Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Monday, March 28, 1988 Page? Fire Hits Salem SALEM, Ind. (AP) - Fire destroyed one business and damaged several others in a century-old block of Salem's historic Constitutional Square. A firefighter and a passer-by sustained minor injuries from the fire, which erupted shortly after noon Sunday in a section of seven businesses across the street from the Washington County Courthouse. Fire officials said the blaze apparently began in Vikki's Carpets and Accessories in the middle of the block and spread through a gap in a fire wall to the Salem Apothecary next door. Two other businesses, Farmers and Citizens Bank and Armstrong's Hardware, were damaged by smoke and water as were two law offices, including those of state Rep. Frank Newkirk Jr., D-Salem. About 80 firefighters from six departments fought the fire nearly six hours as flames gutted the carpet store and two apartments in the same building. It tunneled through false ceilings into the unoccupied second floor of the pharmacy, creating dense smoke. "At some time there was an opening knocked in the fire wall, and then it was boarded back up," said Salem Assistant Fire Chief Bob Wilder. "There was a lot of fire that got into the pharmacy that never should have got in." Many of the town's business Firefighters watch the smoldering remains of businesses in downtown Salem people were at a trade fair in the elementary school when word arrived the block was on fire. Several townspeople helped remove computers, records and furnishings from the apothecary and the bank. "The whole town just backed their trucks up here and got it out," said Philip Marshall, husband of pharmacist Rebecca Marshall, who bought the Salem Apothecary three years ago. The store's patient records were saved, Rebecca Marshall said, so she hopes to be back in business, possibly in another vacant store in the square, by Wednesday. "I dreamed for many years of having my own store," she said, her voice breaking. "I had a partner who moved on a couple of months ago, so for two months we had our own store. But we're going to have it again." Vicki Campbell made the same pledge as she looked at the Inmates Hope Music Changes The Direction Of Their Lives MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. (AP) Charles "Chuck" Nelson and James "Bongo" Allen may be the only two people who can boast that one of their original songs is being guarded in a safe in a governor's office. Rep. Mary Kay Budak, R- LaPorte, worked out the arrangement as a way of protecting the copyright on the carol written by the two Indiana State Prison inmates. Since 1982, the cassette has been among stacks of bills the Legislature approved and sent to Gov. Robert D. Orr. But the two prisoners hope someday their music will move from the Statehouse onto the airwaves. Both men believe "Why Only on Christmas?" could showcase what music director Charles E. Musgrave believes is the nation's only academic music school in a maximum-security prison. Budak, a strong supporter of education in the prison system, has sent the tape to country Indiana Judge Drove Off Interstate Ramp, Arrested INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -A Marion County judge police said drove his car off an interstate exit ramp was charged with public intoxication. Authorities said Superior Court Judge Thomas E. Alsip, 50, was brought to the lockup Sunday night and booked. He was released on his own recognizance. Court records show it was the second alcohol-related arrest for Alsip who pleaded guilty in 1985 to a misdemeanor charge of driving while intoxicated. Police said they found Alsip's empty car at 7:42 p.m. Sunday at the bottom of an embankment near the 38th Street exit of southbound Interstate 65. "Officers tried to locate the owner and saw a man standing on the next street over," said police Capt. Richard R. Crenshaw. "They questioned the man and found that he was intoxicated." Blood Detoxification System Developed WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - A West Lafayette medical company has developed a blood detoxification system some doctors call the light at the end of the tunnel for people with liver failure. The system, developed at Ash Medical Systems Inc., might become to liver patients what kidney dialysis is to kidney patients, doctors said. Dr. Stephen Ash, an Arnett Clinic nephrologist and chairman of the board and director of research and development for Ash Medical, said the new system should keep people alive while they await transplant. He said it also will detoxify people after serious drug overdoses, might give livers the time needed to regenerate and has uses for people with liver cancer who are awaiting a liver transplant. