The first leg of the New Philadelphia Route 250-8 bypass is expected to be sold at the June 23 contract bid opening at Co lumbus, according to the sale schedule announced last November. This section would run from the Green Gables interchange of 77, west of the city, to Wills Dip, east of New Phil adelphia. On June 9, area projects slated for sale are the 1.6-mile relocation of Route 39, west of Millersburg, and guard rail painting in Division ll’s 7 coun ties, including along Routes 21 and 39 in Tuscarawas County and Route 3 in Holmes. The “all-important session,” however, is tentatively set for June 24 at which time the entire highway construction program for the county as well as the state will be reviewed in light of the recently - approved $500 million bond issue. According to Gov. James Rhodes, who touched on the issue last Thursday in his Chamber of Commerce talk at New Philadelphia, several of the scheduled projects will be ad vanced, particularly IS 77 south from the Green Gables Interchange and north from Strasburg.

Deaths Are 328 In Riot Largest Circulation In Toscarawas County Dover-New Philadelphia, Ohio, Tuesday, May 26, 1964 Serving Over 11,000 Families PHONE 4-2167 7 CENTS By THOMAS J. STONE LIMA, Peru (AP)— Feelings ran high in the Peruvian capital today and police were on the alert for more disorders in the wake of Sunday’s bloody finale to a soccer game. Police announced an official toll of 328 dead in the panic after police fired tear gas to check a riot in Lima’s National Stadium. The police said 122 of the victims had not been identified. It was the sports world’s worst disaster, and the International Soccer Federation, with headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland, asked the Peruvian association for detailed information. The rioters were protesting a referee’s decision against the Peruvian team in a Peru-Argen-tina pre-Olympic match. The police used tear gas again Monday to break up a small demonstration by students in front of San Marcos University. The police said inflammatory speeches were being made. Police reinforcements repelled a Lima mob headed toward the home of Commander Jorge de Asumbuja, whom they accused of ordering tear gas shells fired into the crowd pouring onto the soccer playing The Dover Downtown Retail field.    Merchants Council has set store Asumbuja said none of the hours for the remainder of the gas grenades was fired into the stands.

Gen. Amkha Soukhavong, neutralist military adviser to Premier Souvanna Phouma, said the Communists had been Alexander Given Fine, Jail Term UHRICHSVILLE - Sandy T.

Amkha said a battalion of neutralist infantry, 19 tanks and 8 armored cars, which had been routed from their headquarters at Muong Kheung, on the northwest fringe of the strategic plain recaptured two-thirds of the sector. Prince Souvanna warned the National Assembly that if Muong Suoi fell, the Communists would threaten the royal capital of Luang Prabang and Vang Vieng on the main road south to Vientiane. Some 2,500 right-wing troops were spread out in a defense Among the more important items brought up during the hour-and-half meeting were: (1)—The resignation of Republican Councilman - at - large Frank McIntosh. (2)—Approval of paying $4,-000 out of city funds to get the storm-sewer project study underway. (3)--Approval of paying $4,601 still due the Public Employes Retirement System from the last quarter of 1963. Prior to the third and final reading on the Schneiter property the regular Council meeting was temporarily adjourned for the public hearing on the matter. The City Planning Commission and the Board of Zoning Appeals had already voted against rezoning for commercial use the Schneiter properties on the east side of 4th St. NW, between Carrie and Grandview Aves.

His client’s request was simply for an extension of that section. The lawyer, as previously, said Schneiter would sign an agreement that the property would never be used for a beer joint, as some rumors had suggested. Residents Walter Mote of 1230 3rd St. and Alan A. Mandel of 314 Grandview Ave. protested that since 12 years ago, the area had been a restricted residential area, and to make it something different was improper and unjust. Two petitions, pro and con, had been filed in respect lo the matter, City Solicitor Donald Zimmerman and Mayor Joe Pritz pointed out. A majority of residents within the block immediately concerned had voted for the rezoning. Councilman John Stratton said he was opposed to any and all “spot rezoning” until the city put up new zoning plans. Councilman Ted Ricker sided with Johnson in suggesting that the immediate request involved only an extension of a “spot” already rezoned. Ricker and Comer Watkins, however, were the only council members to vote in favor of the ordinance, when Pro-Tem President Lloyd Dinger, called them See PHILA ZONING, Page 7 Attempt Set Thursday For Unmanned Ship CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) —The first attempt to orbit an unmanned model of the Apollo moonship was postponed today to Thursday because of a frozen nitrogen valve in the ground support equipment. The trouble occurred after the countdown on the giant Saturn I booster rocket had advanced to within an hour and 55 minutes of the scheduled launchimg time. After wrestling unsuccessfully with the problem for nearly three hours, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration called off the shot for two days. The time is required to replace the faulty valve and check out the new system. The valve is part of a system which pumps liquid nitrogen to cool an instrument package between the top of the rocket and the Apollo space craft. The spacecraft is the same shape as the vehicle which as tronauts one day will ride, but it carries none of the equipment which will be aboard the real thing. Major purpose of the launching is to further qualify the Saturn I rocket, which has registered five straight test-flight successes. On its most-recent flight, the Saturn orbited the heaviest satellite ever sent aloft, a 37,700-pounder.

