(AP)—A jet bomber skimmed low over crowded reviewing stand—and then faltered, hit a power pole, and smashed in flaming pieces across the center of a Navy base, killing nine men. Among those who died were the three crewmen of the A3D twin jet bomber. The other six victims were men in buildings near the run way of the El Centro Naval Air Facility, where the plane crashed Tuesday during a parachuting demonstration. Thirty-five persons were injured, six critically. The 70,000-pound jet came apart in the air after one wing snagged the power line. The shower of blazing wreckage scattered 400 yards across buildings and parking lots, setting two major fires, smashing buildings, setting autos afire. Women and children — servicemen’s dependents — were among the victims. “Women were running across the street through the burning Busy Speaking Schedule Set For Dr. Crane Dr. George Crane, whose nationally-syndicated column appears daily in The Reporter, will arrive tonight to “rest up” for a rigorous round of speaking engagements in the area Thursday.

The final report session is scheduled Thursday at noon in UCC. An additional $20,674 was reported by 25 volunteers yesterday, pushing the total of cash and pledges to $58,363, a little over half of the $111,502 needed by the 12 service and welfare agencies. Dragovich, however, remained optimistic that the goal could be reached. Thirteen division chairmen have not made any reports to date. A total of $53,139 is needed to top the goal.

They claim they were “slighted” in the committee’s most recent offer and that “partiality has been shown different departments.” In a letter signed by Dan Judy, president of the Local, the members asked that across-the board raises should be given employes. The proposal made by the finance committee at a meeting Monday night called for approximately a 3 per cent raise for the city’s 140 employes in addition to fringe benefits. Members of other departments, however, have expressed opinions that police and firemen came out on top on the offer.

Several weeks have been spent in preparing for the annual inspection that is intended to put maintenance equipment in top shape to meet the challenge of winter ice and snow. With 132 miles of rural highways in Tuscarawas County to be maintained by 16 trucks with their snow plows and cinder spreaders, maintenance must put faith in the readiness and dependability of their equipment. This means the difference between keeping roads open to traffic and having snow drifts and ice block the highways. Last year, Tuscarawas County forces worked 18,000 man hours on snow and ice control. Much of this was at night under conditions of extreme cold and very little was during pleasant weather. A total of 2,037 tons of salt and calcium were used during the last winter season and 3,700 tons of cinders and grits were spread on state and U.S. highways in the county. The inspection was conducted by maintenance engineers from Columbus and by Division department supervisors. At the same time facilities of the highway garage, which is responsible for maintenance of equipment that is used on the 1,200 miles of state routes in the Division were checked. Department officials feel that Division equipment and personnel are in good order for expected winter snows. Small Return wmmmm rn is* SPAULDING, England (AP)-Jack East, 84, got a birthday present Tuesday from Frank To-hill, landlord of the 300-year-old Pigeon Inn. The present was a barrel of beer. Jack said he had his first drink of beer at the Pigeon Inn on his 19th birthday. “I’ve done my drinking here ever since.” Landlord Tohill commented: “Over the years, Jack has spent about $39,200 on beer. Why, that’s enough to have bought the pub. A present of a barrel of beer is as little as we can do.” Johnson Won t Play War Game' LOS ANGELES, Calif.

Beavers, 28, of 604 Crider Ave. NE, New Philadelphia, is listed as “critical” in Union Hospital today following a one-car mishap early this morning on Route 39, just east of Township Road 314, east of New Philadelphia. Beavers suffered possible back injuries, a fractured left leg, body contusions and abrasions and a possible fractured pelvis. The New Philadelphia man, traveling west on Route 39, went left of center and struck an Ohio Power pole, shearing it off. Leaving the roadway, the vehicle traveled another 534 feet. Sheriff deputies, who invest! gated, found Beavers lying 54 feet from the vehicle, which is believed to have rolled over several times. Investigation is continuing.

The President’s strongest language was prepared for the New Mexico crowd. He said: “The stakes in the election are success and survival. The issues are recklessness or responsibility.” Going on to stress issues which he says find him and Coldwater far apart, Johnson concluded, in his stiffest language: “We cannot and we will not play the war game of bluff and bluster. That risk is too great. Before swinging into the West, Johnson made a quickie tour of the Northeast Tuesday night. In Pittsburgh’s ultra- modern Civic Auditorium, he delivered one of with direct reference to Coldwater: “These are all issues in this campaign, and we are wrapping them right around his neck.” The President later, speaking off the cuff, cited a newspaper advertisement — repudiated by Coldwater — which he said claims that his administration seeks laws that would make Negroes happy, jobwise, and white people glum. “I want to meet that one head on,” he said. “That is pure, dirty racism See WAR GAME, Page ll New Suit Filed Against Dairy By Akron Firm A new suit by Akron Milk Producers Inc. of Akron against the Broad Run Dairy Cooperative Assn.

Jordan, 42, a registered nurse who is president of the 10,000-member Pennsylvania Nurses Association. It is holding its 60th annual convention here this week. Jordan, a native of New Orleans, became a nurse in 1949 after leaving the Army. Now he Is director of the School of Nursing and Nursing Service at Phil adelphia’s Episcopal Hospital. / Most are in administrative work “I think it is a good profession — directors of nursing schools for men,” Jordan said in an or supervising hospital staffs. interview. “It is a good place to serve and make a decent living. “Aftei all, there have been male nurses since the beginning of time. All nurses used to be men. During the Crusades there was a religious order of men who went along to care for the sick and injured.” Jordan, whose wife is a teaching nurse on the University of Pennsylvania faculty, estimates there are 5,000 men among the nation's half million nurses. About being president of the association? “I think they selected me because I could do the work and not because I was a man,” he said. He believes more and more men will get into nursing. Most schools, once all girl, now are coeducational. “Men can help alleviate the current shortage of nurses,” he said. “They tend to stay on the job longer without interruption for marriage and family.” Area 12-Year-Old On Probation In Piggy Bank Theft A 12-year-old RD I, Mineral City, youth was placed on 2 years’ probation today by Juvenile Judge Ralph Finley for theft.

Arthur Limbach of New Philadelphia represented the lad at the hearing. Barry Haps LBJ's Veep Selection By WALTER R. MEARS CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) — Sen. Barry Coldwater said today President Johnson “kidnaped the Democratic party” for eventual delivery to Socialists when he chose Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey as his running mate. The Republican nominee for the White House hammered away at his charge that Johnson is hungry for power, and accused the President of trying to frighten people into voting for him. “I charge,” the Arizona senator said, “that the Johnson machine is driven by lust for power, by fear of the exposure of wrongdoing in high places, by fear of punishment and by hope of special privilege.” Coldwater alternated between defense and attack in a speech prepared for a rally at Cedar Rapids, Iowa. It kicks off a day of Midwestern vote-hunting that will take him also to Oshkosh, Wis., and East St. Louis, 111. Johnson, he said, “has failed to arouse real grass roots support for his candidacy.” Coldwater declared Republicans have that kind support, and said the backing of small newspapers and of “close to one million” small contributors demonstrate it. The senator said of Johnson: “He has the support of many traditional Democrats who accept his party label, without looking beyond it to see that in handpicking Hubert Humphrey as his successor he has kidnaped the Democratic party — tied it up in a neat bundle for eventual delivery to the Amerism VEEP SELECTION, Pg. ll MINERAL CITY - A grass fire here yesterday afternoon, believed started when a local fire warden, was burning off brush, got out of hand and bad ly scorched over 25 acres along Route 8 south of here.
