Bands To Lead Closing Parade For Centerville Sesquicentennial M TV MM mm Pen Sketch By Paul Hamilton This pen sketch by Paul Hamilton, noted Centerville artist, shows a typical Pony Express rider of yesteryear as he might be making the run from Richmond to Centerville and west. A rider, depicting this scene, will be in the Saturday parade. CENTERVILLE. - A two-hour parade, featuring four bands, is planned Saturday afternoon as the sesquicentennial celebration nears a conclusion. It ends Saturday night with judging of beards and sideburns of the men and dresses and costumes of the Sesquicentennial Belles. A total of 128 units have signed for the parade, slated to start at 1:30 p. m., although the sesquicentennial parade committee was hoping for more than four bands. However, 14 floats, dignitaries riding in convertibles, marching baton twirlers, horses with both modern day riders and those dressed in the attire of the pony express, antique automobiles and costumed marchers highlight the parade. The bands slated to appear are Centerville, Hagerstown, Cambridge City and Richmond. Gaar Eliason has been named grand marshal of the parade and will ride in the first convertible. Sky divers will perform at 11 a. m. and 4 p. m. Saturday, weather permitting, while recognition of senior citizens will take place at 1 p. m. A Boy Scout campfire is slated for 8 p. m. The final event of the sesquicentennial will be a free street dance at 8:30 p. m. Centerville's high school swing band will furnish music for the dance. The Saturday afternoon parade will form at the Centerville high school lot, proceed Report Over 700 Red Chinese Killed In Typhoon MACAO (AP) - Arrivals from Canton said Friday more than 700 Chinese were killed in Communist China's southeastern province of Kwangtung when Typhoon Ruby swept up the Pearl river estuary Sept. 5. The travelers said the typhoon caused widespread flooding and many houses collapsed. They said more than 300 were killed when a school dormitory collapsed near Canton. The reports could not be confirmed here. Communist Chinese newspapers in Hong Kong have not reported the number of casualties from Ruby or Sally, the typhoons which followed Ruby. But they said the damage was the worst in the area since the Chinese Communists conquered the mainland in 1949. Senate's "Greatest Boyhood Wish To WASHINGTON (AP) - Oh, to tootle a piccolo! 'Twas a boyhood dream, confessed the Senate's Everett M. Dirksen. Thursday, he did. A couple of toots, anyway, to the delight of a score of tourists who wandered into the Senate reception room to see what the tootling was all about. A Democrat, who also happens to have piccolos, Richard W. Bosse of Elkhart, Ind., decided music transcends politics and wanted to give the Senate Republican leader an instrument and a free lesson. The senate's "greatest Thespian" (a title conferred upon Dirksen by Sen. Richard B. Russell, D-Ga.) was delighted for a few moments anyway, to trickle his fingers on the piccolo and pucker up. There was a piccolo player; on hand to show what you could i ' Win. north to U.S.-40, then east to the Mattie Harris road and back to the school through the south section of town. Traffic on U.S.-40 will be detoured during Yugoslavia Communist BELGRADE (AP) - Yugo slavia Thursday established links with COMECON, the Com munist bloc's equivalent of the West European Common Mar ket. It was the closest formal tie between independent-Commu nist Yugoslavia and the Red bloc since Stalin ousted Presi dent Tito from the since-dis solved Cominform in 1948. Although the U.S. Congress stripped Yugoslavia of most- favored-nation status in 1962, this status was restored early this year and the Belgrade gov ernment has been making steady progress at improving Still Bargaining In California Grocery Strike LOS ANGELES (UPI)-Rep-resentatives of the Teamsters union and the Food Employers Council return to the bargaining table Friday to try to end a five-day-old Southern California wholesale grocery strike-lockout. Federal mediators William Rose and Ron Hagist arranged for the "last ditch" bargaining session earlier this week and urged both parties to be "flexible in their approach so we may continue these meetings until settlement is achieved." The strike-lockout thus far has had only limited impact on an estimated 10 million residents in most areas of Southern California served by 56 wholesale outlets who supply about 3,000 groceries. About 5,000 Teamsters were idled by the dispute, which began at midnight last Sunday when Teamsters walked off the job at a suburban San Fernando Valley wholesale warehouse. Considering a strike against one a strike against all, the food employers council shutdown operations at the other 55 affiliated outlets. Retail stores remained open and deliveries of meat, milk, bread and a few other commodities were unaffected by the strike. Thespian" Gets Tootle A Piccolo do after 30 years of using the instrument. "It took you 30 years to learn to play the piccolo?" Dirksen chided. He produced a wheezy sound. "I haven't even had my first lesson." But Dirksen won't keep the piccolo, formally explaining in a statement given out at the brief ceremony: "I doubt whether I could summon sufficient lung power, or make the tongue, the lips, and the entire oral complex properly behave, to become even reasonably adept in piccolo playing." Bosse said that, according to Dirksen's wishes, the piccolo would go to the Guardian Angel Orphanage, in Joliet, 111,, to be used by a child in a band being organized by the Joliet Shrine Club and the Knights of Columbus.

