The principal witness this To Hit Campaign Trail Tomorrow .. LBJ Appeals for Unity On U S. Policy in Viet By WALTER R. MEARS WASHINGTON (AP) - President Johnson, home from his historic mission to the Far East, has appealed for unity behind American policy in Viet Nam- for "where there is a deep division in a land, there is danger." "Where there is unity in the land, there is strength," Johnson said in a homecoming speech Wednesday night at rainy Dulles International Airport. Johnson was at the White House today, but not for long. He is expected to open a fast-paced, final round of campaigning Friday to urge the election of Democrats in next Tuesday's slate and congressional balloting. Johnson said America's task in Viet Nam is far from done, but he said Asians-the people closest to the arena of conflict-know that Communist aggression there must be defeated. "They know that it is their duty to help the'United States keep these fires from spreading," he said, "and that effort will be increased." And he said: "Those of us who met at Manila know the road may be long and difficult. We know that each of us will make mistakes. But if our countrymen will stand with us-if we will try to travel this difficult road together, I think that we will come out well at the end as America always has." Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield, campaigning in Shelby, Mont., said there can be no American withdrawal from Vict Nam until there are peace, talks. "Once an honorable peace is achieved, then we will be prepared to withdraw, lock, stock and barrel," Mansfield said. "Militarily, we cannot and will not be defeated."

Highway Secretary Henry D. Harral said last Friday that the exit will be renamed the Phil-ipsburg-Kylertown Interchange "for geographical reasons and to assist motorists in reaching their destination." The Commissioners, meeting in special session yesterday afternoon, reaffirmed their position that Kylertown be the only name designation and affirmed a statement by Harral last July that this would be the case. A letter from Harral to the Cooper Township Planning Commission July 12 informed the commission that he had taken "official action, based on requests from many interested parties, to formally establish the name Kylertown for Exit No. 21."

Temperatures plunged 30 degrees from the 60s yesterday into the 30s and lower today as an intense storm system moved northward over the Great Lakes region. The storm dumped heavy snow over a six-state area from Tennessee to Michigan with up to 15 inches on the ground in central Kentucky.-- Windy and colder weather was the outlook for the area tonight and tomorrow. Although snow flurries are expected to continue, no snow accumulation is in the offing. The U. S. Weather Bureau said there was a chance of some accumulation in northwestern Pennsylvania by tonight. Meanwhile, heavy snow warnings continued, with from 3 to 6 inches indicated across the eastern and lower Great Lakes. The early November storm left a blanket of snow up to 15 inches in central Kentucky and up to 10 inches covered -sections^ in southeastern Tennessee, western Ohio, southeastern Indiana and Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

Lawrence Supervisors Ask Slower Speed On New Route 153 The Lawrence Township Board of Supervisors recognized a traffic safety problem within the township limits at a regular meeting last night. To solve it, the three - man board authorized its secretary, Harry Baney, to petition the Stale Highway Department for permission to erect 25-milc speed limit signs on relocated Route 153 through the Mill Road-Race Street section. The 25-mile speed limit is believed necessary because of a school crossing here as a protection to traffic approaching on cross streets. Discussion, but no action on several other pending township matters, took up the remainder of the meeting. 3ills and payroll amounting to a little over $9,400 were approved for payment, Present at the meeting were Supervisors 7rancis Rumsky, Kenneth Graham and Walter Haversack, Mr. Baney and John B.

DeMuth Jr. of Carlisle, assistant professor of surgery at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, said that there is definite evidence linking smoking with lung cancer. He said that the ratio between non-smokers and heavy smokers contracting carcinoma of the lung is 16 to 1. These statistics apply to both men and women, he added. Other factors are under suspicion in connection with the disease but cigarette smoking outranks them all by far, he said. Describing lung cancer as responsible for the greatest number of cancer deaths in men, he went on to say that it is principally a disease of the 20th century, with a very high mortality rate. Surgery is generally required in attempts to arrest the disease. Dr. DeMuth elaborated on the diagnosis and prognosis for the person with lung cancer, stat- James Taylor, 60, of Osceola Mills, was critically injured in a four-car accident, last'-evening, at 5:15 o'clock on Route 53mid^ way between Philipsburg and Osceola Mills.

S. Launches Gemini Craft By HOWARD BENEDICT CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) -The United States today fired the openig shot in its plan to develop a military man-in-space program by hurling an unmanned modified Gemini capsule over a scorching suborbital path. Then the same Air Force rocket orbited four satellites, one carrying a batch of satellite decoys. The launching of the Gemini craft over a 33-minute ballistic course ' was the first test of hardware to be used in the Manned Orbiting Laboratory program, which expects its first manned flight in 1969. Goal of the program is to determine what military duties man can perform in space. The 16-story-tall Titan 3 rocket, called a transtage, ignited and pitched down at an altitude of 127 miles to drill the Gemini back through the heat barrier of the atmosphere at 17,500 miles an hour. An "artificial astronaut"-an electronic black box designed to perform a man's duties-successfully oriented the craft and steered it to a parachute landing in the South Atlantic Ocean about 5,060 miles southeast of Cape Kennedy. Planes and helicopters spotted the craft as it drifted downward under its 83-foot parachute. They were overhead when the Gemini splashed into the water, landing very close to,the aiming point. A recovery ship sped to the scene.
