With this thought in mind, she has announced her plans for retirement effective Jan. 15. Prior to the depression, the city had always taken care of all its own relief cases, but during that period the load became too great and it was necessary for the state to take over. At this time, Dolly was appointed caseworker for the City of Dover with offices in the city building. Simon Kappeler was mayor at the time. Mrs. Steitz recalls the many agencies that were formed during the depression including the CCC, a camp for boys. In most cases, the eldest son in a family could enter one Pf the camps where they were put to work on road projects, some in forests in the west or any other jobs available. Part of the money paid them was sent to their families who in turn were taken off the poor relief rolls. Dolly feels that something of this sort might be a good thing for some of today’s youths— the school dropouts and unemployed who find themselves with too much idle time on their hands. Entering the armed services is not the answer for many of them inasmuch as they are unable to pass the mental and physical fitness tests required been in an Industrial School is not eligible for service. She disagrees with those who say some of these boys wouldn’t work even if they had the opportunity. She feels that ‘‘perhaps not quite arf steadily or reliably as some, but given the opportunity, the majority of them would work.” An incident which stands out in her memory during the de- See MRS.

Kennedy. Johnson’s proposals — many requiring action by Congress— were aimed at problems ranging from the depths of poverty to the height of the moon. For most taxpayers, the biggest surprise probably lay in the budget disclosures. At $97.9 billion, the first Johnson spending plan would be $500 million smaller than the latest estimate of spending under Kennedy’s final, record - setting budget. Johnson described his budget as “efficient, honest and frugal.” And he said it will maintain “the full strength of our defenses” while providing "the most federal support in history for education, for health, for retraining the unemployed, and for helping the economically and physically handicapped.” Johnson called newsmen into the White House rose garden | before he went to the Capitol ; to deliver his nationally tele-| vised and broadcast speech ami added a few points that were not specified in the message. For one thing, he estimated that about $1 billion will be set aside for the antipoverty program. He said $300 million of this will be spent in fiscal 1965 starting next July I, some additional amounts will be spent from existing programs and $200 million will be requested for use in future years. The President also disclosed that he met during the morn* ing with Sen. Harry F. Byrd, D-Va., chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, and Rep.

Phila Police Seek Clues In Store Breakin New Philadelphia police are seeking clues today in an early morning theft of televisions, radios and phonographs from Foutz Appliance at 510 Tuscarawas Ave. NW. Operator Dick Foutz set tile value of the 14 apliances at $900. The breakin follows the same format of 2 similar “jobs” pulled recently in Dover. An alert patrolman, making the regular rounds, discovered the Foutz breakin at 4:55 a.m. when he saw an opened door at the side of the building. Foutz was immediately notified and a search of the store was made. Two of the 7 television sets stolen and an FM radio were taken from the well-lighted front window. Other items were: 5 televisions, a transistor radio, 3 phonographs and an AM radio. Foutz told officers the loss is covered by insurance.

Hie assistant prosecutor said that, while the Canton officials admitted there had been aa agreement on payment of money in lieu of taxes when 477.128 acres had been purchased in Sugarcreek Township in 1968, they are not presently willing to pay the equivalent of $11,200 placed on the tax duplicate by the county as a result of reevaluation of the 84.10 acres in 1962.

The board ordered that the taxes placed on the improved 84.10 acres by Tuscarawas County Board of Revision, should be removed from the 1963 tax duplicate and further ordered the resee WATER, Fare 2 Phila Taxis Pass Exams Seven Dover and New Philadelphia taxicabs passed inspection before New Philadelphia police yesterday afternoon with near “flying colors.” Police Chief Louis Clark stated the checkups are held each January and July prior to the ia-suance of city permits.
