Auto Club Report Heard The Advloory Board of the Fred erick County branch of the Auto mobile Club of Maryland met a noon Friday at the Francis Scot Key Hotel to hear a report from Leonard E. Kolmer. Baltimore ·' executive secretary of the Stat organization. Dr. Ignatius Bjorlee, "chairman presided and John T. Alexander the new local branch manager wa secretary. Kolmer reported to the local board on the annual nationa meeting in Kansas City in October He predicted that the present high way improvement programs in mos States will continue and that Mary land will be obliged to continue forward its present program. Ac cording to the State officer bills will be presented in the next Congress demanding that "shortsighte one-and-two year appropriation policies be abandoned in favor o: at least 10-year master planning.' Would Require Billions The speaker continued that it I estimated by highway officials that sixty billion dollars would have to be spent in bringing existing roads up to growing traffic requirements By comparison, he said only abou! 2.4-billion dollars were spent last year. In spite of vital defense needs money and materials for new highways are necessary, Kolmer stated Warning of possible shortages Kolmer - said that in spite of a momentary overstock of storage batteries in wholesaler's and doal- ers' hands now, manufacturers soy that an inevitable shortage is pending by mid-winter. And, unless the oil industry obtains the steel it needs to expand production, the speaker said, possible gasoline rationing next year is being spo't- en of. Shortages in copper are threatening to hold up new model car production. It is hoped that if restrictions are not raised aluminum may be a successful , substitute. Comfort In Election Year Said Mr. Kolmer, "some industry leaders do not seem to be much concerned by long term official forecasts of early new model production. They are mindful that 1952 is an election year and, ban- ing a worsened war situation material controls may be expected to be relaxed especially if cuts in car production reach a point that brings a loud complaint especially from labor because of lay-offs." . This year is the fiftieth anniversary of the American Automobile Association. A commemorative U. S. postage stamp will go (in sale at post offices all over the country on March 5. 1952. The Maryland Club is one of the earliest units of the AAA. In Frederick county there are 710 members.

Nov. 30--/r,--The Legislative Council's Judiciary Committee \oday endorsed a plan to boost the maximum fine for illegal gambling from $1,000 to $5,000. The action came as the com mittee held · a special meeting to draft 8 final report on 'its study of crime in Maryland. The in creased penaliy was one of 15 proposals submitted to the committee by law enforcement officials who attended hearings in various parts of the State last summer. The committee today approved five of the proposals delayed, action on one, and decided to include the others in a final report without comment." Those proposals in addition to the higher gambling fine, to be forwarded to the full Council with recommendation for enactment into law are: (1) That it become the duty of State Police tq investigate criminal law violations within towns, when requested by the State's Attorney, grand jury or 'appropriate court." Present laws prohibit such action except upon request of the chief of police, .he mayor of the town or the overnor. Central Bureau for Records (2) 'Inat a central bureau for teeping all criminal records be set up under the supervision of the Maryland State Police, with all pet sons having jurisdiction in criminal proceedings instructed to send sucn records to the central lie 3) That appointed public of- icinls refusing to answer in judicial proceedings questions on the :onduct of their offices on the [rounds of self incnmination be ·equired to appear before a bourd consisting of the Governor and he appointing authorities. That ward would have the right to remove or suspend them from office. 4) That the racing laws should )e amended to state specifically iow bets are to be made at race racks "iii Older to prevent ex- ensive, illegal bookmaking which low prevails at some tracks." It was agreed to call members f the State Racing Commission o determine how results called or in the latter proposal can cst bfe obtained. The committee also decided to ummon the Public Service Commission 1o obtain a clarification n its power to a.ssume control nd supervision over wire ser- n ice news agencies.

Chairman Drive JOIN HOSPITAL AID TODAY The Nation Today By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON, Dec. 1 /P)--The Korean war has now become one ot the most mixed up situations in recent times. Take it step by step. A week ago the United Nations and Korean-Chinese Communists reached an agreement. They didn't agree to stop shooting. They simply agreed on a line-an armistice line--were they'd stop shooting if they could agree to stop shooting. This agreement on an armistice line was the firsf; agreement the two sides had been able to reach after five months of haggling. It was a major point. But it was only one of fcur major points the two sides thought they must agree on before there could be an armistice. So this was the way the agreement on the armistice line went. 1. The line where the two sides face other now will be the armistice line if they agree on those other three points in 30 days. 2. If they don't agree on those three in 30 days, then the armistice line will be drawn wherever the troops face each other when there finally is agreement on those three points, which might be months away. That raises a question: Suppose our troops right now put on a rip- Harley. The dedicatory prayer was led by Elder Berkley Bowman; hymn, "Lead On O King Eternal"; 'benediction by Rev. Paul Fike, pastor of Beaver Dam. Sam's Creek and Edigewood churches. Monday morning witnessed a number of farmers on hand with tractors to remove dirt for the church basement. By the end of the week most of the dirt was removed and the town water line extended to the new Building site. Full-fledged construction on the new church will not begin until spring.

Further, suppose that was accomplished within 30 days and within that time, too, both sides had agreed on those three other points. What then? The U. N. troops would have to give to the Communists all the land they nad captured within those 30 dayjs and draw back to the point where they are now. This week reporters on the Korean front reported a halt in the fighting by both the_U. N. and Chinese troops. The surprised uproar that followed resulted in general denials by the White House and the Army that there had been any cease-fire order. And Gen. James A. Van Fleet, commander of the 8th Army, said maybe some of his troops had misunderstood instructions issued by his headquarters But this siory is simply explaining the one fact: That if the U. N. troop captured any ground from the Communists--and there's agreement on those other three points within 30 days--the captured ground will have to be given up. President Truman said something which is important here in order to understand the mixed-up problem of Korea. He said: "The continued pressure of our forces on the enemy constitutes the strongest incentive for the latter to agree to a just armistice. Any premature slackening of our effort would cost us more casualties in the long run than need be lost." So it seems the fighting will continue, in some form, anyway. There'll probably have to be, judging by the Air Force report of a big Communist attempt at a buildup behind their present line, the present armis*ice line. It's certain the Air Force will COUSIN COY Today Join "Hospital Aid, Inc." '49 Chev. 5- Pass. Coupe "46 Oldsmohile 4-Door Radio, Heater Hydra- Matic '42 Stude. 4-Dr. Champ. '42 Stude. 4-Door Cond.
