The Times Recorder (Newspaper) - June 12, 1974, Zanesville, Ohio County Plans Purchase Of Bridge Lifting System By ROBERT WOLF TR Staff Reporter County commissioners have decided to purchase a hydraulic lifting system for the Sixth Street Bridge, it was learned Tuesday. According to Dee Shook, president of the com- missioners, "we expect to officially ask a local firm in the near future to prepare designs for such a system which could lift the bridge sufficiently high so as to provide the required 26 feet clearance." Shook said that the com- missioners have already been informed the system will cost "in the with the county likely paying the full cost. In order to protect the system of electric motors which would operate the hydraulic pumps. Shook indicated the com- missioners were considering constructing a building in which the equipment would be stored and in which a person would be housed who could operate the system. "The system is really just what we need. After all, once it is installed we will be able to open and close the bridge within minutes and won't have to wait for a crane to get there and do the rob after several Shook said. Over 'a week ago a 30-ton crane was used to lift the bridge about five feet and, following some minor repairs -to the bridge. County Engineer Loren Camp said he was confident the crane could lift the bridge about eight feet. At normal water levels the bridge does not allow boats higher than seven feet to pass through when the draw span is closed. The county does not currently own a crane which is suf- ficiently large to lift the bridge Shook said it would "probably cost in the area of to for us to purchase a suitable crane and then there are all the problems which are created including the necessity of blocking traffic every time we wish to open the bridge." Shook added "the state has held us up trom doing anything to the bridge for a long time but now we are determined to get the job done However, Shook was not optimistic as far as prospects were concerned for lifting the Y-Bridge "There are many more problems as far as our being able to make the Y-Bridge operable. A hydraulic system may be impossible because of the difficulty in being able to lift the bridge straight up and down. Other methods have been suggested, but at this point we could not recommend, in good conscience, any of these Shook reported "The cost of the system for the Sixth Street Bridge is within the means of this count> Unfortunately, suggestions for the Y-Bndge generally are much more expensive Shook added Camp previously told The Times Recorder he was "reluctant to approve an> permanent, long term solution for either bridge until the arious suggestions are acted upon the necessary state agencies and the Coast Guard However Shook said Tuesdav he is "confident that at least the Coast Guard would be satisfied uith what we plan to do After an. mey have said that the> just want the bridges raised and don't really care how it is done The TR reported last Friday that Clyde Bryant of Riverside Airport road was planning to file suit m federal court at Columbus charging Camp with violation of and noncompliance with federal laws Under federal regulations, the Muskmgum River is now considered a navigable body of water That means that the river must be able to ac commodate boats which are 20 feet high Today's Chuckle A baby-sitter is not experienced until she knows which kids to sit with and which kids to sit on.

Ehrlichman's conspiracy trial indefinitely while the court tries to force Nixon to comply. U S District Judge Gerhard A Gesell said he would issues orders "very soon" on Wednesday enforce Ehrlichman's subpoenas for White House documents to defend himself in the Ellsberg breakin case He presumably could order Nixon to show cause why the subpoenaed materials should not be produced for the court's examination or why he should not be held in contempt last resort considered unlikely at this time Gesell said the trial of Ehrlichman's three remaining co-defendants would begin as scheduled Monday, but he had no choice, given Nixon's con- tinued "resistance to a lawful trial subpoena." other than to postpone Ehrlichman's case until the matter is settled. Ehrlichman is accused of conspiracy and perjury in connection with the Sept. 3, 1971, "plumbers" raid on the office of Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist's office after Ells- berg leaked the Pentagon Papers to the press.

The solitary deletion of funds was simply a bookkeeping correction proposed by Chair- man John C. Stennis of the Senate Armed Services Com- mittee who had discovered that million ui parts for the Trident submarine had already been approved in another bill. The weapons bill was passed on an 84-6 vote with all the nay votes from Democrats: James Abourezk, S.D., Dick Clark, Iowa, .1 William Fulbright, Ark, Harold Hughes. Iowa, Mike Mont., and Claiborne Pell, R.I. The administration had re- quested billion. The House cut that by million, but the Senate Armed Services Com- mittee reduced it by yet another billion. That dif- ference will have to be resolved in a conference between members of the House and Senate armed services com- mittees. Every attempt to trim weapons or expenses went down to defeat. But opponents of Vietnam military aid came closest, losing by only one vote Tuesday when Sen. Edward M. Ken- nedy, D-Mass., proposed cutting such aid from million to million. The one vote Kennedy could normally have counted on for victory belonged to Sen. Harold Hughes, D-Iowa, a longtime dove who argued the Armed Services Committee on which he sits had already cut the administration's request by million and that was enough Other proposed cuts that went down to defeat included amendments aimed at the Bl bomber, a new class of cruise missile submarine, more ac- curate warheads and two separate proposals to slash the number 01 troops overseas. Stennis and his committee suffered a few setbacks on the floor but they were generally on peripheral issues that have generated public attention but which don't go to the heart of defense policy. Senators, for example, for- bade the services to use dogs to test poisons, although other federal agencies will still be allowed to use the animals. The Senate also cut the number of servants that gener- als are allowed, forbade the Air Force to test fire Minuteman missiles over the Northwest, and ordered the Navy to stop using the Puerto Rican island of Culebra as a bombing range after 1975.

