Its objective is to curb floods and develop water resources. Proper utilization of the provisions of this act can contribute much to insuring an adequate water supply for the future. And, demands for use of water for human consumption, agricultural and livestock requirements, industrial needs are growing. Water is a prime asset in development of parks and lakes for recreational purposes. Currently, water tables are failing at a time when population is expanding. There is a possibility that counties in the present Tenth Indiana District will be faced with a major problem in this field unless action is taken now. This is the opinion of Rep. Ralph Harvey, a member of Congress from the district. Later in the fall, he plans to hold a series of meetings in the district to afford a fuller explanation of the Small Watershed Act. Major programs relating to navigable rivers are handled by the U. S. Corps of Army Engineers. This applies to the Wabash and Ohio Rivers. Valuable assistance has been rendered by the Indiana Flood Control and Water Resources Commission as well as by such groups as the Wabash Valley Association and Southern Indiana, Inc. The Soil Conservation Sendee with an office in virtually every county administers the Small Watershed Program. Rep. Harvey is a student on problems in this field. Currently, he is serving as ranking minority member of the Conservation and Credit Subcommittee of the House. Committee in Agriculture, which has congressional authority over the Small Watershed Program. Stating that the present Tenth District is peculiarly adapted to development of small watershed projects, Harvey states: "We are at the headwaters of the Wabash and Whitewater River systems, which means small streams. The opportunity is right before us to develop at appropriate sites a district-wide series of flood control, recreation, water supply and anti-pollution projects. It is in fact more than an opportunity; it is a 'must' if we are to grow, prosper and develop our natural resources." Progress in this field in the district was cited by the Tenth District congressman. This includes: Additional water reservoirs at Richmond and Muncie; water planning projects at New Castle and Greenfield; and establishment of water conservancy districts in sevreal counties and in parts of others. Rep. Harvey suggests the possibility of cleaning up of banks and channels of the White and Missisinewa Rivers as they flow through Deleware and Randolph Counties. There are numerous sites for flood control and recreational lakes on both the East and West Forks of Whitewater River in Randolph, Wayne, Fayette and Union Counties. As a result of his study of possibilities in the present Tenth District, Rep. Harvey declared: "Flat Rock River and its tributaries as they flow through Henry, Rush, Decatur and Shelby Counties offers numerous opportunities for such flood control and recreation sites. There is the Blue River in tfenry and Rush Counties, and smaller streams such as Sand Creek in Decatur County; Sugar Creek in Hancock and Shelby Counties; Buck Creek in Henry and Delaware. Fall Creek flows in Henry and Delaware, and into Marion County through Lawrence Township, where it joins the White River, which flows from Tipton and Hamilton Counties." "Reservoirs and lakes on these streams are of vast importance to the citizens in our district, not only for ample water supply but to carry off sewage and waste material," Rep. Harvey explained. "Even though treated in disposal plants the sewage from our cities requires enough water as it flows downstream to allow oxygenation and purification, so that the water may be used again and again." In some of the locations the land to be taken out of cultivation may be too valuable to justify the project. In many others, this will not be the case, according to the Tenth District member of Congress. Under the Small Watershed Act the local costs are relatively small. The federal government does the engineering and planning. After feasibility of each project is gauged by benefits and costs. Rep. Harvey added: "The program boils down to the local conservancy district's furnishing the right-of-way and the cost for future maintenance, while the federal government pays for the planning, engineering, and construction of the dams and straightening and clearing of the streambeds. Upon completion the federal government steps out and the project becomes the property of the local community. "None of these projects are short-range in scope. They are long-range planning. When we do accomplish the ultimate we can provide adequate water supply and better recreational facilities, and preserve our valuable soil resources for generations to come, thus making our Tenth District one of the most beautiful and desirable places in which to live in the whole of the USA." Decatur County needs to take advantage of all opportunities for development under the Small Watershed Act. This constituted more far-reaching legislation than has been generally recognized by Hoosier citizens. Policemen Hurt in Greenwood Chase GREENWOOD, Ind. (UPI) — Greenwood Patrolman John Myers. 24, and Cleo Heston, 35, Whiteland. a civil defense policeman, were injured Monday night when a police car overturned and caught fire while the two chased a suspicious car at high speed on U. S. 31 north of here. Myers was hospitalized in serious condition and Heston in fair condition. The pursued car, which aroused the suspicions of a service station attendant at Franklin, got away. ATHENS (UPI) — King Constantine today called for a Crown Council of leading politicians in an effort to break the political deadlock that has given Greece 47 days of crisis. It is a rarely used procedure. An announcement from the royal palace said the council was called for Wednesday night. Attending will be 11 former premiers and fP men from . . tne four parliamentary political parties.

