Jan. 14.—A bill which may set off a furor in the General Assembly over higher education is scheduled to be introduced next week by Delegate Edna Cook, Democrat if Montgomery. Mrs. Cook’s bill would take the State teachers colleges away from the State Board of Education and set them up as separate institutions. It also would create a Council on Higher Education to set policy for all the State colleges and universities. The' legislation may renew the bitter battle which started when the gubernatorially ap pointed Warfield Commission recommended a year ago that the teachers colleges be made branches of the University of Maryland. The Warfield Commission recommendations were bitterly assailed by the Board of Edu cation and State Supt. Thomas G. Pullen, jr, but were ap plauded by the University of Maryland. Tawes Asks More Study Gov. Tawes said last winter that he agreed with the princi ples of the Warfield Commis sion recommendations and in dicated he would ask the Gen eral Assembly to put them into effect this ypar. But in the face of strong opposition from the Board of Education and the . State Teachers Association, the Governor referred the matter to the Legislative Council two months ago for further study. Mrs. Cook said she is neither in favor of turning the teachers colleges into University of Maryland branches nor of keeping them under the juris diction of the Board of Educa tion. She said they should be made liberal arts institutions with emphasis on teacher training. Her bill would create a gov erning board—to be known as the board of regents—for each of the five colleges. The boards would “be appointed by the Governor. The State superin tendent would be an ex-officio member of each board, a pro vision that probably would not set well with those who want •o uivorce the teacher colleges entirely from the Department oi Education. The Council on Higher Edu- which Mrs. Cook’s bill would create would be com posed of 22 members represent ing the University of Maryland and all State colleges; two from junior colleges; two from the Board of Education, and the State superintendent. Opposition Seen The Board of Education likely would resist this effort to take away the teacher colleges from Its jurisdiction. The Uni versity of Maryland probably would be against creation of a council which could make pol icy it would have to follow. Mrs. Cook said her bill is aimed at achieving a “co-ordi nated” program among all In stitutions of higher education. She said she put the State superintendent on the council and as ex-officio member of struck. “You’ll have to wait!” But the Reno's fourth child, a 5 pound 10 ouftce son, refused to wait.

Some people in the western 1 reaches of Maryland, which are ; far from the university, would like to see the conversion ac complished. Proponents want to see what kind of support it might receive before making a • move.

Harry A. Boswell, jr., com- , mission chairman, said in a : letter to Maurice H. Stans, director of the Bureau of the 1 Budget, the Maryland commis sion requested “that no action : on this matter be taken with- ; out . . . full consultation with the State of Maryland.” Mr. Boswell said that ele- i ments “of the District Govern ment have indicated no objec- : tion to the designation of parts of the Potomac River basin as a national monument pro vided that the designation is so worded as to permit even tual development of the Poto- i mac with regard to water supply.” “We feel that this does not take account of our objections because such a limited provi sion takes no account of pos sibilities of industrial develop ment or other recreational possibilities in the Potomac River basin,” Mr. Boswell said. State Scholarships Maryland examinations for State scholarships will be given for Prince Georges County students on February 11 at Bladensburg Junior High School. Testing will start at 9!30 a.m. for students competing for teacher education and State senatorial scholarships. Exami nations also will be given the same day at centers throughout the State. THE SUNDAY STAR WasMngten, D. C. January 15, 1961 Ban on Night Driving By Youths to Be Asked Montgomery County Juvenile Judge Alfred D. Noyes says he will ask the Legislature for a law to prohibit most Maryland 18-and-17-year-olds from driv ing at night. He said such a law would help to improve the traffic sit uation and *aid in curbing crime, “It is seldom that a 16 or 17- year-old committing a delin quent act is not in an auto,” he declared. “This law would have a tendency to curtail such acts.” The proposal provides that most youngsters in that age bracket would be able to drive at night only if accompanied by a licensed adult motorist. Some teen-agers, including 17- year-olds who have passed driver education courses, would be exempted, however. Judge Noyes said his pro- New Water Tank Set For Bradley Hills A new 2.6 million gallon wa ter storage tank wil be erec ted in the Bradley Hills area of Bethesda to help meet de mands during peak consump tion periods.

The standpipe is expected to be completed in the spring on a parcel already holding a 2.5 million gallon standpipe.

I “People shouldn’t be tum- • ing them loose with a 300- horsepower car to drive at 80 I or 90. miles an hour at night,'’ . he said, “but that’s whtf a ; lot are doing. They get out into drag races, and- there;, are serious consequences to pay.” He said New York StateSas i a similar law which has been ■ successful in reducing teen-age traffic accident cases. ?- The real answer, according to Judge Noyes, is high school ' driver training courses for all > students who want them.
