Truck Strikes Bicycle at Hyde, Boy Is Injured A Hyde boy was slightly injured Saturday morning when he was struck by a truck while riding a bicycle near his home. It was one of five weekend accidents in the area in which damage totaled $1,915. Gerald Bloom, 12, suffered cuts and brush burns on the leg and was treated and released at the Clearfield Hospital following the accident at 11:30 a. m. Saturday. State police from Clearfield said the truck operated by Jeral L. O'Brien, 32, Hyde, was traveling north on Legislative Route 17098 at Hyde when the Bloom boy rode out onto the road from a private driveway, into the path of the slow-moving car. The brakes on the bicycle failed, police said, and the car struck the boy. Young Bloom was thrown from his bike and injured, and was taken to the hospital by his parents. State police listed damages at $15 to the bicycle and $10 to the 1964 O'Brien truck. Damage totaled $1,850 in By KARL R. BAUMAN WASHINGTON (AP) - Buoyed by his weekend "non-political" swing into five states, President Johnson was back at his White House desk today with similar trips apparently in the offing. Future travel plans have not been announced, but there was speculation the chief executive might be on the road the next two weekends. - The President capped his five-state tour with an address Sunday on Canadian soil. He said there is a real limit to power because the United States has the means of unlimited destruction "bul we do not have the power alone to make peace." He declared: "Only when those who promote aggression agree to reason will the world know again the blessings of peace." The President's address followed a meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson at which the two leaders discussed the Viet Nam war and other matters. Johnson flew to Canada after a "nonpolitical" weekend stump through upper New York and New England. ' The President and Pearson dedicated a visitors' pavilion now under construction on Cam-pobello Island. New Brunswick, where President Franklin D. Roosevelt had a summer home which still stands in the middle of a 10-acre international park. Wilh Pearson at his side, Johnson said: "No man loved peace more than Franklin Roosevelt. II was in the marrow of his soul and I never saw him more grieved than when reports came from the War Department of American casualties in a major battle. "But he led this nation courageously in combat - not for war's sake, bul because he knew that beyond the war lay the larger hopes of man. "The history of mankind is the history of conflict and agony and of wars and rumors of war.. Clearfield Boy Found Safe In Mountains A 16-year-old Clearfield boy was found in the woods of S. B.

Gaulle has criticized the U.S. course in Viet Nam, he believes the French president would do what he can to end the fighting.
