There, Common Pleas Coutf Judge Warren Young will be asked to decide a labor case which has torn apart the 7000-person, , usually-quiet community. The Issues: Can a new owner accept all assets and liabilities of a company but refuse to negotiate with the existing union? Can he fulfill all other service contracts except the pact between the old company and the union, In this case the United Steelworken On the other side, must the new owner be a slave to another negotiators' bargain? Must he accept economic conditions which may have been financially disasterous to the original owner? It may be of little comfort to Judge Young (Judges prefer to study previous decisions) but Cincinnati labor authorities know of no exact law covering such a case. That's why history and many labor officials and members will be listening when Judge Young opens the case between the United Stcelworkers and Milton Keiner, new owner of the Production Plating Corp., Lebanon's largest employer. Of course, Judge Young's decision will probably echo through other courts between here and Washington as the loser continues the fight. The outcome could affect thousands of other com already built meets Interstate standards. An interstate road, for which the Federal government provides 90 of the funds, has easier grades, safer intersections and enough lanes to meet expected traffic growth for many years. Projections indicate, If all usable land in the county is developed by 1990, that an additional 600,000 persons would have been added to the population. This growth would mean, Messrs. Schneider and Beckman reason, that the cross-county road, as now planned, would soon 'become inadequate. THEY ARE scheduled to be in Washington February 6-8 to represent the County Commission at the Urban County Congress of the National Association of County Officials. When there, if appointments can be arranged, they plan to raise the problems of need for an Inner-belt highway with the Bureau of Public Roads. There are several handicaps under which they will operate. Most formidable Is that it was necessary to adjust the state's interstate mileage allocations to include all of the Circle Freeway last fall. No mileage on the system is available. Others are that plans would have to be redone and the stretch of road already built expanded. Total costs might be Increased by as much as $10 million, although the county's share would A bipartisan exploration of whether a cross-county road north of Cincinnati can be added to the interstate highway system is to be carried to Washington next week. The road, stretching from the Circle Freeway route at Blue Rock Road on the west to the Northeast Expressway route on the east, Is approximately 15 miles long. The two men who now are seeking a hearing by the Bureau of Public Roads are Louis J. Schneider Jr. (R.) and Vincent Beckman (D.), of the Board of Hamilton County Commissioners. The basis of their exploration Is the growth and expected growth in the county's population. The only major construction on the road was conceived about a decade ago as an access link to the Blue Ash airport, then planned as the major commercial airport for Greater Cincinnati. This construction is a half mile stretch between Reading and Ridge Roads. THE AIRPORT went instead to Northern Kentucky. As population increased, the route then was thought of as a cross-county or Inner-belt road. Plans have been developed to extend the construction soon from Ridge Road to Kenwood Road as part of the Federal system which calls for 50 Federal, 25 Ohio and 25 county funds. Neither this section nor the half mile Market Survey On Hall Planned Dwight Lumber Dwight Hinckley, for many years prominent in the business and civic life of the Greater Cincinnati community, died Monday at his home, 1551 Moon Valley Ln., after a short illness.

