i, i i i VOL. 9, NO. 3 SERVING THE PEOPLE OF CABIN JOHN AND BEYOND DECEMBER 1975 SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN! TIED UP IN TRAFFIC AT MACARTHUR BOULEVARD IN GLEN ECHO? If you are one of many folks who repeatedly f’mds himself playing “chicken” at the intersection of the George Washing- ton Memorial Parkway exit ramp and MacArthur Boulevard in Glen Echo, and you would like to see something done about the traffic situation, here is the name and address of the Chief of the Montgomery County Division of Traffic Engineering. Ronald C. Welke, Chief Division of Traffic Engineering Room 420 6110 Executive Boulevard Rockville, Maryland 20850. If you wish to call him, the number is 770-3260. During the time it will take to seek funding for the repair of Union Arch Bridge, this problem of trafficflow will persist and perhaps worsen. During the Spring and Summer, when bicyclists abound, the problem of traffic safety at this intersection will worsen. With school buses carrying our children from Cabin John to beyond using this dangerous in- tersection at peak traffic hours, the dan- ger heightens. If you are concerned, please~write or call and express your feelings and ideas about this matter. The time for action is now, while the bridge is closed fo vehicular traffic. Not some far Off time in the futt/re when it is re- opened – WHENEVER THAT WILL BE. Ed. GLEN ECHO PARK LAND TRANSFERRED TO NATIONAL PARK SERVICE it seems that GlenEcho Park will flnal!y enjoy the statu s of permancy under the National Park Service. The land trans- fer from GSA to the Department of In- terior has finally been approved by the President’s Office of Management and Budget. In a letter to Congressman Gilbert Gude on December 5, Paul O’Neill, Act- ing Director o£ OMB said: “You will be happy tO learn that the Office of Management and Budget has concluded that it has no objection to the proposed transfer of the Glen Echo Park lands from the GSA to the Depart- ment of the Interior, National Park Ser- vice .” Perhaps the completion of the land transfer will now enable Glen Echo Park to forge ahead with its Master Plan and ever increase the recreational and educa- tional services it provides the local com- munity.

I woiader how many of you have thought also about those who live in Glen Echo and Bannockburn and have been frustrated in their attempts to walk or bike into Cabin John. It actually goes even be- yond that scope, for the new bike trail brings hundreds of people each week in both directions along MacArthur Boulevard (It is finally starting to come up to the standard prematurely established when it was given such a proud name). Continued on page 2 THE VILLAGE NEWS 2 – i Continued from page There are many and varied interests and activities and family lives have been ABRIDGED at our Union Arch crossing. In such complicated circumstances no solution has presented itself with sufficient positive impact to gain the support neces- .S_m’y for expeditious action. It has been suggested that action could be promptly obtained were the so-called ‘%,andals” (man, we are really bad out here) of our town to set out Some quiet evening and destroy first the carefully • made (one lane wide on a curve) bridge down in the valley out Seven Locks Road, and second the overpass bridge leading from Clara Barton School into the George Washington Parkway, and third, the Per simmon Tree Road Bridge over the Belt- way. With those three furtherrestrictions upon transportation in and out of Cabin John, remarkable changes would immedi- ately become apparent: (a) Our families, young andold alike, would be able to safely walk the streets of our community – without fear of through traffic; (b) Our Clara Barton School wouid have to be reopened – O GLORIOUS DAY – for the school buses couldn’t tran- sport our children to that far off big- school, “education land” in the sky; (c) Our school-centered community . . life would re-awaken in an active PTA and Citizens Association; (d) Cabin John families would be drawn closer, for working parents would be un- ableto get out togo to work; (e) Jet noise would be greatly reduced, for the approach altitudes would need to THE VILLAGE NEWS is published monthly in Cabin John, Maryland.

(f) The sound of emergency vehicles would no longer echo through the Cabin John night as our proud rescuers couldn’t get out to rescue those far-off Beltway victims. They would devote themselves entirely to the needs of our communiZy, which are relatively few, actually. If left alone we would live relatively quiet lives, you know. Well, I could go on A there would be almost limitless benefits to the bombing of the other bridges. At the risk of removing all the charm from this rather choice article, may I sug- gest seriously that the sides of the Union Arch Bridge be raised to about 8 feet above the roadway using chain link fenc- hag, that the bridge be lighted, the road- way resurfaced and the passage re-opened immediately, to be reserved hereafter, 24 hours each and every day to pedestrian and bicycle traffic only. Motor traffic can go around – people cannot. And the time for any further ‘delay in reopening our our bridge has long since past.

