Member: UNITED PRESS INTERNATIONAL Entered as Second Class Matter October 4, 1895 at the Post Office in Tipton, Indiana, under the Act of Congress of March 3, 1897. SECOND-CLASS POST ABE PAID IN TIPTON, IND. PUBLISHED DAILY EXCEPT SUNDAY wn in J Willi Vie Drihui ine ADVERTISING MOST PEOPLE not interested in advertising, whether it be in the newspaper, magazines, TV, radio, etc; sometime along the way, realize that although they may claim NOT TO BE regular readers of ads. . .follow them in one way or another for the best results to bring satisfaction to them in the POCKETBOOK department. NATURALLY, this writer believes, despite the fact that TV seems to have first call on some companies when it comes to use of the tube as against the newspaper medium, that when the real - test is there.. .newspaper advertising will come out FIRST in most cases. This is because the newspaper can be read, and reread, and if the message of the advertiser doesn't get over the first time, it may do the job the second.. .or maybe even more than two or three times the potential customer picks up the paper to read it.- ANOTHER REASON is that the newspaper 'sticks around* the house awhile, while the ads on TV...are there.. .and then GONE. POLLS TAKEN now aha then, show that when most items to be advertised, are checked, the newspaper will come out ahead, although it is a fact perhaps that TV has certain advantages at times.' ADVERTISING in your HOMETOWN NEWSPAPER has certain advantages also. You are close to the field, can take advantage of the ads in your local newspaper.. .and as it is a part of your local community, and the people who work there, are your friends and neighbors. It is .an -INTEGRAL part of the community. MANY PEOPLE believe they are saving money when they attend sales out of town. However, this is not necessarily so, for if all is counted up. . .they spend mofe money going out of town to shop, especially for items they might have purchased at home; ADMITEDLY there are times when it is necessary to shop elsewhere, especially for items that cannot be purchased in the hometown. A larger inventory is carried by the larger stores t but if most people would advise the hometown merchant of what they, want, that he doesn't have in stock, a smart merchant will ' DO SOMETHING about it. However there is a limit in what can be handled at the local level. '.'V. . NOW WE ARE SURE that this newspaper, as well as most local ' merchants will endevour to see that the merchandise you want is on hand. After all, the local merchant' is the man who is in business to serve you; HE had enough FAITH in this community to invest money in it to serve you, and it wouldn't be much of a community- if the local stores were absent, now, would it? Think it over.. .and the next time you really DON'T HAVE TO GO. OUT OF TOWN to shop.. .stay here and do some prospecting on the home front, it helps the town, the local merchant.. .and in the long run, YOU. . ifor it keeps local business alive.. .and is an integral part of the life of any community. ' I SOMETIMES, it may not make SENSE. . .to try and save a few CENTS!. THIS REMINDS US of a remark made at one time by a well known newspaper man. He said: "Of course we'll have to admit that our advertising isn't quite as glamorous as one other media. A race horse-hitched to a PLOW probably looks nice too, but in order to get4lie job done rightyouhave to hitch up the old DRAFT HORSE." END OF QUOTE. So, maybe we would rather be somewhat akin to the draft horse type.. .and get the job done, satisfying YOU, than to have the glamour without the RESULTSI ROUND TOWN SEVERAL LOCAL MERCHANTS we have talked with over the past few days, while advising that the business is not all they would like it to be, seem ratter satisfied with the amount of ' business they have received in spite of the acknowledged lack of 'action* one might expect. • OTHER MERCHANTS are not as well satisfied, but feel mat business will pick up when strikes etc. are not prevalent. IN FACT FOLKS, if you will look around you, you will have to acknowledge that TIPTOtf and TIPTON COUNTY is pretty well blessed with its share of business establishments, factories and farm production. We've never been hit hard by any recessions, etc; and a little more PATIENCE will help in regard to getting back to normal. TAKE A GOOD LOOK at what we have, then look over other cities of comparable, or ever larger size. . .and you will find that we have a lot,of "goodies" not found elsewhere! R T WE HAVE HAD several inquiries regarding the action taken on making one street (Court) 'oneway',. .and some action in regard to solving the problem in the alleyway in the rear of Carter's Supermarket. Also the 'lengthening* of WALKsignalson the local -STOP and GO signs, especially at Main and Jefferson. We have been advised that the first two, the ONE WAY and the ALLEYWAY . .• .will be solved sooife. .the WALK sign lengthening may take longer." This will be done by petitioning the STATE OF INDIANA .and THE HAS been done, according to our information.

