New*. Fr*4«tirk, 9M.. Taw4ar. Jmljr 2*. 1S4« Pennsy And City Agree On East St. Meeting in special i-ession Monday afternoon, the Mayor and Aldereoen officially received the agreement from the Pennsylvania Railroad providing for the ultimate extension of East street northward from Eighth street: and also discussed the resignation of Officer William Royer as a member of the Police Department. The executive session was then followed by group visits to several sections of the City, which culminated sn new traffic regulations, criers for weed killing, etc. Action Wednesday Night The Pennsylvania R a i l r o a d agreement will be executed by the Mayor and Aldermen at the regular meeting on Wednesday night. it \\as announced It provides foi right-of-way on East street, between Eighth and Market streets- at the roac Intersection immediately south of the Odd Fellows Home Acquisition of this right-oi-way looms largely in plans for the extension of '.he East street thoroughfare, long figured as a vital road Jiiik in the effort to ease north- *uth traffic congestion in Frederick. The resignation of Officer Royer. :t was announced, was due to his ··tearing appointment to a post at Camp Detrick, for which he made application some time ago under the veterans program. Rumored as possibly being due to internal dissension within the Department, the city officials summoned several officers in an informal inquiry and then discounted such reports, a city official said. Rover's resignation becomes effective July 26. it was said. Leaving City Hall, the Mayor nad Board personally investigated traffic conditions at Seventh and Bentz streets, two thoroughfares wh-ch have experienced a tremendous increase in traffic flow since alternate routes have been designated to relieve downtown main artery congestion. Complaint? regarding the intersection resulted in the decision Monday to ban parking on all four approaches for a distance of 50 feet back on both sides of each of the two streets. The Mayor and Aldermen also inspected East All Saints street near the Carroll street intersection and as a result ordered weeds cut in the abutting area When questioned as to removal of the B. O. R. R. tracks on All Saints street between Market and Carroll, the officials replied that they're «ti!l awaiting action by the railroad, which had previously indicated it was up to the city Service over the rails ·was discarded months aso. when the passenger station on South Slarket street *.vas abandoned, and facilities substituted at the freis'nt terminu? oft Carroll street. Several other matters came before the Board for consideration, announcement concerning which is expected at the meeting on Wednesday. City At-orney "Richard E Zimmerman was authorized to proceed with certain action relating to disposition of the parking lot problem on South Court street, especially that area on which is located the present service station facility. The Aldermen al?o discussed to considerable lenct't the - situation recently disclosed at the municipal airport, resulting from faulty runway areas not be:ns properly filled at the inception of the project.

Program For Schools Aired Before 500 The efforts of the County School Board to fet the County Commissioners to raise enough money to start some needed school buildings rn Frederick county got a "heated" public airing in the SS-degree audi- - torium of tfce Frederick High School Monday night. Approximately 500 residents of the county turned out for the session in which the School Board had the first-hand support of Dr. Thomas G* Pullen. Jr.. State Superintendent of Schools, and County Commissions Samuel H Young and Robert R. Rhooerick took th* floor at m- ter% - a!s to quote budset Ss'jro and people Briefly the sciiou! authorities outlined the need of additional building* and equipment needed to meet within the next few years a demand for g' eater expected because of birth. the addition of another Krade raisins the curriculum from 11 12 years, ih*- advance in the compulsory Khool ace from 14 to 1C years and '.he reduction :n :ize of classes Commitments They said they are committed on!y to increased facilities at Thur- ir.osH. Middletown and Liberty. A delegation of-^ibout fif'.y J-CM- deiits of Emmitiburg District presented an array of jpeakers to stres s the need for .chool improvements there and to denounce any attempt to close thoir high school. Both Dr. Pullen and the local authorities again told the Eminits- burc residents that they have no plans for closing the Emrnitiburi; school nor do they have funds in Mght to make any improvements there. Sta'e Senator Edward D. Storm summed up the situation near the close of the two and a half hour session by advising those who want the school improvements t? brinu pressure on the County Commissioners for a bond issue and those who are opposed to bring equal pressure on the Commissioners to prevent a bond hsue. It i a matter of those who want their children to have the best educational opportunities, the State Senator said, against those who don't want the tax rale raised. The burden of such a bond issue, he pointed out. would fall "'most exclusively on the real estate of the county. Audience discussion rntv'ed from taking the children out of the basement at Sabillasville school to providing new toilet facilities at Walk- ersvtlle school A Brunswick resident wanted to know why it was proposed to mov« the elementary school to the present high school site. Ross V. Smith, a former public school teacher and prominent Thurmont resident presented the resolution that was passed, and Edward F Holter. Master of the State Grange and a former public school teacher, of near Midd!etj\vn. seconded the motion. The meeting went on record favoring an advisory committee, composed of one member from each county district and the local members of the legislature, to consult with the Board of Education for the purpose of working out a school building program. Howard Damuth. 3 former member of the School Board from Thur- niont. said residents have been promised school improvements there for the past ten years. He asked those in attendance to give Thurmont support for needed school improvements. Gives Assurance In his remarks. Dr Puller, assured the Emmiisbut'E x'roup and others that it is not the intent of the State and local school, authoi Hies to close any school until the parents themselves ar« satisfied that their children will receive greater benefits elsewhere. He pointed out that counties with far less resources than Frederick are going ahead with school building plans to meet future needs. Garrett County, he reported, has a one and half million building program underway ana ilarford County is spending fcur million. Montgomery and Prince Georges Counties are investing five million each in school buildings and Baltimore City is financing new schools to the extent of 32 million dollars. Anne Arundel is investing ?' s million in school buildings and improvements, he said. He als-o pointed out that" of Frederick County's present school budget, over S800.000 is coming from State funds and little more than S500000 from County funds. Baltimore City j» paying moit of that difference, he .--aid. explaining that the State Board catches plenty of criticism for that Cop«:s of a ^yIlopM^ of a recent s-urvey of school needs in t reder- ick County v. ere distributed !o lho.»e present for iludy. Mapi \s ere also exhibited to show the residence of each public school pupil i«i Frederick County, to emphasize the need for additional facilities in borne localities rather than in others. George C. Rhoderick. Jr., president of the School Board, presided and outlined the purposes of the meeting. Sujx-raiteiidesU of Schools Eugene W. Pruilt reviewed the synopsis on the school buiSd- ing survey and expressed a wi!l- mgncss to appear at any public meetings to discuss the survey and needs of various communities. Samuel C. Hays opened ihe discussion for the Eminitsburj; group and was followed at intervals by his brother. Dr. Harry W, Hays. Hev. Philip Bower. George L Wilhide. John Baumgardner and Carson FraiSey. A resolution was read, signed by leaders of most organ- i.'ations at Emmitsburj:. protesting the closing of the Emmitsburg High S'-hool. Mrs. L. R. Schoolman asked \\ hy kindergartens have not been considered in the survey and Superintendent Pruitt explained that improvement at the top has been undertaken and any additional cost · was considered not feasible at this time. Isaac Nicode:nus. Liberty, voiced objection to consolidation of · schools, and L. V. Biser. Jefferson. " urged establishment of a permanent elementary school center there. Ernest Stephens raised a question as to whether schools in Frederick City should be centered in the northern and northwestern sec- · lions. It was his understanding, he said, that most children of school age live in the southeastern section of the city. , . Mr. Holier raised the point and · was assured by school authorities that he was correct in that funds · supplied by the State to aid in building schools would revert o the Stale treasury if the county did not avail itself of the assis- · tance. i Mr. Frailey raised the question · as to whether the group could pass · a resolution and the presiding officer said he supposed any group . co»!d pass a resolution. The president of the School Board said he cuessed the board would have to take the initiative in seeing that Ihe authorized committee is named i and functions There was no indication when the committee may be selected but it was suggested that district members be named at community meetings to be called.

