The glowing commendation stemmed from a survey of the secondary school setup made in December. Besides continuing Dover High on the list of approved schools by the department, Fox stated: “This school is making commendable progress toward desirable educational goals. With continued leadership by the superintendent of schools and his staff and community support there is a prospect for an educational program which is ever increasing in quality and effectiveness.” His report, in part, reads: “We were pleased to observe the alert and capable leadership which is provided by the principals of both the junior and senior high. The daily program is efficiently organized and directed. There is desire and willingness to explore new and improved educational practices in order that the school can more fully meet the needs of the pupils. “Many significant improvements have been made in the facilities, program and organization of the school. The recent building addition and the extensive renovation of existing facilities have provided a school plant which efficiently and comfortably accommodates the enrollment and enlarged educa-cational program. Facilities in every area have been, or are being, modernized and equipped to meet the instructional goals of the school. “The program of studies is comprehensive in purpose and organization. Curriculum development is receiving increased attention and direction. Recent additions include the reading program, art, advanced foreign languages, seminars in social studies and mathematics, exploratory programs in industrial arts, and a 4-year program of physical education. The work of curriculum committees in program revision is observed in the English, social studies, and junior high science areas. Other fields are under study. Adminis trators and teachers deserve encouragement and continuing support in these efforts to update and improve the instructional program. “Classroom instruction, as observed, is conducted in an effective manner.

Rutledge of 252 Fair Ave. NW, New Philadelphia, has announced her retirement from service in the County Auditor’s Office, effective Feb. 29. “I had hoped to work for another year,” Miss Rutledge said today, “and I thought I was going to do so until I received a letter from Auditor Donald Kinsey last week, asking me to retire. “We had discussed the matter,” she said, “and I thought it was agreed that I would continue work for one more year.” The county employe, who has worked for 42 years and 3 months in several county offices, said she had contacted the personnel department in Columbus, and was informed that she did not have to retire. “But I figure when it is apparent someone See RETIRE, Pare 2 last week. Lawver stated that thievery has become a real problem since last September. He also said he feels there is an organized ring doing most of the stealing and that it will take participation from the other students to catch the gang. Supt. D. D. Roeder said he realizes a definite problem exists but that the passbook system recently instituted to keep students out of the halls between classes is working and if students would keep their lockers locked, much of the problem would be eliminated. He also stated “98 per cent of the kids in Newcomerstown High School are fundamentally honest. Half a dozen kids are ruining the reputation of 1400.” Both Roeder and Lawver stated that they have had trouble getting the cooperation from the county board and that it is very difficult to get a probation officer to come here when there is need for him. Lawver said it would help him perform his duties more effectively if every theft were reported immediately. Carl Krebs Jr., president of the board, said that more study ON THE INSIDE is needed on how to cope with the problem and more cooperation is necessary from everyone to solve this problem. He assured Lawver that the board would cooperate with him. It was decided that Mrs. Medley should be reimbursed since See THEFT RING, Page 2 Around The World .. ..........5 Dear Abby ......... .........17 Doctor Crane ....... .........17 Doctor Writes ..... .........17 Goren On Bridge ... .........15 Hospital News ..... ..........5 Obituaries .......... ..........2 Sports ............. ......11-12 Women’s Pages ........8-9 Your Horoscope..... .........15 Heart Attack Claims Dover Area Man, 3 8 Lyle M.

