for certificates of competency as mine foremen, assistant mine fore-
men, and fire bosses. The Bureau of Mines in cooperation with the
University of Maryland and the Boards of Education for Allegany and
Garrett counties conducts classes in mining operations throughout
the western part of the State. The Bureau, under an Act of 1949, is
required to furnish gaseous training to men applying for first-class
certificates and file boss certificates of competency. This work is
being done in cooperation with the United States Bureau of Mines
(Code 1951, Art. 66C, secs. 478-497).

Mine Examining Board

The Mine Examining Board consists of the Director of the Bureau
of Mines, who also acts as Chairman of the Board, and two persons
appointed by the Governor, one representing the miners and the other
the operators. Each appointee serves until his successor is appointed
and qualifies. The Board examines applicants for the rating of first-
class mine foreman and fire-boss and issues "certificates of compe-
tency" to each successful applicant upon payment of the stipulated fee
(Code 1951, Art. 66C, secs. 478-497).

The Department of Research and Education was created in 1941
to function as a fact gathering and fact disseminating agency in the
promotion of conservation work in Maryland, and to carry on the
work of the State Weather Service. Supervision of the Department
is vested in a Commission of Research and Education, consisting of
five members appointed by the Governor from among the citizens of
the State, each of whom must have either special training in or expe-
rience with natural resources. The members are appointed for terms
of five years with overlapping tenure of office. The members of the
Commission select their Chairman and appoint the Director of the
Department and such staff members as may be necessary (Code
1951, Art. 66G, secs. 18-21).

The Department maintains four major programs—research, educa-
tion, hatcheries, and the State Weather Service. The center for the
research and the educational program is at Solomons Island, the
Chesapeake Biological Laboratory. The research program is concerned
primarily with the applied aspects of conservation. Biological and eco-
nomic problems, including hydrography and pollution, dealing with the
more prominent fisheries have been emphasized. A periodical, re-
search reports and educational pamphlets are issued. Emphasis in
education is on the school and college level. Lectures and demonstra-
tions are provided for adults through clubs and other agencies.
