The only transfer of school territory defeated at the polls was the one involving the eastern portion of Rush Local to Gnadenhutten - Clay. Residents of Gnadenhutten and Tuscarawas-Warwick gave large pluralities to the proposed Southern Local School District to offset negative ballots in Goshen and Salem-Washington Locals. The total vote was 2,142 In favor to 1,658 against. The Twin City School merger, involving Uhrichsville City, Dennison Exempted and Union Local School Districts, passed 4,313 to 1,176 on its initial ballot appearance. Every precinct but one (3-4) voted favorably to rack up the nearly 4 to I verdict. Stone Creek-Jefferson voters, facing the loss their high school charter next June 30, voted narrowly, 197-177, to join the New Philadelphia District. The action is subject to approval by the New Philadelphia Board of Education, which has See MERGERS, Page 16 Dover Okays Top Sweep On School Levies By Pete Groh Dally Reporter Staff Writer Dover city and Tuscarawas County voters placed education ahead of their pocketbooks at the polls Tuesday, passing, without exception, all renewal and additional school tax levy requests. Heading the “green light” list was approval of a 6-mill renewal and 2-mill additional operating levies in the Dover School District. Tnc renewal carried by 4.398 to 2,035 while the new request passed by a slimmer margin, 3,333 to 3,167, or 166 votes. Only a majority of I w’as needed on all levies. Providing a big “push” in passing the 2-mill levy was the 236-157 affirmative vote in Precinct D, Ward 2 (Jake Dum-mermuth’s garage). That 79-vote margin helped to offset a defeat the additional request took in the Winfield area where voters turned it down 284-154. Both levies run for IO years The 2-mill additional, which will place Dover’s millage at 24 40, will be used for additional staff, textbooks and services needed because of an increase of 550 students since 1959. Goshen (Midvale) Local School District voters also added an additional “spark” to their education system by passing a 4-mill additional operat- See SCHOOLS, Page 28 PRESIDENT LYNDON B. JOHNSON VICE PRESIDENT-ELECT HUBERT HUMPHREY Voting Wave' Carries Dems To Huge Edge By JACK BELL    j WASHINGTON (AP)—President Johnson rode a massive tidal! wave of votes to a smashing victory over Sen. Barry Coldwater andj promptly called on all Americans to “face the world as one.”; Elected with him in the deluge which some key Republicans survived was Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey of Minnesota, who in January will fill the present vacancy in the vice presidency. Youngs Hold Posts As Sheriff, Engineer William Hinig State Representative The 56-year-old President, who has served 354 days since the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, said early today in Austin, Tex., that no words were adequate “to really express the feeling of this occasion.” “Most of all,” he said, “I wish to be equal to your confidence and to the hopes of all of the people of America.” He said that now that the election is over Americans must “face the world as one.” “I ask all those who supported me and all those that opposed me to forget our differences, because there are many more things in America that unite us than divide us.” Johnson won his first elective White House term by battering down Republican bastions across the nation. Maine and Vermont fell in his column as did usually Republican Kansas. Only in the South where he lost five states, and rossibly in Arizona, did his surge falter in the sweep toward the greatest presidential victory of modern times — the largest ever in terms of votes rolled up and margin over his opponent. It lent Coldwater, the conservative who offered “a choice, not an echo,” with the limited consolation of having carried Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, and perhaps his native Arizona. The thundering Johnson wave hit the Republican party a shattering blow, engulfing moderates like Sen. Kenneth B. Keating in New York and conservatives like Rep. Bruce Alger of Texas. But some party members who can be expected to take leading parts in the struggle certain to develop over control of the GOP survived the storm. Standouts among these were Gov. George Romney who won re-election as See ALL THE WAY, Page 18 Taft-Young Race Still Uncertain' Bv AL DOPKING COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP)—Republican Robert Taft Jr., and Democrat Stephen M.

