County j will be polled to determine local interest in the construction of a one million dollar, 100-room hotel here. George W. Velenovsky. president of the Annapolis and Anne Arunciel County Chamber of Commerce, appointed a five-man committee to conduct the poll at ? meeting last night in the Senate chamber of the State House. A list of about 75 citizens, who had been previously contacted on the hotel proposal, was turned over to the committee heaaed by Harry T. Krause, Annapolis businessman. Krause said he would assign each committee member a group of persons to contact. If there is a good response, he said, those contacted would be invited to a meeting to discuss the hotel plan and decide on future action. Myron Hocke-ibury, president of the Hockenbury system, who made a survey of the city's hotel needs at the chamber's request,, had recommended construction of the hotel earlier this month. ' Hockenbury said the building would' cost $730,000. An aditional $150,000 would have to be spent for furnishing and equipment, $75,000 for the site, and $50,000 for financing and other charges. Sales of common stock or other junior securities could raise $635,000 of the $1,055,000 total, Hockenbury said, and'the rest would be obtained through a mortgage.

Hockenbury warned that action on his proposal should "not be delayed too long." Another round of Inflation is likely when restrictions on building are relaxed, he said, and "we will look back to 1952 as a time when costs were relatively low." Society Lauded The Western Maryland Section of the American Chemical Society was recently commended for its successful celebration of the Diamond Jubilee of the American Chemical Society. Nearly 100 persons played an active part in the celebration by the society.

She sits on the edge of our bed In the dark and says, "Mother, do She has made, they say, an "identification" with us. not as kindly, understanding, parents to whom she is emotionally attached, but as fellow human beings whose standards make some sense. you remember saying that what you | Nobody has forced Ginny to this sudden recognition of her mother can't have with self-respect, you can never really enjoy?" She does not wait for an answer, but continues, half - absently as as a person who has had to formulate rules because like Ginny, she too has felt temptation, weakness though she were thinking out loud, land fear. Nobody knows exactly "That means If I have to give Up the first man I've really gone for because" I don't believe in necking on a first date, I have to let him go . . ." Into the darkness we say, "Darling, he may come back and if he doesn't . . ." She leans to kiss us, says briskly, "I know. I have to stand by whatever he does . . ." and goes to her room. Ginny has just given us one of parenthood's Pulitzer Prizes. She has incorporated a, rule in her parents' set of values into her own Bet. She is struggling to solve a problem by tills rule, not because we believe in it, not because she wants our praise, but because she thinks It is a good rule that will work out her problem. By putting this rule of ours into use for herself, the experts tell us when the rule stopped being just words to Ginny and were suddenly there in her mind like a rod and strong staff in her hand. Her trust of the rules was involved with the past—with the afternoon we went back with her to the little girl's house with the toy she had taken without asking; with the cool, still peace following feverish defense of a lie; with the sound of relief in a father's "Well, I've done it" the day he turned down a big fee frcm the client whose business looked shady. So it was there tonight when our child wanted to take what fine could not, enjoy with self-respect. She flew blind on our rule just as a flyer flies blind on the beam without knowing the man who manipulates it. Sometimes older children do not achieve this trust of the rules, but that our daughter has just passed | j ns i s t on trusting us, instead. That's one of the test points in her maturing independence. I Or»g Starts £»«nrirter« l! FORD T S DRUG STORES Cumberland - Frostburg DO YOUR BANKING WHERE PARKING IS NO PROBLEM!

Parking Location Sought Downtown A central downtown parking lot is being considered by the Better Businessmen's Association and the group voted at last night's meeting to investigate the matter and report at the next session Thursday at 8 p. m. in the City Hall. Such a location is available on a long-term lease basis, the group reported, adding that the committee will continue studying all of the possibilities of the proposal, including plans for financing it. Much of last night's meeting was devoted to plans for an active membership campaign. Twenty-three merchants have already joined the group which was formed several weeks ago to work together for the improvement of the business and industrial life of the community. Members also discussed the possibilities of obtaining a number of smaller lots which would alleviate parking problems for the immediate area in which they are located.
