'"There is a bomb set to go off at police headquarters," the unidentified male caller said and hung up. The time was 6:40 p.m. About 150 work in the persons were at fortress-like, 61- year-old structure at the time- most of them in the 4th floor communications center. Emergency units sped to the building and began a' search. At 6:57 p.m. the bomb-- estimated to have contained 10 to 15 sticks of dynamite- exploded in a men's room, destroying several nearby offices and shattering windows in the five-story structure. *%* rAMOUS 1850 ^OBSB*^ AjtCarvecf Generation after generation, more brides and grooms choose ArtCarved wedding rings than any other.

The state also is giving first aid training to 360 toll road employees. mation of an official Democratic ticket at least gets the race off the starting line. Shriver has indicated he will have a decision sometime very soon as to whether he will challenge Mandel, or for mat matter anyone else. But it would now appear that if he decides to enter the Democratic primary it will be too little, too late. Since it was Shriver supporters that recently urged Democratic congressmen to sign a petition asking the former Peace Corps director to serve as head of a committee to elect Democratic congressmen, it is a safe bet that Shriver will bow out gracefully. There has been not one hint of any Democratic support for him from any quarter. Mandel aides have been congratulating themselves on that fact for weeks, ft was, they insist, their behind-the-scenes manuevers that brought all the Democratic factions into the Mandel fold as Shriver procas- tinated, leaving the former ambassador to France with nothing beneath his political feet but air. As for Mahoney, the Baltimore County contractor will undoubtedly pull some blue collar votes from the metropolitan Baltimore area should he decide to run but observers insists that his political star is fast waning. This is 1970, not 1966, when Mahoney was able to win the Democratic nomination by taking advantage' of a bloody four- way party battle. It was then that Mahoney was able to play on the racial fears of the working class with his slogan "Your Home is your Castle - Protect it" In 1966, Mahoney could take advantage of such a campaign, but with Marniers studied conservatism and his recent rapid reaction to violence on the Uni- versity of acat in 1971 or a fears of the ft woiiU seem, be of _ to the class. at this point that MaMKi has the all but locked up. , As for Republican, the only candidate mat appear* to be capable of defeating the incumbent governor -- Rep. Rogers C. B. Union - baa deckled not to run but will seek re-election to the U.S. House. And all afens indicate that the GOP gubernatorial hopeful will be C. Stanley Blair, former see* retary of state for Maryland and until May 31 the top aide to Vice President Spiro T. Agnew. But Blair, despite his brief tenure as secretary of state, is virtually an unknown in Maryland and observers feel that Ms chances of snatching victory from an incumbent Democrat are all but nil, even if Agnew takes an active role in the campaign. Should the Democratic primary become by some miracle a bloody battle similar to the one in 1966, Blair might just edge in as Agnew did. Others on. the Republican ticket apparently will include Rep. J. Glenn Beall Jr. for U.S. Senate and Newton I Steers, the state insurance commissioner, for lieutenant governor. But here again, Mandel has the edge. His is a ticket of incumbents -- one of them a four-term incumbent His slate includes Comptroller Louis L. Goldstein; Atty. Gen. Francis B. Burcha dnd Secretary of State Blair Lee JSf, Who will run for the new office of, lieutenant governor. At the moment at least, the only real hope the Republicans seem to have is the seat now held by incumbent Sen. Joseph D. Tydings. Polls indicate the Harford County millionaire has lost popularity at a steady rate since the last election and could be vulnerable. One of the factors that apparently has hurt Tydings more than any other has been his stand for gun registration. But at any rate, the 1970 Maryland election is off the ground, and should be well on its way in another two weeks. on gJVUMU ·MVf *»··!?"·"·· -" (be street below seemed totally oblivious to the flurry tivity.

And some au western Maryland parents picketed determined^ along the sidewalk because the governor baa refused to intervene to save a one-room school in Dargan. But mostly the crowd listened approvingly if not enthusiastic- ly as Mandel ticked off what he called liia achievements and got in a few digs at the Republican administration in Washington. Ironically, it was mat same Republican administration mat gave Mandel the opportunity to stand where he stood Tuesday with his election virtually assured. For it was in 1968, When Re* publican Gov. Spiro T. Agnew was only halfway through his first term, that he resigned to become vice president of the United States, setting the stage for Mantel's selection by a joint session of the General Assembly to fill Agnew*s unexpired term. For a Jewish boy from Baltimore who began his political career as an unassuming member of the House of Delegates, the sudden thrust from speaker of that house to governor was not an easy transition and it still troubles him at times. 'As a person of modest origins who has *een a beneficiary of the American dream, I consider governorship of Maryland to be the most important office in the nation,** he told the crowd.

UAW President Leonard Woodcock is expected to continue a tradition established by his predecessor, the late Walter P. Reufher, by attending the formal opening of the talks with General Motors on July 15, Ford on July 16 and Chrysler on July 17. Reuther died May 9 in a plane crash in northern Michigan and Woodcock was chosen to succeed him by theUAW International Executive Board May 22. A work stoppage could be disastrous to the automakers in a year when sales and profits .are nosediving. ,, ' The last time a new contract was negotiated during a period of economic recession was in 1958 and agreement was reached without a national strike. 50 S FURNITURE -- TELEVISION--APPLIANCES SHEPLEY'S ,INC.