Starting Saturday, Jie international team will collect information about the "heat engine" or "weather factory" of tropical ocean water that largely determines the world's weather. The information, to be tabulated during the next three years, is expected to help provide two to three-week weather forecasts far more accurate than anything known today, with a consequent saving of untold billions of dollars every year around the world. The global heat engine's components are the tropical ocean waters. The sun's heat is stored in the upper layers of the oceans, transferred to the atmosphere by evaporation, shifted higher in cloud form by air currents and dispersed around the globe. The project is being called GATE, which is an acronym of an acronym. GATE stands for GARP (Global Atmospheric Research Program) Atlantic Tropical Experiment. There will be 40 ships in- volved, the largest interna- tional fleet ever assembled for scientific purposes, 13 research aircraft and United States and Soviet satellites. GATE extends from the eastern Indian Ocean, across tropical Africa and the Atlantic Ocean, over tropical South and Central America and into the easternmost Pacific Ocean. 'Leaks' On Wiretap Role Cited Kissinger Threatens To Quit In Dispute SALZBURG, Austria (UPI) Choked with emotion, Secretary of State Henry A Kissinger said Tuesday he will resign unless "leaks and m- nuendos" about his role in White House wiretapping are stopped and his honor upheld by a special Senate review But as statements of sympa- thy and support poured out from President Nixon and shocked U.S senators, a member of the House Judiciary Committee in Washington said the impeachment panel has "positive proof" that Kissinger, despite his denials, helped initiate a national security wiretap drive in 1969 Also in Washington, soon after Kissinger's emotion- charged news conference in Salzburg, the Senate Foreign Lawmaker Claims Proof WASHINGTON (UPI) A member of the House Judiciary Committee said Tuesday the panel had received "positive proof" that Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger, despite his denials, helped initiate a wiretap program in 1969. It was that allegation which caused Kissinger to threaten to resign at a news conference in Salzburg, Austria, Tuesday unless senators reviewed his role in the matter. Rep. Joshua Eilberg, D-Pa., said the evidence received by the House impeachment inquiry went beyond mere allegations about Kissinger's role. "There was positive proof." he told a group of reporters However Rep Don Edwards, D-Cahf, said it was "inac- curate" to say that the evidence proved Kissinger "or- dered" or "initiated" the 17 wiretaps of newsmen and government employes. "He did not order the taps." Edwards said. "It was done by (Alexander M who then was Kissinger's deputy in the National Security Council However, Kissinger supplied the names of the NSC employes whose phones subsequently were tapped, Edwards said. The orders to wiretap were not signed by Kissinger, he said. Kissinger's threat to resign surprised Congress. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted unanimously to accept his written request to reopen its investigation of his role in the wiretaps Kissinger had denied the allegations as recently as last Friday. Democrats and Republicans alike urged Kissinger not to resign Vice President Gerald R Ford said such a move would be "catastrophic." Even Eilberg urged Kissinger to stay on. Senate Republican Leader Hugh Scott said a Kissinger resignation would be a "trage- dy" and predicted the Senate Foreign Relations Committee review "will once again estab- lish the complete integrity of Secretary Kissinger." Relations committee voted unanimously to accept his suggestion and reopen its in- vestigation of his role in the wiretapping affair. But one powerful lawmaker after another of Arkansas, Mansfield of Mon- tana, Humphrey of Minnesota and more him, in Humphrey's phrase, to "stay with it, cool it" and stay in office Kissinger said the "innuen- dos" he was fighting had come from the House impeachment inquiry panel, and a member of that panel, Rep Joshua Eil- berg, D-Pa., told newsmen "there was positive proof" before the committee on Kissinger's direct role in the wiretapping "He or his assistant. Col. (Alexander M.) Haig, initiated wiretaps on employes of the National Security Co. White House employes and on news- papermen." With Nixon's blessing, Kiss- inger denied that. White House officials ap- peared stunned as they listened to Kissinger, his voice cracking with emotion and anger, lash out at "the impugning of my honor" in a hastily summoned news conference at an 18th "Century Inn. The secretary denied once again he had initiated or recommended the wiretapping of newsmen and White House aides in a 1971 national security drive, condemned