The first group to come to the board's office at the Court House was the Men's Bible Class of St. Matthew's Evangelical and Re formed Church in Bowling Green which saw a demonstration by Irvin J. Neat, Republican registrar, Wednesday night. William A. Wilson, board president, said that a better program can be presented at the Court House because the citizens can actually be shown one of the county's 103 new voting machines instead of just a demonstration board which reveals the basic principles involved in operation of voting machines. The board president emphasized that the board will continue to present programs to clubs whenever asked although he favors visits to the Court House by organizations situated in and near Cumberland.

The board, assigned by President ;isenhower. held hearings from Nov. 9 to Nov. 30. By tradition, its findings are not made public until they are received by the White House. Eleven nonoperating unions — made up of telegraphers . and others who do not actually man trains—asked for a wage'increase of 25 cents an hour, and a paid health and welfare insurance pro gram. The unions rejected an offer of a raise of 10% cents an hour. cause of improper expenditures in previous years. Kimble said he would oppose the cut on grounds that these expen ditures were made before two of the three present members of the Employment Security Board, administrative body of the depart mcnt, took office. The director disclosed the situation in an appearance before the committee to suggest laws tightening up department operations. He proposed that expense accounts submitted by members of the three-man board be cleared through the Board of Public Works, M a r y 1 a n d's statewide fiscal agency. Kimble also suggested that the administration of the department je placed in the hands of a single executive director and that a three-member board be set up to act on appeals from decisions in unemployment compensation cases. The department's major func< tions include the handling of unemployment compensation and job placements. It is supported by contributions to the unemployment compensation program by employers, direct federal aid for operating expenses, and State appropriations for salaries and other administrative costs. Kimble's proposal called for the new executive director to be appointed by the governor for a six- present head of the ESB unenv year term. This \ ould prevent theiployment compensation division. Kimble also told the subcommittee he saw little merit to a suggestion for creation of a new office ot deputy director. The suggestion, had come from a special committee headed by. Sen. Northrop (D- Montgomery). This would lead to an organization with "too many chiefs and not; enough Indians," Kimble said. The' subcommittee — composed of Dels. Luber (D-Balto 5t!n and Barnes (R-Carrolb and Sen. Bertorelli (D-Balto 1st) — noted that, , under the Northrop committee proposal, I h e deputy directorship would go to Stephen Cromwell, injection of politics into the appointment, he said, because the director's term >vould not coincide with that of the governor. The legislators said they also opposed the suggestion, but on grounds they did not believe in legislating anyone into office. • A Washington County Circuitj Court jury ruled in favor of the union yesterday after the union sued to force the insurance firm to pay up under a theft policy. The insurance firm refused to pay on the ground that there was no evidence of forcible entry and it looked like an "inside job," not covered by its policy. In his instruction to the jury, however. Judge George Henderson said it was up to the insurance firm to prove its theory. No arrests have been made in the case.
