Dr. Albert Schweitzer, 90, died Saturday night at Lambarene, Gabon in West Africa and was buried Sunday near the African hospital, which he established in 1913. Acclaimed as the most famous physician of modern times, he gave up a brilliant career in Europe to serve as a missionary doctor in which is now the Republic of Gabon in West Africa. His staff now consists of six physicians, 17 nurses and attendants. . . . During his service of over a half century in this jungle region over a million and a half sick Africans have been treated at his hospital. ,• j < «, The fame of Dr. Schweitzer was not confined to the medical field. . Not only was he a missionary but he gained world renown as a theologian, philospher, author and musician. He was regarded as a world authority on Bach and was a noted organist. One of the most honered men of contemporary times, Dr Schweitzer was awarded the Nobel Peace Price in 1952 Too busy at that time at his hospital to go to Oslo, Norway, he was tendered the award two years later. The sum of $32,000 from the award was used by the recipient to establish huts for a leper colony not far from his hospital. „ „ ,, ,. In 1963, he was ranked in a Gallup Poll among the 10 most admired personages in the world. While some of his methods and theories were controversial he was an individual of phenomenal achievement who devoted his life to healing the suffering poor. And, he gave up a life of fame and comfort in Europe to serve a suffering multitude in a far-distant jungle land. On Jan. 14, 1965, President Johnson sent him a cable on his 90th birthday that said: "It is the good fortune of all men everywhere that you have lived among us for 90 years In your commitment to truth and service you have touched and deepened the lives of millions you never met. On behalf of the American people, I salute you." The world mourns the loss of a great humanitarian and physician, distinguished in other important fields of knowledge. Kashmir (Continued from Page One) As the scale of fighting increased contantly, United Nations Secretary General Thant prepared to fly to Rawalpindi and New Delhi to try to halt the hostilities. Pakistan asked the Soviet Union support but informed sources in Moscow said the Russians so far had taken an "impartial attitude" in the fighting. Russia has been giving massive aid to India. Review Aid Program The United States which has supplied about India and about billion aid to §3 billion to Pakistan was reported consider ing a review of its program in an effort to end the fighting. British Prime Minister Harold Wilson held an urgent series of conference? :n London with Indian and Pakistan officials but there was no indication of success. Informed sources said Britain would reject Pakistan's appeal for British military assistance under security arrangements of the Central Treaty Organization (CENTO). No help was expected from the Southeast Asia Treaty Organization (SEATO) of which Pakistan also is a member. A Pakistani military spokesman in Karachi reported downing of 24 Indian planes today in air battles over India and west and east Pakistan. He also reported a series of Pakistani air raids 200 miles southeast of Karachi in the Rann of Kutch area. Halt Indian Thrust The Pakistani spokesman said Pakistan troops and armor had halted an Indian thrust in the Lahore area. He said the Indians attacked repeatedly in brigade strength near Lahore but were turned back. Pakistan claimed its army was "in full and effective control" throughout West Pakistan although Indian forces still were on the Pakistani soil they invaded Monday. At the same time Pakistan threatened a new invasion of India in East Punjab where Sikh religious leaders have demanded a separate homeland and have argued bitterly with India. "The government regretfully announces the Pakistan army might march through Sikh territory," the statement said. This mountainous area is directly below Kashmir. There were indications in Karachi that the India high commission personnel stationed there might face "certain restrictions" in view of the rapid- 1 ly escalating war. This could mean internment. "The Real Thing" •Civil defense officials in Calcutta said after a 28 minute air raid alert that it was "not a practice rehearsal but the real thing." However, no bombs were reported dropped. Air raids were reported on Chaklala Airport on the out skirts of Rawalpindi, the Pakis tan capital, and on four other Pakistani cities including Kara chi. An Indian Defense Ministry spokesman in New Delhi ad mitted Indian forces were being stopped in the Lahore area. Bu he claimed major victories over the Pakista/ii armed forces. India said its jets destroyec nine American-make Pakistan planes Monday and damaged two others while losing eight He said Pakistani para troopers dropped behind Indian lines for sabotage purposes hac been rounded up. The spokesman also reported Indian jets knocked out 16 Pak istani Patton and Serman tanks pieces, two ligh guns and between 14 artillery anti-aircraft 30 and 40 army vehicles.

