Tlie financial bombshell was delivered by school board presi- dent Richard Eisnaugle to ap- proximately 180 teachers and other interested persons who packed the Portsmouth High School cafeteria Tuesday night. In view of the implications of the financial difficulties the board contends the school dis- trict will face in 1971, the fol- Brine Brown, fifl, of Carey's Run became Scioto County's 16th traffic fatality of the year after he was struck by a car at p.m. Tuesday on Route 52, six-tenths of a mile cast of Route 239. Patrolmen of the Portsmouth post of the Ohio Highway Pa- trol said Brown walked from the north side of the highway to !he centerline, hesitated and then walked soutli into the path of an easlbound car driven by 1970 Traffic Deaths Killed In Portsmouth 1 Killed In New Boston 11 Killed In County 16 Toli For Year Keep AJert Stay Alive Juaniia E. Elliott, 39. of 1032 21st St. Patrolmen said Brown rolled into the left side of a pick-up tnick parked on the south side of the highway in which George W. Gray, 21, of Portsmouth Rt. 5 was sitting. A Roger W. Davis Funeral Home ambulance brought Brown to Scioto Memorial Hos- pital at p.m., but he died 15 minutes later of multiple in- juries. Four persons were charged In five other accidents investi- gaicci by area police Tuesday. George Williams, 54. of Min- ford Rt. 2 complained of in- jury but was not treated after his auto struck and killed a cow owned by J. V. Van Meier of Piketon Rt. 1 at p.m. on Route Z'i, 5.9 miles north oi the Scioto County line, pa- lowing decisions have been made: The board will retain the 000 received from the distribu- tion of additional state school foundation funds authorized by House Bill 1023 to partially off- set the anticipated reduction in operating funds. The' board will use proceeds of the 5 mill additional levy, if it is approved by the voters in November, to make up the balance of the estimated reduc- tion in operating funds, Afler the reduction in the county budget commission's certificate for 1971 (compared with 1970) has been offset, the balance of the proceeds from the 5 mill levy are to be used to offset the inflationary in- creases in prices of fuel and many other supplies and ex- penses and also to assist school personnel in meeting the same inflationary increases in their living expenses. In a prepared statement, Eis- riaugle listed the following reasons for the anticipated re- duction in funds: The decline in the tax duplicate from 430 in 1969 to in 1970 will result in less income lo the schools from property taxes in 1971. State support is expected to be less due to a decrease in enrollment (362 students this year) which is based upon parti- ally reimbursable units of 30 students for each classroom This loss is expected to be near- ly A third reason given by the board is that there was a short- er beginning balance of for operational purposes in 1971. The statement also noted that while less money is anticipated, nosts have increased in many areas, such as supplies, capital expenditure items and texbooks a standard of 6 per cent increase each year. Coal bills are expected lo double this winter because of new mining regulations. Eisnaugle said the total pic- ture was evident at the time the renewal of 19.54 mills and the additional 5 mill levy were placed on the November ballot. He added that it also was not evident at the time the nego- tiations committee was meet- ing with the Portsmouth City Teachers Association relative to a bonus or supplementary sal- ary. "This situation has only be- come evident in the last several weeks due to legisative and financial procedures the schools in Ohio find themselves bound to in determining their financial position from year to lhe board president said.

By MIKE DRAKE Times Staff Writer A public hearing concerning the feasibility of one-way streets was the highlight of Tuesdav night's regular meeting of Uew Boston City Council. Jesse Newberry, Councilman at Large, told Council a recent survey of the residents of Pine. Spruce, Cedar, Oak, Maple and York Sis. showed an over- whelming majority wanted their streets one-way. Newberry add- ed rrost of the people wanted traffic to run toward the west. Ali-eri Bush, 4th Ward Coun- cilman, said Council suggested making Pine Si. eastbound. Spruce St. westbound and alter- nate the remaining streets through York St. Richard McAlister, 3751 Stan- ton Ave., suggested Council in- clude Stanton Ave. and Grace Sts. as one-way streets because of the dense population of chil- dren in the area. B u s h suggested to Council that Harrisonville Ave. be ex- cluded from consideration be- cause it is a state highway and Lakeview Ave. because fire trucks would have trouble get- ting in and out. of side streets if it were one-way. Paul Warren, owner of War- ren Funeral Horn? il04 Har- risonville Ave., said the streets in the area of his business should ce left as is. "Don't worry about the peo- ple in the outlying he told Council. "Worry about the taxpayers who live on these streets.' If change is necessary, War- ren suggested making Cedar St. westbound instead of east- bound because retaining walls obscure vision onto Lakevieu, Ave. Ralph Darling, 4258 Oak St., told Council he spoke for the residents of his street in back- ing the move to one-way traffic. "I fee! with the heavy traffic on the street, it must be one he said. ''I don't, care which way." In other action, Council ac copied the resignation of Gordor Carpenter as 3rd Ward Council- man effective Oct. 15 because he is leaving the city. The legis- lators received an application for appointment to the position from Archie Swearingen, 513 Harrisonville Ave. Council also enacted six pieces of legislation including two re- solutions approving the Garden Plaza Urban Renewal Project route to a Utah State game last Friday was making its maiden trip with the football team after having been parked in storage in Las Vegas, Nev., for three years, its owner said. The same plane veered off a runway and bent a propeller when a landing gear collapsed as it tried to take off from Okla- homa City to pick up the Wichi- ta State team for a flight to West Texas State the previous weekend, the FAA said. FAA spokesman James R. Greenwood said preliminary fig- ures showed the plane weighed an estimated pounds upon ils takeoff to climb the lowering Rockies after a refueling stop in Denver Friday. The maximum takeoff weight listed in specifi- cations for the Martin 404 plane is pounds. A spokesman for the National Transportation Safety Board, which is spearheading the probe, said the plane may have flown into a blind canyon, been unable to escape, and crashed into a rtdge at the foot of the Continental Divide, where a wall of mountains rises abrupt- ly. In a Denver hospital, co-pilot Ronald Skipper said the plane was flying a scenic sight-seeing route through the mountains. but declined to discuss the de- tails of the crash. Secretary of Transportation John A. Volpe said the Justice Department may be asked into the investigation. "The evidence we have to date suggests there may have been some Volpe said, but he refused to elabo- rate.
