J. YOUNG WILLIAM HINIG Young T opples Taft/ Young 3 Dem Rivals In Sheriff Race By James Davis Daily Reporter City Editor Incumbents withstood considerable pressure from fellow Democratic party members to earn spots in the November election in yesterday’s primary races. Sheriff A. J. (Tony) Young, Recorder Theodore Underwood, Clerk of Courts George LaPorte, Prosecutor Harlan Spies anc Commissioner Jake Dummermuth won in the contested races, along with William Hinig, who is seeking the vacated state representative post. The victories by Spies and LaPorte assure their continuance in office because they, along with Treasurer Vie Martinet (D) and Coroner Philip Doughten (D), have no November opposition. Young polled 3,869 votes to defeat Leonard Simonetti, Roswell mayor (3,240), Joseph Frenzel, former state patrolman (2,766) and Nick Nigro, star state witness in the Dover bribery trials, who received 186 votes from a total of 10,360 Democrats voting. Spies’ margin over Atty. George Demis was smaller, 4,991 to 4,719, but the rural Dover resident’s large rural plurality in the northern part of the county offset a 500 plurality in Demis’ hometown of Uhrichsville. Underwood topped his 4 competitors with a total vote of 2,783. Others were: Loren Vasbinder, Sheriff Department deskman (2,113), Samuel Baio, operator of a poodle salon (1,846), Harold Ladraeh, former New Philadelphia store owner, (1,568) and Richard Shonk, New Philadelphia remodeling contractor (841). While the 4 from the Dover-New Philadelphia area were splitting the vote in that district, Underwood scored heavily in his bailiwick, the Twin City area to win easily. An anticipated close race between Hinig and Atty. Dan Lehigh of Dover for state representative failed to materialize as Hinig ran strong in all sections of the county. His total was 4,094 compared with Lehigh’s 2,766 and Paul Schreiner’s 2,062. The latter is the former mayor of Gnadenhutten. Dummermuth led 7 other Democrats in the balloting for commissioner with 4,673 votes. William Winters of New Philadelphia, an employe of a Dover trucking firm, gained the other spot on the Democrat ticket in November with 2,400. He was followed by: Thomas Moore (2,126); Everette Burdette (1,848); John Reese (1,828); James Kelley (1,618), and J. Bert Gardner (1,166).    See    YOUNG TOPPLES, Page 8 Highway Bond Issue Gets Solid Support By ART PARKS Associated Press Writer COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio voters plumped solidly for a $500-million highway bond is sue Tuesday. The winning total was about 65 per cent. Only two counties, Fayette and Paulding, opposed it. With 11,710 of the state’s 13,-311 polling places reporting, the vote of overwhelming approval stood: Yes 893,012, No 470,097. Republican Gov. James A. Rhodes was happy over the success of his second bond issue proposal in less than a year. Voters approved his $250-million request for higher education and other purposes last November. The governor said he will confer soon with legislative leaders on the date for a special session of the General Assembly to pass laws needed to put the constitutional amendment in effect. The special session probably will be held before the Republican National Convention in Bud-July. HARLAN SPIES GEORGE LaPORTE JACOB DUMMERMUTH Both Rhodes and the Committee for Highway Progress thanked the voters and expres sed belief approval of the bond issue will help Ohio’s industrial growth. “Ohio voters may be assured See ROADS, Page 8 Jobless Pay Claims Down Jobless benefit claims continue to drop in Tuscarawas County, according to officials of the Bureau of Unemployment Compensation office at New Philadelphia. New claims last week totaled 58, up one over the week ending April 30, but the figure was 38 less than the May, 1963, weekly average of 96. Continuing claims last week totaled 503, which was 39 less than the previous week and 235 less than the May, 1963, weekly I average of 738. To Collide For Senate By REED SMITH Associted Press Writer COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP)-Rep. Robert Taft. Jr., son of the late “Mr. Republican,” and Democratic incumbent Stephen M. Young hurdled the civil rights issue to clinch senatorial nominations in Ohio’s primary. Ted W. Brown, secretary of state and a veteran vote getter, banked on his civil rights opposition in a sharp clash with Taft for the Republican nomination but failed to carry a single county in Tuesday’s voting. “The results indicate that the civil rights issue perhaps was not as important as Mr. Brown thought,” Taft said in a victory statement. Young’s nomination was unintentionally challenged by ailing Marine Lt. Col. John H. Glenn, who withdrew from the race too late to have his name removed from the ballot. Glenn, first American to orbit the earth, drew “therapy” support, but Young outvoted him by more than 2-1. Taft’s ratio over Brown was more than 3-1. Returns from 12,610 of the state’s 13,311 polling places gave Taft 583,540 votes and Brown 156,641. On the Democratic side, Young polled 481,113 and Glenn 193,758. Brown asserted in his free-swining campaign that the civil rights bill pending in Congress “would ultimately saddle every citizen in Ohio with trouble-making hordes from the attorney general’s office delving into the lives of individuals, the conduct of businesses. . . and into the a d rn i n i s tration of our school.*.” Taft took pride in his support of the bill in the House. “While I’m not claiming it is rn Ina mm    rn m   rn    w. ii a m m ■ November Battle Lineup SHERIFF ♦Tony Young (D) and Sam Bond (R).

