Six Logansporf. Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Taxpayers Pay Bill For Mental Illness "If I am a patient in the state hospital, the taxpayers not only have to take care of'me but also my family," said Richard Loring, chief psychiatric social worker at the Tippecanoe county 'Mental Health Clinic, in a talk at the local school administration building Wednesday night. Speaking at the meeting of the board of directors of the Cass Big Meeting In Mexico MEXICO CITY (UPI) - The shadow of Cuba's Fidel Castro will be hanging over the meeting between the Presidents of the United States and Mexico here Friday. Observers of all persuasions agree that Cuba will be one ol the topics of the 48-hour talks between Presidents John F. Kennedy and Adolfo Lopez Mateos. The Castro revolution's shift to the Soviet bloc has caused more misunderstanding between Mexico and the U.S. than the two governments have had in the past 100 years. But there is divergence of opinion about the importance of Cuba as a topic. Some rank it as No. 1, the hi dispensable question which musl be settled in order to permit agreement on other matters within a framework of exceptionally good tions U.S.-Mexico official at this time. rela- However, since the program- makers have repeatedly stressed that there will be no agenda in the two or three private talks be . tween the Chief Executives, it is felt by some that Lopez Mateos will give preference to a range of other matters including government participation in industry, imports and exports, foreign investments, common defense, tourism, business climate, land tenure, Alliance for Progress, etc. Not an improbable topic, either, in view of recent Washington discussions of a new inter - oceanic canal route, is the.often-mentioned Tehuantepec Isthmus project to link the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific along a relatively easily- protected route. This country has made a detailed study in recent years of such a canal, and a recent liberal attitude abroad on development loans has led to conjecture that the U.S. might help Mexico finance such a waterway, if this country so desires. The initiative on the Cuban question is expected to be taken by Kennedy in the talks, with an effort to 'move the- Mexican "hands- off position on Cuba closer to the U.S. point of view, shared by a majority of American republics. Mexico took a long stride along the Washington approach to Castro at Punta Del Este when Foreign Minister Manuel Tello expressed "incompatibility" of the doctrine with the inter-American system. Since then, without any formal change in relations, observers have noted a "cooling" of feeling between Havana and Mexico City. Stalwart Castroites have assailed County Association for Menta! Health, Loring said that 71 o the people who have been treatec at the Tippecanoe Clinic since il was opened definitely would have required hospital care if they hac not gone to the Clinic. Of that number, 64 were saved from hospitalization and only seven had to go to the hospital anyway. Loring said the average cost of treating and curing a mental patient is less than $10,000 compared with $190,000 for that person's lifetime care if he is not given proper treatment. Pointing out the value of a mental health clinic, he said it is still true that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Scoring the state's failure to provide separate treatment facilities for its mentally ill children, Loring declared, "When, you're dealing with a child schizophrenic you are dealing with an entirely different type of mental illness from that of an adult schizophrenic." Although people today have a more enlightened view toward mental illness, many still have to go to jail while awaiting admission to a state hospital, the'social worker, .who is also a DePauw sociology instructor, pointed out. He said the one thing all of the mental patients most vividly remember is the fact that a sheriff took them to the state hospital. "They ask what they did lo justify being treated as a criminal," Loring said. ( Mrs. Robert While reported on the progress of the membership drive; Mrs. Lawrence Jones reported that the volunteers have taken female patients on two shopping trips; and Mrs. Robert Batch reported on her Adopt-A- Patient survey to show the activity of those who have "adopted" forgotten patients at Long- cliff. Don Grain, president, announced that all proceeds of the premier performance of the movie, "Advise and Consent," at Keith's theatre in Indianapolis on July 19 will go to the Indiana Association 'or Mental Health. The cost of [he tickets is tax deductible. Information on them may be ob- ;ained by phoning Mrs. William Hile, executive director, at the ocal Mental Health office. The Association's budget for next year was adopted at the meeting. the Lopez Mateos government for | the "incompatibility" .stand, and for a clamp-down on entry and- distribution of Castro publications.' Nevertheless, Mexico clings firmly to the doctrine of "nonintervention" and "self-dct-ermi- nation," economic as well as political in the face, of all the subtle arguments called up to present these as outmoded by a Communist threat to the hemisphere.

