Dover Daily Reporter (Newspaper) - October 9, 1964, Dover, Ohio Clothing Firm Ends Automation, Reverts To By CHARLES MAHER LOS ANGELES (AP) - So many companies were turning to automation that people began to wonder where it would all end. Well, it already has ended at the clothing firm of Phelps-Ter-kel, which operates six stores in the Los Angeles area. The company decided that its punchcard accounting system had too many holes in it and that automation ought to go. So, with their latest monthly statements, Phelps-Terkel customers received a machine card with this message on the back: ‘Please fold, bend, mutilate and staple.” And, on the front: “You are holding the last punched card you’ll ever receive from Phelps-Terkel. We’ve tried to make our peace with automation. But it hasn’t worked. Ours is just not a machine business. “Consequently, we are reverting to our slightly archaic yet highly personalized accounting methods. We think you’ll like our new-old billing method better. We know we will.” Dave Phelps, firm president, said this bold step backward was applauded by customers. One wrote: “Thank God for people.” “We automated a little less than a year ago,” Phelps said. “Some people closed their accounts because they didn’t feel a business like ours should.” And, Phelps said, there were technical problems. “One time,” he said, “a janitor got a check for $5,000 for two weeks’ work. “The question was whether a small company like ours would be getting enough out of it to make it worth while.” When the decision was made, the store’s advertising firm was called on to compose the notice to customers. “We saw this as an opportunity to appeal to humanness,” said Tom Faust, an advertising man.

I. The reaction was a whole lot less than pleasant. The finance committee gave approximately 140 employes a week to submit, in writing, any requests for more exceptions for con- additional money or sideration. Reasons for the dissatisfaction were varied, despite the fact that the finance committee proposed paying $5 a month on hospitalization in 1965, $10 in 1966 and $15 in 1967 and 1968. The committee also proposed improvements in sick leave accumulation, an additional half-day vacation pay, additional classifications and added money for specific jobs. Council President Art Hanni, who attended the session along with Mayor C. LeMoyne Luthy, Service Director H. S. Ream and Auditor Derlin Miller, said he would attempt to have 2 meetings on the proposed pay,a $50 annual clothing allow-schedule prior to its adoption ance also proposed for desk-the last week in November, jmen.

Deskmen and patrolmen were offered around 20 cents more, with Goldwater Raps Johnson Game' By JACK BELL LOS ANGELES (AP)—Sen. Barry Goldwater came back today to the state where he nailed down the Republican nomination to accuse President Johnson of playing a “dangerous game” of coexistence with the Soviet Union. The GOP presidential candidate sought to stir his California precinct followers into the kind of action that gave him a victory in the June 2 presidential primary. He lashed out at the Democratic President as a man who was afraid to take the risk of standing up to the Communists. “In defense of freedom -- and if ever the boundaries of the free world are to be enlarged — there will always be risk,” he said.    v “But I submit that the greater risk, in the face of Communist aggfession, is to do nothing — still worse, to submit — and worst of all, to seek new and illusory accommodations with an antagonist that has never retreated an inch from a resolute purpose that contemplates the destruction of our world. “Providing the weather is right,” he^ said, “we hope to turn water into the lake bed within another 2 weeks.” With the blessings of the New Philadelphia Park Board, the Jaycees undertook the project last year, first removing all diseased trees from the perimeter of the lake. Late this August the organization contracted with Ben Cookson Inc. to begin excavating the lake area. According to the spokesman, Don Glenn, an architect with Marr, Knapp and Crawfis in New Philadelphia and a mem lake,” he said, at the the silty soil bottom of the “we first had to 4-1 degree ratio.

Goldwater is pinning most of his hopes of winning vital California, with its 40 electoral votes, on a “get out the vote” drive by his supporters in sprawling Los Angeles County. Denison Kitchel, his campaign director, credited Goldwater’s victory over New York Gov. See RAPS ‘GAME’, Page 2 LBJ Assails Barry Critique Of Late JFK By FRANK CORMIER EN ROUTE WITH JOHNSON (AP) —■ President Johnson rapped Barry Goldwater today for questioning John F. Kennedy’s motives in handling the Cuban missile crisis. Johnson, invading Kentucky and Tennessee, also took issue with his Republican rival on the question of dealing with the locally important Tennessee Valley Authority. The President tacked a “not for sale” sign on TVA, part of which Goldwater has talked of selling.

A $300,000 damage suit, stemming from the same crash, had already been filed on Sept. IO. Kenneth R. Limpert of North Olmstead filed the latest suit for benefits to himself and 4 surviving children, ages 4 to 9. His wife, Regina, 30, an expectant mother, was killed in the collision between a station wagon driven by Marsha J. Bigler, a minor of Midvale, and the car driven by Leonard Schmidt, 43, of Greensburg, O. The deceased woman was a passenger in the Schmidt auto. Schmidt, who is hospitalized with severe injuries suffered in the smashup, had filed the first suit, charging Miss Bigler with responsibility for the fatal accident. Miss Bigler, herself, was indicted for second-degree manslaughter by the September Grand Jury. At her arraignment, she entered an innocent plea. Miss Bigler allegedly made a 180-degree turn, directly into the path of Schmidt’s car as she turned from County Road 29 onto Route 250. Miss Bigler and 5 other passengers in her car were injured, with 3 being hospitalized. A third passenger, besides Mrs. Limpert and Schmidt, was also injured in the death car.