The main issue rejected was the proposed annexation of Dennison to Uhrichsville. For the New Philadelphia School District’s bid for much-needed additional tax of 3 mills received approval 1,955 to 1,817, a margin of 138. In the city the vote was 1,622 to 1,504, with only 9 out of 26 precincts disapproving.

Kirwan of Youngstown chalked up the Democratic nomination in impressive style Tuesday and two other incumbents held leads in Ohio’s primary election. Kirwan was an easy winner in the 19th District while Democrats Michael A. Feighan of Cleveland in the 20th and Charles A. Vanik of Cleveland in the 21st appeared headed for victories. Nineteen of Ohio’s 23 district congressmen, unopposed, were assured of renomination. One other incumbent, Rep. Oliver P. Bolton, did not seek the seat in the lith District and instead won the Republican nomination for congressman-at-large.

Groh stated today that Ralph W. Glazer, chairman of the Civil Service Commission, has sent a list of 3 men who have been deemed eligible for the patrolman vacancy on the police force. Seven men took the qualifying examination. In a letter to Safety Director William Sweitzer, the names of Sheldon (I. Herman of 218 W. 2nd St., Frederick Capozella of 500‘/i Broad St. and James Birtcher of rear 416 N. Tuscarawas Ave. were submitted for consideration by Groh, Sweitzer and Mayor C. LeMoyne Luthy. Birtcher is presently employed by the police department as a dispatcher. The test, which was administered yesterday, was necessary since the 3-man board could not find an applicant suitable to them or the police department from the previous Civil Service list. The vacancy occurred when Dean Wassem resigned from the force on April 30. ny I). Johnson of New Philadel phia ran third behind Robert D Freeman of Canton in his bid for Democratic nomination for U.S. representative from the 16th District. Freeman, himself a loser as candidate for Congress in the 1960 primary, won an over whelming victory in yesterday’s vote in Tuscarawas, Stark and Wayne counties. His total was 20,144 compared with 14,976 for Atty. John Locke, veteran Democratic figure of Canton and 13,-927 for Johnson. In Tuscarawas County Johnson drew 6,938 votes, Freeman 1,675 and Locke only 987. But in Stark, home county for both Freeman and Locke, they received 16,880 and 12,919 votes respectively, with Johnson getting 6,017. The vote in Wayne County was: Freeman 1,489, Locke 1,-070 and Johnson 972. The 3 main cities in Tuscarawas County gave Johnson fairly strong support: New Philadelphia, 1,569; Dover, 1,068 and Uhrichsville, 603. Rep. Frank T. Bow, unopposed as Republican nominee in his bid for an eighth term won a tremendous vote of 46,212, with 36,066 in Stark, his home county, 6,394 in Wayne and 3,-652 in Tuscarawas. Atty. James Patrick of New Philadelphia and Mrs. Betty Lehigh of Dover won surprising second place in the nomination for member of the Democratic In the men’s division, Patrick received 6,603 votes in Tuscarawas County, 6,617 in Stark and 999 in Wayne. But he was outclassed bv Paul D. Barthel-meh, who got 16,540 in Stark, 1,304 in Tuscarawas and 543 in Wayne. The third candidate, John H. Weaver had a total of 9,848 in Stark, 1,109 in Tuscarawas and 1,442.

Dover Park Opens Friday Service Director II. S. Ream announced today that the Dover City Park will be opened Friday even though official opening has not been scheduled until May 29. The park hours will be 8 a m. to 8 p.m. Water will be turned on and toilet facilities will be available. The move has apparently been made because of the number of people wishing to use the park since warm weather has apparently arrived. Coldwater Snares Indiana COP Votes INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (AP)-Gov. George C. Wallace, the Alabama invader who championed states’ rights, claimed a victory for his cause today, but Demiicratic Gov. Matthew E. Welsh held the field for President Johnson in Indiana’s presidential primary. Wallace, who made his campaign a crusade against Johnson’s civil rights bill, piled up a big protest vote in Tuesday’s balloting, but his showing fell short of the upset race he ran in Wisconsin against another fa-vorite-son stand-in for Johnson. In a Republican race all but eclipsed by the steaming Democratic contest, Arizona Sen. Barry Coldwater grabbed Indiana’s 32 votes at the Republican National Convention. But former Minnesota Gov. Harold E. Stassen, his only serious rival, made an unexpected dent in his margin. All of the 51 Democratic votes at the Democratic national convention will be controlled by Welsh.
