Kokomo Tribune (Newspaper) - December 15, 1967, Kokomo, Indiana VOL. 118-NQ. 102 CITY EDITION Greek Government Declares There Is 'Absolute Order' THE KOKOMO TRIBUNE KOKOAAO, IND., FRIDAY, DEC. 15, 1967 ASSOCIATED NIWS ASSOCIATED PKESS PHOTOS NEWSSTAND PRICE 10 CENTS ATHENS (AP) -The Greek military government declared today that "abso- lute order" prevails throughout the country two days after King Constan- tine s abortive attempt t'o oust the mili- tary dictatorship. Brig. Stylianos Patakos, one of the junta members, said: "Let the enemies of Greece be informed, and all those who may have doubted, that the entire Greek people are supporting regenera- tive efforts of the national govern- ment." Both the United States and Britain were taking new looks at their relations with the military regime. The US Slate Department said it was withhold- ing recognition in the wake of the young king's ouster, while Britain held that its recognition was invalidated because the chief of stale to whom its ambassador was accredifed-the king-had fled the country. The junta announced it had reports from the provinces (hat absolute order prevailed throughout the country. Life was back to normal in Athens. Tanks and troops {hat took up Wednes- day in the early stages of the king's counter coup were gone from the streets. A wet drizzle dampened Christmas shopping but banks and businesses op- erated normally. The big questions on all sides were "What's the king going to do and "Has he said anything so Constantino and his family stayed in seclusion in Rome and gave no public sign where or when they would go from there. Rumors circulated in Rome that the king had been in telephone contact with the junta in Athens. There was speculation that the king and Col. George Papadopoulos, the junta strong- man who made himself premier shortly before the king fled, might be discuss- ing some way for Constantine to come back. At noon the king and his Danish-born wife were still in the Greek Embassy in where they took refuge on arriving in Rome at dawn Thursday. Against a background of deep official concern in Washington because of Greece's position on the southeast flank .of the North Atlantic Treaty Organiza- tion's defense line, Ambassador Phillips Talbot, the U.S. envoy in Athens, began with the military gov- (Conlinued on Page Two) Nearly Behind '66 Pace Yule Drive Slips Badly The Good Fellows drive to raise mo- ney for needy children trailed off badly Friday morning as total donations add- ed up to nearly less than what had been contributed a year aeo on this date. "Our totals this year have been run- ning almost consistently behind our to- tals last year on corresponding a spokesman said, "and although 19G6 was a good year, it set no records. We .have now fallen so far behind last year's pace that it appears aid to needy children this year will only be a token affair." Donations, which, should be brought or sent into The Tribune, are needed to purchase clothing, and treats that will put smiles on the faces of economically deprived children whose Christmas stockings would otherwise be empty The Good Fellows still held out liope the community will rally to the cause of the faltering campaign, especially be- cause there is still lime to rescue it. "If donations arrive in record amounts during the last nine days of the drive, we can still bo sure of answering all the appeals for help that we have been a spokesman said. "Otherwise, some of us will have the unhappy task of telling many young- sters (hat Santa won't have time to visit them this year." The Good Fellows appreciate the help they have received thus far, and sug- gest that persons who have already do- nated to make an effort to talk about the campaign with friends and relatives who have not yet contributed Every lit- tle bit helps, the spokesman noted. In anticipation that the community will loosen Us money-belt in time to make the drive a success, the Good Fel- lows are still accepting appeals on be- half of needy children, and will do so through next Monday. They cannot ac- cept appeals with postmarks later than Monday. Appeals should include as much infor- mation as possible about the youngsters being proposed for help. Names and ad- dresses must be correct if Good Fellows are to respond to the appeals, which can be brought or sent to The Tribune business office. Unfortunately, some appeals have ar- rived with addresses either incorrect or omitted. One such letter arrived (his week from a mother of four children two of whom were named Joe and Don- ald. The mother said they lived on the 50 block of East Jackson, but investiga- tion disclosed that they didn't. If the mother will contact The Tribune with (Cunlinucd on Page Two) Good Fellows List Previously In memory of Spencer Robert Estle...................

The bill would increase Social Securi- ty benefits billion and hike payroll taxes billion during ils first full year of operation, 19G9. The 24 million Americans now on the rolls would begin receiving next March Social Security checks increased by at least 13 per cent. The controversial welfare provisions cutting back on aid to families with de- pendent children, were called harsh and regressive by many senators. They said they had assurances from Johnson, who is expected to sign the measure, that efforts will be made to change these next year. The bill also would put limits on the rapidly growing medicnid program that provides health benefits' for indigent families. _ The Senate actually passed the bill tnursday when Long, Louisiana Demo- crat and majority whip, caught oppo- nents of the welfare provisions off guard and only about a dozen senators were on the floor. Long's move aimed :it heading off any filibuster by opponents, who include Democratic Sens. Robert F. Kennedy of New York, Kred R. Harris of Oklahoma and Joseph D. Tydings of Maryland. The Senate later voted to reconsider the action and agreed to a second vote today. To that extent, Longs move worked because it committed the Sen- ate to a specific voting deadline. Long's action drew sharp criticism with Kennedy and others saying they had been assured they would have a chance to speak on the bill before pas- sage. Senate Democratic Lender Mike Mansfield, who was in his office on oth- er Senate business at the lime, said lat- er: "Tliere is such a thing as decorum and dignity in this body." And Kennedy said bluntly: "I thought I was dealing with men." Kennedy directed his ire at Long and Sen. Robert Byrd, DW.Va., the No 2 and No. 3 figures respectively in the Senate Democratic leadership.

North Vietnam said four American planes were shot down. The U.S. Command said B5 missions were flown against the North Thursday The major effort was a big Air Force strike on (he most vital bridge in Ha- noi, coordinated with Air Force and Navy raids on Communist missile sites In the heavily defended belt just be- low Hanoi and its port of Haiphong American jets blasted M installations' housing Soviet-built SAM missiles. The missiles criss-crossed the sky, but re- luming pilots said they saw none of them hitting American planes.. The break in the weather became evi- dent about noon Thursday, and eager operations officers hastily remade flight schedules to pour in planes from Thailand, Soulh Vietnam and two ear- ners in the Tonkin Gulf. Knowing that Red defenses would be bmlt up after the long period of weather protection, extra jets were sent along to attack the antiaircraft installations and as high altitude cover against the MIG17S and MIG2ls of the small North Vietnamese air force. Ground action flared in three sensi- tive battle areas of Soulh along the Cambodian border, at the de- militarized zone and along the central coastal plains, where the pitched battles of the past few weeks show no sign of abating. On the coastal plains, U.S. headquar- ters reported at least HI Communists killed in two sharp battles. In one, American infantrymen caught a company of about 150 North Viet- namese regulars about 23 miles south of Da Nang and killed 56 Thursday. In the second, a combined American and South Vietnamese force came to the rescue of a village where a South Viet- namese milila platoon had been over- run. In Hie running fight that began Thursday and continued today, 55 Com- munist soldiers had been killed at last report.

Cole-Laycr-Trumble Co. will do all of the field work on the reassessment and make recommendations, but it will still be the responsibility of the assessors, Keller and Center Township Assessor Herbert A.
