Dover Daily Reporter (Newspaper) - January 13, 1964, Dover, Ohio 7-Inch Fall, County Area A blustery Sunday afternoon arow flurry, which for a while appeared to be blowing itself out, was still at it at noon today with more than a 7-inch blanket on the ground and drifts of several feet. The snow squall, which is expected to end late this afternoon, closed all county schools, highways and back roads despite efforts of snowplow and grader crews. The heavy snow prevented many employes from reaching their jobs this morning and made others late. Deliveries, including rural mail, were slowed considerably, but Dover Postmaster Clifford Hagloch said all local carriers were out on schedule. The temperature failed to im-peed the snowfall. Yesterday’s high was only 17 degrees and the overnight low was 12. It was 13 at 7 a.m. today. The first big snowfall of the season was 6 inches Jan. I. * The heavy snowfall caused little damage, as Dover Light Plant, General Telephone Co. Co. and Ohio Power Co. officials reported “business as usual” this morning. Dover’s snowplow crews went out at 8 last night to clear main streets and downtown area and made noticeable headway against the fluffy onslaught. Service Director H. S. Ream said his men will remain on the job until all streets have had at least- one pass with a grader. Water Department Supt. Walter Hisrich has requested residents and merchants not to cover fire hydrants with shoveled snow. “It’s not going very fast,” Jim Rankin, New Philadelphia street superintendent, said this morning concerning the snow removal process there. He reported that 4 street crews were on the job and an attempt is being made to clear sidewalks with 4 other groups. Rankin said that 4Cft St. NW had been cleared 5 times and in each case it has drifted over again. Mayor Joseph Pritz said he was satisfied with the job being done, considering the equipment and manpower available. Mounds of snow are piled high in Public Square in New Philadelphia with most of the main arteries having been “hit” by the scraper blades. State patrolmen report that major county highways are snow-covered but passable. Drifting has created one-lane traffic on Route 21, north of Dover, on Route 16, south of New Philadelphia, and Route 39 west of Dover and east of New Philadelphia. All Carroll County roads are drifted shut. Sheriff deputies report all county roads are impassable Area wreckers were busy all morning towing stalled motorists out of drifts and ditches. % VOL 60.

Joint OAS Authority Seeks Panama Peace By JOE MCGOWAN Associated Press Writer PANAMA (AP)—Amid some signs of diminishing tension between the United States and Panama, U.S. personnel returned today to the embassy building in downtown Panama. Diplomatic sources reported that the United States and Panama agreed to set up a joint authority with the Organization of American States in an effort to keep peace along the restive Canal Zone border. But agreement on machinery for the peace-keeping operation remained to be worked out in a final meeting of the OAS mission with U.S. and Panama representatives before the mission returns to Washington. U.S. personnel quit the embassy building and burned secret papers Friday, fearing that tile building might become a target for anti-U.S. demonstrations.

Legislators, investors, tobacco growers, cigarette manufacturers, legal and health authorities want to know first and foremost: Will he quit or not? Will he cut down? What will happen to cigarette sales? • Just how loud will the public reaction to the federal report be? On those questions hinge a number of important decisions in coming days: The tobacco companies have been invited to meet with the Television Code Review Board in Miami Beach Jan. 22-23. Subject: The federal report and what it means to cigarette advertising on television. The American Cancer Society’s board of directors meets this month to assess educational campaigns against cigarette smoking, called by the federal report the major cause of lung cancer, the leading fatal malignancy in men. Several bills will be intro it §| duced designed to better arm federal agencies to regulate the sale and advertising of cigarettes and to force the cautionary labeling of cigarettes as potentially hazardous. Federal courts may be the scene of another test of the scientific report. Will it encourage further damage suits against tobacco companies by lung cancer victims? Will it improve their chance of collecting? The new report—14 months in the making — cited cigarette smoking as the major cause of lung cancer, a significant cause of cancer of the larynx, and associated it with a number of other cancers from those of the oral cavity to the bladder. And there was an association —but not yet a proof of cause-bet ween cigaretttes and heart and blood vessel disease, and See SMOKER, Page 2 New Construction Tops IV2 Million In Dover For '6T New construction in Dover during 1963 totaled $1,676,545, Service Director H.

The five-man delegation from the OAS arranged for a final meeting today to settle technical details for the peace authority proposed by Argentina. Informants said the United States and Panama would each have one military man and civilian on the authority, with a neutral OAS representative as chairman. Alfredo Vazquez Car-ricosa, Colombian ambassador to the OAS, has been proposed, they added. Diplomatic sources said it had not been decided whether the peace-keeping group would use military or civilian forces to police the border area. It was said earlier that troops from both the United States and Panama might make up the patrols. Edwin M. Martin, U.S. assistant secretary of state, represented the United States in the OAS negotiations and told newsmen at 1:55 a.m.: “We have made reasonable progress.” Galileo Solis, Panamanian foreign minister, said as he left the meeting: “Slowly we marching forward.” Representatives Thomas Mann, assistant secretary State for inter-American fairs, and Secretary of Army Cyrus R.
