VICTORY DAY PROCLAMATION!
“WHEREAS, the Governor of this State has by proclamation
designated Wednesday, August 14, 1946, as “Victory Day” of World
War II and
“WHEREAS, this day is the anniversary of one of the greatest
dates in the history of this nation and of all mankind, marking as it
^oes world triumph of right over might and of freedom over slavery
“NOW, THEREFORE, I, S. M. Secrest, as Mayor of the Village of
Caldwell, do hereby call upon all patriotic citizens and organizations of
this community to join with patriotic orders in observing “Victory
i£lay” of World War II on Wednesday, August 14, 1946, in fitting cere
monies and exercises to honor the memory of all those who gave their
lives on far-flung battle fields that we might remain free, and to pay
tribute to the heroism and devotion of our fighting men and women.
“I urge all citizens and business establishments to display the
American flag and those of our Allies, and to participate in a demon

a lasting peace.

who served our country so nobly and so successfully during the recent

So when weekly newspapers
publish their annual statement of
ownership this fall, for the first
time they will be required to in
clude a sworn circulation figure.
The bill was signed by the Presi
dent on July 2 and is now law.
Having the backing of several
weekly editorial associations, the
measure for the first time will
provide advertising agencies who
desire to place national advertis
ing in weekly newspapers, some
idea of circulation figures, since
relatively few papers i n the
weekly field belong to any audit
bureau of circulation.
There was no organized resist
ance to the measure and what
little was encountered came from
individual publishers opposed to
the idea of being forced to reveal
their actual circulation. Daily
newspapers have for years been
operating under a similar basis.
The statement of ownership and
circulation must be published not
later than October 1. In many
ways it was designed to give busi
ness men and advertisers an ac
curate picture of the circulation
their local newspapers.
To prove his theory, Mr. Tomcho
has just reaped

Fenton and Hill Given 1-20 Years
In Penitentiary For Auto Thefts
NUMBER 5
Wilson Hill, 26, Stock township,
Noble county and Edgar L. Fenton,
26, Parkersburg, W. Va., wore
taken to the Ohio state peniten
tiary in Columbus, Monday morn
ing, by Sheriff Clayton McKee,
where both will enter a term of
one to 20 years for stealing and
operating a vehicle.
Both men were indicted by a
special session of the Noble county
grand jury last Wednesday. Fen
ton appeared before Judge L. B.
Frazier, Thursday morning and
entered a plea of guilty through
his attorney, E. P. McGinnis, ap
pointed by the court. Judge Fra
zier immediately sentenced him to
one to 20 years for the theft of a
car belonging to Lawrence D.
Kuhn of the Carlisle community.
Hill appeared before Judge Fra
zier, Saturday morning, entering
his plea of guilty as indicted by
the grand jury. E. P. McGinnis
also represented him in court and
prosecuting attorney, Leo Carter,
for the state. He received a like
sentence.
Fenton was taken into custody
two weeks ago by the state high
way patrol, who resorted to spot
ting him in a briar patch from the
air, using a plane from the Cam
bridge airport.
Fenton stole the vehicle from
Kuhn, while the latter was in the
Clyde Harris tavern in Belle Val
ley. Local officials and the state
highway patrol were notified and
they caught up with him near the
community of Mew Concord.
Fenton abandoned the car and
ran across a field to a dense briar
patch. He was taken into cutody
three hours later, after being
spotted by the pilot of a privately
owned plane from Cambridge.
This was the second time that
Fenton had gotten into trouble
with the law, having been placed
on probation, following a theft
charge.
Hill is supposed to have stolen a
car belonging to a salesman from
Woodsfield. He was also charged
with the theft of money but this
did not appear in the indictment.
This theft also ocurred after a
drinking spree in Belle Valley.
Hill and Fenton are the first two
men from Noble county to enter
the pen at Columbus for more
than a year.
