WHEELER COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP)-The stage is now set, the new cast is anxious and the taxpayers may get some new lines from a very old script. So, five days from today the curtain will rise on the next session of the Legislature, the 106th Ohio General Assembly. The old show, the 105th Gen eral Assembly, closed Tuesday night. It was a special showing, mostly Republican - produced, and had a short run of six weeks, beginning Nov. 9. The new show Jan. 4 may run three months or longer. Democrats, with more parts for this one, promise the new session will have more drama. ^ I I    jb    I    «    I    -    -    j Hk ■    jJF    I    Bl    Vk    A    Jjjjf    H Oaths Administered Review Natures Blow 111 West To County Officials of 1964 I fi,uoc Cl Dill' IY»manp County officials elected to new j The judge told the group that -    I rH lf    „ [jf 3 p jj | I I g Si I I    jjj | I | fi rn I SJT terms in office beginning in I the ceremony should impress on    f    j    w    ■    wm    11 ■ I    I ■    rn    ■ [a1 matters, although he is the Senate’s presiding officer.

IL Lamneck in the Common Pleas courtroom. Lamneck stated, in a few brief remarks afterward, that it was the first time in his memory that a group of county officials had been sworn in before the bench. YMCA Leaders Rule Roost In Northeast Ohio Members of Tuscarawas County’s YMCA Leaders Clubs today again rank No. I among 14 YMCA’s throughout northeastern Ohio. The Y’s 3 leader clubs, including 29 members, captured first place honors Tuesday at the annual Northeast Ohio YMCA Leaders rally in the Alliance YMCA. It was the third title in the last 4 years taken by the local youths. Both the local Y-ettes and Olympic Clubs garnered first place finishes in competition with 200 other youths. The Y-cttes totaled 17 points in topping host Alliance which finished second with IO. Ashtabula had 9 points, Elyria 7, Wiliough-See YMCA, Page 2 Philo Police Check 2 Vandalism Calls Ronald Wynn of Canton told New Philadelphia police last night someone tossed an egg against the side of his auto while it was parked on N. Broadway. At 6:35 p.m., Mrs. Eddie Mears of 217 Ashwood Lane NW said the lock had been broken on her garage, but entrance was not gained. The judge told the group that the ceremony should impress on them the serious obligations of their different offices. ‘The honor conferred on you by the people in their election of you to office also carries a serious responsibility,” Lamneck stated. “To render service with the best interests of the people of Tuscarawas County” Lamneck insisted was the main duty of all elected officials. Common Pleas Judge Ray-; mond Rice, who attended the ceremony, repeated Lamneck’s call on the part of the officials for cooperation among themselves in an effort to make Tuscarawas County government strong. Rice emphasized that government by representation is still a new thing in history and still on trial before the world. The following were sworn in: Treasurer Victor Martinelli, Clerk of Courts George Laporte, Sheriff A. J. (Tony) Young, Engineer Charles Young, Commissioners Jacob Dummermuth and William Winters, and Recorder Ted Underwood. Missing from the ceremony was Coroner Dr. Philip Dough-' ten. Martinelli, as the elected official with the most years in office, responded to the judges’ remarks by promising that he and the other officers would try to fulfill their obligations and work in harmony as the judges had suggested. Underwood, who said late yesterday that he had not been invited to the swearing-in ceremony, held his own, with Atty. James Patrick administering the oath. He repeated it again today. Patrick’s efforts were not all1 wasted, however, since the recorder’s deputies also must take the oath. Underwood said he made his own arrangements be-fore learning of the official ceremony. What happened in the community during 1964? Well, in many ways it was a most unusual year. Looking back over the last 12 months one finds many bright spots, particularly along the road of progress. Of course, there were disappointments and heartaches, too. The Daily Reporter’s final edition for 1964 on Thursday will contain its annual review of the year’s happenings. It will comprise a general summation of the headline-making news and a month-by-month review. Many readers save this annual review for reference in future years when someone asks: “When did that happen?” Look for this concise local history compilation on Thursday. Reports Phone Prank A New Philadelphia woman told New Philadelphia police yesterday that she had received at least 7 “nuisance” telephone calls during the day. She said no one would answer when she picked up the receiver. The complainant, police said, was told to contact officials of General Telephone Co. Not So Needy! UHRICHSVILLE — One needy family in Uhrichsville apparently didn’t need the food donated to them in one of many Christmas baskets donated by thoughtful citizens of this community. Frank Atherton of Gooding’s IGA Foodliner Tuesday reported that an unidentified youth attempted to swap canned goods from a donated Christmas bas-! ket for cigarets and candy. Check Forger Being Sought UHRICHSVILLE - Investigation of a check forgery, reported yesterday morning by Ray Ballentine, manager of City Loan Co., is being made by police. Dated Dec. 19, the $40 check was made payable to John Smith and signed by Ronald Gibson. It was drawn on the Dennison First National Bank. A description of the man cashing the check was furnished by an employe. It was also reported that the man had attempted to cash it in tile United Bank, but was refused by a cashier. Police said the merchant warning system had been put into effect. By LYLE VY. PRICE SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -The Far West’s “flood of a thousand years” entered the recovery stage today as 15,000 homeless families and hundreds of stricken farms and businesses dug out from nature’s $l-billion blow’. “As far as the real emergency — that’s over, right now,” said Jim Morrison. Civil Defense spokesman at Eureka, Calif., in hard-hit Humboldt County. The report was identical in the five flood-distressed states of California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Nevada. Helicopters and jeeps brought the first outside food supplies in a week Tuesday to the last known isolated pocket — 500 persons stranded in lumbering villages west of Yreka, Calif., near the Oregon border. “Everything’s beginning to look a lot rosier,” reported Bill Sowle, Yreka Civil Defense chief. “They’re getting back down into the towns now and starting to dig out,” said Morrison. “No more people want to be evacuated. They want to be sustained where they are.” The flood, described by Department of Interior water specialists as probably the greatest ever experienced in the West, caused 19 known deaths in California and 18 in Oregon. It carved federally designated disaster areas out of northern | California, Oregon and Wash ington, where federal, local and charitable organizations are his state’s worst disaster.

