Ten Logansport, Indiana Pharos-Tribune 'New Look 1 In Phone Bills Due Telephone customers in the Logansport area will be greeted with a "new look" in their statements sent during May, according to H. J. Cowin, division manager of General Telephone. Receiving the new style statements are customers in Galveston, Lucerne, Royal Center, Walton, Young America, and Logansport. All of the company's customers will be receiving the restyled bills by the first of June. THE STATEMENTS, which will arrive in windowed envelopes, have been redesigned to give customers more complete, easy-to- read information. There are two parts to the bill, a punch card and a statement of charges. Both parts are to be returned when making payment in person at the business office or collection agency; the punched card will be retained by the company and the statement of charges will be marked "paid" and returned to the customer for his personal record. The statement will include items such as the amount of previous bill, payments, unpaid balances, adjustments, service connection charges, partial month billing, local service charges, directory advertising, tax, etc. THE STATEMENTS will measure about seven and one - half inches by five and on-half inches. Customers will receive a separate statement of long distance calls enclosed with their new bills, as -in the past. However General Telephone is starting a program to make an itemized list of long distance calls right on the bill. During June -and July, some of the long distance calls will appear itemized on the bill, but the remainder will still be on the separate statement. Eventually, all charges will appear itemized on one bill form to make the bill easier to read, and if kept for records, easier to file. INCLUDED WITH the information given on long distance calls will be the complete spelling out, in Kitfst instances, of the city called; the telephone number called at 'the location; the length of the call, and its type, such as credit card, collect, etc. General Telephone of Indiana is the; second company in the General Telephone System, which operates in 32 states, to utilize the new statements, General of California was the first. In October, 1961, the Indiana company installed an IBM 1401 computer at its general of/ice headquarters in Fort Wayne. The machine, which is comprised 'of three units—a central processing unit, reader punch, and printer- is capable of printing 600 line per minute and is being used to prepare the new statements, Cowin stated. Slate GOP Choosing Leaders - By EUGENE J. CADOU INDIANAPOLIS (UPI)- Serenity- prevailed as newly eleclec members of the Republican State Committee met here today to choose state party officials. All indications were that all incumbents would be reelected be cause of minimum friction in the GQP's state organization. The incumbents are Thomas A Gallmeyer, Fort Wayne attorney chairman; Mrs. Esther Guthridge Fowler, vice-chairman; James T Neal, editor of the Noblesville Daily Ledger, secretary, and Stanley Byrum, owner of the world's largest goldfish hatchery at Mar tinsville, treasurer. The terms of two other party officials do not expire until 1964 They are Walter Beardsley, Elk hart drug manufacturer and cap italist, national committeeman and Mrs. lone Harrington, Ches terton, national committeewoman Brown A Possibility Reports persisted that Gallmey er may resign after the Novem ber election to practice law ex clusively and that he may be sue ceeded by H. Dale Brown, Indi •anapolis, llth District chairman Brown has said he would cheer fully accept the stale post if am when Gallmeyer retires. Brow: Saturday won, 636 to 216, over E Allen Hunter, incumbent, for Mar ion County chairman and will con tinue to hold both posts. Brown is close to Sen. Home E.. Capehart, c running for reelec tion, and appears to be booming Lt.' Gov. Richard 0. Ristine Crawfordsville, for the 1064 guber natorial nomination. The forthcoming GOP state con verttion will be as dull as dish •water in all likelihood because o the harmony spirit with no clos contests looming. All GOP incum bents seem cinches for renomina tioh. However, there may be som scrambling for the nomination fo state superintendent of public in struction, a position now held b a Democrat, towering William 'Wilson.. Xlicrc Is some 1964 talk amon U.

Cooke Jr., USN (ret.) ormer commander of the U.S. th fleet and a. military-political trategist with a remarkable rec- rd of accurate 'prophecy,' said oday that if the Communists 'are lot stopped in Laos and South 'iet Nam they will continue to- vard conquest of all Southeast Asia. And that conquest, he said, is ust part of their overall plan to :ommunize the whole world. Cooke said he approved of Pres- dent Kennedy's action in sending J.S. Marines into Tahiland but lat the move came late and still vas not in sifficient force. "I would put at least a Marine ivision in Thailand," Cooke said T an exclusive interview with Jnited Press International. "At le same time I would put a uerrilla-trained division of Maines in South' Viet Nam—and on i fighting rather Uian merely idvisory basis." "Our decision should be to stop ;nd turn back Communist aggres- ion and we should use forces ufficient to do it. We did it in RUSSIAN ENVOY—Soviet Ambassador Analoly F.

