FIGHT FOR MUDD’S PLACENATIONAL Republicans and Democrats Lock Horns Over Maryland Seat in Congress. Special Dispatch to Tlic Star. BALTIMORE. October 16.—With the death last Saturday of Representative Sydney E. Mudd of the fifth Maryland district and the uncertain outcome of the presidential election next month, the election of a «ucce:aor to Mr. Mudd has become a national instead of a local issue, according to leaders of both parties here. The Republicans yesterday nominated Thomas B. R. Mudd of La Plata, Charles County, a brother of the de ceased member, for both the short and long terms. Charles E. Chance of Annapolis, Democratic candidate, an nounced his withdrawal at a meeting of the Democratic State committee, which thereupon selected Stephen W. flambrill of Howard County to make the race. A full meeting of the Dfm- j ocratio State central committee will be held today to ratify the choice. Coventor at Caucus. A caucus was held by a number of State leaders following the meeting yesterday, which was attended by Gov. Ritchie and others high in the party, at which, it was said, a candidate was selected. While no official announcement was made, former State Senator Stephen W. tiambrill of laurel. Howard Coun ty, a son-in-law of the late Senator A P. Gorman. will be named when the committee meets this afternoon. Both parties are planning a real fight between now and election day, both because of the effect which the election may have on the naming of a Presi dent of the United States, if that be- 1 comes a duly of Congress, and because of the change in the fifth district brought about by the death of Repre sentative Mudd. Democratic hope of winning in the district has been increased, it is said, by the death of Mr. Mudd, who had made his personality felt there. The comparative indifference with which they regarded a normally Republican district is said to have been replaced by a belief that they have some chance to win. For tljat reason, it is said, they have planned to put Mr. Gambrill, who js regarded as the strongest man in the district, for wa rd. Election of Gambrill would break the three-three tie in Maryland’s Rep- j resentatives in the House, thereby j giving the State a vote in case the | presidential election goes to the i House.

Disapproval of the adoption of the "platoon system” In the public schools of the District was expressed by both school officials and private cltlxena at a meeting of the Chevy Chase Citi zens’ Association in the B. V. Brown School last night. Although the as sociation refused officially to go on record regarding the system. Imme diately after adjournment a stand ing vote was taken which showed that only two persons In the- whole assemblage were in favor of Its adop tion. It was pointed out the the system held an especial interest to the citi zens of Chevy Chase, as there had been much talk of Installing It in the E. V. Brown School. Stephen K. Kramer, principal of Central High School, when called upon to express his views regarding the system, said that such a system is now in use in the Central High School, and it is not satisfactory. In enlarging upon this statement he told how the teachers at Central have to teach a part of the students while others are out at lunch. “We begin classes in the morning with about 2.000 pupils.” he said, “and about 11 o'clock another 1.000 come In that have not been to school all that day. We then have to send about 1.000 of the first 2,000 out to eat while we teach the last 1.000. Later wo bring in the 1,000 at lunch and send out another 1,000. Finally, after we have way as far as possfble we have to squeeae in and sit tight during the last hour or so of the school day." Besides-the crowded conditions, he pointed out that with the platoon system, the teacher does not get the close contact with the Individual student which, he. said is essential to the best Instruction. Frank C. Daniel, principal of Tech nical High School, agreed with Mr. BWLDouglas “ •S.’G.’T&’S Shoes BOYS AT $3.50 & $4.00 W. L.

Brown School; Miss M. If. Berry, assistant principal of the same school; Milton Fairchild and others. Miss Frances Fairly, principal of the Dark View School, where the pla toon system is now used, and Col. P. M. Anderson, president of the Chevy Chase Parent-Teacher Association, spoke in favor of the system. In re ply to them, however, school officials and citizens agreed that the Park View School was a fine school, but de clared it is probable that It would be much better if it had a seat for every child and, accordingly did not have to use the platoon system. James T. Lloyd, president of the board of education, and Dr. Frank W. Ballou, superintendent • of schools, were among those present at the meeting. The system discussed Is now under consideration of a special committee of the board of education. Atwood M. Fisher, president of the association, presided.
