"The people of this community, our businessmen and our manufacturers, will make the decision whether we will have a new industry. Their wholehearted support of a $200,000 fund campaign will be that answer.’* This was the challenge dropped yesterday when officials of the Community Improvement Corp. of Tuscarawas County announced that negotiations with a top women’s apparel manufacturer to locate a plant in the county are now at the stage where the Tuscarawas County community must express its interest in industrial growth in terms of dollars. Identity of the manufacturer will be made within a week William Marino, president of Wilmar Furniture Inc. of Dover, was named campaign chairman to raise the funds needed to build a pilot plant for the company and provide working capital for it and future industrial negotiations. "The company is ready to move into temporary quarters for its training program and so, the time has come for Tuscarawas Countians to meet the few commitments they must fulfill in order to assure growth of our community,’’ Marino stated.

Tanganyika Mutiny Quietly Withdrawn DAR ES SALAAM, Tanganyika (AP)—President Julius Ny-•rere said in a radio announcement that army mutiners who early today held this city to ransom had returned quietly to their barracks. For a few hours the British feared an African nationalist reolutkm that recently swept tile sultan from his throne in nearby Zanzibar had spread to Tanganyika, one of Hie most stable of' the former British colonies in Africa. A few hundred armed Tanganyika soldiers, demanding better pay and living conditions, had held their British officers as hostage for 12 hours. About SO Brtish officers were reported seized. Britain has no troops stationed In Tanganyika except for British officers on loan to help train the Tanganyika army. Neyeere blamed the incident on a misunderstanding, but said it had been settled after he intervened. Before the mutinous soldiers returned to camp, there were reports of beatings and looting by local Africans who took advantage of the situation. About 50 U.S. government employes plus their dependents are in Tanganyika. The U.S. Embassy in London received a message that so far as was known, all Americans were safe. The Americans include some 25 members of the Peace Corps, most of them engaged in a road-building project and a teaching program outside the capital. Word reaching Nairobi, in neighboring Kenya, said troops of one battalion of the Tanganyika Rifles, the country’s army, seized a barracks IO miles from Dar es Salaam. Then they moved into the capital and grabbed the airport, the cable office, the post office and the official residence of President Juliuu Nyerere. First accounts indicated the mutiny was not particularly political in character. The soldiers were said to be disgruntled over their pay and conditions. It also was understood that some of the army was not involved. The outbreak came two days after "‘Field Marshal" John Okello, military chief of the Zanzibar revolution, flew to See TANGANYIKA, Page I HCF Organization Has Meeting Tonight Trustees of the Dover-New Philadelphia United Community Fund wiU meet tonight at 8 in the YMCA to select new members and to elect officers for the 1964 organization.

The man, who passed the bill at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, was described as 5-10, wearing a Navy-blue trench coat and a white shirt with tie. While no expert has examined the bill, police feel it is counterfeit. $200,000.

Young, suddenly confronted with a battle for his political life, keynoted the Ohio Democratic pre-primary convention today with a prediction the party will win November’s election. “Tfiis year we Ohio Democrats will carry Ohio and help mightily to elect Lyndon B. Johnson President of the United States, thus assuring the future of all Americans,’’ the 74-year old senator told about 500 party leaders from all corners of the state. Still hanging fire, for a decision later in the day, is the question of whether the first preprimary convention in many years will endorse Young for reelection or go along with Marine Lt. Col. John H. Glenn Jr., who jumped into the senatorial race last Friday. Organization stalwarts who informally gave Young the nod nearly two weks ago have assured Young they do not plan to turn their backs on him in favor of the former astronaut. Young said he wants the dorsement. en- Aids Brother, But No Thanks A Doverite who decided a while back he was his brother’s keeper is a disappointed man today. Jimmy Hodges, SO, of West Virginia, has had trouble with the law. He has served about IO years in Moundsville State Prison, W. Va., according to his brother, William, owner-manager of Bill’s Cab Co. of 120Vi N. Tuscarawas Ave. William notified Dover police at 7 this morning that his brother, whom he had recently hired as a driver, had left the area with approximately $60in company funds sometime between midnight and 6:45 a.m. “Jimmy’s been in a lot of trouble and I thought if I gave him chance I could help him. I guess I can’t, though," William said. His brother has been on parole l or 3 or 4 months for breaking and entering. Because William was unwilling to press charges against his brother, Dover police cannot arrest him even if he was ocated. Hodges said he would notify his brother’s parole officer, however.

