OOSSjblV ill 1965. ii IU Construction officials from DI vision ll and the State Highway Department in Columbus held an all-day seminar yesterday in Hotel Reeves to air forthcoming highway building programs in this area. A rundown of county projects shows the following: Sale date of the 5-mile stretch of the Routes 250-8 bypass around New Philadelphia, from Green Gables Interchange to Wills Dip, has been set back until June. Originally slated for sale April 14, the project has been deferred because of a delay in plans. Division ll officials report the bypass plans now are 90 per cent complete. Of the 80 property owners involved in the first of the 2-part phase of the 4-lane limited access highway, which eventually will link the Route 36 bypass at Uhrichsville to Interstate 77, a total of 59 have agreed to sale terms. The Highway Department also has IO appropriation cases pending in the 5-mile section.

President Johnson notified Gov. James A. Rhodes Tuesday that initial federal assistance, in the form of a $250,000 allocation, has | been authorized. Professor New Legal Counsel In Ruby's Case DALLAS, Tex. (AP)—Dr. Hubert Winston Smith, college professor who is Jack Ruby’s new head legal counsel, indicates he will pursue new lines of defense in seeking to reverse Ruby’s death sentence. Smith, 56, director of the University of Texas Law School’s Law-Science Institute, was introduced Tuesday night as chief defense lawyer by Eva Grant, Ruby’s sister. A graduate of Harvard’s law and medical schools, Smith said he entered the case, without fee, to see that every relevant issue of the Ruby case was examined •scientifically by “the best medical and legal aid available.” He met Ruby for the first time Tuesday but said he had kept up with the trial through another defense lawyer, Joe Tonahill. Ruby was convicted March 14 of slaying Lee Harvey Oswald, President John F. Kennedy’s accused assassin, and sentenced to death after a month-long trial. Ruby’s family dismissed Melvin M. Belli of San Francisco, their chief lawyer after his criticism of Dallas and the verdict. A Houston lawyer, Percy Fore- The President told Rhodes in a telegram that the Office of Emergency Planning, which made the initial allocation, would be authorized to provide supplemental allocations to Ohioans if necessary. The disaster area, stricken by the flooding Ohio River earlier this month, covers 44 counties previously designated by the governor as needing aid. In a preliminary report, Rhodes listed damage to public property at $2,665,550, damage to private property at $6,669,750 and the estimated minimum federal assistance required at $2,-132,400. Soon after the first allocation was announced, the civil defense division of the Adjutant General’s Department set up four meetings. The division will explain provisions of Public Law 875 under which federal funds can be made available for certain approved emergency projects involving publicly owned property. James F. Worster Sr., deputy director of civil defense, said the meetings would be in Chillicothe at 1:30 p m. today at the Elks Lodge and Club; at 1:30 p.m. Thursday at the Hamilton County civil defense headquarters in Cincinnati; at 1:30 p.m. Friday in the basement assembly room of the courthouse in Marietta, and at 1:30 p.m. Saturday in the basement jury room of the courthouse in Akron.

Reischauer. “On behalf of the people of Japan, I express my deepest regrets for the stabbing of Mr. Reischauer by a Japanese youth,” the gray-haired premier said in Japanese. Reischauer was reported recovering and his doctor said the wound in his right thigh should be healed in about two weeks. V ^•Weathervane YESTERDAY High 70 Low 43 Elsewhere In U.S. High IiOW Pr.

Instead, U.S. Minister John Emmerson read a message from Reischauer in which he said he wanted to emphasize that the “unfortunate incident —or any such irresponsible incident—could have no possible effect on our great partnership.” Ikeda expressed hope that the success of the telecast would “further promote the friendly ties” between the United States and Japan. A two-way telecast between the United States and Japan is scheduled Friday, and the Japanese hope to be able to televise the Tokyo Olympics in October to the world via satellite. The telecast today included a number of scenic shots that were transmitted live from Tokyo. The remarks by Ikeda and Emmerson had been taped in advance, however.

