Dover Daily Reporter (Newspaper) - February 19, 1964, Dover, Ohio The Associated Press Is The Exclusive News Service of The Reporter In Tuscarawas County VOL. 60. NO. 187.    24    PAGES. HOME EDITION Largest Circulation In Tuscarawas County Dover-New Philadelphia, Ohio, Wednesday, February 19, 1964 Serving Over 10,700 Familiea Survivors Lifted From British Ship NBW YORK (AP)—A rescue chip today hauled aboard the first survivors from the storm-battered British merchantman, Ambassador, which, had wallowed helplessly in mountainous North Atlantic seas for over 24 hours. The Fruen, a Norwegian freighter, secured a line to the derelict shortly before 9 a.m. (EST), and removed three crewmen, the Coast Guard reported. Four to six men still were reported aboard the hulk, which was listing at 50 degrees. Other members of the 35-man crew abandoned ship early Tuesday afternoon as sea water crept higher in her engine room. Their fate was not known. The Coast Guard Cutter Coos Bay, directing the search and rescue effort some 660 miles southeast of Halifax, N.S. said two liferafts, each with four or more persons aboard, had been sighted at sunset. The Vulcania, an Italian passenger liner, was assigned to See SHIP, Pare ll i rf;,. •*.

S. Supreme Court allowing federal courts to take action where congressional districts have disproportionately large or small populations affect the 16th District of Tuscarawas, Stark and Wayne Counties? Very likely, thinks Ohio Attorney General William B. Saxbe, but probably not until at least 1966. But the change will not result because the 16th District is either disproportionately large or small. To Saxbe’s way of thinking it is well within the definition of what can be reasonably called a “fairly drawn congressional district.” Ideally, each Ohio district should contain 404,432 persons, when the population of Ohio in 1960 is divided by the 24 seats it is allowed. In 1960 the 16th District was listed as having a population of 492,631. Pointing out that the U. S. Supreme Court admitted that perfect district-drawing was impossible, Saxbe thought that a reasonable difference in Ohio could amount to about 100,000 But elsewhere at the present time there is as much difference as 489,868 between Ohio’s largest district (the Dayton area) and its smallest district Police, Fire Fund Battle Is Signaled State Rep. Jess Dempster (D) of Uhrichsville cited a threat to local rule and a move toward costly centralization following yesterday’s first meeting of a General Assembly legislative study group probing the financing of police and firemen pension funds. “I predict the end of local administration of fire and police pension funds by the end of the year when a bill for a state agency will be proposed to the 106th General Assembly unless there is drastic action by the Fraternal Order of Police and Firemen’s Assn. groups,’’ Dempster stated. He added that there are 140 fire department pension funds and 262 individual police funds in Ohio and that 28 of these are now broke with several others, including Uhrichsville and Dennison funds, on the verge of going broke. “At present, the funds are supported by a mandatory inside 3-tenths mill on each political subdivision's tax duplicate and 4 per cent of each fireman’s and policeman’s wages,” he added. “Under the law, however, these funds should never go Strasburg Girl, Scalded In Bath, Off Critical List STRASBURG — Carol Yenny, I. daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Yenny of 439 N. Wooster Ave., is reported “improved” today in Canton Aultman Hospital where she was taken last Thursday after scalding her legs while taking a bath. Doctors will remove bandages today to determine if surgery is necessary. Mrs. Yenny had just finished giving the youngster a bath and went to another room for clothing. Carol reached up and turned on the hot water She was taken to Au it man where she went into shock and convulsions. The child was taken off the “critical list” Saturday. broke. The state is required to provide one-tenth of a mill on taxable property in each subdivision as a subsidy and each subdivision is required to contribute from the general fund to meet pension payments. “A decrease in tax valuation and rising wages for police and firemen have created a mounting financing problem. “As I see it, the way members of the committee are talking indicates another centralization with the resultant high administrative costs. At present, the administrative costs are nil." Dempster cited Toledo, where $100,000 has been taken out of the city’s general fund to meet pension needs. A Cincinnati official reportedly told the commit- See* BATTLE, Pare ll ON THE INSIDE Around The World ..........5 Dear Abby ........ .........23 Dr. Alvarez........ .........23 Dr. Crane ......... .........ai Goren On Bridge ..

