Red Cross Assists in Major Disasters In no period in recent years has the American Red Cross faced heavier calls for assistance — nor has rendered greater service — than in the first nine months of 1965. The American Red Cross has been commissioned by act of Congress as the nation's official disaster-relief agency. One of the major disasters was the Palm Sunday tornadoes in North Central Indiana. This caused loss of life, suffering and high property damage. Soon after the disaster, occurred, the Red Cross was on the job, feeding people, assisting them in procurement of shelter and beginning the task of rehabilitation. Even more devastating was Hurricane Betsy, which menaced the Gulf States. The cleaning up process is still going on. Nearly a million people were affected. The disaster ranks as the greatest since the 1937 flood along the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. Before Betsy blew in, the American Red Cross had expended $5 million or half of the normal sum allocated to disaster relief. The clean-up in the Gulf States is expected to cost $14 million. It is not surprising that the Red Cross has requested chapters to receive special gifts to meet disaster needs in stricken areas. To do the job that no other agency can perform, the Red Cross lias been forced to dip into emergency funds. A portion of the allocation received by the Decatur County Red Cross chapter through the United Fund goes to keep the national machinery in operation for instant response in the event of a disaster. The other portion serves needs in Decatur County. Funds which have been contributed directly to the Red Cross to meet disaster needs are earmarked for this purpose and are sent directly to national headquarters. The ability of the American Red Cross to mobilize rapidly in the event of a disaster forms an insurance for Americans throughout the nation. While special gifts to the Red Cross will assist in meeting unusual emergencies, support of the Decatur County United Fund also assists in meeting unusual Red Cross requirements in 1965 in the field of disaster relief.

Daily News, Monday, Oct. 18.196 Exodus from Cuba Gets in High Gedr By MATTHEW T. KENNY KEY WEST Fla. (UPI) — The exodus of refugees from Communist Cuba by small boats went into high gear today and the fantail of one U. S. Coast Guard ship operating in the "freedom shuttle" carried so many children it looked like a giant baby carriage. Havana radio reported this morning that 24 boats had arrived in Cuba during the past 24 hours and that there were 70 boats in the port of Camarioca being readied to bring refugees to the United States under Fidel Castro'.s open door policy. Arriving refugees estimated 6,000 persons were awaiting transportation at Camarioca. Thirty-six refugees, among them 18 children, and 12 crewmen from two small boats were brought here by the Coas Guard cutter Cape Shoalwate at 9 a.m. today. Spot Five Boats Five more small boats wer reported sighted in the choppj Florida straits under cutter es cort with at least 52 Cuban aboard. The new arrivals brought t< around 500 the total number o Cubans entering the Unitei States since Castro opened hi sugar cane curtain. Six Miners Die In West Virginia Pit C L A.R K S B U R G, W. Va., (UPI) — Six miners trapped deep underground when fires broke out in a soft coal mine near here late Saturday night were found dead today. A seventh man was brought out alive last night but died a few minutes later. "I don't believe it, I don't believe it, I have to stay here and see for myself," cried the wife of Clell Leedy, 53, when rescue workers brought word they had found the last four bodies— those of Leedy and three miners huddled together in an area behind one of the fire areas. The miners had died of uffocation. It was a heartbreaking end to a 30-hour rescue effort. It came only a short time after rescuers 'ound signs which spurred lopes the last four might be alive. The four bodies were found about five hours after rescue workers recovered the bodies of ,he two other men. The seven men were trapped at about midnight (EOT) Satur- day when fires broke out in four separate passages of the Clinchfield Coal Co.'s Mars No 2 mine. The fires were triggered by short circuit caused when an electrical cable was cut by a | "continuous miner," a largi I machine which digs out coa and moves it into cars on a conveyor.

Communist China, quoting North Vietnamese officials, claimed Sunday 664 American planes have been shot down in the North since Aug. 5, 1964. The U. S. spokesman said the site destroyed Sunday had "all of its portable equipment in place." There have been no reports recently of any U. S. planes being shown down by the SAM rockets. Two U. S.