Explosion Burns Fatal to Welder LAFAYETTE, Ind. (UPI) — Danny R. Garrett, 19, Earl Park, died in St. Elizabeth Hospital early today of burns suffered Monday in an explosion at the Essco Co. at Fowler. Authorities said Garrett was welding an empty tank barrel when the explosion was apparently set off by fumes. He was burned over 90 per cent of his body. Two fellow workers suffered minor burns in attempts to put out the flames. Treated were Nick Leuck, 45. Ambia, and Frank Ritchey, 45, Fowler. ANCIENT CROP WASHINGTON — American Indians, it is estimated, cultivated the corn plant as a crop for about 5,000 years. (Continued from Page One) Commerce Secretary John T. Connor closely watching, were "amicable and intense." Cites Industry Profits House Speaker John W. McCormack expressed hope that management and labor negotiators would remain in session here until they reach an agreement. McCormack reeled off previously announced statistics showing that steel industry profits were running well ahead of any year since the peak of 1958. Asked if this meant, the congressional leaders felt management could pay higher wages wihhout increasing prices, McCormich declined to give a specific reply. He said he cited the figures to show that an area for agreement and avoidance of a strike existed. In some industrial disputes, he noted, strikes were more or less inevitable. Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield said "it is recognized that, a steel strike at this time would deal a damaging blow to our prosperity and to the defense of the dollar." "Close to one million men will immediately become idle and hundreds of thousands more would join in idleness as users of steel run out of inventories," Mansfield added. Cause Of Recession The Montana senator noted that Dr. Arthur Burns, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers in the Eisenhower administration, had said the 1959 steel strike was a major cause of the 1960 recession. "We cannot have that again," Mansfield said. "What we want and need, as the President said this morning, is a fair and just and non-inflationary settlement." The postponement was a preliminary victory in the President's efforts to avert a strike he said could damage "the health and vitality of cur economy and the security of America around the world." Second Prodding It was the second time the steel industry averted a shutdown under prodding from the Johnson administration. Last May, union and management agreed to postpone a showdown aad continue operations on a temporary basis. A federal mediator was involved in the talks at that time and Johnson's role was not as active as it was Monday. Major steelmakers already were banking their blast furnaces in preparation for the strike, which would have shut down 80 per cent of the basic steel - producing industry in the nation. But shortly after Johnson's announcement, on national radio and television Monday night, U. S. Steel ordered all furnaces refired and other big firms began to follow suit. United Steelworkers President I. W. Abel instructed his 450,000 members to remain on the job while contract negotiations continued. In addition, he said, while top - level talks continued in Washington, various subcommittees would resume negotiations in Pittsburgh "to resolve the issues which remain before them.'" Hectic Day The "ostponement came toward the end of a hectic day that began when Johnson summoned the deadlocked negotiating teams to the White House from Pittsburgh. He put them to work here in a personal mediation attempt to avert a crippling shutdown of the vital steel industry. Eight hours later, flanked by Abel and R. Conrad Cooper, the U. S. Steel executive who rep- represents the , companies, appeared briefly on television to announce the postponement. "Gentlemen," the President said, 'this decision has served the national interest and I'm very proud of each of you and the contribution you have made." He then sent the two negotiating teams back to the bargaining table. Talks continued for an hoiu% then broke off to resume today. ident Johnson's higher education bill. The committee voted 16-0 to send the measure to the Senate floor for action this week, probably Thursday. WASHINGTON (UPI)—Budget Director Charles J. Schultze says government spending probably will break the $100 billion mark for the first time this year because the increased effort in Viet Nam. MOSCOW (UPI) — The Soviet Union made a powerful public plea for admission to the November Afro-Asian conference in Algiers today despite Communist Chinese opposition. The plea was made by President Anastas I. Mikoyan in an address at a Kremlin friendship rally honoring visiting U. A. R. President Gamal Abdel Nasser. GENEVA (UPI) — Russia, accusing the West of "duplicity," today formally rejected U. S. plans for checking the spread of nuclear weapons. Soviet negotiator Semyon Tsarapkin, in his formal reply to the proposal the United States introduced at the 17-nation disarmament conference here two weeks ago, reaffirmed the familiar Russian stand that the West must give up plans for an Allied nuclear force if it wants the Kremlin's help in limiting the size of the "nuclear club.'' MOSCOW (UPI) — The Soviet Union officially congratulated America today on the Gemini 5 flight which captured the space endurance record from Russia. A cable from Soviet President Anastas I. Mikoyan to President Johnson asked him to "extend our congratulations to American astronauts (Gordon) Cooper and (Charles) Conrad on the safe conclusion of their Gemini 5 space flight." SANTO DOMINGO (UPI) -Brig. Gen. Antonio Imbert Barrera's junta regime offered its resignation under apparent pressure Monday night, probably clearing the way for installation of a provisional government in the crisis-torn Dominican Repufe- lie. PA6E6 Greensburg (Ind.)

