WASHINoVo^f^Ni a|c|nITyJ Jj I JjU WASHINGTON, D. C. SOCIETY AND GENERAL NEWS TUESDAY, MARCH 7, 1944. Alexandria Vote On Council Setup May Be Changed Clarke Amendment Would Postpone Referendum to April * The referendum, originally sched uled for March 28 to determine if Alexandria shall retain its ward system of government or change to an at-large council, will be post poned to April 25 if an amendment to the bill is adopted by the State Senate. W. Setden Washington, Alexan dria Delegate, sponsored the original bill at the request of a group of Alexandria citizens, and added an amendment, following a public hear ing in the House Committee on Counties, Cities and Towns to pro vide that voters who qualified for the November election of 1843 could vote, as well as those on the present list. The amendment was offered to meet objections of the oppostion who claimed that delayed tax bills would prevent a large number of residents from voting. The Senate Committee on Coun ties, Cities and Towns reported the bill out, but yesterday Senator An drew W. Clarke proposed the amendment postponing the refer endum to April 25 in order to com ply with the legal requirement of printing the ballots 30 days before the election. The amendment, which has been approved by Mr. Washing ton, has not been acted on by the House. Mr. Clarke said yesterday that the State Attorney General had given the opinion that in the event the referendum changes the form of government, at-large candidates for the general election in June may file 30 days before the election in stead of the required 60 days. He also stated that candidates for election as ward councilmen, who will be nominated in the Demo cratic primary April 5. will not be considered nominees if the refer endum changes the form of govern ment, and will have to file again if they wish to run at-large. The present form provides for six ward councilmen and three at large; and the proposed new form allows a seven man at-large council. Under the provisions of the bill, the three at-large members would complete their terms which expire in Sep tember, 1946, and four at-large members would be elected in June for three-year terms.

'Blessed Events' Broadcaster Tells of Own 'Blessed Event' Mrs. Nora Lamborne. shown broadcasting from her bed in Alexandria Hospital yesterday. With her is E. G. Michel, engineer for the program. —Star Staff Photo. “It was just four hours ago that I held my new baby in my arms for the first time . . Thus Mrs. Nora Lamborne, who broadcasts a daily “Blessed Events’’ program over Station WWDC, open ed her broadcast from a bed in Alexandria Hospital yesterday. Nurses had been bustling in and out of the room all morning as Mrs. Lamborne composed her talk to expectant mothers, but they ran to radios in other parts of the build ing to hear the young mother broadcast. Mrs. Lamborne, wife of Malcolm Lamborne, jr., of The Star staff, was propped up in bed, facing a microphone on the table before her. Mrs. Lamborne had planned to broadcast from the hospital the day the baby was born—just to show other young mothers how simple it ail was—but the stork had other plans. Baby Richard McKenzie Lamborne was born early Saturday. The program is broadcast daily from Monday through Friday. Three weeks ago Mrs. Lambome confided to her radio audience that she was expecting her own blessed event. She promised to tell them all about it and stdrted yesterday with a set of helpful hints from the hospital bed, punctuated by her own reactions. "To me,” she said, “this is one of the wonder moments of a lifetime— with a strange mixture of joy and pride and humility and complete thankfulness that the long-awaited baby is finally here and that he is all right in every way.” She told the expectant mothers how to tell when the baby was about to be bom, told them why it was im portant to obey the doctor's orders and when they would hold their babies for the first time. The broadcast was piped to the studio from the hospital room. Mrs. Lambome was completely at ease more so than the radio engineer who sat with her in the hospital room, listening to her description of labor pains. He’s a bachelor.

