FROM THE PAST

changed to “B-2” Gen­eral Busi­ness, in or­der to per­mit the fer­til­izer com­pany to re­lo­cate their of­fice across the road from its present lo­ca­tion.

••• The Kent Is­land Lions Club has ad­dressed a let­ter to the Dis­trict En­gi­neer of the Army’s Bal­ti­more Dis­trict Corps of En­gi­neers on the sub­ject of the lo­ca­tion of the pro­posed Ch­e­sa­peake Bay Hy­draulic Model.

One of the sites un­der prime con­sid­er­a­tion is at Mat­a­peake on Kent Is­land and the Lions Club stated they thought the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay Model should be lo­cated on the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay with the most log­i­cal con­struc­tion site at Mat­a­peake be­cause:

1. The land is al­ready owned by the state. 2. It’s lo­ca­tion is read­ily ac­ces­si­ble from Bal­ti­more, Wash­ing­ton and An­napo­lis. 3. The lo­ca­tion at Mat­a­peake is ad­ja­cent to a branch of the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay Af­fairs which would make for close co­op­er­a­tive ef­forts in re­lated fields. 4. Kent Is­land has hous­ing de­vel­op­ments to ac­com­mo­date man­age­ment per­son­nel and oth­ers; like­wise recre­ational fa­cil­i­ties for wa­ter sports, boat­ing, golf, etc. 5. Kent Is­land has five churches to care ad­e­quately for the spir­i­tual needs of new res­i­dents. 6. Lo­cated ad­ja­cent toi the Bay Bridge which is it­self a tourist at­trac­tion, the model would be an added at­trac­tion in close prox­im­ity, just off U.S. Route 50/301. 7. Tourists view­ing the model will be well ori­ented with the By Bridge in sight as well as the Naval Ex­per­i­ment Tow­ers and the Sev­ern, South and West rivers.

••• Two towns voted Mon­day un­der new char­ter changes elect­ing com­mis­sion­ers for “stag­gered” terms of three, two and one year.

Nearly 100 cit­i­zens of Sudlersville voted in the Town Of­fice from 4 to 7 p.m. for three com­mis­sion­ers — re­turn­ing two in­cum­bents to of­fice and nam­ing one new man.

In­cum­bent Le­muel Ben­ton was re­turned for the three-year term; new­comer Foster A. Smith will serve two years, and J. Ralph Gra­ham, also an in­cum­bent, will serve for one year.

Every year from now on, cit­i­zens will vote for one man for a three-year term.

In Queen­stown, a to­tal of 53 cit­i­zens cast bal­lots for the three com­mis­sion­ers who were al­ready in of­fice.

Lin­den Gabler re­ceived 50 votes and will serve the three-year term; Wil­liam Wal­bert, 43, for two years; and Robert Mey­ers, 37 votes, and will serve one year.
