Local Comics Member Associated Press Classified THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 1952 The Newspaper For The Home Second Section Teacher Wage Bill Battle Lines Drawn Kimble Claims Enough Voteg To Override Veto By Governor ANNAPOLIS — ffi— A year-old struggle over who shall finance | teacher pay raises headed lor a< dramatic showdown in the State] House today. The General Assembly drew final battle lines for a vote on Gov. Mc- Keldln's veto of a $300 increase to be paid from state funds. McKeldin thinks that if there are to be Increases, the counties should pay them. The pay bill was one of 61 vetoed j measures facing the General Assembly in the session that began yesterday. The significance of the pay bill- heightened by political concern with this year's election—left the governor's huge spending program in the •hadows. McKeldin yesterday proposed a 177-million-dollar budge', and a $22^75,000 bond bill for state construction"—or almost 200 million in all. Struggle In Senate Attention focused on the Senate, •where both sides struggled for sup- port'from the few-still undecided. It was freely predicted that school system partisans in the House •would muster the 74 votes which constitute the three-fifths majority necessary to overcome a veto. In the Senate, 12 of the 29 members may sustain a veto. The Senate picture was enlivened by a split among the Republicans on whom McKeldin banks most •trongly for support. Minority Leader Klrable (R-A1- legany), ordinarily an administration stalwart, was a leader in the movement to override. He claimed 20 votes, two more than necessary. Sen. Hofl (R-Carroll) countered with an attempt to line up all other GI TRAINEES BUILD MODEL HOUSE—As part of their carpentry training course at the Allegany Trades School in the Merchandise Mart on South Mechanic Street the two former GIs pictured above constructsd a scale model of a dwelling. 'At left is Glen Devine, of Fairgo, and on the right is Joseph Sullivan, 449 Henderson Avenue. The dwelling was built on a scale of one-half inch to a foot. The house is built with joists, sheathing, rafters and all component parts used in constructing a -full-size dwelling'. David Ogilvie is the instructor. The model houses wiii be turned over later to .public schools for use in manual training classes, Ogilvie said. Republicans behind the governor. There are 11 Republicans in the Senate. Democrats divided on the measure last year, and none saw the possibility of a solid party front this time. McKeldin turned down the teacher bill on two grounds: It involved a 25 per cent boost in the state's 4 per cent corporation income tax and it handed the state a responsibility that he thought belonged to Baltimore and the counties. University Spotlighted Two other vetoes were spotlighted. One refused Annapolis a five-million-dollar state office building. McKeldin allowed two millions for a new structure in the capital In his new bond bill. The other denied increased "home rule' 'to the University of Maryland. A compromise university measure, which bore the approving stamp of President H. C. (Curley) Byrd, was Introduced by the Legislative Council yesterday. With this on top, there was a strong chance the. old veto would be upheld. Differ On Budget Legislators differed by party on the budget McKeldin hopes to get through this 30-day session. Senate Majority Leader Goldstein (D-Calvert) contended that "'the largest budget Maryland has ever had" belied the governor's campaign speeches. Kimble — Goldstein's minority counterpart—labeled it "as economical a budget as it is possible to submit under present-day conditions." Goldstein heads the Senate Finance Committee, which like the House Ways and Means Committee, elated early consideration of the mammoth bill. Surplus Used McKeldin applied some eight millions of an anticipated treasury surplus of $11,854,212 to make up the difference between the appropriations and the money the state expects to take in. Another three millions will be available to reduce taxes. There was unanimity for tax relief, but con flict on the method. McKeldin advocates a Legislative Council proposal to cut 1951 income taxes by 15 per cent. A group of half a dozen senators laid plans for promoting, instead, removal of the sales tax from utility bills. These vould Include gas, electricity, fuel oil and coal. One of the senators, who declined use of his name, contended the income tax cut would benefit the rich (Continued on Page 3^3) Getty To Head Bar Drive On Citizenship Plan Explained By William C. Walsh, Who Leads State Program * Gorman E. Getty, of Lonaconing, has been named general chairman of a committee of Allegany county attorneys who will conduct a campaign this mouth "to make everyone conscious and proud cf iiseir American citizenship," according to William C. Walsh, who is general chairman of the program for Maryland. The campaign was decided upon by the Maryland Bar Association in conjunction with the American Bar Association and patriotic groups. Getty, who is attorney to the Allegany County Board of Commissioners, is a veteran of World War II and has a law office hi Cumberland. He named the following group to work with ihim-on the program: James Alfred Avirett, William R. Carscaden, Thomas N. Berry, David Kauffman, Thomas B. Finan and Earl E. Manges, all local attorneys. The campaign will reach a peak between the birthdays of Lincoln and Washington, during which period members of the County Bar Association and various civic leaders will speak on American citizenship in general and the rights and privileges enjoyed under the democratic form of government. In all probability speakers will be provided for high schools in the county to emphasize to the student bodies the importance of a thorough knowledge of the U. S. Constitution, U. S. history and the use of