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.

First Used Car Auction Held
Since War Is Buyers' Market
It was buyers’ market yesterday
at the Washington area’s first large
scale postwar a immobile auction.
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.”
