Tax Dispute Meeting Set County officials have agreed to meet with Canton officials Tuesday at I p.m. in Canton to discuss a possible settlement of problems arising from the recent tax exemption granted to Canton Waterworks Department on land owned in Tuscarawas County. By telephone conversation today, Morgan W. Roderick, assistant city solicitor of Canton, who presented Canton’s appeal to the Board of Tax Appeals, and Treasurer Victor Martinelli agreed on the time. Previously Assistant Prosecutor James Patrick, who is acting as legal counsel for the county, had informed Martinelli he would accompany him to Canton for the discussion. GirTs Dash Brings Help For Grandma A little girl galvanized shoppers in Dover’s business district yesterday afternoon into shocked immobility. No one who saw the face of screaming, panic-stricken Gloria Gay Swinderman, IO, as she ran down the street to summon her parents will forget it for a long time. Gloria had been shopping with her grandmother, Mrs. Myrtle •Swinderman, 69, of 413Ms N. Tuscarawas Ave. and, as they were leaving a shoe store at 219 W. 3rd St., Mrs. Swinderman fell unconscious, and struck her head against a door. Gloria bent to help her grandmother, who lay unmoving. Then the girl raced to the VFW on Cherry St. for her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Robert R. Swinderman of 434 Race St. They were at the stricken woman’s side in minutes and then police and firemen arrived. The later administered oxygen and after Mrs. Swinderman became conscious she was taken to Union Hospital in a Meese ambulance. Today Mrs. Swinderman, mother of Jack, Dover High basketball coach, and Dale, former school board member and city recreation director, is listed as “fair.” Cause of her illness has not been disclosed. sion said it will then call for a special meeting with the board to attempt a satisfactory solution to the financial problems which the board contends it faces in the present year. Action of the budget commission, composed of Auditor Donald Kinsey, Treasurer Victor Martinelli and Prosecutor Harlan Spies, followed receipt of a letter, dated Dec. 30, from Dr. Leslie L. Lawrence, board of health secretary, announcing a 6-area cutback in county health services beginning Feb. 15, if approximately $34,513 in additional funds are not allowed in the 1964 budget. The commission had been caught by surprise by the board’s proposed drastic cutback, especially since the proposed 1964 budget had not been disapproved by them. The budget was approved by the health board on Nov. 9, but the budget commission did not receive it until mid-November. Martinelli said yesterday he could not understand why the board had submitted such a budget which estimated 1964 expenditures at $110,270 and receipts at $81,206, with a difference at $34,513. Kinsey and Spies agreed that the $34,513 seemed to correspond very closely to the additional sum which could have been anticipated by the health board had the additional 2-tenths mill levy for operating expenses not been rejected by the county in the Nov. 5 vote. (The county, at the same time, voted for the renewal of a 3-tenths mill operating levy which last year provided the health district with an estimated $49,500.)

