Dover Daily Reporter (Newspaper) - September 3, 1964, Dover, Ohio Figures Substantiate 'Underpaid' Claims By Local Police, Firemen By Pete Groh Dally Reporter Staff Writer The majority of Dover and New Philadelphia firemen and policemen, as well as other city employes, believe they are underpaid. And, compared with the earnings of city and area persons employed in industry, they are right. While a Dover patrolman or fireman is grossing $4,721 annually, the breadwinner next door is “knocking down” considerably more! As a comparison, the 1963 av-erage income per household was $7,098 in Dover, $6,231 in New Philadelphia and $5,829 for the county as a whole. Even worse off is a New Philadelphia traffic officer or firefighter — whose pay is $200 less or $4,500. Supervisory personnel of either department aren’t much better off. A Dover police captain receives $5,092, while a New Philadelphia captain gets $4,800. The figures are similar for Fire Department captains. Heads of the departments — Police Chiefs Garrison G. Groh and Louis Clark and Fire Chiefs Glenn Heck and Clarence Shill ing — receive an average annual gross income ranging from $5,700 to $6,240. New Philadelphia’s Chief Clark recently questioned: “Who ever heard of a supervisory employe in industry making $475 per month?” Clark, who receives $5,700 annually, oversees 4 deskmen, 12 policemen, and 12 part-time school patrolmen, besides having other duties connected with the department. He even occasionally works on the desk when his shifts are short-handed. Threats of wholesale resignations in both the Dover and New Philadelphia fire and police de partments have been rumored over the past months, but they seem unlikely. For the most part they are family men who need their pay checks — no matter how small —every 2 weeks to pay bills and provide for the needs of their wives and youngsters. Although there is, on occasion, considerable griping and complaining by firemen and policemen, there also is job dedication. Good police and fire protection, without question, are es- See POLICE, FIREMEN, Page 8 Average Weekly Income for Dover, New Philadelphia and Area Police and Fire Departments Deskman Patrolman Fireman .

MEARS PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) — Sen. Barry Goldwater, keynoting his campaign for the White House, promised today to end the draft, keep the peace and halt “the cancerous growth of the federal government.” “I do not intend to be a wartime president,” the Republican presidential nominee declared. And Goldwater said he would keep the peace without the draft. “Republicans will end the draft altogether, and as soon as possible,” he said. “That I promise you.” Goldwater accused President Johnson of using the Selective Service System “for political and social schemes.” Returning to the ancestral home where he launched his two campaigns for the Senate, Coldwater said in a prepared speech:    “The campaign we launch today is dedicated to peace through preparedness, progress through freedom, purpose through constitutional order.” Prescott authorities forecast a crowd of more than 35,000 — more than double the population of this one-time territorial capital in Arizona’s hill country, IOO miles from Phoenix. Rep. William E. Miller of New York, the Republican vice presidential nominee, was to be on hand for Goldwater’s kickoff. Goldwater will return the favor Saturday in Lockport, N.Y. In other opening shots of the Goldwater campaign against President Johnson: The Arizona conservative accused Johnson of using “the outmoded and unfair military draft system for social schemes as well as military objectives.” He said Johnson’s is an administration of “mobs in the street, restrained only by the plea that they wait until after election time to ignite violence once again.” He charged the President follows “the way of unilateral disarmament and appeasement in foreign affairs.” He said the growth of the federal government “must and shall be stopped.” But he added “prudence requires that we proceed slowly and steadily in withdrawing the central government from its many unwarranted interventions in our private economic lives.” Assailing Johnson’s handling of the Selective Service program, Goldwater declared: “Republicans understand that the military forces need trained volunteers who make the military service a career.” “Republicans understand that the purpose of the military forces is not social or political — it is to help keep the peace of the world,” he said. “To use military services for political or social schemes — as this administration does — is to drift closer to war on an ebbing tide of military strength.” Goldwater said the Republican party “is the peace party.” “I promise an administration that will keep the peace,” he added, “and keep faith with freedom at the same time.” He did not speU out his charge that Johnson has used the draft for social and political purposes. But Paul F. Wagner, press secretary, said Goldwater was talking about administration programs aimed at retraining of men rejected in pre-induction draft physicals. Johnson asked Congress on Aug. 14 for $16.7 million to help rehabilitate young men who are rejected by the draft on mental or physical grounds. The president announced last April a study of the draft system, and said that inquiry would consider the possibility of ending Selective Service within a decade. Goldwater said crime and lawlessness has mounted under the Democrats — and he linked that charge to civil rights rioting. He said it is not the function of the federal government to enforce local laws. “But it is a responsibility of the national leadership to make sure that it, and its spokesmen and its supporters do not discourage the enforcement or incite the breaching of these laws,” Goldwater said. Goldwater said Johnson seeks “concentration of power as an announced article of political faith.” Goldwater said he would See GOLDWATER, Page 8 ^Weathervane YESTERDAY High 80    Low    49 THE WEATHER ELSEWHERE High Low Pr. 93 63    ..

