Miss Durham's application of two years ago was approved this year as. a ship staff member on the SS Hope and she will go aboard the Medical Ship January 8, 1971 at Baltimore for a 10 months tour of duty in the Kingston, Jamaica Port. The Project. Hope began in 1958 when President Dwight Eisenhower asked William B.Walsh M.D. a Washington D.C. heart specialist to consider the initiation of a non-government health program to help the people of developing nations. Dr. Walsh's subsequent plan called for refitting a Moth-Balled Navy hospital ship to use as a floating medical center. President Eisenhower arranged for the use of the U.S.S. Consolation, a veteran ship of WW II and the Korean War. By 1960 the medical and hospital fitted ship was ready to sail. • The 1960 Maiden Voyage was to Indonesia and Vietnam. In future years the Hope went to Peru, Ecuador, Guinea, Nicaragua, Colombia, Ceylon and Tunsia. The Hope goes only when invited and then to where the need is the greatest. '. Since the Hope's initial voyage, 1 st Annual Farm-City Tour Informative & Educational Gary s «hooi Local Girl Assigned to The First Annual Tipton County Farm-City Tour was "termed a success by the Committee. The following is a short resume of the places that have been visited on this first tour. Pioneer Beef Breeding Program: The program is a revolution in reshaping the beef cattle industry. It offers a new ap­ proach to developing improved breeding stock to the farmers and feeders. 'Also it is a great advantage to present an opportunity to them in purchasing top grade livestock at a reasonable cost. In short, the Pioneer planners saw. an opportunity to. service the beef cattle industry much as it has the producers John Walker Attends 52 nd Annual Council Meeting The 52nd Annual Meeting of the Indiana State Poultry Association, Inc., the Twenty-Sixth Hoosier Turkey Trot, and an Egg Producers Day in cooperr ation with National Egg Council, was held at the Hotel Atkinson, Indianapolis,- recently with a registration of approximately 200. John Walker of Tipton and director of the Egg Council Department was among those attending. Registration represented industry people from Canada, England and all surrounding states as well as Indiana. Considerable emphasis was placed on the importance of the poultry industry's responsibility to help maintain a good environment. Dr. Alvin Dale, Agricultural Engineering Department, Purdue University, Lafayette, pointed out that the Indiana Administrative Building Council interpreted the 1969 law as covering all farm structures, where a single employee or more, or a building of 30,000 cubic feet or more, was to be constructed. Basically, they are attempting to require the same standards to be met for farm structures as for public buildings. It was pointed out by Dr.-Dale that if these standards are to be followed then farm structure costs would increase from 50 to 150% in Indiana. It was pointed out that members of the Indiana State Legislature currently were drafting proposed legislation to ammend the Administrative Building Council law to define agricultural buildings and to give certain exemptions^ Mobile Home Fl ips- This 65 feet long by 12 feet wide and 12,000 pound mobile home unit, which was wind torn from it's hauling trailer Friday, November 20, was turned right side up Friday, November 27, placed on a new hauling unit and will be ready to be pulled to Elkhart next Monday. The trailer, built by the Abbott Inc. of Elkhart and Nappanee, was being hauled south on U.S. 31 Nov. 20 to Louisville for lease to a government agency for ah office, when tornadic winds tore the trailer from the hauling dolly and flipped it into the media between the four lane highway. Bolts, each four feet on both sides of the trailer, were torn out of the medal dolly like toothpicks according to the tractor driver, who was not injured. At the moment when the mobile unit flipped off the dolly the pushing effect sent the tractor into the west berm, before the driver could get his vehicle under control. . Four wreckers were used Friday, Nov. 27, to right the damaged mobile unit and load it on the. new dolly. State Highway laws prohibit hauling trailers on roads over weekends and holidays. This was the first damage or accident to a moving mobile unit of the Abbott Company in 3,000,000 miles of over the road hauling, a spokesman said. Not a window was broken in the mobile unit when it flipped over and off of the moving dolly and the greatest damage was done by intruders walking on the roof when the unit was upside down. This will necessitate complete new roof to be installed. The unit will be taken to the company factory for renovation. The same Nov. 20 another mobile unit from another company was blown off it's hauling unit and into the ditch on UjS. 31 near Carmel. (Staff Photo by Eldon Cage) of corn, sprgum, eggs and broilers. . The philosophy of selecting on the basis of performance, not looks, could improve beef cattle. . Taking the selection of breeding stock out of the "eyeball stage" and moving in to the computer age. With this in mind Pioneer made its first large scale purchases of beef breeding stock in 1966. They used the following four breeds: Angus, Charolais, Hereford and Red Angus. In" 1970 they pooled their resources with the cattlemen in the Iowa area to-provide superior breeding stock. By 1970 an output of superior performance tested Pioneer Bulls reached nearly. 1,000. Rapid expansion is planned for the Tipton- Indiana Plant. The total Pioneer philosophy started back in 1926. The present emphasis in beef cattle is on'improv- ing the most popular pure breeds rather than developing hybrids. The same principles that made Pioneer Brand Seeds and Poultry leaders, are being applied to the beef testing performance program. The people on the tour found out that they are now able to buy bulls at a reasonable price. They were shown how to buy the best for the money because of the very careful breeding program and has the background of having an outstanding company behind it that has been agriculturally minded in all the years of existence. Finally the visitors discovered that the total beef breeding program is a long- range program. It depends upon repeated purchases by satisfied customers. "The people visiting on the tour were not only impressed by Pioneer's operation but also by the other four farms," stated the co-ordinator, Irle Bridge..

