On one side sat defending champ Sten-Ake Cederhoek, 52, weighing 233 pounds. On the other was challenger Ake Eriksson, 33 and 229^. Before them was a huge in smorgasbord: six varieties fish, including raw halibut mayonnaise; reindeer steak, pork back stuffed with plums; pressed calf’s brain; ox tongue; varieties of pork, beef, chicken, turkey and duck, as well as sau- ofjsage pies, salads, vegetables, sauces and assorted cheeses, fruits, nuts and raisins, coffee, beer and water. In the end it was a dainty pastry that meant the difference between victory and defeat. Challenger Eriksson started out heavy, stuffing down about a pound of meats and vegetables. The champ coasted with three-quarters of a pound. In the second round Eriksson maintained his offensive but the champ met him in sharp in-    lowed by the spare ribs and    ach pains.

In commenting on the decision, Prosecutor Harlan Spies told The Daily Reporter this morning: “Since there have been decisions for and against Blue Laws in Tuscarawas County courts, we are now contemplating presenting the matter to Common Pleas Court in order that a countywide interpretation can be established.’' Acquitted in rulings made Tuesday by the Northern District Court jurist of alleged illegal Sunday sales taking place Nov. 22, were: Mrs. Fannie L. Marlowe, president of Marlowe Drug Inc. on 131 VV. 3rd St. in downtown Dover; Clair L. McCord, manager of Gray Drug Store in Miracle Lane Plaza; Robert Button, owner of The Hobby Shop, in Miracle Lane Plaza. In his findings, Judge Eckert noted that Button’s case fell within the exceptions of Section 3773.24 of Ohio’s Revised Code. This covers businesses dealing in hobbies or items of a recreational nature. Mrs. Marlowe was represented at the Dec. ll hearings by Atty. Richard Hanhart and McCord and Button by Atty. M. Paul Redinger. Dover and 9 other Ohio high schools have been singled out by the Ohio Academy of Science for the excellence of their science education program during the 1963-64 school year. Each will receive one of the K reeker Awards, which provides $150 in cash for further improvement of the local science program and a plaque to achievement. The other schools selected this year are: Tippecanoe High at Tipp City, Bryan High, Marion Harding, Valley Forge High at Parma, Elyria, Roy C. Start High at Toledo, Greenhills High at Cincinnati, Chillicothe and Big Walnut High at Sunbury. Thirty-one secondary schools over the state were entered in the competition. Criteria used in judging the schools were preparation and interest of science teachers, content and philosophy of the curriculum, laboratory facilities, budgets, use of community resources, and other items related to a well-rounded program. The Awards, initiated in 1959 under the joint sponsorship of Battelle Memorial Institute and the Ohio Academy of Science, are named in honor of Dr. Frederick ll. Krecker, professor emeritus at Ohio University and founder of the Junior Division of the Academy. Presentations will be made by a representative of the Ohio Academy at a date to be selected by each school.

They were quoted as saying they purposely missed the 38-story East River skyscraper; that their motive was to take newspaper headlines from Ernesto Guevara, Cuban minister Widow Seeks $151,113 In Fatal Mishap The widow of Orville F. Taylor Jr., who was killed in an auto crash on Route 250 last Aug. 18, has filed a $151,113 benefit suit in Common Pleas Court in connection with her husband’s death. Mrs. Betty Taylor of 213 Welch St., Dennison, has lodged the suit against Motor Freight Inc. of New Philadelphia. In her petition, she charges that Bruce Wade, 38, of RI) I, New Philadelphia, was “careless and negligent in the operation’’ of his coal trailer which he was driving for Motor Freight at the time of the accident. Wade was acquitted on Nov. 25 by a Common Pleas jury of a second degree manslaughter charge. He had been accused of making an improper left turn into the Motor Freight Inc. yard, just south of the Midvale junction. In asking for the $151,113, Mrs. Taylor includes loss of $4,-050 of her husband’s annual salary and $1,041 in burial expenses. She states that her action was brought for the exclusive benefit of herself and Taylor’s mother, Mrs. Georgia Tay- In announcing his verdicts, Judge Eckert stated: “Until such time as the Legislature itself determines exceptions as to what businesses can be open and what are necessities and what are not necessities, I feel it is not up to the judicial to determine or interpret what they (the Legislature) considers necessities.’’ Ecker further noted that the “laws are so vague in definition” that the judicial will be hampered “until the Legislature becomes more explicit in its interpretations.” He declined, however, to specifically state he would not hear future cases involving Blue Law violations. All 3 cases can be appealed by the state, should it so desire. The Marlowe case was the only one where a record was maintained, and could be appealed on the basis of testimony given Dec. ll. In the other cases, appeal! could be made under the law’s; “de novo” stipulation. Under it there are 2 recourses for appeal: (I) — The prosecutor and defense attorney can agree to the facts presented and I not recall any witnesses or (2) —Retry the case in Common Pleas Court just as though it hadn’t been tried previously. Still pending in Northern District Court are additional charges against 2 of the merchants found innocent by Eckert. They were filed Nov. 30 for alleged illegal sales on Sunday, Nov. 29, by Kenneth Crawford against Button, and by Richard Lengler against McCord. Leng-ler and Crawford are employed of J. C. Penney Co.

