Tonight’s “thunder” may come from the New Philadel phia Elks auditorium where the Tuscarawas County Democratic Central Committee will reorganize, beginning at 7:30. According to one long-time Democrat the session is expected to shape up as a battle between Howard (Bud) Mercer and Atty. James Patrick, both of New Philadelphia, for chairmanship of the County Executive Committee. The “kicker” in this battle is a long-standing custom of the Central Committee that those named to the Executive Committee must serve at least 2 years as a committeeman prior to being named to the executive gitimate action but a rare one. group.

Surrounded by a cast which excels in every department, Linette Courtright as Joan of Arc held the center of the stage, developing from a simple peasant girl to a compassionate heroine with tears in her eyes. She played her Joan with a delicate touch when needed, letting her love and joy of life shine through, but did not falter within a wide range of deeper emotions. Her fear was real and her decision to not renounce herself was a triumph for mankind. The overall impact of the play, which undeniably falls in the category of serious drama, leaves the theatergoer with an impression of having experienced a comprehension of an historical enigma and a unique involvement with life. Much of the credit must be (placed with Director Betty Mc-1turning and make-up and the Creary, who unerringly cast the all-important “little touches” production and drew such im-:    n ,    .    ,    combined to create a 15th Cen- pressive portrayals from each ,    ,    ,    , r    V,.,    ..    ,    tury atmosphere on a nearly- cast member.

Barry Coldwater was the top vote-getter in Tuesday’s Nebraska Republican presidential preference primary, where he was the only candidate listed. But he ran into a strong tide of write-in votes for former Vice President Richard M. Nixon and others. The Arizona senator was barely scoring the majority of votes his supporters had predicted before the election. He had just over 50 per cent of the vote while Nixon—who in 1960 had the presidential nomination that Coldwater seeks this year—had about 31 per cent. Goldwater’s major announced rival for the nomination, Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York, polled a sizable vote in the uncontested West Virginia preference primary. Rockefeller had no write-in competition because such votes are not counted in West Virginia. Returns from 1,455 of Nebraska’s 2,148 precincts gave Coldwater 45,255 votes. The write-in votes went this way: 27,314 to Nixon, 14.037 to Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge, 1,571 to Rockefeller, and 983 divided among a handful of others. In West Virginia, with 1,501 of 2,664 precincts reporting, Rockefeller had 62,426, about 64 per cent of the total vote cast in a lackluster Rpublican gubernatorial primary.

Jesse P. Milligan of RD I, Uhrichsville, appealed Young’s removal order to the Civil Service Personnel Board of Review Yesterday the board modified Young’s removal order to a suspension without pay for 30 days, with reinstatement to be made at the expiration of the suspension. The board, in making the April 13 reinstatement, excluded the county’s paying of Milligan any sum he may have earned at other jobs during the suspension. It was learned that the mechanic had employment for 2 weeks during the 30-day period For this he will receive no reimbursement. Milligan was represented by Labor Counsel Atty. Leonard Seegel of Columbus. Young and his counsel, Assistant Prosecutor James E. Patrick, also were present. Young had fired Milligan on grounds of inefficiency, incompetency and insubordination.

Page I - GOLDWATER Amish Protest 'Cool Tempers Of Violence' Integrated' Pupil Plans NEW YORK (AP)—Sen. Barry Goldwater says there will be “more violence in our streets” unless the nation gets an administration “that will cool the fires and tempers of violence” in the civil rights struggle. The Arizona senator, a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, said Tuesday night at a capacity-crowd rally in Madison Square Garden that Republicans do not “want to see government as the cheer leader for a frightful game of j violence, destruction and dis-j obedience.” The turnout of nearly 20,000 in the home state of a rival for the nomination, Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller, was the largest of Goldwater’s campaign. The partisan crowd cheered and applauded wildly throughout. Goldwater told the crowd, which included some Negroes, See TEMPERS, Page 6 ★ - ROCKEFELLER - Encouraged By Surveys PORTLAND, Ore. (AP)—Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller entered the closing phase of his campaign in the Oregon presidential-preference primary today reporting he was “encouraged and optimistic” by polls reporting he is gaining ground. But the governor agreed with most other observers there was no way of telling whether his newly gamed momentum would carry him to victory in the voting Friday. He commented in an hour-long television show Tuesday night. The Rockefeller forces attributed his gains largely to the fact he is the only active, on-the-scene candidate of the six Republicans whose names will appear on the ballot. That point is made repeatedly in all campaign activity. “You’ve still got one candi- See SURVEYS, Page 6 Court Dismisses Bond Challenge COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP)—The economic situation No important new recommen- Ohio Railroad.

Paul J. Lynch, Columbus school teacher and former leg islator, challenged financing enactments of the bond issue. Judges agreed unanimously that Lynch was not qualified to bring his action because he is not a bond holder. Lynch contended that a pen-ny-a-pack cigarette tax, imposed to retire a $150 million bond issue voted in 1955, should not have been revised to make the revenue available for retirement of the new bond issue. “It should be observed that Weathervane C.

Appearing at Monday night’s school board meeting, the Amish parents claimed that if the board carried out is transportation plans, they would be forced to institute private schools for their children. The parents were among 60 at the session. Supt. E. J. Miller explained the board’s student relocation plan was designed to relieve crowded conditions in some buildings and eliminate combination classes. Under the relocation plan, 2 sections of students at the all-Amish public Beidler School will be transported to Winesburg, integrating them according to grade. Miller stated it is offensive to him that Beidler is commonly referred to as “the Amish School.” He further stated that the Amish community can no longer “live alone” and asked all parents to support the new plan. Miller said that Walnut Creek would have Grades 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8; Berlin, Grades 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8, and Winesburg, one section of Grades I and 3 and all remaining 5th Grade students.
