Clearfield Progress (Newspaper) - August 8, 1966, Clearfield, Pennsylvania Today's Chuckle The first thing for a young person to do after getting a job is to purchase an alarm clock, even if he has to mortgage his car to do it. The Progress Reader's Tip A Philipsburg marine writes from Viet Nam. See Page 4. Vol. 60 - No. 186 Our 56th Year Clearfield, Curwensville, Philipsburg, Moshannon Valley, Pa., Monday, August 8, 1966 15,155 Copies Daily 16 PAGES TODAY Effective Next Year... Curwensville Dam Water Level Increase Approved A seven-foot increase in the height of the Curwensville Dam, effective next year, has been approved by the Chief of the Army Corps of Engineers, Dr.v Maurice K. Goddard, state secretary of Forests and Waters, told The Progress today. The increase in elevation will enlarge the permanent pool during the months from April through early fall to 790 acres and increase the shoreline to 19 miles. At the present time, the recreation lake measures 540 acres and has a shoreline of 16 miles. As a result of the Army En- gineers' decision, the Forests and Waters Department is now planning development of boating, swimming, picnicking and other facilities on the basis of enlarged lake, Dr. Goddard said. Enlargement of the lake area had been asked by Curwensville Borough Council and the Cur- wensville Planning Commission to provide an even more attractive boating area than presently exists. At the dedication of the dam May 2R, Brig. Gen. David S. Parker, then North Atlantic Division Engineer, announced that he was seeking approval by the Chief of the Army Engineers for the Increase in size. General Parker and Col. Frank W.

Gov. Raymond P. Shafer, the GOP candidate for governor, couldn't resist digging into a hotdog at the Clearfield County Fair Saturday afternoon. (Progress Photo by Jack Zipf) Shafer, Tabor Impressed By County Fair By BETTY HAMILTON Progress Staff Writer Lt. Governor Raymond P. Shafer and Pennsylvania's Secretary of Commerce John K. Tabor made whirlwind tours of the Clearfield County Fair Saturday and went away quite impressed. "I was amazed at the size of the crowds and the wonderful exhibits - particularly the grange and livestock. You have a wonderful fair here and everybody seems to be having a great time," Lt. Gov. Shafer said. During his tour of the grounds and the exhibits, the lieutenant governor proved to be a typical Fair visitor - and with the appetite that is one of their characteristics. Before he left the grounds he had consumed two hot dogs, two Cokes and a meat ball sandwich. In between he stopped to introduce himself and chat with Fair visitors. "The governor is away so he asked me to stop in and give his greetings," he said. Some of the Fair-goers were a little surprised to discover the tall, sandy - haired shirt-sleeved man was the state's second high official. Others like the Pennsylvania Ramblers, a dance band playing in the grove, recognized him instantly. As he passed they broke into the "Pennsylvania Polka," in his honor. There were some surprises in store for him, too. He was greeted on the grounds by his daughter and daughter-in-law who were at State College and came to visit the fair. Lt. Gov. Shafer arrived at the fairgrounds about 3:45 p. m., some 15 minutes after the departure of Commerce Secretary Please Turn to Page 5, Col. 6 Partly cloudy with scattered showers or thunder-showers tonight, low 58 to 68.
