PifcB-8 THE NEWS, Frederick, Maryland Tteelajr. Signatures Sought By Dr. Alan Richter Or. Alan Rkhter, biochemist rator of Laboratory Cell * in Frederick, said he plans at this time to push forward with his announced Intentions of running as an independent candidate for Congressman from Maryland's Sixth District There is one major obstacle: He needs 5,600 signatures of registered voters on a petition before he can get his name on the ballot. "When I announced my intentions last week," he said, "I was under the impression, because I had been told so by local officials, that I needed only 300 signers." A further check at Annapolis, he explained, revealed that 5,600 signers or 3 per cent of the registered voters in the Sixth District, were required. Petitions bearing these names must be filed with the election boards in the respective counties within the district by July 6. He said "I just don't know how much interest there is at this time for an independent candidate." But he intends to find out, Dr. Richter, who has resMed in Frederick the last 18 months and most of thepastlOyears, stressed that if he obtains the required number of signatures he will "be on the ballot as an independent candidate," and emphasized that this does not mean "Democrat, Republican or American" party canditate. "I became interested in politics," he said, because "the times we live in are not normal... my interest is stimulated by what is going on around us... I would like to take a stab at solving the problems and we may need unconventional approaches solve these problems." to The Brooklyn native holds a bachelor's degree from Cornell (1955), a master's (1957) and doctorate (1959) in biochemistry, both from the University of Wisconsin. : He came to Frederick with the Army in 1959 assigned as a biochemist to Fort Detrick, where he served with the Army until 1961. He returned to Detrick as a civilian microbiologistfrom 1963-66, taught at Georgia State College in Atlanta in 1966-67, SJC Plans Alumnae Activities Saint Joseph College alumnae will hold their annual reunion over the weekend of June 5, 6 and 7. No formal activities have been scheduled for Friday evening, when alumnae will be free to visit with classmates. A meeting of the Alumnae Council is scheduled for 9 a.m., Saturday, to be followed by Workshops for Class Secretaries and Club Presidents conducted by the national First and Second Vice Presidents, Mrs. Robert Seaker, Harrisburg, Pa., and Mrs. Robert Davie, Scotch Plains, N.J. The Rt Rev. Msgr Robert R. Kline of Mount Saint Mary's College will celebrate and give the homily at the Mass for Living Alumnae at 11:15 in the College Chapel During a vigil light ceremon; following the Mass, Natfona President, Barbara Ann Duffy Philadelphia, Pa., will conduc the Installation of newly elected took a research position at Rosewood State Hospital in Baltimore until moving to Frederick in 19*9. Or. Richter contends: "The basic flaw in American society today is the manner of distribution of tax money. Practically all of it flows to Washington, D.C., where it is redistributed to flow outward to a variety of en- reached pressure groups set in fixed position to receive the money. The noise and complaints that one hears today are due to the fact that may people rightly eel that they are not getting their fair share of the tax gravy. This feeling is absolutely correct Some people will argue that the answer to this problem is ever to keep correcting the sys- em so that the tax money is airly and justly collected and then fairly and justly redistributed. This writer disagrees. "The most practical answerto the just collection and distribution of tax money is to eliminate the present system, Le. to eliminate both the collection and the distribution of tax money. This possibility is not unreal. "Consider the tax - supported university. The solution to the iroblem of the universities today is quite simple and runs like this. Take the total operating e#tense of running a university and livlde by the number of students. That amount of money we will call the tuition, ft may run high, perhaps $15,000. Obviously, students don't have mat kind of cash. But, if a person wishes to buy a $15,000 house, he is usually able to do it, so why can't a person 'buy* an education for about the same price? officers. Sister Margaret Dougherty president of Saint Joseph College and principal speaker at the luncheon, has, upon request, chosen "SJC, 1970" for her topic. Mrs Ronald Niklaus, Shiremanstown Pa., is toastmistress for tin luncheon. Sister Marie Therese Eberhart, D.C., alumnae Sister extends the official welcome and Mrs. Harry M.

