Applications For Housin Units Studied Authority Starts To Call Seekers For Personal Interviews Preliminary applications for dwelling space in Cumberland's low rent housing project are being received in the office of the Cumberland Housing Authority, 42 Clark-Keating Building. The housing authority reported that 125 apartments will be available for local families having small incomes. The Income requirements are tabulated by Federal Housing Administration and will be received shortly, The rent to be charged is strictly on the basis of the size of the family and the amount of earnings. A number of persons have filed requests with the housing authority for these apartments and beginning today they will be called into the office for interviews. The low rent dwellings constructed by federal funds are for those with low incomes, those living in unsafe, unsanitary and crowded facilities, those evicted from homes and those unable to get any housing. Each of the 125 apartments at the Mapleside structures is furnished with an electric refrigerator and a gas range. There are 24 one-bedroom dwelling units; 56 two-bedroom units; 39 three-bedroom units and 6 four- bedroom units. The Martin Construction Company of Pittsburgh has a completion deadline of July on the $l,250,000-project. Stolen Whisky Transported Through City The seizure of a $85,000 cache of hi-jacked liquor in Glen Burnie yesterday ^revealed that the truck load of stolen whisky was seen In Cumberland about three weeks ago. Trooper First Class William F. Baker, criminal investigator at the LaVale Barracks, was assigned to the case a few days ago and took part in the apprehension of the men who stole the truck in York, Pa. The FBI and Maryland State Police disclosed- today they had charged a sixth person in the hijacking of an $85,000 interstate shipment of whisky. They identified him as John Luther Wolford, 21-year-old Navy veteran from near Hagerstown, Md., and said he had been charged with receiving stolen goods. The investigation "is continuing," they said. Wolford is the brother of two other defendants in the case. FBI agents and Maryland State Police combined with Pennsylvania authorities in making the arrests and recovering the whisky in Glen Burnie, Hagerstown, and Harris- Jurg, Pa., yesterday. A truckload of bottled-ln-bond whisky was stolen near York, Pa., last Jan. 25. About 510 cases were "To support whatever action is found in an out-of-the-way garage necessary to demonstrate that the United Nations can and will stop lommunist aggression.

City Competes In Pedestrian Safety Contest Cumberland will compete In the 1951 National Pedestrian Protection contest sponsored by the American Automobile Association. In 1950, the "Queen City" won first in Maryland for activities conducted on the behalf of pedestrians. Police Chief R. Emmett Flynn today said a contest report form, consisting 'of questions concerning accident reports, legislation and enforcement, engineering, organization, school safety and public information directed toward the pedestrian has been completed and mailed. Cumberland will be judged with other cities of like size and population throughout the country. Winners will be announced by a national board of judges. Along with State Police, Chief Flynn issued safe walking rules which he said were particularly applicable at this time of year. Advice include the "Wear White At Night" slogan, "cross only at intersections," 'walk on the left side of the road facing traffic" for rural areas, "obey traffic signals," "look both ways before crossing" and "keep from behind parked cars." "Observance of these safe walking rules," he said, "will insure us getting a good score in a safety con- State Budget Up For Senate Action Today Delegates Override Governor's Veto Of Police Fund Measure ANNAPOLIS — OT — Senators finally came to grips today with the reason for coming here February 6 the Governor's $177,000,000 record budget. While their aim—usually poor—is to cut it, they also hold card: which might up the ante severa million more the following year. It's up to them to decide if the Governor should be forced to dig up $2,000,000 for the State Police The House of Delegates voted 83-31 yesterday to override his veto of a bill to use general funds. He wants to continue taking special motor vehicle funds which otherwise are beyond his reach. The Senate also has in abeyance House approval to take the sales tax off gas, electricity and fuel. That would mean 53,500,000 less /or the Governor to meet appropriations. The Senate, on the other hand has put up to the House whether another $7,500,000 should go out to teachers. It has passed two bills to raise the state minimums $400 and cut from 16 to 12 years the time in which they get automatic raises for experience. These pending decisions are among the most momentous as the General Assembly goes into the last seven legal days of the 30-day session. They and others such 'as limiting future short sessions to consideration of the budget alone, changing the type of budget, and another possible veto may put off earlier adjournment visualized by legislative leaders. University Bill Pondered Gov. McKeldin still hasn't decided whether he will approve a bill giving the University of Maryland more self-rule. He has until Tuesday to make up his mind. He vetoed a similar one last year. Legislative leaders are talking about winding up Monday night. Their unofficial timetable calls for the Senate Finance Committee to bring out the budget bill Saturday and have it passed. The House then would pass it Monday night and both chambers clean up other business at the same time. Budget Cut Starts The finance committee didn't start trying to actually cut the budget until late last night. It went to work behind closed doors, so its progress, if any, remained secret. It was reported they had found $55,000 to trim, but they're striving for at Church Plans For Unveiling A picture of the Sea of Galilee and the River Jordan by J. Alfred Fullerton, will be unveiled today at the First Brethren Church during ceremonies at 7:30 p. m, Fullerton has gained a national reputation for his paintings of Holy Land Scenes. - Pictures of some of ils 500 religious frescoes have appeared in Life magazine in recent months.

