PUBLISHED DAILY EXCEPT SUNDAY BY i TRIBUNE PUBLISHING COMPANY 221-223 East Jefferson Street, Tipton, Indiana. Telephone OS 5-2115 ROUND TOWN AND THE CLOCK I With The Tribune By R. D. Money MAN'S BEST FRIEND! MAN'S BEST FRIEND! This title has gone ... and deservedly so—to dogs. Just any kind of dog ... not necessarily one with extreme intelligence . . . papers, etc., just dogs in general! The proof that it is deserved was once more demonstrated by a Cocker Spaniel . . . pet of the Starrer!- family of the Sheridan area. The dog refuses to leave the spot where the home once stood . . . and his master and family resided. The Starretts, man and wife, children Brian age 6 . . . and Brenda, were killed by the tornado! If humans were as devoted as these pets . . . what a different type of world we would live in . . . there would be no Viet Nam ... no trouble about Civil Rights ... it seems that one could presume that it would be a better world—for all of that! IF THE ACT OF nature did nothing else ... it might have shocked man into the reaUty that man may control the atom—do wonders with space travel'. . . harness the terrific force of nuclear weapons ... but when the ALMIGHTY forces rampage . . . there is no power on earth to hold them back! Man—with all of his wonders still depends upon the God given knowledge to do what he has done, and without that ... he is powerless, although at times one would think that the great scientific minds are responsible for what has been done . . , and there is a trend in some areas ... to take lightly the POWER given, some men are Athiests! We don't imagine there were any atheists (true) . . . when the power was unleashed! Like the men in foxholes . . . there was reality and a true belief ... at least at the moment. • WANT TO' HELP? THE TRIBUNE READERS have always answered the call for help when called upon. At this moment no concrete steps have been taken here, with the exception of the Tri Kappa Sorority, which is soliciting clothing for the relief of people in the Kokomo, Russiaville, Alto and Greentown areas. The clothing is to be taken to the former Discount Center 'building on Main Street . . . where a rummage sale was scheduled this weekend. The event was called off and for clothing is on. Contributions of clothing can be brought to the store until 8 p.m. Thursday. WANT TO HELP WITH CASH? IF YOU WANT TO HELP in a monetary way . . . send contributions to the Tipton Daily Tribune, Tipton, Indiana, or bring them to the Tribune Office, where they will be acknowledged. (Story on page 1) THEY DESERVE A PAT! THE REAL WORK OF getting'tilings back to a point where the job of rebuilding and repair can be done . . . is being carried cn without fanfare at Kokomo, Russiaville, Greentown and Alto. Emergency units seen last evening— on the way to and from the areas where help was needed. Last evening a stream of Public Service trucks was observed by this writer, turning onto Highway 31 . . . after completing a job. The job of restoring main lines is over—now the house to house restoration, where it can be done, will start. - m THIS FAST MOVING day and age, where it seems that man has gained the slogan of "Man's inhumanity to man" . . . the error of the title is once more observed . . . when his neighbors need help! All workers, laborers, technicians, Red Cross, local fire, police, all have responded well and deserve to be commended. This is the real American . . . underneath a facade of haroboiled, 'you go your way, I'll go mine' . . . exterior. THAT'S WHY we're great—and always will be! HARD TO IMAGINE! WE NOTED A STORY yesterday in regard to the Russ ... and the lead in science. It was said that 20 years from now Russia just might be able to control the weather in the U. S. We won't go along with that until we see it—if the Almighty allows us to be en hand! . SOMETIMES . . . somehow ... an alarm is sounded at symposiums . . . placing everything that man does—as* HIS act . . . HIS great discovery. We have enough trust in the GREATEST POWER ... that the <abovementioned will never occur. And frankly we. don't believe the Midwest will be another Applachia one day ... if scientific laboratories are not built here—in the num., bers the scientists and politicians want! The Midwest was hewn -out by men of strong will . . . and not afraid to work. It is not their nature to accept a life of 'gifts' from any source . . : and we believe the scientist—however great he may be assumed to be . . . is incorrect . . . when painting that type of picture. However—it is sad that with alt of our resources, the Midwest can not gain the research centers, etc., that are, and will be available. The centers generally go to areas where the votes count most—and Indiana, unfortunately—is not in a category with New York, California, etc. THEY ALSO SPEAK OF a man as being the 'father of the H-bomb, etc., but we still cling to the somewhat'discarded belief that SOMEONE ELSE 'actually discovered all of these great breakthroughs! Man merely has the brain . . . given him by SOMEONE else ... to carry them out! A little more attention to that SUPREME SOURCE ... and we might do better! ' NEW TEAM—ED AND CHARLEY! POLITICS HAD A NEW team Monday at West ijafayette! The one member was old at the game . . . but was joined by a youngster who generally can 'hold his own' in a battle of words and ideas ... Ed Roush! One had a donkey label—the other the elephant . . . but they were UNITED in this idea that federal funds for research were not being distributed correctly . . . and Indiana was holding the bag! Instead of 'Ev and Charley'—it was 'Ed and Charley'. . . and they make 'em listen! WHAT CHARLEY COULDN'T think of—Ed did . . . and after it was over we don't imagine any person present wasn't aware that of the $15 BILLION a year spent on scientific research .'. .'. Indiana wasn't getting in on the TAKE! • THEY REASON—and rightly so—that with a great university like Purdue in Indiana, plus others . . . perhaps not of equal size . . . but capable of good research . . . VOTES seem to be more important than goals of science! Now we don't like federal handouts, but this is no handout. . . and besides a sizeable amount of it really belongs to the taxpayers of this state. If we have the capabilities at Purdue and the other colleges . .'. then we might tell this fact to our (representative (who is already in the battle) and our two senators. It takes people! And people who are indignant enough to act! Now let's expand the 'Ed and Charley' show . and get all of Indiana's representatives IN ON THE ACT! TODAY'S TIDBIT! ' ANY MAN is dangerous who only carts for ONE THING!

