This was disclosed in a newly published book, “Factors of In dustrial Location in Ohio” by Prof. Henry L. Hunker and the late Prof. Alfred J. Wright of Ohio State University’s Department of Geography. The book reports on a study of 545 firms which have located in all parts of the state since 1939. Sixty-one per cent were independent operations, 24 per cent were branch plants of na tional concerns and the remai ling were branches of Ohio parent firms. Of the 545 industrialists polled, only eight mentioned taxes as a factor influencing their loca tion decisions. And, only three called it a factor. The No. I location factor listed by more than 40 per cent of the companies was market accessibility. They cited this as an impelling factor in their location and successful operations. Some 34 per cent listed labor as a major factor, mentioning in order of importance availability, favorable wage rates, experience, availability of female workers and the absence of organized union activity. Union activity, however, was listed by less than I per cent of those polled. Surprisingly, the authors said, the availability of research facilities was listed as an important factor by only six of the 545 questioned. From this, it was concluded that the companies are not research - oriented and that Ohio has not been evaluated as a research-conscious state by prospective industry. In another unexpected development, the book said, the firms failed to even mention the im- 35 County Correspondent-Reporters Mean Complete County Coverage VOL 60. NO. 195.    24    PAGES.

Johnson Takes Solid Civil Rights In Florida Election Debut' President Johnson, on the first openly-political trip of his administration, pulls a switch (left) that starts construction of a 107-mile cross-Florida canal (see map) at Palatka, Fla. Johnson also spoke at a fund-raisina dinner and made an unexpected visit to Joseph P. Kennedy, father of the late president. By FRANK CORMIER MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP)-President Johnson opened his 1964 election campaign by taking a solid stand for civil rights before a Southern audience. He also shook hands with street-corner crowds, paid a visit to the father of the late President John F. Kennedy in Palm Beach, cuffed the Republicans, and generally seemed to enjoy himself on a quick, four-stop trip to a hotel nightclub to see the entertainers Tony Martin and Cyd Charisse. After all that he was up early for the flight back to Washington today. Leaving his hotel at 5:30 a m. EiST he flew by helicopter to Homestead Air Force Base, took off by jet at 6:05 a m. and landed at Andrews Air Force Base outside the capital at 8:12. Johnson told 3,000 fellow Democrats at a fund-raising dinner Thursday night that “full participation in our society can no longer be reserved to men of one color.” “The administration,” he said “intends to press forward with legislation, with education and with action until we have eliminated the last barrier of intolerance.” The appause was modest. Four times, Johnson was applauded when he said that all Americans—regardless of color, region or religion—have certain constitutional rights and human rights that must be respected. But, to observers on the sidelines, it appeared that about CIVIL RIGHTS ANGLE SPOTLIGHTED Sheppard Suit Has Some Concerned Widow "Shocked" By Rewiring Job Dover Mayor C. LeMoyne Lu-thy today warned residents of Dover to have competent electricians, rather Rian unqualified amateurs, install wiring. The warning stems from a recent complaint by a widow, who lives on Slingluff Ave. She told Luthy and the Dover Electric Department that she had her basement rewired by local men and that the cost seemed prohibitive to her. The mayor and 2 qualified electricians inspected the job and determined that the wiring violated city code and that the price she had paid was approximately 3 times that a competent electrician would have charged. Electric department workers said that all the wiring would have to be replaced. Luthy added. “People in Dover who want wiring installed should hire qualified electricians or check with the city department." Projects Unit To Meet DENNISON — The Twin City Community Projects and National Clay Week Council Inc. will meet Sunday at 7:30 p.m. in the Ohio Power Co. office. All organizational representatives are to attend to vote on the group’s annexation stand. By Richard Zimmerman Reporter Columbus Bureau (Last of 2 Articles) COLUMBUS — Attorneys for Dr. Sam Sheppard have filed their first civil suit in a federal court and have those responsible for his conviction and those charged with keeping him in prison concerned. Basis for the new suit is that Sheppard’s civil rights were not protected, a subject dear to the hearts of the federal court system. Informed sources In Attorney General William Saxbe’s office say they are concerned about 4 of 22 arguments presented by Sheppard, noting that federal courts have, under the influence of the U.S. Supreme Court, become progressively tougher in their protection of a prisoner’s rights. The areas of concern are: (1)—that jurors made unauthorized phone calls during the trial; (2)--that Cleveland police did not allow Sheppard and his at torneys free access to the mur- opening for Sheppard’s attor-dcr scene: (3)—and (4)—that , neys. half the audience sat still and silent. Miami Beach was the fourth stop on Johnson s Forida tour. He flew from Washington to Jacksonville Naval Air Station where, after shaking a few hands, he proceeded by helicopter to Palatka to break ground for the cross-Florida barge canal that will link the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts. After returning to the air station, Johnson flew by jet transport to Palm Beach, where he paid a courtesy call on ailing Joseph P. Kennedy, father of the late president. Then Johnson, his wife and two daughters boarded a helicopter and followed the coast to Miami Beach. Although a number of these moves were made without advance announcement, Johnson gave no sign that he