HA: BURTON .ARCHIVES ASSISTANT I3DIANA STATS LIBRARY INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA Farmers Warned Of Falsely Labeled Seed By' BERNARD BRENNER WASHINGTON (UPI) - Federal officials are checking ,! reports that some salesmen are ^ peddling falsely, labeled seed, corn in an effort to profit from corn blight fears, an Agriculture Department official said today. The action came as farmers, afraid of, another disastrous outbreak of corn blight this year, scramble in many .parts "of the country for a limited supply of ; blight-resistant seed. Nobody knows for certain r whether, the blight will be as •serious this year as it was in 1970 when it combined with drought to cut the crop 15 per cent between midsummer and harvest. It could be more severe, some, experts say; but others contend it could:be less serious or' about the same. Right now, one Agriculture Department official said last week, it's.too early to tell. The final answer will have hefty dollars-and-cents significance for consumers, because another short corn crop would (Continued on page eight)' • Noted Author Conducts Workshop at St. Joseph Sheriff Reports Break - ins r Tipton County Sheriff Richard Ziegler, deputies and other area enforcement officers were investigating at-least three building breakins over.

Senators, in passing a bill to permit sale of alcoholic beverages at Monroe State Reservoir and operation of this and other reservoir facilities by private contractors on 40-year leases, mentioned several times that they would be back next year to make further changes if the test.of the new approach showed it to be unwise. The measure passed the Senate 26-23, with only the minimum number of votes required. It passed the House earlier 62-33. This is the 38th working day of a first annual session in 120 . years and several major bills- including the budget—are moving toward final decisions. House Speaker Otis Bowen said he hopes the House can meet as -a., committee of the whole "the first of next week" to pass a biennial budget. Returns to House The Monroe Reservoir measure must return to the House for • concurrence in Senate amendments. As it left the House, it would have permitted construction and operation of motels, inns and other facilities on land, owned by the federal government and leased by the state, surrounding flood control reservoirs built by the U. S. Corps of Engineers. However, the Senate reduced the bill to its immediate application of a 124-room Holiday Inn motel for which a tentative contract lias been drawn. The motel and restaurant would be located on the reservoir. Senators argued for about 90 minutes on the liquor issue. Sen. Robert Mahowald, D- . South Bend, told the senators that they should know alcoholic beverages now are being consumed illegally, in reservoir areas and state parks. He said^ thethe "hypocrisy of oiir generation," about which the younger generation protests,. is demonstrated by the fact that.organi­ zations opposing the legal sale of alcoholic beverages in a state recreational area bring in their own liquor for conventions. : Sen. Robert Orr,. R-Evansville, stressed that lodging and food facilities in some national parks such as Yellowstone were developed by private corporations and that alcoholic bever- . ages are sold with food. He said when he visited Monroe Reservoir he found the recreational, areas "littered by beer cans" and argued in favor of legal control. Sen. Merton Stanley, D-Kokomo, . warned "you will be back next year to face an enlargement" of the authorization granted in this bill only for sale of alcoholic beverages in the proposed new inn. Sen. Herman Fanning, D- Terre Haute, said v i s i t o r s might drink and then try water skiing or swimming with fatal results. .'. Bargaining Bill The collective bargaining bill, advanced on second reading in the House after, surviving a Democratic effort to make it a special order of business for Tuesday. The bill asserts the right of employes, including public: school teachrs, to be represented by an exclusive bargaining agency, but specifically bans any strike byi public. employes or teachers. j • Democratic assistant minority leader Rep. Frederick T. Bauer, D-Terre Haute, said the "GOP had refused to give Democrats; advance •' copies of a lengthy amendment to the collective bargaining bill although, "we represent 40 per cent of the people and this affects every • courthouse, city hall, school house and the Statehouse." Rep. Michael K. Rogers, RrNew Castle, introduced the amendment. .-'•'. Rogers'; amendment, in addition to specifically including teachers in. the bill and banning strikes, would delete private hospitals and [ school principals from being covered. Unions Here To Stay "I think public- employers know the union-is here and. here to stay and is not going to go away because they put their heads in the sand," Rogers; commented. . Rep. Richard D. Doyle, D- South Bend, questioned whether the ban against strikes would have. been in the amended version if teachers had been excluded from the bill. Rogers said he felt it would and added that teachers probably were in the original bill for public em­ ployes "by reference" even before they were specifically put in. •: ." ., The collective bargaining bill, which creates an Indiana Public Employment Relations Board of five members, contains a "final offer" provision that Rogers said "at this moment belongs to Indiana alone." This section provides for the board to name a panel for final arbitration if negotiations on a contract break down,, and that' this panel "shall select the most reasonable of the final offers submitted by the . parties."' | [The House had two votes on the [collective bargaining bill in advancing it to third reading for j p o s s i b 1 e final action (Continued on page eight) of Tipton County were sentenced to one year terms at the Indiana State Farm and assessed $1 fines, plus ccjurt-eosts in Tipton Circuit; Court Monday. j Tiptcjn Circuit Judge FredSur- ber handed down the _ decision, after the two pleaded guilty last week I tp third degree ; burglary in a January breakuT at the'Tri- Centrai High School building.

I ' • . • Tipton County Road Superintendent Bernard Smith Monday stated that road crews began grading and filling damaged gravel road sites for the first available time in several weeks and that barring added moisture the road surfaces would be taking good shape and banning of heavy vehicles would be lifted. Smith said blacktop roads had suffered some damage from freezing and thawing, but the extent of damage could not. be assessed until moisture had left. the underneath portions of the road beds.
