To add insult to injury, Hess later was turned over to Dennison police who wanted him for a disorderly conduct warrant. Hess said the robber hit him on the head several times before “dumping him.” He said he went to the Jasper Simpson home, near County Road 64, to call deputies. Hess told deputies he was standing outside White’s Tavern in Dennison when the man offered him a lift. jects will be entitled to enter the District Fair at Muskingum College on March 21.

Kenneth Kaelin, a bookkeeper there, stated that a front office secretary and customer were present when the panes “took flight,” but no one was injured. No estimate on the cost of the window' was available and, at last report, the intense winds were thwarting any possible chances of installing new windows. In Dover, line crews were tracking down 3 “hot” feeder lines in the general vicinity of 200 N. Tuscarawas Ave., 813 Boulevard and the Crater Ave. to E. 10th St. area at 9:15 this morning. Mayor C. LeMoynq Luthy reported that all power had been restored at 10:30 a.m. Service Director H. S. Ream said that no more large limbs or trees had been blown over by the wind at noon today. Meanwhile, Dover police were kept busy between 5:20 and 6:45 this morning pulling large limbs to the side of the streets in the 400 block of E. 3rd St. and the IOO block of Bell Ave. F. M. Zimmer, district manager of the Ohio Power Co., stated that “only small amounts of damage in scattered locations” w'ere reported to power lines in the Winfield and Bolivar areas last night. “No major damage nor serious outages have been reported thus far,” he added. At the General Telephone Co. of Ohio, Darrel H. Cope, district commercial manager, announced that everything was “just routine and the situation normal” except for a half dozen isolated service cuts. At 11:30 this morning Cope reported service interruptions at Wilmot, an outage on the Dundee exchange and numerous cases of wire trouble and break- See HIGH WINDS, Page 20 Missing Girl Found After Seville Trip Thirteen-year-old Maxine Teis-chinger of 153 Front St. SE, New Philadelphia, was returned home last night after being found at the home of relatives at Seville, O. The girl, an adopted daughter of Mrs. Hallie B. Teischinger, had disappeared Tuesday night after talking with a girl friend only a half a block away from her home. County Juvenile Officer Harry Fisher said he would talk to the girl today, possibly to determine how she got to Seville. The girl friend reportedly admitted to police yesterday that Maxine had planned to go to Seville. Police contacted officers there and she was taken into custoday. County Has Booming Trade In Oil, Gas Land Leases By Joe Woerdeman Daily Reporter Staff Writer Where does Tuscarawas County fit into the picture of the Ohio oil and gas boom which is already plaguing Morrow County, has forced Gov. James A. Rhodes to call for state emergency rules effective March IO and, according to some experts, will eventually turn the state into one of the top-producing oil •od gas center* in the U.S.? No county office or official is presently prepared to answer that question. Information, incomplete and spotty, must be gleaned from various offices and reports, county, state, and national. A check at the Tuscarawas County Recorder’s office shows that since April I, 1963, more than 200 leases have involved over 20,000 acres in the county in the oil and gas business. The greatest number of such leases were taken in Warren (3?), Wayne (36), York (27), Goshen (24), Franklin, Perry and Union townships. Nineteen out of the 22 townships in the county had at least one oil and gas lease during that period. Wednesday. Recorder Ted Underwood revealed that 61 oil and gas leases were filed just in the past month, as compared with 9 in February, 1963, and 14 in February. 1962. This, of course, does not show just how much oil or gas is being produced by wells in the See BOOMING, Page 2 Winds Trail Record Rain By THE ASSOC IATED PRESS High winds—reported gusting more than IOO rn.p.h.