Dover Daily Reporter (Newspaper) - October 15, 1964, Dover, Ohio ROADWAY GETS 'WORKOUT' Interstate 77 Opening Seen Boost For County JPtf    £- v# Mf1 /    '    M    LI ® Interstate Route 77 was getting i food workout late yesterday afternoon when I this picture was taken. Many area residents tried it out for the first time following its opening yesterday and traffic was flowing at a steady pace today._ By Pete Groh Daily Reporter Staff Writer Hundreds of area families jammed their way onto Interstate 77, west of Dover, last night, giving the family “jalopy” a taste of superhighway travel. And from reports circulating around the area today, the project is being heralded as a big boom to the county. The 7.2-mile stretch from Green Gables, west of New Philadelphia, to Strasburg was opened at 3 p.m., following an impressive ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by an estimated 300 area residents. Cost of the project was $11,487,793. Main speaker for the event was Gov. James Rhodes, who “replayed” his well-grooved, record of industrial growth for Ohio and Ohioans. “Interstate 77 will be completed from Marietta to Cleveland by 1966 — 1967 at the latest,” he told the gathering, that included county, city and state officials and other dignitaries. “You are to be thanked for that,” Rhodes said, referring to the approval given a $500-mil-lion bond issue for highway construction and improvements. Stating he was impressed with the “spirit in Tuscarawas County,” the governor cited that 90 per cent of the cost of the 3 Interstate systems in Ohio is being paid by the federal government. “Highway building is a project for Republicans and Democrats alike,” he said. “We will be the first state in the Union to complete an interstate system.” Claiming that approval of the The Daily Reporter HOME EDITION VOL 61.

Rhodes pointed out that Ohio is loosing $100-million per year tourist trade because of lack of good highways. “We are going to make it possible for people to get to Ohio to see historical sights,” he pledged. “This (IS 77) is the way you get it.” Returning to his favorite topic of “industry for Ohio,” Rhodes began: “The only way to get industry and jobs is with good highways. You cannot walk away and leave the governor or other state or county officials do it. “This is the way you become erosive. “We have status quo counties (population wise),” he said, “and young people are leaving because they cannot find jobs.” He said Ohioans are “derelict See INTERSTATE, Page 7 ★ Headon Route 8 Collision Hikes County Deaths To 23 •v. v s *'’ * ^ KIU OUT 20 YEARS WITH PRESIDENT BULLETIN PARIS (AP) — Radio Station Europe No. I said tonight it had learned from official Soviet sources in Paris that Premier Khrushchev had resigned “from all or part of his official functions.” The Radio quoted its unnamed source as saying the resignation was for reasons of health.

'Moonshining’ Fine Levied Mrs. Fredricka Grant, 57, of RD I, Mineral City, was fined $700 and costs in Northern District County Court yesterday for moonshining. Judge Charles Eckert, who earlier yesterday dismissed moonshining charges against 2 others when no venue was established, suspended $575 on condition the woman pay the remaining $125 within 3 months. A son of the woman, Francis, 19, of Canton, was fined $100 and costs for giving false Information to a police officer after being arrested by sheriff deputies in a raid on the Grant home Sept. 18. He was returned to county jail when he could not pay the fine. Mrs. Fredricka Grant and another son, Pete, 20, of Alliance, in other action before Judge Eckert, pleaded not guilty to a charge of possession of stolen property. They were bound to the Grand Jury under $1,000 bond posted by an Akron firm. The pair was charged by Mrs. Harietta Mizer of Dover, who identified furniture in the Grant home that had been taken from a nearby residence she owns. Charges against Mrs. Della Grant, 31, of Bolivar and the older son were dismissed by Eckert yesterday morning after assistant prosecutor James Thomas failed to prove the alleged violation occurred in Sandy Township, Tuscarawas Coun- lila Woman Cited Charlene C.

