STATE LIBRARY INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA ENTERED AS SECOND CLASS MATTER OCTOBER 4, 189S AT POST OFFICE AT TIPTON, INDIANA VOLUME 69, NUMBER 18 TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 24, 1964 . 7 CENTS PER COPY —35 CENTS PER WEC; NATION PAYS FINAL TRIBUTE TO HOQV Peru Preps For Tipton In 42-0 Triumph Friday By BOB GATELY United Press International INDIANAPOLIS (UPI)— Indiana's top 10 high school football teams seemed virtually certain to be shaken up today in the wake of top-rated South Bend St. Joseph's fall from the ranks of perfect record elevens. St. Joe, riding a 12-game winning streak and rated first in the state by the UPI board of . coaches since the season began, fumbled away its chances Friday night and had to settle for a 13-13 tie with eighth-ranked South Bend Washington. It was the second tie for Washington wsich is also unbeaten. St. Joseph's, leading 13-7 midway, through the final period, seemed to have the victory all locked up when a blocked punt gave the Saints the ball on the Washington 15. In three plays they moved to the six and then halfback Mike Luzhy drove to the three where he fumbled. The ball rolled into the end zone and Washington quarter back Tom Majewski fell on it for the automatic touchback. It took Washington five plays to get to its own 32 and then halfback Mel Phillips passed 28 yards to end George Johnson on the St. Joseph 40. Another pass fell incomplete but iPhil- lips then hit Johnson in the ned zone for the tying touchdown. Larry Gillen's extra point try was wide. Elkhart Wins Easily Mike -Franger scored one touchdown on a one-yard sneak and booted three extra points to lead third-ranked Elkhart to an easy 21-0 victory over Mishawaka. . A _ . And Steve Vessell scored twice to lead seventh - ranked Evarisville Reitz' to a 14-7 victory over South Central Conference champion Columbus. One other member of the top 10 ran into trouble Friday night as East Chicago Washington kept its Northwest Conference hopes alive with a 14-7 victory over ninth - ranked Hammond, the defending conference champ. The loss knocked Hammond out of contention for the title and left Washington with a velt is also unbeaten in the conference with one game left. Wallace already has clinched at least a tie for the title with a 6-0 Iague record. Terre Haute Schulte, paced by fullbackrMike Harris, virtually wrapped up the Western Conference title with a 26-6 victory over city ; foe Wiley. It was Schulte's seventh victory of the season and its sixth in conference play. Harris scored the first two Schulte touchdowns on short runs and also ran for a pair of extra points. Hentgen Leads Peru John Hentgen scored three touchdowns on runs of 35, 50 and 92 yards to lead Peru to a 424) victory over Maconaquah. Denny Hunt booted six extra points for the Tigers to run his string of successful conversions to 16 in a row. Terry Sutton's three touchdowns led Wabash over Manchester, 42-0, and John Pata- luch scored three in. LaPorte's 21-6 victory over Michigan City. And Rick Deahl scored three in a losing cause as Fort Wayne North edged Fort Wayne Catho(Continued on Page 6) Minor Damage in Auto Mishap Minor damage resulted ' Friday afternoon when two cars collided at the intersection of Railroad and Mill streets in Tipton. xhe mishap occurred at about 1 p.m. when a car southbound on Mill collided with •oae< eastbound on Railroad . .'street Mabel M. Harlow, 76, of Route 1, Kempton, driver of the southbound vehicle, told police she had looked before entering the intersection but did not see the approaching auto. Driver of the other car was James A. Knoblack, 46, of Kokomo. According to the State Trooper investigating the mishap, a number of large trees at the intersection apparently blocked iMrs. Harlow's view. Damage to Mrs. Harlow's auto was confined to a dented chance to tie Gary Wallace for j bumper guard. The impact fte crown if the Senators can' caused about $75 in damage to get by Hammond Tech and the left door and fender ofj East Chicago Roosevelt. Roose- the Knoblack car. Focal point of the new look at Liberty Baptist Church is the pair of aluminum crosses fashioned by a member of the congregation. The crosses were made from gutter spouts to help cut costs of the recent remodeling project at the church. New hardwood floors, a new ceiling, modern lighting, stained glass windows and sliding partitions are some of the interior improvements made during the project. Much of the work was done by members of the church. (TRIBUNE Photo-Engraving) Former Pastors To Attend Dedication at Liberty (Baptists The Liberty Baptist Church and its pastor, the Rev. Wendell P. Webster, invite all former members and friends to its rededication services on Sunday October 25, 1934 at 2 p.m. The activities of the day will include .he usual worship service with Sunday school hour at 9:30 a.m. and worship services at 10:30 p.m. A basket dinner will be served at 12 noon. - , The church is happy:to celebrate the re-dedication service. Less than a year ago inquiries were made concerning repairing and. remodeling the church. The moderator, Dale [Burton, appointed a building committee to draw up a proposal for the church's consideration. Serving ori the committee were Rev.; Webster, pastor; Darrell Stoops, chairman of the board of trustees; Joe Moulder, trustee; Francis Harlow, trustee; William Henderson, ex - trustee; Mrs. Dena Mae Floyd, treasurer; and Mrs. William Harlow. This proposal was voted on at the March business meeting. The proposal was unanimously 64 Olympic Games Over; Next Meeting In Mexico