East Germany said one of its border guards was shot dead during the escape and called it murder. It was believed to be one of the biggest mass escapes since the Red wall was erected in the summer of 1961. All the refugees, 23 men, 31 women and 3 children, came through unhurt. Red guards found the tunnel just after the escape and fired submachine guns into the passageway. The East German Defense Ministry said the border guard was killed “by aimed shots from armed bandits” who had penetrated into East German territory through the tunnel. It seemed possible that the guard was in the tunnel and fell under the fire of his comrades. Informed sources said this was believed to be the third succesfsul tunnel exploit recently. West Berlin authorities try to keep escape methods secret. The latest tunnel was under Bernauerstrasses on the French sector border. When it w?as learned Red guards had found; the tunnel the city government! announced the escape. Since last Saturday the ref-Se* TUNNEL, Page 13 JA INTERVIEWS HELD.

Brown estimated today that 4.225.000 voters will go to the polls Nov. 3, a record for Ohio. Although final registration figures are incomplete.

Brown said he arrived at his estimate by using the figures supplied by all but a few of the 35 counties that conduct county-wide registration and the 12 with partial registration. had been stolen from her auto.

I Polling Site Changes Slated County Board of Elections Clerk Victor Turner today announced 4 changes of polling places for the Nov. 3, election. In Dover’s Ward 4, precinct D, the South Moravian Church at 310 Main St. will be used by voters instead of Horn Electric. Two changes are listed in New Philadelphia’s Ward I. For Precinct D, the new polling spot will be Central-Chrysler Plymouth Inc. at 543 W. High Ave. instead of the Gayle Jackson garage. In Precinct A, voters will go to the new county garage at 8th St. and Front Ave. SW, instead of Baker’s Food Market.

Coldwater ap- Tumer noted that the voting by absentees and disabled persons began today and would continue to 4 p.m. on Oct. 29. til afternoon. The indications are, from sources close to Coldwater, that the Republican presidential candidate will keep hammering away at his “soft on communism” charge against President Johnson. That phrase drew tremendous crowd reaction when Coldwater used it during a three-state whistlestop swing by train last week. Johnson poured scorn on the accusation at a Saturday news conference and advised Coldwater to drop it. Johnson said it was “the product of a third-string speechwriter” that got into public print without “prudent screening.” The President added that “the new and frightening voice of the Republican party — his way of referring to Coldwater — was merely trying out this charge to see if it works.” Coldwater does not relate the “soft on communism” charge to alleged internal subversion, as Local Issues Remain Block To Final Pact (Early Story Page 3) DETROIT (AP) - General Motors Corp. and the United Auto Workers announced tentative agreement today on a national labor contract, paving the way for an end to a nationwide strike that has idled some 280,000 workers.

I A raid on a New Philadelphia establishment proved fruitless for city police Saturday morning, although Chief Louis Clark said he took 2 bets on football games over the telephone while' the search was underway. Clark, saying the raid was a result of a tip that football bets were being taken there, said no charges are expected from the telephone call incident because of “lack of evidence.” “I talked to Prosecutor Harlan Spies,” Clark said, “and there just isn’t enough to go on.” Clark said 4 officers took part in the raid. Clark said the telephone caller identified himself as “Joe” and wanted to place a $1 and $2 bet on a football game. Clark said the man hung up before he could obtain more information on or learn his identity. Clark continued that he confronted the owner with the fact that he had taken the bets for him and got the reply: “You didn’t take them for me.
