INDIANA TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 21, 1965 7 CENTS PER COPY — 35 CENTS PER WEEK By EUGENE J .CADOU United Press International INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) —For- I mer Gov. Matthew E. Welsh | was father of the bride when *' his daughter, Kathryn, was i married to Congressman An t drew Jacobs, Jr., Monday. That traditionally is an hum ble status. And he seems to be also on a similar level with President Johnson with respect to the important Washington post which Welsh's friends believe he richly deserves. The months have passed since Welsh suffered severe publish­ ment as the President's stand in against the bid of Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace in the Hoosier Democratic presidential preference primary. Meanwhile, others have captured the prime presidential ap pointments even including two -Hoosiers. Former Rep. Joseph W. Ba.rr Indianapolis, was named to the high position of Undersecretary of the Treasury and former Na tional Chairman Frank E. McKinney, Indianapolis banker, was offered a lesser job as ambassador to Jamaica. Politicians Puzzled The politicos were almost as puzzled about the lowly appointment offered to McKinney as they have beep about Welsh's failure to win Washington recognition. . Reports have circulated that Welsh had the refusal-of national director of; civil defense and head of the International Great Lakes Commission, but the former governor has \ not confirmed these rumors.i The latest hypothesis about the Welsh future is that he may be named assistant secretary of commerce to succeed Franklin D. Roosevelt, Jr., who will be compelled to resign if his expected icandidacy for the New York Democratic gubernatorial nomination comes to pass. In the meantime, Welsh continues to pursue his prosperous career as a practicing attorney, stock broker and operator of a plush restaurant with a Gay Nineties gaslight tavern. Lieutenants Waiting? Two aides of Welsh seem to be waiting for a chance to serve him in Washington. They are former State Chairman J. Manfred Core, who was his campaign manager, and Don Radler, former publicity direc tor of the Democratic State Committee. Both are reported to have rejected political job offers. Welsh no longer commands the powerful statehouse political machine, but he has retained a certain amount of influence as Indiana Democratic national committeeman. The status of Welsh and- other party problems are probable topics for discussion at the state-wide Jefferson - Jackson Day dinner in Indianapolis on May 1. : TRIBUNE RELIEF FUND IS $4,322.28 Rusk Envisions 'Trouble Ahead' Over Viet Nam By DONALD H. May United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI)—Secre tary of State Dean Rusk sees 'trouble ahead" in Viet Nam on the basis of Communist re plies so far to oroposed peace talks. Rusk made the comment Tuesday after a White House cabinet meeting which reviewed policy statements coming from Hanoi, Moscow and Pekin, over the past several weeks. Summing up these replies Rusk said, "I do not yet see any basis to indicate that the other side is seriously interested in a peaceful settlement on terms which would be agree able to the independent countries of Southeast Asia or to the free world." The "key point," Rusk said is that all three Communist capitals have called for an end to U.S. military operations but have not yet said a word about North Viet Nam ending its in filtration, supply and direction of the war in the South. Both Must Stop "If we stop what we are doing then others must stop what they are doing." Rusk said. "If they are prepared to do that we may move promptly toward a peaceful solution. There is no in dication that that is in their minds." Rusk told newsmen that as long as Hanoi pursues the war 'we are going to have a seri ous condition; there is going to be trouble ahead." This somber analysis came 18 days after 'President Johnson, in a speech at Baltimore, offered "unconditional discussions" toward ending the Viet Nam war. At the same time, Johnson listed U.S. requirements for a settlement —. an independent South Viet Nam; an end to North Vietnamese "aggres siori," and guarantees that aggression would not resume. Hanoi, Moscow and Peking in coordinated statements, re sponded with a four-point peace plan: (1.) U. S. withdrawal from South Viet Nam and an end to bombings in the North; 2.) Adherence to 1954 agreements; (3.) An internal settlement among the South Vietnamese "in accordance with the program" of the Viet Cong; 4.) Eventual reunification of (Continued on page 6) George Fischvogt Stricken Today George L.

(TRJBUNE Photo-Engraving) Narcotics Agents Accepting Bribes MIAMI (UPI) — A top federal narcotics agent and two Miami j detectives were to be charged formally today with accepting bribes from a narcotics pusher who turned inform erJ The pusher reported he had sel up :a deal to pay the men $2,000 a month to "keep off the heat." j Federal narcotics agents from Washington and ^Atlanta and city police swoopeil down on the. jthrce men and nhe informer " : in a trap set at his apartment Tuesday. Eugene Marshall, 39, chief of the federal Narcotics Bureau for south Florida since 1958 and Detective Sgt.

