Telephone OS 5-2115 ROUND TOWN . AND ' THE CLOCK i -With the Tribune by R. D. Maney THE STORM - IT WAS A PERIOD that will be long remembered in this area . and the Tipton county citizens should be grateful they were spared the terrible tragedies that happened all around us. There • were numerous people to be . congratulated—the ever present Civil Defense, firemen, police, sheriff's office . . . and our own Tipton County Memorial Hospital . . . ready for any emeMency and functioning perfectly under emergency conditionsw ' WITH THE STORM striking so close to'our community ... . We were indeed fortunate . . ."to be spared! THE iDEVASTATION AT Kokomo was something to be well "remembered : . ".-* and it should point U P * ne f ac * * hat civil De ' fense is a great standby to have at all times; and we should be Willing to give a 'pat on the back' to all who belong to that organization . . . from' top io-bottom. ALSO A GREAT BIG orchid to Mrs. Helen Pratt . . . who manned the switchboard, giving out details to worried (and we -might add—"worrisome") citizens . . . who flooded the office at police headquarters with calls from the time the,- tornado struck Sunday, until an 'all clear' was sounded yesterday. Mrs. Pratt was always affable, cheery, patient, even under the strain of hundreds of calls. She and her assistants are to be commended. THE RED CROSS ON THE HEELS OF the tragedy which struck so close to our community ... it might be well for us to give some thought to the greatest organization in the world—the American Red Cross without whose services many, many people might be without food and shelter today. WE HAVE A LETTER from Mrs. Lester Amsbury who advised that the Tipton County chapter is having a rugged time securing donations to keep the local office functioning. It seems that it might not be because people won't take the time to send in contributions ... but there is a definite lack of people who will canvas for the drive. The City of Tipton, in the drive, gave a total. of-S2,449. ' MRS AMSBURY STATES THAT the Red Cross is quite active in the COUNTY . . . making many contacts with the boys in the service"when emergencies arise. This we can attest to! A call to her in an emergency meets with immediate response. THE RED CROSS ALSO has a program allowing them to send a boy or!girl to acquatic school to be trained as life guards . . . and as a result one who takes the course is generally used at the local pool in the summer months. " IN! VIEW OF THE recent disaster . i . and the'needed funds to help in other fields, Mrs. Amsbury is asking that the people who wish to help send donations to the local ^chapter by mail. Simply mail your contributions to Tipton County Red Cross, Tipton, Indiana. They will be acknowledged 'by Mrs. Amsbury. Some townships have volunteers . . . others do not have enough, to cover the territory. We also suggest that if you wish to give your'services as a volunteer in thedricei'contact'Mrs. Amsbury. WE ALL KNOW THAT when trouble strikes an area . : ..the Red Cross is on the job. Let's do our part! THE 1965 FUND GOAL is $4^159. Of this amount the National .quota is S2.449, leaving $1,710 to be collected out in the county. The • money needed for help in disasters is sent to the counties from the money collected and remitted to National headquarters. So—as you can readily see—it is really a matter of neighbor helping neighbor ... so lets all be neighborly! WONDER HOW IT WILL BE? AFTER READING A LETTER to a national officer of the United Federation of Postal Clerks . . . regarding the ZIP code— one does wonder . . . wonders how we ever got this way—in so short a time! I IT SEEMS THAT HE was dreaming .. . and awoke to find the morning paper dated 1984. He noted the date on the paper . . . but gave it little thought. In that dream he noted a full page of violations of the ZIP CODE ... at fifty dollars per fine, (probably a backup for the Poverty Program . . . whose funds, had long since been depleted!) There were even rumors that a concentration camp would be erected for those who violated more than "once. Well—the fellow also dreamt that he went to the local P. O., -and found no signs of life . . . merely slots and openings for packages and letters. It was all automatic . . . and'there was a penal- 'ty for placing letters in the wrong-slot. Only oneisize envelope. They were nice regarding packages . . . you could send two sizes! Jn this dream he also remembered that due to vastly'improved .methods of farming . . . 75% of the nation's farmers were being •paid NOT to farm! Billions were being paid others to store grain "in silos ... . a target for rodents . . . etc. Millions of people though —were still starving throughout the world! INSIDE THE P. O. EVERYTHING was automated . . . with .two clerks to keep the machinery oiled! Then there was this other, -pert . . . 60% of the nation were unemployed after some sort of >xperiment they called the Great Society . or Crusade Against .Poverty! They allowed one page in every envelope ... no 'hand •stamp' allowed . offended the sensitivity of the machines! '.The Mark 11 was moving fast but was noiser thap the Mark 11 i . . •of pre Society days. The man closest to me on duty informed me Mn a mean tone, that the Mark XXII was'a money saver ... it ,'cut out' a great number of deliveries . . ', and just then the fore- Jman showed up and advised the clerk that talking with mere customers was against the rules. ' ' ' I • AFTER ALL—mere customers onlv pay the bills' J I SLIPPED INTO THE local P. o". today . • . saw familiar .faces . . . and was relieved! • SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT I IT SEEMS THAT IN this country the government is forever •trying to make everyone and everything more productive '. . |more efficient, yet the very acme of inefficiency is in Washington] «D.