The Indiana State Fair Board has voted in favor of constructing a new grandstand in preference to repairing the present 40-fair old structure, j Oren A. Wright of Greenwood, Director of the Grounds Committee, reported to Fair Board ^members that after careful study of engineers reports, the cost of repairing trie present grandstand and remodeling the rest rooms was estimated at $310,000. In addition, the engineering reports also concluded that annual maintenance costs, after repairs, would run from $30,000 to $35,000 a year. J Wright also reported that a new structure, guar-/ anteed to be. virtually maintenance-free, would cost approximately $37.00 to $42.00 per seat including seat backs. The new .structure will contain 14,120 seats and would be set back.18 feet from the track. There will be 46 rows of seats and the front row of seats will be 8 feet above track level thereby giving everyone in the grandstand an excellent sight line for all events. ,,' . The new grandstand will roofed, and will contain new press box facilities. Plans and specifications ar|e now being drawn up so bids can be submitted State Fair! The State Fair Board agreed that a new Grandstand was Today's Almanac ijy United.Press International Today is Monday, Jan, 25, the 25th day of 1971. ."The moon, is new. /.

GERMANY STUDENT CRITICIZES: SEVEN YEARS IN PEN itpTTiiii Washington Capitol perplexed By HENRY CATHCART Central Press Washington Correspondent W ASHINGTON—Midst cries of protest here over the plight of imprisoned Soviet Jews, the cases of youthful American citizens jailed behind the Iron Curtain are going-relatively unnoticed. h •: Examples are numerous, but probably none is more outrageous than the case of* Mark Huessy, a 21-year-old student from Jerico, Vt, who last September was sentenced'to seven years in prison in Communist East Germany. • Hfs crime? Huessy was convicted of "criticizing" the East German government and "trying to convince other persons of his viewpoint" How^Qld he criticize the government? _ According to Communist officials, Huessy told an East German citizen that "if the Soviet .Union withdrew from East Germany, the East German government wouldcollapse." . . 1 The son of a • University of Vermont professor of psychiatry, Huessy went to East Germany to research a paper on Communist Playwright Bertolt Brecht. Huessy's father says his son was "positively impressed" wife aspects of East German life, but he held a steadfast belief that the American system of government is better. He once wrote his parents: "How can jl explain to these people that even though I agree with alltheirjcriti- cism of the American system, the Vietnam war and racism that there is still something about America which gives It more potential than any system I know?" • » * « • NO RADICAIr—Those words' hardly represent xightwlng thought or anti-Communist'bitterness. ' ( In January 1970, only days before he was scheduled to Return home, Huessy was arrested. For eight months he was held behind bars before being charged officially with espionage, trying to help East Germans escape and criticism of the state. He was acquitted of the first two more serious charges, but received the amazing sentence of seven years .for the third. • : There are reports that the East German government now regards .the, severity of the sentence a mistake. There probably will be an appeal and the best East German sources expect that his sentence will be reduced to four years. Huessy's father has reached the end of his patience with'- the . State Department's handling of the case. "We were told to keep quiet by the State Department,}' the elder Huessy said, "but this has not paid off." '••'!'• »•-!»• • LITTLE PROTEST—Where arp the cries of protest over Mark Huessy? Thus far only one group—Young Americans for Freedom—has launched any kind of protest over his imprisonment. At a time when jailed American Communists or campus radicals spark nationwide campaigns, for freedom, Mark Huessy is more or les3 forgotten in this country. State Department officials contend that any pressure applied to the East'German government!for-.the release of Huessy would only hurt his chances for a suspended sentence. But that was ihe same argument that has besn thrown out'the window by the Defense Department in its campaign to free U.S. prisoners of war in North Vietnam. , • It would seem, therefore, that,-immediate action Is needed by U.S. officials here, and around the globe to force the release of this young man, But how can we 1 expect our government to act, if'the American public is unawar^ and unconcerned?
