SECOND-CLASS POSTABE PAID IN TIPTON, IND. PUBLISHED DAILY EXCEPT SUNDAY ttvn ant J With ike DrlL tune; THE BIG HOAX? By R.D, Marie* WHAT COULD turn out to be the biggest HOAX'tof the 1971 Legislature might just be, the promise of RELIEF for the pro -j perty taxpayer. It is significent that much ado is being createdj about the relief at the start of this session. Could it be that the furore is being created to lull the taxpayer to sleep.. .as has been the case before, and the session end with no creative legislation being voted through, that might ease the burden on the man who pays the bills? And there is another case in point." What has been gained in favor of the 5 taxpayer if he is taxed just as much.] in other areas and pays out as much in total taxes? ( IN ANY EVENT the: BIG EVENT opens today at 10 a.m., and they have tabbed it one to be watched with considerable interest. •The Gross income tax will probably come infor some GRAFTING by the legislative surgeons. . .and a standby of blood for the DONORS had better be in order. , IN ANY EVENT, the meeting should prove to be a lively one, with much discussion, jprobably not too much relief for the property taxpayer. . .and one which will bring about an answer as to whether the 'longer sessions' of the body are a HELP or HINDER- ANCE for the man who pays the bills! | . YOUR GUESS 1971 MAY NOT bring too much change for the best to the general public, at least to those who like to keep holidays, especially National holidays, as special days. First they tempered with 4 Washington's' Birthday, then Memorial Day, Veterans Day and Columbus Day. ' | 1971 IS the MAGIC YEAR, the year in which the UNIFORM , MONDAY HOLIDAYS LAW takes effect. Dates of these are changed from their'traditional :days to specific Mondays', thereby - providing, with Labor Day, at least five three day weekends for . workers in 45 states. ' THE LAW WAS PUSHED by the Chamber of Commerce of the United States.. .after several years of trying to get the job done. Business members seemed to be very much in favor of the plan. , They felt that the change would give employees more time for travel or family recreation.. .and they felt it would prevent some absenteeism and midweek shutdowns. THIS IS IT AS IT STANDS, the law provides that Washington's Birthday fall] on the third Monday in February; Memorial Day the last Monday in May; Columbus Day the second Monday; Veterans Day the fourth Monday in October. The measure was signed into law by Presi -j dent Johnson in 1968. i THE LAW ITSELF applies only to the District of Columbia: and to FEDERAL employees, giving states the option of adopting similar laws. It brought almost immediate action from the states^ . and every state, except Louisiana, Oklahoma, South Dakota, West Virginia and Wisconsin enacted same. With legislatures of these states scheduled to meet in 1971. . .this making the possibility of 100% acceptance likely. ° • WHAT DID YOU RESOLVE? 1 SINCE WE ARE well into the first month of the 1971 year we wonder what is happening.. .have the resolutions been thrown out as passe? . ' M THIS SEEMS to be a time when the old resolves.. .and the standbys are gone. The Seal of Approval for instance; it looks like it has been replaced by a new one,, the RALPH NADER SEAL! TIME WHEN some teachers find they haven't covered 'viwythinfc they had planned for the first semester.,, .and students find THEY haven't learned everything that's already been covered. [ ; | TIME WHEN you putaway the Christmas tinsel...and along with them.. .your New Year's Resolutions. j j 1 TIME WHEN dad is injured trying to keep the kids from turning off the baUgames. . .to the comedy shows and the cartoons. TIME WHEN the sun is not strongenoughto keep you warm, but is bright enough to blind you as you drive your car in the late afternoon. ' / I - '! TIME WHEN you should be counting your blessings at times, instead of griping about your troubles. TIME FOR ME to end this, and let you concentrate on making 1971 a little different! • TODAY-THEN TOMORROW IN THE 'hustle and bustle' World.. .jusfremember that TODAY is with us now. It is a brief period of time to use as we see fit. You can waste it if you wish, this is your privilege. But/, .weall* should determine to get everything out of itwe can. It's more than just a day, it is a link in either a successful chain.. .or an un-' successful one. JUST REMEMBER. . ,TODAY may affect your TOMORROW! What we have done in the past does affect the future. If you do well today, you will probably have the confidence to do as good or better tomorrow. • THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUN TUESDAY, JANUARY 12, 1971 TELEVISION SCHEDULE News Disturbing to Political Figures 4:00 O <» Dick Von Dyke O Early Report O B'9 News Q Eyewitness Newt ED Wirt's New 6:30 O Daniel Boone Q Early Report (Cont'd) O Big Newt (Cont'd) O ABC Newt © Misterogert 7:00 CI Daniel' Boone '.Cont'd) O NBC Newt O CBS Newt . © Beat the Clock .

By DICK WEST- .WASHINGTON (UPI) - Recent reports that Army intelligence agents had been collecting information about UJ5. political figures were disturbing to many people^,Particularly U.S. political figures. 'Everyone felt I a lot better after the Army j denied it had ever done such a thing and promised not to do it any more. But the specter of military meddling in the civilian political system isn't that easily ~ dispelled; T~Sen. Sam J. Ervin Jr.', D- N.C., who made, public the allegation, plans, to hold hearings on the matter next month. Seeking an indication of what , sort of explanation the Army might give, I called up a fellow I know at the Pentagon. O O o CD 11:00 Girl Talk ° Century Sale Family Affair .

DeBakey, holding a part of the latest artificial heart, said although development is advancing with experimental animals he could not say when the heart could, be used successfully in humans. Other parts on the table before DeBakey represent 10-years of research in artificial hearts.

I said, "That is a very commendable attitude. But why did you have intelligence agents collecting' the information covertly?" Naturalness Plays Part "We feel that naturalness plays an important part in appraising a political figure. Many politicians tend to put on a false front in public. If you observe them unawares you can get a better line on what they are really like." "That makes sense," I said. "But aren't military intelligence agents only supposed to be used on assignments that have some military significance?" "A soldier doesn't divest himself of the duties of good citizenship when he puts on a uniform," my Pentagon friend replied.
