Associated Press is the world's best news service, as it proves every day. , Ohio, Wednesday, July 5, 1961 Telephone 4-2167 1 CfcNfS Gunman Abducts Girl,14, After Killing Mother, Wounding Friend MOAB. Utah (AP)—- A SWaHhv Ho «rac *an/M<t<vrf in cerinne f>nn/U. anrl cnew? •luiair ... ,t . ,. ._ _ . ^^ • MOAB, tltah (AP)-A swarthy bandit flagged down a car of tourists from Rockville, Conn., on a desert road Tuesday night, shot, robbed and left two people for dead and fled with a teenage girl. Charles Boothroyd, 65, survived. He was reported in serious condition with two bullet wounds in the face. Jeanette Sullivan, 40, was killed. Boothroyd told a doctor that the gunman forced Mrs. Sullivan's daughter, Denise, 14, into his car and sped away. Officers set up road blocks in southeastern Utah and southwestern Colorado, and began a systematic search of roads in the isolated region. Sheriff's officers pieced togeth- er this story: The bandit, described as stocky and dark, had stopped on a little used jeep road near Dead Horse Point State Park, about 28 miles southwest of Moab. Boothroyd and the Sullivans came along and pulled, to a stop when the man flagged them. Boothroyd got out of his car and walked back. The man asked for money and Bootfiroyd refused. The man reached into his car, pulled out a rifle, and began shooting. Boothroyd was hit in the face. He threw up his hands and was shot again. The assailant then shot Mrs. Sullivan in the back of the head and took Boothroyd's and Mrs. Sullivan's wallets. The terrified girl apparently tried to drive off but the victim's vehicle was found a short distance away. It looked as if it. had been run down and rammed by another car. Leonard Brown, an oil drilling operator, said he was about twc miles away from the scene and heard the shots. He telephoned his office in Farmington, N.M., and the alert was relayed to authorities. U. S. Traffic Deaths Reach All - Time High By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Traffic ' 508 Boating 63 Drowning: 204 Miscellaneous 148 Total 923 Traffic deaths climbed to record heights for a Summer holiday during the long Independence Day Weekend. The tally today also showed that the over-all accident toll, including a heavy loss of life on water, reached an all-time mark for any holiday period. Late reports boosted the motor vehicle fatality total beyond the 500 mark. It passed the previous high of 491 set during a four-day observance of Independence Day in 1950. That had been the top mark for any Summer holiday period. And it went far beyond the National Safety Council's advance estimate that 450 Americans might die in traffic accidents during the 102-hour period between 6 p.m. Friday and midnight Tuesday. The previous record for deaths in accidents of various kinds, including traffic, had been established in the four-day celebration of Christmas in 1956. It! was 884. During that same period traffic deaths soared to 706, a standing record for any holiday period. The death rate on the highways slackened late Tuesday. Council officials said the homeward bound traffic was the heaviest in history for the final hours of any holiday. They said the fatality rate dropped from an hourly average of between five and six to about two to three. The council, in a preholiday statement, had estimated a traffic death toll of 450. This year's Fourth of July holiday traffic count, compared to 462 for the recent four-day Memorial Day period, a record for that holiday. In last year's three-day observance of Independence Day traffic deaths totaled 442. Three deaths in fireworks were reported during the count of violent accident deaths from 6 p.m. last Friday to midnight Tuesday, a period of 102 hours. That was the largest total since four died in 1954. For comparative purposes, The Associated Press made a survey of accidents in a non-holiday period of 102 hours, from 6 p.m. Friday June 16 to midnight Tuesday June 20. The count showed: 362 traffic; 33 boating; 80 drown- ings; 99 miscellaneous, a total of 574. 28 Persons Die On Ohio's Roads ON REPORTER CT.

