SECOND-CLASS POSTABE PAID IN TIPTON, IND. PUBLISHED DAILY EXCEPT SUNDAY Legislature Passes Seven New Laws By HORTENSE MYERS INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) - The week-old Indiana Legislature, after passing seven new laws by overriding that many of Governor Whitcomb's 19 6 9 vetoes, today turned to enactment of a whoie library of laws wrapped up in one bill. The veto review was not without pain to Lt. Gov. Richard E. Whitcomb on all but seven— or., eight—depending on the outcome of the measure hiking payments to the disabled. The remaining 23 vetoed bills, do not involve amendments, are to be considered after "Superbill." The 25-25 tie vote on a- 1969 Senate bill 'permitting taxpayers to claim credit on gross income taxes for gifts to parochial and Fpiz, who cast his first tie-^ private schools as well as to J^ound ^Jown and Willi I lie Srilu, me WHERE THE MONEY GOES There has been, time and again, much talk about junkets Congressmen and Senators take to Europe and Asia, at taxpayer's expense. One would think, that in this day of stress, when-our economy is suffering and the pocketbooks of the people are being 'drained'. . .this type of thing would go by the board, but this seems hardly to be a fact at this time. [ This is the story of retired General Mark Clark.. .who is now chairman of the American Battle Monuments.Commission. ...and is in Manilla at .this time after a visit with President and Mrs. Chiang Kai-Shek. He has a group of 24 people.. .their tour to .find out about VJS. soldiers killed in WORLD WAR II, the KOREAN conflict .and the VIET WAR. . .to see about establishing monuments to honor the dead. . • .- | What we are trying to point out is that the general could have had .about 5 people at the most, thus CUTTING THE EXPENSE jof the.trip for Uncle Sam. Another example of the disregard for spending by government If • THE IDEA IS FINE. . .and it should be done.. .but a group of 24, plus the general does seem a little large.. .and another prime example! - WHAT'S GOOD FOR ONE EVERY NOW AND THEN the l^gisjifure will come up with an attempt" to insist that all newspaper editorials and columns be signed by the person who actually writes them. Naturally a column. . .or at least most of them we have written-or read, bears the name of the writer. EDITORIALS DO NOT.. .unless there is one that the publisher of the paper actuaUy wants to have bear his signature. /This issue conies up every now and then. Now, if this would ever get to be a necessary requirement, then maybe we all should demand to know the name of the politician's speech writer. . .and maybe even require judge's to reveal law clerks or attorneys who prepare their decisions. AND WHAT about VOICE vote on matters which happen to be of great importance, but which at times, are' made to confuse the public..and keep from being read by the public? If a man votes on something, he had better KNOW what he is voting for, and stand behind that vote!. I IT SEEMS we had an example of "follow the leader" in the INDIANA LEGISLATURE yesterday. . .but it backfired when;a Senator became momentarily "color blind" and confused.. .and voted the WRONG WAY, thereby enabling the opposition to win. SENATOR FRICK of South Bend voted with the Republicans' instead of the Demos, and thus enabled Lt Governor Folz to break a tie vote. .'• ' • j »' THE OLD STORY of "you can't tell the game and what's going on without a score card," applied here. THE SENATOR had prepared two cards, one green, the other red. . .on how to vote with the party. He became confused and mistook one color for the other! Wonder who the Senator's EYE man is? •'. j - SOMETHING FOR NOTHING j THE OLD WORLD is gradually filling up with more people who expect something for nothing. They do not work, they also contribute nothing toward the advancement of the community or the world in which they live. Yet they are tolerated, in fact more than that, they are 'handy* to have around. . .on a political basis.!, a SURE vote. . , j . THESE PEOPLE have always been tolerated.. .but "little more than that .And, leave it up to the United States politicians to come up with the idea that people should, have a 'right' to have anything for nothing! ' i ONLY HERE, could the POLITICIANS come up with the idea of a guaranteed income for doing absolutely nothing! : Perhaps the new feeling among many Americans in this day and age, is the feeling of frustration. They have voted and voted. j.. but nothing happens most of the time to reflect their votes/ They know there is something wrong.. .butfeelthat no matter how they nave 'voted. . .things do not change as they felt they would. THE PEOPLE seem to be aware of a fact that politicians, or at least some of them-, nave no