Corbin Times Tribune (Newspaper) - October 22, 1972, Corbin, Kentucky In Orbin it it i a or tune vol. 80 number 249 Cumberland Falls Corbin Kentucky sunday morning october 22, 1972 10 cents a copy 16 pages today Raveling by John l. Crawford Bible thought the lord is nigh unto them that Are of a broken heart and Saveth such As be of a contrite spirit psalm 34 18. The Hills will Likely be at their prettiest this weekend. Trees and shrubs Are rapidly becoming decked out in their Gaudy fall dress. A riot of color will Greet you As you look out upon our mountains and valleys. Its not too Early to begin to plan to set your clocks and watches Back one hour october 29th. That a when Daylight time ends for 1972. The easiest Way to handle the situation at least for me is to change All the clocks and watches saturday night october 28, just before you go to bed. Then you get up next morning on the Correct time. It now looks As if the big South Fork National River and recreation area in Kentucky and Tennessee is assured. This has been a project of senator John Sherman and he sent Bob Blair a Telegram a few Days ago stating that the Senate and House appropriations committees had agreed to a supplemental appropriations action providing for $50,000 to initiate planning on the project. This action provides funds with which to begin work during the current fiscal year. Senator Cooper sought the establishment of the big South Fork National River and recreation area As a substitute for the devils jump dam which had been turned Down repeatedly by Congress. Back Early in 1932 this newspaper and the Corbin chamber of Commerce sponsored jointly a drive to establish forsythia As corbins official Flower. The drive was successful and the two sponsors provided shrubs for a Large number of citizens to Plant on their lawns. The results Are still to be seen in the Early Spring when the shrubs Send Forth their clusters of blossoms in the shape of Golden Bells another name commonly used. Maybe it is time to reopen this subject and to make a concerted drive to get at least one forsythia Shrub in every Yard or on every Lawn in Corbin. Forsythia can be blended in almost any Type of planting. It could be used As another method of identifying Corbin.

Of Barton Mill Road was crowned 1972 football Homecoming Queen of Corbin High school during halftime ceremonies of the Corbin Laurel county game Friday night at Campbell Field. The new Queen is a senior and succeeds miss Robbie Baker. By by Ramsey associated press writer Frankfort by. A two weeks before the nov. 7 elections the overriding question in Kentucky seems to be the Likely Republican presidential margin and How it will affect the Senate race. That president Nixon will carry the state handily against sen. George Mcgovern is a widespread Assumption among prospective voters politicians in both major parties and so called experts. But the Senate contest Between Democrat Walter Dee Huddleston and Republican Louie Nunn is another matter. Preliminary figures from a recent professional poll sponsored by the courier journal and the Louisville times indicated Nixon had a 2 to 1 Lead but that Nunn barely led Huddleston despite an apparently lengthy presidential Cattail perhaps 200,000 votes if the figures Are translated that Way. The poll is the Only reliable Independent Survey to surface so far. Both major senatorial nominees have claimed leads in their polls but have not Given details. However it now is More than newspaper reports Thieu has rejected interim settlement by George Esper associated press writer Saigon a a Saigon newspaper controlled by the presidential Palace reported today that president Nguyen Van Thieu and his National Security Council have rejected any interim Indochina agreement for a limited peace. Tin song said that after three meetings with Henry a. Kissinger the South vietnamese told the . Presidential adviser they will not accept any temporary peace solution.

