Sen. Richard R. Stout, R-Monmouth, 5th, who called the bill most evil, and Sen. William T. Hiering, R- Occan, 5th, voted no. Action came after many hours of high pressured conferences with Democratic Gov. Richard J. Hughes pushing the lawmakers to a decision. From it they hope will come help to most of the 11 incumbent Democratic congressmen though they concede that it will cost at least the chair of Rep. Paul Krebs, of the 12th District in Essex County. Mr. Krebs, a former state CIO president, was sacrificed, over his own bitter objections, with reluctant support from his home county party leaders and some forces in organized labor who backed up Hughes' argument that alternatives would take a heavier toll.. Most of the 11 Democratic congressmen, including Mr. Howard, were in the Senate chamber as the hour-long debate, which started at 11:15 p.m., raged. (See DISTRICT, Page 2) Case, Howard Hail Army Decision Signal School Staying at Fort FORT MONMOUTH - The Signal School is here to stay. That was the official word released yesterday by Secretary of the Army Stanley R. Resor in Washington. He said the Department of Army announced its rejection of a Haines Board Study recommendation, which would have consolidated the Signal School here with the Southeastern Signal School at Fort Gordon, Georgia, and eventually merged the two facilities at the Georgia Army installation. The announcement brought praise from two of New Jersey's congressional delegation. Republican Sen. Clifford P. Case said: This reaffirms the assurances I was given by Gen. Frank S. Besson over a year ago that the Signal School would remain at Fort Monmouth. I am glad to have this reassurance. (Gen. BessDn commands the Army Materiel Command, parent organization of the Signal Corps and the Electronics Command.) Democratic Rep. James J. Howard (3d Dist.) said: This decision should put to rest, once and for all, the recurring rumors of the Signal School's moving. This is good news to me, and 1 Kavalek: Township Could Be Behind Eight Ball Sewer Hassle Shows Signs of Political Fiasco the sewer program which was drawn prior to creation of the authority. At the time the authority was established, the committee indicated its belief that Mr. Kupper would continue his work, by virtue of appointment as authority But Board Architect Wants Written Word State Favors Work at School engineer, for reasons of economy in costs and continuity in planning. Mr. Kupper himself recommended creation of an authority. But an authority faction, led by Vice Chairman Edward Schumann, has opposed his appointment and refused to move it. Only two members, chairman Beecher and Vincent P. Lamb, are supporting Mr. Kupper. To appoint another engineer would mean breaking the Kupper contract (with the Township Committee), the mayor confirmed, and this is likely to already completed preliminary based on the fact that he has mean litigation involving $500,- 000 to $1 million, or the value of the contract. Near $1 Million Mr. Kupper himself estimates the amount at near $1 million. By FRANK W.

Construction here would be similar, he said. The rendering showed a. 100-foot-wide, glassfronted structure. The manager said the site would be home base for a fleet of radio-equipped maintenance vehicles that would be dispatched each morning and return in the evening. Subdivision Classified The board classified the subdivision as major, but took no further action on It last night. The board gave final site plan approval to the Lawes Coal Co., til the inspection report Is verifipd in writing. The steel columns are in Block D of the $3.5 million project, the area comprising the auditorium and lobby. The June 2 work stoppage was the result of a May 25 state inspection which disclosed the wayward columns. Findings Reported George Soffel, a state school building inspector, made the Monday/examination and reported his findings to Mr. Holcom&e. While most city school officials were attending the high school The Jackson Township incident, which occurred during a Thanksgiving recess when classes were not in session, was ultimately blamed by engineers on an improper weld in a steel ceiling support. Only one classroom was involved, the roof collapse happened at the height of a heavy downpour. Calls for Probe Meanwhile, Councilman Edgar N. Dinkelspiel, in a letter to Gov. Richard J. Hughes, called for a complete legislative investigation into the state Department of Education to ascertain why their inspectors permitted these conditions (at the junior high school) to exist for so long & period, without demanding that the work be stopped before defect upon defect accumulated. (See SCHOOL, Page 3) Is Portland Rd. Private? Strike Rekindles Hassle HIGHLANDS - The strike against the Ocean View Retreat Nursing Home, Portland Rd., now in its third day, may have rekindled a long standing borough controversy whether or not the road leading to the home is private.

