Schools To Get Full Subsidies TB Skin Tests Pending Vote Action on the proposed tuberculin skin testing program will be deferred at least until after the November election when the additional 2-tenths mill levy again comes up for a vote, according to Tuscarawas County Health Department officials, who I fenow House members by mail met yesterday with Fern Wood j Wednesday. COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio House Speaker Roger Cloud and Senate Majority Leader C. Stanley Mechem have estimated it will cost an extra $5 million in state subsidies to meet the needs of Ohio schools this year. But the two legislative leaders said in a news conference Thursday that school districts will get their state subsidy money in full and on time, reiterating what Cloud told his of the Ohio Department of Health and County Commissioners. Placing the levy, which was defeated last November, on the ballot was voted at the March 3 board meeting. Citing the recent 5 per cent budget cut and defeat of the levy, health officials stated that it could not assume the responsibility for the new testing program, in cooperation with the County TB & Health Assn., for all children in Grades I, 3. 5, 7 and ll in all county schools. lf the levy passes, the program 1 auditor could be expanded to also cover industry and the entire community, according to Vivian Stewart, deputy health commissioner. "The program would involve a considerable number of school children and time, and we don t have the funds at this time to handle it,” she stated. "The testing would require employing an additional nurse and a part-time office clerk, and we are short one nurse now." Health department officials believe that it will cost around $5,-000 to staff the testing center, noting that the levy would provide sufficient funds. The payments will be made, they said, in spite of a recent Controlling Board resolution warning districts to live within legislative appropriations. They pointed out that the districts commit themselves for a full calendar year and rely on the state paying up. The State School Board earlier had defied the Controlling Board’s warning and threatened to take the state’s financial obligations under the school foundation law directly to the state Station Breakin Try Is Reported DENNISON—Police investigat-ed an attempted breakin at Johnny’s Gull Service at 5th and Center St. at 2:15 this moin-ing. On investigation, police found a window had been broken, but entrance had not been gained. Raymond Ross of RD I, Dennison, reported the incident to Patrolman Herman Wright, w'ho investigated. It was the 7th try in the last few months to enter the station. On Jan. I, John Reccutti reported $25 was stolen. County Chairmen Named For Young Joe Cappel of 208 Prospect St., Dover, and Mrs. Anna J. Ferrell of 419 2nd St.. New Philadelphia, will serve as co-chairmen of Tuscarawas County Democrats for U.S. Sen. Stephen Young, it was announced today. Vice chairman for the county campaign activities will be Charles H. Howery of 418 Broad St., Dover, long an active Democrat. Cappell, a former county commissioner. has been active in county Democratic circles for 14 years. Mrs. Ferrell is the wife of County Chainman Atty. Kenneth Ferrell. ON THE INSIDE Cloud and Mechem said in their joint statement that subsidy money will be paid ‘‘because it was agreed that the commitment to the local school districts, however made, must be kept." Finance Director Richard L. Krabach has predicted the school subsidy fund will be $8.5 million in the red by the end of the fiscal biennium (June 30, 1984) if local districts continue their present rate of spending. The state school subsidy is set by formula in state law and it is on this law that the State School Board based its defiance of the Controlling Board. Mechem asserted that money to meet the schools’ needs "will be there and it will be released,” pointing out that tax collections are up this year. Sudden 'Finding' Of School Funds Regarded As Political By Richard Zimmerman Reporter Columbus Bureau COLUMBUS - In spite of all the talk of "contractual obligation" and "we just found that the money is available," the decision to make a deficiency appropriation to Ohio’s public schools was purely political. It was simply a case of a rather substantial group of House Republicans telling their legislative leaders and the governor that there would be real trouble in November if the schools continued their revolt. The decision was so political in fact that 90 minutes after legislative leaders announced their move, the chairman of the group which had said the money could not be found did not know the legislators had suddenly "found" the funds. Otto Stock, chairman of the state’s Controlling Board and who represents Finance Director Krabach, had been in on the terse statement telling schools that they "must" keep within their budget. But he did not know about the See POLITICAL, Page 9 Action Claims Judge Finley Is 'Prejudiced' An affidavit of bias and prejudice was filed against Judge Ralph Finley in Probate Court yesterday by Atty. Robert J. Sw'an of Canton, counsel for Dennis O. Doney, 20, of Strasburg. Doney was scheduled for jury trial in Judge Finley’s court Tuesday on a charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. How’ever the jurors have been notified not to report. The affidavit maintains Judge Finley should be disqualified from hearing the case because he has a special interest in it. A hearing on the affidavit will be held by Chief Justice Kingsley A. Taft of the Ohio Supreme Court. Doney was arraigned last Dec. IO on the charge of contributing to the delinquency of a 15-year-old girl. He entered an innocent plea. Judge Finley filed the charge against Doney when he and the girl, accompanied by parents, applied for a marriage license because she was expectant. With the girl being under 16, Judge Finley’s consent was necessary. "Judge Finley already has ex-See FINLEY, Page 2 NEW ATTORNEY.

