6 TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE MONDAY, APRIL 12, 1t« STRICTLY BUSINESS * MCMI. While you were on vacation, Argylc, a question came wp about yonr work — what do you da here?" Television In Review 'Mission To Malaya 1 Captures : Peace Corps 1 Raw Adventure By RICK DU BROW l HOLLYWOOD (UPI) — No other (television show this season has encompassed the human dignity, the perfect idealism, the practical value and the sweeping grandeur of raw adventure captured in ABC-TV's weekend documentary, "Mission To Malaya," about two young Peace Corps nurses. Those who were fortunate enough to watch the Saturday night hour win not soon forget the story of the two nurses, Rita Franzone. of Wheaton, HI., vriio was seen in her final days .of duty on the island of Lang- kawi, and Marjorie Benning. of Qoyd, N.Y., who replaced her. • Nor will viewers soon forget one of the most astounding and compelling peal-life episodes ever. recorded for television: The stormy, night-time crossing of the 50-mile Strait of Malacca by Miss Benning and a pregnant native woman who needed emergency surgery in a mainland hospital — a crossing in a small fishing boat in which the nurse administered a blood transfusion under incredible circumstances. ' As the lights of the mainland came into view at the end of the six-hour journey, during which there was also the fear of Indonesian 'pirate ships, it was a splendid moment for the human will. In the hospital, although the baby was born dead, the" mother survived. For."Miss Benning, it had been . her first day on the job. Every decision hjd been hers, including the commandeering of the boat. For some viewers who watched "Mission To Malaya," the memory of this night-time voyage may call up recollections of the films of the roaring sea; or thoughts -of the comparative puniness of ^similar Hollywood movie scenes; ; or the notion that there may still be more exciting things right'here on earth than even in space. But as for me — I will never forget the eyes of the two young ladies. When the two first met, I made a note of how much more mature the eyes of Miss Franzone made her seem than the newcomer, and I scribbled, "I would like to see Miss Benning's eyes in two years." After the .emergency voyage, there was a closeup of Miss Benning, and already her wide- eyed look of innocence had seemed to change, in one" day, to her benefit. With "Mission To Malaya,'.' the producer, Hope Ryden, in one stroke, marked herself a television creator to be reckoned with, and she owes much to cameraman Sid Reichman. Together they were so successful in avoiding the travelogue- ish tone of many documentaries, and in recreating the feel of their setting, that when Miss Benning arrived and met her predecessor, one almost expected to hear her say, "Miss Franzone, I presume." Various Stales.' Drinking Laws Confusing Interstate Boozers By DICK WEST WASHINGTON (UPI) — Ever since the repeal of prohibition, states, territories and other political subdivisions have been mixing their own drinking regulations, with some rather curious results. ,, Some places permit the sale of liquor' by the bottle but not by the drink. Some permit the sale of liquor by the drink but only where food is served. And so on. ! At least one state banned the sale of liquor and then enacted a, liquor tax that brought in considerable revenue. Which is a pretty neat trick. All of this has caused a lot of confusion among interstate drinkers, many of whom are not too well organized in the first place. They long to have drinking regulations standardized throughout the nation so that regardless of where they are they will always know where they stand. If they are able to stand. Asking For Trouble I can see their point, but I think they are asking for trouble. Uniform regulations would require federal action, and that means Congress. And you can't always be sure what Congress means. Drinking in the District of Columbia already is regulated by Congress. Which is one of the reasons why the people who live here are in favor of home rule. CUSTOMIZED COWS DALWOOD, England (UPI)— Stephanus Rautenback, a dairy farmer, is convinced that the clothes make'the cow — give milk. He disclosed Friday that his nine channel island cows have been outfitted with custom tailored raincoats. Warm, dry cows give more milk, Rauten back says. The raincoats have pleats to fit over the Mp bones. COULDN'T PULL JOB COMPTON, Calif. (UPI) — A male customer approached cashier Vauleen Coutter in the Sueedy Market with three candy bars, showed her a revolver and ordered her to put Jl bills into a bag. As she started to comply, he said: "Aw heck, lady, I can't do it. My wife and kids are hungry, but I can't do it." Sheriff V deputies said 'the man fled with only the three candy bars. At Last!