People's Say-So Iditor, The Daily News ;reensburg, Indiana On Sunday, Sept. 12, at 2 p. m. he regular general meeting of otowners and interested per- ons will be held at Presbyte- ian Union Cemetery, located iree miles south of Forest Hill Township, Decatur i Jackson lounty. These general meetings are ..eld each three years. Anyone nterested is cordially invited to attend. Those attending and vot- ng are the ruling body of the Presbyterian Union Cemetery Association. Inc., for by the gen- ral vote seven trustees are elect- .d for the period of six years each. At the meeting in 1962, three rustees were elected. This places he privilege and obligation of visely choosing four trustees for election or re-election. Trustees vhose term.-; expire this year are: John Milton Evans, Wai- ace L. Johnson. Harold B. Ogden and Elda H. Pavy. Carryover trustees are: Howard Kroner, A. Wayne Johnson and Al- 3ert Johnson. Trustees, so elected, then elect heir officers and have the responsibility of the care, control, collection and dispersal of the unds (both general and endowment) of this cemetery associa- ion and the maintenance, care and improvement of the ceme- :ery. The present officers are: Slda H. Pavy, president, who succeeded the late Dr. I. M. Sanders; John Milton Evans, vice president, serving his second ;erm; Wallace L. Johnson, superintendent of grounds and keeper of the plat book for many years; and Harold B. Ogden, secretary- reasurer, since the re-organiza- :ion of the association in 1941. The cemetery has been unusually blessed by excellent care and devotion of its caretakers or sextons, Cleve Welch for many years ar;d now Lewis Jayne. A deep vote of thanks is due them and their wives by the entire community. A visit to this meeting and cem etery will prove that it is outstanding in care and beauty among rural cemeteries. The grounds have an overall -expansion and improvement program in 1961. This year, new paint and roofing of all buildings was completed with definite support from President Pavy. Lot markings by Trustee Johnson and roadway work by Trus- :ee Fromer have added further to the cemetery beauty. The new section acquired in 1961 was efficiently platted by Frank Marlin and the original by John W. Crise. Lots in either section are available at prices so reasonable that they may have to be increased. Money from the sale of lots nominal interment fees and contributions and bequests are the only sources of income for improvements, repairs and any incidental expenses over and above the fixed expense for insurance and the sexton's salary. These items are met by the income from the permanent funds, which are invested in Government bonds, certificates of deposit with each of the two Greensburg banks and some $1,500 on deposit in Greensburg Building & Loan Association. Whether or not an invitation to contribute is given, you will be welcome to come and hear abou this cemetery association and its work. We trust you will attend Any contribution, large or small can be made to any of the trus tees. Originally, Union Presbyterian Church was established south o Forest Hill and its cemetery was developed later. Subsequently the Union congregation acquirec a church building at Forest Hill For a time, both congregations were ruled by one set of officer and served by a pastor, who di vided his time. The congregation attending the country 'location decreased to the point of les than one meeting a month Thereafter the country property reverted to the Whitewater Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church. When the cemetery association was re-organized and became active in 1941, the Presbytery deeded the property to the new association. While rich in church history, there is now no de- nominational affiliation for the cemetery, although it is incorporated under the name, "Presbyterian Union Cemetery Association, Inc." This has been very helpful in distinguishing the cemetery from other union churches and cem- teries in this and adjoining counties, preventing confusion as to identity. It was due to the initial vision and activity of Milton E. Evans hat a solid foundation was es- ablished upon which the ceme- ery association has grown. Many have served it well as officers, trustees, donors, friends and supporters in many ways. Several have served as president but none as long as Elda H. :>avy now heading the associa- ion It was his dream, desire, drive and personal supervision of each detail, which has been •esponsible for the success in maintenance and improvements of the past six years. Thanks to everyone, and we lope you can be present at 2 p. m. on Sunday, Sept. 12. (s) Harold B.

Artillery Fire Marine planes strafed the landing zone before dawn and a barrage of heavy artillery shells was fired into the peninsula from the cruiser Oklahoma ;ity, flagship of the U. S. Fleet. The offensive was dubbed Piranha" after the man-eating South American fish. In a separate action near Qui Nhon, a military spokesman said the commander of a Marine battalion used tear gas today to drive suspected Viet Cong and women from caves and tunnels. The spokesman said the commander apparently unaware of the strict policy against the use of tear gas in such cases. An investigation >vas underway to find out why. The spokesman said the Viet ong were using the women for shields. He said the tear gas was effective and drove the suspected Communists and the women from their hiding places with nothing more serious than tear-filled eyes. In Saigon, a terrorist grenade killed one Vietnamese and wounded six others near the Tan Dinh police substation. Witnesses said the grenade was hurled by a terrorist on a bicycle who escaped. The Viet Cong has been reported increasingly active in the Ba Lang An coastal region. Only Monday guerrillas am bushed and inflicted casualties on two platoons of Vietnamese soldiers 55 miles to the south.

Daily N.ewi, fyeiijajr, , 1965 •COLLEGE CORNER, Ohio UPI) ; — This is the home of Union High'School, but it has a distinct Indiana flavor. Most of the more than 700 tuderits live a few miles west tf here in the Hoosier State, but Union maintains its status quo by paying allegiance to >oth states. Its teachers are paid by both states; it has a joint Ohio-Indi- aria school'board and from its flagpole flutter'the'flags of both states along' with the Stars and Stripes. It's probably the most unique school setup in the .country and officials say it works' but very well. Whatever rivalry exists between the two states is limited to the field of athletics. "We're very proud of the uniqueness of this situation,' said Everett Potts, who also plays a' dual rol'e. In the school eight years, he is superintendent of the Ohio district and principal of the Indiana district. The state line runs squarely through the school's . gymnasium. "There is a 'I' on one side of the (basketball) jump circle an '0' on the other side," said Potts. : Union operates a 7-man Indi ana school board and a 5-man aid there is no •inter-state ickering. The faculty Is about half Hoosier and half Buckeye and all teachers "must' be cert}- ied by both states. The school was organized in 1892 and in 1921 legislatures '<& both states created the joint chool district. It was reorgan- zed recently because of r consql- dations and the sctiboj now draws students from 2 spates, : counties and 6 townships, 75 per cent of them from Indiana. In athletics, Union belongs to the Whitewater Valley Conference in Indiana and the Treble Valley Conference in Ohio. This year Union applied for and was granted admission to the Indiana High School Athletic Association. "In Ohio, we were assigned to the Cincinnati area and it was much more-advantageous for us to belong to the Indiana association," said Potts, a Hoosier from Laurel. The school operates 12 grades and teachers are paid by both states on a proportionate basis of enrollment. In athletic competition, Union plays no favorites, scheduling schools from both states. But now that it belongs to the IHSAA a bit of an Ohio' flavor may be. injected into state-wide competition. Ohio board.
