S., Panama Resume Diplomatic Relations; Canal Talks' Delayed By THEODORE A, EDIGER PANAMA (AP) - The United States and Panama agreed today to re-establish diplomatic relations “as quickly as possible" and to open discussions SO days after resumption of relations on all issues between the two countries. Hie agreement did not specifically mention the treaty giving the United States control of the Panama Canal Zone, which Panama wants revised. But its ¥ language made clear this would be among the issues to be discussed. Panamanian President Roberto Chiari’s press officer, Fabian Velarde, said his government would wait awhile, perhaps a week, “to let things cool off* before resuming relations with the United States. He said Panama then would ask a third government to advise Washington of the desire to restore relations, which Chi-★ ar! broke off at the height of the crisis last weekend. The intermediary is expected to be Costa Rica, which was named to handle Panama’s affairs hi Washington during the break. The agreement was reached by Edwin M. Martin, President Johnson’s special envoy, and Panamanian Foreign Minister Galileo Solis, meeting with the peace committee of the Organization of American States. ★ Dover if es    Safe At Air Base Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Cecil of 408 E. 18th St, “The schools were closed down that day and who flew to Panama 2 weeks ago and just be- just at this moment Linda is preparing to leave fore the rioting there, are “safe and sound” in for classes for the first time since the closing, the home of their son, Lt Col.

A total of $968,917 had been certified to diem by Auditor Donald Kinsey last week. Last August, the budget requests made by 36 offices under the commissioners’ control totaled $1,040,468 or $51,511 more than revenue anticipated by Kinsey. In further appropriations, the commissioners allowed the Road Sunday Fights Still Under Investigation No charges have been filed as yet against any of the 3 Dover men involved in 2 incidents which occurred early Sunday morning, Police Chief Garrison G. Groh said today. Edward H. Chrusciel Jr., 18, of 2104 Wooster Ave., who admitted to police he had been fighting with Ronald Staider, 19, of 217 Hemlock Ave., is still hospitalized with a fractured jaw, and Lewis Brown of 446 Seneca Dr., also still in Union Hospital with a broken wrist suffered when he was reportedly thrown out of a residence on Broad St., gave statements yesterday to Chief Groh. Chrusciel confirmed Stalder’s statement that they had not been getting along “for a couple of years’’ and that he had been seeing Stalder’s girlfriend.” “It doesn’t seem to me that Chrusciel even struck a blow,” Groh said, “so I don’t think he’ll be charged.” Groh added that he would see Solicitor Mario Corsi today to determine how to proceed on the case. Brown, according to Groh, •aid he was afflicted with “blacking out” periods and the last thing he remembered prior to waking up in the hospital was betag at home. Lewis’ wallet was intact, Groh said, when bs was hospitalized. and Bridge Fund $1,023,143 which had been certified and kept fairly close ta their appropriations for 9 other special funds under their jurisdiction. Despite having to cut $60,000, the commissioners still ware able to increase amounts appropriated for certain funds. The greatest increase allowed was for the Courthouse and Jail Fund with $48,365 being allocated compared with $41,265 asked for ta the budget submitted. Another large increase in allocations was made for insurance with $13,500 betag allowed over the $8,000 budget request. During 1963, this fund had $13,499 ta ex penditures, whereas the budget set for the year had been $7,500. The county's share in retirement pay for county employes was likewise increased to $38,000 over the $34,000 budget request. Hie commissioners’ own fund allocation of $32,700 also marks Feb. 14 Date Requested As Tax Deadline Permission to extend the time of payment on the December, 1963 real estate taxes to Feb. 14, has been requested by County Treasurer Victor Martinelli from the Board of Tax Appeals. Martinelli said the board, in the past, has always honored such a request. County Commissioners had already extended the date from Dec. 20 to Jan. 20, but tardiness in computation of the taxes has delayed mailing of statements to county taxpayers. Statements for 5 of 6 townships are still to be mailed after they are turned over by the auditor’s office to the treasurer. New Philadelphia Corporation, New Philadelphia School District, Goshen Township, Roswell, Barnhill and Midvale taxpayers have been sent statements in the last 5 days, Martinelli said. an increase of $4,000 over the 1964 budget request made earlier. Hie only other increases noted in die allocation with respect to toe 1964 budget that had been previously set were $600 more for the treasurer’s office, $300 in toe $10,350 appropriation made for the Children’s Home, and $300 increase in toe $1,000 al- See BUDGET, Pa re 2 ON THE INSIDE Martin, Solis and the OAS group had been negotiating since Sunday night. A communique issued by the OAS committee said Panama and toe United States “agreed” to begin formal discussions which will be initiated SO days after diplomatic relations are re-established by means of representatives who will have sufficient powers to discuss without limitations all existing matters of any nature which may affect toe relations between the United States and Panama.” The canal treaty is toe chief “existing matter.” Informants in Washing ton said a copy of the OAS communique received from toe U. S. Embassy in Panama said nothing about “formal” discussions between the two sides but that they had agreed to begin discussions on all existing matters of any nature” affecting U.S.-Patiama relations. At the outset of toe OAS-sponsored talks Sunday, Panama had insisted that resumption of diplomatic relations should be preceded by a strong U.S. declaration of intent to review toe 1903 treaty that is the United States perpetual sovereignty over toe Canal Zone. Hie United States reportedly balked at making such a pledge under pressure. Panama Is not expected to call on toe United States to get out of the Canal Zone, which cuts the strategic Latta-Ameri-can country in half. Solis has made clear that Panama is not interested ta running the canal. He stressed, however, that his government will seek to reduce the boundaries of the zone, which is IO railes wide and extends 36 miles from the Carib- See RELATIONS, Pare 2 Dennison, Uh ville Boards Get Report Recommendation for creation of a new city school district embracing Uhrichsville and Dennison, and any other districts disposed to join such a union, was received from the State Department of Education when members of the school boards of both cities held a special meeting at Uhrichsville High last night.