O'Conor Special Session Starts Work; White Named Speaker of House < By the Associeted Press. ANNAPOLIS, Mar. 7.—The for malities of organization out of the way, the first special session of the Maryland General Assembly since 1937 set to work today on soldier vote legislation and extension of the teacher bo nus. The House and Senate Judiciary C ommittees called a joint hearing at which Attorney Gen eral William C. Walsh explained the provisions of the soldier vote bill, already ap proved by the John s'. White. Maryland Legislative Council. State Budget Director Walter N. Kirkman outlined the administra tion-sponsored teacher bonus bill at a meeting of the Senate Finance Committee. Gov. O’Conor, in a message de livered in person after the Assembly convened last night at 9:41 o’clock more than an hour and a half be hind schedule—urged that the ses sion be kept brief and businesslike. "A businesslike and relatively short session would be in keeping with the times,’’ Gov. O’Conor said in asking the Assembly princiually to approve the soldier voting and teacher-state employe bonus bills. 166,774 Marylanders in Service. Disclosing that 166,774 Marylanders were serving in the armed forces, the chief executive said. “The first and compelling reason for conven ing this extraordinary session * * * is to do simple justice to the thou sands of Maryland citizens of voting age who are now in the armed forces.’’ A heated argument about the terms of a resolution to limit the introduction of bills at the session prolonged the Democratic caucus and delayed the formal opening of the Legislature. White Named Speaker. Delegate John S. White, Demo crat, of Prince Georges, 1943 ma jority leader, was named Speaker of the House, succeeding the late Thomas E, Conlon, Baltimore. The Democratic House caucus left the selection of the majority leader to Mr. White, who named Delegate Jphn c. Luber of Baltimore to the post and to the chairmanship of the Ways and Means Committee. Senate Democrats elected Senator James J. Lindsay, Jr„ Bkltimore, to the presidency to succeed Arthur H. Brice of Kent, resigned. Senator John B. Punk of Frederick, who nominated Mr. Lindsay, succeeded him as majority leader and Finance Committee chairman. The Republicans in their caucus elected Senator Wilmer Fell Davis, Republican, of Carolina Senate minority leader, and Delegate J. Milton Dick of Allegany, House minority leader. The Republican caucus urged re peal of the declaration of intentions act and opposed terms of the ad ministration's teacher bonus pro posal. The Republicans favored continuation of the bonus payments, but suggested that the State bear the entire cost and that the county governments be relieved of any fur ther participation. Seven Bills Introduced. In all, seven bills—three in the House and four in the Senate—were introduced during the brief session which followed the Governor's mes sage. The soldier vote measures, pro viding for absentee voting by service personnel and for the printing of absentee ballots, were introduced in the House along with an ad ministration bill to clarify the pres ent law governing commitment of insane persons to institutions. The Senate bills offered the two soldier vote measures, the teacher bonus bill and a fourth offered by Senator Clarence Newsome, Demo crat, of Kent to establish a liquor dispensary system in Kent County.

RICHMOND, Va„ Mar. 7.—The complicated problem of extending the voting privilege to Virginians in the armed services and the work of completing the record-breaking budget bill claimed a major share of the attention of legislators today in the fast-waning hours of the 1944 General Assembly session. Three war voting bills, one the Weaver Senate bill and two others to broaden provisions to include an “armed force poll tax fund” and to allow voting for State and local offices as well as national, were set for a special hearing today after Gov. Darden advocated their pas sage in a special message. The three measures,, which the Governor said he believed “will ef fectively provide full opportunity to members of the armed forces to vote in all elections to be held in Vir ginia,” differ to some extent from the bill sponsored by the American Legion and passed unanimously by the House. Written Application Required. Under the new proposal, a written application is required of the would- j be voter for payment of his poll taxes and for registration. The House bill would provide automatic payment of all poll taxes for the servicemen. The Senate Privileges and Elec tions Committee arranged a special hearing today on the bills. The House, meanwhile, received a House joint resolution requesting the Federal Government to give earliest possible attention to adoption of legislation to provide counties, cities and towns with compensation in lieu of taxes lost by reason of Federal acquisition of Virginia property for war purposes. The sponsors, Delegates J. May nard Magruder, Arlington, and G. Alvin Massenburg, Hampton, cited the