TWENTY-TWO EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND. MD., TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1955 Diar PA-2-4600 for a WANT AD Ttkea Group Backs Road Director BALTIMORE I/B - A Legislative Council committee last night gave unanimous; approval to a bill which would replace the,three-man State Road Commission with a Department of State Roads headed by a single director. The'action by the Budget and Finance Committee followed a rec qmmendation for scrapping the present SRC set-up by the governor-appointed Green Commission. The council's proposed bill, however,-differs in one important - pect from the recommendations of the Green Commission, which ad- vocated the roads director be appointed and serve at the plcasui of the governor. Del. Boone (D-Balto County chairman of the Legislative Com cil's committee, said his' group bill would require that the selec tion of the director be subject to Senate approval. That proviso also would apply t the three-man roads policy board— of which the director' would be member — recommended by th Green Commission. If the full coun cil approves the bill,-it will be pu to the General Assembly.

Robert G. Brady, 48, of Hyattsville, was sentenced yesterday in Federal Court to 30 days in prison and fined $500 for embezzling money he collected. Assistant U. S. Atty:, Walter E. Hack Jr. said an: official of the Archer Hardware Co. 'of Riverdale, Md., was called in by the tax bureau to talk over paying up some ccial security taxes the company owed. Black said when he ng with.Norman D. Archer, com>any secretary, they .discovered Jrady had given Archer a receipt or a $100 payment, then turned n a receipt and report to the bur- au showing he had collected only so. .: Judge W. Calvin- Chesnut also noted that Brady has "added to he offenses for which he was in- icted by his inattention to his case n court." The judge said Brady was ate showing up for trial of his ase two-days in a .row: Archer added that 'the'company s now/current in Its tax obliga- ons. • '•' ' . • • U. S. Civilian (Continued from Page 13) Each family is' responsible foi punishing its own violator. This makes the crime rate very low since the punishment is given in public and all do what they can to prevent "embarrassment" to the family. Japanese religious life still tends toward the Shinto and Buddhism, however, says Foley, the young Japanese shows interest but remains undecided about turning to Christianity. -. Older people want the U.'S. to get out of Japan, Foley believes since they feel -"the occupation still exists as long as we are there." This is true especially in southern Japan where the atom bombs were .dropped. .People there are not bitter about the bombs exactly' but can't 'figure why they were dropped on Japan and not on Germany. : ' : Those in politics also want the U. S. out for political reasons.