Veteran Swiss glacier, pilot Hermann Geiger dropped 700 pounds of explosives despite drifting clouds and sudden gusts of wind to loosen chunks of ice threatening the rescue' workers. Four guides had marked the most dangerous areas with red paint, and. rescue teams pulled back till the operation was over. The daring pilot dropped the charges by hand after touching off the tape primer with his cigarette lighter. Then he took his helicopter away in a quick turn while thunder shook the glacier and the menacing blocks of ice as big as houses tumbled'down. The great chunks of ice .tumbling down 13,750-foot Mount Strahlhorn at random. had disrupted operations where the slide estimated at 500,000. tons snuffed out 99 lives as it slid 2,000 feet onto a dam construction site. Six bodies had been recovered. Officials of the Elektro-Watt Co., builder Of the dam six miles from the Italian frontier, said 99 men were killed or missing and presumed dead. The fate of another worker was uncertain but officials were checking identities. Tourists Escape Forty tourists visiting the Mattmark dam construction site escaped death Monday but watched in horror as the avalanche crushed their bus with tons of ice. They were sightsee- ing in a sheltered area and were spared the fate of the workers. Authorities listed the dead or missing as 59 Italians, 27 Swiss, 7 Spaniards, 2 Germans, 2 Austrians, 1 Yugoslav and 1 stateless person. The Italians had come across the border to take advantage of the pay of §75 a week — astronomical for this area. The construction site was a grisly picture of destruction. Bliss Announces Truce With Barry By RAYMOND M. LAHR WASHINGTON (UPI) — Gov. William W. Scranton of Pennsylvania predicted today that GOP splinter groups whose members are "truly interested'" in the Republican party will wither away. He included Barry M.

Scranton made his observa- WASHINGTON (UPI) — The House today was expected to place the final stamp of congressional approval on President Johnson's proposal for a cabinet-level department of housing and urban development. ; The action would send the measure to the White House for Johnson's signature. Its enactment would create the llth cabinet department and the first new cabinet post since 1953. UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (UPI) — United Nations diplomats met today to plan a formal end to last year's suspended do-nothing General Assembly session and open the way f,or a more productive assembly later next month. The task was easei' by Washington's policy reversal in the U. N. financial crisis. tions at a news conference after he addressed a closed breakfast session of House Republicans. He said GOP National Chairman Ray C. Bliss was trying to bring all elements of the party together and wanted to make the regular party organization so strong that there would be no need for splinter groups. Bliss Reaches Truce Bliss reported today he had reached a truce with Goldwater to harness the party's resources to elect Republican candidates. He met privately Monday with the 1964 GOP presidential nominee. Bliss' report on his private conference with the 1964 presidential nominee came after a GOP coordinating Committee splinter groups^ including Goldwater's conservatively flavored Free Society Association. The committee met to go over task force reports on civil rights and the balance of payments problems, but it made so many changes that it decided to release the reports later. Although Goldwater was no longer present, it then began discussing the many inde- groups election Tax Rate (Continued from Page One) was needed before the group interested in expansion of airport facilities can proceed. A complaint was aired of the noise created by motor scooters and motor bikes being operated here, often in a reckless manner and sometimes by youths under the age of 16, which is required for a driver's license. The matter of some residents not keeping weeds cut on their property was discussed. Mayor Sherman G, Miers reported Earl Wonn was quitting as city-county sanitarian, effective Aug. 31. The post has been eliminated from the city's budget for next year. In the absence of a sanitarian, Street Commissioner David Scheidler is to supply names of residents with high weeds on their property to the health department so that an order can be issued for the weeds to be cut at the property owner's expense. Steps are to be taken toward purchase of a new city firetruck to replace the present 1929-model. A portion of the amount necessary was included in this year's budget and the remainder of the cost is to be financed through a lease-purchase plan. Specifications are to be drawn up in the near future so that advertising for bids can be done.

