Ranson Infant FROM PAGE 1-A Mrg. Margaret Writt, who was in the kitchen part of the trailer when the fire was first discover- ed, said she did not know the unit was on fire until just seconds before she saw a sheet of flames at the entrance of the kitchen part of the trailer. Mr. Writt said this morning that public response to a plea for clothinz and household furni h- inRs has been remarkable and that he wishes to express his thanks to all those who have been so thoughtful kind and generous to him and all members of his family during this tragedy. He al- so expressed praise for the quick and efficient efforts of the Char- les Town firemen and to Lt. Pitt- inner for saving the life of his daughter.

It was brought out in the dis- cussions that one of the things that had brought about the cur- rent controversy over the inclus- ion of the Shenandoah and Ca- capon Rivers in the "Wild Rivers Bill" had been the lack of citi- zen participation and the lack of communications between the cit- izens and the planners of the Po- Comae River Basin. Sydney Howe, an associate with lhe Conservation Foundation in Washington, D. C., told the gath- ering there si]ould be more civic adion in the planning of the Potomac. Then he went on 1o say that by the end of igt}o there is going to be a proposal made that, one central agency be created to direct the planning and the funct- ions of the basin. It will be a proposal for some kind of a basin agency which will have the uath- ority to take over functions now handled by federal, state and some local governments. Planning for the Potomac Basin the group was told, must meet the objectives of clean water, minimum disruption of rural and urban activities, the preservation of the natural beauty of the Po- tomac for the highest quality of recreational pursuits. It was also pointed up that the over-all Potomac planning should include thoughts on a clean and adequate water supply and laud patterns. !
