Dover Daily Reporter (Newspaper) - April 21, 1964, Dover, Ohio DHS Students Launch 'Surprise Attack' On Smoking After weeks of thorough preparation and “closed-door secrecy,” the Dover High Student Council launched a “surprise attack” on smoking this morning aimed primarily at non-smoking students and their parents.

John A. Larson of Stone Creek, chairman of the 15-member jury, reported to Common Pleas Judge J. H. Lamneck that a 5-day session had ended with the 8 indictments, including one secret bill, 8 no-bills and 2 continued cases. A total of 44 witnesses had been called. James Moses Crago, 29. of RD 2, Dover, will be arraigned on the second-degree murder charge in connection with the March 28 bludgeon slaying of Milton E. Swonger, 27. The indictment reads that Crago “unlawfully, purposely and maliciously” killed Swonger. Facing the manslaughter charge is John K. Reardon, 36, of RD I, Mineral City, for alleged responsibility for the traffic accident on Route 212, just off Route 8, in which his twin brother, James K., met his death April 13, 1963. A grand larceny charge has been lodged against John Mc-Nab, 36, of Jewett. The one-legged defendant was bound over to Grand Jury from Central County Court in early February after his arrest for allegedly stealing S146 in cash from the JNG Grill in New Philadelphia. Two of the indictments are for larceny by trick. Harry D. Hennis, 42, of 1920 N. Wooster Ave., Dover, is accused of taking $12,505 in checks from John F. Reicosky of RD 3, Dover, while acting as agent for the Franklin Insurance Co. Floyd G. Everhart. 20, of RD I, Hanoverton, will be arraigned for having passed a bogus check for $85 at Beaber’s IGA Food-liner in New Philadelphia on March ll. Robert D. Roberts of Uhrichsville will face 4 counts of writing checks totaling $200 from last Dec. 17 to Dec. 24 against The United Bank of Uhrichsville, without sufficient funds deposited there.

Phila Firemen Destroy Home Deliberate burning of a Southside house in New Philadelphia last night brought to light recent removal of a family from the property. The city, according to Service Director William Stevenson, holds a 99-year lease on the property, which is located on the old Ohio Canal, and needed it because of sanitary sewer system being installed. Occupants of the home, which was built approximately 40 years ago and apparently without permission being obtained, were found another residence several weeks ago by Mayor Joseph Pritz. Stevenson said the Board of Public Works in Columbus was contacted before the removal action was taken. Firemen last night set fire to the house, which was of little value.

Wooster Ave. Ext., Dover. The interview was published on Saturday, April 4. over Prosecutor Harlan Spies’ protest. The interview', in which Crago said he hit Swonger with a hammer after the latter swung at him during an argument. was obtained on the preceding Wednesday after Crago had been arraigned for the second time. Prosecutor Spies, after hearing reporter Pete Groh had talked with Crago, ordered The Daily Reporter not to print the interview and refused other news media permission to talk with the prisoner.

Spearheading the project is the Dollars for Industry Committee of the Twin City Community Projects and National Clay Week Council Inc. The committee, chaired by George Craiglow, met last night in Buckeye Hotel to discuss the 1 survey. “Our area is facing a serious situation,” Craiglowr said. “Nine weeks ago the Pennsylvania Railroad announced it is removing its local facilities and only a few maintenance workers will be retained here. That will mean an immediate loss of 250 jobs. “Uhrden Inc., which employs 40 persons, will be moving to its new plant at Sugarcreek and 4 stores, with a total of 20 employes, are closing. “In face of these economic blows the city and village governments should have acted.” Craiglow said that, according to Ohio Department of Development statistics, loss of 300 jobs means $1 million less in personal income for Twin City residents, 350 homes, 350 autos. $1,200,000 in retail sales and. most important, a reduction of 230 in other jobs. “I wonder if our people realize where we stand?” he asked. "The area has a bad name and we haven’t done anything to make people forget the 1920’s.” During last night’s meeting ii was pointed out that industry requires good city government, streets, hospital, munici- May Aid U.S., Soviet Moves By JOHN M.

Foreign Minister Haul Boa signed a threatening note to the U.S. government after Washing-: ton warned that its planes will continue to fly over Cuba and that use of Soviet missiles against them would create “a highly dangerous situation.” Iii his note, delivered to Swiss Ambassador Emil Stadelhofer for transmission to the United States, Roa replied: —“The U S. government would bear responsibility exclusively for creating this dangerous situation by violating national air space and ignoring international law.” —"The government of Cuba does not recognize any right claimed by the U.S. government for such violation and rejects entirely its note of March 27, 1964. in which it ratifies cynically its aim to maintain these spying flights over Cuban territory.” —‘‘These blackmailing and threatening statements will not frighten thc Cuban people or prevent them from defending with dignity and courage their sovereignty and their rights.” Roa said the Cuban government “has protested repeatedly against these flagrant violations of Cuba’s sovereignty and the most elementary principles, of international law which endanger international peace and se* curdy.” Prime Minister Fidel Castro had warned in a speech Sunday night that Cuba would no longer tolerate violations of its sovereignty by American planes and See Ct.AIMS, Page 7 Aiouitd The World ............ lo-- Dear Abby .................... 15 Dr. Alvarez ................. 17 Dr. Crane .............. 15    DAT Gorin On Bridge.............. 17    JZ f ^i ^ i iTrMFP -Ar /v Wtuarie? .......... 2    v    -V—*<v S ,rt*.      ll    *    12    .    .    .    .    , ... ,    ..    .lunes soul .lines fail lo cou- Te avision ...........
