SECOND CLASS POSTAGE AT TIPTON, INDIANA 46072 Damage Estimate High Barn Consumed by Flames By Eldon Cage Fire of an undetermined origin Monday 1:15 p.m. destroyed a 40 feet by 48 feet barn on the farm of Robert Calvin, five and one- half miles southwest of Tipton. Also lost inside the barn were 50 feeder pigs about 100 pounds each, three sows, two farm tractors, 500 bales of hay, a wagon, a spreader, a trailer and several hand tools. The total loss will be well over $10,000. Calvin, who works for a Tipton establishment, was not at home when the fire alarm was turned in by Mrs. Calvin. The Tipton County truck answered the call and found the blaze in the bales of hay in the north end when they arrived, had begun to eat into the rafters and wooden hog pens. Too, the fire had started burning the tires on the two big farm tractors. High pressure water hose were used on both the east and west sides of the barn to allay the burning hay, but the fire had gotten too great a start to save the north end of the barn and the contents in this area. Tipton firemen are to be commended for staying with the blaze and keeping another 30 hogs from being destroyed. Also the firemen in closeup water hose control were almost able to stave off the blaze long enough to get the tractors out, but blazing and exploding hay and tractor tires finally prevented this save. Rats and mice ran from the burning building into fields and across the road. One large rat with a body at least one foot long ran with hair smoldering from the building across the gravel road into a cornfield. In addition to the Tipton firemen and volunteer units, the John Bean Company Personnel and Madison Township units came to the site and assisted. So many persons besides regular firemen assisted that all are commended by the Tribune without printing names. A thought for today: George Bernard Shaw said, "There are no secrets better kept than the secrets that everyxody guesses." irn Burns- and Jack VanHorn burning and exploding Robert Calvin barn exploded and gas trotting from the Powell (bareheaded), in trying to keep Elks Lodge Plans Memorial Tipton Elks Lodge, BPOE number 112, is planning a memorial service for deceased members of the Lodge Sunday at West Street Christian Church at 5 p.m. .

Also turning and closeup site are David Mundell (left) and Rex Mundell and Powell had been assisting feeder pigs from running back into burning building. Despite efforts from many other persons besides Tipton Firemen attempting to save the hogs at least 50 feeder pigs and three sows were killed in the blaze. Also lost in the 40 feet by 48 feet barn were two farm tractors, 500 bales of hay, a wagon, a spreader, a trailer and several small farm implements. Loss to Calvin will run over $10,000. The barn and equipment were partially insured. J (Stiff Photo by.Eldon Cage) Sgt. Joe Harris Informs Farm-City Folks With Wit Tipton Appearance Arson Being Rubinoff s Treasured Violin ln I e ! t ? a !! t ! 1 NOW YOU KNOW By United Press International Cribbage, an improvement on the older car game of Noddy, was devised in Great Britain early in the 17th century by Sir John Suckling. Ninety Percent Completed When Rubinoff appears in Tipton in a program of popular concert music, he! will play on one of the most precious instruments in the world, the famed Romanoff - Stradivarius Violin insured for $100,000. Reputed to possess the most beautiful tonal qualities in the entire world. He will present a brand new program of famous favoritesj loved by people everywhere,, such as Warsaw Concerto, Chopin's Polorinaise, DeBussy's Clair De 1 Lune. These compositions will have their premier performance asviolinsolos arranged and played by the maestro. This tour is jhearded as a Concert "in tune with the times." Precious Minutes in the Life of an Artist When Rubinoff is on a concert tour around the world, his famous violin, built in 1731, goes with him. It is such a part of his life that it is actually physically impossible to separate him from it. Wherever he goes, no one—neither bell hop, nor personnel representative can carry it — no one but Rubinoff himself. The violin is famous for its silken, lustrous tone, its full range and almost unbelievable depth. Made in 1731, by the master of all violin makers, this particular "Strad" eventually found its way into the hands of the Romanoffs, one time rulers of Russia, and still bears the bejeweled crest of that family. During the revolution, it was smuggled out of Russia and eventually was purchased by Mr. Rubinoff. Sensitive to heat, humidity, al­ titude and the risks that beset, any treasure of such vast value, the Stradivarius is guarded with deference and extreme care at all times. The ancient instrument still retains the original varnish and is the acme of perfection in musical instruments. An interesting iaa Is tiiaiuur-* ing certain passages of "Warsaw Concerto" Rubinoff exerts as much as 60 pounds of pressure on the violin. It takes tremendous strength of highly developed muscular action to draw certain tones from one of the world's most delicate instruments. Rubinoff will appear at Tipton High School gymnasium on December 10 at 8:15 p.m. Tickets are available from Lions Club members. Harvesting Ahead of Schedule LAFAYETTE, Ind.

