REALTY LICENSE
LAW PROPOSED
Maryland Bill Would Keep
Check on Brokers and
Salesmen.
Special Dispatch to Tha Star.
BALTIMORE, March 16.—Licenses
for every real estate stficeroan and
broker and the creation of a State Real
Estate Commission to collect the license
fee are proposed in a bill introduced in
the State Assembly and sponsored by
the Real Estate Board of Baltimore.
The bill proposes the creation of a
commission to be named by the govern
or. Each members must have been for
five years prior to his appointment en
caged as a real estate broker or sales
man, and each would be paid $lO for
rach day he spent in the work of the
commission.
The bill is similar to the one propos- ,
tng the licensing of Washington real:
estate brokers and salesmen which has
been before Congress.
Must Prove Reputation.
Under the provisions of the bill no j
license would be granted to a real es
tate broker unless he has a reputation
for honesty, truthfulness and fair deal
ings, and none to a salesman unless his
prospective employer certified to his
honesty, truthfulness and good reputa
tion.
“The revocation of a broker's license
shall automatically suspend every real
estate salesman's license granted to any
person by virtue of his employment by
the broker whose license has been re
voked pending a change of employer.”
the bill says, in addition to providing
that when any salesman Is discharged
his license shall become null and void.
License fees under the bill are set at
sls a year, and if a real estate firm has
more than one office, an additional fee
of $1 a year shall be imposed for each
branch. •
Would Publish List.
Causes for which licenses might be I
revoked by the commission under the i
bill include:
“Making any substantial misrepre
sentation; making any false promise of
a character likely to influence, persuade
or induce; pursuing a continued and
flagrant course of misrepresentation, or
making false promises through sales
men or advertising; acting for more
than one party in any transaction with
out the knowledge of all parties to it;
accepting a commission from any one
except his employer, who must be a
licensed real estate broker; failing to
account within a reasonable time for
any money coming into his possession
which belongs to others, and paying
commission to any person for services
performed in violation of the act.”
Another provision is that the com
mission must publish once a year a list
of all persons it has licensed as brokers
and salesmen and a list of all those
whose licenses have been revoked.
It is provided that any person violat
ing the act w-ould be subject to a fine
of not more than SSOO, or imprison
ment for not more than six months,
end if the violator Is a corporation the
fine would be SI,OOO.

By the Associated Press.
BERLIN, March 16.—The German
press last night quoted Leon Trotsky
as saying that Bolshevism saved Russia
from becoming a colony of the United
States. In his interview with the Ger

he still believes that Bolshevism was
the salvation of Russia, and said:
“Bolshevism is Russia's self preser

He expressed the opinion that there
was more material for world conflict
than ever before and that “the ascend
