Southwest Up As Board Topic Southwest Washington rede velopment questions will be prominent on the agenda for the National Capital Planning Commission meeting tomorrow and Thursday. Commission Chairman Har land Bartholomew conferred to day with Presidential Assistant Sherman Adams, after meeting yesterday with George A. Gar rett, former Ambassador to Ire land, whom President Eisen hower requested last March to spur agreement on a workable program. Mr. Eisenhower wrote to Mr. Garrett as president of the Fed eral City Council in expressing a direct, interest in the South west redevelopment plans, which have been in the mill for several years. Suggests Conferences He suggested that Mr. Garrett undertake to confer with the ap piopriate agencies in an effort to bring about agreement. One big problem pending in the plans is the location of the Smithsonian Institution’s pro posed new National Air Museum. Smithsonian officials have wanted the museum building at the head of the South Mall, proposed in the Zeckendorf plan as a broad entranceway into the new Southwest between Inde pendence avenue and Washing ton Channel along Tenth street S.w. Will Get Reports on Studies Tomorrow the commission will get reports on school, police, fire, street, utilities and shopping center studies for Southwest. A major question under study is whether a retail shopping area, as now planned in Area B of the redevelopment project, should be eliminated from it in favor of a morp concentrated shopping center outside the area, which would serve the entire Southwest.

Dr. Harold Kennedy, county health officer, said he hopes the program can begin early next week. He said the county ex pects to receive enough vaccine for 16.000 shots within a few days <rom the National Foun dation for Infantile Paralysis. Permission to give the second shots was granted by the State Health Department after mem bers of the Fairfax County Med ical Society voted two to one in favor of administering the vaccine this summer. In a tele gram sent yesterday to Dr. Rob ert C. Hunt, president of the society, the State Health De partment said it bowed to the sentimdht of the society although the State agency decided two months ago not to continue the Salk program this summer. Would Be First This Year The vaccine will be given to 14,000 Fairfax children in the first, second and third grades who received the first Salk shots this spring and to 2,000 children who were given shots in 1954. Fairfax County will be the first Virginia jurisdiction to admin ister the second Salk shots this year. / The county has recorded 22 polio cases and one death from polio so far this year, compared with only two cases at this time last year. Although no cases have been reported since last Wednesday, health department officials said this was no indica tion that the high incidence rate this summer is slacking off: Gamma Globulin Now Given The health department now is giving gamma globulin injec tions in the drive to keep down the number of cases. So far approximately 13,200 children from 6 months to 6 years have received the serum and addi tional clinics are scheduled daily through Sunday. State Health Commissioner Mack I. Shanholtz said permis sion probably would be given any ; other county or city desiring to go ahead with the Salk immu nization program this summer. ; | : Final OK Near For Turnpike RICHMOND, Va.. Aug. 2 <A>). i —^The State Highway Commis sion is expected to give speedy approval Thursday to %, pro > posed route for the 867 million • Richmond-Petersburg turnpike. 1 The route was approved yes terday by the Richmond-Peters ! burg Turnpike Authority. Un ' der law, it must be approved by ’ both the authority and the 1 commission before construction can begin. The superhighway will cost < *67.5 million, making it the ■ largest and most costly single ! nlghway project in Virginia. • Its closest contender will be > the SSB million Hampton Roads . bridge-tunnel project, now under construction. It will also be the first major ■expressway of its type to pass through a large Virginia city, 1 and will be the longest stretch of limited-access highway in ' the State. 34.8 Miles Long 1 The highway will begin just north o( the Richmond city ' limits, near the intersections of ! U. S. 1-301. and its southern 1 terminus will be 34.8 miles south, ■ some 2% miles south of the Pe tersburg city limits. It will proceed through Rich mond, east of the main business district, cross the James River ion a new bridge, proceed south through Chesterfield County . roughly parallel to U. S. 1. enter the eastern portion of Peters burg over a new bridge across 1 the Appomattox River and then 1 join U. S. 1 south of the city. At no point will the turnpike have fewer than four lanes, and at some points It will be six lanes wide. The route will pass near the main business districts of both Richmond and Petersburg. Ear lier proposed routes that would have bypassed the cities drew strong criticism from merchants who complained that their busi ness would suffer greatly. Bonds Will Be Sold The next step for the turnpike authority, after approval of the route by the highway commis sion. is the sale of some $67,- 500.000 worth of bonds to fi nance construction of the road. The bond sale will get underway by mid-September. Repayment will be over a 40-year period from toll revenues. As soon as money is available from *hc sale of bonds, the au thority will begin acquiring land for right-of-way. Completion of the huge project has been tenta tlvely set for 1958.

