HAROLD J. BURTON' ARCHI72S ASSIS.TA I li DIA !i A STATE LI Ii-5DIA:-L1?OLI3,: I?1DII ENTERED AS SECOND CLASS MATTER OCTOBER"4, 1895 AT POST OFFICE AT TIPTON. INDIANA VOLUME 69, NUMBER 19 TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE, MONDAY OCTOBER 26, 1964 7 CENTS PER COPY — 35 CENTS PER WEEK TWO TIPTON MEN DIE IN By HORTENSE MYERS United Press International INDIANAPOLIS (UPI)— One way of developing an experienced political campaign team is to grow one—and that is the method followed by Sen. Vance Hartke and his wife, Martha. The Hartkes have seven children ranging in age from 2 to 20 and all of them are seasoned campaign trail troupers. Blonde Martha, a native of Wayne County, met Vance when they were students at Indiana University and they were married in 1943. This campaign, she already has toured all 92 counties, asking voters to support her husband, the incumbent Democratic nominee for U.. S. Senate, i Ske did the same thing when' Hartke first was elected six years ago. | Knows Campaign Issues ' Martha discussed campaign issues knowingly with her audiences and does not hesitate to answer questions from reporters and voters. She and Vance were put in the position once of seeming to contradict each other in their replies to questions about Bobby Baker but she quickly smoothed the matter over. In her speeches, she directly attacks her husband's Republican opponent, State Sen. D. Russell Bontrager, s ometime with more warmth than her husband. Martha, ""a former school teacher, began her political career as a precinct vice- committeeman in Evansville and was credited by politicians as contributing greatly to his election as mayor there. In addition to her campaign talks, Martha supervises the activities of their children. She is aided this campaign by 20-year- old Sandra, now Mrs. Larry Schott, who with her husband has been staying at the Hartke home in Falls Church, Va., much of the time her mother was in Indiana. , All on Train Tour All nine Hartkes expect to be on a whistle-stop-campaign trip Oct. 28 which is scheduled to leave New Albany at 7 a.m. and wind up in Hammond at 3:15 p.m. The possible exception is 16-year-old Wayne, whose high school football coach may put his foot down on further absences. Wayne joined President Johnson's daughter Luci when she campaigned in Indiana and has contributed in other ways to his father's campaign. He plays a guitar and sings at some gatherings, hoo.tenanny fashion, and earlier this campaign dedicated a North Vernon swimming pool by swimming across it in a special ceremony. Jan, 18, a student at Indiana University, has less* trouble in making speeches in the Hoosier state since he already is on the scene. Both he and Wayne have given more political speeches than they" can count. .' Keith, 13, and Pau, 10, may be a little young for formal speeches, but they often put . bumper stickers on cars during political rallies. Little Ones Shake Hands Four-year-old Anita and Nadine, 2, emulate their mother and father by lining up at the rear of a political meeting and shaking hands with well-wishers as they come and •go. In fact, about the first hand President Johnson shook when he stepped off his plane during an Indianapolis rally recently was. that of Anita. The young Hartkes would be in Indiana, more. often campaigning, but tXeir parents are concerned lest they miss too much school. However, all have made several trips this campaign between Washington and Indiana -rbut never on the same This is « rufe %>t' ihe 'nard- campaigning Hartkes. Half of the family- will, be on one plane, and the other on a different craft when they make' these flights.

Indiana Gas Aids Schools Through Stove Donations Four of the very latest in modern gas ranges have been installed in the home economics department of the Academy of St. Joseph through the courtesy of Indiana Gas and Water Company. As explained by Robert L. Stemm, district manager, the new ranges replace older units previously donated by the gas company. "We regard our school range program as a real opportunity to acquaint home economic students with the latest developments in modern gas cooking equipment. We feel that the experience which' the students gain now will be helpful to them later." . Outstanding feature of the new gas range is the thermostatically controlled . top burner, aptly termed the "Burner-With-A- Brain." The "Burner-With-A- Brain" controls the heat of the cooking utensils and keeps its contents at a uniform cooking temperature, eliminating boil- over and scortching. Donation of the latest gas range models is a continuing program of Indiana Gas and Water Company throughout its entire service area to maintain up-to-date gas ranges in the schools.
