PAGE 68 Dal,imore,Thur;day, THE EVENING SUN 7 . 5B PAGE 68 50 Of Jobless Seek Benefits On Wrong Day By Richard Frank The State Employment Secu rity Department said today that 50 per cent of those reporting under the new extended benefits program appeared at the office at 37 Hopkins place on the wrong day of the week. In a spot check of the first 127 to report early today, 64 were found to have been scheduled for other days. The other 63 were on schedule. Robert B. Kimble, executive director of the department, warned that serious tieups would result unless claimants for extended benefits reported on the same days of the week as when, they had last collected benefits. Earlier, the first unemployed person in the nation to file a claim tinder the new Federal unemployment benefits program passed through the line at 37 Hopkins place at 7.30 A.M. today. Charles James, 42, of 1334 Wet North avenue, received claim card No. 1 as Maryland began its participation in the new program of extended benefits. Mr. James, who lost his Job as a stock clerk in a tire com pany last October 2b, ran through the allotted 26 weeks of jobless benefits in April. 13 More Checks Under the new law, he Is entitled to 13 additional weekly benefit checks beginning today, so long as he remains unemployed. The first beneficiary of the new program, who is married and has a son In the Army, was among 50 unemployed Baltimor-eans who gathered in front of the Hopkins Place office of the State Department of Employment Security at 7.15 A.M. today. The early morning lines have been running shorter than anticipated, according to Robert B. Kimble, executive director of the ESD. Claims under the extended Continued, Page 36, Column 1 Tommy Triumphant Mayor, Cut To Quick At Whirlybird Ceremony, Cuts Up Over Protocol Slight By Walter Ward The city got its first sched uled helicopter service off to a flying start today after a hi larious protocol hassle over who would cut the inaugural ribbon, Governor McKeldin or Mayor D'Alesandro. Before the ceremonies, held to build up an atmosphere of good will, were over, the Mayor had walked out in a huff; other city officials were trying to restore some semblance of order, and a public-relations man reversed the order of the day. The hassle started when the Mayor drove to the heliport at the end of Pier 4, Pratt street, and smilingly walked up to cut the ribbon which would formally establish helicopter service between Baltimore, Washington and Andrews Air Force Base. It was then that someone ex plained to the Mayor that Gov ernor McKeldin would cut the ribbon. .The Mayor, it was ex plained, would stand beside the Governor to have his picture taken. That did it. "Don't they know I'm Mayor of this city?" Mr. D'Alesandro cried. "If they're going to have a Republican cut the ribbon, I don't want to attend." "I never heard of such a thing," he continued. "You don't think they would invite me down to Annapolis to break ground for the State House, do you?" "I'm Going Home" "I'm going home." With that the Mayor strode angrily off the dock, leaving the distraught public relations man fignring out what to do. "I don't blame you, Tommy," said George Carter, director of public works. He left, too. But City Councilman Leon Rubenstein had other ideas. He chased after the Mayor's car, which already had started moving, crying: "Wait a minute, Tommy, wait a minute." "You can't leave," Mr. Rubenstein said. "You're the Mayor. You ought to attend." The Mayor said he was leaving. "They won't let the Governor Continued, Page 61, Column 2 U.S. Pay Raise To Bring $5 Million Into Area By Robert Blake More than $5,000,000 in Federal pay raise funds will be placed into circulation in the Baltimore area within the next few weeks, after President Eisenhower signs a bill to guarantee the Government's classified employees a 10 per cent pay raise retroactive to last January. The measure effects 26,598 Civil Service employees in Baltimore, and 50,000 employees in Maryland. The bill will grant an average annual increase of $531 and will increase the annual payroll in Baltimore more than $13,000,000, officials estimate. $250 Retroactive Average The gross retroactive pay In Baltimore will average $250, but the "take home" will be $188.75 when 18 per cent for Federal income tax and 6V4 per cent for Civil Service retirement is withheld, it is reported. The bill cleared Congress Tuesday when the House took just five minutes to approve and send it to the White House without debate or opposition. The President is expected to sign the measure into law next week, thus ending a two-year battle to win higher salaries for white collar personnel. July 1 Plan several agencies here are planning to start distribution of the retroactive pay checks around July 1. Other agencies hope they can release checks on July 15. Before the Classified employ- ees bill, the President approved a measure to give 530,000 postal employees, including 4,051 in Baltimore, a 10 per cent raise retroactive to January 11. The Post Office has set a tar get date of July 25 for the dis tribution of retroactive checks. SPECIAL NOTICES K-lfil tiQi (.nlnrnri restart rant, hospital help waiting.

