SECOND SECTION BATON DAILY NEW WOMAN'S PAGES FINANCIAL NEWS . CLASSIFIED DAYTON, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 19, 1934 GLAGGETT SEES GUT IN TAXES FOR 0AKW00D Approximately $39,000 is the estimated yield to the Oakwood school district from the new state tax program, and should be reflected in reduced levies on real estate in tho district, A. E. Clag-gett, superintendent of Oakwood schools, pointed out to members of the board of education at their meeting Tuesday night. Claggett's figures were based he said, on a report compiled by the assistant director of education for Ohio. The tax money will go toward operating' expenses. Bids were received by the board but no awards made on $23,000 worth of bonds. Withholding of the awards was deemed advisable pending the securement of better interest rates. To study the matter a committee headed by Horace Gray and including R. A. Tarkcr, clerk-treasurer of the board, was appointed. Besides the report on the tax money which will be forthcoming to Oakwood schools when the distribution is made, Claggett reported on the decreased number of post graduate students attending the high school, and on the showing of students in the 10th, 11th and 12th years in psychol ogy tests given by the state last week. Improved employment conditions were held by Claggett to be the reason for the decreased number of post graduate students attending the high school, while in his report on the state psychology tests he pointed out that Oak-wood students were above the average set for the state. ' Members of the Dayton board of education will meet Thursday night at their quarters on S. Ludlow st. Montgomery co. school board members met Wednesday afternoon in the offices of W. A.

CHRISTMAS MUSIC PAGE ON SATURDAY Notices for the annual Christmas page of music in the churches to be published Saturday must be received by the Music Editor of The Daily News not later than Thursday noon, typewritten, double-spared, on one side of the paper. Thursday noon is the "dead-line." This map shows the Wire- - photo network which will be inaugurated about Jan. 1 to bring i to The Dayton Daily News by wire the day's news in pictures from cities from coast to coast, and indicates the other metropolitan newspaper associated with The Dayton News in the 10,000-mile circuit over which pictures will travel side by side with the news. Wirephotos will lift1 the curtain on a new era in newspaper history, comparable to that which dawned with the invention of telegraphy a century ago, when The Dayton News inaugurates, about Jan 1, the delivery of news photos by leased wire. Just as telegraphy relegated the carrier pigeon, the pony express and the railroad to oblivion as mes sengers of news, Wirephoto will enable picture news to leave at the post such fleet messengers as the airplane and the railway train. A leased wire circuit iu,uuu miles long, transmitting news pic tures at the rate of half a newspaper page in 17 minutes with such perfection that transmitted prints may not be distinguished from originals, will bring news photographs to The Dayton News over this new system. This giant forward stride into a new journalistic epoch is in step with the pioneering tradition ot The Dayton News and The Associated Press through which the system is being established. The Dayton News and Ihe Associated Press developed the leased wire system for news transmission and perfected it by introducing the first automatic printer machines which substituted greater speed and mechanical efficiency for the earlier Morse system. When Prof. S. F. B. Morse of New York university transmitted the first telegraphic message in 1844 on a circuit between Wash ington and Baltimore he brought to the newspaper its most effective tool, boon after the first telegraphic dispatch was filed in 1846 from Isew iork to ihe Washing' ton (D. C.) Union, a group of New York publishers laid the ground work for the present Associated Press by associating to collect and receive news telegraphically with out domination by privately con trolled agencies. L p to 1900 the telegraph, wires could carry only 15 words of news a minute, which were copied m longhand. Improvement of equips ment and perfection of the typewriter enabled a speed of 25 words a minute, but in 1900 the news papers associated in The Associated Press had fetfer than 15,000 miles of leased wires and the total news handled a day did not surpass 15,000 words. Thirty words a minute was still an efficient pace for news transmission in 1914, when automatic printers were first used in an attempt to solve the problem of news distribution to papers in New York. The automatic printers, converting electrical impulses into printed letters on typewriting machines instead of dots and dashes, could transmit news at 60 words a minute. The first printer circuit embraced 20 machines in New York city. The first Wirephoto circuit, by comparison, embraces 24 machines from the Atlantic to the Pacific and from Minnesota to Texas. The success of the automatic printers in New York caused a second circuit to be set up from New York to Boston. Today, The Dayton News is connected with a wire network in The Associated Press which operates 3000 automatic printers, carrying a word a second to newspapers in every state and Cuba and Mexico, and linked with a similar network of the Canadian Press serving newspapers in Canada. Only four Morse circuits remain in operation in The Associated Press leased wire network. Over this system of wires move more than 200,000 words of news every 24 hours. With the speed of news transmission quadrupled and the daily wordage multiplied by 13 since 1900, several years ago steps were taken to give reality to a longtime dream: the transmission of pictures by wire side by side with the news. The telephotography principles and equipment of the '20s were expanded and improved, and The Dayton News together with associates throughout the country underwrote the service which will soon be in operation in this new field. Special film for Wirephoto reception and special paper for printing have been evolved to bring Wirephotos to perfection. Sending and receiving machines and telephonic control circuit occupy in each Wirephoto center 240 square feet of floor space. Pictures will travel at the rate of an inch a minute, by electrical impulses moving 186,000 miles a second, from each of these centers to all of the others in a single operation. For the first time in history news pictures and news story ride 1 the wires together. Regional Scout Chief Coming 4 "f ' X y,,"i'V.' 1 CLARENCE SHRINER Clarence Shriner, new regional chief of Region Four, comprised of Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky, will be a guest of honor at the Boy Scout Merit Badge Exposition at the Fairgrounds Coliseum Friday, and Saturday.

