EIGHT EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND. MD., WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1955 Dial PA-2-4600 for a WANT AD Taker iccepts Local Street •ovemeiit Street Commissioner William H. •Buchholtz yesterday accepted the Frederick Street improvement project. 'And he announced he is exploring means to stretch funds remaining from a $350,000 urban development bond issue to cover extension of North George Street and widening one block of Franklin Street. The commissioner accepted the project for 'he City of Cumberland yesterday afternoon following an inspection made with G. Bates Chaires, district engineer for the Maryland State Roads Commission, and officials of the S. T. Brotemarkle Company, the contractor for the federal-aid project. Buchholtz said he was "highly pleased" with the modern street which has been provided and that the final results were beyond his expectations. .He termed the construction which! included the drainage, paving, curbing and sidewalks for some 7,000 feet of Frederick Street, from Woodlawti Terrace to Route 220, as an'Joutstanding job all around. -There are a few additional things to be done, he said, but they will be-taken care of by the city and the contractor wi'hin the next few days. Cost of the work, he said, will be ; ;3'b'dut $270,000, including the city's {estimated share of 3250,000 and •Jbout $20,000 worth of extras. »»TIe said there is a possibility of Mhte city's getting some money Sack when final costs are in, add- .'jing' : that the State Roads Commis- vsfoni which . had charge of construction," wilT try to have the final Sosts within:the next 30;days. DOCTOR RELEASED ON BAIL—A smiling Dr. A. Arnold Axilrod, his wife at his side, leaves the county jail in Minneapolis, Minn., after being released on $50,000 bond pending a decision by the state supreme court on an appeal. Dr. Axilrod, 50-year-old Minneapolis dentist, was convicted last week of first degree manslaughter in the strangling of Mrs. Mary Mooneri, 21, a patient. He drew a sentence of five to 20 years. 'Axilrod's attorneys, walking behind, him, said it would take several months before an appeal could be readied. . . • (AP Photofax) Jacoby On Errors Better Than Aces ; *At present, he said, the city has :'gBout $80,000.left from the $350,000 "Urban Development bond issue -^sold in 1953 to finance the:Freder- •jck Street job, extend North George ^Street and widen Franklin Street. •^Buchholtz said he has under con- :*sideratibn a less costly plan to :get from North George Street to ^Bedford thau in the original pro- igram, which called for connecting •to Sanders Street. :;:i,This, he said, would- -extend iNorth G e o r g e Street straight /through to Polk Street.

Ditching will begin, he said, as soon as pipe begins arriving 'iii quantity. Edwards said the 18-inch line will be laid from the glass plant property to the city and that the Cumberland Contracting Company plans to have it installed by early spring. . ;..: . The S. T. Brotemarkle Company, which was awarded the $3,820 contract for'unloading and storing the pipe, yesterday had slings pared and notified Commissioner E"wards the unloading job will began-today at 8 a. m. The arrival of the first carload of pipe, however,'does not set the stage for the beginning of installation. Officials said the car to be Hatrorth V Counsel By Mail unloaded today it not a "package" load, complete with fittings, and that a considerable variety of lengths and dresser couplings will have to be on hand before crews can begin the -installation job. Edwards said the pipe will be stored at the B & 6 Rolling-Mill yard arid used as'needed. He said some of the pipe will oe in'50-foot lengths and that the job of installation will go quickly when all preparations are complete. The overall cost of the 27,000 foot line which will supply the plate glass plant with water for sanitary purposes and standby fire protection, is estimated to be slightly over ; $400,000.

He will cover territory both near and far from our, home. He will- be away from home for varying lengths of time, say from a day to a month — and during these trips^his employers will pay all his expenses. From the time John first started working after hours, while still in school, he has always made his own spending money, never asking us for a penny. And since he has been employed full" time, we felt it our duty as parents to have him pay board—to learn responsible habits. Th'is .he has always agreed to. Now that : John- has a good- paying job, he pays his own modest accounts, takes good care of his clothes and is financially self- sufficient. The question before us, however, is this: John asks if he still has to continue paying board, if and when he is away, from home for a week or more in his new job. He thinks not, and my husband partly agrees with him. I feel he still has an obligation here—as he may be home weekends and the trips are simply part of his job as long as his expenses are paid. Parents Don't Need the Money The money involved isn't the point.' We can do jucely without it; and John says he will pay board gladly, as he respects my judge-1 ment. All of which puts me oh the I spot; John is still quite young and I want to do only what is right for him. But-am I right, in holding him to the board .bill in his ab sence? Or does he become independent of use when he is working elsewhere? John believes the latter; and 1 would like "to agree with him for his sake: but my intuition tells me differently. Perhaps your com ments will show us the tight. I love your columns. — D.S. Travelling Man Isn't A Gypsy DEAR D. S.: When you speak of paying board, you mean paying for an individual share in the comforts *f- your- overall, jiving arrangements, of course. You aren't referring to table board exclusively. So much for preface. " Now, if the essential purpose of having John pay board (as defined above) get him accustomed :o financially responsible attitudes, it would be quite unrealistic to waive his bill, when he travels for his firm. After all, even a travelling man isn't a gypsy when he takes to the road in pursuit of company business. Assuming he is a person of any substance,! who has been frugally acquiring a-backlog or useful and necessary possessions, he can't take the whole inventory with him, every trip. He has to have a place, somewhere, that : he'calls ijome—if only for storing his extra goods. And whether the travelling man owns his fixed-address, or rents it —in. the form 6f. a- house,. or an apartment or .a single room—the costs of upkeep don't come to a lalt just because he takes a trip. 3e has to pay something to insure that he will have a place-to come back to. Retaining Fee It Businesslike At a very minimum, the home owner pays taxes, retains an option on utilities, has to keep the grass cut, the structure in; repair, etc. And the apartment lessee has to continue paying a holding' rental; as does the permanent claimant to a room in a'lodging house. Otherwise his 'backlog goods would very likely be ejected into the streets. All of which has a bearing on John's question. Certainly he should continue to pay at least a retaining fee—"token" board, so to speak—while on the road, if he intends" to call your place home, and to live there between trips. That's the only businesslike way to do it. To strike a happy medium, between your idea of his paying as usual, and his idea of' paying nothing at home during trips, I suggest this: - Cut down his retaining fee when he is absent. Allow him a rebate tor the meals he isn't having at home; and assess him' only for room rent and accessory services, such as laundry, maybe, and looking after his effects. Thus if he pays $10 or $15 a week when home, you might charge him say $5 to $7 a week when he is away. —. M.H. . : i * Mary Haworth counsels through her column, not by mail or personal interview.
