Bill Carpenter said today he called in air and artillery strikes on Communist troops overrunning his position because "this was the most effective way I could see to kill them." "The Air Force made the initial run with napalm and cannon fire," he said. "We lost some of our people then." The decision saved the ground for his company on Thursday and may win him the Medal of Honor. His company is Company C of the 502nd Battalion of the "Screaming Eagles" 101st Airborne Division. Carpenter, 28, who won fame as the "Lonesome End" of the 1959 West Point football team, marched the remains of his company out of the battle area today. With him was Capt. Ron Brown, Chattanooga, Tenn., who led his company to Carpenter's aid.

Paratroopers Regroup For Fresh Assaults By ROBERT TUCKMAN SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) - U.S. paratroopers regrouped today for fresh assaults on entrenched North Vietnamese regulars who already have lost nearly 400 men in the jun-gled central highlands. While ground fighting subsided to isolated skirmishes during the day. B52 bombers pounded a Communist troop area only 10 miles north of the battle area. The B52 strikes were made before dawn to support ground units of the U.S. 101st Airborne Division which has locked with at least two battalions of North Vietnamese Army regulars since Tuesday. A U.S. military spokesman said there had been sightings of at least two more Communist battalions in recent days in the B52 target area. He said the target was a suspected site for North Vietnamese reserve forces and supplies. Capt. Bill Carpenter, a hero of the paratroopers ground In Anti-U. S. Demonstration ... Buddhist Backers March HUE, South Viet Nam (AP)- An orderly crowd of about 5.000 Buddhist supporters marched through the streets of Hue today brandishing anti-American and antigovernment banners. Steel helmeted riot police airlifted from Saigon Friday stood by but did not interfere with the march. The demonstration commemorated the third anniversary of the fiery suicide by Buddhist monk Quang Due on a Saigon street. The self-immolation was the first of a series of burnings through which Buddhist elements have been pressuring successive Vietnamese governments. Most banners carried by the crowd mentioned Quang Due's name and glorified his sacrifice. Some also attacked Premier Nguyen Cao Ky's regime and said "Vietnamese condemn the American president's colonialist policy in Viet Nam." South Vietnamese authorities sent formal notice to Seoul today that Premier Ky will attend the Asian-Pacifu Ministerial Conference opening Tuesday in the South Korean capital. Sources in Seoul said the South Korean government fears Ky might upset the conference by proposing a military alliance. Australia and Japan which are participating in the conference are known to oppose such a move.

Reuther Says Meany Hampering Peace Bid By NEIL GILBRIDE AP Labor Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - United Auto Workers President Walter Reuther has charged AFL-CIO president George Meany with hampering President Johnson's "bridge-building" overtures toward the Communist world.

Arthur Rose of State College was sworn in as county chairman, Mrs. Sally M. Woodring of Bellefonte as vice chairman, and Howard Bcllingham of Philipsburg as state Republican committeeman.

The reaction in Meany's headquarters here was a frosty silence. AFL-CiO delegates walked out of the conference in Geneva, Switzerland, last week after it elected Leon Chanj of Communist Poland as president. The walkout reportedly was on the orders of Meany, who follows a line of unbending anti-Communism in international affairs. "We yield to no one in our opposition to Communist tyranny." Reuther told Meany in the letter. "But we share the view the cause of human freedom will be advanced, not by isolating ourselves from the hundreds of millions of people now under Communist domination, but rather by promoting relations with them that will enable us to demonstrate the superior value of democratic Ruby Will Get Sanity Hearing; Lawyers Opposed By RAYMOND HOLBROOK DALLAS, Tex. (AP) - Jack Ruby, sentenced to die in the electric chair for the slaying of Lee Harvey Oswald, will get the sanity hearing Monday his lawyers have been seeking for almost two years. But in an apparent about-face, the attorneys now say they are opposed to the hearing because it would jeopardize Ruby's constitutional rights if they have to call witnesses who might testify at the new murder trial they are seeking. They say (hey will appear in court Monday morning as directed by State Dist. Judge Louis T. Holland but that they will not call Ruby to the stand and they will present no witnesses and no evidence to support their earlier claims that Ruby is insane. Holland turned down defense motions Friday which would have forestalled the hearing and would have returned the case to the Texas court of criminal appeals, which ordered the sanity hearing before it would consider the appeal of Ruby's conviction. Ruby, 55. a former night club operator, did not appear at the pre-trial hearing Friday. He has been in jail since the fatal shooting of Oswald, named by the Warren Commission as the assassin of Presilent John F. Kennedy, in November 1963. If a jury finds Ruby sane, the appeals court then would consider defense arguments that Rights Groups Plan Support For Meredith By BOB GILBERT BATESVILLE, Miss. (AP) - While a foot weary procession plods southward through Mississippi, civil rights groups from coast-to-coast today planned vocal and walking support to the cause now known as James Meredith's march against fear. The march pace will be slowed a little through a new tactic. Instead of sticking to U. S. 51, which only brushes the outskirts of towns, the marchers will go into county seats to escort Negroes to voter registration places. Meredith, the first Negro at the University of Mississippi, walked for two days from the Tennessee line toward Jackson, the slate capital, before he was wounded by two blasts of bird-shot. Others took over where he left off and their number has varied from 125 to 600. Meredith set out on his walk to encourage Negroes to register. In support of the marchers, civil rights workers in Phoenix, Ariz.; Louisville, Ky.; Buffalo, N.Y.; Nashville, Tenn.; Los Angeles; Chicago; Albany, N.Y.; San Antonio, Tex.; and throughout Louisiana scheduled rallies and marches today or Sunday. Some groups coupled the affairs with voter registration support and memorial services for Medgar Evers, state field secretary of the Mississippi chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, who was shot to Please Turn to Page 10, Col. 1 Inside The Progress Classified Ads ....... 8, 9 Hints From Hcloise......12 Comics .................

