FIRST SECTIONS ** JrAUJJiO SECTION SINGLE COPY Mi Hi y SCALE MODEL OF HISTORIC FREDERICK-This work of art is by Webster Heck. By MONICA MAIN Staff Writer Children from 1 to 100 will have the opportunity to "travel through history" during the forthcoming historical week of June 8-14 as the Frederick Children's Museum, compliments of the Frederick Historical Society, will open its doors to the public from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., Monday through Saturday. The museum features everything from arrowhead exhibits to a scale model of "Historic Frederick." The museum is located at 24 East Church Street, in the basement of the Historical Society Building and next to the antique shop, "Attic Treasures," also a historical society function. Upon entering the museum, one may view a student art exhibit, including art of all types from contemporary to abstract displays. A large display case houses a life-size manikin, created by North Frederick Elementary students under the guidance of Mrs. Judith Bacorn. The man is dressed in an Edwardian outfit, with his hand resting upon a seventeenth century chair. An authentic old portrait hangs from the wall and an oriental rug finished the scene. In an adjoining room, two large display cases hold dolls from various points about the world, many dating back to the early eighteenth century. The doll collection was a donation from Miss Judith E. Duarte of Emmitsburg. Mr. and Mrs. David Hagan lent a collection of early toys, including trains and doll furniture to the museum. Also on display are tiny toys from the attic of Mr. and Mrs. Charles E, Ross. The Ross collection features eighteenth century doll furniture and tiny circus toys. A most impressive display in the museum is a display case of scale models of the historical buildings of Frederick. The scale models were created by Webster Heck in memory of William Besant Bennett Sr. The panorama in the background was designed by Thomas Johnson students under the direction of Bryant Aylor and Mrs. Bacorn's Norm Frederick students. Among the buildings in the display are the Hessian Barracks, the Old Courthouse, and the Roger Brooke Taney Home. A pottery collection from Thurmont fills another case. Much of the pottery, all hand made by Thurmont residents, is very elaborate. A unique exhibit is that from Snyders Hat Shop. The display includes numerous "bonnets" from the old days. The hats were donated by Charles Reed. In another room, one can find a showcase of "keepsake items." Among the articles is a wooden water pipe, a Frederick Trolley Lamp, donated by Charles McC. Mathias; and various household equipment An 18th century Hydrop eter for Spirits once owned by Dr. Thomas Johnson and his "liquor\still" used at Rose Hill is another feature of the exhibit. A rural Frederick County arrangement shows antique furniture. Several other display cases contain military and Indian artifacts. There is no admission fee for the ever-growing Frederick City highlight. Members of the Histcr'^al Society of Frederick are pleased to act as hostesses for anyone wishing to tour the museum any weekday and Saturday from 10 until 4 p.m. DOLL COLLECTION by Miss Judith E. Duarte of Emmitsburg is one of many treasures. Three Die On Rain-Slick Roads Soviet Fleet Hike Presses U. S. 7th PORT SWETTENHAM, Malaysia(AP) -- The Soviet naval buildup in the Indian Ocean is pressing the United States into a similar expansion, the commander of the U.S. 7th Fleet said today. "The Soviets have been sending their units to the Indian Ocean in considerable numbers recently," Vice Adm. Maurice F. Weisner told newsmen aboard his flagship, the guided Games Of Chance In Retail Nixed By New State Law BALTIMORE (AP) - A law forbidding all games of chance in Maryland retail establishments took effect this week. Norman Polovoy, consumer protection chief in the Maryland attorney general's office, said Friday many games were found to be conducted improperly and dishonestly with exaggerated prizes. The new law carries a fine of $50 for a violation, which is considered a misdemeanor. The measure was enacted as SenateBill332 in 1969, vetoed by the governor but then passed on an overriding vote during the special legislative session last year. Polovoy said he believes Maryland is among the first states in the country to enact legislation ending games of chance. The bill was originally introduced by Sen. James Clark of Howard County. missile light cruiser Oklahoma City. "We feel it would be desirable for the United States to have a presence in the Indian Ocean," he added, "and it would-1 would say--be related to whav me Soviets are doing there too." He said he hoped for greater freedom with the end of the U.S. involvement in Vietnam so the U.S. naval vessels could be committed to the Indian Ocean in numbers "more than we have recently had." Recent worldwide Soviet military exercises saw Soviet naval vessels in the region "in considerable numbers," he said. Weisner stressed that his desire to have more U.S. ships in the Indian Ocean did not signal a new U.S. military policy.