July 19 iJf}--A flight of Russian Yak lighter planes arrived to Berlin from the Soviet zone of Germany today and did a bit of j acrobatics as they passed over the ] British field in the German capital. A British official said Russian authorities had notified the four- power air control center sometime i earlier that the Yaks would be fly- i ing into the Berlin area- Ke said I they did not interfere with today's Allied airlift operation into the I Soviet-blockaded city. j There were two versions of what j the Russian pilots did as they pass! ed over Gatow airport, the British ' base. | Made Pass At C-54 ; American officers reported that I a formation of 12 Yaks appeared j and that two of them swept dov/n I to "buzz" the field. They also i said those two fighters then zoom- 1 ed upward and made a "belly | pass" at an American C-54 trans- I port plane which was passing the I Seld at that moment. ' The U. S. officers expressed the | opinion that the Russians had mistaken the British field for their own which is only about six miles away. They said they thought the pilots were "out-of-town boys" coming into Berlin Irorn the Russian zone. A British o^icial said that at 1 p. in.. Greenwich Mean Time tt a. m. Eastern Standard Time*, between eight and 10 Yaks flew over Gatow "doing rolls." He said a short time i before a single Russian fighter , Hew "in the vicinity"' of an American C-54 Skymaster which was ! passing the field. He said it did .not make a mock attack on the U. S. plane. . T» Investigate British authorities reported the incident ;o a Russian representative at the air control center who ; was quoted as saying. i "I'll look into it."' j In Air Force language, to "buzz" . a Seld is to sweep down at high speed, cross the field at extremely . low altitude and then zoom again after passing the airdrome. ; When a fighter plane makes 3 "pass" at another airplane it flies ' directly at it in a mock attack and then turns away from it suddenly. . A "belly pass" would b« this j maneuver by a fighter «ppro«ch- jing another plane from beneath. j The term "rolls," as used by j the British official, means the well- i known aerial maneuver, barrcl- ! rolls.

AXY C OR S ROUL FILM 35 DEVELOPED * PRINTED 31 HOUR SERVICE ALLEN'S .-=· July 19 A' --Even toy manufacturing has its international complications. Santa Claus got into the act today with a toy chemical set containing uranium ore. That's the stuff which produces atomic iMicrpy--and ' the" uo:;ib. But the Hagerstown manufacturer of the new toy hastily assured jittery Americans that the Russians v.on't 'ind a :ic*.v stockpile in their Christmas stockings. "You can't send :hem to Russia." said Vice President M M. Hanson of the Porter Chemical Company. Hanson isn't sure the Russians are interested in his toy. But he's suspicious. Recently the firm got an order from Finland. Turned it down, said the vice president. The order looked JUhy lo him. Nervous fathers and mothers also got soothing words from Hanton. "There's no way v. hatever a child can hurt himself." insisted Hanson. "Why. he can even swallow these pieces of uranium with no more effect than if he swallowed coal dust." 'Editor's note: What's good or bad about coal dust. Hanson would not say. The vice president explained a child can't cook up a Hiroshima in the bathtub. The four experiments in the set just offer a passive insight into the action of atomic energy. For instance, radioactivity working on a photographic film leaves images "like shooting stars." Besides .he low «jrade of uranium ore used wouldn't even make a geiger counter wiggle. The ounce or so in the set is in a natural itate. not relineo as necessary to set pure uranium and make a bomb. j Hanson believes his company is the first to receive peimission for commercial use of uranium ore. The license was issued, he aid. by the United States Atomic Energy Commission. KEYSTONE PAINTS When «he best costs ;a little whv compromise on Duality? Complete line exterior. Interior finishes.
