Commission Okays Salvation Army Aid Tuscarawas County, commissioners have asked their counsel, Assistant Prosecutor James Patrick, to prepare a resolution authorizing funds for the Salvation Army as partial payment of expenses involved in the care of transients. The request for funds came from Brig. William Murtaugh in a Salvation Army Advisory Council meeting Nov. 14. He stated it was based on a critical shortage in money needed for help extended at the Dover Citadel. Brig. Murtaugh said earlier this week he had left the amount of funds granted up to commissioners. In preparation for the Nov. 14 meeting, Lorin Gadd, acting director of the County Welfare Department, had contacted Canton Philo Retail Head Resigns A meeting was to be held this afternoon in the Dutch Oven Restaurant at New Philadelphia to name a successor to Jim Jackson, who has submitted his resignation as president of the New Philadelphia Retail Merchants Council retroactive to Jan. I. Jackson, named last fall to fill the unexpired term of Eddie Maurer, who also resigned, said he would no longer be a member of the group’s executive committee. “It takes up too much time,” Jackson said this morning. “I abo have other interests that have influenced my decision.” Jackson’s term would have expired at the end of February, District headquarters, which supervises Tuscarawas County, for information concerning the legality of providing such funds. Deputy Welfare Director Richard E. Wood in letters dated Nov. 13 and Dec. 20, said that transient care is a permissible expenditure under the Ohio poor relief law and is the responsibility of the welfare department. In a number of Ohio districts, particularly in Stark County, private agencies such as the Salvation Army and the Volunteers of America were provided minimal funds to aid in such care. The amount of money extended to such agencies, Wood wrote, varies from place to place, and See AID, Page 2 Tuscarawas County Commissioners faced a $50,000 budget-cutting task as they began work today on the year’s appropriations for county offices. Their job was cut out for them when Auditor Donald Kinsey submitted certification of anticipated funds for the year. He estimated receipts for the general fund at $968,917.

The renovation involves repositioning a steel door and erecting a wall. The remodeling is designed to improve traffic efficiency and to provide a safer area to search prisoners. Construction, according to the police, should be completed Friday. By WALTER R. MEARS PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP)-Sen. Barry Coldwater accused President Johnson today of unwittingly enlisting in a leftist attack on American conservatives by charging that an atmosphere of hate was behind the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Coldwater called it “that hate theme” and said it is the “most, overdone, the most untruthful attack in the history of this country.” The Arizona senator, campaigning for the Republican presidential nomination, said he “was sorry to see that Mr. Johnson felt he had to resurrect the hate theme in refer- One-Way Traffic Enforcement On W. 6th St. Begins Signs have been erected on W. 6th St., between N.

In his State of the Union message, Johnson said: “My fellow Americans:    In these last seven sorrowful weeks we have learned anew that nothing is so enduring as DAY BRIGHTENER The upkeep of woman has alway* been tne downfall of man. The Dover Teachers' Assn. is bringing to Dover Mme. Claire L. Chennault, widow of Gen. Claire L. Chennault of the famous Flying Tigers. A militant foe of communism, Mrs. Chennault's voice is heard weekly in Free China, Red China, and Southeast Asia over the Voice of America. Mrs. Chennault will speak in the Dover High School auditorium Tuesday, Jan. 28, at 8 p.m. Her first-hand knowledge of the Far East lends a particular timeliness to her talk. Her lecture is open to the public. Mrs. Chennault's latest book, “Chennault and the Flying Tigers/' is the first complete story of her renowned husband's life and of the daring American pilots he organized into c formidable fighting group. Anna Chennault's previous best-selling book, ''A Thousand Springs/' is currently being made into a movie that is bound to attract wide attention. Mr s.

