Dover Daily Reporter (Newspaper) - November 6, 1964, Dover, Ohio U.S. Traffic Toll Sets 9-Month Record, May Surpass Yearly CHICAGO (AP) — The nation’s traffic deaths in the first nine months this year hit an all-time record, and the toll appeared racing to a record high in 1964. The National Safety Council said today there were 34,570 deaths on highways from Jan. I to Oct. I. The total was an in First In Readership First In Photography First In News Coverage crease of IO per cent over the 31,310 killed in traffic accidents in the corresponding three quarters of last year. The council said the nation’s traffic fatalities, which for 20 consecutive months have exceeded those of the same month of a year earlier, apparently will reach a Toll of about 48,000 this year. That would be an all-time high after the previous record of 43,600 deaths last year. Highway deaths for the 12-month period up to Oct. I totaled 46,860, an increase of IO per cent over the 42,655 in the preceding IO months. Traffic fatalities in September totaled 4,070, a record for the month. The council said the increase of 2 per cent over the 3,990 deaths in September last year reflected a curb on the rising accident death record, adding the August toll of 4,870 was 13 per cent up from 4,310 in August 1963. The death rate, which has been accounted for partly by a sharply increasing rate of automobile and truck use, has been zooming even faster than the number of miles traveled by motorists until September. It was 6.1 deaths per IOO million miles traveled in September this year compared with 6.3 in September a year ago. But for the nine months, this year’s death rate per IOO million miles was 5.5 compared with 5.4 for the same period of 1963. Statisticians noted that about half of the increase in traffic deaths had resulted from collisions between vehicles. ThisThe Daily Reporter VOL 61. NO. IOO. 22 PAGES. Largest Circulation In Tuscarawas County Dover-New Philadelphia, Ohio, Friday, November 6, 1964 was an indication, they said, that congestion had a bearing on the rise. Other factors included a swelling number of young drivers, product of the postwar baby boom, and, apparently, an increasing number of high-performance compact cars in use.

(AP) — The stricken Mariner 3 spacecraft whirled through space as a helpless hulk today, unable to fulfill its mission as the first spacecraft to probe the planet Mars. With Mariner 3 a $25-million loss, the National Aeronautics and .Space Administration turned attention to Mariner 4, a twin spacecraft which officials hope to launch within two weeks. Exact date for the launching depends on evaluation of information from Thursday’s failure. The space agency has until Dec. I to fire the Mariner 4 rocket. After that, Mars will not be in position for a launching until December 1966. Mariner 3 was to have crossed 350 million miles of space in 8t£ months, skimming within 8,600 miles of Mars next July 17. During a brief encounter with the planet, the craft was to have snapped pictures and gathered scientific data. There were indications that the failure resulted because a fiberglass shroud did not separate from the spacecraft. The shroud was designed to protect Mariner 3 from aerodynamic stresses during the upward push through the earth’s atmosphere, then was to eject. Jack N. James, Mariner project director, said early See MARINERS, Page 6 GOP CONTROL FIGHT BREAKS INTO OPEN Nixon, Rocky Hurl Verbal 'Barbs Charges are flying as Republican leaders begin the struggle for control of their party.

By BARRY SCHWEID WASHINGTON (AP) — Richard M. Nixon has fired at Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller as a “spoilsport” and been called “peevish” in return as the fight for control of the Republican party breaks into the open. But like former President Dwight D. Eisenhower, they appealed for unity. The party struggle — essentially an effort by moderates to wrest control from Coldwater conservatives — had been pretty much off-stage until Thursday. But then, at a news conference in New York, Nixon spoke up. The former vice president, wrho campaigned widely for Barry Coldwater, said Rockefeller, who was cool to the Arizonan’s campaign, “got his pound of flesh.” The New York governor, said Nixon, was the “principal divider” of the Coldwater campaign. And, Nixon continued, the party’s future rests with “unifiers rather than dividers.” Rockefeller Is vacationing in Spain, but a spokesman in New York released a statement calling Nixon’s remarks a “peevish, post-election utterance.” Said the New York governor, a member of his party’s liberal wing: “This is a time for constructive rebuilding of the Republican party as acvital force in the mainstream of American political life. Mr. Nixon’s latest maneuver is hardly calculated to advance this effort.” Party moderates are expected to press their drive for control of the party at a governors conference next month. And, if they make any headway, they can be expected to pull out the stops at a meeting of the Republican National Committee in January. Coldwater said at a news conference Wednesday that he wants to keep the party on a conservative course. Gov. Robert E. Smylie of Idaho, who already has said the GOF “must move toward the center of the political spectrum,” announced Thursday he plans to call a meeting of the Republican Governors Association about Dec. I, probably in a Midwestern city. Strike Hits Ford Output At 8 Plants Bv GORDON TAIT SYDNEY, Australia (AP) -An Australian athlete had himself shipped home c.o.d. from Britain in a wooden trate because he couldn’t afford a passenger ticket for the 11,000-mile flight, Reginald Spiers, 22, of Adelaide, spent 63 hours in the slatted box without food or water, Sydney newspapers reported. Friends and relatives in Adelaide confirmed the story today. The accounts said a friend nailed up the box Oct. 17 in London and Spiers landed at Perth Oct. 20 on an Air India flight, then hitchhiked 1,800 miles to Adelaide. “There was enough space between the planks to give me air and allow me to peep out,” he said. An Air India spokesman said an empty wooden crate big enough to hold a man was found today at the air cargo depot in Perth. Sent c.o.xL, it was consigned to a nonexistent shoe factory at a nonexistent address. Sydney Spiers, a Bolivia Gets New President LA PAZ, Bolivia (AP)—Vice President Rene Rarrientos, a general and former air force chief of staff, has emerged from the Bolivian revolt as president just as ousted President Victor Paz Estenssoro said he would. Barrientos, a leader of the revolt against Paz, flew from his home in Cochabamba to La Paz Thursday, and the chief of the armed forces, Gen. Alfredo Obando Candia, announced he and the vice president would be co-presidents. An hour later Barrientos announced Obando had decided to resign in his favor “to cooperate in the re-establishment of tranquility in the country.” Obando had taken control in COLUMBUS — It has cost trol Director Donald D.

