County PTA Urges $2,200 Minimum Pay Increase of the State minimum salary for teachers in Maryland from the present $1,500 to $2,200 was urged in a resolution adopted by the Mont gomery County Council of Parent Teacher Associations, Leslie M. Abbe, council president, announced yester day. The council, which represents 31 schools throughout Montgomery County, also favored a reduction in the size of classes to 30 pupils per teacher and State aid to counties fcr school construction. The resolution on building con struction was in support of a por tion of the Sherbow Commission’s report calling for a building incen tive fund. This commission, ap oointed last year by the Governor, to study redistribution of State funds, recommended a tax by each county of 5 cents on assessed valua tion, the fund thus raised to be matched by the State up to $10 per pupil. The council's resolution, how ever, called for a sum of $20 per pupil, Mr. Abbe said. Under the Sherbow report, Mont gomery Countv would obtain ap proximately $175,000 for building, whereas the council's resolution would provide double thaft amount. Total cost to the State/would be $1,500,000 on a $10 per pupil basis and $4,500,000 on a $20 basis. The council also indorsed the bill introduced in the Maryland House of Delegates by Mrs. Leona Rush of Colesville last week, calling for abolition of the position of super visor of school property in Mont gomery County. This would open the way for appointment of an assist ant county superintendent of schools in charge of school property, Mr. Abbe said. The council opposed the bill intro duced by Mrs. Rush calling for ap pointments to the board of educa tion in Montgomery County by Cir cuit Court judges. Opposition was based on the fact that the Maryland PTA Congress is about to set up a committee to make a thorogh study of appointments. Mrs. Austin S. Donaldson, council membership chairman, reported a total of 9,000 members, which, in proportion to population, is ahead of the highest State averages. Screw in Woman s Lung For 17 Years Removed By th« Associated Press / BALTIMORE, Jan. 25.—A half inch rusty screw imbedded in the lower left lung of a young'West Vir ginia woman for at least 17 years was removed yesterday by a special ist at Mercy Hospital, attaches re ported. The operation was performed by Dr. Waitman F. Zinn, a broncho scope expert, on Mrs. Myrtle Money penny of Camden, W. Va., and re quired less than 10 minutes. It was performed without an anaesthetic. She was X-rayed for tuberculosis recently, and the screw was dis covered. She was unaware of its presence. Tiny wire-operated forceps were inserted through the bronchoscope, and extending far beyond it, were guided into position by an assistant who watched the operation through a biplane fluroscope, which gave the position of the screw and the for ceps from two angles. [ Mrs. Moneypenny was expected to return to her home today. Admiral Miller to Speak Rear Admiral H. B.

Used cars, once as precious and as scarce as mink coats, were with drawn from sale because of low offers in some cases. A half dozen or more cars, ranging from 1941 to 1946 models, were not bid on at an. An unusea Frazier was withdrawn from the sale when no bid higher than (1,750 was heard. Best price offered was for a 1946 Mercury 4-door sedan which went for (2,200. The sale was held by the Washing ton Auto Auction. It started off rather enthusiastically. The garage where the sale was held was crowded with nearly 1,000 persons. Mothers and lathers had their children with them and some ol the smaller tots were hoisted up on parents’ shoulders lor a better view. ° A 1931 Hupmobile coupe started the sale. Prom $10, spirited and last bidding soared by fractions ol a dol lar up to $20. It was sold for that price to Elmer Holley, of Atkinson, N. C. Mr. Holley, beamed at his bargain. He said he could sell it back home for "at least $100.” But he said he was going to tow it "to be sure it doesn't fall apart on the way.” Neil M. Woodcock of 1211 Ver mont avenue N.W., then paid $475 for a 1938 Oldsmobile sedan. He said he too would take it to North Carolina for resale. By midaftemoon interest waned. The crowd thinned out. Auctioneers were withdrawing from sale more cars than they were selling. Spokesmen for the auction firm, however, said they saw good tidings in the drop in the used car market. It’s a buyer’s market now,” said one. “Used cars were overvalued by the OPA. Once used cars get back to prewar values, cars will begin to sell much faster than they have in the past.” CONVERSION TYPE OIL BURNERS H. C.
