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
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!
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
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
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
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
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-

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
“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
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
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
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
Altogether, the school budget
proposes spending $6.7 million

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

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
