TEX PAGES PRICE-- THREE CENTS CAA To Send Men To View City Airport Will Meet With Local Officials Monday; May Waive Certain : Compaction Needs Representatives of the Civil Aeronautics Administration are expected here Monday to meet \vith the city .officials and other ^interested parries concerning the possibility of waiving certain compaction requirements on Runway 3 at the Frederick airport, where some soft spots have developed. Mayor Lloyd C. Culler, disclosing the forthcoming meeting, said today thai he has written a letter to Joseph W. Moit. Jr.. district airport engineer of the CAA outlining the problems that have arisen in connection wi:h the soil compaction. fi The letter says the contractor for the clearing, grading and paving contract at the airport. T. Edgie Russeli. of Frederick, is unable to meet the compaction specifications on Runway 3. i Compaction is a technical term for the bearing power of the soil, it was explained here*. The specinca- tioas require a compaction of 95 per cent for the top nine inches of the sub-grade. Runway 3 is in a fill area made in 1946. It is a mixture of possibly four different ·'type soils. So far. the letter says, one-half of the compaction tests pass and the others vary from S5 per cent up to passing. On Wednesday. ,farther tests were made "by a consulting engineer representative in an effort to determine how io obtain compaction results. The compaction was worse after the test was made than before. "To date." the letter says, "we ,;have removed and replaced sex-en odd thousand yards of unsuitable material and have used approximately 900 tons of stone dust for stabilization which in total amounts to some S10.000 additional contract cost. We could continue this method of meeting compaction requirements except for the fact that we do not have sufficient funds to meet the extra cost involved which would be considerable for an- area 100 feet wide and 3.000 feet long. We only worked the k soft soots to spend the additional S10.000." The letter says Mr. Russell, after failing to get compaction on a section of Runway 3. decided the same would hold for the whole runway due to similar soil conditions and engaged Dr. Walter C. Boyer. of Johns Hopkins University, to make an inspection. Offers Solution Dr. Beyer's report, which v.-as included with the letter, said the , primary solution and probably the * most economical from the viewpoint of future maintenance, is complete removal of fill material and its replacement under careful control. "In addition the sub-base and base course should be laid prior to surfacing. This solution is presented as the only method of assuring low maintenance." An alternate solution, he reported "should include removal of evident areas of failure." This system, he indicated, would yield rea- 'sonabie results "but will probafalv entail high maintenance costs." The letter from the Mayor said consulting ensineers reviewed Dr. Boyer's test, did not agree with all statements made therein -and maintained comoaction could still be obtained to the required 95 per cent except for evident soft spots." '·Now since our consultants are unable to tell us or show us how to obtain the reauired compaction, please consider this our formal re- ?-;?uest to you to -.valve the 95 per cent compaction requirement for Runway 3 and the previously filled portion of the taxiway. We do not have ihe fund? necessary io remove the entire runway Sli and replace it. For your information the runway surface does not weave tinder loaded' trucks. All soft spots will be removed as they appear and we believe we have most of those removed already." The letter adds that the cont-v:- -*· tor has had no trouble in meeting compaction requirements in the area he hss graded under thc contract and asked early decision since Russell will be through paving Runivav 1 in about three workins: day?. There has been r.o trouble on the latter runwav.

