Clearfield Progress (Newspaper) - July 12, 1966, Clearfield, Pennsylvania Today's Chuckle A five-year-old, told that for his penny he could buy six or seven pieces of candy, said: "Give me seven." The Progress Reader's Tip Action by Congress is the topic of 'The World Today' on Page'4. Vol. 60 - No. 163 Our 56th Year Clearfield, Curwensviile, Philipsburg, Moshannon Valley, Pa., Tuesday, July 12, 1966 15,155 Copies Daily 44 PAGES TODAY Union Accuses Airlines Of S*KS Overestimating Figures BULLETIN WASHINGTON (AP) - The AFL-CIO International Association of Machinists today accused the five airlines shutdown by a strike of overestimating by at least $25 million the cost lo them of a settlement proposed by the union. WASHINGTON (AP) - Assistant Secretary of Labor James J. Reynolds described as discouraging today the outlook for settlement of the strike against five major airlines. Reynolds, a veteran negotiator in railroad and shipping strikes, told The Associated Press in advance of the scheduled midmorning resemption of negotiations between representatives of the airlines and the striking machinists' union: "There's been very little progress. The positions of the parties are very fixed at the moment." But he said also "the important thing is that the parties live up to their responsibilities and make their own decisions. We're doing everything to help them meet their responsibilities to themselves, to the public, to labor and management." Reynolds was discussing the Labor Department's part in mediating the five-day-old dispute that has halted 60 per cent of the nation's air transportation and is costing the airline industry and labor about $8 million a day. But while the strike goes on, nonstruck airlines, bus lines and railroads are reporting booming business. And from Capitol Hill have come calls for new legislation to prevent future transportation tieups and demands for compulsory arbitration. There still are eight major national issues - wages being the principal problem - and 38 local issues unresolved. Mainly, the AFL-CIO International Association of Machinists is asking to be allowed to share in the prosperity that has fallen to the airlines in the past year or two. "After all these years when they have accepted substandard conditions, airline employes are entitled to a better deal," said Joseph W.

Mc-Namara says air strikes against North Vietnamese oil storage depots have had no noticeable effect thus far on Communist infiltration into the South. And he warned the Communists that stepped-up infiltration could bring an increase in U.S. airraids. At a news conference Monday, McNamara said it is too early to determine if U.S. bombings of oil storage facilities near Hanoi and Haiphong have reduced the movement of men and equipment into South Viet Nam. "We have not been able lo notice any effect on movement so far," he added. On June 29, the day of the initial strikes against the depots, McNamara had said "there is no question but what these attacks will make it far more difficult and far more costly for the North to continue the infiltration." In answer to a question Monday, the secretary said "I don't believe we have approached a limit to the use of airpower over North Viet Nam. As they increase the movement or as they attempt to incease the movement of men and materiel it may be necessary for us to fur- ther increase our air effort there." McNamara said, without mentioning a specific figure, that he expects an increase on the 280,000-man U.S. force in Viet Nam before the end of the year. And he said the United Slates is producing air munitions at such a rapid pace that he is ordering a $l-billion cutback in production. He also traced again the previously announced reduction of $4.5 billion in the cost of operating the nation's military services during fiscal 1966. In other developments: Rep. Melvin R. Laird, R-Wis., said McNamara's report of sav-ings was an attempt to evade a study of defense policies. The chairman of the House Republi-can Conference added in a statement that there is a danger the United States is not preparing itself militarily for the future. Thirteen congressmen returned from a Viet Nam tour and immediately reported to President Johnson that they have no doubt the United States is winning the war, although there can be no quick solution.

Scranton announced today the removal of Charles Simpson of Philadelphia as a member of the Slate Board of Education.

Temperatures shot into the 100s again Monday from the Great Plains to the southern and central Mississippi Valley as the prolonged heat wave extended more than three weeks in some areas. Two massive power outages struck areas in Nebraska and in SI. Louis where the heavy demand for air-conditioning caused interruption of electric power. The mercury soared to a sizzling 106 at St. Louis, the second-highest mark in the city's history. The Union Electric Co. declared an emergency in St. Louis and cut off power lo broad areas of the city and its suburbs for up to two hours. Power failures in Nebraska were atribuled to a relay failure at South Dakota's big Fort Randall Dam and a burned-out main transformer at a Nebraska power station.

