The University Hospitals- are used each year for the clinical educations of more than 3,000 students in medicine, nursing, and the allied health professions. Most of these students stay in Indiana to practice the professions they learned in the University Hospitals. The University Hospitals are the hospitals of last resort for tens .of thousands of Hoosiers who need diagnoses, methods of treatment, and rehabilitation services which are too complex and too difficult to be offered in Indiana's community and county hospitals. * Last year, 71 patients from Tipton County were admitted to the University Hospitals for these specialized services. In all, 15,480 Hoosiers were patients in the four University Hospitals and there were 77,163 visits to the highly specialized but-patient clinics in. the University Hospitals. there were 1,825 babies born in Coleman Hospital for Women.

In South Vietnam, both Communist and Allied forces marked the Tet lunar new year —the Allies with a 24-hour cease-fire; and the Communists with a four-day stand-down. Military spokesmen in Saigon said the Communists violated their own cease-fire at least 30 times in the first 12 hours and seven of the incidents involved American units. Two GIs were wounded. Cambodian High Command spokesman Li. Col. Am Rong 1 said more than 20 government battalions were pushing west and northwest of Phnom Penh and .had retaken a government radar post and a railway station nine miles from the city, causing' "heavy losses, to the enemy." He said "the military situation has improved and the enemy is being pushed out."

This Congress will decide on such issues as: Should the welfare system to guarantee a minimum annual income for the working poor be passed into law? Should legislation be passed which would return a share of federal tax revenues to states and cities, with no strings attached? Should Congress provide a big step-up in funds to develop the supersonic transport? Should Congress impose quotas on imports of textiles, shoes and other products?

There was no. holiday cease-fire in Cambodia. About 15 to 20 American soldiers dressed in civilian clothes moved in Phnom Penh Airport Monday to retrieve two helicopters damaged in the Comm8nist raid, which destroyed some 35 planes at the airport, the U.S. Command in Saigon acknowledged today. The command said the Americans.remained on Cambodian 'soil for about an hour while rigging the damaged choppers for recovery. They arrived and left in three.U.S. Army helicopters. In Phnom Penh, there were fears of a Communist offensive during the three-day Tet holiday which ends Friday. Roadblocks were numerous and traffic was stopped as the strict security precautions hampered movement. Am Rong said Highway 4, opened last week by a joint Cambodian-South Vietnamese push aided by American air support, had been repaired and that military vehicles were moving along it from Phnom Penh to the key seaport of Kompong Som. As yet, he said, no civilian vehicles have made the 150-mile trip. : Northern Community School Building Corporation released the following report of Tri-Central High School: ' • - i • ..' • ' • '. • Bidder WiUsay - Bid $1,020,000.00, payments $965,499.00, unpaid balance $54,501.00; Bidder Hanlin - Bid $384,000.00, payments $374,400.00, unpaid balance $9,600.00; Bidder Hyre •?

Two grade school children can be seen just emerging from apartment doorway onto Jefferson Street sidewalk, heading for school. The zero digit held firm to about 9:30 a.m. when the thermometer grudgingly gave way to one above zero and forecasters predicted about the same temperatures for January 28, so Tipton Water Department Superintendent Ted Sharp reminded citizens to let their water faucets lightly drip through the night to eliminate freezing. (Staff Photo by Eldon Cage) By HORTENSE MYERS INDIANAPOLIS ( U PI) Governor Whitcomb's $115 milr lion program of property tax relief—to be achieved with no sales or income tax hikes—was promised a careful study by the Indiana legislative leaders but with no assurance of final acceptance. Whitcomb's "highly integrated program of property tax tradeoffs" called for doubling the state cigarette tax from 6 cents to 12 cents a pack, and incras- ing the tax on liquor 17 cents a gallon, on wine 17 cents a gallon and on beer slightly less than 4 cents, a gallon. Democratic leaders charged these were "nuisance tax" increases that would not provide adequate property tax relief and some GOP spokesmen showed a tendency to agree with them, although the Republican majority leadership in the House and Senate mainly restrained their criticism until a more, detailed examination of. the governor's Tuesday budget message to the Legislature. Better Investments Possible Whltcomb figured his plat of "genuine property tax relief' actually would amount to $187 Tax Relief nder Study million j from the proposed cigarette tax increase, $7.2 million from the booze hikes and $15 million j from law changes allowing better investment of state funds—to make up the $115.3 million property tax relief through reduction of property taxes yy direct application to the tax bills/ But the governor also included an additional $56 million for state support to schools and $16 million in reimbursement of inheritance'taxes under an old tax case as part of potential properly tax reduction. "I wholeheartedly support property tax relief," Whitcomb said. j "We have 1 studied long and hard to put together a package which would give relief and yell not add to the total tax burden] of the people of Indiana."! : • j ' The j governor's property tax plan Would allocate $25 million as a homestead exemption for persons 65 years of age and older and $90 million as a property tax replacement program. "I propose that the total current Operating cost for local schools be removed from the property -tax levied against the homes| of those persons over 65 years of age for the 1971 assessment, payable in 1972," he said.. "I further propose the state finance 50 per cent of the total current operating cost of schools." Whitcomb said the total cost for the increased support to local schools thus would be $90 -million for the next two years, with the money "to be distributed on a dollar for dollar basis to schools after the local budgets have been finally approved by the State Board of Tax Commissioners." This is a plan similar to a property tax relief distribution plan enaeted in 1967 that expired in 1969. Other Measures Offered "This program will aUow the state to assume 46 per cent of the.current operating costs by next Jan. 1 and a level of 50 per cent state funding of current operating costs by July 1, 1972 ,'ngra 'tcomb said. He urged that the tax relief program be "coupled with other measures," including?\ —A control bill similar to someal eady i trduced. — Statutory restraints onprop- (ConrJnued on page eigni;
