Dover Daily Reporter (Newspaper) - July 18, 1964, Dover, Ohio Soap Box Racers Primed For Sunday 'Sendoff Tension will be high and butterflies will be jumping Sunday when 51 boys test the results of months of hard work and skill in the sixth annual luscarawas County Soap Box Derby on Wabash Ave. in New Philadelphia. Tire weatherman says ideal weather conditions are in store, unlike those of last year which caused the race to be postponed for 2 days. The competition will begin at 12:30 p.m. with the traditional “Oil Can Derby" in which Dover Mayor G. LeMoyne Luthy attempts to defend his crown against ’newcomer” Mayor Joe Pritz of New Philadelphia. Joe Elco Jr. of New Philadelphia, last year’s champion, will make his run prior to the first scheduled race at I. Judging from previous years, the winning time for the 640-foot downhill race should be around 23.5 seconds. A crowd of more than 2.000 is expected to turn out for the Derby, which involve* IO more boys than a year ago. Fifteen-year-old Glenda Ellwood of Stone Creek will reign as Queen. Rita Roush, IA of Strasburg, and Brenda Festi, 13, of Dover, will comprise her court. See DERBY, Page 37The Daily Reporter Y'OL 61. NO. 6.    44    PAGES.
