CROWLEY NEW YORK (AP)—The nation—and much of the world— began paying a hero’s homage today to Douglas MacArthur, gallant old soldier who has faded away. The rugged heart of the 84-year-old general of the Army, which had kept beating through three grievous operations, was stilled at 2:39 p.m. EST Sunday at Walter Reed Army Hospital in Washington, D.C. Soon thereafter the body of the man who etched his name on so much history—St. Mihiel, Bataan, Corregidor, New Guinea, Manila, Tokyo and Inchon —began a historic funeral journey into a starlit night. The body was brought by motor hearse to this city—where he had lived in a hotel suite since coming home from the wars 13 years ago. Until Tuesday morning the body will be at the Universal Funeral Chapel. Then, from IO a m. Tuesday until IO p.m. it will lie in repose at the famous old 7th Regiment Armory on Park Avenue, a great brick building with battlements ' and towers, and filled with the trophies of many heroes. On Wednesday, the body will be returned by train to Washington. From 3:30 that afternoon until noon Thursday it will lie in state in the Capitol rotunda, where so recently the body of the martyred President John F. Kennedy also reposed. Then, by military plane it will be flown to the naval city of Norfolk, Va., for funeral services in St. Paul’s Episcopal church and burial in the MacArthur Memorial nearby. All along the funeral journey there will be the military pageantry reserved for the nation’s great. The general had expressed a wish to be buried in Norfolk, because there his mother, the former Mary Pinckney Hardy, was born, reared and married.

There are the famous crunched campaign hat, with its scrambled eggs insignia, and one of the corncob pipes that were his trademark. There, too, above the tomb that will receive him, is this inscription: “In twenty campaigns, on a hundred battlefields, around a thousand campfires, in long years of peace as well as war— a soldier who tried to do his duty as God gave him the light to see that duty.” Messages of sorrow at MacArthur^ passing—and praise for his exploits in World Wars I and II and the Korean “police action”—poured in from around the globe. One, from former President Harry S. Truman, recalled a great controversy with which historians will be wrestling for decades. Truman said Sunday night: “I am deeply sorry at the passing of Gen. Douglas MacArthur, who has given of himself with exceptional strength and valor and will be remembered as one of the great military men in our history.” On April ll, 1951, as the culmination of great differences in views on how to conduct the Korean War, Truman dismissed MacArthur from all his commands. The general wanted to carry See HERO’S, Page IO >• y >** , \,V Ip. ;.4, v A ’Via :^K : . fh Members of the wining Tuscarawas Valley one-act play cast and their coach, Ruth Mugridge, shown with the County Speech League trophy, are John Rohrer (left), Bill Finnicum, Connie Foster and Sherry Leonard. Road Hearings Are Continued Protests on points of law and right-of-way caused County Commissioners today to continue 2 road hearings until a later date. Action on the transfer of Crooked Run Road (County Road 52) Klancrest Addition to Dover Township’s road system was deferred to April 20. Residents appeared today to point out sections of law which they think put the responsibility for construction of a bridge over Crooked Run Creek on commissioners. The still unsettled question of right-of-way pertaining to a section of Franklin Township Road 424 has forced postponement of further hearings until June 8. The J. A. Jones Construction Co. and the T. Smith Gas Co. of Hartville have lodged pro tests against vacating the section of road. The commissioners explained that the section includes a bridge which is costly to maintain and that a new section of the road is being constructed in connection with new Interstate 77, which will remove the need of the old part. Pickets Back, Midvale Mine Is Idled Again I News • . Briefs WASHINGTON (AP)-The Supreme Court decided today Gov. Paul B. Johnson Jr., and former Gov. Ross R. Barnett of Mississippi are not entitled to a jury trial on criminal contempt charges. Both were charged with contempt of court for their actions in 1962 when James H. Meredith. Negro, sought to enroll at the University of Mississippi. Sheriff deputies were to be at Midvale Mine at 3 today—during a scheduled shift change-after receiving reports that more “sympathy” pickets from Belmont and Harrison counties were to be in the area. Chief Deputy John Barlock said 3 carloads of picketing miners were at Midvale this morning but only one was permitted out of the car. The lone picket, however, was enough to halt operations at the recently reopened mine. This morning’s shift had entered the washroom in preparation for going into the mine. Workers, however, obviously changed their minds and returned to their homes. Delmar Davis of Uhrichsville, president of Local 1496, United Mine Workers of America, reportedly was on his way to Bellaire to confer with Tommy Williams, business representative for District 6. According to Robert Rutledge, president of Midvale Coal Co., a contract has been signed with the union and, to his knowledge, none of the roving pickets are members of Local 1496. He said this morning that Williams had informed him the workers in the local should be on the job. The pickets reportedly are protesting a new contract nego-1 tiated last week in Washington i by their union leaders and soft coal operators. The pickets halted operations last Friday morning at Midvale Mine, but the afternoon shift worked after the 3 car loads of pickets departed. Train Kills Workers TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Two New York Central Railroad employes were killed Sunday when hit by a freight train on the NYC bridge over the Maumee River. Philo Man Found 'Not Guilty' Of Striking Boy, 9 New Philadelphia Mayor Joseph Pritz this morning found Kenneth Weller, 51, of 145 Park Ave. NW? not guilty of an assault and battery charge filed by Homer Decker of 130 2nd Dr. SE. Mayor Pritz said he was “not satisfied with the evidence.” Decker claimed Weller struck his 9-year-old son. Butcher Here Ends Own Life Carl John Lieser, 60, of 2403 N. Wooster Ave., Dover, was found dead this morning in the Eichel slaughter house on Do-ver-Zoar Hill Road, where he is a butcher. County Coroner Philip T. Doughten has not made a ruling on the death, but sheriff deputies said it was apparent he took his own life. Chief Deputy John Barlock said the man, who had just arrived for work, apparently shot himself and hanged himself with a rope at the same time. Barlock is holding the pistol, a 32-calibre single-shot weapon, that reportedly belonged to Lieser. Born at Parral, he was a son of the late Charles and Anna Streb Lieser.
