HAROLD J. BURTON ARGKIV33 -A33ISTAS INDIANA STATS, LISR' ISDIA3&P0LIS,. INDI xpxmx ENTERED AS SECOND CLASS MATTER OCTOBER 4, 1895 AT POST OFFICE AT TIPTON. INDIANA VOLUME 69, NUMBER 54 TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1964 7 CENTS PER COPY — 35 CENTS PER WEEK KILLED NEAR NOBLESVILLE FRIDAY Blue Devils Down Bum's For First Conference Win Snaking Burris up with a press that shifted from man-to-man to | a zone during the first quarter i and sparked by Bonnie Curnutt's ! 7 for 9 field goal snipping. Tip- 1 ten sprinted imo a 25-9 lead in the opening eight minutes and he;d on the remaining three quarters for a 7G-GG victory. The triumph was Tipton's third cf the .«"asori ..without a loss .and gave the Blue Devils a 1-0 record in the Central Indiana Conference, lor jviiiicic it was their first lo;s of !he season after three straight victories and gave them an 0-1 in the CIC. Trailing by 1G points as the second . quarter opened, the Owls put up a much better bat- tie i:i the next two periods, out; scoring the Satans 22-19 in the second quarter and 23-16 in the third frame to draw within six points of - Tipton as the final stanza opened. Tipton broke Joose with five straight points to open the last period on a free throw by Keith Smith and a field goal" <and two free throws by Billy Moore for an 11 point lead and although Burris battled courageously the rest of the way they never got back into real contention. In Foul Trouble The loss of Danny Crouch, withdrawn toy'Coach Dick Barr after picking up his third personal early in the second quarter, hurt Tipton's 35fonse, but Gary Meyers who replaced him for the rest of the period contributed seven points on two field goals and three of three at the foul line that helped the Satan offensive power. If- was Meyers' first field goals of the season but his accuracy at the foul line is now 16 points in 17 attempts. Lex Boyd too got into difficulty on fouls and was replaced by Dave Quigley with Jim Harmon also seeing first half duty to make eight men that Barr got into action. Boyd, out briefly in the fourth quarter got back into the game with only one minute , gone and finished out the game without another foul while picking up one point at the free throw lane. Fcund The Range Keith Smith, held to four points in each of his first two outings, played a whale of a floor game and really relaxed his shooting touch as his coach predicted and finished the game with nine of 14 field goal attempts plus four of seven at the foiil line for a 22-point performance. Tipton's other . double figure scorer was Bill Moore who, in addition to doing his usual great rebounding job hit five of ten from the floor and two in three tries at the foul line for 12 points. Jim Hinga, sophomore son o Ball Slate basketball coach, led the viiitors in scoring with 19 points hitting seven of 23 from the floor and five of six at the foul line. Rebounded Well Although Burris matched Tip ton in height, the Satans con trolled the backboards mosi of the game, particularly in the late moments after Boyd re turned to the lineup and the Owls were- trying to get back into the game. It appeared after this game , that coach Barr isn't pushin his boys to the early peak at which he aimed last season and that they'll be coming into their top capability a little closer to state tournament time this year. It was noticeable that when the chips . were down, though, the boys tightened up their defense and played a little more con trolled offense that indicated a lot of future potential. Tipton is idle now until next Friday when the Satans invade the new iball hall at Wabash against a rough and scrappy bunch of Apaches.

