STARTING PLANS Patriotic Organizations Call Meetings to Arrange for Annual Observance. BUT SEVEN VETERANS During the Civil War Tipton County Sent Almost I,100 of Its Men. Already plans are underway for the annual celebration and observance of Memorial Day, which this year comes on Thursday, •May 30. Graves of men who served in all wars will be sought out and decorated with flags and flowers. No cemetery will be overlooked in the county and already data is being secured to idd -to that already on hand by the committees. Meetings of various patriotic societies will be held during the next few days to plan programs and a public observance will be included in the programs for the day. During the civil war, Tipton county which was but 17 years old when war was declared and scantily settled, is credited with furnishing 54 more men than her quota. When the war closed the county had a. population of less than l,7ftO men and Tipton had a population of about 500. Figures in the war department at Washington credit Tipton county with having flurnished 1,073 men which exceeded its quota and it is pretty sure that some enlistments of Tipton men were cred- ted elsewhere. Today, seventy years after the civil war closed there are in Tipton county but seven surviving veterans of that long drawn out battle for the preservation of the union. Two of these veterans, both able to be up and around are residing in Tipton, John Miller of North East street and Gordon Williams of South Main street. One veteran resides in Windfall, this helng Madison Wright who is up and around but does not venture far out of his home. Another Absalom Sumner resides southeast of Tipton and is up and around. Two of the veterans reside In Prairie township, Edward Ulrich, who is at the home of his son, Dwight and John M. Wilburn who makes his home with his son, Lora. The seventh veteran Charles M. Conway resides in his own home northeast of Windfall and is confined to his home. Ed Ulrich, the oldest of the veterans, was born .March 12, 1838; Madison Wright was born October 10. 1841; John Miller was born January 28", 1844; Absalom Sumner was horn October 18, 1844; John M, Wllburn w,as born April 23, 1845; Charles Conway was born August 28, 1847 and 'Gordon Williams was born March 5, 1848: Continued on Page 2.

Xew York ted the Nation ; in 1034 Planting of Trees Albany, May 2.—New York state, celebrating this year the 50th anniversary of conservation, holds national leadership today in tree planting, according to- Conservation Commissioner Lithgow Osborne. The Empire state, his figures show, set out 40,564,282 trees in 1934, about 25 per cent of the country total of 164.000,000. This was three times as many trees as were set out by Wisconsin, which planted 14.857.505. Michigan was third, sot- ting out 12.468,500. The nation's total tree planting last year was the largest in history, with 86,000,000 trees set out on state forest lands and about 78.000,000 in national forests. Chicago, May 2.—A young author of adventure stories, embellishing his confession with excerpts from a 3,000-page diary, toldj police today that he set fire to nearly 50 apartment buijdlngs..

Moscow, May 2. — These are days of fear for those Moscow citizens whose "class , background" is unsatisfactory to the Communist regime. A drive by the political polho similar to the, recent one which resulted in exile from Leningrad of more than 1.000 persons (according to official ^gures; private sources estimate it even higher) appears under way here. How many have gone on the long journey to prison camps or exile in the provinces; no on.? knows but the men who sit in the grim, iron-barred building on Lubianka' Square • which houses the commissariat of internal affairs, formerly the OGPU. Within the narrow limits _o£ the foreign diplomatic circles, a number of specific cases of rrcent "disappearances." are known. Two dentists who administered to the diplomatic corps are not to be found. They had said nothing to friends -about intending to leave Moscow. A high official of Intourist. the Soviet travel organization, who- was -very friendly with foreign diplomats and journalists, is similarly "missing." .