Bliss, since the 1964 who was one of the first to deplore formation of the Free Society Association, already had arranged a private session later with Goldwater.

The ambulances were eht away because there was no ope for the buried men. Swiss avalanche experts said lere were two possible causes or the disaster: The warm eather and construction dynamiting. The tremendous slide destroyed soon were bombarded with questions on the debate about splinter groups, which are cri- icized for draining energy and money away from the regular jarty organization. Gov. Robert E. Smylie of Idaho, chairman of the GOP Governors' Association, was eager to throw punches with both fists. He said it was time to discuss the independent groups and "have it out on the floor." le suggested that their spokesmen be invited to air gripes to members of the committee.

A 40-ton caterpillar was swept away like a toy. The wind itself rushing ahead of the slide destroyed wooden buildings. No estimate of the damage was made but chief engineer Alexandre Verrey said about ?9 million had been invested in machinery and installations alone. He said "we never took the possibility of such a break- off into consideration." Bulldozers and specially- trained avalanche dogs were used to find victims of the slide, worst in Switzerland in 84 years. Eighteen workers on the 'ringes of the slide escaped ivith slight injuries by outrunning the avalanche in a daring race against death. Unseasonably warm weather >osed oday By United Press International For all its deadliness, the August traffic fatality situation in Indiana fell far short of matching the toll in the corresponding month last year. As a result, some significant gains were made in holding down the comparative death count. Three fatalities Monday raised the year's toll to at least 933, and that was where it stood today compared with 845 a year ago. Earlier this summer, the number of dead was running as much as 125 albove the corresponding figures for 1964. The difference was down to 88 today, due almost entirely to the fact the August toll was 129, with one day to go, while the toll for August, 1964, was 165, the greatest number ever killed hi Indiana traffic in a calendar month. Mrs. Mary Ann Cooksey, 24, R.R. 2, Crawfordsville, and her son, Richard Lee, 6, were killed Monday when their car swerved into the wrong lane of a road four miles southeast of Crawfordsville and struck the bed of a truck loaded with corn. Mrs. Cooksey's sons, Rex, 5, and Terry, 3. were hurt. Charles E. Frey, 27, R.R. 1, Crawfordsville driver of the truck, was riot injured.

B52s hit targets in areas over the the same two weekend. Today's double strike brought ;o 16 the number of such at- :acfks since June 18 when the Dig bombers were first used against Zone D. The early B52 raids were criticized in some quarters because there was no immediate proof of their effectiveness, and forays into bombed out areas failed to find the vast quantities of Viet Cong dead evidently expected. But later evaluation indicated the 'bomber, the biggest in the Air Force arsenal, had disrupted Viet Cong life seriously and it was decided to step up the pace. Intelligence reports said the raids had forced the. Viet Cong in several cases to give up long held positions where government troops had never been able to penetrate. A U.S. military spokesman reported that the Viet Cong inflicted "moderate" casualties among the 100 Vietnamese defenders at An Hoa just 15 miles from the Chu Lai beaches where U.S. Marines scored the biggest American victory of the war two weeks ago. No Resistance The Viet Cong gave up what was left of the burned-out garrison without a fight several hours after the pre-dawn assault in the face of Vietnamese reinforcements airlifted into the area by helicopter. First reports said two battalions of Viet Cong — aibout 1,000 men—stormed An Hoa. The fort's radio fell silent during the attack and there were no reports from the outpost until the reinforcements arrived and re-established contact with Saigon. No Americans were involved in the An Hoa fighting. The guerrillas attacking An Hoa today ripped into the outpost at 12:45 a.m. At 3:56 a.m., an American observation pilot reported that the fort was in flames and completely overwhelmed. Retaliatory strikes by four American fighter-iboiribers, two Skyraiders and two B57's, failed to prevent the Communist onslaught. Military spokesmen said it was possible the An Hoa attack was carried out by remnants of the Viet Cong regiment which was battered by the Marines in the earlier Chii Lai battle. The heavily outnumbered An Hoa defenders did not have a chance against the 'big Communist force.