MAY SIGNAL NEW INCOME TAX PUSH Phi I a Levy Turned Down By Norm Singleton Daily Reporter Staff Writer Non-elected New Philadelphia employes had the skids put under their bid for a salary increase Tuesday when voters rejected by 128 votes a proposed 1-mill tax levy. The result may signal a new push for a city income tax, discussion of which was tabled by Council pending the levy outcome.' Recording winning margins in only IO of 26 precincts, the sought-after tax hike was defeated 3,191-3.063. Approved, however, was a combination 2-mill renewal and increase for current operating expenses over a 5-year period. The count was 3,574-2,284. New Philadelphia balloters, however, weren’t the only ones in Tuscarawas County splitting their opinions on dual tax lev- j ies. In Bolivar, a 3.7-mill bond's-jsue, covering a 30-year period for construction of a sewage DAY BRIGHTENER Those who say alcohol and gasoline don’t mix never saw them tangle at a crossroads. treatment plant, was turned down 293-153. On the other hand residents gave a 270-173 nod to a 2 mill tax renewal for current operating expenses. Both additional tax levies proposed to Uhrichsville poli-goers were approved. One was for 2 mills passed 1,507-980 and provides funds to meet current operating expenses. The other, carrying a one-mill tab, passed 1,636-878 and will provide and maintain safety equipment and a new fire truck. Elsewhere in the county 5 renewals and I levy (Shanesville) for additional funds were passed. Turned down were 3 See PHI LA, Page 26 finish today for Young’s U. S. Senate seat even as President Johnson rolled onto a record landslide in Ohio’s election. First Taft, 47, forged ahead to a comfortable 100,000 majority, then the 75-year - old Young overtook him with an avalanche of votes from Cleveland, his home town. With 95 per cent of the vote count reported, the outcome in the see-saw race became more cloudy. First, the secretary of state’s office, tabulating returns, reported Young ahead by 2,000. Then on the basis of returns from 12,970 of the state’s 13,485 polling places, Taft was back ahead by 2,000. The Network Election Service, reporting on 12,962 polling places, had Taft ahead by 39,000. Then, the NES put young back ahead 1,882,430 to 1,875,781 on See UNCERTAIN, Page 15 By Joe Woerdeman Daily Reporter Staff Writer County Democratic cand dates rode high on President Johnson’s coat-tails and landed every office open to election, eliminating a Republican in the process. The most resounding triumph was scored by New Philadelphia Council President William Hinig, who whipped County Commissioner Delmar Baer in the contest for a 2-year term as state representative by a vote of 19,003-12,361 for a margin of 6,642. Baer, in his unsuccessful try, left the commissioner’s post which he had held 2 successive terms. He managed to capture the majority vote in only 3 of the 20 cities and incorporate villages in the county — his home town, Tuscarawas, Shanesville and Sugarcreek, the latter by 4 votes. Probably the greatest surprise was the election of 39-year-old William E. Winters, New Philadelphia Democrat, to I of the 2 open Commissioner seats. In his first political campaign, Winters polled 15,811 votes to beat Russell Dessecker (R) by 1,719 ballots in the closest county race. Incumbent Jacob Dummer muth of Dover got the biggest vote, 18,633, among the 4 com-•etitors for the commissioner posts. This won back for the Democrats one seat they lost 2 years ago in the election of Republican J. Richard Demuth, whose term runs 2 more years. Dessecker’s vote totaled 14,-092 and his fellow party candi- Majority Favored These For County Offices ...Page IS Bow Wins 8th Term ...Page 32 4 Unopposed Dems Get New Terms    ...Page 44 Robert Taft Jr. U.S. Senator Stephen Young U.S. Senator mmmmmmmKmm i ON THE I N SID m :'    mumm ani * Dear Abby ..................

Harry Clever, airport manager, said the changeover was made last week. Midwest we ll stop at New Philadelphia only if reservations have been made in advance. Changes also were made in flight times, incoming from Columbus at 8:30 a.m. and 4:05 date, Willard E. Leggett, something of “regular,” ran fourth with 10,575. Jay M. Roth, a veteran Uhrichsville Republican and councilman, lost out by 3,625 votes on rather strong bid to upset incumbent Charles E. Young as county engineer. Young, in the last year, had run into considerable trouble with labor problems among his road-and-bridge department workers.
