103 Vr.arm of Jerrlc* to Ih* Cooimunlf)' THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE'S PROGRAM FOR LOGANSPORT: 1. An operative Planning Commission. 2. An Adequate Civic Center. 3. More efficient operation of the Municipal Utilities for the benefit of users, 4. Proper maintenance of streets and sidewalks. 5- Civil city tax. 6. An adequate Sewerage and Garbage Disposal System, 7. Sufficient Parking Facilities. Let's Be Good Losers Logansport's Berries are going to the semi-final basketball tournament Saturday as spectators, their opportunity for the fame and glory of a state championship having been ended Saturday night when they lost to Peru by a heart-breaking one-point margin. But Logansport is just as proud of its high school basketball team as if it had won the regional title. The Berries proved themselves champions,in spirit if not in name Saturday night when they refused to give up after a first half in which it seemed everything was going against them. With the Peru team displaying an uncanny accuracy in its shots and the officiating seemingly giving their opponents the benefit of every doubt, the Loganberries proved their championship calibre by the never-say-die spirit with which they battled against great odds during the second half to come within an ace of turning defeat into victory. Undaunted by circumstances which might easily have demoralized a more experienced team, the Berries steadily overcame their ten-point handicap and even forged ahead, oniy to see victory slip from their grasp through a series of bad breaks in the final minute of play. Fans who are too prone to blame the officiating whenever their team loses should remember that when their team wins their opponents often feel that they, too, have been the victims of poor'officiating. It is just possible that the losers of the afternoon regional games had as much cause for complaint as did the Logansport fans at night. Referees are human and consequently can be expected to make mistakes at times. In all fairness we should remember that Peru had a more experienced team than Logansport, with three of this year's players having been in the starting lineup last year. Instead of making excuses for our defeat, let us giva the Peru team full credit for.their hard-won victory and assure them that the Logansport-fans will be rooting for them to win the semi-final and then the state title. Working Toward A Better Community This week marks the start of another year for Logansport's Chamber of Commerce, an enthusiastic working organization interested solely in the progress and betterment of Logansport and 'the' entire -Logansport community, which includes our large trading area. Retiring as president is Edwin H. Becker, who deserves much credit for a year of accomplishment. To Harry A. Sisenbise, the indefatigable executive-secretary, 'should also go the commendation of the entire chamber '-for performing a difficult job in an excellent manner. The •.mew president, Tom Medland, and his officers and board "of directors, have the support of all persons who are truly interested in this community. '->'•'.•• Our Chamber of Commerce in Logansport is a se-rv- '. :-ant of the community. It performs an important function "in promoting the interestes of this community.and its people. Its overall purpose is not only to make this community a better trading center but also to make th;s community a better place in which to work and live. It strives to promote better relations, and the community of interests between all groups, management, labor, urban and farm residents. . Our entire community should be willing to support the Chamber in its worthwhile projects, for much remains to be done in the constant improvement of our area. Through a united effort, the job can be accomplished.
