Despite the delay, the building will be ready within the 220-day completion date set when contracts were let in July to Unger Construction Co. of Gnadenhutten. Robinson explained the new office will provide 1,000 square feet more space than in the present office.

Sheriff Aides Find 'Caches' In Home, Wells By Pete Groh Daily Reporter Staff Writer Tuscarawas County Chief Sheriff Deputy John Barlock and 2 deputies sifted through woods, junk and autos at the trailer home of Clarence Abel Sr. at Sandyville Thursday afternoon, searching for loot taken last fall during breakins in the Mineral City area. Sheriff A. J. Young reports that Abel’s sons, Clarence Jr., 33, and Leroy, 19, are being held for the thefts and will be arraigned in Northern District County Court for grand larceny and breaking and entering. During the search, Barlock learned that some of the merchandise, valued near $1,000, was hidden in 2 abandoned wells, one of which was covered by a tent with a false floor and the other by a dog house. It was learned this morning that one of the brothers, following another interrogation session with Barlock, has admitted gas thefts from Tuscarawas Valley and Sandy Valley high schools and at a Sohio bulk plant at Bolivar. Young said the pair also will be questioned concerning other thefts in the area including breakins at Mineral City School, Casey’s Department Store, Halfway House and the Crossroads Shopping Center, only several miles from their home. Clarence Jr. told Barlock that he was involve4 in only one of the 6 thefts committed by his brother. “I just happened to be along,” Clarence said as he explained his connection in the theft of $40 in silver and $438 in merchandise from G. W. Lechner’s Hardware in Mineral City. The younger Abel, questioned Wednesday morning by Barlock and later released, says he was a “loner” in all of the jobs. Barlock doubts this. “I stole for the money,'* the youth explained, saying he was unemployed. When deputies searched yesterday, some of the merchandise was found at the Sandyville trailer. Some was found in a nearby woods and 2 pipe wrenches were located along a county road next to a bridge. Barlock said a hand pump and hose, also found in the woods, is the type used to steal gasoline from farm tanks. Barlock told the father that a possession of stolen property charge would not be filed against See AREA THEFTS, Pare 2 Income Getting Tax Slice Support WASHINGTON (AP) — President Johnson’s plea for enactment of a one-step reduction in the income tax withholding rate appears likely to win congressional approval. Sen. George A. Smathers, D-Fla., a senior member of the Finance Committee now considering the $11 billion tax cut bill, told a reporter he thought the request would easily command the needed votes. Chairman Wilbur D. Mills, D-Ark., of the House Ways and Means Committee, who will head his branch’s conferees on the measure, indicated in a separate interview that he was willing to support it. As the bill passed the House and now stands in Finance, it provides for a cut in the present 18 per cent withholding rate to 15 per cent this year, with a new permanent level of 14 per cent to start in 1965. Johnson whnts a one-step drop to 14 per cent. If Johnson’s argument carries, a married man with wages of $120 a week who claims exemptions for himself, his wife and two children would get take-home pay increase of $2.80 a week. While $12.80 is now withheld for income tax, the figure would be reduced to $10 under a 14 per cent withholding rate. The Senate committee continues Its work on the bill today, with administration supporters hoping the fast pace of the last two days can be maintained. Sen. Clinton P. Anderson, D-N.M., said Thursday: “I think we’re really moving now — we’ve covered more than 60 pages” of the 310-page bill. Johnson told a citizens cornin itte plugging for the tax bill Thursday that he wants the measure passed by the Senate before that body gets tangled up in a filibuster over civil rights. Every hour of delay on the tax measure “can keep many jobs away from many people for many weeks,” the President declared. Abandon Search For Lost Plane HONOLULU (AP) - Disheartened searchers finally have given up the hunt for nine men aboard an Air Force plane that vanished in the Pacific last week. One of the men was M. Sgt. Herbert M. O’Malley, the father of 14 children who didn’t have to make the flight. But his unit at Hill Air Force Base, Utah, home base of the plane, was short of men, so he put off his retirement and went along. Eight of the men were Air Force crewmen on the C124 Globemaster cargo plane, and one was a sailor bound for discharge who volunteered to accompany a comrade’s corps* to th* mainland. Deputy Earl Doriche (left) and Chief Deputy John Barlock examine the well under a doghouse where part of the loot was supposed to have been hidden. Looking for clues, deputies survey an old well hidden under a tent which had a false bottom. Although no stolen merchandise was found there yesterday, Leroy Abel said he had stashed it there before he became scared.
