[ SECOND-CLASS POSTABE PAID IN TIPTON, DJD. PUBLISHED DAILY EXCEPT SUNDAY . 0 and Willi lL 3rdu, ine ,\ By R D. Money THE SUPERBILL Let's all hope the "Superbill".. .which they put together in the Indiana Assembly. . .will prove .out well. . .and will atj least bring some sort of togetherness, plus relief, to the Indiana taxpayer, as well as to the government of the State of Indiana. AT LEAST, let us aUhope that'Superbill'will not be a rather .attractive DUD such as the Super Bowl games which are carried • to an EXTREME by the powers that be in big league football. There are those who claim it as wonderful., .and would stay 'glued to the BOOB TUBE for months to come. . .but even though we played the game In high school and college, enough is enough; and all games played after a regular season and a TOP playoff... are done for one reason. ...and that is to relieve the fan of his earnings. . .and there is a marked similarity between the Super- bill and the Super Bowls, and others! | | LET'S ALL KEEP our fingers crossed. . .and hope they will get down to brass tacks and give some relief in the property tax section. • I j' ' THE START of the 1971 Legislature was not too bad at all. Aside from the usual SHENANIGANS. . .the body moved much faster than those "in the past. . .despite the fact they will have more time for their work in this session. Now it depends on ! just what legislation they consider the most important.. .in the long pull, and whether they aim to get it done, without an apology due. the taxpayer at the end of the line. They have more time. j. .but this does not always mean they will use that time to the best advantage of the people who sent them to do the job.. Sometimes more time to do. . .leads to less actual work. Let us hope this will not be the outcome. j WE DON'T BELIEVE anyone except the most astute of politicians can tell whether or not there will be a tax increase, which will more than offset the relief they may get from property taxes. There may be some SUGAR coated pills handed John Q. Public regarding the property tax and others before this session is over. LOCAL OPTION to help the cause along may sound well... with the county or city able to tack a SURTAX on for school or other purposes.. .but there may be unexpected opposition to this. COMMUNITIES throughout the state very in regard to abilities in raising more money from the taxpayer. Poor munities, or those who now barely bold their heads, above would not be able to live with such a tax. their . jcom- water, THERE IS MUCH opposition from almost every side. 1 . .in regard to a raise in taxes by this legislature. People do not accept the performances of their legislators as they once may| have accepted them. They have had many, many promises of f what will be done', then found their stockings empty on]the great day they were supposed to be liberated, and receive, instead of give. GOVERNOR WHITCOMB has made his-PITCH. ' He supports property tax relief. . .but he will not go along with any taxfwhich adds more to the burden of the general taxpayer. Whether the Governor can veto a measure passed. ..isthe prime question. Whether that veto can be overridden is another question. Too much politics may be involved. APRIL 15 may be "cutoff" day. . .however April. 15 may be closer to the time. But then.. .how about April 1, then the public could celebrate a little, after all that's April Fool's Dayl There is one thing GOING for the taxpayer. The legislators nave written in new HOUSE and SENATE rules which require that all votes in committee sessions be a matter of record thus be available to BOTH the PRESS and the PUBLIC. At least this will result well as a more TRUSTING public in both the word of the legislators and the news media. ROUND THE COUNTY . WHAT COULD BE termed one of the most important steps this county has ever taken, one which will one day bring about! more harmony between the people of the county. . .and the people oT the City of Tipton, seems to this writer to be.. .the CONSOLIDATION of the school systems. In Tipton this has proved most jbene- ficial. . .and we are sure that with the birth of Tri-Central.... and the integration of students of Windfall, Sharpsville- Prairie. We will find that although there will be much rivalry in one way, the students will also bring the adults closer to the relationship that belongs in every county.. .to ENRICH that county.. .anil help one another in different areas, solve their problems. THIS WE BELIEVE. . .and we sincerely hope we are right! NOW YOU CAN GET AN EXPENSIVE..

