Gen. Henry W. Slocurn write dutifully in a monograph] for the guidance of officers who.may in the future be charged with this important duty." The "particular time" to which ' he referred was November, 1864, with Sherman's army cutting through Georgia from Atlanta toward the Atlantic.. Slocum's military responsibility had been reversed in a matter of months. Earlier in 1864, with his old roommate at West Point, Sherman, driving for Atlanta, Slocum's force was charged with guarding the Nashville & Chattanooga R.R. against Confederate de stroyers and keeping it operating. Now, as commander of Sherman's left wing (XIV and XVII Corps), Slocurn was charged with wiping out the Confederate East-West rail links through Georgia, Slocurn set up a schedule under which 5,000 men, Working systematically in five equal gangs,, destroyed five miles of track­ age a day. Ties had to be burned—some as fuel for heating rails red hot to be .twisted around trees like doughnuts; roadbeds torn up; trestles and bridges felled; "cuts" had to be closed with explosives. The idea was to make anything impossible to reclaim through any ordinary repair work. Slocurn astutely fortified the morale of his elite wrecking crews by directing his commissary department to round up substantial breakfasts — turkeys, chickens, eggs, ham — to keep them going at the directed pace.. —CLARK KTNJJAIRD "Railway destruction as a military art" was caption of this sketch of a regular detail of the Sherman inarch to sea. Distributed by King- Features Syndicate '64 Weather May Be Driest Ever In State INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) — Autumn of 1963 went down in the Indiana weather record books as the driest in history. But don't be surprised if 1964's fall season breaks those year - old marks. Of course, a good toad-tran- gler could come along on short notice anytime between now and Nov. 30, and any Hoosier interested in the public welfare hopes it will. However, all indications in the long-range outlook of the weather bureau point to sub-normal precipitation this month, and already in the first 11 days of November the total was zero. t ,. For records purposes, let's include August with the September-through - November period and let's browse back through 93 years of official records. Last year we had 2.22 inches of^rain at Indianapolis in August, followed by .24 in September and an all-time record low of .17 in October. November's 2.18 improved the situation and the four-month total was 4.81 inches, lowest ever recorded in the August-through - November period. The nearest thing to that was in 1908, when four months of rain totaled 4.94. In 1897, total for August, September and October was only 1.66 inches. Then the clouds opened up in November for 6.87 more inches. • This year's August rainfall was the fifth • smallest in 93 years of record. The September total ranked as 15th smallest, and October was 10th smallest. The record year of 1908 was followed by low precipitation totals in December and January. Driest year in Indianapolis was 1934, when only 2.497 inches fell. Wettest year was 1876, when 57.65 inches were recorded.

Buckeye GL 9-*0M Monday to Thursday Woman's World By GAY PAULEY UPI Women's Editor NEW YOR K(UPI) —The horse show is the one sport in which women can compete on a par with men. . "That's because riding is a test of skill, not of strength," said Kathy Kusner, of Arlington, Va., a champion horsewoman at 24 and a rider since she got a pony at the age of 10. Miss Kusner, a wisp of a girl weighing "about 100 pounds" has been called by one sportswriter "probably the greatest woman equestrian since Lady Godiva." She's been adding to her honors, and to the stables for which she rides, these last eight days at the 81st annual National Horse Show at Madison Square Garden, where she was the only woman on. the eight - member U.S. equestrian team. She took the individual riding title and helped to power the U.S. team to victory. Now, Miss Kusner goes to Toronto for a show Nov. 15-23 inclusive, which will make her "10th or 15th show this season." . Skill Counts "I've not kept count of how many I've been in," she said during an interview while she stoked upon orange juice, eggs, toast, jam and coffee. "Being a girl makes no difference in riding," said Miss Kusner (pronounced Kuss-ner). "There's no reason for a man to have better control of a horse. Skill's what counts. It's like in chess." Miss Kusner, a pretty brunette, has been a stable buff since she can remember. "I've always thought horses were the greatest," she said. "Just as boats send some people." Her father, Joseph H. Kusner who works for the government munitions board in Wash ington and has an optical and high precision instrument company also in the capital, gave her a pony named Champ when she was 10.

NATIONAL WINDOW By LYLE WILSON United Press International The sad, bad news for Vice President-elect Hubert H. Humphrey is that there is another Kennedy in his future. That is a dismal prospect for a politician who finally is warranted in expecting one day to occupy the White House as president of the United States. ' ' , President Johnson already has annointed Humphrey as his proposed successor. He told the Democratic National Convention last August that he had picked HHH as his vice presidential, mate because he and others regarded Humphrey as best fitted for the presidency if something happened to Johnson. LBJ was thinking of the succession if he died in office. But the realities are not abused if it is assumed that Johnson regards Humphrey as his successor under all circumstances. ' Johnson is eligible under the Constitution's no-third-term amendment to be re-elected in 1968. Humphrey's chance would come in 1972 when he would be 61 years old and Sen-elect Robert <F. Kennedy of Massachusetts and New York would be in his mid-forties. The feeling persists that Kennedy's 1964 carpet-bagging invasion of New York state was a first move toward a presidential candidacy. Scorns Suggestion Kennedy appears to scorn that suggestion. . But, consider his words when he appeared on election night . at Democratic headquarters in New York to accept congratulations. "We have a mandate," he said, "to continue what we started four years ago" and he closed with a couple of borrowed lines: " 'Come, my friend. It's not too late to build a better world.'" | : 'J ' It is not necessary to be aware of the ambition that sparks the Kennedys to read into those remarks a purpose to go far beyond the U.S. Senate. It is too much to believe that even a Kennedy would buck Inside Indiana (Continued from page 1) ! Mankin's drawback is that he is anathema to Terre Haute iMayor Ralph Tucker, who was i a pioneer supporter of Gov.-elect Roger D. Branigin. Lyndon Johnson for ' the 1968 Democratic presidential nomination. He wouldn't dare. But Kennedy could be expected to buck Humphrey' - in ,1972. •Lyndon Johnson would not like that. LBJ is an imperious man. The word means commanding, lordly, arrogant, domineering — and all fit. It is not Johnson's nature happily to observe the building of a Kennedy power complex in the East with brother Bob in New York state arid brother Ted in Massachusetts. He did not happily observe the super-charged campaign to obtain the vice presidential nomination for Robert Kennedy. When the time came, LBJ flicked Kennedy out of the contest as casually as he would squash a fly. And that didn't make RFK happy, either. ''So there is some.background for any political struggle hat may develop between the Johnson-Humphrey forces and the Kennedy clan. : Humphrey's prayers must be that history does not repeat. The man from Minnesota in I960: had assem bled the whole left wing of the Democratic party behind his ambition to be nominated for president. Big labor was there, Americans for Democratic Action. Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt seemed friendly to Humphrey's plan, at least she was against Adlai E. Stevenson. And up popped John F. Kennedy to rub Humphrey's nose . in defeat. Now HHH is .all set again and up pops another Kennedy to disturb his dreams and, maybe to derail his plans. STORK KEPT BUSY INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) — The delivery room wore rubber tires Wednesday and one delivery "assistant" wore a blue uniform as two new Indianapolis residents made their appearances in the world.

The records indicate they do not. The lone exception was last winter when the dry aa tumn was followed by 7.8 inches of snow in December, 9.2 inches more in January, and a winter's total of more than 27 inch es. The winter following the; dry 1897 autumn produced ohly''12.3 inches of snow, and that following the 1908 dry fall only ,15.9 inches of snow. And after that driest year in 1934, snowfall measured only 6.2 inches.
