Dist. Judge Joe B. Brown overruled him. Chief defense attorney Melvin Belli made Hie motion after Judge Brown ruled against him on two other counts: A motion that would have required Hie state to turn over to the defense all its evidence against Ruby.

See RUBY, Page 9 ★ Oswald's Mom Has New 'Data' WASHINGTON (AP) - Mrs. Marguerite Oswald took “new evidence’’ before the Warren commission today which she says will prove that her son, Lee Harvey Oswald, did not fire the shots that killed John F. Kennedy. The 56 - year - old practical nurse, who asked for a chance to appear before the presidential tribunal investigating the Kennedy assassination, is expected to contradict testimony made last week by Oswald’s 22-year-old widow. Marina Oswald told the commission, and later a news conference, that she did not like to believe that her husband killed President Kennedy Nov. 22 in Dallas, but the facts would not permit her to reach any other conclusion.

Co. hi New Philadelphia, which began Friday, ended Saturday afternoon with an “overwhelming” vote by members of Local 6461, United Steelworkers of America, ratifying a tentative one-year contract. Harold Knapp of Dover, subdistrict director of the USW, AFL-CIO, said details of the agreement would be worked out sometime this week with plant negotiators. The contract, the first at IF Mfg., a division of Ridge Tool Co. of Elyria, was the result of talks which began last September when USW won a runoff representation election with the International Association of Machinists. Terms of the agreement, which will run until May 1,1965, include a union shop, retention of the existing cost-sharing bonus program and improved vacation pay, insurance and other benefits. The present pay setup for the 160-plus production employes was left undisturbed for the year. Knapp said pickets were withdrawn from the plant entrances as soon as the vote was counted. Earl Ellwood of RD I, Stone Creek, is the local’s first president.

Using their heavy majority to stifle Southern talk against the bill, the civil rights forces rammed through a debate limiting motion by 211-73. Under it all debate on the controversial job equality section will end at I p.m. (EST). But foes of the bill, chiefly southerners, could still cause difficulties and delay in reaching a final roll-call vote. The House met early and was prepared to sit late in an effort to get the 19-part bill to a final vote. The biggest question was what final form the employment section might take. The Southern opposition made only a token effort to knock the section out of the bill during a 10-hour session Saturday and concentrated with some success on amendments designed to make it unwieldy, if not unworkable. They also succeeded in using up so much time the leadership was forced to abandon its See DEBATE, Page I Junkyard License Forms Available Owners of junkyards outside municipalities of Tuscarawas County can now obtain their new license forms and pay the required fees at the auditor’s office, Chief Deputy Auditor Glenn Shutt announced today. By the new sections 4735.05 to 4737.11 of the new Ohio Revised Code, no person may operate or maintain a junkyard outside a municipality unless he has first obtained a license. Fees for licenses are $25, Shutt explained. These licenses expire on Jan. I following the date of issue. The licenses may be renewed from year to year, upon payment of a $10 fee to the auditor’s office. Since this is the first year for the issuing of such licenses, Shutt said, and the forms for the licenses were late in arriving at the auditor's office, no penalty will be levied against late applicants.

ARBOGAST WASHINGTON (AP) - The tax cut bill which will save taxpayers more than $11 billion yearly moves at full speed today to a House-Senate conference and could be signed into law within three weeks. The final leg of the bill’s long Capitol Hill journey starts when conferees representing the Senate and House huddle to consider more than 150 differences in the tax cut versions passed by the two branches. Although the Senate and House are $500 million apart on over-all reductions, most of their differences are considered minor. Not in controversy are the cuts for individual and corporate taxpayers. Taxpayers subject to withholding deductions will have an estimated $800 million more in their pay envelopes every month. The extra money for 80 million individuals and 550,000 business taxpayers is expected by the administration to give the national economy a shot in the arm to inoculate it against a business slump. The Senate passed the bill Friday ahead of schedule. Its version called for an $11.6 billion reduction. The House measure passed Sept. 25 provided for cuts of about $11.1 billion. Most reductions in both plans would be effective retroactively to Jan. I of this year. Somewhere between the two figures, the conferees hope to reach agreement before Feb. 22, which would leave the Senate and the House six working days to consider the compromise and send it to the President before March I. The President wants quicker action. He would like to have the lower withholding rates go into effect as soon as possible. The bookkeeping machinery to do this takes an estimated two weeks or more to get into high gear. Wages and salaries are now subject to 18 per cent withholding rates. The House voted to drop this to 15 per cent for this year and 14 per cent starting next Jan. I. The Senate, at the President’s prodding, voted to drop the rate to 14 per cent immediately to put more spending money into workers’ pockets. The Senate and House voted to cut individual rates from their present 20 to 91 per cent range to 14 to 70 per cent. Two-thirds of the reduction would become effective this year and one-third next year. Both branches voted to reduce existing corporate rates from 52 per cent to 50 per cent this year and to 48 per cent next year. 2 Stark Men Hospitalized In Auto Crash Charles Edwards, 19, of East Sparta and Paul Tansek, 19, of Canton are reported as “good” today in Twin City Hospital following an accident at 2:30 Sunday morning on Route 36 and County Road 63, east of Dennison. State patrolmen said an auto, driven by Edwards, went out of control and overturned when he tried to make a turn onto the county road at “excessive speed.” Edwards, who was charged with speed excessive for road conditions, suffered multiple face lacerations while Tansek, a passenger, suffered a possible back injury and a concussion. They were taken to the hospital in a Lindsey Funeral Home ambulance. Kenneth Host, 26, of Bowerston sustained a bloody nose at 1:50 Sunday morning when his car overturned on County Road 64, north of Uhrichsville. Host was cited for reckless operation. Patrolmen cited John Bailey, 24, of RD 2, New Philadelphia, for failure to yield the right-of-way after an accident at 9:50 Saturday morning when his pickup truck collided with one driven by Henry Ellwood, 62, of New Philadelphia, at the junction of Township Roads 211 and 384 and Route 39. In an accident at 2:30 Sunday afternoon on Route 212, east of Route 8, a car drvien by Betty Burkhart, went into a ditch after slowing down for 2 pedestrians. Patrolmen said the young lady’s car, before going into the ditch, forced a car off the road that was driven by Raymond Sax, 32, of Akron. Sax was cited for failure to transfer registration. Midvale Man To Be Charged With Assault A malicious assault charge was expected to be filed this afternoon in Southern District Court at Uhrichsville against Delbert Haver, 37, of Midvale in connection with the Feb. 5 beating of a maid in Green’s Hotel at Dennison. Chief Sheriff Deputy John Barlock said at noon today that Haver admitted the attack in a signed statement. The reported confession followed 5 days of investigation and canceled a “pickup” broadcast for Jack Mains of RD I, Uhrichsville, who disappeared from the hotel shortly after the attack. Barlock, who has been aiding Dennison police in the investigation, said the “break” came shortly before noon following 2 hours of questioning in the sheriff’s office.