Science Today By DELOSSMITH UPt Science Editor NEW YORK (UP!)— If you quickly medicate a person with plague you probably will save his life. If you delay you probably won't. Two scientific authorities on plague spoke with this emphasis to American doctors. Most American doctors have never seen plague and the experts were not expecting them to start seeing a lot of this disease, caused by a bacillus which from- time : to time over the centuries has killed the millions in vast epidemics, But the chance of any given doctor encountering it is being increased by growing international air travel of tourists, businessmen and of soldiers between the United States and Vietnam, said' Drs. Carlton G. Reiley. and Eugene D. Kates. They told doctors to have the possibility of plague in mind when confronted by a not readily identifiable feverish illness accompanied by bubo— an inflammation of one or more lymph nodes. Plague usually first manifests itself that way; hence its. . common name, bubonic plague. Start treatment at once with two antibiotics without waiting^ for laboratory confirmation of the diagnosis, they advised in Archives of Internal Medicine, a journal of the American Medical Association. They recommended simultaneous use of streptomycin, which kills the bacillus, and one of the broad- spectrum antibiotics which prevent its multiplication. "A few hours delay may markedly increase the prospects of a fatal outcome," they said. "If diagnosed and treated early bubonic plague is usually responsive and carries a low mortality of 1 to 5 per cent." But if untreated, they added, mortality may reach 60 to 70 per cent. Reiley is a lieutenant colonel in the Army Medical Corps now stationed in the Army General. Hospital in Honolulu and Kates, works in the Los Angeles Veterans Administration Hospital. Both acquired their plague expertise in dealing with actual' cases in Vietnam, where the' disease has long been endemic. They detailed its clinical manifestations in eight patients, two of them American service- 1 • men. Six recovered, including the Americans. U.S. personnel in Vietnam are immunized but the disease, which essentially affects ! rats and is spread by rat fleas, occasionally brjeaks through [this barrier^ Apollol4Moon Rocket Loaded For 4th Launch By AL ROSSITER Jr. UPI Space Writer CAPE KENNEDY (UPI>The launch crew prepared to pump 736,000 gallons of frigid propellants into the Apollo 14 rocket today to wind up a critical triil countdown for the Jan. 31 start of the nation's fourth moon-landing mission. The week-long launch pad . test was scheduled to stop just', short of engine ignition at 3:23 v p.m. EST. :) Because of .the risks involved' witha fully fueled Saturn ; 5 rocket, astronauts Alan B.'-' Shepard, Stuart A. Rbosa and Edgar D. Mitchell did not, participate in today's exercise. They will run throughan abbreviated countdown' Tuesday after the rocket's propellants" have been drained. The astronauts, living in isolation here in an attempt to keep healthy, passed four-hour, physical examinations Saturday and were pronounced "perfectly normal" with no medical problems. They gradually are slowing the pace of training for the ambitious nine-day mission. They relaxed in their quarters-.' Sunday^ and watched the superbowl game on television. The countdown rehearsal,," / known to engineers as the countdown demonstration test last Tuesday ' the ' was by Helen Bottel History Repeats, and Repeats Dear Helen: I met Marty when he was married to his first wife. Three days after he got his. divorce, we married, and I was expecting his baby. His wife gave their three children up for adoption. The court Wanted me to take them, but I was stiU a teen-ager and couldn't cope with all those kids. We got along fine for six months. Then I found out he was running around on me. If I said anything, he beat me up, and started blaming, me for his losing his first three children. He left me jiist after our second daughter was born — to live with a girl who was three months pregnant, by him. That broke iip, and when he came home, he was real good for a while, but then he met my cousin, and off he went again. Next thing I heard he was in jail on a drug charge. My parents put up the bail to get him out -- they had to borrow, and they've Aever got it back. When in jail, Marty promised me the sky if Fd just give him one more chance. The sky fell after a week, when I found him with the doper he got busted with. Up to then I was faithful, but I decided this was dumb, so now I've found a wonderful guy. My husband knows, but still lives with me and the children. He seems to think this is a good arrangement — each of us doing what we please, but sharing a house. My new boy friend isn't in a position tomarry and raise my family « he's still in school and working part time (would you believe this — in the same shop with Marty, and they're friends!) Maybe the men are happy, but Pm not. And I'm afraid for how it will affect my daughters. Marty says he should never have got his first divorce and lost his kids, but inasmuch as I "stole" a guy once, I deserve what Tm getting now, and why should I kick: He lets me have my boy friend? Right now the two guys in my life are out playing pool together. Where does that leave me? ~ NOT THAT MODERN Dear Not: ' • ' ' .. — In the big middle of a mess! I'd suggest you give both men their walking papers and start learning how to walk a straight line yourself! Which means: Get a job, concentrate on raising your daughters, and stay away from married men! ~ H. Dear Helen: ' - ' The encyclopedia explanation of the word "Hoosier" is incorrect, as you stated it in a recent column. , The name derived from Samuel Hoosier, a contractor on the Ohio Falls Canal at Louisville, Kentucky, who gave employment preference to men living in Indiana. His workers were called Hoosier Men, later "Hoosiers." «.

It designed to check the niajor systems in the Apollo 14 rocket and spacecraft and to make certain they _ mesh smoothly, with /ground supporting equipment, v "The fact that we're in the . CDDT itself shows that we're in. good posture leading into the actual countdown,'' said launch . director Walter J. Kapryan midway I through the exercise. "The hardware is in good shape and the modifications required for the spacecraft and launch, j vehicle as a result of Apollo 13 •have been made . and 'validated. "Contingent on the •completion of the normal tasks before us, the; Kennedy Space Center '. .is ready to go for launch." Apollo 14 must be laun :hed by 1-.IZ p.m. EST Jan. 31 or the \ mission will be delayed until i March 1. The lone launch opportunity this month - was caused J by the fact that the astronauts have only one moon- landing j site and sun-lighting conditions there permit only, one landing a month. The plan is for Shepard and Mitchell 1 to land in a valley on the geologically interesting! Frai Mauro I formation at 4:17 [a.m. EST . Feb. 5 while Roosa remains in lunar orbit.

MONDAY, JANUARY 18, 1971 UCTURE UPPER MANTLE 150 MILES THICK LOWER MANTLE 60 MILES THICK CORE 1700 MILES DIAMETER HOUSTON, TEX.: First measurements of the Moon's interior, indicate it has a basalt-like mantle 210 miles deep, which apparently surrounds a cool core of primordial, olivine-like rock, according to NASA scientists at the Apollo Lunar Science conference. Measurements were'made with the,Ames magnetometer placed on the Moon by the Apollo 12 astronauts, and the Explorer 35 Moon-orbiting satellite. The measurements also suggested that the Moon's "outer layer was melted during the first billion years of its 4.5 biUion-year history. - UPI TELEPHOTO •• ' .