' " FOR REAL ESTATE INSURANCE CONSULT i In Hollywood 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 attained stardom overnight: From. Broadway, a hit record, a socko television appearance, they make their movie debuts in starring roles. Fame is in- santaneous their salaries vulgarly enormous. Then there are the climbes, 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 file top rung, i; • . | 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,"- "The Americanization of Emily" and "The Magnificient 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." Coburn's style and approach to acting are all his own. And ^therein lies . Coburn's hope for a permanent spot at the top of the ladder. He's different. He's effective. He's also determined. Foreign News Commentary By PHIL NEWSOM UPI, Foreign News Analyst Notes from the foreign news cables: Business As Usual: The" personal diplomacy of U.S. presidential envoy Ellsworth Bunker may have helped smooth President Sukarno's ruffled features, but few observers in Jakarta believe it can have any major effect on basic policy trends in Indonesia. Government controls slapped on American firms follows a pattern established earlier. Dutch capital was seized in the late 1950's, and British interests followed last.year. The increasingly - powerful Indonesian Communist party can be depended upon to try to embarrass Americans and the U. S. government at every opportunity. ;| Berlin Again: No\v that the Bundestag, lower house of the West German parliament, has held its meting in Berlin, the Bundestrat, the upper house, also wants to meet r there before the summer sparked Communist harassment of Western land and air access Obituaries •i i' - .

Communist needling tactics. At any rate, Berlin will continue to be in the news. Britain's Queen Elizabeth is scheduled to visit there in May. The West .Gerinans also would like a Berlin visit from President Johnson. All For On: Top - ranking French officials are citing French support for the Allied position in Berlin as an indication of the way France would react if another major Berlin crisis exploded. These officials _ say President de Gaulle would''at once forget his past disagreements with the United States and Britain and present a solid front with them against the Russians.

It is a true life story of <a Man who fulfilled.Hie prophecies of Isaiah, David and others in the Old Testament^'lt is the story of a Man who knew and predicted He would die by the hands of men. The story tells how His prediction of resurrection was fulfilled in factual happening. The Easter story tells how His remaining eleven disciples, high principled men of integrity, confirmed His-resurrection and historically recorded the event in the New Testament. With real life drama that includes typical human nature, the story relates how one of the eleven—the disciple Thomas—was a skeptic. The story tells how Thomas had to see and touch Him, had to touch his wounds before exclaiming, "My Lord and my God." The story of •Christianity continues., with' His words to Thomas, "Because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed; blessed are they that have not seen; and yet have believed." , The Easter -story is the Soppiest story of all time. When we say, '"'Happy'Easter" to ••jh"other, we have every season to wish 'happiness and be happy ourselves in the knowledge that with faith, we can in His grace. His love and His mercy, enjoy eternal life with Him in Heaven. That is the true, the only worth while meaning of "Happy Easter." PHIL NICHOLS, Young-Nichols Funeral Home On The Lighter \ Side Phone OS 5-47M 216 W. Jefferson By DICK WEST | United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) — Ever since the repeal of prohibition, states, territories and other political subdivisions have jbeen 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. Some years ago, Congress passed a law that permitted two-fisted but not two-footed drinking in the capital. 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 who drank sitting down couldn't always tell when they had had too much to stand-up. Modified Ban In May of 1962, Congress modified the stand-up drinking bah by passing a screened-off amendment. The lawgivers soberly decreed that elbow bending in the upright position could take placed,-"in' an enclosed or screened-off area." This week, the District Alcoholic Beverage Control, N Board finally got/around to interpreting what Congress meant by jthat. 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? DAILY CROSSWORD Snowball Trouble INDIO, Calif.
