Metuchen to Consider METUCJIEN The Borough Council will consider the purchase of the Edgar Clay Building for $135,000 as a possible remedy for overcrowded municipal facilities. In a letter to the council last night, W. K. Timpson & Co., representing Eugene Enterprises, offered the building on the northeast corner of Station Place and Pennsylvania Avenue on a contract basis requiring a down payment and subsequent installments. This method of purchase would not disturb the present capital expenditure figure. To Bt Studied The offer was referred to a council-as-a-whole for further consideration. The letter stated the building would fulfill demonstrated needs for additional municipal building facilities. The borough had hoped the New Street urban renewal area would be the site for a proposed central post office for both the borough and Edison. Tentative plans then called for acquiring the old post office building on Main Street for the police station or other municipal department. Now that Edison will be the site for the centralized post office, the borough's hope for acquiring another municipal building cheaply has all but disappeared. Just about every municipal facility has outgrown itself since 1959, according to a 33-page report entitled "Public Building Needs," compiled and released last August by Candeub, Fleissig and Associates, Newark. Approvt Reports In oither developments, the council approved Assessment Commission reports for improvements on Barnstable Street, Grove Avenue, Oak Avenue, Forrest Street and Victory on Roosevelt Courts. Because of property owner protests, the council held for further consideration reports on assessments for the Middlesex Avenue-Jesmond Road sanitary sewer and the Talmage Road THE RARITAN VALLEY'S LEADING NEWSPAPER Edison Seniors Win Race With Rain EDISON Rain was an unwanted guest, but did not act as a complete damper for last night's graduation of 516 Edison High School seniors. A total of 1,700 parents, friends and guests of the graduates nearly filled the stands of the new Matthew Drwal Me morial Stadium by the time that 5th annua! commencement ceremonies started at 6:30 p. m. Rain crashed the affair a little after 7 p. m. but by then all the diplomas had been distrubut-ed by Samuel D. White, president of the Board of Education. School officials cut short the program by dropping the selections, "No Man is an Island," by the high school chorus, and an American Folk Rhapsody by the high school band. Three of the highest-ranking members of the graduating class were able to discuss the role the state has played in the development of America. They included Judith Jcbbins, speaking on "New Jersey: Unique Among 50"; Diane Mclntyre, "New Jersey! A Proud Heritage"; and Kathleen Mizenk", "New Jersey: A Look Ahead." Both School Supt. Joseph M. Ruggieri and White also spoke. White urged the graduates to obtain all the additional education they can in subsequent years. The Rev. S. Wade Stewart, pastor of the Stelton Baptist Church, offered the invocation. The welcome address was given by Gayleatha Brown, president of the senior class. The nigh school chorus sand "Alleluia," followed by the three talks on New Jersey. After other ceremonies, White then presented diplomas to the following seniors: 12-1: Otis H.

Patricia Curry, State Contends Radio Did Not Sway Jury From Yesterday's Late Edition TRENTON AP The state contended today that a radio broadcast of the 1963 World Series did not influence a jury in convicting County Medical Examiner Dr. Dominick T. Russo on charges of conspiring to commit abortion. Somerset County Prosecutor Arthur H. Meredith urged the Appellate Division of Superior Court to block a new trial and reinstate the opnviction of Russo. Asked for Cards Sotaerset County Judge J. Berkeley Leahy had ordered the new trial last October after learning that a male juror had brought a radio into the jury room to listen to a World Series baseball game. The judge said the jury also asked for cards, which it did not get, listened to music and news broadcasts, and showed complete disregard of the court's instructions. Meredith argued that the statements heard on the radio broadcasts did not have the capacity or tendency to influence the verdict. Russo was found guilty of conspiracy to commit abortion. The jury was in the deliberating room nine hours. Attorney Raymond Brown, lawyer for Russo, centered his arguments for a new trial on the reasons given by the trial judge. "This type of conduct could be nothing but a stain on the administration of justice," he quoted Leahy. Baseball Pool "I cannot appreciate the immaturity of a jury who could think a ball game more important than the serious consideration of a defendant, in this case, the career and reputation of a professional man," Leahy had said in ordering the new trial. improvement, . William Angle, 167 Middlesex Ave., objected to his $720 as-agent, explained that the sewer was a benefit and would increase the market value of the house. Assessments partly depend on whether a particular facility benefits property. Firm Objects Irving Schwartz, attorney for Rogers-Carl Corp., objected to the $3,371 assessment for the corporation's four building lots on sessment since his home is connected to another sanitary sewer and would not receive any benefits. Citing a statement of Walter Bohlen, a local real estate agent. Angle said the new sewer would not increase the value of his home. Defending their assessment of the project, assessment commissioners stated that Walter Letson, another local real estate Mayor to Go METUCHEN "Mr. Flanagan goes to Washington" Thursday to discover where the borough stands now that Edison has been named as the site for the new central post office.

