Dover Daily Reporter (Newspaper) - February 6, 1964, Dover, Ohio f rn* \ ..•ii % M si (■ County System Favors Ilocational School, 'Reservations' Come From Other Areas Walter Hafner (left), of Strasburg, Warren Weller and Dr. Byrl Shoemaker of the State Department of Education and Titus Weaver of Newcomerstown go over a point in the survey recommendations for a county wide vocational high school. Two conclusions could be drawn from the explanation and question - answer session last night on the proposed Tuscarawas County Joint Vocational High School. First, school officials in the county system favor the high school outright. Second, those from Dover, New Philadelphia, Uhrichsville and Newcomerstown favor proceeding with the preliminaries for establishing the school, but have certain reservations and unanswered questions as to participation. Nearly IOO school administrators and school board members attended the meeting held in New Philadelphia’s Welty Auditorium. County Supt. W. E. Laws presided. Introduced were Dr. Byrl Shoemaker, director of the vocational education division, and Warren Weiler, supervisor of vocational agriculture, both of the State Department of Education. Dr. Shoemaker did most of the talking and explained the recommendations contained in last fall’s survey. Points covered included: All of the county districts participate in the joint vocational school district; 10th, lith and 12th Graders take part in a vocational agriculture at the school, with freshmen remaining in the local school agriculture programs; development of a technical school in agriculture; Establishment of courses in 5 areas of business education, such as high skill stenographer and secretarial program and data processing; 9 courses in the trade and industrial field, such as auto mechanics, welding, dental assistant, cosmetology etc. In the recommendation for a distributive education setup (on-the-job training), a statement was included that the school should be located in the Uhrichs-ville-Tuscarawas area. When questioned on that point, Shoemaker stated that location of the school would be up to the 22-member steering committee and should not be considered as a recommendation. Shoemaker also pointed out that there is no basis according to the survey, for vocational home economics at present, but that suggestions for a service or pilot program in this area would be welcome. Laws reviewed a proposed cost sheet for the school, with a price tag of $1,341,735. This includes building, equipment, site, fees, etc., for the 4 recommended areas of study plus a kitchen, cafeteria, heating plant, toilet facilities and the like. Shoemaker was unable to provide the answer to several questions regarding state and federal financial participation. Final’ plans, including facilities, courses and administrative control, still must be approved by the steering committee prior HOME EDITION The Daily Reporter Serving Over 10,700 Families VOL. 60.

On another question. Shoemaker said that if the 3 city school districts would not take part in a vocational school, the tax base for the remainder of the county would not be sufficient to carry a sound vocational program. Richard Werner of New Philadelphia asked what would happen to existing programs in the schools if the vocational school was approved. Shoemaker replies that industrial arts would remain in the local school, with continuance of machine shop and auto mechanics up to the local boards. “The vocational school wrould cover other areas or broaden present ones,” Shoemaker added. Atty. Richard Hanhart of Dover asked what would happen to the smaller schools in the county if a large number of students enrolled in the vocational school. No answer was given, but Shoemaker pointed out that one method of determining the vocational school enrollment would be a propor- See VOCATIONAL, Page 9 Army Units Alerted For 'Bania Crisis TUSKEGEE, Ala. (AP) -Army Infantry units have been placed on alert at Ft. Benning, Ga., for possible use in Alabama’s latest integration crisis, The Associated Press learned today. Elements of the 2nd Infantry Division and the lith Air Assault Group were alerted Wednesday for movement into east Alabama within 30 minutes, sources at Columbus, Ga., said. The lith employs helicopters almost exclusively. Officially the Army neither confirmed nor denied the alert. The alert was the first development of this nature under the administration of Presid eat Johnson who is faced with his first showdown on racial issues. Mayor James Rea of Notasulga, a small east Alabama town, closed all its schools today because of a fire in the water filter system which left the town short of water. At nearby Shorter, six Negroes attended classes again at another school integrated Wednesday. A boycott predicted for that school apparently failed to materialize.

The village does not presently have a sewage disposal plant and the permit from the State Health Assn. to dump sewage into streams is currently up for its yearly renewal. The state association has recommended investigation of a possible disposal system. A special meeting was set for Feb. 17 when consulting engineers will explain the systems in greater detail. Marshall Robert Huprich outlined police activities for the month and purchase of new equipment was discussed.

