Two Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Body Of Delphi Teacher Found DELPHI—The body of 24-year- olc] Larry McClellan was pulled from 50 feet of water at Lake Freeman, six miles north of Delphi, after a search that lasted close to 24 hours. The body was located at almost the exact spot where the Delphi teacher drowned Monday afternoon while swimming with a com. panion, Jim Hertling. ' In the boat that found the body with a drag bar were Carroll county Deputy Sheriff Gilbert • Underhill and a volunteer from JFK Renews AM A Charge WASHINGTON (TJPI) - President Kennedy renewed his fight with the American Medical Association Tuesday in a caustic letter challenging the AMA to prove it does not oppose the Social Security system. The latest round in the dispute over Kennedy's medical care plan —to be financed through the Social Security system—came in an exchange of letters between the President and' Dr. Leonard W. Larson, president of the medical association. It involved Kennedy's assertion —which Larson denied—that the AMA was an enemy of the whole idea of Social Security. The President has linked the association with the charge heard in the 1930 that Social Security was a "cruel hoax." At Bismarck, S.D., AMA President Dr. Leonard W. Larson denied that the association is opposed to basic principles of Social Security. As for Kennedy's challenge to the AMA, he said: "All I can say, until I see the material he sent out, is that the record speaks for itself. The American Medical Association did not oppose the original (Social Security) legislation. In fact.it testified only on those parts of the bill which had to do with health services. It testified in favor of that portion of the bill." Meanwhile Sen. Clinton P. Anderson, D-JN.'M., co-author of the bocial Security medicare legislation, accused the AMA of using "distortions and outright misstatements" in opposition to the President's plan. In a Senate speech, Anderson said for one thing the AMA was wrong in claiming that the bill would destroy private health insurance. He said on the contrary it would encourage expansion of private plans to supplement the measure's basic coverage. Medaryville Man Fined After Crash MONTICELLO—Eugene R.

ACCEPT TRUCK BID PERU — The Miami County Commissioners accepted a bid of $2,594.78 f jr an International Harvester track submitted by the McCornick Farm Equipment Co. There was only one other bid submitted. Logansport, Al Foster. Over 50 volunteers, as well as state police and sheriff departments from Carroll and White counties, were engaged in 'attempting to locate the drowned man. Hertling told authorities that McClellan had jumped out of the boat into the rough water and the boat began to drift away. Hertling stated he tried to move back toward McClellan and then, "He suddenly went down and never came up." Underhill and Foster came across the body shortly after 5 p.m. Tuesday. McClellan had been employed as a teacher in the Delphi school system for the past two years and had an appointment with School Superintendent Wayne Eikenberry Tuesday morning to sign his contract for the coming year. Eikenberry said that McClellan was due for a "nice promotion," in that he would take over the coaching chores of the freshman arnd junior varsity basketball teams at Delphi. He had coached junior high football, basketball and track teams the past year. The native of Dugger, Ind., had taught mathematics, in the seventh, eighth and ninth gardes at Delphi. Eikenberry said, "It's a great loss for us. He was tremendously popular with the school children." McClellan attended Purdue University for two years and then graduated from Indiana State College at Terre Haute. He was one of nine, children of. Mr. and Mrs. Ralph McClellan of Dugger. He was born in Sullivan County on Aug.. 19, 1937. The body was taken to the Eikenberry Funeral Home in Delphi. It was to be transferred Wednesday to the Newkirk Funeral Home in Dugger where final rites are pending. Wednesday Evening,'June 6, 186S. IT TAKES TWO WRECKERS TO FREE ONE CAR PERU—It took two wreckers to get one car out of a ditch on U.S. 31 two miles north of Peru Monday night during the heavy rainstorm. But it wasn't because the car was that deep in the mud. The auto, driven by James Roush, of Rochester, slid into the ditch when the driver was unable to see to drive during the torrent of rain. He pulled off onto the berm and then the car slid into the ditch. A wrecker was called from Mexico to pull Roush's car out, but in attempting to do so, the wrecker also skidded into the ditch. Both vehicles were later freed when a second wrecker was called to the scene. Sfare Unemployment 1 Claims Show Increase INDIANAPOLIS.
