7 CENTS4 Ohio Redistricting Plans Submitted
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP)—All of the proposals for remapping Ohio’s congressional districts a being turned over to the legislature by its special study committee. But four are marked for particular attention.
Chairman Charles F. Kurfess, R-Wood, said Friday the four are “examples of districts which tend to,comply’’ with guidelines the committee is recommending to the legislature.
Each would divide Franklin County East-West into two districts, split Summit County
North-South and slice into Montgomery County. Two would add part of western Lake County to Cuyahoga County’s 22nd District, three would change the

13th District (Erie, Huron, Lorain, Sandusky Counties) to to eliminate Sandusky (which would go to the 5th or 85th) and add Medina, and one would divide Lucas County East-West.
The committee looked over 15 other maps and Kurfess said these, plus testimony and all other background “in our bulky file” will go to the special session which starts Monday.
The redistricting effort results from a February ruling of the U. S. Supreme Court that congressional districts must be as nearly equal in population as possible.
Ohio has 24 members in the U. S. House of Representatives. One is elected at-large statewide because the 1961 and 1963 leg-See 4 OHIO, Page 14.

Rusk Meets Policy Chiefs
By ENDRE MARTON
WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Dean Rusk today begins discussions with European foreign policy chiefs to find out if there still is a chance of salvaging the late president John F. Kennedy’s grand design of a trans-Atlantic partnership.
Rusk is scheduled to meet with Joseph M. A. IL Luns, the foreign minister of the Netherlands. Monday, he will confer with Foreign Minister Patil-Henri Spank of Belgium and Nov. 22 with Gerhard Schroe-der, the foreign minister of West Germany.
Other meetings will be held early in December when a number of European foreign ministers are expected in the United States for the convening of the U.N. General Assembly.
In January, according to reports from London, British Prime Minister Harold Wilson is expected to come to Washington for talks with President Johnson on allied nuclear policy.
Nuclear weapons management and control is at the heart of the crisis facing the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
The diplomatic traffic will not be one-way entirely.

SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - A Santa Ana police captain and a lieutenant have been fired in the course of an investigation of a group of dissident policemen — most of them identified as heretical members of the John Birch Society.
Police Chief Edward J. Allen said Friday he dismissed Copt. Fred Hopper and Lt. Loran Norton, both 36 and veterans of the 130-man force, because they “were involved in a power play and an attempt to circumvent my power.”
Allen described Norton as “an advertised speaker for the John Birch Society.” Allen said Hopper is not a society member.
Allen, w'ho became chief here in 1955, said he had no quarrel with the Birch Society — “No one can be more anti-Commu-nist than I.”
City Manager Carl J. Thornton announced Thursday that an investigation of IO to 20 officers wras under way. The officers are accused of distributing anonymous pamphlets questioning the honesty and morality of Chief Allen.
Thornton said his information
“clearly indicates that the majority of the personnel implicated in this disruptive activity are members of the local chapter of the John Birch Society.
Thornton said the Birch Society has a policy of support for local law enforcement and that: “It is my belief that these individuals have used — or rather misused — the cloak of mem
bership in the John Birch Society for purposes entirely opposite to the national policy of that organization.”
John Rousselot, national public relations director for the Birch Society, Friday said he thought the society was being used “as a scapegoat for some internal problem in the Santa Ana Police Department.”

Pre-Election Letter Stirs Stone Creek School Parents
At a party there are 2 kinds of people — those who want to go home early and those who want to go home late. Trouble Is, they’re always married to each other.
A letter sent by the Stone Creek-Jefferson School Board member Richard Gasser, to school parents just before election day has angered opponents of the annexation to the New Philadelphia School District which was approved last Tuesday.
Possibility of still blocking the acceptance by the New Philadelphia board of the Stone Creek-Jefferson schools is being strongly considered, with committees to be formed to take action.
The annexation was approved by a narrow 197-177 vote. Those who have persistently opposed the merger with New Philadelphia charge that

Gasser’s letter was: (I) a
breach of promise; (2) a “scare act” causing some people to vote for the annexation when there was no immediate necessity for doing so and (3) a falsification of facts.
Gasser signed the letter as chairman of the Committee for Annexation to New Philadelphia.
