State police said the students were returning from a basketball game at Clarion at about 11:30 p. m. Under the impression that the Keystone Short-way west of DuBois was completed, they went around the barriers on a Shortway entrance near Reynoldsville. They had traveled only a few miles when they suddenly came to the end of the construction. The car went over a drop-off of some 20 feet into soft mud. Richards and the driver of the car, David L. Viglione, 18, of DuBois, walked about a mile to the nearest house to get help and to call the state police. Both boys were taken to the This cemented Republican chief executives into political power bases in at least 25 states which �'ill cast 290 electoral voles two years from now-20 in excess of the 270 needed lo elect a president. As final ballot counts stretched out the measuring tape, it became apparent that Johnson and his Democratic administration had suffered a crippling, though nol necessarily lasting, defeat in contests where the President had thought Democrats might do very well. The fact that Republicans will control at least half of the governorships in lhe next two years doesn't mean they will be able to maneuver their states into the GOP column in the 1968 presidential contest. Voters have a way of making up their own minds about such matters. But Lhe mere fact that their party has broadened its base for attack on Johnson's expected re-election bid certainly will make the GOP nomination much more attractive to poten- $57,280 Grant Slated For County Work A 12-month supplemental grant of $57,280 to Community Action in Clearfield County, Inc., was announced today by Lawrence E.