''No words or deeds of ours ban ease the loss of the bereaved families.

After;j the tour of Elkhart, the President planned to return to South Bend to board his plane for a flight over Illinois and Wisconsin, both tornado targets.] He was scheduled to land at Minneapolis for a first-hand look at I the raih-swollen Mississippi, which already has flooded parts of neighboring St. 'Paul. From 1 Minneapolis, Johnson was to fly over Michigan to surveyj tornado damage, then land at Toledo, Ohio for a motor tour of tornado - stricken suburban areas. The 'President was prepared to move quickly to meet the disaster needs of the Midwest. But so far, according to the White House, no formal applications, for federal disaster relief has come from governors of the! more heavily damaged states. 1 HIGH AND LOW NEW YORK (UPD—The lowest temperature reported this morning to the U.S. Weather Bureau, excluding Alaska and Hawaii, was 18 at Pellston, Mich. ?

LARGE CREW FIELD MARIETTA, Ohio (UPI) — Over 200 crewmen from nine schools representing Ohio, West Virginia and Indiana,.will participate in the first annual Mid- Ohid Valley Kiwanis Rowing Regatta on.the Muskingum River Saturday. .' The Lighter Side By DICK WEST United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) — By and large, there are two ways to have a cherry blossom festival —-with or without cherry blossoms. This year's National Cherry Blossom Festival, which ended 'ast week end, was pretty much of the blossomless variety. They didn't plan it that way, but that's the way it worked out. The famous Japanese cherry trees that ring the Tidal Basin : n front of the Jefferson Memorial didn't get around to •loomin? profusely in time for the festivities. So, we had to make .do with monsters. In lieu of cherry blossoms, the festival's star attraction was "The Addams Family," an. assortment, of warm-hearted, r un-loving ogres who have been a bit hit cn television this season. Good Idea Offhand, inviting a family of ">gresto a cherry blossom festival might appear a bit incongruous, but it was a good idea. Monsters are considerably more reliable than cherry blossoms. At a press luncheon, the Ad- iamses were asked if they had exercised evil powers to keep he trees from blooming. "We' would never harm a ibrm'af tree," replied John Astin, who plays the part of "Gomez" on the show. "We would take a weird tree and make it grow." But Jackie Coogan, who plays the role of "Uncle Fester," took a more sinister approach. "We would throw away the blossoms and eat the trees," Coogan said. Someone expressed disappointment that the family didn't bring along "Cleopatra," their carnivorous plant. Ate someone "Cleo didn't feel well enough to make the tripi" Coogan explained. "She ate someone that didn't agree with her." Astin, incidentally, is the son of Allen V. Astin, director of the National Bureau of Standards. Since it didn't seem likely that the elder Astin would, have raised his boy to be at monster, I asked John how he had strayed from the academic fold. "I tried that for awhile," he said, "and . wound up as the best educated soda jerk in New York." : , • . Community (Continued from page 1) has three sons. At the present time he is doing post-graduate study under a scholarship exchange program at the Christian Theological Seminary ' in Indianapolis. His subject for the Good Friday • service will be "The Paradox of the Cross." ' Organist for the service will be Mrs. Merlin Harlow. Special music will be provided by a men's quartet from the Kemp Methodist Church and a ladies trio from 'the West Street Christian Church. Local Ministers participating in the service also will be Rev. Harold Davis, Rev. Noble Greene, Rev. Arthur Davis, Rev. Kenneth Mitchener, Rev. Don Matthews; and Rev. David Clark. The public is cordially invited to attend this service, and local businesses, are urged to close from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. so that employees may attend. YOUTH JAILED MOUNT VERNON, Ind. (UPI) —A 17-year-old husband bound over to a Posey County grand jury Tuesday remained in jail without bond today on preliminary charges of murder in the gun death of a relative by marriage. James Ray Keown, a 5-foot 3-inch 118-pound 'Point Twp. youth, was held on a warrant charging murder in the death of Pete Paris, 33, the husband of his wife's sister. Paris was killed Saturday night by a shotgun charge in the Keown home. Deputy Sheriff' George Brakie and Prosecutor Gene Brooks did not say what the apparent motive for the slaying was, but the affidavit on which Keown was arrested said the shooting was "without premediation." BODY RECOVERED GREENTOWN, Ind.. (UPI)— The body of Kevin E.iHood, 8, R.R. 5, Kokomo, was recovered from a creek near here Tuesday 48 hours after he toppled into the swollen stream. The boy's body was recovered a short distance north of a bridge where he was playing early Sunday afternoon when he fell into the water. A search Sunday was unproductive before it was halted by a series of tornadoes • which lashed this section of the state later in the day. PARENTS OF S.ON Mr. and Mrs. Charles S.