the American flag in schools. The drive is in no sense political, Walsh said. "The aim is to make all of "us proud of our citizenship and at the same 'time give us a working knowledge of what that citizenship means," he added. Carpentry Trainees Display Skill In Model House Work By GENE BROWN Evening Tunes Staff Writer Former servicemen taking the course in carpentry under the GI Bill of Rights at the' Allegany Trades School in the Merchandise Mart building on South Mechanic Street have become very adept at the trade, according to David Ogilvie, instructor of the daytime class. Eligible Voters Register Now! 4 Only four days remain to register to be eligible for the primary and general elections in March. The registration office located in the basement of City Hall will be open tomorrow, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9 a. m. to 5 p. m. to receive new registrants or those who wish to change place of a residence, name because of marriage, etc. City Clerk Wallace G. Ullery reported 424 have registered since the office opened. Robey Named Netv Secretary Of Moose Lodge James M. Robey of Winifred Road will be installed tonight by Cumberland Lodge 271, Loyal Order of Moose, as secretary. He succeeds Ernest B. Treat, who held the post about 10 years. The new secretary is a deputy register Lb of wills for Allegany County and is a veteran of World War II with several years Navy service. He recently returned after being recalled to service due to the outbreak of the Korean War. Treat decided to give up the position due to the press of duties inj his capacity as tax collector for Allegany County. Treat is also a veteran of World War II. Negro Woman Arrested In Abortion Case A 46-year-old Negro woman is being held in Allegany County Jail for a preliminary hearing on charges of performing an abortion on a white high school girl at her home here. The State's Attorney's office said Lillian Detrlck, of Pittsburgh, was arrested yesterday afternoon when she alighted from a train at Queen City Station. Authorities said they had received information that the abortion was performed November 16 on the girl, described as under 18 years of age. The prisoner reportedly came to Cumberland from Pittsburgh via train on that date and, immediately after performing the operation, left on another train for Washington or Pittsburgh. Investigation disclosed the woman would arrive here yesterday shortly after 1 p. m. on B & O Train 8. A warrant for her arrest was issued and County Investigator Edwin R. Lilya and Deputy Sheriff Edgar M. Lewis went to the station. The surprised wonjan was taken into custody after she stepped from thc train and started to walk toward the business district. State's Attorney Paul M. Fletcher said she later signed a statement admitting her participation in the abortion. It was indicated that no charges will be filed against thc The course lasts about two years and recently the 20 trainees began building scale model residences as part of their work. The residences are built on scales one, one and one-half and two inches to the foot, depending on the type dwelling being studied. Start From Ground Each of the scale model homes, and about 10 or 12 have been built so far, are done according to plans and blueprints. The ' homes are built from the foundation up and included the framework, sheathing and window sash and door framing. Stairways, joists, rafters and all the individual parts of a residence are done to scale. The step by step construction of the scale models aids the GI trainees become adept at the carpentry trade, Ogilvie pointed out. The instructor, who' was a carpenter foreman for many years with the George F. Hazelwood Company, said the classroom work and shop training given the former servicemen is proving a much better way to train apprentice carpenters than the oldtime method of working on a job and gradually learning the trade. F. Patrick AHender. business agent of the AFL Carpenters Union here, has been able to place from 20 to 30 of the young men who have completed the course, according to Ogilvie. Work On Local Jobs These men are working on construction work at the Allegany Ballistics Laboratory, West Virginia Pulp and Paper Company at Luke (Continued on Page 23) Milder Mercury Due Tomorrow The weather man promises tomorrow will be cloudy and milder temperatures will prevail.

Grady Gore, Republican senatorial candidate, today protested to the Republican National Committee against any "outside influence" in the Maryland primary race. The action came after an announcement Tuesday that three congressmen from outside the state were speaking at Republican rallies in Western Maryland. The three were procured for Lincoln Day dinners by Rep. J. Glenn Bcall of the Sixth (Western Maryland) District, also a candidate for the nomination to the Senate. When informed of the protest, Beall said it had been the custom for years for him to get qualified speakers from Congress "at the request of the county central committees." "They are not coming in," Beall added, "to speak on my behalf. They are coming in to speak as Republicans to Republicans." Rep. Martin (R-Ma*ss) is slated to speak in Frederick, Rep. Hill (R- Colo) in Hagerstown, and Rep. Cunningham (R-Iowa) in Prince Georges County within the next week. John H. McFaul, Jr., president of the Maryland Federation of Republicans, wired National Chairman Guy Gabrielson that "free and open primaries, unhampered by outside influences, are the best guarantee for good government and honest selection of candidates." A reminder of President Roosevelt's "attempt to purge former Senator Tydings" was mentioned by David A. Kalley, executive secretary of the Republican activities committee of Maryland. He told Gabrielson that "outside influence could be disastrous to the Republican party in Maryland."