A trade pact signed with West Germany in July recognized Bonn's responsibility for the State of West Berlin a claim the East Germans, COMECON members, have rejected. A government communique said Yugoslavia will cooperate in the framework of the Council of Mutual Economic Assistance or COMECON in the fields of foreign trade, currency and finance, metallurgy, machine building, the chemical industry and the coordination of scientific and technical research. The formal statement made it clear, however, that Yugoslavia will not have full membership of the massive trading group. President Tito's independent minded regime will occupy a role somewhere between ob server and associate member status, informants said. The country will send repre-sentatives to permanent com mittees and the executive coun cil of COMECON when subjects of concern to Yugoslavia arise. These representatives will have what was described as a "consultative right of vote." The agreement was a new breakthrough in the improvement of relations between Belgrade and Moscow first chilled by Tito's 1948 split with the Kremlin over the excesses of Stalinism.

A ' Treasured Toy 788 fj Tomato, Apple Picker Demand Still High INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indiana State Employment Ser vice said Friday the demand for seasonal labor remains high, particularly for tomato and apple pickers. The employment security division announced it has placed 3,350 regular farm hands this year. Last month, 11,703 nonagricul-tural jobs were filled, upping total placements this year to 71,973, or nearly 5,200 more than in the same eight months last year. Moving Cotton For Higher Rate Criticized By Ovid A. Martin WASHINGTON (AP) The comptroller general has issued a report criticizing the Agricul ture Department for permitting cotton grown In areas of low price support to be shipped to areas of high support for stor age under high loan rates. The report said this permits a few growers or their agents to obtain financial benefits at the government's expense. Under the price support pro gram, support loan rates are highest in areas closest to tex tile mill centers and major ports from which cotton is moved abroad. The rates are lowest long distances from mills and ports. This is because of transportation and other expenses involved. Under this system, the cotton supports tend to be highest in the Carolina mill centers and lowest in Texas, Arizona and California, states far from such centers. It is possible, the comptroller general said, to ship cotton from these latter states to the Carolina area and put it under support loans there and come out ahead even after paying shipping costs. The Agriculture Department is studying the report. Bright Outlook For Poultrymen Is Forecast WASHINGTON (AP) - The American Feed Manufacturers Association has offered some what pessimistic forecasts for the nation's poultry producers. A study predicts the average farm egg price for the 12-month period starting Oct. 1 will probably be one to two cents a dozen below a year earlier. It also predicted that grower prices of turkeys during the October-December period will average about 22 cents a pound or about one cent less than a year earlier. The experts also predict that full ration broiler feed costs in 1965 probably will average considerably more than this year. Congolese Retake Katanga Province ELISABETHVILLE. The Congo (AP) The Congolese government says it has recaptured almost all of north Katanga Province from Communist-backed rebels. The national army headquarters said Thursday that it controls Kongolo, leaving only a few pockets of resistance further south. 'Chuck1 Mayo Sees Advance In Health Interest, Skills By Robert Goldenstein ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) -A Mayo doctor who carried on in the tradition of the famed Mayo brothers said Friday that people are more concerned with their health than they were a generation ago and that medical skills will improve to save more lives. Dr. Charles W. Mayo, son and nephew of the late Drs. Charles H. and William J. Mayo, made these observations in an interview at the closing session of the Mayo Centennial symposi um. "Peole today have the benefit of better educational back ground concerning their health and the importance of catching physical changes earl y," he said. "Life insurance companies stress this m advertisements and health writers point it out in their columns." Dr. Mayo, known to his friends as "Chuck," retired from the Mayo clinic last year at age 65 after a 31-year career as a surgeon, author and alternate delegate to the united nations. Not