further use for them, after they have won an election. They find it hard to believe that some of these men, not all, have a feeling of disregard for them.. .and are "feathering" their respective nests first It is a much" larger group at this time. ..and is not good for the morale of the country. , IF PEOPLE lose faith in our system, a mere upturn in the economic situation will npt bring them to be believers again. You know folks, it is a little hard to conceive how orderly government can be a fact under such circumstances. . : TODAY'S TIDBIT A. A COLLEGE PROFESSOR, running for office, addressed a letter to all his former students. He began: "a* you flunked my course .read no further!" breaking, vote Monday afternoon and killed a bill that would have provided aid to parochial and private schools. The House and Senate plan 1 today to suspend rules and pass "Superbiir*—the nine volume, 4,700-page bill, whose legal name is the Indiana Code of 1971. The bill is an effort to bring together on one bookshelf ail existing state laws. : The Senate Monday overrode Whitcomb's vetoes on two 1969. Senate bills, one to increase benefits to retired school teachers not eligible for social security benefits, and the, other to increase welfare payments to disabled persons. The Senate also overrode Whitcomb's veto of six House bills, on which the House bad overruled the governor last Thursday. Action by both chambers completed the-process of quick creation of new laws. The House ran into a. legal question, however, that blocked until today the final disposition of one of the two Senate bills the representatives received late Monday. Expectations- had been that the House would pass both Senate bills, but only the measure increasing benefits to retired teachers went through. A legal question on a less than constitutional majority vote to increase '. payments to disabled . persons arose and was to be settled today before consider*- • ton of "Superbill*' begins. : So far, the 1971 Legislature has. considered 41 of the 64 vetoed bills and . has upheld other educational institutions,set the stage for Folz' dilemma. The bill, as outlined to the lawmakers by Budget Director! Thomas Taylor before the Legist lature convened,, might cost as., much as $5.4 million in general:' fund revenues annually. Taylor cautioned this was a guess. He said a similar guess from revenue officials on the. amount of credits that would be claimed on gifts to colleges and universities under an earlier' law turned out to be much less when the law actually went into operation. Senate President Pro Tern Phillip Gutman, R-Fort Wayne and four other Republicans joined 20 of the 21 Democratic senators in voting to over - ride Whitcomb's veto of the bill to' give income tax credits for' gifts to parochial and other elementary and secondary schools and junior colleges, the other Republicans were Sens. Charles E. Bosma, Beech Grove, Thomas V. McComb, Fort Wayne, Robbert D. Orr, Evansville, and Gene Snowden, Huntington. Lone Democrat Sen. John J. Frick, D-South Bend, voted with 24 other Republican senators to uphold the veto through what he later said was a mistake in his personal list of biils he wanted to vote for and against. Under legislature procedure, there can be no discussion when voting to; over-ride or suspend guberna-' torial vetoes—and there are 64 of these 1969 vetoes to be voted upon this time. • . When Folz a Catholic, realiz­ ed the vote on the controversial parochial aid bill was tied, he sat down suddenly in his chair, then rose and banged . ' his gavel. "This is the beginning of a new session," Folz said, "The chair votes no. The governor's veto is sustained. The matter may be taken up later in this session." Several senators also said that they felt the type of aid proposed in the 1969 bill may not be the sort of nonpublic school aid the 1971 Legislature ultimately wilt want to enact. Some sources maintain the now dead' bill applied only to coprorations and not to gifts by individuals. Here is a thumbnail explanation of the seven new laws created by the completion of voting Monday on the amehdar tory bills Whitcomb vetoed two years ago: ~ Increase Teacher Retirement ,-' — Provide an additional $35 a month to all retired teachers not also receiving social security benefits. The estimated fiscal impact is $750,000 a year tor these, teachers, figured to number about 1,800. The Senate vote was a unanimous 50-0. The House voted a short time later, 94-0. The law has no effective date or emergency clause so it will not become effective until the 1971 laws are promulgated, probably in August — Increase the maximum welfare assistance to the blind from $95 a month to $125. The estimated fiscal impact is $98,000 a year. The