Kimer family. The Rimers, of nearby Luth-ersburg' R. D., lost their only son in a farm accident three years ago this month. The boy was disconnecting a tractor and a wagon when the Avagon suddenly moved against the tractor, crushing him to death. He was only nine. Today the Rimers mourn the slaying of their only daughter, Pamela. Sue, an 18-year-old honor student at DuBois Area High School who planned to enter Penn State this fall. Her body was found late Thursday afternoon in a thicket along a lonely dirt road not far away from her modest farm home. She had been stabbed many times in the head and neck and a slocking was knotted around her neck. "Why did it happen?" cried Mrs. Rimer, who had to be placed under a physician's care for shock. -An intensive manhunt for the killer ended early the next day when a 28-year-old mathematics teacher at DuBois, Jon E. Yount, turned himself in at the state police substation near DuBois. Yount, who has a wife and two children and is considered by those who know him well as an exceptionally brilliant man, was arraigned before Alderman Meritt I. Edner and formally charged with murder and rape. A hearing has been set for Monday at 4 p. m. and Yount's attorney, David Blakely, already indicated that he will plead not guilty. Yount was held in custody at the state police substation from 5:45 a. m. - the time he walked in - until he was taken to his arraignment at 9:50 a.m. Police did not disclose what Yount told them. Following the arraignment Yount was taken to the Clearfield County Jail to await Monday's hearing. According to school officials, Miss Rimer was not a member of any of Yount's classes.

Series Your Will By SAMUEL LUBELL Progress Special Correspondent Often while questioning college students in 17 states, their responses caused me to shake my head in wonder. Still, in summing up all my interviewing, my net conclusion is optimistic-Today's new college generation should lift the quality of American life. Far from fitting any rigid ideological pattern, their ^reactions reveal an ability to balance their feelings so as not to go overboard. A majority of the students interviewed line up: (1) In support of the Viet Nam war but for admitting Red China into the United Nations. (2) For a stronger Federal government but against a guaranteed annual income, saying, "If that passed, why should anyone work." (3) Disliking the idea of going into business as a career but strongly, praising the performance of business in the economy. (4) A more rapid extension of civil rights but against racial inlermarriage. Many of the differences in thinking between students and parents clearly reflect differences in the life experiences of the two generations.

Down MIGs Jets By ROBERT B. TUCKMAN SAIGON. South Viet Nam (AP) - A U.S. Air Force jet shot down a Communist MIG17 over North Viet Nam today, bringing to three the number of enemy jets downed in the past two days, A U.S. spokesman said an F4-C Phamlom shot the MIG out of the sky with an air-to-air Sidewinder missile when four of the Red jets attacked a flight of Phantoms with cannon fire 100 miles northwest of Hanoi. The plane's crew consisted of Capl. Lawrence H. Goldberg, 33, of Duluth. Minn., and 1st Lt. Gerald D. Hardgrave, 28, of Jackson, Tenn., the spokesman said. Another F4C Phantom shot down a MIG with a missile Friday and a second MIG crashed .while trying lo escape during the same encounter. The Air Force said the flier who fired the missile was Capt. William D. Dowell, 34, of Tampa, Fla. The other crew member in his plane was Isl LI. Hal-bert E. Rossard, 25, of Oklahoma City, Okla. The Phantom which forced the other MIG lo crash was piloted by Capl. Larry R. Keith, 30, of Peoria, III. Flying with him was 1st LI. Robert A. Bleakley, 26, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Drafted for the Senate Armed Services Committee, it says a war declaration also would put in question what he termed the continued validity of President Johnson's call for a peaceful settlement of the struggle in South Viet Nam. There is nothing in modern international law requiring a nation to declare war before waging hostilities, it added. It was submitted by Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNam-ara in response lo questions raised at a Feb. 24 hearing. The paper, now made public by the committee, presumably represents the over-all administration position on the question of a declared war in Viet Nam. There has been some contention in and out of Congress that the United Stales is committed illegally in Viet Nam in the absence of a declaration of war. Neither the U.S. Constitution, the guidelines of international law nor the issue of prisoner treatment requires a formal declaration of war, the Defense Department paper said. "To declare war would add a new psychological element to the international situation, since in this century, declarations of war have come to imply dedication to the total destruction of the enemy," the report said. "It would increase the danger of misunderstanding of our true objectives in the conflict by the various Communist slates, and increase Ihe chances of their expanded involvement in it." In addition, the McNamara response said, a war declaration would put in question - what he termed the continued validity of President Johnson's call for a Please Turn lo Page 10, Col. 5 N. Viets Build Road By EDWIN Q. WHITE SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) - Communist North Viet Nam, seeking to rush equipment and supplies South before the monsoon season sets in, has built a 200-mile road network in the Laos Panhandle. An estimated 1,500 lo 3,000 trucks are operating there, it was learned today, in an effort to get the tons of goods the Communists need into South Viet Nam before the rains come. The road network includes an estimated 35 miles that the Communists have sought to camouflage by building bamboo trellises and lacing them with branches to hide the roads from prowling U.S. aircraft. It was learned that this buildup is part of a decision by Hanoi lo increase the number of main-force units in South Viet Nam. The military objective of North Viet Nam is to push tons of materiel South during the dry season and continue the infiltration of men by foot after the rains begin in mid-May. The main motor route for infiltration from North Viet Nam through Laos is the Mu Gia Pass area along the Laos border. The secondary route is the Na Pe Pass just to the north ol Mu Gia. The Mu Gia Pass, 65 miles south of the North Vietnamese city of Vinh, has been the site of repeated attacks by American I war planes. � � � -.....� Af hil, Courthouse...