Ohio Holiday Fatals at # Glance Traffic 28 Boating 1 Drownings 8 Miscellaneous 7 Total 44 By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Ohio's traffic death toll over the Fourth of July holiday weekend was among the nation's highest, and the 28 persons killed on the state's highways exceeded the 26 dead predicted by the Ohio Department of Highway Safety. Besides the traffic deaths, 16 other persons perished during the 102-hour long holiday which began at 6 p.m. Friday and closed at midnight Tuesday. The toll included one man who was drowned in a boating accident, eight others who drowned in non-boating mishaps and seven In miscellaneous accidents. Over a sample non-holiday period June 16-20, the death count was 15 traffic, 4 boating deaths, 6 non- boating drownings and 7 miscellaneous fatalities. Over the 78-hour July 4th weekend last year 34 persons were killed on Ohio's roads—the highest * » » state toll for the holiday in recenx years. There were five multiple death traffic crashes. Three of them took the lives of two persons and the other two claimed three lives each. One of the triple-fatalities occurred Tuesday in Montgomery County in which a 23-year-old mother and two of her children died. Among the fatalities: Monday Joannie and Carol ilarless, twins about 3, Springfield, when the car they were in hit the rear of another auto on Ohio 72 about a mile south of Springfield.

REEDY JERUSALEM (AP) — Adolf Eichmann made the startling claim on the witness stand today that he—and not Heinrich Himmler—devised the macabre plan to trade the lives of a million Jews for trucks badly needed by the Nazi armies in 1944. ;' The former Gestapo lieutenant colonel said he conceived the idea in Budapest and chose Jewish leader Yoel Brand tk> fly to Palestine to try to get the Jewish Agency to negotiate with the Western Allies. But Eichmann denied he ever told Brand he would "still the death mills of Auschwitz" or would start them up again if the bargain collapsed, as Brand testified earlier in Eichmann's trial. "I never made such a remark. To still the mills of death or to st'art them up was beyond the realm of my jurisdiction," the defendant declared. Eichmann today told his own story of his role in Hungary, where he is charged with personally supervising the deportation of 600,000 Jews to their doom. He is indicted by Israel as the mainspring of the whole mass slaugh- wartime job as chief of "Jewish affairs" in the Gestapo. Defense counsel Robert Serva- tlus gave Eichmann full rein to describe his Hungarian experience—the chapter of the extermination story that forms a keystone of Israel's case. Eichmann responded with fervor, his hands shaking in excitement. Repeatedly the court had to admonish him to stop so the interpreters could catch up. The defendant's own view of his job in Hungary was in direct contrast to the evidence submitted by Israel. He did admit "helping" to draw up "travel charts and timetables" for mass deportations ordered by Himmler but contended the main responsibility lay with Nazi Ambassador Edmund Vees- enmayer and SS Police Chief Otto Winklemann. Aside from that, Eichmann said he was still an "emigration" officer, even though emigration had been totally banned by that time. He said he had so little to do when he first' got to Budapest in March 1944 that he couldn't even keep his typists busy. With an embarrassed grin, he said his kommando consisted "only" of 15 to 20 persons. Then he laced into a former colleague, SS Col. Kurt Becher, accusing him of negotiating emigration of Jews in exchange for money and equipment in violation of all of Himmler's directives. Circus Is Here For 2 Shows Charles Chamblaw feeds "Jim," one of the circus elephants. The circus is in town!