Dawson Lane Traffic Debate 'Clogs' Philo Council Work Olmstead Named New Philadelphia Board of Education member Earl Olmsted has been selected as its representative to the 22-man steering •ommiitee for the proposed area vocational high school Argument over the routing of traffic on the 2-block section of Dawson Lane NW prolonged an otherwise tame New Philadelphia Council meeting Monday night. The traffic, safety and health committee, acting on a petition submitted to it, recommended a resolution changing the traffic control order so as to make the lane a one-way street from 4th to 3rd St The petition itself had asked Dawson Lane, which runs south of the new Bureau of Unemployment Compensation building, be made one-way from 3rd to 4th St., with a traffic signal placed j at 4th St Ward Bauer, Rev. Russell Bankes and Mrs. Paul Harding, all of Dawson Lane, were present at the meeting to push their appeal, contending the lane was too narrow for 2-way traffic and that school buses, which use the lane for a turn-around from 4th to 3rd St., and other traffic into the BUC building, was tearing up their lawns and driveways. Gooier Watkins, who heads the I traffic committee, said the signal light at 4th St. was overruled because It would tend to jam up traffic coming from 4th and Ray Sts. past the high school. No thought had been actually given to the restriction of heavy traffic from the lane, he admitted, nor to the matter of parking, but he suggested parking be limited to only the south side of the lane Safety Director Joseph Fren-zel objected strongly to making Dawson Lane one way at all, until a traffic survey warranted it. He stated that his personal check showed there was only light traffic on the street. “What will prevent other persons on other streets asking to See TRAFFIC, Pate 3 Tough Senate Battle Looms Before Okay By JOHN BECKLER WASHINGTON (AP) - The House has approved the civil rights bill in an overwhelming vote hailed by President Johnson as “an historic step forward for the cause of dignity in America.” It now faces a tough- Main provisions of the Civil Rights bill are outlined in a special Page 3 fact presentation. !'V.    > •    'W,.    M    .    Si er battle in the Senate where Southerners hope to whittle it down with talk. As turned out by the House in a 290-130 roll call Monday night, the bill amounts to the most sweeping civil rights legislation in history. Southern efforts to water it down were crushed at every turn by a coalition of Republicans and Northern Democrats. But in the Senate with its different rules of debate, the Southerners hold the weapon of a filibuster and hope to weaken the measure by forcing a compromise. Girding for the battle ahead, Senate Democratic leader Mike Mansfield outlined parliamentary moves Monday designed to delay Senate action on civil rights until the tax cut bill clears Congress, probably by the end of the month. Johnson, in a statement, paid tribute to the bipartisan nature of the triumph in the House, declaring: “It represents the culmination of months of hard work by men of good will in both parties. “Now the task is before the Senate. I hope the same spirit of nonpartisanship will prevail there to assure passage of this bill guaranteeing the fundamental rights of all Americans.” Voting for the bill in the House were 152 Democrats and 138 Republicans. Voting against it were 96 Democrats and 34 Republicans. The bill is aimed at ending racial discrimination in employment, public accommodations, voting, schools and other public facilities, and in federally aided programs. A new section added just before passage would create a community relations service to mediate racial disputes. Weathervane YESTERDAY High 32    Low    13 Elsewhere In U.S. High Low Pr.

Jobs Will Eliminate Need For New Taxes, Rhodes Says DAY JC BRIGHTENER Husband: "It s tough to grow old alone. My wife hasn’t had a birthday in 6 years." By HARRY YOCKEY Editor of Daily Reporter There will be no state income tax in Ohio if Gov. James A. Rhodes has any say about it. He made that pledge last night in addressing 350 at an industrial recognition dinner in the American Legion Hall at Massillon. There has been pressure for a state income tax to “gobble up | the differential when federal income taxes are cut,” Rhodes said. “But there will be no such tax as long as I am governor. Economically, we cannot stand it.” The dinner was the first in a Tax Extension Deadline Okayed The Ohio Board of Tax Appeals has finally approved County Treasurer Victor Martinelli’s request for an extension for the payment of real estate taxes from Jan. 20 to Feb. 21. Martinelli, who made the request for the extension last week, today revealed it had been granted by the tax board as of Feb. 7. In its letter of approval, the board ordered that the extension be pub!ivied by advertisement, so as to advise real property owners of the time when penalties shall attach to delinquent payments. series throughout Ohio and was sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, Massillon Industrial Development Foundation and Massillon Trades and Labor Council. Speaking for the Council, President Robert J. Siffrin Jr. said: “Although we of the labor movement have not always been in accord with the state administration, we cannot help but agree with it in this case. The program for economic stimulation outlined by the governor and his cabinet should lead only to a better Ohio. We agree, too, that profit is not a dirty word.” “Ohio is almost round like a saucer,” the governor said. “The stronger the hub, the stronger the wheel. Our hub Is economic development because unemployment, racial tension, all our social ills with mental and penal institutions filled, revolve around employment. “We have 2 kinds of people— the productive and the unproductive, the taxpayers and the nontaxpayers. You can’t join a union unless you have a job and you can’t pay union dues if you’re on relief. “No one wants to be on relief. Everyone wants a job. All we’re trying to do is get Ohio moving again in this area. “A Fortune survey of 1,000 top industries showed 76 per cent of See RHODES, Page 2 Tickets Available For 'Molly Brown' Tickets for the March 5 opening performance of “The Unsinkable Molly Brown” are now available from cast members.
