Ohio Plant fire idles GM plant LORDSTOWN, Ohio (AP) The General ;,Motors Corp. van 'assembly plant and '1,600 workers will be 'idle until Friday because of a paint fire, officials say. Two shifts of 800 ' workers each will not be I paid for the down time, said GM spokesman Don Weber. "I don't know exactly what the provisions are," he said. "I would think this would be an act of God and I think the contract provides for an act of God. We hope to be back with the first shift Friday." No one was hurt Monday when the blaze broke out about 9 a.m. in a second-floor paint booth. The fire was controlled less than two hours later, said David Perrone, GM spokesman at the plant. "Firefighters from at least five area depart ments battled the fire. About 100 workers, including eight to 10 in the booth, were evacuated immediately, Perrone said. Weber said a malfunction in auto spray equipment caused the fire. No damage estimate was made. Tuesday, March 1, 1,983, The News-Messenger, Fremont, O. 15 Strike cripples city services NEWARK, Ohio (AP) - This central Ohio city of 39,000 depended on sheriff's deputies and neighboring fire departments for protection today after police, firefighters and other city employees went on strike in a wage dispute. Police Chief Robert Post, who was manning the police station along with a captain early today, said Licking County Sheriff Gerry Billy told him the Sheriff's Department would try to protect the city. The sheriff has 30 deputies to protect the county's 150,000 residents. "Pickets are outside right now and it would be hard for us to get out of our parking area," Post said. "I fully understand how they feel, but I cannot condone the strike." Fire Chief Clarence Huston said three probationary firefighters were working with him. He said three of the city's four fire stations were closed. The city has agreements with neighboring fire departments to protect the city, but ne said he did not know if the agreements would be honored in a strike. Newark's residents have private garbage pickup service. Non-uniformed workers in the dispute work in the health, water, sewer, street or parks and recreation departments or as City Hall clerks. Five of the city's 10 council members met informally with union leaders late Monday night after the strike began at about 9 p.m. oledo stockbroker center of investigation - TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - He was bright, ambitious, interested in a variety of pursuits and a tireless worker. That's how his friends and former business associates characterize Edward P. Wolfram, the Toledo stockbroker who is at the center of a swirl of ; investigations trying to find out what happened to $36 million in collateral missing from six accounts he supervised. The status of the accounts, which his wife owned, ', led to the collapse of the Bell & Beckwith brokerage firm earlier this month in a scandal that rocked regional financial circles. ; Wolfram resigned as managing partner of the 85-' year-old company and signed over his personal assets and those of his wife, Zula, to a court-appointed trustee overseeing liquidation of the firm. Mrs. Wolfram owned the six accounts where the collateral turned up absent. The company was closed on Feb. 7 by federal investigators who found the shortage. About 7,500 Bell & Beckwith customers are waiting to learn the status of their cash and security accounts, but few were critical of Wolfram despite the swift demise of the 85-year-old firm. His friends and former associates call Wolfram "generous, hard-working, bright" and "ambitious." One former customer said, "If Ted Wolfram called me tomorrow and told me he was with another brokerage, I'd give him my business." Until their financial empire began to collapse three weeks ago, the Wolframs split their time between Toledo and a Las Vegas, Nev., hotel and casino complex they controlled. They owned a horse farm in Ocala, Fla., that produced some high-quality racing stock. They also owned a land and cattle company and two oil-exploration companies. The couple had two airplanes, including a $2 million Cessna jet that was delivered a month before the Bell & Beckwith insolvency was found. Mrs. Wolfram ran a Las Vegas show-production company called Zula Productions. Her last show, "Spellcaster," was playing at her hotel, the Landmark, on the weekend that a dozen New York Stock Exchange and federal securities investigators shut the brokerage. Wolfram was a major contributor to athletic and academic programs at Bowling Green State University, his alma mater. In 1977, he was presented a speicial award during a football game there. He is remembered as a bright student. "He had one of the fastest minds I've ever seen," said one fraternity brother. Former Toledo businessman Edward Lamb, who now is an official of the Nevada National Bank, said he helped the Wolframs finance the initial down payment of $2.5 million for purchase of the Landmark complex.
