Lottery license a sale' swindle is investigated EAST SPARTA — The Ohio Lottery Commission is investigating an incident reported here Wednesday involving an alleged offer to sell licenses to peddle lottery tickets for $100. The commission was told that someone representing himself to be a commission field representative had called at the J & J Grill and Van's Market. He said he would get them lottery licenses if they would pay $25 down and $75 upon delivery. The man asked for cash. The commission said a similar incident had occurred in Gallipolis. A field representative was told of the incident when he contacted local businesses the next day. A commission spokesman said that as far as it could determine, there had been no violation of law since neither money nor licenses had been exchanged. However, the commission warns merchants to guard against the practice. The fee for a lottery commission license is $10 payable only by check to the Ohio Lottery Commission. The agency hopes to have identification cards with photographs ready for use Monday by field representatives. Mental patient ordered to trial for 1936 murder VAN WERT, Ohio (AP)- County officials say Loris Longanecker, declared sane after 38 years in state mental hospital, will be prosecuted for a 1936 killing. Probate Court Judge Eugene McNeil said Longanecker will be tried on a murder charge in the death of Mrs. Mary Jane Woodruff. Longanecker was committed to the Lima State Hospital two days after the woman's death. Dr. Paul Watkin, hospital supervisor, said a staff board of hospital doctors recently determined that Longanecker now is "sane enough to stand trial for murder." Dr Watkin said he has sent a letter to the probate court notifying them that the 67-year-old Longanecker can be picked up by sheriff's deputies and taken to jail. "I won't say how long its been since I sent the letter out, but it has been longer than the usual few days it should take them to answer," Watkin "I guess it's because this sort of thing doesn't happen too often," he said. .

Nationwide Bell strike appears near WASHINGTON (AP) - Telephone worker:? have given union leaders overwhelming approval to call a nationwide strike against the Bell System. No date was set but Indications are that a strike could come as early as Monday if negotiators fail to' reach agreement on new contracts for 750,000 workers. In event of a strike, Bell said it expects to maintain service with management personnel. Most of the nation's telephone system is automated and a walkout would have little effect on daily service. Bell ordered its top negotiators back to Washington in preparation for weekend bargaining sessions and sources indicated the company was likely to offer a new proposal before a scheduled Sunday meeting of the CWA's executive council. The council has authority to set a strike date. Contracts covering Bell employes expired July 17 and were extended on a daily basis with 48 hours notice required for termination. Union leaders called for the strike vote July 18 after rejecting a company proposal for a three-year contract providing first-year wage hikes ranging from 6.5 to 10 per cent. Increases of 3.3 per cent were offered in the second and third year of the contract in addition to raises tied to increases in the cost of living, Turks violate cease-fire with advances By The Associated Press Turkish troops on Cyprus have seized two more towns in violation of the new cease-fire agreement, the United Nations reported, but one of the Turkish invasion commanders said he expected the accord to take hold today. Although the agreement prohibits territorial expansion beyond the lines held when it was signed Tuesday night in Geneva, a U. N. spokesman in Cyprus said Turkish tanks and naval guns on Wednesday shelled Karavas and Lapithos, seven and nine miles west of Kyrenia, forcing the Greek Cypriot National Guard to abandon the towns. The Greek Cypriot foreign minister, Dimis Demetriou, said his government had protested to the United Nations, the United States, Greece and Britain. He said President Glafcos Cle- rides had issued "strict orders to Greek Cypriot national guardsmen to observe the cease-fire," and he indicated that they were told to retreat rather than resist Turkish advances. Tha TIMES-REPORTER A C Thur*.,Auo.t,1974 A"0 DOVER NEW PHILADELPHIA. OHIO Public apology is part of penalty for 2 teen girls who burned flag EAST LIVERPOOL, Ohio (AP) — Two teenage girls have been ordered by a juvenile court judge to run advertisements in a newspaper reading: "we publicly apologize and declare that we love our country." The ad is only part of the penalty Judge Guy Mauro imposed on the 15 and 16-year-old East Liverpool girls who burned a small American flag earlier this month on a city street. Judge Mauro said he ordered the apology "to impress upon the girls and minors generally that the American flag is something to be respected and not spit upon. He also ordered the girls to attend Reunited brothers reminisce KINGS MILLS, Ohio (AP) - John and Earl Carter, who were separated 18 years ago and hadn't seen each other since, spent a day Wednesday reminiscing about how they each had spent almost half their lives. John, 40, came from Indianapolis with his wife, Linda, and two children. Earl, 32, brought his wife, Beverly, who is expecting their first child, from Middletown, Ohio. The meeting had been scheduled for 10 a.m. but John forgot about an hour's difference in time zones between Ohio and Indiana and arrived about 11:30. "Are you looking for someone from Indianapolis?" John asked as he led his family almost directly to Earl. "They should have wore name tags," Linda said. The two looked much the same physically and were dressed in similar shirts and nearly-identical plaid pants. Earl had been raised by an uncle and aunt in the small city of Trenton, which is near Middletown. ers decided on the phone to meet at Kings Island Amusement Park because John had brought his family there once before. "The last tiifie we saw each other was Easter Sunday, 1956," John said. "I had graduated from high school and outfitted Earl for Easter. Then I went out looking for work." Earl is employed as a painter in Middletown and John is a quality control manager for an engineering company in Indianapolis. John said they have one sister living somewhere in Kentucky. He has been in contact with two sisters and nlans to transfer Longanecker one brother living near Indianapolis, an the hospital to the county jail but that he couldn't get in touch with next week. . "All the people involved in the case in 1W8 are dead now," the deputy said. "There doesn't seem to be much evidence left."