People were not allowed to drink unless they were sitting down. Presumably, the purpose of the legislation was to promote temperance. At times, however, it had the opposite effect People w'ho drank sitting down couldn't always tell when they had had too much to stand up. Modified Ban In May of 19S2," Congress modified the stand-up drinking ban by passing a screened-off amendment. The lawgivers soberly decreed that elbow bending in the upright position could take place "in an enclosed or screened-off area." This week, the District Alcoholic Beverage Control Board finally got around to interpreting what Congress meant by that. It has drawn up a regulation restricting screened-off stand-up drinking to an area not exceeding 30 per cent of the total floor space exclusive of kitchen and storage facilities. Imbibers would stand before a bar "not exceeding 8 feet in length and 2 feet in width, or if such facility be' of irregular shape, the serving surface of which shall not exceed 16 square feet." In Washington, this sort of thing is known as "clarifying the situation." Wouldn't you rather be confused? Academy Award Final Touch for Crowning Julie Andrews MAIN AND JEFFERSON OS MU1 ! By VERNON SCOTT UPI Hollywood Correspondent I HOLLYWOOD (UPI) — The Academy Award was a tiara, the finishing touch to the crowning of a new and curiously different queen of the movies. Julie Andrews is her name and her reign appears infinite. In an era of blatant nudity on screen and shabby offscreen headlines, Julie, like a princess in ; some fairy tale, has forced Hollywood to re-evaluate its standards of taste and style in leading ladies. She smells of soap and, fresh air. She makes sounds like a freshly starched petticoat. Her bristol-blue eyes are direct and open. Her hair is blonde from tipj to roots. She's bright and communicative and astonishingly (forthright. Some say she won the Oscar in |a popularity contest. If true, true, it's the highest of compliments. Among crew members and other attendants, actresses generally are the most disdained creatures in the Hollywood zoo. Few, if any, are universally admired. There have been two that I have heard of in Hollywood history — Carole Lombard and Deborah Kerr. And now Miss Andrews. She is loved because she is genuinely sensitive to the feelings of co-workers. She refuses to take herself too seriously, and is lacking a veneer of actressy glamor. There are a hundred actresses with more beautiful faces. Her figure won't make people forget Bardot. Her jawline is rather long and her nose is just plain wrong. But talk to her for 10 minutes —alone if possible — and study the'character in that pleasant face. It hooks you. . Yet two years ago, she couldn't get arrested in Hollywood. She'd been a hit on Broadway in VMy Fair Lady" and "Camelot" but Mary Martin, Helen Hayes, Gertrude Lawrence were theatrical stars who never made it big in movies.. It appeared Julie was one of them. And when Jack Warner signed Audrey • Hepburn for "My Fair Lady," Julie's movie career was doomed -before it started. But wily old Walt Disney, bottles wholesomeness, signed KRAFT Dinner 1 'is I thrifty I and quick and tutl of cheese fbvor • DINNER (Dean* OB Kraft Dinner for •radar naflaronl that's fol at foidea aha*** aooite—u Have it oa hand for ipetdy aehool lanehee and hurry-of) •uppers. It's food eahtoa aasr the winsome English girl for almost nothing. Widely Accepted Before Uncle Walt had com- 1 pleted "Mary Poppins," Julie had signed for two more pictures, "The Americanization of Emily" and "The Sound of Music." Three pictures worth $25 million without anyone knowing whether movie audiences would accept her- a terrific gambJe. Accept her? They virtually adopted her. She's earning more than half a million currently for "Hawaii," and. the price will go up. Julie accomplished it all without an expensive publicity campaign, minus a long slow grooming by a studio, free of the trappings attendant to most new stars. She is as different from Elizabeth Taylor as she is from Doris Day or Ann-Margaret or Sandra Dee. Her husband, English set decorator Tony Walton, is no Adonis. Their daughter,, two years old, is named simply Emma. Julie's teeth are uncapped, her nose unbobbed, and her curves unbikinied. Producers are clamoring for her services. They're searching for Julie Andrews stories. They're seeking a Julie Andrews look. It's a refreshing turn away from half-naked sex kittens, simpering dames in their 40s guarding, long lost virtue, and old bags commiting murder. Julie Andrews is the new queen of the • movies. Long live the queen! EXCUSED FROM DUTY LOS ANGELES (UPI)—Dist. Atty. Evelle J.. Younger has been a firm advocate of every as his public duty. But Friday he found a prospective juror whom he felt—because of the nature of his wor —had a compelling reason to be excused from jury duty. The juror was Dist. Atty. Younger. j PERCENTAGE IS UP DETROIT (UPI) — Associate White House counsel Hobart Taylor Jr. says that the percentage of non-white workers in 200 companies last year was 8.2 per cent—up 2.5 per cent from 1963. Taylor also said - Friday that non-whites in white collar ranks climbed from 2.1 per cent to 3 per cent and those in blue' collar Jobs increased from 8.9 per cent to 12.4 per cent "There is a great and increasing willingness on the part of American industry to make use of all our citizens," he said in a speech. 