Brown, a stand-in in Senate matters up to now, may also move to the center of the stage. Brown’s party, Republican, made a major bid for control of the upcoming evenly divided Senate as the special session faded away. The House completed passage of a Senate-approved measure to give Brown the power to , break tie votes in the next Sensate on legislation, j The vote, 77-34, sent the bill to the governor for signing into law and a court test of its constitutionality. With the Senate split 16-16 between Democrats and Republicans, Brown’s vote could be a big one. Until now, the lieutenant governor has acted to break ties only on Senate organization- Brewery Site Settlement For Bypass SO0 An additional $17,500 has been granted to Edgar and Ina Spring of 1269 Lakeview Dr., New Philadelphia, for the appropriation of their property on the west side of S.

Atty. Mario Corsi, a library trustee, abstained from voting on the grounds that he was legal counsel for the Amistadi estate. The property adjoins the library site on Walnut and if the purchase is approved by Reeves Banking & Trust Co., executor of the Amistadi estate, the home would continue to be rented. Library trustees stated that See LIBRARY, Page 6 Dover Adult Class Signup Times Slated A large variety of courses is being offered in the Dover Adult Education Evening School sponsored by the Dover Board of Education.

DAY BRIGHTENER You can run into debt, but from there on you have to crawl. By MALCOLM W. BROWNE SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) — Government forces recaptured the district capital of Binh Nghia today, but the Viet Cong captured two U.Fv enlisted men and wiped out nearly two companies of government troops. Two other U.S. soldiers, members of the Special Forces, were killed Tuesday night in another action 30 miles north of Saigon. Their deaths brought to 241 the number of Americans killed in combat since December 1961. Thirteen Americans now are missing. Six U.S. servicemen also were wounded in the three-day battle for Binh Nghia, 40 miles east of Saigon. Fighting still flickered Wednesday evening, but the Viet Cong was believed to have made its final onslaught on the town. At the peak of the fighting some 1,200 government troops faced about the same number of Communists, making it one of the largest engagements in Viet Nam in the past four years. Three U.S. helicopters were shot down Tuesday. The town, jammed with 6,000 Roman Catholic refugees from Communist North Viet Nam, was occupied by the Viet Cong on Dec. 5 but government forces drove them out. A powerful Viet Cong unit overran Binh Nghia again Monday. Two government Ranger * See CAPTURE, Page 6 to Common Pleas Court and a; jury trial was scheduled for Dec. 8.

Final Cancer Breakthrough May Match'70 Moon Landing By FRANK CAREY Associated Press Science Writer MONTREAL (AP) — An American cancer specialist forecasts that final breakthroughs toward controlling cancer by vaccines and miraculous curative drugs will be achieved “quicker than we’ll get to the moon” — perhaps soon after 1970. Dr. Jacob Gershon-Cohea of Philadelphia said he based that prediction on his confidence that by that time: I. Final proof will have been established that many, if not most, cancers are caused by viruses; and 2. Further development will have been made on recent discoveries in understanding the structure of the haste core of all viruses — spe cifically, the nucleic acids DNA j and RNA He said these discoveries are “probably more significant, if less appreciated by the public, than the unlocking of atomic energy.” Gershon-Cohen, a radiologist of the Albert Einstein Medical Center, spoke at a news conference prior to acting as chair-See CANCER, Pqp* IGNORES HOLLYWOOD BOXOFFICE CODE Big Duke' Extols Victory Over 'Killer' John Wayne By JAMES BACON HOLLYWOOD (AP) — Movie hero John Wayne, conqueror of Iwo Jima, thousands of movie Indians and W’estem bad men, says he now has conquered the great killer — cancer. “Big Duke,” 57, once a five-pack-a-day smoker of unfiltered cigarettes, said a recent hospital stay was for removal of a lung malignancy.
