Ten Cents Copy The Clare Sentin Fourteen Pages Clare Michigan, Thursday August-_87 1968 90th Year Sentinel "Sayings" Paradise is not a locality -- it's a state of mind. New Series, Vol. 76, No, 50 These Are Crimes—Not Pranks, Police Say Clare police are taking about the most serious view possible about a recent wave of vandalism and malicious destruction here. A • sober faced Elry Tice, Clare chief, said "Tuesday that tampering.with the patrol car caused major damage and disabled it for a day while other acts of willful destruction include removing sluice boards in Lake Shamrock dam, opening of several fire hydrants that drained quantities of water from the elevated storage tank, -and other less serious acts. ' The Clare Police Department confidently expect that arrests and charges will be' made when their investigations are finished, Felony warrants will be asked for at least two of the offenses. Damage to the patrol car was caused by sugar or s o m • e substance being poured into the gas tank. The car was out of service for repairs on Tuesday after the tampering apparently on Monday night. The sneaky vandalism at Lake Shamrock was also discovered after Monday night. Whoever was guilty this time broke locks protecting the dam and removed sluice boards. Escaping water lowered the lake level a reported three feet. Most serious and dangerous of all the vandalism this week was the opening of fire hydrants and causing precious water to drain away. This is being regarded as a deliberate act to render the city helpless in the event of fire or other emergency requiring the use of water. Tice told The Sentinel, ' .'If these acts are to annoy or embarrass the Police Department, or if someone is trying to settle a grudge -it is going to backfire against the offenders and all violators. "We tolerant are not taking a view. Nobody thinks these acts are games or pranks." Police are not overlooking the possibility that a recent hardened attitude against unlawful noise of auto and motorbike exhausts, -and the ticketing of many offenders might be an underlying cause if some one wants to retaliate.

Could Swim That One Stroke Needed Paul Koch of E. Clarabella Road is more of a hero than most of us and yet he shuns the glory he's getting for saving two lives August 4 at Shamrock Lake. While watching several children swimming and wading just west of the ' beach, he saw a commotion in the water where a teen age girl had waded ' out too far and slipped into deep water. The girl who could not swim was being assisted by her mother, also a non swimmer and the two had already disappeared beneath the water, -struggling.. Koch said he forgot that he cannot swim either, and in the need for quick action he didn't remember he was fully dressed and With his billfold in his pocket and watch on his wrist. He waded to where the two victims were hanging on to each other and pulled them to safety—lucky that they didn't panic and pull him out over his head too . The few who witnessed the rescue thought it turned an almost sure tragedy into a good ending. None of the three apparently suffered ill effects. But Koch jokes about, "a 62 year-old grandfather being able to save a drowning victim, and the idea it was an heroic act". He has a damp billfold and soaked clothes to show for his first time in the water since trying a swimming stroke or two about 30 years ago. Proposed changes in Michigan's fishing regulations for 1969 were informally aired before the Conservation Commission last week at its meeting in Lansing. The recom .tended measures, most of them designed to simplify t he state's complex fishing rules, are scheduled for formal Commission action during its September 5-6 meeting in Cadillac. As outlined by Dave Borgeson, the Conservation Department's trout and salmon specialist, most of the proposals should not have job by a tree trimmer in a significant impact on Big Rapids halted the march Michigan's fishery, except of record days just 48 hours to put some angling on a Safety Pays | -1823 Days Consumers Power's Alma Division safety record of no lost time accidents seemed as if it might go on and on, -maybe forever.

