Tipton, Indiana. Telephone OS 5-2115 ROUND TOWN AND THE CLOCK With the Tribune by R. D. Maney We were not too surprised at the indifference regarding the Warren Report ... as evidenced here in Tipton. We sent a reporter to ask questions yesterday— to ascertain the reaction of the people toward the report. R T THE INDIFFERENCE can be traced, we presume., to the fact that much noise had been made over the matter . . . and people were perhaps a little tired of hearing it . . . and the actual account differed little from the news they had received from reading and viewing while the commission was in closed session. R T HOWEVER, we were surprised . . . and so was the reporter, by the actual lack of knowledge among some people, regarding.what the commission actually was . . . what they were doing, and the results of the findings. THE WORDS 'top secret" and 'classified information' have grown so commonplace in government these days, it is hardly possible to gather any information that can be studied . . . and a good firm opinion obtained. This is indeed a sad fact ... for if leads people to accept what is given them ... no matter how grave a situation may be—and iulls them to a sense of security that can only lead to indifference and apathy. R T PERHAPS WE HAVE been told ail that we possibly can be told . . . but the memory of past, actiens in government . . . that were guarded for years . . . until a public forgot . . . and accepted them with ; indifference . . . are still fresh in' many of our memories . . . cafv thjs be another? T R X THE REPORT . . . insofar as it went, was a good one, giving facts however that were well known by all who read and view. If tighter security is to be given .. . perhaps the time to start is now. You cannit ask for it on one hand . . . and not cooperate on the other! This of course is a matter for the President to decide himself ... or is it? After all—he is our President . . . and should respect the fact that we need a leader in this time of stress and peril . . . and certainly wish no more dastardly acts, that might, rob us of another! WHAT WOULD YOU THINK? IF YOU HEARD a man get up and state "nothing is either black or white, right or wrong. Everything is a little bit of everything. There are no absolutes; everything is relative. No man is wise enough to make decisions groups can decide. No one individual can take the responsibility." WELL—it seems that many . men in high places today—the so-called 'thought leaders' . . . have abdicated personal responsibility . . . and gone along with the crowd. R T ONE CANNOT DENY that we have a group in this country . . . not of one political faith necessarily, but men who belong to both parties . . . who pick candidates, and are the unseen bosses of the nation. That is—he cannot deny this—for he sees evidence of it almost daily—yet mostly at election time. R T MANY NOVELS are written about these men—many stories are told, yet the names are never mentioned. Well—to all of this .. . one might have only one answer . . . there is black and white, there is right and wrong, there is honesty . . . but it takes a little study to find that out— and most people are TOO BUSY and TOO PREOCCUPIED with the things of this world that are trivial—to find out the things which are ACTUAL. JAMES WHITCOMB RILEY TRADITIONAL CEREMONIES marking the 115th anniversary of the birth of the great Hoosier Poet, James Whitcomb Riley will be held at his old home in Indianapolis, 528 Lockerbie St., at 10 a.m. next Wednesday, October 7. THE GENERAL PUBLIC is invited to attend . . . we hope many school kids will be able to do so . . . in the city area of course. . RILEY WAS a true Hoosier. Born in Greenfield, Ind. with the home facing U.S: highway 40, near the center of the city. IT IS VERY appropriate that the children of public School No. 9 . . . will present a program; the program to be entitled: "It's a Glad-Glad-Glad- World," and Dr. George Davis former director of adult education at Purdue . . . will be guest speaker. He is an authority on Riley's work. R T THE HOME ON Lockerbie Street, a Victorian structure, should be viewed by all, at some time. Some 6,785 people visited the home during 1963, from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and twelve foreign nations. IF YOU CANNOT make the trip on Wednesday . . . you can always visit Tuesdays through Saturdays, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 4 p.m. ' WHY NOT? WE ALL REMEMBER well the works of this great Hoosier poet. Children were enthralled by his works. Why not recapture some of this for your children by making a visit ... the "Goblins '11 get cha if ya don't watch out!" ROUND THE COUNTY OBSERVED AT WINDFALL yesterday . . . near the post- office.