Retired, He Says "But don't call it retirement," he said with a twinkle. "I do more today than I did before, I PHadlum-hem and Dennis Opens New A pilot project in foreign language instruction got underway here with the opening of the autumn semester when an especially designed portable language laboratory was introduced at Dennis Junior high school. If the project is regarded as valuable similar Installations may be made in other junior high schools here. A more complex, stationary language lab oratory for teaching foreign languages was put into use in 1962 at the senior high school. The Dennis equipment, which has been installed in a second floor classroom, includes a portable console from which the teacher works, beaming les son tapes and other materials to the pupils. There are 30 re ceiving stations with combina tion headphones and speakers at the pupil places along study tables. David E. Gettinger, the teacher, can monitor and communicate individually with his class members from the console In the front of the classroom. The console and other laboratory gear also can be moved aside to clear the room for other classes. Some of the equipment was developed or adapted especially for this pioneer project, says Forrest Fox, who was in charge of the installation. Fox believes the console for the Dennis Language lab is the first of its kind in use in a classroom in the United States. Found In Methods "The key to the newer ap proaches to foreign language instruction by use of electronic audio devices is found in the methods and materials rather than in the equipment itself," says Gettinger. He nas naa special training to teach with electronic language equipment Minister Rebuked For Comments On Candidates WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Episcopal bishop of Washington has administered what amounts to a public rebuke to the Very Rev. Francis B. Sayre Jr. for asserting that the American people face a "sterile choice" in the presidential election. The Rt. Rev. William F. Creighton commented Thursday on a sermon given last Sunday by Father Sayre, dean of Wash ington Episcopal Cathedral. The dean is a grandson of Presi dent Woodrow Wilson. Speaking from the Cathedral pulpit, Dean Sayre told his con gregation the voters faced a bleak choice between "a man of dangerous ignorance and devastating uncertainty" on the one hand, and on the other, a cynical manipulator of power who has displayed "a private lack of ethic." In a statement issued in re sponse to inquiries, Bishop Creighton said: "I do not agree with the sub stance of the Dean s sermon. Perhaps I have more confi dence in the American people's ability to make wise political choices than the Dean has. "I would prefer to judge the candidates in the forthcoming election on the basis of their programs for international peace and human rights and for the alleviation of human need rather than on the basis of questionable analyses of their personal characters." and I thought I worked hard before." He said he keeps a secretary working full time to handle his correspondence, keeps abreast of medical literature, is chairman of the Board of Regents at the University of Minnesota, a trustee of Carleton college, director and chief medical consultant for Mutual of Omaha Insurance company and a director of United Benefit Life Insurance company. "The clinic went on a five-day workweek July 1, and with this I disagree," he said. "I still work six long days." Dr. Mayo has attended all sessions of the two-day symposium, which climaxes a year-long observance of the one hundredth anniversary of the approximate birthdates of the famed Mayo brothers. The brothers established the Mayo clinic in 1913. The symposium is being attended by more than 2.000 doctors, scientists and scholars. Dr. Mayo believes that medical skills are very good but that further progress lies ahead. But he said such legislation as the King-Anderson bill to put medical care under social security will block efforts to attract more promising young men to medical careers. Sun-Telegram, Richmond, Ind., Friday, s jca .WJ Palladium Item Phom David E. Gettinger, Spanish teacher at Dennis junior high school, monitors as pupils in his class study the language by means of new electronic equipment. This is the first time this kind of laboratory has been put into use in a junior high school in this area. at Purdue university and also took some work in this connection at Indiana university this summer. Gettinger believes the language laboratory came too far thead the materials. He says that with the development of effective materials early criticism of this kind of