SUNDAY, JANUARY 26, 195S THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LfJGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA PAGE FITO Control Of Weather Not Coming Soon BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (^—Control of the weather is still a long way off, from either the scientific or political aspects, an Indiana University geographer said Satur-j day. | George H. T. Kimble, head of] the I.U. geography department,! cited backfiring of several weath-1 cr control experiments as indica- j lions of the progress still needed j to achieve total weather control, i He mentioned rainmaking which • produced rain where none was wanted and "baseball" hail that fell in attempts to prevent hail. "If those are measures of our present weather control, the global control envisaged by the scientists would appear to be still a long way off," Kimble said. If we do achieve the know-how to control weather, Kimble said there would be touchy political questions about the centers ot operations. He said the main "weather factories" lie in the polar regions and the equatorial latitudes, and added: "If this country should find itself in a position to control the Antarctic factory, it could scarcely hope to control the Arctic one. half of which is in the Russian | sphere. ' "And presumably it could only control the equatorial factory if it were able to set up strategic bases in a large number ot foreign territories. Indonesians, Melanesians and others might want to do their own manipulating of the This Changing World Cass County Historical Society By WILL BALL THEN WE COMMENCED to wonder how Mattes happened to become acquainted with the Laynes.

Ind. W-Birch Z. Bayh Jr., Democratic floor eador in the Indiana House last A'inter, has turned from lawtnak- ng to law studies. The 30-year-old West T c r r e •Taule farmer enrolled in t.'ie Indiana University law school, ex- jecting to earn a law degree in 960. Although Bayh's political career zoomed from that of a freshman representative in the 1955 Legis- alure to minority leader in 1957, ic said he had one nagging .hought: "I have high respect for those n the Senate and House who can quote law with authority." Besides, he said, "I like to be around people and hogs and cows aren't very good conversationalists." Bayh doesn't content himself with second-best for long. After finished second to a pretty Enid, Okla.. girl in a national Farm Bureau speaking contest in 1951, he married the winner. His wife, Marvella, helped him campaign for the Legislature in Vigo County in 1954. Bayh led his ticket. Their son, Evan III, 2, is learning his politicking lessons early. He greets strangers by shaking hands and saying, 'Hi, Democrat."

Unable to raise bail, the two men were returned to Vermilion County jail. A grand jury accused Gump and Diefenbaugh of robbing an 1'GA grocery, Saturday night, Jan. 18, then using hostages as shields to make their getaway when police surrounded the place. Diefenbaugh was charged with kidnaping clerk Tom Wynn, 19, at gunpoint. Wynn was released a few minutes afterwards.

First we went to an early plat of Boone township, in which Roval Center is located. We failed lo find that name, but did find that of George Jerolaman, showing that he owned more than two sections, or more than two square miles, of nice prairie land two or three miles northwest of the town. THEN WE TURNED to Helm's History of Cass County. L'nder Boone township he lists biographies of some pioneers, including the family for which we were looking, although he spelled it Layne. John Layne was a Virginian who came to Indiana at age 17, clerked in a store at LaPorte three years, v/ent back to Virginia, returned to LaPorte in 1857, bought a stock Gump was captured four hours j of goods and engaged in mercan- after the holdup at Crawfordsville,! tile business until 1860.

He and his wife settled on the Boone township farms in 1872, nine years before Dr. Jerolaman's death. They later moved to Joplin, Missouri. They were parents of -four children, only two of whom lived to maturity: a son, George, and a daughter, Grace. OUR FRIEND TOLD of their rather lavish manner of living. For one thing, they had a bowling alley on their town; not a bowling green: that is, a portion of the lawn levelled off so that a bowling ball would roll fairly straight toward the "jack," or goaT post; such a game as was,—and still is, to some extent,—played in Europe, (Erroneously identified in this Dr Jerolaman for this reason: we had previously learned that Julius of Indiana." He appealed to the writer for assistance regarding Logansport artisis, particularly the man who painted that reredos in St. James. He had the name, Mattes, only, with no information regarding the man. tion in about three months. The stimulant is kin lo a chemical called choline found in fishy foods and fish egg preparations like caviar. It was reported by Dr. Carl C. Pfeiffer, 40, a conference of the Brain Research Foundation. One of the best—and the largest— tnat time we knew no t n j n g about ics, the stimulant may also help is a winter scene in Russia, depicting the traditional drive through a forest with wolves in pursuit. Ferd Burgman has a portrait of his father; also another subject. Waller Ludders tells the writer that Joseph at one time used the the painter or his family. WE DON'T KNOW whether Mr. Peat is still interested in Mr. Mattes, but shall see that he gets a copy of this story.

He painted landscapes or floral designs on dozens of these. Waller says that for awhile a family that didn't have a Mattes cake pan plaque didn't have very high social standing. DOES ANY READER know of quent children, he said. Dr. Pfeiffer believes the stimulant, called dimethylaminoethanol or DMAE, exists naturally in normal brains. But some mentally ill persons may lack enough of this DMAE. He told ot one patient who had girls, but it has been interesting' heen .„ a catatoni £ state for about trying to find out.

Dr. Pfeiffer said DMAE will be made by Rikcr Laboratories, Los Angeles, under the trade name of Deaner.

In our opinion the best local example of his work is the reredos, or altar piece, which he painted for St. James Lutheran Church. It represents the Ascension of Christ after His resurrection. That was painted sometime between 1885 and 1897, when he moved to New York. Presumably he found too little remuneration in painting cake pan plaques. DURING THE CHICAGO fair in 1893 he sent an exhibit to that exposition. He and the only daughter, Rose, went to the fair; while there she met, and married, a man named Meyer.

And here are centered all the mighty elements, of the Toledo, Ohio Blade, we find: mind." "The backbone is undoubtedly the most wonderful human highway, in all this world! It holds up the man, culminating its most important office by helping him to keep his head on straight." "Break this great bony structure and it often is fatal. Even a bad injury is most serious. But what a noble piece of architecture it is in health. It is tragic that some men abuse it as they do, and women as well. Keep it upstanding and half the battle of life is won in advance. 'Study the structure of this remarkable example of engineering on the part of the Creator. Note how each section of its entire length has an office to | perform. Nerves, fiborous tissue, and bony structure, as well as its canal of precious fluid have an effect upon the entire body that is little realized. But just let any part of its make-up get out of order and it is noticed plenty. What a gift you have in that backbone of yours. Keep it well or Business Manager.
