Coroner Philip T. Doughten indicated he would not make a ruling pending the outcome of the Sheriff Department investigation. Lewis, expected to be charged with intoxication, was found in a parked car on a dirt road which crosses the tracks near an overhead on Route 212, just outside Zoar. He was not expected to be questioned until he “sobered up,” deputies said. According to reports, the man claimed he knew nothing about the death except ‘‘his buddy had walked up there (the tracks).” Members of the train crew told deputies they spotted the man across the tracks on a curve about 400 feet ahead of the train. They immediately pulled the emergency stop but several wheels of the engine and cars passed over the victim. Crew members were: William C. Lutz, conductor; W. C. Mil-by, engineer, and Earnest Bueh er, brakeman. The body was removed to Un Ion Hospital in a Lewis ambulance. Self-Inflicted Gun Shot Kills Sparta Man EAST SPARTA — George M.

Before Mrs. Schwerner visited the White House, press secretary George Reedy told reporters that efforts to find the trio had been stepped up and expanded.

At least IO persons were reported drowned and scores more were injured. The storm’s winds of up to 95 miles an hour tore through populous central Luzon Island before dawn, demolished thousands of shanty homes and left Manila without power, light, newspapers and public transportation. Unofficial reports said seven persons drowned in swirling flood waters in the Manila area. The communications blackout delayed word of casualties and damage in the provinces. Rains continued but winds had subsided by late Tuesday morning as Winnie moved over the South China Sea toward the China mainland. The Weather Bureau said the eye of the storm passed directly over Manila. The winds tore off roofing, knocked down stone and brick walls and uprooted huge trees. Hundreds of cars and buses were stalled in flooded streets. Telephone poles were knocked down and news services blacked out. Radio stations were silenced when their transmitting towers were blown down. Manila International Airport’s control tower was unusable, grounding all international and domestic flights. Phila Council OK's Payment For Road Costs A bombastic battle over finances at a special New Philadelphia city council meeting last night quieted into a unani mous approval of legislation permitting payment of $32,560 in costs for construction of Route US 250 within the city.

City Auditor Charlotte White touched off a hot debate when she asked where $9,258 of $32,-560 was to be obtained as there had been a deficit in city funds since the year’s beginning. A bond issue of $23,000 previously had been sold in preparation for the highway project. Councilman Ted Ricker, head of the finance committee, said he had no solution. “Ifs the first I heard about the money being needed,” Ricker declared, “except for the $8,-000 we voted on in January.” He was referring to the Jan. 13 ordinance legislating for building of U S 250 within the corporate limits. Council agreed at that time to pay $8,000 as lump sum for its share of the building costs of a bridge spanning S. Broadway. But Council, at the same time, agreed to pay IOO per cent of the costs for such items Treasurer Garnon Thomas re viewed the status of various city funds and pointed out that there were no unappropriated funds available, except in the Water Department. To transfer any money from that department would require a court order. Council President William Hinig said he thought the $9,258 should come from the Street Fund and said he had understood there was more $10,000 in unappropriated money in it. Thomas said outstanding bills would require most of that mon ey' Mrs. White also admitted there was some $16,000 rn unappropriated money in the general fund, but payment of outstanding bills would put the fund in the red if $9,000 is transferred. Under those conditions, she stated she could not certify (as the proposed legislation demanded) that money was available. Thomas told Council he had been warned by State Examiner Nick Miller during the past week that he should sign no checks against city funds unless the money certified in available. “I’ll never sign the check,” Thomas declared, “until I’m Tom Kappeler ★ Dover Youth Was Hero In Lake Rescue See ROAD COSTS, Page 2 SUGARCREEK ESTIMATES ALREADY FILED Township Budget Airing Thursday Further inquiry has revealed that it was lifeguard Tom Kappeler, son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Kappeler of 212 E. 12th St., who revived Leroy Croston, 22, of Zanesville, after he was found unconscious in IO feet of water at Atwood Lake on Saturday. Kappeler resorted to mouth-to-mouth resuscitation for approximately IO minutes, starting when the young Negro soldier’s body had been pulled into shallow water. A big cheer went up from the crowd when Croston started to breathe again. He then was administered oxygen as an ambulance brought him to Union Hospital, from where ie was dismissed Sunday. Dunn Foul/ of 115 Cross St., Dover, another Atwood lifeguard, located Croston’s body, which was partially “locked” in mud 12 feet down but was unable to pull the soldier up because he had exhausted his air. Kappeler then went down and grabbed Croston, being assisted by an unidentified man once he had reached the top of the lake. Kappeler, who was 19 in March, is in his second year as an Atwood lifeguard. A pre-med sophomore at Ohio State, he was in the swimming program at the YMCA in Dover for approximately IO years. He took a refresher course in life saving at OSU earlier this year in preparation for this summer’s duties at Atwood.
