LOGffiSPORT PUBLIC LIBRAKY Council To Study Salaries The Logansport City Council will meet Monday night to adopt the 1963 salary schedule for em ployes in the municipal government. However, at this time not a one of the seven councilmen is sure what the final outcome will be. Most councilmen have been reluctant to reveal any of the proposed pay boosts, saying that the figures are not final and may be changed as late last Monday night. However, councilman Arthur P. (Jack) Hunter said the raises, mostly for firemen, and policemen, would not amount to over a five-cent tax rate increase, based on the old assessments. New assessment figures have not been released yet and a final lax levy cannot be established until these figures become available. Hunter said the pay increases do not necessarily mean an overall tax hike. He pointed out that funds could be cut from other items in the budget which do not involve salaries. As things now stand, fire and police department employes would receive a $20-a-month across-the- board raise. This would cover a two-year period With no more increases to be considered until the 1965 budget is prepared. Small pay increases are also being proposed for employes in utility and other departments. A "poll of councilmen during (he past week indicated that most of them did not want to commit themselves oh any salaries until they meet Monday night. The meeting is scheduled; for 8 p.m. in the third floor council chambers in the city building. Mayor Otto Neumann earlier in the week said he did not want to release the figures since it was council action and. should come from the council. Additional appropriation; amounting to $8,446 will also be considered Monday night. JF$ur Hurt In Accidents Four persons were injured, none eriously, in two auto i Salurday in Logansport.

Homer E. Capehart's bid 'or a fourth term?

The well-financed state committee will sec that he gels' anything he needs :tor his campaign.

