The exhibit will be held on Sunday, June 14, from 12 noon to 6 nun. at Baker Memorial Park. (The rain date will be Sunday June 21, also from noon to Refreshments will be sold and Ambulance Association Holds Meet By MARGOT MOR Staff Writer GRACEHAM -- If you had a heart attack, broke a leg, or were about to deliver a baby most likely some unit of th Frederick County Ambulance Rescue Association would speed you swiftly to the nearest hospital. These unsung heroes of many citizens who give generously of their time and energies are legion. Representatives of 11 volunteer ambulance and rescue units of Frederick County held a ·monthly meeting at Graceham Fire Hall last night. ~ President Lenwood Moss stressed the necessity of conforming with requirements to qualify for a $35,000 grant authorized by the Highway Safely Act of 1966. It was specifically stated that, in order to speed emergency assistance and eliminate excess mileage, a cut-off for ambulance and rescue vehicles be provided at the Monocacy River Bridge at the Junction of U. S. 70-S .and U. S. 15, before the Ur- banaexit. · Of 11 units in excess of 250 men in the county only Frederick has a paid unit, composed of six men. Moss complained that the county commissioners are apparently indifferent to the needs of the ambulance and rescue association, while they are particularly generous to the volunteer fire departments, whose role is no more important. GS Hold Fun Day _ Senior Girl Scouting is three years of career exploration, service to community and younger scouts, and opportunities for travel both here and overseas for those girls who are willing to work toward a goal. Opportunities are many and varied--from Juliette Low World Friendship session in maijy parts of the world--to participation in national events--to troop camping (the troop has spent a week each -of the past two summers at Ocean City)-to special opportunities for a part of the troop. Six Senior girls from Troop 24, Frederick, have been meeting regularly for the past several months making plans for a trip to the new National Center West for a week of primitive camping in August. Many alternatives have been considered by the Seniors and Mrs. Myron Randall who is helping them in their planning and will be going with them. Information given by visiting seniors from Baltimore who were there last year has been of great help. A tentative schedule is for the group to leave Frederick on July 30 and travel by a southern route, arriving in camp on Aug. 9, and returning by a more direct route after the week in camp. They will travel in a mini-bus rented for the occasion. Another adult to accompany them and alternate with the driving is the greatest need at present. Anyone who might be interested in an expense paid three week trip can call the Frederick Field Station, 662-5106, Tuesday to Friday from 10-2, or Friday evening 5 to 9. The National Center West is 13,000 acres at Ten Sleep, Wyoming, in the heartland of the west, ft is a vast and varied domain-- mountains and canyons, streams and meadows, plains and mesas. The possibilities for development are unlimited, but for the present there are special events and primitive camping. In 1968 40 persons adventured a trial run camping there; in 1569 488 pioneered on All-States Rendevous; and this coming summer 4,000 will join the Wyomirs trek. The Seniors who will make the trip are Ruth Randall and Beth Shively of Braddock Heights; Suzan West of Lewistown; Veronica Roberts of near Mt. Pleasant; and Becky Moss and Sue Martin of Frederick.

Students' Use Of Telephone Halted Unauthorized use of school telephones by students calling the County Commissioners to urge restoration of funds in the Board of Education Budget was halted abruptly Thursday. Use of the phones for this purpose was discovered by Principal Karl S. Manwiller of Governor Thomas Johnson High School, and stopped. The matter was also called to the attention of the County Superintendent's office which also moved to halt it and learned Manwiller had already put the quietus on the campaign. The incident was called to the attention of The News-Post late Thursday afternoon by Robert E. Dailey Sr,, president of the Frederick City and County Taxpayers League, who said he had just received a complaint of the incident from a league member. Superintendent of Schools John L. Carnochan's office verified the report and stated the practice iad been cut short, adding that the entire matter is still under investigation. School authorities said the students began their telephone campaign after discussing Wednesday's teachers' budget study with a faculty member. Tte Frederick County Teachers Association held a mass meeting Wednesday night at the Frederick Armory on the impending budget cuts by the county commissioners. Thursday was marked by a stepped-up involvement of teachers and the general public to express to the commissioners their sentiments about the cut of some $2 million from school budget requests. Dr. Carnochan's office said that it had been learned that some teachers from other schools, during their free time, had been using school phones to call the commissioners--at Waver ley, Parkway and Middletown, but that this was not in conflict with school phone use policy. However, the use of school phones by students during school hours for such purposes is without authorization. The school office also said that it was learned the commissioners "are discounting" such calls from teachers, "because the teachers have already expressed their stand en masse." 'Teachers are permitted free use of school phones as long as the calls are not "toll calls." Murder Suspect Held By Police By .WILLIAM GRAFF AM Montgomery Bureau Chief TAKOMA PARK-District of Columbia Police said Thursday hey have arrested a suspect in the murder of seven-year-old Adeline Ann Williams, whose ravished body was found with a cut throat in the Sligo Creek Parkway area Wednesday night.

Details of the site where the girl's body was found and the condition of her body were given by Montgomery County Police as the location, 40 feet north of Mississippi Avenue near the Parkway. This is across the boundary line in Montgomery County. The girl's body was thrown over a twenty-foot high bank am found about 8:15 Wednesday night by a resident who lives opposite the site. The resident, unidentified by the police, became curious about some color he could see in the tangle of bushes opposite his home and, after getting his binoculars, discovered it was the figure of a young girl. He called a neighbor and the two of them investigated and called the police. The shoulder length blonde- haired girl was said by Montgomery County Medical Examiner John Ball as having been raped after death and found unclothed from the waist down.

The mother had been admitted to the hospital two days previous to the incident because of an overdose of drugs. Montgomery County police said that they had no reason to suspect that there was any connection between the girl's death and two previous murder-stab- bings in the county earlier this year.
