residents of the Potomac River Conservancy District, who are ap-
pointed by the Governor for two-year terms (Code 1957, Art. 43, sees.
407, 408). The Commission has jurisdiction over the Potomac River
Conservancy District, which was created by the enabling Act. The Dis-
trict embraces an area of approximately 14,500 square miles with an
estimated population of 2,500,00O. The Commission (1) coordinates, tab-
ulates, and summarizes existing data on the character, pollution, and
condition of streams in the Conservancy District; (2) supplements
existing data, when necessary, by conducting investigations; (3) pro-
motes adoption by the signatory bodies of uniform legislation for the
control of stream pollution; (4) disseminates information to the public
on the effects of stream pollution and the objectives of the Commission;
(5) cooperates with other organizations in studies of treatment meth-
ods for sewage and industrial wastes; (6) recommends to signa-
tory bodies standards for cleanliness of streams.

The Interstate Commission is now in process of amending the
compact to enable it to function not only in water pollution control
matters, but also in water resources conservation in the Basin. Mary-
land (Chapter 29, Acts of 1960), and West Virginia legislatures have
adopted these amendments and Pennsylvania is expected to pass them
in the current legislative session.

The Commission is financed by appropriations from each of the
participating bodies.

The Southern Regional Education Board operates under the terms
of the Southern Regional Education Compact of 1949, which the
legislature of Maryland ratified by Chapter 282, Acts of 1949. Fifteen
other states have also ratified the Compact. The purpose of the Com-
pact is to develop graduate, professional, and technical education in
the South without unnecessary duplication. The Southern Regional
Education Board is active in approximately twenty-five academic fields.
It administers the regional education contracts through which states
lacking schools in certain fields are able to secure training for their
students at institutions operated either by other states or by private
corporations. The Board also studies needs and resources in various
academic fields and joins with universities in Memoranda of Agree-
ment to plan the development of specific programs on a regional
basis. The University of Maryland carries on the administrative
work of the Board in Maryland (Code 1957, Art. 41, sees. 185-88)
The Maryland representatives on the Board are the Governor and
four other persons appointed by him.