recent re- ports to that effect as a per- sonal "defamation" and then drove home his anger in one blunt sentence: "If it is not cleared he said. "I will resign." Pressures Mar Trip SALZBURG, Austria (UPI) Pressures from the Watergate scandal marred the start of President Nixon's goodwill trip to the Middle East Tuesday when Secretary of State Henry A Kissinger threatened to resign unless his name is cleared Before the Kissinger explo- sion over persistent stones concerning his role in ordering wiretaps placed on the tele- phones of 17 newsmen and White House aides in 1970, Nixon rested m an 18th Century palace, met with the Austrian premier, and looked forward to a triumphant welcome in Cairo Wednesday morning Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, an admirer of both Nixon and Kissinger, repor- tedly has planned a big welcome complete with at least cheering Egyptians in a show of appreciation for the U.S. peace efforts in the Middle East mittee undertakes a full investi- gation to clear his name. Later in Washington, the committee agreed to review Kissinger's When Nixon left Washington role in the wiretaping case. Monday, White House aides announced to the press that they would entertain no re- quests for reaction to Water- gate developments while they were away from Washington. That resolution dissolved in the wake of two controversies during what was to have been a quiet day of recovery from the so-called jet-lag of fast travel through a number of different time zones. Kissinger, angered by con- tinuing queries as to his role in the wiretap scandal, called a news conference to announce that he would resign unless the Senate Foreign Relations Com- Nixon immediately leaped to Kissinger's side to declare that "The Secretary's honor needs no and shortly thereafter Kissinger left Salz- burg by automobile for a 10- mile drive across the border to the German village of Bad Reichenhall to meet with the new West German Foreign Minister Hans Dietrich Gen- scher. Press Secretary Ron Ziegler meanwhile denounced criticism by Sen. Henry Jackson, DWash., who said in Washington that the President should stay at home rather than travel abroad during the im- peachment investigation New Building Planned Servomation To Relocate Servomation Corporation plans to move its Zanesville district operations from 1434 Virginia street to a new square foot building to be erected soon west of Richards road near the Coca Cola complex, according to an announcement by Matthew Piatek, general manager of Servomation's Zanesville district, and Gene L MacDonald, executive director of the Zanesville Industrial Program. The new facilities will provide double the floor space of Servomation's present location where the firm has operated the past five years. Plans are being finalized for construction to begin within a month with occupancy set for early fall Piatek said that the new 100 foot by 100 foot building will serve as a sales office, warehouse and equipment servicing facility to meet customer needs for the rapidly growing food service business. Piatek said the Servomation Corporation philosophy is that a professional, quality food service program keeps customers happy and the new facilities will allow better service to present customers and increase ability to add new customers. Construction details will be announced within two weeks. Servomation will be situated on three acres of ground fronting on Richards road with access from both Richards road and Kemper Court, the new county access road installed for the Mid Atlantic Canners Association plant now being constructed and the announced plant for National Can Cor- poration. The property was part of the Downing Company development of 45 acres. Piatek said that zip's work in attracting the Mid Atlantic Canners Association and National Can Corporation plants to the Richards road property and the current installation of sewer, water, electrical, gas and access road facilities made the location highly desirable for Ser- vomation. MacDonald pointed out that the former Mosaic Tile space served as a location for Servomation to expand in 1970 and to develop sufficient business to justify building a new facility. The' 5000 square foot space to be vacated by Servomation will be available for another tenant and ZIP and the Zanesville Area Chamber of Commerce will be attempting to get the area utilized soon in conjunction with the Mosaic property owners, Zanesville Industrial Properties. Butch Cassidy Death Disputed By Sister LOGAN, Utah (UPI) Butch Cassidy's sister says the leader of the Wild Bunch was a "good boy who got off on the wrong foot" she can never forgive him for the way he treated his parents Mrs. Lula Parker Betenson, 90, also said her brother wasn't killed with the Sundance Kid in South claim disput- ed by William C.

