Dover Daily Reporter (Newspaper) - June 9, 1964, Dover, Ohio Humphrey's Influence Killed IStop Coldwater'Move By Governors By Richard Zimmerman Daily Reporter Staff Writer CLEVELAND — A lone citizen of an uncommitted state is responsible for the abortive death of the “Stop Coldwater” movement at the National Governors’ Conference. The state is Ohio. The citizen Is Mentor industrialist George M. Humphrey, former Secretary of the Treasury under Dwight Eisenhower. At least this is the story being purposely leaked by aides to Pennsylvania Gov. William Scranton even while some are publicly denying the report. The story is widely accepted among Ohio political forces since it not only explains the rather foolish - appearing backdown by Scranton but also why Ohio COP Chairman Ray C. Bliss apparently gave not even behind - the - scenes encouragement to the move towards at least an open convention. The story from the Pennsylvania delegation is that after Eisenhower’s conference writh Scranton the former president received a call from Humphrey. The Ohio millionaire reportedly expressed shock at reports that Eisenhower had just pushed Scranton into the breech as the rallying point for the move to stop Coldwater. Not only did Humphrey have a great deal of personal influence with Eisenhower but he also is even now' a key figure in Republican party finances both on a state and a national level. There are few things that impress Bliss more than the possibility of losing a huge chunk from his state campaign funds. Humphrey not only personally contributes a great deal but he is a power within that exclusive group which runs GOP finances in Ohio. With this power behind him Humphrey got Eisenhower to call Scranton back and call him off, Scranton’s aides claim. Eisenhower reportedly has ac- The Daily Reporter VOL. 60. NO. 281.    40    PAGES.

Scranton then went through 2 agonizing press conferences at which he again and again declined to meet head-on with Coldwater, instead said only that he would accept a “sincere” draft — only a slight variation of his stand before the meeting with Eisenhower. The fact that Curtis Lee Smith, president of the Cleveland Chamber of Commerce and host to the conference, invited Coldwater to the convene Lion without clearing it with the full membership of the COP governors also indicates a move by the financial but non-professional interests within the Ohio GOP to boost the Arizona senator at this crucial moment. While Bliss has never publicly spoken against Coldwater ha was still pushing for an open Ohio delegation and convention when the invitation was made by Smith. On June 22 the Ohio delegation will meet in Columbus in caucus and the same forces are likely to be at work then to junk Ohio’s favorite son pledge and endorse Coldwater on the first ballot. Such a move by one of the last large uncommitted states would lock up the nomination for Coldwater so tightly that the COP convention will be as PHONE 4-2167 7 CENTS See HUMPHREY, Page 6 ★Governors Seek COP 'Alternate / Rebecca Hertzicj gives her salutatorian address to an estimated 1,600 parents and friends of Dover High's 164 graduating seniors Phila Councilmen Have Fast Session New Philadelphia councilmen with nary a “nay,” zipped through the business of 6 ordinances, 3 of them emergency, 4 department reports and sandwiched in a 5-minute public hearing — all within an hour’s time Monday night.