Detective Roosevelt Tremble, 34, also; a member of the vice squad, was in the apartment nd was arrested. The three men, all nattily dressed | in suits, were taken to Dade County jail and booked on state charges of "accepting a bribe," ,ja felony in Florida. No federal charges were filed. The three were released immediately by three different Miami Criminal Court of Record judges — Jack J?"alk, Jack Turner and Gene Williams — in the custody of their attorneys without bond. An attorney for the three said they had "no comment" on the chargesi "I'm absolutely shocked and astounded," said Headley. He said the! arrests followed an investigation which started five days ago when the narcotics pusher, jwho Headly would not identify,! walked into the Miami police station. The pusher, who reportedly dealt mostly in cocaine and marijuana and a little bit of heroin, jwanted "to get out of the deal but the men taking bribes wouldn't let him," said Headly. j The informer told federal narcotics agents that he had made arrangements with the three to pay them about $2,000 month but that the payments had never gone that high and that he had paid off only about 5,000 when arrests were made. Ground Broken For Land Bank On East Street The Federal Land Bank, currently located in Kokomo, yesterday broke ground in Tipton for a- new office building which, when completed, will house the present Kokcmo operation. Rick Hansen, of the Federal Land Ejank, was in Tipton yesterday to_ participate in land-breaking ceremonies at the new site on North East Street between Jefferson and Washington, just north of the Shell Service Sta tion. He explained that the land had been purchased from the Pioneer Corn Company, and the new building will house the en tire Kokomo main office, includ ing all loan files for this area Hamilton and Tipton Counties Hansen said purchase of the lot was made possible through the cooperation of the Tipton Chamber cf Commerce and Robert Woods of the Pioneer Company.

Last year the association paid a 5V6 percent cash dividend and in 1963 paid a total dividend of 6'A percent on its stock. The stockholders of the iFed era!

I County Council Told Need Of New Fire Truck The Tipton County Community Council heard a number of speakers last night, on subjects ranging from a new swimming pool, new fire truck, and expan-. sion of a county industry to a resume of Tipton Hospital operation which is also considering expansion. Richard Phillippi of the Concord Woodworking Company, Inc., in Kempton, discussed that firm's present and future expansion plans in the area, noting that they had just added a new line to tneir products. Tipton Mayer Ray Rench ex plained the need for a new lire truck, pointing. - out that their present trucks are 30, 20 and six years old and, particu larly on the oider truck, repairs and replacement of worn cut parts is 'becoming increasingly difficult and expensive. New Bond Issue The City has just completed payment of a $100,000 bond issue so a new issue in similar amount could be secured without any increase in taxes, the 'Mayor said, and added that legal procedures are now .being instituted for a new bond issue of $100,000 from which $35,000 would be used to purchase a new fire truck, delivery of which would take approximately four months. The new truck would be of standard chassis and motor with the necessary equipment added according to specifications, for 'a combined ladder and pumper truck. Rench said the State | Standardization Board requires Aid Planned In Kokomo Area A meeting of groups at Kokomo this a.m. brought together the Office of Emergency Planning, Army Corps of Engineers, Federal Housing Administration representative, State Highway representatives, a group from j a minimum 500 gallon pumper.

(UPI)— Leathernecks at a'; 7,500 - acre base near Miramar Naval Air Station may be wondering which is more hazardous—duty there or in South. Viet Nam.. Officials report civilians riding, motorcycles and dune buggies recently have: been firing rifles, pistols and shotguns at Marine patrols and working parties. No injuries have been reported and no arrests have been made. There .will be no need for an automatic elevator ladder, he pointed out, since there is no need in Tipton for equipment for more than a two-story building 'an"d .that can now adequately be handled by the City bucket- truck. He explained too that a new truck would result in lower insurance rates in the city .since these are based on the rating given the fire departments by the State Rating Bureau, depending upon its equipment. Pool Badly Needed The City is also studying the need for a new swimming pool. The present pool and its equipment have been wearing out for several years with costly repairs needed every Spring. Eventually a new pool will be the only answer but there are many uncertainties, such as a relocation. The only certainty being that it would cost upwards of $150,000. Such repairs as are needed this year would come out of the $S5,000 remaining of the bond issue after purchase of the fire truck. Hospital Funds ' Hospital administrator James Talley, discussing the cost cf hospital space said expansion was needed and told the Council that the hospital now has $2554,000 in treasury bills, drawing almost four percent interest, 'but that a lot of additional funds would be needed to expand to a 150-bed hospital now being.con­ sidered.
