The child, a daughter, was born about 11 a.m. but the call came to the State Police at 3: 50 a.m. Monday. Mr. Grammer was unable to get his car out through the drifting snow. Police were unable to get in with cars and called for the helicopter at 4: 15 a.m. The helicopter was on the scene by 4: 55 a.m. -- The Carroll Record, Feb. 24, 1972.

The rebellion of a number of pupils in the commercial department of Westminster High School against an edict by the Carroll County Board of Education is stirring school circles here. An appeal has been made to the Circuit Court to settle the question at issue. A petition for a writ of mandamus has been filed by Theodore F. Brown and Bond & Parke, in the name of Jno. W. Weigle, petitioner, asking the court to order the restoration of his son Edgar to school privileges. The petition alleges that the Board of Education on Feb. 1 passed a resolution demanding from each pupil a guarantee fee to safeguard the care and use of typewriters in the commercial department, the machines to be inspected at the end of the school year, and a pro rata charge for repairs to be made against this fund and the balance refunded; the fee for the remainder of this school year to be $2.50. -- Democratic Advocate, Feb. 24, 1922.
