Shareholder Vote Discussed Farm Bureau's Co-Op Board Defers Action On Contract Russell R. Glaser, manager of Tuscarawas County Farm Bureau Co-op Assn. Inc.. New Philadelphia. refused to reveal whether the reorganized Co-op board had acted yesterday on a shareholder resolution recommending that the board terminate its chicken-egg business contract. “I don’t want to comment any further,” Glazer said, in a telephone conversation, after he had named the officers who were elected by the Co-op board members earlier yesterday afternoon. It was learned elsewhere, however, that the shareholder recommendation was discussed, but was not included on the agenda for formal action by the board. The resolution reportedly will be brought up for action at a later date, which has not been specified. The board meets again March 27. The resolution challenging the one-year-old chicken contract was passed at the association’s 29th annual meeting on Feb. 5. At that meeting, Farm Bureau counsel, George Morrison of Columbus, declared the Co-op board is authorized to enter into contracts and cancel them.

Stanley Fox, high school supervisor for the department who visited Port Washington High on Jan. 16 during his inspection of schools in the county system, arid in his report: COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Some doubt about Lt. Col. John H. Glenn Jr.'s release from Grant Hospital today was indicated in a morning report by his physician. The report said Glenn, who suffered a mild brain concussion in a bathroom fall last Wednesday, had trouble standing in his hospital room. A hospital spokesman said the astronaut could stand only “for short periods,” and that “he is not up and around.” “He suffered vertigo (dizziness',” the report said. However, his condition is described as satisfactory. The decision on his leaving the hospital will come today and it will affect his Marine Corps retirement and his subsequent campaign for the Democratic U. S. senatorial nomination. The physicians set a noon deadline for themselves to say “Yes,” Glenn can leave the hos-Baltic Widow Gets Large Settlement Mrs. Mary I. Syler of Baltic has been awarded 135,000 in settlement of the claim arising from the death of her husband, William R., in a traffic accident on May 3. 1963. Although the widow, who is administratrix of the Syler estate, had not filed suit for damages, Tuscarawas County Probate Court awarded the claim in the best interests of all parties concerned. Making the payment are Junior N. Larrick, owner of the tractor trailer rig which collided with the Syler auto on Route 93, and Ronald L. Sears, who was driving at the time of accident. Both reside in Lebanon, 0. Syler. who left no will, is survived by IO children, all adults. “In view' of the enrollment, both present and anticipated, and the evident problems in developing programs and services to meet increasing and changing needs it is recommended and urged that this district directs its efforts toward becoming part of a larger and adequate administrative unit.” In continuing Port Washington High on the approved list of schools “for the present,” Fox noted several deficiencies in giv- pital, be retired from the military Sunday and set a political pace according to his recuperation . . . Or, “No,” he must remain a patient, deferring his retirement for another month and postponing his participation in Hie race for the Democratc U. S. senatorial nomination in Ohio. Marine regulations cancel retirement orders if the officer is in the hospital on the day they are to take effect. The orders can be effective only on the first of each month. Glenn, first American to orbit the earth, has been in the hospital since Wednesday with a mild brain concussion he received when he fell in the bathroom of his apartment here. He struck his head on the bathtub. He has shown improvement and was upgraded from “fair” to “satisfactory” condition Friday. However, he continued to have slight dizzy spells and some pain in moving.^Weathervane YESTERDAY High 36    Low 12 Elsewhere Is UA High Lern Pr.

Tuscarawas Ave. out of respect for foundlings who were buried many years ago near that location. It has been determined that no graves are in the plot where excavation is being done for the pilot plant of Bobbie Brooks Inc. Edward Mason, 72, of 208 Shafer Ave., Dover, showed A'ty. James Stephenson, CIC counsel, the site yesterday and said he remembered it “because I went fishing and swimming in that vicinity.” ‘There were 5 or 6 graves near the old chicken coop,” he said. “I remember because a wire fence kept chickens from scratching there. A lot of other folks know about those graves, too.” Jacobina Sterling, a former school teacher and a niece of the Robert Nugents, who had managed the children’s home, gave CIC officials the same story yesterday. Several years ago gravediggers at a cemetery in the county uncovered a shiny silver infant’s wrist bracelet while digging a grave. The inscription established the burial date as 60 years previously. There was nothing else in the unmarked grave. mm    , m mmmmmmmm -aBULLETIN ti    •.*>'%&• &■>:?HI ti :58 WASHINGTON (AP) - President Johnson revealed today the existence of a new U.S. super jet fighter plane “that far exceeds the performance of any other aircraft in use in the world today.” The President, in his first televised news conference, said the new long range interceptor was being revealed at this time so that its flight testing and final phases of development could proceed in orderly fashion.
