EIGHT EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD., FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 29, 1952 Phone 4600 for a WANT AD Taker Phoebus To Push Fight To Mark State's Cars ANNAPOLIS—A struggle to dls-1 transportation expense can be seen inter his project for emblazoning all state-owned cars with an "O,ffi- clal Use" sign has been promised today by State Senator Harry T. at a "glance, the cars most economically operated can be spotted, checks can be made when a car's cost of operation passes the point- Phoebus, (R-Somerset). | where it should be traded and poor If a polite request doesn't get it,[gasoline and oil mileage can be Senator Phoebus said, he Is going to readily detected. start a fight I Tne cheapest cost per mile of the jper mile was reported by the State The Senator believes, despite a| Audltor( Iour cents reassuring report from Nathan L.| . Smith, director of public improvements, that many state cars are used by jobholders in thetr private! pursuits. His bill Is elmed to stamp out such practices by requiring that the cars be prominently stamped— "Property of the State of Maryland: For Official Use Only." To Trap i Gold Smugglers NEW DELHI—</P)—If you hear a sharp whistle or a loud squeak In reply to Mr. Smith's contention that signs like that would open state employes to heckling by taxpayers. Senator Phoebus snapped that is just what he wants. "If Mr. Smith doesn't like it," the Senator said, "let him buy his own car Instead of riding around in a big state car. He's making more money now than he ever made in his life before." Senator Phoebus, who has been while passing through Indian customs barriers some day, don't be alarmed—unless you are a gold smuggler. The Government's national physical laboratory, called in to help curb the illegal flow of gold into and out of India, came up with these suggestions: 1. A table which would whistle if baggage containing gold or other high conductivity metal is passed over it. 2. A comfortable chair in which battling James G. Rennie, the state I visitors could be seated while filling budget director, added that goes for out their entrance or exit forms. This chair would have a built-in squeak which sounds if its occupant is carrying a concealed'shipment of gold. Neither gold detector, officials said, has yet been perfected to the stage where it won't whistle or squeak at the gold fillings in a visitor's teeth. him, too. If the committee fails to heed his request to bring the bill to the Senate floor, the senator said, he will round up two other senators for the necessary three to petition It out of committee hands. The state is furnishing automobiles, operated at state expense, to 604 employes, according to a report by Smith to Governor McKeldin on the use of state-owned automobiles. Mr. Smith made his study following complaints that many of these cars are kept at home and used for private purposes. His report was made public after Senator Phoebus ' had Introduced a bill in the legislature to require the marking of all state cars to indicate they are for "official use only." Eight state agencies, Mr. Smith told the Governor, require no reporting of what their cars are used for or where they go. These agencies and the number .of cars they operate are Eastern 'shore State Hospital, five; Game and Inland Fish Department, 13; Department of Correction, 16; Military Department, seven; Tidewater Fisheries Department, eight; Towson State Teachers College, five; Training School for Boys, nine, and the University of Maryland, nine. The university has nine other cars on which itineraries are kept. Mr. Smith did not survey 68 cars belonging to agencies which operate six or less of the state's 998 passenger vehicles. He did not survey 244 State Police cars. Of the remaining 686, he found that 82 cars are in pools for the use "-of all department employes, and 604 are individually assigned cars, most of which are taken home at night and fueled at state expease. Most of these cars are unmarked. Only one state agency, the University of Maryland, includes depreciation in its cost-per-mile figures and therefore it has the highest cost per mile, 7.2 cents. Twelve of the 23 agencies surveyed have no idea what their cars cost per mile of operation. Cost records are obligatory in 30 of the 41 states •which replied to a Maryland questionnaire. Among the reasons for cost records cited in the report are that the Travel Tickets A passport is a document Issued by the government of a country to its citizens permitted unmolested travel abroad; a visa is an endorsement made on a passport by the' government of a foreign country, denoting that it has been examined, and that the bearer may enter the country. The Azores are 800 to 1,200 miles west of Portugal.