He found the "ruling group' centered in . Tokyo;: the farmer still living, the same way as he has for centuries, doing what they are told and believing everything they hear.' , . The major cities such 'as Tokyo have modren conveniences. Bui ho other places. They have radio television, household appliances but the price is beyond the working class who make 12,000 "yen. a month (less than $50). TV sets start at 280,000 yen. Among the radio-TV'show 'favorites are wrestling and quizzes; On sports, Foley says' baseball will eventually become the Jap anese .national pasttime'.as it • is here. If ever there . is a "real World Series" Japan will be a top contender. There is good • hunting. Foley has hunted for bear at Hokkaido in Northern Japan, duck and.deer in the south. There are limits. He, has also fished "but never caught anything." ,Foley used the' best rods .and reels in fishing but these expensive rods and reels are only for export as far as the Japanese are concerned. They use more primitive methods and "catch fish by the thousands." The country is ;also. becoming golf and trapshooting conscious. Foley held the all-Kyushu Island trapshooting championship' before rie left for home. Of clothing, he said all is tailor- made and available two days after ordered. Prices are -so fabulous "You go broke saving money." Japanese food cannot compare to Chinese food in his opinion. The Japanese believe food should be pretty, the taste secondary. Chinese prefer taste to looks. Despite the choice, however, he still took most of his meals at the U. S, commissaries. Roads In Bad Shape After experience with Japanese roads, "it was a pleasure to drive across the United States," Foley said, for in Japan, a 40-mile trip is like going across country, especially in preparations. . It is necessary to carry extra tires and extra gas in the car trunk. Roads are pocked with holes and constructed of dirt. "It takes four hours to go 40 miles," he said. Condition of the roads is explained by the fact that old women are hired to do construction \york for 100 yen (27 cents a day). There are, however, crack trains on the government-owned railway. Equipment is also of the best, and travel is inexpensive. Passengers travel first, second or third class but the average Japanese 'must travel third class because he cannot afford to do otherwise. The Japanese people, polite by nature to each other, lose that politeness when it comes to boarding a train, Foley said, .adding ."they. travel packed in like sardines." There is a saying in Japan that a man away from home should feel no shame. That is why so many, who are perfect gentlemen when at home, really "cut loose" when in arrange city, Foley said. Whether this is why they endure travel "packed like sardines," Foley did not say. ed- private physicians have given 100,000 polio vaccine shots to Maryland youngsters.'.., " •.'; So far 'there has been 'more 'than enough vaccine, it reported. The 100,000 shots are exclusive o those given to youngsters who.go them as'first and second grader at school last Spring and now ar getting their second'free-injection under the program sponsored b the National Foundation for : In fantile Paralysis. . , : The Health Department .reportei in one rural Maryland.county only 50 per cent of the youngsters :whi got the,initial shots last Spring hai returned to get their second .shots Dr. Edward Davens, chief of th department's Bureau of"Preventive Medicine, said, .there. was no con elusive explanation' of the 'failure of some children to get their sec ond shots; In another rural • county where the work has been'completed, 98 pe cent came back for second "shots In a large metropolitan county i was 99 per cent. "My overall impression,is tha | the enthusiasm arid acceptance-o the vaccine in urban-and'suburban areas far exceeds that in the rur al," Dr. Davens-.-said:." • : \ "The reasons are: obviously mul tiple : and complex.'the^ attitude o the family physician toward • th i vaccine is one'important factor."The individual, ancl;, recent com munity experience with 'p^raiytl polio is another, the education and degree of reading about the'vicis situdes of ihs vaccine is yet anoth er. Jjparly everyone has developed a degree of caution-and scientific skepticism which undoubtedly ac counts, for the 'wait and see' atti tude.. " . •..' :.•• . . " • "Finally, the. Polio season is over in Maryland ^and there is no great urgency, since the .next season does hot start until next July." Since the free innoculations have not been completed throughout the state, no statewide percentage ol "repeaters" is yet available; About 112,000 first' and' second >raders got 'their first'shots, in Maryland.,- last spring under - the Drogram. That was about'90 per cent of the estimated 126,000 eligi- ile. _ \ Dr. Davens said the 100,000 figure for shots administered by private physicians is an -.estimate because some doctors hold back re- wrting cards until .after th? second injection. - '" '• •- '>..

'tfi • — A State trooper who arrested Larry Mac r Piia-.i- at Bowie Race Track two years ago testified yesterday about a fight which led to MacPhail's dismissal as boss of the track. Trooper L. C. Alvin Robbins told a Baltimore County .Circuit Court jury he preferred not to repeat some of MacPhail's language because there were women in the courtroom. Robbins testified as MacPhail's breach of contract suit against the track entered its second week. MacPhail, former big league baseball magnate before entering the horse racing business, charges he was fired without just cause and the track owes him • $267,000 in back pay and interest. In dismissing, him as presiden'. arid executive director, owners of (he track cited MacPhail's conduct in the clubhouse one day in April. 1953, ; and his arrest later iii • the day. . , • • > •.-•'.•-. ' Robbins..testified. MacPhail. used abusive language in complaining to him about traffic conditions at the track. The v tr.ooper added that MacPhail tried to-, knee Muni- in: the groin in a scuffle that followed, so he handcuffed tiie track official and took him to the Hyattsville.police station. ' Robbins also told of charging MacPhail with drunk and disorderly conduct and assaulting an officer. MacPhail was barred from the track by the Maryland raaja commission several days afterwJe alleged incident. He failed to appear for a hearing on the charges brought by Robbins' and the case was never tried. • . contributions •"' wen •toward -the : .station Additional listed today wagon 'fund of Friends' Aware o Handicapped ^Children. .Mrs,,_John J..-Long, president said the following •• contributed United .Council of Church'Women $10; Mrs- Eleanor Boyd Fink, $3 Past President's Club of the-VFtt Auxiliary, r ?5;v American Legion Auxiliary .Victory'Unit of Western port; $25:' Columbia , Street PTA ;] Ladles .Bible .Class'' of St Mark's'". .Evangelical • Reformec Ihurch, $10; and the bake sale p: friends' Aware,' $55.
