Nelson continued that “the state’s share of money is all available for construction of Interstate 77 due to the $500-mil-lion bond issue.” The federal government pays 90 per cent of the cost. According to highway officials, two IS 77 projects in the northern section of Tuscarawas County are set for sale in early 1965, while other sections are programmed for fiscal 1967 — forces in South Viet Nam. The long-debated issue of whether air strikes should be ordered against Communist including an interchange with supply lines through Laos or---------- supply bases in North Viet Nam was reported up for discussion and possible decision. Taylor, U.S. envoy to Saigon, has been conferring with Secretary of State Dean Rusk, Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara and other policy makers since Thanksgiving and these officials presumably had recommendations ready for the President in advance of the White House session. OOO. The second section stretches from County Road 111 to and Election Vote In Ohio Falls Shy Of Record Budget Parings To Assist Phila Employe Pay Hike Some 2 hours of rather confused discussion last night left New Philadelphia Council members certain city employes should get substantial pay raises, but uncertain as to how to obtain money for them. They agreed to let Mayor Joe Pritz work on the 1965 budget until the Dec. 14 meeting in an effort to work the salary increases into a budget that will find the General Fund already operating at a 1964 deficit of more than $14,000. Pritz estimated the pay hike would cost the city $42,600. Most of the city workers would get $50 more per month ($600 per year). Street department employes, at 25 cents per hour, would realize $47.67 more a month. Of the $42,600 total, Pritz noted that $11,400 would come separately from the revenue of the water and sewer service departments for the workers there. The balance of $31,200 must come from the general fund (with $5,400 going to the street employes, and $25,800 to the rest of the city workers). These pay raises affect 71 city employes, including police and firemen and school-crossing guards. The mayor advised an adjustment also had to be made for workers at the sewage disposal plant, who put in a 48-hour work week as compared with the 44 hours of other city employes. Pritz announced the County Budget Commission yesterday certified $393,283 as estimated tax revenue for New Philadelphia in 1965. This comprises $253,260 in general property tax, $15,000 from classified property tax and $125,033 from other sources. The estimated city budget See PHILA PAY, Page 13 Dover Board Lets Various Contracts Sale of the Strasburg to the Stark County line section of Interstate 77 is scheduled in February or March. The 2-part project will have an interchange with Route 212 southeast of Bolivar.

The judge also ordered that he get a job and spend at least 3 hours a week, under observed instruction, in study to copy with his life’s problems. The threat to Underwood was alluded to by Prosecutor Harlan Spies, who told the court he could recommend leniency for the man only if Crow would give the court assurance he intended no reprisal against the recorder. On questioning by Rice, Crow said the incident occurred on the stairs leading down from the Central District Court after U.N. Awaiting Reactions To Soviet Verdict UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) — The United Nations awaited U.S. reaction today to a Soviet proposal to postpone briefly the showdown in the General Assembly over the Soviet Union’s refusal to pay for U.N. peacekeeping operations. Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko proposed that the opening meeting of the assembly’s 1964 session this afternoon confine itself to routine actions by acclamation. These would Meeting Monday afternoon, Dover’s City Board of Control awarded contracts for the purchase of 3 police cruisers, salt for ice control, garbage collection, and spaced aerial cables. Fred P. Potschner Ford was awarded the cruiser contract on its $3,020 bid, which includes tradein allowances for three 1964 Ford sedans currently being utilized by the Police Department. Also bidding was Mart Sand Pontiac. An approximate savings of $487 will be realized on the salt contract, awarded to International Salt Co. of Clarks Summit, Pa. All bids on salt — also made by Morton Salt Co. of Wadsworth and Diamond Crystal Salt Co. of St. Clair, Mich. — were $11.40 per ton delivered to Dover or $7.40 per ton fob. Service Director H. S.

