BROWNE SAIGON, Viet Nam (AP) -South Viet Nam announced to day the United States has I agreed to an across-the-board increase in aid in the war against the Communist Viet Cong and hinted that the war will soon be expanded outside this country, “The U.S. government has offered additional military and economic assistance to improve the execution of the government’s programs and to restrain the mounting infiltration of men and equipment by the Hanoi regime in support of the Viet Cong,” a communique said. This development was disclosed as the Buddhist hierarchy called on the United States in a letter to Ambassador Maxwell D. Taylor for .support in a campaign to oust Premier Tran Van Huong’s civilian administration. Top Buddhist leaders met in a council of war. A U.S. spokesman said the government’s communique had been prepared after consultations With the U.S. mission here, but that the mission would have no comment. The communique said the air defenses of South Viet Nam will be strengthened, implying that more U.S. fighters and other equipment were on the way. The communique did not spell out what forms the new American aid will take. A U.S. official said some provisions will be kept secret for security reasons and other aspects have not been fully worked out. Consultations between the American mission and r FEDERAL JURY EXPECTED TO GET EVIDENCE 20th Man Freed On CR Death Charge Capt. Wayne Kromi ★ BILOXI, Miss. (AP)—At the request of the Justice Department, a woman U.S. commissioner today freed a 20th man arrested last week in connection with the slaying of three civil rights workers in Mississippi. Commissioner V e r t a Lee Sweatman dismissed the charge against James Edward Jordan, 38, during a preliminary hearing here that took only two minutes. Nineteen other white men ar rested in the sensational case were freed at Meridian Thursday when another woman commissioner, Esther Carter, refused to hear a purported confession on grounds it constituted hearsay evidence. Government lawyers were I stunned at what one called an unprecedented action. They refused to offer any other evidence at the Meridian hearing and announced they would ask that a federal grand jury be convened quickly to the evidence. consider The FBI had arrested 21 white men Dec. 4 in connection with the slayings last summer near Philadelphia, Miss., of the civil rights trio—two white New Yorkers and a Mississippi Negro. The 21st man, Horace D. Barnette, was arrested near Shreveport, La., and was not affected by the preliminary hearings in Mississippi. He was reported today to be conferring with his attorney in Shreveport. U.S. Commissioner James Barton in Shreveport said he has not received any communication from the Justice Department or from Barnette’s counsel. Barton has not set a date for a hearing. Barnette, 25, of Cullen, La., is free under $5,000 bond on a conspiracy charge. Jordan, also arrested on a conspiracy charge, is a construction worker at the Nation al Aeronautics and Space Administration testing facility in Hancock County, Miss. He is a member of the Ku Klux Elan. Jordan did not appear at the Biloxi hearing at which his freedom was announced, being represented by his attorney. Both Jordan and Barnette formerly lived in the Meridian area. It will be up to U.S. Dist. Judge Harold Cox at Jackson to convene the grand jury. Robert Owen, Justice Department attorney, said the request would be made to Cox as soon as possible. When Miss Carter ruled against the testimony of an FBI agent, Owen declined to put up additional evidence. Then the gray-haired commissioner said she had no alternative but to grant a defense mo* See CIVIL RIGHTS, Page I Jet Crash Kills Bolivar Native See VIETNAMESE, Page 2 Air Force Capt.

Library Board Scans Balance The Dover Public Library Board, in a 2-hour session yesterday, discussed the impact of the balance of a $31,000 fund and circulation count on operating funds allocated by the County Budget Commission. Purchase of an adjoining property on Walnut St. for future expansion also was reviewed, with a decision deferred pending a legal clarification by the Ohio Attorney General. The $11,000 balance in the fund, designated for capital improvements and for contingency purposes, was examined in light of the recent statement made by Treasurer Vie Marti-nelli that the Budget Commission weighed the “nest egg” in its allocation of operating money for the Dover Library. According to an Oct. 9, 1956, plan drafted by the board to reduce the $31,000 at the re quest of the commission, $12,000 was to be maintained as an emergency fund. “The $31,000 was accumulated over the last 30 years through sale of property, frugality and saving of operating money, which Martinelli claims, could have been used by other libraries. Martinelli told 3 members of the library board at a commission hearing that Dover’s annual operating funds were cut by the amount the commission de- See LIBRARY, Page 2 Atlas-Centaur Space Rocket Posts Success By HOW ARD BENEDICT AP Aerospace Writer CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) —The Atlas-Centaur space rocket registered a much - needed test flight success today, hurling its two-ton Centaur second j stage and metal model of a moonship into a precise orbit around the earth. The orbit, a circular path 103 miles high, is the course the (Centaur stage must achieve on future unmanned moon and planetary launchings. The success w'as the second in four test flights for the Atlas-Centaur. It heralded a possible end to problems which have harassed the rocket and have put it about three years behind schedule. Continued success might enable it to plant a Project Surveyor spacecraft on the moon late next year. Packed in the Centaur’s nose today was a 2,100-pound chunk of metal with the same weight and center of mass as the Surveyor. It was rigged with in- See CENTAUR, Page 2 Blue Law Case Hearing Opens CHEESE FACTORY.

