Nations Voters Give Pollsters Rough Time By REIMAN MORIN AP Special Correspondent NEW YORK (AP) — Public-opinion pollsters have had a rough time in this presidential election year, trying to define the intentions of that skittery critter, the American voter. Nor is this the first time he has confounded them, notably in 1936, in 1948 and to a lesser degree in 1952. So some questions arise. Is President Johnson in fact as far ahead of Arizona Sen. Barry Coldwater as the polls indicate at this stage? Generally the figures give Johnson around 60 per cent of the vote. Some polls run higher than that, and some show a slightly lower figure. On Oct. 18 George Gallup, director of the American Institute of Public Opinion, gave Johnson 64 per cent and described this as an unprecedented lead.” Are some factors, deep seated and difficult to measure, operating for Coldwater? On Oct. 12 pollster Louis Harris said the GOP candidate “has cut President John’s lead.” Harris put it at 58 per cent to 34 for Coldwater with eight per cent undecided. He said 539 replies were received. On Oct. 14 a newspaper trade magazine, The American Press, said its poll of weekly and small daily newspaper publishers showed that the publishers believe Coldwater will win majority support from voters in their circulation areas. The magazine said the poll — taken mostly in rural areas — gave Coldwater 59.9 per cent to Johnson’s 40.1 per cent. Wallace J. Olds, managing editor of the magazine, See POLLSTERS, Page I San Diego.

(AP) - The Justice Department moves today to appeal a federal judge’s effort to jail the U.S. district attorney and the U.S. attorney general. It is a strange judicial clash, still mainly obscured by grand jury secrecy. In a dramatic court session Thursday, Dist. Atty. Robert Hauberg refused to sign several indictments prepared by a “blue ribbon” federal grand jury. His signature is necessary to make indictments legal. Reacting sharply, Dist. Judge Harold Cox ruled Hauberg guilty of contempt of court. He also ordered civil contempt of court proceedings against acting Atty. Gen. Nicholas Katzenbach. Instead of jailing Hauberg immediately, Judge Cox allowed five days for an appeal to be filed. The grand jury is the one summoned into session at Biloxi to consider evidence in the murder of three civil rights workers near Philadelphia, Miss. No indictments involving that case were returned. When the federal grand jury reconvened in Jackson, several indictments were proposed by See CLASH, Page 2 Highest Honors Await Hoover By RAYMOND J. CROWLEY Tuesday at the age of 90.

He was fined an additional $31.20 on a reckless operation charge following an accident Wednesday on the high school annex property. Police said Bodenheimer drove a car, belonging to Richard Schafer of 932 W. State St. into a panel truck belonging to the school. Damage to the car amounted to $200. WASHINGTON (AP) —Herbert Clark Hoover returns in death today to receive highest funeral honors in a capital where he served as 31st president. President Johnson leads the country in the tributes to a man he has called “a wise American — a humanitarian citizen of all mankind.” Johnson arranged to meet the funeral train as it arrived from New York in early afternoon, and escort the caisson to the great rotunda of the Capitol. There the catafalque that bore the bodies of Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy was readied. The ceremonies include the firing of a 21-gun salute, ruffles and flourishes from military bands, the playing of “Hail to the Chief” and such songs as “America the Beautiful.” Neither of the country’s, two living former presidents was able to attend today’s ceremonies. Dwight D. Eisenhower was in Walter Red Army Medical Center here for treatment of a painful cough and inflammation of his windpipe. Harry S. Truman is convalescing at his Independence, Mo., home from the effects of a fall. At about 2 p.m., Eastern Standard Time, the rotunda was to be opened to the public until 8 p.m., or later if necessary. Sunday the body is to be flown to Iowa, for burial in Hoover’s native town, West Branch. Hoover died in New York sands filed past his casket there in the great Episcopal Church of St. Bartholomew’s on Park Avenue. And Thursday the tumult of presidential politics was stilled for the moment as all four contenders for highest national posts attended simple, impressive services in the church. The candidates — President Johnson, Sen. Barry Coldwater, Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey and Rep. William E. Miller — sat fairly close together but except for a nod passing between Coldwater and Humphrey, they did not seem to notice each other.

