Dover Daily Reporter (Newspaper) - December 15, 1964, Dover, Ohio Nuts Was U.S. Reply To Ultimatum...German Doubted Bulge Chances Gen. Anthony C. McAuliffe By FRED S. HOFFMAN WASHINGTON (AP) - Even after 20 years, the words on the yellowed sheet of paper made the old soldier mad. “It was the last sentence, that lousy last sentence that did it,” growled Gen. Anthony C. McAuliffe as he reread the German surrender ultimatum delivered to him in surrounded Bastogne. The German commander gave McAuliffe two hours to surrender his 101st Airborne Division and the Belgian town it held. After that, the German warned, massed Nazi artillery would “annihilate the U.S.A. troops in and near Bastogne.” Then came the German windup sentence — the one that stung McAuliffe because he felt it held a sneer. It said: “All the serious civilian losses caused by this artillery fire would not correspond with the well-known American humanity.” On impulse, the hard-jawed commander of the “Battered Bastards of Bastogne” replied with one defiant word — “Nuts.” That reply made McAuliffe a living legend of World War II. Now 66 and retired from the Army and a big chemical company, the veteran paratroop general talked about the epic siege as he sat in his comfortable apartment, high above a busy Washington avenue. Though -his hair and bristling See MCAULIFFE, Page 5 Gen. Heinrich von Luettwitz By JOHN FIEHN NEUBERG, Germany (AP) — The German general who was ordered to capture Bastogne 20 years ago said today that had his mission succeeded, it still would not have won the Battle of the Bulge for Hitler. On Dec. 16, 1944, Field Mar shal Gerd von Rundstedt threw 250,000 of Germany's crack troops into a massive onslaught on thin U.S. defenses in the Ardennes Forest. The German objective was to cross the Meuse River and drive to Brussels and Antwerp. Gen. Heinrich von Luettwitz, commanding the 57th German Armored Corps, was ordered to take Bastogne, a small Belgian frontier town at an important road junction. It had to be secured to safeguard the attackers’ further advance, Luettwitz said. “It was a desperate effort doomed from the outset,” said Luettwitz, now 68. “The terrain was wholly unsuitable for any major attack. The Ardennes j Mountains, rolling, forested country deeply cut by steep and twisting valleys of mountain streams, had few roads on which our armor could move. “When we attacked, fog strangled the Allied air operations. But any military leader of common sense should have known that the Allies’ air superiority would finally win the battle. “Under these circumstances, capturing Bastogne or not didn’t See VON LUETTWITZ, Page 5 The Associated Press Is The Exclusive News Service of The Reporter The Daily Reporter VOL. 61.

Dover Gets Link In Ohio Route Setup Dover, without an official link between Interstate 77 and State Routes 250-8 since the completion of IS 77, will have just that in early January. A public hearing on a State of Ohio recommendation was conducted this morning in City Council chambers by Earl W. Nelson, Division ll deputy director. It reads that Route 211, heretofore used as a link between downtown Dover and the Green Gables intersection, be relocated within Dover Corporation limits. The highway department suggested Route 211 begin on N. Tuscarawas Ave. in Dover where Route 39 enters the city, run a distance of 1.3 miles, going south on Tuscarawas Ave. to Front St. where it would join Route 21, then east on Front St. to N. Wooster Ave. where Routes 250 and 8 cross the river. It would thus provide the city a connecting link between IS 77 and Routes 21. 250 and 8, with Route 39 at the northwest edge of the city. Registering approval were Mayor C. LeMoyne Luthy, Jack Everhart, manager of the Tuscarawas County Automobile Club, and Jim Burgess, Chamber of Commerce secretary-manager. There were no dissenters at the 11-minute hearing. Nelson pointed out to those present that there have been complaints registered with his department by motorists on Route 39 from Sugarcreek that they didn't know how' to get from Route 39 to Route 8 See LINK, Page 2 Largest Circulation In Tuscarawas County Dover-New Philadelphia, Ohio, Tuesday, December 15, 1964 HOME EDITION NOW READ BY 12,000 FAMILIES PHONE 4-2167    7    CENTS HI wm Phila Woman Clears Misunderstanding' Mrs. Tatliak and the children, Barbara, Christine and Philip, admire the citizenship document attained after 19 years. By Juanita Abel Daily Reporter Women’s Editor uyhen you have lived almost Y half of your life in a country it is easy to forget that you are not a citizen. And this was the case with Mrs. Michael (Bertha) Tatliak of 525 Front Ave. SW, New Philadelphia, wartime bride who arrived here 19 years ago from her native England. Due to a misunderstanding, plus procrastination, the attrac tive woman, now the mother of 3, did not become a citizen of her “adopted” country until last week. When she came here with her infant daughter, Barbara, Bertha understood that aliens had to wait 5 years before applying for citizenship. Later she and the children, Barbara, Philip, now 13, and Christine, ll, went to England to visit her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Philip Whitehouse of Stratfordshire, and her only brother, Philip. She now thought she must wait another 5 years. She later learned that this law did not apply to wives of servicemen and after that it was just a case of “putting it off.” “Each January the children would remind me that I must register as an alien,” she commented with only a trace of a See WOMAN, Page 9 RICHARDS GETS AT-LARGE SEAT Phila Council Hires Firm For Future City Planning CompleteCleanup Of Reserve Within 16Months By FRED S. HOFFMAN WASHINGTON (API — The Pentagon is aiming to complete the revolutionary reorganization of the Army’s Reserve forces in about 16 months, it was learned today. Key officers of the National Guard and the Army Reserve have been told in secret briefings that the objective date for final action is the end of March 1966. Joseph V.

