By Pete Groh Daily Reporter Staff Writer Dover’s Miracle Lane Plaza was transformed into a galaxy of witches, goblins and what-have-you last night as the 43rd annual Halloween parade “played” to a “packed house.” The traditional “spookiest” attracted a “guestimated” 20,-OOO spectators who jammed into the shopping center and lined the parade route. There were the usual “uhs” and “ahs” from young parade watchers, but, somehow, mom and pop and grandpa and granny didn’t get into the “swing of things.” The l^-hour long event (the parade passed the judging area twice) was extremely smooth-running although it was somewhat longer than last year’s edition. It was the second time the parade has been held in the plaza. Copping top honors and the lion’s share of the $600 prize money in the float competition was a Pfaff Sewing Machine Co. entry, entered by Bill Jones of New Philadelphia. The extremely colorful creation was comprised of Betsy Ross putting final touches on the first 13-star American flag. The float, using a red, white and blue color scheme to carry out the parade’s “Our American Heritage” theme, won $250 as the “best of the parade” entry and $75 as the top commercial entry. In the background of the float was a large, gold-plated Liberty Bell while several white doves were “stopped in midair” on the front. Ed Quillen of New Philadelphia, who did much of the designing, said the construction took about 6 weeks—“on and off.” It was one of the top floats ever entered in the Dover parade. First place and $100 in the Organizational Division went to the Dover High freshmen, while the high school Seniors nabbed runnerup spot and $75. The floats both were used in last week’s homecoming celebration at Crater Stadium and finished the judging in reverse order. The freshmen entry used the theme “Inaugural Ball” and was done in a white, pink and blue color scheme with large white pillars. “Sutter’s Mills” was the theme of the colorful senior class entry, which was labeled “With a Little Bit of Luck.” Third place ($25) was won by the Dover-New Philadelphia Mothers’ of Twins Club, whose entry included a family scene See PARADE, Page 2 LBJ Reports Pledge From New Soviets Bv FRANK CORMIER SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (AP) — President Johnson said today he has received a heartening pledge from the new Soviet premier that the Soviet Union will “maintain its own I .search for peace with the West.” In a speech, prepared for delivery in the historic Mormon Tabernacle, Johnson said the United States “must work to guide the inevitable changes that lie ahead” in Communist countries.

Missing Tot On Way Home New Philadelphia police discovered yesterday that when searching for a 5-year-old boy the most logical place to start is at his home. Police were notified at 11:44 a m. by Martha Fickers of 205 Canal Ave. SE that the 5-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. James McBride of 915 W. High Ave. was missing. Mrs. McBride had left her son at the Fickers’ home and the young lad promptly ran off after his mother. Approximately 45 minutes later the tot’s mother located him heading for home. By WALTER R. MEARS HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -Sen. Barry Coldwater kicked off a Pennsylvania whistle-stop tour today, asserting “millions of unhappy, disgusted Americans across this country” will produce the century’s biggest political upset next Tuesday. The Republican presidential nominee said some people claim he has “just about given up” in his battle against President Johnson. But he said there is no truth in that. He launched his third railroad tour of the campaign after toughening his presidential chal lenge with a charge that Democrats have Communist backing and haven’t repudiated it. The Arizona senator opened his campaign day before a liar risburg crowd estimated by po lice at more than 8,000. The Republican nominee for the White House took to a campaign train after a journey through the Midwest and a de mand that the Democrats denounce Communists and “their backing.” He said Communist publications were “pulling for the defeat of Republican candidates.” Coldwater keynoted a five-stop railroad journey to Pittsburgh with a complaint that President Johnson    had used “false and degrading tricks” against him. “He tells the American public I want to tear up their Social Security cards,” Coldwater said in a speech for Lewistown, Pa. “There is not an ounce of truth in this smear, and my opponent knows that full well.” The whistle-stop    tour was Goldwater’s third    campaign foray into Pennsylvania, a state he believes the GOP ticket can carry if the Democrats are held to a 250,000-vote margin in Philadelphia. An Oshkosh, Wis., crowd rose to cheer him Wednesday when the Arizona senator brewed into his presidential bid the charge that Democrats have Communist backers.

The girl was picking them up and laying them down with the aplomb of the big girls during 2 trips around with the Tornado marchers. Many of the thousands attending the parade went on the supposition that the lass was the daughter of Houk, who has a girl about that size and age. “The first time I noticed her,” Houk remarked “was just as we were turning off Union Ave. into the plaza on the first trip. She watched Ladema Gibbs, (head majoret pinch hitting for ailing drum major Gary Jentes), fell right in step and was a real outstanding trooper.” According to Houk, the identity of the mystery majoret was never discovered and he See‘MYSTERY» Page 12 ★ “Harem girl" Patty Maurer, 9, and her partner, “Uncle Sam" Tom Crilley, 3, both of Mineral City, took home cath prizes for their costumes in last night's Halloween parade in Miracle Lane Shopping Plaza.

Wooster Ave. Man, Attorney Fail To Show At Court Hearing Merle Smith of RD I, Sugarcreek failed to appear for trial today in Common Pleas Court on a charge of non-support for which he was indicted by the September Grand Jury. A bench warrant was to be issued and served against Smith to have him picked up by sheriff deputies. Neither Smith nor his lawyer, Arthur Limbach, had given reason for not appearing. The trial, originally scheduled Oct. 21, was reset for today on the court’s information that Limbach was ill. Lightning Hits Several Area Electric Lines The Sugarcreek - Shanesville area, 2 New Philadelphia industrial plants and several area residents were without electric power for a short time early this morning as a result of the electrical and rain storm. Approximately an inch of rain was dumped on the area since 10:30 last night. Telephone service in the area was also disrupted. Ohio Power Co. officials reported that power to the Sugarcreek - Shanesville area was out approximately 42 minutes when lighting bolts struck several lines. They also reported that Warner & Swasey Co. and Ridge Tool Co. were without electricity for around an hour when lighting struck a 33,000-volt line along the B. & O. Railroad tract, west of the city.
