By HCRTENSE MYERS Ur.jted Press International j INDIANAPOLIS (UPD—Indi- I ana officials will hold a series I of meetings in tornado stricken sections of the state early next week to acquaint local officials with the type of federal |aid which they may expect in the wake of the Palm Sunday twisters which left 130 dead in the state and caused damage in the millions of dollars. The meetings, announced Thursday by Civil Defense Director Robert S. Bates will bring together local officials and representatives of the various state agencies dealing with tornado relief. The sessions will be held Monday at Marion and Lebanon and Tuesday at Elkhart and South Bend. Bates also announced that his office and the U.S. Office of Emergency Planning will open field offices Monday at Kokomo and South Bend to aid in processing disaster relief. The offices will remain open for the duration of the emergency. Meanwhile, the question of just who would be eligible for federal assistance became of paramount importance here and, in Washington. Governor Branigin, in a telegram to President Johnson, told f him his "immediate concern" is i for the Hoosiers whose homes, farms and business were de- troyed by the twisters and who have no resources for, restoration. Answers Johnson Branigin's telegram was in answer to one in which Johnson said he had declared the tornado-stricken counties disaster area eligible for federal relief funds. The feeral funds, however, are mainly for restoration of public facilities damaged or destroyed by the tornadoes and' will be of little help to individuals. Branigin told Johnson, "Our immediate concern is for funds to assist in rebuilding the homes and property of those who are not insured and who are without reources to restore their homes, their farmsl and their business establishments. The American Red Cross is our official disaster agency and is in need of vast sums to accom- plih the purpose." Numerous callers at Branigin's office earlier Thursday warned that home owners and (Continued on page 8) ASTER Maude Ehman Dies Thursday Maude (Lively) Ehman, 77, died Tnursday at her home in suburban Arcadia after a brief illness.

MALLOY United Press International SAIGON (UPI) — About 150 U.S. Navy and Air Force planes blasted six bridges in North Viet Nam today in around-the-clock raids on the Communist country. At least five bridges were destroyed. The sixth was hidden by a dust cloud which mushroomed overhead when it was hit. No aircraft were lost. An Air Force spokesman said about 70 Air Force planes destroyed bridges at Kim Cuong, Trai Hoi and Phu Dien Chau in the southern part of North Viet Nam. One said each of the three bridges was wrecked, rendering them useless. The spokesman. Col. Edwin J. Witzenburger, 45, of Lusk, Wyoming, said that after today's strike the North Vietnamese will "have to' go back to sampans (fishing boats)." All Return Safely He said all the Air Force FlOS's returned safely to their bases, after dropping about 120 tons of bombs. A Navy spokesman said Navy planes used bullpup missiles to strike a bridge at Bai Due Thon in North Viet Nam. It was the first time these air-to- surface missiles had been used against the Vietnamese Reds. The bullpup is a 600-pound solid fuel visually guided missile. About 50 Navy dive-bombers hit three highway bridges, while 30 other planes flew support and protective missions. Two of the bridges were located almost side by side at s,80 milessouth of the North V Xom Ca Trang, about 180 miles' south of the North Vietnamese capital of Hanoi. The third was to the north at Bai Due Thon. Hit Infiltration Point The bridges were all on North Viet Nam's national highway 12 near the point where the road turns into neighboring Laos to serve as an infiltration route for men and arms on their way to South Viet Nam. After hitting all three bridges Navy planes returned to re- strike the Bai Due Thon bridge with bullpup missiles. The'spokesman said the north side of the bridge was shattered by a direct hit and the northern approach cut off, but did not reveal whether the missiles did this damage. He said all of the Navy raiders returned safely to the aircraft carriers Coral Sea and Midway. Today's raid was a followup strike to a raid during the night bombers — the second after- dark assault of the air war. A government spokesman said the propeller-driven Sky- raiders, under the personal command of Vice Marshal Nguyen Cao Ky, prowled over Communist territory in a two- hour mission, finding targets only as they turned and headed for home.

(TRIBUNE Photo-Engraving) Boy Struck By Car Thursday Three accidents Thursday and one early today took a heavy toll in property damage. One resulted in injuries to a seven- year-old Lincoln School child who was struck on his way home from school . Steve Crawford, 335 Poplar street, was about 50 feet from home when he darted across the street and was struck by a car being driven by Earl.Mar­ tin, 35, 1004 N. East "street. Martin and a witness, - Walter Hughes, R R 1, -Tipton, ; who saw the accident in his rear view mirror, told police the boy ran out in front of Martin's car. He was taken to the Tipton County Hospital and treated for minor injuries and released. In other accidents Thursday, a 44-year-old Windfall man, Lee E. Dewitt, escaped possible injuries when the stalled car he was working : on was struck by two other vehicles. Dewitt's car was stalled on Wall street in Windfall near its intersection with Independence street when the collision' occurred. Judy L. Voris, 17, RR 2, Windfall, told investigating officers from the Sheriff's department, that she was driving north on Independence when an approaching southbound car began to make a left turn. The Voris girl said she saw the other car's turn signals on, but did not think the other car would turn in front of her. When the other car did turn in front of the Voris vehicle, it was struck and shoved into Dewitt's "car. The third car, which was driven by Rebecca J. Martin, 37, Windfall, suffered damage of S300. Damage to the Voris machine was estimated at $150, while damage was set at S75 to Dewitt's auto. Dewitt, though not injured was badly (Continued or. page 8) Parents To Get School Survey Results April 29 One year ago the Board of School Trustees employed Ind- aiana University to make a complete study of the school program as it exists throughout the Northsrn Community School district of Tipton County. In view- of the fact that school population is increasing at.the rate of about 5 per cent a. year and there is every indir cation that industries around the area, especially in the Kokomo area are expanding, it was felt that the present facilities would need to be expanded or hew facilities would need to be constructed to accomodate this increase in the near future. Indiana University assigned specialists in the field of school house planning, enrollment growth, and curriculum to ascertain the needs of the school corporation. Dr. Montfort Barr was the director of this study. Assisting him were Dr. Paul W. Seagers, building consultant. Dr. K. Forbis Jordan and David W. Beggs, curriculum planners, and many other Indiana University staff members-. This study is complete and in •he hands of the Board of School Trustees. The Board has asked Dr. Seagers, Dr. Barr, Dr. Jordan, and Dr. Wilkerson to appear before the public at the Sharpsville-Prairie High School gymnasium Thursday evening, April 29th at 7!30 p. m. to explain in detail the entire report. All staff members of the school corporation, par T ents, ' and interested persons are urged to attend this meeting and hear this report. John M.