Urschel gave the First Lutheran church at Miamis-burg $300 as a perpetual memorial under his will and gave the balance of his estate, valued at $5000, to Charles, Edward, Lewis and Otto Urschel, share and share alike. Free on Parole Sentenced to London prison farm from Montgomery co. courts on a bad check charge, Clarence Schreel will he paroled Thursday, the state board decided Wednesday, NEW SECURITY IS DEMANDED IN SEEDS CASE , The "garden seeds" case sprouted again Wednesday. E. E. Duncan, assistant county prosecuting attorney, advised J. Clarence Schaeffer, clerk of courts, that the appeal bond signed by Gilbert Eichclbcrger, Mark Johan-ning and George R. Walker was not satisfactory. This is the second bond offered in Eichnlberger's appeal from the decision of Common Pleas Judge Mason Douglass in tho case, which failed. In the instant bond, Duncan said that the bondsmen, Johanning and Walker, were not satisfactory and so advised Schaeffer who called for a new bond Wednesday. The brief history in the case winds around Eichelberger's ap peal. Judge Douglass ruled more than a year ago that the county did not owe hirhelberger any part of his $7000 bill submitted for seeds, which the county bought and gave to those who established gar dens, as one aspect of poor relief, Eichclbcrger filed notice of ap peal and the bond for the appeal was placed at $1250. He offered a bond signed by C. M. Greer, Carl , Lcnz and Edward 1 reon. 1 reon iis clerk to the county commission land Greer and Lenz are deputy county auditors. They withdrew when the situation, in which they jhad placed themselves became ap-i parent. It was held that their in terests as bondsmen were inimical to those of the county from which they draw their pay. Ihe second bond filed bore Johanning's and Walker's signatures. Neither, Duncan said, own property in the county, according to the records. Apprised of thi circumstance, Schaeffer called for a new bond. The costs in the case thus far will approximate the entire sum of the bond, Duncan said. TWO TRAFFIC MEASURES GET FIRST READING Dayton Merryo-Round Steelo HI girl wins honor of presenting Orvillo Wright flowers by flip of coin. . . , Similar toss enabled Orvillo to become first of brothers to fly. . . . Oakwood school registrations from Dayton fewer. , , . Emergency jail shotgun helps out hunter, Betty Mmulhenk. 17-year-old student at Steelo high school, won the honor of presenting a basket of flowers to Orvillo Wright on behalf of Dayton school children by tho flip of a coin. Originally it was planned to present tho flowers at the school, where Wright was to appear on tho program with Licut.-Col, H. C. Pratt. Two students had been selected to present tho llowers. Y nen the inventor was unable to annear. the nlnns were altered to present the flowers at his home. It seemed desirable to have just one student for the purpose, and a newspaperman flipped a coin by mutual agreement to decide the lucky one. It was by such a flip of the coin, which his brother ilbur won, that Orvllle Wright became the first man to fly. ihe trial immediately preceding that, and made several days before, was not a success. Iho next turn was Or-ville's. When failure of a special levy threatened early closing of the Dayton schools, there was quite a rush by Daytonians to enroll their children in Oakwood. More recent action by the Dayton board, however, which was to keep the schools open even though there was a possibility of creating a deficit, has stemmed the tide. A. E. Claggett, superintendent of the Oakwood schools, announced that as soon as the decision became known, the enrollment inquiries greatly decreased. We are not anxious to overcrowd our schools, Claggett said, but had the Dayton school system shut down we would have taken the maximum number of new students that we could have handled efficiently. DEATH TAKES FOUNDRY HEAD First reading of the proposed new traffic ordinance, designed at bringing up to date regulations in Dayton and in numerous instances bringing about compliance with state traffic requirements was given by the City Commission Wednesday. One of the outstanding features of the ordinance is that providing for shorter left turns at street intersections. A companion ordinance, that containing a schedule of streets and spaces requiring various types of parking, also was given its first reading. There are no marked changes proposed in parking requirements, the companion measure simply having been presented to save incorporation of a long list of restricted places in the original traffic