Hendricks called the first meeting of the GOP State Committee under the new regime for next Tuesday and announced he would not run for governor. He said he has not yet decided whether Indianapolis insurance executive John Burk- tart would be retained as chairman of the GOP Finance Committee. As for Hoosier Democrats, lendricks said "the glamour of "overnor Branigin won't last." "He has tried to pose as a conservative, but he has not succeeded in that role," he said. Asked by newsmen for his reaction to the GOP drubbing at :he polls last year, he said he relieved the assassination of President Kennedy "aroused such public sympathy that the Democrats won." Streetlight Sales Event Set July 2 Several events of interest to the Greensburg business community ,were discussed at the regular Tuesday morning meeting of the steering committee of the Greensburg Promotional Association. Robert Rust, chairman of the association, urged all members of the committee and other merchants to attend the Rural-Urban Relations meeting at the YMCA Wednesday. The meeting, which will include representatives from 20 counties, will be held from 9 a. m. to 3 p. m., with a Dutch treat luncheon at noon. Although luncheon reservations have closed, businessmen, as well as the general public from city and rural areas, are invited to attend all or any part of the session, Rust pointed out. Initial plans were made for a sales event marking the completion of the installation of the new downtown streetlights in Greensburg. This event, as yet unnamed, will be held Friday night, July 2, from 5 to 10 p. m. Since it is an added attraction, and not a part of the Greensburg Promotional Association's stated program, this promotion will be handled by local advertising media. Rust said. The possibility of purchasing and installing a permanent public address system on the public square was brought up by Al T. Page, and Herb Scheidler was appointed to assist Page in obtaining necessary information on feasibility. Frank Marshall, secretary of the group, announced that letters and membership forms for the new fiscal year have been prepared and will be mailed to local merchants within the next few days. Rust explained that although a strong promotional program has been planned for the new year, beginning July 1, the total budget has been reduced, making each participating merchant's assessment lower than before.

Weather Bureau Monday, excluding Alaska and Hawaii, was 110 at Presidio, Tex. The lowest reported this morning was 30 at Marquette County Airport, Mich. CHICAGO (UPI)—A posse of irate mothers, determined d9g- catchers and city building inspectors prowled a South Side neighborhood today for a pack of half-wild cats that has run amok. The dogcatchers were a bit out of their league, but the bleary - eyed mothers weren't. They have been locked in a two-month battle against the nasty cats, complete with night patrols. "I'm 38, I look 45 and I feel 60," said Mrs. Ruth Hlavaty, a leader of the posse. "Those cats are smart." Mrs. Hlavaty said she and 50 other mothers in the area mailed a petition to the city fathers two months ago, asking for a crackdown on the cats. Until last Wednesday, the mothers had nothing to show for their petition except a telephone call from a sympathetic city employe. More Troops Moving to Viet Area WASHINGTON (UPI) — Administration officials have confirmed continuing movements of U. S. troops to South Viet Nam, but have given no indication how many men are involved or what type of units they comprise. The Defense Department today declined comment on reports that portions of the 1st Infantry Division at Ft. Riley, Kan., the llth Air Assault .Division at Ft. Benning, Ga., and the 25th Infantry Division at Schofield Barracks, Hawaii, had been alerted for possible duty in South Viet Nam. There are now about 53,500 Army, Navy, Marine and Air Force personnel in South Viet Nam. This is about twice the number of men there when the first Marine combat units landed in March. In March it was estimated that U. S. forces in Viet Nam might reach 40,00 to 50,000 by midsummer. This figure has already been exceeded. Three Charged In School "Bombing" INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) — Authorities said today three youths have been charged with unlawful use of explosives in a "bombing" at Wood High School. They said the three teen-agers admitted setting off a huge firecracker shortly after graduation exercises last week. The blast damaged a door and shattered some windows in the building. Two of the youths were turned over to juvenile authorities and the other was slated for a Municipal Court appearance. STUDENT CENSUS Number of students in India is about 26 million. black magic...

