Dover Daily Reporter (Newspaper) - April 25, 1964, Dover, Ohio Dem Letter To Pastors Causes Resentment A mimeographed letter mailed by the City Democratic Committee of New Philadelphia to Protestant clergymen in the county regarding the sheriff nomination race on May 5 has added another sour note to that contest. The letter, signed by Al Bricker, committee chairman, and received yesterday by ministers, asked them to urge members of their respective congregations to support the candidacy of Joe Frenzel because “with 4 men seeking the Democratic nomination .... only Joseph W. Frenzel is a Protestant.” The letter went on to state: “The other 3 candidates are members of the Catholic religion and none can come near ‘our man’ in qualifications for the office of sheriff.” Several ministers contacted The Daily Reporter and expressed their resentment. One of them said: “This is going way out of line. Injecting re ligion into a political campaign is in very bad taste and I shall protest such tactics to the Democratic organization of the county.” Atty. Kenneth Ferrell of New Philadelphia, chairman of the County Democratic Executive Committee, stated: “The Demo cratic party, and especially myself as chairman, does not support, or refuse to support, or castigate, or promote any candidate or individual because of ’ his religious belief, color, creed or lack of religious belief. This is totally in opposition to all the See DEM LETTER. Page 14The Daily Reporter VOL. 60.

Kentucky and West Virginia. And he said he was looking ahead to a “bright highway of hope” for the impoverished and unemployed of the nation. impromptu street rallies and given his Secret Service bodyguards a scare by riding through crowds in an open convertible — something that had not been done since the assassination of President John F. Kennedy last Nov. 22. Perhaps the most unusual episode of a day crowded with surprises was a presidential visit to the cabin-dwelling Tom Fletchers and their eight children at Inez. Mounting the rude front porch of the Fletcher home in Hat-field-and-McCoy country, Johnson squatted on his haunches— hunkered down, in local parlance—to discuss with the man of the house the problems of poverty. Fletcher, jobless for much of the past two years, reported he earned $400 last year—largely by scratching for coal on the surface of the neighboring hills. Fletcher, who quit school in the fourth grade, got a lecture from the President on the wisdom of educating his jean-clad boys. “Take care of yourself,” said Johnson as he left the hillside cabin. “And don’t you forget See SPIRIT’ Page 14Election Board Courses Unsure On Vote Action Vie Turner, clerk of Board of Elections, said this morning —that to the best of his knowledge — neither the board members or the chairman have been served with papers in connection with a mandamus action filed Thursday by Mayor Donald Huston of Dennison to stop a vote on the Dennison - Uhrichsville annextion in the May 5 election. A hearing on the action has been set for 9 a m. Monday before Common Pleas Judge J. If. Lamneek. At that time, the Board supposedly is to show cause why the annexation ballot should not be removed from the May 5 primary election. Turner said he learned of the action through the newspapers. It is expected, however, that board members, including Kenneth Ferrell, chairman, will meet over the weekend with Prosecutor Harlan Spies to discuss the action. Spies is legal advisor for the group.DAY -r<-BRIGHTENER Folks used to deny thorns! luxuries to have money in bank—now they go without I ey to have the luxuries. The President came home delighted with the reception given him by big-city steelworkers and hill-country sawmill workers—even though his right hand was puffed and daubed with red antiseptic. Without question, Johnson had shaken more hands than on any other day as President. He had been mobbed and buffeted by over eager admirers, conducted BRENDA FESTI TOPS LOCAL ENTRANTSN.