How's a guy going to get some sleep? Called The Mayor Mr. Romaine reported that he had called and complained to Mayor John A. Bahrs, who did nothing...'' He called and complained to Borough Attorney Benjamin Gruber, who didn't even return my call. And he called to complain to Monmouth County Jail Warden Earl A. Smith, Sheriff Paul Kiernan, and P. Paul Campi, undersheriff, without any action. I finally got a Lt. Hordorf who said he'd call his brotherin-law by the name of Cook, who might be able to get hold of Klernan or Campi, contended Mr. Romaine. I'd like to know one thing: how do citizens get hold of these people in an emergency in case these plcketers become unruly? Mr. Romaine said he ruled out calling local Police Chief Howard Monahan because he is under the impression this road Is prl vate and told strikers to stay off it, so now they're picketing on my property instead. , Mr. Romaine questioned- on engineering and a major part of final engineering. Normally unless the contract is broken Mr. Kupper would not be paid fees due him until contraction work starts. But if another engineer is appointed, the governing body will immediately be faced with the payment problem. Asked where the committee would get a million dollars or the amount due (which some officials estimate would go no higher than $750,000), in such event the mayor replied: There is only one thing I can say, we would be behind the eight ball. That is why this problejn is so serious and why it must be resolved with all haste. ., No Authority Money Mr. Lamb, authority treasurer, confirmed that the authority could not raise the money since it will work with revenue bonds and there presently is no revenue, and further pointed out that it is not an authority obligation. Committeemen have also noted that a lawsuit could involve the question of damages. Although a number of strong (See SEWERS, Page 3) hope the people of Monmouth share my pleasure. Rumors Ended In disapproving the recommendation, which was one of 74 made by the Haines Board in its study of the over-all Army school system, Army Chief of Staff Harold K. Johnson brought an end to long-existing rumors on the status of the Signal School here. The announcement was made here by Col. Donald Adams, deputy commandant of the Signal Center and. School, acting as official spokesman for commandant Brig. Gen. Thomas. M. Rienzi, who was in Washington on official Army business. In line with the announcement, Col. Adams said continued expansion is planned for the Signal Center and School here, both in (See SIGNAL, Page 3), ROAD TO THE BOG Improvement work on Texas Rd., above, looking south, in vicinity of Burnt Fly Bog was begun late la it week affer Marlboro Townthip Council granted Dominick Manzo of Matawan Township a variance for a landfill dump there. Mayor Walter C. Grubb, Jr., said operationi were not to have been started until township engineer approved specifications for both dump operation and road improvement. Mayor Grubt) Acts to Bar Premature Dump Activity MARLBORO - Mayor Walter C. Grubb, Jr., said last night that Dominick A. Manzo of Matawan Township will be instructed not to begin operations at Burnt Fly Bog covered by a variance granted him last week until conditions of the variance have been met. The mayor, who was away when council granted the variance last Thursday, said he has received many calls from residents of the township and the local community concerned over the Burnt Fly developments of recent days. A plan for conservation of the bog area, advanced by local and county planning consultants and endorsed by state conservationists, had drawn considerable popular support. State authorities said the landfill dumping operation proposed by Mr. Manzo was not compatible with the conservation plan. The township last year denied his variance request for that reason. On Tuesday of last week, however, the township Zoning Board of Adjustment approved a renewed variance petition. On Thursday the Township Council, suspending its rule requiring prior consideration at a Monday night study meeting, granted the variance. The.3-2 council vote wjs split on political faction lines, with the majority Purpose and Principle members voting approval. «The haste of that and subsequent action, Mayor Grubb said,, apparently has alarmed those concerned over an apparent threat to the conservation project. A condition of the variance, the mayor said, was that tlie township engineer approve specifications for both the dumping operation and for approach road Improvements, to be made ^jy the applicant, before the work started.
