P.G. Police Operations Eased
The Central Communications Center of the Prince Geor¬
ges County Police Department, considered by many to be one
of the most intricate and sophisticated communications opera¬
tions on the East Coast, became operational in November, 1967.
While it is still not completed to final plans specifications, the
improvement and smoothness of operation over the old system
is almost phenomenal, according to county officials.
In a plain, oblong red brick building in Seat Pleasant, a
handful of men daily perform electronic tricks for the protec¬
tion of the citizens in the 486 square miles of Prince Georges
Seated at the multi-paneled U-
shaped control board, they push
buttons, answer telephones and
talk softly into mini-microphones.
In the subdued lighting of the
room, the translucent light-point¬
ed map in front of each man star¬
kly shines out.
Prior to November, dispatchers
were literally becoming gray¬
haired old men overnight in trying
to get messages through to vehi¬
cles on the overcrowded radio
waves and through the crossed ov¬
er maze of telephone lines.
Faced with the problem of a
growing department in a burgeon¬
ing County and its myriad com¬
munications problems, the Police
Department was able to obtain two
additional police radio frequencies
from the Federal Communications
With the four radio channels
now assigned them, the Police,
Meeting for Participants
In Labor Day Festival
Every organization taking part
in the Greenbelt Labor Day Festi¬
val should be represented at the
meeting to be held on Tuesday,
July 9, at 8 p.m. at the G.H.L
Hospitality Room. The general
purpose of this meeting will be to
coordinate all activities and set up
schedules for the four-day period
in which the Festival will be held.
The gala Parade will be held on
Monday, September 2, and will
start at 10 a.m. promptly. Those
interested in participating in the
Parade must contact Chief H. John
Crisman of the Greenbelt Fire De¬
partment (P. O. Box 35) before
August 15. Parade line-up will be¬
gin on Ridge Rd. near North End

ded the County into a Northern Organizations wishing to parti
and Southern district, using Cen- ci P ate in any other aspect of the
tral Avenue as the dividing line
and allocating one channel to each
district. Another channel was al¬
located to the use of the detective
bureau, the town police and Coun¬
ty departments. The fourth chan¬
nel is reserved for County-wide
Central Communications oper¬
ates naturally on a continuous ba¬
sis and is manned by a supervisor
and six radio dispatchers on each
of three shifts. Two dispatchers
are assigned to each of the three
control panels and are completely
responsible for the control of the
vehicles and communications in
their sector. A large translucent
map in front of the dispatcher lets
him know’’ at a glance where each
car is and which cars are in ser¬
vice. When a car is dispatched to
a particular location or is sent on
assignment, the dispatcher takes
an IBM card from the rack beside
him, time-stamps the time of as¬
signment and transfers it to the
action hie. On completion of his
assignment the patrol officer re¬
ports back and and the dispatcher
then reverses his actions.
Effective on July 1, the possessor
of a library card issued anywhere
in the state may borrow books
and other materials from any pub¬
lic library system in Maryland.
The new service will give library
borrowers an opportunity to be¬
come acquainted with many of the
specialized collections developed by
various public libraries in the
state, such as Edgar Allen Poe
Room and Collection (for reference
use only) the H. L. Mencken Room
and its reference collection, and
the Maryland Room, with histori¬
cal materials for circulation, at
the Enoch Pratt Free Library in
A brochure on the reciprocal
borrowing and the enlarged inter-
library loan program, listing the
addresses and telephone numbers
of the public libraries in Mary¬
land’s 23 counties and Baltimore
City, will be available at a T l pub¬
lic libraries soon.

County Surtax Increases
From 20 to 45 Percent
The increase in the present
County surtax on the State income
tax from 20 to 45 percent — was
made necessary by the adoption
of a 1968-69 Prince Georges budget
of $176.3 million last week. At the
same time, the county commission¬
ers reduced the real estate proper¬
ty tax from $2.90 per $100 assessed
valuation to $2.88.
The $176.3 million budget repre¬
sented a drop of $1 million from
that originally proposed. Most of
the cut came from the Board of
Education portion, which accounts
for about 71 percent of the total
budget. Included in the cuts was
$400,000 in grants to the Commun¬
ity College and the remainder in
construction monies for schools be¬
The commissioners also voted to
increase the recording tax on deeds
from $1.10 to $1.65 per $500 sale
price on real estate.

Of GHI Corporation
The initial phase of the Green¬
belt Homes, Inc.- James Smith (4-
H Southway) court case, in which
Smith’s lawyers filed a counter¬
claim seeking the title to Smith’s
house, was decided by Judge Ro¬
bert B, Mathias in favor of GHI.
According to GHI manager, Roy
Breashears, in the opinion of the
judge, “GHI’s mutual ownership
contract is not a land installment
contract so that Smith could never
get the deed.”
The case involving the injunction

removal of his automobile from
his yard, is scheduled for trial
in the fall.

