Meeting at a special session of the Eastern Shore Commissioners Association designed to present a common front for legislative demands, the commissioners found they were equally divided on the question of return of county roads maintenance to local jurisdiction, and undecided on how to finance relief. HIIW They Voleil Commissioners from Cecil, Queen Anne's , Talbot and Caroline voted in favor of securing jurisdiction of roads from the State. Kent, Somerset, Worcester and Wicomico voted against return. Dorchester County Commissioners declined to commit themselves but asked time to' study the cost of "setting up machinery in the county to maintain and operate a road^ department." More than fifty commissioners, many of them newly elected, their attorneys and legislators crowded the courtroom for the all-day session over which presided Charles R. Parker, of Salisbury, the president. They voted to appoint a committee from each county to work with the Eastern Shore legislators in obtaining an adequate relief, program.' Relief Problem The concensus on relief was sought from the court stenographer after several county representatives had spoken. "I can't say that anything has been decided," she told John A. Baker, founder of the association. Failure of State relief taxes to provide adequate revenue caused the State to halt distribution of funds to the counties for direct relief last summer, thereby throwing the full burden of caring for unemployables onto the counties. Bitter protests against this arrangement were voiced by several speakers but none offered a solution. State Senator Dudley Roc said he thought the unemploment tax unsound and reported several business firms had cither disbanded or changed ownership to avoid payment. Before adjournment the association members were invited to Elkton for a meeting April 17. RIDGELY Mr. and Mrs. Frank Flounders visited their daughter, Mrs. William Ricck, of Preston, on Sunday.
