NEW PLAN CUTS.' ARLINGTONGASTAX Area Distribution Would Re duce Share From $70,000 to $1,900. BY LESTER N. INSKEEP, Staff Correspondent of The Star. ARLINGTON COUNTY COURT HOUSE, Va„ October 10. According to a report made at a meeting yester day at Richmond of the special com mission that was considering revision of the present gasoline (ax distribution, it was stated that Arlington County would receive but $1,900 yearly as j against the present sum of $70,000 if i the area basis of distribution is adopted. Holds Second Meeting. This commission, which composed of five members of the House of Delegates and three members of the State Senate, met on October 2 and then decided to postpone further action until yesterday at which time the state Highway Com mission presented for consideration sev eral different plans of distribution. Under the present plan the money is returned to tne counties in propor tion to the amount of taxes paid an nually by the county to the State. - SJpce Arlington County is the small est county in the State, although the heaviest taxpayer, it would be left en tirely in the cold if the area plan were adopted, it was said. According to Louis A. MacMahon, Republican candidate for the House of Delegates from Arlington County, who attended yesterday’s meeting in com pany with State Senator Frank L. Ball, Hugh Reid, present member of the House of Delegates, candidate for re election on the Democratic ticket, and William Bragg, member of Arlington County Democratic committee, there were several methods of tax distribu tion suggested at yesterday’s meeting. In addition to the present method and the area basis it was also sug gested that It be considered from a population standpoint and from road mileage. Under any one of these Ar lington County would suffer the loss of a greater portion of Its present rev enue from this source. Informed that there is to be a meet ing In November of the members of all of the Board of County Supervisors of i the 100 counties of Virgtnla for the pur pose of getting their sentiment with re gard to the distribution of the gasoline tax, the commission, at the suggestion of Senator Saxon W Holt of Newport News decided to defer further consid eration of any of the plans until after this meeting, MacMahon said. Statement Issued. In making this decision the following statement was issued: “The commission has an open mind on this question and we do not want any confusion to arise In the public mind to the effect that we have reached or will reach any decision until a public hearing has been held on the matter.” Both Reid and MacMahon have pledged themselves to do everything within their power to prevent any re vision of the present method of distri bution. To this end Reid has made re peated efforts to persuade the Board of Supervisors of Arlington County to take > any steps necessary to protect the inter ests of the citizens of the county. To date, it is claimed, no such steps have been taken. Pohick Fanner Diet. POHICK, Va., October 10 (Special). —Frederick G. Herdel, 88-year-old farmer, died at his home here yester day.

BY GEORGE PORTER. Staff Correspondent of The Star. UPPER MARLBORO. Md„ October i:.—Accepting the recommendations of the Bowie district road committee, the Prince Georges County commissioners have refused to close the county road which crosses the main line of the Pennsylvania Railroad tracks at Arun del station, about a mile north of Bowie. i According to James C. Blackwell, county clerk, the railroad requested the county commissioners to close the road, stating that there was little traffic over it, and that even this would probably be lessened after the completion of the new roa l now being built near Bowie. Viewed as Traffic Hazard. Blackwell declared he “supposed” the railroad wanted the road closed and the crossing abolished because it was more or less of a traffic hazard. Residents of the community admit it is potentially dangerous, being ap proached by a grade on both sides, but state there is no record of serious ac cidents there. The Bowie district road committee, which investigated the railroad's re quest, reported the road is used by a considerable number of persons, who would suffer undue hardship if it were closed. A sand and gravel company near Arundel Station would be “locked lin” if the road were cloMd. according to R. Lee Mulliken, secretary of the committee. Shipping Point. The fact that Arundel Station was a shipping point of some importance was also cited by the committee, which ' i pointed out that this feature would make the closing of the road harmful 1 to the railroad itself. Furthermore, 'shipping business and general traffic on the road is expected to increase as a result of the newly built approach to Lemons Bridge, over the Patuxent River, which will make the road a direct connecting link be tween the territory around Bowie and Anne Arundel County, Mulliken says. ■ He states there is no sentiment in the ‘ community to eliminate the grade ! crossing through an underpass, as traf j sic over the road at present would not [ justify the expense involved. < CHILD DIES OF SCALDING. ■ Lynchburg Tot Falls Into Tub of Boiling Water. : j Special Dispatch to The Star. * ' LYNCHBURG, Va., October 10 Ruby Lee, 2-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R.
