Dover-New Philadelphia, Ohio, Saturday, September 26, 1964 7 CENTSFair Cuts Concluding Caper Today Friday proved the banner day of the 114th annual Tuscarawas County Fair with gate admissions just 61 short of the 4,000 mark with an estimated 9,500 persons on the grounds. The turnout boosted the 4-day paid total to 11,093 with a combined turnout of 35,000.Firefighters Hope To Curb Rampage Soon SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) — Fog hit the Santa Barbara fire today. It burned on, but firemen began to speak optimistically of soon curbing its rampage. The blaze has charred 88,000 acres since it started Tuesday. It is still out of control. No estimate has been made for controlling it. But the weather — long the firemen’s foe — suddenly turned benign. It sent Pacific fogs, in ever-deepening layers, into the steep canyons -of the Santa Ynez Range, where 2,000 men are fighting the fire on a 20-mile-long front. On many ridges firemen battled the blaze in the eerie hush of zero visibility fog. The forecast was for more fog, rising humidities, and cooler temperatures. The Santa Ana winds — which three times carried flames into Santa Barbara sections — have disappeared. No more are forecast. They blow from inland to the sea. The only breezes expected over the weekend are gentle winds from the sea toward the land. Since it started, the fire has destroyed 78 homes and major structures, causing an estimated $3.5 million damage. One man was killed.Midwest Delays Air Service To Area Until Get. 5 Edmund Lunken, president of Midwest Airways, informed the Chamber of Commerce Friday afternoon that regular air service between New Philadelphia, Columbus and Cleveland would be delayed a week. Lunken stated that the delay was caused by “conflicting work schedules of the Federal Aviation Administration in conducting pilot route checks prior to inauguration of regular scheduled service.” Regular service was to have begun Monday, but will not begin now until Oct. 5. With the curtain coming down today, the harness races at 2 p.m. and a heavy-class tractor pull, in addition to a Powder Puff event, at 8 p.m. will be the closing highlights. Being an off day for school children, officials expected a fairly large crowd. The No. I event yesterday was the annual 4-H steer sale, which saw 44 head go on the auction block. The grand champion, owned by Clark Rosenberry of RD 2, New Philadelphia, brought the top pound price — 81 cents— with the totaling being $907. The purchaser was F. B. Maurer Market of New Philadelphia and Uhrichsville. With prices being under last year, the market operators bought 6 other steers. The reserve champion, owned by Gerald Kendle of RD 3, Dover, went for 49 cents a pound, or $497. It was purchased by Superior Provision of Massillon for Beaber’s IGA Foodliner in New Philadelphia. Superior also purchased 9 calves for Buehler’s Supermar- See FAIR, Page 33 Gas Tank Blast Kills 3 Persons COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Two huge gas tanks blew up in a sheet of flame in the Copenhagen suburb of Valby today. Three persons were reported killed and more than TOO injured. The explosion tore the roofs off the 90-feet-high tanks. Fire and smoke billowed over the city. Scores of ambulances and fire engines converged on the scene. One police officer said two persons, probably gas plant workers, were killed. Most of the injured were hurt by flying glass and brickwork. Police evacuated about 200 people from nearby apartment Cotton candy is a tasteful delight, one of the many "side attractions" at special carnival-like events. Brother Mark, 5, gives sister Renee Ann, 2, a sample of his purchase during yesterday's visit to the County Fair. They're the children of Mr. and Mrs. Reno Stevanus of Sugarcreek. lOn The Inside....!

Eyewitnesses said “a big column of fire” shot skywards, lasting for several minutes. Windows rattled five miles away. Ambulances and fire engines rushed to the scene two miles from downtown Copenhagen. The gas plant is in a densely populated district of Valby. The big container was completely destroyed. Parts of it were scattered all over the gas works area. One police source said still another explosion was feared. The plant area was cordoned off by hundreds of firemen, and no one was allowed to come closer than 500 yards. The reason for the blast was not announced. Telephone communications were down in wide areas of the city. Racial Peacemaker Bombed For Third Time NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) — A jarring explosion shook the home of Mayor John Nosser last night and he blamed the bombing — third on property he owns in ll days — on his role as a racial peacemaker. There were no injuries. Damage to the two-story, columned home was extensive. Almost simultaneously, a loud blast 15 blocks away tore a hole in the driveway outside the home of Willie Washington, a Negro contractor whose house was bombed once before this summer. Again there were no injuries and property damage was limited to shattered windows. Within an hour, police picked up an unidentified Negro man who they said was a suspect in the bombing of the mayor’s home. Police declined to give any details. “I don’t believe it was done by colored people,” Nosser told The Associated Press. “I believe it was done by white people. But it could have been either side. “I’m trying to keep peace in this community.” Nosser said he had stepped on a few toes of both races See BOMBED, Page 33Vandals Set Fire To Home A possible serious fire, attributed to vandals, was averted at the home of Ray Espen-schied of 310 W. 10th St., Dover, last night because of the watchfulness of neighbors. Mr. and Mrs. Don Stuber reported to Espenschied that a burning broom handle, apparently removed from a trash barrel near the alley beside the Espenschied home, had been placed against the side of the residence, causing the shingles to catch fire. Espenschied removed the burning shingles and extinguished the fire before the Dover firemen arrived. Mr. and Mrs. Stuber told police they had seen several young boys in the alley before the incident, but could not identify them.
