WASHINGTON -- Maryland's 5-year-old system of charging fees for charities that seek to raise money in the state withstood a constitutional challenge in the Supreme Court yesterday.The court turned aside an appeal by the Center for Auto Safety, a Washington-based consumer advocacy group founded by Ralph Nader. The center's appeal contended that the fee system favors local charities over those that raise money nationwide.The fee schedule was adopted in 1989, after state officials concluded that the fees they were charging were too low to produce the revenue needed to cover state expenses of monitoring charities.

A committee that has spent a year studying fund raising by PTAs, student organizations and booster clubs in county public schools is close to recommending rules that would limit, but not eliminate, the activities.The study was prompted by two concerns that came to public attention in 1989.School officials worried that fund raising was taking up too much class time, and PTA council officers were concerned that individual school PTAs were being asked to raise money for items that the school system should have supplied, such as paper, books and art supplies.

From the heat of August to the chill of February, Larry Foster walks along the intersection of Ritchie Highway and Marley Glen carrying bins of Tootsie Rolls. He knocks on car doors and, as the drivers roll down their windows, he hands out candy and they hand him change. Foster and other members of the Glen Burnie council of the Knights of Columbus donate the money to special education schools and nearby churches. Last year, they donated $13,000 to the Ruth Parker Eason School in Millersville.

CONGRESSIONAL Republicans are about to begin another rampage against public broadcasting.Because some public television stations -- WETA in Washington, D.C., and WGBH in Boston -- exchanged donor lists with the Democratic National Committee, Republicans are threatening to cut this year's funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.Their outrage is a bit strange, since Republicans' practice of slashing federal grants is one of the reasons stations must exchange lists to raise money.

ALL OVER MARYLAND, in almost every small town, groups of volunteer women -- dubbed auxiliaries -- raise money for good causes, supporting the men who volunteer for the perilous work of saving lives and property from fire. In Hyattstown, for example, the auxiliary recently raised $94,000 to put an elevator in the firehouse. In Lineboro, they put on four haunted hayrides to raise money for a variety of purposes -- and sold 11,000 tickets. If they didn't take the auxiliaries for granted, most Marylanders would want to see this rich tradition of service grow and strengthen.