Gravel Pit Yields Body RENNSELAER—The body of a line-year-old Cass county boy who drowned here Friday was found jy a three-man diving team at 1:27 p.m. Saturday. The'victim was Jesse •. Zeke Taylor, son of Mr, and Mrs. Fred Taylor, rural route .6, Logansport. He drowned in a gravel pit near the St. Joseph college campus. 'Thei Illinois-Indiana rescue team from Grifith, Ind., found the body within'20 minutes after two other teams had searched for several hours. The body was located just a few feet 'from where it disappeared. The drowning occurred in Critser's pit which is operated by a gravel company about 4:50 p.m. Friday; The.site or the- mishap is in the center of the large pit. The water'is about 35 to 40 feet deep at this point. ' The boy was on 100-foot wide barge with his father, according to Sheriff D. L. McCracken.' His father said he looked around and noliced that Jesse had 'suddenly disappeared. Jesse was born Dec. 28, 1953, Eastern Strike Continues NEW YORK (AP)-Flight Engineers struck two airlines Saturday, called off one walkout under a federal court order and rejected a new appeal by President Kennedy lo return lo work in the interest of • the public. Ronald A. Brown, president of the Flight Engineers International Association, said the union "wil not abdicate its right to strike." The two airlines are Pan Amer- can World Airways and Eastern Air Lines. Just Iwo hours after he walkout at 1 p.m., EST, a ederal court judge' granted Pan it, his fight looks like an uphill one. Two important factors are recent scandals involving Democratic leaders in Lake and St, Joseph counties, Ihe slale's biggest Democratic strongholds, and party factionalism remaining in Marion County from Indianapolis Mayor Charles H. Boswell's bil- and fer campaign against Bayh ic Welsh organization. It's tough, lo say the least, for Democrat to carry Indiana to Fred and Ruby Humphrey Taylor. Survivors include the parents, two brothers, Fred Leroy and Ted Eugene; a sister, Lenora Jo, and grandparents, Mr. anc Mrs, T. R. Humphrey, Lafayette, Funeral services will .be helc at 1:30 p.m.. Monday at the Millei funeral home in Monticello. The Rev. J. E. Douglas will conduct services, and burial will be in the Davis cemetery in Burnettsville, . Friends may call at the funeral home after 3:30 p.m. Sunday. SEARCH CRASH RUINS—Rescue workers stand in dense Jungle, at .Pojnle-A.Pitre, (Guadeloupe; as they wait [or smoulder- ing wreckage o[ an Air France jet liner to cool so they can continue their grim search for bodies of victims killed Friday. (UPI) Am's request for a temporary restraining order to halt lh> strike, remove'pickets and submi issues lo "federal mediation, I took three hours lo actually ge the engineers back to work or Pan American flights throughou the nation. Kennedy urged the union to cal off the walkout in the name o "good judgment and even a mini mum concern for the public in terest." He said lo continue it would be "the height of irresponsibility o the part of the flight engineers.' The union said its walkout wa "perfectly legal and justified.' And it. said the strike-averliii]_ agreement reached by Wednesday flight engineers for Trans Work Airlines jeopardizes safety in th iir. Kennedy said the TWA agree ment proves engineers can get fair settlement without a strike But Brown' replied, "The Pa American and Eastern flight eng neers do not share the President' enthusiasm settlement' for Ihe propose arrived at by th •ithout really Lake substantial mar- and St. Joseph ounties. In 1960, in fact, Welsh r ould have lost (he election by good margin without Lake County's 61,850-vote plurality for at Friday's Democratic meeting: The Bepublicans voted on all their contests at once, a worthy .ime-sav.ng device with a fatal law—it makes it [wssible for a minor and uninteresting contest involving several candidates lo run on io extra ballots with the top nomination settled. When i;hat happens, as the GOP convention proved, the delegates won't st;sy hitched. By the fourth bailot on an Appellate Court contest, alter nominations for state treasurer and state superintendent of public instruction had been settled on one, Ihe convention lacked H quorum. Then; weren't enough delegates left in Ihe hall to nominate any- Many May Be Closer Republicans and some one. The convention adjouniixl while the had to be state committee held a hasty meeting to Democrats believe Lake County's j non) j n ., 1e ( | le leading candidate Democratic margin this year will - • closer to 20,000, or even less. And St. Joseph County, which jave Welch nearly a 20,000 vote edge Iwo years ago, could be close lo even come Nov.. 6. Partially . offsetting this . might >e a big vote for Bayh in his lome county, Vigo. This is normally Democratic territory, but s smaller and went for Welsh in 1960 by just 5,486 votes. Most other, large counties figure io be Republican, .and in the largest of all—Marion County (Indianapolis) — Republi can s 'are gleeful aboul; the Democratic wounds left by Mayor Boswell's campaign. Allen County, the Fort Wayne area, went Republican two years ago, while Vanderburgh County and Evansville, an area of fre- quent'political changes, was Democratic by a rather narrow margin. To offset these factors Bayh must depend largely upon his rapidly maturing skill as a campaigner and a personality which goes over big in his face-to-face meetings with the eleclorale— particularly the ladies. Needs Kennedy Help He also needs public approval of President Kennedy's administration, which has shown signs of declining recently, and of the Welsh administration. Bayh is handsome, energetic after flia others withdrew. The l>ost contest was Ihe one for 'slirle treasurer, but the al- tempt Isj Clarence T. Drayer of [ndianapolis lo-upset incumbent R, o b e r t E. Hughes was foredoomed* o defeat. He didn't have a strong statewide organization behind him, being backed chiefly by the Indianapolis forces led by llth District Chairman H. Dale Brown, i Incumbents are rarely ousted in conventions, anyway, but the Demoaais proved H state organization can do ""it by;. ' dumping Appellate Court Judge John S. Gonas Friday. Tv/n Boats Stolen Along Eel River Theft of two aluminum boats valued at $250 each was reported to police Saturday. The boats, one owned by the Sea S-wiul unit here, and the other by Dwihe Sorcnson, 609 Washington, M'cire stolen from the north bank of Eel river east of the Tenth iitreet dam. The :report made to police by Mike Hlraft, adult adviser for the scout;!, said the boats were brown and salver in color. Polite investigation showed a hack iiaw was apparently used lo erf the chains holding the said. "We do not position that strike Labor Department. "Collective bargaining is a two- way street and its failure is to be equally shared by (he Pan American and Eastern management," he accept the responsibility lies only with the union, nor do we think that the public interest is being served by following the course recommended by the .Labor Department. '.'That agreement concerns public safety and. that safety in the air would be severely jeopardized Labor Depart' . Brown con- by following' the ment's . program, tended. "Let 'Ihe government lower the air safety standards if it wishes, we will not." Brown said the union heeded the court order on Pan American, and .is ready to. attend any meeting called by Ihe mediation board in an effort to end the Eastern strike. Brown said Eastern and Pan Am flight engineers "have, .negotiated with an without government help, for .over two years'.without making any progress." The dispute is over a formula' for. reduction, of jet cockpit crews from four to three men. But Brown said, "In ,the interests of its members'and the public safety, it .will not abdicate its right to strike." .The TWA ..settlement, was reached after days and eights' of almost continuous talks after Secretary of Labor. Arthur. J. Goldberg proposed a formula for reduction, of jet crews from four to three men. The union said.earlier Saturday- one reason. it rejected the TWA formula ' as a basis for settling the Eastern and Pan Am disputes was because it removes a. 20- yeaivold 'requirement tha.t -flight engineers, <hav«, aircraft mechanic licenses: and articulate and has an effi-'boats.
