Administration has asked for authority :o acquire warehouse storage space at Paw Paw, W. Va., and two other ;owns for storing supplies and equipment for use in the event of an enemy attack. The office of Rep. Harley O. Staggers in Washington said it did not know if the space sought was formerly used by the Keystone Tanning and Glue Division of the U. S. Leather Company but it is presumed t would be the tannery property. Operations at the tannery recently ceased and much of the machinery has been dismantled and moved away. . It was explained by the spokesman in Rep. Staggers' office it is not believed buildings would be remodeled or extended but that the space would be used merely for storage. Acting Civil Defense Administrator J. J. Wadsworth told Congress n a letter the space is needed at s aw Paw, SIkeston, Mo. and Dow- ingtown, Pa. "for use in conjunction with the reserve supply program of ;he administration." "We are procuring items of supply and equipment to be held available for civil defense purposes in ;he event of enemy attack and storing them in warehouses at locations where they will be readily available to the support of one or more critical target areas." Wadsworth said the administra- ;ion anticipates acquisition of warehouses with a total floor space of about one million square feet "so ocatcd as to provide maximum coverage to the target areas throughout the country." So far, he said, six storage spaces lave been leased, totalling about 300,000 square feet. ^ ' I Obituary BONNER—Mrs. Sarah C., 77, Hendrlcks, W. Va. CARMAN—Charles P., 75, Berke- ey Springs, W. Va.

Permit Asked For Housing Unit Project An application for a building permit for the proposed $253,650 Negro low rent housing project on Frederick Street, was filed yesterday by the Cumberland 'Housing Authority with the city engineer's Office. William H. Marean, acting city engineer, referred the application to the Board of Zoning Appeals in compliance with the city zoning ordinance. James B. Raines, executive secretary of the Housing Authority of Cumberland, yesterday supplied details of the low rent project in connection with his application for a building permit. The 30 multiple dwelling units included in the project will be built on the northwesterly side of Frederick Street and adjacent to the Carver High School playground. The housing authority has options on the land, which Is valued at $47,500. S. Russ Minter, local architect who designed the Mapleside housing project, has prepared plans for the Frederick Street units. The building will be three stories high, 29 feet wide and 205 feet long and will have brick-faced concrete block walls with a built-up roof. The building permit fee will be vaived for the project under an agreement with the Mayor and City Council. The Negro housing project will be located In a business -zoning district. The site of the project was ap- Votes Sought For Teacher Pay Increase Senate Will Ballot Again Today In Effort To Override Bill Veto ANNAPOLIS— (IP)— Advocates of more state money for school teachers struggled desperately today to bolster their forces for a decisive test of strength with Gov. McKeldin. Senators and supporters from outside maneuvered last night and this morning for votes by which to blow apart McKeldin's veto of a state-paid increase in teacher minimums. The outcome hinged on a Senate vote scheduled for this afternoon. At issue is the Governor's veto of a 1951 act that would have added $300 to the teacher salary brackets requiring state support. Opposes Tax Increase McKeldin rejected it because he thought the counties should shoulder the burden of higher salaries. All counties now allow more than the state-wide scale. The Govrnor also opposed a 25 per cent increase in the corporation tax to finance for the pay raises. Thirteen senators, two more than necessary, voted last week to uphold McKeldin. The dissenting majority of 16 was insufficient to put the salary measure across. But it possessed enough strength to call up the question again. Today's balloting will seal the verdict. School system partisans, working against McKeldin. concentrated their climactic drive on three senators who originally voted to sustain the veto. They cornered Sen. Fletcher (R- Prince George's), a 5th-District Congressional candidate); Bailey (R-St; Mary's) and Dippel (D-Balto 3rd). Philip Labor In Picture H. Dorsey Jr., former people's counsel to the Public Service Commission and a Democratic candidate for Congress in the 5th, was active at the State House. He's from Bailey's home county. Also arguing, vigorously were officers of the state CIO, Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen and A ss o c 1 a t i o n of International Machinists. Word circulated that Sen. Melni- cove (D-Balto 4th) was ready to transfer his vote to the Governor. He was one of the 16 who wanted to override the veto before. Should he switch the veto would be sustained unless three were persuaded to turn about. Sen. Hyde (R-Montgomery) made it plain he was not susceptible. He denied reports he had been coralled by McKeldin at the last minute. "I had determined to support the veto at least two days before the first vote," Hyde declared. He said some members of the Montgomery County Council and voter groups, frequently a source of hostility to the veto, had complimented him for siding with McKeldin. a former athletic star at Fort Hill I proved unanimously by the housing High and now a freshman student at Gettysburg College, and a daughter, Barbara, a student at Fort Hill.

