Fox, secondary education supervisor. But he has made an on-the-spot study of schools in Tuscarawas County and said his reports should be in the hands of superintendents and school boards within the next 2 or 3 weeks.

First, about 6:10, there was a rabbit scurrying hither and yon in the Post Office block. He’d dash into doorways, apparently looking for a hot bargain. Then the motion of people would cause him to whip back into the street, where the blowing of horns by motorists who spotted him, sent the poor fellow scampering back onto the sidewalk. When last noticed he was hiding under a parked car. Then, about 8:45, shoppers were surprised to see a young lady, in bare feet, standing with 2 friends at W. 3rd and Cherry Sts. About that time a fire truck arrived on the scene. The laddies jumped off the truck, unloaded a ladder and placed it against the Cherry St. side of the building occupied by the Joe Weiss store. One of the firemen climbed to a second-floor ledge and tossed an object down to the barefooted gal in a white leather jacket. It developed she was demonstrating the New York Rockettes’ high kick for her friends and a shoe went sailing high into the air and came down on that narrow ledge. “I’ve been in the department 16 years and this is the craziest call I’ve ever answered," one fireman said.

State Made BUC Switch For 'Service' By Richard Zimmerman Reporter Columbus Bureau COLUMBUS — The reassignment of Gilbert Robinson from the New Philadelphia office of the Bureau of Unemployment Compensation is a part of a drive for better investigation of claims, BUC officials indicated here today. John Craig, regional director of the U.S. Department of Labor and Employment Service, pointed out that there is no tieup between the present federal and state investigations into possible fraud in employment service records and Robinson’s transfer. An investigation was launched into 23 Ohio cities, but only ll offices have been covered because of recent budget cuts which affected the travel money used I by investigators. They have ' checked out bureaus in Warren, | Barberton, Marion, Cincinnati, Akron and Columbus.

Another meeting has been set up next Monday between Rutledge and officials of the Pittsburgh Plate Glass Co., present owners of the mine equipment and coal rights. “We are endeavoring to obtain necessary financing from local banks and institutions rather than from outside sources," Streb continued. “We hope to be able to wind up the deal then," he added. Robert Russell, an official for the union local, said this morning that he had not received any word on the seniority rights settlement. He said, however, that it could be possible Rutledge reached the agreement with Tommy Williams of Bellaire, district union representee, if he made a concession to hire 4 men, all over 60 years of age. Williams, contacted at 12:30 today, confirmed reports of the settlement and said that Rutledge has agreed to hire the 4 men in question if they can pass the physical examination. “I had a telephone conversation with Rutledge this morning,” Williams said, “to varify our understanding on the list and the manner in which the men would be called back before the production begins.” He added that “no obstacles remain.” He noted, however, that any of the 4 men could file a grievance if he were rejected during the examination and could prove that he was physically able. In conjunction with the report. which covers the 7th through 12th grades, the board set a special meeting March 2 at which time present and recommended needs will be considered for a levy to be placed on the May 5 ballot.

It reads as follows: “Citizens of the district, the board and administration are commended for the measures which have been taken to expand and modernize the high school facilities. The remodeled areas for science, business education, offices and library, together with the equipment additions, should contribute significantly to an improved educational program. “Tile daily program operates with reasonable efficiency under the many difficult conditions which the construction activities have created. The principal has made much effort, with the cooperation of the staff and pupils, to minimize these inconveniences. “In addition to building im provements there have bee® noteworthy developments in th® school program.
