'2,000 Damage In Break-in at Bowling Alleys At a cost of a possible $2,000 in destructive vandaism, thieves Manday morning broke into the Suburban Bowling Lanes south of Tipton on route 19 and .escaped with $169.60 in silver coins and/Or cigarettes. The theft and destuction was not discovered until around 2- p.m. Monday afternoon when proprietor Bob Crull returned to the building to open the lanes for the afternoon, after closing them around midnight Sunday. Entering the building he found debris littering the entire standing room area at the west end of the building. Shoes had been pulled from their racks beneath the counter and along with papers and iboxes, made a two-foot high mess behind the counter. Two pin-ball machines had been broken open; two cigarette machines were looted of a total of $85.10 in cigarettes and coins; a soft drink machine bad been broken into and rifled of S43.10; $26.80 had been taken from a machine which' vends sandwiches and another $14.60 from an auto-, matic ice cream vender. The vending machines were a scene^of destuction which will take five 'men a total of three" weeks to repair at a cost of approximately $1,000. Lockers Broken In addition, every locker in the men's locker room, containing private bowling balls, bowling shoes and various personal items include ing bank books and one known -wrist watch; had been forced open with many of the locks irremediably damaged. Total destruction including that to the vending machines could reach a figure of- $2,000. Owners-of the vending machines said their loss was Jnot covered by insurance although Crull said that he had insurance on the locker room damage. Sheriff Clyde Overdorf was investigating the Tipton county de : struction and he call for the aid of State Police Detective Sgt. Merkel, who dusted all of the damaged surfaces for fiieerprints and uncovered a number of prints which will be examined against criminal files and held for comparison with suspects later uncovered in the investigation. Done by Amateurs The owners of the vending machines gave it as their opinion, through previous such experiences that tire destruction was the work of "amateurs", probably teen ag- ers. They said the "professional" does not bother with the merchandise, such as cigarettes, but confines his activity to emptying the cash boxes as quickly as possible ,"nd gett'ne awav from the scene. The work of forcing open the lockers in 1he men's locker room indicated that the thieves, who broke into the building from <a small door at the northeast end of the building, had spent at least four hours in the 'Continued on page 6) BREAK-IN AT BOWLING ALLEY VENDING MACHINES BROKEN in Monday morning breakin at the Suburban Bowling Lanes on state road 19 south of town are shown here.

(UPI) — An explosion heard more than 3 miles, 'away' shattered the Doe Run plant of the Olin Mathieson Chemical Corp. early today, causing v damage estimated at several million dollars and injuring at. least 30 employes. A hospital at Elizabethtown, Ky., admitted 14 victims of the blast for treatment 'of injuries, and others were treated elsewhere. Three of the injured were reported in serious condition, including one man who was first listed as missing but later was found in the wreckage. The first explosion occurred at 5:10 a.m. in a storage tank of ethylene.oxide, a highly volatile chemical. Other smaller blasts followed. Fires burned in the area until after 8 a.m. "It is a miracle that it was nothing worse," said Joe Street, personnel manager of the 100-acre plant. The explosions shattered buildings in about half the plant area, and blew out windows in homes and stores in Brandenburg, two to three miles away. .A" cloud of smoke could be seen from at least 25 miles away, and the first blast awoke residents of Louisville, Ky.; more than 30 miles to the northeast. . . • The first report from the Meade (Continued on page t) Mental Health Center Is Discussed by County Chapter Plans were made for coordinating a health center in conjunction with Hamilton county when the Tipton county chapter of the Mental Health association met Monday evening in the social room of the Farmers Loan and Trust company. The date for a May drive will be announced later. . ' The group also formulated plans for showing various films concerning children being placed in mental institutions with adults. Of approximately 400 committed, only five received treatment. It is hoped to emphasize the fact (that it would cost the state approximately $5,000 to treat a child with mental illness and returned to its family, while if it is left in institutions for a lifetime without .treatment the cost would toe $180,000. VVTHILE-His disciples slept, Jesus spent the night in " the Garden of Gethsemane in prayer.

