Former intelligence agent dies at 79 WASHINGTON (AP) — Lucien E. Conein, the intelligence agent who was a key liaison between U.S. officials and South Vietnamese generals in the assassination of ^President felgo Dinh Diem, died Wednesday. He was 79. In 1954, after the partition of Vietnam, Conein organized anticommunist guerrillas in North Vietnam. He went on to act as a vital liaison between the U.S. Embassy in Saigon and South Vietnamese generals who plotted the overthrow and assassination of Diem in 1963. Conein served in the French and then later the U,S. Army, reaching the rank of lieutenant colonel. Because of his fluency in French, he was assigned to the Office of Strategic Services, a precursor to the Central Intelligence Agency. Conein was assigned to the CIA after its formation in 1947. Cats *purmT-form' at show • Long hairs, short hairs, kittens, exotics and even house pets were a part of the Michiana Persian Cat Fanciers show. By ANN HUBBARD Tribune staff writer "Buddy Pickle," "Leonard the Lovebug" and "Wild Patches" were strutting their stuff Saturday at Michiana Persian Cat Fanciers Third and Fourth Back-to-Back Championship and Household Pet Show at the Johanning Civic Center. This is the second year for the show to be in Kokomo, according to Show Manager Juanita Chnupa. There were 85 cats entered in this year's show mostly from Indiana, with a few from Ohio, Illinois, Kentucky, Wisconsin and Minnesota. The cats were entered in one of five categories: long hairs, kittens, exotic shorthairs, household pets and altered exotic shorthairs. There were judges in four different rings, judging cats all day long. Charles Lanz of Fort Wayne likes to attend the shows to exchange ideas on how to take care of the different breeds and how to make them stronger and healthier. He usually travels to shows within four or five hours, but he said he's met some people who travel to Europe for cat shows. While waiting their chance to show off their personalities, the cats were kept in cages draped with cloth to keep them somewhat isolated from the other cats in the show. It helps keep the stress down. Many had toys, plush beds, scratching posts and food, as well as a litter box inside their cages. Mickey Cotton of Indianapolis goes to shows once or twice a month. She had pictures of her newest additions to the cat family on top of her cage which held "Honeymoon Mirage," her 6-month Maine Coon kitten which had several ribbons hanging from its cage. Cotton said she can tell a good show cat by its looks, presence, ear set, eyes, face and coloration. She has six adult cats along with her newest arrivals at home. Linda Gregory of Elizabethtown, Ky., has been showing cats since 1990 because she enjoys it. Cats make pretty good friends, she said. To prepare for a show, it takes about 2 1/2 hours to get her 2-year-old, 28- pound, white Maine Coon, "Takeachance of Purrlsnlace," ready for the show. A Maine Coon has an oil coat so it takes a while to get it dry. "Everybody tells me he needs to be on a diet," Linda said of the large white ball of fur. He is on a little diet, but he is one of 14 cats that live in her house. Even the every day house cat had a place in the show. Chunpa said a barn cat could be shown as long as it is clean and healthy and showable, meaning it has a good temperament. She noted the next American Cat Fancier's Association show is scheduled for Aug. 22 and 23 at Woodland Park Community Center in Portage Ind. Today | Monday Partly to mostly tunny, breezy and cool.

By TRACY BANKSTON Tribune staff writer Rodeos are pretty much the same whether they compete in Texas or Indiana. The main difference in Hoosier rodeo is that the cowboy hats are a little more sparse throughout the crowd. There were a few Hobsiers decked out in western garb Saturday at the Russiaville Rodeo and Western Days Festival, especially the kids. Five and six-year-old boys seemed to have a blast strutting among the crowd with their cowboy hats pulled low and six shooters (toys of course) hanging low on their hips. These young rustics sat close to the fence, glued to the action. Adults by-and-large wore jeans, sweaters and tennis shoes. Russiaville certainly smelled like a rodeo as horses, cattle and rodeo participants worked to put on a great Western show. All rodeos begin the same, and this one stayed close to tradition. As competitors rode into the arena to be introduced, patriotic music played in the background. Elizabeth Gardner, Russiaville, sang the Star Spangled Banner acappella as one cowgirl held the American flag high on horseback as she galloped around the arena. The opening ceremonies closed with a prayer. The Indiana High School Rodeo Association was certainly not 'playing' cowboy for the day. These teens compete hard throughout the year in their chosen sport, and some compete in professional rodeo circuits as well. Kneeling near the holding pens, participants in the Indiana High School Rodeo Association at Russiaville's Western Days, pray before events begin, Saturday. High school students from across the state competed in the rodeo. (KT photo by Sally Washburn) The youth displayed skill, strength, agility and control as they roped, tied and wrestled steer; they rode bulls and broncs; raced through poles and around barrels. One competing couple will pursue their rodeo careers in college. Amy Joe Freeman, Bloomington, earned a "five-year full ride" at Missouri Valley College. She will use her scholarship to pursue a career in agricultural business. Her boyfriend and team-roping partner, Bobby Fodge, will attend Murray State University in Kentucky studying agriculture. "This (Russiaville rodeo) has been great," Freeman said. "We have never seen this many sponsors at one of our events before. The crowd has really been great." The crowd seemed to respond on cue. As the riders were tossed and thrown the crowd responded with applause, sighs of worry, relief and just plain awe. Brandon Gipson, Stalkwell, is the father of bull rider Larry Gipson. "I enjoy this. If they would have had it when I was a kid I would have done it," he said. His father, Elmer Gipson, said it was his first rodeo in 73 years. "It's all right, but it's pretty rough," he said. Local spectators said they came because they like to watch rodeos on television, because their children are interested in rodeos and some said they came just out of curiosity. Jerry Kemp, Indiana High School Rodeo president and event announcer, said the group would be back next year. (Bankston grew up in Beaumont, Texas and this was her first attendance at a Hoosier rodeo.)