This is why Saxbe thinks that there are sure to be some suits filed in Ohio based on the recent court decision. And while the 16th District may not be directly involved, the several redistricting plans already suggested would, by setting off a chain of changes, eventually affect the 16, now served by Cong. Frank T. Bow (R) of Canton. While lawyers and politicians here are still in a turmoil as how the decision will affect Ohio, Saxbe and his 2 top aides sat down with this writer and predicted this possible timetable and change in Ohio: (1)—Nothing can be done so fast in the courts as to have any effect on next November’s election. (2)—But in the meantime there will be pressure in Ohio for a special session of the legislature to make Ohio’s districts more equal. <S>—lf there is a special session or even if the effort is not made until the next regular session of the legislature in January of 1965, any change would not go into effect until the regu- See DISTRICT, Pace ll v Weathervane YESTERDAY High 38    Low    30 Elsewhere In U.S. High Low Pr.

He said he contacted agent Walter Schump Monday, one of the men who made the raid, who said he would file the delinquency counts. The trio also will have to appear before the Ohio Liquor Commission as state witnesses for a hearing on the liquor permit held by the Dinolfos. The delinquency charges were prepared by Prosecutor Harlan Spies.

Several I use ara was County residents were lolling on the beaches under clear skies today with tem* peratures hovering around the 80-degree mark—in Miami Beach, Fla., that is. Those who stayed north for the winter, however, were slushing around in 8 inches of snow under heavy skies and the thermometer dulled in the low 30’s. Last night’s snowfall was the heaviest since 9.4 inches fell within a 24-hour period on Nov. 25, 1950. This year’s previous high was 6 inches on New Year’s Day. It all began around 5:30 p.m. District 19 vice president, conferred with Dover president, Dick Gordon, and James Davis, chairman, on setting up the regional program. Top state officers and candidates are expected to attend the session, which drew nearly 200 Jaycees to Dover last year. The membership voted to cosponsor the annual Soap Box Derby again this year with the New Philadelphia and Newcomerstown clubs and area Chevrolet dealers. Chase addressed the group and reviewed numerous Jaycee activities on the local, state and national levels, urging increased participation by local members. In other action, the club voted a $20 donation and participation in the inter - city club meeting March 16 at Masonic Temple when the IO YMCA swimmers, who set a world mark for the 50 - mile relay recently, will be honored. The Junior Olympic program was approved as a project again this year. Conducting the annual Halloween parade was referred to the board of directors for action. Bruce Mears, chairman, gave a progress report on the March ( IO Distinguished Service Award presentation and Bosses’ Night banquet. and by 9 last night it was obvious that winter was making at least one more assault on the area before yielding to spring. The weatherman predicts further accumulation through tomorrow via continous snow flurries. Just for comparison's sake and for those who re) ember the “big srow back nen,” the heaviest snowfall v .thin a 24-hour period in recent years was 12.2 inches on Dec. 12, 1944. On Jan. 24, 1948, there were 11.3 inches. The snow, besides canceling a number of meetings, closed Tuscarawas Valley, Tuscarawas, Midvale, Gar away, Baltic, Gnadenhutten. Strasburg and Stone Creek schools. Dover, New Philadelphia, Uhrichsville, Dennison and Port Washington students were in session. Buses ran a little behind schedule and 2 got stuck on Dover routes, but finally made it. One bus from Union Local was stopped by drifted county roads. Dover St. Joseph’s and New Philadelphia Sacred Heart pupils already had the day off because of a teachers’ workshop. State patrolmen and sheriff deputies report most county roads snow-choked. Main highways in the area are slippery but passable. State, county, township and city crews were on the job most of the night attempting to keep “on top” of the wet, mounting blanket. No damage nor serious outages were reported by General Telephone Co. or Ohio Power Co. officials due to the snow'. In New Philadelphia, a water main broke on Tuscarawas Ave. NW near Emmett Ave., making a ‘‘slick problem” for repair crews. Dover Service Director H. S. Ream said crews began plowing streets at IO last night and sidewalks at 5 a.m. Similar activities kept New Philadelphia workmen out all night. E. A. Reiser of New Philadelphia, area weatherman, reported the water content of the 8 inches was .66 of an inch. Overnight low was 30 degrees, which See WINTER.