He gave notice to Air India that he wanted to consign a crate of plastic emulsion to a Perth firm. He said he climbed inside the box Oct. 17 and friends drove him to the airport. At Bombay, he was taken out on a forklift, held aloft, then manhandled into another Boeing 707 “and soon we were flying again.” Spiers said “The crate was dumped in a shed and after a few hours I decided to break out.” He crawled out dizzy and weak, he said. After resting awhile, he cut his way through a wire mesh door and hitchhiked home to his wife and daughter in time to attend a brother’s wedding. Spiers said the crate with him inside weighed about 500 pounds and the freight charge was about $950. That is $280 more than the passenger fare, but passengers can’t travel c.o.d. “As far as I know, no freight payment has been collected on this consignment,” said the Air India spokesman. safe, i Many Authorities Ignoring Veterans' Day Liquor Hearing Opportunities DETROIT (AP)—The United Auto Workers Union struck today against key Ford Motor Co. manufacturing and assembly plants over unsettled local labor agreements. At least eight out of ll unsettled units were struck. The walkout left Ford with a I selling supply of about 32 days of autos and a 38-selling-days supply of trucks. The effect on production could not immediately be detailed, but indications were Ford could make some autos for two weeks or more. A Ford spokesman said assembly plants were struck this morning at Dallas; Wayne, Mich., truck; Wayne autos; Chicago stamping; Ypsilanti, Mich., manufacturing; Sheffield, Ala., manufacturing; Sterling Twp., Mich., manufacturing, and Louisville assembly. The status of the assembly plant at St. Louis and manufacturing plants at Bedford, Ohio, and Buffalo, N.Y. wras not immediately determined. The bargaining units had their international union’s approval to walk out at IO a.m. if settlements were lacking at that hour. Only those plants with unsettled local contracts w'hich supplement the national agreement, signed in September, were given permission to strike. Ford has 160,000 production workers in 90 bargaining units across the country. The number of men off the See FORD, Page 6 LOUD AND CLEAR.

Harold Simmons Here the 17 Republican governors can be expected to chart a course for reviving the party from the crushing defeat it sustained last Tuesday with Sen.

Only on the governors’ level did the Republicans have something to cheer about amid the carnage of President Johnson’s landslide victory. They gained See VERBAL ‘BARBS’, Page I * Ike Claims False Public Image Hurt AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) -Former President Dwight D. Eisenhower says the Republican party must embrace a wide spectrum of political thinking, one that will not be tom apart by divisive and meaningless labels. At the same time he said the party definitely was hurt by the landslide election of President Johnson. In his first statement since a torrent of Democratic votes buried the hopes of Sen. Barry Coldwater, Eisenhower blamed his party’s defeat, at least partially, on what he termed a false public image. He made the remark Thursday in a statement he read at a news conference at the Augusta National Golf Club, where he has been vacationing the past few days. “We need now to consult among ourselves as to methods for correcting the false ‘image* of Republicanism, which, far too long, has confused so many of our citizens and led them to think of it as a political doctrine designed primarily for the rich and the privileged,” Eisenhower said. In response to a newsman’s question, Eisenhower said he thinks the Republican party has been pictured as being indifferent to the common man and his problems. He outlined principles which he said were held substantially by every party member. He said the party, above all, is dedicated to the security and progress of all Americans. “Around these convictions and purposes we can unify our party—one that will refuse to be torn apart by divisive and meaningless labels.
