THE NEWS, Frederick, Maryland JMe M. IfN Roads Board Takes Action By LARRY HESLIN Assistant Editor The owner of a grove of apple trees on Hays Road, who was accused of letting his trees' branches grow out into the roadway, explained his side of the story at the Roads Board meeting last night At what is getting to be a regular feature of the monthly board meetings, the issue was aired again by Paul Kline, who owns trees which protestors at two previous meetings complained were jutting into the road, causing damage to vehicles and making passing difficult. 'Kline said that he has trimmed the trees back, and brought a delegation of his own to back him up on his statement that the section of the road near his trees is the most passable stretch of the wayfare. He promised the board that he will ensure that the trees don't grow back into the road. He charged that the only difficult passing on the road was where the original protestors have let bushes grow into the way. The presentation was received well by the board, who got a report from the staff that the trees had been trimmed. A delegation from the Mt. Bethel Church on Ridenour Road asked approval for a plan to relocate a segment of the road at Foxville. The relocation is necessary so that the church can complete their building construction on an annex. The church has agreed to certain stipulations, such as requiring them to handle grading, clearing of trees and dedication of the relocated segment to the county. A motion to approve the re- quest passed unanimously. A request for the roads board to endorse the county Master Roads Plan by Lawrence Nelson, assistant planner, passed at the meeting, not on the first try, however. A first motion to pass the request was defeated, 3-1. One of the members was absent for the first vote, but when he later arrived, Charles E. Collins, chairman, called for a motion to reconsider the vote. It passed. Then, after a motion by Clarence Hahn, the endorsement was passed. Also passed was an approval of the priority list for the master plan roads. On the problem of trash blowing from uncovered trucks on their way to the landfill on Reich's Ford Road, county engineer William Pout said that the former county attorney had made a suggestion that an ordinance be drawn up requiring cov?rs. This way, he said, vio- Ijs+Oi-s could be prosecuted. Fout will meet with new county attorney Tom Glass to discuss the suggestion. Glass said that he believes the covered trucks are required by state law already. A sidelight -- the same law is said to also cover gravel- laden trucks. . .they must be covered. It was brought out that Frederick County does not presently cover its gravel trucks, and therefore might be in violation of the state legislation. Among other business, the posting of speed signs and "children at play" signs was discussed and will be studied. Numerous requests have reached the roads board for such signs now that schools are closing for the summer and children will be outdoors on their vacation in greater numbers. Budget Approved For Brunswick * By MARGOT MOR Staff Writer h * BRUNSWICK -- At a meeting · * of the town council last night, the * budget for July 1, 1970 through -" June 30, 1971, in the amount of $323,268 was approved. The - $1.77 per 100 tax rate will con- " tinue through fiscal 1971. ^ D. V. Cooper's bid of $13,468 "to rebuild city park facilities was accepted, provided the completion date is agreeable to the council. Mayor quested Jess D. Orudorff re- the council to repeal town ordinance 221 and substitute ordinance 283, section 13 to update regulations concerning loitering. A delegation of citizens utilizing Blue Lines Buses to get to , and from work at National Geo. t graphic, GEICO, and National In. institutes of Health, complained ...about the fact that a second bus schedule was to be discontinued - - July 1, and renewed their expressions of dissatisfaction concerning the service -- or lack of service -- provided by Blue Lines. They said that the buses pro- Deeded to Washington after bringing them to work and were then used for sightseeing tours which " 'frequently made them as late as "* 45 minutes from the return trip to Brunswick. ' ' Mayor Orndorff assured them that he would write a letter re': garding the deficiencies in ser- ' vice to the Maryland Public Ser* vice Commission. ' Voter registration for citizens 21 years of age prior to elec- . lion day, Tuesday, Aug. 4, will ^ ' be held June 15-30, from 8:30 "" · to 4:00, Monday through Friday, ' and 8:30 to 8 p.m., Saturday, June 21 and 28. In order to qualify, one must have one year's ^ residence in Brunswick and have lived in the same ward 30 days. The offices of one councilman ', each in the first, second and - third wards for terms of four years, are at