Rutledge of New Ph iladelphia this morning co infirmed rumors that negotiations are underway with Pittsburgh Plate Glass Co. to purchase and reopen the Midvale Coal Mine Rutledge is a son of Robert W Rutledge, original founder of the mine. The mine, closed last August by the Pittsbugh firm because of "high operating costs,” employed approximately 140 persons, including supervisors. Conditions for reopening the mine under a union contract was set down nearly 2 weeks ago in letters to former employes of the mine. "If an agreement to these conditions can be readied with the job applicants,” Rutledge said, “then I will proceed with efforts to acquire the mine and form a new company. ‘‘If these conditions are not met, I will break off negotiations for the property.” Tommy William of Bellaire, a district union representative, told Hie Daily Reporter recently that 3 of the conditions seemed acceptable, while a fourth, concerning seniority rights, would require more study. Two meetings of Midvale Local 1496 of the United Mineworkers of America have been held since the letter from Rutledge. William stated: “We are confident we can work this (seniority rights) out.” Take Heed! Hie specter of a terrible child-killer was resurrected in Dover yesterday afternoon. Three discarded refrigerators with doors intact were found at the city dump by the street crew. Service Director H. S. Ream ordered that the doors be broken off to avert possibility of tragedy. ‘‘The city has an ordinance against discarding iceboxes or refrigerators,” Mayor C. Le-Moyne said today, ‘‘which still have the doors on them. It has 6tem penalties and we are going to enforce it.” News Briefs LONDON (AP) — President Johnson informed Britain today that U.S. troops will take part in an international peace-keeping force for Cyprus if satisfactory arrangements are made, informed sources reported. According to William, the policy on seniority rights dates back to 1922 and is widely accepted in Ohio and West Virginia. The other conditions were: to operate under a union contract; each employe must pass a preemployment physical examination, and that all past precedents will be abolished. lh a prepared statement released this morning, Rutledge stated: ‘‘It is our intent under the above conditions to hire between 50 and 75 qualified men to start production. As the sales requirements increase additional employes will be hired with preference given to former Midvale Mine workers.” What about the feasibility of reopening? Rutledge said he believed “the mine could be made profitable if it is opened under the conditions set forth.” He added that Pittsburgh Plate Glass Co. abandoned the mine because of “high costs of the operation coupled with the steadily decreasing selling prices of high quality ‘deep mine' coal over the last several years.” It was noted this morning that 2 weeks of preparatory work would be necessary after contracts are signed. The new company would work on a single shift basis with the possibility of adding another 40 men at a later date for a second shift. The Midvale Mine had operated with 2 shifts. Rutledge emphasized that the negotiations with the Pittsburgh firm are*on a “conditional basis.” Bobbie Landed Brooks By CIC The name is Bobbie Brooks! And it is official! Bobbie Brooks Inc. of Cleveland, in a nationwide press release today, announced its intention to establish a dress plant in Tuscarawas County. The announcement, drafted by top officials of Bobbie Brooks yesterday afternoon, culminates a 3-month sustained effort by the Community Improvement Corp. of Tuscarawas County to “land” the plant, heretofore tagged as “one of the country’s largest manufacturers of women’s apparel.” Maurice Saltzman, president of Bobbie Brooks, stated that an agreement is expected to be signed in the near future with the CIC to establish a pilot plant, the second to be opened by Bobbie Brooks in Ohio in the last 6 months. “Discussions involve establishing temporary quarters for the training of about 50 employes, beginning in mid-February, with a pilot plant of 20,000 square feet to be built during the next 90 days, followed by a gradual employment build-up to from 125 to 150 persons, mostly women,” Saltzman said today. “If the pilot operation works out successfully, it is expected that it will within 2 years be expanded into a new plant up to 40,000 square feet in size and employing up to 400 persons.” Profane Gas Office Robbed The Protane Gas Co. office at 401 W. 3rd St., Dover, was robbed of $111.95 sometime Tuesday night, Dover police reported this morning. It was the latest in a series of burglaries in the Dover-New Philadelphia area. The breakin was discovered at 11:30 a.m. yesterday by Mary J. Domer, the firm’s head bookkeeper, and reported to police by Gene Martin, branch manager. Investigation determined that the money was taken from a petty cash box in the front office. Nothing else was disturbed, H. H. Burris, the company’s manager said today. The thief climbed a fence and entered the building through a rear door, he added.