Myron Yoder, also attended. CR Activity Is Launched At Nc'town NEWCOMERSTOWN — Clyde Dansby who appeared before Village Council here Monday night and presented a letter requesting council’s cooperation in securing equal job opportunities for Negores, said today that every Negro home in Tuscarawas County will be contacted next week to sign a petition against “blackface acts” in public performances. Dashy, who said he was not representing any Civil Rights organization, pointed out the petition will not advocate any picketing or overt activity. “I feel it is necessary for Negroes in the area to realize that such performances directly hurt the Negro in job opportunities,” he said. “In Newcomerstown, I feel the situation can best be settled by local residents, without, ‘outside help.* The residents have become unduly excited by the activities and should understand that there is no movement to force employers to hire Negroes. But we do want to receive equal consideration for employment.” According to Dansby, Mayor James A. Tufford has agreed to consider a meeting between Negroes and local officials to try to settle any difficulties. Dansby, an employe of Keith’s Western Auto Store here, said he had not been contacted by any organization, but if the need should arise, he would ask for help. “However,” he added, “we feel there are enough fair-minded people here to settle this problem locally.” Votes By Proxy Win Co-op Fight By JOE WOERDEMAN Daily Reporter Staff Writer Using 51 proxy votes, Gilbert Ladrach, Stone Creek dairy farm* er, engineered election of 2 directors of the Tuscarawas County Farm Bureau Co-Op Assn. Inc. and approval of a resolution recommending that the board terminate a chicken-egg business contract as quickly as possible. The resolution’s approval highlighted a heated session which was touched off when President Carl Bender called for new business during the organization’s 29th annual meeting in York School. John Segrist of Dundee rose J. Arthur Adams, operations director of the Ohio Farm Bureau Cooperative Assn. in Columbus, was principal speaker at the annual Tuscarawas County Farm Bureau Coop meeting last night. Carl Bonder (standing), local farm bureau president, points out to Adams some facts in one of the annual reports given during the session. to introduce the resolution that, in its first wording, demanded outrightly that the chicken contract be canceled as soon as possible, without penalty to association members, and that the board be prohibited from entering into any such contract for business that would be in competition with association members. The motion was seconded by Ladrach. Ladrach’s son, Paul, a nonvoting assocation member, then took the floor, to identify himself as the writer of the letter which appeared in last Saturday’s issue of The Daily Reporter, warning the 2,100 Class A common shareholders in the Coop their organization was using their invested money to compete with them in the poultry business.

By James Davis Daily Reporter City Editor (Third In A Series) The “mad, mad social whirl” that some adults find so necessary has filtered down to the early teens and probably with more impact than any other area covered in the Dover Junior-Senior High PTA Committee report. Reason for the complicated effects of social parties in the early teens is simple—there are so many. The pace is set by an “in group” (for lack of a better name).

This tempo is picked up by those who cannot afford the whirl, but do so to spite themselves. If for an instant you think that the party circuit is not an circuit group and await the hue and cry. Mothers must assume the larger share of the responsibility of the party bookings since they naturally are more social conscious. Fathers often end up as the “mean old man” for eventually putting the lid on the 3 and 4 nights out a week. The possibilities are endless when it comes to parties and dances. There are class parties, slumber parties, class dances, school dances, PTA-sponsored dances, birthday parties, mixed parties, stag parties, etc., etc. Parties and dances, when properly supervised, are fun, enjoyable and a lot of other See ‘PARTY PACE’, Page 9 contract had been signed by the Co-op’s 7-member board, by which it furnished one farmer with 12,000 hens, 85 pounds of feed per bird per year at approximately $70 a ton, and guaranteed the farmer 8 cents per bird per month, plus giving him an incentive plan. The farmer had invested nearly $40,000 of his own money in building and equipment.) “Here’s another freedom gone by,’* Ladrach told some 200 members who pressed into the school auditorium, “if you fail to approve this resolution and let the board use your invested money to compete against you in your own business.” Ladrach stated he had contacted a large number of the 2,100 Class A common share-holders who can vote at the annual meeting and had brought 51 proxy votes to the meeting. Bender challenged the resolution as first worded and was supported in his ruling it improper by Farm Bureau counsel, George Morrison of Columbus.
