Public Meet On Schools Tonight At 8 Long-Range Building Program To Be Taken Up At Frederick High Residents from all sections of the city and county are expected to attend a meeting caiied by the Board of Education in Frederick High School this evening at eigti* o'clock -dst* when a ions-range ; school building prcsra::i wi!! be discussed. Mimeographed copies of the recommendations for school sys- · tem-injprovcmenis made following . a county-wide survey recently wi!! be passed out at the meeting. These wii! include statements of enrollment figures for each school, it is understood. There are two very definite factors affecting the schoo' situation at present. Superintendent of Schools Eugene W. Pruitt said to. day. One is an increasing birth " rate--certain to bring more schol- · ars into the schools--and the ^ec- ond is an increased school population by the fall of 19-58 due to thc addition of the extra '12th- grade in the schools. Both, he pointed out. ·-!! require additional classrooms to take care of the student population. "We I haven't caught up with present- day needs as ypt and .-ow are faced with new needs within a year." the superintendent commented. Invitations have been extended to representatives of many organizations to attend and the meeting is open to citizens. President . George C. Rhoderick, of the Board of Education, will preside and · questions will be janswered. State . Superintendent of Schools Thomas . G. Pullen. Jr.. has indicated that he probably will be ^resent. In a letter extending an invitation to the meeting. Mr. Pruitt said: "The Board of Education. · charged as it is with the responsibility for the administ-ation and supervision of the childrer. in the public school system of the county, is convinced that the w-lfare of ail the children in the county in the immediate future requires very careful thought and attention . from all citizens. The members of i the board are therefore seeking · the advice ana opinions of all , interested citizens to the end that the interests of the schools may be promoted. ; "Because future developments in · the public school program in Fred\ erick county are so largely dependent upon the need for enlarged and ijew buildings and : more f a c i l i t i e s generally, the Board has caused a building survey to be made by outside auth rities. The survey committee has studied the present and future needs of the county from the standpoint of school population and has made c e r t a i n recommendations. The ' Board of Education has not committed itself to these recommendations, nor will it do so until it has made them known to the public generally and sought the advice of interested citizens in all of the county communities.'' London Press Frank In Fear War Between Reds And West London, July IS ¥·--The Lon- uOJ press, surveying the Berlin i-ituation. spoke frankly tuday of the danger of war between Rus" i and the west.

So Jong as the Russians : ema:i obdurate the dangers will mount.

"We are delighted to welcome the American airmen who this · week end returned to airfields i;; Britain." Labor's, pro-government Daily Herald announced, adding"No one on this side of the iron curtain wants war. But. equally, ro one here is prepared to be bullied in dciiancv of agreement:- " The Daily Express noted that "the world slides more, after *v pitifully short an interlude, into ,* situation d-aught \\ith the danger of \\ar " "We must face the fact that war aas once again become a possibility. "" said the conservative Daily Graphic.

Adams, whose husband won S7.300 Saturday night on a radio quiz contest, said today they were turning down the prize because "we're just \\orn out." The attractive housewife said she and her husband hadn't gotten a minute's rest since news of their , good fortune got about. "We don't figure it's worth thc trouble." she said. "Our health won't stand it. so we've decided not to take the money." Adams had indicated yesterday that he would use the which he won on thc Broadcasting System's "Three for the Money" show, to build a new home. But that started a flood of , telephone calls which was con, tinuing today.

Adams had said last night ' he and his wife were still undecided whether to build a home or use the money- for other purposes. ; -_-,. ~t ~ ·* L P · l-f 1"|1fk(~f ^«I ^\ /A if'Ol A -*J-K-'V«- eu? vj Jr\.3- tC/A Heavy Selling Of Stocks Is Due To War Scare Xew York.

V -- A n g r y -outherti Democrats. a welt a* Kc' publican.-., today marked Pre.-idenl Truman as a target for hot criticism i:i the corning special Congress opening on Monday. : Senator McClellan D - A r k made ' it clear that Dixie party members who didn't walk out of the Philadelphia convention, aren't Koiuc along docilely with the President's summer law-making program.) (or ·civil rights measures, inflation con: trol steps and housing and educa- t tion aids. : The Arkansas Senator. who , fought Mr. Truman's nomination but stayed in the party, told a re. porter that unless some intcrnation- . ai developments require conRrcs- ;ionai action, the recall of the lawmakers for next Monday may prove 'tragic." "If thc President's program, a.s , he outlined it to the Democratic convention, is carried out." ?»lc- [ Clellan said, "we will have cither uncontrolled inflation because of ' the government spending he proposes, or a police state. "If there is international emergency that requires action by Congress, then the call for a special session is tragic because it will only ' serve to magnify thc disunity of our people at a critical time ;n , world affairs." : The Arkansas Senator said he . thinks the President's summoning of Congress was "conceived in pol- · itics" and that thc session is likely to "wind up in politics." What direction the Republican · attack on Mr. Truman will take remained unclear. Although some GOP lawmakers have taken the President to task for what they call a political move. · there was no sign that Gov. Thom- · as E. Dewey. the Republican nominee, has reached any strategy ' agreement with congressional leaders. A close friend said Dewey stands ready to cooperate with House Speaker Martin R-Mass. Senator ,Taft 'R-Ohio'i and others in draft, ing a GOP plan of action. Dewey may confer anew with Taft and Martin before the sec- sion opens, but apparently no arrangements have yet been rr.sdc for such a meetinc. The New York Governor was : paid to have no plan to cornc to i Washington himself. ' Herbert E. Browne!!, his cam' oaign manager, will open offices here this week. He probably will · be chief liaison man between thc , nominee and Republican members ' of Concress. ! In addition, two New Vork lawmakers will be generally regarded as spcakins for the Dewey views. . They are Senator Irving Ivcs and Rco. Leonard W. Hall ; Dewey himself is t-aid to believe the Republicans ought to make a . reasonable effort to pass some con' siructive legislation in thc special , sessiori- But he is said to agree with many of thc GOP members that the lawmaking process ought not to be allowed to dras alone all summer. It 15 the New York Governor's feeling, associates said, that in calling Congress back President Truman was laying the groundwork for a campaisn directed almost exclusively at the lawmakers" record rather than at thc Republican nominees or what their platform promise?. A; for the GOP olatform and the -pecial session. Dewey was said to believe that it would mean kecp- :r.S Congress at work until November \n try to write many of "hnsc pledges into lav.