Point System For Safety, Education EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first in a series of three articles explaining the new Pennsylvania Point System . . . Act 527 .. . effective July 24. 1966. This article points out why this new legislation is significant for every Pennsylvania motorist. Subsequent articles will explain the function of the Driver Improvement Schools as set forth in the Point System, and changes in Pennsylvania's speed limits now being made under the Point System. July 24, 1966, will be a red letter day in traffic safely progress in Pennsylvania comparable to the issuing of the first driver's license and the inspection of the -- first motor vehicle. The occasion: introduction of the new Pennsylvania Point System for motorists. But merely the introduction of a new law does not make an event meritorious. Outstanding is the fact that Pennsylvania is leading the way in a major change in traffic safety philosophy from one of suspension as a penalty to one of education as a means of improving driver attitudes. Harry H. Brainerd, commissioner of the Pennsylvania Bu- reau of Traffic Safety, one of a group of traffic safety authorities instrumental in framing the new point system, explains the change in philosophy this way: "Adherence to the drhing rules of the State is essential by the people. In the past, Pennsylvania, in an effort to control behavior on the highways, enforced a strict system of suspending licenses for non-conformity as stipulated by an ad- Missile Site Destroyed ...

S. fliers tangled with two MIG21s and eluded a barrage of missiles over North Viet Nam during bombing raids on missile, radar and fuel sites, the U. S. command reported today. In a day of furious air activity Monday, one missile site was destroyed and two oil installations and a radar site bombed, a spokesman said. Carrier planes pounced on some 200 barges and junks and pilots reported destroy- ' ing or damaging 59 of them. The U.S. command announced the loss of an F105 Thunderchief to Communist groundfire Monday. The pilot bailed out but he could not be rescued because of heavy antiaircraft fire and is listed as missing, a spokesman said. U.S. headquarters also announced that a Navy F8 Crusader went down 40 miles northeast of Haiphong today and that the pilot was rescued. It was not known whether the plane crashed because of mechanical failure or was shot down, a spokesman said. A military spokesman said 286 U.S. planes had been lost to enemy action over North Viet Nam through last Thursday. With at least four more planes lost since then,'the unofficial total now stands at 290 since the bombing began Feb. 7, 1965. Disclosing U.S. helicopter losses for the first time, the American command said 179 had been the victims of enemy fire, including three in North Viet Nam. The latter presumably were on missions to rescue downed American airmen. A U.S. spokesman said the figures losses did not include helicopters and planes destroyed on the ground when the Communists shelled airfields.

All the bruises have disappeared, all the blisters have healed... and my ear infection is gone." He said the bruises came from running into stumps and trees at the beginning of his swim, which began June 14 at Coopexstown, N.Y., and ended in Maryland, where the river meets the Chesapeake Bay, The blisters were from fins he used in shallow water and took off after the water got deeper. He said the infection By JOHN L. TAYLOR HARRISBURG (AP) - The Scranton Administration planned today to introduce eight bills calling for major revisions in Pennsylvania's 93 - year - old Constitution. The amendments, endorsed by the Pennsylvania Bar Association, would affect all three branches of state government-executive, legislative and judicial. If passed by the legislature, they would have to be passed again at another session before being voted on by the people. A packag of 12 constitutional amendments were introduced by House Democrats Monday and they may introduce more today. The Scranton Administration, meanwhile, sought Democratic sponsorship for its amendments in the Senate. Among the Scranton bills were proposals to allow the governor to serve two successive terms, to require the legislature to reapportion itself every 10 years and to eliminate such minor judiciary pfficials as aldermen and justices of the peace. By comparison, the House constitutional revision package was minor in scope. The most important provision would reduce from one year to 90 days the resident requirement for Pennsylvania voters. The remainder of the 12-bill package merely would make minor language changes.
