Perry Hox­ter, about 35, of Price, on June 30 about 7:20 p.m. The war­rant charged him with ma­li­cious de­struc­tion of prop­erty.

Robin­son said that he went to the home of Car­rie Ridge­way at Price and found Hox­ter. He said that he read the war­rant and placed the man un­der arrest. Hox­ter replied that he had no in­ten­tion of go­ing to jail and turned and ran out of the door with Robin­son in hot pur­suit.

The po­lice of­fi­cer said he caught the man in a field and a scuf­fle en­sued with Robin­son re­ceiv­ing a bro­ken fin­ger be­fore he could hand­cuff the man.

Hox­ter was brought to the Queen Anne’s County jail and in­stead of one charge, now has two ad­di­tional charges of as­sault on a po­lice of­fi­cer and re­sist­ing arrest to face.

••• The Queen Anne’s County Board of Ed­u­ca­tion has re­leased a sum­mary of the county schools for the 1965-67 school year which noted that en­roll­ment for this year was nearly 1,000 more than 10 years ago.

In Septem­ber 1966, 4,235 chil­dren were en­rolled and within them 142 stu­dents were re­ceived by trans­fer. This com­pares to 1956 when 3,334 stu­dents were en­rolled and 208 re­ceived in trans­fer.

In 1967, 235 stu­dents grad­u­ated from the new con­sol­i­dated Queen Anne’s County Com­pre­hen­sive High School, while in 1956 there were 139 grad­u­ated from the four county high schools then in op­er­a­tion.