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has just approved the Ash system for clinical tests on patients. If all goes well, the company could begin marketing the system nationwide in about a year,Ash said. The potential U.S. market is estimated at $500 million. Judge sworn In For Federal Bench In Indiana HAMMOND, Ind. (AP) — Rudy Lozano has been sworn in as a U.S. District Court judge in the Northern District of Indiana. Sen. Richard G. Lugar, R-Ind., administered the oath to Lozano Sunday during a special court session presided over by Allen Sharp, chief judge of the Northern District. Lozano's mother, Benedicta, held the Bible for the swearing in. Lozano, who lives just outside Valparaiso, received his judicial commission, signed by President Reagan, from Joseph A. Morris, a Justice Department official and a northwest Indiana native. Lozano, 45, the youngest of five sons, was born at the East Chicago home of his father, a Mexican-born steel worker, and his Mexican-American mother. "If anyone had asked me a year or so ago if I could imagine myself to be in such a position, I would have scoffed," said Lozano, addressing the packed courtroom. Reynolds Bank To Merge With Lafayette Bank REYNOLDS, Ind. (AP) — Merger plans have been announced by the Bane of Reynolds and Lafayette Bancorporation. If shareholders and regulatory agencies agree, Lafayette Bancorporation would operate two wholly owned subsidiaries, Lafayette Bank and Trust Co. and Bank of Reynolds, officials said Saturday. music singer Johnny Cash and to other country-western music producers. Musgrave handed a copy to Loretta Lynn several years ago when she performed here, where her brother-in-law is still an inmate. Singer and actor Vic Damone also has a copy, as does prison evangelist and former Watergate figure Charles Colson. "It's a beautiful song," says Budak, who first heard the tune at a concert put on by the inmates.

Study Groups For Assembly Gearing. Up INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indiana General Assembly will soon begin a summer ritual some believe the state could do without — legislative study committees. Committees will consider issues such as the possibility of a high-speed train linking Chicago, Indianapolis and Cincinnati, impact of violence on Indiana campuses and prospects of mandatory motor vehicle inspections. These three topics are among 79 proposed by lawmakers for review by study committees this year. While some view the study committees as an important part of the legislative process, others believe the system needs to be reformed. "I think the way they are set up now, they are a waste of time and taxpayers' money," said Rep. Thomas D. Coleman, R- New Castle. The summer-to-fall study committee process often shapes legislation lawmakers will consider during the next session. Later this spring, the Republican-dominated Legislative Council will decide which subjects will be examined by the 16 statutory study committees that meet each summer. The committees cost between $300,000 and $400,000 a year. In addition, the Legislative Council traditionally has set up eight to 10 ad hoc or interim committees to study other topics. Advertisement p^ • Device may BOSTON - National Fueisaver Corp. of Boston has developed a simple automotive accessory that increases gas mileage by 22%. The Gasaver, which takes only 10 minutes to install, releases microscopic quantities of platinum into the air-fuel mixture entering the engine. Platinum has the unique ability of making unburnt fuel burn. With platinum in the flame zone, you increase the percentage of fuel burning in the engine from 68% to 90%. Normally, that 22% of the fuel would only burn i f it came in contact with the platinum coated surfaces of a catalytic converter. Unfortunately, this converter process takes place increase gas mileage by 22% outside of the engine, where the energy produced is lost. With the Gasaver dispensing platinum into the combustion chambers, 22% more of each gallon burns inside the engine so that 22% fewer gallons are required to drive the same distance. The process works on both leaded and unleaded gasoline, and meets the emission standards of all states. In concluding the government's five-year administrative procedure studying the Gasaver, the Federal Court stated: "National Fueisaver Corp. and various independent parties have used a variety of methodologies to test the value of Gasaver. These in- dependent parties often make stronger claims for the Gasaver than does its developer, National Fueisaver Corp." The government had already confirmed in 1984 that the Gasaver raises the octane of gasoline, eliminating the need for premium fuel. Joel Robinson, the developer, commented: "We've already sold over 100,000 Gasavers. Ironically, we find more people buy the Gasaver for its third, benefit of cleaning out carbon to extend engine life than buy it for its fuel savings or octane boosting."