Va. (AP)—A four-story brick building in downtown Parkersburg collapsed shortly before noon today, trapping an undetermined number of shoppers and clerks. There was no immediate report of fatalities. “It’s a catastrophe,” said a Parkersburg policewoman handling emergency calls. The outside of the building was being renovated when the collapse occurred. Workmen were on scaffolding in front of the structure. “Should be ain’t is! You will have to make it is!” Dr. Har-] old L. Yochum, president of Capital University in Columbus, told the 164 graduating seniors of Dover High School last night at the 85th commencement exercises, the first to take place in the new gymnasium. Dr. Yochum, who has taught English, explained that he borrowed the phrase, “Should be ain’t is,” from a Negro minister who used it in a sermon to point out that what a thing or situation should be is not always ‘the way it actually is. Applying the phrase to the fields of education, citizenship and religion, Dr. Yochum explained to the graduates that many situations exist today that; should not be and that they will have to make the situations) what they should. “You would think that young people who go to school should want to pass,” he said, but went on to describe 3 kinds of students who, because of their natures, find passing to be a problem. The first kind is the one that offers passive resistance. He shows no signs of life in class until the bell rings ending class. Then he is the first one out the door. The second gives active resistance. “Teacher, you can’t learn me nothin’,” he says, and then does his best to see that he does not learn anything. “Then there are so many students who like to be just average. You had better set yourself a pretty high average when you go to college because the average student won’t pass. “Somewhere along the way we just are not doing what we See GRADUATION, Page 9 Nixon Claims Coldwater Not 'Assured' Nod By JACK BELL CLEVELAND, Ohio (API-Former Vice President Richard M. Nixon said today the search for an alternative candidate to Sen. Barry Coldwater for the Republican presidential nomination still is being continued by COP governors. Coldwater breezed through the 56th annual Governors Conference Monday night and flew back to Washington with confidence that former President Dwight D. Eisenhower will not upset his bid for the nomination. The Arizona Republican said in an interview he thinks the former president is about the only man who could keep him from getting the nomination. He said he is convinced that Eisenhower will remain neutral. Nixon, the 1960 presidential nominee, said after a breakfast meeting with GOP governors today that several of them who are not satisfied with Goldwa ter’s conservative views are still trying to get together on a candidate they can back. He said this candidate should be a governor and not himself. He indicated he thinks the most likely possibilities are Govs. William W Scranton of Pennsylvania and George Romney of Michigan. WORST IN HISTORY Floods Sweep Montana Dams, 8 Listed Dead GREAT FALLS, Mont, (AP)—Floods described as the worst in memory swept out of Montana’s northwestern mountains Monday, killing at least eight persons, sweeping away dams and bridges and leaving hundreds of residents isolated. Rain pelted the area for the fifth straight day. Boat Overturns In River, 3 Boys Escape To Safety Three 15-year-old New Philadelphia boys scrambled ashore last night after their boat overturned in the Tuscarawas River near 4th St. Ext SE in New Philadelphia. Firemen, summoned at 6:44 p.m. by Mrs. John Stropky, identified the youths as Tom S La son, Tom Massarelli and Floyd Edie. The trio was ashore when firemen arrived. No injuries were reported. It was Nixon’s opinion that the chances for an agreement on a candidate the party moderates could back against Coldwater were not very great. Nixon contended that the party must work hard to have Coldwater change some of his views on national issues. “It would be a tragedy for the Republican party if the Coldwater views previously stated were not repudiated,” Nixon told the news conference. Nixon termed Coldwater “as odds-on favorite,” but said he does not have the nomination “wrapped up.” He said that a number of the governors expressed concern because there might not be a See GOVERNORS, Page 2 ON THE INSIDE wmmm* n mmmrnm Around The World ............ 6 Dear Abby ................... 19 Dr. Alvarez ................. 19 Dr. Crane .................... 21 Goren On Bridge ........... 21 Hospital News ............... 6 Obituaries ..................... 2 Sports .................. ll    &    12 Television .................... 14 Women’s Pages ........... 8    &    9 Your Horoscope ............. 19 Authorities said the death tol Blackfeet Indian family.

In Glacier National Park, more than 200 persons were reported cut off by flooded roads or washed-out bridges. Many were park employes preparing for the summer tourist season. Col. Howard McKinney of the Montana National Guard said the floods were the greatest natural disaster the state has ever suffered. Damage estimates ranged into the millions of dollars. Rescue workers were blocked in many places by washed-out bridges and long stretches of inundated highway. At least 20 bridges and four earthen dams were carried away by the pounding water.

Danny D. Johnson of New Philadelphia was chosen last night by Democratic leaders of Tuscarawas, Coshocton, Guernsey, Holmes, Knox, Monroe, Morrow, Noble and Wayne counties, as the party’s state senator nominee for the 17th, 18th, 19th and 28th Districts. Johnson’s appointment was necessitated by the recent death of Rep. Jess Dempster of Uhrichsville who had won the senatorial nomination in the May primary. Johnson today expressed his appreciation for the confidence reposed in him by the Democratic leaders, who met at Coshocton last night. “The death of Jess Dempster was a great loss and it would be difficult to try and fill his shoes,” Johnson stated. As a result of his selection, the attorney will be vying for the post he held in 1958 to 1960, See JOHNSON, Page 2 mmmwmtmm rn. I News I Briefs TUSCALOOSA, Ala.

What effect will the defeat of the Dennison - Uhrichsville annexation plan have on the upcoming November vote for consolidating the Dennison, Uhrichsville and Union Local School Districts? An attitude that “if the towns don’t want to merge, why should the schools? is expected to gain momentum between now and Nov. 4. And, it is expected, that at least one elected Uhrichsville official will oppose the proposal publicly. A November vote on the issue was assured yesterday in Columbus when the State Board of Education gave quick approval Several members of tile 3 involved hoards were present in the state capital hut were not asked to comment on the planned consolidation — the state board apparently being in full agreement. The only block could come from the Tuscarawas County Board of Education which could attempt to snag Union Local’s bid for consolidation. It is expected, though, that Supt W. E. Laws will not press the issue because of retirement plans in the near future.
