The primary objective is water conservation and flood control. . , Closely akin to this objective is economic development on a county level. But, the initial step is development of the water resources of a community. This is essential for any county which aspires to attract industry and afford employment. The status of the water supply in a.county forms one of the first matters which an industry studies. While Decatur County does not have large streams, there are a number of possibilities that are still untapped. With water resources comes opportunity for recreational development, which can become an important source of income. A county does not have to possess large bodies of water to develop attractive places for recreation. .... Development of an area concept is also important. Existence of important bodies of water within a. radius of 100 miles or so can be an asset to a community. One of the current projects in which the Wabash Valley Association is keenly interested is the Clifty Creek Reservoir near Hartsville, a part of which is in Decatur County. This would mean an attractive lake within less than 15 miles from Greensburg and closer to the western section of Decatur County. Steps are being taken to determine the feasibility of a reservoir on Flat Rock, north of Interstate 74 in Decatur County. The Wabash Valley Association, Inc. seeks ultimate complete control of water and land resources of the Wabash Valley Watershed. As pointed out here Wednesday night by George D. Gettinger, executive vice-president of the two-state association, control of tributaries upstream forms an important phase of the association's program. A countywide association of this character can also assist in promoting the development of Decatur County. New problems are arising that require concerted action. They cannot be solved by rural groups nor by city organizations. A countywide organization can render a definite service from which the entire county can benefit. ' Gettinger stated that signing membership cards without resultant local activity will not result in Decatur ...County progress. .. . However, if the Decatur County Chapter is as active as many Wabash Valley Chapters, much can be accomplished. The new Wabash Valley Association Chapter in Decatur County can serve as the vehicle for future community betterment on a countywide scale. News in Brief WASHINGTON (UPI) — Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, D-N. Y., avoiding direct reference to the assassination of his brother, today urged immediate approval of a gun control bill to save lives and "spare thousands of families" grief and heartbreak.' The former attorney general, brother of the late President John F. Kennedy, charged that a "massive publicity campaign" against the legislation had distorted its purpose and was "doing the nation a great disservice." to create five committees to "study various aspects of teacher life." Biarney (Continued from Page One) himself still looking when the interview is .over. With one of his many numerous .stories, to put across his point, the speaker pointed to the ae'ed of cpoperation. Competition in tjie,,world t today is keen and no man can attain success without the cooperation of others, he said. Cooperation should start in the tiome and become a habit in life, tne Crawfordsville principal insisted. It is such inborn habits as enthusiasm,, cooperation and honor that reflect the true individual in his everyday actions and words, he asserted. Gentry urged the graduates to develop the habit of saying the right things. By developing the right habits one finds himself on the right track to success doing what comes naturally, he added. "Today is the day you find] yourself on your own—don't falter, do something about it and make sure you take the right step. Tomorrow will be no different unless you do something about it today," he stated. The speaker, continued by saying: "It's up to you to let your light so shine that others can see it—so let it shine." God As Partner We live in America, which is a great country because she is good. When she ceases to be good, she will cease to be great," he said. To the graduates he stated: I hope every one of you will find it in your heart to take God as your partner as He will watch over you every day. Live by the Golden Rule and never be in the position where you will have to say 'I cheated myself." In conclusion he expressed the hope that every graduate will love the right things, continue to learn, say the right tilings and take God as his partner. Gentry, who spoke often of his past experiences as a basketball official, was introduced by Roger Miers, a member of the graduating class. In her address as salutatorian of the class, Miss Mary Ann Johnson thanked the • parents and teachers for then- guidance and concern and expressed the hope that all the graduates will be able to show a return on the investment by being responsible citizens in the world of tomorrow. Valedictorian Speaks Bruce Corya, class valedictorian, spoke of memories of the past 12 years marked by the useful , •encouragement f r o m teachers and parents. He reviewed the position held by the United States in comparison to the rest of. the, world ^and : emphasized-'that .''it is imperative that we do iiot' cease to learn if America is to maintain its standing with , the rest of the world!" In conclusion he said: "We must ,use our education wisely because that with which we are endowed is a responsibility that can be achieved only through responsible living, understanding and participation." Randall Ervin,. class sponsor, announced the following award recipients: The valedictorian award • and a phi for maintaining a straight "A" average to Corya; the salutatorian award to Miss Mary Ann Johnson; the Readers Digest award, Bruce Corya; a pin for outstanding achievement in the field of English to' Miss Virginia Kiefer; certificates of honor from the Ralston Purina Company to Corya and Miss Mary Ann Johnson; a state and residence scholarship to Indiana University, Miss Kiefer; an honor merit scholarship to Purdue University, Corya; citizenship pins to Corya and Miss Mary Ann Johnson; and the Gerel E. Gibson award in memory of a Burney graduate who lost his life on Saipan in June, 1944,, to Winn Ison. Recipient of the latter award is determined on the basis of athletic achievements and cooperative attitude. Principal Forrester Ison, in his presentation of the class, told the audience of more than 40C persons that "members of this graduating class have a purpose, know where they're going and will get there." Presents Diplomas Before presenting the diplomas, Donald Hayes, superintendent of the county schools corporation, offered his congratulations to the graduates and to the parents and teachers for what he termed "their part in turning out this fine class ol graduates." He suggested the graduates will find their education much more meaningful if they will keep in mind an imaginary triangle formed by love of self, love of country and love of God. Mrs. Vey Hitchcock, organist presented the prelude, processional, recessional and accompaniment for Mrs. Calvin Hitchell, who sang "You'll Never Walk Alone" and "Till We Mee' Again." The graduates—boys wearing light blue caps and gowns and the girls, white caps and gown; Three Seeking Presbyterians' Highest Office COLUMBUS, Ohio -(UPI)—A successor to the first Negro ever x> hold the highest office in the United Presbyterian Church U. 3.

A search party found: one dfead guerrilla and a wounded man who was captured. The Air Force F105 Thunder- chiefs dropped their leaflets over Ninh' Binh, 55 miles south of Hanoi.. . ... They appealed to North Vietnamese, soldiers: "Our brothers—don't let the Chinese arid Vietnamese Communists use your bones and blood to wage the war., in .the south." The Communists charged that the planes came much closer to Hanoi. Tass, the. official Soviet news agency, said U.S: reconnaissance planes led by 12 jet fighter-bombers came within 12 mfles of Hanoi. The Tass dispatch, datelined Hanoi, said North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gunners opened fire. It mad'e no mention of hits. An American spokesman reporting the leaflet raid said other U.S. planes bombed military targets farther south of Hanoi, including an ammunition depot, railroad bridges and rolling stock and an offshore radar station. The leaflet raid near Hanoi was part of the continuing American effort to bring the Hanoi regime to the conference table for a negotiated settlement of the Viet Nam war. The daylight missions followed a ,pre-dawn strike in which four U.S. Navy jets raided a North Vietnamese truck convoy with a barrage of rockets fired under the light of parachute flares.