Aside from that, ifs pretty funny.” This was the reaction of Gay Conley, 50, Navarre, who drove a truck pulling a tri-axle trailer from Cadiz to Navarre last night on Routes 22, 21 and 250. Today, Conley spent the morning looking for the 500-pound, center double-wheel assembly including the brake drum, which was lost somewhere along the route without him being aware of it. He found it on Route 250 south of Uhrichsville at ll a.m., police report. Conley set a value on the assembly at $150 and said the tires are 10.00 x 20 (truck size) Goodyear recaps. Altogether, toe errant mechanism weighs about 500 pounds, he said. Except for terse announcements, perennial candidates for public office, usually have little to say when they make “I do not choose to run” statements. Therefore it was just a little unusual when Hie Daily Reporter received from Joe Coppell of 208 Prospect St., Dover, an announcement that, despite rumors, he will not be a candidate for county commissioner—or any other office. It wasn’t brief—but it was sound political philosophy. Cappell, who was appointed in 1961 by toe Democratic Executive Committee to fill the unexpired term of toe late Delbert Clark as commissioner, was nominated in 1962 but was defeated by Richard Demuth (R) ta November. Hie Doverite also ran for state representative in the primary of 1954 when there was a large field. Vernon Hisricfa took the nomination and later was elected. Cappell, in 1956, also was a candidate for treasurer ta toe primary but bowed to incumbent Vie Martinelli. A district representative of Imperial Book Co., Cappell had toe following to say in his “not a candidate” announcement: “This time of year toe news is filled with announcements of hopefuls for public office. Some are familiar, others are new ones, all to be received with various degrees of interest. “Because I have been a candidate ta toe past, making many friends, my announcement is why I will not be a candidate this year. My decision was difficult, not because of disappointing some friends, but because of the fondness and appeal that politics has always held for me and toe obligation I feel I have to it. “Its educational benefits, friends and people I have met See CAPPELL, Pare 7 Second Mineral City Youth Is Arrested In Theft Spree Tuscarawas County Sheriff A. J. Young announced this morning that John Allen St. George, 19, of Mineral City, has been jailed in connection with breakins and thefts in the Dover, Mineral City and Sandyville area. St. George reportedly has admitted being accomplice of Clarence Jr., 33, and Leroy Abel, 19, who already have pleaded guilty to several of the thefts in Common Pleas Court. Dean De Af att to Receives Nomination To West Point Dean H. DeMattio, son of Mr. and Mrs. Herman DeMattio of RD I, New Philadelphia, was named today by 16th District Rep. Frank T. Bow of Canton as one of the latter’s 2 principal candidates for admission to the United States Military Academy (West Point). Bow also nominated Terry K. Clarke of Canton for vacancies to be filled in the class beginning in July. Clarke is a Canton Lincoln High senior. DeMattio, a senior at Midvale High School, ranks among the top students ta his class and las been a standout athlete for the Blue Devils in 4 sports— ootball, basketball, baseball and track. He was selected as a first-team offensive end on the past season’s Associated Press All-Ohio Class A selections, and was named the Tuscarawas County A Class A League’s most valuable player a year ago when he set a new school season sewing Chief Deputy John Barlock said that St. George also will be charged under an information. The younger Abel, who at first claimed he was a “loner” in the jobs, implicated St. George after additional questioning by Young and Barlock. In addition to 9 thefts earlier reported, Leroy Abel and St. George also have admitted theft and vandalism at Howenstine’s Store in Bolivar; stealing tires and transmission parts at Graef Ford Co. at Bolivar; gasoline from Ehler’s Store at Zoarville; tools from Alexander’s Coal Co. at Mineral City; oil and tools from Mineral City Gulf Service; tires from Mart Sand Pontiac Co. in Dover; carburetors and a torch from a Dover area garage, and numerous tachometers from autos parked in the Dover area. Young indicated that additional charges are not expected to be fifed against either of the Abels since they have already pleaded guilty to the other thefts.

