Inez screamed into eastern Cuba today with 127-mile an hour fury, and in her wet, gloomy wake a blackout of communications concealed a possible human tragedy in Hai- ti's "Valley of Death."

Weakened in her Titanic bat- tle with the mountains of Haiti and the Dominican Republic, Inez had regained much of her ferocity in the water crossing to Cuba. The U.S. Navy base at Guan- tanamo Bay was hammered by sustained winds of 127-miles-an- hour velocity as the great storm crossed the coast of Cuba's Oriente Province, and Fidel Castro's struggling economy faced a disastrous blow.

The B52s unloaded tons of bombs on infiltration routes, and supply and assembly areas for the Communists fighting on the southern edge of the zone dividing North and South Viet Nam. One raid hit 20 miles south- west of Dong Ha, now a major base for Marines battling North Viet Nam's 324B division in Op- eration Prairie. The other bombing attack was made 18 miles northwest of Dong Ha. The two raids came less than 12 hours after Marine artillery, mortars and napalm rained down on a Communist com- mand post in a valley a mile and a half below the demilitar- ized zone. The Marines occupied the post and found 51 North Vietnamese bodies.

In Monday Commissioners Meed Answers County Holds Off On Medicare Application The Clearfield County Commissioners at a special meeting yesterday afternoon decided to hold off for at least a year on making application to qualify the nursing care facilities at Clear Haven for Medicare. It isn't that they are against Medicare, but rather they feel there are too many things in program which they know nothing about and haven't been able to find answers. Board Chairman J. Harold MeFadden said: "I think we're pretty much agreed that Medicare is now a way of life but at the moment we have no idea how we as a Leaders United Behind Shapp, Democrats Told By VINCENT P. CAROCCI HARRISBURG (AP) Pennsylvania Democrats were told Thursday night that their leaders stand as one behind the candidacy of their gubernatorial nominee, Milton Shapp. "I am a Democrat and I want to see Milton Shapp elected governor of declared Sen. Robert P. Casey, the organization-backed candidate whom Shapp upset in a bitter primary last May.

He added that he could not see how the county could turn over to federal and state man- dates "the only facility we have for the care of the aged without first knowing what all is in- volved." Minority Commissioner Wes- ley J. Read echoed his remarks saying he is highly in favor of the program's original intent to provide hospital care and services for the financially dis- tressed over age 65. However, he declared he would not want to see federal or state government controls over a facility which he said was "nearly wholly subsidized by taxpayers of the county." "Personally, I haven't enough he concluded. Commissioner A. W. Pearson sided with his counterparts say- ing: "I don't think they've got the bugs worked out of it. I think we should wait." The deadline for counties to apply and become eligible for the Medicare program is to- morrow. Under the program, the coun- ty would have to enter into a written agreement with hospi- tals serving Clearfield County whereby non ambulatory pa- tients would be referred by the hospital. The commissioners would have no control over who is admitted.

Although the platform did not mention how the program would be financed, Shapp has called for the passage of a billion to billion bond issue to raise the money. The Democrats' campaign document advocated a constitu- tional convention, called if that is necessary, by the Legislature without prior voter approval, to consider changes in the state constitution. This item specified that such a convention would not consider a graduated income tax.

Turner Wins statewide advertising award Troopers Recall Quote Pathologist Gives Lengthy Testimony On Examination By BETTY HAMILTON Progress Staff Writer State police officers testi- fied this morning that when Jon E. Yount, DuBois Area High School teacher, gave himself up at the DuBois Sub- station on the early morning of April 29, he was "calm and collected" and confessed without hesitation to the kill- ing of one of his pupils, 18- year-old Pamela Sue Rimer. Following Yount's arrest he had been quoted as tell- ing the state police, think I am the man you are look- ing for." On the witness stand this morning Trooper John Phillips and Detective Edward Kerr said the defendant's exact words were, "I am the man you are looking for." Yesterday afternoon Dr. John Unger, Brookville pathologist with 31 years experience, testi- fied that the autopsy he had performed on Pamela showed that she had a severed windpipe and shock and that she had definitely been raped. He estimated the girl lived between 20 and 30 minutes after the last of three cuts was made across her throat. The cuts, he said, were cov- ered by a stocking wrapped loosely around her throat and tied with a double knot. The stocking, Dr. Unger told the jury, was such a device as might be used to strangle a person by twisting the knot. While the stocking around Pamela's neck was frayed and pulled almost to the breaking point, the pathologist said he had found no identations on her skin. This morning Trooper Phillips said that he had been asleep in a bedroom at the DuBois Substation when the doorbell rang about 5 a. m. on April 29. He answered the door and found a man whom he did not know at the time but -who he later learned was Jon E. Yount standing outside. "I asked him if I could help Trooper Phillips said. "He replied, 'I'm the man you are looking for'." (At that time the state police were searching for the killer of Pamela Sue whose body had been found about 12 hours ear- lier. The news of the slaying had been carried by area radio and television stations.) Trooper Phillips said he asked Yount to repeat his statement and he used the same words "I'm the man you're looking for." Defense Attorney Homer King then asked the trooper if Yount had not said, "I think I am the man." "No sir, he did the trooper replied emphatically. Trooper Phillips said he then summoned Detective Kerr and Trooper Donald Bedford who were sleeping in another bed- Please Turn to Page 8, Col.
