Water Level In Great Lakes Region At Record Low
B> SEYMOUR M. HERSH
CHICAGO (AP) — Tho prosperous Great Lakes region, playland and workland of the Midwest, is suffering a multi-million-doUar thirst. Water levels are at record lows.
The lack of water, attributed to subnormal precipitation since IW). has boosted the cost of flipping, reduced property values, and killed off wildlife and fishing.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recently" added to the gloom when it predicted that water levels would continue to drop at least until 1945. The engineers said only Lake Superior will not be drastically affected.
Water levels dipped sharply this summer. Lakes Michigan
and Huron now have their lowest levels since records were started in I860, and Lakes Ontario and Erie levels are close to 30-year-old records.
The lakes, except for Superior. are at least one foot below normal 10-year averages. Lakes Michigan and Huron, which have been below records lows each month so far in 1964. are two feet, three inches of the 10-year average.
And although it isn’t readily observed at scenic Niagara Falls, the flow of the Niagara River has at times been running 20 per cent below normal.
The problems caused by lower water levels are painfully obvious to tourists and lakeside dwellers. Beaches are longer --often it’s a challenge to wade
into water deep enough for swimming — and docks and piers are exposed to rot and decay.
Receding shore lines have ruined thousands of acres that once were natural habitats for wildfowl. Game officials say the whole wildlife chain has been disrupted in the Great Lakes.
Higher rates have lost some shipping business.
Corn from Iowa and Illinois no longer is shipped on the Great Lakes. Now it is diverted to New Orleans and other Gulf of Mexico ports.
Albert J. Meserow of C hicago, head of the Great Lakes Commission. estimates the loss to shipping and recreational interests this year will total about HOO million.

J/ngineer Chuck Young gave us a note about a certain kind of vandalism involving county property. Seems that fishermen wanting to keep warm during the cooler hours of morning and night are breaking up weight signs for bridges and using it as kindling wood. That's tax money, fellows.
Note to the police in the area: That rumor about a Junior Ku Flux Flan being organized is not rumor. They even have hooded capes to wear and their leader, while he does not have too much upstairs, is the type who will try anything once.

Strasburg Area Man In Accident
An BD I. Strasburg man received emergency treatment at Union Hospital and was cited by Dover police for unsafe operation after his car crashed into a guardrail and 2 light posts on the Johnson Ave. tune on Route 8 at 1:10 a.m. today.
Police said Weldon Flynn, 29. told them ho lost control of his auto when he bent to pick up a lighted cigaret which had fallen to the floor. A section of the guardrail was damaged and the hghtposts were knocked loose. Fivnn received ear lacerations.
County Treasurer Victor Mar-tinelli, in Washington last week for a national county officials convention, said the first thing he and others were told when they checked in at the swank Sheraton-Park Hotel was: “Be careful. Don’t go out alone after dark: be sure everything is locked up tight in your car and room; stay out of certain neighborhoods. etc.”
The group learned fast. Within 5 hours, a whole batc h of refreshments had been stolen from a storage place, and while a large group was listening to a well-known newsman discuss President J. F. Kennedy’s assassination. someone stole the speaker’s projector and equipment set up in the section right off the banquet room.

UAW Notice On Strike Authorized
DETROIT (AP) — Notice has been served on the nation’s auto industry that a strike will be scheduled next week against General Motors, Ford or Chrysler if negotiations for a new labor contact remain stalemated.
United Auto Workers Union officials decided Thursday in Chicago to defer until next Wednesday at a spec ial 8 p.m. meeting in Detroit the question of whether to authorize a strike at one of the automotive industry’s Big Three.
“If the companies persist in their present offers, there will be a strike.” said CAW President Walter P. Reuther.
Reuther was referring to vir-tuallv-identical economic package proposals made last Monday by the auto companies.

One of the more familiar faces at the national Democratic convention which opens Monday in Atlantic City will be a member of the 122-man Ohio delegation.
He is Eugene (Cheese) Hanhart of Dover, who will be attending his seventh consecutive national convention. The Daily Reporter has made arrangements with Hanhart to report on backstage events and interesting items that go to make up a political convention.
In an interview yesterday, he predicted the presidential race is going to be a lot closer than
many people expect.
“The white back-lash is going to hurt the Democrats,” he added. “I am not one to count victory too early. Hard work and the constantly changing issues, I feel, will determine the outcome.”
llanhart can speak with some political authority. He was state chairman from 1948 to 1956 and served as Tuscarawas County chairman from 1936 to 1950.