was concerned about his safety. At least five times during his Miami Beach stay, the President waded into thick crowds to shake hands, and the crowd pushed and shoved around him. By Charley Dickens D emember “Timmy, t h e ^ Raccoon.” — star pet of F. W’. Andrews of New Philadelphia? Well, he was gone again (it was that season!) and for quite a while until last week. Then, a neighbor hood boy was quick to phone and say the pet had returned. Seems “Timmy” had chased the boy’s dog out of his kennel and was gently snoozing away inside when his owners came to repossess him. the trial judge allowed testimony to the effect that while Sheppard refused a lie detector tost a prosecution witness did take such a test. But most of those — except the man actually representing the state — feel the one new contention that Sheppard was not represented by a lawyer at his very first arraignment in Bay Village is the really big Roy Odenkirk Named Swiss Festival Head SUGARCREEK — Roy Odenkirk of Shanesville was elected to succeed A, J. Ladrach as president of the Ohio Swiss Festival Inc., after Ladrach declined re-election at a board of trustees meeting this week. Ladrach has served as president of the festival since it was organized in 1953. A. C. Hostetler, treasurer since the organization’s inception, also asked to be relieved of his duties. A committee was formed to explore the possibility of hiring a paid secretary-treasurer. Howard Gerber was elected vice president and the following were elected trustees: Ernest Staider, Karl Kinsey, Forrest Hicks and Earnest Schmid of the Ohio Swiss Cheese Assn.; Odenkirk, Gerber, Ralph Baker and Roy Hostetler of the local Business Men’s Assn., and Sam Banks, Bill Neff, Harvey Showers and Dex Sedwick of Village Council. Dover Population Jump Set At 483 Dover is the fastest growing city in Tuscarawas County and Uhrichsville is losing, rather than gaining inhabitants. Sugarcreek, so far as percentage increase goes, heads the county I County has suffered a steady when a loss of 274 inhabitants since 1950 was recorded. Uhrichsville’s decline is the only one of special note in this area, but neighboring Harrison Excavation For Pilot Plant 'Uncovers' Cemetery Rumors Are there, or are there not bodies buried on the grounds of the Children’s Home near the site of the new plant being erected by the Community Improvement Corp. Beginning of excavation tor the plant this week has literally “dug up" strong rumors of bodies having been buried there. However, as of this morning, authorities have not been able to Rubbish Schedule City trucks will pick up rubbish on the following schedule: Monday — Wooster and Union Aves, to the east limits of the city. Tuesday — Wooster and Union Aves, to the west limits. Wednesday - E. Front St. and the south side of E. 2nd St. to the river.

In a statement, Atty. James Stephenson, CIC counsel, said: “The evidence presently available indicates, if there is a cemetery, it is not in the site of the present construction of the pilot plant for Bobbie Brooks Inc. “If the cemetery is located, the tentative plans are to remove any remains for suitable burial in other cemeteries. In the event it is established that there are graves in the property, but they cannot be located, an appropriate memorial will be erected.” Earlier this week, county commissioners viewed the property where Zella Kelly, daughter of George Kelly, superitendent of the home from 1910-40, had indicated ll graves were located. She told commissioners no burials had taken place during the See RUMORS. Pare 2 with 12 per cent, a jump from 982 in 1960 to 1,009 in 1963. These facts along with others are contained in a report issued by the Economic Research Division of the Ohio Development Department. The Division, in compiling its figures, considered the excess of births over deaths, or vice versa; net migration based on trends from 1950 to I960; village estimates obtained from such local sources as mayors, postmasters and agencies involved in maintaining population records, and information on annexations and detachments. Dover’s population increased by 483 persons between 1960 and July I, 1963. Its population as of July I was 11,783. Uhrichsville’s population decreased 198 in the same period—the third dip in a trend which started in 1950 when the city’s population was 6,614. In 1960 Uhrichsville had 6,201 inhabitants and, as of last July I, only 6,003. Responsible authorities say the downward trend in Uhrichsville is due mostly to the decline of the clay industry. But adjacent Dennison gained IO residents in the 3 years since the 1960 census. overall decline since 1950. when it had 19,054 persons living in its confines. In 1960, the inhabitants numbered 17,995; in 1963, only 17,446. New Philadelphia remains Tuscarawas County’s largest city with 14,456 persons, but its population increase is slower than Dover’s. If othe- factors just remain constant, it is reasonable to believe that Dover will edge the county seat out of first place by 2060 A.D., give or take a few years, since Dover’s yearly population increase average is 146 and New Philadelphia’s only 116. Zoar, after suffering a 1950-60 population drop from 200 to 191, again is on the upswing with 212 registered as of July I. Barnhill remains constant with 350 residents, the same number it had in 1960. That was a drop of 42 since 1950. Newcomerstown had 4,273 last year, showing no change from 1960, The fastest growing village in Stark County would appear to be Beach City with 1,214 inhabitants, an increase of 163 since the census of 1960. Na- See POPULATION, Pafe 9 But David Kessler, assistant Attorney General actually appearing on behalf of the astate, says he is not worried about this facet. “He was not represented at the preliminary arraignment but at others, more important, he had a lawyer,” Kessler argues. Admitting the Supreme Court recently has become extra tough in this area, Kessler argued that See SHEPPARD, Page 15 2 Motorists Charged In Phila Mishaps New Philadelphia police cited John M.