stake. Registrar Betty Fites will accept qualified registrants at the Clerk's Of. fice in Town Hall at the hours indicated above. . Mrs. Mary Margrabe, one of . Brunswick's busiest citizens, suggested that some action be taken to make the community more aware of the pollution per. il. She pointed out that it might be wise to start from the bot- - torn up to decrease the hiatus be; tween the rank and file and the ' higher echelons of government .'which are moving toward far- · reaching goals. ' She suggested that the man ; in the street is still indifferent * toward such problems as air and .' water pollution, solid waste dis- * posal, and such difficult matters · as the proper disposal of DDT land other insecticides the indestructibility of which make them ; a major disposal headache. Per; haps, she suggested, a regular r pickup day for these compounds I might be a good idea. * It was reported that recently 'eight state dump trucks were I required to remove debris, tin 'CMS, bottles, and other junk 'from approximately one mile dis- ·ttnce of Souder Road between i Petersville Road and Ninth Ave- »nue. · Mayor Orndorff proceeded to · appoint Mrs. Margrabe as chairman of the Brunswick Anti-Pollution Committee, over her vi- ME WS P 4 PER fl R C H1V E ® « _ , gorous but good - natured protests. The recent heavy rainfall brought a disaster in microcosm to Brunswick. A 60-foot long tube, five feet in diameter, under the football fieldacrossfrom City Park, had become clogged solid with debris and overflowed, making a sea of mud out of the field. Emergency replacement will costthetown$2,037.50. For those residents, of Brunswick still confused about garbage pickup, the schedule is repeated: Monday, Third Avenue- Tenth; Tuesday, Third Avenue- Virginia Avenue; Wednesday, Virginia Avenue-West; Friday, commercial pickup. This schedule enables more manpower to be freed for street repair. Citizens are urged to place garbage in proper metal containers. Dr. Maxwell Weisman, director of the Division of Alcoholism Control* commended Frederick County's strides toward controlling the disease, at the one-day seminar on alcoholism held at Winchester Hall last week. Most communities have excellent resources available to help die alcoholic, said Willard Foster, industrial consultant on Dr. Weisman's staff. However, community attitudes often label the alcoholic "degenerate" and do not recognize that he is suffering from a disease. That attitude often limits treatment attempts, he said. In such cases, he added, the alcoholic's feelings of failure MORNING WALK - Sen. Charles McC. Manias Jr., walks to breakfast Tuesday with actor Hal Holbrook who is in Washington making the rounds with the senator in preparation for a political role.-(AP Wirephoto) Drug Abuse Policy Is Adopted From The Montgomery Bureau ROCKVTLLE -- A four point policy respecting drug abuse was adopted Tuesday by the Montgomery County Board of Education in recogmzation of "drug abuse as a serious community, national, and world-wide problem which contributes to the deterioration of our society." The policy, the Board said, "is to establish a climate within county schools that is conducive to the nonuse of drugs." This climate is to be achieved through the establishment of: (1) "Effective counseling programs for students and continuing programs of instruction Girl Listed As Critical Elizabeth Cunningham, the two-and-a-half-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Larry Cunningham of Emmitsburg, was listed in serious condition last night by hospital authorities at York General Hospital. The child fell out of a third- story window at her home in Beegle Apartments at 7 p.m. Saturday. She was taken to Annie Warner Hospital and later transferred to the intensive care unit at York General Hospital. White House Aids Worried Husband PETERSBUBG, W. Va. (AP) -- When his pregnant wife was seriously injured in an automobile accident, John Urey took his fight to save her life to the White House. The 32-year-old Petersburg man was driving his family car en route to Elkins for a summer vacation when it plunged over an embankment 12 miles from here about 1 a.m. Saturday. He received minor injuries. His son, Brian, 2, was thrown from the car, and was hospitalized but with less serious injuries than his mother. She was trapped in the vehicle and suffered severe injury to her spine. Urey crawled from the vehicle, located his son on the darkened hillside and made his way to the highway where he tried without success to flag down cars, Finally he stood in the middle of the highway and forced a truck driver to stop. He gave his son to the driver, telling him to take the boy to a hospital and send an ambulance back. Nearly an hour later, an ambulance arrived and found Mrs. Urey near death from loss of blood. She was taken to Grant County Memorial Hospital here and doctors said she had to have the attention of a neurosurgeon if she were to survive. They advised against transporting her by ambulance on a four-hour trip to Washington, D.C.