At the sign of the big temperature chartin front of First Federal you get the message.', .exactly zero at 8:011 Not exactly the better way to start the day. , .but as long as the jalope can make it.. you go right aliead.. .park at the Tribune, where you are rewarded by the smiling faces of the crew, much warmer.. .but then, also much younger. • . - . NOW'S THE TIME . NOW IS THE TIME for all of you to 'chip in' with your advise regarding some of the things you would have happen in the City of Tipton. The Chamber 'Hot Line* can be as good as YOU make it. • There is quite a situation at the Drive-In and the banks at certain times. .and certain days. What the answer is.. .may come from SOME LOCAL CITIZEN, who perhaps is very vocal at this time regarding same. . .but not vocal in the right place at the right time. Let the Chamber know.. .maybe the RIGHT answer is yours. We welcome the news of the city going into the matter of the traffic slow-down at the drive-ins and perhaps a few cautions to drivers who still pay no attention to the NO LEFT TURN at the "Drive-In on Jefferson street, where.many near-misses occur at this time, with drivers disregard the sign. Our suggestion would be to place the .sign at a different spot, perhaps to the East, where it may be seen by the oncoming car much sooner than it is at this time; although we have noted LOCAL drivers disregarding the NO LEFT TURN at times! y ; TWO ORDINANCES WE SINCERELY HOPE the two new City Ordinances regarding the One Way street at Court. ..andthe alleyway between Main and West, will be passed without further trouble. We have been looking forward to the action ever since we started ah action in that direction weeks ago. " NOW, if we can get the WALK lights to slow down a little, especially the one at Jefferson and Main, we believe the pedestrian will have an EVEN chance to survive! Thanks to those who are working on the STATE to make the change! THE DAILY OBSERVATION . They used to say that 'things would come to him who waits'... or words to that effect. We wonder what the president may be thinking when he reads and hears that although the presidential campaign is two years away, the campaigners are alreadt AFTER bis job. Must be just a little disconcerning.. .to say the! least.. but then, that's life! ON ONE HAND, here's a guy doing what he believes is his BEST, under the circumstances;. .and he already has two guys after his job, and others in the wings, awaiting a call. Makes a fellow wonder, now doesn't it? Maybe a word with Al Capp, the famous cartoonist would give some light to the matter. Al, as you no doubt may have read, is a former Johnson and Kennedy man. . .but according to reports (although they are from Manchester, England) he is now on Nixon's side. According to Al it was a sort of GRADUAL process, no INSTANT process for him. He didn't just become that way in one day. Maybe he felt that Nixon needed someone on his side.. .who could take a healthy poke at the critics now and then.. .especially the intellectuals, who wouldn't understand Al's strip 'Lil Abner' anyway. AL SAYS the transformation wasn't exactly one he had 'studied on*. . .as he put it. He didn't even vote for the man, be says; yet said also, he was kinda' relieved when Nixon won. Naturally, after that. .his LIBERAL BUDDIES gave him the leper approach . . .Al says he is still campaigning against phonies and fakes, although it is hard to sort out which is which.. .excepting that a real LIBERAL LIBERAL is a dead cinch to be a real swinger... with other people's money. . .and with their government! Nuff said! TODAY'S TIDBITS i • INFLATION or no inflation.. .the cost of living stays about the same.. .ALL YOU CAN MAKE! I ' RT WE READ where the SOVIET UNION held a contest in which people were contesting for. the title of sending in the best POLITICAL anecdote.

