Overseas Deadline Public Discussion " Tax Reform Needed " says Farm Bureau Spokesman K IWCflIS Meeting irle Bridge, president of Kiwanis Club; Harry Foreman, Tipton - Howard County Representative; Hollis Moon, Farm Bureau Director of Legislature Actions and Ray Noble, vice president of Kiwanis Club discuss tax changes needed following a meeting Monday night at the Bowl-O-Drome. ( Staff Photo By Pat Cline) Tax Reform Legislation to be proposed in 1971 was discussed Monday night by guest speaker Hollis Moon, lobbiest for Farm Bureau at Kiwanis Club meeting. The meeting which was open to the public was attended by only 18 persons at the Bowl-O-Drome. Mr. Moon was introduced by Ray Noble, vice president of the civic organization. "First priority facing the upcoming general session of legislature is the money problem facing the state," remarked Mr. Moon, "who has acted on behalf of Farm Bureau as lobbiest for the past seven sessions." "The question that needs answered is, 'how do we find adequate funds to meet the needs of the people.' As we examine our State Constitution we realize that we do not have home rule author­ ity which is granted to many other states. This means that everything involving local rule is. first granted by enactment by legislature," he stated. "If. sufficient revenue is not raised by legislature or sent back to local governments then the only option for local officials has for filling the need is through property tax which fills the gaps for services deligated to perform. We have experienced a heavier involvement of Federal Government in use of funds available to local communities. This is being done through bypassing the State buy has many 'strings attached' earmarking stipulations for use of Federal Funds," Moon explained. Jerry Smith Named Top Livestock Judge LAFAYETTE, Ind.

Captain Caylor Border Crossed In New Attack By KIM WILLENSON SAIGON (UPI)-About 7,000 South Vietnamese troops backed by tanks and helicopters crossed the border into Cambodia Monday in a two-pronged attack on Communist sanctuaries. They encountered little resistance and today turned up . a 254-ton arms cache. The South Vietnamese forces, pushing west and south from Pleiku in two operations, found the 254 tons of 85mm ammunition six miles inside Cambodia. It was the largest cache of artillery shells ever found in the Indochina War, military spokesmen said. Shortly after the cache was uncovered, there was a brief fight with Communist forces in the area, killing 11 while suffering no South Vietnamese casualties. The only other fight reported was a skirmish in the Se San River. Valley in which five. Communists were killed with no government casualties. . Communists launched their biggest attack this year on the sprawling Bien Hoa air base 14 miles northeast of Saigon. at dawn today, firing more than 10 Chinese-made 107mm rockets into the complex. Spokesmen said three Americans and a Vietnamese were killed and 25 other persons were wounded. Another Communist mortar attack also was reported on the northern headquarters of tte (Continued on page six) contributed immeasurable assistance in the successful recov- Capt.5 Larry Caylor ery of a downed aircrew member from an extremely hostile environment. •.

J udge Blames Drug Abuse For 80 Percent of Crimes New Installation- Charles Sedam and Ray Croft, Block masonsjfinlshihg the 11 feet by 14 feet concrete block building which will house the Tipton Telephone Company's 75KW Auxiliary Electric Generator. The new building is located at the eastend of the Tipton Telephone Company, 117 East Washington" Street. The generator will be run on diesel fuel, wiU automatically turn on in the event of commercial electric failure and will operate for a minimum of one hour and an indefinite maximum until commercial electric service is restored. Too the auxiliary generator wiU start itself automatically once each week and run for one hour, so that the maintenance personnel will know it is operable. In the event it does not run itself on once each week, gauges will tell the personnel about the failure. Clifford Cook, maintenance manager, said this new auxiliary system and equipment is vital and necessary to the Tipton firm because the Tipton Exchange takes care of all telephone tolls and radio demands from Sharpsville, Goldsmith, Kempton, Windfall, Atlanta and Arcadia. Too, the unit will supply electric power to all of the Telephone building. The present building was constructed 14 years ago and the equipment moved into it in 1957. The old auxiliary system is a series of wet cell batteries and will supply electric power for only an hour or two.