Columbus Housewife Plans World Flight The proposed Tuscarawas County plant is part of an overall expansion program for Bobbie Brooks, whose sales totaled $75,762,000 during the fiscal year ended last April 30 and are up substantially for the current fiscal year to date. A 20,000 square foot pilot plant was opened m Middletown last September and a 40,000 square foot plant was opened recently at Washington, Pa., to replace an existing pilot operation there. Bobbie Brooks and its subsidiaries now operate 17 plants, including (me at Cleveland and one at Bellaire, and also utilize the services of approximately 40 contractor plants. Saltzman stated the decision to locate 2 plants in Ohio was influenced by the extensive assistance offered in labor surveys and other plant location services by the Ohio Department of Development, including personal interest by Gov. James Rhodes in finding locations to meet the company’s needs. “The Tuscarawas County site was elected,” Saltzman said, “because of surveys showing good availability of potential employes, desirable location for shipment of finished products to the company’s national distribution centai at Cleveland, and general community interest in the plant project as reflected by CIC representatives, Atty. James Stephenson, Ray Adkins, Richard) Rea, James Knapp, James Lon-ergan and Donald Hinson.” The proposed plant originally will make dresses. However, company officials said that it might also make women’s suits at a later date, in view of the rapid expansion of this phase of the company’s business. Electricians and workmen already are installing sewing machines and other equipment in the Robb Building on E. Iron See BOBBIE BROOKS, Page 2 His Technique Aids Business Maurice Saltzman Bobbie Brooks President Firm s Growth Seen Annually COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A 38-year-eld Columbus housewife is brushing up on her instrument flying before trying what no woman ever has accomplished-flying an airplane around the world. Mrs. Jerrie Mock, an active pilot for eight years, says she plans to circle the globe in a single - engine Cessna airplane i within the next few weeks. She plans to fly alone and j estimates the trip will take approximately three weeks. “I’ve had all sorts of offers from other women who want to go with me,” she said, “but there just isn’t room. I’ve got so much radio equipment and gasoline aboard, I just couldn’t squeeze another person hi any where, even into the luggage compartment.” It was 27 years ago that Amelia Earhart attempted the trip^ on what proved to be an illfated flight for her and her navigator, Capt. Fred Noonan. Mrs. Mock’s proposed route is similar to Miss Earhart’s, but with slight variations to accommodate present air regulations over various countries, and to take advantage of newly established electronic navigation facilities. “The trip should be routine,” Mrs. Mock-says. “It’s been a quarter of a century since Amelia Earhart tried it. We have had a tremendous improvement in weather foresee FLIGHT, Pace 9 Store Owner Halts Theft The Sheriff’s Department has issued an alert for a 6-foot, 160-pound youth wearing a grey jacket, who broke into Yenny Electric and TV at 112 5th St. NW, Strasburg last night. The contents of the cash register were intact, as the armed burglar’s attempts were thwarted by the appearance at 8:45 of Fred Yenny, owner. A storeroom window had been broken to gain entrance, and the cash register was damaged. The thief escaped by breaking a handle on the back door. Yenny told Policeman Ed Smith the man was wearing a mask. A sheriff deputy took fingerprints. The vast $15 billion women’s wear market’s fastest growing segment, that of young adult garments, is dominated by Bobbie Brooks Inc. of Cleveland and its subsidiaries, Stacy Ames — Kelly Arden, Colebrook and Stretching Combined sales last year totalled $75,762,400 with net profits earned of $3,403,800. Both figures indicate substantial increases from the previous year, 18.5 and 20 per cents, respectively. Sales last year were 3 times higher than in 1959, while net income was almost SVz times higher. While these figures are dazzling, they are no more so than the record of Bobbie Brooks Inc.’s 2>-year history, which has reached new records every year m both sales and profits. The growth of Bobbie Brooks from an annual volume of $25 million to over $75 million in 4 years reflects not only a successful design and marketing concept, but a back-up organization able to put (his concept into action on a large-scale national basis. A GOOD EXAMPLE is provided by a single fashion group from the firm’s 1963 fall line, Robinson Clay Resumption Set