This brought to 21 the total of jury candidates who have been rejected. Candidate No. 22 was excused because of illness. After the 19th rejection, Melvin Belli, chief defense counsel, renewed his motion that the trial be moved to another Texas city.
Dist. Judge Joe B. Brown turned him down again.
As the third day continued in an effort to assemble a jury, there still was not a single juror for the trial of the man who killed Lee Harvey Oswald, accused assassin of President John F. Kennedy.
Of the first five prospects struck from the list today, two women and a man said they cannot return a verdict of death in the electric chair. Another man said he cannot be convinced that Ruby wras insane when he gunned down Oswald. And another woman said she had an opinion as to Ruby’s guilt or innocence.

The reductions average about 19 per cent of present individual taxes. Rates for some 550,000 corporations are also being cut.

Beethoven’s fire - breathing "King Stephen" overture will aptly initiate Sunday night’s concert by the Tuscarawas County Philharmonic Orchestra in Dover High Auditorium with Eugene Kilinski conducting.
In his program notes, Kilinski underlines the fact that "although of only secondary importance in Beethoven’s vast output, "King Stephen" nonetheless gives us more than a glimpse of the master’s power in evoking a large canvas of dramatic conflict and seething turmoil, interspersed with moments of tender compassion.’’ Guest soloist for the third in a series of 4 concerts by the orchestra this season will be the

Gale-Force Winds Hike Snow's Punch On Coast
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
A snow storm spawned in the Gulf of Mexico slammed into the Eastern Seaboard Wednesday, with gale-force winds piling drifts up to six feet from North Carolina to Maine.
The affected areas were expected to have a “breather” today, with snow flurries, light rain or just cloudy weather forecast.
The storm closed many schools and slowed plane, train, auto and bus traffic. Numerous sports and social events were canceled.
Drifts were dix feet deep in northern Virginia; five feet on Maryland’s secondary roads. Near Carlisle in central Pennsylvania the snow measured 25 inches, as it did in Martinsburg, W.Va.
The Baltimore and Washington, D.C., areas were practically bypassed. Baltimore got only a few inches of snow and rain prevailed in the nation’s capital. Trains from Washington to
Philadelphia were up to a half hour late.
New York City escaped with 4 to 6 inches of snow, but gusty winds up to 32 miles per hour caused some power failures.
Westchester County, north of the city, and the Catskill Mountain area were hit hard, with snow accumulations of up to a foot. In Upstate New York the snow depths were: Albany, 6 to 8 inches; Glens Falls, 4 inches; Syracuse and Rome, 2 inches;

Members of the New Philadelphia Athletic Assn. and Board of Education paid tribute yesterday to Clayton Hatch, former plant manager of Warner & Swasey Co. at New Philadelphia, who was transferred recently to Cleveland. Hatch (left) is shown accepting a plaque from James Pritz, association president, for "outstanding service to New Philadelphia schools and high school athletics. ' ''Community service is the rent you pay for taking up space in a community," Hatch told the 23, including I. T. White, his successor and other local Warner & Swasey officials attending the dinner in Hotel Reeves. Described as a "tough man to follow as a community leader" by Pritz, Hatch said he felt somewhat like a catalytic agent and that this tribute reflected the interest of the entire plant in the progress of the community. I'm going to miss the good people and good community I found here" he concluded.
State Employes Greet Saturday As 'Ordinary' Day
COLUMBUS, Ohio (.AP) — Washington’s Birthday this year will be j"st another Saturday for state employes—unless they ar* scheduled to work that day.
lf they do work Saturday, they’ll get compeasatory time off later, says John M. McElroy, the governor’s No. I assistant. This applies primarily to those working in mental or penal institutions and some highway department workers, he added.
State liquor stores will ba closed Saturday.
A year ago, the then brand new administration of Gov. James A. Rhodes tried to get state employes to come to work on Washington’s Birthday, which fell on Friday. Many did, but some who did not won a court fight to establish it as a legal holiday.
For federal employes, it’s a different story. Although the holiday falls on Saturday this year, they will have Friday off as a compensating day.
