SECOND-CLASS POST ABE PAID IN TIPTON. IND. ' PUBLISHED DAILY EXCEPT SUNDAY Letter to the Editor: "Farm Program Failure" Dear Sir: The following article from Christian Economics, by Howard E. Kershner, is food for thought for the American farmer. "Farm Program Failure" From the statistical abstract of the United States: 1969, issued by the Bureau of the Census, page 590, we learn that forty years ago 30.5 million Americans were living on 6.5 million farms, averaging 151 acres in size. Thirty years later only .ten million Americans were living on 2.9 million farms, aver* TV Schedule • (Continued from page five) with Mitzi• Goynor. Story of Eva • Tqoguay, the bod girl of Broodway.

During the 40-year period the number of Americans living on farms had declined to one-third of the earlier figure, the number of farms to considerably less than half, while the size of the farms had increased about 150 percent. Meanwhile, government has been spending billions of dollars every year to curtail agricultural production, while the importation of farm products has been increasing. Not many Americans realize = that their country is now the largest food-importing nation in the world. Increasingly our people are becoming dependent upon foreign-produced foodstuffs. , Government management of agriculture has created many millionaire farm operators while it has driven some 20 million people from the farms and has made all of us increasingly dependent for food and fiber upon the operation of foreign farms. Isn't it about time we turned the farms back to the farmers and began once more to produce our own food and fiber? . Robert Phares Tipton, Ind. P.S. If you doubt the above then write your UJS. Congressman and request the catalogue listing large subsidy payments to American farmers. 15 Arrests CUSTOM UPHOLSTERING DO YOU LOVE THAT OLD DILAPIDATED « Chair or Sofa We can make it like NEW again BARKER UPHOLSTERY phone 675-4939 220 E.

(BUT, who also operate a trucking line. "1 didn't think the Ringsbys would pull anything over on me," Haywood says, "but I hated to wait until age 70 before I got a million-five." Some people don't get $1.5- million even in their 90's but that isn't the point. "I found out they were only paying me $490,000 out of the actual contract," Hay w o od says, "and also I had to render service to the truck line for 10 years instead of six years of my contract. In order to receive the other part of my deferred compensation I would have had to render, another 25 years service. That's too much service for any ballplayer. If he's supposed to earn a particular amount of money over six years then I don't feel he should work an additional 125 years for Ringsby Truck Line." Deferred payments are nothing new in sports or in other fields. Neither are contracts that don't always turn out to be exactly what one of the signers thought they were. As a professional athlete Spencer Haywood has one big. argument, namely, he 7 has only a limited time to cash in on his ability. T o do that he has to drive the hardest possible bargain be can. Seattle took over his old contract from Denver so that's still a pretty good bargain for Haywood. Lennie Wilkens, the Supersonics' coach, claims he has a fine attitude. "Right now there is a great deal of pressure on him though,"-Wilkens says. "Every- time we go someplace, someone is talking to him and wanting to know what's going on legally and the like. His attorneys should be involved with that, not him. He should be playing basketball. But everybody still keeps asking him these questions. They.keep bugging him about this and that. The guy never really gets any rest." In the cold hard cash, Haywood had $80,000 due him for the one season he played with Denver. "With Seattle he gets a monthly check for $8,333.33 and' over 12 months that comes out to $100,000. Space that out over 15 years and you come up with $1.5- million. What happens- through if Seattle lets him go next year? Or if the court turns around and rules he can't play withSeattle and that Denver still legally holds his contract?

Tipton County Sheriff Dick Ziegler and County Highway Superintendent Bernard Smith have jointly stated they feel that ail citizens and organizations will cooperate to minimize litteringand officials say they hope the practice of accidental dropping of trash can be completely eliminated. Persons taking trash to the dump in private trucks and vehicles are urged to tied down items or cover, hauling beds to prevent items falling off. Too, all drivers of vehicles hauling trash to dumps are urged to survey road right-of-ways on return from dump and if any trash has fallen from their vehicles to stop and take it from public road. All officials stated that there was a still penalty for littering, whether accidental or not.

(Continued from page one) Last week 72,643 Hoosiers filed for unemployment benefits through the Indiana, Employment Security Division. Another 59,000 were not eligible for such . compensation. Some applied for welfare. The word "welfare" has an ugly ring to the working man and woman. Yet unless there is a reversal in the mounting unemployment trend, welfare will become more and more a household word in a lot of Hoo- , sier homes. Maximum $52 Weekly Currently in . Indiana, the maximum unemployment benefit is $52 a week for 26 weeks for a person with four or more dependents. The bachelor guy or gal gets up to $40 a week for .26 weeks, but the scale slides as low as $10 a week, depending how much a person earned over the one-yaar-period just before applying for benefits. In the case of a non-employed worker with more than four dependents, welfare often is the immediate answer. . John F. Coppes, director of the Indiana Employment Security Division, said, "All unemployment slumps begin the same way. The unskilled and untrained are the first to go. This time is no exception." An addendum to Coppes'com­ ment came from Mrs. Marcile Thornton, manager of division's commercial and professional department. • Hospital News THURS., FEB. 11, 1971 ADMISSIONS: Donald Burns, Tipton;.