LIGHTS… CAMERA… WHERE’S THE RIVER?: By Kevin Flynn Despite rains that fell every time they got the aperture set, a hardy group of filmmakers made their way down the .Pgt0mac in 0ctober, hoping to_ create a. new art form – and a f’Im about the riv- er. The filmmakers, led by independent producer Terry Tannen – the Potomac’s version of Robert Altman — f’timed the river for the Interstate Commission for the flrsttime since Stuart Finley chroni- cled the incredible story o£Mud in 1968. Mud, along with Teamwork on the Potomac, another vintage flick, have long been distributed by the Interstate Commi- ssion on the Potomac River Basin’s public information office to schools and commu- …. i nity organizations. Last year, more than “‘ 875 schools across the country requested the films. ICPRB now hopes to retire the out- dated films with a new look at the Poto- mac, based largely on the experiences of the ICPRB group that went down the river last August. Tannen interviewed people who live and work along the river, and will weave interviews into a 20 or 30 minute documentary about the Potomac today. Although the budget is severely li- mited, Mr. Tannen has used a combina- tion of penny-pinching and ingenuity to do the job. The Communication Department of American University in Washington is sup- plying a student film crew and equipment in return for a chance for young f’dmmak- ers to participate in the process. The filmis fgnded by ICPRB and the Citizens Council for a Clean Potomac, through their “Potomac Heritage” grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The U.S. Army Corps of Engi- neers, which is supplying a helicopter ride upriver, is among several cooperating a- gencies helping keep costs down. Tannen completed shooting in No- vember. The film should be available for screening sometime early next year. The above is taken from the October issue of POTOMAC BASIN REPORTER with the permission o fits editor. CORRECTION My apologies to Carlotta Anderson, Editor of THE ECHO for deleting the credit for the article, “About Rid of Agnes When Eloise Storms In,” and “Airplane Noise: Latest Developments.” The deletion of the creditwas indeed, an unintentional oversight. Ed. . TIlE VILLAGE NEWS Dear Editor, When we first moved to Cabin John three years ago, we were very concerned iabout the number of children riding bi- cycles and skate boards, often recklessly, in the middle of MacArthur .Boulevard. Often at night our headlights would pick up a bicycle in the middle of MacArthur b~91y in time for us to brake and avoid it, though we were not exceeding the speed limit. We also noticed groups of young people talking at night at the edge of the road, virtually invisible until right on them. We were relieved when the bike path was laid along MacArthur this spring. How: ever, to our dismay we note that the bike path is frequently ignored, and bikes and skate boards still abound in MacArthur Boulevard. Tonight we were returning home at nine PM, well after dark. As we approach- ed the fire house, our headlights picked up two bicycles pulling a skate board and a tricycle, careening back and forth in the middle of the road just 50 feet ahead – no lights, no light clothing, no attention to traffic. Parents, children – let’s be sure the bike path is used and that good safety is practiced in our community to avoid un- necessary tragedy. Not everybody driving on MacArthur Boulevard knows to creep along at 20 MPH looking for the unexpect- ed. Please, Mary Vinton It was sugges’ted by a member of th’e Cabin John community that the following letter from the editor (Carlotta Anderson), which appeared in the November issue of THE ECHO (Glen Echo’s monthly newspaper) be reprinted. 1 think this letter applies as well to Cabin John as it doe.s to Glen Echo. i~’ROM THE EDITOR (Carlotta Anderson; THE ECHO): One day recently my nine-year-old son was prevented from going on anerrand because dogs threatened him from both directions. A large barking white dog from : Pembroke Lane was positioned near the top of Our driveway on one side, and up Wellesley Circle the other way was the house where a large black German shepherd had jumped over the fence and barked me- nacingly at us the day before. I I called up both owners, and both were pleasant, but it is nevertheless embaras- sing tO call your neighbors to remind them of town ordinances. Barking, menacing dogs, or just those who forage in trash cans and knock them over are nothing new in this town. The subject has been discussed, at many Town Council meetings, and it was reported at ! the last one that Bob Singleton had captured a dog that had bitten him and had it taken to the pound. It is clear that the Town needs an Animal Control Officer, an office that has been vacant for several years. Dogs are lovable animals, but usually not to one’s neighbors. That is why there are leash laws not only in Glen Echo, but in Montgomery County. At the June Town Council meeting the Mayo r reported that two residents had volunteered to be Animal Control Officer and-that they would be contacted. Only one volunteer is still interested. At press time he has not been contacted and nothing has been done since the subject was brought up five months ago. When are we going to have an Ani- mal Control Officer? The following is a letter, dated October 22, 1975from Robert McGarry of the Corps of Engineers to Gilbert Gude, our Re.presentative in Congress. I am writing in response to your letter to Mr. Harry Ways, Chief, Washing- ton Aqueduct Division, concerning light- ing on Cabin John Bridge. Our present policy is to keep the bridge open to pedestrians throughout the winter months, even though it will be dark earlier in the evening. The vandalism which concerns us is not likely to occur in the early eve- ning. In accordance with an agreement between Mr. Gleason and me, Montgom- ery County has recently assumed respon- sibility for surface jurisdiction and main- tenance on MacArthur Boulevard. For many years prior to that, however, all streetlighting on MacArthur Boulevard had been provided by the County. At present, there are two poles with street lights on them at either end of the bridge. We discussed this problem with Mr. Kanz of the Montgomery County Department of Transportation, suggest- ing that spot-lights be placed on these poles to illuminate the bridge. He indi- cated that the County would probably be willing to undertake this project. This seems to be the quickest and best solution and I suggest your constituents contact the County officials and make their wishes known. You may be assur- ed of my cooperation. We look forward to passage of the Bill you have recently introduced to relieve the Washington Aqueduct of po- lice responsibilities on MacArthur Bou- levard. When the Montgomery County Police assume jurisdiction in this area, we would consider permitting the Coun- ty to establish the time of opening and closing of the bridge. In the interim, due to thellimited staff and funds avail able to the Washington Aqueduc°t for po~” lice activities and th e lack of lighting, we believe it is in the best interest of all con- cerned to continue to close the bridgeat 9:30pm. Sincerely, Robert McGarry Colonel, Corps of Engineers Editor’s note. Thanks to Ed Clark for making it possible to reprint this letter which was forwarded him by Congressman Gude. Mrs. Mildred B. White, wife of Bill White, 21 Carver Road, Cabin John, sud- denly passed away Sunday, 23 November 1975. The kindness of the citizens of Cabin John shall never be forgotten. I thank everyone for flowers, food, cards and help given during this trying period. Thanks again. Bill White i am i • • i i CHRISTMAS CHURCH SERVICES Scotland Mt. Ame Zion and Gibson Grove Mt.