Harold Trachsel, Lester Garretson and Sy Breniser, are shown installing new aluminum window frames in the Tuscarawas Avenue Elementary building in New Philadelphia. The old frames began to bow out last year after the building apparently settled. Installation of the new windows is one of the last phases in the $600,000-plus remodeling and new construction project conducted by the board of education throughout the system during the last year. WITHOUT ADDITIONAL AUSTERITY School Funds Now Available By Richard Zimmerman Reporter Columbus Bureau COLUMBUS—Confronted with figures from his own office, Finance Director Richard Kra-bach admitted that money for a deficiency school foundation is available at this moment—and without further austerity. In an exclusive interview with the Daily Reporter’s Columbus Bureau, Krabach acknowledged that at the beginning of this month the additional $3 million needed to boost the payment to public schools was available. It was the result of low estimates on tax revenues and low-er-than-expected expenditures. Yet the official explanation for the call for more austerity is still given by the governor’s office as “an effort to raise the $3 million needed for schools.” Krabach defends the move towards further austerity by claiming the $3 million will drain his “cushion” and that he would like to save an additional $1 million through new cuts for any unforseen emergency. While the finance director’s figures are not as healthy as some in his own party are claim ing, they do put to rest a long and involved argument whether the money is available for the next school foundation payment, due the last of May. And Krabach admits his job is to be “as pessimistic as possible.” It is expected that by the end erf the calendar year the school deficiency appropriation will amount to between $8.5 and $10 million, but only $3 million is needed this fiscal year. Others, including Senate Majority Leader C. Stanley Mech-em, think Krabach is being too unrealistic. For example, while Krabach sets the sales tax increase at 2 and one-fourth per cent, Mechem sees it as 7 per cent. State Treasurer John Herbert puts the figure at 4 per cent increase. Krabach’s estimate that the cigaret tax revenues will be down $3 million from estimates also has been questioned, but he is supported in this contention by Herbert. The administration’s immediate claim that new austerity would have to be invoked in or- See SCHOOL, Page 2 Mississippi Negroes Renew Vole Campaign GREENWOOD, Miss. (AP)— Negroes plan to march on the court house today—despite warnings from city officials—to renew a voter registration campaign which spawned violence when it first started just one year ago. Three burlap-draped crosses burned Tuesday night in this city of 23,000, located in the heart of the cotton-growing Mississippi delta. Negroes outnumber whites nearly 2-1 in the area. Mayor Charles E. Sampson called on Greenwood residents to stay away from any areas where demonstrations might occur. “Demonstrators thrive on attention,” said Sampson. “If they don’t get it, they will soon leave Us alone.” He said police would not per mit any marches or organized formations on city streets and sidewalks. Police, using a trained dog, dispersed civil rights demonstrators marching on the Leflore County court house several times last March. The cross burnings were the first such in at least IO years, police said. One cross—about five feet tall—flared on the courthouse lawn. Police watched it burn out. Another was set along a busy street in a predominantly white residential area and the third See MISSISSIPPI, Page 2 FIGHTS BACK FROM SURGERY Mac Promises Best Effort' Area Worker Hospitalized STRASBERG — Ivan Huffman, 63, of 215 3rd St. SW is listed as “good” today in Canton Aultman Hospital recovering from injuries received Monday morning in a mishap at Canton Drop Forge Co. According to relatives, Huffman was struck in the left leg by a piece of steel thrown from a die. His leg was broken just below the hip and the steel severed a large artery. He also sustained a broken nose and numerous cuts and bruises. He was listed as “critical” when admitted, but was taken off the “critical list” Tuesday morning after undergoing a 4Vi-hour operation on Monday. DAY BRIGHTENER What’s all this talk about getting rich the hard way? Is there any other? Jesus Is The Door To Christian Faith By REV. JOHN S. MOORE A l this time of the year the Christian might profitably meditate upon the phrases of Jesus in which he uses the term:    I am. ’ In these phrases, Jesus offers us pictures of how God works in our lives. They indicate the thoughts of Jesus on how God views the full, abundant life which Christ came to give us. In the loth chapter of St. John there are the phrases, “I am the good shepherd” and “I am the door." The audience that heard these words was made up of shepherds. They knew what it meant to be a good shepherd and to lead a flock safely back into the fold at night. Then the shepherd would lie See JESUS, P igc ll ll Tune " In I eel i tate.. Columbus Flier Hopes For Break From Weatherman HAMILTON, Bermuda (AP)— Mrs. Jerrie Mock, Columbus, Ohio, housewrife-aviatrix stranded here by bad weather since last Saturday, hoped to resume her around the world flight today. Weather permitting, she was to take off for the second hop of her journey and arrive in the Azores late in the day. She said she might make a night flight if the weather holds up departure another day. Mrs. Mock saki in that event, she would take along extra gas and try for Spain or Africa “if I can’t find the Azores.” She said