Oil Tanker Is Damaged TM By Flames Fire Breaks Out On Vehicle Near West Friendship Considerable damage was done to a Standard Oil Company tanker carrying a cargo of gasoline about 7.30 o'clock this morning when the brake-lining of the vehicle reportedly burned out. causing it to run off to the side of the highway on the Srst hill west of West Friendship and catch afire. Clerk James S. Hall, of the Randallstown State Police barracks, said that circumstances surrounding the mishap were not available. The name of the operator of the tanker was unknown at the local office of the oil company since the cargo, en route to this city. ori?inated in Baltimore. The under portion of the vehicle was thought to be damaged greatly by fire but li'.tle damage was caused when it ran off the h i j; h w a y. Some of the cargo was reported saved through the efforts of the West Friendship ana Sykesville fire departments which were called to the scene. A wrecking crew and another tanker were to be sent out by the Standard Oil Company in Baltimore early this afternoon, it was understood, to right the burned vehicle and salvage the remaining gasoline. It was also said that the gasoline which was spilled on the highway and in an adjoining field later caught fire and finally had to be extinguishc-d by the firemen. The top and sides of the gasoline carrier was also reported damaged bv Sre. The lire? were burned off the vehicle and will need replacement. At the time of the accident the highivav was reported clear and drv. ,, A: the same time, i: \\as learn- · ed that the commission has award- ed-a- con tract to T. Edgie Russell.- of Frederick, for the construction of 3.375 miles of the River Road in Montgomery county. The con: tract is in the amount of S277.742. The Route 40 relocation contract is a continuation of what even' tually will be a new road from ; Frederick to Baltimore. A dual ' highway extends, or is being built. . from the Baltimore city line to , Pine Orchard. Surveys are continuing from West Friendship to" ward Ridgeville. It is understood that complete construction plans for the five-mile P i n e Orchard-West Friendship stretch are ready and rights-of- I way are now being negotiated . i Survey 240 Also It was also learned that approximately 27 per cent of the survey being made for a relocated Route 240 from Frederick to Brink in Montgomery county has been finished but no plans submitted as yet. This route will provide a new modern highway into Washington. The route will tie in at Brink with the recently improved road from Brink to Gaithersburg. This Route 240 stretch had been one of the worst on the road. It is now the best for smooth travel and there appears to be sufficient right- of-way to extend the width to at least three full lanes in the future. The Russell contract award had been delayed pending approval by the Public Roads Administration and the Montgomery County Commissioners. Clearance came this week and the job is now ready to start. It embraces grading, drainage and surfacing of 3.375 miles Philadelphia. July 23 · I---Henry _. and when, he thought prices A. Wallace comes to town today to . finally had climbed too high.

July 23 .¥--A prediction that the special session of Congress will last no longer than a month and produce few--if ar.y-- new laws came today from a ranking Republican leader in the House. Outlining what he called his party's "don't-get-excited" strategy. this GOP spokesman said the lawmakers may call it quits within three v. eeks of their reconvening next Monday. If an;- bills do get through, he told a reporter privately, they may include some sort of Federal aid for education--"about a 50-50 chance"--and one or inore civil riahts proposals. This leader said it :« very un- hkeiy tSst housing or anti-'r.fja- ;ion measure? will be brought out *"or formal debate, although there rray be .some further committee discussion?.

To Exhibit Machinery At Local Fair , Implement Dealers ; Assn. Announces i Plans For Display « · It was announced today that the ; Implement Dealers Association · composed of dealers from Frederick and adjoining counties, has worked out a satisfactory agreement with the Frederick County Agricultural Society whereby the dealers will put on a display of farm implements at the Frederick Fair which is to be held October 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. and 9. Ciyde O. Koons. former president of the Implement Dealers Association, said the dealers, who arc about forty strong, expect to concentrate the display of machinery in one area and make it one of the finest exhibitions that has been shown at the fairgrounds in some years. Arrangements are also being made for a large disolay of ros- ehirjery in the annual Cavalcade, on ".he race track ir. fror.t of the Grandstand. Koons said. It is hoped 'hat with the help of the manufacturers the dealers will be able to display a complete line of farm machinery, cut the uncertainty of production may interfere.

Satellite Leaders May Be Dropped Soviet Russia Is Reported Preparing For Purge Washington. July 23 ·'.T'.--Tn the midst of the Berlin crisis. Russia was said today to be stepping up pressure on her satellites to hand over power to more ruthless Communist leaders. Diplomatic authorities said reports indicate such stalwarts as Hungarian Deputy Premier Malthew Rakosi and Czechoslovak President Klenient Gottwnld may be headed for ultimate discard-if they escape a crackdown like the . Cominforrn's effort to oust Marshal Tito of Yugoslavia. . Their error, in Moscow's eyes, is j that they arc deemed y tco moder- i ate and. like Tito, too nationalistic. Rakosi. authoritative reports indicate, is suspected of trying to play a double role as a loyal Hungarian who seeks lo temper Communist party edicts yet ease the hardships of social revolution. He was in the forefront of last year's coup which resulted in the ouster of Fcrcnc N'agy as Premier and Nagy's self- exile to (he United States. In Czechoslovakia, the roundup last week of 71 persons who were accused of taking part in what was described as an American-supported plot against the new Communist refe'Ime was viewed here as the start of a ruthless purge. Officials familiar with Prague developments look for transfer of control by the end of the year to ; a. sroup considercd a ready to carry out party orders without compromise with non-Communist Czechs.
