"TC 25 Years Ago

* The Computer Problem Solving Project in which Frederick County is participating jointly with Allegany, Carroll, Howard, Montgomery and Washington counties is now in operation. Tele-typewriter computer terminals are installed in two local schools, North Frederick Elementary School and Gov. Thomas Johnson High School. Computer-assisted instruction, as demonstrated by the local project, provides an experience unique among mass communication instructional media. Other media such as television, motion pictures or radio require only passive behavior on the part of the learner; the computer demands active behavior. -- Community Reporter, March 6, 1970.

50 Years Ago

* Important changes in the tire rationing program have required the reduction in the number of tire inspectors for Carroll County from 61 to the present 22. On Feb. 23, Russell Copeland, senior tire examiner for the state, addressed a meeting of inspectors at the Rationing Board, Westminster, with the tire panel present. In view of the present tire shortage, the tire panel cautions all car operators to watch their tires closely. -- Democrtic Advocate, March 2, 1945.