The appointment was announced through Rep. Edward J. Patten's office.

The Appellate Division questioned Meredith at length about a baseball pool which the jurors had run in connection with the World Series between the Dodgers and Yankees. Meredith said he found that during the course of the deliberations on Oct. 2 and 3 the jury had a pool going on the World Series, based on the total number of runs. He said the winner was paid off during the course of the deliberations. But he contended the pool was initiated before the jury entered the deliberating room and that the World Series broadcasts were on only during breaks in deliberations. He said the case lasted for two weeks and the jury deliberated about nine hours, exclusive of the 15 to 20 minutes the radio was on. No Precedent Meredith said he could find no legal precedent in which a radio was found in a jury room but he said the broadcasts in this case were insufficient to affect the verdict. Russo has been Somerset County medical examiner 10 years. He still holds the job. He was found guilty of conspiring to refer a former Som-erville woman to a doctor in Florida for an illegal operation. The Floridian, Dr. Rudolph Ayala, was indicted in Somerville on charges of performing three abortions but extradition efforts failed. Russo had faced a maximum sentence of three years in prison and a $1,000 fine on the one conviction. The three-judge court reserved decision on the case. Presiding Judge Edward Gaulkin said he may request Brown and Meredith to submit supplemental briefs before the court renders its decision.

Schwartz contended that the $16,000 borough sale contract for the lots stated the lots were "free and cl'ar of taxes, municipal fees and assessments." Borough Attorney Herbert Weissberger explained that such a contract included only past charges, but did not include "unconfirmed assessments." The corporation could have discovered there were "unconfirmed assessments" by asking the borough clerk prior to the sale, added Weissberger. Assessments are for gutters, sewers and paving. In other action, the council: Adopted an ordinance vacating public rights to a portion of Hampton Street, which will be added to the Hampton Street playground area. Edison as the location for the central facility. Those facts presumably will revolve around the argument that the borough, as the geographical center of the township, could more economically serve both municipalities in the routing of mail. Flanagan has not ruled out the possibility that the borough still may be in the running for the central facility, even though an official Post Office Department announcement has named Edison. The mayor also wants to know what will happen to present borough post office facilities. "All I have heard unofficially is that the post office here may be renovated," he said earlier. Home News Trim $70,000 Off School Budget PISCATAWAY TOWNSHIP Reductions, totaling $70,000, to its 1964-65 current expense budget were made by the Board of Education last night. The budget, twice defeated in February by voters, had been cut by $70,000 by the Township Committee, when the board asked its business administrator, William R. Walsh Jr., and Supt. Theodore Schor to recommend items to be cut. Unanimous Action The unanimous action last night followed a 50-minute executive session with Walsh to consider the recommendations. Schor, who became ill yesterday morning, was unable to attend the meeting. President Douglas R. Haines commented he hoped the board would not have to face reducing its budget again. "It was bare to begin with and now it is barer," he said. The board previously had changed the age requirement for kindergarteners, who now must be 5 years old by Oct. 1, instead of in December, to start school. The earlier date will reduce the number of children entering school. The board eliminated two kindergarten teachers, reducing the teacher salaries account by $10,600. A $1,630 reduction represents the amount the board planned to spend to convert one room each in Holmes Marshall and Grand-view schools into kindergartens. Another $10,600 cut was applied to salaries by eliminating the only two contingency teachers provided in the original budget. Eliminate Nurse The board applied $5,500 of the cut to coordinate activities by eliminating an additional nurse. It gave up plans to install a water line to the high school football field, a $4,500 reduction, and to build a fence at the high LICENSE LIFTED FOR ONE MONTH PISCATAWAY TOWNSHIP -A driver had his license revoked for 30 days and was fined $10 and $5 costs last night in Municipal Court for speeding.

Flanagan explained that the Recreation Department "is always asked about its need for parcels before we sell them." Councilman Donald Wernik also pointed out that the council will set aside nearly 13 acres this year for recreation use. "The sale of land doesn't come up to the land that we are turning over for recreation use," he added.
