NO. 145.    22    PAGES.Largest Circulation In Tuscarawas County Dover-New Philadelphia, Ohio, Thursday, December 31, 1964 HOME EDITION ★ NOW READ BY 12,000 FAMILIES PHONE 4-2167    7    CENTS Coasts 11964 Was 'Good' To Tuscarawas County Misery Revived SAN FRANCISCO (AP) —I Thousands of victims of the billion-dollar flood that struck five Western states had little to celebrate this New Year’s Eve, except that they were alive. Adding to their misery, snow, rain and hail pummeled Washington, Oregon, northern California, Idaho and Nevada, and the Weather Bureau predicted the storm would last through Friday. A steady downpour hampered rescue and reconstruction efforts of 125,000 workers in the five states. The most critical spot was in northern California’s Klamath National Forest where 500 persons were cut off from the outside by washed-out roads and four days of snow that has left three to four feet of pack on the1 ground. Snow continued to fall in Yre-1 ka where helicopter rescue op-1 orations have been halted since’ Wednesday by the storm. The year 1964 could be termed a good yea! for Tuscarawas County. There were the inevitable tragedies and personal losses, but 1964 was marked by a series of successes and changes with countrywide implications. Biggest news story of the year was the series of school consolidations, which reduced the number of systems in the county from 16, including the 2 parochial schools, to just 9. Voters approved 3 of the consolidations and school board action accomplished 2 more. Voted were: The Twin City District from Uhrichsville, Dennison and Union Local; Southern Local from Gnadenhutten-Clay, Tuscara-W’as-Warwick, Salem-Washington and Goshen Local, and Stone Creek-Jefferson’s annexation to New Philadelphia, accepted by the latter board. Board action resulted in the merger of Baltic and Garaway Districts and the shifting of the bulk of Rush Local to the Twin City District and the remainder to Southern Local. All actions stemmed from State Department of Education high school survey reports released early in the year which called for consolidations and improvements in the county’s education system. In other education news, W. E. Laws stepped down as county school superintendent, a post he held for more than 25 years. He was succeeded by Dr. Linton Honaker. A steering committee was formed to draft plans for a countrywide vocational school, but it became sidetracked in the wake of the school mergers. Kent State University’s Academic Center at New Philadelphia continued a steady enrollment increase and it was suggested that plans be readied for a permanent center. The advent of Interstate Route 77 and the business and industrial growth in the county also made a tremendous impact in 1964. The first 8 miles of the super 4-lane highway opened to traffic in mid-October and Gov. James Rhodes, attending the ribbon-cutting ceremony, announced that the other 19 miles of Interstate 77 in the county would be either completed or under construction by 1967. Work also was started on the Route 250 and 8 New Philadelphia bypass to the proposed Twin City bypass of Route 36. Topping the list of several industrial accomplishments was the location of a Bobbie Brooks Inc. women’s apparel plant in a building financed by countywide donations. More than $120,000 was pledged and the firm now has more than IOO employes, mostly women. The push came from the County Community Improvement Corp. Empire-Reeves Steel Corp. officials announced a $3.5-million expansion at its Reeves Steel & Mfg. plant in Dover. Shenango-Penn acquired a Columbus firm and at the same time strengthened its competitive position. Other county industries continued capital improvement projects and many added new facilities. The fabulous $2-miIlion Atwood Inn project was started and by year’s end was far enough along to assure a June I opening. Harry Humphries opened a $625,000 truck service center as the first major investment in the anticipated development along Interstate 77. Two new service stations opened for business at the Green Gables Interchange and a major motel chain reportedly is set to erect a $l-million unit there at year’s end.

Congo Horror Related By ROBIN MANNOCK LEOPOLDVILLE, the Congo (AP) — Rebel warriors performed a savage war dance of death on the stomach of American missionary William Mc* Chesney until he died, refugees said today. McChesney, the sixth American missionary to be killed by Communist- backed rebels in the northeastern Congo in the past two months, was trampled to death at Wamba during almost a week of bloodletting last November. After McChesney had died of internal bleeding, the rebels continued to vent their fury on his corpse, the refugees said and then flung his mutilated body into the Wamba River. McChesney, 28, was from Phoenix, Ariz. This tale of horror was pieced together from white hostages of the rebels rescued at Wamba two days ago.
