RECOVERY IS EXPECTED U.S. Ambassador Stabbed In Tokyo By JOHN RODERICK TOKYO (AP) — A mentally deranged Japanese youth scaled a six-foot wall at the U.S. Embassy today and plunged a knife into the thigh of U.S. Ambassador Edwin 0. Reischauer as the diplomat was coming out a door. Reischauer, 53. underwent surgery and doctors said that barring complications the 3V4-inch deep wound inflicted by a six-inch blade should be healed in two weeks. An embassy attache said the ambassador is “in good shape. John Demands Trial By Jury George G. John. 38. of RD 2, Newcomerstown, yesterday demanded a jury to hear his case of assault and battery. Northern District County Judge Charles R. Eckert said today. John was arraigned Friday afternoon in the court and Judge Eckert had set his hearing for Thursday. The charge was filed by Stone Creek-Jefferson School bus driver Ivan Haw'k, 42. of RD I, Stone Creek, who claims that John beat him Sept. ll, fracturing his rihs and breaking his nose, Hawk had refused to drive the school bus on a county road past John’s house, claming he was acting on the instruction of the Stone Creek-Jefferson Local school board, requiring John’s daughter to walk 2-tenths of a mile. The beating reportedly was administered while Hawk’s bus was in motion and while he was attemtpting to control it. John’s attorney, James Thomas of New Philadelphia, submitted the demand for a jury-trail. | He will be all right.” The ambassador himself dic-I tated a statement from his bed deploring “the sad fact that there are unfortunate, unbalanced persons in all the world.” The assailant, Norikazu Shio-tani, 19, was captured immediately after the attack by quick-thinking John Ferchak, 39. an official in the embassy’s commercial section. He pushed Shi-otani to the floor and forced the knife from his hand. Police said Shiotani was mentally deranged and had no political motive of attacking the popular, Japanese-speaking diplomat. who was appointed by President Kennedy in 1961. Japan expressed its dismay over the incident. Premier Ha-yato Ikeda cabled regrets to President Johnson. Shiotani is myopic—or near sighted. He was described as a crusader on behalf of nearsighted women. Police said he tried to set fire to a building at the U.S. Embassy earlier this year in order to call attention to his crusade. He was released at the time for lack of evidence, but admitted the arson attempt WASHINGTON (AP) — President Johnson urged the building trades unions today to help vanquish unemployment, poverty and ‘their ancient ally—discrimination.” “You are builders—and I ask your help in building the kind of America we can build,” Johnson said. The President addressed the Building and Construction Trades Department of the AFJLr CIO. It was his second address in two days to a major labor organization, and he repeated some of the themes sounded when he spoke Monday to the United Auto Workers Convention in Atlantic City, N.J. Johnson said the 1946 commitment to full employment for every American needing a job, by act of Congress, still stands but it is unfulfilled. He said he will not be satisfied until it is. Not only did Johnson give another push to his war on poverty, but he also pounded away again for medical care for the elderly through the Social Security system, a national food stamp plan, extension of the minimum wage law to millions now uncovered, and the strengthening of unemployment insurance. Johnson said the new', $11.5-billion tax cut law should create, directly and indirectly, two to three million jobs. The new housing bill pending in Congress, he said, is pointed toward raising the rate of new home construction from 1.6 mil- I lion in 1963 to two million by 1970. The goal of full employment which Congress declared in a 1946 law means, the President said, providing enough new jobs to take care of the excessively high number of unemployed, plus enough to replace jobs lost to machines, plus enough for the 1.5 million people joining the labor force each year. He said many of these new jobs must be and will be in construction. Setting the scene for Johnson, Secretary of Labor W. Willard Wirtz told the building trades delegates Monday that the administration’s economic oppor- See BUILDING, Page 2 Vandals Destroy Mineral City Sign John E.

