Perch Nibblin' Through Sandusky Bay Ice Lions Park Area Is Suggested For Skating, Baseball City ManaK^er Kuxel Studies Plan To Use Plastic Base To Hold Water For Rink. City Commissioner Harold G. Schaeffer Monday night urfcd city officials to take definite action in establishment of an outdoor ice skatIng: rink for the city as soon as possible. Hi.s statement followed the reading of .two—communications from the Samktsky lions Club, Pat Hahn, secretary, and the Sandusky Kiwanis Club, H. George Barone, secretary, in which both,organizations urged .such recreation facilities as a needed winter activity here. Commissioner Schaeffer asked for further investigation into the 1-ions park area where the veterans' housing unJLs were razed, slating that the site could be developed for ice skating in the winter and as a Little League baseball site for the summer. City Manager Karl H. Kugel said that he is investigating the possibility of using a plastic material for the base of an outdoor rink in which the water would not penetrate through and into the ground when thaws occur. He said the sides would be approximately six inches in height. The Lions park location also brought favorable comment from c;ommissioner Thomas Beat. Commissioner Charles Meyei* suggested that the city manager continue to explore the possibilities of the plastic rink. Luke O'Mallcy, 501 Central-av, commented that Central park areas might be converted for possibly .six tennis court in the summer and skating rinks in the winter and would be centrally located. The letters from the .service clubs were placed on file. Persons who were allocatedi mooring spaces this past season are to be notified by postal card' of the public hearing. Chairman Fuller pointed out that Battery Park is now operating in the "red" to the extent of $6,00\) per year, the deficit being made up by the general fund. He said that fees have been re vised in the proposed amended ordinance in an effort to eliminate this condition. It has been proposed, he said, to take the park out of the "red" by, establishing berth rates, at double, the present rate; restricting non-residents of the area Costly MCarm -Up SUPERIOR. WIS., Dec. 20 (UP) - Salvation Army Lieut. Ralph SpeLser reporled Monday! night that he stopped ringng his the season bell long enough to warm up in a .store and returned to find his kettle and $15 worh of contributions gone. from berths until Sanduskians are given first choice, and that it was recommended that non- occupants of a.ssigned berths have permits withdrawn. Boatinr Groups Approve He said that these recommen-' dations had been concurred in by representatives of various boating groups in Sandusky. The matter developed into a lengthy discussion, however, when Abraham Fingerhut, 319 E. Jefferson-st, called for revamping of the entire mooring permit system and charging a flat rate for ail boat owners, regardless of size. Als'o, he suggested that steps be taken to provide boat storage during the - winter on the inner docks as a means of providing more revenue for the city. Fingerhut said his chief goal was to take the park out of the "red" for the city. He also sug: gested one person as wafclirhari instead of two, thus eliminating added expense. He said the concession operator could serve as harbor master and watchman. Commissioner Harold G Schaeffer said that the proposed mooring plan was to be tried for one year to .see how effective it was in satisfying boat owners' requests and in taking the city out of the "red." Give Local Preference City officials have in the past attempted to give local boat owners preference over non-residents of Sandusky in assigning berths for the sea.son. It was also said that in past years permits have been issued for berths and that the berth was not occupied for variousT ^asons, resulting in complaints from persons who had not been able to obtain a berth at the start of —Harley Hoffman Photof *rHE popular winter vacationland sport of ice fishing is again underway on Sandusky Bay.

Criticism Up On Plans For Foreign Aid $5 Million Total Seen As Expanded Program For '56 WASHINGTON, Dec. 20 j (TNS)-Two GOP senators ' joined today in mounting criticism of the administration's reported plan to ask : about five billion dollars in I foreign aid next year.

Berlin Reds Threaten Action On Visiting GFs BERLIN, Dec. 20 (UP)—The East German Communists threatened today to take action against American soldiers entering East Berlin, the "capital of the German Democratic republic." The threai came in angry commentaries on the acquittal Monday by a U. S. Army court martial of two soldiers the Communists accused of attacking an East Berlin actor. The Neues Deutschland, official newspaper of the Communist Party, said the ".American court and the rowdies backed up by it should take care not to confuse the capital of the GDR with Chicago."

Eight of the known dead were the crew members aboard the two big jet B47 bombers, which crashed in the air with a thunderous explosion -near Tampa, spraying fiery bits of wreckage over a wide area. Three other airmen were known dead and three others were listed as missing in the air collision of a propeller-driven B-29 and an F86 all-weather jet interceptor about 14 miles east of Tyndall Air Force Base in the vicinity of Mexico Beach just i outside Port St. Joe. For Many Years Contrary to alleged statements of salesmen circulating in the Sandusky area that there is a scarcity of grave spaces in Oakland Cemetery, City Manager Karl H. Kugel told the city commission Monday night that such is not the truth. He said riTat the improved area of the cemetery now has Has Been Broken UNITED NATIONS. N. Y., Dec. 20 (INS) — The UN Assembly broke a bitter deadlock of nearly three months standing today by electing Y'ugoslavia to the disputed Security Council .seat being vacated at the end of the .\'ear by Turkey. Dulles cited two reasons for the increase: 1. The new money is needed to keep the military pipeline to America's allies full. The pipeline was depleted this year because of sharp aid slashes ordered by Congress. 2. There is an urgent need to Increase U. S. aid to the Middle East and Far East where Russia is challenging this country's leadership. Sen. Carl T. Curtis (R-Neb.\ said bluntly: "I don't like it. 1 was hoping they were going to taper off foreign spending. 1 don't know if tills means a step up in appropriations or in spending, but I don't like it." Sen. Charles E. Potter (-Mich), who usually supports the administration, declared: "I would certainly look at it, a five billion dollar request with a jaundiced eye.'' Foreign aid appropriations this year amounted to $2,765,875,000.
