Of 11 firms selected by the Chamber in a recent survey, the employment figure was up by 116 employes adding $650,000 in payroll: $2,260,000 was spent for building and land investments and $2,617,000 for machinery and equipment. "THE SANDUSKY Chamber of Commerce feels that local industry, furnishing as it does the basic payroll of this area, is the most important economic agent of the community," said Chamber President William R. Smith. "The continued growth of these industries assures the continued growth and prosperity of the area, and merits the recognition and gratitude of the entire community," he added.

(Register Photo—Dick McCullough) Six More Want Out Of Merger Requests for withdrawal of six more names from the petition to annex part of Perkins Township to the City of Sandusky were submitted to Erie County Commission this morning. Received by Board Clerk Eunice Conley from Andrew Wobser before the meeting they were shown to the board while It was in session. Wobser and Lester Toll, opponents of annexation, appeared in person at the meeting. Toll asked Commissioners Fred Deering and W. M. McLaughlin if the list had been presented. Deering told Toll, it would be presented for further consideration and for legal council when the absent member J. R. Crecelius was present. According to Deering, the 105 withdrawal requests already re(Continued on Page 12—Col. 4.) COMMITTEE HEARS TESTIMONY Driving Age Studied Frankfurter Dies At 82 COLUMBUS (UPI) - Ohio's minimum driving age comes up for consideration today in the House Highways Committee, which will hear testimony on (See Story, Page 2) four bills designed to raise the present 16-year-old minimum to either 17 or 18 years. Monday's action was highlighted by introduction of the controversial fair housing bill, the "hot potato" in the last session which this time has been handed to the Ohio Senate. Democratic Sens. Frank King of Toledo, Robert Blackburn of Dayton and Charles Pancake of Nelsonville introduced the bill, practically a carbon copy of the bill that died in a House subcommittee last session. It forbids discrimination in the sale or rental of homes or apartments because of race, creed or color. The House passed a bill allowing some Ohio insurance companies to avoid a recent VITAL STATISTICS BIRTHS GOOD SAMARITAN Mr. and Mrs. James R. Mariea, 718 Sycamore Line, daughter.

Four state representatives proposed to encourage prayers in public schools with a resolution similar to one that died in the Senate two years ago. Rep. J. L. Frost, R - Georgetown, chief sponsor of the resolution, said it was not designed to antagonize the U.S. Supreme Court for its ruling banning school prayer but rather to "encourage our children to pray." Frost said the Ohio Constitution states religion is necessary for good government. Other measures introduced Monday would: —Allow boards of education to establish classes for crippled and slow - learning children over 3 years old. —Deny Ohio driver's licenses to new residents whose licenses are under revocation or suspension in other states. WASHINGTON (UPI) - Retired Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter, the diminutive immigrant who became one of the giants of American jurisprudence, died Monday at the age of 82^ Frankfurter v died at 5:05 p.m. EST at George Washington University Hospital. He was taken there Sunday after the last of a series of heart seizures which forced his reluctant retirement from the bench Aug. 28, 1962. The hospital said death was caused by an acute heart attack. Mrs. Frankfurter, the former Marion Denman of Longmead- o\v, Mass., has been an invalid for a number of years and was unable to be at her husband's side when the end came. She was told of his death at their home by hospital physicians. The couple had no children. President Johnson expressed sorrow at the death of Frankfurter, who he said "did so much to preserve freedom through wise interpretation of the law." Chief Justice Earl Warren called Frankfurter "a Who's Who In Sandusky, Area Know your friends and neighbors? You'll have a chance to find j out how well you know fellow Sandusky area folks who are engaged in various businesses in the city and area if you enter the Register's "Who's Who" contest. Details appear on pages 4 and 5 in today's Register. groat man of the law" who left an indelible stamp on the Supreme Court and on the Constitution. Frankfurter was a Harvard Law School professor when he was named an associate justice of the Supreme Court by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1939. When he retired 23 years later, the then secretary of labor, Arthur J. Goldberg, succeeded him. Believed Edison Bridge Bill < Wins OK In House The proposed Thomas A. Edison Memorial Bridge is halfway to becoming a reality. THE HOUSE of Representatives Monday passed without opposition and sent to the Senate a bill to