WHALEN j Simpsons’ apartment is. NEW YORK (AP)—Only min- They knocked on the shaft utes after Selma Simpson saw her husband precede her into their apartment building, the self-service elevator returned to the lobby with his slain body As the elevator doors opened disclosing his body, face down Mrs. Simpson screamed and said: “Oh, my God. Wait a min Ute. It looks like my husband.’ The victim of the macabre murder Wednesday night was Leonard Simpson, 63, a lawyer Police said he had been stabbed once near the heart with a wea pon similar to an ice pick. Just before the elevator doote opened, Mrs. Simpson and two men who also were waiting for it noticied a tall, gaunt Negro with a mustache, who came down the stairs, waved to them in a friendly way and left the building, located on 90th Street near Broadway. Police put out an alarm for nm. Other tenants said he ooked like a derelict. Mrs. Simpson said she en tered the apartment building a ew minutes after her husband and found two men waiting for the elevator. It was stopped at the fourth floor, where the Woman Denied Wages Claim Deloris V. Hurless of 406 E. 1st St., Uhrichsville was denied her claim for $3,450 in wages for work from Ross Scaffidi of 323 Sherman St., Dennison. Common Pleas Judge J. II. Lamneck who heard the case yesterday today filed an entry in which he declared that the woman had “failed to substantiate the allegations of her petition by a preponderance of the evidence.” Mrs. Hurless contended that Scaffidi owed her the money for her work as cook, waitress, bar maid and general caretaker at the Edgefield Tavern at 904 Trenton Ave., Uhrichsville. She charged that Scaffifi who operates the tavern had not paid her the regular $5.70 per day which they had agreed on. In her petition she claimed that Scaffidi owed her $1,778 for 1961, $1,470 for 1962 and $205 for 1963. Both parties had waived their Tight of trial by jury. Gnaden Clears Debt To County With a $3,000 check the Village of Gnadenhutten this past week paid in full its debt to the County Road and Bridge Department, County Engineer Charles Young announced. A total of $6,542 had been ow-ed on an account, open since 1951, Young said. The village within the past year has made 2 payments to dissolve the debt. Young revealed that his office carries a large number of delinquent accounts owed for a number of years from townships, villages and corporations. Some of the accounts, he states, can never be collected. His main interest, at present, is to collect delinquent money on accounts in which expenditures have been made during his term as county engineer. door. Finally the elevator started down, paused at the second floor and then reached the lobby. Police said the victim’s wallet, watch, tieclasp and pen were found on his body, along with about $1 in change. The wallet was empty of bills, although Simpson’s younger son, Victor, 23, told police his father usually carried about $50. Delinquent Tax List Is Readied For Publication County Auditor Donald R. Kinsey today released the names of persons and corporations owing delinquent taxes for the past year on real estate in Tuscarawas County. The certified list, which will be published in the classified advertising of county newspapers, contains the names of 215 property owners and 297 properties on which the delinquent taxes are owed. The delinquent payments range from 31 cents to $1,311. These delinquencies, Kinsey pointed out, do not include any other amounts which may be owed by the same real estate owners for previous years. Kinsey had announced on May 23 that this delinquency list must be published by law. Persons involved were advised at that time that they had until June IO to make payment for the taxes due, unless exceptions could be provided by law. Stolen Car Found An auto, stolen from near Newberry’s Store on W. High Ave. at 11:30 last night, was found a short time later by New Philadelphia at Everett’s Bakery, also on W. High Ave. The car is owned by Ralph Otto of 729 S. Broadway. Wabash Project To Tie Up Area Another Week New Philadelphia Service Director William Stevenson said this morning that Wabash Ave. from Kelly St. to the Pepsi-Cola plant will be blocked for at least another week because of difficulties encountered by sewer contractors. The sewer project — being paid for by Reeves Realty Co. —is being constructed by Ben Cookson Inc. of New Philadelphia. Stevenson said that portions of the highway, built on sandy soils, have been caving in and that a crane from Gundy Construction Co. now has been hired by the Cookson firm to remove the ground from the sewage-line ditch. The service director noted that one construction employe was almost covered by ground during a cave-in last week. Youth Trio Faces Theft Sentencing! County Juvenile Court Judge Ralph Finley, following an hour-long hearing this morning, ordered 3 youths to the Detention Home until he makes a decision on their cases. In other action, he suspended the driving licenses of 4 other juveniles. Two 15-year-olds, Thomas V. Huff of 237 2nd St. SW, New Philadelphia, and Phillip S. Pittman of RD 2, Dover, admitted they had stolen an auto in New Philadelphia Sunday night and abandoned it on Route 8, north of Dover, when «a state patrolman pulled up behind them. They were apprehended later by Dover police in nearby brush. The pair told the same story, that they had walked past the car and took it for joy riding after noticing keys in the ignition. Both have been held in the Detention Home since their apprehension. “You’re in serious trouble now,” Finley told Huff, “and you may have a lot more if you don’t mend your ways.” He told Pittman: “We don’t ike people going around stealing—Jiere or any place else.

