This was made possible through a bequest to th'e cemetery, provided by the wills of the late Samuel A. and Myrta Frazee Bonner. The late Mr. Bonner served for many years on the board of cemetery trustees, holding the office of president. Prior to his death, he had indicated that one of the cemetery improvements should be in its road ways. Cemetery trustees took fitting action in providing a memorial which the late Mr. Bonner would have approved. Not all cemetery roads could be paved in the sum of over $6,000 which the board allocated to highway improvement. To pave remaining roads will cost in excess of §5,000 additional. Cemetery trustees have indicated an interest in blacktopping additional segments of highway, if funds from voluntary donations are received. If cemetery lot owners are interested — and they should be — they can make a voluntary donation to South Park Cemetery Association. South Park Cemetery is the final resting place of many ' individuals, who have been prominent in the life of this community. Col. Thomas Hendricks, founder of Greensburg, is buried there. When the body of Joe Welsh, first Decatur County man to pay the supreme sacrifice in World War I, was returned to the United States interment was in South Park Cemetery. Throughout the years South Park Cemetery has been well-maintained. With its trees, monuments, markers and overall design, it is one of the excellent cemeteries in this section of Indiana. And, it is one of the most beautiful. Replacement of the stone roads in heavily-used areas with a blacktop surface was needed. The Bonner bequest made this improvement possible. The mausoleum containing a chapel was made possible in 1937 through a bequest in the will of the late Anna C. Grover. To maintain a cemetery in the condition of South Park requires funds. The only revenue which the cemetery association has is through the sale of lots, supplemented by any donations and bequests. The cemetery has a fulltime superintendent of maintenance and several assistants. Donations on the part of lotowners on an adequate scale could make additional improvement of cemetery roads a reality.

The move will be considered at a special meeting of NATO defense ministers in Paris on Nov. 26 and 27. France has served notice she I will not participate in the talks Other countries not interested and not expected to attend are Portugal, Iceland and Luxembourg. McNamara Visit Scheduled The plan for a NATO nuclear committee "»vas originated by the United States in an effort to give its allies a voice in nuclear strategy and palicy. U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara is expected to visit London in advance of the Paris meeting to consult British leaders about the plan. The defense ministers will report their findings to the full NATO ministerial council at its annual conference, also in Paris, on Dec. 16-18. Britain supports the U.S. plan, hoping it may prove an aceptable alternative to proposals for a mixed-manned nuclear fleet (MLF) under NATO and the British plan for an Atlantic nuclear force (ANF). The late President John F. Kennedy sponsored the MLF proposals. , West Germany Vital The sources said West Germany's attitude will play a vital role hi reaching a decision on the controversial but urgent problem of nuclear sharing within NATO. Bonn has not yet committed itself on the new plan. Looming in the background of the Paris talks will be the critical need for an agreement with the Russians on how to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons. Moscow has insisted it will not enter such an agreement unless the West drops the MLF and ANF nrojects.

Approve Funds For Cyclotron Would Be Located Near I. U. Campus INDIANAPOLIS (UPI)—First steps toward building a "next generation cyclotron" near the Indiana University campus at Bloomington were taken Wednesday by Governor Branigin. Branigin approved a state appropriation of $1 million to be used for designing the preparation of a model of a device described as likely to be the first and largest of its type in the world. The cyclotron would cost $5 to ,.7.5 million. From one-half to two-thirds of the cost would be defrayed by federal fund contributions if the project is approved in Washington, Branigin said. Branigin disclosed the approval of the preliminary appropriation after a meeting late Wednesday afternoon with Dr. Elvis J. Stahr, president of I. U. The governor said the 1965 Legislature paved the way for the start of the project by approving the appropriation as part of the university's 1965-66 budget. The cyclotron would be placed in a building about two miles from the campus. State funds would be used to build the structure, but the federal government was expected to pay for the cyclotron. The device was described as important in pushing the state farther into the forefront of scientific research. Dr. Dan W. Miller, head of the physics department at IU, hailed Branigin's approval of the appropriation as of "tremendous importance" in bringing the project into being. While the cyclotron has no bearing on the $280 million Atomic Energy Commission nuclear research facility Indiana hopes will be approved for a site on Eagle Creek northwest of Indianapolis, state officials including B'ranigin anticipate it would provide an additional attraction in the state's favor. The IU project would be only one-tenth the capacity of the AEC project—200 million electron volts as contrasted with the 200 billion potential of the AEC's facility. But it still would be the first'and largest of its type. Branigin's action in approving the appropriation leaves only one stumbling block in the way of actual use of the money, the approval of the State Budget Agency. However, Branigin's approval was seen as tantamount to endorsement by the agency. 17-Year-Oid Hoosier Is Viet Victim WASHINGTON (UPI) — The Defense Department Wednesday announced the deaths of two 17-year-old soldiers in Viet Nam Fighting, one of them a Fort Wayne, Ind., resident. The department said Pfc. Terry T. Wright, Fort Wayne, and Pfc. James C. Ward, Ft. Bliss, Tex., were killed in action Oct. 10 and 11. The deaths of the youths were the first for American servicemen under the age of 18 in fighting which has claimed 399 American lives. The deaths also led to a proposal that the department prevent the movement of 17-year- olds to the Southeast Asian na- ion. Wright was the son of Mrs. Genieve Hayes of Fort Wayne, and would have celebrated his 18th birthday anniversary Dec. 23. Ward would have been 18 Jan. 26. Both young men were members of the 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile) formed at Ft. Benning, Ga., last summer. They were eligible for combat under the law requiring '.at least four months training before being sent overseas. The Fort Wayne youth died while on a search-and-destroy mission in Viet Nam and had enlisted in the service just after his 17th birthday. He reportedly arrived in South Viet Nam a month before his death Oct. 10. TRAVELING CAT ROSS, England (UPI)—A pet cat took three months but found lis way back to his master's home 75 miles away.
