THIRTY EVENING, TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD., THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1955 Dial PA-2-4600 for a WANT AD Ttktr flUe Block" • * V . May Lose Its Reputation ,;' Baltimore Grand Jury Recommends '- Sweeping Reforms -BALTIMORE l/f) — "The Block," which for many years has been to Baltimore what Skipper Street has been to Antwerp and Via Roma to Naples, may soon lose its standing as one of the lewd and lusty nightspots of the world. 'That is, if the city's grand jury has anything to say about it. :: The grand jury yesterday produced a 4'^-page report of a study it has been making into conditions, in" the world-famous section ofj East Baltimore Street. j sAmong its recommendations wa that minimum standards of illumi nation be set up for the clubs. The purpose of semi-darkness, said the jury, is quite clear. A little more light, it opined, "will be a deter rent to immoral activities." It also suggested a web of rules and regulations to curtail the activity of "sitters." Sitters are those women who remain unattached un til you signify your interest in buy ing them a drink. Also, said the jury, all those em ployed in a place offering live en tertainment and serving liquor should be fingerprinted. Thus persons convicted of narcotics violations, carrying weapons, gambling or sex offenses could —- and should — be .barred from working in the nighteries. There should also be certain standards, said • the jurors, as to the amount of non-transparent clothing an-entertainer must wear. And there should be some kind of a barrier between the performers and the audience, and a rule against entertainers 'mixing with the customers, said the jury. Tax Collector Plans Sale Of Baseball Club • RICHMOND, Va. iff)—The federal tax collector will sell' assets of the Richmond Virginians baseball club of the Triple A International League at public auction here Nov. 14''. to satisfy a tax claim of $79,218.68. ; The sale will be held dt 2 p.m. on the Virginians' home grounds, Barker Field. The lax collector seized the club's assets Tuesday Because' Consolidated Enterprises, Inc., trading as the. Richmond Virginians and headed by Harry C. Seibold, failed to pay admissions takes for 1954 .and withholding and social security taxes for. 1954-55. "JUp for sale will be the club's franchise, 18 player contracts and miscellaneous equipment. The club will be sold to the highest bidder. "Only payment of- taxes by Consolidated before Nov. 14 could prevent the sale. .Meanwhile, a group of six prominent Richmond business leaders was making .plans to place a bid for the club and franchise. E. E. Haddock, Richmond city council man who headed the drive two years ago to get the franchise, said the group was not interested in buying the Virginians as a "blue chip investment. It is interested only in keeping Triple-A baseball in Richmond." Salisbury Pay Increase Seen • SALISBURY ffl — Mayor Rollie AV. Hastings .plans to ask a five per cent pay increase for all city employes. Col. Ernest L. McLendon, executive city secretary, said during preliminary studies of department budgets, "The mayor, in view of the fact that wages are up all over, has this (the increase) under consideration." Salisbury's municipal payroll for 125 employes is about $7,400 a week. A five per cent increase would cost about $20,000 more a New Navy Ship Placed In Water BALTIMORE Hfi - The "Suri- bachi," first of a new line of Navy ammunition ships, is in the water and ready for the final work which must be done on her before commissioning. • The new ship, officially known also as the AE21, was launched yesterday in ceremonies attended by high Army, Navy and Marine Crops officers at the nearby Bethlehem-Sparrows Point Shipyard. !