Left to right are Senator Beall, Governor McKeldin, the Mayor and City Councilman Leon Rubenstein, chairman of the Council's Aviation Committee. Are You Paying 'Hi' Dough For A Lo-Fi? How hi is ft? Or, how high is hi-fi? A City Councilman says it is too high. Councilman Richard D. Byrd (D., Third) says he thinks there may be talse advertising involved in the sale of lo-fi phonographs billed as hi-fi. He visitea a inena ot nis tne other night, an intern at Johns Hopkins Hospital who can ill afford to spend more than a few patients will bear. "See my new hi-fi set," the doctor said proudly. Grates On Ears Mr. Byrd, a hi-fi buff who has tweeters (high frequency speak ers) and woofers (low frequen cy), looked down at a normal looking phonograph that emitted sounds and noises that grated on his sensitive ears. "That certainly is quite a sound you've got there," he said, wincing. But on his way home he de cided that Baltimore's buyers were often-times paying "hi" dollar for lo-fi players. Mr. Byrd's idea is to estab lish some standard for hi-fi pho nographs, if one hasn't already been legislated, and restrict aa vertisers from calling routine players "hi-fi." Useful Definitions But the problem is, what is a hi-fi player? "My understanding is that it should at least have more than one speaker," Mr. Byrd says, By David Culhane but the ones I've seen on sale don't." Mr. Byrd says that perhaps the manufacturers themselves have some useful definition that would protect buyers who think they're getting a hi-fi for a song. One expert defined a hi-fi set as the reproduction of music in the entire range in which it is played so that the music sounds the same as it does when you hear it in the concert hall. But that's a rather hi-fi defini tion in itself, covering a pretty wide range. Mr. Byrd's question is what components must a hi-fi contain.- Many experts would disagree Continued, Page 36, Column 4 A HOME LOAN I HOME FOLKS See Us Today For Complete Information About Buying or Building a Home ' B1ABF01B FEDERAL SAVINGS & LOAN ASS'N Incorporated 1903 2G00 Block E.

Bid For Tunnel Land Renewed The Federal Government stands to lose from $3,500,000 to $6,300,000 if it doesn't grant fifteen acres of land at Hawkins Point for construction of a second harbor tunnel, the State Roads Commission predicted today. In a letter to the Federal Bureau of Public Roads today, the SRC restated its request that the Federal Government turn over the land to it at no cost, as provided by Federal statute.

