Begins Production Of New Traction Device By LARRY FROELICH Daily Reporter Staff Writer It may not be a great milestone in the field of medical technology, but a new device manufactured by Snyder Mfg. Co. of New Philadelphia certain ly will be praised by patients suffering from arm and leg fractures and spinal injuries, not to mention the doctors, nurses and interns who can devote their times and energy to other hospital tasks. The device is a new and revolutionary, self-contained traction unit that maintains a constant predetermined tension throughout its period of use on patients. The Snyder Vari-Trac is a product of more than 2 years of research and experimentation by Snyder Laboratories, a division of Snyder Mfg. “We are not the original thinkers, but we did develop the concept into a working product and are the manufacturers and sell ers/' state Charles L. Deeds, vice president. The Initial idea came from an Illinois man. However, Snyder officials made arrangements with him to expand on the invention, by assisting in the design, setting up the manufacturing process and establishing the selling techniques. Vari-Trac has been clinically tested 30 months in various hospitals in Ohio, but primarily in BIRTHDAY.

Ohio College Needs Survey Will Be Made Cyprus Spurns Peace Troops By HAL MCCLURE NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) — President Makarios today rejected the British - American proposal to land an international peace force on embattled Cyprus and will take the matter to the United Nations immediately, authoritative diplomatic sources said. Sporadic fighting persisted between Greek and Turkish Cypriots. There was no immediate official statement from Makarios or from U.S. Undersecretary of State George Ball, who ended three days of discussions in Nicosia. Ball flew to Ankara to report to Turkish officials on his talks with Cypriot leaders and to urge restraint on Turkey. He will then go to Athens on a similar mission to Greek authorities. Makarios is believed to be ready to ask for a U.N. Security Council resolution which would prevent any one nation from intervening in Cyprus and to protect Cyprus’ territorial in tegrity. This would be aimed primarily at Turkey. Diplomats said the United States and Britain believe a solution must be found to settle the differences on the island which might possibly lead to a war between Greece and Turkey, who are allies in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Presidential palace sources said the Greek Cypriot leader insisted that any international force be under control of the U.N. Security Council. The U.S.-British plan called for an Atlantic Alliance army of 10,000 men with about 2,000 U.S. sodiers to keep peace. There was no reaction to the hint from high Washington sources that Makarios wants an international peace force of British Commonwealth nations excluding American soldiers. Cyprus has been a commonwealth member since independence from Britain in 1960. Greece and Turkey have treaties to defend Cyprus from aggression and both keep small garrisons on Cyprus for that purpose. County Has Ohio's First Resident Agent Of BCI Tuscarawas County sheriff headquarters has been chosen by the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation as the “base of operations” for its first resident-agent.

Through various projects already sponsored by the group, the club’s treasury warrants their going ahead and making reservations at the William Sloan YMCA which is located near the Empire State Building. Among the projects being planned are a rummage sale sometime in April, * dance and the presentation af gym allows for civic gatherings at a nominal fee. Seith, who has been with the state-supported bureau for 5 years, stated that BCI deals with the investigation of scientific evidence on a small scale at the Federal Bureau of Investigation does on a national basis.

WHALEN NEW YORK (AP)—Five Cosa Nostra “families” are said to control the rackets in the New York area. The Justice Department is zeroing in on the one authorities say is headed by Thomas (Three-Fingers Browm) Luchese. U.S. Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy was here today as the frontal assault on the crime syndicate by a federal grand jury gained momentum. About two dozen of Luchese’s underlings have appeared this week. Syndicate links with a ring of call girl-housewives in Long Island suburbs were disclosed Thursday by Dist. Atty. William Cahn of Nassau County.

