The following were reported in the June 18, 1958, edition of The Johnstown Independent:
June 20 has been set as the date for referendum when wheat producers vote to approve or disapprove marketing quotas for the 1959 crop, according to Wendall J. Stevens, office manager of the Licking County A.S.C. County Committee. This is the sixth year in a row when quotas have been proclaimed by the Secretary of Agriculture. The secretary is required to take this action when the available supply of wheat is 20 percent or more above normal. The estimated supply for the 1958-59 marketing year is actually 50 percent above normal.
Supt. A.J. Kauber announced that the school board has signed Charles Kessler to the coaching staff at Johnstown High School. Kessler is a 1958 graduate of Capital University. He will either serve as head football coach or head basketball coach for the Johnnies next year. Kessler was hired to fill the vacancy left by Gerald Cornell, who took a job at Delaware. Kessler earned letters for four years in football and basketball while at Capital.
The Johnstown Vocational Agriculture Department played host to 13 other schools on June 9 and 10, by furnishing the facilities for a one-cylinder gasoline engine workshop for vocational agriculture instructors. The workshop consisted of a study of the operation and care of one-cylinder engines and how the basic principles of one-cylinder engines may be applied to larger engines in classroom teaching.