Hoffa Receives 'Integrity' Vote By NORMAN WALKER MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP)— The Teamsters convention today shouted approval of a resolution affirming belief in the integrity of union president James R. Hoffa despite a series of court charges and accusations against him. The resolution reviewed indictments and charges against Hoffa leveled in Senate investigations. 'Compactness' MILLERSBURG — One of America's compact cars may be too compact after being "compacted" still more Monday afternoon. That thought must be running through the mind of George D. Croskey, 29, of Killbuck. He parked his car atop a hill and went ground - hog hunting. Evidently a strong gust of wind came along and carried it 600 feet down the road. When he returned, he found his compact parked around a tree. 'Cold' Spell Here The holiday weather, like Khrushchev, was threatening but, unlike him, it also was fairly nice for most Fourth of July activities. Tuesday's high of 75 was just right for relaxing, golfing or picnicking. The overnight low was 53 and it was 56 at 7 a.m. today. Monday, the thermometer climbed to 81, a welcome drop from the preceding 4 days of 90 - degree- plus. Monday's low was 50. The Ohio Weather Bureau predicts the mercury will average 6 to 8 degrees below the normal 8384 over the next 5 days. An inch of rain also is forecast as a slight drizzle was recorded this morning. It said that despite all this the delegates expressed confidence in his integrity and "high "devotion to duty." The blanket vote of confidence and "wholehearted approval" of Hoffa's act'ivities was contained in Wio resolution adopted by an overwhelming voice vote. There were no nays. Action on the resolution came after the Teamsters general counsel, Edward Bennett Williams, a noted criminal lawyer, attacked Senate investigators for conducting hearings in a manner, Williams said, that tried to demonstrate guilt by association without regard for basic civil rights. Williams said the proof of the pudding was that a half dozen cases involving Hoffa and oilier officers on the convention platform—court cases where the rights of cross examination and other defenses were protected— all resulted in acquittals. Hoffa, bolstered by the resolution, still faced a convention showdown on a dues hike proposal. Such an increase is distasteful to many delegates and considered possibly illegal by some of his own attorney. The dues issue is regarded as the toughest to ram through the special convention out of a batch of proposals that range from a fat salary boost for Hoffa to a broad extension of his already substantial union control. Hoffa wants a convention vote to require every Teamsters local to boost member duos, no matter what they rnny be now, by $1 a month. Sixty cents of that amount would go to Hoffa's headquarters, boosting the national union's annual revenue to about $20 million from about $8 million now. The difficulty, as pointed out privately by some of Hoffa's own legal experts, is that the Landrum-Griffin law—passed by Con' See HOFFA, Page 2 Around The World J5 Sports 22-23 Goren On Bridge 14 Hospital News 15 Obituaries 2 Television-Radio (> Women's Page 12-13 * Council r Gets Plan S.! For Lights Dover City Council's safety committee now has in its possession a blueprint showing proposed installation points of a White-Way lighting plan for the city business district. Presented by City Engineer W. E. Quicksall Sr. and A. B. Klyne, chief electrician, to City Council Monday night, the blueprint is sufficient enough to provide for an estimate of $114,000 for the renovation. The cost, derived from preliminary information presented by Westinghouse Electric Corp. upon request of city officials, includes $104,000 for poles, fixtures and wiring, and an additional $10,000 for concrete and street paving removal and replacements. Previously, only General Electric had responded with information on fixtures, lamp and pole prices for 3 types of lighting — floures- cent, Mercury and filament with recommendations as to the areas best suited for their respective use. The proposed blueprint calls for new lighting on N, Wooster Avc. from Front to 8th St., on Walnut from Front to W. 4th St., on N. Tuscarawas from Front to W. 5th St., on Broad from W. 3rd to W. 5th St.. on W. 3rd and W. 4th Sts. from Broad to Race Sts., on W. 2nd St. from N. Tuscarawas to Race St., and on Front St. from N. Tuscarawas to the first alley east on N. Wooster Ave. Lights on W. W. 3rd St., N. Wooster Ave. and Broad St., according to the outline, would be placed on opposite sides of the streets at intervals ranging from 120 to 140 feet. All of the other itreets would have lighting at stag- ;ered points ranging from 80 to 95 feel. A battery of lights would illuminate the square area. Woodworker's Garage Shop Is Protested There were no prc-holaday "fireworks" during Dover City Council neeting Monday night. The law- nakcrs moved through a comparatively routine session in an lour, the agenda not having an ordinance discussion for the first ,ime in many months. There was one ordinance change, lowever. Council did unanimously approve a change from Aug. 4, 1961, to July 31, 19G1, as effective date of a new 3-year contract for general