AKJ:il'/- ASSISTANT T -';r? T .A STATE LlBRARt ENTERED AS SECOND CLASS MATTER OCTOBER.4,-1895 AT POST OFFICE AT TIPTON, INDIANA VOLUM ^j ^gty&BglftS, IHDIASA TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE, SATURDAY, APRIL 10, 1965 7 CENTE PER COPY — 35 CENTS PER WEEK SCHOOL AID BILL PASSED BY CONGRES Big Three Tied At Halfway Point Of Masters Play By LEO H. PETERSEN AUGUSTA, Ga. (UPI)— Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Gary flayer, golfdom's "'big three" when it comes to the Masters, were precisely where you might expect them to be today — rubbing shoulders in the driver's seat. They were in a three-way tie for the lead with identical 138 totals — six under par — going into the third round of play. The trio gave the Masters a familiar look. Among them they've won the title exclusively ever since 1959. The betting was that one of them will do it again. Palmer, who fired a sizzling four under par 68 Friday when the exacting Masters course played more normal, won last year —and in 1960 and 1962. Broke Streak Player broke the Palmer streak in 1961, winning only when Palmer double bogeyed the final hole. And Nicklaus got into the picture in 1963. "I-'don't think for a minute this course belong to any one of us," smiled Nicklaus, "but it sure is beginning to look that way, isn't it?" ! It sure is. i Their 138 total is only one stroke better than Dan; Sikes, two strokes better than!British Open champion Tony Lema and three strokes ahead of Tommy Aaron and Doug Sanders. • In all, despite that par-blistering first round when 33 golfers in the field broke par, the cut down for the two final 1 rounds of play today and Sunday was 148 —- four over par. A total of 49 golfers made it, despite unfavorable winds Friday which cut the number of. subpar rounds to four. Disgusted With Game The biggest of those four was by Palmer. Disgusted with his game, and even threatening to throw his putter at his wife; the determined Pennsylvanian, defied the 15-mile an hour winds and the 88 degree heat to scorch out a brilliant 68. "My putter," he smiled, "started working, and I'd like to add, I didn't throw it at my wife." Palmer's approach irons were working, too. Because of them he was able to card three straight birdies, chipping in from 35 feet on the third hole, so he-^started out taking only two putts on the first three holes. "It made me feel good," he said. He never let down as he carded his 34-34—68 over the 36-36—72 par 6,980-yard Augusta National course. "Player, the little South African, who made the initial charge of the "big three" with an opening round 65, slipped to a one over par 73. And Nicklaus, who ran into a string of three straight bogies on the back nine when his approaches were too strong, carded a one under par 71. Straightened Out "I thought to myself, 'what the hell am I doing with these bogies,' after the 14th hole. I decided to do something about it," Nicklaus said. He did. He lipped the cup for an eagle putt on the 15th, winding up with a tap-in birdie, sank a four foot putt on the short par three 16th for a birdie and then rimmed the cup on would-be birdie putts on the final two holes. "It would have been nice if those close ones would have gone in, but anyhow, I'm in the ball game," Nicklaus said. Player didn't have too much luck, either. Thursday he had seven birdies and no bogeys en- route to that brillaint 65. Friday he had only one birdie against two bogies. "Those pins just weren't favorable so far as I was concerned," he said. .

