Coshocton Tribune, The (Newspaper) - January 6, 1967, Coshocton, Ohio City Teachers Take Action On Six Proposals By DON E. BEATTIE Coshocton's city school teachers voted overwhelmingly Thursday afternoon to pre- sent six proposals to the Coshocton Board of Education at its Jan. 19 meeting. The first proposal asks recognition of the Coshocton City Education Associaton's pro- fessional negotiating committee as agent for teachers in discussing Board policies pertain- ing to the profession. Also proposed is a salary structure study; uninterrupted lunch periods for all teachers; addition of qualified physical education teach- ers for the elementary schools and develop- ment of a well coordinated program; a re- adjustment of teacher's hours and a change and broadening of personal leave policies. The CCEA membership includes all 122 certified teachers and administrators in the city system. The six proposals were presented to the membership of CCEA at the high school auditorium Thursday. Eighty threr members attended and voted overwhelmingly in favor of toe six Items. The action yesterday was a development that climaxed more than three months study and preparation by the CCEA's board and committees. An outline of the six proposals was discussed at a Board of Education meeting early in December, when the outline distri- buted to teachers and administrators was included in the Board's December agenda. "The association welcomes the actions of the Board of Education this week increasing current salary schedules and providing a measure of the personal leave we are an officer of the CCEA told The Tribune Thursday. "The vote yesterday was in no respect, however, a reaction to the Board's decisions this week. The proposals by the CCEA have been under consideration for some months and are in accord with professional needs and recognition being sought by professional teachers throughout Ohio." It is the hope of our membership that Board action on these proposals will be taken quickly so that we can participate in discussions for the 190647 school year." The professional organization here is affiliated with the Ohio and National Educa- tion Associations and has existed in Coshoc- ton for many years. All teachers belong and participate in the CCEA's activities to better the teaching field and education in general. Salary schedule increases of per teacher in Coshocton were, voted by the Board at Tuesday's 1M7 orfaniutloM) meeting, which means an increase of for the balance of the annual school year. Also passed was a new policy on personal leave, allowing two days each Khoot year with pay. These measures are effective Jan, for the 196647 school year. Officers of the CCEA are Fred PosgnJ, president; Robert Vincent, vice president: Janke Fender, secretary and Orpha GarrV son, treasurer.

BEATTIE Sometimes it is interesting and helpful to look over a neighbor's shoulder. Particularly if the neighbor has seen success in a venture you are pursuing. You can learn a lot. Since we often hear around Coshocton praise and glowing reports on the industrial develop- ment progress Mount Ver- non has made, it is useful to take such a look at our northern neighbor. This week the Mount Vernon Area Development Foundation held its annual meeting elect officers, hear reports and do the things you do at an annual meeting. Some interesting facts and statements: In 1966 Mount Vernon secured three new Industries and had a fourth plant, previously secured, opened. One of the new plants nearing completion is that of Edmont, lac., a Coshocton-based industry. Secretary James Dally tion membership: "This is the biggest, most successful year the Foundation has experienced since it was begun in 1955. We must consider that it took us more than 10 years to get to the level we achieved this past year." The Foundation is looking for Industries willing to pay an acre for sites located in the remaining 60 acres open in the 93-acre Industrial Park formed and financed by Foundation funds raised on a local basis. When the park idea was started, the land was offered for an acre. Then it rose to ?1.000 an acre and the tab is now after improvements such as paved street, city water hydrants and supply, a railroad spur, fire protection and sanitary sewers have been added. The foundation has an option on 100 additional acres adjoining, the present park and hopes to use it for expansion purposes within the coming two years. And even with the success thus far, the venture isn't a profit maker for the original investors. The Foundation is meeting pay- ments on the original land purchased, Dally said, some sold to industries, but added money will be needed. Such ventures move slowly, but pay off immensely in the long pull in any commun- ity.

BEATTIE Coshocton County's community is facing a pressing financial problem. It is apparent today that the problem is simple to define. is needed as quickly as it can be obtained to bring about corrections and re- facing of the brick exterior shell on Coshocton County Memorial Hospital. The wall problem is not new. It has been under careful and extensive investigation and study by the Hospital's Operating Board and its Building Board for more than two years. The study has reached the point of a decision on securing funds required to re-do an exterior design that has proved unsuitable and has resulted in a shifting of the brick exterior shell from the main wall structures of the building. Thursday evening the Hospital's Operating and Building Boards met with the County Commissioners, Prosecutor James Freeman and several others to discuss steps to initiate repairs. Although no formal action has been taken as yet by any of the groups, the discussion of the problem Thursday seemd to indicate the following actions will be forthcoming: 1) Immediate provision for temporary work to slow further wall shell deterioration.