SHOES FOR ALL THE FAMILY As Advertised In SEVENTEEN MADEMOISELLE GLAMOUR LEADER SHOE STORE W. SIDE SQUARE Then 2-year-old Richard Dickover was bitten by one of the cats. He is now undergoing a painful series of 14 shots required to make him immune to rabies. The mothers decided it was time to stop pussyfooting around. The mothers took action and formed a pussycat posse. They roamed the pleasant neighborhood at night, trying to capture the cat that had bitten little Richard. Their husbands stayed up and babysat. House - to - house, hedge-to- hedge fighting—all between one a.m. and 5—yielded about nine cats. It wasn't easy. "This hunt is not making a hit with our neighbors," Mrs. Hlavaty said. "The '. neighborhood is under tension. There is bickering and quarreling. We never had any of that before. .." 720-Passenger Russ Airliner Displayed PARIS (UPI) — The Soviet Union electrified the Paris International Air Show today by displaying a huge, new airliner believed to be the world's largest plane. The Russian designer of the plane, the Antonov 22, said it will be capable of cutting air fares drastically by carrying 720 passengers. The silver and white turboprop giant, with two stabilizers on the tail, flew over the air show for 30 minutes before zipping in for a landing. It has four engines. The stands at the show emptied as crowds rushed to get a better view of the craft as it taxied to a halt. The designer, Oleg Antonov, said the plane which landed here was the cargo version. But he said the double-decker passenger version of the same plane would be able to carry 720 passengers. •Antonov said Russia will be willing to sell the huge plane to the West after it is put into full production in two years or more. Tire Erasers SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) —San Francisco city supervisor Terry Francois is out to get motorists who rub off the chalk marks police make on their tires to catch overtime parkers. He proposed a law Monday that would make the penalty for erasing the marks five days in jail or a $50 fine. Classified Ad Phone 663-3113 Expectant Mother Drowns By United Press International At least two persons, .including an expectant mother, drowned in Indiana Monday, following a rash of water accidents during the weekend. Madison County Coroner Cecil Carmichael ruled the death of Pat Neeley, 39, Pendleton, an expectant mother of six, accidental Monday when the woman's body was recovered from a gravel-pit northeast of Anderson. A search for the woman began after authorities found her car parked near the pit and a hairnet floating in the water. Earlier, 5-year-old John Timothy Langlais drowned in a neighbor's private swimming pool at Kokomo. Police said the boy's aunt, Patricia Gallagher, raced to the Delbert Miller residence when Johnny's brother, Lawrence, 4, ran home yelling the boy had fallen into the pool. The aunt jumped into the water and pulled the boy to the surface, but her attempts to revive him failed. Authorities said the pool was fenced and that the boys apparently did not have permission to play near it. . Childress (Continued from Page One) for 15 scientists.

You, Your Child and School- Gifted May Present Difficult Problems By DAVID NYDICK UPI Education Specialist Children with unusually high academic ability often need special attention in order to fully develop their talents. Although much recent attention has been directed toward the disadvantaged students, it is always important to provide proper programs for children with all levels of ability and background. Gifted children, may present some difficult problems. Since they learn very quickly and are extremely curious, they might become bored' or restless. At home, they may be spoiled and hard to understand. In school, teachers may find that they are becoming careless and developing undesirable behavior. Develop Programs Schools have developed a variety of programs for these children. The approach ranges from advancing the child's grade level (skipping) to ar-. ranging special classes either full or part time. Sometimes schools attempt to work with such students in the regular classroom and to challenge them with extra assignments. Regardless of the school's approach, parents should be prepared to supply a home environment which is interesting and encouraging. Careful attention should be given to the child's social development. It is natural for you, as parents, to take pride in your child's ability and achievements. Don't push him beyond his capabilities for your own satisfaction. Do recognize his needs if he is in this highly gifted group. There is no exact measurement to identify a gifted child. Good indications are possible. I.Q. which is a measure of intelligence is important. The school may not permit this. . An IQ score of about 130 or above probably means high ability. Next, you might look at achievement. Is the child doing very well in school or is he having difficulty? This refers to the ease with which he learns, not his behavior. Does the child have a vivid imagination? As the truly gifted child develops,-; he should be able to analyze his? work in great depth. He will- probably be able to perform; school tasks with a great deal! of understanding. All of these indications must;, be considered in relation to the; child's age. If his ability is in doubt, you can have him tested and obtain advice from a psy-: chologist or other specialist. Expert judgment should be sought if there appears to be a contra-;diction between ability and per-f' formance. ' -\ The child must learn to .live'-. with others. Permit him to be-: a child and to have fun. He should have respect for others if. they are to be his friends. His; gift should not only be directed; toward his own satisfaction but also toward the responsibility he? has to society. :• Westport Driver Is ^ Involved in Crash } COLUMBUS, Ind. — Two cars meeting on a county road at Burnsville about 12:45 p. im Sunday, skidded to miss one an^ other, but were unable to do so- Major damage resulted. £ The accident took place ori Road 200S at Burnsville.