Jennings, a senior at Wooster High. Named alternates to Clarke tamed in the department’s building survey report. The survey was made last November by W. D. Darling, assistant superintendent of public instruction, who signed the report, and George Garrison. Darling pointed out that purpose of the survey was to evaluate school buildings in both cities. He said: “We were seeking answers to 3 questions: Is it feasible to merge these 2 districts into one administrative unit? If consolidation occurs, what is the best educational use of existing facilities? Would additional buildings, if any, be needed for the consolidated district?” The findings, as contained ta the report, follow: (1)—The Dennison Exempted Village and Uhrichsville City School Districts could, if combined into one district, operate an educational program equal to or better than toe programs now offered separately at a cost that would not exceed the present levels. The combination into one high school would increase the course offerings to both toe Dennison and Uhrichsville pupils. Advantages to both student bodies would accrue from wider competition and toe opportunity to sec tion by ability or by interest. Increased efficiency in the use of teacher time, building space and equipment could be had particularly in such subjects as Shorthand II, foreign languages, advanced math, chemistry and physics. The combination of administrative and supervisory staffs should strengthen both the elementary and secondary programs. Savings in operating costs should result from toe purchasing of supplies and equipment as a unit, from the elimination of duplications in overhead and by the gradual integration of services. We would suggest that any savings effected to be used to improve services. (2)—Hie present Uhrichsville High would serve the combined district as a 4-year or as a senior high school facility for the foreseeable future. It will be adequate for the present curriculum and will allow some flexibility in consideration of an enriched course of study. It will not house an extensive vocational program if such program included several Trade and Industrial courses. The pupil capacity of this building ranges from an optimum figure of 822 to a crowded capacity of 950. This optimum capacity limits the classrooms to 25 pupils each and the laboratories, shops and gymnasium to 65 per cent of the total number of pupil stations. Our enrollment projections, based on the pupils now in school and considering the dropout rate over the past 5 years, indicates an average 4-year high school population of 800 for both districts through September I, 1968. The average for senior high, grades 10-12, would be 570. This building is in very good condition. (3)—The new Dennison shop-music building could fill a real need in a combined school district.

He was referring to Monday’s announcement that 6 city funds had overdrawn theta 1963 appropriations by $44,604. Indicating that the city will live within theta budgets on a businesslike basis, Mayor Pritz says he has asked for budget requests from city department heads. The proposed budget for this year, Pritz said, will be presented to Council at its Jan. 27 meeting. Mayor Pritz stated that outstanding bills totaling nearly $29,000 will be paid as soon as possible. To prevent a recurrence of a similar situation at the end of 1964, Pritz said a monthly check will be made on the finances of each department and spending will be curtailed on any one which seems to be destined for “red ink.” ■Weathervane YESTERDAY High 19    Low 2 The Weather Elsewhere High Low Pr« Albuquerque, clear 28 9 ..

Country living is not all it is cracked up to be, especially with a heavy snow. A case in point is Robert Fiddler of RD I, Mineral City, who is feuding, fussing and cussing in frustration over 1,000 feet of 5-foot drifted snow in his lane which is blocking him from access to old Route 8, near Rock Cut Bridge. Fiddler, who stated he was not going to pay “one cent to get my lane plowed,” claimed an emergency situation exists. He said that he had only a 10-day supply of hay left for 3 cattle and a pony and that calls for help to Sandy Township trust ees, County Commissioners and the County Engineer’s office have brought no satisfaction. Besides asking the newspaper to print- his plight, Fiddler asked for the governor’s telephone number and said something about also calling the Army if he doesn’t get any satisfaction from down Columbus way. City Editor Jim Davis mentioned something about a lot of other people being in the same boat — or should we say snow? “That’s their problem,” Fiddler countered. “I fought for my country during war and now I’m fighting for myself. I want my lane opened!” ;