118 Known (Continued from Page Ont) badly wrecked on the city's south side. National Guardsmen and local policemen, including 80 officers sent from neighboring Muncie, patrolled _ the area to prevent looting. Forty doctors garnered at Marion General Hospital in Marion to administer to injured brought in by the dozens. Power was severed throughout the city, but hospitals used emergency generators. Near Sheridan, sx persons belonging to three generations of one family were killed when their homes side- by- side on Indiana 47 were blown apart The dead included Hall Good, 56, his wife, Orpha, 54, their daughter, Mrs. Becky Starrett, 29, j her husband, Robert 30, and their children, Brian, 5, and Brenda 1. i picked up the, car and threw it across the road. None of us was badly hurt" The Malcolm Canada family .of five near Lebanon saw the funnel cloud and dashed into a storm cellar. When they emerged, their house had vanished. A man wandered around looking for his wife. He said she was washing' dishes when the twister hit. Grandparent! In Daze Mr. and Mrs. Ronnie Neese went to check, her grand — ; parents, the Clarence Richardsons, near Lebanon. They found the elderly couple sitting dazed atop the rubble which once had been their home. The Lloyd Ludwig family near Shannondale, west of Lebanon, was entertaining a houseful of relatives, some from Tacoma, Wash, The twister shattered the house, killed the couple's 4-year-old son, Lloyd, and sent many other members of the family to hospitals with serious injuries. St. Joseph Hospital at Kokomo reported "we've got a couple hundred patients—it's just awful." Power was disrupted in some areas of the hospitals and victims were patched up by flashlight illumination. At Koontz Lake, a summer resort area near Knox, Everett James, 55,. was picked up by the wind and carried a distance of about two blocks. He was dashed to death against the earth. Sherry Browning, 5, and Merril Clark, 3, were playing in the Clark home in Bremen when the storm hit. Both were killed. Dies From Fright A man named Perkins was dead on arrival at a South Bend-Mishawaka area hospital, presumably from a heart attack caused by fright and excitement. State police said two tornadoes moved along the same path in the Bremen area a few minutes apart. Four homes were shattered at Mulberry, near Kokomo. The Midway Trailer Park at Dunlap, between "Goshen and Elkhart, was flattened. A church was wrecked at Lapaz, where 15 homes in a trailer park were damaged badly. Witnesses said nearly every house in the small community of Wyatt in St Joseph County was flattened. Hundreds of persons may have survived because they heard the tornado warning* and found shelter. Among them was Ted Miller, 29, Russiaville. He said he shoved his family into a "cubbyhole" beneath their home. When the storm passed, he said, the house was gone and "so was most of the town." Roof Ripped From School The roof was blown off a grade school building at Moran south of Rossville. In the little town of Middlefork, northeast of Frankfort, Dan Bristow saw a twister approaching as he walked along a street near his home. He ran toward his home where his wife was ill. A car struck Mm and he was injured critically. Palm Sunday evening worshipers in the Moran Kilmore Methodist Church escaped death when the twister hit the area. An unknown number of . em­ ployes of the Chrysler Corporation's transmission plant at Kokomo were on the job when the twister hit the plant Some were hurt by flying fragments and debris as the vacuum from the whirling storm broke every pane of glass. Autos of Chrysler workers parked in a big lot at the plant were wrecked by the whirling storm. One worker reported all that;was left of his new car You, Your Child And School By DAVID NYDICK UPI Educational Specialist During the past ten years, there has been a consistent increase of educational pressure on students, parents, and schools. There has been a demand for higher standards and improved programs. The result has been an upgrading of educational programs as well as higher expectations for student performance. Is this good for all students? This certainly has had 'many beneficial effects. A concentration on math and science - has brought many fine improvements in these areas. The curriculums have been brought up to date so that they reflect the needs - of our present society. Improved methods of Instruction are now in use in many schools. The higher expectations for many students has been more realistic in relation to their ability. A student who does not have the opportunity to participate in an interesting and challenging program might become lazy and careless about his work. This leads to one of the problems which can result from an emphasis or academic excellence. In too many cases the individual student is not considered. High standards are fine James Coburn COSTS 5<* YOUR LOCAL INBEPERIEHT AGENT ISA 8001 MAR 1 TO KNOW He'll keep you from being hooked by insurance worries and DfuuWmS. • Ritz Insurance Agency ;for those who can meet them. If a student cannot meet the standards, he becomes a failure. He begins to lose confidence and may give up trying. The answer is in adjusting demands and expectations to the individuals.. This has been the cry ' of educators for many xbars. Unfortunately, in too 'many situations, the same performance is expected from all 'students in a grade or class, i As an example, students are 'constantly compared with other students at their grade level. Perhaps it would be better to compare a student' with himself. Consideration should be given' to how. much he has learned rather than emphasizing that he is above or below grade level. Another problem which has resulted