(UPI Unifax.) ew Freshness in Kennedy's Speeches By MARRIMAN SMITH UPI White House Reporter WASHINGTON (UPI) - Backstairs at the White House: President Kennedy has developed a new form of speech com- josition which raises hob with the correspondents attempting lo chronicle his words, but adds immeasurably to the freshness and /erve of his talk. Instead of preparing an advance ext and adhering to it in actual delivery, he has long been known 'or virtually abandoning carefully written prose and veering off extemporaneously. Now, he's beginning lo abandon even prepared "excerpts." What ie likes lo do is this: Prepare extensive, typed notes on a number of subjects that may appeal to him. Then, at the actual affair, usually a dinner, he listens '.o the speakers before him and scribbles industriously as ideas strike him while others are talking. Thus, when Kennedy rises to jpeak, his content is minutes- fresh and his topical references are tailored adroitly to the audience before him. Envy Of Professionals He seems to be becoming increasingly facile at playing off on the remarks of others. Some of the best professional comedians Republicans. State Sen. p. Russell Bontrager, Elkhart, is a big favorite for the senatorial nomination against Sen. Vance Hartke, Democrat. Ristinc In Front Ristine seems to be in front for governor and there is likelihooc that Robert Gates, son of former Gov. Ralph F. Gates, will bid for lieutenant governor. Young Gates, a former American Legion state commander, practices law with his father in Columbia City. He is both Whitly County and 4th District chairman.. With former House Speaker Birch E. Bayh, Jr., Terre Haute as the leading candidate for the Democratic senatorial nomination campaigning on a libery platform 10» per cent behind Presiden Kennedy's New Frontier policies Capehart is expected to champion conservatism on nearly all issues A similar right-wing policy is like* ly for the Republicans in 1964. The GOP chiefs still believe that Indiana remains one of the most conservative states in the union and Ihey have no hopes o garnering any.backing from such labor leaders as Dallas ' Sells president of the Indiana AFL- CIO. So they will take the right turn when the road forks. n show business—'Bob Hope, Joey 3ishop, Danny Thomas and Elliott }eed, lo name a few—have seen .his trait put lo effective use. In each case, the comedian ap- )eared in a show for the President at a banquet and Kennedy spoke at the end of the evening. <\nd in each case, he ripped off a string of toppers that had the >rofessionals envious and their writers nervous. He uses topical material, some- imes truly inside local matters, .0 effective advantage. Speaking "n Milwaukee the other night, he : ished from his pile of papers a Denned note dating back to his 1960 campaign in Wisconsin. In effect, it was a promissory note by Kennedy lo visit the vil- age of Mukwonago. It seems candidate Kennedy in I960 was invited to the village. He sent the chief officer of the town, William lerrling, a written promise. In Ihe note, the President explained he could not accept the village invitation to speak because he had to address a steelworkers meeting in Pittsburgh, but would go lo Mukwonago at a later date. Forgoes Advance Text "I hate to think how many of these are distributed all over Wisconsin," the President said, "and I am going to have lo go. You may have lo give me several years, but I will go." En route to Milwaukee last weekend to address a Jefferson- Jackson Day dinner, the President planned and had prepared an advance texl of his speech. But then he decided to drop the documentary approach and speak entirely from notes. "In this way," a friend told him, ."you don't have to get your speech cleared by the Pentagon," He smiled broadly at the banquet head table and .returned to scribbling notes to himself, minutes before he spoke.

Retired Unwillingly Cooke was commander of the 7,th Fleet from June, 1946 to February, 1948. Retired unwillingly at the mandatory age of 62 in 1948, he continued military activity as adviser to Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek and frequent consultant to Gen. Douglas MacArthur during the Korean War. It was at his California ranch that he talked with this corre- spqndent about the latest Far Eastern crisis. Cooke recalled that in May, 1945, Fleet Admiral Ernest King asked him. for a memo on the Navy's role in the postwar years. Cooke told him that: —Unless the United States prevented it, Russia would expand too fast and too far. —Unless the United States prevented it, the Communists would take over China. —In order to carry out U.S. policy, all services must be prepared to carry out local war. "Nobody believed that," he said er Says Stopped today, "until Korea." Cooke said that in 1948, when the U.S. government ordered its troops out of South Korea, he found it incredible, and said so in an interview with Frank H. Bartholomew, former president and present chairman of the bnard of United Press Inler- nalional. He said he considered it "disastrous" in January, 1950, when U.S. government policy put Korea outside U.S. defense lines. The North Koreans, with Russian and later Chinese Communist backing, attacked in June. When the Korean cease-fire talks began, Cooke warned that if the Chinese Communists were let off without a decisive defeat they would move into Norlh Viet Nam. In 1955 North Viet Nam surrendered. Cooke said he did not believe the Communists intend lo attack Thailand immediately, but that with Laos practically lost the Reds have a pathway to new at- takcs in South Viet Nam and for threats to Thailand.
