Setterlin said that he and Herbert McClintock of RD 2, Do- Boy, 14, Is County s First Drowning Victim STRASBURG—Tragedy struck a closely-knit rural family yesterday as Tuscarawas County recorded its first drowning death of the year. Dead is 14-year-old Cletus Le-Glise, whose body was recovered from the bottom of Mal-cuit Lake, located 2 miles east of here off County Road 99 and just a mile from the boy’s home. The boy, a 7th Grader at St. Clement’s Catholic School at Navarre was out of school for the day because of a church observance of Ascension Day. Cletus and a brother took a walk shortly after noon and split up as Cletus headed up the lane to the lake, a favorite spot for play to many area youths. His brother, Glen, returned home and when asked where Cletus had gone, stated: “Up to the lake.” The boy’s mother, Marie, got in the family car and circled the area, finding no sign of the boy. She returned home and 2 of Cletus’ sisters were asked to look for him. As the girls were walking up the lane 2 fishermen, Edgar Keen of Navarre and William McCarthy of North Lawrence, stopped and gave them a lift. The boy’s clothes were found in the small shelter on the lake. Driven back to their home, the Ironworkers Stop Atwood, Midvale Jobs Members of the striking Ironworkers Union halted construction of 2 more area projects today and one general contractor this morning expressed the feeling that the situation will continue to worsen. According to Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District officials, work has stopped completely on the Atwood Inn project because of the dispute and Leo Gundy of Gundy Construction Co. reported pickets kept his workers off the job at the new Royal Crown Bottling plant near Midvale. Picketing continued today at the construction of the storage facilities at Reeves Steel Mfg. Co. The Ironworkers, only trade union which has not settled with local contractors, are headquartered in Canton with jurisdiction in Tuscarawas County. Of the 200 members, only a few are Tuscarawas County resi-1 dents.

Plan Youth Center TUSCARAWAS — An important meeting for all parents in the Tuscarawas area will be held tonight at 7:30 in the school for the purpose of forming a jouth center. girls informed their father who then called sheriff deputies. The time was 2:58 (slow time). Deputies Gene Lyons, Earl Doriche and Bob Mosley arrived at the lake a half hour later with their underwater diving gear. Meanwhile, 3 Strasburg youths, Bob Hensel, Dan Judy and Bill Malcuit, son of the owner, had arrived at the lake for a swim. When informed of the missing boy, they began diving into the 16 to 30-foot murky depths. They later were joined by Mike Hollingbaugh, and the foursome circled the chilly 3- acre lake for more than an hour. Lyons found the boy’s body at 4:55 in about 8 feet of water, just 15 feet from the landing in front of the bathhouse. Cletus was dressed only in his shorts and apparently had dived off the side of the landing. The boy’s shaken and distraught father kept repeating “It’s too late, it’s too late” as the swimmers searched the area. The area in which the body w'as found had been searched continuously by the 3 boys and the deputies, but the body had See DROWNING, Page 6 ver, employes of Corundite Refractories Inc. at Zoar, were prevented by flames from rescuing the pilot from the single-engine dusting plane after it struck either a utility pole or the attached wires and “cartwheeled” to the ground. State patrolmen did not establish the man’s identity until noon. Coroner Philip T. Dough-ten said the man’s wallet and identification had been burned along with the victim’s clothing. The pilot, according to available reports, was flying on a contract job for Status Development Co. of Zoarville and was to dust 2-foot high pine trees along Township Road 387, off of County Road 111. A secretary of that firm said that it had hired a Ballard Aviation Service Inc. of RD I, Linesville, Pa., for a dusting job. Setterlin, also a pilot, said the plane had made one dusting flight over trees and was on the return    pass when    the    left wing    struck    the wires    on    the pole. “I don’t think there was anything    wrong    with the    plane,” Setterlin said as he speculated the pilot had probably just “come in too low.” The left wing was ripped from the plane and thrown an estimated 150 feet from the electric lines    while    the bulk    of    the See ‘DUSTER*, Page 2 June 23 Trial Date Is Slated In Crago Case The jury trial of James M. Crago, 29, of RD 2, Dover, on a second-degree murder charge has been set for 9 a.m. June 23, W. R. Griffin, assignment commissioner of County Common Pleas Court, announced today. Crago, who was indicted by the April Grand Jury for the March 28 slaying of Milton E. Swonger, entered pleas of “not guilty” and “not guilty by reason of insanity” during his arraignment before Judge J. IL Lamneck last Monday. The court had appointed Attys. James Barnhouse and Clair P. Hoffman to defend Crago on his request for counsel the previous week. At Lamneck’s direction, Griffin had also set the date for the jury trial of 4 other persons who have pleaded not guilty following their Grand Jury indictment on criminal charges. The case of John McNab, 36, See CRAGO, Page 6 One explanation of the fatal crash is that the plane flew under the power line, the wing clipping the telephone pole (arrow) and sending it into a cart-wheel spin to earth. Loaded Gun Puts FBI In Plane Probe CONCORD, Calif. (AP) - A cocked and loaded pistol found in the trail of wreckage left by a Pacific Air Lines plane has brought the FBI into the investigation of Thursday’s crash. All 44 persons aboard the turbo-prop airliner were killed. A quarter-mile of metal fragments, a garbled tape recording, the gun and bits of the victims’ bodies were all the evidence that Civil Aeronautics Board investigators had to work with. The plane, a morning flight from Reno, Nev., went down after stopping in Stockton, Calif., just 40 miles east, San Francisco, its destination. Seconds before the airliner plunged nose first to earth, a garbled message came over its radio but was lost in a screech of static and electronic squeals. The Federal Aviation Agency had a tape recording of it that investigators hoped would provide some clue. The FBI took charge of a cocked and loaded 38-caliber revolver. At first it was believed to belong to a San Francisco police inspector, George Lacau, who with his wife, Betty, was a passenger on the plane. A check in police records, however, showed that none of the three revolvers registered by Lacau had the serial num- See FBI, Page 6 500,000 Atlantans Cheer LBJ ^rne On Poverty - Justice Junket YESTERDAY High 82    Low    66 Elsewhere In U.S. High Low Pr.

