Planners Threaten Court Fight Over $600,000 Park Land Cut Suburban Maryland plan-, ners yesterday threatened court j action if Congress fails to re store $600,000 which the House Appropriations Committee cut from the Interior Department s budget. The money was requested by i the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commis sion under the Federal Capper- ! Cramton program to buy | stream valley park land. Con gress in the past two years has denied the money, which plan ners would match with $1.2 million for park land pur chases in Montgomery County. I “We are extremely disap pointed at the committee ac tion and consider it a shock ing disregard of the solemn contract which started the Cap per-Cramton program in 1931,” Jesse F. Nicholson, executive di rector of the commission said yesterday. , “I have asked our general counsel and bond counsel to i find what claim, if any, we : might have under the con- ; tract,” Mr. Nicholson said. In the mean time, he said s his commission will try to have the $600,000 restored when the appropriation bill comes to the House floor Tuesday. Failing this, the Senate will be urged to restore the funds. The $l.B million would pur chase 837 acres in two units in the Rock Creek Park, two units in the Cabin John Park, and one unit in the Northwest Branch Park. Mr. Nicholson said $817,000 of the $l.B million already has been spent. This was done in accordance with an amendment to the basic agreement which allowed the Commission to ad vance money to buy potential park areas threatened by the logging or sand and gravel in dustry or by home builders. “If we tried to purchase the land now that we bought for TODAY'S WEATHER REPORT District and vicinity—Mostly sunny and warmer today, high near 57, with 15-25 m.p.h. winds and excellent visibility Clear and cool tonight, low near 34.

Richard J. Muffoletto, head of the Monumental City Sav ings & Loan Association, Inc., said the State action was| “strictly political,” and added: “My opinion is that they (the I State authorities) are after any one who has been insured by Security Financial.” Mr. Muf foletto declined to elaborate or comment further. Monumental City’s operations were placed largely under con trol of the State attorney gen eral and the Department of Assessments and Taxation, ac cording to an order filed Friday in the Circuit Court of Balti- more City. Mr. Muffoletto’s reference to “Security Financial” was to the Security Financial Insurance Corp., the only private, state chartered insuring firm for loan associations in the State.