Philo Bottling Firm Seeking Building Site Royal Crown-Nehi Bottling Co. of New Philadelphia is planning a building project — as soon as a suitable site can be found. Owner Robert F. Weber made the announcement this morning, stating the firm had outgrown its present quarters at 205 S. Broadway. “We are planning a building of 12,000 square feet.” W'eber said. The present building has approximately 4,500 square feet. Weber noted that “additional business” was the big reason for the expansion. He said the firm will need a lot of at least 300 x 300 and that gas and sewer service must be available. Weber did not limit the building to New Philadelphia, but said it must be in “this locality.” Weber plans to equip the structure with new machinery. The firm presently has 12 employes. Education surely has changed, not only in methods, but in principle, if you believe what one local principal delivered on a bulletin to his task force. Overlooking, or ignoring, such basic axioms dating back to Aristotle and others—like: “Experience is the better teacher” — “Experience is the mistrass of all learning” — “Practice makes perfect” — this man of wisdom wrote: “We learn from experience that men never learn from experience.” A deputy sheriff’s cruiser ignored a red light at the Boulevard and Bellevue Ave. last night at 6.30 and didn’t have its own red light flashing, although several cars were stopped there. That’s a dangerous practice, in addition to being a violation of a city ordinance. 1 Carl Moser, long-time Dover gardener, had a special sparkle in his eye this week as he came in to give his annual spring weather prophesy. “It’ll be an early one this year.” was what most of us wanted to hear and j that’s what he said. Any I tradictory predictions? con- FBI To Send Crew To Check Rail Violence By JOE MCGOWAN JR. MIAMI BEACH. FU (AP)— The FBI will send a chief in-specter and a force of 30 agents to crack down on violence in the Florida EUst Coast Railway strike. The action was sparked bv presidential command following the dynamiting of a train near where President Johnson was shaking. "This criminal action has got to stop.” the President decared as he departed from what had been a purely political address to a Democratic fund-raising dinner Thursday night. “I am not passing judgment on who is right or who is wrong." Johnson said. “But as the leader and spokesman for all the people of this nation, I am saying that you cannot take the law into your own hands.” Johnson was late appearing at the banquet and apologized, saying he had been conferring with Hoover and Wirtz. Railroad officials list more than 200 acts of sabotage since the strike began Jan. 23. 1963. The violence started after the road began moving freight with nonunion help about six weeks after the walkout. The tempo picked up three months ago after a presidential emergency board recommended that the road give its 1,300 off-train workers the raise they asked, and the road refused. The latest two explosions, th# fourth and fifth this month—occurred within a few miles of each other near St. Augustine, The second went off about the time that President Johnson, 15 miles away in Palatka, pressed a button that started construction on the cross-E’lorida barge canal.

Consider Merger, Goshen Is Urged The Board of Education of Goshen Local School District and the community as a whole have been urged to consider merger with another district “to achieve the goals of a modern, comprehensive and adaptable educational program." The recommendation is made by Stanley L. Fox. school supervisor for the State Department of Education, in the first of a series of released reports on surveys he made in Tuscarawas County. The Daily Reporter's Columbus Bureau writer. Richard Zimmerman. recently reported that recommendations for consolida tion of some districts in Tuscarawas County were forthcoming. Fox concluded his Goshen report by saying that Midvale High would continue on the list of schools approved by the state department but pointed out that "measures which delay correction of basic organizational deficiencies may prove eventually to handicap the district in meeting future obligations to its boys and girls."
