In the fiscal year which ended June 30, 1965 the state park in Ripley County ranked eighth in paid attendance among Indiana state parks. From July, 1964 to June 30, 1965, according to State Conservation Department statistics, there were 105,125 paid admissions at Versailles State Park. The total attendance, including children under 12, was 202,649. When the figures for the current season are compiled, a new peak will be shown, as summer attendance in 1965 has exceeded that of 1964. Versailles State Park has a special advantage in the fact that it is the largest unit in the Indiana state park system. This means that future expansion will be possible. The greatest gain in paid admissions in the fiscal year was recorded by Raccoon Lake State Recreational Area in Parke County. The other six most popular state parks have an advantage which Versailles State Park nor Raccoon Lake dp not possess. They have hotel accommodations with , dining rooms. Additional of this type of facilities would greatly expand paid admissions to Versailles State Park. A major portion of the traffic to 'Versailles State Park uses U. S. 421 from Greensburg to proceed to Ripley .County. Visitors travel on Indiana 3, Indiana 46 and Interstate 74 to reach Versailles. The park at Versailles was established by the national park service in 1934. It was improved during subsequent years before it was taken over bv Indiana on April 6, 1943. Since then, it has been a unit of the Indiana state park system. In 1947, Decatur County, cooperated with Ripley and Dearborn Counties in appropriating $6,000 to acquire land for a lake development. This commitment of county funds has yielded returns in the form of additional business in Decatur County. The lake at the state park was ready for use in the summer of 1957. Construction of the lake was delayed for several years, due to litigation in connection with acquisition of land. The dam to impound waters of Laughery Creek was dedicated in the fall of 1956. At that time, Versailles State Park was attracting some 20,000 visitors annual. An official of the Indiana Conseravtion Department, speaking at the dedication of the dam, predicted that in the years ahead Versailles State Park would be visited by over 200,000 persons a year. That prediction was realized in the fiscal year of 1964-65. The future of Versailles State Park appears to be promising. While additional facilities will be required, ••there is ample space for expansion. More and more families are seeking camping accommodations, and these can be secured at Versailles State Park.

After cleaning out the drawer, 'tearing out the phone line, in the office and the public address system lines, the bandits took the two employes—the only ones in the store at the time—back to the dairy cooler. Shut Off Cooler One of the bandits asked Adams where the switch was to shut off the cooling unit. After shutting it off, they ordered Mrs. Brim and Adams into the cooler and locked the door, not realizing there was a safety latch inside the door. Mrs. Brim said they waited a minute or two before opening the locker door and calling authorities on a phone at the rear of the building. She recalled that one of the bandits also threatened to kill her if a burglar alarm was sounded. Mrs. Brim and Adams had been on duty since 10 p.' m. when the two men wearing khaki color uniforms entered. Both were described as about 30-35 years of age. One was described as five feet, eight inches and weighing about 190 pounds and the other as six feet, one inch and weighing about 180 pounds. She said one was what she would term "a courteous talking man" and the other a "rough" talker. Both were continually telling us to hurry up, she added.
