Caston had asked the state for 800,000 as a start towards a new ligh school. Officials of both chools had hoped to start con- truction this summer, but these chances are now slight. The use of bonds to raise mo- ley in each case hinges on a tale supreme court decision, exacted by June 1. on whether schopl corporations should base he two per cent bonding power in their assessed valuation or rue valuation. If the court rules hat schools have, the power to >ond up to two per cent of their rue valuation, both Logansport and Caston . could raise enough money to build their schools. IF THIS method fails, however, second alternative remains. A niilding corporation could be ormed by private citizens who would raise the required amount if money and build the schools, ['he school corporation, in turn, vould "buy back" the property over a period of years. A building corporation would M'obably be the most expensive method; requiring four to five per cent interest as compared wit! .hree to four per cent interest on jonds. Plans for the two Logansport junior high schools are well ad vanced, and approximately $100, !00 in property and architect's 'ees has been sppnt on them already. Superintendent Carl A, Zimmerman said both are needec :o relieve present overcrowding and to anticipate future popula- ,ion growth. THE STADIUM junior high school would accommodate all oJ .he present Lincoln junior high school students leaving that area entirely to the high school. Some 1,558 students are presently enrolled in classes at the high school iuilding and 100 additional are expected next fall. The Columbia junior high school would accommodate students from ,he present Riley junior high school which, in turn, would be used as an elementary school. Two years ago the school bozird, acting on the possibility that ,both a state loan and the sale of bonds would not provide the necessary building funds, named five direc tors for a building corporation They are: Clarence Booher, Jack Hunter, Overton Hershberger,, Leo Hen'dricks and Richard Camblin The corporation has remained dormant pending an answer from the state on (lie request for loan. • THE HIGH SCHOOL in the Cas ton corporation was to have been built at the geographical center the four-township district, jus north of the.Cass county line in Fulton county. It would replace the present North • Caston anc South Caston high schools; local' ed. at Fulton and Twelve Mile respectively. Superintendent Thomas Brum mett said Tuesday that Caston could have started construction on the new school this summe had the loan of $800,000 been ap proved by the state, He said the Caslon school board must .now aw.ait the outcome of the cour bond ruling and consider a star on a cumulative building fund. LOGANSPORT already has $352 : 665 in a cumulative building funi and should have close to $700,00 by the end of the year. The func will ease considerably the $2 nu lion cost of the junior hig' schools. The Logansport and Castoi school boards'will both delve infc their financial problems at meet ings early next month. The Logansport board is scheduled ti meet June 4, and the Caston board, June 5. v CASS COUNTY Tax Collections Up By $42,000 Spring personal profcity and real estate taxes in 108il in Oass county were up more than $4!!,000 ver the amount collected during le same period one year earlier ccording to figures released: by ounly Treasurer Forest Monl- ;omery Tuesday.

His desir.e to keep ; pace \vtth the changing world has prompted Caughcll to sign a contract for another year of teaching. The alert, well-liked principal also combines farming a, 17(i-acre farm in Adams township with his leacln'ng'.schedHle. He instructs the seventh and eighth grades and the fifth and sixth grade math at Burrows.' In September, 1911, Mr. Coughcll signed a contract to teach at the Great Eastern 'School in Adams township, Carroll county. His second year found him at the Compromise school in Carroll county. Later he taught at Burncttsville, Lockport, Hopcwcll school, two schools in Tippccanoe county, Jefferson township, Adams township consolidated. Rock. Creek, Burlington, Lake Cicott in Cass county, Gillani tiwiship in Jasper county, and the past eight years at Burrows as teacher-principal.' One of the tenants of teaching that has remained part of, his life throughout the 50 years has been "N'o discipline-^No school," But, he states, "that discipline can be tempered with love and understanding."

Co John Glenn, will be honored a the 14th annual Emmy award show tonight but will not be present to accept their honors. Because neither of the glamorous national figures qualify as performers, they were voted special awards by the National Academy of Television Arts and 'Sciences. ' Scores of professional stars will ton on hand; however, to compete -for 26 golden Emmys on a nationwide telecast ernanating from Hollywood, New York and Washington, D.C. Mrs. Kennedy's appearance on the' famed White House tour and astronaut Glenn's historic orbit flight and subsequent television appearances won overwhelming votes, from 6,000 academy .members, but officials decided their shows were unfair competition 'for television's hundreds of actors and actresses.

The window is 'on a landing on Die stairs leading to the Statehouse. Office employes found the window had been opened from the top down. "It would have taken a' very athletic person or persons to have climbed over the lower window, but that undoubtedly was the way entry was made," Mrs. Gardner said. Kennedy Still Drums Support l : or Medicare WASHINGTON (UPI) - Presi- cent Kennedy struck out at critics of his medical care bill again lo- cay in the aftermath of the American Medical Association's charge that it is just "a cruel hoax and a delusion."

A MA Calls Medicare 'Cruel Hoax NEW YORK (UPI)-The American Medical Association (AMA) mounted an unprecedented assault on President Kennedy's medical care tprogram Monday ndght, calling it a step toward nationalized medicine. which still would not protect the neediest. Using a paid .television forum CNBC network), AMA speakers tagged the King-Anderson bill to finance hospital care , for the aged through Social Security "a cruel hoax and a delusion." "It wastefully covers millions who do not need it," declared Dr. Edward R. Annis'of; Miami. "It heartlessly ignores millions who do need coverage. It is .not true insurance.'It will create an enormous and unpredictable burden on every'working taxpayer. It of- teus sharply limited benefits. . "It iWUl undercut .and destroy the wholesome growth of private, voluntary insurance and prepayment" healtti programs for the. aged which offer flexible benefits in, the lull range of individual needs.". Predicts Higher Taxes Annis, a surgeon and chairman of'' the AMA speakers bureau, the icing-Anderson bill would increase payroll tax deductions by as much as 17 per 1 cent at the very start. "If our .government wants lo move now toward welfare; state medieine-rthen let them tell us so honestly," Annis declared. i'Why sneak it in piece by piecp on the backs of old. people first? "The King-Anderson crowd intends to. take us all the way down lihe road to a new system of medicine for everybody—and don't •mistake it. England's nationalized medical program is the kind of thing they have in mind ftp us eventually." , Annis' declarations brought, a swift reply from Abraham Ribi- coff, secretary of health, education and welfare, who issued a statement at 2:45 a.m., EOT, today calling the AMA presentation "just another staging of 'let's fool the American 'people attain.' " Mininuz«s Tax Hike Ribicoff said the 17 per cent hike in payroll taxes cited by the AMA would amount to only about $2 a month. He denied AMA charges' that the American system of medicine wculd be destroyed, saying the only difference would be fcat hospital bills would 1» paid through the Social Security system. The nationwide association ot doctors spent possibly as much ast $100,000 to' presenl the program—"Your Doctor Reports"— O'rer a 190-station network just one day after President Kennedy talc to television to rally support fcr his program. The AMA telecast was staged aihid the litter left in Madison Square Garden by the 18,500 per- s<jns who cheered. Kennedy — but without an audience.