Republicans expressed guarded optimism but Democrats were critical of Whitcomb's plan. House Speaker Otis Bowen, R-Bremen, said he was ^"certainly interested" in studying Whitcomb's proposal, and Sen. President Pro Tern Phillip Gutman, R-Fort Wayne, said he felt Whitcomb would do all he could to effect prlperty tax relief and increase state aid to schools. Sen. John Frick, D-South Bend, said the plan would not provide sufficient property tax relief for those under 65. He charged Whitcomb with looking through "rose colored glasses." Rep. Michael K. Phillips, D- BoonviUe, also said the program would not insure property tax relief for all taxpayers. INDIANAPOLIS ( U P I ) Governor Whitcomb, in his budget message to the Legislature Tuesday, proposed that the lawmakers: — Double the state cigarette tax from 6 to 12 cents a pack, and increase the tax on liquor 17 cents per gallon, on wine 17 a gallon and on beer slightly less than 4 cents a gallon. — Impose a tax of at least four cents on each container sold on a non-return basis as an effort to curb pollution. —Impose a surtax on the unemployment contributions paid by employers that would average .3 per cent, and bring in an estimated $20 million a biennium to be used for establishment of a revolving fund for loans to persons wanting vocational or trade training. — Bring Indiana into compliance with the; federal welfare fund requirements so as to avert a scheduled cutoff of all federal funds for. this purpose, set for April 1. The governor proposed an increase- of.$7.8 million of which $6.8 million would be used to increase the aid to mothers with dependent children. This would mean a maximum $115 a month for a mother and, one child, compared to the present $100. — Impose sewer user charges totaling $20 million for the next two years that would be used to enable, local communities to complete long-delayed sewei construction. This charge woulc amount to an average of 5C cents extra on the water bill of the average household. Whitcomb said this $20 million, plus a $5 million general fund appropriation and $50 million matching federal funds available to the state would "advance the sewer construction program so vital to cleaning up our streams and rivers." • — Pay to the 91 counties, Marion County excepted, a total of $16.5 million representing t h e 'amount of inheritance tax they would have received in 1967-69 under a 1967 pocket-vetoed bill that was revived when the Indiana Appellate Court ruled pocket vetoes unconstitutional. Marion County, whose officials started the suit, already has collected $12.7 million. — Establish a port on the Ohio •River, with a $6 million appropriation to the Indiana Port Commission, of which federal reimbursement is calculated to amount to $3.6 million. — Implement a statewide me- TWO MATCHES NEW YORK (UPI>_Two world light heavyweight title matches are scheduled for next month, with Bob Foster defending bis crown against Hal dical education system by appropriating $4.5 million in state funds to start on training centers in Evansville, Terre Haute, Lafayette, Lake County, South Bend, Fort Wayne and Muncie.' At present future doctors are trained only at the Indiana University Medical Center here. — Create a. Commission for Higher . Education serving all state universities and colleges, both independent and public; increase the tax support to higher education by $75 million to bring the biennial state support to $405 million, and raise the state scholarship fund from $6.7 million to $15 million. — Increase the appropriation for mental health by $18 million as already proposed by the State Budget Committee, and add about nine more local mental health centers. . — Establish additional work release programs for the Indiana Department' of Correction at Fort Wayne, Gary and South Bend and a new youth camp in the Yellowwood State Forest, •plus expansion of a foster home program for delinquent youths. Sen. John Frick, Drouth Bend, charged the governor with "playing the siame record" and looking through "rose- colored glasses" regarding tax relief. "The real issue that we're concerned with," said. Frick, is that the budget message did not "sufficiently provide property tax relief for other than those over 65." Sen. Phillip Gutman, R-Fort Wayne, said the governor would do all he could to keep .his promise "of at least 50 per cent state funding of the school formula insofar as to bring about property tax relief." Bowen, Gutman, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Lawrence Borst, R-Indiahapolis, and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Samuel Rea, R-Fort Wayne, said the governor's proposal was to achieve 50 per cent funding of. school operating costs by the end of the biennium. Rep. Michael K. Phillips, D- Boonville, criticized Governor Whitcomb's proposals for doubling the cigarette tax, increasing, taxes on alcoholic beverages, taxing non-disposable containers and a sewer usage charge. Calling them regressive "nuisance" taxes, Phillips said: "I'm not so sure there was any program.that would insure