Satans Put Up Good Effort In Loss to Kokomo • The Tipton cindermen Friday afternoon put up a strong showing before bowing to Kokomo 62-47. Uncovering several state championship contenders, the Wildcats won as expected, but the Blue Devils picked up points in every event except the mile relay, with relay points only going to the winner. 1 There's no heating a champion, and Kokomo put several of them on display. But in most of those events,;- Kokomo got only the five points going to the winner with Tipton picking up the four points for second and third. Wright Wins Dave Wright, the great Kokomo halfmiler who finished second in the state championships last year but who has been out of action this Spring due to a strep throat and duties of senior Class president, took the track for competition for the first time Friday and his rythmical stride carried him to a front-running victory in the good time of 2:03.1 Tipton sophomore Dan Tragesser gave it a good effort for third place. State shot put champion Tom Hilligoss set a new Kautz field record with the best outdoor heave in Indiana this year, measured at 58'5". Tipton's Lex Boyd, improving in every meet, got two of his tosses over the 49-foot mark for second place. Hurdle Winners A Kokomo junior, Jim Barber, who has come out of nowhere this year to rate as'one of the state's top hurdlers, beat both Kim Hand and,.Bill Moore of Tipton, with a swift 15.2 clocking in the high hurdles, but Hand and Moore turned in their best times of the: season clocked in an identical 15.7. Barber also captured the lows' in 21.6 just ahead of Hand and More. Mike Kilmer, doubling in the century and 440 dashes, captured both events, but Dan Crouch chased him over the longer ' route for three points and Jim Rumbaugh got one point for a third in the 100. Guenther First Tipton's best showing in the running events came in the 220 where sophomore Louis Guenther led from start to finish in a good 24.1, knocking .08 seconds off his best previous effort- and Tipton won the race 8-1 whe'n Rumbaugh finished second ahead of the front Kokomo runner. Dick Heron, improving in every meet, turned in the fastest mile he has yet rim with a 4:40.1 despite the fact that there was no one within hailing distance to push him. Tipton's other first place in individual competition came in the field events where Keith Smith sailed 20'%". Vault To Kats Steve Jones, one of the state's top pole vaulters who has already cleared 13 feet, won that event as expected for Kokomo at 12'6" but Jim Hormon and Steve Burkett took second and third for four points for Tipton. And in the high jump, won by Myers of Kokomo at 5'10", Lex Boyd took another second and Lester Smith third for four more points. Tipton lost the mile relay when a great third-leg effort by Dave Wright moved the Wildcats out of reach, Wright being clocked in 52 seconds flat in his effort.. Good Relay The Blue Devils; came back strong in the half i mile relay, however, with Jin? Rumbaugh taking a first leg lead, Kim Hand holding it on the second, sophomore Larry Deakyne widening it in a terrific; effort on the third leg and Louis Guenther held off a desparate bid by hurdler Barber to win for Tipton in their best time iof the season, 1:38.3. The Satans travel to Marion this ..afternoon for a; meet at 1 p.m. Moore and Hand will run the high hurdle trials- in the opening event, Lee and Beaver in the 100 yard dash trials; Fork- (Centlnved en page t) 36'CITY BLOCKS of ihe aerial view.

Mantle's Homer Wasted in Debul Of Astrodome By CURT BLOCK UPI Sports Writer That S31.6 million domed colossus, Harris County Stadium, home of the Houston Astros, has every wrinkle in the book plus a few that need to be ironed out. The Astros worked out in their new headquarters earlier in. the week and found the glare"coming through the roof so bad that routine fly balls were impossible -to catch. Colored baseballs were experimented with but at last report no firm solution had been found. However, the stadium is absolutely ideal for night baseball and the Astros were never better than Friday night when they delighted a partisan crowd of 47,876 that included -President and Mrs. Johnson, with a 12-inning. 2-1 victory, over the American League champion New York Yankees. Many in attendance were gazing toward the President's box or gaping at the luxurious interior of the six level instruc- ture in the sixth inning when Mickey Mantle unloaded a blast that landed on top of the centerfield wall 40S feet from home plate for New York's only run. Ties Score Houston tied the score in their half of the inning on an unearned run and won in the 12th when pinchhitter Nellie Fox delivered Jim Wynn with a single. The Astros played errorless -ball while the Yanks committed three miscues. The Braves, came, saw an^ conquered. Atlanta. Sixty thousand fans greeted the Milwaukee (to be Atlanta in 1966) Braves at a daytime reception and hours later the team christened the new $18 million stadium with a 6-3 triumph over the Detroit Tigers. Tommie Aaron wasted no time putting the scoreboard to use as he belted a three-run homer for the local favorites in the first fram. Catcher Joe Torre added two more with a roundtripper off lefty Hank Aguire in the