A simplified drying operation was shown which has proved to be very practical and profitable in getting this grain to the proper place.

The Hope's shore programs continue in countries previously visited by the ship as well as self-help domesticated programs in Laredo, Texas and Ganado, Arizona. Project Hope is the principal activity of the People-to-People- Health Foundation Inc., an independent, non-profit • corporation supported by American individuals and industry. Hope is not a typical American Hospital; she is a floating Medical Center; a town complete within herself. She has her own medical library, theater, church, classrooms, dining room, recreational facilities, equipment repair shop, radio station, soda fountain, bakery, butcher shop and barber shop. She carries her own vehicles, has her own pharmacy, clinical laboratory, blood bank and storage space for 7,000 tons of supplies used on each of her 10 months voyages. But foremost, the Hope carries the dedicated men and women of human hope. The Hope is a converted WW n American steamship and has six decks: the boat deck, upper deck, main deck, second deck, first deck and the holds, where there are doctors dorms,'.staff quarters, dining, rooms, doctors lounges, nurses lounges, women's medical wards, lecture rooms, pharmacy, therapy clinics, labs, milk reconstitution plants, chemical vaults, medical supply stores, and autopsy rooms. Miss Durham said she was grateful for the opportunity to serve on the Hope and when she returned from the tour she would give the people her home of Tipton .County a report on the once in a lifetime duty. By MARTIN McREYNOLDS KEY WEST, Fla. (UPI) Eric Bley had his brother and three unexpected East German refugees safely ashore, and felt expansive about their djring defection from the deck of the Communist ship "Volker Jetliner (Crashes During Takeoff ANCHORAGE, Alaska (UPI) . — A chartered jetliner with 229 aboard crashed while attempting a takeoff j in freezing rain Friday night and exploded in a ball of fire killing scores of military personnel bound. for Vietnam. j A spokesman for the Alaska State Police said early today at least 51 bodies had been recovered from the wreckage. There were 171 known survivors and seven others unaccounted for. The plane, which had just taken on fuel for a flight to Cam Ranh Bay, failed to clear the runway, crashed over an embankment jand broke into three pieces as it exploded in flames. . « Witnesses said they noticed a small series | of fires as the Capitol International Airport DC8 plane moved down the runway carrying 219 military personnel and J 10 crewmen. The witnesses said the pilot was trying toiabort the takeoff, they said!he was unable to Freundschaft." "If they opened the Berlin Wall one week, there would be nobody left in East Germany," said Bley, a 36-year-old engineer from 1 Villa Park, 111. "The country would be drained of people." , Bley reduced the East German population by four Friday with the help of a fishing boat captain, two pilots and a lot of luck. He and his brother, Karl-Heinz Bley, 24, of Bitterfeld, East Germany, had been planning the escape for several months in a series of coded letters. The younger Bley, who was nine when bis brother and sister-in-law defected to the West through Berlin in 1955, had made an earlier trip to Havana and looked longingly at "the lights of Miami" as the ship slipped past the Florida coastline. He later went to Bulgaria in hopes of slipping into Turkey, but the opportunity did not present itself. Escape is Set Up Eric Bley, owner of Bley Engineering of Lagrange, 111., set up his brother's escape by hiring two small airplanes and Capt. Bob Lowe to run the fishing boat. One of the boats was to buzz the Volker Freundscbaff as a signal for Bley to jump, while his brother and Lowe waited to pluck him from the water. But what none of them knew was that two pathologists and a microbiologist aboard the Com- /munist vessel were also plan- I ning to jump if. they got a chance. Reinhpld Kupfer, 33, his brother Manfred, 37, and Pieter Rost, 37, spent all of Thanksgiving night on deck, looking for an escape opportunity, unaware of the Bley brothers' plan. Cause of Death Phil.