Jenkins, a top assistant to President Johnson for 20 years, wras arrested at the Washington YMCA on morals charges in 1959 and again last week, police records show. The White House has announced his resignation. A soft-spoken Texan who was an Army major in World War II, Jenkins, 46, and the father of six, has been associated with the President since Johnson was a congressman. His resignation was announced in New York where the President was campaigning Wednesday night. Records of the police morals division showed that Jenkins was arrested five years ago on a charge of “disorderly conduct (pervert) and on Oct. 7 this year on a charge of “disorderly (indecent gestures).” He forfeited collateral in both cases. The Jenkins development may carry political implications as the presidential campaign heads into its stretch run. Aides traveling with Sen.

Collins of RD I, New Philadelphia, for a non-support charge, scheduled for next Tuesday, was postponed today when Collins filed a divorce suit. Collins charges Mildred M. Collins of 215 Walnut St., Dover, with extreme cruelty and gross neglect. She had lodged the charge of non-support of 3 children and was indicted by the September Grand Jury. Collins has asked the court to void a separation agreement of January 3, 1963, because “he was not represented by an attorney and that his signature was obtained without his full knowledge and comprehension of the statements contained therein.” He also asked the court to determine what is best regarding the interest and welfare of the 8 children. Although the indictment charges Collins with non-support of 2 children, ages 15 and 17, Mrs. Collins’ charge in Northern District Court included a third child, age 16. Bamhouse, Collins had entered an innocent plea to the nonsupport charge at his arraignment Sept. 22. can candidate for president, declined to comment immediately.

Hearing Opens On Trust Suit Common Pleas Judge J. H. Lamneck today began the hearing on the declaratory suit involving 3 trusts in the N. Wr and Myrtle T. Judkins estate. The National City Bank of Cleveland, as trustee, has asked the court for clarification with regard to the rights and legal relations of persons involved in the trust. The problem was created by the adoption of a daughter by Vance T. Judkins and his wife, El va. The 3 trusts had been created, naming only a son, Nathaniel V. Judkins as participating. Because Nathaniel has now reached 21 and certain funds in the trust are available to him, the bank has asked the court to determine the rights and legal siton of the adopted daugh-ter, position of the adopted daughter, Calliope Jean Judkins, with regard to the trust. Clevelander, Canton Man Die In Crash A Cleveland man, being sought by the State Patrol for a hit-skip accident at Mount Eaton, was responsible for Tuscarawas County’s 22nd and 23rd traffic fatalities of 1964 last night, just a half-mile north of the spot where an Akron woman was killed last Friday night.

After a mid - autumn cold snap chilled the noses and nipped the ears of much of the nation for more than a week, pleasant balmy lazy Indian Summer has moved in to make a last ditch stand against the ominous advance of winter. days. The year’s 23 deaths already have equalled the total number recorded during all of 1963. Patrolmen said the auto driven by Rush, traveling north, went left of center and smashed into the May vehicle. Both drivers were killed instantly. The bodies were taken to Union Hospital in Meese and Gordon funeral home ambulances. Hospital authorities said the pair had died of a crushed chest, severe lacerations to the head and face, and a fractured left leg. An hour before the mishap, Wooster state patrolmen had reported the Rush vehicle being involved in a hit-skip accident on Route 250 in Mount Eaton. They reported the auto, in trying to pass a car driven by William Dennis, 45, of New York, had sideswiped the vehicle. New Philadelphia state patrolmen had been notified that See DEATHS, Page 8 'My Fair Lady' Tickets Boom Little Theatre officials said today that tickets are sold out for Saturday night’s performance of “My Fair Lady,” which opened Tuesday.

Gale warnings and a hurricane watch were issued from Charleston, S.C. northward through North Carolina. Isbell was centered about 240 miles east of Brunswick, Ga., and moving straight north at 25 miles an hour. Earlier, it had been moving north-northeast. The hurricane moved into the Atlantic after a fast Florida crossing that spared the state the devastation Isbell brought to Cuba. But she gave birth to tornadoes that injured 39 persons in Florida. At least six and possibly more tornadoes whipped out of the leading edge of the small but vicious storm, demolishing house trailers, unroofing homes and other buildings in several communities. The hurricane went out to sea after passing just north of Palm Beach, famed winter play-See ISBELL, Page 2 Soapers Break Window At Philo Note to Halloweeners: When applying soap or paraffin to the windows, exert only slight pressure. Cleaning the windows in itself is a “panefull” job, but to clean and replace broken glass is even more irritable.
