Diatr, by United Feature Syndicate, Inc. 33 Public Forum We, the undersigned, nominate candidates for the offices of Trus lee and Advisory Board, of Unior Township, Fulton County, Indiana do hereby wish to defend the vot ers of said Union Township, .foi their overwhelming vole agains the school reorganization plan, at presented in the primary eleclion We feel that it does not mean lha the voters were against a schoo reorganization, but were agains some technicalities within the pre sented plan. ' First, many were opposed lo thi unfair taxation to pay the indebt edness for the new grade schooU in Rochester, while the Union Township grade children will be housed in buildings that are ap proximately 54 and 34 years old Many were opposed to a one school unit having more represen tation on the Board than the other three units; also many realizet that if every voter in Union Town ship voted for a candidate for Board member, their choice o representation could be defeated by voters outside the Township as demonstrated in the recent pri. mary election. Secondly, many people are asking: was the voting at this time actually legal? This question arises because a township had pending a decision in Grant County Circuit Court, However, we are quick to realize that by including this township's population woulc have a tendency to cast 'quite a favorable looking tax breakdown structure per . township percentage wise. However, should this township leave Fulton County the Rochester debt would be divided among fewer taxpayers. Union township presently stands subject to pay 17 per cent of Rochester debt plus donating surplus now on hand. We, the undersigned, feel greatly disappointed that our elected legislators, at State level, woulc: construct laws 'and programs lhat are adaptable to so few situations, and have • been used, in Fulton County to force us lo help pay our neighbors debls. How can a Counly Board, called able and capable, after so much study, feel justified in presenting this program of reorganization?

We had told" previously about Roscoe Creery's suggestion that the driver looked like Warner Sturgeon, because of the heavy mustache. We talked to a nephew of Mr. Sturgeon, T. R, Vance, who is Logansport's last harness-maker of the scores who once plied that trade at the Mouth of Eel. Mr. Vance remembered his .uncle Warner very well, but couldn't be sure that he was the man on the driver's seat behind that tine team of dappled grays. Then Mrs. Bertha Emery reported that she felt certain that the unknown driver was her., father, Charles W.. Weeks, also a horse-lover who frequently drove for'Mr. Stewart. Last week Mr. Ralph Miller^ of R.R, 1, called to say that he knew Mr. Weeks very well, and felt sure lhat-it was he who appeared in the picture you saw in the Press. That (iorrobora- tion is sufficient; unless someone else offers evidence to disqualify, we'll assume that all those Whose faces appeared in that picture have been identified satis- factorily.'Now, if some one will identify the -blank brick wall, before which the picture was taken, we'll considers the matter of the open-faced cab closed. It may interest the reader to know that, as this story is being. type/1, the funeral of Mrs. , Bess Stewart Hockrhan, oldest daughter of Earl,Stewart, is.J>eing conducted from., the Fisher• Mortuary. Mrs.vHockman has lived away from Logarisport for many years, and the writer, didn't know that she WHS ill. .The Stewart family was a near neighbor of the writer fifty-odd years ago;, sp we knew them very well. That was after Mr, Stewart had disposed of .his livery stable, which he had conducted very successfully for many years on Fourth street, near the Pennsylvania depot, just recently removed. In fact, Mr. Stewart was one of the real estate owners who 75 years ago vacated part of his property to make room for the new street extension that went eastward around the new depot. Two weeks ago today we asked, in the column, for butter molds, in one pound size, ,as either loan or gift. That was the Sunday before the primary electron, and members of the Republican election Boards were called to an instruc- tion'meeting in the Court House. Thti writer was a member of one of the .'Boards, and as he walked down North street on his ,way to the ; Court House a resident stopped him. and offered a mold as a loan. We accepted gladly, and carried it with us t;.) ' the meeting, where several of the old-timers present commented about'it. One lady settled a : matter that had perplexed us ever since we ..conceived the project that called for the use of the molds: how did the home -butter-makers of "the last century keep the butter from'sticking to the mold? i \ The molds are'of wood, and the butter, made, as it was of necessity, -at room temperature, would be inclined to adhere to anything it touched. The little lady 'said; as she passed the writer: v "You knew, you ;m'ust wet this 'mold before you use it." That lifted a load from our mind, At the same time-we were provoked that we hadn't thought of .so simple a solution ourselves. We've had a fine response to our request; three others have offered molds, two as loans and one as a gifli. Alvin Crowe, of Walton R.FD, is Ihe donor. No two of the four offered have the same .design carved in the top, which is highly satisfactory. Our purpose is to arrange a display .of old-time butter-malting equipment. We have 1 three tj'pes of churn, with.another promised; also the large wooden bowl in which mother "worked" the. water out of the churned butter, If this were -not done thoroughly the butter wouldn't keep satisfactorily. We propose' to use the mold we have accumulated to miake imitation "rolls" of butter, using paraffin as the material from which to cast the rolls. . Another -thing 1 bothered us: Paraffin is a pearly gray; bullet' is yellow, so we intended to paint the castings. However, a neighbor lady, with whom : we were discusisng the project, said: "Get fruit coloring from :lhe grocery and mix it with the melted paraffin." Another recommended butter coloring. We tried both: .the. fruit coloring won't mix with paraffin; they are water soluble, and paraffin is a vfax, and the two don't mix. Bulter color mixes nicely, but is entirely too ricli, an orange shade. So we've got a tube of oil paint, a very light yellow, and hope that it will blend with the [1 True Life Adventures I 4"^' J^o HE* &*$*$$&$ Im: uor>sEPoEE 9j£ftg& JJB '•••,t.2«1R. l « *-\««. t*—• *-* w-, i ,—- •.";?.! lw.>!?.A.<\f, ILf TIWE^ A VAST T»^r?E^ P'lJ-E ACCUMUUKT&S. - •'" -""-- /; THE FLAMES KEL.EASE SEECB FROM SEA5-Et7 <2<psiEs.

