Parks and Cemetery Committee Chairman Robert Bair recommended no name change and Council members later concurred in toe committee’s decision. The name change had been proposed in December. The matter was one of many considered Monday night during a 2-hour session. Council went along with a safety committee recommendation that a request for a blinker light at Race St. and Slingluff Ave. be denied, and that no action be taken by toe finance committee at the present time on pay adjustments requested for 2 members of toe Fire Department. Finance Commute Chairman Eugene Bowers said that negotiations on pay now would set a precedent and open the door to any other municipal employes with a pay problem. He said the committee will consider the request when new pay scales are discussed. Approved following committee study were the following: Installation of a street light on S. Tuscarawas Ave. at the Tuscarawas County Fairgrounds, safety; Legislation for advertising for bids for. the renovation of the Electric Light Office at a preliminary cost estimate of $4,600, building; New lighting for the Engineer's Office and patch plastering and painting of Council Chambers, Engineer’s office and stair and hallways at a combined total cost of approximately $1,800, building; Installation of a police pistol target range in the basement of Memorial Hall with materials and labor mostly donated, building; Installation of a 10-inch storm sewer in toe area of W.

He was city treasurer in 1934 through 1937, city auditor from 1938 through 1945, city service department supervisor in 1955, and then went to his soon-to-be-relieved position. He also served as chief deputy county auditor from 1946 through 1950, worked for a while with Warner A Swasey Co., and was secretary of Hicks Roofing Inc., general contractors. It all began when he was 16 years of age, as a laborer with the American Sheet & Tin Plate Co. He was employed there un- See SERVICE, Pare 12 LBJ SIGNALS END TO U. S. SPENDING CUTS DOT FISCAL PRINT By STERLING F. GREEN Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - President Johnson called a turnabout to the long upward march of federal spending today with a cost-cutting, tax-cutting, $97.9-billion budget aimed at the nation’s pockets of poverty. Johnson sent Congress a fiscal 1965 budget message which confidently assumed toe “earliest possible” tax reduction. He termed it a “giant step toward. . .a balanced budget in a full-employment, full-prosper-ity economy.” The budget would carve $1-3 billion and 27,000 civilians from toe Defense Department. He proposed a $54-billion national defense effort, which includes along with actual military expenditures such costs as civil defense, stockpiling and atomic weapons procurement. Other cuts would hit the Agriculture Department, the Post Office, the Atomic Energy Commission, and the Veterans Administration. The new fiscal blueprint also would thin slightly the over-all ranks of federal jobholders, sell off a billion-dollar batch of government assets and cut the deficit in half—from $10 billion this All Parties 'Satisfied' With Ohio Dems Action COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Registered Democratic voters will decide without a recommendation from the Ohio party organization between Lt. Col. John H. Glenn Jr. and incumbent U.S. Sen. Stephen M. Young for Senate nomination in Ohio’s May 5 primary election. The Glenn camp, Young and State Democratic Chairman William L. Coleman all say they are satisfied with toe outcome of Monday’s political hassle. County Dems Vote 4-3 For Endorsement By Richard Zimmerman Daily Reporter Columbus Bureau COLUMBUS — Tuscarawas County delegates split their vote on the motion that dissolved the Democratic pre-primary convention, but the majority supported the losing cause of Sen. Stephen M. Young. Going against most of the counties in its area, the Tuscarawas delegation voted 4 to 3 in favor of a rule that would have required the convention to endorse one, but only one, candidate for each office. Forces supporting Col. John II. Glenn wanted no endorsement or a double endorsement. However, it is known that several members of the delegation who voted for Young had deep private doubts about his ability to win and cast their vote for him only because he was the incumbent. Rep. Jess Dempster, for one, predicted Young will eventually drop out of the race in favor of Glenn and favored the incumbent senator at the convention. His prediction is not supported by most observers. But toe newcomer to politics, Glenn, appears to be the big winner. The state’s first preprimary political convention since adoption of the popular-primary system two generations ago broke up without endorsement for either Young of Glenn—and as a result, for nobody for any office at stake this year. It was “mission .accomplished” for backers of Glenn, the 42-year-old Marine Corps veteran who rocketed to fame 23 months ago as the first American to orbit the earth. Young said in Washington Monday night that the convention result left him “very serene and contented” and expectant of victory. But the 74-year-old senator, opposed by a man 32 years his junior, had called for a showdown on endorsement for whatever value it might have had in getting the grass-roots party forces out in his behalf.

