Four Escape Drowning in Bay Accident Three men and a boy, 15, s narrowly escaped drowning in Chesapeake Bay today after their 16-foot runabout capsized ' in rough water. < Rescued after clinging almost six hours to their overturned i craft were two Cheverly (Md.) ] residents—Danny Lane. 15, of 11 Cheverly circle, and Andrew 1 Reinhardt, 39, of 6207 Forest i road—and a Richmond (Va.) resident, John Krevonick, 36. Harry Lane, 45, Danny’s fa ther and the owner of the run about, swam four miles against the tide for help. Ironically, the rescue plane he had sent out arrived half an hour after the trio had been picked up by a boat that was in the area solely by chance. “Our propeller fouled up with the anchor line,” Mr. Lane, who operates his own insurance agency, explained. “In extricat ing it, our anchor line was cut. and we toc£ in from 30 to 4Q gallons of water. “This was Just too much for an otherwise seaworthy boat. We efeing; to its sides for a while, hoping to get help. Sum eral times we spotted b<o passing about 500 yards awM, and we thought. ‘They must we us.’ But they never did. ft “After about two agonizing hours of this, I left the others and swam four miles against the most severe tides I’ve ever seen. I finally saw a small row boat with two elderly men in it, and they took me to shore. “There, I called police, and they sent a plane.” But, before the plane arrived, the boy and two men were taken aboard a boat operated by John H. Clark and Frank Scanlon of Glen Burnie, Md. The rescue took place around Herring Bay. Mr. Lane landed at Shadyside, where the local volunteer rescue squad par ticipated in a search along with Anne Arundel County and State police. "Andy (Reinhardt) actually saved my boy’s life,” Mr. Lane said last night. “Several time: the boy blacked out, only to be held up by Andy.” Area Lawyer Again Heads Alumni Unit Nell Tolman, Washington at torney, was elected yesterda> to a fourth term as president of the Alumni Council of the University of Vermont at Bur lington, Vt.

SEND A KID TO CAMP Julie Needs Trip, And You Can Help Her father’s childhood has cast a long shadow over Julie's life. For her father is illiterate. It didn't matter while his children were small A plumb er, he earned enough to support his family well. Then the children learned to read, and his illiteracy became a torment. Combined with other pressures from his un happy past, it drove him to the refuge of illness. He has not been able to use his arms since his breakdown several years ago, although doc tors have found nothing phys ically wrong. In the meantime his family has been living in poverty Although they now have wel fare assistance, their home is bleak and barren. Ten-year-old Julie is one oi the children in that home T%day she is a rather awkward little girl who has had nc chance to develop the grac< that comes with parental ap proval.

(Since the adoption, British law hive been further tightened to require even Brit ish subjects to be in residence eight months before adoption.) “I left America alone to get our little girl Maeve on Mother’s day, 1957, “Mrs. Barnes re called. “We landed at Idlewild on Father’s Day, 1957.” Both Desire More Both Mrs. Rosenbaum and Mrs. Barnes say they want more children.

The District currently has 145 children in its adoption section, including some already in "trial adoption.” Ready for adoption now are seven white children and 29 Negro children.

( ARLINGTON I COUNTY : Between 20 and 25 babies are 1 being placed annually by the county welfare department and \ the rate of adoptions has 1 shown a slight increase. Welfare authorities said the "black market is siphoning off the available children” in their county and estimated that the number of babies placed ille gally far exceeds the agency placements. Payments to “ baby brokers” reportedly have ranged as high as $3,000. The agency reported the ra tio of applications to the sup -1 ply of babies is 10 to 1 but ' added that if all the children ' were routed through legal ! agencies, there would be ap -1 proximately enough children to ' fill the good applications.

Poll Taken On Replacing McLaughlin Members of the Citizens’ Ad visory Council were canvassed late last week in an effort to head off a reported move to supplant Commissioner Robert E. McLaughlin as president of the District Board of Com missioners. The canvassing, it was dis closed yesterday, was carried out by one of nine members of the council, an advisory group to the Commissioners. It’ was apparently prompted by a re port that Commissioner David B. Karrick is interested in as summing board leadership in place of Mr. McLaughlin, who is currently awaiting Senate confirmation for his second board term. The council member who undertook the canvassing asked to remain anonymous. He told The Star a majority of the council favored Mr. McLaugh lin’s retention as board presi- dent. Edward Burling. jr„ council chairman, reached last night in New Jersey, said the council had no connection with the canvass. He said he had been approached personally by a council member after a Friday meeting, but that the council would take no action in the matter. “It is not in the province of the Advisory Council to have any say in this,” he declared.

Dogs' Best Friend to Bid Goodbye To District Pound After 23 Years By RICHARD O’LONE Star Stall Writer Frank B. Marks, the District’s most militant dog lover, is re tiring reluctantly June 30, with | misgivings about the future of e the city’s dog pound, which he - has headed for 23 years. t Mr. Marks is shy about re i vealing his age, but he feels - he’s young enough to handle - the job of District poundmaster o for 10 more years, if the Dis -3 trict wojild let him. n “There are members of Con n gress who are 85 and 90 and j older,” he snorted, h Mr. Marks is proud of what :t he has done for the pound and i-; is worried about its future un n der a plan to transfer it from ig the jurisdiction of police to the a.

