Court Selects Two INDIANAPOLIS (INS) — It's wme free for any community to iolate Indiana's time law. The 1957 law stipulates that Cen- ral Standard Time shall begin Sunday, but Governor Harold W. Handley and Attorney General Edwin K. Steers extracted all its teeth Monday. The Governor put all state workers back on slow time, but said that each instance of violation of the law over the state will be decided by Steers, who promptly said: "I find that the adjustment of office and school hours is an administrative matter and does not violate the statute as long as such adjustment of hours is made in accordance with the required time set out in said law and without stated intent or purpose to circumvent the law." The upshot will be that many Hoosier cities and towns will merely set their clocks on slow time and have their workers report an hour earlier and leave an hour sooner in the afternoon. In that manner the communities will not lose their state aid funds, as specified in the time law. at the home of his mother, Vlinnie King, of Windfall, iervices scheduled for 2 p.m. Wednesday in the Windfall Christian church.

The collision occurred at a crossing one mile north and one mile west of Windfall, on the Windfall-Sharpsville blacktop. The Windfall man, born in New Castle Nov. 20, 1922, was the son of Leonard and Minnie (Marcum) Guffey. He married the former Miss Marilyn Richwine, who survives, on Feb. 25, 1943, and was the father of five children; Janice Guffey, Sue Guffey, Leonard Guffey, Frankie Guffey and Debra Mae Guffey, all of whom survive. Other survivors include two brothers, Frank Guffey of Arcadn. and Clifford King, of Windfall; and two sisters, Mrs. Audrey Jones, of Greenfield, and Bonnie June King, of Windfall.
