Page 6 Gl Charged THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE * Jungle Pilot (Continued from page one) (Continued from page one) were confiscated at the bouse where the slaying apparently occurred. Officers said the killing may have resulted from the continuing fued between hippies and "bikers" who began moving in on the district last summer. Hippies have complained that motorcycle toughs hive been terrorizing the area, molesting girls and taking drugs away, from them. One man, identified only as "Skinny," said he knew all of the younger hippies living in the . house, including those charged with murder. "These people were just protecting their property as anyone would," be said. The residents of the house have been robbed a number of times, he said, mostly by "bikers." _ "Skinny" said he knew T'Souvas very well. "He's a very concerned, very confused guy over this My Lai incident." And, be said, he was not typical of the others living in the bouse. "These people (T'Souvas and his wife) are more into working lor a living and raising their baby," he said. McSherry, nicknamed "Tree" because of his 6-foot-7 height, was found lying near the entrance of a bouse on 14th EtreeL He had been struck in the face by a shotgun blast. Other members of the so- called "hip" community said they knew of McSherry. One long-haired youth, who refused to give his name out of fear of reprisals from other "bikers," said "he was always hassling (harassing) people on the strip (the hip area)." "He'd walk up to you —he looked just like a Green Bay Packer — and if. you bad any - .money on you, it was his," the youth said.

A large water tank catches rainwater which must be boiled for drinking. Each of the tribal groups speak a different language. The people are plagued with malaria, dystentary and other illnesses. Mrs. Gluck explained that the greatest cause of death is pneumonia in the moun- house, including T'Souvas' wife, Rebecca, and their year-old child, were taken into custody and all but the infant were charged with occupying a dive. All except Mcs. T'Eouvas, the infant and a juvenile girl were also charged with murder. The hippie district, a concentration of old, inner city homes, is contained, roughly, in a four block area between 10th and 14th Streets, and is bisected by Atlanta's famed Peacbtree Street A house where a group of cyclists roomed was rocked by an explosion last fall, but no one was seriously hurt and the area has been relatively quiet since. Police searched the house where McSherry's body was found and' confiscated 18 Molotov cocktails, one stick of dynamite, two shotguns, seven . rifles, four pistols, several television sets, stereo sets, a quantity of drugs and $3,100 in cash. 'T'Souvas is also charged with the machinegun deaths of two unidentified Vietnamese civilians at My Lai. He is scheduled to undergo a pretrial hearing at Ft. McPherson in Atlanta Jan. 12, and then immediately stand court-martial. LIVESTOCK tain regions. "The natives do not know how to take tare of sickness, their eating habits are poor and sanitary conditions almost deplorable," she stated. While Ron is flying into isolated ares, Ruth is not idle. She also works as a member of the' support personnel team. Her duties range from public relations to taking care of the children of translators who are working in the remote jungles. Both of the Clucks feel that their work with Wycliffe is important and essential. There are 160,000 people, speaking 2500 languages, who have never had a translation of any portion of the Bible. Through the efforts of Wycliffe Translators Inc. personnel, many small isolated tribal groups who are illiterate and underprivileged now have a chance to read of God's love. New Guinea alone represents well over 1000 languages which are unwritten and . without scriptures, the Glucks explained. The Glucks found saying'good­ bye' to the people of New Guinea rather difficult after livingamoug the tribes for five years. "The. people are so happy to realize words put on paper have meaning." As the scriptures are taught, many lives are changed and the natives become useful citizens with new purpose and meaning," they stated. While on a year's furlough in the states, the Glucks have traveled extensively explaining the work of Wycliffe Translators, Inc and the future plans of the organization. They have visited during the holidays with Mr. and Mrs. Bishop and plan to return to Baltimore Friday where they are making their home. In June, 1971, the Glucks will go to Nigeria to start a new jungle aviation and radio service for • Fleet Commended (Continued from page one) over, symbolizing the transfer of title today of the last of the 650 boats which comprised the Wycliffe. The service is needed in that area to provide emergency service, increase, the safety factor since air travel in that area is much safer than road and make possible immediate and direct linguistic, consultant help over the air. There are many other services which the aviation and radio program will provide to remote areas of Nigeria and Came- roun. Ron will be responsible for the development of the aviation service in Nigeria while a man who has served two years in Brazil will set up the radio program. The two men must procure the needed equipment costing approximately $122,000 in order to carry-on the proposed service. A graduate electrical engineer from Pittsburgh, Ron first became interested in Wycliffe while attending a prayer breakfast with •"• a business associate. At the breakfast, he met a Bible Translator and was intrigued as he heard the translators story of Wycliffe's work around the world. Having received his pilot's wings while serving in the Air Force and feeling a need to find a specific purpose in life, Ron began working with Wycliffe seven years ago. He later met Ruth who was taking graduate study in preparing for mission work in Africa. The couple were married and left for New Guinea. They both agreed that the years spent in working in the native jungles has been personally rewarding and they are lookingfor- ward to serving in Nigeria. Tomorrow: Two Thousand Tongues To Go U.S. Riverine Navy in Vietnam- two years ago. Vice Adm. Jerome H. King Jr., commander of U.S. naval forces Vietnam (NAVFORV), who signed the transfer of title for the United States, said of the brown water fleet: "They kept the enemy off balance and on the defensive with their 'board and search' tactics, inshore and coastal surveillance, river: patrols, troop insertions and attacks on enemy base camps and supply points. They encountered difficult operating areas with heavy obituaries Tipton Native Dies Today Miss Alma Doversberger, 74, Tipton, died today at Lutheran Home KendalviUe.

"They demonstrated that coordinated river and coastal operations are not Only feasible, but are essential in this war. And they proved to the enemy that the has no sanctuary whew faced with the combined efforts of water craft, air forces and ground forces... "The Vietnamese people are now able to travel most of the waterways of the republic with far greater freedom and safety '• than before. Areas that once were enemy-controlled are now open to economic development. Thenemy is no longer able to use freely these waterways. His supply traffic has diminished and the frequency and duration of his attacks are less than they were just a few months ago." The South Vietnamese navy has expanded from 2,000 men in six river assault groups and 30 ships in 1954 to nearly 1,500 combat and logistics vessels, manned by nearly 40,000 men this year. The result is that South Vietnam is the world's 10th largest naval force. Rear Adm. Tran Van Chon, South Vietnam's chief of naval operations, accepted title to the boats under the UJS. Navy's accelerated turnover of assets to the Vietnamese navy (AC- TOV) program. The riverine force operated in the Mekong Delta, the Saigon area and in the river network of the five northernmost provinces. At times its work was more hazardous than that of ground troops.