name a new bridge carrying Ohio 2 across Sandusky Bay between Erie and Ottawa Counties in honor of the Ohio-born inventor. The bill is sponsored by Erie County Representative Ethel (i. Swanbeck, R-Huron and Earl Wiseman, of Fori Clinton, whose counties are connected by the span. Edison was born in Milan in Mrs. Swanbeck's Erie County. "THERE IS no more opportune time to honor Thomas A. Edison than the present," Mrs. Swanbeck said. "There has never been a shrine to him. No man has done more to apply scientific knowledge to our everyday life." Wiseman said the fact that the bridge is a "practical answer to a traffic problem" made it more fitting that it should be named for Edison. Revenue NEW YORK (l'PI)-An explosion and thro e- alann fire destroyed a Black Muslim mosque in the heart of Harlem early today in what appeared to be the first act of retaliation for the assassination of black nationalist leader Malcolm X. Police said an "explosive device" was the possible cause Five firemen were reported injured, one seriously. One civilian also was hurt in the fire that authorities termed "suspicious." A joint investigation bv the police and fire departments centered on the burned out (Related Story Page It) mosque and one solid clue--a brown paper bag discovered on a roof adjoining (he mosque. Fire Commissioner Martin Scott at the scene said the bag bore traces of "some oily substance." It was being studied in the police laboratory. Hundreds of extra patrolmen and detectives were on the streets of Harlem today to prevent any acts of violence between followers of Malcolm X and the Black Muslims. (Continued on Page 12—Col. 5.) May Seek 'Conflict' Opinion Is there a possible conflict of interest on the part of any of the five Sandusky City Commissioners? The answers: Definitely not — and perhaps. Both are correct, depending 1 upon which of two commission! meetings last night is being considered. Commission President nnd Ex- officio Mayor William L Harbrecht led the four attending commissioners in denying the i possibility of conflict by any: commissioner. The denials were made during a public meeting before a small audience. They were in answer to a story appearing in the Saturday morning edition of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, in which a writer stated the city was investigating the possibility of conflict cases involving three comr- ; ssioners. Bui following the public meeting — and a long discussion with the Plain Dealer writer, Anthony TfrAfflc™ _ Harbrecht entered the executive sessun and did a complete about-face, explaining Thomson had convinced him the situation, at least in the case of one com­ missioner, .bears further investigation. He told Commissioner George Hohler he might be in violation of the city charter, but ex­ plained he didn't believe Hohler was involved "in anything that does not smell right." Hohler, a member of the commission for fhe past year, is What To Do? Conflict Issue Has Far-Reaching Overtones The conflict of interest issuing facing the Sandusky City Commission could have far- reaching effects on several fronts—mainly, in the upcoming political wars and recruiting members for advisory committees. BOTH POINTS were brought out during two commission meetings last night— along with individual formulas prescribed to avoid further questions and unnecessary bad publicity. The question most controversial to the commissioners was: Should an opinion on Commissioner George Hohler's possible conflict of interest be called for, or should the matter be dropped now? "I THINK if there is any question in anybody's mind, we should resolve it," Commission President and Ex-officio Mayor William L. Harbrecht pointed out. "I just can't agree with you on this thing. I think the best thing would be to just let it drop," countered Commissioner William Steuk. HE BROUGHT up the Ohio Revised Code section affecting conflict of interest, (Continued ort Page 12—Col. 4.) j purchasing agent for the Diamond S Electric Co., which has done some $600 in business with the city during his term in office. ] The other two commissioners; mentioned in Thomson's article; were Harold Schaeffer and Wil -j liam Steuk. Schaeffer is treasurer of American Crayon Co.! and Steuk operates the Steuk Fruit Farm. Both linns do business with the Sandusky School System, but are within the legal confines of both the state conflict statutes and the city charter. Harbrecht told the commis-' sioners Thomson "feels — and it has some merit, 1 believe — that we should pursue it further." Harbrecht told Hohler he would have brought up the conflict question several weeks ago, when Diamond S submitted a; bid on $3,000 in supplies for the city. But he said he let it drop (Continued on Page 12— Col. 1.) MOSQUE FIRE INJURIES—Firemen administer first rddes injured during fire that engulfed a Black Musli Harlem early this morning.