- the nearest center for the needed medical attention. Urey and his father, Joe Urey of Elkins, made a series of telephone calls in search of a helicopter. They had about given up tope when Urey finally told his father, '-I'm going to call the White House." He did. He asked for the President's military aide .. . Gen. James D. Hughes, he was told. Hughes came to the telephone, heard Urey's story, and said, "I'll send the President's private helicopter over there." The general dispatched the President's helicopter to Quantico Marine Air Station, but a officials mileage check with military about the terrain and near this eastern West Virginia community forced replacement of the craft with a larger military air ambulance. That craft flew here Saturday evening and took the 27-year-old Mrs, Urey to Georgetown University Hospital in Washington for emergency treatment Her condition was serious Tuesday. Hospital officials said they are now trying to avoid surgery if possible because of her pregnant condition. Urey said Monday, "I'm proud to live in a country . that will help you when you really need it The President has selected people who are not afraid to make decisions . .. and are willing to help." so DINETTE SETS 38 Brighten Up Your Kitchen With A New Dinette From INC. 50 South Market OPEN EVERY N1TE 'TIL 9 P.M. on the nature of drugs and their proper use and on the deleterious effects of drug abuse on the mental, physical, social, economic, ' and legal status of the individual.

The joint Board - County Council 17-member committee looked in depth into the problem of drug use generally and also made use of an extensive survey made in the county's secondary schools. The self-report survey of five percent of high school seniors showed that they admitted that almost one out of five have tried or used marijuana and about one out of three said they were likely to try or use it in the future. The survey showed that students in the affluent suburbs were increasing their use of marijuana in contrast to a generally small use of heroin. Frederick Commended For Alcoholic Disease Control and hopelessness are reinforced fcy persons he turns to for help. Seminar participants listed 'Ten Commandments* for dealing with alcoholics: 1-- Know your own attitudes toward drinking and inebriates; 2--Recognize alcoholism in other crises, such as accidents, child abuse, and non-support; 3- Confront the alcoholic with his behavior and his alcbolism; 4- Realize that alcoholism is a family illness, affecting everyone in the family; 5--What others think important to the alcoholic, may not be to him; 6--Don't expect to argue an alcoholic out of his illness; 7--Help him establish short- Planning Group Defers Decision The Frederick County Planning and Zoning Commission Tuesday deferred decision on a request by American Mobile Homes for final design approval of the proposed "Friendly Village" mobile home parkpend- ing the submission of a staff report on mobile homes Thursday. The recommendation of the planning staff was for approval of the design of the 49.5 acre development to be located south of the U. S. 15 - 70S interchange. Planner Lawrence Johnson told members of the commission that the design calls for 324 sites, with a minimum lot size of 4,000 square feet, exceeding the ordinance requirements. Acreage totalling 7.12 acres will be reserved for green space and park facilities. Commission member George Speer suggested that if approval is given, a stipulation be made that dense plaintings be placed along the U. S. 15 frontage to camouflage the development from the highway. County roads engineer William Fout criticized the "turnarounds" at the ends of the dead end courts as a potential snow removal problem. He noted that these T-shaped ends are smaller than regular cul-de-sacs and would prove difficult to remove snow from. Designer for the applicants, Robert J. Banks, noted that the courts would handle only a small volume of traffic and pointed out that snow removal could be accomplished, though not conveniently. Banks stated that sewer service will be supplied the development through a connection with the U. S. 15 line currently being built by the Metropolitan Commission and that a temporary treatment plant opposite the eventual Metropolitan Commission treatment site will be built. This temporary plant would be removed when the Metropolitan Commission plant is completed, he said. Banks also reviewed plans for construction of a surge pond to alleviate drainage problems in the area of the mobile home park.
