Hennis, 42, a former Dover insurance agent, was found guilty at noon today by a Common Pleas Court jury on a charge of larceny by trick. He sat quietly, displaying no emotion, as Clerk of Courts George LaPorte read the verdict, returned after 80 minutes of deliberation. Judge J. H. Lamneck deferred sentencing pending probation report and Hennis’ $2,000 bond was continued. The jury got the case shortly after 10:30 this morning following closing arguments by Prosecutor Harlan Spies and Hennis’ 2 defense attorneys. This trial was in its third day. Spies told the jury:    “This case simply boils down to this. It is to be your job to decide whether this defendant, through false representation and pretense took money from Mr. Reicosky. If he took money, was it more than $60? And how much was it?” The prosecutor, in a rousing closing argument, contended that evidence clearly showed Hennis to be guilty of tricking the Bolivar bricksetter, John F Reicosky, into paying him $12,-505 in checks on what Hennis intended to be a loan, but Rei cosky understood to be full payment for a life insurance policy with the Franklin Life Insur an ce Co. “This was a slippery, slick deal,” Spies told the jury. Hennis* lawyers, Attys. Daniel Belden of Canton and Willard Miller, split the time for argument for the defense. Belden emphasized to the jury: “There is one issue for you folks to decide — whether Harry Hennis induced John Reicosky by false representation or pretense to give him the money.” Belden admitted that Hennis had obtained the money on Jan. 7, 1963, but argued that Reicosky had to know what the money was for rn view of the cognovit note which he had signed on Jan. 14. “How can there be any false pretenses in a cognovit note?” asked Belden. Reicosky had testified that he did not understand what a note See JLMY, Page 2 BEAT THE HEAT. Pools, such os this one at Tuscora Park, lakes and the small plastic backyard variety got a workout yesterday as countians cooled off in 91-degree heat. With school out in most of the county and Dover and St. Joesph's students ending up their school year today the summer splash is about to begin in a big way. Yesterday's reading was the hottest since last July 27 when the thermometer bubbled to 92. Heavy humidity added to the discomfort. The weatherman, however, predicted more comfortable climes for today and Thursday. 4 Graduates To Get One More Lesson An anonymous “tip” and a Dover police “stakeout” led to the arrest of 4 Dover High graduates early Tuesday morning. Police received a tip that a group of seniors might cause damage to the homes of high school teachers, with Clifford Blair of 1912 Dover Ave. being named as a possible victim. A policeman was stationed at Blair’s home. At approximately 3 a.m., 2 cars pulled up to the driveway and a beer bottle was thrown from one through Blair’s garage window. Police later apprehended William M. Rabes, 18, of RD 2, Rodney E. Bird. 18, of 708 E. 4th St., Joseph Orlowski, 18, of 700 E. 4th St. and Richard L. Bryan, 17, of 1215 Oak St. Rabes, Bird and Orlowski were all cited for aiding and abetting destruction of property and are to appear before Mayor C. LeMoyne Luthy on Friday. Charges against Bryan were to be filed with juvenile authorities. The 4 received their diplomas Monday night.

GREAT FALLS. Mont. (AP) —Flood waters chased at least 2,000 persons from their homes here Tuesday night after leaving 30 or more dead and hundreds homeless upstream. Gov. Tim Babcock estimated damage from the flood, Montana’s worst, at $10 million. President Johnson declared seven northwestern counties a disaster area. In the northwest, hit first by the three-day flood, waters receded and rescue teams started mopping up. The Sun River crested ll feet over its flood stage of 12 feet at midnight in this city of 70,000. A spokesman for the Air Force and National Guard’s rescue operations estimated 2,000 to 3,000 persons were evacuated from homes here and in the flooded areas to the west and north.

The request was approved sons evacuated from homes west of Great Falls and from an exclusive residential area surrounding a country club and golf course. The shelter is in West Side Junior High School, where more than 200 residents slept Tuesday night. The 14th Street bridge in Great Falls held fast despite a heavy pounding by water, trees, parts of farm buildings and other debris. A natural gas pipeline under the Sixth Street bridge burst with a shudder that was felt by onlookers. Air Force teams said they res-See FLOODS, Page 16 3 top cooks draw $2,380, $2,181 and $2,073.

Barry Coldwater—standing on the threshold of the Republican presidential nomination — is eying four Eastern GOP leaders as he thinks about a running mate. To his closest associates, Coldwater has mentioned these names as possible vice-presidential choices: —Pennsylvania Gov. William W. Scranton. —Sen. Thruston B. Morton of Kentucky. —Rep. William E. Miller of New York. —Gov. James A. Rhodes of Ohio. Coldwater hasn’t ruled anybody in or out of the running, a source close to the Arizona senator said today. But Coldwater has said he thinks the Republican National Convention will want to balance the ticket—if he heads it—with a moderate Republican from the East. The four men associates say Coldwater has mentioned all fit that pattern. Publicly, Coldwater usually bypasses, questions about a vice-presidential choice. “I’m looking for delegates, not vice presidents,” is his stock reply. He has talked about Scranton, suggesting the Pennsylvania governor would be well advised to consider the vice-presidential nomination. That way, Coldwater said Sunday, if the ticket lost, the governor would be in a position See RHODES, Page 16 Weathervane YESTERDAY High 91    Low    75 Elsewhere In U.S. High Low Pr.