Mrs. beice Salyers, her 5 children, ages 3 to 8, and her mother, Mrs. Claracy Clark, were at home at I p.m. when Mrs. Salyers noticed smoke coming down the stairway to the upstairs. She alerted Deersville and Washington Township firemen, but the home was destroyed before they arrived. Lyle Stewart, Washington Township fire chief, set damage at $5,000 to the contents and $5,-000 to the home, which was owned by Mrs. Clark. Stewart said that everything Was lost except a television set and deep freeze, which were carried to safety. Cause of the blaze has not been determined. Salyers was working at the lime. The family stayed with Mrs. See BLAZE Page 2 By TOM OCHILTREE PARIS (AP) - The United States, Britain and West Germany pushed ahead today with private negotiations for setting up an Allied nuclear command despite France’s refusal to have any part in it. This move, reported by Allied sources, overshadowed the opening of the annual vearend ministerial meeting of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. France was left out of the planning by its own choice. U.S. Secretary of State Dean Rusk has told President Charles de Gaulle that American proposals for a mixed-manned nuclear fleet, or any arrangement growing out of that multilateral force would be left open for ultimate French participation. Rusk, Britain’s Patrick Gordon Walker and West Germany’s Gerhard Schroeder scheduled a private meeting to discuss the nuclear command idea. The United States and Germany prefer the original fleet idea. Under this arrangement the alliance would create a fleet of 25 surface ships armed with a total of 200 nuclear-tipped Polaris missiles.

Dover Board To Determine Health Policy On Monday A decision on whether the Dover Board of Education will pay $1,680 to the County Board of Health for continued health services in 1965 will be made at a recessed meeting Monday. The board last night instructed Supt. Emmet Riley to obtain additional information on the Health Department operation and specifically the program for schools. It was emphasized that Dover schools will maintain a health program one way or another. The $1,680 represents a 50-cent assessment for each pupil and was set by the Health Board last month in an attempt to raise $8,500 in the Health Department’s receipts for 1965. The county has approximately 17,000 students in the health program. Dr. Leslie Lawrence, health commissioner, said the additional money is needed to restore voluntary 5 per cent cut in pay last year for all health employes and to increase salaries in 1965. All county school districts, excluding New Philadelphia, j which has its own health de-! partrnent, are involved in the 50-cent per pupil request. In other business, the board was notified that the Ohio Academy of Science had designated Dover High as one of the IO schools in the state having an outstanding science program during the 1963-64 school year.

Ailments Take William Bendix William Bendix By DOBIS KLEIN HOLLYWOOD (AP) - Actor William Bendix is dead. And so, in a way, is Chester A. Riley, the pug-faced, soft-hearted factory worker he made famous in television, radio and the movies. Bendix succumbed Monday at Los Angeles Good Samaritan Hospital to lobar pneumonia, complicated by a stomach ailment. He was 58. At his bedside were his wife of 37 years, Therese, 58; daughters Stephanie, 20, and Lorraine, 30, and Mrs. Alan Ladd, with whose late actor husband Bendix once starred. During his career, Bendix played characters ranging from brutal villains to everybody’s pal. To millions of fans of “The Life of Riley” television show, Bendix’ death was a double loss. It removed Chester Riley, the harried father. Bendix’ wife once admitted to an interviewer: “Chester Riley and Bill Bendix are alike in a lot of ways. “Bill’s bluff manner doesn’t let outsiders know what he is like at all. He has all the kindness and desire to help others that Riley is noted for. Sometimes, when I watch a Riley show, I say to myself, ‘You’d think the writers lived with us.’ ” Like Riley, Bendix was a bit of a failure in the beginning. Born in New York City Jan. 14, 1906, he flopped as a bat boy for the New York Giants — his mother wouldn’t let him go out for spring training. He didn’t do much better as a semi-pro base- See BENDIX Page 9 -Weathervane YESTERDAY High 40    Low    15 Elsewhere In U.S. High Low Pr. Albuquerque, clear 38    13    ..