Charles C. Robinson, secre tary of the authority, said Fair- 1 fax attorney Edward Gasson i has been employed to handle i the condemnation proceedings. Mr. Robinson said that since PEPCO is a public utility with condemnation rights of its own, the authority may have to pro ceed through the State Corpor ation Commission which con trols utility firms. Ordinarily, a condemnation suit would be filed directly with the courts. Declines to Sell The authority jvoted for con demnation at a meeting Friday night after Roy Dunn, presi dent of PEPCO, told the au thority that the company is holding the property for its own use and is not interested in selling any of the 887 acres it owns at Great Falls. The park authority now owns eight acres at Great Falls Park and leases about 60 from PEP CO. The authority and the Fair fax Board of County Super visors have tried unsuccess fully for several years to nego tiate a purchase of additional acreage. The county board recently gave its backing to condemnation proceedings. The county board has set aside SIOO,OOO in the 1958-9 budget for land purchase at Great Falls. The authority ex pects to raise another $250,000 through Issuance of bonds. Mr, Robinso nalso said a conserva tion organization tentatively has agreed to put up an addi tional $250,000. The authority plans to con demn all the river frontage from Difficult Run to the gov ernment dam above Great Falls This will include all of the lane between Route 193 (Ole Georgetown pike) and the rivei to the intersection of Route 1 193 and Old Dominion drive The hillside and bluffs abovi ; the present county-owned lam and the present parking lot als< will be included. Includes Canal Locks Mr. Robinson said the 600 acres Includes the historic ca-. nal locks built by George Wash ington and all of the PEPCO tract which should be preserved for scenic, geologic and botanic reasons. Most of the acreage will be kept in its present natural state, Mr. Robinson said. He said that bridle trails and some facilities for overnight camping by Scouts probably will be in stalled. He said that eventually some cabins may be built. The Great Falls condemna tion is the beginning of an over all park expansion program planned for Fairfax County. The County Board said two ■ weeks ago that it intends to I seek Federal funds under the Capper-Cramton Act for de : velopment of stream valleys.

These contrasted withn original city requests of $215 ( million in spending and a Fed- j eral grant of $25 million |i The Commissioners them selves proposed $3,766,000 of the cutback from the original spending request, because of changes in plans. But the re mainder was accomplished by the House unit at the initiative ] of its District subcommittee, headed by Representative Ra baut. Democrat of Michigan. ' The Rabaut unit also set the ; S2O million Federal payment figure. > City department heads on • Friday reviewed the House I 1 committee cuts. At the request; *of the Commissioners they listed items on which they hope ! ,to win Senate restorations. : !These were generally approved.

' The new spending and Fed ‘ eral payment proposals actually 1 are not what the city expects 0 to wind up with, even if the . Senate agrees to them. Pay q raises expected to cost sl2 mil ? lion a year or more are cur -1 rently under congressional con n sideration.

Inspec tor Clarence O. Forrester and Capt. Hyman Goldstein, were convicted today of inducing two policemen to lie in a gam bling trial. A jury of six men and six; women returned the suborna tion-of-per jury convictions in, Baltimore Criminal Court after! deliberating four and a half hours. Judge Reuben Oppenheimer deferred sentencing of For rester and Goldstein pending a motion for a new trial. He set bail in the meantime at $2,000 each and gave them until Mon day to make arrangements for posting it. Forrester and Goldstein were accused of getting two, subordi nates to lie in court in an at tempt to convict a defendant in a numbers-racket case. State’s Attorney J. Harold Grady told the criminal court (jury that the motive for the frame-up Forrester and Gold ! stein are alleged to have en gineered was that Police Com missioner James Hepbron “had put the heat on the rackets di vision. He told them they had to produce.” refused to let them have dogs for torturing," he said. Although he’s leaving his Job in a troubled frame of mind, Mr. Marks has many pleasant memories. "I’ve made thousands of friends throughout the coun try," he said. "I’ve done a lot of business with Senators and Congressmen, and many have commended me for my work.” Just last year, he said, one of his best customers. Repre sentative Frank Boykin, Demo crat of Alabama, purchased about 100 dogs from him and shipped them to friends in hi! home State. Mr. Marks, a native of Balti more, came to Washington ai a young boy. He was a hlghl] successful real-estate salesmar until the depression.

I A-17 will be used for this purpose. But the exact amount to be sought cannot be determined until the pay raises are settled. Some Items Cut Most of the budget cut* volunteered by the city were in capital outlay. Some of these items were dropped because or deletions by Congress itsell from the public works pro gram. One of the latter items was $300,000 intended for planning a new West Municipal Center office building, opposed by Congress. Another deleted item was $1.7 million for stormwater sewers. Schools and welfare institu tions would get part of the extra funds the Commissioners hope to win from the Senate. Details of the restoration re -1 quests will be kept under wraps until Tuesday, however. City budgeting officials com mended the House unit for its * work on the budget, despite I the cuts.
