The judge said that the official record of the proceedings of ★ Decision Seen After Election On Water Board The problem concerning management, operation and control of the Twin City Water Board may not be settled until after Tuesday’s election. Common Pleas Court Assignment Officer W. R. Griffin said today that no docket date had been assigned for hearing on the declaratory judgment suit. The petition was filed March 4 by Dennison Solicitor Danny Johnson asking the court for a judgment on who should be seated on the Board, members of which were named as defendants. In turn, trustees of the Dennison Board of Public Affairs filed an answer to the petition in which they also asked the court for a determination as to rights and duties of the Twin City Water Board. Their answer was prepared by Syler and Redinger, law firm of Dover. Residents in Uhrichsville and Dennison have voiced their desire to have the matter settled going to be welcome in this prior to the vote on Dennison’s the Dennison Council at the meetings in which the ordinance was passed had been studied as evidence. ‘‘The court further finds,” Lamneck’s ruling states, ‘‘that said ordinance was passed by a majority vote on its first reading by said Council on March 3, 1964; was passed by a majority vote on its second reading on March 22, 1964, and passed on its third reading under suspension of rules on March 22, 1964.” In making his decision. Lamneck further ordered that the alternative writ of mandamus against the County Board of Elections be vacated. Dennison Mayor Donald G. Huston, acting as a private citizen had asked, through his attorney, Arthur Limbach, for the court to issue the writ requiring the Board of Election members and clerks to show cause why the annexation ballots should not be impounded and Scranton Sets Pennsylvania Write-in Mark withheld from the May 5 vote. Board members, along with Clerk Victor Turner, appeared with their counsel, Prosecutor Harlan Spies, on Monday. In his entry, Judge Lamneck noted that the Board had offered Ordinance 1454 as their reason for placing the annex issue on the Dennison ballot. The entry continues:    ‘‘The court finds that if said ordinance was legally passes as provided by law, the same consti- Attorneys Set Activities For 'Law Day USA' tutes ample authority for the action of the Board of Elections ordering a vote on said question of annexation.” Huston, as mayor, already had filed a protest against the annexation ballot with Secretary of State Ted W.

Hoffa, beset from within and without his huge Teamsters Union empire, faced another worry today—a court precedent indicating he might have to pay federal income taxes on his huge union-paid legal fees. The precedent, a 1963 U.S. Tax Court decision, appeared to lend weight to a major point in a high-level Teamsters’ ruckus that cut off Hoffa’s legal expense money as he entered his second major federal criminal velopment of its Appalachia region will be $90 million, according to Gov. James A. Rhodes. Rhodes said President Johnson mentioned the $90 million iii a telephone conversation Tuesday to welcome Ohio’s 18 southeastern counties into the federal Appalachian development program. John McElroy, assistant to the governor, said he is sure the figure represents Ohio’s initial chunk out of the entire multi-billion dollar project. The president asked Congress Tuesday for $228 million for development of the 10-state Appalachian region for the fiscal year. However, no state-by-stat* trial in less than 60 days.