Kenneth Dean.” The $30 draft was made out. poetically enough, to “Roscoe Proffitt.” The check, cashed in a Dover store, was drawn on an old form of the Citizens Bank in New Philadelphia, now a Reeves Bank branch, and was spotted by a teller there after being processed. Fund Packets Ready Mrs. James Lonergan, chairman of the March of Dimes drive in Dover, asks that all captains pick up their fund campaign packets Wednesday at her home, 1734 McMillan St. AT NCTOWN The New Philadelphia Board of Education approved a 1964 appropriation of $1,327,163, retained its head football coach and discussed lack of money, politics, and cafeteria and lunchroom procedures at last night’s 3-hour session. The financial picture was clouded somewhat with the announcement that anticipated receipts this year will be $29,835 less than the proposed operating needs, thus necessitating a “belt - tightening” program in some areas. The deficit is more realistic when considering the $20,336 balance carried over from 1963. During the discussion, it was explained that New Philadelphia schools lost $37,000 in state foundation money as a result of the 1962 re-evaluation, which raised the district’s valuation and thereby, under the fund formula, decreased state support. Listed In the general fund receipts are: $774,341 in general property taxes; $397,385 in state foundation money, $100,000 in leans, and $35,000 as miscellaneous. In 1963, the board spent $1,-191,854 exclusive of loans and a total of $2,067,270, including loans and the construction fund. Major items in the appropriation was $840,489 for salaries of instructors, which represents a $53,000 increase over that paid to teachers in 1963. On recommendation of Supt. Leon Force, Al Christopher was renamed head football coach for 1964-65, with his salary to be set at the usual time. The resolution passed unanimously with no discussion. Discussion of the new cafeteria terday, was touched off by Richard    Werner’s    report    of    the building and grounds committee. Werner listed several suggestions for improvement of service and cited a need for an additional large steam kettle, which was then    purchased    by the board. The    cafeteria served    565    stu dents, according to Force. The board also approved a new    lunchroom    policy    for    ele mentary schools in response to See PHILA SCHOOLS.

Stating that he could not get along with his superiors and that “conditions had been growing steadily worse the last 2 years,” Studd claimed “things finally came to a head over an incident that occurred Saturday morning while he was on duty. He told council that he ordered a truck towed from E. Canal St. at 3 a.m. Saturday. He added that charges filed by him against the owner of the truck were dismissed later on the suggestion of City Solicitor Eugene Weir. Studd charged he felt he did not have the backing of his superiors and that he was being “set up for a false arrest suit.” “This was just a little thing on top of other things in the past,” he stated. When Council praised Studd’s efforts as a policeman, he replied: “It is almost impossible to do a good job under present working conditions.” In discussing Studd’s resignation, Councilman Terrance Postel called for more harmony between departments. Councilman Carl Figenscher said the basic reason QUITS, Page 3 year to $4.9 billion in the federal year starting July I. At year’s end, June 30, 1965, the national debt will have increased from $311.8 billion to $317 billion, he estimated. Nevertheless it is a “compassionate” budget, Johnson said, providing history’s heaviest spending for “our nation’s most important resource — its oeo- ple.” He asked more than Si billion for a package attack on the roots of misery. Johnson told the legislators he was guided, in this first major economic task of his presidency, by the principle that “an austere budget need not be and should not be a standstill budget,” and explained: “When vigorous pruning of old programs and procedures releases the funds to meet new challenges and opportunities, economy becomes the companion of progress. . . “A government that is strong, a government that is solvent, a government that is compassionate is the kind of government that endures.” See FISCAL CUTS, Page ll IN DOVER Board Seeks Levy For TB Directors of the Tuscarawas County TB & Health Assn.* went on record at last night’s quarterly meeting urging County Commissioners to place a levy for the purpose of financing rising costs of the tuberculosis program in the county. The board asked the commissioners to consider placing the issue on toe May primary ballot. Hie board also approved the drafting of a letter to commissioners requesting a meeting within the next 30 days to renegotiate the existing agreement between the TB & Health Assn., Commissioners and the County Health Department. The agreement now calls for an annual outlay of $2,500 by the association for operation of the TB Clinic. The board also approved payment of $1,875, due for 1963 under the agreement. Discussion on the levy indicated that 2-tenths of a mill should cover toe cost of TB care, which, last year, cost the county $17,-446 for care of patients in hospitals, another $7,500 for work See LEVY, Page 5 ON THE INSIDE r m 'mrnnmmm \ * Around The World............5 Dear Abby ..................15 Dr. Alvarez .................13 Dr. Crane....................15 Goren On Bridge............13 Hospital News ................5 Obituaries ....................2 Sports .......—............9-10 Television ...................15 Women’s Page................6 Your Horoscope .............13 Don Packard (left), Dover Jaycee treasurer, presents a check for three $100 memberships in the OIC to fund campaign chairman William Marino. * • Dover In CIC Jaycees Join Fund Drive The Dover Junior Chamber of Commerce last night voted to purchase three $100 memberships in the Community Improvement Corp. of Tuscarawas County in its campaign to raise $200,000 for establishing a women’s apparel plant in this area.

Marino was informed of the enthusiasm generated at the Jaycee meeting for the new plant and Marino told Donald Packer, club treasurer, that he had received numerous calls in response to yesterday’s announcement of the $200,000 campaign. Carl Pissocra of The National Bank of Dover was named CIC representative for the Jaycees.
