Early Figures Boost County To Mo. 10 in Population Tippecanoe County moved up to 10th spot on Indiana's new population chart, according to figures released by the state's public health statistician. Robert A. Calhoun, who heads the records division of the State Board of Health, said his figures were based on the latest available preliminary figures from the recent U.S. Census Bureau's 1970 population count. Tippecanoe County, with a new population figure of 108,259, moved past LaPorte County to 10th position. La-Porte, which was 10th in 1960 with 95,111, dropped to 11th with a 1970 figure of, 104,344. In 1960, Tippecanoe's population was 89,122. STUDENT COUNT CITED Calhoun said he felt the higher rate of gain for Tippecanoe County in the prelimi-: nary 1970 census was because the enumerators "did a better job of counting students." Tippecanoe is the home of Purdue University. Indiana's gain of approximately 10 per cent over the last 10 years apparently will be less than the national increase in population, Calhoun said. He said a preliminary estimate indicates the national gain will be nearer 14 per cent than 10 per cent, but warned that changes are certain as the preliminary figures are replaced later with final figures. STATE 5.1 MILLION The preliminary figures show Indiana's 1970 population to be 5,140,334. Marion County, with a 1970 Rural Home Loot Worth $1300 A rural Tippecanoe County home was victimized of $1,300 in property by burglars overnight, authorities reported. The Roger Horn home, Rt. 1, West Point, was broken into when thieves kicked in the front door. A riding lawnmower, saber saw, two power drills, a circular saw, tools and a golf cart were among missing items. Also taken were a camera and a flashlight, it was reported. State police and Tippecanoe County police investigated. Home Theft Of TV Set Cash Reported An early Friday morning burglary in Lafayette resulted in a loss estimated at over $500, city police said. The Delmer Noe residence, 614 S. 31st St., was entered when burglars broke the glass in a rear door, police said. A "piggy" bank containing $312 in cash and a television set valued at over $200 were taken. The break-in was reported at 3:12 a.m. Friday. A gas station burglary at the Sinclair station, at Wide-water on Canal Road, was under investigation Friday morning by state police de-t e c t i v e s and Tippecanoe County police. No details were available. A television set valued at $70 was reported stolen from a car at a downtown parking lot Thursday.

Water Main Repair Called Tedious Job Lafayette Waterworks men continued tedious repairs Friday of a complex set of three breaks in a 24-inch main near the Canal Road Pumping Station , hoping for more cool, wet weather. " City Controller William Vanderveen, acting mayor in the absence of Donald W. Blue, who is on vacation, esti- mated Friday the big main could not be repaired and 'normal pumping capacity restored until about next Wednesday. Vanderveen said to his knowledge the damaged main has caused no discoloration of household water supplies and has created no danger of contamination. The break, nearly 20 feet underground, has limited the plant's daily pumping capacity to around eight million gallons, Vanderveen said. Fortunately, a week of cool, damp weather conditions has cut average daily consumption by the city's 13,000 domestic and industrial customers to six to seven million gallons a day. "If the weather gets hot and turns dry before the breaks are repaired, we may have to ask residents of the city to please not sprinkle lawns, fill backyard swimming pools, wash cars or use water unnecessarily," Vanderveen said. "So far we have been lucky and have not had to insist on this." Waterworks records show that on July 1, when temperature soared to a season-high 102-degree reading, waterworks customers used 12.5 million gallons. The next day, when it reached- 102 again, the plant pumped 11.6 million gallons. On July 16, the day the broken main was first detected, 11.9 million gallons were used.

Thus the most under-represented would be the 8th, if preliminary figures prevail through the official census count. discovery of the break, asked residents to cut back on unnecessary use of water, it rained, and turned cooler all on July 18, and consumption dropped to 7.6 million gallons. Consumption has ranged between 6.3 million and 7.6 million gallons since then. Vanderveen said an inspection of the big main after excavation showed it was fractured in two places at a T-fitting, and at a third place in a joint. The T-fitting is situated against the concrete wall of a valve housing vault and is most difficult to repair, Vanderveen said. The process involves tearing out part of the wall, a risky task because of the chance of inflicting accidental damage to the valves within the vault. One step involved in the repairs, installation of a 24-inch cut-off valve in the line, is scheduled for Friday night, Vanderveen said. He estimated earlier in the week the repair job may cost $10,000 or more. DON'S Small Engine Clinic Factory Authorized Parts, Service NEED PARTS? TRY US! Daily 8 to 5 P.M.