NEW wmmmmms PUT BACK THE TASTE OTHERS TAKE AWAY tLUCKY STRIKE Mters TRY NEW LUCKY STRIKE FILTERS Product Churctffl's\fidow Suffers Ann Fracture LONDON (UPI) — Lady Spencer-Churchill, 80-year-old 'widow of Sir Winston Churchill, had an uncomfortable night but is as well as could be expected, a medical bulletin said today. She suffered a broken right arm Sunday when struck by a soccer ball in Hyde Park. Doctors said she was responding satisfactorily to treatment. Welfare (Continued from Page One) trustees in going over their proposed tax figures. Minor changes may be recommended to the state board, as is customary, but no specific changes could be stated by the hearing commissioners. Should the State Tax Board accept the recommendation of Miller, the county rate for 1966 would stand at $1.51 instead of the $1.49, including one cent state levy, set by the County Tax Adjustment Board. The County Welfare Department had originally requested a 27.8-cent rate for 1966. This was trimmed to 23.8 cents by the county council. The tax adjustment board then cut this to 20.8 cents, still an increase of eight- tenths of a cent over the 1965 rate. Defends Rate Royal, in seeking to justify this 23.8-cent rate, cited increased expenditures for hospital care, both locally and at the Indianapolis Medical Center. He stated that increased expenditures, as anticipated, are largely due to increased State requirements. Also cited was an expected loss of personnel in the welfare department if proposed salary increases cannot be granted to more 'nearly match the salary schedules of some other counties. Royal also stressed the fact that, if the three-cent cut in levy should be allowed to stand an increase could be expected in other county tax rates. He pointed out that the Welfare Board, by caring for all hospital cases, akes a tax burden off of th'reo other county funds: The poor re- ief funds of various townships, the Memorial Hospital operating 'und, and the county general fund. Miller indicated that he considered the surplus funds held by the Welfare Board at the end of each fiscal year were too high, and stated that any expenditures not covered by the recommended .ax rate could well be cared for out of this surplus. Royal con;ended that the current budget, and tax proposal, contained "no 'at whatsoever," and that there would be no new addition to this surplus as Miller contended was usual almost every year. The State Tax Board commissioners will devote much of Tuesday's hearing to consideration of school budgets. Apportion (Continued from Page One) held last Saturday with Federal Judge William E. Steckler, a member of a' three-judge panel which ordered the legislature to reapportion by Dec. 1. The leaders believed tne plans they had worked out might have failed to meet the criteria of the federal judges, who had served notice previously they expect the U.S. Constitution to be strictly adhered to in line with a U. S. Supreme Court "one man, 6ne vote" ruling. House Democrats elected Rep. William E. Babincsak of Munster as majority caucus chairman, filling a vacancy created by the death recently of Rep. James S. Hunter, D-East Chicago. Babincsak defeated Rep. John F. Neff, D-Indianapolis, in a showdown vote that was "fairly close," according to House Speaker Richard Bodine. The Democratic caucuses were among four separate meetings of lawmakers held behind closed, doors as the Democrats tried to settle on plans they can enact speedily in the special session. Works on Address Meanwhile, Governor Branigin, who called the 94th General Assembly into a record-breaking second special session in the same year as a regular session, worked in his office on an address he will make before a joint session of House and Senate this afternoon. ' Two Bills A Must The lawmakers have as their prime responsibility the production of two separate laws, one containing a House reapportionment plan and the other, a Senate map which will meet requirements of the federal court. A three-judge federal court panel gave the Indiana Legislature until Dec. 1 to produce a plan which would meet U.S. constitutional requirements for equal protection. The same lawmakers had written a new re apportionment law at their regular session but the federal panel held this plan to be unconstitutional even before it was ever used principally on the grounds that heavily-populated counties were linked with smaller counties in joint districts. In addition to reapportionment, Democratic leaders said the special session will receive a proposed amendment to the federal Constitution on presidential succession. The amendment was authored by Sen. Birch Bayh, D-Ind., and has already been ratified by eight states. Also likely to be brought before this special session will be a request to give subpena powers to a legislative committee which is beginning a probe of the securities business in Indiana. Such subpena power may be sought for all legislative investigative committees. None Hurt In Five Accidents Five traffic accidents were investigated by local police over the weekend and this morning No one was injured.

If convicted, Miller can be sentenced to a maximum penalty of five years in prison and $10,000 fine. Miller, who was classified 1-A by his draft board Sept. 3, burned what he called to be his draft card while standing on a truck before hundreds of spectators near an armed _forces induction station in New.