Although the final accounting of

Hello From Judy in Alaska
If you have yet to visit the 49th state and wonder what it
looks like, you may get some answers from Judy Holland of 13-
8 Ridge Road. Judy, a resident of Greenbelt and employee of
(Joddard for quite a few years has recently moved to College.
Alaska. In a letter to her friends at Goddard, she described
some of her experiences as follows:
I arrived safely without too
much incident. Seattle was cold
and rainy and so was Fairbanks
when I finally got here. People
keep telling me it never rains in
Alaska. Sure! Like last summer
it never rained. The effects of
the flood are still being felt; for
instance, telephone lines that got
wet and then froze. From the er¬
ratic behavior of the phones, they
never unfroze. My particular tel¬
ephone has nervous hiccups. It
gives short little rings and slides
all over the desk, when I pick
it up there’s never anyone there.
Anyway, the weather is warm (too
warm) and sunny now. I had to
go out and buy some summer
clothes. It’s hot here. There’s
no air-conditioning in the building,
of course. Right now, there’s a fan
on the floor, keeping my ankles
cool, but not the rest of me. The
cord isn’t long enough for me to
put it on a table, and I can’t find
The flight from Seattle to Fair¬
banks was very interesting. Not
just for the Gold Rush theme they
keep playing up. I think all Alas¬
kans read too much Robert W.
Service. The usual safety instruc¬
tions in Alaskan Airlines are in,
you should excuse the expression,
“verse’. For example, “In your
seat, please firmly sit and make
sure your seat belts fit/ I not
only had to listen to that leaving
Seattle, but again when we left
My office is very colorful. The
chairs are orange and the file cab¬
inets are blue and white. (But
there aren’t enough of them —
naturally). The people are very
friendly and seem to be terribly
afraid I don’t know what I’m in
for when winter comes. I’ve been
receiving all sorts of instructions
on how to get to work (ski), how
to keep my car going (just don’t
turn the motor off — ever), how
to keep warm (the thickest fur
parka you can buy) and how to
pass the cold winter evenings when
you can’t go out (take a drinkL
So (’ailed “Highways”
The area around Fairbanks is
very beautiful. The very high
mountains are quite a way off.
The immediate hills look very
much like the ones in Virginia. I
can see Mt. McKinley from my of¬
fice window. I’ve taken several
drives in the surrounding country¬
side, on what are rather optimis¬
tically called “highways”. Alask¬
ans don’t waste their money on
pavement. The Steese Highway is
1 mile of gravel and 100 miles of
dirt. On the way is the town of
Fox. Again the overly optimistic
use of a word. Fox consists of a
general store, a bar, three houses
and an apartment house that looks
like a shoe box with windows. Last
Saturday, on a drive along the Ne-
nana Road, we had a flat tire, miles
from nowhere. No jack of course,
and we had to walk about a mile
to somebody’s homestead to get
help. And me in high heels. When
people speak of the “unspoiled
Alaskan countryside’, they mean
houses without indoor plumbing,
no agriculture at all, moose and
caribou hogging the roads, and
some of those roads little more
than dog tracks.
Alaskan Wildlife . . .
The mosquitos here are not only
numerous, but I understand there’s
a special branch of taxidermy that
specializes in stuffing them for
museums. I have a running war
with them. When I first arrived,
somebody presented me with a
beautifully wrapped package of
mosquito repellant. I’ve been ad¬
vised never to walk anywhere with¬
I’ve also been up to see the Musk
Oxen. Big deal! They look like
haystacks with legs. I was taken
up to the Institute of Arctic Biolo¬
gy one day last week. When I
was asked if I would like to go I
thought “Oh, goody! Here’s my
chance to see some real Alaskan
wildlife”. The first animal I saw
was a kangaroo!
I had a little trouble getting used
to the long hours of daylight. It
doesn't get dark until around 3
in the morning. It seems funny to
look at your watch at midnight
and see the sun still shining bright¬
ly. Around the end of June, we go
to 24 hours daylight. Oh, joy!
. . . And About Judy Herself
Judy, who has worked at Goddard
Space Flight Center and whose
furthest venture westward has so
far been a steamboat trip down the
Ohio river, will work during the
next year at the Geophysical Insti¬
tute of the University of Alaska
in College, a suburb of Fairbanks.
She will be the secretary of Profes¬
sor Neil Davis, Assistant Director
of the Institute, who is active in
the research of the polar aurora,
including an attempt (sponsored by
NASA) to create a small artificial
aurora by means of rocket-borne
Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., Judy is
a long-time resident of Greenbelt
and member of the first graduating
class of St. Hugh’s. She recalls
the time when St. Hugh’s school
was not yet ready and classes were
held in the Greenbelt Theatre, as
was the Sunday Morning Mass. She
later graduated from the Notre
Dame Academy in Washington.
Many Greenbelters remember her
from her appearances with the
Greenbelt Players, including the
central role of Romaine (the wife)
in “Witness for the Prosecution,”
Thomas C. Williams, age 89, died
last week. A patient at the Green¬
belt Convelescent Center since last

Our deepest sympathy to Mrs

A Greenbelt family touring the
Finger Lake region of New York
state was looking for a supermar¬
ket in Ithaca the other day. After
criss-crossing the town several
times in a futile search, they gave
up and headed out of town, deter¬
mined to patronize the first coun¬
try store they saw. But when they
rounded that last curve on the edge
of town, what did they see but a
big Coop store, complete with its
twin-pines emblem! Indeed, it
turned out that this was a distant
relative of the Greenbelt Co-op —
except that where ours has grown
to be a great enterprise, the Itha¬
ca Co-op, built in 1949, is still the
only one in that city. Its manager,
Robert Brill, is well acquainted
with Greenbelt — having been here
in a Co-op conference three years
ago — and sends his regards to all
his friends here, especially to Ben
Rosenzweig, Bruce Bowman and