Senate Chokes CR Filibuster WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate voted today, in a history-shattering move, to choke off the 75-day old Southern filibuster against the civil rights bill. Each senator s time to debate the bill and all amendments will now be limited to one hour. This appears to assure Senate passage of the far-reaching bill possibly before the end of next week. The Housfe passed the bill on J Feb. IO by a vote of 290-130. Barry Coldwater of Arizona, the Romney Nixes Nixon Urging To Enter Race Bv JACK BELL CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) — The annual Governors Conference, which has had all the aspects of a miniature Republican convention, ends today with Sen. Barry Goldwater galloping almost unchallenged toward the COP presidential nomination. The 56th annual convention hasn’t produced a moderate Republican opponent for the conservative senator from Arizona. Former Vice President Richard M. Nixon tried hard to stir up a nomination fight that some of his critics thought was aimed at opening the way for Nixon himself to run against President Johnson as a compromise choice. But none of the GOF governors who had claimed that Goldwater’s views are not in the mainstream of Republican thinking wanted to take on the senator. Latest to bow out was Gov. George Romney of Michigan. He announced through his press secretary Tuesday that he would not become an active candidate. Romney said he would accept a draft, but wouldn’t go back on a 1962 commitment to Michigan voters not to seek national office this year. This announcement came after Nixon said he had urged Romney to run, and Romney said he had been urged by some fellow governors to make the race and would consider it. Earlier, Gov. William W. Scranton of Pennsylvania retired See ROMNEY, Page 16 The Senate has been battling over it since March 9. with Southern opponents mounting a record - breaking filibuster against it. The Senate’s public galleries were packed as the crucial vote on cloture was taken. Tight security was maintained around the Capitol as additional persons pressed for a chance to get in. The vote followed an all-night session of the Senate at which Sen. Robert C. Byrd, D-W.Va., made a marathon speech attacking the civil rights bill and urging his colleagues not to shut off the debate. The vote to apply the Senate’s debate - limiting cloture rule was 71 to 29. This was four more votes than the required two-thirds majority leading contender for his party’s presidential nomination. Byrd began his speech at 7:38 p.m. and continued until 9:52 a m. When he finally quit, the Senate took an eight-minute recess, then went back into session. It had agreed Tuesday to meet at IO a.m. today. Since the adoption of the cloture rule in 1917, all previous attempts to use it to cut off a filibuster against a civil rights bill had failed. Leaders of both parties became convinced in the face of the all-out opposition of the Dixie forces to the present bill that debate-limitation had to be obtained if the bill was to pass. Just before the vote. Republican Leader Everett M. Dirk-sen of Illinois introduced the leaders’ substitute bill worked out with Atty. Gen. Robert F. Voting for cloture were 44 Kennedy Democrats and 27 Republicans. Opposed were 23 Democrats and 6 Republicans. One of the Republicans voting no was Send Overnight, the substitute had been revised further to include the jury trial amendment adoptive FILIBUSTER, Page 13 Johnson Tells Graduates Of Urgent World Problems WORCESTER, Mass.

It had been reported to patrolmen at the scene that Thelma Harrington, 16, of 1529 Chestnut St., Dover, was the driver. A charge against her has been dismissed, Cpl. G. E. Ferguson said this morning. Ferguson indicated that he would discuss with Juvenile Judge Ralph Finley the possibility of filing additional charges against the pair since they apparently had given false information at the time of investigation. The 2-car accident occurred on Township Road 368, northeast of Dover and involved a car driven by another 16-year-old, Edward Gibbs, also of Dover, who was cited for driving left of center. Ferguson said he had learned that the youths made up the tory since Marsh had been told by his parents not to drive someone else’s car. The auto was owned by the Harringtons.

PART OF THE JOB. Being a policeman calls for the ability to handle varied problems and Dover Patrolman Tom Gintz solved one for 3-year-old Matt Lagan of Strasburg yesterday. Matt took a ride on his tricycle while waiting for his mother to return from a dentist's appointment and strayed too far from the home of his babysitter. Gintz found the tot lost and in tears. Following a ride in the crusier, up and down the streets in the east section of town in an effort to find Matt's home, the pair returned to the police station to await the inevitable call from a worried parent. Mother and son were reunited, ending the 2-hour adventure.