—in one spot —trailed a record rainfall in sections of Ohio today. The U. S. Weather Bureau at Port Columbus said the extremely variable southwesterly winds would continue to blow in gusts of between 25 and 50 m.p.h. throughout the day. Local police and Ohio Highway Patrol switch boards were swamped with trouble calls this morning. Trees and utility poles were down, denting autos, blocking streets and knocking down power and telephone lines. Billboards were damaged by the wind and there were several reports of showcase windows being blown in. Strongest wind reports came from north western counties. Gusts up to 106 m.p.h. were reported in Findlay, where a number of large signs were blown down and a house trailer was overturned. Two schools, Vanlue in Hancock County and Wharton in Wyandot County, were closed today because power lines were down. In Cleveland, gusts up to 68 m.p.h. blew debris off a 40 story skyscraper under construction. The high winds followed thunderstorms, ending early today, which deposited 3.27 inches of rain in the Columbus area for a new 24-hour March record. More than 24 inches of rain in j Athens County caused the I Hocking river to rise 12 feet in I 24 hours. But the Weather Bureau in Huntington, W. Va., said the river would crest at 16 feet, about one foot below flood stage. By Mrs. Sally Duffy Daily Reporter Correspondent NEWCOMERSTOWN — Initial action was taken at a special Board of Education meeting last night to answer Ohio Department of Education criticisms contained in a series of inspection reports on high schools. On recommendation of the Booster Club here, the board will launch a study for a new high school building to replace the 40-year-old present structure, which w'as termed “inadequate as a high school center” in the state report. Almost as important, the board agreed to invite Stone Creek-Jefferson and Port Wash-ington-Salem school officials to join in a study of a possible consolidation for the 3 high schools. The board said it had been in contact with M. Bryon Morton, | assistant to Dr. E. E. Holt, su- I perintendent of Ohio public in- ' struction, and asked if it could have approval for a senior high. Morton reportedly told the board “it could be approved immediately.” For Stone Creek, the invitation to study a consolidation comes at a most opportune time. Supt. See NC’TOWN, Page 20 Lorenz To Attend Ohio School Board Meeting Monday Ed Lorenz, president of the Stone Creek-Jefferson Board of Education, will attend the State Board of Education’s meeting in Columbus Monday to discuss a recent state report that recommended the closing of the high school. Lorenz had planned to ask for at least a year’s time to begin consolidation plans, but that was before yesterday’s announcement that the school charter would not be lifted until June 30, 1965, The problem will be aired by district residents at a Friday night meeting of the PTA in the school. Is Certainty By GAVIN SCOTT CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP)—James R. Hoffa, president of i the nation’s largest labor union, stared in grim disbelief Wednesday when he heard himself declared guilty of trying to rig a federal court jury. It was his first conviction in four trials. “We will appeal,” Hoffa told newsmen.  -I    His    lawyers    said    motions    for Dover Youth Found Guilty In Assault Trial Ronald R. Staider, 19, of 215 Hemlock St., Dover, was found guilty by Common Pleas Judge Raymond Rice today of assault and battery filed under Dover City ordinances. Staider entered a not guilty plea today and waived his right to a jury hearing. The charge originally was heard by Dover Mayor C. LeMoyne Luthy, but Staider demanded a jury hearing and the case was transferred to the higher court. Dover City Solicitor Mario Corsi called as his first witness, Edward Chrusciel of 2104 N. Wooster Ave., Dover, whose father filed the complaint. Chrusciel, 18, claimed he received a compound fracture of the jaw early Sunday morning, Jan. 12, when, without provocation, Staider attacked him with his fists, after he left Dinolfo’s Restaurant on Broad St. Chrusciel quoted Staider as saying: “He had had enough of me for the last 24 years.” Chrusciel admitted there had been trouble some 2 years before over dating a mutual girl friend. At that time, Staider allegedly told him to “keep his hands off.” Police Chief Garrison Groh told the court that in question-See YOUTH. Page 2 a new trial would be filed with U.S. Dist. Judge Frank Wilson within five days. The conviction could mean IO j'ears in prison and a $10,000 fine for Hoffa, head of the Teamsters Union. Tile judge has set no date for passing sentence. The verdict brought congratulations to the prosecutors from Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy —long accused by Hoffa of waging a vendetta against him. Kennedy, once called a “punk kid” by Hoffa, just smiled when asked for his reaction to the verdict. Pressed by Washington newsmen for a statement, he See HOFFA, Page 13 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Lt. Col. John