On the first anniversary night of the big blast, blamed on liquid petroleum gas illegally used in the concession area of the barn-like show structure, the Coliseum was open to the public for ice skating. The 1964 edition of the Holiday on Ice show opens a seven -dia oylnc ehso osnpwnaes'ee-v day stand there Nov. 9, just 10. days later than it did last year. One Still In Hospital Sixty-two persons were "killed outright or died before' midnight on that dark evening in 1963. Hospitals were crammed full of injured, and before many weeks had passed the death toll had climbed to 74, with a 75th victim's death blamed on a heart attack the following April after four sojourns in hospials for treatment of severe injuries. While the anniversary brought sad memories to many, it was a day of joy for Mrs. Jacob Behle, 62, Indianapolis. 'Mrs.. Behle was expected to be released from Methodist Hospital where she has been confined ever since the explosion, the last of the injured to leave a hospital. Tipton Comman, dery No. 52 K. T.

David Burkhart, Indianapolis landscape contractor, whose wife and daughter Barbara, 8, were killed, and Gwen Braselton, Evansville, who lost four relatives in the blast, were .married last Aug. 15. They met at a birthday party for a 10-year-old girl survivor. The damage to ' the building has long since been repaired, and the Coliseum has been on a "business as usual" basis for months. But the effects of the tragedy on the personal lives of thousands of persons remained. .About 150 damage suits involving claims for more than $15 million remain unsettled in courts. 6 Under Indictment . Six men are under indictment by a Marion County grand jury in connection with, the blast, among them the state fire marshal who was charged with failure to inspect the premises to see if safety regulations were properly carried out. The section of box seats,where all the casualties occurred was one of the choicest, and some of the victims picked their locations with this in mind. Some went to theice show to avoid being home to answer the doot* innumerable times for Halloween "trick or treaters." If the show had started on time, most of the victims would have departed by the time the gas blew up. It was 15 minutes late getting under way, and the skaters were performing their last number when it happened. The finale was a thing of grace and. beauty that turned, into a frightful nightmare that will forever haunt the thousands who viewed it and lived. I Pa VOTE Pa KENNEDY PLAZA GEONA.

However, she was not poisoned as a result of her experience. | .Many people get seed-pods and heads ajnd dye them to make beautiful ornaments. Common among those that are so used are cattail, teasel and foxtail grass! Teasel was always rare here and cattail was never common, but if anyone wants a few thousand heads, of giant foxtail, I -will be glad to donate them, provided they don't shake out the seeds before they takje them away! I was in a house last week in another county where the wife had ornamented her dining room with | plant from trie Clematis family, which is properly cafted jvirgins Bower. Its seeds are surrounded by a loose, white) fuzzy stuff that looks so light and frail that it is very attractive. It somewhat resembles, the effect that may be seen oh the so-called "smoke tree." j ' On the 26th, I saw a snake about a foot long crawling around the | foundation of a house, and.this was a very seasonal thing for this snake to do. It was hunting a place to hibernate and has, undoubtedly by this time, found a way to get under the house and stow away for the winter. It was only a foot long, bujt was probably an adult, for it was a "Little brown snake" (DeCays snake) and they .don't ]get much longer than that. These little snakes are not commonly seen hereabouts, but they are thrifty and seem to get along in area where other jsnakes are scarce. Snakes are reptiles and have cold blood. | A f r e ez e that would'nt bother most warm blooded creatures, will kill a snake, and so when they hole up, it should be in a place where the freezing, if any, is very light. They seek refuge from the winter un;ler buildings, in groundhog holes and in the hollow, rpots of trees. A few years ago while scattering a large pile of leaves that had been blown jogether at one corner of the barn, I flipped out a snake. I don't believe that it could have survived the winter there, so I probably did it a favor <, by rousting it out so that it could find a better place. Negligence in selecting hibernation sites probably accounts for more loss qf snakes than any other thing, J for few people kill snakes anymore - in fact few people see jsnakes, mostly because they {aren't looking for them. There at least fourteen : species of snakes that might be seen in Tipton County, but none of them are! common, and none are posionbus or otherwise harmful. fca VOTE 5a KokctnoWins (Continued from page 1) John O 'Rpilly scored three times to lead Fort Wayne Lucrs over Fort Wjayne Central. 27-19.