Club Hears Need Talk On Nurses Miss Gladys Brooks, supervisor of the Memorial Hospital School of Nursing, spoke on scholarships to student nurses at a meeting of the Soroptimist Club of Cumberland yesterday in Sheehe's Restaurant. She pointed out the need for or- jganizations to furnish scholarships Community Group Names Officers and financial aid to girls who would not have the opportunity to become nurses because of the money needed. Miss Brooks also added that New Diesels Co In Service Nine new dlesel-electric road freight units were delivered to the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad and put into service during February, according to W. C. Baker, vice president of operation and maintenance. Of 1,600 h.p. each, the units were built by the American Locomotive Company and have started operation In main line freight service between Philadelphia and Willard, Ohio. Weighing approximately 120 tons each and measuring 53 feet In length, these units will operate up to a maximum of 65 miles an Iiour. They are equipped with the new type air-chime whistles which closely simulate the blast of the old- time steam locomotive whistle. The nine units cost approximately $1,500,000 and they have replaced nine steam-type locomotives. Democratic Groups Reported Leaning Toward Rep. Sasscer The Democratic state central committees of the five Western Maryland counties making up. the Sixth Congressional District are "leaning toward Rep. Lansdale G. Sasscer" in the race for the Democratic U. S. Senate nomi- '• nation, according to The Associated Condemnation Not Planned For Building Owners Have Year To Apply For Remodeling Permit; Plans Uncertain Acting City Engineer William H. Marean today reported there is "apparently no basis for condemnation based on damage done" to the three-story Baltimore Street building gutted by fire February 4. "Owners (James Clark estate) have a year In which to apply for remodeling under the building code," he said. The second and third floors of the structure, occupied by the Potomac Edison Company and Maurice's Department Store, were burned out in the blaze which threatened an entire block. PE workers began moving equip- meVt from "the ground floor .of the razed building shortly after the fire was brought Under control. This morning, they removed light fixtures and other, furnishings but no announcement was made as to future plans. Henry W. Price, district manager of the PE Company, was "out of town" today and could not be reached for a statement. PE is operating two doors away hi the vacated Lane's women's store. Maurice's has moved to 144 Union Street. Following an investigation, fire officials reported an overheated hot air duct probably caused the blaze which also resulted hi damage to the adjoining Shinnamon's Shoe Store and Patrick's Piano Studio. An accurate damage estimate is pending. Unofficially, it has been set at $200,000. Assessed valuation of the gutted building and property totals $68,000, but replacement cost is expected to be much higher. Trucker Freed On$2,OOOBond A 29-year-old Cumberland trucker, Clark Richard Horning, RD 1, has been released under $2,000 bond for a hearing in the death of a child at Bethlehem, Pa., last Wednesday. Police Capt, Robert Gross stated this morning that no date has been set for Homing's hearing. An Inquest was not necessary, he said. Horning faces a technical charge of involuntary manslaughter. The tractor-trailer he was driving struck and fatally hurt Mary Beth Lechler, five-year-old daughter of Rev. and Mrs. L. Raymond Lechler, Bethlehem. Witnesses told authorities the girl ran in front of the truck as she tried to cross a road while enroute ;o kindergarten. Horning is a member of Cumberland Local 453, Teamsters Union (AFL). Recently he was employed by the Wilson Freight Forwarding Company which has a terminal in Everett, Pa. The company posted bond for his release. Press. Sasscer is being opposed by George P. Mahohey, national committeeman for Maryland. Mahoney earlier had urged "harmony" in the selection of candidates for Congress in the state's seven districts so that the party would not suffer from primary fights. Mahoney Undaunted The news service states that report from sources close to the groups said representatives of the committees, to a recent off-the- record meeting, voiced their irritation at Mahoney's disrupting the "harmony" in the party's senatorial primary and generally agreed to support Sasscer. Although Sasscer has the reported backing of at least most of the area's party organizations, Mahoney apparently is counting on his grassroots method of winning sufficient votes, The Associated Press said. This system of personal contact on personal Issues proved effective two years ago, when Mahoney all but tore up party organization hi the state in losing the Democratic gubernatorial nomination to former Governor Lane, explained the news service. Mahoney picked up his cue of two years ago today in saying, "I feel that I have an obligation to the hundreds of thousands of Maryland voters who, by supporting me in my last campaign, proved that they are tired of machine politics and boss rule." McKeldin For Beall Governor McKeldin, titular head of the Republican party in the state, has thrown his backing publicly to Rep. J. Glenn Beall of Frostburg. He made the indorsement last Friday at a Lincoln Day dinner here. He referred to Beall as the "next United States senator," adding he was sure everyone in the room would work tirelessly to "put him there." Backers of H. Grady Gore, who is opposing Beall, decried McKeldin's indorsement of Beall. John H. McFaul, manager of Gore's Baltimore headquarters, declared It was "contrary to good government for a person in high office, whoever he may be, to assume the role of dictator in the handpicklng of candidates for elective office. "Free and open primaries, unhampered by political pressure, are the best guarantee for the selection of the strongest candidate to truly represent the people," he added. "Who represents the Republican organization? We say it Is the men and women, the workers and voters of the party, that are the organization. Anyone who believes that he can deliver their votes lock, stock and barrel is highly underestimating the intelligence of these people." The major electrical parts on the thought to ha iad freight units delivered to the was moving to road B & O are supplied by the General- Electric Company. Man Injured In Fall From Truck KEYSER, W.