By CAROL ANN ROSS WASHINGTON (UPI)-Three years ago when Judge Charles W. Halleck was appointed to the District of Columbia's Court of General Sessions, he was a gung-ho law and order man, right wing in his politics, and by his own testimony, a militant "square." He once told a couple of longhaired youths brought to court on marijuana charges: "If you come in here looking like a bunch of kooks and dressed up in crazy clothes and beads, you're going to befound guilty' before they call the case." In those days the judge wore his own hair conservatively trimmed in a crew-cut. But all that's changed now. His friends speak with awe of what they call "the radicalization of Charlie Halleck." The judge himself doesn't think it's so surprising that he should have altered his life-style and outlook. "It isn't just me that's changed, the whole system is changing —people are becoming aware of what's happening," he Said in an interview. Change is More Than Physical Halleck now appears in court wearing bell-bottom trousers and ankle-high black boots under his judicial robe. His graying hair has grown oyer his collar. His one clean-shaven face is now adorned by luxuriant sideburns, a mustache and a chin-beard. But the change goes beyond mere physical appearance. The judge once known for his aversion to hippies and for the long sentences he imposed on some defendants now prefers to hand down advice instead of jail terms. Indiana Outlook Indiana extended outlook for Thursday through Saturday: Mostly cloudy and mild with occasional periods of showers Thursday and Driday, ending : Saturday. Lows in the upper 30s. Highs upper 40s and 50s. He tells marijuana users who are haled before him that he doesn't care personally whether they want to "blow a little pot," but it's against the law and until Congress decides, to change the rules they will "have to get all the hash and marijuana out of their houses." Halleck is a former prosecutor. Navy officer, Subpoena server for the Senate Internal Security Committee and the son of-a former House Republican leader, Charles A. Halleck of Indiana. He was appointed to the bench in October, 1967, by President Lyndon B. Johnson.. The 42-year-old judge said his crime." transformation began about two years ago "when I saw all the people I was sending to jail were coming back." Social Problems Studied With that realization, he started to read books and studies of social problems. He also began to visit ' jails, reformatories and prisons "to see what we were doing with people." This convinced him that "long punitive sentences don't deter anything." Halleck is most concerned today about the number of drug-related crimes being committed.' he said that on any given day, 80 per cent of the criminal cases he handles involve drugs . one ' way or another. "The reason we have crime is all of the drugs. Do away with the drugs and it would get rid : of 80 per cent of the Despite his new approach, Halleck continues to have a reputation for strict sentencing in crimes of violence* He believes courts must deal firmly with "the sort of thing that makes the streets unsafe for people." "Indiana State Tax Structure is considered one of the best in the nation, as an excellent tax base. No state has found a way to raise sufficient revenue except by three major sources which are taking peoples accumulated wealth (property tax); taxing man's income and taxing man's spending (sales tax). Indiana uses all three of these revenue sources. The only thing wrong with the tax structure is that it is out of. balance. Right now people are mad about the periodic reassessment of property which has resulted in 50 to 60 percent increases in taxes. They are now bringing pressure upon the government for a proper balance. The-, 1970 property tax will put one billion dollars of revenue into 92 county court houses. What proportion, what fashion and Whose responsibility is it to balance this amount with other sources of revenue are questions being asked. Mr. Moon stated that Farm Bureau feels that the major problem lies in the financing the cost of education. We rely too heavily on property tax to support our , school systems. SLxty cents of every dollar is used for schools leaving 40 cents for the rest of expenditures from property tax revenue. 'Basic operating costs of schools in Indiana is costing nearly $900 million a year. With approximately one million children in Indiana attending school, it costs about §700 per child to educate him. We won't argue the cost but how do we pay for it. There is a need to find a way to shift the burden from services to the people. This can be done by placing a lid on property tax, and then finding another way to help finance the schools. Those communities who desire a higher quality of education beyond the" minimum standard can levy a special tax to cover the costs rather than expect property owners to foot most of the expense." Farm Bureau is not seeking a change in sales tax but are seeking an absolute limit for educational expenses paid out of property taxes," Moon concluded. Special guests at the meeting were Harry Foreman, Tipton- Howard County representative, and; Ned Kemper, president of Tipton County Farm Bureau. President Irle Bridge expressed his regret that the public did not attend the meeting ft> hear the problems of tax reform facing the upcoming general session. New Postal Rates New postal rates went into effect Saturday onfourth Class parcel post and catalog items. All customers using this class should check with the postoffices of their area to get the proper rate information. Tipton Postoffice officials aid the new rates were officials said the new rates were effective November 14. 0 ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.: R.W. Smith, the man on the right with the perplexed look, may not accept any wooden nickels, but he did take a wooden check weighing 80 pounds. Ross Manning, left, made out the check for work done by Smith's Auto Service. Smith said his main problem would be getting the check through a" bank teller's window. UPITELEPHOTO V
