"There is no place else you can live except this' planet," Schirra told the lawmakers. He recalled the fate of prehistoric animals that disappeared from earth because their changed environment became fatal to them and said: "We are a specie of animal." Whitcomb and Schirra also officiated at the opening of an exhibit hall across the street from the ,Statehouse featuring demonstrations by state agencies and industry of ways in which pollution is being prevented or abated. "Educational; Tool" At a news conference in the exhibit, sponsored by a private • sector group called Indiana Environmental Quality Control, Inc., Schirra said he hoped the display— the first of its type— ''will be an educational tool" to be used against pollution "instead of panicking." Whitcomb said he hoped as many as 50,000 high school students who visit the Legislature, as well as the general public, will stop by the exhibit to see what efforts already are being, made to monitor water and air by the state, and preventive equipment and techniques used by industry to reduce pollution. Although not a formal part of the news conference, considerable discussion occurred among industry representatives about one • of the: proposals in Whitcomb's massage to the joint session of the" Legislature Tuesday to assess a four-cent tax on non-returnable, non-disinte-- grating bottles and containers, estimated to produce $19 million in the next biennium. Some objectors -said this would even penalize babies by adding the tax to baby food containers. Robert Patoff, litter and education manager for Owens-Illinois Glass Co. said "if you legislate i us out of business, you still got garbage." Patoff said glass containers represent only 6 per cent, of the garbage discarded by Americans and a •glass packing cycle has been started that should return used -glass containers to some purpose that could range from insulation to bricks. Patoff suggested that eventually Americans may start "min­ ing'' their old dumps and landfills, to recover glass and metal fragments. Late Sessions Both the House and Senate held rather brief late-afternoon sessions following the address by Schirra. The Senate action included passage of a bill, 44-2 that would block'a deed for sale of property from being recorded until after any taxes due had been determined. The Senate also advanced 10 bills to third reading, including one to permit $1,000 exemption on assessed valuation of property for homes of persons 65 years of age and older incases in which the assessment is not more than $7,500 (a house with a market value of $22,500) and if the family income is not more than $7,500 annually.

He noted complications in k> cal government funding could , arise because local government employes continually push for increased salaries. He said control bills that curb increases in property tax for local government funding could be offset by the bill being drafted. But he admitted methods of administering the tax would pose problems. . "~~ Seifert and Ivan Brihegar, executive director of the association, said the pollution section of the governor's budget message did not meet needs of the state. Seifert said approximately $31 million was needed as the state's share and only $5 million was requested, "The sewer tax will not help," said Seifert. "Only by . massive infusion of funds'' can governments stop, watdr pollution, he said. He called the sewer tax "not a users' tax, but. a 'tax on users" who must pay for water treatment services built in other localities. Would Sue Polluters . Polluters of air, water and land could be sued by any governmental unit or any citizen under terms of a bill introduced, in the Senate Wednesday. -. The measure was authored by Senate President Pro Tem Phillip Gutman, R-Fort Wayne. The bill would be known as the Natural Resource Conservation and Environmental Protection THURSDAY, JANUARY 28. 1971 Pictured above are charter members of Tipton Kiwanis Club.

It now' is eligible for passage. Among seven bills passed by the Indiana House Wednesday and sent to the Senate were three measures to regulate automobile and other types of insurance. One measure would regulate insurance holding companies and protect Hoosier investors. It was recommended to state legislatures for passage by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners; Reps. William E. Lapar, R-Winchester, and Nelson D. Kennedy, D-Pal- "myra sponsored the bill, which passed the House 94-Q. Another, insurance measure would increase amounts required from Hoosier motorists as proof of financial responsibility and a third would do the same for motor vehicle dealers regarding garage liability insurance. Both passed by votes of 91-4. Another measure passed the House, 88-3, and would require bonding of each oil or non-potable water well drilled in Indiana to insure against pollution. , The bond would be forfeited by the company drilling the well if it was not plugged upon completion of the well's use. Other billsclearingtheHouse would: — Make Limestone the official state stone.

Act, if it became law. Under its terms, the Indiana attorney general, any city, town or citizen, could file a suit against any other person, including a governmental unit, in the name of the state. The court in which the suit was filed, could, if a prima facie showing of pollution danger was made, appoint a master or referee to investigate and make a report. Such master or referee would need to be a person technically qualified to dtermine pollution. The minimum age at which a person legally can make a will would be lowered from 21 to 19 under terms of a bill introduced by Sen. John M. Ryan, R- Indianapolis. Permit Bond Issues The State Office Building Commission would have authority to construct additional government buildings under terms of a new Senate bill. . The measure, authored by Sens. Eugene Bainbridge, D- Munster, and Walter Helmke, R -Fort' Wayne,,' would give the commission, • created by a 1953 law to build the State Office Building, additional powers to plan and construct other state; governmental buildings. j The commission would have the authority to issue bonds to pay for additional buildings, as was done in the case of the State Office Building. One building frequently discussed for future construction has been a structure to house the Indiana Supreme and Appellate Courts. Another bill \ could increase unemployment compensation by several million; dollars, if'it became law. j " The measure, introduced by Sen. Charles E... Bosma, R- Beech -Grove, ] would increase the maximum: weekly unemployment pay from $40 for a single! person to $52, from $43 for a jobless wage warner with one dependent to $56, from $46 to $60 with two dependents, $49 to $64 if three dependents, and from $52 to $64 if four or more dependents. ° Compliance j Would Result The! bill would bring Indiana into compliance with federal standards and would increase the-number of persons who can qualify for jobless pay by as many I as 160,000.

Since the 1950's, however, tne so-called fishing war has been an j irritant in the relations between the United States and its Latin American neighbor. It began taking on proportions of. a major irritant this year when Ecuador, alone levied fines against U.S. fishing boats' * Road Crews (Continued from page one) 1 .1-inch fall raised that to 1.8 inches for the season. 'One-inch measurements also were.-. recorded at Lafayette, Cincinnati and other points. Evansville and Fort Wayne had . a trace. South Bend, which has had its share of snow this season, as usual, still has seven inches on the ground. Monroe Reservoir had four inches, Columbus measured 3, inches, and 2-ihch falls were recorded at Monticello, Crawfordsville, Shoals and Austin. The first general snow of the season slicked roads and streets .from Lake Michigan to the Ohio River. There was a chance of light snow again Friday. Temperatures skidded again during the night after reaching highs Wednesday ranging from 12 above at Fort Wayne and South Bend to 23 at Evansville.

Twice each year. North American fishing boats, take off from-their California ports in hot pursuit of a' catch that annually comes to around 200,000 tons, most of it taken by the California boats. In 1947, Chile proclaimed a 200-raile limit 1 to protect what it ' regarded as j - a national resource. It soon was joined by Peru and Ecuador. Today,.nine Latin American nations claim the 200-miie limit. • •'•(.-; . As Jmucti as a need to define international fishing limits, the dispute points up the need for international authority over all ocean resources. As of today there ment the is no international agree- except that reached by United Nations last year banning weapons of mass destruction from the ocean floor. .•••!".' • i ! The United States recognizes a three-mile territorial offshore limit, but has negotiated fishing agreements with the Soviet Union and Japan for up to 12 miles.. (Question not Defined; The question of a nation's rights to mineral riches on its continental shelf never has been' clearly defined. President Truman in 1945 claimed the natural resources of the "Continental Shelf' off American coasts for exclusive United States "jurisdiction and control." In 1958, the Truman principle was accepted at a Geneva convention. But a continental shelf may extend from several miles to several * hundred miles off the mainland. Some j nations have no: continental shelf at all. Ecuador and Peru are among therm,.