Cutting Taxes Considered By •^ Assembly Body Income And Sales Proposals Studied By Finance Committee ANNAPOLIS— (IP)— Two tax-cutting ideas were to get their first legislative going over today in the Maryland General Assembly. Would you like to have a 15 per cent reduction in the taxes you will have to pay this year on your 1951 income? Would you rather get out of paying any sales tax at all, after July 1, on the gas, electricity, coal, wood and fuel oil you use to cook your food, heat your water, and light and warm your home" Proponents of the latter idea came forward today with still another? Why not both? Finance Group To Meet Then- first maneuvering was planned for today's session of the senate finance committee. • The committee took up for hearing the proposal for a 15 per cent reduction in personal income taxes which fall due April 15 on 1951 earnings. This proposal originated almost simuttanequsly a few weeks ago with Democratic leaders on one hand and the Republican Governor on the other. It was touched off by a realization that tax revenues had been so great in the last half of 1951 and promised to continue coming in .so fast in the first half of 1952 that the state would have a. surplus of almost 12 million dollars by the state's budget year on June 30. Gov. McKeldin and J. Millard Tawes, the Democratic party leader who also is state comptroller, agreed on, this solution of the surplus- tax cut situation: Cancel out about three million of the expected surplus by the 15 per cent reduction in the tax on 1951 incomes. Apply the rest of the surplus against the budget for the 1953 fiscal year, which starts July 1, thereby meeting the increased expenses which face the state without having to Increase taxes this year. Tawes To Give Views Tawes was due before the senate finance committee his arguments for today to adopting give this plan. Five Democratic senators came up, meantime, with the other idea. They are Senators Barton, Preston and Dippel, all from Baltimore, Sybert from Howard" County, and Malkus from Dorchester. They Introduced a bill which would cancel the 2 per cent sales tax on utilities and fuels for home use after July 1. Delegate Mary Nock, a Democrat who represents Wlcomico County, put a similar bill in the Houso hopper. The senators quickly picked up some support among their colleagues for the sales tax cancellation, which would reduce state income by an estimated 3'^ million dollars. Discuss Possibilities Some of them, plus a convert or two, got together for a chinning session before the finance committee hearing on the income tax reduction and mulled over these arguments: 1. What with exemptions for dependents, most families in lower Income brackets do not pay much Income tax. have to It Is a Attendance Slated At Graham Service Rev. Sydney Aldrlch, director of the Tri-State Youth for Christ announced that persons wishing to attend the Billy Graham .service Saturday at the National Guard Armory, Washington, will leave by bus from the Blue Ridge terminal at 7:30 a. m. that day. The trip will include lunch and dinner at Washington Bible Institute and a sightseeing tour of Washington, A delegation of 79 persons from the Tri-State Youth for Christ attended a similar service two weeks ago. Reservations have been made at the Army for 110 persons. Those interested may contact Mr. strategy to substitute it for the in- relatively small part of their living expenses. A 15 per cent reduction in this tax would not mean much to them in dollars and cents. Higher income people would reap the most benefit. 2. Gas and electric bills and fuel bills are a big Item, however, for low-Income families. Cutting out the 2 per cent sales tax on them would be of real benefit. 3. Even those who favored the sales tax when it first was enacted in 1947 didn't like the idea of putting it on the necessities of life. Those who were reluctant but went along on the sales tax idea Itself swore they would whittle It down, particularly on necessities, at the earliest opportunity. 4. The income tax reduction applies only to one year. The cancellation of sales taxes nn utilities inc 1 fuels would be permanent—as permanent as anything in state finances can be. The senate conferees decided they had enough votes lined up right now to pet their sales tax cancellation thrnueh the senate. Plan Strategy At first, they started laying a Aldrich at Eckhart. The group will return following the service. come tax reduction. (Continued on Page 19) Monday at the Bolden Funeral Home, Oakland. Cpl.
