Dover Times Reporter (Newspaper) - September 12, 1968, Dover, Ohio Humphrey 'Guns' on GOP Opponent ON THE inside Nixon Seeks to 'Quiet' His Mate By CARL P. LEUBSDORI Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Hubert H. Humphrey, turning his attention more and more to his Republican opponent for the presidency, says Richard M. Nixon “needs to be touched up a bit.” “He doesn’t look good with angelic wings,” the vice president told reporters Wednesday night as he arrived home from a three-day cross-country campaign swing in which he faced slim crowds, heckling and snubs by top Democrats'. Humphrey, who goes today to Delaware and New Jersey, pronounced the trip a success, saying “it was primarily a way to get out around the country to see a lot of groups we wanted to contact.” The last of the three days took Humphrey from Houston to New Orleans to Flint, Mich., and was marked by increasingly strong attacks on Nixon. He even suggested that antiwar demonstrators, who tried to drown out his speech in a Flint shopping center with chants of “No More War,” should turn their attention to Nixon and third-party candidate George C. Wallace. He hit congressional Republicans hard, accusing them of blocking various legislative advances. The Nixon-Agnew -S t r o rn Thurmond Republicans in Congress wouldn’t have given your elderly Americans medicare, and you know it,” he said. Humphrey’s voice sounded hoarse as he shouted to be heard above the chants of both critics and supporters. At every stop, Humphrey challenged Nixon to take a stand on the nuclear nonproliferation treaty and the nomination of Abe Fort as as chief justice. ★ “This country doesn’t need a wiggler and a wobbler,” he said of the GOP nominee in a Houston television interview, “it needs a leader.” Humphrey aides said the vice president feels he has good issues in the treaty and the Facias nomination an-! hopes to smoke Nixon out on them. They also said, in interviews on the campaign plane, the first week’s trip has helped bridge major gaps in the party. Muon of this, they said, has resulted from a series of sharp exchanges between students and See HUMPHREY, Page 2 Court Records Hot Line ..... Hospital News Obituaries Sports ........

MEARS Associated Press Writer NKW ORLEANS, La. (AP) -Richard M. Nixon said today the United States should translate the concern generated by the Soviet-led invasion of Czechoslovakia into a campaign to re-vitalize the Western military and and diplomatic alliance. “America should seize upon this moment of European awareness and European concern to reforge the ties that bind the Western world,” I hi? Republican presidential nominee declared. While Nixon talked of international affairs, a top political adviser reported a quiet effort to tone down any lough political tactics of his vice presidential nominee, Spiro T. Agnew. This source, who asked that his name not be used, expressed concern about harshly worded Agnew assaults on Vice President Hubert IL Humphrey, the Democratic presidential nominee, and said Nixon shared that concern. “We’re trying to do something about it,” the source said Agnew, the Maryland governor, leveled his toughest attack on Humphrey in Washington tuesday, characterizing the vice president as “soft on inflation, soft on communism and soft on law and order over the years.” The Nixon campaign associate said there was concern in the camp of the White House nominee that such attacks might backfire and arouse sympathy for Humphrey. ★ But at the same time, a Nixon spokesman accused Humphrey of “an inexcusable plunge into political demagogy” for his suggestion that the United States might begin withdrawing troops from Vietnam by early next year. “The hopes and fears of those with fathers and sons and brothers in Vietnam must not be played upon for partisan advantage,” said Robert Ellsworth, Nixon’s national political director. Nixon’s discussion of the Western alliance came in a speech prepared for the American Legion national convention. “The same Soviet tanks that rumbled across the Czechoslovakian frontier less than a month ago also startled a slumbering Western alliance oui of its complacency,” Nixon said. He said it has been “in large See NIXON, Page 2 wm Ohio Forecast Clearing tonight with the low In the 40s and 50s. Fair and not is cool tomorrow. See full weather details on Page ll.