The bulk of the postponements were in the northern part of the state. Most of the games 1 were not immediately resetted-) uled . because of conflicts on other possible dates. A few will be played tonight and some next week. Unbeaten Kokomo kept its string - going in one of the night's top games but the Wild cats had to hold off a late rally by Lafayette to edge the dej- fending state and North Central Conference champs, 74-72. | Lafayette, paced by' Steve Kirkpatrick's 30 points, trailed by eight points with' - less .than two minues left but turned three Kokomo errors into baskets to cut the final margin to twc. • I In another close one, unbeaten Lebanon ran its string to four with a 77-72 victory over previously unbeaten West Lafayette. In another battle of uri- beatens, Tipton handed Muncie Burris its first loss, 76-66. Don Curnutt had 26 points to lead the winners to their third straight. ] Spencer made it seven in a row with a 58-53 victory over Bloomfield which suffered its first loss in five starts. Washington won its fourth straight, spoiling the season opener of Southern Conference foe Vih- cennes, 65-51. ] Anderson kept its record clean against previously unbeaten Marion, 63-52, and Indianapolis Attucks made it three straight, handing Bedford its first loss, 79-52. In another clash between unbeaten teams, Fort Wayne Central downed city foe North, 56-44. j Columbus rolled, over South Conference foe Shelbyville, 7153, to run its regular season .vinning streak to 46 games, four of them this season. It vvas the Bulldogs' third confer- ance victory. Staunton downed Rosedale, 80- i6, to run its season record to 5-0; Brazil made it three in a row with a 79-63 win over Torre Haute Gerstmeyer and Terre Haute Garfield' beat Evansville tleitz, £,1-71, for its third straight.. But some winning streaks eame to an end, too, during the night's action. Georgetown snapped Marengo's six - game string, 88-70, with Greg Walts and Dennis Heib scoring 27 and 26 points respectively for the winners. Substitute guard Larry Woodward scored with eight seconds left to lead New Castle over previously unbeaten Richmond 76-74. Richmond, which had won its first two games, led by as much as 15 points in-the third period. In a Northeastern Conference game, Columbia City snapped New Haven's three-game string, 60-51. Woodward wasn't the only one who came through with last-minute heroics. Ian Bob bitt's push shot with one sec ond left gave Linton a 60-59 win over Shakamak and sub Dave Miller hit on a basket as the gun sounded to give Indianapo lis. Howe its 65-63 win over Bloomington University. < Another of the night's heroes was Oscar Ortega • whose 34 points led Hammond Tech over Whiting, 83-581 Old St. Nick visited Sharpsville-Prairie High Schcol this week, and decides to do a little talking to nine year old Janice Moore.

(TRIBUNE Photo-Engraving) Christmas Mail Suggestions To Speed Delivery Postmaster Ralph Watson urges all patrons of the United States mail to cooperate with the postofiice department and the local office by following the suggestions of the postmaster general, for prompt, speedy delivery of all Christmas mail. Unsealed greeting cards without writing., other than your name, may be mailed for 4c, but they cannot be forwarded or returned to you if undeliverable as addressed. Those bearing the first class rate of postage, 5c, can be forwarded or returned if undeliverable, according to Watson. This of course is if they have your return address on them. Sealed Cards All sealed cards and those containing writing must bear the letter rate of postage. Certified mail service provides a record of delivery a at the office of address, and, for an additional fee, a receipt of the sender. Added protection for important mail may be had by having it registered. Be sure to consult your mail carrier, if on a rural route, or your clerks or postmaster if in uie city tor rates of postage to foreign countries. Buy In Advance The postoffice department urges you to ibuy stamps in advance, then be sure to affix all cards with them before mailing. Postal regulations require rural patrons to put stamps on all 1 greeting cards and letters mailed during the month of December. Your rural carrier has a supply of stamps to be purchased by boxholders. Added Help As an added help to get the mail moving faster,, the post office department also asks that you separate cards for local and out of town delivery. When ready to be mailed they urge hat you tie them in parcels and face addresses up. If you are packaging a parcel for delivery select a good sturdy container and tie with strong cord or twine so it reaches its destination in good order. Write or print the address on ONE SIDE ONLY and place your return address in the UPPER LEFT HAND CORNER! You may also place a card inside the package containing your name and address. You may also enclose a letter in the package if you mark on the outside "•First Class Mail Enclosed" and pay the rate of the letter plus the parcel post charge. Always insure valuable packages. Tell Carrier Rural patrons are also urged to advise their carrier whether the parcels you may receive are to toe left outside the box, whether you will meet him to accept them, or call for them at the local postoffice. - If either rural patrons of. those in the city have further questions they are advised to get in touch with their postoffice. Above all—mail early! Nature Notes By George Cline Are you ready for winter? This was a good question for farmers in Tipton County 50 years ago or more, but it is not heard here now. Getting ready for winter was a serious and necessary project and it took time, but it was usually completed by this time of year. Of prime consideration was food. Mamma and the girls began canning with the ripening of strawberries in late .June and didn't quit until the Kiefer pears had been canned in November. I have known of families to have 200 quarts or. more of canned fruit for winter use, ranging from peas and berries to green beans, tomatoes, peaches, plums, corn, applesauce and pears. We didn't can many pears because we liked to save them to eat fresh as long as they