Luchese, 63, is a short, dapper, garment industry executive who lives in a mansion on Long Island’s South Shore. He has always maintained he has See RFR, Page 6 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP)-Ac-tion to determine Ohio’s educational needs and what must be done to meet them has been taken by the state controlling board in releasing $195,000 to hire consultants to draft a master plan for higher education. The Ohio Board of Regents will hire the Academy for Educational Development, New York to make a study of the state’s higher education facilities, policies and needs. A schedule submitted by the academy calls for typed copies of the plan to be ready by Nov. 15, with all information for each state educational institution to be ready by July 15. Among other things, the plan will outline the whole structure for higher education in relation to needs, whether curricula offerings fulfill needs, quality of faculty, financial needs and policies and functions and staffing of the board of regents. Regents Chairman Harold W. Oyster told the controlling board Thursday that Ohio’s higher education institutions face a record increase in the number of students the next two years. In listing the various factors the board must know in supervising the higher education program, he said, “We need to know what it costs to educate students in the various fields before we can logically develop a budget to present to the legislature.” Funds to hire the consultants will come from $1 million appropriated from the $250 million bond issue approved by voters last November. In other action, the board: —Authorized the Department of Natural Resources to buy 303.9 acres of additional land for $28,900 for the Salt Fork Lake project in Guernsey County. —Approved tile purchase of 8.51 acres in Hocking Hills State Forest for $9,500 to provide parking space near Ash Cave. —Held up release of $185,000 for plans or a $2 million chemistry building and $85,000 for plans for a $1.2 million earth science building at Miami University. The unversity was asked to revise the requests because of the possibility that it will not get as much federal aid as expected. —Released planning money of $720,000 for a junior exhibit multi-purpose building, $240,000 for judging arena and $250,000 for rehabilitation of the Coliseum at the Ohio State Fairgrounds. Illinois. “We have finalized the plans and have been producing for 2 wfeeks,” Deeds pointed out. The traction device was exhibited at the recent American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons Convention in Chicago and was “quite warmly accepted as a new concept in traction,” Deeds added.    v The degree of traction is governed by the interchangeable reels that permit 6, 8, IO and See TRACTION, Page 2 Snyder's Vari-Trac provides constant traction with easily adaptable "pull" reels.

(AP)-Floyd A. Edens, 53, who lay undiscovered for three days after his car plunged 1,000 feet down a near-vertical cliff, remained unconscious today in a hospital. He was discovered by a rescue party Thursday morning at the bottom of a cliff in a remote area in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. His rescuers said a single groan led them to where he lay, 200 feet from where his car came to rest after hurtling off narrow Mosquito Ridge Road high above. The Oakland man, they said, was on his way from a driver’s test in Auburn to the funnel site where he worked—in Hell Hole Canyon. Capt. Richard Langer of the highway patrol said he believed this is what happened: Edens, a worker on the Middle Fork American River water project, left Auburn sometime Monday. He was traveling the narrow road 40 miles east of the city when he lost control of his car. As the car tumbled end over end, Edens was thrown out about 500 feet from the cliff’s edge. Blood was found nearby and it appeared he was trying to crawl back up when he slipped See FOUND, Pare 6 Gooch Is Given Term In Pen 800 At Rally A crowd, estimated between 800 and 900, attended last night’s spiritual rally in Dover High auditorium led by Rev.

Gooch, 45, of 35V2 W. Slingluff Ave., Dover, entered a guilty plea to the charge of malicious assault this morning when he appeared before Judge Raymond Rice. On Jan. 22 he had pleaded “not guilty” to 2 counts, one for assault with intent to rob and another for stealing $600. Prosecutor Harlan Spies, after Gooch’s change of plea, gained the court’s permission to file an information on the charge of malicious assault. In the court maneuvers that quickly followed, Gooch waived his right to Grand Jury and a 1-day delay following the new information and agreed to accept the court’s sentence. Spies, in his new information, stated that last Dec. ll Gooch had assaulted his 72-year-old father, Thomas, with the intention to do bodily harm. Unlike the original charges on which Gooch had been indicted, there was no mention of intent to rob or the stealing of money. Gooch was released from the Ohio Penitentiary last September after serving a term for breaking into Barney’s Tavern in New Philadelphia and breaking out of the Tuscarawas County Jail while waiting for a hearing on the breakin case. Spies asked the court to nullify the original charges. He informed the court that it might have been difficult to prove that the defendant had the intention of robbing his father, even though he took the money. Gooch also informed Rice that he would return the money which had been held by the sheriff since his arrest. Ex-Dennisonian Leaves $7,073 To Wooster Hospital WOOSTER—Community Hospital was the recipient of a $7 ,073 check from the estate of the late Norah B.

Born in Dennison, Miss Robinette became a dressmaker, operating a shop on Main St., : Zanesville, prior to moving to here, where she designed and built her own home and continued her work as a steam-stress. Moore, who had know Miss Robinette all his life, told the hospital board of governors: “No matter what others might do for her, she always did a little more for them. “Her kindness and generosity did not end with her life. I Through her life, stitch by stitch, ! her frugality and thrift, and de- ; votion to her church, she has | given us a shining example of citizenship which we can hold up to ourselves and our children as a model for living.” According to the prosecutor, Willie had returned home intoxicated, and his father and he argued over his drunkenness. In the presence of his mother and sister, Willie then proceeded to knock his father into senselessness.