third. Denny: Lemaster, the Braves starting and winning southpaw, was touched for a solo homer by Don Demeter in the fourth for the only run he allowed in five innings on the mound. Other Action Elsewhere, sophomore Tony Conigliaro powered his seventh homer of the spring in the 10th inning to help the Boston Red Sox defeat the Cubs, 7-4. Chicago rookie Roberto Pena sent the game into 7 extra innings with his first roundtripper of the spring in the ninth. . . Shortstop Zoilo Versalles and first baseman Harmon Killebrew slammed solo homers in the first and second innings, respectively, as the Minnesota Twins snapped a six-game losing-Streak by edging the New York .Mets, 2-1. Met - starter Carl' Willey allowed only three hits in six inningis thereby restored a $4,000 salary cut which the management said would be paid if Willey showed be was over the effects of a sore arm (Centime*! en Page *) Nature Notes By GEORGE CLINE We were visited by a small flock of Cedar Waxwings Wednes day morning. They took a fancy to the honeysuckle vine by ouri kitchen window: and spent some time pecking at its bark. These birds are not often seen here and perhaps our bill of fare does not satisfy them, and there was something about this bark that sup-j plemented their diet. I The size of a waxwing is between that of a sparrow and a robin. They are brown above and yellow below and there is a yellow 'band on the end of the tail. The bill is black, and there isj a wide black stripe running back from the bill on each sidej almost clear around the. head. The head is crowned by a prominent! topknot. €> J '• I. have very few records on these birds, and these are from the, last week in March to the last week in May. | MUSLIM*? b During the last week in March I saw my first grackles (blackbirds), Red-winged blackbirds, and cowbirds, of the season. These three species are almost black in color, and since they, commonly associate with starling, which are also black, one wag has sug-j gested that they must be 'Muslims! ] In autumn, great flocks of black colored birds may be seen and sometimes they flock together in early spring, and all eoccept the starling, which is a year-around resident, come back at about the same time that they did this year.-.There is no great difference! in body size,-of any of these four species, but the grackles can easily be distinguished from the others in a flock, by their long tails, and this difference can be noticed at a distance. I OTHER MARKINGS I At close range at this time of year, the starling can be identic fied from the fact that their bills have turned to bright yellow, and the tips of their body feathers have become white, giving them a speckled appearance. And the males, in particular, are blue and purple on their heads and necks. The cowbird is a little smaller than the others mentioned and the head and neck of the male is noticeably brown colored. The female is not nearly so black as the male, being more dark brown and dark gray in color. ' : It is not the whole wing of the Red-winged blackbird that is rod, but only the butt of the wing, or shoulder. Several years ag6, a flock of these birds, flying in formation, passed me going in the same direction that I was, and I saw a flock of black colored birds. When a little distance beyond me, they reversed aiid came towards me, and this time I saw a flock of red colored birds. The sudden change furnished a striking display of color] 1 I MAN COPIES BIRD | I My admiration for the grackles, is the way in which they know how to handle their tails in flying. As stated, they have long tails and they open them widely and hold them flat side up, when rising and when flying in a straight line. But on turning, they change the position of fiat tail, so that it is edge up, and use it as a rudder by swinging it from side to side, exactly as the tail of an airplane or the rudder of an outboard motor is used. It is common knowledge that man has copied much from the so-called "lower creatures", and this is an example of it. I MORE WADERS I The small birds that are long legged, and are waders, have been mentioned, but there are eight species of waders that are large and have long legs and may be seen here soon. Four of th'jse species are herons—great blue, little blue, black crowned night and little green. Great blues nested in a woods southwest of Tipton not so many years ago and the little green (shitepokes) nest here yet. The black crowned night heron is the one that flies up aid down the creek in late evening telling "quawk". The great blae heron is often called "crane", but this is wrong. There have been no cranes in Tipton County within my memory, and probably will never be any here again. I There are'three species of rails that migrate through here and occassionally a pair will nest here. They are king, sora and Virginia, and the sora is the only one to have a short bill. ' The last species of the eight mentioned is the bittern. It is larger than the shitepoke and occasionally a pair will nest here. O.' course all these birds nest near water and spend most of theit time there, for that is where they get their food. The herons often nest in colonies, in thick woods and bushes, but the other four species are solitary.