District Readers Yearn for Facts And Crockett Yarns, Library Says A preference for fact over fic tion—even for the young fry. who idolized Davy Crockett marked the reading tastes of patrons of the District Public Library during the last fiscal year. “International and national I affairs, significant local Issues, the desire for self-improvement !and the problems of everyday Hiving motivated the quest for information.” the library re ported in a reading analysis to jday. Altogether, during the year ended June 30, there were 2,065,- 675 books borrowed from the Public Library, an increase of ,49.939 over the previous year. While their elders sought more knowledge of the tension areas of the world, of United States foreign policy, politics, American history and anthro pology. Davy Crockett and the West mapped the conspicuous new trend in children’s reading. "Nothing has ever rung in our ears with such vehemence as the cries for Davy Crockett from all ages and both sexes.” said one children’s librarian. Daniel Boone, Too But the library added that boys and girls also .were willing to read of other frontiersmen, especially Daniel Boone, "who was, until recently, their favor ite pioneer hero.” The influence of television, movies and radio was apparent also in many requests for An dersen’s “Fairy Tales,” Verne’s “Twenty Thousand Leagues Un der the Sea,” “Petei Pan,” Gra ham’s “Wind in the Willows,” “Aesop’s Fables,” Doyle’s “Sher lock Holmes” and "Men of Iron,” by Howard Pyle.

U. S. Court Denies Union Has Right to Audit Firm Books RICHMOND, Aug. 2 VP).— A Federal appellate court said here yesterday that if unions were permitted to audit the books of firms it could result in unions using a refusal of wage increase* to demand disclosures of highly confidential Information by man agement. The United States Fourth Cir cuit Court of Appeals denied (he petition of the National Labor Relations Board to enforce a board order which found Truitt Manufacturing Co. of North Car olina guilty of unfair labor prac tices in refusing to permit the union to audit the books of the firm. Since Truitt was bargaining with the union at the time of the disagreement, they were not guilty of refusing to bargain in good faith, the court said.

B Latham Attacks Building of Road To Shop Center $60,000 Job Misuse Os Public Funds, Delegate Asserts STEVENSVILLE, Md.. Aug 3 V P). —Delegate James C. Lath am. Democrat, of Talbot haa added more wood to the fire that has been burning briskly under the Btate Roads Commis sion for some time now. ■Mr- Latham, a former State trooper, charged yesterday that State construction of a $60,000 service road from the eastern approaches of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge to a Kent Island shopping center is a “piece of manipulation and misuse of public funds.” The Eastern Shore Delegate, who had indicated previously he was lukewarm about the idea of investigating the roads commis sion. said he now believes there should be such a probe. Wants Legislative Group “It should not be a study by the Commission in State Pro grams, Organizations and Fi nance (Green* Commission ap pointed by the Governor,” Mr. Latham said, but a egislative group with power to subpoena I and the necesstu) funus to han dle the investigation.” The shopping cents i to be serviced by tnr road was de veloped by a corporation headed by David M. Nichols, a former member of th: roads commis sion. Herschel H *llen, nvad ol the engineering firm which served as consultant or me bridge con struction. reco, amended the service road be built to remove what he called * traffic hazard. But Mr. La'nam said: “This shopping centei is IV 2 miles east of the Bay Bridge. It is incon ceivable that any traffic hazaid could affect the bridge or should be paid for from the bridge reve nues.” News Articles Recalled Gov. McKeldin requested the study of the roads commission by the Green Commission after newspaper articles dealt with administrative irregularities in the roads commission and with speculation in land lying along the rights of way of proposed highways.
