Perhaps a day early, since we won't publish on Friday, but we hope to have the Tribune's Christmas Edition reach all of you before Christmas, hence we are sending along the special edition today. MAY WE RECOMMEND that you read the Christmas stories to the children; we secure them especially for this purpose, instead of just 'planting* any type of reading around the GREETING ADS from Tipton and county merchants on this occasion. THE LIGHT OF CHRISTMAS CHRISTMASTIME has a meaning to all of us. It perhaps brings all men closer to their neighbor than any other day of the year. It is the fulfillment and a fact for all to meditate on. At this time homes, streets and shops are bedecked with lights, and people seem to have an awareness of what they must feel for their fellowman, more than at any time of the year. This is good, too bad the 'spirit' (of such a day) cannot prevail throughout the year. IN THE SEASON the people unite no matter how wide the social breech may be. WE BELIEVE TOO, a wise proverb expresses Christmastime quite well. It reads: "The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord." WHEN THE MASTER came into the world it was a rude crude, nasty world, filled with ill - will, hatred, malice, envy, jealousy, bigotry, tradition and yes, even then, ILL GOTTEN taxes! As we go over the iUs of this old world, if we pause long enough we find that it has not changed too much since then; there is still envy, jealousy, etc; and above all narrow mindedness! WHEN YOU STOP to give some thought to it, our problem is not so much the super bomb, etc; it is MAN himself, as certain men set themselves above others, and try to bend them to their wills. MAYBE, just maybe, if we can get him set in the right direction, many of our problems will be o.ver. PROMISE OF PEACE WE STILL HAVE the promise of PEACE. That promise of peace and good wilt came to the world in Bethlehem many, many years ago....and we must all believe that one day it will be fulfilled. There were HERODS when CHRIST was born, there have been HERODS since then, many of them, but they have always, in the long pull - disappeared. In fact, they were probably sent as a TRIAL for man...and man, realizing their destructive potential, dealt with them. IN SPITE OF THE HEROD of old, inspite of the HERODS of TODAY, the message still is being spread. There maybe those who hate everything Christmas stands for. Peace and goodwill n °t promote their lust for power. Herod and the Romans are long since dust, so are the more modern ones, like Hitler, etc. Christ and Christmas are very much alive. IT IS SURE they will continue to inspire the world long after the modern Herods fall victim to the hatred and conspiracy they brought forth. THE KIDDIES CHRISTMAS MEANS a lot to the kiddies, just as it meant to us when we were young. To them it is still the annual visit of SANTA CLAUS, a long day of surprises, a day of feasting with the family, a day of tinsel, a day to remember. CHRISTMAS IS one grand and glorious day for the children, beginning with days of expectation, the enchantment of Santa Claus, a visit to the store or headquarters of Santa, letters written to Santa, who somehow seems to receive them; parents are often on real intimate terms with Saint Nick! CAN YOU REMEMBER one of the big thrills of your childhood, when you would sheak down the stairs early Christmas morning, then the din following the finding of those toys you wanted so much? Then too - the real proud way you,went outdoors to compare your gifts with others. No thought given that within a short time Christmas would fade....and broken toys would-remind one of the glorious dayl TO THE CHILD, Christmas means presents. He gets much of what he wants with small thought of giving, although there may be a hasty prayer to Santa to remember the rest of the family. He must grow a little older to realize that Christmas is an opportunity to make otters happy by giving them a token of love, however small, just to realize the pleasure of giving! THEN HE TOQ wants to be Santa Clause...come Christmas time! . We may be RICH, they may be POOR, or THEY may be rich, WE tazf be poor; but there is a common ground of fellowship that takes possession at Christmas, changing men from selfish individuals, concerned only with their own interests, into unselfish Christmas brotherhood, eager to share. SO - MERRY CHRISTMAS to all of you, from all of us and let's make this Christmas . . . . a real CHRETMASl ISSUES CHALLENGE NEW YORK (UPI) - Sir Frank Packer of Australia, who has failed twice to win the America's Cup, has Issued a challenge to the United States for a third try at yachting's most treasured prize in 1973.

THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE Servicemen, Veterans Trained Overseas QUIRKS IN THE NEWS PEOPLE DON'T REALIZE DETROIT (UPI)-A good many of the Christmas cards sent by Dr. Thomas Clinton of OcNichols Animal Hospital come back marked: "addressee unknown." "People just don't realize that it's'a card for their dog," Clinton's secretary, Judy Prisby, said. Miss Prisby said about 3,000 cards were sent this year to dogs, cats, birds and turtles — "every animal that's been treated here in the last three years." All bear the same message "Best wishes for Christmas and every day of the new year." WILL KEEP HAMMER LONDON (UPI)—A London auctioneer is selling his own rostrum today.