MARY TYLER MOORE Best Actress By JAMES BACON AP Movie-Television Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) - CBS-TV, with 13 awards — five of them via the “Dick Van Dyke Show,”—is big winner today of the 16th annual television Emmy Awards. “It sure pays to boycott,” said the handsome Van Dyke, clutching his first Emmy for best actor. “I bet CBS is sorry now they started this whole thing—or maybe they’re glad.” Van Dyke was referring to the CBS and ABC boycott of the Emmy show Monday night. Both networks had charged NBC-TV with bloc voting in previous awards. NBC, the only non-boycotter, took second with nine Emmies and ABC took third with five, four of them won by the John F. Kennedy documentary “The Making of the President, 1960.” Master of ceremonies Joey Bishop commented on the NBC-TV telecast: “If NBO drops out of this thing, there will be im mediate dancing.” Bishop had opened the show with, “Welcome to ‘greatest fights of the century.’ ” The Van Dyke show also won Emmies for best writing, best directing, best comedy and best actress—Mary Tyler Moore. See EMMY, Page 7 4 Witnesses Heard During Larceny Trial of The grand larceny trial John McNab, 36, of Jewett, continued in Tuscarawas County Common Pleas Court today with prosecution witnesses being called. Prosecutor Harlan Spies put on the stand the co-owners of the JNG Grill in New Philadelphia, John and George Comani-ta, from which McNab allegedly stole $146 in cash last Jan. 30. Neither Comanita brother had been in the grill at the time McNab, a coal salesman, allegedly took the money from a cigar box set on a table below the bar where he was seated. McNab’s attorney, Joseph Streb, entered a general objection against George Comanita’s testimony, describing the search that Chief Deputy Sheriff John Barlock had conducted of the one-legged defendant after he had been accused of the theft. Streb informed Judge J. II. Lamneck that Comanita’s testimony was connected with an illegal search conducted against his client and argued, therefore, that the testimony could not be allowed. Comanita described how the deputy ordered McNab to lower his trousers and then took a number of bills from the plastic cup connecting the man’s artificial leg with the remaining stump.

(AP)-One National Guardsman was shot and three others were injured Monday night in a new flareup between integrationist demonstrators and troops using bayonets and tear gas to disperse them. State police said several demonstrators also were injured in the clash as bullets, bricks and bottles whizzed through the air in the city’s Negro district. Hundreds of whites milled along the edge of the district, heckling guardsmen and shouting taunts at integrationists across the street. Further disorder was averted when Brig. Gen. George M. Gel-ston clamped a curfew on the town and guardsmen moved shoulder to shoulder down the main street to clear it of spectators. Ironically named Race Street, it divides the Negro section of about 4,000 from the 8,000 white population. None of Monday night’s injur-was described as serious, les but th© clash was the third outbreak in two weeks and the most serious in nearly a year. The guard was ordered into Cambridge by Gov. J. Millard Tawes last summer after a series of shootings and arsons. It has been there since. In the latest eruption, a Negro guardsman was wounded in the left shoulder by a small-cal-iber bullet. Another, also Negro, suffered a burned hand when a grenade he was holding exploded. A plastic fragment from the grenade hit the gas mask of an officer, cutting his face. A rock hit a fourth serviceman, possibly fracturing an arm. Gelston said about 150 demonstrators, all but about four or five of them Negro, had begun marching and singing some two hours before the violence. Guard details were assigned to key intersections to prevent Negroes from leaving the district and whites from entering it. Several times groups of Negroes tried to march out, were confronted by guardsmen and turned back, As the number of whites along Race Street built up, so did the tension. Roger L.