I. (AP) - Former Ambassador John K. Galbraith said today Secretary of State Dean Rusk was "terribly misinformed" in his estimates of support for the administration's foreign policy. Speaking at the commencement exercises of Rhode Island College, Galbraith, now an economics professor at Harvard University, quoted Rusk as saying recently: "I have found the objectives of American foreign policy are widely understood, respected No One Injured In Three Area Road Accidents No one was injured in any of the three traffic accidents reported yesterday in Clearfield and vicinity. Property damage in the three mishaps totaled more than $2,000. About $1,200 of that amount was caused to the station wagon of Jack A. Aughenbaugh, 37, of Clearfield R. D. 1, in an accident last night at 11:30 o'clock at the intcrsectior. of Turnpike Avenue and Martin Streetv Borough police quoted Mr. Aughenbaugh as saying tha>t he was traveling nortii on Turnpike and was blinded by headlights. He said he went too far to the right and hit a Iree with the impact causing his car to bounce back into the left lane of traffic where it collided with an oncoming automobile driven Ruth M. Showden, 19, of Witmer St. Damage to the Showden was estimated at $150. The other two accidents in the Clearfield area occurred on Route 322 two miles apart and within 45 mmules of each other. The first was at 5 p. m. some m miles east of Clearfield. It involved a sedan driven by Clair Lucas, 51, of Pottersdale, and a station wagon operated by Blaine G. Shepherd, 41. of Philipsburg R.

"They are to be read in light of the fact the secretary sits at the very center of wlut is one of the greatest information-gathering organizations in the world. How could a man in his position be so terribly misinformed?" Galbraith, who served as ambassador to India under the late President Kennedy, said: "The obvious truth is not a single one of our European allies has sent a solitary soldier to the support of our enterprise in Viet Nam. Sweden, a country hitherto noted for neither unin-lelligence nor malignant anti-Americanism, has thought so little of our policy she has imposed an arms embargo - a quarantine - upon us." "Nor are matters much better here at home. Week by week, the polls show a steady drop in the admiration of Marshal Ky and therewith in policies the secretary espouses. "It is difficult to find anything, either abroad or at home, that remotely resembles the understanding, respect and support which the secretary perceives." Galbraith said the problem of Viet Nam "seems to be the government has less information" than private citizens "and that is much more alarming." He said the State Department and the administration "discount far too heavily the reactions of a rising political force in the United States that is especially important in the field of foreign policy. That is the college and university community." He cited predictions that by 1970 there will be nearly 500,000 college and university teachers in the nation, and by 1969, some 6.7 million students. "No community of this size," he said, "is ever without public and political influence. Students and faculty have resources for informing themselves on foreign policy which are far superior to that available to the general public." fighting 30 miles northwest of Kontum City, was reported to have led survivors of his company to safety during the day. Carpenter, the West Point football star who was the "lonesome end" of the 1959 West Point football team, had called in a Napalm air strike on his own position Thursday when his company was being overrun by North Vietnamese. The highlands fighting, known as Operation Hawthorne, was described by an American military spokesman as "one of the heaviest" engagements of the year. The spokesman said that as of late this afternoon the North Vietnamese dead totaled 385, an increase of more than 100 over the previous official figure. The official spokesman gave this summary of the situation on the battlefield 280 miles north of Saigon: "There are two confirmed battalions of North Vietnamese regulars dug in along moderately steep ridges, heavily covered by underbrush which is chiefly bamboo thickets. "U.S. and ARVN (South Vietnamese) forces are in positions all around the general area. Because of the broken nature of the terrain it is not accurate to describe this as surrounding the enemy. The spokesman said American casualties continued light over-all, although several individual units suffered moderate or heavy losses. The battle could have large military significance. With two and possibly four North Vietnamese battalions badly mauled, it could upset the timetable for any Communist monsoon offensive against the central highlands. The highlands long have been a Red objective and at least six regiments of North Vietnamese were known to be poised just across the border in Laos.

(AP)- Tropical storm Alma, no longer of killer hurricane status, crept up the South Carolina-North Carolina coast today pounding beach towns with gale force winds and heavy rainfall. Shipping lanes were threatened as the season's first hurricane continued to move out to sea. A total of 47 deaths have been attributed to Alma. The Miami Weather Bureau predicted some intensification in the storm this morning but said Alma "should be a good distance from the mainland" if and when she reattains hurricane status. The bureau located the storm about 70 miles south of Wilmington, moving toward the east northeast at about 15 miles an hour. Her 50-mile-an-hour winds at storm center were well offshore but gales extended out 200 miles to the cast and the south. Gale warnings are displayed from the Virginia capes to Savannah, Ga. The Weather Bureau said a cold front moving southeastward through North Carolina may cause erratic motion of the tropical storm when the two systems collide. But Alma's course out to sea was expected to continue. Heavy rains occurred in all coastal towns with Wilmington reporting four inches of rainfall in six hours. The South Carolina coastal cities of Charleston and Myrtle Beach also reported heavy rains and minor wind damage.