Two convicts cracked under the strain Wednesday night and rather than try and "save face" de- sceneded the superstructure amid the jeers of the holdouts. WWe guards have taken no direct action to force the other prisoners to leave the tower, one move was certain to cut short demonstration. Prison officials discovered the convicts were using a tap on the side of the tank to obtain water. The .tank was immediately drained.

Wheat Vote On Marketing Set July 24 WASHINGTON.(UPI) - Under!! present plans,, wheat growers will vote in a referendum July 24 on whether to accept marketing quotas on the 1963 • wheat crop to be grown on a national acreage allotment of 55. million acres.., If two-thirds of those voting favor marketing quotas, the commercial wheat. producers who comply with their acreage allot-i ments. will be eligible to collect price supports at a national aver- L' 1 age rale of $1.82 per .'bushel/ on I all the bread grain they produce This is 75, per. cent of the parity | f price of wheat. Alii this was announced Hues- „„_ day by Secretary of Agriculture 'Orville L.. Freeman "with the ["> greatest reluctance and only because there is ho alternative under -existing legislation." Freeman pointed out that the announcement could be vacated in the event Congress enacted new legislation to apply to the 1963 wheat crop. Freeman said the recent death of the administration farm bill in the House "returned the wheat farmer to 'the pr^-1961 laws now the books—-in effect, to those programs which have caused the present surpluses." Under the temporary 1962 wheat stabilization program, wheat acreage was around 45 million acres and price support was $2 per wishcl, or 84.4 per cent of parity. Freeman said that under the 1962 n wheat farmer net income was 10 per cent higher than in 1961. He indicated that the producer would have done even .bet- .er under Hie bill that was killed, rle -also said that a return to pre- 1961 farm law would increase surpluses, lower farm net income, and add lo taxpayers' costs. Food For Americans The Agriculture Department today estimated the wheat carryover on July 1, 1963, will drop about 150 million bushels to a total of 1,195,000,000 bushels. The anticipated reduction in surplus, slocks would be the second in. two years. The estimate was made in the department's periodical and long- scheduled review of the wheat situation. It was not issued in connection with announcement of the 196,'i wheat program. The department estimated the .otal supply of wheat for the 1962- i3 marketing year at 2,410,000,000 bushels. This is 9 per cent below ast year and 10 per cent below the record set in 1980-61. The decline in suppy is due to a reduction in both carryover and production, the department said.' The 1982 wheat crop, grown under the production-reducing wheat stabilization program, may be one of the smallest in - recent years. Crop conditions on June 1 ndicated the total wheat output 'or this year would be 1,058,000,000 'bushels, 14 per cent below last year's crop. The July 1, 19G2, carryover has seen estimated at 1,345,000,000 oushels, down ft? million bushels From a year earlier. Read the Want Ads! CLASSIC Polish dinner includes baked imported canned.

Next Estes Move Due On July 23 PECOS, Tex. (UPI) - Dist. Judge J. H. Slarley has ordered the postponed felony theft trial of Billie Sol Estes moved 600 miles away to Tyler and the next move will be up to the defense on July 23. That is the dale Judge Starley will.hear any motions by either e on why. the change of .venue should not'be'made definite. John Gofer, Estes' No. 1 defense attorney may oppose the move. Starley approved a defense motion for a continuance Wednesday, then recessed court to study •where to move the case; Dist.' Judge Otis T. Dunagan of Tyler said he would hear the eight cases involved in the Pecos action. Estes was on trial on charges le stole $102,144 from farmer Thomas Bell through a fraudulent fertilizer storage lank-mortgage deal. He is under ihdictmenl on seven more similar state charges totalling $827,577. Attorneys for both sides argued 35 minutes Wednesday on where lo move the case. Neither suggested Tyler, which was chosen upon suggestion of Judge Starley. Judge Starley said he eliminated all of west Texas and the Texas Panhandle as territory in which to move the trial. Most of the farm tycoon's operations were in., the west Texas-Panhandle area. He said he thought it would be better lo try the case in a large metropolitan area where polenlial jurors mighl not have subconscious feelings in the case. Estes is also under a federal indictment for fraud and conspiracy in connection with similar mortgage deals. No Irial date has been set for the federal charges.
