MERGER WITH NEW PHILADELPHIA AIRED Stone Creek School Move Is Pushed STONE CREEK — Efforts to meet a planned July I, 1965, merger with New Philadelphia School District are moving forward, it was revealed here last night during a meeting of Stone Creek-Jefferson School Board. According to President Ed Lorenz, it is hoped a plan can be submitted for review by the board within 30 days and prior to a public airing before residents of the district. Voters gave their go-ahead to the annexation of Stone Creek-Jefferson to New Philadelphia 197-176 last Nov. 3. Lorenz said that he, along with Clerk Vernon Hisrich and Supt. Harry E. Gintz, had met Monday night with 4 New Philadelphia board members. “As it stands now,” he stated, “the 2 clerks (Hisrich and New Philadelphia Clerk Don Wagner) will get together and prepare a plan on the operation of the district. “The 2 administrators (Gintz and New Philadelphia Supt. Leon Force) will prepare plans pertinent to the district’s administration. When this is completed the 2 boards will meet.” During the meeting, County Supt. Linton Honaker, via telephone, talked with Gintz on the law governing the transfer of territory out of a city school system. Section 3311.24 of the Ohio Revised Code specifies that the State Board of Education must hold a public hearing on any transfer and then only in even number years. New Philadelphia board members have inferred they would favor the transfer of fringe areas in the Stone Creek District to either Garaway, Newcomerstown or Southern Local. However, the law would prohibit any such transfer until after Jan. I, 1966. According to Honaker, this restriction applies only to city board transfers. Even with a hearing, the state board has the right to reject the transfer. This section does not apply to any county board transfers, such as the one being contemplated for residents in the Pleasant Valley and 7 Mile Dr. area to the New Philadelphia District from the Goshen Local District. The same section could apply to any fringe area transfers in the Rush Local District if and when the county board acts on a request to transfer the entire district to the new Twin City system. Attending last night’s 2-hour session, devoted primarily to discussion of the annexation, was Gene Hawkins of RD I, Stone Creek. Hawkins represents a group opposing the New Philadelphia move. His basic contention, and he is receiving support from Board Member Vie Turner, is that voters were rushed into making a hasty decision, for which they were not properly informed of all facts. He also contends that all possibilities for the benefit of Stone Creek-Jefferson School District See STONE CREEK, Page ll OHIO Forecast Lean For Rainfall UNITED STATES (AP) COLUMBUS, Ohio Rain, rain and more rain what Ohio needs most to end a statewide drought.

(AP) — President Johnson, pledging to “take up arms” with Mexico in fighting disease, poverty, hunger and ignorance, pressed ahead today with final talks with Mexico’s President-elect Gustavo Diaz Ordaz. Diaz Ordaz, himself a landslide election victor who will be inaugurated Dec. I as the Mexican chief executive, was winding up a 27-hour stay at t h e Johnson Ranch. Diaz Ordaz was to return with his wife to Mexico City after another formal session with Johnson and a private luncheon. The order of the day was not confined wholly to business, however. There was the inevitable tour of the American President’s 400 acres, with Johnson as the enthusisatic guide. In welcoming Diaz Ordaz Thursday afternoon, Johnson said: “We are meeting here to talk together and to work together, and to take up arms together against the ancient ene- at all by February.

Further, if Federal aid is granted and a flood-control program established for the area, the district would have to bear anywhere from 23 to 47 per cent of the initial costs and property owners would be assessed individually for payment benefits. These facts were revealed were yesterday at a public hearing conducted by a reviewing team from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources on the application for federal aid made to the Ohio Water Commission by a steering committee representing Beaverdam Creek Watershed residents. % Th steering committee is now made up of officials of the Tuscarawas Soil and Water Conservation District, the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District-and Tuscarawas Coun ty Commissioners. Last July 13 a public meeting of Beaverdam Creek residents and property owners was held with interested local officials. They decided to make application for government assistance, using official surveys and studies of flood conditions in the Watershed and the $100,000 damage estimates of flood losses submitted by residents in the area.

He is a guard on the Elmwood Park High School freshman football team, and he plans to try out for basketball. Bruce, 14, is a typical boy except he has no fingers and has only one toe on each foot. The only thing he can’t do, his mother says, is tie his shoelaces. “It’s very important to continue your education and try these different things,” Bruce said. “You’ve got to at least try.” Bruce, who was born handicapped, began his education at the Luther Burbank School for School, a regular public school in River Grove, a suburb of Chicago. In the fourth grade Bruce began playing the slide trombone. He manipulates it with his wrists and now is a member of the Elmwood Park High band. “Bruce is very strongly determined to do things,” his mother, Mrs. Raymond E. Gondola, said. “And he always finds a way.” “When he was three years old,” she said, “we dropped a penny on the floor to see whether he would pick it up. He stood there for a few minutes, then moistened his hands and picked it up.” Bruce is the oldest of four boys and the only one with a handicap. He wants to go to college but hasn’t decided what he wants to do professionally. Mrs. Gongola said Bruce maintains a good academic average. He works as a junior counselor at a camp for handicapped children during the summer. Bruce is 5 feet 2 and weighs 120 pounds, but football is a nat ural sport for the Gongolas.

Refugees from the flood told Vietnamese authorities they had been accosted by Viet Cong men and forced to tear up their identity papers. Widespread elimination of the papers would help the Communists to move with comparative freedom through the disrupted region. Reliable sources said today the refugees disclosed the Viet Cong movements during interviews in government relief compounds in the coastal resort of Nhatrang and at Quinhon Thursday. Despite the floods, which have drowned more than 5,000 persons and wrecked communications, students in Saigon, staged new antigovernment demonstrations today. Shouting demands for the end of Premier Tran Van Huong’s infant civilian government, several hundred students shoved through police ranks and assembled before the central market. About 1,000 persons gathered to shout “down with dictatorship, communism and neutralism. The Saigon government can do little about Viet Cong activity in the flooded regions.