is that areas' other than math and science- have been neglected. This has been recognized and you will ssee in creasing emphasis on creative writing, social studies,: litera ture and similar subjects in the coming years. The federal government which encouraged emphasis on math and science by providing financial aid through the National Defense Education Act (NDEA) has extended this act to include aid for some of the other subject areas. was the tachometer. Some areas got twisters and counted themselves lucky to escape casualties. Storms hit Porter and LaPorte Counties in the LaPorte and Valparaiso areas but nobody was reported killed or hurt, although some livestock was lost. The Three Acres Trailer Court south of Marion was flattened. Hail up to golf ball size and even larger—"big . as apples," one witness said—fell in the Marion area. Bunker Hill Air Force Base, one of Indiana's biggest military installations, sent three bus-loads of 100 men and quantities of generators and electric power equipment into the Greentown - Russiaville area nearby. At Kokomo, the National Guard Armory and the high school gymnasium were turned into housing centers for persons left homeless by the storms. Mayor John W. Miller of Kokomo was driving through the Maplecrest subdivision at the time the storm hit. He telephoned Governor Branigin at 8:05 p.m., and Branigin immediately declared the Kokomo6)) southside as an emergency area. Miller reported. Mrs. Joseph Werner, -60, Logansport, was killed and her husband. Victor, suffered a broken leg and was hospitalized at Logansport after they were thrown from their parked car as they huddled in the front seat in the path of one of the tornado near Greentown! Final figures were expected to show Elkhart and LaGrange Counties, side by side on the Michigan border, with the highest death toll, %vith perhaps 50 killed in Elkhart County alone. Officials mobilized 4-15 national guardsmen from Elkhart and South Bend. Governor Branigin. who'kept in touch with the disaster news as he drove to New Albany for former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sherman ' Minton's funeral this morning, planned to call on Washington for federal disaster help if damage, estimates made when weather permits show such aid is needed. State climatologist L. ' A. Schaal of Lafayette planned to take to the air this afternoon to chart the paths of the various tornadoes. Schaal said he hoped to issue a detailed report Tuesday. } At Keystone, near Bluffton. the Friends Church was leveled while 12 worshipers were attending a service. All escaped serious injury by crawling under pews. Two members of a family living across the street from the church were killed when their home blew away Midwest RIDER TRIES AGAIN ASHFORD, England (UPI)— The five steeds set off down the course of the point-to-point. One horse ran out; a second just 1 stopped dead; a third refused a middle fence and the remaining two balked at the final fence. [ Continued From Paqe On* was so extensive an assessment could not be made until daylight. j Illinois: Twisters tore through the Chicago suburb of Crystal Lake, killing at least five persons: An estimated 120 homes were flattened, and hundreds of persons were treated at hospitals. A force of 500 rescue workers moved into the area to help. . j Wisconsin: The tomaodes cut a path through southwestern Wisconsin, chewing .a wide path of property damage and causing at least three deaths when the wild winds blew cars off the highway. Gov. Warren Knowles, -who ' drove through tornado area just before the storms hit, . declared Green, Rock and Jefferson counties as disaster areas. Film Industry By .VERNON SCOTT UPI Hollywood Correspondent HOLLYWOOD (UPI) There is' instant stardom in the movies, and there is the laborious plod up the ladder. Fortunate is the ham who arrives full-scale. .Yul Brynner, • Marlon Brando, Elvis Presley, Ann . Margret and others a,t\ tained stardom overnight. From Broadway, a hit record, a socko television appearance, they make their movie debuts in starring roles. Fame is instantaneous, their salaries vulgarly enormous. Then there are .the cumbers, the actors who begin in bit parts, progress to feature roles and move up to second leads. Most fall victim early in the going. They remain bit players, occasionally move to 'feature actors and rarely live the good life of solid second leads. Rare is the one who reaches the top rung. One of the climbers is James Coburn, a lanky, hollow-cheeked man you've seen scores of times in movies and television. But chances are you cannot connect the name with the face. He was a potent force in "The Great Escape." "T h e Americanization of Emily" and "The Magnificent Seven." In those he was a featured player. In "High Wind in Jamaica" and "Major Dundee" he graduated to supporting parts. Soon he will star in "Our Man Flint.' 'winning top billing over Lee J. Cobb. For Coburn the title role represents the highest rung. "I never thought about anything except reaching the top." he said on the eve of his big break. "It never occurred to me to settle for less than leading roles." Cobum's style and approach to acting are all his own. And therein lies Cobum's hope for a permanent spot at the top of the ladder. He's different. He's effective. He's also determined.
