INDIANA COUPLE ALLOCATES SOME $1.6 MILLION TO ROTARY FOUNDATION: ROTARY INTERNATIONAL PRESIDENT ANNOUNCES GIFT AT KANSAS CITY INSTITUTE

 INDIANA COUPLE ALLOCATES SOME $1.6 MILLION TO ROTARY FOUNDATION: ROTARY INTERNATIONAL PRESIDENT ANNOUNCES GIFT AT KANSAS CITY INSTITUTE
 KANSAS CITY, Mo., March 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Flanked by Rotary's world president and representatives of the millions who have benefited from Rotary Foundation programs, William and Miriam Cable of Syracuse, Ind., will be applauded tomorrow for their gifts to the foundation's Endowment for World Understanding and Peace.
 On stage at the American Heartland Theater in Kansas City, Rotary International President Rajendra K. Saboo, of Chandigarh, India, will announce the gift to an audience of past and current Rotary officers from some 30 nations.
 Saboo has characterized the Cables as people "of great vision, of great heart, and of great generosity." Their gift combines a charitable remainder unitrust of more than $1.1 million with an additional insurance gift, bringing the face value to more than $1.6 million. In accord with their own record of service, the Cables have directed the funds to the foundation's humanitarian programs.
 Cable chose to make the announcement at Rotary's international institute. As past district governor himself, Cable felt the news appropriate to the meeting's tradition of continuing Rotary education.
 Established in 1917, the Rotary Foundation received its first contribution from the Rotary Club of Kansas City, a fact acknowledged in the morning ceremonies. There, Rotary Foundation Chairman M.A.T. Caparas, of Manila, Philippines, thanked the Cables for their great vision.
 Founder of MiGro Hybrid Seed Corn Company, Cable served as its chairman until selling the firm in 1979. A former farmer, he is self- employed as both an agricultural consultant and financial consultant. In his career, Cable has directed two community banks and three bank holding companies.
 Both Cables are active in their church and community. Cable's many offices include 20 years as a leader of the Elkhart County Extension Board. He has served on the governing council of Bethany Hospital in Chicago for more than 30 years.
 The Cables' dedication to Rotary began in 1973 when Bill became a member of the Rotary Club of Syracuse-Wawasee, Ind., which he served in a number of offices, including president, prior to becoming governor of his Rotary district for 1982-83.
 In 1984, the couple traveled to Cali, Colombia, where Bill served as a Rotary Volunteer, developing a course in seed enterprise in association with the International Center of Tropical Agriculture. His service was co-funded by the Rotary Foundation and International Executive Service Corps.
 Later, the Cables visited Nigeria to witness events in Rotary's PolioPlus Program to help immunize children in developing countries. In 1988, Miriam accompanied Bill to Ghana where he shared his agricultural expertise with Rotarians conducting a development project funded through the foundation's Health, Hunger and Humanity Program. Both Cables are Paul Harris Fellows and he has received the Rotary Foundation's Citation for Meritorious Service.