Sween ey, are serving as chairman cochairman of the 1970 Reunion Brenda Quits Taking Medicine "A few years ago, while still Associated with 1st Battalion Company "A 1 115th Irfaulry Maryland Army National Guard, In Frederick I became involved in a matter not of military significance but certainly at hu- therizatton was made and it was determined that Brenda had a hole In her heart the size of a dime, tt was also determined that man in the rtance. A young at that time bad a daughter who was born with a heart defect "In typical "A" Company fashion, the members of the unit began a campaign of fund - raising to assist the family through the ordeal which was to follow, fa answer to the many questions of ~Brenda DiGilarmo EDITOR'S NOTE: Capt Ernest Sbyder, Maryland National Guard, submitted the following article to let all those who helped little Brenda DiGilarmo and her family, know just how important their contributions were, and to show them what they have accomplished. Brenda had a heart defect, and has recently been cur ed^ interested persons concerning 'He signs on the dotted line and gets Ms free choice of what he wants to learn, has some say about what goes on at the university, and when he graduates, gets a job which enables him to Â«y back the cost of his education. If he works 40 years, the payments that he would pay back would run in the case we mentioned, of $375 per year for 40 years. This is a reasonable cost 'or an education that enables the student to earn $15,000 per year. "Under the proposed plan where a student would be paying 'or his own education, it seems hardly probable that he would il) be inclined to burn down his own university which he is laying for,(2)beinclinedtowaste he years of his education which he is paying for. The chaos at the universities today is 100 per cent due to the fact that the students are not paying a significant enough portion of the cost of their education* Therefore, they are unable to appreciate its value. "A second consequence of the proposed plan is that private edu- sational institutions including religious ones would be better able to fare in the competitive arena If tax - supported institutions lost their favored status, ft seems to me that tax - supported institutions should lose their favored status since they are really inferior places which are being buttressed by taxes, Le. ft is the private institutions which are superior and should be assisted. "Another consequence is that a person's taxes would be lessened if he did not have to pay for the education of other persons. Under the proposed plan, each person would simply pay for his own education. "To conclude, in the instance of the university, I have proposed a method for the payment of tuition which avoids the use of tax money for the support of the universities, has the effect of reducing taxes on the part of everyone, instills in the students a sense of financial responsibility, eliminates those from the university rolls who are not really interested in getting an education, and the greatest effect of all, it does away with.the bureaucratic middleman who collects the tax money and then decides how it should be spent at the university, something the bureaucrat really knows nothing about in the first place. "In other areas of American society, taxes can be done away with and the direct payment for services substituted to make a better life for everyone." CS Pack 267 Plans Busy Summertime Cub Scout Pack 267 of Calvary United Methodist Church held their regular pack meeting on May 25 in the Parish Hall of the church. Cubmaster C. Basil Jones presided over the meeting with Margaret Connolly leading in the singing. The opening and closing ceremony was presented by Den 8 under the leadership of Sandra Dicken. Awards were presented by Mr. and Mrs. William Kennedy, Awards Committeemen to the following cubs and their parents: Donald Snoots Wolf Badge; Gold Arrow under Wolf Badge, to David Tracey, Max Baer, Donald Snoots, and Russell Mossburg; Silver Arrow Point under Wolf Badge to Terre Kennedy; Bear Badge to Michael Ramsburg; Gold Arrow Point under Bear Badge to Charles Jones Jr.; Year Pins to Randy Hildebrand, Steven Head, Patrick Ramsburg, Mi- the present condition of Brenda DiGilarmo, I would appreciate it if you could print the following article for all who are interested to see: "Brenda DiGilarmo has quit taking medicine. For Brenda and her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Dennis DiGilarmo of Thunnont, this marks the end of more than two years of tension, anxiety, apprehension, and just plain worry, tt also means that now Brenda Lynette DiGilarmo has a future. In January of 1967, it looked as though Brenda's'future was very bleak and tragically short "When Brenda was but one month old it was noted that she had a defective heart, and when she contracted pneumonia in January of 1968, the already defective heart began to fail. Hope for her survival at that time was very slim. Brenda's existence was a matter of day-to-day survival. On June 24,1968, the first ca- an operation at this time meant little chance of survival and thus doctors decided that an attempt would be made to put off any corrective operation until Brenda was at least five years old. Things got progressively worse, however, and in December 1969, another heart catheri- zation was made. At this time it was determined that the hole in Brenda's heart was much larger, and that excessive amounts of blood were being pumped into the lungs. Corrective surgery could not wait. In spite of Brenda's weakened condition, and her tiny size, surgery to correct the faulty heart was scheduled. She was admitted to University Hospital on January 18, 1970 and surgery was performed on January 23. Drs. Blackford and Garvey. of University Hospital performed the open-heart surgery which was to give Brenda a 20-80 chance of survival. The operation, which took 5% hours to perform, was a complete success and it marked the turning point in Brenda's life. From that point forward Brenda began an uphill climb which was made much easier by a repaired heart. On February 2, 1970, she returned home and the DiGilarmo household took on an air of hope and anticipation for Brenda's future. Since then, Brenda has improved steadily, and now, she appears like any other youngster, instead of gasping for each precious breath, she runs, Jumps, plays, and enjoys the things only a 3ft year old could enjoy. She is by all means a typical little girl. "Mr. and Mrs. Dennis DK511- armo have more than the brilliant surgeons at University Hospital to be thankful for. They acknowledge fond appreciation for the hundreds of wonderful people who expressed concern in letters and prayers, and, the generous who donated to the Brenda Di Gilarmo HeartFund," Capt Snyder said. "For Brenda it is blue skies and sunshine. For Chris and Dennis DiGilarmo, a resumption of normal living is In view. In spite of all the troubles that plague the world today, the Di- Gilarmo household faces each new tomorrow with hope and a profound knowledge that this is, indeed, a wonderful world and it has in it, a lot of wonderful people. "On behalf of all the members of Company "A," I would Â·like to express my appreciation to all of those who contributed to the Brenda DiGilarmo Heart Fund. Having had the opportunity to command Company "A" was one of the greatest experiences of my life not only because of my military association and the fine personnel Jin the unit, but also because of my association with the community and those who helped support activities like, this very worthwhile project Capt Snyder concluded.

There will be an official town Clean-Up Day June 10. Residents are urged to stash their trash for pick-up; however, large items', such as discarded washing machines, refrigerators, and other appliances, should be excluded from the June 10 pick-up. Even a progressive community such as Mount Airy--with a competent and dedicated town council--is faced with noxious problems occasionally. It seems the garbage collector rebelled at performing his accustomed duties when confronted with a large .trash can full of horse manure. For several collection days, he went his usual route, assiduously ignoring the can and its pungent contents. Whatever happened to the can is not quite clear--perhaps the homeowner decided to fertilize his shrubbery -but residents are urged to secure their more unpleasant garbage in plastic bags and place them in proper metal garbage cans with tightly-closed lids. There will be a town meeting for approval of the current budget at the Fire Hall on Monday, June 8, at 8:00 p.m. All citizens are urged to attend. msiness administration. Peter J.
