Drivers Get Vandalism Warning This Is How St. John's Church Area Will Look With Addition Leads Lacking In Search For Missing CR Trio By MICHAEL SMITH found alive, PHILADELPHIA, Miss. (AP) —Federal and state officers renewed their intensive search at daybreak today for three missing civil rights workers and planned dragging operations in several bodies of waters in this east-central Mississippi area. As fear mounted that the three workers would not be Postmaster Appointments Not On Agenda Contrary to rumors, no postmaster appointments will be made in Tuscarawas County on the occasion of Postmaster Gen eral John Grounoski’s visit tomorrow. Examinations for vacancies in Stone Creek and Bolivar have not as yet been held, New Philadelphia Postmaster Matthew Gibson said. His office is responsible for the administration of such examinations and as yet no date has been set for them. Mrs. Arline McMillin is acting postmistress at Stone Creek and Mrs. Loretta King is the clerk in charge of the Bolivar Postoffice following the recent death of Ralph Kienzle. It was learned today that the County Democratic Committee had submitted the name of Bessie Peoples for the acting postmistress position in Bolivar. However, Gibson said he understood her age disqualified her in view of possible permanent appointment. Miss Peoples is Democratic precinct commit-teewroman in Bolivar and as such is a member of the Democratic Central Committee. Gibson explained that with a Democratic president in office the local Democratic Committee normally nominates postmasters. However, as Civil Service workers, they must qualify for the position through examination. highway patrol spokesman said sea re hers would check all buildings, out buildings and recent excavations. “There is still no indication, no definite leads for us to go on,” said Art Richardson, public' information officer for the Mississippi Highway Patrol. Grady Gilmore, public relations director for the patrol, said earlier: “It is hard to believe that three people could just be swallowed up without somebody hearing or seeing them.” The trio was last seen Sunday night. The charred hulk of the station wagon they used was found by E'BI agents in a swampy See CR TRIO, Page 6. Join In Welcome Mayor Robert Croniser of Uhrichsville today urged Twin City residents and others to be on hand to welcome Postmaster General Grounoski when he arrives Friday at the airport. “The enthusiasm with which we receive Mr. Grounoski and congressmen could have a far-reaching affect on our community’s future,” he said. St. John's Church Okays $225,000 Building Project Three Budgets Not Submitted County Commissioners still are waiting for 3 department budgets to be proposed for 1965 By law the budget proposals were to be submitted by June I to the commissioners as the proper county taxing authority. However, County Auditor Donald Kinsey had advised them that the budget could be deferred until June 20. The commissioners must receive the 3 remaining budgets before they can prepare the overall county budget for 1965. They are then bound by Ohio law to advertise a public hearing on the budget, IO days prior to the hearing itself. The date for the hearing can be no later than July 15. Here Saturday The Ohio Department of Health’s mobile X-ray unit will be in front of the Culligan Soft Water Service office on W. 3rd St. Saturday between the hours of 9 a.m. and noon and I and 4 p.m. Examinations are free. The unit is in New Philadelphia through Friday at the Municipal Building. Erection of a $225,000 church school addition on the north side of St. John’s United Church of Christ on N. Wooster Ave. was approved at a special congregational meeting last night. The former Baker and Dear-dorff properties, which are owned by the church, will be utilized for the 2-story, basementless structure. The 95 voting members attending the meeting also authorized a fund-raising campaign in October under the direction of Burrill Inc. of Kansas City, Mo. Construction is scheduled to begin next spring. Under study for 3 years, the proposed building will contain assembly and classrooms for 5 church school departments with a capacity of 460 pupils. It also will contain studies for the pastor and assistant, a lounge area, library and general office. Bruce Sackets president of the church and chairman for last night’s meeting, pointed out that the need for additional facilities for the 1,600-member congregation first became evident IO years ago. The former parsonage is used for general office work and a Bible School class while the Baker home, formerly occupied by the Early Funeral Home, also has been used for classes. At last night’s session, which See ST. JOHN’S, Page 6. A closer surveillance of night drivers in Dover will be made by police in wake of extreme vandalism last night, before and after midnight, Mayor C. Le-Moyne Luthy announced. E’ive acts of vandalism were reported, several occurring in the same neighborhood and within minutes of each other. In all but one case residents reported a car “roared away after the noise.” “We’re determined to stop this wanton destruction of property,” Mayor Luthy said. “There’ll be no leniency and those who are committing the vandalism should remember that any destruction amounting to $100 or more is considered a felony and violators are subject to imprisonment.” Mrs. Betty Everett of 130 W. 6th St. reported at 10:40 that a metal lawn chair was thrown through a picture window'. At 12:17 a m.

HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON (AP) — President Johnson has passed the word to aides that along with the assignment of his new top command team to South Viet Nam, he wants the whole U.S. mission in Saigon beefed up as much as possible. In taking a new look at the Southeast Asian crisis because of the resignation of Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge, Johnson is said to have determined that the time has come for the Unit cd States to make a major ef fort, as some officials phrase it “to turn the war around.” Some top authorities believe the firm leadership of south Vietnamese president, Maj. Gen Nguyen Khanh, is beginning to show results, that improver U.S. techniques in training South Vietnamese forces is also showing results and that the ill effects in disorder and damaged Oil Firm Obtains Rest Of Land For New Philo Station E’inal steps for clearing the site of the new Ashland Oil service station at El.

President Johnson, it is understood, had expected that Lodge, the kingpin of the U.S. organization and effort in South Viet Nam, would remain on the job until August. But Lodge decided for what he has called purely personal reasons that he had to leave almost at once. He said he wanted to help Pennsylvania Gov. William W. Scranton in his effort to win the COP presidential nomination. Johnson announced Tuesday the acceptance of the resignation which Lodge submitted last Fri-day. At the same lime, and according to a principle that had previously been adopted that there should be no gap between Lodge and his successor, Johnson announced an unprecedented combination of talents and experience would be sent into the U S. Embassy at Saigon— with Gen. Maxwell IX Taylor, leaving the chairmanship of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to become ambassador, and Deputy Undersecretary of State U.

Joseph Streb, counsel for Filer, also insisted: “This was a true accident. It could have happened to anyone.” He suggested that had Peacock been a younger person his injuries might not have been so serious. Larnneck also agreed that Peacock, as an elderly man, may not have been so alert. “I don’t believe that (penitentiary sentence) would do you any good,” the judge told Eiler.