Tin song is financed by Thieu a personal aide Hoang due Nha and for that reason if often regarded As reflecting the official views of the president ads Palace. Kissinger had been expected to meet for the fourth time with Thieu today and then return to Washington. But by dusk he was still reported at the . Embassy and there had been no meetings with Thieu. But the presidential envoy met for three hours today with foreign minister Tran Van Lam. The meeting started in the morning and ended Well after noon. Earlier Lam attended a Cabinet meeting called by Thieu. The . Embassy has refused to disclose Kissinger a movements in Advance and has kept newsmen and photographers from getting near him since he arrived wednesday night. President Nixon a National Security adviser flew into Saigon after meeting with North vietnamese negotiators in Paris. Since sunday there have been Many conferences among . And South vietnamese officials in Saigon generating speculation of a possible breakthrough in the stalled peace talks. There has been no official word on the meetings substantive issues. But some reports indicate the talks Are entered on arranging an interim agreement which could mean a limited peace Deal followed by further negotiations toward a lasting settlement. The main Issue appears to be the Viet congas insistence on the ouster of Thieu and a coalition government that would organize general elections. Thieu has told government officials South Vietnam will never accept a coalition government. A French correspondent broadcast a report from Saigon Friday that an a unusually Well informed source a told him elements of a cease fire would be announced by nov. 1. Marcel it continued to Page 12 Greenland Baptist opens revival a revival will begin at the Greenland Baptist Church Falls hwy., at 7 . Monday. The evangelist will be Ralph Leach. A month since the samplings were taken and it May be significant that Huddleston had barely begun his Media Campaign to establish name identification and a solid image a things Nunn already possesses. Whether Kentucky democrats Are More receptive now to Mcgovern is problematical but party sources contend much of the hostility is mellowing that in some areas the Mcgovern and regular democratic groups Are friendlier and above All that Huddleston is succeeding on his own Hook. Kentucky is one of the states that makes it easy to vote the straight party ticket a a flick of the voting machine lever does it. Ordinarily this operates to the advantage of the majority party a the democrats who out Register the gop 2 to 1. But this time it could operate to the detriment of Huddleston. Two More questions seem to emerge from the Basic one of one car Accident kills Man a Whitley county Man was pronounced dead on arrival at the local Hospital late Friday afternoon As a result of injuries sustained in a one car Accident on Kentucky 92, two Miles East of Williamsburg. The Whitley county sheriffs office listed the victim As . Hamlin 22, Siler route Williamsburg. A passenger in the car Charles Archie Croley 21, also of Siler route was admitted to the local Hospital where his condition was listed As serious. According to witnesses the car driven by Hamlin left the Highway went Down an embankment and struck a tree. Both men were thrown from the car. Whether Huddleston can overcome a massive Nixon margin. One involves the history of ticket splitting in Kentucky. The last time it happened was in 1967 when Wendell Ford became lieutenant governor and Nunn governor. But a Senate race entails different factors than a governors contest else Kentucky would not have had mostly democratic governors and gop senators the past two decades. There seems to be no Handy yardsticks from the recent past on the split ticket attitudes of kentuckians in a Senate race during a presidential year. The second question involves not a real split but simply omitting the vote for president while casting a ballot for senator and reports from areas such As Western Kentucky indicate this could be a key approach for Huddleston. In other words the anti Mcgovern democrats would vote neither for him for Nixon but would press the lever for Huddleston assuming they Are motivated to get out in considerable numbers. Another pattern of recent general elections that at first glance encourages democrats is the seeming Peak of any re bulls Eye maybe but it must be Picasso a version of a Bull.

Corbin gets two fire Calls Are answered by Oak Grove the Oak Grove Volunteer fire department answered two Calls Friday. Friday morning they were called to the Home of Darrell Rose on devils Creek and confined the Blaze to the area around a Chimney. Friday night they answered a Call to the Home of Emerson Jones Cumberland Falls Highway where a fire had started in the basement. The Blaze was confined to one room of the House. Revenue sharing figures released congressman Tim Lee Carter has released figures of the amounts due Corbin and other areas in the fifth congressional District from the Revenue sharing act recently passed by Congress. According to this report Corbin will receive $117,442 Williamsburg $67,000 and Whitley county $82,500. The total coming to the county and these two cities will be $226,942. Congressman Carters report shows that Corbin will receive $22,558 As its share of the Knox county allotment. This will bring corbins total to $140,000. The City of Barbourville will receive $25,000, and the Knox county allotment is $134,558. This brings the total amount coming to Knox and the two cities to $134,558. London a allotment is $60,000. Laurel county government will receive $114,000, bringing the total coming to this county and its county seat to $174,000. The three counties will receive a total of $575,500 under the Revenue sharing act. Continued to Page 12 publican under 500,000 votes. But this has its perils. Although retiring sen. John Sherman Cooper amassed a a Only 485,000 votes in 1966 he won by More than 200,000. Although sen. Marlow Cook obtained the same number in 1968 he won by Only 35,000. Such figures might mean Nixon could win by a landslide without reaching 500,000 votes if democrats stayed away