THE NEWS, Frederick, Maryland Haw i. Hit BiH Of Ntws From MAIYLANO MOfvTGOMEftr COUNTY v- = \ By The Montgomery County Bur+qu | SILVER SPRING-The Montgomery County Planning Board last week endorsed * route for the Outer Beltway going between Rockviiie and Gaithersburg and crossing the Potomac River at Watkins Island. . ^ . The action on the controversial 24-mile route thus rejected the 20.3-mile alternative route which would have run south of Rockviiie from the Potomac to the Prince George's county line. However, the planner recommended that a nine and a half mile "Rockviiie Freeway" be built over a portion of the rejected route, part of the land for which has been purchased, before the other Outer Beltway in the mid-80's is completed. The proposed route, estimated to cost $86.9 million* will bridge Route 70-S just north of the Washingtonian County Club in Gaithersburg. ROCKVTLLE-Six high school teachers at Walt Whitman high school who were reprimanded for joining the anti-war protests on May 7, 8 and had part of their salary withheld have filed grievance charges with the Board of Education. The teachers, who say the American Civil Liberties Union will accept their case, are challenging the fairness of a superintendents memorandum which said "personal leave may not be granted for political activity." ROCKVlLLE-County Councilman William W. Greenhalgh who received endorsement from Demos-70's last week for County Executive has pledged his "full support" to Governor Marvin Mandel's bid to return to the State House. Greenhalgh had not previously announced support of any Democratic candidate in the gubernatorial race and his move is seen as signaling the end of any possible race for the governorship by R. Sargent Shriver whom he might have been expected to support. RIVERDALE-A new Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission unit was created last week to start a better computerized effort for checking sewerage system flows in the bi-county area. At about $100,000 for the first year of operation, the new monitoring unit will concentrate on developing data for the Seneca Creek Basin and two areas in Prince George's County. With the use of increased metering devices on the system, the WSSC expects a better read-out on flows and capacity where further service may be under consideration. "The plan could also be used to show the future effects of proposed extensions to aid in determining if they should be authorized," Program Planning Staff Member Frank E. Swanson said. For many years, the WSSC has relied primarily on population estimates and forecasts by area planning agencies as the basis for predictions. This data frequently has been on the conservative side and need for improved information has become apparent. * * * * * ROCKVILLE-A "Charter Understanding Seminar" sponsored by the League of Women Voters and the County Council will be held here June 9 at 8 p.m. in the County Office Building. Principal speaker will be Bernard Ross of American University with David L. Cahpon, County Attorney; Royce Hanson, Charter Revision Commissioner; Charles Mack, Republican leader; and Mrs. Rita Davidson, Democratic leader, as panelists.

Scott Speaking In Frederick Thursday Brigadier General Robert L. Scott Jr., USAF (Ret.X World War U flying ace and author of "God Is My Co-Pilot," will speak on "The American Military: Target Of A Smear'* at West Frederick Junior High School on Thursday at 8 p.m. The public is cordially invited to attend the meeting, which is part of a month-long tour and is sponsored locally by the Frederick County TRAIN Committee. During bis four trips to Vietnam, General Scott was convinced that our servicemen have bom the will to win and the ability to win the war against the Communists. "All they need," he says, "are the orders to win. But so far, our leaders have tied the hands of our troops while continuing to send aid to the Communists!" General Scott said he is now convinced that our Armed Forces face an even more deadly enemy at home than the Communist guerillas in Vietnam. "There appears to be a concerted campaign in much of this nation's press, supported by many influential politicians, to discredit and destroy our fighting men," he believes. "This deliberate smear of our troops, assisted by the Communist-led agitation in our schools and even on some military bases, could destroy the military might of this country without a shot being fired." The World War H flying Ace points out, "based only on hearsay and year-old rumors, ably spread by leftist propagandists, some of our troops have been accused of mass murder. Without a scintilla of hard evidence, the communications media has just assumed they are guilty. But for some reason, proven reports of massive Communist atrocities receive hardly a word of publicity." And the General asks, "Who benefits from such obvious news management? Who is behind the drive to demoralize and destroy our military? These are questions more Americans should start asking -- and demanding answers for them!" After failing to obtain a political appointment to West Point, General Scott enlisted in the Regular Army and then won a CHANGES FORBIDDEN Taxco, Mexico, to preserve its appearance as an old Spanish town, has been made a national monument by the Mexican government so that nothing modern may be constructed within its limits.

Later General Scott became Fighter Commander for the entire China Theatre of War, under General Claire Lee Chennault's command. While leading 388 combat missions with the former Flying Tigers, General Scott was credited with destroying 22 enemy planes in the air. At the time! of his recall from combat to instruct in tactics he was the Allies' top ace. During thirty years of active flying in single-seat military aircraft, he accumulated almost 25,000 hours* flying time -- three solid years in the sky.
