Baltimore County police evacuated Franklin Middle School in Reisterstown yesterday afternoon after five vials of flammable substances were found in the locker of a 12-year-old pupil. Police said the seventh-grader told administrators that he was trying to sell the substances to other pupils as bomb-making ingredients. Sgt. Dean Brubaker of the arson and hazardous devices unit said a preliminary investigation showed that the materials were household chemicals that, if combined with "certain incendiary devices," could become explosive.

Regarding the Solo Cup factory zoning ("No 'courtesy' for Wegmans," May 27), why is no one talking about using the facility for a new middle school in the northwestern part of the county? Franklin Middle School has 1,292 students, Deer Park Middle has 1,235 students and Pikesville Middle has 1,017. These enrollment figures are higher than the other county middle schools and having over 1,200 students in a middle school is ludicrous. The best use of this property would be a new middle school so that student enrollment at the aforementioned middle schools could be reduced to reasonable levels.

A Franklin Middle School teacher is scheduled to appear in court next month on charges that she had a five-month sexual relationship with one of her eighth-grade pupils, Baltimore County police said yesterday. The teacher, who taught Spanish at the Reisterstown school, was suspended with pay after the pupil's father notified police of the allegations in March. Neither school nor police officials told other parents about the investigation. Charles Herndon, a spokesman for Baltimore County schools, said yesterday that the principal at Franklin Middle, Lynn F. Wolf, didn't make an announcement when the allegations surfaced in March because the teacher was not immediately charged.

Cpl. Vickie Warehime, a police spokeswoman, said the seventh-grader was arrested on the felony charge late Tuesday. Police are withholding his name because he is charged as a juvenile.