It will IIH-.C ;o t:ut from scratch. This win show what's meant- i Duri:ij; the two-year term of a . Congress, many bills arc introduced. They arc referred to the proper committee for examination. For instance, a bill on labor coos to the Labor conimillcc. If it wants to do something about the bill, the committee holds hearings, brings in witnesses to testify : for or aeainst it. wrangles over it. and FC«i«*rallv rewrites She original bill. Then if a majority of the eom- miitce members agree, the biil is okayed a:id sent over to House or Senate for debate or vote. All this usually takes months of work. · In spite of alt the work, many bills are ignored by the full House and Senate and Concrcss winds up its two-year term without acting on them. No action meant a bill is killed. A bill must be acted upon by the Congress in which it is introduced · or it automatically dies. That happened with the 80'h Congress. Many bills, although the;- received a lot of thought and examination. were left lying around unacted upon when the 80th Congress quit in June. 1 But couldn't the 81st Congress, when it takes office next January, call up one of those rnuch- worked-upon bills and vote on it? No. A new bill, even though identical with one ignored by the 80th Congress, would have to be introduced in the 81?t before action could be taken. And. once it was introduced, it would be referred to the proper committee and probably have to go through the long months of mor.e hearings and wrangling. But that's not true with the special session. Being part of the 80th Congress, it could x-ote right away on the completed bills left unact- cd upon by the SOth Congress . when it adjourned in June. In this way the special session could do a lot speedier work than a brand new Congress. For example: The House approved a bill wiping out all Federal taxes on oleomargarine and rent it over to the Senate for a vote, since both Houses have to approve a bill before it can become law. The Senate went home without acting on it. But. in this special session, the Senate can now call up the margarine bill and vote on it without any delay, if it wishes. The same is true v.-ith a number of other bills left untouched by the 80th Congress when it adjourned. That's whv Mr. Truman said this special session could finish up its work in 15 days, if it wants Jo. But you can bet Congress will take more than 15 days, once it starts.

Juiy !9 ·,!· --The western powers arc expected to reach agreement tiis-s week on an action program aimed at countering the Russian blockade of Berlin with forceful measures on a world scale. A first step probably will be the dispatch of i:ew notes to Mo5- cow from Washington. London and Pan.-;. These may warn the Kremlin directly of asi extremely serious danger of war and try to refute the Soviet arguments in support of, the blockade. Other measures which are known to have been under study include: 1. Curbs on Russian ship movements around the world by closing the Dardanelles. Russia's outlet from the Black Sea to the Mediterranean. '-. A chcv.p-do'.vn on trade between the Soviet Union and the western powers. American commerce with Russia already is curtailed, but from the British particularly the Soviets have been Setting a wide variety of manufactured goods in exchange for foodstuffs and other raw materials. 3. An appeal to the United Nations to deal with the Berlin_crisis. This might be taken before the Security Council at any time or before the U. N. General Assembiy which meets in Paris in September. Such an appeal would have the cffsct of putting Kussia on trial before the world. 4. A direct challenge to the Russia:-, blockade system by ordering either an Army-escorted train or a truck convoy to undertake the trip from Western Germany to Berlin in spile of Russian barriers to any :uch niox'emcnt. So far. officials here have spoken of the possibility of a direct assault on the blockade only as a last ditch measure. Could Mean War If the Russians resisted, the resulting clash could mean war. One of the difficulties confronting the western nations in trying to map out a program to deal with the Berlin situation is that time is running out more rapidly than they had thought it woulc even late last week. The Russian announcement that an increasing number of Red army planes will be making "training nights" in the air corridors to Berlin has created the belief here that the Soviets may be willing to risk war in order to make the city intolerable for the v.-es'crn occupation forces. At the moment top American officials regard the danger of war as extremely great. What-they are uncertain about is whether the Russians--or some dominant faction in the Moscow government--may actually want war or whether the Soviet Union is trying to pull off one of historv's most giga itic bluff?.
