In Cleveland and a former notre Dame foot Ball Captain and College coach was named by Herbert late yester Day to the Job directing a liquor monopoly which netted Ohio nearly last year. Cofall s appointment was the last of eight Cabinet posts Avail Able to Herbert for appointment. From previous administrations he will inherit the director of health or. Roger heering and the director of education or. Clyde v. Hissong. Governor Lausche yesterday named Harry j. Busz of to Emble Athens county to the mine examining Board for a term expiring sept 10, 1949. Hawley expected to get state Job the appointment of Stanley b. Cofall As state liquor director came As no Surprise to Richland county s Republican leaders although they had endorsed Harry e. Haw Ley former clerk of the county Board of elections for the Post. They had hoped Hawley would receive governor elect Thomas j. Herbert s nod but realized that the naming of Murray d. Shaf Fer former Mansfield service Saf Ety director As state Highway director had minimized Hawley s chances. It is Seldom that two Cabinet appointments Are made from one relatively Small county. Both the Richland county publican executive committee and the gop executive and Central committee chairmen in the eight counties of the state Highway department s division three had endorsed Hawley for the liquor directorship. Ralph m. Hardy chairman of the Richland county Republican executive committee said today Ihal gop leaders Here expect Hawley to be named to some other state Job. By Philip Greene additional Light on the proposal to change 14 Miles of u. S. Route 42 through and South of Mansfield into a expressway was Given by the designer of the project at a meeting of the Richland county Auto club last night. It is designed to halve the time needed to drive through the City. After hearing m. Lichtenwalte designer of the super Highway discuss the project the club directors voted to appoint a county wide committee to mobilize support of plans for traffic Relief in and around Mansfield. Early consideration by the Ohio legislature is expected. Yesterday the associated press said it had Learned from a reliable source that the Mansfield project is part of a 10-year, billion Dollar Highway program which state Highway director Perry t. Ford will submit to the lawmakers next week. Lichtenwalte former design Engineer in division three of the state Highway department with Headquarters at Ashland is the Man who Drew the plans and won approval of them from superiors in his depart ment and from the Federal Public roads administration. His plans Call for a 14-mile stretch of expressway from East of Ashland Hill through the Northern part of the City just North of Orange and sixth streets to an interchange with u. S. Routes 30-n and 30-s West fourth Street and Park Avenue southward parallel to Trimble and Courtney roads and skirting the Western Edge of Lexington to rejoin the present route 42 just South of Lexington. From Ashland Hill to Bowman Street the Road would be elevated. Access Points for City traffic would be provided at five Points Wayne Diamond Bowman and West fourth streets and Park Avenue West state route 13 from the North would be brought into the expressway Over Wayne Street. U. S. Route 30 and state route 39., to the East of the City would connect at a Point West of Ashland Hill. While the Highway would pass Over City streets and the railroads by Means of the elevated Section from Ashland Hill to Bowman Street it would pass under West fourth Street and Park Avenue West in underpasses. This route rather than a possible relocation of route 42 to the Southeast of Mansfield was recommended and planned for Lichtenwalte said. As estimated by Lichtenwalte the proposed free Way through the City would reduce Mansfield s Auto accidents by 50 per cent Cut traffic congestion from 12 to 47 per cent and approximately halve the time necessary for through traffic to pass through the City. The Auto club s meeting was called As an open forum on Mansfield s growing traffic problems and Lichten Walter furnished some illuminating facts on the subject. V we made a traffic count on your principal streets. You have 17 streets which carry More than vehicles per Day which Means they should All be four lanes wide to carry the traffic adequately. Route 42 alone carries an average of vehicles per Day within the he said. A Vire than vehicles enter and leave Mansfield each Day. Of that number about pass through the City without stopping which indicates that the possible Southeast relocation of route 42. Acting As a bypass would not solve your problems. We estimate it would get Only vehicles per Day without the connections with other main arteries furnished by the Northern route. The Southeast route also would not help in crossing the railroads in the Northern part of the City. We surveyed the Crossings at fourth fifth and Orange streets and found in one 24-hour period the fourth Street crossing blocked by trains 118 times for a period of four hours and 20 minutes which halted 728 vehicles. At Orange Street the count was 118 blocks for five hours 39 minutes stopping 706 vehicles and at fifth Street it was 116 blocks for three hours 31 min utes and stopping 815 Lichtenwalte said that Mansfield is not Only located on the grand interstate Highway system of the state and Federal governments but has also been designated by the War department As a strategic City militarily. Now employed As a structural Engineer by Vernon Redding associates Lichtenwalte was design Engineer in division three of the state Highway department until last april. In 1945. When he completed and recommended the Highway he said Cost estimated for the 14-mile project totalled i can t say what the department has done since then but evidently it has revised Cost figures to the level. We estimated that Mansfield s share of the Cost under policies at that time would be be tween and your biggest hurdle locally besides Money is obtain ing a right of Way. We figured then that the tax value of property needed for the right of Way would be approximately he said. P. K. Trautman present location and design Engineer for division three of the state department attended the meeting and said some had already been spent in compiling the preliminary plans. Lewis seeks reversal of col St order l. Lewis and the United mine work ers today asked the supreme court to reverse their contempt conviction in the Coal walk out on the grounds that the decision ignored the Norris la Guardia act and imposed excessive punish ment. A Brief filed with the supreme court by the United cited nine specific Legal errors by Federal District judge t. Alan golds Borough who imposed a Fine of on Lewis and the ump last dec. 3. The Union declared that judge Goldsborough disregarded completely the Plain unequivocal Lan Guage of the Norris la Guardia statute which prohibits the issuance of injunctions by Federal court in labor disputes. Both sides file.