Mr. panies and workers as mergers and consolidations continue to feature American economics. So the appeals will be made and re-made. HERE ARE the undisputed facts of the case: The USW has represented the 180 Production Plating Works employees since 1952. Their contract was continued without interruption In 1960 when the Huyler Corp. bought the company. But Huyler sold the firm In December to Mr. Keiner, president of the Triton Corp., Indianapolis. The Indiana owner said he must move the plant because of "intolerable labor conditions." He dismissed the 160 workers In mid-December as part of the anticipated transfer. Later, 80 workers were rehired after they agreed to return without representation. The other 80 workers were not asked to return although the company advertised for new workers. The new-worker hiring was stopped January 9 when the union was granted a temporary restraining order by Judge Young. The union also has asked the National Labor Relations Board to investigate and has filed action against the new and old owners of the Production Works, SO THESE ARE the facts. Here are the contentions: The union attorneys last week claimed the new owners had tricked the employees and all of Lebanon with its threat to move. While they talked of moving, the new owners were completing lease arrangements, the union representatives said. While they seemed to be nibbling their lips in indecision, the industrialists were secretly wrapping up all lease arrangements, promising the property owners they would remain in Lebanon until 1970. The leaders attacked the lease arrangements because they felt the threat of moving was the most powerful weapon against their union. They said the 80 workers returned to their Jobs because they felt the company would move from Lebanon if they did not promise to drop the union. Lebanon businessmen and civic officials, worried by the tax loss of the major industry, pressured, the workers to abandon the union, leaders said. Mr. Keiner contended his purchase had not included the labor contract. He said he was not bound by any contract although Huyler officials 6ald the terms would apply to any successor. The firing ji nd re-hiring was necessary, Mr. Keiner said, because many former Production Plating workers were inefficient. "I personally dont care whether they are union members or not," he said. "But I have no plans whatsoever for recognizing." There Is the case. Owner rights, worker rights, union rights, successors rights all will be waiting when Judge Young walks in Tuesday. Is Shield For U.S. Admiral Shinn Says At Navy League Fete-Polaris Extolled Without a Navy that Is "the finest fighting force in the world," Americans might discover that life would be a lot different. That was the appraisal of U. S. might Monday by Rear Adm. Allen M. Shlnn, who addressed a luncheon of the Navy League's Cincinnati Council in the Queen City Club. Admiral Shlnn, a former Annapolis football star, Is assistant chief of plans and programs in the Navy's Bureau of Weapons, Washington. Aided by colored slides, Admiral Shinn ticked off a summary of the basic air weapons the Navy possesses to protect not only the United States but far-flung outposts this country is committed to defend. He described the Polaris missile as "quite a weapon," especially In the armament of a nuclear submarine, because, he pointed out, in this manner it can be almost anywhere in the world in adequate quantity, and that is a sobering thought for any country that might consider attacking the United States. Admiral Shlnn said that the Cuban crisis taught the United States the value of "highly co-ordinated branches of the armed services." He added that Russia, on the other hand, learned how difficult it Is to operate so far from its home base without having control of the seas. Admiral Shinn said that In view of the Navy's need for competent technicians to handle modern weapons, members of the Navy League could help perform a service by persuading competent young men to make the Navy a career.

He said a bill establishing this right would be introduced in the House soon, but said It would not be an administration measure. Mr. Cloud previously had expressed his interest in a bill which would open the Income tax field to school districts, despite opposition from the Ohio Education Association and other groups. "I want to see the bill given some study by a committee to see what they think of the Idea," the Speaker told The Enquirer. REITERATING his opposition to a state income tax, the Logan County legislator said the state historically has left the real estate and property tax fields to the local subdivisions. "I see no reason why this other big tax field should not be left to the local people," he said. He pointed out that under the Ohio Constitution a state income tax would have to be split 50-50 between the state and the municipalities and townships. Thus, a state income tax would not help solve the financial problems of the schools He said the bill to be Introduced would permit either a city or exempted village school to levy an Income tax or would permit local school districts within a county to levy such a tax if all districts within the county follow suit. All such levies would be subject to a vote by the residents of the county or the exempted school districts.

Jeffrey Lazarus Heads Scout Unit Cincinnati will employ a consultant as well as architects to work up plans for the city's new downtown convention-exhibition hall. The consultant will make a "market survey" to determine the size and type of facility needed and also advise a3 to the best location. The architects then will prepare construction plans according to the consultant's specifications. This procedure was approved Monday by Council's Finance and Housing Committee on recommendations of the mayor's convention hall advisory committee headed by J. Reed Hartman. The unanimous Joint committee vote by five members assured favorable action In Council, as they constitute a majority. William C. Wichman, .public works director, has recommended to City Manager C. A. Harrell that Martin Dwyer, Inc., Chicago convention managers, be engaged as the consultants to make the market survey. He also proposed that the Cine innaU architectural firm of Hake it Hake receive the contract as the project's prime architect They would be assisted by two local engineering firms. Mr. Harrell probably will withhold action until Council passes the authorizing ordinance. The consultant's charge will be $39,500 for a study estimated to take three to four months. Mr. Wichman said the architectural firm he recommends will perform its work for 5 of the estimated $8 million construction cost of the convention hall. The voters at the last election authorized issuance of $io million in bonds for the project. In agreeing to recommend the consultant-architect procedure of preparing plans, the joint committees went along with Finance Chairman Eugene Ruehl-man's idea that: The cost of the facility be kept within the $10 million authorized by the voters. The consultant give a very candid report on what it will cost the city annu ally to operate, so that Council will know what it is getting into.' The likely location for the convention hall is the block bounded by Fifth, Sixth, Elm and Plum Streets, but Mr. Wichman said there will be no limitation placed on Dwyer as to site.
