50 YEARS AGO

Record Observer - - Opinion -

A lady world trav­eler, who owns prop­erty near Church Hill, is among the six faulty mem­bers hired by the new Ch­e­sa­peake Col­lege as in­com­ing fresh­men are be­ing ac­cepted for the Class of 1969.

Dr. Ge­orge Sil­ver, Ch­e­sa­peake’s pres­i­dent, has an­nounced rapid progress for a late-spring 1967 start on the Wye Mills cam­pus. Classes for the first year will be held in the new build­ing of the Queen Anne’s County High School in Cen­tre­ville.

He an­nounced the ap­point­ment of six full-time fac­ulty mem­bers as the nu­cleus of the group which will be needed when the classes be­gin in Septem­ber of this year.

•• • The County Com­mis­sion­ers made no ap­point­ments for Tues­day due to the sched­ul­ing of an af­ter­noon zon­ing hear­ing on a pe­ti­tion from Kerr-McChem­i­cal Corp., but a few peo­ple did drop in.

Dur­ing the early morn­ing check sign­ing and bond ap­provals, Les­lie Evans, the East­ern Shore rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the State Roads Com­mis­sion, came in for a short unan­nounced visit.

The in­for­mal dis­cus­sion cen­tered around the com­ing sum­mer and the prob­lems which will reap­pear since Queen Anne’s County lost the par­al­lel Bay Bridge, at least for the mo­ment.

Evans re­vealed that a sur­vey is about half com­plete re­gard­ing a re­quest from Kent Is­lan­ders to pave the shoul­der on Rt. 50 from Cox Neck Road sev­eral hun­dred feet to the point where Rt. 18 branches off to the right.

The ob­ject is to help res­i­dents get home dur­ing sum­mer tie-ups by al­low­ing them to by­pass traf­fic at least for that short dis­tance.

••• Thieves broke the glass in the front door and carted off a small of­fice safe con­tain­ing ap­prox­i­mately $500 in cash some­time between 9 and 11 p.m. Sun­day night.

State Po­lice re­ported that the theft oc­curred at Whar­ton’s Esso Sta­tion at the junc­tion of Route 213 and 18, just across the high­way from Cen­tre­ville Tag-A-Long Trailer Com­pany.