(Master teachers 'wW.h not meeting of the Jefferson township \ more t nan two preparations .same (parent-iieachsr meeting Monday Viight. Ciifton Cardwell, chairman of- .the committee which prepared the plan, presided. The following printed data was distributed to those attending. Advantages of Consolidation 1. There are adequate rooms at Tipton Junior High and Tipton Senior High School to house the projected enrollment of grades 7-8 and 9-12 of the entire district. 2. Better educational opportunities for all Jefferson Township, Madison Township, and Tipton-Cicero Township High School students will exist because of the broader curriculum which can and will be offered when and if consolidation becomes a reality. 3. Classes for different levels of achievements may be organized in order that each child may be challenged and recognized for his at­ tainmentsthat is, chemistry for the homemaker need not foe the same chemistry taught to the college bound student. 4. A student who is not college bound may participate in a variety of courses which will provide him with 'marketable skills (typing, •bookkeeping, shorthand, drafting, woodworking; metal shop,.etc.). 5. Special programs and instruction for the slow learners in the junior high school and the senior high school will assist each child in reaching his potential (remedial reading, developmental reading, and so forth). A. A non-graded M-l Special Edr ucation class for the slow learners in grades two through six is now in the process of being established. In such a class each child may be fitted for assuming his niche in society. 7. Each student will have the opportunity to participate in a broad counselling program; from orientation, for the group to individual counselling concerning personal problems: 8. Competition brings forth higher academic achievement from the •academfiaily talented! hr giifted student: the oreiter the number of students enrolled, the more competition. 9. .Summer school courses will be available to the child who has to repeat as well -as for the child who desires to broaden the scope of his elective program. This enables the child to enrich his educational background. 10. The Junior High School can be a truly exploratory educational experience (home economics, industrial arts, instrumental and vocal music, 'art, general science, developmental reading, guidance, etc.). 11. Quality teachers are more easily attracted to and more eas- snbject taught to two ''or three classes) will do a better teaching job than will the teacher who has four, five, or six preparations. Each can become a specialist in his own subject field. 13. As preparation is the most important factor in a learning situation the greater number enrolled in each class will require better preparation on .the part of the teacher. 14. Through supervision all elementary pupils will receive similar •instruction in preparation for the educational experiences in the same junior and senior high school. 15. Jefferson Township has accumulated in its Cumulative Building Fund $113,330134. If consolidation is affected this money becomes an asset of .the new corporation. 16. The only- indebtedness in the Tipton-Cicero Township School Corporation is on the Tipton High School. The Board of School Trustees, Tipton-Cicero Township School Corporation, has spent $157,000.00 school, has paid off $16,000.00 in bonds, has spent $330,000.00 from the Cumulative Building Fund in •the construction of the new building and has repaid the Holding Corporation $130,350.00 on that portion of the building which was built and furnished by the corporation. The summation of the above figures is $633,350.00. This figure represents approximately one- fn»rth of tntnl of Tipton High School. When school corporations merge, the assets and liabilities of each corporation are added and assumed as the assets and liabilities of - the proposed unit.. 17. The only other bonded indebtedness of the three corporations is in Madison Township where approximately $22,000.00 remains to 'be rcaid on the addition to the Curtisville School ia 1956. Disadvantages of Consolidation 1." The small high school loses its identity; however, the elementary school continues as .the social center of the commun ; j*v. 2. The chance of a close teacher - student relationship decreases as the enrollment increases. • 3. Supervision of boys and girls in the outlying schools necessitates a longer day for .teachers as they must -arrive earlier and cannot leave until the school busses have picked up the children for the return home. • 4. If the consolidation is effected some pupils will, of necessity, be on the school busses longer each day. Participation of hoys and girls in extra-curricular activities will necessitate additional parent taxi service. 5. The greater the length of the (Continued on Page 6) Cub Pack 3092 On Candy Plant Jour The school vacation provdied an opportunity for Tipton's Cub Pack 3092 to take a sweet field trip Tuesday. -..-'-• The rock candy mountain is not readily accessible, but pack officials found, a goal in the nearby city of Frankfort.

Blinded by the lights of a passing car, Johnny Miller, 136 Sweetland avenue, Tipton, drove his 1962 car into'a parked 1959 convertible in Goldsmith Monday night. 'Damage to the Miller car was estimated by the sheriff's office at $300, and to the parked- car of Larry Pioughe, $200. 30-N A $200 "across the- boarrl" annual pay increass fcr teachers, effective January 1, 1963, was a a-, proved Monday night by the Tipton-Cicero township school board. The increase, requested by the welfare committee of the classroom teachers' association, is designed to. hold present good teachers and attract qualified new personnel, and keeps Tipton in the medium art'a of salaries as compared with school systems'of similar size. .Superintendent Wisehart exp'ain- ed that a study of the larger, new and .more progressive schools showed that most of them are now adjusting their school budget with the. teacher salaries and that with school budgets determined on the calendar year starting January 1,. hte board had decided to place its teacher salary schedules on tha same system. The new salary schedule when, prepared-also will contain a paragraph giving the 'board a measure of control in.gaining continued gDo.l performance from teachers. The measure provides that the board may withhold the automatic an­ nua! increment from, the salary of a teacher who has been non-cooperative, insubordinate, or non-progressive. Assigning responsibility - for the. audio-visual program to a teacher at each school, who would be pa ! d an extra $100 a year was deferred until, an expanded audio-vix-ud. program shall be presented Co the board. Also continued was consideration of adjustment of u\cre- nie'nts of high, school coaches, and the request for raising the salary cf elementary teachers assuming athletic coaching duties. . It was decided to spend about., S350 repairing the roof of Jefferson school with two coatings of long fibre absestos, the work to be done by school custodial employees. The repair, deemed to last a year, i,v a temporary solution, as a new roof for the building is considered necessary after that time. After discussion with Jim Riley, the board voted to enter upon a lease agreement for the use of Riley's truck in school haulitv-*. The figure agreed upon was $f0 a. month, plus insurance. A goal of the board?, in the near future, is to obtain a truck for the school system.- ' AS driver training is to be offered by the high school this summe-, negotiatians will be made soon with dealers for furnishings two cars fur such use.