Barry Coldwater (below), Arizona Republican, is expected to make official today hi* plans to run for the GOP Presidential nomination. New York Gov. Nelson Rockefeller (above) already has avowed his candidacy, ★ ★ Coldwater To Make Twin Declaration By WALTER R. MEARS Associated Press Writer PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP)—Sen. Barry Goldwater—whose name means conservatism across America—will declare himself a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination today, a source close to the Arizona lawmaker said. At the same time, the Coldwater associate said, the senator will announce plans to file for his third Senate term. Coldwater will make his twin declarations at a private meeting with Arizona Republican leaders and a patio news conference at his sprawling, hillside home overlooking Phoenix. The senator was said to feel he must formally enter the presidential race because of the groundswell of support and the hundreds of thousands of campaign dollars raised by his conservative followers across the nation. Johnson Budget Shy Of Estimate JOHNSON CITY, Tex. AP)— President Johnson’s new budget will be in the neighborhood of a record $100 billion, but he hopes to cut red ink spending below the current level. The budget estimate for fiscal 1965, disclosed Thursday night by a White House source, is less than anticipated. Still, it will be a new peak for government spending. Soon after taking office Johnson suggested he would have difficulty keeping the spending total below $102.5 billion or $103 billion. He blamed unavoidable increases already authorized by Congress. The reduced figure Is in keeping with the economy drive he has called for since then. Balanced against the $100 billion spending total for the government year that begins July I DAY BRIGHTENER If the shoe fits, it’s about two sizes too big for her. will be forecast revenues of more than $90 billion. Johnson will tell Congress that revenues on this scale are dependent on early enactment of an $11 billion tax cut retroactive to Jan. I. The combination of Johnson’s spending and revenue predictions would yield an indicated deficit of less than $10 billion. A year ago, the late President John F. Kennedy recommended fiscal 1964 spending of $98.8 billion,a new high. Kennedy forecast revenues of $86.9 billion See JOHNSON, Page 2 ON THE INSIDE Around The World ..........12 Dear Abby .........  17 Doctor Writes ..............19 Dr. Crane ..................19 Churches ...................6-7 Goren Or Bridge ............5 Horoscope ...................19 Hospital News ........  12 Sports ...........  13-14 Television ...................17 Women’s Pages  ........8-9 But the source said Coldwater plans to hang onto the insurance of another Senate bid. Filing deadline for the Arizona primary is July IO—three days before the GOP National Convention opens in San Francisco to choose the party’s presidential standard bearer. Goldwater called 27 top Arizona Republicans to his Phoenix home to tell them of his plans. After he talks to them in his spacious study, he’ll hobble to the patio to tell the nation his decision. The private gathering was scheduled for ll a.m., Mountain Standard Time, the outdoor news conference a half hour later. Goldwater’s right foot is still in a cast after surgery to remove a calcium deposit from his heel. Should Goldwater capture the presidential nomination, the source said, he would withdraw from the senatorial field. Arizona Atty. Gen. Robert Pickrell has ruled Goldwater could run for both offices. But the senator has said repeatedly he will not. When then-Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson ran for both the vice presidency and the Senate in 1960, Goldwater accused him of political trickery. Word of Goldwater’s plans confirmed what political odds-makers had assumed all along —that the senator would carry his conservative banner into the race for the White House. Agreements In Territorial Disputes Is Aim By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER AP Diplomatic Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Top U.S. officials began a careful study today of a reported new proposal from Soviet Premier Khrushchev for a worldwide pact pledging peaceful settlement of international disputes over territory. The proposal was made by the Soviet leader in messages Thursday to President Johnson and other world leaders. Secretary of State Dean Rusk said while it was being translated into English that in its emphasis oil„ peaceful settlement it seemed to be in line with a long established U.S. policy. Rusk said the 21-page message would be carefully studied. President Johnson is getting a complete text delivered to him at his ranch in Texas. The message evidently is part of the Soviet peace offensive which Khrushchev undertook with the beginning of the new year. This parallels a peace drive opened this week by Johnson with a call for breakthroughs toward East • West agreement. Rusk told a news conference Thursday that the toited States 4will begin work shortly with the Allied governments principally interested in German issues — See ‘PEACE*, Pare 2 Helwick Gets New Contract At Strasburg STRASBURG — Maurice Helwick, who has been superintendent of the local school system 13 years, was given another 4-; year contract, until July I, 1968, when the Board of Education met last night.

Common Pleas Judge J. H. Lamneck overruled the motion on the court’s finding that it was “not well taken.’’ Through his counsel on Nov. 27 Bartolas, in his motion, argued that the Common Pleas Court order of Nov. 18 had been based on insufficient evidence and was contrary to law. After taking the motion under advisement, Lamneck yesterday delivered a 54-page opinion. “The issue in this case.’’ Lamneck wrote, “is not whether this court would find the same facts to exist as the commission did if the court had heard the oral testimony of the witnesses, but the issue is whether or not the finding of the commission is supported by reliable, probative and substantial evidence. “The testimony of the (minor) girl being unequ i and unimpeached,’’ the judge do- See BARTOLAS, Parr 2 \ ;