By LEO H. PETERSEN TOKYO (UPI) — Th costliest Olympic games in history came to a close today before an emotional throng -of 80,000 shortly after the final event of a 14-day athletic carnival in which the United States made its best showing since 1952. As the Olyrripic torch was extinguished and the Olympic flag lowered in the deepening twilight of an overcast day, the electric scoreboard flashed "sayanara" and then "meet again in Mexico in 1968." Emperor Hirohito, patron of the games, looked on from the imperial box and freuently saluted during the earlier parade under the floodlights while many of original 5,541 competitors marched past under the flags of their nations. Don Schollander of Lake Oswego, Ore., the 19-year-old * swim sensation who won two individual races and anchored two victorious American relay teams, carried the Stars and Stripes at the head of the TXS.i contingent. .Last to file in were the smiling athletes of the -host nation. The Japanese, attired in blazing red jackets and white trousers, were the only delegation that entered in perfoct marching order. Avery Brundage of Chicago, president of the International Olympic Committee, proclaimed the games officially closed send. ;i sai4,./i'Ji SSJlfropot*, the youth of all countries to assembV'foui 1 years 'from'' i now 1 , at Mexico' City, there" to celebrate with us the games, of r the Ifltt Olympiad;'* ^ *" France and Germany wonl TOKYO (UPI)—Medal stand- '/%M maAnlr. *\* r* 1 * . .... events today in equestian jumping. iPierre Jonguiere S Doriola, a 44-year-old Frenchman, won the individual gold medal and Germany won the team prize. Germany Gets Medal The team gold medal went to Germany with 68.50 points to 77.75 for France and 88.50 for Italy. , • iFor the Americans, the 1964 games brought both vindication and unexpected success. For the Russians, there was bitter its~aging athletes failed to withstand the rising pressure of other nations. The U.S. led Russia in gold medals, 36-30, for the first time since 1952. Russia led 4n total gold, silver and bronze medals for the third straight time but its narrow margin of 96-90 was a surprise. .Russia led the Americans at Rome, 103-71. Along the way, the U. S. regained the two sprint championships it lost at Rome with big Bob Hayes of Florida A. and M. winning the 100 meters and Henry Carr of Detroit flying through to victory in the 200. In addition, Bob Schul of Dayton, Ohio, and Billy Mills of Coffeyville, Kans., became the first American winners in history at 5,000 meters arid 10,000 meters respectively.

Immediately contracts were let to contractors and subcontractors along with bids from ether suppliers. Work began in May during which time the congregation worshiped at the Sharpsville-Prairie school lower audV ariura. "i'.ie congregation happily returned to the church house the last Sunday in August for services. The belfry was altered to-j comply with the architects specifications. All former masonry was • repaired and - window frames were replaced or repaired. The front entrance was redesigned and replaced. All masonry work on the walks and steps that leads to the entrance,was replaced where necessary and new white aluminum soffit- ing was installed to comply with specifications. New eve troughs and down spouts and necessary repairs on the roof were made. A new roof in the bell tower was installed. Two fifteen foot white alumi num crosses were placed on the east and south sides of the belfry.- These crosses are accented with spotlights focusing their beams upward on each cross. The main sanctuary was com pletely re-designed. An all new indirect flourescent lighting system was installed above a suspended ceiling. All the original solid white ° oak wood work which was donated to the church 40 years ago was removed and completely reworked, reinstalled and refinished. New oak flooring was installed over the choir section on the opposite side from the baptestry. A new chancel behind the pulpit area accented by a red drape and a worship center cross is the focal point of the pulpit area. Stained glass windows replac- 3d the frosted glass. Sanctuary ; urniture replacement includes all new pews, new choir furniture, new railing in front of the choir section, natural finish fold- ; hg doors, communion table, pulr •ait and clergy bench. All these furnishings are in contemporary design of light oak. A complete electrical system to replace the old was installed. Other lighting throughout the church was replaced or altered as necessary. A complete flour­ escent system was installed in the down stairs auditorium. Other improvements anticipated in the near future include tile floor in the basement, a speaker system, redecorating of walls in basement and tables and chairs for auditorium and class rooms. The complete program has been estimated by contractors at $30,000, a major part of the planning and labor involved in the. entire project has been donated. This has held the entire cost of the complete program to an absolute . minimum. Contract and sub contracts were let' for approximately - $19,500. At no' time will this program put the church;>in debt over $8,000. This has been accomplished due to donations, pledges and gifts. (Continued en pas* f) by GEORGE CLINE Winter must be on the way. On Wednesday I discovered a flock of thirty or more wild geese feeding in a corn field in the east end of Clinton County. The corn had been picked and Ikey were gobbling up the shelled corn that they could find on the ground. Since they were some distance from the road, I couldn't at first be sure that they were not