TC Wednesday, August 7, 1991 II IF CINCINNATI I NQl IK IK MetroF-5 Obituaries Arthur B. Howes, Owensville He turned radio hobby into successful electronics business BY ANTHONY NEELY The Cincinnati Enquirer As a teen-ager in the 1920s, Arthur B. Howes used rolled-oats cartons, wire and a few other gadgets to make crystal radio sets for neighbors. It was the beginning of a lifetime of adventure and public service in the electronics industry. Mr. Howes, who lived in Owensville in Clermont County, died of pneumonia Monday at Clermont Mercy Hospital in Batavia. He was 82. Mr. Howes, a Cincinnati native and Withrow High School graduate, became a self-taught electronics expert. He was president of Mobilcomm Inc., a service company for two-way radio systems, from 1957 to 1976, when he retired. Mobilcomm once installed intercom systems in the bullet-proof limousines of U.S. presidents. Mr. Howes, who loved fishing and rose gardening, was mild-mannered almost to a fault, said his brother, Cyril Howes of Anderson Township. He so stringently avoided arguments that "he never had an enemy," his brother said. "He was a kind, gentle, caring person," said his daughter, Mary Lee Hassan of Owensville. "That was the kind of thing that was said to me all of my life . . . The kind of honesty and genuine human compassion he had isn't found very often these days." Mr. Howes once took his daughter on a late-night drive to return a handful of change to a customer's home. He sometimes did repair work at no charge when customers couldn't afford to pay, and each year he would volunteer to install public address systems for church festivals, his daughter said. Mr. Howes aggressively tackled radio technology when it budded in the 1920s. He was a young teen-ager when he learned radio basics, most likely from a magazine, his brother said. Arthur B. Howes He turned his hobby into a business in 1927, opening a radio repair shop at Brownway and Robertson avenues. He moved the shop twice before opening Howes Sales & Service at Madison Road and Gilmore Avenue in Oakley, in 1936. During World War II, Mr. Howes repaired radar for the military in Dayton. After the war, Mr. Howes and his brother formed a partnership to sell and repair radios and televisions. They later founded Mobilcomm Inc. and Cincinnati Radio Telephone Systems Inc., which provided a transmission center for early car telephones. The firms later merged with two others to form Combined Technology Inc., of New Burlington. Also surviving are two grandchildren. Visitation will be from 9-10 a.m. Thursday at Craver-Hookom Funeral Home, 529 Main St., Mil-ford. Services will follow at 10:15 a.m., at the funeral home. Burial will be in St. Mary Cemetery, 701 E. Ross Ave., St. Bernard. John M. McCaslin Jr. BY JOHN HOPKINS The Cincinnati Enquirer Long before John M. McCaslin Jr. became a highly respected Cincinnati lawyer, he gained acclaim as an Army Air Corps pilot in World War II. "He was a highly decorated pilot," said Robert Imbus, a fellow lawyer who worked with McCaslin for 25 years in the Cincinnati law firm of McCaslin, Imbus & McCaslin. "I think he flew 29 missions over Europe." Mr. McCaslin, 71, a native of College Hill, died Monday at Maple Knoll Retirement Home, Glendale. His son, John McCaslin III, Glendale, said Mr. McCaslin flew bomber missions out of England. He received the Distinguished Flying Cross, his son said. In the legal profession, Mr. McCaslin specialized in civil trial law and represented Queen City Metro in many cases. He retired in January. His colleagues found him difficult to describe. "He was highly respected in the legal profession, reserved, with a dry sense of humor. I guess I really don't know which adjectives to use," Imbus said. Mr. McCaslin attended Princeton University from 1939 to 1942, then served in World War II. After his term of duty ended, he went to law school, attending both Columbia University and the University of Cincinnati, said his wife, Althea. He graduated from the University of Cincinnati 1948. Althea McCaslin, a Glendale resident, talked fondly of her husband as a lawyer, but more so as an outstanding athlete, husband and father. The two were married for 43 years. "He was a very fine golfer and tennis player," she said. "He was also very fond of all his grandchildren, loved athletics, reading and his family." His son, John, remembers him as a tenacious competitor and a very hard worker, devoted to providing for his family. In addition to his wife, oldest daughter and son,' John, he is survived by his mother, Susan B. McCaslin of Springdale; sons Robert B. of Fort Thomas, Ky., and Hugh F. McCaslin of Burlington, Vt.; and 11 grandchildren. There will be no visitation. A funeral service is scheduled at 10 a.m. Monday at Christ Church in Glendale. Entombment will be at the Graceland Cemetery in Sidney, Ohio. Memorials can be sent to the American Cancer Society. Covington officer