The White House said it appeared the affair was "poorly handled." Nixon directed a full investigation Monday amid new criticism of the incident in Congress, and an added note of explanation from the Coast Guard. The commander of the Coast Guard, Adm. Chester Bender, Issued a 350-word statement saying it was alleged that the man who tried to defect had stolen money from his ship. Bender added it was '"felt that it was reasonable and proper that we not permit our ship to be used as a means of defection and that the man should be returned." The incident took place one week ago Monday, in U.S. waters off Martha's Vineyard as the Coast Guard cutter Vigilant and a Soviet fishing ship met to discuss the extent of flounder fishing in the North Atlantic. By Vi Burr "I wouldn't want to be anything but a State Trooper", stated Joe Harris. Sgt Joe Harris, an Indiana State Trooper from Pendelton Post, made this statement to approximately 175 people at the 4th annual Farm-City banquet. The Farm-City banquet sponsored by the Farm Bureau, Inc., was Monday evening at the 4-H building. This banquet helps to promote goodwill between the farmers and city dwellers of Tipton Co. In this day of independence, their dependency upon each other is even greater than ever. Invocation was voiced by Ned Kemper and piano selections were played before and during the meal • by Dale Leininger, son of Mr. and Mrs. Luther Leininger, route 1.

The Blue Devils play two home games this weekend. Muncie Burris is here on Friday evening for the first conference game and then the Marion Giants come to town on Saturday. in. A State Trooper for 18 years, Joe Harris was well qualified to give his opinions on 'the life of a State Trooper.' He held the audience in the palm of his hand as he went from one experience to another. Some unbelieveably funny, others indescribably sad. In attendence at the Farm-City night were local educators, gov­ ernment officials, business leaders and clubs (Rotary, Lions and Kiwanis) as well as city residents and farm owners and operators. The evening was a success, and after listening to Sgt. Joe Harris, many left with the comforting thought that their farms, their city homes, their lives and the lives of their children are in good hands.

York was the Master of Ceremonies and introduced all of the Kiwanians, Rotafians. Lions, Farm Bureau officials, Pork Festival officials and Guy Kirby. Kirby, a 1970 Tipton High School graduate and now a Purdue University Freshman majoring in Animal Husbandry, gave an exceptional talk on the dependency of City to Farm and Farm to City in today's society. Sgt Harris, a Delaware County native, after serving in the military decided a State Trooper career, kept the 200 persons on the edge of their seats for about 40-minutes before he con-, eluded his interesting talk. Sgt. Harris would not take a fee for .his Monday night talk, but asked that the money be used for drug abuse projects.

The base at Chu Lai, in the coastal region below Da Nang in the northern sector of South Vietnam has two full service hospitals and several dispensaries. The sources said there were no patients in dispensary when the six-foot-long 122mm rockets hit. In Cambodia, terrorists set off a 70-pound bomb that wrecked part of the U.S. Embassy in Phnom Penh today but no one was injured. The Viet Cong announced In Vietnam they would observe Christmas, New Year and Tet cease-fires. The U.S. Command said B52 bombers flew their first strikes in two months in the southern part of South Vietnam today, hitting Viet Cong bunkers, base camps and staging areas 160 to 163 miles southwest of Saigon. The command also reported one American was killed by sniper fire Monday in Binh Dinh Province on the Central Coast of South Vietnam. American military spokesmen announced the withdrawal of the last unit of the 4th Infantry Division from Vietnam and the last two U.S. Navy coastal patrol boats in Vietnamese waters. The 4th Division became the fourth full U.S. Division to leave Vietnam since U.S. withdrawals began in July, 1969. The bomb that exploded in the American Embassyin the Cambodian capital went off in a section of the building being remodeled. It blew out an entire section of' the embassy i front wall, destroyed a new' telephone switchboard, sheared off a main supporting beam and shattered windows throughout the building. A Marine guard, an American clerk and a Cambodian teletype operator were the.only people in the building at the time, 3:30 ajn., and all escaped injury. In Vietnam, the Viet Cong's Liberation Radio said its forces would halt offensive action for three days at both Christmas and New Year and four days at Tet, the lunar new year which this year falls on Jan. 26. In the past the South Vietnamese government also has declared truces on the same holidays, Saigon had no immediate comment. Nor did the U.S. Command comment on the Viet Cong broadcast. The Communist announcements on such -cease-fires always are made by the Viet Cong since North Vietnam has yet to acknowledge it has any troops in South Vietnam. The U.S. Command in Saigon said Viet Cong artillerymen fired 122mm rockets into the Americal Division headquarters at Chu Lai, 335 miles nortk- northeast of Saigon Monday (Continued on page six)