Treasurer Victor Martinelli had earlier announced the mailing would take place on Dec. 28. His office force, however, has completed the work ahead of schedule. Martinelli said today that he was not sure when New Philadelphia corporation statements would be mailed, though Monday was the date earlier announced. The Auditor’s Office has not as yet completed the tax duplicates for New Philadelphia from which the treasurer’s office prepared the tax statements. Auditor Donald Kinsey has left for vacation and none of his office force could say today when the work on the New Philadelphia taxes would be completed. As announced earlier, County Commissioners have extended the final date for payment of real estate taxes from Dec. 20 to Jan. 20. If a further extension is necessary, approval must be obtained from the Ohio Tax Department.

Ruling Given On I Deaths | XENIA, Ohio (AP) - The ! deaths of a state liquor agent I and a Dayton man were ruled today to have been accidental and justifiable homicide. The deputy coroner, Dr. R.D. i Hendrickson, ruled the shooting death of state liquor agent I .James Burns was accidental.! He ruled the death of Rudolph ! I Young of Dayton justifiable homicide. Both men were killed at a j party in a private home in Xen- j ia last Nov. 7. Prosecutor John Peterson said! no further action was planned in the case by his office. Young was fatally wounded by a bullet from Burns’ pistol during a scuffle with the liquor agent. Burns was shot by Policeman John Angell who arrived at the house to find the agent holding a gun. Angell said he fired when Burns did not heed an order to drop the weapon, but that he intended only to wound the man. Angelic bullet severed an artery and Burns bled to death. Hendrickson’s ruling came after a two-day inquest earlier this month at which a witness testified that Burns had identified himself as a state liquor agent prior to the fatal scuffle. Investigators said tests showed both Burns and Young had had their hands on or near the pistol when it fired. Before he died, Burns said he had gone to the house to investigate drinking. Witnesses at the inquest testified he had attempted to buy a drink at the party but had been refused. The Crime Had Shortcomings Hubcaps Are Stolen Fred Schupbaeh of 415 E. 2nd St., reported to Dover police Tuesday morning theft of 4 wire wheel hubcaps from his automobile while it was parked in front of his home. Anything for a friend — even if it’s a rabbit! Two 12-year-old New Philadelphia boys, concerned over the welfare of a pet bunny, are now the concern of juvenile officers. Police Chief Louis Clark said the boys Monday night broke into the Farmers Feed Service Co. at rear 243 6th St. SW, to get some rabbit pellets — 400 pounds to be exact. The pair, however, did not commit the “perfect crime.” They left a trail of rabbit pellets and cart tracks in the snow that led directly to the back door of one boy’s nearby home. Officers said they found the push cart and about 175 pounds of pellets under the backporch, the remainder of the 400 pounds having toppled off during the 3-block trip. As fate would have it, the pellets would have been no good to them anyway. The rabbit died hours after the food supply arrived and having given birth to several offspring. Chief Clark, whose men worked on the case Tuesday morning, said the pair will be charged as delinquents by Officer Don Patterson. A crow bar, used in the breakin, was confiscated by police. island in California’s Eel River. Anti-U. S. Looming By PETER ARNETT , SAIGON, Viet Nam (AP) — I There were indications tonight that South Vietnamese military men were cranking up an anti-American campaign that may even involve street demonstrations against U.S. Ambassador Maxwell D. Taylor. Informed sources said Lt. Gen. Nguyen Khanh, commander of the armed forces, alreadyj has drawn the outlines of such a campaign before his military council of some 20 high officers. It was not known whether the civilian premier, Tran Van Huong, would go along, but1 Khanh had clearly become the strongest man in South Viet Nam for the time being. Khanh told the nation by ra-; dio Tuesday night that no foreign power could impose its policies on his armed forces. In the speech, Khanh was clearly taking an anti-American tone, with the added assertion his country could go on without American assistance if necessary. Later, Khanh granted an in-★ Rusk Issues U. S. Warning By LEWIS GULICK WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of State Dean Rusk was expected to underline today strong U.S. opposition to interference by the South Vietnamese military with the duly constituted government in Saigon. Washington wrants the generals to shun politics and concentrate on winning the war. Rusk holds a late morning news conference which had been scheduled before the latest pow'cr struggle in the Vietnamese capital. With President Johnson’s approval, the State Department issued an unusually tough state-1 ment Tuesday night warning Vietnamese generals that American support is based on the existence of a Saigon government of national unity “without improper interference from any group.” The statement also gave full backing to U.S. Ambassador Maxwell Taylor, whose efforts to undo Sunday’s military purge of the civilian regime came under attack from the Vietnamese army commander Lt. Gen. Nguyen Khanh. “A duly constituted government exercising full power on the basis of national unity and without improper interference from any group,” the U.S. statement said, “is the essential condition for the successful prosecution of the effort to defeat the Viet Cong and is the basis for U.S. support for that effort.” Press officer Robert J.