CORNELL AP Religion Writer NEW YORK (AP) — Bishops of the Roman Catholic Church around the world are taking varied positions ranging from firm crackdowns to toleration toward the widespread opposition to Pope Paul’s encyclical barring contraception. Generally, both in this conn try and abroad, the predominant tendency seemed to be to leave the door open to dissent. In scattered cases, in Austra Ha, Ireland, Great Britain and the United States, some priests were reported suspended from priestly functions or removed from their posts for challenging the encyclical. A showdown over the issue appeared to be building up in this country between Patrick Cardinal O’Boyle of Washington, D C., who has indicated he may act against 52 priests unless they repudiate their dissent In a letter to archdiocesan priests and aimed at all Catholics in the jurisdiction, Cardinal O’Boyle said Wednesday that dissent from the encyclical is “erroneous, scandalous and offensive to faithful Catholics.” A Tie said acceptance of the pa pal ruling represents trueifreedom of conscience in that “we See PILL BAN, Page 2 Enemy Ambushes U.S. Convoy; Pulls Back FINALE.

The fighting was reported on the southwestern and southeastern edges of the city as 2,000 South Vietnamese paratroopers and marines swept through areas that Viet Cong and North Vietnamese infiltrators had occupied Wednesday. South Vietnamese military headquarters in Saigon said: “The situation is now calm in Tay Ninh City... There is no major fighting.” Enemy troops opened up with small arms on a convoy from the U.S. 25th Infantry Division six miles to the south along route 22, the major highway leading from Tay Ninh to Saigon, 45 miles to the southeast. The Americans returned the fire with machine guns atop armored personnel carriers. Fourteen enemy soldiers and one American were reported killed in the brief fight.

J Cable TV Finn In Merger Plans Merger of Tower Antennas Inc., cable television firm which had a modest beginning at Sugarcreek in 1952, and Citizens Financial Corp. of Cleveland, a diversified financial services holding company, is in process. An agreement in principal has been reached, according to Claude M. Stevanus, president of Tower Antennas, and James P. Cozzens, president of Citizens Financial. The merger is subject to approval by stockholders of both firms, Satisfactory complete of agreements and approval of regulatory bodies.

In addition, Citizens will exchange 1.35 shares of its common stock for each share of Tower common stock. Both have been traded over-the-counter. No change in management or operation of Tower is planned. After the merger it would be operated as a subsidiary of Citizens. Its present subsidiaries an* Citizens Savings and Loan of Painesville, Almour Securities Inc., Newark Trust Co., Central States Financial Corp. and Champion Service Corp. Tower Antenna came into being because Stevanus and other businessmen in Sugarcreek and Stinesville (which was consolidated with Sugarcreek last year) became dissatisfied with “snowy” TV reception and initiated the cable service for that community. The operation was based in the backroom of a Stinesville hardware store. The firm’s operation finally began to mushroom and today it serves approximately 30,000 subscribers in 19 communities in Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. In 1966 Tower, with main offices in Coshocton, purchased the local TV Antenna System and currently is developing 12-channel service for New Philadelphia, Dover, Uhrichsville and Dennison. Earlier this year it acquired Newcomerstown TV Cable, which had 1000 subscribers, and Aug. J purchased Clever Cable Co. in Gnadenhutten.

Phila Councilmen Given Financial Facts of Levy By PETE GRI HI County Treasurer Victor Mar-tinelli turned New’ Philadelphia city council chambers into a classroom last night for the benefit of councilmen who were not sure a 2.5 mill renewal levy on the Nov. 5 ballot would produce sufficient revenue. After the hour-long short course on taxation, millage and valuations, they decided no additional money would be requested. The renewal resolution, ap proved 3 weeks ago, already has been filed with the board of elections. However, not knowing what affect 3-tenths mill cut on that levy by the county budget commission might have, Martinelli was ask'*d to make lits presen tation during the special session. Martinelli predicted the city would receive $400,000 for 1969 operations, compared with tho $360,000 the city is receiving this year. He explained the 3-lenths mill cut was the result of the new reappraisal, pointing out that Ohio law requires the budget commission to reduce millage in proportion to new valuations so that no additional tax dollars are reduced by a subdivision for that reason. No cuts art made, however, for new construction work and because of increased valuations due to annexations. The $t0,000 revenue hike, Martinelli said, is predicated partially on the city valuation See LEVY, Page I ;
