Clearfield Progress (Newspaper) - February 21, 1966, Clearfield, Pennsylvania \ "SAY IT WITH FLOWERS" Curwensville Florist State Street Phone 236 0761 SHOP - SAVE AT CLOVER FARM STORES Republican Plans Race Against Rep. Schweiker HAVERFORD, Pa. (AP) - Former U.S. Rep. John A. La-fore Jr. of Haverford plans a political comeback against a man who knocked him out of Congress six years ago in an up set victory. The 60-year-old Lafore, in a surprise announcement Saturday, said he would oppose in cumbent Rep. Richard S. Sen weiker in the Republican prima ry election in May. Lafore criticized Schweiker's Congressional record as "too liberal" for Montgomery County, saying he thinks he has a "darn good chance" of beating Schweiker. Schweiker, 40, is seeking his fourth straight term.. In Washington Sunday night Schweiker said in a statement: "It will be up to the people to decide whether or not I have done a good job as their congressman. I have tried to do the best and most conscientious job I know how. Of course I cannot please everyone on all of the more than 600 votes which I have cast during the time \ have maintained an attendance record of 99 per cent." Schweiker, an underdog in the 1960 GOP primary, described himself then as an independent Republican. He defeated Lafore, then the incumbent, by more than 5,600 votes and went on to beat Warren M. Ballard, the Democratic candidate, for the congressional seat he now holds. Lafore is now an executive with an engineering consulting firm. He first was elected to the U.S. House in 1957, filling the unexpired term of Rep. Samuel K. McConnell Jr. He won a full term the following year. Lafore accused Schweiker of being "motivated by things de signed to advance Himself," and that he "appears willing to use the county as a stepping stone." Fred C. Peters, former Montgomery County commissioner and long a political power in Lower Merion Township, also is supporting Lafore. What Montgomery County needs is "a taxpayers' guardian" and "Jack is the best bet," Peters said. THE PROGRESS, Clearfield, Curwensvllk, Phillpaburg, Moshonnon Valley, Pa., Mendey, February 21, 1966 State Water Board To Discuss State's Clean Streams Law HARRISBURG (AP) _ The State Sanitary Water Board plans a public hearing March 16 to consider new proposals for further implementation of Pennsylvania's clean streams law. It proposed regulations this weekend that would tighten standards for coal washing solids and apply for the first time to sand and stone washing solids. The board proposals would demand a higher degree of waste treatment from coal washing plants by applying new mine drainage requirements. Pollution from coal refuse piles currently in use would be regulated by making the new standards applicable no matter where water comes in contact with coal or coal refuse. Water from springs and streams coming in contact with coal refuse eventually has resulted in stream pollution, the board said, noting '.hat this was permissible under old law in areas where the piles drained into "unclean"streams. The new law maktes it illegal to pollute unclean as well as clean streams. The new law makes it illegal apply to the handling and storage of all minerals and mineral preparation wastes.