lasted. Since we didn't have a basement, we put a ventilator in the ceiling of the living room and used an upstairs room for fruit storage, letting warm air up through the ventilator when needed. We had once had a "cave" or warmhouse built partly underground and it was a fine place for winter storage, for nothing froze there—and I have known people who stored canned fruit under their beds. Many people canned lots of mincermeat and some considered it to be a great relish, but I never cared much for it. My mother canned pork tenderloin and I have never tasted any meat that I liked better. An old man once told me the story of an elderly lady who was asked how she could tell' the canned • meat from other canned goods, and she said it was simple! She'put T.M. on the cans of meat, meaning 'tis meat", and on all the others she put T. M. for 'taint meat" I can recall when mother had glass cans that required ceiling wax poured on the top to seal them. Later the screw top cans came into vogue. And also a lot of meat was fried down and put into "stone" jars. Of course we grew cane and had sorghum molasses for winter use, and even yet to me, it doesn't seem, right to eat sorghum in summer. Lots of dry beans were harvested and stored and wild nuts were gathered and kept for winter use. Those who liked saner kraut had great jars, filled with ' it. Many things were "holed up" and to do this you put about a half foot of straw on the ground and made a conical shaped pile of potatoes, apples or pears on the straw. Then a layer of straw was put on top and dirt was shoveled on that so as to make a pile that would shed water. When cabbage was to be so kept, the plants were pulled up by. the roots and stood upside down on straw in a row The main thing that I remem her about this was the roots of the cabbage sticking up through the dirt. Butchering was the process that furnished the winters meat My father ' followed the old rule of killing a hog for each member of the family and one for company, and when we were. all at home that meant eight hogs. The.sides and joints were salted down in barrels and when they had "taken the salt" they were hung in the smokehouse for several days in smoke made by a smouldering fire of hickory bark or corn cobs. We usually canned the sausage or • fried it down in jars. When we could get someone to help butcher who would cle-n the small intestines of the hog'3, we might "case" '66me sausage' in them. >Sometimes mother made something that was called "hogs head cheese" or something like that. I didn't take much interest in it because I didn't like it, but it was made from meat off the heads of the hogs. Jellies, preserves and pickles were pat up aplenty and most,] families collected such herbs for home remedies as they could not get in winter. It. was the custom to tie these herbs in bunches and. hang them on the kitchen walls. When you had done all this, and had plenty of corn, oats, hay and shock-fodder for the livestock, you were ready for winter. At this time of, year most people are getting ready for Christmas. Let me suggest that my book, "An Educational History of Tipton . County" makes a good Christmas present. It is a hard-backed book of 420 pages. The price is $5.00 per copy, postpaid if desired.

GRIGG United Press International PARIS (UPI)—Six West European nations may ca'.l a summit conference early next spring to revive bogged-down plans for political uni'y, responsible French sources said today. Tha sources said the meeting wojld hinge on prior agreement on European Common Market farm prices during negotiations in Brussels this month. The French have set the end of this year as a deadline for farm agreement. The sources also said that any summit would rertai"'v be • preceded by preparatory discussions between officials and a meeting of foreign ministers from France, West Germany, Italy, Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxembourg. These countries make up the Common Majrket. (French sources said this will be discussed with West German Foreign Minister Gerhard Schroeder when he visits Paris for a day of talks on Wednesday. Discussions on European political unity have been at a standstill since April, 1962. Negotiations collapsed after President Charles de Gaulle of France rejected the closely in- tegiated political • unity sought by the other five Common Market countries. He vetoed anything beyond a loose federation of independent slates which the French termed - a "Europe of fatherlands." Later Belgium and Holland refused to discuss -the problem further until Great Britain was admitted to the Common Market. De Gaulle blackballed Britain's membership application in January, J963. But since September there have been signs that the political logjam is breaking up. "West Germany, Italy and Belgium all have submitted various compromise plans to get negotiations going again. The only firm holdout so far has been Holland. But French officials were confident t h e Dutch would agree to resume talks if their five Common Market partners wanted them.

Jackson Central Downs Frankton On Hot Shooting Facing a huge height disadvantage against a Frankton team centered by Nick Waymire at 6'6", coach Bill Britton's Jackson Cen'.ral Cagers re'.ied on working the ball for the good shot and last night pulled a surprise with a well- played 65-59 victory. Knowing they couldn't rely on rebounding with their tallest starter 511 after husky Dave Leach was sidelined by the- flu, the Eagles centered 54 percent of their shots and when baskets are dropping in tnat frequently there aren't too many rebounds left for the big fellow to get. Waymire's height still enabled him to be high point man for both teams and in defensing him the Eagles gave him frequent opportunities at .the foul line which enabled him to wind up with 10 field goals and 14 free throws for 34 points. * Jackson Central however, balanced that with evenly divided scoring of its own and the other opponents to a minimum with excellent all-around team play. Coach Britton termed it a (Continued on page 6) News Features To Look For Do the majority cf legislators favor repeal of the sales tax law?
