White WE BRAG ABOUT our Bill of Rights of the federal Constitution and take for granted our precious liberties. • If you want a shock, ask members of your family, including junior fry, to tell what goes to make up the Bill of Rights of our Constitution. In fact, I had to hunt the Mr. White place over to find a copy of either the state or federal Constitutions. Here, in simple words, are | some of the liberties we have enjoyed from 1791 to 1965 under our Bill of Rights. These liberties we have had for 174 years, as they became a part of the federal Constitution on Dec. 15, 1791. THE BILL OF RIGHTS, the first 10 amendments to the Constitution, does these things. It forbids Congress from making any law establishing a state religion. It prohibits Congress from gagging our right to freely express ourselves on any subject. It prohibits Congress from abridging the freedom of expression of the newspapers we read. It prohibits Congress from preventing our assemblage peacefully for redress of grievances. NO SOLDIER IN TIME of peace or war can be quartered in a home arbitrarily—that is, without due process of law. No one can enter our home to seize our person, or papers and effects, without a warrant. To be held for a capital or other infamous crime, we must be indicted by a g^and jury. We cannot be tried twice for the same offense and we cannot be a witness against ourselves. WE CANNOT BE deprived of life, liberty or property without due process, of law. The government itself is forbidden to take private property without just compensation. IN ALL CRIMINAL prosecutions, if accused, we shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, and be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation, to be confronted with the witnesses against us, to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in our favor and to have assistance of counsel for our defense. In suits where the value in controversy exceeds $20, we have a right of trial by jury. Excessive bail shall not be required nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and inhuman punishments inflicted. The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be constructed to deny or disparage others retained by the people. THE POWERS NOT delegated to the United States by the Con- titution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states, respectively, or to the people. There is plenty of food for thought in the foregoing provisions of our precious Bill of Rights. HAVE YOU STOPPED to consider, it was a Jew who brought the gospel to Rome; a Roman who took it to France; a Frenchman who took it to Scandinavia ; and a Scandinavian who took it to Scotland. It was a Scotchman who evangelized Ireland and an Irishman who made the missionary conquest of Scotland. Many popular expressions today stem from the Bible. For ex- TOSSING TO AND FRO— from John 7:4.

POURING OUT — Corn pouring from the hopper on this picker shelter Wednesday afternoon is a familiar scene as harvest of a record corn crop starts in Decatur County. Here Kenneth Null watches 140-bushel-per-acre corn dumped from a picker sheller operated by Charles Reiger on the Dr. Albert Russell farm west of Greensburg. The corn was grown on the farm by Franklin Corya. 115 Bushels Per Acre— County Harvesting Record Corn Crop Harvest of what appears to be a record corn crop has started in Decatur County. Early predictions are that more than GVz million bushels of the county's major feed-grain crop will be harvested within the next month. And, if these predictions hold true, this means the average yield will surpass the magic 100 bushel-per-acre mark by 15 bushels per acre. There are approximately 57,000 acres of corn to be harvested in Decatur County this fall and farm officials today are guessing the average yield per acre will be 115 bushels. The previous high was 100 bushels per acre recorded in 1962. Local farmers are on the threshold of their greatest corn crop in history, with the memory of a lean year in 1964 still fresh in their minds. Due to sev- BULLETINS INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) — Na- eral weeks of drought at the crucial period when corn needed moisture to mature, last year's crop was cut approximately 20 bushels per acre with the county's 1964 yield winding up at about the 75-bushel-per-acre mark. Conceding that this year's harvest is just starting and a wet season could still seriously hamper corn picking and shelling operations, local farmers are growing more optimistic by the day with the crop past the poinl where frost and cold weather could adversely effect the yield. Bean Harvest Many farmers are still busy in their soybean fields, attempting to wind up the harvest of a bean crop that has been delayed by excessive rains in recent weeks. With only an average soybean harvest this year, local farmers are looking forward to Temper FRANKLIN, Ind.

MINNEAPOLIS (UPI) — Manager Walter Alston of the Los Angeles Dodgers today picked Sandy Koufax, baseball's leading pitcher, to start the seventh and deciding game of the World Series against the Minnesota Twins. INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) — Sen. Everett M. Dirksen, R-I11., said today he believes the failure of majority Democrats to stop a filibuster on the administration bill to repeal the "right to work" section of the Taft-Hartley law may mean "we will not have to contend with this issue next time." When a pay telephone booth gobbled up his dime without giving him a call in exchange, Edwin Swint, 29, Franklin, hopped in his car and smashed the roadside booth, police charged today. Swint was arrested early today on charges of drunk driving, reckless driving, disregarding a stop sign and trespassing. He told State Police Trooper Russell Miller he lost a dime trying to make ^a phone call and flattened the booth- in a moment of pique. Miller said he witnessed the display of temper. The telephone company estimated the damage at $750, which adds up to 7,500 dimes. moving into their plush corn fields. To support predictions of this year's record corn harvest, several yields in the 150 to 175- bushel-per-acre range have been reported to date. Most of that harvested to date has been with picker-shellers and hauled directly from the field to the drying bins. A few pickers are starting, but moisture of the corn is still too high for extensive cribbing in most instances, it was explained. Farm officials pointed out that numerous spot checks, although still unofficial, have indicated that the 200-bushel- per-acre mark will be surpassed in Five-Acre Corn Club competition for the first time.in Decatur County this year.

