Work Studies Never Cease For Forestry Firefighters
By TOM PARKER Daily Reporter Staff Writer
Work in the huge area forestry district, whose headquarters are in New Philadelphia, continues on through the winter, it was learned Saturday.
Fifteen volunteer forest and grass-fire fighters attended the final class of the year to learn how to best protect homes, forests, wildlife and human lives in a large swath of Ohio—and at their own expense.
The Saturday class, on tactics of fighting forest and grass fires, was preceded by 3 others—an orientation, one on the care, maintenance and operation of the heavy equipment used in fighting fires, and another on the use of hand tools in firefighting.
“One thing people don’t understand about us,” District Forester Jim Lenox said, “is that we are not like a local fire department—we don’t sit around playing pinochle when there isn’t a fire going. We work perhaps not as long hours as in the forest fire season but we do work on equipment, training and planning. . . .”
During last year’s drought, Lenox and his assistants, along with tile volunteers, spent as high as 48 hours straight fighting for-
Philharmonic Summer Camp Plans Stymied
Tile executive board of the Tuscarawas County Philharmonic Society reported today that plans for the continuance of the Philharmonic Fine Arts Summer Camp at Camp Muskingum, Leesville Lake, have been abandoned temporarily.
Basing its decision on financial problems besetting the camp’s management in past years, the board added that a thorough study of camp economy, organization and future course offerings would have to be made before reopening the week - long, popular summer arts workshop. The camp has been operating at a substantial loss in revenue for the last few summers.
James Baker, Philharmonic Society president, stated that he was very optimistic about the future of the camp, and hoped that details might be worked out to schedule it in June, 1965.
est or grass fires. The season was so dry and the countryside was such a tinterbox that often they had 3 or 4 fires going at one time. Two fire-spotting aircraft were in the air constantly.
This forestry division runs south from Columbiana to Licking County and encompasses 9 counties and portions of 13 others.
“The classes we’ve had,” Len
ox continued, “has been for the volunteers—men with no technical firefighting training.
“Normally, there would have been 5 classes, the last one a field training problem, simulating a fire, but these volunteers fought actual fires last season. They’ve had the field experience.

CONCORD. N.H. (AP) - A cloud of indecision which could have a telling effect on the choice of the Republican presidential nominee hung heavily today over the outcome of Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary.
There was widespread evidence that a significant number of Republicans who will go to the polls Tuesday to mark one of the more complex ballots in presidential preference primary history still are debating their choice.

Inner Ear Injury Could Be Troublesome For Glenn

COLUMBUS — Astronaut John H. Glenn Jr. is not seripusly ill but neither is his prognosis as optimistic as his aides now claim.
This Is the judgment made bv a Columbus physician, formerly a resident neuro-surgeon who has contacts in Grant Hospital where Glenn was taken after suffering a fall in his apartment.
The same source accurately diagnosed Glenn’s real medical problem even before confirmation was given by Air Force Col. Earl Brannon Jr., Glenn’s personal physician in Texas. The Columbus physician js also a personal friend of Brennon, who is native of Zanesville.
The Columbus doctor said Glenn obviously is suffering' from a more than usual injury to the vestibular, or inner ear, area.
At first Glenn’s symptoms were those usually associated with any head injury—headaches and drowsiness. The usual concern at this stage is that the bleeding of tiny capularies in the
brain may build up, a condition that Ben Casey fans may recognize as subdural hematomia.
But Glenn’s major problem was reported to be an inability to stand for any length of time without becoming dizzy. This condition is not normally associated with a simple concussion, at least not for the length of time Glenn has been complaining of the symptoms.
Extreme subdural hematomia may result in symptoms very similar to those of a stroke—a limiting of the motor movements

Predidions Are Few On CR Outcome
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate begins its historic civil rights debate today with few members willing to predict how or when it will end.
The 10-point measure, which cleared the House 290-130 four weeks ago and has President Johnson’s firm support, represents a broad attempt to advance the rights of Negroes.
Democratic leader Mike Mansfield of Montana will make the first move soon after the Senate convenes with a simple motion to consider the bill.
The motion is debatable and Southerners have said they will be ready to debate it, perhaps for longer than a week.
This raises the possibility of a double filibuster—on the motion to take up the bill and then on the, bill itself.

judging from conversation, 6 or 7 members of the Dover Police Department are job hunting. More money apparently isn’t the main reason. The air hasn’t completely cleared since that Civil Service examination controversy.
A special paneling was installed Saturday in Common Pleas Judge Raymond Rice’s courtroom to shield the shapely limbs ol the lady court stenographers. No complaints had been heard but rules of court are that all parties involved (including sometimes - sleepy bailiffs) in court matters must maintain concentration on evidence being presented.
Diners in Hotel Reeves Friday night were somewhat taken aback when they w'cnt outside to find out why New Philadelphia fire trucks had sirened their way into Ashwood Lane. They discovered there was a fire in the hotel kitchen.

Clearance sales at The Linn-Hert Furniture store in New Philadelphia are no
advertising gimmick. The store, within the next 2 or 3 months, will have converted into a specialty firm, dealing only with Colonial and American Provincial style merchandise.
The Linn-Hert Furniture Co. at 159 IO. High St., New Philadelphia, again is taking a giant stride forward to maintain its position among the outstanding retail furniture firms in Tuscarawas County.
The January-February clearance sale just ended was not an advertising gimmick for the store, the oldest of its kind in the county. And special sales and price-slashing deals to be offered in the next 2 or 3 months are meant to clear at least 3 floors of merchandise for a definite purpose.
After 118 years of constant emphasis on the sale of a wide range of the finest high-styled furniture, the Linn-Hert Co. will now specialize in Colonial and American Provincial styles.