Amid pleas for party solidar ity, local leaders of the three primary election slates gave public airing to their dif ferences. The United Democrats for Tawes will be asked to adopt an election plank opposed to any public accommodations law not sanctioned by a State-wide referendum, according to State senatorial candidate Alger Y. Barbee. The Democrats for Progress, a group supporting the Mahon ey-Lee ticket, came up with the almost-forgotten charge of “iso lationism” against the County Democrats, a faction running on strictly local issues. Blast Other Tickets And the County Democrats blasted the other tickets for what they called the “love me —love my dog" attitude of local candidates running with the assistance of State-wide per sonalities. The differences were aired before some 200 precinct work ers and candidates at a meet ing called by the county’s Cen tral Committee. The audience was polite, and gave every candidate on every ticket a hand. But the leaden Maryland Candidates To Woo Rural Voters By PAUL HOPE Star Staff Writer 1 After weeks of campaigning mostly by press release, Mary- ] land politicians are starting i tours that will take them from ’ the mountains of Garrett ' County to the Atlantic resorts : of the Eastern Shore. Gov. Tawes and his Demo cratic primary team are sched uled to set out today in a red, white and blue bus for Oakland in Garrett County for the start of a week-long shoe-leather campaign through Western Maryland. One of his major primary opponents, George P. Mahoney, plans to start a seven-county swing Tuesday in Western Maryland with his running mates. While the Tawes and Ma honey forces were putting on their walking shoes, Democratic gubernatorial candidate David Hume was gathering support from a group of ministers. His campaign manager in Mont gomery County claimed that Mr. Mahoney apparently is afraid to come into Montgomery. Clergymen Back Hume In a pre-tour statement, Mr. Mahoney called the Tawes ticket a “no-action ticket.” He said that on his trip he will “indict the Tawes ticket for lack of leadership, lack of con cern for the oridinary citizen, government by crony and fiscal irresponsibility.” The Rev. Andrew L. Gunn, an anti-slot machine parson from Southern Maryland who has moved to Montgomery, announced yesterday the for mation of a “Clergymen for Hume Committee.” Mr. Hume, who also has la bored long In the anti-slot wars, I was described by Mr. Gunn, pas tor of Grace Methodist Church, Gaithersburg, as “the only candidate In Maryland who has had the moral courage to come out against this major evil in our State.” Meanwhile, Lathrop Smith, the Hume manager in Mont gomery, charged that "a delib erate effort is being made to sheild Mr. Mahoney from ex posure to the voters of Mont gomery County. He said Mr. Mahoney campaigns by press release and by proxy through his running mates one of whom is Blair Lee 111, of Montgomery, candidate for United States Senate. AH 3 Tour State The Tawes ticket will cam paign Monday in Garrett Coun ty, Tuesday in Allegany, Wednesday in Washington, Tawes Lauds i Rockville's Citizens Gov. Tawes, a native of rural Somerset County, paid a compliment yesterday to citi zens grapping with the com plicated problems in the urban portions of Maryland. The Governor, dedicating the city’s new $249,000 city hall, said Rockville citizens and their city government had been successful tn turning the population explosion into “wholesale, healthy and or derly growth.” . The Governor, who is run ning for re-election, said that during his administration the State Department of Planning was reorganized and the im portance of State planning aid to local communities was i stressed. As part of the dedication ■ceremonies, Gov. Tawes hoisted ‘ the "All-American City” Award Flag above the new 42-room city hall. Rockville has been named an All-American City by the National Municipal League and Look Magazine. Rockville won the same honor lin 1954. ; Mayor Alexander J. Greene said the city had received per- I sonal congratulations on the iaward from President Kennedy of the factions left no doubt that there were differences, and that they were out to make the most of it. Mr. Barbee, speaking for his ticket, explained his action in the House of Delegates in op posing the ill-fated accommo dations law—a law which would have made it illegal for hotel and restaurant proprietors to refuse to serve Negroes. He said he would ask his ticket to indorse a plank stat ing, “The right of a proprietor to choose his own patrons is basic, and should not be abol ished or overridden except by referendum.” Sees Contradiction William F. Hickey, a member of the County Council running for the State Senate, said there is an "inherent contra diction” for any political tick et to run without taking full responsibility for State issues and for candidates for State office. Without mentioning the County Democrats by name, Mr. Hickey called this attitude “county isolationism.” Mr. Hickey, local leader of the Mahoney - Lee ticket, said there was a recent illustration of this attiude in the failure of the public accommodations bill in the last General Assem bly. The bill was loaded with amendments exempting many .rural Maryland counties from Thursday in Frederick and Friday in Carroll. The Mahoney forces will cross paths with the Tawes en tourage when the Mahoney ticket moves into Allegany on Tuesday for & two-day stand. On Thursday and Friday, the Mahoney ticket will be in Washington County and on Friday in Frederick. Mr. Hume, who is running without a ticket, also is plan ning to tour the State in the remaining two months before the May 15 primary. Mr. Gunn announced that the steering committee of the clergy-for-Hume group is com posed of the Rev. Frank D. Foster, pastor of the First Bap tist Church of Gaithersburg; the Rev. Robert D. Moss, Uni tarian Church of Rockville; the Rev. Robert L. Strickler, Flower Hill Church of the Brethren, Redland; the Rev. Thomas H. Brooks, Jerusalem Methodist Church, Rockville; the Rev. John L. Laney, Twtnbrook Baptist Church, and the Rev. Custer G. Cromwell, Rockville Methodist Church.

This, according to Mr. Hickey, shows what happens when “counties isolate themselves from a State issue.” State Senator Margaret Schweinhaut, running for re election on the County Demo crats ticket, said earlier that in Montgomery County “our concepts, attitudes and gov ernmental actions are 20 years ahead of any other area in this State.