June 19 Meade Alcorn, the uniquely cautious chairman of the Republican National Committee, predicted today that the GOP will do just fine m Maryland this year. Mr. Alcorn shook up the poli tical cliches two months ago when he told White House re porters that while he expected the Republicans to win the House of Representatives, "I don't think it is in the cards now for us to take the Senate." In assessing the party's Mary land prospects today, he did not repeat - this flight from tradi tional optimism. Mr. Alcorn said the State GOP will reelect Senator J. Glenn Beall, elect Representative James P. S. Devereux to the governorship and succeed with much of the rest of its ticket as well. "That's a governorship we should get," the chairman said of the 1958 Maryland race. Present Set-Up Republican Governor Theo dore R. McKeldin is barred from a third term. The Democratic candidate is J. Millard Taws, veteran State comptroller. Mayor D'Alesandro, of Baltimore, is opposing Senator Beall. Mr. Alcorn said the national GOP recognized that "a different situtation" is indicated among Maryland Democrats this year namely, that the party seems more unified than it has been in the recent past He acknowledged that this made the Republicans' task more difficult and required the waging of "an aggressive campaign." "Great Campaigner" But he emphasized that he ex pected just such a campaign. He praised Senator Beall as "a great campaigner" and repeated his prediction of a top-of-the-ticket sweep. Maryland Democrats have not elected a governor or senator since 1946, despite a 2V4-1 edge in registrations. Bflt they profess to sense a Democratic trend in 1958. This "trend," which has been reported nationally, was discounted by Mr. Alcorn. "In 25 years in politics." he said, "I've always heard about trends, but Tve never heard them defined." Adams Controversy Asserting that elections are won In November and not in June, the GOP chieftain pointed to the Republicans' unexpect ed success in 1946 and the Democrats' turnabout two years later. Similarly, he Indicated that he believes assessments of the political impact of the Sherman Continued, Page 61, Column 2 FRANCIS M. THOMAS 3d Boy Who Died From Fall Due Cub Uniform Eleven-year-old Francis M. Thomas 3d, who died today from a fall off a scaffold, will get the Cub Scout uniform he wanted so much. Yesterday afternoon, young Francis, as boys will, was climbing on scaffolding that had been set up to paint a house in the 300 block East Cross street. He lost his footing and fell to the street. Shortly after midnight today, despite the efforts of doctors to save him, the boy died at South Baltimore General Hos pital. A little while later, the be reaved father, Francis M. Thomas, Jr., of the 1100 block Riverside avenue, called Patrolman Raymond Mackessey at his home. Patrolman Mackessey, of the Southwestern district, had been young Francis s cub pack leader. His son had wanted the Cub uniform, the father told the po- ceman. Could Patrolman Mac kessey get him one? The police officer said he could. Now it is certain that the lad will go to his last resting place fully attired in the uniform of a Cub Scout. Woman Shares Award Mrs. Lorraine Bertolini, 39, of the 1200 block Chain court, has shared a $1,090 damage award with her husband in a verdict from a Court of Common Pleas jury. Mrs. Bertolini was injured when she fell over bathroom fixtures trying to escape a stream of hot water that shot from a broken shower nozzle in a city-owned apartment. ' FAST! FAST! IELMRY!

Bernard L. Werner, city water .... k engineer, estimated the con- tract would run more than $3,000,000. The whole project la expected to cost $30,000,000. Open for bidding tomorrow will be a 6-mile stretch of con- duit, 8-feet in diameter, from ; the Montebello Filtration Plant " to Kenwood avenue in Balti-, more county. ' ;' Mr. Werner said practically . all of the rights-of-way have ' been acquired. Route Given The line will run south from Montebello through Herring Run ! Park, swinging east at Sinclair lane, then roughly parallel to electric transmission , lines to Kenwood avenue. From there, Mr. Werner said. the line eventually will follow the route of the proposed North-, east expressway to Robin Hood road in Harford county. From this point, it will cut cross country to the Susque hanna Power Company's canal , at Deer Creek, following the ' Canal to the river at Holloways Cove above Conowingo Dam. Deer Creek Station A pumping station will be built at Deer Creek, Mr. Werner said, containing three 500,000,-000-gallons-a-day pumps. Ultimately, five pumps of similar size will be installed. When the river Is tapped, the city will take up to 225,000,000 gallons a day, if necessary, until the year .2,000, Mr. Werner said. Added to its present water resources, Baltimore tnen will have a potential daily source' amounting to 468,000,000 gallons. This should care for the city's water needs "way beyond" the turn of the next century, Mr. , Werner said. L The Susquehanna Water Sup- piy rrojeci, wiucii is ueiug ii-nanced by the city, consists of six separate contracts, one of which already has been awarded.