(AP Wirephoto) WASHINGTON (AP)—Jubilant over their big victory in the | Supreme Court, advocates of the “one man, one vote” theory of government broadened their horizons today. Their next target: such local government organizations as city councils, county boards of supervisors and even such units as water districts. The Supreme Court, in a decision spelling great changes in the American governmental .structure, ruled Monday that both branches of state legislatures must be apportioned according to population. Aides in the office of Charles S. Rhyne, noted constitutional lawyer, said today the implications of Monday’s rulings are even broader than most people realize. Rhyne is former president of the American Bar Association and has been a kingpin in the drive on behalf of city residents and suburbanites to gain more voice in state legislatures, most of which are dominated by steadily diminishing numbers of rural residents. G. 'Disabled' Autos Will Be 'Watched' Dover Police Chief G. Groh announced today that letters are being sent to individuals in the city notifying them that they are in violation of a zoning ordiance which prohibits the parking or storing of a disabled automobile on their residence for more than one week, except if the vehicle is in a garage or other accessory building. Chief Groh stated that the disabled vehicles must be removed within IO days of the date of the letter. The ordinance provides a $50 fine. for the annual review session scheduled next Wednesday at Columbus. Deputy Director Earl Nelson said the meeting will consist of revising and updating the projects scheduled in April, 1963, under the Highway Department’s 5-year prospectus. He added that all projects under the 1966-68 schedule would be moved up to a 1964-68 agenda. Three of the projects are rn Tuscarawas County. He also pointed out that the updating of highway projects will not be influenced by the recently-passed $500 million highway bond issue, since the General Assembly must convene and authorize sale of bonds before the money can be earmarked. The all-important IS 77 leg from Green Gables Interchange south to Newcomerstown will be one of the    projects moved up. Sale date    of that    13.2-mile stretch will depend on the department’s speed in    obtaining plans and    acquiring    right-of- way. Nelson said preliminary plans already are underway. „ .    ,    .    ,    .    .    ,    Another recommendation for By Pete Groh    Your    family    m.ght    accept    you    advancl.ment wlU ,K. the 4dane Daily Reporter Staff Writer an<1 [end support, but former sectjon of Rou4e 35 from West friends, depending upon the' What do you do now?    reputation, may shy away.

Johnson here for speech reacted with enthusiasm to the chief executive’s brief appearance Wednesday. John L. Cruss, vice president of the Communications Workers of America, said flatly Johnson will roll up the biggest popular and electoral vote next fall since the late Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Crull, of Wichita, Kan., said after Johnson’s speech to the AFL-CIO union’s national convention that the President’s vote might exceed FDR’s regardless of whether Sen. Barry Godwa-ter is the Republican presidential candidate. Cruss included Ohio in his observations. Robert D. Bollard of Columbus, secretary-treasurer of the Ohio AFL-CIO, shared Crull’s enthusiasm to the extent that he felt state election results would be “the closest thing to another 1958.” That was the year Democrats rode the “right to work” issue to an Ohio non - presidential sweep in which U. S. Sen. Stephen M. Young unseated COP Sen. John W. Bricker. Democrats also took over most statehouse offices and oontrol of the legislature.

(AP) - A 20- year-old mother is worth $417,-000 to her husband during his lifetime, a University of Florida economies professor testified Wednesday in circuit court. Dr. Roy Lassiter Jr. said he based his estimate on a wife’s economic contribution to the home by combining the average salaries of a public school teacher and domestic servant. He testified in Wright E. Sar res of union addresses described by observers as an obvious (rid for labor support. He previously addressed union meetings in Atlantic City and New York. Although the President skirted political issues in his address here, he called for a ban on “cheap, mud - slinging personal politics” in off-the-cuff remarks to an enthusiastic Cleveland airport crowd that turned out to greet him. “If we can just restrain ourselves,” he said, “and not tear each other to pieces, America will not only be the land of the free but the land of the prosperous and the brave.” Citing a loss of more than two million jobs a year to automation, Johnson called for a national manpower policy through cooperation of labor, management and government. He said such a policy is needed to cope with changes in the! Weathervane 04 YESTERDAY High 77    Low    53 Elsewhere In U.S. High Low Pr. Albuquerque, clear 92 55 Chicago, cloudy ...

They pointed, for example, to a decision which the Ohio Supreme Court handed down even before the nation’s highest court acted.

Cleveland has 33 wards, and there had been complaints that people in some wards were shortchanged in the matter of representation. Rhyne’s aides also said California’s highest court had taken action looking toward the reapportionment of the Board of Supervisors in Monterey County, Calif. They foresaw much further litigation of this sort, wherever citizens can make a case that their vote is not worth as much as that of folks in some other part of the county or city. There was no exact information on how many states must reapportion their state legislatures as a result of Monday’s decrees. Estimates ranged from 24 to 40 or more.
