.1 •••t ••f if' TWENTY EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND. MD., THURSDAY, DECEMBER 8, 1955 Dial PA-2-4600 for a WANT AD Taker Camp Detrick Civilian Vote Attempt Slated Hyde Plans Another Try To Give Voting Rights For Civilians WASHINGTON 7 iffi — Further at tempts to give the voting right to civilians of Camp Detrick. Fred prick County, .Md., are planned b\ Rep. Hyde (R-Md). The fight dates back severa years. In 1953. the camp civilian? carried (heir suffrage attempt up to the Maryland Court of Appeals and lost. Hyde has a bill before Congress designed to win the vote for the civilians. His bill would retrocede to Maryland jurisdiction held by the United States over lands within the military reservation. To meet certain objections from the Department ol Defense, he has amended the bil to give to .Maryland such jurisdic tion "as may be necessary to per mit residents therein to exercise the right of franchise as resident, of the State of Maryland and fo no other purpose." Hyde said he plans to renew his fight for the bill when Congres convenes in January. No hearing has been held. The Army, he said, still has the matter under study with the view of making" a further report to th House Armed Services Committee Its initial report was unfavorable But Hyde contends Army fears ar unfounded that his legislation would create any indefinite criteria con cerning responsibilities the Slat may impose as prerequisites t voting rights. There appears to be a precedent he said, since residents of Los Alamos, 'N. M., were given th right to vote by a federal law un der which the United States re troceded to the stale for that pur pose. Any retrocession provided by his bill, Hyde said, would not lake ef feet until accepted by the State o Maryland. Suprintcndents (Continued from Page 19) long run do more good than any thing else." Engineer Demand Webster commented that ap parenlly much of the furor stems from the announcement made re cently that Russia was training ten engineering sludenls lo America's one. Eight to ten years ago, there was no serious shortage of teachers, he added, and college students selected the courses which they thought would be of the most benefit to them economically, or the ones in which they could achieve success, Webster said. The rapid strides in many industries during the past few years, he pointed out, has created a demand for engineers. In commenting on the failures in mathematics and English, Webster explained that the supervisory staff of the Board of Education keeps a close watch on grades. Every six weeks the supervisors receive reports on the number of failures in each high school and junior high school subject. Check On Failures Those with the high percentage are checked by supervisors who confer with the principals to see if the reason for the failures could be teacher failure or pupil failure. Webster also pointed out thai in college instructors are not required have teacher-training such as public school teachers are required lo have. The college instructor is required to know his subject mailer and have the necessary degrees, he added. He also said that (lie requirements for college entrance are such that a high school graduate must receive 60 per cent A's and B's during the lasl Iwo years of high school and must get no grade below C.

(AP Photofax) Obituary 19) Holiday (Continued from Page 19) shopping season in Salisbury on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Hagerstown Hopeful Hagerslown merchants brought Santa Claus in by helicopter and distributed 6,000 candy canes lo the kids last Sunday. They had been wary of a recent layoff at the Fairchild Aircraft Division but announcement of a new contract last week and the expected rehiring has brightened employment prospects there. Merchants were "very optimistic" .and reported business "as good, if not better" than lasl year. Annapolis retailers saw conditions about the same as lasl year, sales up slightly but otherwise normal. • Representatives of Baltimore's major department stores all agreed business was up. Their comments ranged from "slightly favorable" to "very excellent" and one even predicted business would run 5 to 10 per cent above 1954. i, The Baltimore merchants also 'agreed shoppers got an early start on their shopping but said thoy experienced no great rush like stores in the smaller cities reported. | The body is nl the Scarpclli- Bui business is good.

"Girl Crazy" Cast At Fort Hill Praised A fast-moving farce comedy, "Girl Crazy," directed by Miss Helen Smith, will have its only public performance tomorrow night in Fort Hill auditorium. A presentation for the student- body this afternoon revealed a highly talented cast, a beautifully mounted and authentic setting'and the professional-like direction to bo expected of Miss Smith. A farce such as "Girl Crazy" has to be played to the hilt and without dragging or it loses its impact. This achievement is one of many good marks to be credited to the Fort Hill production. Jane Hausman and Jan Sichler, both experienced thespians, carry the romantic interest with ease and artistry. The former has grown steadily in dramatic excellence and Siehlor has always shown a definite flair for the stage. Klwood Harden, winner of this year's best actor award at Fort Hill, gives a lively and thoroughly competent portrayal of the taxi driver who finds himself elected sheriff of a Wild Wesl community. His versalility is boundless. As an impressive demonstration of acting — projecting a semi- straighl characlerizalion of Lank, a killer, entirely different from his real life self—Richard Feller is outstanding. He conveys an impression of reserve power and dominance that ranks with the best amateur dramatic achievements. Two other male characlers deserve special commendation — George Pilzer for his very fine interpretation of Ihc old caretaker role, and Robert Smilh as "anolher playboy" in which he does a really grand portrayal. Annalee Fancy and Jane De Polo, the latter winner of Fort Hill's best actress award, are notable among a talented group listed on the program as "girls from Chicago and poiilts east" The others are Carol Parker, Glenda Campbell, Donna lines, Carol Parks and Helen Crawford. Thomas Arnold is excellent as a TOP DRIVER — Robert Hugh Stevenson of Hagerstown, a Midland native and former Cumberland resident, recently was named "Driver of Dis- tinclion" for Pennsylvania Greyhound'Company. Pennsylvania Governor George M. Leader presented him with a certificate, and Ihe company gave him a wrist watch. He drives on the Washington- to-Piltsburgh line. Mexican bandit, and Clyde Campbell and Robert Huck are praiseworthy as cowboys. Other minor roles are acted with distinction by Vincent Snyder and Charles Hornbrook. Taking these high school actors as a whole, they perform like real thespians in .the ensemble scenes where co-ordination, quick sponses and good direction are indispensable. "Girl Crazy" is a change of pace from recent Fort. Hill'shows, and the comedy of life on a dude ranch will surely please tomorrow night's audience.—J. W. H. Egypt To Get Loan WASHINGTON tfi — Egypt is expected to be assured within a week of Western loans' to help auild her long-dreamed-of dam on :he Upper Nile River. Novel Review Slated Today KEYSER—The third in a series of Classics Club programs will be presented this evening at 6:30 in (he library at Potomac State College. David G. Nuzum, head of the English department, will review Robert Pcnn-Warren's recent novel, "Band of Angels." "Band of Angels," a chronicle of the life of Amantha Starr, is set in the Civil War era.

B'H'n and reared on a Kentucky plantation before the war, she is summoned from her duties al Oberlin to learn that she is really a slave who is to be sold with the rest of the property. Goethe's "Faust" was the sub- jecl of discussion by Kenneth H. Haines, of- the modern language department, at the last meeting of the group.
