Tuscarawas Ave. at 7:43 last night in which fog and heavy smoke from rubbish fires played a major role. According to police, John T. Godfrey, 44, of Cambridge, drove his auto left of center in the dense smoke and collided nearly headon with a southbound car driven by Jennifer L. Smith, 16, of 418 Marian Ave. Miss Smith sustained bruises and a passenger in her car, Priscilla Sciarini, 17, of 607 Shafer Ave., suffered multiple face lacerations.

Post Office Job Resumes Contractors and workmen have returned to their jobs on the Dover Post Office following a "misunderstanding” which caused workers for several sub-contractors to walk off the job last week. Assistant Postmaster Vinton Jones said yesterday that the workmen returned Monday and the dispute involved just a "little misunderstanding. ” The remodeling and expansion job, started last fall under the General Administration Services of Chicago, is contracted by Shir-mer-Peterson Construction Co. of Cleveland. Charles Schirmer of the firm would not reveal the basis of the dispute, but it was rumored that it arose when the federal government failed to make partial payments to the contractor, who in turn could not pay his •ub-contractors. "Honey Baby," a canine passenger in the auto driven by John F. Swisshelm of Massillon, landed 'on the floor of the front seat following the mishap. He sat there until the car was towed away. According to Swisshelm, the dog, which suffered a cut mouth in the crash, had just been treated by a Sugarcreek veterinarian. 2 Injured In Phila Intersection Crash V ^Weathervane YESTERDAY High 58    Low    30 Elsewhere In U.S. High Low Pr.