The treasurer explained that the lateness of 1963 tax computation: will necessitate his asking the Ohio Board of Tax Appeals for an extension beyond the Jan. 20 date set by law. Along with those for New Philadelphia and Uhrichsville, statements for perhaps 12 townships are still to be processed, County Auditor Donald Kinsey revealed today. The auditor explained the tardiness of the tax computation as being partly the result of last year’s delay caused by revaluation of county real estate done ; in 1962, and partly a result of the I county wide health levy and other issues passed in last November’s election. “We simply could not begin computation of tax rates for 1963,” Kinsey declared, “because these levies had not been determined before Nov. 5.” County Commissioners already have granted a 30-day extension from the normal tax payment See DATE, Pace 2 faith and nothing is so degrading as hate. “John Kennedy was a victim of hate — but he was also a builder of faith.” Coldwater also accused Johnson of tricky talk on federal spending. “This Congress is truely economy minded,” he said. “His administration is not.” In a three-page critique of Johnson’s message to Congress, he said the administration budget Estimate of $97.9 billion actually means a spending increases of several billion dollars. “The trick is that President Johnson is using the requested estimated figures of the Kennedy budget rather than the figures actually authorized by Congress,” Coldwater said. The Arizona senator said actual spending during the current fiscal year will total about $95 billion dollars. He said Congress has voted obligational authority for about $101 bilion, so Johnson’s request for $103.8 billion also is several billion dollars over the figure for the year ending next June 30.

Court Site Plans Under Consideration Tuscaraw'as County Commissioners today received layout plans from Walter Hanner Jr. for a proposed site for the Northern District County Court. The building, near City Hall on the Public Square in Dover, would provide approximately 1,-000 square feet of space, enough for a courtroom, office and a study for Judge Charles Eckert. Commissioner Richard De-muth said that Judge Eckert would be contacted before a final committment is made on any of the IO buildings viewed during a recent tour by commissioners.

I was looking for work. I tried.” These statements were made by Thomas K. Finley, 29, this morning after being questioned by Dover Mayor C. LeMoyne Luthy why he returned to Tuscarawas County after being given a suspended sentence and fine on conditions he leave for 2 years. Having heard Finley’s reasons, Mayor Luthy assessed the original sentence of $262 and 8 months in jail. He was later taken to county jail to serve the term, which will include laying out the fine at $3 per day if it is not paid. Admitting to Mayor Luthy that he knew the consequences if he returned, Finley said he had been looking for work in Columbus and also went to Virginia where he married Doris Case-beer, with whom he lived when he began having “neighbor trouble” on E. 7th St. When picked up by sheriff deputies Tuesday night, Finley and his wife were staying with his father near Mineral City. The incidents last September ultimately resulted in ll “general nuisance” charges. The young blonde wife, sobbing throughout this morning’s brief hearing, had been given a $56.20 fine and sentenced to 60 days in County Jail at that time for disorderly conduct, also filed by neighbors. Mrs. Finley, following the hearing, questioned Mayor Luthy about having a continuance of the case. She was advised it would be impossible. She stated she had contacted a local attorney earlier today, but he was in Cleveland and would not return until this afternoon. Finley admitted that he had been back ia the county for 2 weeks prior to his arrest. City Solicitor Mario Corsi also was present for the hearing. ’Differences' Seen Between 'Wants-Gets' By JACK BELL Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP)-A Congress pressed by President Johnson to cut taxes, enact civil rights legislation and war on poverty is unlimbering slowly. In a 41-minute State of th# Union speech interrupted a rec-Ord 80 times by applause, Johnson told the legislators Wednesday the nation can move forward under a new $97.9 billion budget to provide the greatest federal impetus to social welfare in history. Reaction to the President’s pledge of less spending and fewer federal employes was generally favorable. But it was tinged with bipartisan skepticism that the series of health, education, housing and job training programs he proposed could be carried out under a reduced budget. Several Republicans predicted there would be a wide “performance gap” between what the President asked and Congress produces. Urged by Johnson to move expeditiously, the Senate Finance Committee stepped up slightly the ponderous pace of its consideration of the House-passed $11 billion tax cut the President said is needed now “to keep the country moving.” It approved two provisions: a See SKEPTICAL, Page 9 Dover Police Investigate 2 Breakins Dover police today are invest!. gating 2 breaking and enterings.