Patch Up Row BONN, Germany (UPI) The nine-nation European Com- mon Market and the United States agreed Tuesday that they have patched up last winter's row and developed a more flexible and pragmatic relationship. "I think the European- American dialogue is making good Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger said during a joint news conference with German Foreign Minister Hans-Dietrich Genscher. The two men met for two hours .11 the Bavarian Alpine health resort of Bad Reichen- hall, after v Genscher presided over a two-day session of the Common Market foreign minis- ters in Bonn on political cooperation. Before leaving Bonn, Gensch- er told reporters he and his European colleagues had agreed "to seek flexible and pragmatic relations with Wa- shington." He reported the same to Kissinger, who commented afterwards that he has ob- served "a change in the spirit and attitude" of European consultation with the United Stales since the controversy last winter over handling of the Middle East crisis. "But the major problem is substance, not Kissinger went on. Genscher and the other eight Europeans ministers meeting in Bonn approved plans for opening a dialogue with 20 Arab states on economic, technical and cultural cooperation cooperation the Europeans hope will assure them a supply of vital Arab oil. Genscher said Kissinger's peace-making mission to the Middle East had improved the climate for the European-Arab contacts. "We have no reservations about economic and technical cooperation between Europe and the Kissinger said. "We have expressed some reservations about 20 Arab foreign ministers meeting with nine European foreign minis- ters without a very clear agenda A European-Arab foreign ministers meeting is the even- tual aim of the dialogue now to be opened, but is unlikely to take place before sometime next year, Genscher said earlier in Bonn of a new Outlaw and Lawman library at Utah State Univer- sity "Butch was a good boy who got off on the wrong said Mrs. Betenson, of Circleville, Utah "The only thing I hold against him is that he hurt my parents so much. He broke my mother's heart." "But I'll tell you Mrs. Betenson added "Butch wasn't killed in South America He came back to this country and lived a good many years However, Linn said the Pinkerton file on Robert Leroy Parker, alias Butch Cassidy, ends with the "sworn statement of many eye witnesses who saw the bodies." Linn said Parker and Harry Longabaugh, also known as the Sundance Kid, were shot by the Bolivian Army in 1911. "I have talked to a lot of people who claim Butch re- turned to the United States, but I have never been able to pin down any solid Linn said But 80-year-old "Cowboy Joe" Marstcrs, who claims he rode with the Wild Bunch at lin- age of 14, said he saw Cassidy at the San Francisco World's Fair in 1915 Democrats Rap Nixon Economics WASHINGTON (UPI) The Congressional Democratic lead- ership Tuesday renewed its attack on President Nixon's economic policies and a former White House economist urged a new form of wage and price controls. Speaker Carl Albert criticized the administration's "policy of doing nothing at all while the economy sinks slowly into deep recession" and said House Democratic leaders will consult with economists in coming weeks on how to combat inflation and boost employment The first of those economists, Walter Heller, chairman of the Economic Advisory Council under the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, told House leaders Tuesday that wage-price controls must be renewed while taxes on low income groups must be cut and tax "loopholes" of the wealthy closed." The House Ways and Means Committee meanwhile con- tinued drafting a tax reform bill and plans were made for a possible Senate vote Monday on another revenue reform mea- sure Jackson also said that Kiss- inger had brought "some stability to the Middle East and the President is screwing it up." Ziegler said Jackson repre- sented a minority view of the President's trip, and that many senators disagree. Before the eruptions, Nixon met for nearly two hours with Austrian Chancellor Bruno Kreisky about East-West rela- tions generally and about the Middle East and the Soviet Union specifically. Kreisky visited both earlier this year. The President's party was scheduled for an early-morning departure for Cairo Wed- nesday. He planned a private meeting with Sadat at Qubba palace in Cairo Wednesday afternoon. Moscow, Sadat Eye Summit By United Press International Egyptian. Foreign Minister Ismail Fahmi will visit Moscow soon to arrange a summit- meeting between President Anwar Sadat and the Soviet leaders, a Cairo government spokesman said Tuesday. The announcement was made on the eve of President Nixon's" arrival for a three-day visit. It followed speculation that one of the Soviet leaders, possibly Communist party Secretary General Leonid I. Brezhnev, might visit Cairo to "counter- balance" the Nixon visit. In Israel, preparations for Nixon's visit this weekend overshadowed the disengage- ment process on the Israeli- Syrian front. No official pro- gram has been announced but the newspaper Haaretz said Nixon would visit the sites holy to the three major religions in Jerusalem. These are the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Dome of the Rock, and the Wailing Wall, sites held holy by Christians, Moslems and Jews, respec- tively. The process of military disengagement on the Golan Heights was reported proceed- ing smoothly. Israeli troops blew up mines on their side of the cease-fire line and Syrian forces were observed doing the same on their side, the Israeli national radio said. These steps were in prepara- tion for Friday's scheduled handover of the southernmost quadrant of Israel's forward bulge in Syria, occupied since the October war. Egyptian Information Minis- ter Kamal Abul Magd told newsmen in Cairo Fahmi an- nounced his Moscow travel plans at a cabinet meeting presided over by First Deputy Premier Abdel Aziz lligazi.