(UPI TELEPHOTO) Peace Talks Remote By STEWART HENSLEY WASHINGTON (UPI) The possibility of peace talks appeared as remote as ever today, despite a couple of North Vietnamese statements some foreign diplomats interpret- ed as a "softening" of Hanoi's position. Johnson administration officials said they could detect no real movement toward the peace table in the recent remarks of Hanoi's chief representative in Paris, Mai Van Bo, or of Premier Pham Van Dong. Mai Van Bo told a Paris press luncheon Thursday he thought his government would consider the possibility of negotiations if Washington ordered a "final and uncondition- al cessation" of U.S. bombing of North Vietnam. No Real Change Nor were U.S. officials willing to concede President Johnson has rejected a commis- sioned portrait of himself after making a stormy scene that caused Mrs. Johnson to wince. According to the artist, Peter fee president called the painting the "agllest thing I ever saw." The painting Is currently In Colnmbes where It will go on display Jan. 11. (UPI TELEPHOTO) that Pham Van Dong had enunciated any significant change in his country's position when he told an interviewer earlier this week that Hanoi's tough four-point peace program did not constitute "conditions" for talks, but had been set forth as an eventual "basis of settlement of the Vietnam problem." The White House and State Department maintained a public attitude of hopeful interest in the statements, plainly anxious not to give the Communists any grounds for accusing the United States of rebuffing any peace feelers. But privately administration officials said Mai Van Bo's declaration his country might consider some "contact" with the United States if the bombing stopped was totally unrealistic. They said the Red diplomat was, in effect, asking the United States to undertake a specific retreat on the military front in turn for nothing more than a vague promise that Hanoi would then consider whether it wanted to negotiate.

On a gray winter day with a foretaste of snow in the air, a footnote to history and the saga of a lonely confused man came to an end in the city where he was born. Rabbi David Gaubart conducted the services of the Conservative Jewish tradition and tried to console the members of Ruby's family in a brief eulogy. After that would come the burial beside his parents' graves in the snow-covered Westlawn cemetery. ministration sources nevertheless were in- trigued by the new effort Hanoi seemed to be making to enunciate its demands in a form which gave them the superficial appearance of somewhat greater flexibility. Although Hanoi has not said anything that appeared to alter her basic position, the fact the Communists were seeking to put them- selves in a more reasonable light might have some significance for the future. Diplomats here saw three posible reasons for the change in wording Hanoi made this week. They said the North Vietnamese might be- preparing to make some speci- fic concession in an effort to get to the peace table, although what they have said so far does not constitute any change. refining their propaganda output to make a more sophisticated drive for international support. up trial balloons to test the reaction in Red China to any possible Hanoi concessions which might be under considera- tion. McCormack Faces Woes On Powell By DANIEL RAPOPORT WASHINGTON (UPI) Speaker John W. McCormack faces an uphill fight if he tries to save for Rep. Adam Clayton Powell both his House seat and his committee chairman- ship. The speaker was reported Thursday to have passed the word privately to leaders of the Democratic party's liberal wing in the House that he was against any attempts to unseat Powell or to strip him his chairman- ship of the Education and Labor Committee. According to one source, McCormack feels that if any action is to be taken against the flamboyant Harlem Democrat it should be taken by members of the committee. But some Democratic liberals feel that the speaker, back in Washington for the first time in two months, may have misjudged the temper of the House. Many lawmakers of both parties and all political persuasions want some action taken against Powell. They claim his freewheeling ways bring discredit to all congressmen and, more importantly, complaints from consti- tuents. Especially irksome to them are his lengthy and well publicized battles with the New York courts over a libel judgment he owes a Harlem widow. So far Powell has refused to pay, piling one unsuccessful appeal atop another. Be- cause of his failure to pay, he is now in civil and criminal contempt of court and is subject to arrest any time he sets foot in New York state. McCormack's position, according to a House member who met with him Thursday, is of is the man his constituents want to represent them. He won 74.1 per cent of the vote in last November's election despite reams of ad- verse publicity. The Hospital's Building Board, with assur- ances from the Commissioners that will be provided, will take this temporary action. 2) Immediate steps by the Commissioners to place a four or five-year levy of approximately a half mill on the May primary ballot to raise the needed funds to initiate reconstruction bids and work as early this summer as is possible, and 3) Creation of a public information committee to organize and disperse full and comprehensive information to the citizens of the County about the problem, the costs and the solution. None of these steps have yet been taken; But action from all three official groups wfll be forthcoming in a matter of days. The meeting Thursday was called to Jell thinking on the problem and to Inform all concerned about the professional studies, inquiries and conclusions that have been assembled during the period since the first signs of the construction and design fault The Boards have conferred extensively over the years with the building's original architect, state and federal officials who approved the original plans and designs and with professional structural eningeering con- sultants to determine the problem, the cause and the responsibilities for the deterioration in the shell of brick lining the exterior walls, Opinions of the experts varied as the studies progressed. But in final analysis, the consensus is that financial responsibility for the faulty design cannot be placed upon. designers or contractors. The type of design and construction employed was used on a number of public buildings for several years and later aban- doned after difficulties similar to those to Coshocton were found. Financing this venture here, under the organizational structure governing Memorial Hospital, places responsibility for the costs directly upon the Commissioners, who ap- point the Boards operating and maintaining the hospital. The Commissioners explained at last night's discussion that funds are not avail- able from the county's general fund to finance such a project. But when a levy is passed in May to raise the funds, the Commission can borrow needed monies to start work immediately in anticipation of the issuance of bonds and revenues to be derived from a four or five- year levy. Fifty five percent approval will be required at the May primary. Meanwhile, temporary repair measure! will be initated to insure maintenance and safety of the exterior brick shell until complete replacement can be achieved.
