News From Your Library Selected Readings For Boys And Girls THE STORY OF FLEES by Dorothy Shuttlesworth; illustrated by Barbara Wolff. Stories erf all kinds of flies can be found in this informative book: true flies and false flies; dangerous flies and helpful flies. Of all man's insect enemies none is more dangerous or has caused more harm than the fly we commonly call a mosquito (a Spanish word meaning "little fly"). Part of the food crisis must be blamed on the many flies that destroy plants and spoil tons of food each year, yet many feed on plants directly without harming them. They carry pollen that causes flowers to ripen into fruits and seeds; they eat harmful plant pests, and they are an important source of food for animals, particularly birds and fish. Gr. 5-7. KNITTING MADE EASY by Barbara Aytes. Step-by-step instructions accompany each group of basic stitches, and each chapter is followed by directions for simple items which the beginner may make using only the knowledge acquired from those few pages, and requiring no shaping or involved instructions. To test her theory, the author enlisted the aid of two friends; one a beginner, the other more advanced. Working only from the directions in this book, they became expert knitters without requesting assistance. Girls have been asking for "knitting instructions" for a long time- I'm sure that they will be happy to see this. Gr. 5 up. PIONEERS OF FLIGHT by Henry T. Wallhauser; illustrations by Jack Woodson. The author is a newspaperman with two fields of interest-aviation and music. His interest in aviation dates back to his young days when he built balsa wood models. Since earliest times men have been fascinated by the thought of flying. Balloons, dirigibles and gliders were the first vehicles to take men aloft, but it was not until the 20th century that the power-driven plane became a reality. After a brief history of pioneering experiments, Mr. Wallhauser gives us a view of the development of the flying machine and the men responsible for it. Once the way was shown by the Wright brothers, advancement was rapid. Gr. 6 up. ALVIN FERNALD, MAYOR FOR A DAY by Clifford B. Hicks; illustrated by BUlSokol.

The animals that march delightfully across the pages of this book show a way of drawing that is both easy to learn and sound enough to provide a good base for further study. The author promises that if you can draw the few simple shapes, letters and numbers shown on the opening pages, you can draw any of the animals in the book. Pm going to try! All ages.

For lst-6th graders. Dorothy H. Langley, Children's Librarian Frederick Is Reading THIS PERFECT DAY by Ira Levin GREAT LION OF GOD by Taylor Caldwell DELIVERANCE by James Dickey HEAT LIGHTNING by Hildegarde Dolson Closed Saturday All libraries in the Frederick County Public Library system will be closed on Saturday. May 30, to observe Memorial Day. Friday hours and Monday hours will not be changed. Commission Drafts Legislation Administrators of the Public Library Systems of the State of Maryland met May 21 in the Garrett County Library in Oakland to examine a draft of the Report of the Commission on the Public Library Laws. Miss Martha Reynolds represented the Frederick County Public Libraries at this meeting. Eight items of recommended legislation were examined, and all would affect Frederick County either directly or indirectly. The most popular proposal was a change in public library funding to require three dollars per capita support and to increase the share of this support paid by the State of Maryland. As the report states: "This r e c o m m e n d a t i o n is trusted to be sufficiently conservative in view of the evidence indicating a need for a $4 to $5 basic support program." Another proposal would require the enlargement of the Library Boards to "at least seven members." The C. Burr Artz Board has three appointed members, although there are seven or more trustees involved when this board meets, with delegates from the Community Library Boards of Brunswick, Emmitsburg awl Thurmont, as a "joint Board." Other proposed legislation concerns the Division of Library D e v e l o p m e n t and Services, State Resource Center, Regional Resource Centers, and rectification. Most of the discussion of t h e s e proposals concerned clarification. The majority of administrators present endorsed all the proposed legislation. Art On Display Early nineteenth century primitives from theprivate collection of Charles Wood, New Market, are on display at the C. Burr Artz Library. These small watercolors are representative of the untutored artists of America in its first few decades. This exhibit will be displayed through June. B 5 Friday.

Asked if they could sum up in one word the feeling they have about their coming high school graduation, almost 50 young people and women gave me the same answer: Freedom. I had expected a few to say "nostalgia" or "fun," or even "futility" or "worry." But they all said, without a qualm: "Freedom." _ The more I thought about their answers, the more T understood. They will be free of mothers who say, "When I was a girl," and free of fathers who tell stories about "how it was in Korea." They will be on their own. Free of babysitting for younger brothers and sisters, out of bondage when it comes to helping entertain an elderly aunt. Free of grandmothers who make remarks about long hair and eye shadow. No longer a slave to household rules. No longer chained to family foibles. Freedom is all those things. Freedom is also: Being able to see any motion picture you want to, if only you had the money for a ticket. Not listening to mother tell about her migraine, or telling her about your sore throat. Leaving your dirty underwear spread over the floor in the morning and having it there when you come back in the afternoon. Walking in and buying that new dress--and then discovering you have 26 cents to last until next payday. Having a toothache at 2 o'clock in the morning and realizing you'll have to find a dentist in the Yellow Pages. Not having a curfew any more and not having anybody to feel sorry for you when you don't need one. Staying up as long as you want and not wanting to stay up. Not having to ask permission to drive anywhere you please and not having anybody to call when your car breaks down on the highway. Being able to talk for hours on the telephone without being harassed. And deciding you will--just as soon as you save up the telephone installation charge. Running out of shampoo, toothpaste, razor blades, pencils, stamps, writing paper and not having anyone bugging you about borrowing theirs because theiis isn't there for you to borrow. Being on your own is: Never having mother yell, "You're going to be late!" Never having father remind you to lake youi watch Never having anybody tell you what time to come home. And never having anybody waiting up for you when you get there. Not even when you've lost your key.

Smith, Director of Elementary Education in Frederick County, presented an interesting report on the progress of the Family Life and Human Development Program at the May meeting of the Gamma Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma, honorary sorority for women educators. The speaker was introduced by Miss Frances Ahalt of the Personal Growth and Services committee, which planned the meeting, held last Friday at the home of Mrs. Marion 0. Moser, Ridge Road near Frederick. Mrs. Smith reviewed the development of the program from the time of the passage of the state by-law in 1967, which mandated this area as a required part of the curriculum, through the formation and current functioning of a Citizen's Advisory Committee. A family life and human development curriculum has been written and is now being studied by the Advisory Committee. The proposed program begins in the kindergarten and continues through grade twelve. It is conceptual in approach and is interwoven in the social studies, science, English and home economics curriculum. After the Advisory Committee reports to the Board of Education and the program is adopted, committees will be established at local school levels to review the program, decide upon the readiness of the community for it, and suggest methods for its implementation. At the present time, there are no family life and health education programs in the elementary schools of Frederick County. Some secondary schools have continued with approved programs. Mrs. Doris Remsberg, chapter president, conducted the meeting, which was attended Corner by 43 members. Reports of the recent state convention were given and several names of teachers were proposed for membership in Gamma Chapter by the membership committee, Mrs. Ruth Hauver, chairman. An impressive installation ceremony followed the business. Both the outgoing and the incoming officers participated. Officers installed for the coming biennium are Mrs. Dorothy T. Cavanee, president; Mrs. Virginia Doub Klos, first vice - president; Mrs. Doris Remsberg, second vice-president; Mrs. Alice D. DeLauter, recording secretary; Mrs. Anna G. Derr, corresponding secretary, Miss Beattie Stauffer, treasurer and Miss Katharine E. Dutrow, parliamentarian.
