Pan B-10 THE NEWS* Frederick, Maryland Friday, Jsae », lf» . ··«··· ..«»»ii . ·· ' i" ' ·- """Brunswick Planning Second River Festival 3y MARGOT MOR Staff Writer BRUNSWICK -- This civic- minded community on the southwest border of Maryland will hold its second annual Brunswick Potomac River Festival, Aug. 12 through 16. Brunswick, site of the largest marshalling yards of any single railroad, gained more pure atmosphere within the past two decades but suffered momentary economic disaster when the B O Railroad converted from steam to diesel fuel, thereby enabling engines to by-pass the town. Undaunted by this setback, the citizens of Brunswick have risen to the occasion and demonstrate a unity of purpose and civic pride which could set an example for many other communities not so well-endowed with public-spirited residents. The Brunswick Potomac River Festival will include exhibits at the local museum in the Kaplon Building, an art show open to everyone-- professionals, amateurs, and children-Mistaken Identity Of Flag The flag included in recent article concerning the Barbara Fritchie Home is not the authentic Barbara Fritchie Flag. Mrs. Cornelia Rodock of East Patrick Street owns the flag of Barbara Fritchie, gained through a series of inheritances. Mrs. Rodock explained that Barbara Fritchie had no children, however she raised her niece, Catherine Stover. When Mrs. Fritchie died, the Stover child inherited nearly all of Fritchie's belongings. Mrs. Rodock's .husband was a direct descendant of Catherine Stover, thus the recipient of treasured articles belonging to the famed Frederick patriot. His wife now owns not only the immortal Fritchie flag but various other personal items dating back to Barbara's time. Vandals Knock Over Statue Vandals knocked over the statue in the fountain at Salamone's Funeral Home on East Patrick Street yesterday afternoon and broke the plumbing system in the fountain in front of the establishment. Police investigated the wrecked fountain and took several sets of fingerprints from the base of the statue. Damage to the fountain system was estimated at several hundred dollars by the owner of the funeral home.

Gen. Scott Speaks By Randy Dodson Staff Writer "All of us lit silently by and watched the entertainment media-which we support by buying their lotions and potions-condemn our fighting men at My Lai as murderers." Brig. Gen. Robert L. Scott Jr. told an audience of 150 at West Frederick Junior High School last night that the My Lai massacre myth was created by the press and high public officials, ·GOD IS MY CO-PILOT' AUTHOR - Ret.

"We are at war," said the World War n hero and author of "God Is My Co-pilot." "But there are people among us who are the best allies our Communist enemy could ever make." He cited Fulbright, McGovern, Bayh, and Kennedy as men whose "twisted beliefs are the basic issue of our waning day." Public officials and their accomplices, Scott argued, have created Americans who do not recognize that the country is at war, and instead pursue a "fanatical dream of peace." This desire for peace, he argued, is a rationalization of our national cowardice, and the same "poison of peace"hasbeen responsible for the decay of great civilizations throughout history, te said. "Little do the peacemongers realize that they and their civilization could be destroyed by rthers who do not accept their dealistic hogwash," Scott said. Scott condemned the so-called silent majority," for standing idly by while "misfits, criminals, demonstrators and anarchists" monopolise the news media. He argued that such "misfits" as. the Chicago Seven are over-protected by our Constitution, "We have laws on the books, _ d all we'd have to do is let our police put them into effect," Scott said, "If we had, the Berkeley campus would have been toe last riot. There never would have been a Kent State*" He cited aa occasion when he was charged with bringing the bodies of American servicemen home from Vietnam in "pathetic plastic bags," and was 'forced to slip back home so as not to provoke one of those moratoriums The Cyprus 1324 sq.

Guarantee is for one full year. We send our young men off to take all the risks," Scott said, "and they come home to take aU the abuse." While they are hi Vietnam, he argued, we deny them the right to strike at the enemy's vital installations, transportation network, supply depots, and missile bases. '1 doubt if I would volunteer for the service today unless I were assured that we would be sent out there to win," Scott said. The My Lai incident is one result of Communist propaganda, Scott argues, and Americans are determined to "hang ourselves in their own propaganda." The My Lai evidence first appeared in the Daily Worker, a Communist daily, Scott said, and was men "picked up by our media wttn all the eagerness of a victory in Vietnam." It is a fact of the Vietnam War that villagers support the enemy, Scott said, and that "women and children ambush, booby trap and decoy American servicemen," "I hope I have always beenand still am a compassionate human being," Scott said. "But what I did under the circumstances of combat I would do again and again-against an enemy of my country Therefore, ain I not just as much a murderer as either black sergeant Donald Mitchell or white lieutenant William Galley?" Scott envisioned a modern-day Rip Van Winkle who, having slept since World War n, wakes up to find that our Constitution and Declaration of Independence have been abandoned. The press is portraying adan- gerous image of America, Scott argued, and "as it benefits nobody but the Communists, I am positive that they have planned it in some way and have encouraged us in some way to advertise it with their propaganda*" * He urged a mobilization of the Silent Majority - "for America ... We desperately need it against the blind and destructive criticism of our nation's policy in Southeast Asia, Weneedpeace in this world-out we need it through strength and honor,^' Scott said. . After our son goes to Vietnam and gives up all the blessings of this country, we bring him home and charge him with murder, Scott said.
