Luthy Takes Ping, Out Of Promotion A circular object, weifht just a few ounces, caused a flurry of interest during Dover City Council meeting Monday night. The object is a ping pong ball.

The balls, according to spokesman Kenneth Rider of Montgomery Ward, would contain numbers which coincide with those on special store bargains. But Mayor C. LeMoyne Luthy, standing firm on a position taken earlier in the day on the request to stage the “‘drop’ over Dover, stated he would refuse such a permit. The refusal stems from Section 97.01 of city ordinances dealing with advertising by handbills, placards, etc. without permit: “It shall be unlawful for any person, persons, firm or (Torpor ation to throw, cast or distribute any handbills, circulars, dodgers, placards, samples or other advertising matter in or upon any step, door step, porch, veranda, grounds or premises of any person or firm or corporation or upon the streets, avenues or alleys of the city for the pur-See LUTHY, Page 7 Action Deterred On School Issue The Tuscarawas County Board of Education deferred action at last night’s meeting on a request from the legal counsel far the Union Local Citizens’ Committee asking that the board sign a proposed journal entry to be approved by Common Pleas Court.

Pupil Social Life Parental Puzzle By James Davis Daily Reporter City Editor Parentage is an important profession, but no test of fitness. Some parents are strong, some good, some weak and some are not so good. The test of fitness comes when parentage is imposed for its sole interest—children. Parents incur the obligation of Teenagers walk hand in hand—to where? giving their children a set of values. Not the inflexible “do’s and don’t’s," but rather principles by which they can live. During the maturing years, 6th through 12 Grades, boys and girls develop the basis for their behavior in later years through social, spiritual, emotional, physical and mental experiences. Like little streams moving merrily on and ultimately turning into powerful rivers, so it is with those in their early teens. Most are moving through a “social life" that has parents shaking their heads in astonishment and crossing their fingers hoping the antics of the 1960’s will not turn their merry courses into a flood of trouble. The joys of parents are secret. (Editor’s Note: This is the first of a series on a survey conducted by the Dover Junior-Senior High FTA Family Life Committee into parental expression regarding dating, dress, parties and family life of 7th, 8th and 9th Graders. Purpose of the survey is to provide a guide for the Junior High Student Council to adopt a code of behavior.) And so are their griefs and fears. Some wait. And hope. A group of Dover Junior High parents, in cooperation with school officials, started doing something about the perplexing situation last year. The survey that resulted from their concern can have real See SOCIAL LIFE, Page 12 Ohio Jaycee Head To Talk At DSA Event The Dover Junior Chamber of Commerce announced preliminary plans last night for the annual Bosses Night and Distinguished Service Award presentation banquet to be held March IO in Union Country Club.

Drane Co. of Cleveland for supplementing the city codified ordinances through 1963. The lawmakers also supported action last week by the Itover Planning Commission which denied requests for zoning changes by Dr. L. D. Bower for construction of an office building on Union Ave., and by Bella Vaughn and Sam and Kathryn Urfer on Iron Ave. Councilman-at-large Eugene Bowers told last night’s audience, which included a group of American Problems students of Dover High, that it was “not the intent of the present Council to spot zone and that is why we are supporting the Planning Board’s decision." Mayor C. LeMoyne Luthy pointed out that further consideration is being given by the Planning Commission for a change in R-4 classifically for professional activities. Dr. Bower spoke in behalf of his request, pointing out the “grip" imposed by zoning regulations on moves, while Arthur Dell Sr., whose property abuts the proposed building, said he couldn’t understand the commission’s ruling in light of approval from those in the “acceptable’* vicinity.
