Dover Daily Reporter (Newspaper) - February 21, 1964, Dover, Ohio Farmer Tripped In Holdup, Confesses 2 Stark 'Jobs' AKRON, Ohio (AP)— Bernard Curtis McKeivier, 30 - year - old poultry farmer who was captured outside an Akron savings and loan association branch, has admitted two other holdups at branches of the association, detectives in Barberton say. Police said McKeivier was captured as he left the S&L firm in Barberton Thursday carrying $3,778 in a paper bag and wielding a long-barreled pistol. Officers were alerted by an alarm sounded while the holdup was in progress. Sgt. Joseph P. Moline, 53, drove up in his cruiser and ran to the front door, gun in hand. He sent Pa trolman Stephen E. Banic, 40, to the rear of the building, where Banic intercepted the holdup man. Det. Sgt. Jack Gascoyne said that McKeivier, who is married and has three small children, admitted staging two holdups this month at the Uniontown Branch of the association. That office was robbed Feb. 3 of $7,400 and Feb. 14 of $3,700, and on both occasions the robber carried a long-barreled revolver and wore a multi-colored ski cap. McKeivier, lives in Summit County, once served four years in Ohio Penitentiary for armed robbery. He was booked in Barberton on a suspicion charge, and bond was set at $50,000. Defense Authorization Bill Largest In U.S. History By STANLEY MEISLER WASHINGTON (AP) _ The House has approved the $16.9 -billion defense authorization bill, including $92 million in research funds not asked by Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara. Approval of the largest defense authorization in history came late Thursday on a 336-0 roll call vote. The 92 million is intended for research on a manned bomber and a manned interceptor plane. The House Armed Services Committee had recommended the money on the advice of Gen. Curtis LeMay, Air Force chief of staff, although it had not been included in McNamara’s requests. Since it is an authorization bill, it really includes no money at ail. It simply sets the maximum limits for later appropriations by Congress. And even if Congress later appropriates the $92 million for research, there is nothing in the The Reporter Is Your Action Newspaper VOL. 60.

During the debate, Rep Carl Vinson, D-Ga., chairman of the Armed Services Committee, told the House that the committee had put in the extra $92 million on the advice of LeMay. “I believe what General LeMay says,'’ Vinson said, “and I think all of you believe him, too.” Rep. Samuel S .Stratton, D • N.Y , offered an amendment to strike out the $92 million, but Vinson and his supporters easily defeated it.

'WEIGHTY' PROBLEM 2 Pounds Jeopardizes Career Of USAF Captain The County Auditor’s office this week mailed 5.884 personal property tax returns. These returns must be filed no later than April 30, if a person was engaged in business on Dec. 31, 1963. or owned investments Jan. I, 1964. Auditor Donald Kinsey explained that these investments consist of stocks, corporate bonds, municipal bonds, notes debentures, land contracts and other similar property. Government bonds and accounts in Ohio banks are exempted from the tax, Kinsey said. He emphasized that, even though a person does not receive a tax return from the Auditor's office, he is still bound to file by April 30. All manufacturers, mer- ON THE INSIDE Around The World .....

In addition, each person who rents out furnished rooms or ; apartments must file the return, with furniture, fixtures and equipment used in such rental facilities listed. Investments are taxed at 2 mills if they produced no income, Kinsey said, and 5 per cent of the income yield if they were productive. The rate of tax on tangible personal property is identical with the tax rate on real estate in the district where the property is located. Monies paid on personal property taxes to the county treasurer’s office are used for schools, libraries, health, police and fire services in the area. Kinsey reminded the taxpayer that a penalty of 5 per cent is assessed on those filing within 60 days after April 30, a penalty of IO per cent until Oct. I, and 50 per cent after Oct. I. (The latter penalty can be reduced for a good cause.) Persons who do not receive a tax return in the mail can obtain tax blanks and information relative to their preparation at the Auditor’s Office.

He said U.S. problems are eclipsed by “the spreading civil war among Communists” — a reference to the policy gulf between the Soviet Union and Communist China. The President gave his foreign policy views in an address prepared for an outdoor convocation at the University of California at Los Angeles, held to honor Johnson and visiting President Adolfo Lopez Mateos of I Mexico. This was the prelude to two days of Mexican-American good w ill talks at the desert resort of Palm Springs, 90 miles away.