It will he light, but sometimes pointed, in nature and spiced with items that would not generally be found in the regular news column.) By CHARLEY DICKENS 'jpaxpayera are footing the bill for campaign expenses of some present county officeholders—or party leaders on the county payroll. How so? Well, certain individuals employed by the county are chasing all over the community getting signatures on petitions or notarizing petitions. One we know of is using a county car. Others are performing similar party tasks while being paid by taxpayers to carry out public duties. Meanwhile, those not in office but running for nomination at the May primary, must use their own transportation and pay their own expenses, and have petitions signed on their own time. If the in-office candidate is a Democrat then Republicans who pay taxes are helping him seek election, and vice versa. It isn’t kosher! Early Tax Action Urged In LBJ Economic Review There's hardly a bank in business today that hasn’t caught hail Columbia because it has reported paid interest for 1963 to Uncle Sam, thereby adding to the tax-payment woes of customers. But don’t blame the savings institutions, folks. They’re just obeying a Congress-passed law! By RAYMOND J. CROWLEY Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - President Johnson predicted today record-smashing prosperity in 1964 if Congress acts—“not in one or two or three months but now"—(Mi the $11 billion tax cut. Without it, Johnson warned the legislators, the rosy picture could become harsh—“dashed expectation could turn expansion into recession." In his first economic report to Congress, the new President also cautioned against inflationary price rises. “A series of specific price increases in recent months—especially in manufactured goods— gives me some cause for concern," he said, although he doesn’t anticipate a renewal of the wage-price spiral. He urged business and labor to continue their “excellent" record of price and cost settlements but said he is setting up an “early warning system" by government agencies to guard against potentially inflationary price and wage increases. “In the face of a 44 per cent increase in corporate profits in less than three years and the prospect of further increases to come with the tax cut, I see no warrant for inflationary price rises," he declared. In the economic report to Congress, required annually under the 1946 Employment Act, Johnson made clear he was the new wagonmaster for the New Frontier legislative train. And he pointed with pride at the big steps the country made since 1961, years under Democratic administrations. “Our record $100 billion expansion since early 1961 has carried us past important milestones in the march toward a better life," he said. Turning to last year specifically, he said these advances were made for the first time in history: —The Gross National Product (GNP) — The total output of goods and services—passed the $600 billion mark by year-end. PRITZ NAMES WATER CLERK Warren Swaldo Gets Phila Post Earl L. aine of 115 3rd St. SW, New Philadelphia, has received the following letter from the Sunday Telegraph in London: “The editor of the Sunday Telegraph has much pleasure in acknowledging your kind donation to the Kennedy Memorial Fund." Shortly after the John F. Kennedy assassination, Cline heard about the fund and promptly dispatched $108.50 to London. That was the limit placed on contributions. Evidently one service overlooked when Dover Board of Education arranged for parking area adjacent to the new physical education plant was that for snow removal. Parking there has been somewhat limited with no removal made at any time to date. Christmas has sped by but plans already are evident for the 1964 holidays—or have the downtown lighting decorations and tree stakes in vacant lots just been forgotten?

Tie steering committee is to determine the areas of vocational education to be included, develop estimates of costs of buildings and equipment, determine school districts to be included and prepare a plan for the school in accordance with the outline provided in the recent survey and submit it to the State Board of Education. Once the plan is approved by the state board, the committee will resubmit the proposal to the 14 districts for final approval and once approved, will select the operating board for the vocational high school. The operating board, under Ohio law, can be either the colin- Women...

Purpose of the operating board includes the development of the rules, procedures for operations, administration and setting up the building bond issue and operating levies. Supt. Laws stated that he hoped the steering committee could be organized by late February to meet the proposed timetable of a November vote on the bond issue and levy. Estimates of building and equipment costs will be distributed at the Feb. 5 meeting. It was pointed out that if all school districts participate, the county’} $200,000,000 valuation would yield the necessary building funds with less than a one-mill issue over IO years.