Steckler Friday in connection with his conviction on a charge of. selling two tractors stolen from an interstate ship- m jnt.

Officials Doubt China's Intent To Enter War By CHARLES W. CORDDRY ! Urited Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) — Officials said today they doubted that Friday's air battle between Communist MIG17 jets and U.S. Navy fighters was the forerunner of Red Chinese entry in force into the Viet Nam .war. These sources plainly hoped the brief engagement over the Tonkin Gulf, in which a MIG was reported shot down, would .not be blown into a major incident. | Apparently to that end, the government was at pains to state it did-not know the nationality of the MIGs which came out to meet Navy F4B Phantom jets "off the.coast" of Red China's Hainan Island. No official here would state on the record that he believed Red Chinese air force pilots flew the MIG17s although the facts seemed reasonably conclusive and Peking Radio readily called them "our planes." "Simply Don't Know" "We simply don't know," Assistant Defense Secretary Arthur Sylvester told newsmen. He asserted that the Phantoms had. not, before or during the battle, intruded into Chinese air T -space—over-.-Hairtn,—which, lies across the Tonkin Gulf from North Viet Nam. ; Peking claimed the Navy air craft were over Hainan and the MIGs drove: them off. -Military observers said the episode may mean that Red China has aggressively changed the - "rules of the game" over the Gulf. . Previously. Communist planes have-patrolled over Hainan but stayed away from U. S. planes flying over or near the Tonkin Gulf, • The forces have eyed each other with radar and let it go at that. Change In Tactics '. If. Friday's exhibition signified a "rules change" by Red China with more attacks in the future, observers said that could mean changes on the American aide with "hot pursuit" of the Reds into their own airspace. In their careful pre-flight briefings aboard the carrier Ranger, pilots were instructed to'avoid Chinese air space and may have understood that to mean not to chase any MIGs (Continued on page 6) By JOHN A. GOLDSMITH ' United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI^President Johnson's S1.3 billion school aid program, its journey throL-gh Congress completed, today was on its way to the President and swift enactment into law. The measure, which would channel federal aid for elementary and high schools to most of the nation's school districts, passed the Senate by an overwhelming 73 to 18 vote . ? riday night to break a string of de- 'eats fcr general school assistance measure's going back to 1948. It was quickly sent on to Johnson's Texas ranch, where the Chief Executive is spending the weekend. The White House made no official announcement of when Johnson would sign the bill into law, but invitations went out to his former classmates at the ittle country sclnol where Johnson spent many hours as a boy to join him there Sunday for :he signing. Second Victory Passage of th? bill was the second major legislative victory for' Johnson this week following by only a day House approval of his health care for the elderly program. Friday's victory w a s enhanced by the Senate's action of nassin? the version approved earlier by the House witiuut adding any amendments. This speeded the program on its way without sending it to a time-consuming House-- Senate conference for compromise. I Upon hearing of final passage I after a long day of debate in I which 11 attempts to modify the ! bill were beaten down. Johnson I said it was "the most significant step of this century to provide widespread help to ,all of America's school children." • The heart of Johnson's program is a $l.t> billion provision to help educationally deprived students. This aid would go to about 95 per cent of the nation's counties, which could use 'heir grants under the program to finance a. wide variety of additional instruction and services designed to help those j :hildren. Other Coverage The bill also provides: —S100 million to buy library ind t?xtbooks for the use jof students and teachers in both oublic and non-public schools.