tame geese .until I had gone nearer them; They then took to flight, circled and came -• down in an adjoining stubble field. I am sure that they went back to the corn field as soon as I had gone on down the road. • •• • Many, or perhaps all, of these were hybrid geese. One was tiearly all white and many had white necks or other whiteness on their bodies. They*.were most likely a cross between the blue %oose and the snow goose. The snow goose is nearly all white, and the blue goose is of a much lighter color than the Canada goose, which to most people is "the wild goose". The Canada goose has a black head, and neck with only a white stripe down the sides of the head and under the throat. They are said to keep pretty much to themselves and not to mix with other species. Other wild geese are the white fronted goose and the emperer goose, and then there are brants which look very much like geese. It is not uncommon to see a flock of wild geese in which certain ones have considerable white on them. However, if all ; n the flock have dark grey bodies and black heads, it is probably a flock of Canada Zeese. Another sign that summer is gone is the blooming of a plant that my mother always called 1 "farewell summer." It belongs to the aster family and is the one that can be seen to have small white flowers at this time of year. It dosen't start to bloom until summer is over, and does not seem to be effected by early frosts. The plants.are two to three feet tall with stiff erect stems and the flowers are in scattered heads as is characteristic of wid asters. There are said to be 250 species of wild asters in the U.S., but the one that we have that is most beautiful is the one' commonly called "wild purple aster," and it was not common here until some 2530 years ago. As soon as I first saw these, I picked several stalks and took them to my mother as a bouquet. Of course we soon found out that they were not any good as cut flowers, for they last only a day, or two. I thought no more about them until the next summer, when I found some growing in the orchard. I asked mother what she had done with the ones that I had given her and she said that she had thrown them onto a brush-heap in the orchard. I was greatly surprised to learn that they would reproduce? after this fashion—ripening the seed from the nourishment in 7 the stem—but learning' this to be true, I gathered others and tossed them about in the fence cor- (Continued from pas* *) Scientist Says China Can Be No. 3 Power " WASHINGTON (UPI) — Nuclear scientist Ralph E. Lapp believes Red China can begin producing hydrogen bombs in j about two years, possibly becoming in time the world's No. 3 nuclear power after the United States and Russia. Britain now is the third power in terms of • atomic arms 'with France fourth. Lapp estimated present Chinese atomic bomb capacity at about one a month. He made the statements in an interview Friday with United Press International. > Lapp worked in the U.S. atomic weapons program during World War II. For years he has been one of the nation's most articulate students of nuclear affairs. Both the Atomic Energy Commission and- the Defense Department have described the tset device detonated by China Oct. 16 as a primitive' bomb [comparable to those exploded by the United States in 1945. Questions Delivery System Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara has expressed doubt that any airplanes possessed by | carry bomb as heavy and bul- iky as the one tested. | Lapp was not comforted by this. The first A-bomb used by the United States in World War II was a "crude device." It iwas 10 feet long and 2-1-3 feet in diameter, and weighed 4V6 tons. | But a B-29, itself a "crude device'.' compared to modern bombers, managed to deliver it on target, Lapp said. This bomb which actually was considerably more primitive in. its triggering than the Chinese device, wiped out Hiroshima. . The impressive thing .about the Chinese bomb, as Lapp and many other atomic experts see it, is that, its material was uranium-235 produced in a so-called gaseous diffusion plant. - r Technical Skill There are only about seven of jthese plants in the world, and the seventh — in 'France — is not yet in operation. Few other industrial operations demand as much precision and technological skill. They are' far more costly to install than the atomic reactors which produce plutonium-239 the only other A-bomb material yet to be manufactured in quantity. A country capable of building a gaseous diffusion plant, Lapp said, can be expected, to possess the skill to manufacture a deliverable - bomb out of the material it produces. And a country which has the electrical power to operate gaseous diffusion plants also can go into the business, of producing from ordinary water the heavy hydrogen which is another ingredient of H-bombs. Lapp concluded that the Chinese, if they wish to do so, can. pile up enough lithium-6 and heavy hydrogen for an H-bomb test in 1966-67,. a couple of winters hence. And if Russia should resume nuclear collaboration with China, the interval could be considerably shortened.

The accident ocurred at 1:45 p.m. as Joseph D. Caylor, 20, of 416 Wes.t Washington Street, Tipton, started to pull his car from a parking space along the siuewalk. Cay.or's auto struck the rear of one driven by Richard Harrison, 55, of 331 Creen Street. The Harrison car then struck the rear of a parked vehicle belonging to Enoch F. Nation, 45 of 525 West Jefferson ' : .reet. Damage to the left front fender, hood, bumper, headlight and grille of Caylors car is estimat ed at $250.
