Webster, superintendent of public schools, today issued a statement in connection with published reports (bat the Mount Royal'.- School Parent- Teacher Association had complained of conditions as. far as school/bus transportation is concerned. Representatives From County Express Views Delegate Fred B.. Driscoll, :'a member .of the Legislative Council of the General Assembly, said today that he intends to bring the runaway truck problem to the attention of the 'council at a meeting next.Wednesday in Baltimore. He said he plans to ask that a special committee be set up by the council to confer, with the State Police, Motor Vehicle Commission State Roads Commission, Maryland Motor Truck Association, AFt Teamsters Union and any other groups deemed necessary .U 1 compile a report together with recom- 'mendations for any .regulations or Webster said that upon checking | lcg j slalion found lo be necessary with the principal of the sishool and looking at the transportation records that, to.lhe best of his knowledge, never in Allegany County has one bus carried as many as 92 pupils. He also said that no one bus has ever made four trips, which would mean that some pupils would be required to remain long after school lo be,transported home. These were two of the complaints which were discussed by the PTA units at a recent meeting. Webster said there are approximately 135 pupils being transported to Mount Royal School from the Potomac Park-Bowling Green area. One bus. with a scaling capacity of C6 passengers, makes two trips both morning and afternoon .A bus with a sealing capacity of 66 is allowed to-earry 11 standees, making it safe lo carry 77 pupils. The raled capacity far exceeds those lo be transported, Webster pointed out. Meanwhile, Ihc quarterly inspection, of buses and passenger cars used to transport school children has been scheduled for November 14, 15 and '16. The inspection schedule for Monday. November 14, includes FMnt- stonc at 8:45 a. m. Pincy Plains at 10 a. m. and Oldlown at I p. m.

The delegate also said a review of the motor vehicle laws as they pertain to the big trucks should be made to determine whal regulations should be tightened to eliminate any faulty conditions which result in the accidents. •' See For Action "Something definitely should be done in the matter."

Delegate Estel C. mehtcd that since (he Iragic acci dcnl he has given much thought to what could be done to prevenl a re currencc of such mishaps. Kelley said he believe an addi tional braking system on Ihe big Governor To Call Meeting On Runaways Possible Legislation To Be Studied By Department Heads Gov. McKcldin told the Evening Times -today that he plans meeting soon- with top officials of the State Police, Slate Roads Commission and 'Department of Motor Vehicles to discuss possible legislation 'and suggestions in connection with trucking accidents on state highways. Thee meeting will also consider what can be done under existing legislation, the governor said. Col.. Elmer F. Munshower, super : intcrident of State Police; Russell H. McCain, chairman of the SRC. and other officials will attend the session. The -governor has called the meeting as the result of the accident in La Vale on October 19 in which a runaway truck crashed into a car arid 'another truck killing five parsons. Four of the victims were residents/of Frostburg. SIIC To Make Study . A I'tractor-trailer truck loaded with sheets of metal roared down from 'atop Big 1 Savage Mountain (wKlch is more, than 2,800 feet high) and through Frostburg, Eckhart and Clarysville before crashing into Ihb two vehicles in LaVale, approximately 11 miles from the start of the runaway. McCain has notified the Maple: hurst Counlry Club of Frostburg, which made a number of suggestions on safety measures which could be followed, that two officials of his department have been requested to study the matter and make recommendations. ; The SRC chairman said that George N. Lewis .Jr., of the traffic department and No'rman M. Prilc'helt.of the engineering- department will head up the study. Signs Proposed • The club's suggestions included placing signs on Big Savage Moun- lain west of Frostburg to warn [ruckers to go into holding gear while descending the mountain, as there is a continuous downgrade as far east as Cumberland. The club urged that truckers DO required .to pull off the.road at the top. of the mountain 'to read a' sign explaining regulations, and lo check Iheir brakes before heading downhill. ... • • • Also among the safely proposals was..a suggestion that the State Police set up a permanent runaway patrol to stop trucks which ignore -regulaUohSi-In-case of- an actual runaway,a patrol car would try to get ahead of the truck, warn traffic out of the way, and lead the truck off the road at a safe spot Earlier, Major William H..-Web' ; er, Slate'-Policc executive'- officer, said the Maplohurst . proposals "ought lo help," but predicted that really • effective enforcement' prob trucks such as an electrically, ably would require legislation by operated method would be a good the General Assembly, idea. This suggestion has been' made by a number of Pennsylvania authorities who are probing two recent tractor-trailer truck crashes in that slate. One suggestion by Kelley is for :he establishment of checking sta- Jons atop Big Savage Mountain or other mountains in Allegany County under the jurisdiction of he county. This would be done only if the state fails Ib* come up with some program to do the job, Kelley said. Each truck would be charged nn inspection fee and the money used to pay the personnel at the checking stations. Cresapto>vii Youth'.Council Setup Planned The.

City Dockets • Exception To Airline Plan Officials Seek To Have Cumberland Made Permanent Slop . The city has filed an exception to an Allegheny Airlines applica- .ion to .classify the city as a tem- jorary (three year) intermediate loint on ils schedule ralher than lermanenl. Cily Attorney Thomas B. Finan said today Allegheny filed before ihe Civil Aeronaulics Board on Dctober 11 an application for cer- .ifying certain pojnts as temporary and permanenl. The requests were based, on traffic from the various points. While there is no danger oC losing air service, Finan said it is. felt ihat the city has the potential here to develop lo the point where it should be classed as a permanent aoint in the Allegheny schedule. Mayor Roy W. Eves added that he had asked the Chamber of Commerce to file a letter with the CAB in the city's behalf. Sent Last Week Finan's exception was sent to the CAB last week and will be entered into.the record at the hearing''in Washington November 1. •..:•••• In ils application, Allegheny.said on the basis of most recent available data, the points it wishes"to class as temporary generated .'less than an average of five enplaned passengers a day, therefore generating insufficient traffic to warrant that public convenience'and necessity require permanent -certification.

'•• The loc^l station reported September its best month of the year with 90 passenger boardings on 35 flights. Thai is 32 per cent higher than (he same month a year ago. Allegheny planes also carried out 131 pounds of mail last month." George, a handsome, well-built chap, isn't taking a regular course at Allegany, but is going from one class to another observing classroom work. He feels that after he "picks up' the English language, he'll be able to begin a regular course at the school. Helped By Uncle George's Uncle Tom is helping him along. Mr. Paris still has possession of several old-time Greek-English dictionaries, and after closing his shop on Baltimore Street and on Sundays f he takes ime out to teach the boy the English language.

Mr. Paris has three irothers and two sisters still living in Greece, and ever since World War II he has sent them money to rebuild their homes and provide funds for food, clothing and the wherewithal to meet the high cost of living in the "old country."
