The Farmers Loan and Trust Jungle Pilot Finds Satisfaction In Aiding The Natives Of IN ew Guinea By Pat Cline News Editor A Cessna 206 slowly circles a bird-shaped island known as New Guinea as the pilot searches for a clearing in the remote tribal village to land his air craft and'spe­ cial cargo'. Descending to the landing area, the Cessna rolls roughly over a makeshift strip coming to a halt near a row of thatched huts. In awe of the aircraft and somewhat fearful and skeptical, a group, of dark-skinned and wooly- haired natives inch their way to­ wards the plane. The pilot, Ron Gluck, son-in-law of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Bishop, route smiles at the natives as he assists his passengers from the plane. Mr. Gluck completes another important mission as he transports the team of two Bible translators to the small village whose occupants are illiterate, underfed and underprivileged natives. He leaves his passengers behind with the natives and flies the Cessna back to the Base Center. Here he is on call to serve as a 'lifeline' between the base and the tribe. Should the team of translators meet with an emergency or special problem, they radio for assistance to the Base and Gluck quickly goes to their aid by plane. As one of seven jungle pilots in the New Guinea islands serving with Wycliffe Bible Translators, Inc., an interdenominational organization, Gluck helps in making pioneering possible and practical in isolated areas of-the island. He may be called to evacuate translators from an' isolated post or to deliver food, clothing and medicines. He is part of the support personnel team for the translators which enables them to devote their time to concentrated language study. Mr. Gluck, his wife Ruth and their three small children lived at the Base, which was named Ukarump for the past five years. Their home was a simple type but sturdy structure built upon poles due to prevelant earthquakes. Surrounding Ukarump are tribal groups who live inwo­ ven huts with thatched roofs and (Continued on page six) Company, The Citizens National Bank, The Tipton Building and Loan Association and the First Federal Savings and Loan Association all will observe the one day, January 1, 1971 by being closed and then all will open Saturday January 2, 1971 for regular business.

Wheat Proven Yields for 1971 I Focus '71: Presidency at Halfway Mark (EDITOR'S NOTE: Administration sources have been issuing their evaluations of President . Nixon's first two years in office. The following is an independent appraisal by a UPI reporter who has covered the White House since 1960. She finds both pluses and minuses. But she writes that above all, Nixon must stabilize the economy and drawing from in 1972.) continue with. Vietnam to win By HELEN THOMAS WASHINGTON (UPI) — At half time in his term, Richard Milhous Nixon exudes confidence that he can. solve the monumental national and international problems that will New Fencing-- workers for Hbosier Fence Company pour cement foundations for poles for the new fencingtobeerectedatTipton Disposal Plant. The work began Monday. The fence will foUow the contour of the plant grounds. ^ (Staff Photo by Eldon Cage) determine, his political fate in 1972. The President is fully aware, of- course, that he must continue to wind down the war in Vietnam and jack up a sagging domestic economy. He can point to some accomplishments in Vietnam. When he took over from Lyndon B. Johnson on Jan. 20, 1969, there were 543,000 U.S. troops in Vietnam. He had steadily reduced this figure to 344,000 as of mid-December and plans to cut it to 284,000 by May 1. American casualties have dropped from 300 a week to 30 a week. Whether or not the President convinces the people that Vietnam "may have been one of America's finest hours," he apparently has won their support with his promise to wind down the war. A Question of Peace ' If he succeeds, few probably 1 will ask whether he also has met his oft-spoken goal of a "jiish and honorable peace" or a Vfuli generation of peace." That seems to be the mood of America. People are weary of war* Their concerns center on inflation and . unemployment. And| these are the problems Nixon must solve if he expects to win a second term in 1972. His efforts to cool the economy, coupled with the military cutbacks, have increased unemployment by two million since he took office; "But now we're talking about more positive things," said one administration insider. "Infla­ tion is slowing down. In the next two years we are going to see a positive program to build a new prosperity." • Plans Economic Expansion Nixon's "game plan" calls for moves to expand the economy — even at the cost of red-ink spending—and more "jawboning" to pressure union and business officials into holding the wage price line. The White House would just as soon forget the off-year elections that found Nixon defying his own 1968 pledges to "bring us together" and his admonition to political partisans to "lower your voices." The President assumed an intensely political partisan role in the recent elections. He supported mainly candidates who agreed fuiiy with him, hit hard at law and order and indicated by. his silence, if nothing else, that he. supported the tough 'approach of Vice President Spiro Agnew. He succeeded in knocking off a couple of Senate critics but the Democrats picked up several governorships and state legislatures. Picture of President The picture of Nixon now being projected, by aides is that of a strong leader, working with Democrats and healing GOP wounds — but above all striving for the common good as he sees it. With the democrats firmly in control of Congress, Nixon's legislative triumphs have been few. But he did win a draft reform act. He also signed into law his anticrime package and achieved a Post Office Department reorganization, the final fruits of which are yet to be established. - To get i a better grip on homefront < problems, Nixon established in the White House the Domestic Council to advise on domestic programs and the Office of Budget and Manage- Carl Retherford, Chairman of the Tipton ASC Committee, announced that the basic provisions for proven wheat yields are continued under the Agricultural Act of 1970.- Wheat producers may elect to establish a yield for their farm based on actual production rather than use of a yield established by the county committee on a judgment basis only. The base period for establishing 1971 farm yields is 1967, 1968, and 1969. To prove a farm yield, producers must have harvested wheat acreage in each of these three years and be able to provide reliable proof of production on the harvested acres. hi order to assure consideration,, a written request must be made within 15 days at the local ASCS office. Chairman Retherford stated that production data timely received will be considered before producers are notified of their official 1971 farm wheat yields. Knights Templar To Install New Officers (Continued on page two) Announcement has been made that Tipton Cqmmandery No. 52, Knights Templar, will hold its annual installation of newly elected officers for the year, 1971, Friday evening, January 1, beginning at 7:30 p.m. at the Tipton Masonic Temple.