He replaced Melvin Belli, who was fired. Foreman is president of the National Association of Defense Attorneys and probably the best-known criminal lawyer in Texas. A Dallas jury sentenced Ruby to death Saturday for slaying Lee Oswald, the accused assassin of the late President John F. Kennedy, last Nov. 22. SAN FRANCISCO (AP)-At-torney Melvin M. Belli, fired as Jack Ruby’s counsel and denounced by the American Bar Association, says he is not bitter at anybody. The fiery lawyer, fresh from Thursday night’s flight to San Francisco from Mexico City via Tia Juana and San Diego, said he was "steamed up and raring to go" with a news conference scheduled for today. Belli told newsmen during his stopover at San Diego, "We knew we couldn't win, that the jury would jam a verdict of guilty down our throats, and Ruby and his family were apprised of this through the trial.’* Ruby received the death penalty Saturday in Dallas for murdering Lee Harvey Oswald, the accused assassin of President John PA Kennedy. On Wednesday night, Ruby’s sister, Eva Grant, sent a letter to Belli’# San Francisco office saying his services were no longer wanted. She said the family was "dissatisfied with See BELLI, Page 2 'Molly' Production Is Near 'Sellout' There are 25 seats available for tonight’s Little Theatre pres-entation of "The Unsinkable Molly Brown" and 15 remaining for Saturday’s closing performance.

Not so with David Voshall, of 117 S. Uhrich St., Uhrichsville. This 13-year-old boy decided to climb a tree last night, probably one of the surest signs of spring. In his enthusiasm, he became wedged in the tree. Firemen were called to the scene, but Dr. James Peck had rescued the youngster by then.

LEAVES WHITE HOUSE JOB Salinger Silent On Political Move SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Pierre Salinger flew into his home town today after resigning as President Johnson’s press secretary, He apparently will run for the U.S. Senate. Salinger would not say what his plans are, but said he would hold a news conference later today to announce whether he will seek the Senate seat of ailing California Democrat Clair Engle. Salinger’s candidacy could further complicate the controversial Senate race which has already split the party. But, the big question was whether he’s eligible to enter the June 2 California primary.

She arrived at 9:10 a m. Eastern Standard Time. Spring is here, the season of splendors, the time of rebirth, the end of winter. What did she see as she crossed the Atlantic Coast, spanned the Great Plains, the Pacific? A nation at peace, but not beyond danger. A prosperous nation, tingling with hope and energy, but with pockets of poverty. A nation still carrying the weight of its tragedy, but carrying, as well, the pride of a people who quietly closed ranks after the moment of shock. All over America, birds were bringing the message. In California, the swallows returned to mission San Juan Capistrano Thursday, right on schedule — always on St. Joseph’s Day. In Spring Valley, 111., Mayor Bill Savitch said, "We’ve had See LADY SPRING, Page 9 ... And Some Havoc, Too! Rusk Denies He's Leaving WASHINGTON (AP) — Dean Rusk seems likely to stay on as secretary of state through the November elections, but what will happen after that is uncertain. Sources close to Rusk said he has given no thought to resigning now. And they pointed out that it is up to the voters in November to name the next president, and it will then be up to the chief executive —■ whether President Johnson or someone else—to select his Cabinet. Pending these decisions, they said, Rusk can hardly say that he will be staying on for another four years. Rusk, in Salt Lake City for a speech, told rewsmen:    "The day after President Kennedy died, President Johnson asked me to stay on. I am at his disposal. I have no plans to resign at all. The President and I haven’t discussed the matter.’* In Washington a State Department spokesman promptly denied that Rusk plans to resign. Even if he plans to, a denial would be expected at the State Department because a secretary of state’s influence with foreign leaders would tumble fast if they thought he was on his way out. Salinger apparently was armed with legal advice that he could seek the nomination. Engle underwent brain surgery last August, but he has filed for re-election in the face of assertions by state Democratic leaders that he’s too ill to campaign. The U.S. Constitution requires only that a senator be 30 years of age and an inhabitant of the state. Some elation experts seemed to think that Salinger, 38, former San Francisco newspaper reporter, could qualify if he’s primed to get his nomination papers in on time. The deadline is 5 p.m. today. By THE ASSOC IATED PRESS Three storms pounded different sections of the nation with destructive winds, snow and rainstorms as spring came today after renegade tornadoes ended the winter season with a king-sized punch at Texas. Tornadoes and strong winds whipped along the Texas coast Thursday, causing an estimated $500,000 damage in Baytown and injuring at least 12 persons in Nederland. A disturbance in eastern Kansas cast a winter scene over most of the central and northern Plains anti in the Upper Mississippi Valley. Blizzard conditions occurred from eastern Colorado and western Kansas through Minnesota and the eastern Dakotas.
