Dover Daily Reporter (Newspaper) - May 22, 1964, Dover, Ohio Persistence is Key To Johnson's First 6 Months In Office By FRANK CORMIER WASHINGTON (AP) — Lyndon Baines Johnson, today six months in the presidency, is reported to be training his sights on a grand-slam victory at the polls in November — 50 states and the District of Columbia. Johnson, who stepped out of the background Nov. 22 to grasp the torch of government from the fallen John F. Kennedy, often talks—Texas style—about “standing tall.” Friends say he hopes to stand taller on the political horizon in1 another six months than any other president in U.S. history. And like the army of other politicians, small and mighty, Johnson intends to stand on his record. He has, in this half-year from autumn to spring, labored like a muledriver to try to whip the New Frontier legislative program through Congress — but emblazoned with the fresh LBJ brand. A dedicated poll watcher, Johnson is very much aware that a recent Gallup poll credits him with greater popularity than President Franklin D. Roosevelt enjoyed in May 1936. That was the year FDR carried every state except Maine and Vermont, rolling up a landslide record that still stands. Johnson calls Roosevelt his “second daddy,” but being a man who likes to stand tall he intends to do his “dead level best”—a pet Johnson phrase— to beat that record. If this sounds audacious, the President is not one to sell himself short. Woven into the record of his first six months in office is a never-say-die spirit. As leader of Senate Democrats in the 1950s, Johnson’s strong point was an ability to compromise the views of opposing factions and fashion coalitions capable of enacting major legislation. In fact, his emphasis on compromise was so marked that, at times, dis- See PERSISTENCE, Page 7 Reporter Columnist Marlow Is A Pulitzer Prize Winner The Daily Reporter HOME EDITION VITT*' VOL. 60.

Bulb Vandals Hit Dover Park Park Supt. Clarence Stucky fold Dover police yesterday that 19 light bulbs and a spotlight were broken at City Park by vandals sometime between Wednesday night and early Thursday morning. Service Director H. S. Ream stated that actual cost of replacing the broken lights is small, but that such replacements will cost the city an unnecessary expense. He added that patrolling the area to combat such vandalism is nearly impossible. Stucky also announced that the park will officially open on May 29. Park hours will be from 7:30 a m. to ll p.m. and watchmen will be on duty. The Board of Education announced its decision to abandon the plan last night following 2-hffur special meeting on the problem in Hiland High School, at nearby Berlin. The Amish have denounced }ow enrollment. The board had planned to transport students between several elementary schools in order to obtain more space. Also discussed was the future of Hiland High because of a the plan as ‘de facto integration’/ since it was devised several months ago. The building, it was pointed out, was constructed to house 325 students.

Rhodes lauded the appreciation dinner as a “tribute to the present industry which provides 80 per cent of the jobs in Tuscarawas County, is the biggest taxpayer, the largest contributor to charity and represents 95 per cent of county’s security.” He mentioned Bobbie Brooks Inc., terming it the fastest growing women’s apparel firm in the U.S. “Five of our neighboring states have sought a Bobbie Brooks plant,” he said. “One has offered the firm $120,000 to locate a plant. (The Community Improvement Corp. of Tuscara was County is investing $60,000 in the county plant.) “This new plant means 400 jobs and an annual payroll of $1 million which will result in an additional sales tax to the county of $540,000 over the next 30 years, the life expectancy of the pilot plant being built. “The plant also means 160 new homes will be bought in a year’s time, 176 new automo Coworkers' 'Wildcat' Ends UHRICHSVILLE - Evans Pipe Co. is again in operation today following a half-day wildcat strike at noon yesterday by United Brick and Clay Workers Union, Local 499 because of a disputed safety device for a steam press. Company officials had agreed to install the device in negotiations on plant rules during the recent 3-week strike, but said they were unable to secure it immediately. The men claimed they were unwilling to work without it, but a telephone call to the manufacturer resulted in the device’s installation by starting time this morning. Approximately 50 attended the session, an estimated 20 of whom were Amish. “We would like to have our country schools,” one Amish-man said. “The children are spending too many hours away from home.” We have had to reduce ject courses,” he claimed. sub- Weathervane YESTERDAY High 81    Low    45 Elsewhere In U.S. High Low Pr.

Being held in County Jail are Roger Espenschied, 19, of 402 “I hate to think what will happen at Hiland in 5 years— athletically and scholastically. We have lost 30 students in the last 5 years. You better start looking into the high school operation to see what will happen,” he suggested. Schrock also said his solution to the problem would be a consolidation with Garaway and Baltic High Schools. “I know there will be opposition, but I can see no other avenue open. “We can exist, but the student is the loser. . .he is losing right now. Do you have the right to give high school students a second rate education.” He noted that state standards for an efficient high school operation is 250 students. The board passed out mimeographed sheets showing that the East Holmes tax rate is more than 6 mills less than that of the West Holmes District. (21.10 compared to 26.60).

Faced with Communist advances posing increasingly serious threats to Laos and neigh boring South Viet Nam, U.S policymakers have been consid ering a wide variety of moves, including: Strikes against North Viet Nam, dispatch of more air and sea power into the area, landing of forces in Thailand if the Thai government agrees such help is necessary, and direct military intervention in Laos itself. Further steps will be ordered, officials said, if the situation continues to deteriorate.

No Action Seen Now On Filling Dempster Post Assistant William Harrington, in the Ohio Secretary of State’s office, today advised Board of Elections Clerk Victor Turner that Jess Dempster’s position as state representative will not be filled until the November general election. Section 3521.03 of Revised Code directs that the governor must issue a writ calling for a special election to fill a vacancy which occurs in the office of representatives to the General Assembly. “It is unlikely that the governor will issue such a writ,” Harrington told Turner today in a telephone conversation, “since there is no important business presently before the General Assembly.” Both Turner and Harrington agreed that the cost of staging a special election to fill the vacancy caused by Dempster’s death, would be a heavy burden upon the county. Turner estimated the cost as being over $10,000 since it would be coun-tywide. Furthermore, Turner pointed out, only 5 months remain until the general election when the race between Democrat nominee, William Hinig, arid Republican, Delmar Hair, will fill the post. In view of the statute and the statement from Harrington today, Turner said the Board of Elections would take no action until notice from the governor would direct otherwise. rn % m $    -    *    *    rn    * tm * ON THE INSIDE Around The World  ........ 6 Churches .............. 22    &    23 Hospital News .........   2 Obituaries .................... 2 Spoils .................. 17    &    18 Television .................... 20 Women a Pa^es ........ 14    &    IS ;