While some senators expressed hope for cutting somewhere, others are of the opinion they may find the,task too monumental. This latter group feels they will have to resort to last year's method, simply pass the budget as is and ask the Governor to cut a million somewhere. Gov. McKeldin reacted by ;elling every department to spend two per cent less than appropriated. The finance committee went at ihe budget with the promise of Chairman Goldstein (D-Calvert) 'We have our pencils sharpened." The House thinks the legislature .wo years hence should work the whole 30 days on the budget. It passed last night a bill to that effect. That question, too, now .is up to the Senate. Judges Pension Killed The Senate yesterday did refuse >y a 14-12 vote to go along with a 50 per cent increase in pensions for circuit and appelate Judges. It sent ;o the Governor other measures so state's attorneys and grand juries can ask State Police help and relieve radio stations of libel responsibility 'or statements by political candidates. The House passed three bills aim revenue agents in the comptroller's office power to enforce the liquor aws, confiscate stills and vehicles aws, connscate stills ana vehicles, *•" and fine bootleggers up to $10,000 Frostburg. and imprison them up to five years. .^ r . s - Van Newki rk and Mrs. Briggs The House also called on the Gov ernor study KOREAN VET RETURNS BLOOD—Staff Sgt. William K. Thacher, 25, of Chase City, Va., who was visiting friends here, is shown above as Dr. Harry M. Rhoads of the Red Cross mobile blood bank tests his blood pressure before the Korean veteran gave blood Tuesday afternoon. Sigt. Thacher said he was returning some of the blood which the Red Cross sup-plied him after he was liberated from the Red* in North Korea. Former Red Prisoner Returns Israel Lawyer Blood To Red Cross Program To Speak Here At Bond Rally There's no one who has a better grasp of the vital need for blood for the armed forces than the GIs who fought the Reds in the tortuous terrain of that Asiatic country. Take the experience of Staff Sgt. William K. Thacher, 25, of Chase City, Va., who is visiting Water Well To Be Drilled At Purgitsville The water well being drilled for the Purgitsville, W. Va., school in which some gas was found will be abandoned and another drilled about 135 feet away, according to A. Clinton Loy, superintendent of schools for Hampshire County. C. E. Bright, senior state sanitarian, selected the site following a conference with geologists who came to Purgitsville from the State Department of Geology in Morgantown. After examining the formation through which the well had been drilled, the men said a sufficient supply of water could not be found by drilling deeper; that the water strata could be discovered In another location at a depth of from 100 to 150 feet. Apparently the geologists expressed no opinion about the gas discovered in the well. The gas pressure at the bottom of the well was reported to be sufficient to cause the water to bubble or foam as though it had soap in it. It could not be ascertained whether the formation of the earth where the gas developed was of sand such as might be expected to produce gas or whether It was shale or ordinary rock. The character of the formation probably would determine whether it was a ;as deposit or whether it was gas ;hat may have seeped through the rocks from distant gas fields. It is understood an investigation will be continued.

Sgt. Thacher, who is stationed at Rome Air Force Base in New York, is on a 30-day furlough. He was in Korea for 13 months and was a prisoner of the Reds for eight months before being liberated by a Marine Corps outfit. On February 15, 1951 along with 13 other men he was guarding a supply dump after his unit had been assigned to another post. Of the 14 men captured by the Reds only four were left when the Marines freed the camp. Sgt. Thacher said during his imprisonment the Americans were beaten practically every day in an effort to obtain information. They were on short rations, slept on burlap bags, had no shelter, no first aid, and they were stripped of their identification bracelets, watches, and anything else of value, the Virginian related. Liberated with Sgt. Thacher was Master Sgt. Bobby Wilde, of Brooklyn. N. Y., uncle of Miss Wilde, They were freed on December 22, 1951 and spent Christmas Day in Letterman General Hospital in California, after being flown back to this country. Due to weakened condition and illness the Red Cross furnished Sgt. Thacher with two pints of blood. The young soldier said he wanted to give a pint back in view of the desperate need for blood for the armed forces. UM Dairyman To Visit Here J. R.
