Dover Daily Reporter (Newspaper) - September 24, 1964, Dover, Ohio BeldenPlans New $3 Million Plant At Sugarcreek 1 Construction of a $3 million manufacturing plant will be started by Belden Brick Co. at Sugarcreek next March. Located near its plant on County Road 73 leading to Sugarcreek Golf Course and in an area being industrialized, the new operation will utilize new and different techniques and equipment in the production of a unique face brick.. Officials said the project still is in the designing stage and that the architect and general contractor have not yet been selected. Unexpected discovery of a 4-foot vein of coal covering IO or 12 of the 30 acres in the site has delayed construction, which was scheduled to start this fall. The coal will be removed by spring. Gary Finzer, superintendent of Plant No. 3, today said “we are studying several plans and con- Construction Work Due Next March ducting experiments in production of the new products.” Finzer said the new plant will produce 3 major items, one of] which definitely has been decided upon. It will be a “soft mud” face brick simulating the hand-produced type used in Colonial times and often referred to as “Williamsburg brick.” “There is a definite need and demand for this type of brick because people are seeking uniqueness and character in building materials,” Finzer explained. “It also will help counteract the oversupply of conventionally-produced tunnel kiln brick.” The superintendent said European and early American techniques were studied prior to settling on plans for the plant. Changes in technique were necessary because our No. I objective is to learn how to automate a previously hand-produced line.” Burke Wentz, general superintendent of Belden, is in charge of the project with Supt. Finzer and Engineer Howard Finzer in charge of design. No potential employment estimate has been made but the plant will increase the Caraway School District valuation about one-fifth in addition to See BELDEN, Page 2 The Daily Reporter VOL. 61.

(AP)—Frightened people scurried from their homes early today as fingers of flamie from a raging brushfire moved into the outskirts of this besieged town.

Contrary to earlier reports, The Daily Reporter cameraman didn’t stick around to see whether Faith and Donald Hochstetler, children of Mr. and Mrs. Ivan Hochstetler of 417 W. 8th St.r Dover, got up enough nerve to ride the “Bubble Bounce,” one of several new rides offered this year at the Fair.

In discharging this duty, the seven have interrogated hundreds of witnesses in secret hearings, studied thousands of investigation reports, traced Oswald’s movements abroad, re-enacted the killing and compiled some 20 volumes of testimony, depositions and exhibits.
