A ^HI'/SS ASSlSiAST ENTERED AS SECOND CLASS MATTER OCTOBER 4, 1895 AT POST OFFICE AT TIPTON. INDIANA VOLUME 69, NUMBER 45 TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 1964 7 CENTS PER COPY — 35 CENTS PER WEEK Thanksgiving Proclaimed By President JOHNSON CITY, Tex. (UPI) —Text of -President Johnson's Thanksgiving Day proclamation: Thanksgiving Day, 1964 By The President of the United States of America A Proclamation As the harvest season draws to a close and our storehouses bulge with the bounty of the land, it is our desire to observe, in the custom and tradition of our forebears, a special day dedicated to giving thanks to God—a day on which to lay aside our daily tasks 3nd cares and pay joyous homage to him. We are impelled to raise our voices in his praise and to proclaim our heartfelt gratitude for another year in which we have been blessed with a bountiful harvest, with intellectual, humanitarian, economic, scientific and technical advances and achievements, and with other gains too numerous to mention. / Although we have been blessed with unsurpassed prosperity, we. recognize that poverty and want exist throughoutj the world—even among us—and we pledge ourselves to the eradication of those evils. We know, too, that the foundation for a peaceful world is still to be built and that even now armed strife exists in < Manhattan, parts of the world* We are sad- Arguing for the elimination dened that gallant men of ounof old laws against extra- mari Bar Association Would Legalize Sex Deviation NEW YORK (UPI) — The New York County Bar Association Tuesday urged a drastic liberalization of state criminal statutes governing sexual behavior- The bar association recommended that adultery and discreetly-practiced homosexuality should no longer be considered crimes and that the age of consent for women in sex cases should be lowered from 18 to 16. The revisions in sex statutes were unged during public hearings^before the temporary state commission on revision of the penal law and criminal code.- The hearings were ordered on proposals to be put before the legislature which convenes in January. The New York County (Manhattan) legal society's recommendations were based on the supposition that sexual behavior of the individual is a moral rather than a Jegal problem. The bar association's proposals were presented to the commission by H. Richard Uviller, in assistant district attorney in armed services have fallen in the eternal quest for peace with freedom, dignity, and justice for all. We share with their bereaved families and friends a i sense of tragic loss.' In the words of Abraham Lincoln, we resolve "that these honored dead shall not have died in vain," and vow- that their loss will spur us ever onward until man's great dream of universal peace is realized. Yet we are filled with an in stinctive impulse to give thanks for —Our free society of free men, free institutions, and free elections; —Our freedom of speech, our freedom of the press, and our freedom to worship as our conscience dictates: —Our emphasis upon the dignity, equality, and worth of man; • —Our humanitarian instincts; —Our unalienable right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness;' —Our confidence in our ability to meet the challenges of today and of the future tal sex, Uviller said that although "there is a tradition of including adultery in the law, we suggest it is fantasy and unrealistic. He said laws against adultery and sodomy are unjust and largely unenforceable. The bar association said homosexual and deviate sex acts "privately and discreetly engaged in between competent and consenting adults" should not be considered criminal. State Supreme Court Justice Samuel H. Hofstadter immediately took exception to the association's position on homosexuality and deviant sex, saying the recommendations were tantamount to "legitimazing an abomination." In urging a lowering of the age of consent from 18 to 16. Uviller said: "It's extremely unrealistic in the state of New York to say that a girl of 17 doe,s not have the capacity to choose her course of action." Under present law, a man having sexual relations with a I girl under 18 is subject to pros- course. For'these are the things that.ecution for statutory rape, even set us apart as, a nation—that!if she 'consents to the inter- made our nation great—that 1 will keep our nation great. | So as our forefathers in Virginia, in New England, and throughout this land have done for more than three and one- half centuries, let us appoint a special day on which all of us, in keeping with the dictates of our own conscience, will give thanks to the Lord for his manifold blessings. And on that day, let us rededicate ourselves to meeting the challenges of the present with the fortitude and faith with which our forefathers met the challenges of the past. i Now, therefore, I, Lyndon B. Johnson, President of the United States of America, in consonance with the joint resolution of the Congress approved December 26, 141, 55 stat. 862 (5 U.S.C. 87B), designating the fourth Thursday of November in each year as Thanksgiving Day, do hereby proclaim Thursday, November 26, 164, as a day of national thanksgiving. On that -day, let us gather in our homes-and in our places of worship and in other suitable places to give thanks to God for His graciousness and His (Continued on page 6) Tribune Closed The Tipton Tribune will be closed and no paper will be published Thursday as it* employees observe the Thanksflvlns Day holiday.

Welsh appeals to clergymen throughout, the state to conduct church- sponsored traffic safety programs in keeping with the Christmas spirit of Peace and Good Will to all mankind. Speaking for this community, the Rev. Harold W. Davis, president of the Ministerial Association, commented, "I am certain that all our clergymen will want to lend their ^upport to this necessary endeavor. The element of moral responsibility is always a vital ingredient in a socially oriented way of life." Rev. Davis felt that all clergy would be challenged by the task of assuming a role of leadership in. making people aware of their responsibility for the health and welfare'of their fellowmen. In this season of the year, when the hearts of men are filled with the feeling of brotherly love, an effort should be made by everyone to transfer this "Christ-like" attitude over to the highway as a demonstration of true moral responsibility", the local pastor continued "When each person can translate the Golden Rule into the \yajr he drives,, our normally high accident rate can be decreased." The local leader of the clergy pointed out that the mark of a good citizen is consideration for the rights of others in the congested traffic of .today. The clergy of Tipton' join with all' efforts to make highway travel more safe for all citizens, and urge all the people to consider their moral responsibility for the safety of themselves and others.
