A request by Fairmac Corp., McLean Gardens’ new owner, for a zoning adjustment which would legalize, as a hotel restaurant, the : cafeteria now serving the Gardens tenants and residents of the neigh borhood. The specific request here is to extend 75 feet westward a Residential C area strip on which some of the cafeteria is built. 2. A recommendation by the Zon ing Advisory Council that., instead, thp entirp C area be rezoned hs Residential A. This would have the effect of forcing McLean Gardens to run the cafeteria as a “boarding ‘house,” where residents of the de you con SEE ■;" the difference! jWMripk i» You can _ Fy,:l| i\ie difference! *v.,„. -__ ? vj ”*• *—*1, »«*». v^T ' '•: Any way you test them, CARR ’ grahams are better.

Attorney See* "Threat.'* The second alternative also would serve to gag the Gardens’ owners from further rezoning appeals, in the event the commission rules against them this time, the advisory coun cil pointed out. Roger J. Whiteford. Fairmac’s at torney. took sharp exception at yes terday’s hearing, to this latter fac tor in the Advisory Council's coun ter proposition. He called it a "threat" and a “sinister suggestion.” ‘‘It would be almost impossible," Mr. Whiteford told the commission, “to police that cafeteria as a board ing house, to keep the general public Mr. Whiteford said the Gardens’ owners now are making 30 rooms in the cafeteria building available to transient guests, so that the build ing may be classed as a hotel. A hotel may operate in a Residential C area and must have a public res taurant. A boarding house may op erate in a Residential A area. Entirely Within ProDerty. The cafeteria, said Mr. Whiteford, is entirely within McLean Gardens, and no one can complain that their property is affected adversely. The cafeteria is not intended as a com mercial‘restaurant, the lawyer said. It has no sign and does no adver tising. Nevertheless, Mr. Whiteford added, many residents in the area use the restaurant, as do employes in the neighboring branch office of the General Accounting Office. Mr. Whiteford said 1.350 persons in nine dormitories at the Gardens have no cooking facilities, and that the nearest regular restaurant, at Wisconsin avenue and Macomb street N.W., has a seating capacity of 30. The Gardens’ apartment units, housing about 2,100 persons, likewise have limited cooking fa cilities, he added. The advisory couneil, in its report on the case, pointed out present zoning provides for a ‘'commercial service island” at the south end of the development. This area, the council observed, still is unde veloped, but could contain adequate restaurant facilities. A spokesman for the council told reporters the conflict primarily is one between the problems of hand Station ■ thru Sat. / :UU—7:00 A M. |§f & : Learn the new '.b'^^^i I, m *Wi mu: Way ’Sf*^^,***.,* b '* moist, d • u *ter and st;r* fr-* fron% L ^ ^fOin ir\ L •» Until firm t 2 C trm*:n*%Z?’m^ I 4- Cover ... e8~\ *»«« urepa" — Up w,rm , ¥ arm for 10 PRESTO ln I ' I _ i BEST RICE YOU EVER TASTED * | -OR YOUR MONEY RACK! *'-*?- flBK '""■**# ••nofol Foods Minute Rice conies out light and fluffy >' " " \ every time!

"Our concern is not where a cer tain group of people are going to eat today,” he said. “What matters to us is a sensible plan for the future." In its report; the council said its counter-proposal had been made “as the correct zoning plan on the basis of existing construction, and quite frankly as a proper method of per manently removing the issue now be fore the commission.” Other witnesses at the hearing, ranging from a spokesman for the GAO to a representative of the Fed eration of Citizens’ Associations, sup ported the request of the Gardens' owners. Controller General Lindsay War ren sent two representatives to say continuance of the cafeteria as a public restaurant is vital to 1.200 GAO employes who eat there each day. Mrs. Leslie B. Wright, legislative Citizens’ Associations, also indorsed Fairmac’s stand, as did W. Douglas Clark of‘the Northwest Council of Citizens’ Associations. Charles H. Burmeister, Forest* Hills Citizens Association, and Charles G. Lueck, Chevy Chase Citizens’ Association. Ruling on Drinking By Minors Attacked Corporation Counsel Vernon E West’s recent opinion permitting minors to drink in taverns under certain circumstances was criticized by the Citizens’ Forum of Columbia Heights last night as creating a “dangerous moral outlook for teen age boys and girls,” and “leading to delinquency.” In a resolution presented by Ly man F. Kebler, chairman of the Public Safety and Health Commit tee, the group asked that “every effort be made by those in authority to correct the basis” of Mr. West’s decision, or to obtain enactment of "suitable” legislation “for the pro tection and welfare of our children.” Another resolution offered by Mr. Kebler and adopted, asking “con certed action” to eradicate rats, was directed to Charles Luckman ehnfr man of the Citizens’ Food Commit tee, as well as to District officials. The measure cited large amounts of food-ruined or destroyed by rats. “Rats have run us ragged for a thousand years, and they’re going to continue.’’ Mr. Kebler declared. •‘They’re going to over-run us after awhile If we don’t destroy them." Sparrel A. Wood, past president and charter member of the forum, who plans to move from the area soon, was elected to a life member ship in the groiip for his “long and faithful’’ service. A nominating committee includ ing MVs. Alice Heimer, Mr. Kebler, William J. Oates and J. W. Cran ford, was appointed by C. J.
