The Legislature, after receiving a study by the Legislative

Tax Payment Date Extended
Final date for payment of real estate taxes has been extended from the Dec. 20, date set by Ohio law, to Jan. 20 by the County Treasurer, with authorization of County Commissioners.
Treasurer Victor Martinelli yesterday said taxpayers' statements will be mailed to all county subdivisions, except for Dover, New Philadelphia and Newcomerstown corporations by Monday.
Statements to residents of Dover and New Philadelphia should be mailed by Dec. 28, the treasurer said but could give no date for Newcomerstown.
Though state law sets Dec. 20 as final tax payment date, statements are consistently mailed late in the county. Auditor Donald Kinsey explains the lateness by the fact that his office must usually wait past November elections in order to establish tax rates.
Only after the rates are determined, the auditor says, can his office begin preparation of the individual taxpayers statements.

Quartet members are: Lianne Casper and Betty McCrea of New Philadelphia, sopranos; Evelyn Whinery and Mamie Baker of Dover, altos; Garrison Fin* zer of Sugarcreek and Robert Bird of Dover, tenors; and Thomas Maurer and James
Baker of Dover, bassos.
They will present Go To Sleep, Holy Child (Arthur Gwynne); II Iledentore — The Savior Is Born (words and music by Tino
Comini); and God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen (arranged by Sir John Stainer), with the orchestra.
Tickets may be obtained at the Dover High box office prior to concert.
The first concert presented in November, was attended by one of the largest and most appreciative audiences in the history of the Philharmonic Orchestra.
Anyone interested in becoming a member may audition for Conductor Kilinski any Monday between 6:30 and 7 p.m. in the rehearsal room at Dover High.
Adults are in demand and especially anyone playing a French horn, oboe, trombone or stringed instrument.
To make an appointment for auditioning, interested persons I should call James Baker at 4-1 2872 or 7-2616.

LBJ REQUEST ON VIET NAM WARFARE
Use Influence, Soviets Asked
By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER
AP Special Correspondent
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Johnson administration has asked the new Soviet leaders to use their influence to halt Communist operations from North Viet Nam against South Viet Nam.
The request was made to Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko by Secretary of State Dean Rusk in the course of a series of conferences Gromyko held here with Rusk and President Johnson. Rusk also asked the Russians Wednesday to work for peace in Southeast Asia.
Gromyko conferred with Johnson at the White House for about 90 minutes. In a show of cordiality, the President escorted him to the door when the talk ended.
Gromyko said disarmament and several other subjects were discussed in his meeting with the President and added: “I think that the exchange of views was useful and the atmosphere in the course of the conversation was friendly.”
He did not specify the other topics taken up with Johnson. But he did say that the President welcomed the $555 million defense budget cut which was
announced Wednesday by Soviet Premier Alexei N. Kosygin.
Asked whether Johnson and
he talked about the possibility of an East-West summit conference, Gromyko brushed aside the question.
Johnson was understood, however, to have developed the line that he is deeply interested in easing tensions and improving East-West relations particularly in the field of new disarmament agreements. He has made clear in the past that if there were constructive results in j view he would be willing to go anywhere and meet with anyone I
for the purpose.
Gromyko said he brought to Johnson a message of best wishes from the Soviet leaders — the men who replaced Premier Nik-jita Khrushchev in mid-October.
An earlier meeting between Rusk and Gromyko over luncheon at the Soviet Embassy produced what U.S. officials called a lively exchange on the war in South Viet Nam. It was on that occasion that Rusk told Gromyko the United States hoped the Soviet Union would use its influence to work for peace in Southeast Asia.
Gromyko, according to U.S.

MERIDIAN, Miss. (AP) — An FBI agent told a U.S. commissioner today he had a confession signed by one of 21 men charged in connection with the killing of three civil rights workers.
A dozen defense attorneys immediately objected to use of the alleged confession on grounds it was “hearsay” evidence.
The report of the alleged confession came at a preliminary hearing before Commissioner Esther Carter for 19 of the 21 men arrested last Friday.
Woman Takes Own Life In Sandyville

Roswell s 65 Budget Goes In — With Hope
Members of Roswell Village Council have their fingers
Their 1965 budget, due July 20, was submitted
By James Davis
Dally Reporter City Editor
Reorganization of Ohio’s 777 school systems into larger attendance and administrative units, a familiar refrain in Tuscarawas County, was proposed yesterday at Kent State University School.
Robert Beynon, director of re-| search for the State Department of Education, outlined the contents of a study made by what he termed a 12-man “professors of higher learning” to some 150 school superintendents and executive heads from northeast
He said that the committee was charged with making recommendations to overhaul
Ohio’s school districts and in what manner it is to be done.
Beynon told the group that no public school officials had been involved to date in an effort to keep bias out of the recommendations, adding that
“school people would be brought into the study soon.”
In prefacing his address,
Beynon distinguished between attendance units and adminis
trative units, the latter being
comprised of 2 or more attendance units (schools).
He termed the major concept of the study as “the permissive reorganization by means of a planned program.”
Using a projector, he pointed out that the number of Ohio school districts had dropped from 2,023 in 1929-30 to 777 in the 1964-65 school year, the vast majority through consoli-l dation via local initiative.
Beynon also stated that if re-

Beaverdam Creek Dredging Begins
City crews began dredging Beaverdam Creek near 8th Dr. SW in New Philadelphia this morning.
Mayor Joseph Pritz said they would continue until reaching the corporation limits near Beaver Ave. NE.
City officials hope the dredging will help alleviate the annual flooding problem in that section of the city.
A “clam digger” was on the job today, but Pritz said the city Graball will be used later.

prophecy of one colleague, that “They (the budget commission) in 9 cases out of IO would accept it, anyway,” holds true.
The budget, or the lack of it until now, came under discussion at Wednesday’s meeting, presided over by Mayor Leonard (Diz) Simonetti.
Clerk Tom Daniels told them then that responsibility for its tardiness lays with him and that he had it prepared since July I.
It was reported previously that Roswell officials had ignored repeated requests for the budget from county officials. But Daniels said: “If any notices were ever sent, and I have received many of them in previous years, I never received them.”
