Glenn Jr., one of America’s original space age heroes, entered politics today. Flashing the smile he’s made famous over the world, the 42-year-old Glenn—first American to orbit the earth—announced he will be a candidate for the Democratic nomination for the U. S. Senate from Ohio. He will oppose incumbent, 74-year-old Sen. Stephen M. Young for the nomination in Ohio’s primary election next May 5. He said he had passed up business offers which “would have made me a millionaire’’ to make the plunge. Aft (he same nounced he time, he an-was retiring from the Marine Corps. The grand ballroom of the Neil House was jammed by an estimated 400 newsmen and television equipment as he told of his decision. He said it was arrived at “only a few days ago.” The astronaut, famed for his quips as well as his dedication to the space program, rock ed the hall with laughter as he has done on hundreds of occasions since his triple orbit of the earth. In answer to a newsman’s remark that there had been recent criticism he was trading on his “name and fame” to enter the political field, Glenn said: “Men get to be known in many ways. Certainly any fame I have came from my work in the space program.” Almost bashfully he conceded “you have me over a barrel on this one,” and then looked at his dad and continued: “My father has been in the plumbing business in New Concord for many years. He was a good plumber and was well known. That’s where I got my good name.” The astronaut said that Congress “is an area in which I have had a life-long interest. To serve in a body whose actions help mold the destiny of America and the free world is certainly both a challenge and a high calling. “The purpose of this meeting then, is to declare myself a candidate for the Democratic nomination for United States See GLENN, Page 15 John Glenn leaves his Houston, Tex., home en route to Columbus where he made his political status known this morning. ★ MONDAY CONVENTION WRECKED?

Dover Crews Resume War Against Snow The “cold war” continues in Dover but the weary snow battlers are making progress with numb fingers crossed. Another heavy snowfall would just about finish the troops—temporarily at least. Service Director H. S. Ream said this morning that street crewmen resumed work last midnight after about 4 to 6 hours sleep. Some of their efforts have been handicapped by equipment breakdown under continuous usage. Ream also said that Robert Croy, Street Department foreman, has been on th* job M to 20 hours a day since the big snowfall and without overtime pay. Sewer crewmen John Poke and Gary Guimenti have oeen working continuously since 2 a.m. Thursday because of problems which arose after they had assisted with initial snow removal. “It’s been a rough week,’* Ream commented, “and we appreciate the public’s patience and cooperation.

John Wilson, 31, of Hazel Park, Mich., will be arraigned on charges of having entered the residence of Joanne Wilson at See JURORS, Page 2 By Richard Zimmerman Daily Reporter Columbus Bureau COLUMBUS — Launching of John H. Glenn into the Ohio political atmosphere has sent both parties into orbit and started an endless chain of speculation of “why” and “what now.” Pundits who were praising the Ohio Democratic party for finally looking like a unified state organization are sulking and Democratic State Chairman William Coleman is in a frenzy. The party’s endorsing convention, set to meet Monday, is in an impossible position. Sen. Stephen Young is scheduled as their keynote speaker and has County Dem Delegates To Hold Caucus Atty. Kenneth Ferrell, county Democrat executive committee chairman, said today that the 7 delegates to toe Ohio party caucus in Columbus on Sunday will meet in New Philadelphia tomorrow to plan their course of action. According to the county bylaw's, Atty. Ferrell, County Court Judge Richard Musgrave, central committee chairman, and State Rep. Jess Dempster are the automatic delegates. Joe Cappell, Harold Knapp and Eugene Hanhart of Dover and Danny Johnson of New Philadelphia are the appointees. Announcement of delegates to the national convention, including those from the 16th Congressional District, has been delayed pending a statement of intent from President Lyndon Johnson to Ohio Democrats. The Ohio situation was further complicated by Astronaut John Glenn’s announcement that he would seek the Senate seat now held by Stephen Young, who was to have been the Ohio party’s second choice as “favorite son.” already been set up as second choice favorite son, after President Johnson. Yet most of the delegates will be watering at the mouth to endorse Glenn, if for no other reason than almost without exception they belive he would be 5 times the stronger candidate to oppose Cong. Robert Taft. Of the 3 alternatives open— endorse Glenn, endorse Young or not endorse anyone for the Senate — the latter choice would lead to the best temporary solution. But it would mean toe idea of a pre-primary convention would die at the very moment of its birth. Its death might finally mean the beginning of the end for its creator, Chairman Coleman, as well. Meanwhile, former Gov. Michael DiSalle is laughing in the wings. He went on record against the pre-primary convention idea some time ago. Only if Young steps out would the state-wide Democratic party be anything other than the shambles it has been for years. Some say he will, but his closest See 'DAGGER’, Pace 15 Tax Deadline Is Extended The Ohio Board of Tax Appeals yesterday approved County Treasurer Victor MartineHi’s request for an extension of time for payment of real estate taxes and assessments to Feb. 14. Mar-tinelli was forced to make the request because of delay in mailing of tax statements to county residents. The treasurer today said he hoped all statements will have been mailed by Jan. 31. This will allow at least 2 weeks for payment of taxes, although he said he hopes that most taxpayers will have 20 days or more notice of same.

The discussion arose when Karume stormed in to denounce the American newsmen for stories he said they had attempted to file on the uprising in the tiny country. Picard tried to defend the See U.S. CONSUL, Page 2 I I A    !■_*__ M   _         _ Highlights Week “National Junior Achievement Week” Jan. 27-Feb.

Traffic was temporarily detoured on the south side of New Philadelphia yesterday while Ralph Simmers & Son, Movers and Erectors, transported a house owned by Percy Britt from Clay St. to Blake St. Ext. The move was necessary for construction of the Route 250 and 8 bypass. Britt plans to remodel the house in its new location and prepare it for occupancy. The movers encountered no difficulty with road conditions as they had put a snowplow to work along the route, but the narrow street caused them to remove a telephone pole, lamp post and some shrubbery near the new site.
