From The Montgomery Bureau ROCKVILLE - Two political spectaculars will be held in Montgomery County this week, one of them by Democrats For* 70*s in endorsing County Council candidates, and the other a nonpartisan affair for four Board of Education vacancies. First on the program will be the-Demos-70's meeting at the Educational Services Center auditorium here on Thursday, June 4, at which the party leadership group will select seven of the 12 candidates seeking its endorsement for the County Council. The meeting will also endorse candidates for the Courthouse offices but only one candidate for each of the four posts has filed for endorsement and three of these are incumbents. The Courthouse candidates are: Howard K. Smith^ Circuit Court clerk; Ralph W. Offutt, sheriff; Winifred E. Scott, register of wills, all incumbents; and Andrew L. Sonner, deputy state's attorney who is running for State's attorney as incumbent William A, Linthicum, a Democrat, is' not seeking re-election. With the withdrawal last week of William G. Colman, a member of the Board of Education, from seeking the County Council endorsement, there are now 12 persons seeking support. They are: Councilwoman Hamae Garrott; Mrs. Elizabeth Scull, widow of former Council President David Scull; Neal Potter, president of the Citizens Planning Association; Achilles M. Tuchtan of Rockville; Alfred Christie ffl of Washington Grove; William F. Moore, a Wheaton minister; Robert Bainum, anur- sing home operator; William Scher, county central committee member; Michael Gudis, county central committee member; Micbael Gudis, president of the Montgomery Young Democrats; Jacqueline Simon, community relations advisor to the county Housing Authority; and William H. Wfflcox, planning board member. Only three of the above have a track record of sorts for being electable, Garrott, Tuchtan and Scull because of her extensive work in the county. To chose the next four to make as strong a ticket as possible to face the eventual Republican strength of Council President Avis Birely and Cleatus E. Barnett and Richmond M. Keeney, incumbent council members, wfll be the purpose of a meeting Monday night between William W. Greenhalgh and Richard Schifter, central committee chairman. Greenhalgh won the endorse- ment of the Demos-70's last week for County Executive and he and Shifter, long on the out's over parly affairs, are reported to be seeking party unity for the coming elections. Party leaders are predicting that Greenhalgh and Shifter will have an easier time, though a difficult time, in agreeing on the Council than they will have on membership of the county central committee. For a battle is seen as shap-i ing up for the control of the central committee between supporters of Greenhalgh, who helped him win endorsement last week, and supporters of Shifter who saw their strength erode through four ballots as they sought to gain the County Executive endorsement for Dickran Y. Hovsepian, a former Rockville mayor. The second spectacular on the week's program will be the search by some 32 candidates for endorsement by a nonparti- san meeting for the four school board vacancies. The meeting will commence at 10 a.m. and run until 4 p.m. at the Walter Johnson high school on Old Georgetown Road. Only Rosemary HUberg, School Board President, has filed for re-election. The Citizens Nominating Convention, an organization of citizens groups which set up the nonpartisan system of endorsing a School Board slate in 1966, will seek to duplicate their successes of 1966 and 1968 when their slates won. Endorsement by the Convention is not necessary to run and a nonpartisan primary in September would narrow the field to eight The four vacancies to be filled would then be chosen from these eight in the November election. Of course, neither is endorsement of Demos-70's necessary for any Democrat to run in the September primary and once the Demos-70's endorsements have been finished, it will be significant to watch whether other slates of Democrats are created in the proverbial "smoked filled rooms" by groups of other interests. In another development last week on the political scene, 31 candidates, including 10 incumbents, say they will seek the endorsement of Demos-70's for the 21 seats in the Maryland General Assembly. Endorsement of the slate for the House of Delegates and state senate will be made on June 10.