teaching will die down. He plans to use tapes co Area Baptists To Attend Meeting Sunday Afternoon The First Baptist church of; Richmond will be host to the annual meeting of the East Cen tral Baptist association Sunday, Sept. 20, at 2 p. m. The association is composed of the First Baptist churches of Connersville, Centerville, Rushville, New Cas tle and Calvary Baptist of this city. The theme of the convention is "Courage To Love" and the scriptural text is 1 John 4: 18-21. Afternoon devotions will be presented by Charles Malone of New Castle and the doctrinal sermon will be preached by Rev. Kenneth Chandler, pastor of the Connersville church. The mis sionary speaker is Rev. Horace Posey Gaines, former missionary to the Philippines and now pastor of the First Baptist church of Jeffersonville. The de nominational representative will be Rev. John F. Knight of the In diana Baptist convention. Debbie Fraley, Rushville, president of the association Youth fellowship, and her co workers, will represent the World Wheat Exports Up 25; U.S. Increase 5 WASHINGTON (AP)-World exports of wheat have increased nearly 25 per cent since July 1, but the United States has par ticipated in very little of it. Government reports show world exports between July 1 and Sept. 4 totaled about 280 million bushels compared with about 215 million in the like period last year. U.S. exports totaled about 105 million bushels compared with about 100 million a year earlier, or an increase of about 5 per cent. The American Farm Bureau Federation has told members the government's new wheat program is pricing American grain out of world markets, especially markets which pay in dollars. The latter markets have taken only about 12 per cent of this marketing year's exports compared with about 33 per cent a year earlier. The bulk of the wheat has moved abroad under food for peace and related foreign aid programs. The Agriculture Department denies the Farm Bureau claim. Precut Homes Office Opened East Of Chester Glenn Muckridge, jr., is president of Gem Swift Homes, Inc., a newly formed business with an office and showroom on the East Chester road. Muckridge, an insurance representative, holds the franchise for Swift precut homes. Miniature model homes are displayed in glass showcases and customers pick them out much like ordering goods in a department store. Swift's home office is in Elizabeth, Pa., where homes are precut for shipment over the country. Muckridge's wife, Pat, is secretary-treasurer of the firm and Corvin Miller is vice-president. Muckridge plans a formal opening of his new business Sunday from 1 to 6 p. m. Sept. 18, 1964 Language . I ordinated with the class textbooks. He also 'expects that his classes will do lots of singing this semester. The I. U. instructor he studied under this summer stressed the value of teaching grammar as well as vocabulary through songs. The lab is being used for the Spanish language only at present but it is hoped French, too, can be taught in the near fu- youth in the evening session. Don McGuire, chairman of the associational board of education, also will speak on the work of that board. Special music during the meeting will be presented by a combined choir and by ensembles from the various churches. Supper will be furnished by the host church.

Two of these classes are made up of eighth graders being introduced to conversational Spanish by means of the new laboratory. Sees Faster Pace Principal John Dye says it is felt that this will lay a foundation and permit a faster pace in ninth grade Spanish classes as well as giving students an opportunity to see if they are interested in the study of the language. Latin is still offered at Dennis but does not lend itself to the language laboratory. The use of electronic audio devices gives pupils an opportunity to listen regularly to foreign speech and to practice speech production under conditions which make for proficiency, says the Dennis language teacher. The laboratory facilities can free the teacher from the tedi ous task ot presenting repeti tive drill material, thus permitting him to evaluate and guide individual student performance while the group continues its study practice, Gettinger points out. A variety of authentic native voices are on the tapes to serve as untiring models for student practice. The language lab also provides the student a reassuring sense of privacy, reducing distractions and encouraging concentration through the use of headphones. -lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllilllU T 92iVlain nllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllr SUN-PROOFER BRUSH FREE!
