Lee Attacks Brewster
On Dropping of Culver Blair Lee, 111, candidate for the United States Senate, yes terday accused Representative Brewster of supporting some Baltimore County politicians involved in Maryland’s savings and loan controversy while try ing to make another the scape goat. It was the hardest-hitting statement yet issued in the Senate race which up to now has been a cream-puff affair. Mr. Brewster is Mr. Lee’s op ponent in the May Democratic primary, along with Elbert Byrd, jr„ of Riverdale. The Lee statement followed a claim by Delegate Charles F. Culver, Democratic State dele gate from Baltimore County, that he was dumped from the county ticket. Mr. Culver said he had heard that Mr. Brewster did not want him on the ticket because of his involvement with Security Financial Insurance Corpora tion. The firm which insures deposits in savings and loan companies, was started by a group of Baltimore County Democratic politicians and was the target of a bitter contro versy in the 1961 session of the General Assembly. Planned to Run Mr. Culver, who was president of SFIC until last June, said he had planned to run for re-elec tion to the House of Delegates but was told he was unaccept able to the Birmingham-Brew ster organization. He said "this didn’t make sense” because others involved in SFIC are on! the local ticket in Baltimore! County. These include Michael Bir mingham, Maryland’s national Democratic commit teem an, running for Baltimore County Executive; Delegate A. Gordon Boone, House majority floor leader, and Delegate Roy N. Staten, running for re-election. Mr. Culver said he was told by Mr. Birmingham at a meeting about 10 days ago, attended by Mr. Boone, Mr. Staten and State Senator James A. Pine, that he (Mr. Culver) would be a “political liability” because of his involvement in SFIC. Noting Mr. Culver’s remark that Mr. Brewster was opposed to his being on the ticket, Mr. I Lee said: “One finds it very difficult j to distinguish between Mr. Culver’s role as president of SFIC and the roles played by other politicians seeking re election on Mr. Brewster’s lo cal ticket. To make Mr. Cul ver the scapegoat is moral du plicity at its worst. The public will not tolerate the thin ve neer of whitewash Mr. Brew ster offers them.” Refers to Article 2 Mr. Lee said that a county paper co-owned by Mr. Brew- j ster carried a recent article saying that Mr. Boone, a law partner of Mr. Brewster, is “slated for the post of Speaker of the House next year.” Mr. Boone helped organize SFIC with money brought in from out-of-State. In another political develop ment, the campaign chairman for George P. Mahoney, candi date for Governor, accused Gov. Tawes of taking action “for the good of the State only as a last desperate resort and then only when prodded by the political urgencies of an elec tion year.” Michael Paul Smith, the Ma honey manager, said that it was only after Mr. Mahoney said he would support certain programs that Gov. Tawes an nounced he would provide ad ditional funds for them. He listed faculty salaries at State teachers college, more capital improvements at the colleges, Police Use Dogs in Shore Race Clashes CHESTERTOWN, Md„ Feb. 3 (AP).—lntegrationist groups attacking racial segregation in restaurants and lunch counter in this eastern shore commu nity abruptly called a halt to demonstrations today in the wake of two incidents which nearly erupted into full-scale race riots. Some 17 out-of-state college students were chased from one tavern early in the afternoon by an angry crowd of nearly 200 white patrons waving beer bottles and shouting impreca tions. The students were self styled Freedom Riders from New York. Connecticut and Pennsylvania. Signs which the white and Negro integrationists carried were ripped from their hands and at least one demonstrator suffered minor injuries before hastily summoned State police accompanied by K-9 dogs broke up the melee. Two hours later, a crowd of some 200 angry Negroes, most of them local residents, de scended on the tavern, operated by Grover Hubbard of Chester town. State police again inter vened before a mass clash developed between the group and 40 to 50 white patrons, who hurried out of the building armed again with beer bottles. Police arrested three persons during the outbreaks. Two were charged with disorderly conduct and the third with as sault and battery on a police officer. The assault and bat tery charges stemmed from an attack on a plainclothes police photographer who apparently was mistaken for a newspaper man, police said. Demonstrations also were staged in Easton, Cambridge, and Centreville. Md.—all on the Eastern Shore. Five persons were arrested in Cambridge on charges stem ming from the demonstrations. No incidents or arrests were reported in Easton or Centre ville. and funds for mental health, parks and prisons. In a separte statement, Mr. Mahoney accused the Tawes administration of having dem onstrated its utter lack of con cern with plight of the Mary land worker.” Mr. Mahoney said new pro grams need to be initiated par ticularly for the over 45-year old group and the young work ers just entering the labor mar ket. He proposed a series of management-labor conferences to find ways of reducing dis crimination against older work- 7fr dUfR ♦ a!

David Hume, also a candidate for the Democratic nomination for Governor, took Gov. Tawes to task yesterday for calling Mr. Hume’s proposal for tax deduction for losses in savings and loan associations a “po litical gimmick.” He also criti cized the Governor for saying he would appear on the same platform with his challengers, but would not debate with them. “It is Important to know that the Governor failed to grasp the purpose of my savings and loan relief measures which were directed at helping the in nocent victims who will even tually be entitled to relief but for whom relief may come too late,” Mr. Hume said. Fairfax School Board OKs Teachers' Pay Rise The Fairfax School Board approved a new salary scale for teachers yesterday ranging from $4,600 to $7,000 in 12 steps. The board, in a day-long budget study session, also cut $137,000 from school Supt. E. C. Funderburk’s proposed $36 million spending program. The new teachers salary scale would give teachers hold ing bachelors degrees annual increases ranging from SIOO for new teachers to $l6O for those with 12 years’ experience. The school board’s action does not guarantee teachers the new salary range. The en tire budget must be approved by the Board of County Super visors which may make further cuts. The scale is considerably lower than that approved In Montgomery County last Wednesday. That pay schedule runs from $4,820 to $7,990 in 12 steps. Mr. Funderburk had recom mended that the board adopt the new scale, though it was not, he said, as high as he would have liked. He explained earlier that he indorsed the scale because he believed that it would be nec essary to spend more than a half million dollars this year in hiring more teachers so that the pupil-teacher ratio could be reduced. The new scale will require the county to spend $408,000 more this year than would have been necessary if no raise had been given. The budget also calls fsr spending $511,000 to hire 112 teachers to reduce the pupil teacher ratio, but the board has not yet taken action on that request. Altogether, the school budget proposes spending $6.7 million Metro Area THE SUNDAY STAR Washington, 0. C. February 4,1962 more this year than last. A to tal of $3.8 million of that, Mr. Funderburk said, is necessary simply to maintain the current level of education for the addi tional 6,700 pupils expected next year. The $137,000 cut from the budget during yesterday’s ses sion—the third so far—includ ed cuts of $31,020 to eliminate 11 custodians, a $50,000 item proposed for repair and main tenance of schools; $32,000 for fuel; $14,820 for telephones, and SIO,OOO for custodial serv ices during public use of school buildings. B-3 Tawes Boosts Exhibit at Fair Gov. Tawes yesterday ap pointed a five-member commit tee to draw up plans and a budget for Maryland’s proposed exhibit at the 1964-5 New York World’s Fair. 1 It has been proposed that the exhibit take the form of a restaurant featuring Mary land cuisine. Gov. Tawes is ex pected to ask for a State ap propriation of about $500,000 for the exhibit.
