Dover Pupils Are Suspended; Phila Play Off “Spring fever,” the well-worn excuse for student misbehavior, is back again. To date in Dover and New Philadelphia at least 5 students have been suspended and a high school play has been canceled in wake of damage estimated at $100. Pending parent conferences with school officials next week, 5 Dover students have been suspended, 2 for throwing eggs at a car and 3 for being involved in a prom incident. In New Philadelphia Al Po-cock, advisor for the Speech Activities Club at the high school, today announced can-1 cenation of the school play, “The Mouse That Roared,” scheduled for May 8-9. While Pocock w'as attending a school board meeting Tuesday night, a few' members of the production staff got out of hancl with some paint. Disciplinary action is pending. Teachers and school officials have one consolation — less than 30 school days before summer vacation begins. Bricker Quits Chairmanship Of Phila Dents AI Bricker, chairman of the City Democratic Committee in New Philadelphia, today announced he would resign in the interest of party harmony. His announcement came after an informal meeting with IO other precinct committeemen last night in the Ohio Power kitchen. The meeting followed issuance by Bricker last week of a campaign letter in behalf of the candidacy of Joseph W. Finzel, Democratic candidate for sheriff. It cited the religious affiliations of the 4 candidates. No official business could be transacted at last night’s session because 15 committeemen were absent. Those present pointed out that “no primary candidate has an endorsement from this or any other Democratic committee.” Bricker reiterated a previous statement in w'hich he pointed out that the Frenzel letter was not authorized by the comir '• tee but that he, as an individual, sent it to Protestant clergymen. He signed it as chairman of the city committee. In announcing his resignation Bricker said he had been contemplating it for some time. “I really don’t have 4ime for it,” he said. He also recommended that Democrats in Precinct 3-F vote for Irwin Ernst for committeeman. “He will be a good party worker,” he added. He also expressed appreciation for party cooperation in last November’s successful municipal campaign which saw Joe Pritz elected mayor.

By ROGER LANE NEW YORK (AP)—The nation’s $18-bilIion steel industry, biting its nails at this time in 1962 and 1963, is brimming with optimism. Production is at a gallop. Major producers report first-quarter profits up in many cases 50 to 75 per cent from a year ago. There is no sign of a serious labor dispute. Edmund F. Martin, hoard chairman of the second-ranking firm, Bethlehem Steel Corp., told newsmen 1964 might prove a record year for steel companies assuming there is no strike in the auto industry. The main threat to tranquility, a federal indictment charging eight big steelmakers with price fixing in 1955-61, has been crowded pretty much into the background for the time being.

VACCARO WASHINGTON (AP) — A Republican council has recommended that the Johnson administration tell the world it is prepared “as a last resort to use military force to remove international communism from Cuba.    f Democrats immediately fired back, describing the stinging COP criticism of the administration’s Cuban policy as “a crude political document.” And the Democrats remembered to remind their GOP critics that Fidel Castro took over as prime minister of Cuba while a Republican, Dwight I). Eisenhower, was president. The fuss was stirred up Thursday when the Republican Critical Issues Council peppered the Democratic leadership with a series of demands for action against Castro. The 24-member council of prominent Republicans, headed by Dr. Milton S. Eisenhower, younger brother of the former president, urged an immediate end to U.S. curbs on anti-Castro raisers and establishment in Latin America of a Cuban government in exile. It said the latter w'ould rally 300,000 Cuban refugees “to work openly for the liberation of Cuba.” Sen. J. VV. Fulbright, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee who has called on the administration to reappraise its Cuban policy, said that if the Repiblican Annexation Seen As Solution For All In Twin City District Vocational Planners Endorse Rezoning 7 Lots Highschool Session Set A meeting has been scheduled Monday at 8 p.m. (Slow Time) in Dover High library between representatives of the Ohio Division of Vocational Education, headed by Byrl R Shoemaker, director, and the steering committee for the proposed area vocational high school.

Bower, Dover chiropractor, who desires to construct a $40,000 medical building on Union Ave. Prime objectors to the proposed rezoning are fearful that R-4 status could lead to increased commercialization of Union Ave. and the adjoining area which, they say, has caused the value of their land to decrease as the tax valuation rose. Edward Finley also pointed out that the extra traffic would endanger school children going to South Elementary School.

(2)—Streets, despite attempts! at patching and repatching in the last several years, are in such bad shape that an expenditure of $150,000 would barely I bring them up to par with those | in Uhrichsville. (3)—Property values, because of several existing conditions, have plummeted with more than $800,000 lost just in the 1962 reappraisal, meaning less revenue for governmental opera- : tions. (4)—Dennison residents now are paying the highest municipal tax rate in the county—$8.90 per $1,000 valuation — with little visible results. The annexation would reduce Dennison residents’ taxes $2.20 per $1,000 valuation. “The attitude of the village leadership in regards to such things as the water problem and fixing a street for one of the clay plants has cost Dennison irreparable damage,” one proponent of annexation told me. They are the principal opponents of annexation and would have you believe the majority of taxpayers are against it but this is not true. Many are con- DAY BRIGHTENER > Anytime you think you’d like to be young again, think of algebra. vinced Twin City, O., is the only way out of the present plight.” Opponent.; of the annexation have frequently stated it would be better for the 2 towns to cooperate more and worry less about the annexation. Backers of the annexation point out that village council of Dennison held 15 regular meetings and 4 .special ones from Jan. I, 1963, through yesterday. Five of the meetings lacked a quorum and couldn’t transact business and that another meeting had to be recessed for 2 days. Annexation proponents express the feeling that a strengthened Twin City council could place the representatives of both areas at the same table where common problems could he ironed out. And with the aid of an expanded council more vigorous activity could he channeled into the areas of community See ANNEXATION, Rage 2 Brechbiei Is 'Maharajah' Frank Brechbiei of 1112 Race St., Dover, a member of the ; Dover Lions Club, will reign as “Maharajah" of the Union Hospital Auxiliary’s “High Fever Follies” next Wednesday and I Thursday in Dover High Audi-J torium.

Arthur Limbach, acting on behalf of Dennison Mayor Donald Huston, filed a petition in Common Pleas Court at noon today asking a new hearing in a dispute over Tuesday’s scheduled vote on the annexation of Dennison to Uhrichsville. Limbach asks the court to vacate and set aside a final order, judgment and decree en-j tared Wednesday by Judge J. II. Lamneck and order a new trial for the reason that “thel decision is not substantiated by j evidence and is contrary to law.” Judge Lamneck had ruled that I Ordinance 1454, which placed the issue on the May primary ballot, was legally passed and! in effect upheld an order from! Secretary of State Ted Brown to the Board of Elect ns to place the issue before Denni-1 son voters Tuesday.