NATIONAL WINDOW By LYLE WILSON United Press International The American Good Government Society (AGGS) and the National Small Business Association (NSBA) have teamed up to put some money and muscle into the effort to reform the presidential Electoral- College. Each has budgeted $50,000 for the job. Sen. Karl E. Mundt, R-S.D., passes the word that petitions are being circulated in Delaware asking the state attorney general to challenge in federal court the method by which electoral votes are allocated. The system now is based on winner-take-all. Thus, when Richard M. Nixon won California in 1960 by a margin of less than 1 per cent of the votes cast he won all of the state's electoral votes. It was the same as though California had voted unanimously for him instead of giving John F. Kennedy almost half its votes. And when Kennedy in 1960 carried New York by a mere whisker he got all 43 New York electoral votes. Nixon got none. Asks How Many? "How.many of you think that is right," Mundt asked the Senate the other day. "How many of you think that is fair. The Electoral College system is inequitable, iniquitous, unjust. "The rotteness incorporated in the present Electoral College system comprises the tap root of all of the evils that plague the desires of free men to remain free in America today. "How many of you think that we can rescue freedom from the pressure groups of the metropolitan areas of this country with an unjust, unfair Electoral College voting system such as that? "I hope -that the state of Delaware will go through with its plan to carry into the federal court, within the next few months, a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the Electoral College system." But the winner-take-all aspect of the Electoral College is only a part of Mundt's objection .to the system. Electors run at- large in each state and each state has as many electors as it has members of Congress. For example: New York has l>43, two 1 senators and 41 repre- i sentatives. Delaware has three, I two senators and one member Wall Street Chatter NEW YORK (UPI) — Bache & Co. says the market's underpinnings remain strong and the firm continues to believe the next significant move will be on the upside. However, the firm feels that it is only normal that after a sustained rise as experienced by the market in the past 18 months that selectivity will take on more importance. Standard & Poor's says the- market's ability to advance to new all-time highs in the face of labor uncertainties must be regarded as encouraging. J. W. Sparks & Co. says that on the basis of last week's performance, the future upside potential was amply demonstrated. The firm continues to maintain its previously stated objective of 885-890 in the Dow-Jones industrial average. ' of the House. Each New Yorker votes for 43 electors; each Delawarian for three, of which Mundt says: "This is a system which grades an American's capacity to vote on his post office address and by accident of geography. The states should have this extra vote power but not the individual citizen." Accident of Geography Mundt calculated that one New York citizen would have about 14 times as much voting authority as another individual in Delaware purely by accident of geography. "We talk about civil rights," Mundt said. "What happens to the civil rights of the individual in Delaware?" That is the question AGGS and NAS want to raise with the U.S. Supreme Court in an effort to prove the Electoral College system unconstitutional. Another sparkplug in the movement is Hugh Matlock, director of the Electoral College Reform Committee (ECRC), PO Box 388, San Antonio, Tex! AGGS Secretary J. Harvie Williams recently wrote Matlock that: "A dramatic move of tremendous national importance for Electoral College reform is in the making. A suit will be brought in the U.S. Supreme Court against the 45 states that have more than one member of the "House in Congress. The Supreme Court has original jurisdiction." 1962 CHEVY 4 Dr. R. Htr.