ordinance. The commission deferred action upon the application of the Inland Manufacturing Co. to vacate the portion of Coleman av., which passes through its property for one week. Action also was deferred on an ordinance proposing that the alley east of Abbey av. from the south line of lot 3(1,174 to the alley south of Third st. be vacated. Commissioner Frank Ireland passed his vote on the motion to table for one week. An ordinance by which it is made possible for a special officer to receive his oath at the hands of a judge or notary when the clerk of the commission is not available 'for the formality was passed. Commissionger John Breidenbach voted against the measure. First reading was given to an ordinance providing that beginning next year, food handlers who rent stands from tho city on public markets shall pay their food handling fees on July 1, the date on which the annual rental re newals fall. Heretofore the han dling fee has been paid on Jan. 1 Ihe step is suggested so as to make both rent and fee fall due on the same date. The Affiliated Architects and Engineers of Dayton presented a communication to the commission suggesting that the city require that plans for a building to cost in excess of $3000 should be approved by the inspection bureau only upon the condition that they had been prepared by licensed architects or construction engineers. It was recited that the request was made with a view to having the ordi nance covering the point coincide with the state code in its refer ence to safety and sanitation. The matter was referred to City Manager F. O. Eichelberger. 3 Ask Decrees Three suits for divorce were filed in domestic relations court here Tuesday, actions being brought by Sarah E. Wilhelm, Maine av., against Daniel, same address; Beatrice Loy, 1421 Stiner av., against William, Springfield, and Letha Kirkham, 42 E. Mumma av., against Floyd, Cambridge City, lnd. A deputy sheriff wanted to go hunting, but had not shotgun. The story goes that there is always one in the county jail to be used in an emergency, so the deputy borrowed it. Another deputy failed to put in his appearance one evening. He was asked about it and readily admitted having spent the time at a night club. "There was nothing doing here, so I just went out there and sat around," was his explanation. Common Pleas Judge William W. White was questioning a prospective juror to sit in a damage suit. The man gave his home as Brookville. To the question by the jurist as to whether he knew of any reason why he could not sit as a fair and impartial juror, the prospect replied that he was "against capital punishment, against prosecutors and againEt judges." "If your home was burglarized and the man apprehended, wouldn't you want him prosecuted?" Judge White asked. "No, sir," was the answer. Judge White excused him. r r 1 j i - v.,- f - .

The name of Steffen, for many years associated with the cafe business in Dayton, has assumed former significance with the opening of the English taproom at the Moraine hotel and with Frank Steffen, as manager. , Steffen began his business career with a cafe at Green and Jefferson sts. in 1891. Three vears later the uptown section beckoned to him and he opened the Fountain cafe on E. Fifth st. Four years spent there, and then came the Forum, which Steffen also dedicated. Steffen brothers were in business on E. Fourth st. when the prohibition era arrived. The trade booster club of a suburban town offered a substantial capital prize for the winner of a luckv number contest. The holder of the timed trade coupon was a woman of wealth. She failed to claim the award within the three davs allowed, and the large prize went to the holder of the next number, who was in needy circumstances. It was a great holiday lift, the winner agreed.

County commissioners Wedncs day completed the establishment of a new sanitary sewer district to be known, if and when it re ceives tho required support, as th Miami Valley Chautauqua district. The first step in the proceed ing is to set up the district and then follows all the sunt ys, hearings, determinations of cost and proration of assessments, Carl Bauer, deputy survcyoe under County Surveyor Victor Smith, said he would begin tha survey this week and Jt will re quire approximately three weeks to complete, after which tho first estimate of the cost of the project will be possible. Hearings will begin when tha estimated cost is arrived at, Bauer, said. The establishment of the dis trict has the signatures, Bauec said, of 77 per cent of the prop erty owners.
