The report concluded that congregations of the study areas are not well supported financially, which is in part due to the economic level of the areas.
The study produced evidence that Tuscarawas Countians in Mill, Perry, Rush, Franklin and Lawrence Township either attend services, Sunday School in eluded, more than 75 per cent of the time or not at all.
Attendance at mid-week services each week were reported by 43.7 per cent of the people, with congregations in Coshocton County and the 3 southern Tuscarawas townships having more than 50 per cent at the mid-week services.
In trying to provide guidelines for future church pro
grams, the survey included the question—Why do some people in your community not go to church?
The most frequent reasons given were “lack of interest and laziness,” “no time because of work” and “do not like the congregation.”
“Don’t like the people” ranked second behind “interest” in both areas in Tuscarawas County.
The study’s major point on this question was people are aware that church programs do not create enough interest to make them want to become actively involved.
Another point was the younger members of a congregation were less inclined to think their congregations would merge with

Civil Defense Reorganization Set In County
DENNISON - Mayor Donald Huston, the county’s Civil Defense director, met with Leroy Johns, CD field director for the Ohio Adjutant General’s office in Columbus, to lay the groundwork for reorganizing the county program.
Approximately 75 shelters are posted in the county by the Corps of Engineers, but not one is equipped to supply either food or water, Huston states.
A shelter for 50 persons, costs $195 to stock and each shelter must be licensed.
“It is the responsibility of the elected officials of each village and city in the county, to see that shelters are equipped,” he stated.
If the surplus is available and the county is eligible, it is nos* sible for the federal government to aid on a 50-50 basis for equipment purchases.
Huston said that he plans to meet with an interested individual, concerning holding classes on the defense, in the various areas. Classes are limited to between 18 and 25 persons, with the instructor receiving his instructions from Columbus.
25 Cents An HourDennison Employes Seek Pay Hike
DENNISON - A letter dated Nov. ll was presented to Council last night, formally requesting a 25-cent hourly pay increase for all Village employes, plus a $100 clothing allowance for police and firemen.
The letter, signed by all employes, was presented by policemen George Cottrell and Gene McClusky and Fire Chief Harold Hill.
At the present time, the police and fire chief are paid $370
for a 48-hour 6-day week. Assistants receive $355 and the firemen and patrolmen get $345.
Albert Staneart, street commissioner, is paid $2 an hour for an 8-hour, 6-day week, with other street department employes receiving $1.79 per hour.
Cottrell told the members that during the John Gold administration the clothing allowance was dropped for a $15 a month increase and since that time officers have had to pay for all
of their equipment. He stated that it cost a policeman $185.
Joe Martin, who presented a .summary of uniform allowances for Uhrichsville, Cadiz and Newcomerstown, said “this makes Dennison look pretty rough.” He went on to say that “$100 is not going to alleviate any problems but it will provide assistance.”
Martin then moved that Council okay the clothing al
lowance, but Robert Murphy said the matter should be turned over to the finance committee for further study.
Although none of the Councilmen voiced opposition to the increases, John Dooling said that he did not know “how it would be fit into the budget since it is pretty well depleted now because the men have been working 7 days a week and
