Assembly Opens __ _.____ c. TT e mnoninafiii rfia. Hirhpd hv the tendency of some next few weeks, I may perhaps By MAX HARKELSON UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) The U.N. General As- sembly opens its 21st session today in an atmosphere of gloom, with East-West relations seriously impaired by the Viet Nam war and with little pros- pect of progress on major is- sues. The only bright spots were the decision of Indonesia to resume its U.N. membership after an absence of 18 months and an indication from U Thant that he might continue as secretary- general until the end of the year if no successor is found in the next few weeks. Advance agreement assured the election without a floor fight of Afghanistan's veteran Am- bassador Abdul Rahman Pa- zhwak as assembly president for the 13-week session. This will clear the way for quick or- ganization of the 117-nation body. Although the Viet Nam war is not formally on the assembly's agenda, it is expected to play a major role both in the general debate which begins later this week and in the discussions of disarmament, outer space law and other issues coming up la- ter in the session. In what could be a move to put the war before the assem- bly, Czechoslovakia proposed Monday that the assembly de- bate "the prohibition of the threat or use of force in interna- tional relations." U.N. officials estimated that more than 80 heads of govern ment, foreign ministers and oth- er cabinet members would be present for at least part of the session. They will not only take part in the debates but will en- gage in behind-the-scene talks. Vice President Hubert H. Hum- phrey was among those expect- ed at the opening session. Secretary of State Dean Rusk already has arranged to meet with Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko on Thurs- day in an effort to improve U. S.-Soviet relations. U. S. Am- bassador Arthur J. Goldberg said Viet Nam would be a sub- ject for discussion, but in the past the Soviet Union has re- fused to talk about peace moves. Thant told a news conference Monday that East-West rela- tions had dropped to a new low, mainly because of the Viet Nam war, and that there had been a stiffening of the attitudes by all sides. "To my knowledge, there has not been any meaningful dia- logue between Washington and Moscow for a long he said. While some diplomats were encouraged by Thant's indica- tion that he might stay on through the assembly session if no agreement was reached on a successor, the leadership crisis was by no means ended. Thant insisted that he was not only unhappy about the Viet Nam war and the U.N. financial situation but that he was dis- turbed by the tendency of some governments to regard the sec- retary-general as a "glorified clerk." This apparently was a reference to the Soviet bloc, which has often accused Thant and his predecessors of exceed- ing their authority. He suggested that the U.N. members should get on with the job of finding his successor. "Of he said, "if it proves impossible to find an agreed man, somebody accepta- ble to all, in the course of the next few weeks, I may consider serving until the end of the present session. In my view, two additional months will be quite ample for the members, particularly the members of the Security Council, to look for a suitable man. I also feel in- clined to the view that it would be undesirable to change secre- taries-general in the middle of the General Assembly session."

(AP) Surveyor 2 space- craft hurtled toward the moon today, aiming to soft-land in the middle of its target to photo- graph a crater-pocked plain where American astronauts may walk within three years. "We appear to be on a lunar the flight control center reported 30 minutes after launching, but cautioned that four to five hours of tracking would be required to determine the precise course and what corrections might be necessary. A powerful Atlas Centaur rocket raced against the clock and thundered away from Cape Kennedy at a.m. EDT to start Surveyor 2 on a 63-hour voyage which project officials predict will be "a cliff hanger all the way." The booster got off the ground with less than one second to spare. If all goes well, Surveyor 2 will reach the moon about p.m. Thursday, and will settle gently onto the Sinus Central flat but poten- tially rugged plain located in the center of the moon's visible face. Once there, its eye is to scout around the area to see if it is a good land- ing spot for American astro- nauts. The "cliff hanger" label was good right from the beginning as the Atlas-Centaur just barely got off the launch pad on time.

Clearfield Red Cross Chapter officials were highlr pleased with the community response as 113 people appeared to donate blood. Fifteen of these were asked to return at a later visit, based on tests that showed them not ready to give blood yester- day. Another 13 persons were giving blood for the first time, always a good sign to the Red Cross on the lookout for poten- tial continued donors. Mrs. June Holes, executive secretary for the Clearfield Chapter, reporting for Mrs. Raymond Hainsey, Blood Pro- gram chairman, expressed the Chapter's appreciation to don- ors and volunteers whose efforts made the visit a success.

Grundy informed the Board of Education last night. This year's enrollment rep- resents an increase of 122 stu- dents over the 1965-1966 enroll- ment. The break down on this year's enrollment shows 1.862 students attending classes in the nine elementary ;chools and in the senior and junior high schools. There are 281 seniors, 240 jun- iors, and 209 sophomores in the' senior high school. The Osceola Mills Junior High To reduce the student load in one room in the Osceola Mills School, it was proposed to move 8 students from a class of 41 and to place 4 each in classes now having 28 and 29 students. The director voted, however, before opening the room in the North Philipsburg School, to have the room inspected by the Department of Labor and Industry. If the room passes in- spection, it is to be placed in use immediately. For increased efficiency, the directors took action placing two Lincoln elementary teachers in the Osceola Mills School under the supervision of Miss Vernice Gack, elementary supervisor. Previously, the teachers had been under Miss Sarah Moyer, elementary supervisor in the Philipsburg area.

LEE Progress Staff Writer (Second of Five Articles) Charles McNitt is a county commissioner in Mifflin County, Pennsylvania, who grew up on a farm and who credits his political suc- cess to participation in the 4-H Clubs. Reflecting on modern rural society, he says: "I don't know whether it's television or what, but this new generation is going a dif- ferent direction than the one I came up in. Everybody seems to be going for themselves and branching out. There isn't the close rela- tionship there used to be." It is hard to imagine the American farm, the bastion of rugged individualism and the home of the close-knit family, without "the close relationship there used to be." Yet Com- missioner McNitt accurately reflects the feel- ings of many of today's rural people about the changing American farm. Not only are people moving off iho farm at a record raff; Ihe young people have no desire to fto bark to the farm once they sot college education. Not only is the farm be- -Its Present, Outlook coming big business; it is becoming a busi- ness which requires rigorous technical train- ing, where back-breaking labor and a good "business sense" would once have sufficed. Jv'ot only are technological advances changing the mechanics of the farm industry; they are helping to totally revise the American rural social structure as well. For one thing, the family farm as a "way of life" is losing ground to the commercial farm as a business operation. But for people who stay on the farm, the traditional family social structure remains the chief influence. "The farm family's welfare can't be isolated any more from the rest of says Pcnn State economist William Smith. "The family is the greatest influence, and in- stitutions come to bear on the individual to reinforce the value system." Among these institutions as we shall see later, arc the tra- ditional farm groups like 4-H and the Grnngo. Rut, Smith warns, the old image of the olnse- ly-knit, indomitable farm family doesn't Industry To Curtail Water Use To Ease St. Marys Problem ST. MARYS, Pa. (AP) In- dustry has agreed to cut water consumption by 50 per cent lo help ease a severe water short- age in this Elk County commu- nity. In addition, companies agreed Monday in a meeting with bor- ough officials to reclaim water from their plant cooling systems; and firms without wells said they would drill their own wells. Residents were urged to cut water usage by 70 per cent to give wells a chance to recover from a drought. On Friday, the St. Marys Water Co. told borough council the town's water supply would be exhausted within a week if normal consumption continued. The company said several of its wells had gone dry.- all necessary details for enter- ing available at the Clearfield County Extension office.