DAY BRIGHTENER A girl doesn’t need to be pretty to win a man’s love—she can be rich. For several weeks, the battle cry was heard, mainly because of a few dear old ladies. They fairly frothed because no flag was being flown from the pole at the Courthouse. But, creatures that they are, they didn’t think to call the persons responsible — the county commissioners. Not that it would have done any good, of course. For those men of office had already been asked what to do about the flag by the Courthouse maintenance man, who (alas and alack!) was 25 years too old, or he would have shinnied up that pole and silenced the ladies in their wrath. But as is the fate among men —sit long enough and someone else will do the job for you. So, the commissioners found. Somehow Treasurer Victor Martinelli became the target of the complaints. Even a young lass called from a nearby bank to ask him why, why the flag was not flying. The simple answer was—the commissioners said so a week before—the pulley at the top of the pole was stuck, and they, the commissioners knew of no way to “unstick” it. But, the treasurer thought he knew a way—pick up the phone and call Ohio Pow'er Co. Manager Fred Zimmer assured Mar- New Philadelphia Council plodded through a slow 35-minute session last night, with 3 members and the solicitor absent. After Lloyd Dinger had opened the meeting 5 minutes late, President William Hinig arrived to push through the evening’s business.

(AP)— A sniper’s bullet killed a Negro woman and three men were wounded by gunfire Monday night, bringing tragedy into continued racial violence in and around Jacksonville. A gun fired from a passing car brought death to Johnnie Mae Chappell, 36, mother of several children. She was shot as she walked along U.S. I, northwest of the city limits. Two white men and a Negro man were shot and wounded, none seriously. The shootings and at least IO fire bombings came while a pa- i JACKSONVILLE, Fla.

But the commissioners w'ould not be put off that easily. They wanted a special spindle put atop the pole so that 2 flags, national and state, could be flown from separate pullies. And what could one do about that, they said? Again, Martinelli had to give the simple answer. Pick up the See FLAG, Page 2 Stephenson, as counsel for Clarence A. Farbizo of 412 Chauncey Ave. NW, has presented a petition at the previous Council meeting to have a portion of the alley vacated between Anoia and Chauncey Aves. Ted Ricker informed Council that the contact committee was backing the ordinance with the recommendation that power lines j as possible to the present location. He said a canvass of residents in the area showed a “SOSO feeling” about vacating the alley, but most were ready to agree to it, if it were for the community’s good. Iii a surprise move, Councilman Paul Young rose to ask that the ordinance establishing Dawson Lane NW as a one-way street from 4th to 3rd Sts. be amended. The ordinance was ready for its third reading when Young, seconded by Dinger, moved that the flow of traffic be set from 3rd to 4th Sis. mm ON THE INSIDE HMHMi tm 48 .02 34    .. 42 1.00 71    .. 37    .. 37    ..

Healthy Lives Need Security Of Cod Weather, Plane Troubles Delay Women Fliers HAMILTON, Bermuda (AP) —The little lady with world wide plans watched and waited for a break in Atlantic Ocean weather today. Jerrie Mock was itching to fly to the Azores Islands, but weather men did not give her much hope before Wednesday. That 2,200-mile cross • ocean flight is to be the second leg of the Ohio housewife aviatrix’ planned flight around the world. She is hoping to set distance and time records for her type of single-engine propeller-driven plane while doing it—solo. The 38 - year - old mother of three from the Columbus, Ohio, suburb of Bexley arrived in Bermuda Thursday. Radio trouble held up her takeoff, then the weather. quickly remonstrated, stating he thought the residents on Dawson Lane had agreed on the 4th to 3rd St. direction. Hinig said he thought they wanted it to flow the other way. And Mayor Joe Pritz stood up to say that, on the night the residents submitted their petition, they definitely had made no answer when he pointedly asked them if they would object to the traffic going from 4th to 3rd Sts. “I don’t think we should pen-j alize the majority of the people of the city for the benefit of a I few,” Pritz declared. He said a traffic survey proved that Dawson Lane did not even rate as a one-way street and that rerouting traffic from 4th to 3rd St. would empty it onto a main traffic artery. Hicks then got Council to table the ordinance for reconsideration at the April 13 meeting, upon which, 4 residents from Dawson Lane left the meeting, murmuring among themselves.

MOORE \U7hen Jesus called his followers together on Mount Olivet to give them his last command, he spelled out for them what he believed should be the way of life for Christians. He said: “Go ye unto all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature. Live the truth of God in the world.” In living the life which Jesus prescribed, Christians have found solutions to all problems common to man. These problems confronting man may pertain to personal life and welfare, to political and economic affairs or to religious problems. Christianity holds in its keeping the future of our nation and of the world. The resources and strength of the Christian are not based on political policies or on economic programs but on the truth He teaches and lives, life He communicates and character he displays. the the AU these resources, Christians believe, are products of the truth and the spiritual power of God, Who is ever present in the affairs of men, working for good with them that love Him.