charged with rape Policeman to be in court today BY SMITA MADAN PAUL The Cincinnati Enquirer A Covington police officer who faces a long list of misconduct charges was arrested Tuesday and charged with raping a 17-year-old Covington girl. Officer Donald W. Roberts, 24,of the 100 block of Man of War Circle in Alexandria, was arrested at 11:30 a.m. at the corner of Second and Court streets in Covington by the Kentucky State Police. He was off duty. A crimi- Roberts nal complaint was filed in Campbell County District Court on Aug. 2, and a warrant for Roberts' arrest was issued Tuesday morning. Roberts was taken to the Campbell County Detention Center and later was released on a $2,000 cash bond. He could not be reached for comment. He is to be formally charged with rape today at 9 a.m. in Campbell District Court. The girl's mother said she and her daughter reported an assault to the Kentucky State Police, who referred it to Campbell County for prosecution. The Enquher does not name victims in rape cases State Police Lt. Terry Evans said Covington Police Chief Jo seph Rieskamp asked the state police to handle the investigation. Rieskamp may not have been informed that the arrest warrant for Roberts was issued Tuesday morning, said Gary Linn, Covington Police Department spokesman. "1 really don't know if he was informed or not (by state police). It's their investigation," Linn said. Rieskamp could not be reached for comment. Misconduct charges filed Roberts was suspended without pay at 2 p.m. Tuesday for allegedly violating department regulations in a series of earlier incidents, Linn said. Roberts has a troubled history with the department, starting shortly after he was liired in June, 1989. Rieskamp has filed 21 violations against Roberts in 10 incidents, beginning Feb. 13, 1990. On that date, after an off-duty car accident, Roberts allegedly followed the other driver home, drew his weapon and pointed it at the person. Roberts also is accused of being drunk and fighting with an Ohio police officer while off duty March 2, 1991. He also faces numerous charges of insubordination, misconduct, failing to respond to police calls and reckless driving. The administrative charges were filed with the Covington city clerk July 19. Rieskamp recommended then that Roberts be dismissed. Sanders CONTINl'KI) FROM PACK F 1 for changes. "He absolutely wants systemic change," Kearns said Tuesday in Cincinnati. "If he sees the need for change, he'll go after it, but it will be all-inclusive. He's a reach-out person." Ted Glaub, a spokesman for the Illinois School Boards Association, said Sanders was a "consensus builder" who .was "very effective 4 in working with the legislature" in lobbying through a 1985 public education reform package. "I'm terribly jealous of Ohio," said Lee Betterman, president of the Illinois Education Association, that state's largest public school teacher's union. "I wish we had him back in Illinois. Betterman praised Sanders, who declines interviews about the OhioJob until he accepts it, for his Democrats: Vehr's drive could be flawed BY HOWARD WILKINSON The Cincinnati Enquirer Some Cincinnati Democrats say there may be legal problems with Councilman Nick Vehr's proposed charter amendment to limit the time council members spend in office. Lawyer Donald Mooney, labor leader V. Daniel Radford and Democratic council candidate Rick Buchanan asked council's law committee Tuesday to have the city solicitor's office research questions about the amendment before putting it on the November ballot. Vehr, a Republican, told the Democrats that they should save their fight against term limitation for the fall campaign and not try to prevent it from reaching the ballot. "This is the purest form of democracy in action there is," Vehr said of the petition drive. Vehr's proposal would limit council members to four consecutive two-year terms. They would have to sit out for two years before running again. The Democrats argued that because many of Vehr's petition circulators lived outside the city, the petitions might violate the Ohio Constitution, which says that such a petition should come from "the electors of the municipality." Robert Johnstone, assistant city solicitor, said city lawyers have found no problem with petition circulators who live outside the city. If Vehr's charter amendment is on the ballot and is approved by voters, four council veterans could be prohibited from running again in 1993 Mayor David Mann, Vice Mayor Peter Strauss, and Council-men John Mirlisena and Guy Guck-enberger. opposition to public aid to private schools, his continued efforts mostly unsuccessful to push through a tax increase for public schools and his strong support of early-childhood education. "He worked very closely with teachers. You knew he was always listening. He was never abrasive. He was a very strong leader here," addnd Betterman. Death Notices ALBKKS Virginia M.
