of $3,200 to $5,000; (5) Slate aid for public libraries, and (6) Stale aid for driver education programs. During the 1955 Legislature, Hie committee reported, $440,500 was allotted for construction programs al Stale teachers colleges in' the general construction loan. Some improvements in the reliremenl system also went through. But a bill to implement the $3,200$5,000 minimum salary scale got an unfavorable report in a'House committee. A J4,600,(WO T -sla(e'-aid fund for school construction was vetoed. A proposal for 'increased Slate aid for libraries died In a Senate committee, and another for state aid for driver education They'll Do It Every Time LM_~ By Jimmy Hatlo VES-4ND HERE'S THE 6OALWTHIS IS'LIKE TOST FRQtt THE 1942 SLIPPERV. ¥ A MUSEUM R5CK-PODUrJKG4ME-vW'THERE!5 PIANO LESS BROCOLfc BIKE TIRE FROM THE LAST SIX-DAVBIKE RACE-1 GOT SIXTY-TWO.

' "We recommend," the committee said, "that teachers, pupils and other citizens throughout the State cooperate in effecting this change." The resolution was essentially Hie same as one adopted at last year's convention. Other resolutions called for: An expanding program of education from kindergarten through junior college "extended to ail, regardless of .age, race, creed or handicap." Establishing and maintaining standards "which will change the prevailing idea thai anyone can teach to a concept stressing the highly specialized skills, personal qualities and preparation require: for a successful teaching career.' School buildings "built and equipped in accordance witli tlic needs for carrying oul a sound, modern, educational program We deplore any austerity program in school construclion lhat ignores a policy of educationally -sound long-term investment." Equal educational opportunities for all cilicns of Maryland regardless of the geographical location of their residence. "The fi nancing ... is the joint respon sibilily of the local subdivisions and the Slate of Maryland." The nominating committee named Paul B. Stevens, guidance counselor at Baltimore City Col ioge. lo make the customary step up from second vice president to president of tiic .MSTA, succeeding B. M.elvin Cole, director of elementary education 'in Baltimore County. Violet Davis, supervisor of elementary schools in Harford County, was nominated for second vice president, putting her in line /or the presidency next year.

"Oooh, la, la, in five minutes," said Milt."He almost killed her," said Larry. - • "I seen it,", said Hoosevell. "Happened just like thai. He picked up Ihe soup. That's what he did. Could've killed her." "She's 'a funny kid, my wife," said Red, laughing. "Now tell the one aboul London," said Mill. in numerology and .her lucky number, seven, lhat she wouldn't take a U.S. TV bid until she found a play with seven people in the east.

Latest to feel the pinch are The Three Suns, who were playing a spot in San Francisco when the owner disappeared. He took all the meat, liquor and cash.

Pat Finch, who used lo slash derbies at the Stork Club, is now singing and, dancing in "Fanny," and Joan McRae, Ferrer Stars In Brilliant TV Showcase J!y CHARLES MERCER NEW YORK l/n—The production of ''Cyrano de Bergcrac" on NBC- TV demonstrated thai an hour-and- a-half television show can be too short. Jose Ferrer brought his brilliant interpolation of "Cyrano" to Producers' Showcase this week, rounding but performance on both stage and screen ib the same role. He was delightfully complemented by a lovely Roxane played by Claire Bloom, .an English actress who should be. required to stay in America after her performance in her TV debut... Anyone who saw Ferrer as Cyrano on Broadway must have regretted the cutting of many fine lines and characterizations from Edmond Rostand's drama of frus- traled love and uninhibiled swordplay in 17lh century France. Yet, oncc-upon-a-dime the tip collector given the inflexible limitalions of at the Harwyn, is understudying Jacqueline Scott in Dish/' 'The Wooden The impossible has happened— here's an actress who doesn't want lo be a star.

Thief Returns Empty Basket From Freezer ' MIDLAND, Tex. IT)—Somebody broke into Louis Moore's home and stole a wire basket filled with frozen steaks from his food locker. A week later the freezer again was raided. This time the culprit re- .urned the basket—empty. . time on TV. the cutting was intelligent and left the great video audience with the satisfaction of having seen a full-bodied play. Occasionally it seems empty' to review a television drama. Whether it was good or bad, it is past and will not be repeated. You either saw it or you didn't, and you either agree on disagree with the critic. Sometimes it's more profitable to look ahead and set the stage for something that's coming. This Sunday, for instance, Maurice Evans will present "Alice in Wonderland", over. NBC-TV. Tlie charm of "Alice" lies in (he perfect plausibility of all its impossibilities. That is to say, it's 'antasy and requires from an adult a suspension of a sense of' what's plausible. When Charles Lutwidgcj Dodgson, a brilliant mathematician, published his stories aboul Alice under the pseudonym of Lewis Carroll, adults in Victorian England were as delighted as their children.