CQOI Very Clean $07D COTTINGHAM AUTO SALES WINDFALL, INDIANA Television In Review By RICK-DU BROW United Press International HOLLYWOOD (UPI)'— Most of television's new entertainment series have arrived, and even the casual observer is probably aware of what they will offer, for the most part, in the season ahead: Sheer.escape ism. Sex. Wild adventure. lm- probable romance. And situation comedies, situation comedies, situation comedies. Yet to have their premieres are three more situation comedies this coming Monday on NBC-TV, and, on the same network in November, "Profiles in Courage," a series of dramas inspired by the book of the same name by President Kennedy. In addition, on Nov. 9, ABC-TV will introduce a new nightly program, "The Les Crane Show," which will compete head-on with NBC-T\Ts Johnny Carson. Yet it is already clear, as ex pected, that except for a relatively few promising dramas and some specials, the entertainment departments are accelerating the pace at which they are surrendering to the news and public affairs staffs virtually all claims to significance in the most massive communications medium ever devised. The escapism is stressed by more than the usual symptoms of bland, family .situation laugh­ ters, but even minor video escapist endeavors can have their moments. There are, for instance, the two new situation comedies about monsters, "The Addams Family" and "The Munsters," which at their best mock the conformity of the supposedly normal citizenry. There is wild adventure, apparently influenced by the Ian Fleming'books but without their style, in "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.," about a secret agent; "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea," about an atomic submarine in 1973, and "Jonny Quest," a cartoon series for youngsters. There is improbable romance in "The Rogues," about a family of charming international crooks, and in "Mr. Broadway," which deals with a glamorous New York press agent. There is sex in the twice- weekly "Peyton Place" nighttime soap opera, which looks like a popular smash. Am, at least to this viewer, there seems to be more robust smooching going on during prime hours than in some time. Among the dramatic entries, "Slattery's People," in which Richard Crenna plays a state legislator, has much promise, but may well run into ratings trouble. "The Reporters," which may also have ratings problems, is an action series that employs, almost incidentally, a newspaper background—which is really asking for trouble. I enjoyed the opener—I apparently was distinctly in the minority among the critics—but like most alleged newspaper series, this one also seems certain to be called on the carpet because the running star gets involved in the action whereas most reporters are mainly observers.

Which, everything considered, figures. Cities and suburbs are natural enemies, like the hyperaspis trilineata "and the trionymus sacchari, better known as the lady beetle and the mealybug. And you know how they are. Or if you don't the, Agriculture Department does. "Lady beetles seem to have a lifelong.taste for the mealy­ bug," the department says. "Adult beetles attack adult mealybug crawlers and eggs from under the mother mealy­ bug. Being small and flat, beetle larvae are-ideally suited for maneuvering in such close quarters. RADIANT HEATING Korean noblemen taught the lesson of radiant heating at fawt..1,000 .years...before Troy fell to the Greeks. They built "Spring Rooms" in their homes. Fires were burnt in their hollow Jfo masonry floors,- and the atmos- pherewas^ spring-like even on i cold, damp days.' The ancient Romans heated their bathhouses in much the same way. You can still see examples of this "hypocaust" system at the baths of Caracalla in Rome' and at the Roman baths, in Bath,' England. The big difference in- radiant heating nowadays is that tough butt- welded sleel pipe is used instead of hollow masonry sections. Pre-formed panels of steel pipe are embedded in the floors, walls, or ceilings of our modern buildings. The hot water circulated through this sturdy pipe assures an ideally comfortable indoor climate. "Like the mealybugs, the lady beetles prefer the space under, the tight - leaves or sheaths of the cane plant as a habitat. Thus they are in the right place at the right time to inflict maximum damage. . ." If you can think of lady beetles as suburbanites, and mealybugs as city dwellers, then you can grasp a situation that has arisen here in historic old Georgetown, the capital's most famous habitat.. Old Georgetown's .narrow, tree-lined streets .are about the only places near the. downtown area where free, unrestricted parking is still permitted! . Like city dwellers, .suburbanites prefer a parking space that is free and unrestricted. Every morning hordes of.commuters from the Maryland - anH Virginia suburbs descend upon old Georgetown hoping to be in the right place at the right time to find a vacant spot. Being small and flat, suburbanites are ideally suited for maneuvering in such . close quarters. Thus they are able to inflict maximum parking. Once their autos are ensconced at the curb, they take a bus to-<work. Meanwhile, if a' Georgetown resident tries to find' a parking place near his home, he is generally out of luck. Not long ago, the Citizens Association of Georgetown formed a committee to study ways of counteracting the invasion. A report is due in about two weeks. The" mealybugs could resolve the .conflict quickly by striking the lady beetles in their most vulnerabe spot. Which is a traffic jam. ' If a few mealybugs deliberately stalled their, cars at strategic intersections during the morning rush hour, it would immobilize thousands of lady beetles and soon bring them to their knees. But that is the ultimate weapon, almost too horrible to contemplate. Peacemakers are seeking a more humane solution. Like maybe a duel. Volkswagens at 50 paces.
