"Public support of the recent cent ennial-blueberry festival and an expressed desire by members of our community to expand the project in future years played the instrumental role in our decision," said centennial commissioner Tom Renner. The centennial commission had seven members and it is planned to increase the membership bTffie" blueberry festival commission to 12. the blueberry festival' commission will be Edwin Appleyard, Kenneth Coe, Jerry Gruber, Renner, Addison Robert and Edwin Stieve.

When Apollo 11 astronauts land on the moon the first meal will consist of peaches grown in this area, bacon squares, sugar cookie cubes, pineapple grapefruit drink and coffee, all of which was produced by the Life Support Division of the Whirlpool Corp. in a laboratory on Broad street, St. Joseph. Whirlpool, in answer to numerous requests, opened its space pantry Friday to newsmen from a large area in the midwest.

The centennial commission last February promised to place any profits from the festival in an account for future blueberry celebrations. The commission plans to hold a Second Century club report luncheon in early August. Invited will be all local businessmen and citizens who purchased 100 or more shares of centennial stock. The first task of the new blueberry festival commission will be to select a date for the 1970 celebration.

It has been suggested that the festival be scheduled closer to the harvesting time of blueberries instead of the traditional Fourth of July date. the types used in previous Apollo missions: freeze-dried bite-sized foods (those eaten directljrfrom the package), and rehydratable freeze-dried foods, which are reconstituted with water before eaten. Astronauts Armstrong, Aldrin and Michael Collins will eat at the command module according to pre-planned menus and will also have pantry items which they can select at will. The meals are referred to as "meal or and are identified to each astronaut's predetermined menu by means of a colored tab of plastic material which mates to a similar textured material on the spacecraft wall Besides iden of germs.

Pearce also commented on National-Standard's involve-ment with radial tires. The company previously announced the development of a radial tire GREATER GROWTH Pearce said he is convinced the radial tire will be widely adopted in the United States, although some passenger cars will require suspension changes. He edicted National-Standard's sales volume of radial tire machinery and wire cord will begin to grow rapidly in the early 70's, and even greater growth will follow. "Because of the large wire potential for wire-cord radial tires, we are now investigating how our new metallurgical process could be adapted specifically for this product," Pearce stated. He stated pilot operations would be directed toward wire cord, but that new machinery and plant facilities would have to be started to produce wire by conventional methods.

In summary, Pearce told stockholders "we expect that that increases the percentage of stock required for approval of certain mergers and similar transactions with another company from a simple majority to 80 per cent. The amendment was approved by an affirmative vote of 88 per cent of the company's stock. Preliminary sales and earnings for nine months were holding device which keeps the food packs from floating into space. Unlike other missions, Apollo 11 will carry pre-planned menus for only the first five days of the flight. For the duration the astronauts may select individual food items from a pantry.

These pantry items are foods which are not assembled by meals but merely packaged in catagoriesyincluding desserts, beverages, breakfast items, bite-sized cubes, salads and meats. The pantry system enables the astronauts to select at random whatever food item they desire. Dr. Norman Roth, director of the Life Support systems, said most of the fruits used in the foods that are grown in this area, are procured from local processors and represent southwestern Michigan agriculture products.

Police said Trooper Kinny was returning to the post while on patrol, when he spotted a Cadillac car in his driveway on US-12 and a man getting into the car. The trooper followed the car as it headed for Three Oaks and later stopped the car because it was not bearing any license plates. Killy said he saw a shoe box that looked familiar on the front seat of the car. Further investigation revealed a coin collection, and some miscellaneous items and money.

Trooper Kinny arrested William Patrick Rogers and James Lloyd Seals, both of Chicago. He brought the two back to the post and then went to check his home. He found the home had been broken into. Rogers was charged with breaking and entering and being AWOL from the U.S. Army and Seals was charged with breaking and entering.