report of the Conservation Com mission in 1943 that the Federal Government had acquired 8,172 acres in Elizabeth City County, or about one-sixth of its area, and more than 3,000 acfes in Arlington County, rep resenting about one-fifth of the county. « Teachers’ Pay Resolution. The Senate received a resolution sponsored by Senators Harry C. Stuart, M. M. Long, J. D. Hagood and Maitland Bustard which would request the localities to Increase wherever possible the salaries of school teachers from the additional $4,000,000 being appropriated to the cities and counties. The resolution was referred to committee. “Although the counties and cities are not required by the acts appro priating” the additional $4,000,000 to the localities "to expend same for the purpose of increasing teach ers’ salaries,” the resolution said, "yet the governing bodies of the counties and cities have the power and authority” to do this. The resolution also said that "such additional appropriations to the counties and cities have been made with the hope on t: ■ part of the members of the General Assembly that their said governing bodies, in recognition of the paramount im portance of the public schools, may find it consistent with the public in terest in their localities to use same, or a large' part thereof, for suchi salary increases." The House adopted a resolution calling for appointment of a seven man commission to study the ad visability of a sales tax and the method of distributing the proceeds of such a tax for the benefit of schools and the relief of real estate taxes. Delegate John B. Spiers, Radford, shepherded the resolution through the House and explained that it called for the commission to report by October. The resolution calls for three men to be appointed from the House, two from the Senate and two by Gov. Darden. The House also adopted Senate joint resolutions providing for a study by the Legislative Advisory Council of industrial development of Virginia after the war and pro viding that Congress be requested to allow local governing bodies to dispose of war emergency housing projects. Chairman Aubrey G. Weaver of the Senate Finance Committee said the budget bill would be reported today and that the committee had rejected the Caudill amendment to increase from $900 to $960 the State aid per teacher unit for the second year of the next biennium. The committee worked intensively over the week end to complete its work on the appropriations measure and bring it to the floor of the Senate. Civic Meeting Postponed The election meeting of the Fair lington (Va.) Civic Association scheduled for tomorrow at the Fair lington Administration Building has been postponed until 8:15 p.m. March 15, J. E. Schwent, president, announced today. Post Office at Forest Glen Closes After 60 Years' Service The Forest Glen Post Office will close today after 60 years’ service. Since October, the office has been operated as a branch of the Silver Spring Post Office, and residents of the area will continue to be served from that station. After the closing of the National Park Seminary, 'which was taken over by the Gov ernment as an annex to Walter Reed Hospital, the revenue from the Forest Glen station was cut too much to continue it as a separate office. The post office is still on the site where it was built in 1883. but the original building burned a few years after the World War. At that time the post office was moved into an adjoining building, but it was re located after the new building was erected. Residents of the area recall that in past years the mail bag was thrown off the train at the adjoin ing station. The postmaster would take out the Forest Glen mail and a carrier would take the bag on by 1 a horse-drawn, two-wheel cart to the stations at Plyer, Wheaton, Lay Hill, Norwood and Sandy Spring. When the roads were too bad. the carrier would take the mail on horseback. John Hunter of Silver Spring de scribed the first mail carrier, who held the job approximately 20 years. "If he liked you," Mr. Hunter said, "he would ask the postmaster to take out your mail and then hand it to you on his way, to save a trip to the post office. I used to meet him on the road when I was a little boy.” Mr. Hunter remembers the time he blew the dinner horn as the carrier passed, scaring the. horse so that it ran away. The next postman, he said, was a colored man named George Washington. There were nine postmasters at the Forest Glen station altogether. George Peter, Edwin B. Flack, Oliver R. Harr, William P. Miller, George M. Wolfe, John T. Culver, Charles W. Miles. Robert Conroy and Mrs. Ruth P. Frey, who served from Feb ruary to October last year. M. U. Tests Eggs for Air Travel In Plan to Build Flocks Abroad William Christopher, American Airilnesagent^heck^a control unit which will accompany a shipment of 15 dozen eggs to the West Coast and back to the University of Maryland, where Dr. Morley A. Jull, poultry husbandryman, will determine if eggs for hatching purposes can be