Margaret Smith Plans Feminine 'First'? Maine Woman May Seek Top GOP Standard By BARRY SCHWEID WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Margaret Chase Smith of Maine is expected to announce today erat she will try for the Republican presidential nomination. If she takes the plunge and beats the half-dozen or so declared and undeclared aspirants to Hie GOP’s top prize — which political observers consider unlikely—she would be the first woman ever to run on the national ticket of a major political party. The first big step along this road would be announcement that she intends to Miter the New Hampshire presidential primary. More likely is a declaration that she will not discourage supporters from entering her name. There has been speculation that while the gray-haired, 66-year-old veteran of 15 years in the Senate may announce for the presidency, her real objective would be the vice presidential nomination. Mrs- Smith tried to scotch such thinking Sunday. She told an interviewer on WRC-TV’s “Sunday” show: “If I decide to run I will be a candidate for the presidency.” Could a woman win the nomination? “It would be an uphill job, but I think it is possible,” she ■aid. Mrs. Smith had been expected to announce her intentions Dec. 5 in a speech to tile Women’s National Press Club, her luncheon forum today. But she canceled that talk and other appearances immediately after receiving word of President Kennedy’s assassination. Already announced for the nomination are Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York, Sen. Barry Coldwater of Arizona and former Minnesota Gov. Harold E. Stassen. Former Vice President Richard M. Nixon, Gov. William W. Scranton of Pennsylvania and Gov. George Romney of Michigan are considered contenders by many political observers, although they haven’t said they are. Mrs. Smith considers herself an independent. She has described her position as “less liberal than that of Nelson Rockefeller and less conservative than that of Barry Coldwater.’ Sen.

CORRALS BUSINESS FOR GOSHEN 'Big Hoss'Gundy Leads!    'Rou' U.S. Super Rocket Launching Delayed By HOWARD BENEDICT AP Aerospace Writer CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) —A Saturn I super-rocket was to try to hurl the world’s largest satellite into orbit today and possibly give the United States the lead in the race for space rocket power. The 40-man launching team started final countdown at ll p.m. (EST) Sunday night, aiming for a blastoff time of IO a.m. If technical or weather problems delay the launch, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration set a cutoff time for 4 p.m. Later, a fueling problem developed in the first stage, delaying the launching until at least I p.m. National radio and television networks planned live coverage of the launching. Earlier this month, Dr. Hugh L. Dryden, deputy chief of the space agency, said, “we are drawing very close” to the Rus sians in rocket power and “as soon as the Saturn satellite has been placed in orbit we will have relieved this deficiency in weight - carrying ability we’ve labored under so long.” The rocket, 164 feet tall and weighing 562 tons, is the first in the Saturn I series with a live second stage, which burns high - energy liquid hydrogen. Successes were recorded on four earlier flights of the first stage, an eight-engine power-plant that generates 1.5 million pounds of thrust, equal to 34 million horsepower. If the rocket performs as planned, the second stage will ignite on the edge of space to propel into orbit a satellite weighing 37,700 pounds. The launching is the first of two scheduled from Cape Kennedy this week. Thursday, the Ranger 6 spacecraft is to be launched to the moon to take hundreds of closeup television pictures. DWI Trial Off, Count Is Reduced A charge of driving while under the influence of alcohol against James W. Arthurs, 34, of RD 3, New Philadelphia, has been reduced to a reckless operation count, according to officials of Central County District Court. A jury trial on the DWI charge was to begin Tuesday before Judge Clarence Ferrell. Arthurs, arrested by state patrolmen following a Dec. 24 accident, was given an “Intoximeter” test and the results were reported “positive.” Assistant County Prosecutor James Patrick this morning contended there was insufficient evidence to convict Arthurs. In a statement, he said: “After complete investigation, as a practical matter, we did not feel we could prove the intoxication part of the charge beyond a reasonable doubt.” The 25 prospective jurors, according to court secretary Marge Burlison, have been notified that the trial has been cancelled. Arthurs will appear Tuesday morning on the reckless operation charge. By James Davis Daily Reporter City Editor Leo Gundy likes to talk about Tuscarawas County and its industrial and business growth and for a good reason. He’s in it physically and financially. Tile residents of Gosh i Township have a particular interest, because that is where much of Gundy’s plans are being formulated. All Tuscarawas Countian, however, should be interested when applying the adage: "What’s good for one part of the county is good for the entire county.” Development of Leo’s Ponderosa (he is known as Hoss), the site of the old Royal Robinson Clay Products plant near Midvale, is the current project. Within the last year, Gundy located the Volkswagen dealership in Brightwood by buying the site, erecting the building and leasing it to the auto merchants. “With zoning the way it is in Dover and New Philadelphia, and the time involved in getting a site untangled from zoning red tape, the Ponderosa had definite advantages as far as I am concerned,” Gundy said. “When a representative of a prospective business stops in I can promise him a building right now. Five or 6 good businesses went to other counties within the last 3 years simply because of the time involved in getting them located.

Peking radio made a similar announcement. The French announcement said the two governments had agreed to establish diplomatic relations and to exchange ambassadors. There was no immediate Indication of how this step would affect the ties between France and the Nationalist Chinese re* gime of President Chiang Kai-shek on Formosa. French officials previously had said that Peking had not demanded that France break relations with Chiang as a condition for diplomatic ties, and the assumption was that France could therefore maintain relations with both re* gimes. Peking Radio said Franca and Red China have agreed to appoint ambassadors to each other within three months. In Washington, the U.S. Stat# Department called France’s recognition of Peking “an unfortunate step” and reaffirmed U.S. intentions to stand by the Nationalist regime. The State Department said it had “repeatedly expressed” its view to the French. The State Department said the French recognition was particularly unfortunate since it came “at a time when the Chinese Communists are actively See FRANCE, Fife 7 Youth Cleared After Manhunt ■hi mtmm Fire Runs I New Philadelphia — At 11:25 Saturday morning to Butler’s Market on W.