Death Still Possible Leaf Sweep-Up Set Dover Service Director R. S. Ream announced this morning that leaves in city streets will not be swept until the middle of next week because of a broken belt on the street sweeper. AKRON, Ohio (AP)—A convicted murderer who missed a date with the electric chair 44 years ago faced today the possibility that the date might be kept after all. Leroy Marion Dunlap, 64, had been hiding his real identity since he escaped from jail here May 12, 1920. Dunlap was arrested Thursday in a soldiers’ home in Washington, D.C. He waived extradition and was returned here Thursday night. Dunlap was confined in city jail, but a detective said he would be transferred to Summit County Jail. It was there that he and two other men sawed through a window and escaped. The trio and two other men were charged in January, 1920, of slaying Steven Bossos, an Akron restaurant owner. Dunlap, accused of being the triggerman, escaped two days after his trial started. He was convicted in absentia, as Ohio law provides, and sentenced to the electric chair for first degree murder on May 17, 1920. Attorney Cletus G. Roetzel, the original prosecutor, specu lated Thursday that only intervention by Gov. James A. Rhodes, or a new trial, should one be granted, can save Dunlap’s life. “I knew it was coming,” Dunlap said Thursday when he was arrested by Summit County prosecutor George Pappas and Akron police Sgt. Jack Carlton. “It has been a long time. I was hoping it wouldn’t.” A retired serviceman, he had been living under the name of Harry Walker. He was traced to the home, where he had been living six years, through an FBI fingerprint check. “Did they bum George Neich-ter?” Dunlapeasked Pappas. Neichter and his brother, Louis, escaped from jail with Dunlap. George Neichter was convicted and sentenced to die, but was spared by Gov. James M Cox just 13 minutes before he was to be electrocuted. Louis Neichter was not recaptured. He died in a fall from a water tower in Massillon, Ohio, in January, 1928. John O. Smith and Ralph Richardson pleaded guilty in the Bossos slaying and drew life terms. Both were paroled after serving ll years. After his escape, Dunlap said, he fled to Rochester, N.Y., working as a restaurant counterman. Then he enlisted in the Army and was discharged as a corporal after five years. -He moved to St. Louis, where he worked as a streetcar operator. Dunlap said he married there and has a son living in St. Louis. He returned to the Army in 1942, served a three-year hitch, then joined the Air Force in 1946. He retired from the Air Force in 1958, and has been living at the soldiers home since. An Evening With Dr. Crane Mail $1.00 to Tho' Daily Reporter 350 Reporter Ct., Dover for each ticket. Don’t miss this Thursday October 29 appearance! Philo Firemen Saturate Old Brewery Site New Philadelphia firemen yes-erday answered 3 calls to S. Broadway where employes of A. J. Baltes Co. of Norwalk were dismantling the old brewery building to make way for the Route 250 and 8 New Philadelphia bypass. Calls were received at 2:25, ;56 and 9:40 p.m. after fires were started from sparks of a cutting torch. The la$t time firemen saturated the area with 2,000 gallons of water. There was no damage. In 2 other calls Thursday, firemen went to 2nd St. SE to wet down grass where a cutting torch was being used by city workers and to 157 Park Ave. NW, where leaves were being burned in an alley. There was no damage in either instance. M ;; IMM Train Trestle Fire Battled Dover firemen were summoned at 7:50 last night to the Tuscarawas River train trestle near the Harchem plant at MGoreville where a fire had started around the base of the cement abutment in the middle of the river. According to a fireman, the blaze could have ignited the railroad ties and the entire trestle had there been more wind and time. BAO Railroad workmen had been repairing the trestle earlier yesterday afterLoon with a cutting torch. Sparks from the torch ignited drift wood and logs and other brush below the trestle and workmen failed to extinguish the fire completely before leaving.