LBJ aide says he fabricated story of price support to keep milk job WASHINGTON (AP) In a memorandum which he has now repudiated, Lyndon B, Johnson's former appointments secretary claimed he got a $40,000-a-year job from the milk producers by talking the late president into a lame-duck decision on milk price supports. The former aide, James , R. Jones, now a Democratic congressman from Tulsa, Okla., said in the memo that he helped pressure the Agriculture Department into recommending the price support action, then talked Johnson into approving It. Now Jones says there was no White House pressure and that Johnson was not involved. He said he fabricated the story in an attempt to keep the milk producers' job. However, a new management fired him as a public relations consultant in early 1972. The memo was placed in the Senate Watergate committee's open files despite a request from Jones' lawyer to suppress it as inaccurate. It refers to an announcement by then-Agriculture Secretary Orvillc Freeman on Dec. 26, 1968, that continued the level of milk price supports at $4.28 per hundredweight through the first year of the Nixon administration. Freeman made the announcement less than a month before the new Republican administration took office, months before the normal annual decision on price supports. Jones wrote the memo to George Mehren, the new general manager of Associated Milk Producers, Inc.. on Jan. 18, 1972. Mehren had just taken over the co-op and had fired Jones and many other consultants in a general economy move. Tones protested, and said he had been given the $40,OOU-a-year retainer for five years by Mehrcn's predecessors, Harold Nelson and David Parr. He said that after Nixon was elected, Nelson and Parr "were anxious to get President Johnson to approve price supports at $4.28 ... They offered me a retainer with AMPI. I declined to talk about it and said I didn't want to consider any offers until we were nearly out of office. "... We got the Agriculture Department (over some pretty stiff feet dragging) to send the price support recommendation over around Dec. 18. The President refused to sign it. Finally, after two conversations with him (by me) he did sign." Then Jones nailed down the job, the memo said. In an interview, Jones said the whole story was a fabrication. "I puffed it," he said. "I'm not proud of it, but that's what I did." He denied that he had talked to Johnson about price supports, and denied that tie pressured the Agriculture Department into making the early announcement. Freeman was unavailable for comment. But Jones' story is backed up by John A. Schnittker, then under secretary of agriculture. Schnittker, in an interview, said that Freeman decided to announce price supports early to keep the incoming Nixon administration from lowering them. He said he knew of no pressure from the White House and that so far as he knows, Johnson wasn't involved. Also, Jones had dropped the LBJ story eight days after he wrote the memo. In a letter to Mehren dated Jan. 26, 1972. he said he had just recovered from a "devastating bout with the flu." He said he hadn't meant for the earlier memo to be sent. the raising and lowering of the city hall flag each day until school starts. The girls must observe a curfew for the next six months and have been forbidden to contact each other by phone, letter or in person for the next year, the judge added. Mauro said the girls apparently got the flag from a local bank that was passing them out just before the Fourth of July to celebrate the bank's 100th anniversary. He said the girls claimed they burned the flag because it had dropped on the ground. "The court didn't buy that," he added. Reynolds knew a telephone operator who called Indianapolis, only to discover that there were 23 Carter's in the directory. The second number was the correct one. "It was just fate that we could meet Earl," John said. Earl said he felt that the I'/z hour wait was almost longer than the entire 18 year separation. "You both should have sent pictures or given descriptions on the phone," Beverly said when it became apparent the other brother would be delayed. John and Earl said they plan to spend some time together to get reacquainted again. CRISIS HELP About people.