Burden, of Tipton. television In Review By RICK DU BROW United Press International HOLLYWOOD (UPI)' — The theatre of the absurd is intentional. Television of the.absurd is not. In other words, what television really needs is some creative absurdity—say, for instance, a beauty pageant, for "Miss Divorcee America" to.go withj the other absurd contests, and ]to keep up with the times. What I am trying to say, friends, is that television's serious ^approach to its daily entertainment idiocies makes it seem certain that if there are, after all, civilizations on those other planets, they are bound to be superior. Example: NBC-TV's "Mr. Novak".series, about a teacher, is being canceled. Whether or not one cares much for the show is irrelevant to a statement the net' work is reported to have issued to soms state education associations that contacted NBC-TV about the matter. According to "The Report Card," a newspaper published monthly by the Ohio Education Association, part of the statement said: "The program development process is a continuing one. Seasonal revisions of our programs" enables the network •'to meet the developing tastes of our audiences." Sounds beautiful. But hold! What about these "developing tastes"? Well- One of the half-hour situation comedies that will replace "Novak" this fall is "My Mother, The Car," in which a young fellow's dead mother "returns" to give him advice through the radio of an old car. Then there is the ABC-TV's "12 O'Clock World War II Air Force series. Again, whether or not one cares much for the show is irrelevant to | the rationale employed in making changes for next season, when "12 O'clock High" will return. Robert Lansing, a competent and adult actor wlio has gained a considerable following, .will be replaced as the Jtar, and here.are some of the factors: "12 O'Clock High," which now airs late on Friday nights, will be switched next season tc- early on Monday evenings in hopes of attracting the ratings of the pivotal youngster audience, in the manner of another ABC-TV World War II series. "Combat," which is presented early on Tuesday evening. Well, friends, it_has been decided at ABC-TV that it is difficult for an-audience to sympathize with a 'hero who is a general — and Lansing portrays a general. case of •High," a jThe Channel Swim: The 10th anniversary of the death of Albert Einstein is commemorated on NBC-TV's "Sunday" program this weekend ...

EASTER SUNRISE SERVICE ANNOUNCED FOR HOBBS The Sunrise Union services of both Hobbs Christian and Methodist churches will be held at 6 a. ni. Sunday at Hobbs Christian church. Breakfast will follow the services in the church dining room with the Kum Join Us Sunday school class i n charge of the breakfast. Regular worship service will be conducted at 10:30 a. m. and Sunday school at 9:30-a. m. FARM DESTROYED A farm occupied by Mrs. Malcom Canada and family the daughter of Mrs. Nina Young, of Tipton was completely destroyed in the tornado Sunday at Lebanon. Mrs. Nellie Young and Mrs. Nina Young, of Tipton are owners of the farm. The family escaped injury by getting in a cave on the farm. This is the second time . the farm has been hit by a tornado and the families • living on the farm in. both cases were saved by this cave. Mississippi (Continued from-page 1) business places were safe atop 100 - foot bluffs, however, and the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport was out of danger. But floods hit many low industrial areas. About 600 residents fled their homes m the threatened Riverview district but 200 others would not budge. j Take Patrol Duty About 3,000 volunteers, who strengthened flood walls on the east and I west sides of the heart of St.' Paul, settled down to patrol duty today — hopeful the dikes will hold. - "I hope and pray the water won't go over the walls," Mayor George Vavouiis said. A threat to: east-bank industries developed late Tuesday when storm sewers backed up and; poured water along behind a dike. But workers piled tons of sand and gravel onto the road to stop the flooding. The St., Paul City Council raised its emergency flood appropriation from $100,000 to $300,000..' j. • • ] , : f-— - Wide selection Easter candy. Filled eggs, boxed assorted.