Senate vote was 50-0, unanimous as was the House vote on Thursday. The law has an emergency clause and an effective date retroactively to July 1,1969, so the total amount involved in the 1970-73 period would be $235,000 according to a-Legislative Council estimate. —Hike the minimum pay of firemen and policemen in j all cities in first through fifth The TUESDAY. JANUARY 19, mi. trend Letter to the Editor. Taxation and Budget A Big Puzzle •i By JOHN B. BARRETTE INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) - The House Ways and Means Committee i today received a hefty "part of the Indiana budget package in bill form as mem-: bers stepped up efforts to fit together pieces of the taxation and budget puzzle. In the other chamber, Senators were studying a proposal to make it attractive for school boards'to use facilities all year. The year round schools measure was assigned to the Senate Education Committee. It would grant financial incentives to school corporations which submit plans for. 12 month operation. It would appropriate $5 million to provide the financial incentives. Sen. Joan M. Gubbins, R-Indianapolis, introduced the bill. The state operating cost budget bill would provide more than $1.7 billion for the 1971-73 biennium. The highway funding budget measure called for more than $396 million during the biennium. Rep. Donald Pratt R- Rockvilie, introduced them. Pre-filed and ready for introduction in the House: Tuesday were two other budget bills. The general construction budget bill would appropriate more than $24 million for the biennium. The university construction bill would appropriate $13 million cash and provide for $35 million in academic-related bonding power. Pratt and Rep. Phillip Bainbridge, D-Highland, co-authored the bills. A joint resolution introduced in the Senate would give the Legislature the power to change methods of selecting elective county officers by amending the Indiana Constitution.' The offices are clerk to the circuit court, auditor, recorder, treas-; urer, sheriff, coroner and surveyor. The resolution would give the Legislature power to make the offices other ..than elective, abolish any of them and replace them with other offices, or consolidate them with other offices and classify the counties for carrying out such actions. " The proposal must pass both chambers of during this and the next' session and then go to a referendum.'The resolution was introduced by Sen. Thomas V. McComb, R-Fort Wayne. A concurrent resolution introduced in the same chamber • would ask the boards of trustees of the three state universities to conduct a study to de' termine whether regional cam• puses are ready to achieve independence. Sens. Robert D. . Orr, R-Eyansviile, and Eugene Bainbridge, D-Munster, introduced it. Sen. W. W. Hill Jr., R-Indianapolis, introduced a controversial measure to form a State Board of Pensions which would oversee investments for .the state's five, retirement benefit funds. Previously made public, it has received backing from the head of. the Public Em­ ployes Fund, Hayden Shepherd, but Robert Wyatt, executive secretary of the Indiana State Teachers' Association, opposes it A measure to insure that automobile . anti-pollution devices were installed and in proper working order through vehicle inspections also was introduced in the Senate by Hill. Two bills were introduced and. a third was pre-filed in the House to raise the age for com-, pulsory school attendance to 18. All were authored by Reps.< Anna Maloney, D-Gary, and Ray Crowe, R-Indianapolis. . Other House bills introduced or pre-filed would: -^Increase personal exemptions on the adjusted gross income tax for persons 60 and over to $1,000. (Loy-Bell) . —Prohibit compulsory dona-, tions to political parties as a condition of employment cr union membership and provide for a fine of from $100 to $300. (Lamkin) — Provide for a minimum penalty of life imprisonment without possibility of parole for killing a police officer, as does a previously introduced Senate bill. (Mclntyre) j —Allow physicians holding a foreign medical license and meeting certain other requirements to practice medicine in Indiana. (Gordon) Other Senate bills introduced : would: — Provide for establishment of the Indiana School for the Blind, and stipulates the program to be provided. (Bosma) -r Provide that employers must pay wages at least every two weeks on employe demand. (Kleinkort) — Prohibit the requirement of taking a lie detector test as a| condition of employment. (Benjamin-Kizer) —Allow all cities and towns authority to dispose of abandoned vehicles and define the word abandonment (Snowden - Plaskett) — Require that county councils or equivalent bodies act as boards of tax adjustment and