Wednesday Evening, June 6, 1962. LOGANSPQKT PUBIJC irt, Indiana, Phaws-Tribune Tlire* Rain Great Boost to Crops Of Logan-land's Farmers Rain means many things, but to Logan-land farmers this week's rain was a great joy.- Crops that have been planted over the past several weeks will now germinate and grow. Paul Rogers, assistant Cass county extension agent, said that sbout 95 percent of the corn and about 90 percent of soybeans have been planted. In almost all cases where corn was planted on time, the farmers have cultivated at least once. The rains of the weekend and on Monday will hamper, to some ex- lent, cultivation of excessively weedy corn fields. However, the rain was ideal for the continued growth of the corn. WEATHER CONDITIONS have been favorable this year for corn. There was a little delay in germination because of the dry spring and the recent cool nights. The heavy moisture will, in isolated cases, promote some disease. The rain was ideal for the soybeans- just shooting through the ground. In many instance the beans had to come through hard, crusty ground, and the rain helped the process. The rain will also aid the farmers in hoeing the beans. . . Perhaps the crop that felt the brunt of the dry spring was oats. The oats,crop will be a little .short this year because of the weather conditions earlier in the year. Farmers can expect poor stands as the fields did not get enough moisture to get a good germina. - tion. However, the recent rains have helped a little, but in mosl cases the rains came too late. OATS PLANTING in the area has decreased rapidly during the past several years and is not considered to be a money crop. The rains were very beneficial for pasture areas throughout the area. Most pastures were stunted by the early season dry spell and hard winter. Rains in late April nnd early May provided the necessary moisture to get the pas- .ures.baek up to peak growth. The area wheat crop will be somewhat disappointing this year as the winter was extremely hard on the crop. However, the rains lave helped the stands in the area. Much of the winter wheat was dlled when ice formed over the fields and stood for- some length of time. 'Wanton Murder' WASHINGTON (UPI) - The State Department said Monday the free world stands aghast at the Secret Army Organization's threat to resume what it .called "wanton murder" in Algeria. State Department Spokesman Lincoln White denounced "that the merciless killing of innocent peoples" will be resumed m i d night tonight unless the OAS receives "satisfactory responses" in SEVERAL FARMERS were cul- .ing hay during the later part of ast week and the rains were very harmful to the new cut hay. Excessive moisture will not permit proper curing of hay. Farmers who have hay down are now ooking for several days 'of sunshine. Generally speaking, farming operations in Logan-land are on schedule. The forecast for crops his year appear a little better ;han the year before. This is especially true for the corn crop, Rogers slates. negotiations. He said that "such wanton murder has no excuse, no justification and .can lead only to a sadder future." THREE SHARE HONOR DETROIT (UPI) - The. only three major league players ever to have hit home runs over the right field roof of Tiger Stadium are Ted Williams, Mickey Mantle and Norm Cash.

CADOU INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) — It's going to be a long, long trail a- winding through the political swamps for reapportionment in Indiana. Despite the U. S. Supreme Court's decision • supporting reap- pwtionment in the Tennessee case, a fundamental cleavage, between the Democratic and Republican policies on this issue exi'its. Led by Governor Welsh, the Democrats are likely to write a plank for their state convention on June 22 demanding reapportionment iof both the Senate and House of the General Assembly on WOOL WORTH'S KLEENEX TISSUE 4 a?84c COSMETICS • ROM Talcum • Caitil.

The Democrats publicly main- ain that the State Constitution tipulates this method. Realistical- y, the Democrats favor this form f redistricting because it would ;ive metropolitan centers' a larger number of legislators. The )emocrats believe they can con- rol most of-the big cities. Republicans Disagree Republicans of both houses and heir nominees for the .legislature already 1 have discussed'redistrict- ng. The prevailing sentjment.is or reapportionment of the House on a population basis and of the Senate according to geography; The GOP in the past has de- ayed all typ.es of reapportionment The Most Treasured Gifts Co me From The Golden Rule THIRD FLOOR—DIAL 4166 FATHERS MT- deserves the very best A chair makes an excellent gift, one thot will give .comfort, relaxation and pleasure.. .a gift that keeps on giving.

' Thus, even the so-called federal plan, which is likely to be endorsed at the GOP state convention on June 19, means a retreat, from opposition to all forms of reapportioriment and probably results from fear that the Supreme Court might step in and force all- cut redistricting. Many years would elapse under the Republican proposal, which would require a .constitutional amendment. This would have to be adopted by-two successive ses. sions of the legislature and then approved by the voters at a general election. The GOP chiefs are well aware of this period of delay and rejoice in it. Complicating the situation is a belief that some provision must be made for women voters. The! Constitution says that redistricting should be on the basis of enumeration of male voters only. • Cynical legislators By .terms of the Constitution, this enumeration should have been conducted in 1921, but the cynical solons have disregarded this provision all through the years since. The Democrats argue that immediate reapporlionment on a population basis only is possible, merely by a bill forcing the enumeration. That has been the loudly-shouted contention of Democratic State Sen. Nelson Grills, Indianapolis, who was denied renomination in the recent primary.