Give us a call at GREEN SCENE 282-7080 and we Will be glad to send you a fact sheet about the proper care of these plants and the directions for the above projects. A SAFETY NOTE: A dried out Christmas tree is a fire hazard..,CKoose a tree that is fresh wit’h good green color, strong fragrance and plyable needles and provide your tree with plenty of water. There are commercial preparations available that help keep the needles from drying and dropping off. Avoid placing the tree near heat~sources, and check your Christmas ‘lights for frayed or damaged wiring.

By Morris Fradin …. Had President John F. Kennedy not been assassinated, he and his “Jackie” might often have visited their ol d friend and antique-restorer: Charles A. McGahan of 81.26 MacArthur Boulevard, Cabin John. This Jolly Irishman learned his trade in Scotland, so he could practice it in America on the treasures of the great, near-great and would-be-great His clients have included Corinne Griffith, former movie queen. She brought McGahan some roof shingles from Monti- cello, placed there by Thomas Jefferson in 1770. The “woodwizard” fashioned a pair of end tables from the old wood, thereby earning a chapter in Miss Griffith’s book “Antiques I Have Known.” Besides a fat fee, of course. Mac’s other patrons have been the ate Robert Kennedy, the Guggenheims, Arthur Godfrey, Martha Roundtree, Sen. William Proxmire. Also Katherine Anti. Porter, the William Randolph Hearst family, as well as the Chrysler, Hamilton and May clans. Recently, Mac restored an unusual grandfather’s clock damaged in a fire. Instead of chimes, this 10-fo0t high clock annouriced the timewith organ tunes. Its leather bellows, stored inside the 3~ foot wide, 20-inch deep “throat” were actuated by weights. The clock belongs to Jeane Dixon, famous clairvoyant, au- thoress, and friend of Washington nota- bles, Besides restoring antiques fo.r news-: worthy personalities, Mac sometimes lec- tures to women’s clubs on antiques. He also travels widely, identifying and ap- praising period pieces and discussing them with their owners. Mac is no stranger to the Stepher/ Decatur House, the President’s Guest House (Blair House), nor to the White House. He worked there in the 1930’s- kept busy by the Roosevelts. Also by James Farley, the then Postmaster Gene- ral, Frances Perkins, the then Secretary of Labor; J. Edgar Hoover,.and Gen. “Hap” Arnold. Mac suPervi.sed the wood panelings and “fixings” of all their offices. He also “did” the entire interiors and 10 or 12 directors’ offices in the Fed- era Reserve Building at 24th and Consti- tution Avenue. Mac considers it one of the most beautiful build’.m’~~s in the world, because of its imposing .(And expensiveI) ‘crystal chandeliers, foimtains, wood panel-• ling, draperies and furniture. Furniture!