abolished boards of tax adjustment (Bosma) —Allow consumers to finance the sales tax as well as the purchase price of any item they buy. (Snowden-Conrad) class, which could involve an increase; in property tax. The Senate vote was 42-7, compared to 64-34 in the House, j— Provide that salaries set by law for county officials are to be considered as minimum salaries and that increases could be' made by the counties, a procedure that also could involve increases in property taxes j but has tremendous home rule importance. The Senate vote was 50-0. The House vote, last week bad been 95-3. -Increase the dollar amount . of, government purchases exempt from the law requiring the| letting of bids and legal advertising. The Senate vote was 29-21, while the House had voted 65-33. —Allow school officials to furnish extbooks in cases of hardship, to pay membership dues out of i corporation funds a n d make other changes in school funds. The Senate vote was 500, while the House had balloted\ last week: 68-28 to override. i i.-i •!• - . |. Pay Drainage Costs —Require j the state to pay the cost | of reconstruction of city and j town drainage facilities when such work was necessitated by state highway construction, a procedure that might mean $150,000 extra a year in ; state funds to local government. The Senate vote was 38-12, compared to the House vote of 95-3. Machine To Find Cancer V LAFAYETTE, Ind.

' i • • i i • Loew's procedures were described as "providing a preliminary statistical basis for diagnostic decision through sequential classification and evaluation of error probability." j "It has been demonstrated," Loew I said, "that computers have a great potential in assisting the physician in medical diagnosis. The assistance should make for faster, less costly and hopefully more accurate diagnosis, thus improving a patient's prognosis, especially in the case of rare disease." Loew gathered information from a student of patient records in Chicago's Presbyterian- St. Luke's Hospital and data acquired from Physicians Clinical Laboratory, in Lafayette. . i From the hospital research, the data was in the form of conventional information collected in the traditionally sequential manner by physicians | and medical staff members, j He selected 50 patient records which included carcinoma of the pancreas and 15 others of. primary carcinoma of the liver. : A sample of 14 cases was retained from the group and a set. of 25 features essentially common ; to all was prepared. That group was further boiled down to seven for use in the computer, diagnostic technique. to plastics NEW YORK (UPI) - The "Plastic Age" is making it big on the American home furnishings scene. i By 198(\ more than three- fourths of ill furniture will be made in If art or entirely of plastic, according- to an executive of a jl-ading producer of eycolac, a material largely responsible ifor. the trend to mod- • em plastic! furniture.' • j' "While! plastic will continue to be used jin large volume as a Mitatitute material in stni-fural and .decorative applications, the greatest growth will be in exciting new designs that bring, plastic out in the open by capitalizing (in their visual appeal and desig^iV versatility;" says Jack' 1.. philter: vice president' director for Borg- Marbou division.

One that would stomp down all that trash in the can. There is an electric appliance that rams trash like an elephant but is much trimmer and tidier. It's a compactor. trash goes in a drawer lined with a specially * treated paper bag, is squirted with a deodorizer 'and mashed with a ton of pressure. When a bag is filled (about once a week for a family of four), it is lifted out—ready for pick-up without worry about banged up cans, lost lids and hovering flies. I ' ' ' ' only 15 inches wide, the compactor may fill a dead space at the end of a kitchen counter or be built-in under it. To foil curious youngsters, it takes a key to turn it on and the mashing action lasts only a minute. electricity puts its power behind another pounding job: tenderizing meat. With )IOOO blows a minute (can you work so fast?), an electric tenderizer about the size of a hand mixer breaks down tough meat fibers. In addition to making cheaper (but often tastier) cuts of meat more appealing, it puts veal and chicken into shape for Veal Scallopini and Chicken Kiev. It can be used with dicer blades for high speed slicing and chopping. I . ''• i- ' .- . . • some slicing tasks take skill as well as power. It's worth the time to practice with an electric knife. You can learn to divide an angel cake into layers (slice away from yourself), make paper thin cuts of cold meat (slant the cutting edge in toward the food) and'flute the edge of melons (use the end of the knife).