In Mid-February Richard Haddon, superintendent of Robinson Clay Products Co. plants at Parral and on the Strasburg-Bolivar Road, said this morning that full production probably will be resumed in mid-February. Sixty production employes at Parral and another 25 at the other plant have been laid off since Dec. 20. Haddon added that maintenance and supervisory crews are on the job, renovating some of the production lines and installing new equipment. I called “Country Looks.” This group includes 32 separate gar-I meats — culottes, wrap-arounds, I knee ticklers, shifts, etc., each 1 available in several colors and ! all sizes. And this is just one individual group out of the full line of approximately 450 styles for just one 10-week selling season. According to company officials, they have opened for themselves, by supplying merchandise which is coupled with a comprehensive year-around line of basic-in-stock and extensive color and style coordination, a market which has forced multiple-buying. For example, a girl who buys a new Bobbie Brooks skirt immediately becomes a customer See FIRM’S GROWTH, Pa*e 5 By Tom Parker Daily Reporter Staff Writer Fancy a tall, attractive, well-groomed young woman waiting on a corner for a bus. An energetic little man with roving brown eyes, a receding hair line, who is bespectacled, approaches her. “I like the color of your dress. Is it the shade of green you prefer?” he says, smiling. Maurice Saltzman, according to a Cleveland Plain Dealer article by Al Ostrow last spring, has used that technique for years and he reports that it works perfectly. Some times, though, his inquiry has produced the threat to call the cops but he has a practiced response for that delicate situation. “Look, lady,” he explains, “I’m doing a little research. I happen to be the president of Bobbie Brooks.” And he produces his calling card, which is as simple and tasteful as he believes clothing should be, to clinch his identity. The hundreds of women Maurice Saltzman has approached this way, he reports, are convinced that they were confronted by an authentic and respectable tailoring tycoon, and not a would-be Don Juan, and pour out a torrent of opinions. “All women have a million ideas about clothing,” Saltzman explains, “And I like to listen to them.” Such listening — plus constant market research — helped cre ate the Bobbie Brooks success story — annual sales, about $75 millions, worth of clothing—which began with the birth of Maurice Saltzman in Cleveland on May 25, 1918. His mother died when he was 2 and his father 2 years later. He grew up in the Jewish Orphan Home and slept in a dormitory with 174 other boys. His firm, Bobbie Brooks Inc. was born when he, at the age of 21, borrowed $2,000 and went into partnership with Max Reiter, See TECHNIQUE, Page 5 Rural Guests Get Computer Fads At Fete If anyone is considering the possibility of escaping the whirl of the computer in this modern-day life by fleeing to the farm, forget it.

(AP) —The camera-laden Ranger S spacecraft was rocketed toward the moon today on a mission to snap and relay to earth more than 3,000 pictures of the binary surface. An Atlas-Agena rocket, 102 feet tall and weighing 150 tons, blazed away from Cape Kennedy at 10:49 a.m. EST to start the 804-pound gold-and-silver-plated craft on its lunar journey. If all goes well, Ranger 6 will cover 230,187 miles in 66 hours and crash land on the moon early Sunday. If the payload, which resembles a giant dragonfly, succeeds, it will break a string of ll failures dating to 1958. The flight is the first U.S. lunar attempt since Ranger 5 fizzled in October 1962, prompting a revamping of the program. The Soviets have announced three moon launchings, two of them successful. Lunik 2 crashed onto the moon and Lunik 3 took the first pictures of the moons hidden side, both in 1959. In a 10-minute session before Ranger 6 crash-lands on the moon, its six cameras are to snap hundreds of pictures and transmit them to a ground station at Goldstone, Calif. Tile cameras are to start shooting 900 miles from the moon and continue until an instant before impact. the size of an automobile. H. M. Schurmeier, Ranger project manager for the space agency’s jet propulsion laboratory, said the major goal is to obtain photos of dark areas that from the earth appear to be reL atively flat and therefore possible landing spots for astronaut!. More than 40 observatories around the world planned to direct telescopes at the moon in an effort to spot the Ranger 8 impact. When Russia’s Lunik 2 hit, a Hungarian observatory reported sighting a dark cloud— perhaps of dust — in the vicinity of the landing area. Sky's The Limit!
