PageS Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Sunday, June 29, 1986 GOP Sets Up Program to Attract Min ST. LOUIS (UPI) — The Republican Party embarked on a new program Saturday to enlist minority participation because, GOP Chairman Frank Fahrenkopf said, Republicans "do not intend to turn our backs on black Americans." "No subject is more critical to the future of our party than minority participation," Fahrenkopf told the summer meeting of the Republican National Committee. The RNC created an advisory commission on minority participation to study the problem. Historically, the Republican Party has done poorly among black voters. President Reagan got only 9 percent of the black vote in 1984. Fahrenkopf named Edward Lujan, chairman of the Republican Party in New Mexico, to head the commission. "The purpose of the commission is to make recommendations to the RNC chairman with the goal of taking steps to attract more minority commmunities into our party's activities," Faharenkopf said. The GOP is more encouraged about prospects among Hispanics, where Reagan got 45 percent of the vote in 1984. One party program will register hundreds of Cuban-Americans on July 4 shortly after they are sworn in as citizens in special ceremonies in Miami. "We Republicans do not intend to turn our backs on black Americans," Fahrenkopf said. The last intensive effort to sign up blacks in the GOP was in 1978 when the Rev. Jesse Jackson was invited to address the RNC and black consultants were hired to develop a program to appeal to minorities. That program was largely unsuccessful. The latest effort came after a two-year study by an RNC committee into whether party rules tended to discourage minority participation. Party critics said rules that give bonus delegates at national conventions to states that vote for the Republican presidential candidate favored small Western states and discriminated against Northeastern states with greater minority populations. "A thorough analysis of the RNC rules yields no evidence oif discriminatory intent or effect on any minority group," said the study, which recommended creation of the new commission. Ex-Postmaster General Sues Board Of Governors WASHINGTON (UPI) — Former Postmaster General Paul Carlin has sued Postal Service's board of governors for allowing "a cancer to develop and fester" by not stopping a member from trying to steer a contract to a Texas firm. A hearing was scheduled for Monday in U.S. District Court on Carlin's suit, filed Friday, that seeks a temporary restraining order to prevent the board from hiring a new postmater general untiJ his case is heard. A Postal Service spokesman said Saturday officials were aware of Carlin's suit but, "We haven't seen the suit or read it, so there will be no comment.'' Carlin was ousted by the governors in January and replaced by Albert Casey, who announced at the time of his appointment that he would serve only until August. In his complaint, Carlin accused former board Vice Chairman Peter Voss and governors Ruth Peters and George Camp of pressuring him and other postal officials to steer a contract toward Recognition Equipment Inc. of Irving, Texas, without competitive bidding. Voss pleaded guilty last month to charges of embezzlement and receiving kickbacks in the case. Officials at the company have denied knowledge of the kickback scheme, as have the governors. The governors, Carlin's complaint charges, "allowed a cancer to develop and fester and closed their eyes when symptoms of decay and corruption manifested themselves."

The burglary and theft was reported to the Logansport Police Department on May 27,1985.

Once inside, the perpetrators went to the front of the building where a one-and-a-half-ton Schwaab safe was located. The safe was on rollers. The suspects are believed to have pushed the safe to the south end of the building were, investigators believe, they rolled it onto the back of a truck that had been backed into the dock area. The safe contained business records, cash, checks and ledgers. Later on the same day, Indiana State Police located the safe near Cass County Road 125S, just west of County Road 1075E. The safe was found about 250 feet off the road near the river bank. Tire tracks found at the scene are believed to have been made by a truck with dual wheels. The safe had sustained considerable damage when it was opened. It's contents were scattered throughout the area. Investigators have no information about the suspects at this time.

Meirka-u^ogansport "You might say that a total hip replacement successfully 'doctored' my golf game." Bernard R. Hall, M.D. Obstetrics & Gynecology ",4s my friends — and many of my patients — know, golf has been a hobby of mine during 30 years of medical practice. But I had to briefly give it up recently for major surgery on my right hip. "Some people might wonder why 1 had it done at Memorial Hospital in Logansport when my choice of hospitals and orthopedic surgeons was unlimited. "The answer is quite simple. Bigger doesn't always mean better. From mv personal observations, all departments at Memorial — surgery, anesthesiologv, recovery room, postoperative floor, nursing staff, and physical therapv — were equal if not the best of all those considered. "My feeling is, though, that not everyone realizes the great capabilities of our Memorial Hospital and its well- trained staff — representing virtually all of the major specialties — which makes this a true regional hospital. "There is no place like home." (Logansport /^Memorial ' '^- " reaching out with special care 1101 Michigan Avenue Logansport, IN 46947 (219) 753-7541 "PS: If my golf game doesn't improve as much as my hip, who can I blame?"
