He said he saw his mother.come out of the bedroom and get the.gun.- ' Under cross-examimation by Defense Attorney R: Doyne 'Halbritter, the youth_ : admitted .that, his father had beaten both him and his.mother. He said he feared his father, but he also loved him. Immediately after the jury was selected jwsterday, it was taken to the scene of the shooting,-about 20 miles north of here, and returned to the courtroom: after lunch. Dailey said in his opening statement that -the stale intends to prove that the attractive brunette, after spending the afternoon visiting her husband's relatives, went home under the influence of alcohol and killed -her husband with' a ^25 caliber rifle. .:-..'•• Halbritter said the defense does not deny the shooting. In his brief opening statement he said, :"We expect to prove the shooting was accidental, unpremediated and in self defense." • 'October Flow Of,River Low The observed mean daily flow of the Potomac River at Cumberland during October was 190 cubic feet per second (123 million gallons per day), which "is 30.6 per cent of the 26-year October average. The daily flow varied between 246 cubic feet per second (159 million gallons) on October 16 to 166 cubic feet per second (107 million gallons on October 5. A decrease in storage in the Savage River Dam caused an average increase of 64.5 cubic feet per sec- or 33.9 per cent of. the flow in the Potomac River here. The total precipitation at Cumberland, as reported by the Weather Bureau, was 1.05 inches, 1.48 inches below the October average. The average daily temperature was 55.7 degrees, which was 1.1 degrees above normal for .October. The river flow report was issued by the local office of the Geological Survey of the U. S. Department of the Interior and signed by Ewejl H. Mohler Jr., engineer in charge. Richmond And Chicago Firms Aivarded Issue F. W. Craigie and Company of Richmond, Va., bidding jointly with Harris Trust and Savings Company, Chicago, submitted tne lowest average interest cost on, a $750,000 Water Department bond issue here today. The Mayor and Council, meeting in ; special session, accepted the bi<3 which averaged out to 2.4047727 per cent. Cost to the city before bonds are retired will amount to ?259,234.50, according to City Auditor Arthur B. Gibson. . Interest rates on;$350,000 in bonds maturing uctober i,1962 to 1969 inclusive will bear 2Vi per cent per annum while $400,000 matu'ririg October i, 1970 to 1974 inclusive Will bear 2.357-per cent per'annum. Six bids, '.representing approximately 20' investment. firms, were submitted oh" the issue. Second lowest bid was, that of Phelps, Fena and Associates (the number not specified), of New York, which bore an. average cost of 2.4890213. \ - • .; • ' '. Other-Bidders Others .in order of bid were Mercantile Safe Deposit and Trust Company, Baltimore, in association with Baker-Watts and Sfein Brothers and Boyce, 2.5308441 per cent: Alex Brown and Sons, Baltimore, in-association withlKidder, Peabody and"; Company; John' C. Legg and Company, Robert Garrett "and Sons arid Mead, Miller and Company, 2.5601576; Union Securities Corporation, New York, in association with Goldman, Sachs arid Company; 216753246; and Wach ovia Bank and. Trust Company, Winstori-Salem, N. C., in associa- .ion with Folger, Nolan arid W. B. Hibbs and Company, 2.7447325. Today's bid represented an even ower average interest cost than on the $2,400,000 -sewage treatment and flood protection bond issues sold in April 1954. The average cost on^that issue was 2.5222, Gibson said. Finance Commissioner John J. Long expressed pleasure at the amount of the-bids and said the result speaks well for the. credit of ;he city.' • ••'••• Market Not Glutted Gibson termed the bids "very satisfactory and is perhaps due ;o the fact the municipal bond market is not glutted at the moment and prices are in a stable position. This makes it possible for :ities with ;good credit rating and financial position to get advantage of a good rate," he said. Bonds .sold today are the first under powers-granted by constitu- :ional home rule. The issue is termed Water Improvement Bonds of 1955. For Water Projects It 'will be used to finance the Nforth Branch water line to Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company and urther improvements to the Lake jordon filtration plant. ' The bonds will become general obligations of the city with principal and interest paid first from water revenues and then by general taxation, if needed, while water rates are being boosted to adequate levels. •• : Legality of the issue was certified by Miles, Walsh and Stockbridge of Baltimore, following two Circuit Court opinions, later affirmed by-the Court of Appeals. The Appeals Court upheld the city's right to issue bonds without a referendum under' charter amendments authorized in the new home rule law.

