James Rhodes “calling the moves” for 284 participants. It was the Chamber of Commerce’s “Industrial Appreciation’’ banquet and jubiliant celebration of 2 new industries setting up business here within the last few months. Industry was exalted in a major address by Rhodes, who cited more jobs as the vaccine for most of Ohio’s social and economic ills. He was backed up by Barton Holl, president of the Ohio Chamber of Commerce, Richard Corner, president of Groovfold Inc., and Harold Etling, president of Weather-Seal Inc. (the new industries to locate here) and Howard Caldwell, president of the Newcomerstown Chamber.

Wooster Ave. on April 22. Judge Charles Eckert said the first jury trial to be heard will be one involving Willard L. Blair of 920 N. Wooster Ave., Dover, charged with driving while under the influence of alcohol. Another trial on a DWI charge against Paul A. Lampe of RD I, Beach City, will follow. The court’s present location at 233 W. 2nd St. in Dover has made it virtually impossible to hold such trials. The new quarters, however, will include a courtroom capable of seating at least 80 persons. The offices, now being remodeled to Judge Eckert’s specifications, are located in the Manner Building which also houses the Frozen Food Locker Co. operated by Walter Manner Jr. The 2 offices will feature natural wood walls, fluorescent lighting, electronic air purifiers, acoustical ceilings, gas heat and air conditioning. Judge Eckert will have a 14 x 16 office for handling traffic and minor civil cases. His secretary, Virginia Ross, also will have an office. Miss Ross announced today that Northern District Court will not be open April 22 because of the work involved in moving.

They cheered and applauded unproductive loudly as they heard the terms state goes up, the productive fied spirit to continue the growth. The governor recounted the economic erosion he inherited in 1963, charging that the number on Ohio’s relief rolls was the highest in the United States, with less jobs than in 1957. “We are attempting to build a climate for industrial growth land expansion in Ohio, thereby ending the perpetuation of relief areas.” The major step, Rhodes added, is to ease the burden of the community, county and state’s largest taxpayer — industry. He said that the $83-milIion deficit inherited in 1963 would be reduced to $13-million by July I and that the state would be in the black by Jan. I, 1965, —without a tax increase. Warming to his major concern. attracting new industry to Ohio and expanding the state’s present ones, Rhodes described the economic principal behind his efforts — when the segment of the segment goes down and taxes go up to keep the unproductive.

(AP) —The United States today moved confidently ahead on its second manned space program. Gemini, following the success of the first unmanned flight. A Titan 2 rocket propelled a two-seat Gemini spacecraft into orbit in an almost perfect launching. The rocket lifted oil only one second behind schedule, but a launching official claimed the range clock must have been wrong because the countdown was completed without even a one second delay. Project Director Charles Mathews    of    the Manned Spacecraft Center said the flight gave the Gemini team confidence to proceed toward a second unmanned flight and a manned orbital trip this year. The second flight, set for lute August or early September, is to hurl a spacecraft on a ballistic flight to test all systems, atmospheric re-entry and recovery. The first manned mission calls for two astronauts to ride Wirtz indicated President Johnson, who called for the emergency talks, is gravely worried that a crippling rail strike could seriously damage the nation’s entire economy. “The ability or failure to reach agreement will determine whether there is or is not a major disruption in the nations advance,” Wirtz said. Wirtz earlier had announced he would hold the union and management negotiators in continuous sessions hut a snag developed when two union presidents were unable to arrive here in time for the hastily called conference.