the 2,200-mile Azores hop “will be the longest and most difficult of my flight.” Mrs. Mock, who left Columbus last Friday, hopes to become the first wximan in history to circle the globe by plane alone. WASHINGTON (AP) - Following his own prom use “to do the very best I can,” Gen. Douglas MacArthur was reported alert today and making satisfactory progress in recovery from the shock of two major operations in 17 days. Col. Donald A. Campbell, executive officer of Walter Reed Army Medical Center, said this morning: “Gen. MacArthur continues to progress satisfactorily indicating a better than average post-operate course. He is alert and conversing.” Under questioning, Campbell said his language meant the 84-year-old general of the Army was doing better than the average of patents who have been through the same kind of experience. The new report followed earlier word from doctors that while the outlook is still “guarded,” MacArthur was better than we had any right to hope for.” “There is good reason to hope progress will continue favorably,” they had reported earlier. However, U.S. Army Surgeon General Leonard D. Heaton said he could not say when the general would pass his crisis. The plans were to keep him in the emergency - equipped recovery room of the Walter Reed Army Medical Center, probably for a few days. When his condition warrants, the general will be returned to his suite of rooms in the Ward 8 section, reserved by the Army for its most important patients. See ‘BEST EFFORT’, Page ll 5 County Nursing Homes Receive Wiring 'Directions' Five nursing homes in the county have been cited by the State Health Department for electrical wiring violations, according to Norman Miller, supervising sanitarian of the County Health Department. They are: the Karl Nursing Home of 227 W. 6th St., Dover; Valley Manor Nursing Home and annex of New Philadelphia; Twin City Nursing Home of 532 Trenton Ave. and Kobelt Nursing Home of 338 Trenton Ave., Uhrichsville, and Donna Marie Nursing Home of 509 Grant St., Dennison. In a letter directed to the homes by Dr. Emmett W. Ar- 'The new Zerox duplicating ma-chine almost arrived at the County Recorder’s Office this morning. In fact, it was just outside the door. However, the wrong trucking firm from Canton was making the delivery and its truck was not equipped w'ith lift to unload the heavy piece of equipment. So the trucker headed back to Canton to drop the machine off at the right firm. nold, state health director, the owners have 30 days from March 17 to correct the violations, or appeal the infractions at a hearing before Dr. Arnold or an authorized representative. If a nursing home does not comply with the orders or set a hearing date, the home’s license will be revoked. Dr. Arnold stated that 503 homes have been notified of infractions after inspections, adding that 170 of them have reported corrections since receipt of license revocation notices. He pointed out that inspection of the state's 1.200 homes is expected to be completed by today and that: a reinspection will then follow'. The campaign is the result of new state regulations stemming from the Fitchville nursing home fire fatal to 60 patients. C. Ontrary came in yesterday to say that seeing so many persons, including the grey haired lady shopping in Kroger’s, who cuddle those transistor radios to their ears in public, reminded him of what a psychiatrist had to suggest about them. The psychiatrist said:    “This fondling of the transistor is probably a reversion to one’s babyhood days when a bottle, or a rattle or a squeaky doll tended to soothe the baby’s feelings and keep him quiet, even in a crowd.” If you want to know why Atty, Jim Stephenson will be riding in a Falcon wagon, the reason seems to be that he pulled a side muscle propelling his little midget around with his feet. At least, it was reported that he recently had been treated by “Doc” Andrews for some such complaint. “Doc” had him hanging doors in his office to get his fee. Driver Caution Urged As Pupils Take Vacation Mayor C. LeMoyne Luthy today urged motorists to be especially alert while driving on Dover streets due to school children being on spring vacation. “Young children are out playing finally, after a long winter spent inside," Luthy said. “If you see a ball roll across the street, stop, because some little tot more than likely is chasing it. There are also small children on tricycles. Some have been seen behind parked cars.” Luthy also asked parents to supervise their children closely until the novelty of being able to play outside wears off, pte&m M 'A" iW ' t " * y, •*!

Police Details Answer Fire, Gun Incidents JACKSONVILLE. Fla. (API— Negro leaders called for “hit and run” picketing and sit-ins at segregated restaurants and hotels in this tense city today. But it was the unexpected-some spark that might detonate further violence—that had law enforcement agencies, city officials and residents on edge. At the state capital in Tallahassee, Gov. Farris Bryant met with Negro leaders but said the Jacksonville situation is a local affair and he won't intervene unless asked by local authorities. Darkness Tuesday continued to provide the cover for harrass-ment by unruly elements in the Negro sections. Flames and gunfire crackled for the second night, but there was no repetition of the fatal .shooting that Monday night claimed the life of a 36-year-old Negro mother of IO children. Fires broke out Tuesday night in several Negro areas. Shotgun charges splattered a school building and a police car. Rocks and bottles struck several autos, injuring at least one motorist.
