Wednesday, June 4, 1980 The Coshocton Tribune 3 COLUMBUS. Ohio (AP) President Carter staved off a late surge by Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., to win Ohio's Democratic primary and boost his delegate count beyond the 1,666 needed to win renomi-nation at the party's national convention in August. With 85 percent of the state's 13,326 polling places tabulated from Tuesday s balloting, he had 511,896 votes, to 427,986 for Kennedy. In the GOP presidential primary, Ronald Reagan breezed to victory over former United Glenn Is Senaie Winner Coshocton County residents went with U.S. Sen. John Glenn in Tuesday's primary. Glenn, a Democrat, drew an unofficial vote total of. 2,107 in the county as he seeks reelection. County voters gave Frances A. Waterman 373 votes and Francis Hunstiger 223. Glenn's opponent in November will be unopposed Republican James E. Betts. He drew 2,066 unofficial complimentary votes in Coshocton County. With 86 percent of the polling places tabulated in Tuesday's primary balloting, the former astronaut had 791,743 votes, compared with 75,227 for Bexley housewife Frances Watermann and 54,909 for Parma Heights engineer Francis Hunstiger. Only Glenn had run for statewide office before In 1974 when he carried the general election against former Cleveland Mayor Ralph Perk by a million vote margin. This November he'll test Republican state Rep. James E. Betts of Rocky River, who was nominated without opposition. The ineffectiveness of the poorly financed and barely noticed campaigns of Glenn's primary challengers was apparent with the first returns. In the 87 of the 88 counties tabulated by early this morning, Glenn led in them all often by thousands of votes. In 1974 he became the first candidate in the century to carry all 88 counties in a general election. Tuesday's primary tallies were the product of the 58-year-old senator's $700,000 fail-safe campaign, an intensive effort that would have been as appropriate for a candidate in a tight , race fighting to avoid political oblivion. Betts, 47, a tall Glenn look-alike, spent the primary campaign blasting the incumbent ana his voting record. According to the challenger, who had to give up his seat in the Legislature to run for the Senate, the record shows Glenn is "a big spending liberal, despite his conservative image.' Glenn merely spoke of his Senate accomplishments and his membership on such important committees as foreign relations, government operations, and a special panel on aging. A Cleveland Marsall Law School graduate now rounding out his third, two-year term in the Ohio House, Betts is spearheading a statewide effort to limit state government spending. He expects to obtain nearly 300,000 petition signatures to place a constitutional amendment on the November ballot that would limit state spending to the rate of inflation unless hikes were approved by the governor and extraordinary majorities in the Legislature.

The 94th district includes Coshocton County, half of Muskingum County, including Zanesville, and the southern portion of Holmes County. Grier is currently in his second term as Coshocton's mayor and has been a four-term city council presdent.

Not Surprising State Issues Defeated COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Ohio voters have defeated four ballot issues including two that would have provided funds for low cost mortgages and highway improvements. Coshocton County voters said no Tuesday to the four proposed amendments to the Ohio Constitution. On Issue 1, the unofficial county total was 3,714 against and 2,084 for. The unofficial tally on Issue 2 was 3,938 against and 1,869 for. On Issue 3, the unofficial county results showed 3,409 against and 2,276 for. Finally, on Issue 4, the unofficial vote was 3,419 against and 1,932 for. The other proposals would have allowed municipal electric systems joint generating facilities and local governments to change the way they inform residents of plans to adopt charters. With 89 percent of the state's 13,326 precincts reporting from Tuesday's election the votes were: Issue 1, municipal electric systems: 693,076 for and 1,019,-671 against. Issue 2, housing: 707,467 for and 1,017,058 against. Issue 3, highways: 732,689 for and 966,622 against. Issue 4, charters: 771,455 for and 857,442 against. Under Issue 2, local and state governments would have been able to sell bonds to raise money which would be loaned to brokers, mortgage lenders and savings and loan associations. The lending institutions would have offered loans at reduced rates to individuals qualifying as low and moderate income earners. It's defeat didn't surprise state Rep. Michael Stinziano, D-Columbus, who had supported it. "It's its third time on the ballot. Folks who already own homes cannot understand why anyone else should get a break' Stinziano said. The defeat of Issue 3 leaves the state Department of Transportation with little hope of increasing its funds for long-range highway improvement projects.