City Officials See Crossing Gates In Use Systems Viewed May Be Installed Along Henderson Avenue Cumberland's mayor and council yesterday made a personal inspec- ion of the modern railway crossing system employed by the Baltimore and -Ohio Railroad Company. Mayor Roy W. Eves, commissioners William V. Keegan. William J. Edwards and William H. Buchloltz: City Attorney Thomas Finan; and City Engineer Charles ,R. Nuzum, went to ths iVashington area to obtain information on the crossing system j which had been proposed for Hen-| dersb'n. Avenue. /Between Cumberland and Silver] Spring the city fathers saw eight; crossing-gates .in actual use asj their train passed by. The gates! are installed at Paw Paw, North Mountain. Brunswick. Gaithersburg. Derwood, Rardolph and Forest Glen. ' ' .'• '. ^ .; • ' See Hyattsville Gales The best demonstration of the gates came at Hyattsville, which is one of the most dangerous and complicated crossings on the railroad.

Assessments A protest against recently-'in creased property assessments was made by residents of the 'vicinity of the Feldstein junk yard area in LaVale at a meeting of the LaVale Junk Yard Opposcrs . Association last night in the ''LaVale Fire Hall. ' Those home owners who live in the vicinity of th'e'jiink-yard-near the Long section of LaVale selected a name for their organization for the' continuation of its- opposition to the situation. • ' A public meeting will be held by the'group for all LaVale residents interested in this movement' next Monday at 7:30 p.'m. on the second floor of ;the fire hall. At the meeting last night, it was pointed out many of the properties in the- neighborhood- of the junk yard have-had assessments raised during-the past few months. A-spokesman contended that assessments should be lower, as the value of their property has depreciated by the expansion of the junk yard. A suit was filed by the group of residents-living in the junk yard vicinity against Abraham Feld- :tein, who operates the business. Feldstein; through an opinion of ^hief Judge George Henderson hi AUegany County Circuit Court was ordered to hide or move the junk. Feldstein has had the case taken :o the Maryland Court of Appeals. Another case against Feldstein, operating a junk yard without a permit in which he was found guilty in Trial Magistrates Court, has been appealed and will be heard in this session of Circuit Court. handles approximately- 10,000 vehicles a day. The completely automatic gates were put to the "acid test" yesterday when two vehicles became stalled on the crossing. : With, a Baltimore-Washington express traveling at more than 80 miles an hour, the-vehicles had enough time to clear the crossing. In the system used by the B&O,- the .driver has approximately 30 seconds to a minute to clear the tracks after the half-gates are dropped. • The crossing \at Hyattsville handles more than 50 passenger trains daily, and these trains frequently pass during the rush hours of street traffic. Nine channels of traffic pass over the crossing, resulting in a continuous stream of cars 'during the morning and evening hours.

In addition, the town's raffic lights at the intersection are nterconnected with the track circuits so that vehicles on the cross- ng are given the right-of-way to enter or cross U. S. Route 1 whenever a train is approaching. Gates Must Trip The operation of the crossing signals is also automatic and de signed so that no train can get a signal to proceed over the crossing on any track until the gates are owered. This system was installed in 1949 after a series of serious accidents, ncluding the death of a watchman. No accidents have occurred since the crossing gates were installed, and this system is likely to be the one which will* be set up in Cumberland. Another complicated system observed by the council yesterday vas at Riverdale where the cross- ng is on the main line of the B&O Vom New York to Washington, and is a dangerous spot because of he frequency and speed of trains, he complicated arrangements of he streets and the density of both chicle and pedestrian traffic. Here the train traffic includes approximately 50 passenger trains daily, plus freight trains.
