"Why should the village (Dennison) go in debt for $95,000,” Huston asked. "It is the attitude of the people here that they will not take on such an obligation.”
He pointed out that with the exception of monthly bills, Dennison is free of debt. Other exceptions he noted were sewage, water and school facilities. "They do not involve this (Village bills) and are paid by the users.”
Huston also maintains Uhrichsville owes the Twin City Water Board $6,689 for fire hydrants. He said Dennison is paid up to date.

Police Crack Numbers Ring In Cincinnati
CINCINNATI (AP) - Po’ice have cracked a $750,000-a-year numbers racket ring they described as the largest and most successful in Cincinnati police history.
Four men and one woman were arrested in vice raids Thursday that capped a six months investigation by detectives Paul Allen and Handy Matthews of the vice squad.
Arrested were Lacy Calloway, 42; Harry Tayler, 39. and Mrs. Mattie Mapp, 26, all charged with promoting games of chance and Richard Holmes, 43, and Ellis Richardson, 41, on charges of possession of numbers slips. Holmes also was charged with transporting numbers slips and his automobile was confiscated.
Calloway, pajama-clad, raced through a second-floor window, over a porch rail and into the arms of a detective after police broke into his apartment.
Police said his $l,500-a-day operation was the largest of the three gambling centers closed.
Tyler had a $1.000-a-day operation going, police said, and Mrs. Mapp’s daily intake was estimated at $500-a-day.
Police seized Richardson when he entered Calloway’s apartment during a raid, and Holmes was picked up in his auto.
Calloway told police his was an independent operation, and quoted him as saying: "I'm
guilty, I’m just going to throw myself on the mercy of the judge.”
Police had to break down doors to gain entrance to all three of the gambling places, and while there received several phone calls from persons wanting to make bets.

Common Pleas Judge J. II. Lamneck today ordered an alternative writ of mandamus to be issued aeainst the County Board of Elections members and clerks, requiring them to show cause by 9 a.m. Monday why the ballot on the annexation of Dennison to Uhrichsville should not be withheld from the May primary.
Lamneck’s order followed a petition filed yesterday by Dennison Mayor Donald G. Huston, acting as a private citizen through his attorney, Arthur Lirpbaugh.
Huston, ?s mayor, already had filed a protest against the annexation ballot with Secretary of State Ted W. Brown’s office. Solicitor Dannv Johnson prepared that protest.
Brown, in reply to that letter, advised the Board of Elections that the annexation issue must be placed on the May 5 Primary ballot. Brown earlier pointed out any opposition to the ballot would have to be filed in a court of law’.
Huston, in the petition filed yesterday, maintains the question of annexation cannot be legally submitted to Dennison voters in May. He also claims that many absentee voters, includ-See COURT, Page 2
have been holding off on that 1-mill levy, hoping the annexation will go through and our people could have some of their debts.”
Huston also contends that, under the system proposed for the annexation, it would cost an additional $10,000 to $15,000 for the city payroll. He says Dennison now' operates without a service or safety director. Un-

Annexation Key For Salvation'
By Larry Froeltch
Daily Reporter Staff Writer
DENNISON—It has been said that man cannot do today’s job with yesterdays’ methods and be in business tomorrow, and herein lies the purpose of the efforts of Don Coventry and James Aldergate in the' drive for annexation of Dennison to Uhrichsville at the May 5 primary.
Coventry, chairman of the Citizen’s Project Council, claims it is impossible to promote industry in the Twin City area without the cooperation of the 2 town governments. "Until we can get one big unit, these 2 towns are lost with regard to attracting new industry,” he i added.
However, Coventry does admit that neither he nor anyone else can guarantee new industry as a result of annexation. "My contention is that w'e will have a better form of government, and industry-wise we willl have a more favorable atmosphere,” he said.
For the last several decades industry has been leaving the Twin Cities. This is especially true of the clay plants and more recently the Pennsylvania Railroad, which has seen fit to reorganize, affecting 250 em-I ployes.
But, why is industry so important? As both men pointed out, one only has to look at the amount of unemployment
already present and then think of his own family.
"There is nothing here for my kids,” Coventry explained. "They are leaving us because there are no jobs, or business opportunities and who can blame them?”
Aldergate, chairman of the
Annexation Committee, produced the following population statistics for Dennison and Uhrichsville: In J 920 Dennison had a population of 5,524; in 1940 it had 4,413, and in 1960 only 4,158. In Uhrichsville, the 1920 population was 6,428; in