Inmates Released Governor Edgar D. Whitcomb has approved early holiday releases for approximately 200 inmates from the penal and correctional institutions, it was announced today. Those persons released on December 23, 1970, would ordinarily be released between December 23, 1970, and January 5, 1971. Only those with good behavior records and those who have been granted parole will be eligible. This same procedure was followed last year by the Department of Correction with Governor Whitcomb's approval; The Veterans Administration today reported more than 11,000 persons trained under the GIBill outside the borders of the 50 states during fiscal year 1970. Of these, 10,410 were veterans and 621 were servicemen. The figures for fiscal year 1969 were 8,264 and 203, respectively. The 7,653 trainees who studied in Puerto Rico last fiscal year comprised the largest single group to study beyond the state borders of the UJ3.A. VA noted 3,144 trainees studied in foreign countries — almost half (1,522) were enrolled in the Philippine Republic, 399 studied in Canada, 203 in Mexico, 175 in the British Isles, 168 in Germany, and 677 in all other foreign countries. Veterans earn GI Bill educational benefits if they are discharged under other than dishonorable conditions after at least 181 days of continuous active military duty, any part of it after January 31, 1955. They also are eligible if discharged because of a service- connected disability. The Administrator of Veterans Affairs, Donald E. Johnson, under law may deny or discontinue educational assistance for a veteran to attend a foreign school if he feels it is hot in the best interest of the veteran or the United States gov- • crnment. Except for this restriction, VA stressed that an eligible person may attend any foreign institution of higher learning that accepts him. The law does not allow study below college level in foreign countries. EXCEPTION TO RULE HEMEL HEMPSTEAD, England (UPI)-Firemen stopped their rulebook slowdown Tuesday long enough to remove a pot which had become stuck on Simon Patnall's head. Firemen said the 2-year-old's predicament was definitely an emergency and therefore exempt from the industrial action. Pope Struck In Manila VATICAN CITY (UPI)- Pope Paul's physician said today the 73-year-old pontiff was struck twice last month when a Bolivian painter tried to assassinate him during his visit to Manila. The physician. Dr. * Mario Fontana, would not elaborate but Manila newspapers said at the' time the Pope was actually hit or cut during the knife attack. One newspaper said the blade of Mendoza's weapon, a Malay dagger, . actually* struck the Pope's stiff clerical collar. "The Pope was struck twice," Fontana said, "But I am not in a position to say how or by whom." The assailant was expatriate Bolivian painter Benjamin Mendoza y Amor who lunged at him with a knife Nov. 27 as the Pope arrived at thestart of a visit to the Philippines.

We'll see you in the Sprlngll VA urged veterans living in foreign countries and interested in educational benefits to apply at the nearest American Embassy or Consular office—or to the VA regional office in Manila, if they live in the Philippine Islands. Veterans in the United States were advised to contact their nearest VA office if interested in training in a foreign country. Men and women on military duty should apply through their service departments to the Veterans Benefits Office, 2033 M St., N.W., Washington, D.C. 20421. * Indiana Gas (Continued from page one) line supplier. The revised schedules were filed in accordance with the provisions of a Public Service Commission order of December 11, 1970, authorizing gas utilities to recover such pipe line inr creases by filing proof of such increases and revised rate schedules. If the revised rate schedules are approved by the Commission they will become effective within 30 to 60 days. The adjustment will result in an increase of one-half cent (1/2?) per thousand cubic feet of gas used by all classes of customers, and will amount to about fourteen cents (14?) per average winter month for the average residential customer using gas for space heating. Since the Commission order of December 11 provides for the recovery of increased cost of purchased gas only, the Company also filed a petition asking that a review be made of increases in all of its operating expenses, including the cost of purchased gas. The Company also asks that, after public hearings, the Commission set reasonable rates which will fairly compensate it for such increases. The petition states that, except for an increase granted by the Commission for previous increased cost of purchased gas, the Company's present rates are based on the level of operating expenses and plant investment which existed on March 31,1968. During the intervening period the Company has made increases in plant' investment, and its operating costs have increased substantially and are continuing to increase under the influence of current inflationary pressures. The petition also points out that the present rates were based on financial and economic conditions as they existed on March 31, 1968, and that due to the change in such financial and economic conditions since that date the Company needs a higher rate of return to cover increased cost of borrowed money, to assure that it will be able to secure needed additional capital at reasonable cost and to continue to provide adequate and efficient service to its customers. The proposed rate schedules filed with the petition for a full' and formal rate hearing would, if approved, increase present cost of gas to the Company's customers by approximately eleven percent (11%). * Christmas Spirit (Continued from page one) . home. The utilities company contributing the jet explained "This is a community project. We're part of this community and we wanted to be part of the project." The spokesman for United Airlines Inc., which employs six pilots, said all six volunteered for the roundtrip "flight. Dick Buzbee, editor of the Olathe Daily News and active in the campaign to bring the boys home, said the return flight to Saigon would be "sometime after New Year's."