Using the Bazzoli bid and International’s plant price, delivery cost to the city will be $9.90 per ton or $1.50 per ton less than if International had delivered it. The city uses approximately 325 tons of salt in a year. Last year’s salt contract with Morton cost the city $3,600, including trucking. The current garbage collection agency, Richard Buss Trucking of Stone Creek, was the lone bidder for that contract. He was awarded it on a bid of $17,100 per year for 1965 and $18,100 per year for 1966. Price difference between the 2 years is explained by the fact there is an annual increase of residences served in the city. William Hillwig, consulting electrical engineer from Glaus, Pyle and Schomer, explained to the board the bid made by Olin Conductors Co. of Chattanooga, Tenn. for spaced aerial cable. He considered the bid fair and recommended its acceptance. Olin’s bid was $149 per 1,000 feet of single conductor for an estimated 5,210 circuit feet of 4-strand AWG or 16,410 single conductor feet; and $217 per 1,-000 feet of single conductor for an estimated 3,800-circuit feet of 336.4 MCM or 11,970 single conductor. The firm promised delivery within 60 days from receipt of contract. New Bolivar Rubber Plant Is Underway BOLIVAR -- Since the latter part of July, local residents have been curious about a new industry here, the Bolivar Rubber Co. Located on the site of the former Bolivar Clay Products Co. plant, which was operated by Rust Engineering Co. of Pittsburgh, publicity on the new plant has been “nil.” According to Plant Manager John O’Brien, the company has steered away from any publicity “because operations are still on a small basis.” Presently, Bolivar Rubber operates one refining mill for the purpose of improving butyl rubber. No products are being produced at the present time. The non-affiliated firm has IO men employed and plans to expand in the near future. 99 Oil, Gas Leases Filed George R.

Polilli Jr. of 418 Crater Ave. He was cited by Dover police last night at 9:25 after the fol-< lowing sequence of events: Polilli, driving south on S. Wooster Ave., crossed the Wooster Ave. bridge on the inside lane of traffic. According to police, approximately 150 feet from the Broadway intersection, Polilli passed an automobile on the right, then passed another on the left while traversing the intersection. The youth then drove into the curb lane of traffic, continuing south at a high rate of speed. When Polilli reached Iron Ave. he brought his vehicle to a halt for a red traffic signal in the curb lane, clearly marked for straight through and right turn traffic only. When the signal changed to green, he made a left turn onto E. Iron Ave. in front of a vehicle stopped beside him. He then had to apply his brakes to avoid a collision with the rear of an auto in front of him. Police stated the auto alongside Polilli’s had the right-of-way. At the time of the last violation a police cruiser was behind the subject and he was apprehended on E. Iron Ave. Upon stopping the lad, police conducted a safety inspection of Polilli’s automobile and found it had no emergency brake, no rear stop lights, no front parking lights and no instrument panel lights. Polilli told police he had just gotten the automobile in operation and did not have time to correct the defects. He will appear in Juvenile Court. Auto Hits Boulder Sheriff deputies investigated a one-car accident at IO yesterday morning on County Road 14, near Gilmore, when a car driven by Mary M. Staten, 41, of RD 2, Port Washington, slid on ice and struck a boulder. The woman received a bump to her head. There was no citation.

NOVEMBER WAS 'PLEASANT' Freezing Weather Greets December WARRANTS NEED TYPING Blue Law Action May Come Friday November was drier and warmer than usual in this area —in all, a pleasant month. Precipitation amounted to 2.15 inches, nearly a half inch less than the normal 2.61 inches. Temperatures averaged 42.8 degrees, compared with the normal 41.3. High for the month was a 70-degree reading on Nov. 12, and the low was a chilly 12 degrees on Nov. 22. But December got off to a freezing start today, with the thermometer shivering at 7 degrees during a 7 a.m. reading. The large mass of icy air, which didn’t let the tempera ture go above 26 degrees yesterday while an inch of snow covered the ground, spread across most of the eastern half of the nation today and the season’s coldest weather chilled much of the Southland. Freezing temperatures covered areas as far south as northern Florida and along the Gulf Coast. Below-zero marks again were reported in northern Midwest areas but not as low as Monday morning. A warming trend was indicated for much of the Midwest. The mercury failed to move much above zero in some parts See WEATHER, Page 2 ^Weathervane YESTERDAY High 26    Low    7 Elsewhere In U.S. High Low Pr.

Sunday sales cases, which have been accumulating in Northern District Court since last Monday, could be heard Friday once Judge Charles Eckert sends out the warrants. Prosecutor Harlan Spies said this morning he would be available Friday to hear 5 charges in Northern Court and 2 other counts in the Central District Court. Judge Eckert said today he “has been just too busy,” but that an effort would be made to get the arrest warrants out as soon as possible on the 5 charges, filed against one downtown Dover merchant and 2 at Miracle Lane Plaza. Saying he was currently tied up with other matters, Judge Eckert stated the warrants would be turned over to sheriff deputies “as soon as I or the girl (Clerk Virginia Ross) get them typed out.” The counts in Northern District include 2 each against Gray Drug and the Hobby Shop and one against Marlowe Drug. In Central Court, Clerk Marge Burlison says she is waiting for deputies to pick up warrants to be served on Joseph G. Turrin of Turrin Discount and Samuel Hassin, operator of H.&A.