NEWCOMERSTOWN - Residents in the 300 block on Church St. participated in a 2-hour pony roundup yesterday, apparently following a script prepared by the “Keystone Cops.” Approximately 25 exuberant neighbors and passersby attempted to assist Mrs. James Hunt of 349 Church St. in recapturing the Shetland pony belonging to the Hunt children, which had slipped his harness about 9:30 a m. and bolted. Methods to lure the animal followed 3 approaches. The cowboys tried to lasso him, the psychologists tempted him with an ear of corn and the moderns sent a young man on a motorcycle in pursuit. The pony, was cornered a dozen times, but each time managed to elude his pursuers. Over front lawns and backyards, up a railroad bank and back again, over a retaining wall, across streets and up and down the sidewalks he ran. with the crowd surging ahead, behind and around him. Eventually the law was cabled in, but Patrolman Charles Stocker had no more luck than the amateurs, even though the en-j tire chase took place in only a 4-block area. After deciding he had had his fun. the pony ran into his own yard at 11:15 and calmly waited for Mrs. Hunt to tie him up and; the crowd to disperse. Midvale Clay Plant Strike Parley Fails MIDVALE — Ed Bower of Wellsville, international representative, today reported a stalemate in the 8-day-old strike at Evans Brick Co., here, following yesterday’s meeting between company officials, representatives of United Brick and Clay Workers Union and federal mediators. No further meetings have been scheduled and according to Bower, they are “not even close.” The next meeting will be set by the federal mediators. , &JMMB '    BBMIJ ON THE INSIDE Around The World ............ 6 Churches .................... 14 Dear Abby .................... 19 Dr. Alvarez .................. 17 Dr. Crane .................... 19 Goren On Bridge ............ 17 Hospital News ................ 6 Obituaries  ................. 2 Sports ................... ll    &    12 Television ...................... 7 Women’s Pages .......... 8    &    9 Your Horoscope .............. 17    • Strasburg Play Slated Tonight Curtain time is 8:15 tonight (fast time) in the school auditorium for the Strasburg Dramatic Club’s presentation of “The Silver Whistle.” The comedy, directed by Frances Kapitzky and featuring Paul Scherer of Dover in the lead role, will be repeated Saturday at the same time.

County Treasurer Victor Mar-tinelli has asked the prosecutor to commence these proceedings at his earliest convenience. In making his request, Marti-nelli submitted an itemized list of the properties involved, giving the owners a description of the real estate and amount of delinquent taxes due. Some of the delinquencies date back to 1947, the list shows. Amounts of taxes due range from $266 to $2,814, Of the 29 delinquent accounts, 21 are at least 8 years old. Both Spies and Martinelli emphasized that such proceedings will not be a .surprise action against the txpayers involved. The treasurer has already contacted the 29 owners, both DAY BRIGHTENER Anyone who thinks chemical warfare is something new doesn't know much about perfume. by letter and personal interview, in an effort to claim the money. Over the past several months, Martinelli revealed, some 130 delinquent accounts, many of them of long standing also, have been settled through the effort, time and expense of his own office force. In asking Spies to commence legal action against the remaining group, the treasurer stated it was his opinion that failure to prosecute could endanger the whole collection of real estate taxes, and probably result in county subdivisions losing a See 29 FACE* Page 6 to enlist in his war against poverty.

It was estimated at 25,000. Lynda Bird, who cut classes at George Washington University to swing through Maryland, West Virginia, Ohio, Tennessee, North Carolina and Georgia with her father, seemed to be having the time of her life. The president had a salute for youthful 41-year-old Dr. Vernon R. Alden, Ohio U n i v e r sity president, who just became chairman of his national Job Corps to aid youths who are in danger of becoming chronically unemployable. “Under Dr. Alden’s leadership,” the President said, “Ohio University is setting a national standard of leadership in attacking the problems of area I economic development.” ;
