The report Monday night caused a sensation around the world and sent stock prices tumbling on the U.S. Pacific Coast before the director-general of Tass, the Soviet news agency, termed it “rubbish.” Tass reported today that Khrushchev had begun talks this morning with Polish Communist Party Secretary Waldys-law Gomulka and Premier Josef Cyrankiewicz, who arrived in Moscow Monday from Warsaw. DPA—Deutsche Presse Agen tur—the West German news agency—announced it is making a full investigation to determine how the erroneous dispatch got oijJto its wires. Staff members connected with the affair have been suspended, a statement said.

Broadway ext. (Route 16) on the north edge of New Philadelphia have agreed to sell the property, it was learned today. Buyers are to be building contractor, Angelo Martinelli of 708 Hardesty Ave. NW, and Vie Ga-langa of 122 W. High Ave., both of New Philadelphia. The property will be developed into a housing allotment of homes in the $20,000 to $75,000 range, Martinelli said. The 122-acre tract runs from 3rd St. NE on the top and east side of the ridge to just south of the Limbach property, at the rear of the properties facing N. Broadway and Route 16. The 3 owners are Mrs. Deo Steffen, who lives at the farm now, Mrs. Charles Gilgen of Fair Board Accepting Bids For Judging Ring Bids for construction of a 60 x IOO steel building at the Fairgrounds will be received by the Fair Board until May 6, Secretary Walter Findley announced today. The structure, which will be used as a judging ring, will be 12 feet high. Two different bids are being asked, one including siding and the other excluding siding. The bids may be mailed to Findley at the Fair Board office at 259 S. Tuscarawas Ave., Dover. 456 N. Broadway and Mrs. Walter Knecht of 125 Front St. SW, both of New Philadelphia. The agreed-upon price was not disclosed. The history of the property, which is adjacent to property formerly owned by former Gov. Vie Donehey, goes back 3 generations in the Gilgen family, according to Mrs. Steffen. Her great-grandfather, Frederick Gilgen, owned the farm at the time her father was born.

The inquiry was said to have originated in the Bonn office of a Japanese newspaper. DPA moved a flash saying “Khrushchev dead” at 9:49 p.m. —3:48 p.m. EST. This was followed five minutes later by a one-paragraph story under a Moscow dateline which said: “Soviet Premier Khrushchev died suddenly Monday at 2019 CET—2:19 p.m. EST—four days before his 70th birthday as a result of an acute hephocapalyti-rosis. (according to Tass).” A number of European news agencies that have an exchange agreement with DPA picked up the dispatch. All quoted the German agency as the source.

The 37-year-old son of a tomato farmer in Nassau, the Bahamas, was named best actor of 1963 at Academy Awards ceremonies Monday night for his ingratiating portrayal of an itinerant Baptist construction worker who helped nuns build a church in “Lilies of the Field.” Patricia Neah 38, whose career has included downs as well as ups, made it a comeback story by taking best actress honors. Her winning role was as the slovenly housekeeper in “Hud.” “Tom Jones,” a racy, rollicking tale of 18th century England, was selected best picture at the 36th anual festivities at Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. Melvyn Douglas, once Greta Garbo’s favorite leading man, pulled an upset by winning as jest supporting actor for his performance as the patriarchal rancher of “Hud.” John Huston of “The Cardinal” and Hugh Griffith of "Tom Jones” had been cofavorites. Margaret Rutherford, dowdy duchess of “The V.I.P.S” and a heavy favorite, was named best supporting actress. New Philadelphia city fathers crowded at least 20 items of business into a 70-minute session last night. Highlights of the Council meeting were a surprise approval of an amended ordinance on Dawson Lane, a proposal for an expansion of swimming pool facilities and selection of a Columbus engineering firm for a city storm sewer survey. By a 4-2 vote, Council approved and amended an ordinance making Dawson Lane NW a one-way street from 3rd to 4th St. Councilman Paul Young had entered the amendment to have the traffic flow changed from 4th to 3rd St. at the previous meeting after 2 readings of the ordinance. But his motion was tabled because 3 members were absent. Last, night, however, despite Safety Director Joseph Frenz-el’s strong objections, the change was approved and the ordinance passed in its third reading, with Comer Watkins and William Hicks voting “Nay.” from Mayor Joe Pritz, who pre- !

The proposal on the Tuscora Park swimming pool came from John Stratton, who said he already had received Jaycee backing on it. Stratton said he thought the pool could be made a source of more financial profit by making it more appealing to the public. confines of the swimming area, and an enlargening of the deep end of the pool.