NFO's Move Could Zoom Meat Prices
COLUMBUS. Ohio (AP) — Pocketbooks of the housewives in Ohio may begin to be hit soon as effects' of the National Farmers Organization holding action on livestock gathers steam.
This appeared evident today as the farmers’ group stepped up its efforts at organizing units in the various counties, and carrying pleas of support to all of the state’s livestock producers.
Bill Davis of Mount Sterling. an assistant national organizational director for the NFO, pointed out today that the holding action for livestock intended for markets is designed primarily to obtain contracts with the processors in order to stabilize prices in the future.
Davis declared that even if market prices soar, the organization will continue its holding actions until farmers get the assurance of-contracts with the processors. Once contracts are agreed upon. Davis said, the livestock producers will guarantee the supply.
Currently units of the NFO
are in 59 Ohio counties, with several more expected to be* ait ed soon. Davis said he had no idea now as to the total number of Ohio producers who are members of the NFO Producers tied up movement of livestock at a Marietta mar-See NFO. Page ll
“There will be no levy proposed at the November election to correct a possible $38,000 deficit in the New Philadelphia general fund for 1965,” Mayor joe Fritz said today.
“If the Council approves next Monday, there will be proposed levies directed for the city’s park and recreation program.”
Fritz’s remarks were made in reference to the County Budget Commission hearing on the 1965 budget yesterday.
County Auditor Donald R. Kinsey set the $38,000 deficit estimate on the proposed $873,686 budget. The largest part of the deficit would appear in the general fund where a total of $387,-545 was proposed in expenditures.
County Treasurer Victor Martinet said that revenues anticipated would amount to only about $337,000. This would mean a difference of $50,000.
However, a check of the proposed expenditures showed there was an overestimate of $12,000 with regard to street funds. This amount would reduce the deficit to approximately $38,000.
Prosecutor Gets Pota On Fatality For Grand Jury
State patrolmen have turned over to Prosecutor Harlan Spies information for possible Grand Jury action in Tuesday’s traffic death of Orville Taylor of 213 Welch St.. Dennison.
Officers report that Taylor was killed in his sports car after Bruce Wade, 38, of RD I, New Philadelphia, a truck driver. made a left turn in front of him. The crash occurred on Route 250-8, near Midvale.
It is not expected that a traffic citation will be issued against Wade prior to presentation of evidence to the September Grand Jury.
Af yesterday *s meeting, the
anticipated $14,000 deficit for the Street Department Fund was corrected to $10,000. when Kinsey informed the New' Philadelphia officials that they could anticipate $4,000 more in revenue.
Fritz, today said he disagreed with this anticipated deficit in the Street Department Fund. He checked the figures based upon the appropriation made in the beginning of the year and declared that the fund should end 1964 with a $10,000 surplus.
“This depends, of course, on whether we actually receive the money that was certified to us when we made the appropriation.” the mayor said.
In considering the possible $38,000 deficit for 1965, Fritz said he personally, and probably Council, would not cut the 5 per cent payroll increase for city employes which has been planned for 1965.
“We will simply wait to see how we end up this year, and if necessary, chop away at certain items in order to correct whatever deficit we face.” Fritz said. ♦‘but we won’t take this money away from the employes.”
With regard to the proposed levies in November for parks and recreation, which was ques-
Dover police received a call yesterday that a man was attempting to entice a small girl with candy on W. 3rd St. Police found the man, sitting on the curb with the girl on his lap, but no arrest was made—the little girl was his daughter.
The only other complaint received yesterday was of boys throwing apples at houses on F 9th st., but the boys could not be located.
tinned by Martinelli in yesterday’s hearing, the city officials said that a renewal of a .9-mill levy would be placed on the ballot plus an additional 1.1-mill levy. The renewal would actually not be necessary’ until the end of 1965 when it expires. The additional levy would become effective at the start of 1965.
Fritz explained that they were asking for the renewal at an early date in order to assure themselves of sufficient money See LEVIES. I»ag«* 2

BOSTON (AP) - Miss Rosemary O’Brien, red haired and blue eyed, sat across the dinner table in a Boston restaurant and said, “There’s nothing like a fine cigar,” as she put a panatela to her soft, full lips.
The reaction was immediate, but Miss O’Brien paid little attention.
“When you’ve been smoking cigars as I have for four years, you get accustomed to having other women look at you rn disbelief.” said Miss O’Brien.
“Strangely, women aren’t as shocked as the men when I smoke my cigars in public. The men appear to be absolutely
dumbfounded In public I constantly hear one man whisper to another ‘Do you see what I see?’ ”
Miss O’Brien, in her early 30s and a resident of Kenmore \\-enue, Chicago, came to Boston as an unwanted delegate to the fourth annual national convention of the Cigar Smokers of America, meeting today and Saturday.
The national organization — made up of humidors in eight cities — would rather not have women as members.
Miss O’Brien is in the unique position of having helped found the Chicago Humidor and ex
pand Un membership to more than 160.
“What’s wrong with women’.'” asked Miss O’Brien, who stands 5 feet 5 and says she measures 37-26-35.
“I smoke up to lo cigars a day and like to be with men who smoke cigars \ lot of women are now taking up cigar smoking."
Miss O’Brien says she started smoking cigars when she playfully took a puff of a cigar her date was smoking as they drove in a car.
“I enjoyed it,” she said. "and I’ve been smoking cigars since that light four years ago.”
County Board of Elections yesterday rejected a proposal for the nation’s 5 major news agencies to have certified representatives operating in each polling place in the county at the Nov. 3 election.
On July 27, Secretary of State Ted W. Brown contacted county Boards of Elections asking them to favorably consider the proposal.
Associated Press, United Press International, American Broadcasting (’n., Columbia Broadcasting System and National Broadcasting Co. and affiliate- had formed a “pool coverage.” to be known as the Network Flection Service, for the November balloting. Brown said.
“In making their request.” Brown wrote, “they have assured us that competent, properly certified representatives— usualh a person who lives in or near the precinct and is known to the precinct officials—will phone iii the results on the Pres. ident-vi.ee president and U.S. senator races to the nearest of 5 NFS substations ”
These representatives would be “waiting inside the polling place without interference in any operation of the election, until these results are available and then leave,” Brown further explained.
