Paving Process On Shortway Part of Tour SNOW SHOE A new high- way paving process is being watched closely here to deter- mine if it can be used more widely in Pennsylvania's huge road buildin-g program. The technique called slip-form paving, eliminates the need for costly and time-consuming erec- tion of metal forms in advance of the paving machines. A Keystone Shortway project nearly five miles in length is being paved with the slip-form method. The Pennsylvania High- w a y Information Association (PHIA) has the project on it. itinerary for a fast-paced tour of six big construction jobs this Thursday. PHIA will airlift about 80 news- me.n and certain highway of- ficials to Philipsburg, then take the party over the rugged 28- mile project corridor in buses. About million in work is un- der way in the mountainous sec- tor on Interstate 80. The tour was rescheduled from Sept. 22 when ram and fog grounded the aircraft. Victor Anckaitis, chief engi- neer for the State Highway De- partment, said he was very op- timistic about results so far in the unique paving operation. The work is being, done by Number One Contracting Corp., West PiU.slon, under contract.

Senator Claims Shapp P roar am Is Impossible Democratic gubernatorial candidate's plan for free higher education was attacked here Saturday night as' an impossible program at a din- ner meeting of the Clearfield County Republican Committee. Sen. Stanley G. Stroup, major- ity leader in the Pennsylvania Senate, told some 400 dinner guests that Milton Shapp's edu- cation plan would incur interest on a bond issue that would ex- ceed the cost of the program over a 30-year period. The senator, speaking in the Harmony Grange hall, also said that the Republican state plat- form, in general, is a good pro- gram because it covers both rural and urban areas.

Yount mur- der-rape trial this morning and said it will show the de- fendant has a history of phy- sical illness which affected his actions on the evening of April 28, when he is accus- ed of the rape and slaying of one of his high school pupils, 18-year-old Pamela Sue Rim- er. Defense Attorney Homer King said the defendant, him- self, will take the stand to add his side to what the at- torney termed in his opening remarks to the jury, as the "Jon E. Yount Story." The defense opened its case shortly after court convened at 9 a. m. this morning. The Com- monwealth rested Saturday af- ternoon. In his remarks to the jury, Mr. King, speaking in a voice that was hardly audible to those beyond the jury box, said ths defense will show through mem- bers of the defendant's family that he has suffered for years from headaches, hives and as- thma and that he has shunned medical treatment. Mr. King said the defense will also show that Yount was involved in a traffic accident during April. The first witness called was Yount's pretty, blonde, 25-year- old wife, Ruth, who told of marrying Yount in 1S61 of shar- ing his love of fishing, hunting, bowling and baseball with him until the birth of their two chil- dren, now aged 3 and 1. She testified that on the morn- ing of April 28, he had taken aspirin for one of his frequent headaches before leaving for school at about a. m.
