Official' Phila Family Appears At Odds On City's Financial Picture
By Joe Woerdeman Daily Reporter Staff Writer
A proposed 1965 budget, including pay increases for city employes, has been submitted to New Philadelphia’s City Council without referral to the city auditor or treasurer.
At a special session on Nov. 30, Council asked Mayor Joe Pritz to prepare such a budget, trying to work in salary increases despite an expected 1964 fund deficit that will reduce monies available for 1965 appropriations.
Council at that time suggested the mayor first establish pay raises of $50 monthly for all city employes, and then by paring other expenditures in the various department funds, balance appropriations with estimated revenue for 1965.
At last Monday’s regular Council meeting, Pritz announced he had prepared the budget as requested and distributed copies of the proposal to Council members. Another special session to discuss the matter was called for 7:30 p.m., next
After Monday’s meeting, Auditor Charlotte White and Treasurer Gamon Thomas both stated they were not consulted by the mayor in working out the new budget. In fact, as of Tuesday, they still had not been giv
en copies of the proposal, they said. Together they are the elected officials who control and account for receipt and expenditure of tax money.
For a number of months., the mayor has openly taken excep
tion to the auditor’s method of handling of finances and on several occasions has challenged the accuracy and correctness of her accounts of appropriated monies.

NATO Power Is Sufficient —McNamara
By TOM OCHILTREE
PARIS (AP) — Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara said today the North Atlantic Treaty Organization now is so powerful in nuclear and conventional power that further large-scale investments in such weapons are unnecessary.
McNamara told NATO ministers that, generally speaking, present force goals of the alliance are adequate to meet aggression.
Except for a few countries, he