relief for all the taxpayers of the state of Indiana." Bowen and Gutman enumerated several gubernatorial proposals they liked. Bowen applauded: — Sending inheritance tax rev* 3,000 Respond (Continued from page one) Bank; Farmers Loan & Trust Bank; Steel Parts; Pioneer Corn Co.; Anixter-Murray Company; John Bean Company; Stokley-VanCamp; State Highway Employees; also the churches of Tipton proper and Windfall, Kempton, Hobbs and Sharpsville. The committee reported excellent cooperation from persons volunteering to cover the signature locations, including teenagers who were definitely interested in the program. Since all the form letters have not been returned, there will be another mailing and Mrs. Amsbury, Mrs. Kincaid and Mrs. Adler will continue to accept the forms. The Board of Directors, Tipton-Howard Chapter American Red Cross congratulates all those who assisted in making the "Write Hanoi" campaign a success in Tipton, ehues back to the counties. — Expanding the medical education program. — Boosting the vocational education program through establishment of a revolving fund. — Working toward a port on the Ohio River. ) Gutman praised the governor for assuring the. state that federal welfare funds, would not be cut off because of the aid to dependent children program as long as the current legislature increases payments, and for urging drug abuse control. j Frick and Phillips, who met with newsmen after a House Democratic caucus, were not accompanied by party leadership, j'. •Comprehensive (Continued from page one) | • •' ''.-'•!• ies; consultation-education; and hospitalization. j Tipton County was asked, to make two committments in the use of the Center: to be willing to underwrite the payment pro- ratio of any deficeint and to financially participate in any future additions of construction of the Center. Dr. Bowman explained that when the Center was first being considered for construction in Howard County, the Federal government had promised money for construction and staffing of the center. However, the promise was not fulfilled. The State Government then agreed to pay. 55 percent of the cost with Howard County paying 45 percent There is presently a bill before the General Assembly which will allow the State to pick-up any deficient as long as each participating county does it's fair share. Means of revenue for financing the Center will be from Cigarette Tax and assessment of four cents per $100 of personal property. Dr. Bowman also stated that the cost of operation of the Center would be by third party insurance companies, county support and • state support. He estimated the cost the first two years would be approximately $800,000. j He has made a request for a Federal Grant in the amount of $400,000. • Each county would be assessed the same amount each year. He stated'that Tipton County, would-be assessed $16,000 per year with Howard County paying $75,000; Clinton County $27,000 and the State paying $120,000. Having Trouble With Taxes!

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 27, 1971 Nationally, an average of 34 per cent of the o aerating budgets of state university hospitals is provided liy legislative appropriations, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges. The statistics cf services to Hoosiers from tie University Hospitals goes on: ^ There were 221 visits to the Riley Hospital out-patient clinics by childrei, from Tipton County. . ••' Occupational the rapy was provided for 2,602 Hoosiers in the University Hospitals and physical therapy was given to 12,576. Various social services were provided by the University Hos-. pitals for 13,625 patients. Many of these services --diagnostic, therapeutic, rehabilitative, social ~ are not available in any other Hoosier hospital. there are, for example, very specialized clinics in problems of growth, glaucoma, allergies, endocrine problems, medical genetics, cystic fibrosis, cere-*; bral palsy, epilepsy, club feet, and cleft palate. J There are more, than 60 of these clinics meeting regularly just for the young patients who come to Riley Hospital from all parts of Indiana, f Some of these ^clinics are organized for problems which are so rare that similar clinics could not be . organizecj effectively or economically elsewhere in Indiana. A special Iclinic for problems of the retina was maintained for fewer than 50 patients from all parts of Indiana, for example. . J i Other clinics have heavy use, "but require such a diverse range ; of medical specialities that 'Similar clinics could not be organized in other Hoosier communities. .As an example J there were 894 visits to the'medical diagnostic clinic maintained in Long Hospital for the diagnosis of very rare or. complex problems. This clinic is supported by physicians specializing in hormones, nerves, blood chemistry,) endocrinology, genetics/ cardiology, metabolism, and a score of other specialties. The array of these specialists can be found only at major national medical centers, such as the Medical Center of Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis.