MYLER United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) —Moon experts agreed today that the lunar complexion is disfigured by. cracks, dimples, pimples, vvrinkles,. and blisters as well- as craters, mountains, cliffs, and pock-marked plains. They could not, however, agree whether it is a safe place for Apollo. astronauts to visit. One said "hall, yes, it is." Another said he wouldn't risk his life doing it. A third said he was "scared" by some pictures taken by Ranger 9. In the course of the argument the possibility was raised that gaseous exhausts of descent rockets aboard the Apollo landing craft might turn an otherwise firm surface into "instant quicksand." Air Views The moon experts aired their ideas at a conference on "The Nature of the Surface of the Moon'' ending today at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. The conference at the National Aeronautics' and Space Administration (NASA) installation was sponsored by a unit of the International Astronomical Union. The lunar surface — including the cracks, craters, dimples and the like — was photographed in fine detail by Rangers; 7, 8, and 9. But the 17,259 pictures taken by the three spacecraft produced little agreement among scientists as to whether the moon's surface is strong enough to support the 15-ton Apollo landing craft. Dr. G. P. Kuiper of the University of Arizona, chief of a oanel recruited by NASA tc evaluate the Ranger pictures sent word to the conference through an associate. Ewar Whitaker, that he estimated the load-oearing strength of at leas lunar area at a ton per square foot. Gold Disagrees Dr. Robert C. Semans Jr., as" sociate NASA administrator who was in the audience, saic '.his gave an Apollo landing s 5-to-l margin of safety. Bu ^eamans went back to NASA before the group heard f r o rr Prof. Thomas Gold of Cornel' University. Gold believes the lunar plains and perhaps the older craters are covered by "finely divided material," or dust, to a depth of perhaps many yards. This dust may have become compacted and firm in the course of time. Still, Gold told newsmen, "if I were at the controls of an Apollo vehicle hovering over the moon, I would not be willing to settle down for fear it would sink too much."

Russia Arms Viet Nam With Anti-Aircraff By STEWART HENSLEY United Press Internitiona! WASHINGTON (UPI) — The United States has learned that a site is bein"* constructed for So'.'iet high-aHiiude anli-aircraft missiles in the Hanoi region of Communst North Viet Nam, officials said today. They were uncertain, however, whether the missiles and the r?d-r guidance assistance and other needed "hardware" ^cti-i!!y had K °en put in place in the site, which presumably iva' fir "h* T^-iian S\M-2 missile, capa'le of altitudes of up to 100.ff n r n-t.' ! It was said that if the missiles actually wars brl-2 p-nt in place, it would -be Vgi".l for Russian military techr.irhns to be in charge of the work. The North Vietnamese are not believed to have men capable of doing the job. No Missiles Sighted Thus far, the only evidence the United States has observed" are the concrete pads for a tynical. SAM emplacement, which includes normally six launchers. No missiles have been sighted, nor any firm evidence of their presence, sources said. The United States anticipated that the Russians would deliver something of this sort to North Viet Nam to carry out the pledge of aid Soviet Premier Alexei N. Kosygin made during his visit to Hanoi more than 10 weeks ago. U.S. officials did not appear overly concerned, since the con(Continued on page 8) $117220 Now | On Hand as Area Responds to Plea $1,500 Award For Tipton Man Norman L. Wertz . Norman L.

Zone Ordinance Is Amended The Tipton County Planning Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals unanimously passed three ammendments to the county zoning ordinance in public hearing at the commissioners hearing room Thursday night. The ammendments, in effect, would no longer allow farm houses to remain exempt from requirements of building permits, would declare mobile homes to be residences needing to meet other residence requirements as non-mobile homes now do: and would impose certain new classifications on barber shops, beauty shops, work shops and highway advertising signs. The three ammendments will now be presented to the county commisioners for final approval or disapproval. ;In other actions taken by the Zoning Board of Appeals, Harry Conoway was granted a variance to place a mobile .home a quarter mile east of the Hopewell Church on the south .side of the road. T/he application of Frank and Florence Guffey was continued to April 19, at which time blueprints are to' be presented to the board along with a statement of the intended nature of the business and whether the proprietors intend to serve alcoholic beverages or not.