It is the result of direct-dialing equipment which is being tested prior to a Sept. 20 announcement of the direct line system. The Daily Reporter this morning was able to direct dial both areas, although some subscribers apparently have experienced difficulties due to the testing. Darrel Cope, district commercial manager, said the premature discovery of the direct-dial hookup will probably make testing and “tuning up” of the equipment difficult. He urged patrons not to attempt to use the system and said “restrictive measures will be taken if testing becomes impossible.” He said announcement of the direct service was planned for Sept. 20 when new telephone books are distributed.

Rader of RD 3, New Philadelphia, placed in the temporary care of their maternal grandparents. A county public health nurse, a welfare caseworker and Juvenile Officer Harry Fisher testified to the unfit living conditions of the 3-room house occupied by the Raders off Old-town Road. Fisher said when he was called to investigate conditions on Aug. 26 there had been no water in the house for 2 weeks, the children and their mother were filthily dressed and the house was filled with stench and filth. Mrs. David Rice, caseworker, who had known of the situation since last February, told Finley today that on her visit Aug. 18 “that house was in as bad a WELCOME TO DOVER SCHOOLS.

York, who rode out to war 47 years ago in a horse-drawn surrey, has returned to his beloved green valley of the Three Forks of the Wolf. President Johnson led tributes from across the nation. The doughboy hero of World War I died Wednesday in Nashville’s Veterans Hospital at the age of 76. succumbing to a urinary tract infection. The funeral, to which President Johnson and other leaders will send representatives or attend, will be at 2 p.m. Saturday at York’s Chapel here on the banks of the Wolf River in the Cumberland Mountains. The President expressed his sorrow Wednesday, saying the Medal of Honor winner “epitomized the gallantry of American fighting men and their sacrifices in behalf of freedom.” Gen. Harold J.

BROWNE SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) — Maj. Gen. Nguyen Khanh again assumed full command of South Viet Nam’s shaky government today. The premier said he had won support of Buddhist leaders who were threatening to renew antigovernment violence unless their demands were met. Khanh’s return to power after a five-day “temporary retirement” at the mountain resort of Dalat was disclosed by a government spokesman following a six-hour emergency Cabinet session. Khanh flew to Saigon from Dalat amid reports that he was demanding full support from all members of the caretaker government that had been led by acting Premier Nguyen Xuan Oanh. “The military has promised Gen. Khanh their complete support. The situation looks much more stabilized today,” the spokesman said. Khanh, 37, was expected to with Nguyen Ton Hoan, leader of the party who resigned Wednesday as vice premier after charging Khanh’s government had no legal standing. “Gen. Khanh plans no reprisals against them,” the spokesman said. Khanh also won an agreement from Buddhist leaders to call off a planned hunger strike and a See KHANH, Page 2 Philo Youngster Gets $4,350 In Court Judgment New Minimum Wage In Effect For 3.6 Million WASHINGTON (AP)-A new federal minimum wage of $1.15 per hour goes into effect today, covering some 3.6 million workers who were brought under federal labor standards in 1961. But the Labor Department estimates the law will bring pay raises to only about half a million of these. The others are already making at least $1.15. The Labor Department figures the pay raises for about 565,000 workers making less than that will increase their annual income by a total of about $115 million — an average of about $200. The hourly increase from $1 primarily affects workers in retail, service and construction trades. Next year, they will step up to the $1.25 minimum that a1- Warren E.