from Mcgovern on a mass basis. The consuming goal of Huddleston and his supporters seemingly is to get democrats to the polls for him and if no Nixon sweep develops All the better for them. Mcgovern has issued new charge by the associated press with Money getting More attention As the 1972 presidential Campaign nears an end Democrat George Mcgovern has suggested that president Nixon is ready to impose stricter wage controls on workers after nov. 7. A already there Are reports that the White House is ready to impose stricter wage controls after the election a Mcgovern said in a nationally televised speech Friday night. The democratic presidential nominee said that every time the Nixon administration a has faced an important economic Choice they have picked the policy that is right for the few but wrong for the president signed Revenue sharing legislation that will return $30.2 billion in Federal tax Revenue to state and local governments in the next five years. During the signing Friday at Philadelphia a historic Independence Hall the president declared Are giving our government Back to the people police kept several thousand Antiwar and anti Nixon demonstrators away from the ceremony and 30 of the protesters were taken into custody. Back in Washington democrats for Nixon chief John b. Connally said said in a half hour to add a a the Mcgovern defense budget is the most dangerous document Ever seriously put Forth by a presidential candidate in this Century a the former Treasury Secretary said in a half hour to and. Frank Mankiewicz Mcgovern a National political director called the broadcast a a Yar Ful of lies distortion and the democratic vice presi continued to Page 12 half a loaf South Central Bell gets half the rate increase it requested by William Bradford associated press writer Frankfort by. Apr South Central Bell finally has won a Long requested Telephone increase in Kentucky but Only 49 per cent of the $25.7 million it had requested. Kentucky a Public service commission granted the company a $15.2 million rate increase Friday just slightly More than the $14.8 million it sought two years ago. That rate increase was rejected in its entirety by the pc on dec. 31, 1970, a denial which was upheld in Franklin circuit court and still is pending in the court of appeals. The pc allowed South Central Bell to put the full $25.7 million raise it requested in a new application nearly this year into effect in March on an emergency basis. The company now will have to refund to its customers the difference Between the higher rates actually granted now and those allowed in an emergency basis. The commission ordered those refunds plus 6 per cent interest to be made within 60 Days. One major aspect of the Case which the company lost was its request for a $45.9 million a attrition allowance to offset rising construction costs the pc denied that entirely saying it was not within the spirit of National economic policies which now Are seeking to control inflation. The company did win its Point on using a year end rate base however instead of averaging the base Over an entire year As opponents of the rate boost had advocated. A major opponent of the increase who urged use of an average base was asst. Atty. Gen. Laura Murrell of the attorney general a consumer Protection division. Averaging the rate base Over the entire year would have dropped $14.3 million from the base. The pc order directed South Central Bell to a immediately accelerated its improvement program to extend its service to unnerved customers and to upgrade its service to present customers. In particular it asked for the total elimination of eight party service As soon As practicable. Arguments on the need for upgrading such service was part of the reason the pc had allowed the company to put its full requested rate increase into effect on an emergency basis last March. The commission also approved the company a proposal for increasing the number of groups a which reflect the number of telephones in an Exchange and thus the rate customers pay a from 12 to 40. Under the automatic regrouping principle used by South Central Bell the rates for All customers within an Exchange Rise or fall As the number of telephones each can Call at local rates increases or decreases. A the evidence is quite Clear a the pc order said a that the amount of increased Revenue derived from regrouping since 1957 the year of the last rate increase granted to South Central Bell has been relatively insignificant. A it is arguable that the a value of services concept one basis of justification for regrouping May be lacking in the most persuasive evidentiary sic support a the order noted. A however a it continued a it is quite apparent that one result of presently authorized regrouping is that there is a very significant difference in rates charged in cities and communities of comparable size for comparable service. A we Are of the opinion that the applicants customers should Bear a fair share of the Cost for comparable service a the order said adding that the pc was granting the company a request for that reason. The pc allowed South Central Bell an 8.75 per cent rate of return on its investment which it said would give it a 10.9 per cent rate of return on its equity. The company had asked a 12 to 12.5 per cent return on equity while other witnesses primarily those called in opposition had suggested a return of 8.8 to 10.5 per cent. The pc order allows the company to raise its Price for installing a new Telephone in a Home to $10 instead of to the $22 pan Nativi the Post for in stalling a new Telephone in a business will be raised to $20. The rate increase granted by the pc Means that the Basic monthly charge for a private residential Telephone service now will Range from $4.80 in such cities As Beattyville up to $7.60 in Louisville. The new rates for other selected Kentucky cities will be $5.15 in Harlan and Paris $5.20 in Maysville $5.25 in Danville $5.30 in Winchester $5.40 in Mayfield Corbin and Henderson $5.50 in Murray and Madi Sonville. Also $5.60 in Frankfort Richmond and Hopkinsville $5.90 in Bowling Green and Paducah and $6.00 in Owensboro