As we went home the other evening we saw neighbor Carl Closson sitting on his front porch, reading Ihe evening paper, so slopped to show him the butter mold we were taking home, where we are conducting our experi- mental work. He told us that he used to operate one of those old dash churns for his Grandmother Archer when he was a small boy. Don't forget I hat it's a poor idea to quarrel before company, and remember lhat two is company. Cost of Staying Alive Directly Connected to Number of Lives Saved INDIANAPOLIS—When you go home from a hospital today—after surgical or medical care—your hospital and , doctor bills will be larger than they would have been a few years ago. What lies behind these increases? One \ factor is inflation, others are higher wages for hospital employees, and the cost of training new doctors and nurses. But one of the most important reasons is medical progress—a reason many people do not consider when they're concerned with hospital and medical costs. Today you're buying a far different and'far better kind of health care than you bought a-generation ago. You receive early treatment^ because doctors today have new, safer procedures and equipment to detect your ills. You suffer less pain because of more rapid diagnostic procedures, new anesthetics, and "wonder drugs." And you get well faster ... in half the time it took for the same condition a generation ago. People used to be sent to the hospital to die. Today they go there to live. The development of scientific medicine in recent years has resulted in a spectacular expansion of the hospital. Changes in medical procedures have resulted in a changing pattern of hospital use. Tameet new demands, hospitals have had to expand both their facilities and their equipment. The advances in diagnostic, techniques alone have required more elaborate X-ray departments and bigger laboratories. New operative procedures have demanded a great amount of higftly complicated apparatus in the department of surgery. Years ago, few things were expected from your community hospital beyond nursing care and the services of the operating room. Today, such departments as physical medicine, blood banks, prema-. ture nursery, X-ray 'therapy, recovery rooms, intensive care units, and cardiopulmonary laboratories provide new services—expensive to besure, but vitally necessary to speed recovery and restore to health people who would have been diagnosed incurably ill a few years ago. Ninety per cent of-the drugs prescribed today didn't exist 10 years ago. Drugs . and medicine and rehabilitation have lifted thousands from the beds they had been left in—often forgotten for years. Life expectancy has been extended from about 50 years at the turn of the century to more than 70years today, and will.be extended still further. Operations are now performed successfully that would not have been attempted a few years ago. Hospitals and doctors can do more For you than ever before. Childbirth was never so safe in all Kis- tory as it is today. Ba.bies born in a hospital in 1961 have a three times better chance of living than babies had 20 years ago. Pushing back the frontiers of hunian life is expensive. But if the riew tools have reasonable utility—they will be used. The valueof such expenditures must be measured by the extension of human life'and useful human functioning. Your life can be saved because of costly new treatments, medicines and equipment. If you or a member of your family is.involved, it is doubtful that you'll want the'.treatment stopped on account of the cost. You'll be ,more interested in how well it's done. Yes, hospital care costs more today. A lot more. And—make no mistake about it—it will continue to mount so long as we demand further control over death and disease. • Blue Cross and Blue Shield protection cost more, too, to cover the expense of modern hospital medical care. But the cost of "living" is always a bargain. you can't afford to be without BLUE CRO°3 SHIELD the cost of is high In the past few years your life expectancy has; Increased . . . the length of your hospital stay has decreased ... you get well easier and faster... there's greater control over your diseases.
