The state was directed to hold public hearings before coming back to court with the case. Disposition of the case was made after a half-hour conference in the chambers of Judge Meyer M. Cardin of Baltimore Circuit Court. An aide said the judge would sign an order later in the day formally directing the state agency concerned to exhaust its administrative remedies -- by holding hearings on the controversial dam -- before coming into court. The State Water Resources Board . proposes damming Big Hunting Creek in the 4,394-acre Cunningham Falls State Park to create a 43-acre lake.

Behind barrages of mortars, rockets and hand grenades, the Viet Cong assaulted eight positions in and around the city of pbout 12,000. They got into the streets, burned houses and unsuccessfully attempted to empty the city jail. The attack force was made up of the hard-core 70th and 72hd battalions, crack Red provincial units, heavily reinforced by less stalwart local force guerri'las. South Vietnamese officers said at least 130 enemy weapons were captured and the defending forces casualties. suffered only light Tarn Ky, 30 miles south of Da Nang, is the capital of Quang Tin Province in the northern 1st Corps area. The Viet Cong made another unsuccessful attempt to raid it Saturday, before the weekend presidential election.

(AP)-- the ground war that preceded South Vietnam's presidential election Sunday. The Communists have lost almost 800 dead m major actions in the past few clays, while about 70 Americans have been killed. The air offensive against North Vietnam was slowed by heavy thunder-showers over much of the country. U.S. headquarters reported 119 missions f own Tuesday, with none into the Hanoi-Haiphong area. Enrollment In County Schools Below Estimates A record 17,657 students attended opening day classes in Frederick County schools Tuesday, according to Paul E. Fog- Ic, director of pupil services That figure represents an increase of 300 students over last year's opening day attendance, but fewer than the 18,000 predicted. Fogle expects at least 100 to 200 more students to be enrolled by the end of the month. Of the total enrollment, 9,648 students registered for element- tary schools and 8,008 registered for junior and senior high school classes.

UA 4 Hero' Competition Keen For Teachers By STAN GOLDBERG Staff Writtr Frederick County must keep salaries on a competitive level with surrounding counties if it hopes to avoid a teachers' shortage similar to the one this summer, the director of personnel said. Or. Donald Z. Koons said that the most important factor to a teacher seeking a job is money. "If the pay is low the county will not get good teachers," he said. The present starting salary of Frederick County enables the county to compete, Koons said, but, other counties will raise their salaries and Frederick must keep up with them. There are still 11 vacancies in the school system. Two of these are full time classroom teachers in elementary schools. There were 2Vfe at this time last year. Koons said that because they could not find a teacher, a special education course at Thurmont High School which was to have been initiated this year, had to be dropped. At Elm Street Elementary school a course in Industrial Arts was also dropped. He said that the county had to hire people without full certification, but this was not unusual. The teacher shortage arose this summer because the budget and the salary scale were not released until June 1. "May is usually the prime month for employing teachers," Koons said. "Most teachers like to know where they will be assigned by the end of May, but this was impossible with the late budget." Koons, who commented that he was not pleased at all with the situation this summer, said that this year he had to' hire many of the teachers in August Last year most were hired be^ fore then. He said that he plans to expand the recruiting program this year by going to more colleges. Derr Chosen Heart Fund Chairman John W.
