Hutchinson News Thursday, Sept. 13, 1973 Page 8 ^ . (Hutchinson News-UPI Telephoto) TWO WORLDS — A group of Amish visiting San Diego this Later, one of the men took off his shoes and waded in the water, week from Indiana took a long look at a surfer at Ocean Beach. ^j^2f|Q Give details at Anthony West 'Water management, a modern-day term for irrigation, doesn't always work according to plan. Last week about 100 farmers boarded open trucks to take part in Sherman County's irrigation tour near Goodland. Mother Nature's own irrigation system up-staged the tour by putting a full-force display into operation. The driving rains sent farmers indoors for discussions on more predictable irrigation techniques. • What the worst of Kansas' weather couldn't do, vandals have done. But Lyons' eternal flame will burn again. The American Legions' flame in the town square has no fire in it, and what's more, parts are missing. The flame has prevailed through the worst elements Kansas can offer, but the battering from vandals finally took the toll. Legionnaire Tom Ramsey said, "It was in bad need of repair so we shut it off, took it apart, and it is now being worked on." The Legion hopes it will be lighted again in time for Rice County's Veteran Day celebration, Oct. 22. • "Little Vegas" bumper stickers have disappeared from most Great Bend cars, but now another Kansas town has taken up advertisement of its dubious distinction. Gypsum, a small and often- flooded Saline County community, has printed matchbooks inviting all to "visit the flood capital of the world." Details inside the cover of the matchbook inform readers that Gypsum has been served by independent businesses "interested in our people and crows' roosts." And on the back is an added note that the town is stocked with mosquitoes and proud and solid American citizens. • "Let it snow or let it blow." Rural telephone subscribers south of St. John won't care. Buried cable is being installed south of St. John. Rural areas north of there got the underground wiring a year ago. Subscribers will no longer need to fear loss of phone service due to wind or ice storms this winter. Service is also being changed from ten-party to four-party lines with no rate increase. In addition to protecting lines from storms, the underground system will also reduce static problems caused by lightning and moisture. Some Dodge Citians think the city's plan for changing water rates and financing procedure is all wet. Some have reported increases well over 100 per cent because of the hot weather during July and August. Others have witnessed no significant hike in their bills. Reasons for this variance in amount of bills, which was as much a shock to some as a bucket of cold water in the face, are complicated according to city manager Leland Brodbeck. Complicated or not, water patrons are boiling. • McPherson city commissioners recently approved the purchase and installation of new doors for the fire station. It was big of them — but even bigger is the city's new fire truck, which could not be squeezed through the old doors. The ordered fire truck is 11 feet tall and the present door's clearance is 10 feet, 10 inqhes. ANTHONY — Harper County Attorney Carl A. Fleming released the first report Wednesday on the suspected murder of an 80-year-old rural Anthony man. Albert Metz, a former instructor at Kansas State University, was found dead on the front porch of his farm home last Thursday. Rock Island hearings set TURON — The Kansas Corporation Commission has set up "affirmative" and "opposition" meetings in Turon and Arlington next month to discuss' an application made by the Rock Island Railroad. The company has asked for authority to serve its stations in Arlington, Langdon, Turon and Preston on a "request of patrons" basis through its agent in Hutchinson. A hearing will be at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 10, at the railroad station in Turon for the purpose of hearing affirmative testimony and evidence in support of the application. A hearing will be held at 1:30 p.m. on the same date at the railroad station in Arlington for the purpose of hearing testimony and evidence in opposition to the application. Most of the details had been learned earlier from other sources while Fleming remained silent. The body was badly decomposed and ravaged by animals. Dr. J. F. Duffy performed an autopsy and discovered a bullet in the victim's skull. According to the release, there was no gun found near the victim. The case is being investigated as a homicide by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation. Lifts tractor to free worker ROME, Maine (UPI) —A six foot, 200 pound teen-ager lifted a 3,000 pound tractor with his bare hands Tuesday to free a trapped farm worker. Kennebec County investigator Leo Bazinet said Arthur Hinkley, 18, heard the screams of Lloyd Bachelder, also 18, who was pinned in the seat of the vehicle when it tipped over while Bachelder was attempting to lift a junked car. Hinkley, who was working on the Bachelder farm, somehow lifted the tractor enough for Bachelder to wriggle out. He was taken to a Waterville hospital where he was reported in good condition Wednesday with a fractured hip and internal injuries. McPherson event set McPHERSON — Recognition of McPherson County citizens and a program on immigrant migrations will highlight the 103rd Birthday Banquet of the County at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Eden Mennonite Church. Sponsored by the McPherson County Historical Society and Smoky Valley Historical Association, it is the fourth annual banquet. Of those honored at the event will be Edmund G. Kaufman, a native of the county, now living in North Newton. Elmer H. Goering, Moundridge, and William E. Juhnke, McPherson will discuss the immigration route of the Swiss- German Mennonites before they came to America. Included will be a talk on the immigration of 18,000 Ukranians and the Turkey Red Winter wheat they brought to the area. Sawyer (Thorn) has adventure SALINA (HNS) — Eight- year-old Thom Sawyer of Salina is trying to live up to the adventurous reputation on his almost- namesake. He slipped a washer on the middle finger of his hand, but couldn't get it off. Mommy had to take him to the fire station where firemen hacksawed the makeshift ring off. 2nd & Main COMPLETE PRESCRIPTION SERVICE Open 9-12 Sun.—8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Daily MO 2-4477 FREE Prescription Delivery Charge Accounts OUR BUSINESS BEGINS WITH FILLING PRESCRIPTIONS Tax Records Insurance Records NyQuil Nighttime Cough Medicine Reg. $1.59 Broxodent Electric Tooth Brushes Reg. $21.95 *11 Reg. $3.50 Ayds Reducing Candy $2 31 Brite Side Shampoo Reg. 99$ LEAVE YOUR FILMS HERE FOR BEST RESULTS A^PHOTO S/?ecsa£ COUPON^ 12 EXPOSURE K0DAC0L0R DEVELOPED AND PRINTED COMPLETE m ONLY* L PER C0UP0K TIB COM* MIST WWMI WW* , (COUPON VOID AFTER 9-19-73 Dermassage Medicated Skin Lotion Reg. $2.29 Lustre Creme apray Reg. 1.00 Bisodol Tablets Reg. $1.09 81" ^\ Colgate 100% V ^ Mouthwash 4, jj g> Reg. $1.29 4 Palmolive Shave Cream Reg. 1.49 FOREST GLADE BARK Acts as a beneficlent mulch while providing forest-like beauty. 3 cu. ft. bag covers approx. 36 sq. ft. 1" deep.
