The toll was well below the 1955 record of 609 deaths, but within the range predicted by the National Safety Council. The final tabulation had 555 persons killed on the highways during the 78-hour period that began at 6 p.m. Thursday and ended at midnight Sunday. The safety council had estimated that between 550 and 650 holiday travelers could perish. Only five states — Alaska, Hawaii, Maine, Montana and Washington — reported no fatalities. In at least five states, holiday accidents helped set 12-month records.

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Heavy mountain snows and gusty coastal winds lashed the northern California flood area Sunday at the end of a week of unprecedented torrential rains, adding to the suffering of hundreds still marooned and hampering relief and rescue work. But the colder weather has put a brake on rivers that had rampaged from the mountains to the Pacific Ocean in the hardest hit area — Oregon and northern California. More snow in the mountains and wind and rain below were forecast for today. The Columbia dropped enough in Washington to permit start of cleanup work. The flood threat appeared over in Idaho but the little town of St. Joe, population 75, in the Panhandle, still was without electricity. In Nevada the Truckee River withdrew its threat to Reno. California counted 19 flood dead with the confirmation Sunday that four had drowned when crash on rain-slicked U.S. 101 near Oceanside took five lives. Three persons lost their lives in a collision in Wisconsin Rapids and three others were killed in a smash-up in northern Illinois. The three Wisconsin deaths plus five other fatalities there in separate accidents, helped set a 12-nionth record.

New Baltic-Garaway School Board To Meet Next Monday An organizational meeting for members of the newly-created Baltic-Garaway Local Board of Education has been scheduled for 7 p.m. next Monday in the County Board of Education offices. The new district actually came into existence last Thursday. Board members were appointed by the County Board of Education, meeting in special session Saturday night. Named were: Francis Putt of RI) I and Harold Widder, both of Sugarcreek; Earl Sundheim-er of Shanesville; Rudy Zehnder of RD 2, Dundee, and Mrs. David Garber of RD I, Fresno. The county board also passed another resolution, thanking the Baltic Local Board for allowing 4 new board members to be appointed from the Caraway board. As part of his efforts to bolster relations with various nations, the President is working on dates for visits from a large number of chiefs of state during the coming months. These visits are expected to average about two a month during the next year. In addition, Johnson is know’n to be considering the appointment of a large number of new ambassadors. It was indicated as many as 15 or 20 posts might be involved. The State-of-the-Union message, the first of the “big three” messages going to Congress in January, is “pretty well bracketed out,” a qualified source said, and the actual writing has been started. Work also is well along on the budget but some major decisions remain to be made by Johnson. These include the amount of money to be asked for what the President calls his “antipoverty program,” whether to propose a pay increase for government civilian workers and the amount of an education package. In a letter to Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara released for publication Sunday, Johnson said he wanted the last See AGENDA, Page 2 On The Inside.... U. N. Negotiations At Crucial Stage ......

Cause of the blaze, w'hieh completely destroyed the tipple, j was undetermined today, ac-1 cording to the foreman, George Miller of Shanesville. Miller, however, said that some men had been welding a portion of; the tipple last Saturday. Strasburg and Dundee Volunteer Fire Departments were called at 9:30 yesterday morning and battled the coal-fed fire until 2:30 p.m. Strasburg firemen were called to the scene again this morning. Damaged were 5 large motors, a shaker, valued at $11,-000 and a coal sifter, costing about $1,000. Miller said that plans to rebuild the tipple were indefinite. He said the steel frame might still be useable, but the timber and machinery would have to be replaced. The tipple had put out some 300 tons of coal a day and a considerable amount was lost in the blaze. The main office of the company is at Mt. Eaton. Mullet is president of the firm. Strasburg Fire Chief Luke Warnes said a nearby resident saw the flames and estimated the tipple had been burning for approximately an hour before his department was called. Two years ago a fire caused more than $50,000 damage at the Mullet tipple along Route 250 north of Wilmot. Spate Granted Sl,000 Pay Hike As New Judge County Commissioners today passed a resolution authorizing an extra $1,000 in pay for Atty. Socrates Space when he assurers office as judge of the county’s Southern District Court. Jan. 4. Space formally submitted his request for the pay increase in accordance with a new law passed during the special session of the Ohio Assembly on Dec. 17. This new statue allows commissioners discretionary power in permitting or refusing an addition of $2,000 to the pay of county district judges. Base pay is $1,500. In addition, the judges are paid further salary at a 3 cents per capita rate based on the county’s population. In Tuscarawas County, this amounts to approximately $2,-300. Under the old Ohio law, commissioners were permitted to add $1,000 to the above amount, and in this county, did so. County District Judges, up to now, have been paid approximately $4,800. Space under the new Ihw, See SPACE, Page 2 a helicopter plunged into the Eel River 40 miles south of Eureka Saturday. Seven died in another California ‘copter crash last Tuesday north of Eureka. Oregon reported 18 deaths from flood action. The Red Cross listed 16,300 families as suffering major losses to homes, businesses or farms in Oregon, California, Idaho and Washington.

The resolution for the consolidation, following a 30-day waiting period in which no petition for a referendum vote was filed, received unanimous approval by the county board. The new district now has 7 buildings, 2 high school and 5 elementary buildings. The urgency in which the consolidation was handled was based, in part, on the fact that an additional $66,000 to $90,000 in state foundation money would See BOARD, Page 2 City Truck Is 'Shot Up' Mayor C. LeMoyne Luthy today gave a brief dissertation on one of his pet peeves — discharging fire-arms within city limits. Over the weekend youths, apparently armed with BB or pellet guns received as Christmas gifts, took pot shots at a city vehicle parked at the city dump, shattering 2 headlights. “These weapons,” Luthy said, “can be lethal and their use within the city limits of Dover will not be tolerated.” The mayor also pointed out that youths using BB or pellet guns must be accompanied by an adult while firing them.

Here is his report.) By JAMES PICKERELL DAI NGAI, South Viet Nam (AP) — Government forces overran a major Viet Cong position Sunday, killing at least 67 guerrillas and capturing IO others as well as a large stock of weapons. It was one of the most significant government successes in the past year. U.S. officers believed that the position, 75 miles southwest of Saigon, was a Viet Cong zone command headquarters. The Communists have divided South Viet Nam into seven zones. The government forces suffered ll dead and 42 wounded. Among the wounded were seven U.S. Army helicopter crewmen hit by small-arms fire. (Ten other Americans were reported wounded in other actions in the Mekong delta Sunday. Two were reported in serious condition.) Capt. Robert W.