"We are aware," said Borgeson, "that there are some fishing exceptions to o.. u r reconT.m_Tidatipns H_de_*rn_y not set well yfitft all anglers.. However in trying to simplify things for them, we have put main emphasis on covering the general rule rather than the exceptions." In the liberal vein, the Conservation Department is calling for the elimination of the closed fishing Agnew More Zero Than Party Asset Richard Milliman, president of Northern Communications, Inc. owning The Clare Sentinel, The Crawford County Avalanche, and Osceola County Herald took an assignment for a newspaper and radio chain to cover the National Conventions for both Republican and Democratic parties*. The Sentinel is proud to bring you his personal observations on the work and responsibilities of both convention delegates,-and those who labor behind the scenes to organize the massive operations . . , and report activities to readers back home. -Ed. MIAMI BEACH—Whenever a national political convention ends, the order of business for a convention watcher is: (1) heave a sigh of relief; (2) rest and recuperate; and (3) then sit down and try to figure it out. I've already done Number 1; I'm in the process of Number 2- and herewith offer an attempt at Number 3. The over-riding impression that sticks with me from the Republican National Convention here in Miami Beach is that it was considerably different from the 1964 convention in San Francisco. In' 1964, the key element was intensity. People felt intensely about water, t h e nominee — either for him or against him. They felt intensely about the issues, particularly civil rights and political extremism. The delegate arm-twisting was intense. The arguments were intense. The bitterness surrounding Goldwater' s nomination was intense, . But intensity was missing from Miami. The differences surrounding the candidates — Nixon, Rockefeller, Reagan—caused no intense divisions among their backers. The differences came mainly over which of the three w&s the best; those who backed Rockefeller, for example, argued generally that he could do a better job than Nixon in getting elected and in filling the office. The same generally is true of Reagan backers. When Nixon won, thos. who had earlier opposed him jumped out no windows; they tightened their 'belts and got ready to pitch in. The differences were more pragmatic than idealogical; even the top emotional issue of our day — Vietnam— created no schism. Nixon conducted a professional competent campaign for the nomination. He made few if any mistakes And then he picked Gov. Agnew as his running mate, thus surprising almost everybody in Miami Beach and angering more than a' few. But the delegates, very properly, ratified their candidate's choice. They should have; after all, he's the guy Nixon wanted, and Nixon is the guy the delegates wanted. Two points seemed at the base of delegate disenchantment with Agnew's selection. First, Gov. Agnew Sen. Gold- -'appears to add exactly zero . in the attractiveness of the ticket; he's more of a cipher than an asset. And second, his choice smacks darkly of a deal with southern delegates, epitomized by Sen. Thurmond of South Carolina, who headed Nixon's forces in the south, With all the skill that Nixon has displayed so far this year, it is difficult to conclude that he would throw away the assets that a different running mate than Agnew might bring to the Nixon ticket. And in this topsy-turvy political year, Gov. Agnew — or Anagosto- Continued on Page 8 season on trout and salmon in the Great Lakes. There is no biological reason for ending that season November 30 -and other Great Lakes states have agreed that the closure isn't necessary. Department fisheries men" are suggesting that the state's regular inland trout season be extended through September 30. Further, there would be no closed season on trout in inland lakes other than- designated trout lakes. "On the restrictive side of the Department's proposals, fisheries men would like to see a uniform May 30-February 28 season on muskellunge, northern pike walleyes, and saugers. May 30 now marks the start of black bass fishing in most waters and if approved as a kick-off date for these other species, it would .give Michigan a ..state-wide opener for tafe. ir}g.*the state's larger warm -water fish. Shifting back to its efforts to simplify fishing rules, the Department is recommending that creel and possession limits be made the same in all waters for trout and salmon. As recommended, the new creel and possession quota for trout and salmon would be 5, singly or combined. Along the same lines toward more uniformity and ■simplicity, Department fisheries men favor having the creel and possession limit on northern pike, walleyes, saugers, and black bass standardized at 5, singly or combined, in all of Michigan's waters.' Under a proposed size limit change, the Department has set its sights "on a 10-inch minimum for all species of trout an_ salmon, except brook trout, in . inland waters. It is recommending a 7-inch size limit for brook trout, consistent with the biological fact that this species doesn't grow too large and matures at a smaller size than other trout. Again for the sake of better protection, where it is needed, the Department is asking for a spearing ban on muskellunge and lake trout. It was .pointed out that muskies are vulnerable to spearing In inland' waters and.this poses a worrisome threat to limited populations of these fish. New Firm Locates Here Ken Barnes, manager of the Clare Chamber of Commerce has reported a new industry moving this week into a building at 307 Maple recently vacated by Clare Fabricated. Plastics.

This young nanny goat wasn't a prize winner at the Clare County Fair (Her owner, Jeannine Bolle just brought her along for fun), but 4-H'ers voted the pretty little nanny a prize for "personality". She found a place in the parade and loved the cameras and lights. Also she followed children around and behaved her very best while being petted. Out of the limelight and back at home on the Bolle farm, the nanny is no favorite of Jeannine's, dad, Walt Bolle who complains she eats the tender leaves off his shrubs and young trees.

Thefts Sere Police action in two breaking and entering complaints here recently have resulted in quick arrest of two suspects in one case, and the identifying of a suspected man in another. The second suspect is wanted after running away to avoid questioning and possible charges. Two youths, -one from Coleman and the other from Clare were arrested last week and charged with the robbery earlier this month of Logan's Mobil service station in Clare. The pair broke a window in the rear of the station Saturday night, August 3 and took over $100. in cash, concealing their tracks outside as they left. At Fullerton's Garage and Sales on McEwan street a glass in the back door was smashed out and a lock slid to allow a. thief to enter Saturday night, August- 10, or eatly the next morning. Missing inside was a tool box with about' $200. worth of mechanic tools belonging to an employee. Clare police and State Troopers think they have found the guilty man after recovery of the tools in Fairgrove, Mich. The man they want to question has skipped and a warrant is out for his arrest.