H. Glenn Jr., still in Grant Hospital recovering from a head injury, announced a new campaign schedule today for the first few days of April. First dates are Wednesday, April I, in Cleveland and Akron. Glenn, a candidate for the Democratic U. S. senatorial nomination. was forced to postpone start of his campaign for a month because of the injury he received in a bathroom fall. He is recovering, but the injury delayed his official retirement from the Marine Corps, scheduled for last Sunday, until April I. Marine regulations prohibit political activity during ac. tive service. Meanwhile, Glenn disclosed he is pondering whether to ask the secretary of the Navy to waive regulations so that, if his condition permits', he can start campaigning earlier. The Glenn for Senator Committee issued the schedule today “of major policy speeches and campaign appearances” for Glenn in the first four days of April. These are: Wednesday, April I, morning, campaigning in Cleveland; 6:30 p.m. kickoff dinner at Sheraton Mayflower Hotel iii Akron, major See GLENN, Page 13 Rhodes' Industrial Loan Plan Hinges On Court Ruling By Richard Zimmerman Reporter Columbus Bureau COLUMBUS — The industrial loaning plan produced by the Rhodes* administration is far from being a reality and, may in fact, literally be dead at this moment. The plan is now being weighed by the Ohio Supreme Court and, since it promised to hurry a decision along, it is quite possible a vote already has been taken and the formal decision is now being written. But even if the court approves the plan there are other hurdles to overcome before the loans are put into operation by the Ohio Development Financing Commission. The plan to make loans to both Road Work For Inn Nears Finish DAY BRIGHTENER The popularity of the automatic dishwasher is due to the fact that most husbands would rather buy than be one. Construction work on the main access road to the site of the Atwood lake Resort Inn will be completed sometime next week, Earl W. Nelson, deputy director of State Highway Division ll, announced yesterday. Pictured are 2 of the 7 pieces of earthmoving and grading equipment used by Highway Department employes to grade and drain 1.5 miles of new road from Carroll County Road 64 up hill to the Inn location. The work, which began early in February, is being done by special authorization of Gov. James A. Rhodes and State Highway Director P. E. Masheter on request of authorities of the Muskingum Conservancy District who are erecting the $2 million project located off Road 64 between State Routes 39 and 212. Payment of costs will be made from highway department funds set up for maintenance of park roads. Nelson said the state will do additional work at the project site in grading the parking lot area at the Inn and helping with construction of 2 other roads in the area where chalet-type cabins will be located. The main access road, which will have a gravel base for the time being, will be used as a "haul” road for equipment and materials when work on the Inn starts this spring. General Maintenance Supt. Walton Skaggs supervised the road building. Plans were furnished by the MCD Engineering Department. In the background of the above picture are Carroll County Road 64, the Atwood Yacht Club (to the right) and the lake itself. private industry and community development corporations wound up in the court as a result of a “friendly” suit filed by Attorney General William Saxbe. This is common practice when the Legislature passes anything that is constitutionally questionable, particularly if it involves selling bonds. Those who buy the bonds want to make sure the investment is safe. Bul the suit Is not quite sn “friendly” as it may seem. Larry Snyder, Saxbe’s chief counsel, is not just “doing his job” in arguing that the loaning program Is unconstitutional. He told The Daily Reporter he sincerely and honestly believes the plan Is in opposition to at least 2 sections of the Ohio Constitution. His opinion is shared by a large segment of the legal community. What the 7 judges of the high court think, however, is what counts. This will be a closely guarded secret probably until late this month. The Ohio Constitution forbids the lending of the state’s credit to private corporations or persons and loaning its credit for other than public purposes. Snyder argues that even though the law set up the loaning commission as a separate body, free of any of the usual legal restriction that protects a wholly state-operated body, it is See LOANS.
