BOLTON VATICAN CITY (AP) - Pope Paul VI appears determined to I push a campaign to encourage I nations to convert arms money I into a fund to ease poverty in the world. He brought up the idea a second time in his annual Christinas message Tuesday night. The Homan Catholic pontiff first made such an appeal early j this month while in Bombay. The teeming masses of India’s impoverished moved him to urge nations to spend some of their armament funds for the relief of hunger and suffering. In his Christmas address, Pope Paul said: “We would like to see a generous-minded investigation of how — at least in part and by stages — military expenditure could be diverted to humanitarian ends.” He said advantages would come to both the contributing countries and those in need. Since his original suggestion, the Pope apparently has decided the first step toward a world fund should be research into how the idea can be made concrete. Pope Paul devoted several sections of his Christmas message to the needy. “We do not hesitate,” he said, “to make our own, once more, See POPE, Page 2 Those Away From Home In For' Treats' Christmas is a time for families to be together to share the joys of the season. Those in the Children’s Receiving Home, County Infirmary, hospital and county jail on Christmas will not be with their families, but it will still be a special occasion for them through the efforts of persons in charge. Fourteen children at the receiving home on S. Tuscarawas Ave. in Dover will have all the trappings for a grand; day. The tree and dining room have been gaily decorated, and there are plenty of gifts waiting to be opened. If they can take time out long enough to eat, they will enjoy a dinner including* turkey, ham, chicken vege-, table casserole, escalloped potatoes, cranberry sauce and a relish plate, with strawberry j shortcake, pie and ice cream! for desert. Residents of the County Infirmary have been entertained with evening programs and caroling for the last 2 weeks and have received many gifts from well-wishers. Some of them will be able to be with relatives and families on Christmas, but those who cannot will receive a special; baked ham dinner, with ice. cream and cake provided by the Police Department. Santa has been visiting and distributing treats to the chil-; dren at Union Hospital and car-; olers have been serenading patients throughout the yuletide 1 season. The hospital will probably be a busy place during visiting hours on Christmas, and there is a special meal on tap for patients, too, with their choice of roast turkey, dressing and gravy or chopped sirloin steak and mashed potatoes, cranberry salad and vegetables. Desert will be pumpkin or mince pie or holiday ice cream. County Jail inmates have not been forgotten either. They have been remembered by friends and by the Salvation Army during the holiday season and will also receive a special Christmas dinner. “. . .

It is as new as the church bells ringing out this year to summon worshipers to celebrate the birth of the God-Man w'hose mission was to bring the peace1 of Heaven to men of good will! on earth.

The new law gives commissioners discretionary power in permitting or refusing an addition of $2,000 to the pay of county district judges. Base pay for these judges is $1,500. To this base sum is added further pay at a 3 cents per capita rate—which in this county amounts to approximately $2,300. Under the old Ohio law, com-were permitted to grant an additional $1,000, and and in this county did so. Thus, the county district judges, up to Dennison Pair Treated Alter Phila Mishap Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Parker of 504 Johnson Ave., Dennison, were treated in Union Hospital Wednesday night following a 2-car accident on Union Ave. in New Philadelphia. The couple suffered contusions. A police report on the mishap was not available at press time. The crash was one of 4 investigated yesterday. John D. MacEaehen, 18, of 1203 Lakeview Dr., New Philadelphia, was cited for failure to yield the right-of-way following a mishap at 4:10 p.m. Wednesday on 4th St. NW. They said MacEaehen pulled from a service station, colliding with an auto operated by William J. Harris, 40, of Bridgeport. His wife, Emma Harris, 42, complained of a neck injury. In an accident IO minutes later at 4th St. NW and Fair Ave., a car driven bv Eva A. Strawn, 58, of 762 2nd St. SE, New Philadelphia, collided with one operated by John E.

Fox, 37, of 439 W. 7th St., Dover, struck the rear of one operated by Frederick B. Loomis, 29, of 869 Orchard Ave. NW. Fox was cited. Loomis told officers he stopped when a dog ran in front of him. In an accident reported at the station, a car driven by Lowell Burrier, 19, of 561 2nd St. NE, struck the rear of one operated by William L. Chaney, 61, of Bolivar at 7:38 p.m. Wednesday on W. High Ave. at 3rd. that space resembles a freeway at rush hour. He might be wise to equip his sleigh with control jets or retrorockets so he and his reindeer can maneuver through the jam of fast-moving satellites and ‘‘space junk” orbited by man. The latest count shows there are 297 man-made objects racing through space at altitudes from IOO miles to several million miles. These are satellites, dead and alive; burned out rocket casings, and fragments of metal which have fallen off satellites or rockets. They are widely scattered and Santa should have little trouble weaving around them. But he’d better have his radar on the alert, for a cluster of 202 small fragments which are orbiting close together. They are the fallout from a U.S. Transit navigation satellite rocket which disintegrated in 1961. If Santa doesn’t want to become a pincushion, he’d detour around the band of Project West Ford space needles. These are 400 million hair-thin copper wires, called dipoles, launched in 1962 in a communications experiment. They are about 2,000 miles up and form a continuous north-to-south belt around the earth about five miles wide and 25 miles thick. The orbiting objects are what remain of more than 600 pieces of hardware — excluding the needles and Transit debris — shot into space by the United States and Soviet Union since Sputnik I was launched Oct. 4, 1957. Of the larger pieces still aloft, 259 belong to the United States, 38 to the U.S.S.R, Thirty of the American satellites still are beeping signals — transmitting weather pictures, communications signals, military information and a wealth of data on secrets of the universe. The Russians don’t say how many of their satellites are operating. They do say that their Zond-2 is beeping along toward Mars — as is the U.S. Mariner 4. The figures reflect the greater number of successful American space shots. Since the space age began, the United States has orbited 236 earth satellites, six solar satellites and hit the moon ! three times. The Soviets have launched 76 successful earth satellites, five sun vehicles and hit the moon once. The United States has sent six astronauts into space; the Soviets have orbited nine. Edward Franks Count Blessings Italy Bans Calves ROME (AP) — The Ministry of Health announced Wednesday a ban on the import of calves less than two weeks old. By Norm Singleton Dally Reporter Staff Writer XTothing special in the way of ^ a family gathering is being planned by Ed and Mary Fronk for the Christmas season. The unmarrieds will join the folks and 3 children at home. In Columbus, in the second Fronk homestead, other members of the closely-knit brood will pause to commemorate this anniversary of Christ’s birth with their own families. That’s why, when Ed sits down to Christmas dinner, he’ll have 25 good reasons for making petition to the Almighty. I Then, as a thousand - and - one memories flood the scene, he and Mary will silently and happily count the many blessings bestowed upon them. You don’t have to thumb through scrapbooks or newspa pers files to find them, although they’re there. The Fronks* 313 W. 13th St. residence, long a favorite rendezvous point for the many friends of their children, is filled with memoribilia. Atop the living room piano, 'standing as mute testimonials to their proud parenthood, are the graduation photographs of all — or almost all — the Fronk children. Three have yet to hurdle that pedestal. It’s gotten so that Ed and Mary have categorized the memories into “families.” Family No. I is represented by the septet of Ed, 32, Bob, 30, Dan, 28, Elaine, 27, Dale, 25, Paul, 23, and Dean, 21.