By Pete Groh Daily Reporter Staff Writer The battle of the Ohio Sunday Blue Laws in Dover and New Philadelphia finally found their way into the court today as Samuel Hassin of New Philadelphia went on trial in Central District Court for permitting the sale of 79 cents worth of Christmas cards in his drug store on Sunday, Nov. 22. Three other Blue Law cases are slated to begin this afternoon in Northern District Court. In a move at noon today, Assistant Prosecutor James Thomas had a subpoena issued to the court the 1963 and 1964 personal property tax returns of Hassin. The move is intended to prove that Hassin is the owner of the II & A Cut Rate Drug Store. The trial, slated to begin at IO this morning, was delayed for 45 minutes while defense at-tornys, Daniel Lehigh and James Patrick, filed 2 motions and a demurrer for dismissal of the case on various grounds. Judge Clarence Ferrell overruled all 3 actions. The demurrer stated the Blue Law Section of the Ohio Revised Code is both unconstitutional under the United States and the Ohio Constitutions. In one of the motions, Lehigh contended there was not a spe-^ cific offense set forth in the affidavit while the second motion pertained to the filing of a complaint within IO days of the alleged violation. In his arguments, Lehigh stat-1 ed that on 2 occasions, a Lu cas County judge declared the law unconstitutional. The first. state witness was Michael Pasulka, manager of Fisher’s Dry Goods Store in Miracle Lane Plaza, who filed the original complaint against Hassin in the Prosecutor’s Office. (At the same time, he also charged Joseph Turrin of Tur-rin Discount Co. of New Philadelphia with the same offense. A hearing for Turrin has been set for IO a.m. Monday before Judge Ferrell.) Pasulka, a resident of 122 Buckeye Ave., Dover said he bought the package of Christ- See BLUE LAW, Page 2 Annexation Hearing Set County Commissioners today set IO a.m. on Feb. 15 for the public hearing on the annexation of 20 properties located in Goshen Township in the Schoen-brunn area southwest of New Philadelphia to the city.

Conclusive Evidence! Dover Parks Supt. Clarence Stucky, who through the years has been a principal benefactor of youths using the baseball diamonds and skating pond, went off the deep end for them yesterday. Stucky and Service Director H. S. Ream met Thursday morning for a brief strategy huddle concerning the advent of warmer weather and the one inch of snow on the City Park ice skating pond s 2 inches of ice, a combination which could lead to a rough surface once it was thick enough to bear skaters. They came to the conclusion that it might be best at this time to remove the snow. Taking a snow-blowing machine in hand, Stucky made 3 to 4 swoops over the pond before taking the plunge through the ice, snow-blowing machine and all, up to his knees. City workers extricated the machine. Dried out, both Stucky and the machine were none the worse for wear. Coming Saturday . . .

A $6,000 deficit in the treasury of the County Democratic Central Committee has put the squeeze on elected Democratic officials. They have received letters asking that they purchase one $10 ticket for Tuesday’s “patron’s dinner” for each $1,000 of their salaries. In addition, workers within the officials’ department are expected to purchase one $10 ticket. This request is over and above the appeal made by letter to members of the Democratic Central Committee in which they were asked to purchase 2 tickets to the banquet. Several officials this morning, who wish to remain unnamed, said they were completely in the dark as to how the $6,000 deficit occurred. They admitted they had heard previously the committee funds were some $4,-OOO in the red. Thus far, the Central Committee has not filed any statement of receipts and expenditures with the County Board of Elections Office, as is required by law. Dec. 18 is the cutoff date for the filing. In the statements filed by a number of elected Democratic officials, not one Usts any contributions made to him by the Central Committee for his campaign. Several do list contributions ranging up to $75 which were made to the committee. The dinner will be held in New Philadelphia Elks auditorium at 6:30 p.m. Wayne L. Hays of Flushing, 18th Congressional District representative, is slated as the guest speaker. Tuscarawas County has been placed in the 18th District in one of the redistricting proposals being considered by the Ohio Legislature. On Tho    .... Firestone To Buy Seiberling Interests ......