Gen. John S. Anderson was expected to announce late today which 59 units of the 38th Infantry; Division, National Guard, will be given more training to. make, them combat ready for possible use in South Viet Nam. ' ; The Pentagon announced' Wednesday Indiana would provide ;9,875 men for the new program, . the" second highest total in the United States. Only Pennsylvania was listed to train more men, the total over 16,000. Officials said besides 9,623 men from the 38th, 158 'men will enter the program from the 199th Ordnance Company at Kokomo, 252 men from the 192nd Ordnance Company at South Bend, 186 from the 890th Transportation Company . at , Fort Wayne and 16 from the 394th Adjutant General postal unit in Judson. The groups besides the 38th Infantry Division are Army Reserve units. , . Low Power Units Andersonr said Wednesday the remaining 30 units of the 38th would; go into low power units, with the : program scheduled to be implemented by Nov. 1. "One concept of the national program is that we get the trained people • into the 100 per cent brigades," Anderson said. "We can man the select brigade with the people we have but we will have to recruit for the low power units." . He said the National Guardsmen, with the most training would probably be' transferred to the-select brigade, with more use expected fo be made of the 32,000 acres : set aside for the forces at Camp Atterbury. He also revealed that for the first time Indiana would have a paratrooper battalion. Anderson said it would be one of four infantry battalions which he classified as "two straight, one airborne aiid one mechanized." •• • • Atterbury Area Anderson said the area already assigned to the Guard at Atterbury will be adequate and the increased training would not interfere with the federal job corps camp there. The head of Indiana's military relayed the information to Governor Branigin Wednesday from a briefing on the new program' ' he attended in 'Washington. - ' He said the training • time has been stepped up from 12 drill periods "eacfi quarter to 18, and for the staff from 12 to 24. He said weekend time at Atterbury will 'be' increased to provide additional;, drilling but that the summer training period probably will remain two weeks in length. • December Draft Call Is 45,224 WASHINGTON (UPI) — The Defense Department today stepped up the draft call again, setting a quota of 45,224 men for the Army and Marine Corps in December. The Selective Service call was more than 10,000 men higher than the 35,000-a-month rate originally .set by President Johnson. It compared with a quota of 36,450 for November. The Defense Department said the Army would get 40,200 of the December draftees, and that 5,024 would go into the Marine Corps. Including enlistments, the Army expecis to get 47,900 recruits during December. The Marines are . shooting for 8,424. ; The services are engaged in a 340,000-man buildup for the^Viet Nam .crisis.

'Coming Along Fine"— Johnson Slow to Regain Strength By WILLIAM WASHINGTON J. EATON (UPI)—President Johnson is not regaining his strength after surgery as rapidly as had been expected but his over-all recovery is "coming along fine" White House Press Secretary Bill D. Moyers reported today. The Chief Executive spent a somewhat restless night at Bethesda Naval Hospital where he is recovering from his gall bladder and kidney stone operation. As a result of having slept intermittently during the night, Johnson slept later than usual today, awakening about 9 a. m. EOT. "His recovery is coming along fine." Moyers said, "but he is more tired and weaker than anyone thought after the operation." Within hours after his operation last Friday, Johnson took a few steps and was more active than usual for a gall bladder surgery patient on Saturday and Sunday. He was active to the point where one of his chief physicians, Dr. James C. Cain, Mayo Clinic, internist, spoke of the unusual' nature of Johnson's bounce-back. By Monday, however, customary post -operative pain around-the incision and .discomfort from gas developed and have been present thiS'week in diminishing degree bu?'still noticeable, i "He is gaining.his /strength more slowly than • anyone thought and thus proving, after all, to be a usual patient."'Meyers 'said at an 11 a.m. EDT briefing. Moyers also said Presidents restlessness Wedneday night, according to the doctors, was "not unusual at this stage of recuperation." Surgery patients after a few days of recovery and unaccustomed to long hours in bed, often become restless and find their sleep patterns out of kilter, he said.