flown to liberated coun tries. Just how effectively poultry flocks in occupied countries may be re habilitated by air transportation will be decided within the next few weeks by Dr. Morley A. Jull, pro fessor of poultry husbandry at the University of Maryland, and Amer ican Airlines. The experiment already is ulder way, and 15 dozen eggs are now being flown to Los Angeles, where they will be reloaded on an east bound plane and flown back across the country to the university to be placed in an incubator along with a test setting for hatching. At each scheduled stop on the trip airline officials will make certain observations of the shipment, as out lined by Dr. Jull. When hatching time comes, poultry specialists will know if eggs for hatching can be snipped by air transport. The only bar to shipping eggs by plane at the present time, Dr. Jull said, Is the popltrymen do not knww What effect altitude and barometric and temperature changes during flight will have on their hatching qualities. Explaining the reasons behind the experiment, Dr. Jull said that to achieve maximum production, eggs must be placed in incubators within 10 days after they have been laid. It is obvious, he said, that the air plane presents the only method of transoceanic shipment that will in sure delivery within this period. Dr. Jull, in a recent rehabilitation proposal for occupied countries, pointed out that poultry flocks offer a quicker source of meat than dairy herds, hogs or sheep. He recommended establishment of com munity hatcheries, utilizing agri cultural co-operative organizations which existed in most occupied countries before the war. These would be set up with Government assistance and supervision where necessary. Since the distance the eggs will be shipped for the test is about equal to the air distances to most of"the occupied countries, Dr. Jull said that if the experiment is a success it will open the way for expanded activities for both the poultry in dustry and the air lines, and at the same time will offer valuable as sistance to the occupied countries.

Plan to Expand Cemetery Hit By Campbell Member of Arlington Board Insists Bill Is Not War Measure Edmund D. Campbell, Arlington County Board member, attacked the proposed expansion of Arlington Na tional Cemetery at a House Mili tary Affairs Committee hearing to day as reflecting only “the deairs of the National Park and Planning Commission to place Congress and Arlington residents in a strait jacket as far as any future develop ment of a large portion of Arlington County is concerned." The bill appeared to be “under false pretenses as a war measure,” he said. Declaring the real purpose of the bill was “not to provide additional burial ground for men in the armed services,” Mr. Campbell said that Fort Myer, the Navy Annex and permanent homes and apartments stand in the area which would bt acquired in the bill. “Not even the National Capital Park and Planning Commission will seriously contend that Fort Myer will be turned into a cemetery,” Mr. Campbell said. Purchase Called Preferable. He said he believed the naval annex, which houses approximately 5,000 employes, will probably remain there and be used for office build ing purposes “as long as any of us in this room are alive.” In connection with the condemna tion of private property, Mr. Camp bell said it would be far better for the Government frankly to provide for the immediate purchase for con demnation of these lands if they are so badly needed. Mr. Campbell condemned the course proposed by the bill permit ting residents to remain until actual need arises, as a “blight laid on a thriving area." Stating that Arlington Cemetery was adequate in its present boun daries for some years to come, Mr. Campbell said the bill appeared to him to be under “false pretenses as a war measure," inasmuch as ha did not believe graves actually were to be extended along the Potomao flats in Virginia to the river banks across from the Lincoln Memorial. Others Will Testify. Other county men scheduled to testify are: Lawrence Douglas, Commonwealth attorney; Frank L. Dieter, planning commission er; Paul Hill of the Chamber stoner; Paul Hill of the Chamber of Commerce, Charles A. Toone and Thomas Broyhill of the Board at Trade, Charles S. Cobbins and Albert A. Carretta of the Civic Fed eration and Mrs. E. E. Odum of the Organized Women Voters. The group met yesterday with Representative Smith, Democrat, of Virginia to map out opposition to the Senate-approved bill proposing annexation of 118 acres of private and Federally owned Arlington County land. Eighty one acres of privately owned land in the plot lie largely between Fort Myer and Lee boule vard, an area overlooking the Po tomac. said by county officials to have the greatest potential value of any land In the county. Strong opposition to the move by government and civic officials prompted Mr. Smith to ask recon sideration of the bill by the House Military Affairs Committee, which already had approved it.