Cambodia Blunts Red Attack Bloodmobile Visit Tuesday The Red Cross Bloodmobile will be in Frederick cm Tuesday, June 9, at the Evangelical Lutheran Church, 31 E. Church Street, with registration of donors being held from 10 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. The people who have been scheduled are urged to try to visit the Bloodmobile this Tuesday, if possible. Also. itis"very important," officials stressed for those persons who have been requested to donate for an open heart operation to keep their appointments. "Everyone wants to enjoy life .. .to experience it.. .feel it. live it. What better way can this be done than to share life with someone else," said James A. Grove, chairman of the program. "Last year millions of people gained a life to share through the American Red Cross Blood Program. A donor can give a unit of blood in less than an hour that could help protect his family and others who cannot give. "The demand for blood and blood products is constantly increasing, and Red Cross must depend on people like our donors in Frederick to meet these demands. Be a Red Cross Blood Donor on June 9." Cambodian capital of Angkor Wat. A responsible military source said the enemy troops were withdrawing toward Angkor Wat, the site of historic ruins from the ancient Cambodian empire. The fighting centered around the provincial airport two miles northwest of Siem Reap. The informant said enemy forces had been cleared from the airport but that he did not know whether it had reopened. It closed down after sporadic fighting Friday. Reports from Siem Reap indicated that street fighting had died down but that some North Vietnamese and Viet Cong units were still in the town. Some sources said Siem Reap is defended by a large Cambo- dian force and that the enemy attack apparently was aimed more at embarrassing the Phnom Penh government than at capturing and holding the territory. A big enemy victory near Angkor Wat would receive publicity because of the name of the ancient capital. Viet Cong and North Vietnamese troops also kept up their pressure today in other parts of Cambodia, and spokesmen in Phnom Penh said the current offensive is the enemy's largest and most widespread since U.S. and South Viet- Phnom Penh said enemy troops had seized control of Highway 6 between the Cambodian capital and Kompong Cham and were barring even civilian traffic from the road. Numerous Injuries As Damages Mount try's eastern provinces a month ago. The enemy kept up heavy pressure on Kompong Cham, a provincial capita! 80 miles north of Phnom Penh. The source in Auto Makers Must Post Bond In State ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) One of the many new laws that become effective in Maryland on July first is a little noted piece of legislation enacted by the 1970 General Assembly that will, among other things, require automobile manufacturers to post bond of $100,000 each with the Department of Motor Vehicles to back up their warranties. ~~ The measure specifies that the money is to be used for the "benefit of the department and the public who may suffer or sustain any loss by reason of the breach of any express or implied warranty in the sale of such. . . .a motor vehicle." And the law further states hat the manufacturer "shall be ointly and severally liable with he dealer to the purchaser. . . or the breach of any express r implied. . ." The broad consumer protec- ion bill, which was one of those ponsoredby the administration f Gov. Marvin Mandel, also pecifies that no license to sell ars, trucks, trailers or motor- ycles may be issued unless the dealer maintains "and operates i service shop equipped for rea- onably adequate and proper ervicing of the vehicles to be old, . ." or unless the dealer as a contract with a nearby, convenient service shop. In addition to the $100,000 xnd required of each auto and ruck manufacturer, the bill also requires that each dealer post 15,000bond with the department which can be used to reimburse anyone who may sustain a loss because the dealer fails to live up to any express or implied warranty.

