White A "SECOND INCOME" from "moonlighting," the holding of a part-time job in addition to the regular one, or from investmen earnings, interest or employment, of the wife, is becoming a way of life for Hoosiers both in rural and urban areas. U. S. Census Bureau studies for 1963 showed 48 out of each 100 Hoosier families depended upon the "second income" to supplement regular job pay.

MAKING THE ROUNDS is a story to the effect that a man said, "I wish they would quit putting mirrors on cigarette vending machines for I hate to come face to face with a weak individual every time I buy a package of cigarettes." Indiana University has "driven another nail" into the coffin of smoking. I. U. Medical Center researchers bicycled their way to prove lung activity quickly improves when a person stops smoking. The experiment under direction of Drs. Joseph C. Ross, R. A. Krumholz and R. B. Chevalier measured the oxygen intake of lungs. Involved were 10 doctors and medical technicians, ages 25 to 33, who had smoked more than a package of cigarettes a day for five year or more. -_ THE STATIONARY bicycl peddling device showed afte three weeks of non-smoking lun expiratory capacity increased Those giving up smoking found lung functions continued to im _ prove. Lung conditions were fount quite reversible among youn; smokers as they abstained from smoking or continued. The re search was financed by th American Medical Association with grants from tobacco funds VohMlXXI SOUTHEASTERN INDIANA'S GREATEST NEWSPAPER , May 18,1965 UNITED PRESS INTERNATIONAL Per copy, 10<; carrier, 45< week ISMM No. 118 Chance of Strong Winds Cooler Weather Due Here After Storms By United Press International •Some locally heavy thunderstorms with gusty winds wer forecast as a possibility today for most parts of Indiana.

IT HAS BEEN MY high honor to be made a Kentucky Colonel and a -Sagamore of the Wabash an Indiana honor. Contrary to belief, the members of the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels do not just sip mint juleps on race day and go home. The order has a working purpose that has not yet been achieved by the Hoosier Sagamore of the Wabash award. Kentucky Colonels provided the cash for a new Radiation Center in Louisville. With Ann Friedman' the secretary, it has given $60,000 in Kentucky Colonel Chain of Good Will to orphan's homes and other worthy charitable groups. LEADING MEDICAL authori ties know that the insistence of thousands of parents upon a child having a "clean plate" is not only brutal but senseless as well. The psychological damage to the child by such insistence is greater than the physical benefits. DOCTORS KNOW WHEN a child is hungry he will eat. That is nature's way. Trying to force a child to swallow food he doesn't want is to set yourself up as a better judge than nature. How would a bossy mother or father like to have a quantity of food set before him and be forced to eat same, or be whipped? It is common sense to tell a child to eat his dinner before getting a dessert. Sweet foods kill the appetite, hence desserts come last. GOVERNMENT IS big and getting bigger as we demand more and more from government. Taxes and other governmental levies take 38 per cent of the total national income. One out of six workers in the U. S. A., excluding farm hands, is a government employe. One out of each $5 spent for goods and services is spent by government. Federal grants of taxpayers' funds to state and local governments now total $13.6 billion.

EATON WASHINGTON (UPI)—President Johnson redeemed a pledge to organized labor today by asking Congress to scrap "right to work" laws banning the union shop .in 19 states.

N The President carefully avoided a direct endorsement of AFL-CIO demands for raising the minimum wage to $2 an hour. Johnson did say the only questions about increasing the present $1.25 minimum rate were" "when" and "how much," and referred the matter, to" congress. Johnson rejected proposals for legislation to shorten the standard 40-hour week, but directed the new^ national commission on technology, automa- tion and economic progress to study that issue.
