Mrs. Mock found herself short of words to express her reaction to the reception. “I should get my autopilot here to talk for me,” she said. Visibly tired, Mrs. Mock, 38, seemed to hesitate a bit before proclaiming her trip “wonderful.” She added, “I didn’t get much sleep or food or anything.” Thousands of spectators crushed toward a flag-draped platform as state and city officials offered congratulations. A telegram from President Johnson was read over the loudspeaker system. Mayor Maynard Sensenbrenner made the proclamation formally designating Jerrie Mock Day. Also on hand were Gov. James A.

The doctors agreed to meet w'ith government officials next Wednesday in an attempt to settle their differences over the controversial legislation. Belgium’s medical profession agreed to call off the strike after 5(4 hours of intensive negotiations during which the rectors of Belgium’s four universities acted as intermediaries. Afterwards Premier Theo Le-fevre said confidently that “conditions now are ripe to reach a prompt agreement on the law which would leave no bitterness.” Lefevre called on his countrymen—doctors and patients—“to heal the wounds of this conflict.” The government is under strong pressure from Belgium’s labor unions to resist major m- ON THE I N S I D E I .....W.V.. ...

The doctors fear their offices will be flooded with cranks imagining ailments. They say this would force them to practice “chain medicine”—quickly examining patients in a production line. They also contend hospital facilities w'ould become overcrowded and complain of the considerable bookkeeping they would have to do under the health insurance plan. They also say the set fees are too low. Labor leaders say the doctors really are worried about a loss of income and additional taxes. Lefevre’s government concedes the doctors may have a legitimate fear in anticipating a flood of patients, but the Cabinet has asked them to let the plan function for a year of trial.

Immm An unidentified woman appeared at the Dover police station last night, complaining that her husband had taken her glasses and refused to return them. Her husband was contacted and he stated that he had paid for the glasses and would return them to her after she paid him. Police also stated that a truck tire and rim were discovered in a City rubbish can. The owner can pick up tile items at the •taboo. Confusion? Yes! Chaos? No! Success? Yes! Perhaps it was the theme, “Partners With A Purpose,” but students, teachers and parents agreed yesterday's Eastern Ohio District PTA conference at Dover High came off extremely well. In fact, there was less confusion than anticipated under the circumstances. Some high school classes had to be switched to make room for the conferences. There also were some changes in student lunch periods, because 512 visitors also were fed in the cafeteria, and visiting groups ran into pupil groups in corridors. Those served in the cafeteria, including students, doubled the number normally served there. Then, too, the PTA meal was different than the student menu. “It was a challenge,” remarked Mrs. Mary Klar, head dietician who planned and prepared the meal with the aid of 6 mem bers of her staff and an extra helper. All the visitors were served within 45 minutes. “I’m amazed at the student body’s cooperation,” remarked librarian Catherine Futhey. “The conference presented a fine opportunity for Dover High to display its fine facilities and to give members of other communities a chance to see an orderly student body,” commented Clifford Schrader, a chemistry teacher. “It certainly was See ITA CONFERENCE.