boiler and machinery insurance at various locations. The ordinance, passed as an emergency measure 2 weeks ago, authorized an appropriation of $12,)00 from the Light, Water and Sewer funds for payment. Several matters were referred by Council President C. LeMoyne Luthy for committee study, In addition to an outline given It on proposed White-Way lighting rejuvenation for downtown Dover, the safety committee was given a request for a street light at W. 5th St. and N. Tuscarawas Ave., and also a recommendation on possible realignment of safety signs in the Easl-Johnson Avc. area. A letter from Homer E. and Helen E. Len/. of 112 E. 14lh St., who also wore in the audience, voicing opposition to a woodwork- Ing and cabinet-making operation at the George Douds residence at 116 E. 14th St., was referred to the zoning committee. The letter went in part: "Our neighbor, George Douds of 116 E. 14th St., has attached to his residence a large garage containing equipment used for woodworking and cabinet-making; and we have good reason to believe that the same is being operated commercially during the evening hours and is being operated in violation of the zoning ordinances of the City of Dover." The Lenz letter also was accompanied by a letter from a physician which stated Mr. Lenz was under his care. In a statement to Council. Mr. Lcnz said that "the operation is injurious to my health and we would like to see it abolished." Also referred to the zoning com mitteq and to the City Planning Commission was a petition pre sented by Dr, C. R. Crawley ask ing that lots 2273 and 2274 be re zoned from "A" residential to "B 1 business. The lots are located on the Boulevard across from Union See PROTEST, Page 2 6 Draw Fines In Indian Lake Resort Rioting RUSSELLS POINT, Ohio (AP)— Holiday vacationers arc home and officials of this resort' community on the shore of Indian Lake arc cleaning up after a July 4th that had more fireworks than they had planned. The unexpected explosions began shortly after midnight Tuesday when a group of young people began fighting and throwing tables and chairs around in a beer garden. The crowd, which was estimated at between 400 and 1,000, blocked off Ohio 366, the main street in Russells Point. The demonstrations finally ended, at least for the time being, about 2:30 a.m. with the arrival of 20 Ohio highway patrolmen and auxiliaries and a wetting down by local fire department hoses. Seven youths were brought before Mayor Gene Gooding in an unusul night court. Six were fined and released. The seventh, whose name was not disclosed, was jailed. Shortly after noon Tucday, the youths began to assemble again. This time, however, officials were ready. More than 40 patrolmen and auxiliaries, nearly the entire Logan County sheriff's department, local police and the fire department blocked off the highway and closed all business along the main street. The authorities stood their ground, and after about an hour and a half of looking down the nozzles of fire hoses, the over- cxumberant vacationers drifted away and headed for their homes. Mayor Gooding isn't too sure what brought on the disturbance. He said the youths, most of them college students, apparently had been drinking beer, and, when the drinking spots closed for the night, the young people became roudy. "It's just a case of a lot of young fellows with nothing better to do," Gooding said. He added that authorities could find no particular ringleaders and those who were arrested were defying police officers. Russcls Point, on the southern shore of Indian Lake, normally has a population of 1,100, but during vacation time (he population balloons to more than 10,000.

Injuries Received In Beating Fatal To Ohio Teacher COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP> — Charles J. Crawford Jr., 29, a high school teacher of Gibsonburg, Sandusky County, victim of n beating in Athens last Wednesday, died in University Hospital today. Crawford, a Spanish and history teacher, was in Athens attending a conference at Ohio University when he was beaten. Ho had undergone brain surgery at the hospital here. Police said Crawford's car was involved la a minor traffic accident ut an intersection and that occupants of the other car followed Crawford's to a university dormitory.

Waterfront activity increased in nany ports on the Atlantic, Pa- ific and Gulf coasts. Officers and crewmen worked o ready passenger ships, freight- rs and tankers for sailing. The manual labor and the paper •ork began shortly after the ourt order was issued here Monay night under the Taft-Hartley Act. There was no sign of defiance f the court by any of the five triking maritime unions. The order was directed also at 'ther unions, whose members were not on strike but neverthe- css were not working, and at sev- ral employer associations. Deck officers, radio officers and unlicensed deck and engine oom crewmen were ready Tues- ay to sail many ships on the Cast Coast. But the ships generally lacked engineer officers, who arc members of the Marine En- [Ineers Beneficial Association MEBA).

They said the union wants as few uncontracted ships as possible to sail before the court order comes up again for argument in further Taft-Hartley proceedings on Fri. day.