Rolfe Castleman) State Adapts To Overtimes Wages July 1 Employes of businesses covered by the Maryland Wage and Hour Law will be entitled to time and one-half of their hourly wage for hours worked in excess of 40 hours during one week after July 1,1970, Henry Miller, Commissioner of the Maryland Department of Labor and Industry announced Saturday. The new provision, enacted by the General Assembly during the 1970 session and signed into law by Governor Marvin Mandel requires "all employes as may be subject to the provisions of this subtitle (Wage and Hour Law) shall receive a wage of one and one-half times their usual hourly wage rate for any hours worked in excess of 40 during any work week". Commissioner Miller noted that this is the first time such a provision has been enacted into law within the State of Maryland and he cautioned employers to familiarize themselves with the provisions of the law as noted above so as to avoid being in violation. Penalties spelled out in the law state that any employer deemed to be in violation and upon conviction thereof shall be fined not less than $200 nor more than $1,000. Miller further suggested that any employe or employer who desires clarification of the new act contact the Department of Labor and Industry, 301W. Preston Street or that he call the Division of Labor Standards of the Department at 383-3010, Ext. 8473.

By MARGARET HINDMAN Staff Writer Local State Police experienced one of the most hectic and tragic nights in recent memory as three persons died on Frederick County highways and at least eight others were injured in a dozen accidents Friday evening and early Saturday morning. Both fatal accidents were attributed in part to rain-slick roads following a cloudburst which dumped over an inch of rain in the county within a one hour period. Fred Edward White, 46, RFD 5, Frederick, and his 13-year- old son, Matthew Jon White, were pronounced dead atthe Frederick Memorial Hospital after a two- car accident on U.S. 15 in the northbound at U.S. 340 at 7:40 p.m., according to State Police. A 62-year-old Toronto* Canada woman, Ann Nicholson Blackburn, died of severe head injuries at the hospital after a single car accident on 1-70, just east of U.S. 40A at 5:10 p.m. Friday, State Police said. State Police recorded at least 12 accidents in the period from 5 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Saturday. Investigation in at least six ol the accidents was not complete! Saturday morning and details were not available. Police said that no major injury had occurrec in those accidents still under investigation. In addition to three fatalities, four others were treated at Frederick Memorial Hospital for injuries received in the fatal crash which claimed the lives of White and his son. Rufus McCleaf, 61, Bowie, was treated for severe facial lacerations, and two passengers in his car, Sherry Linda McCleaf, Seabrook, and Patricia Ann Lyons, East Riverdale were treated for multiple injuries. Mrs. Florence Elizabeth White was admitted to Frederick Memorial Hospital suffering from multiple injuries and shock. She was listed in satisfactory condition Saturday morning. Tpr. Fred Yeager said White's 1968 Dodge sedan was southbound on U.S^ 15. just north of the U.S. 340 intersection and the vehicle crossed the median strip, spun around on the slick pavement, and was struck broadside on the left by the northbound 1964 Cadillac sedan operated by Rufus McCleaf. In the earlier fatal accident, Tpr. Paul Sanders said 1967 se- laa operated by R o b e r t Glyn Blackburn, 76, Toronto, was eastbound on 1-70, just east of U.S. 40A, when his car went out of control on the wet roadway. Blackburn's wife was thrown against the car door, it opened, and she was thrown into the roadway. Sanders said seat belts were available in the car, but that Mrs. Blackburn was not wearing one. Robert Blackburn was charged with operating a motor vehicle in an unsafe condition, Sanders said, because there was no tread on either of the car's rear tires. In a two-car collision on UjS. 40, 1.5 miles easl of Frederick Friday night at 10:19, both drivers involved were taken to Frederick Memorial Hospital but no serious injuries were sustained. Larry Franklin Harley, Rt. 6, was admitted to the hospital for observation and was listed in satisfactory condition Saturday morning. Police are withholding charges against Harley pending his release from the hospital. The Harley vehicle was traveling at an apparent high rate of speed, police said, when it struck the rear of a car operated by Harold Eugene Smith Sr. of Boonsboro . Smith was taken to the hospital last night where he was treated and released. Police estimated damage to the Smith car at $1,000 and to the Harley vehicle at $900. Another injury resulted from an accident at 11:50 p.m. Friday on old Rt. 75 at New London. A car operated by Dennis Wayne Ford of Frederick was declared a total loss after it skidded off the highway and struck a boulder on the embankment. A passenger, Lois E. Hatcher of Frederick, was admitted to the Frederick Memorial Hospital and was listed Saturday morning in satisfactory condition. Treated and released Friday night were Ford and another passenger, Ruth E. Hatcher. Ford was charged with operating a motor vehicle with a revoked license.