Dowd Jr., of Massillon emerged the victor today in a tight battle for the Republican nomination to seek a seat on the Ohio Supreme Court. Dowd, a judge of the 5th District appeals court, held a 14,-000-vote lead over George C. Rogers, a Whitehall lawyer, with virtually all precincts reporting. Both far outdistanced Rocky River Municipal Court Judge William J. McCrone of North Olmsted in the lone pri mary battle for three court seats up for grabs in the November general election. All had been vying for the GOP's nod to seek the post vacated by the retirement of Justice Thomas M. Herbert, a Republican. With 98 percent of 13,304 polling places reporting, Dowd had 249,950 votes; Rogers 235,559 and McCrone 116,720, unofficial results compiled by the secretary of state's office showed. Dowd will face Democrat Clifford F. Brown, judge of the 6th District State Court of Appeals, in the fall balloting. Brown was unopposed in the primary. Dowd, a former Stark County prosecutor, had the endorsement of the Republican State Committee's Judicial Task Force for nomination, and appeared on the basis of advertising to have conducted the most extensive campaign of the three. Pre-primary campaign financial reports showed he raised $8,735 and spent $1,981 in his quest for the nomination. Rogers and McCrone did not file reports, indicating they spent less than $1,000.

Tight brezze of Cleveland, looking for a full, six-year term as the state's top jurist, was unopposed in the Democratic primary. He will be challenged this autumn by Cleveland Municipal Court Judge Sara J. Harper, unopposed in the Republican primary. Another Republican, Justice Robert E. Holmes, Columbus, faces Democrat Lawrence Grey of Athens in November. Holmes was named to .the court last year to fill a vacancy. Grey is a judge of the 4th District State Court of Appeals. All the terms at stake in November are for six years. The post of chief justice carries an annual salary of $55,000, while associate justices are paid $51,-000 a year. Democrats enjoy a 4-3 edge on the court. Legislative boundaries must be redrawn next year based on 1980's census figures and shifts in population. The districting plan devised by the Democrat-dominated Reapportionment Board is certain to be challenged by the GOP in a case that would make its way to the Ohio Supreme Court. j- "Save With ttie Folks You Know" June 4 10, 1980 I MAAL0X ANTACID fff SY1VANIA SUPER 10 TROPICAL BLEND " 1 Wg LiSl 2 Mia Lit! 2 77 4a, H jft?PJL - "( jaux gp teg, M 2.09qjg6 1,0;7fl J PEPS0DENT TOOTHPASTE I tzM .y Trfl fir inPif.-Sil ASCRIPTIN Wuijm """"Jrt 1 nti ii !m!m i;;;r 1,39pj 88cn Wl3 SELTZER IlfliWl llIf C0NAIR PRO STYLE l SOWRCAINE LJ mM HAIR BLOWER $ t Wl UJ; MLSJ s1788 iL69g TYLE,N0L -tV ) i,y DRAMAMINEff, OfftfNOL rG0TT TOTE 12 COOLER uV'n . 199p E 1.09 lrwi HAIR SPRAY QR 1 0 fiR 'v-J; ' E FAMY H RnjuilrBoi Pump ' 0 K M Wq la J 5' VJl Mia 141 3 13 A ' m mf 1.59 cOri ( rave , - )1-19 t& SCHICK i ?IRACURLY DRY IDEA ROLL-ON F SUPER II QiTrWTT L 56 " - j?ti fi,.Nw . g,"" g.Mpem coin tefll 1 L . 1.19 lilil Lr" os) 1.79 H, I N0RM0L f 1 OLD SPICE rJ Stfra, ENCARE OVALS AFTERSHAVE !V ww ' r n ft- LOTION ' 1.39 I s2.69l 1 1.99 ECLIPSE rr?T " 1 1 ",u-- 1 1 1 REACH TOOTHBRUSH SUNSCREEN $ . $ r "V v 5 -fly SKSffifi- ISs SCOTCH E3 ""'"'JLmJ ' HIGHLANDER &?4 MC-t .oJ) 9Q i M MINUTE Brtl SS" 1 fc.faJ 'i - CASSETTE TAPES fOT A3'JIST 4.49 w'" Sis3 TAMPONS Tl 4.88gM gSj 1.79 kl.
