Romney Making Nomination Move By WALTER MEARS COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Michigan Gov. George Romney is making his move for the 1968 Republican presidential nomination - but there is a job of salesmanship ahead among his moderate colleagues as well as GOP conservatives. There is Californian Ronald Reagan, who said in ah interview he is ruling out no potential candidate, is committed to none, and wants to see Romney in national action before he makes any decisions. Reagan has had harsh words about Romney's refusal to endorse the 1964 GOP ticket headed by Barry Gold water. The Michigan governor ' is known' to have talked with Reagan in ah effort to smooth out their differences. Reagan is likely to command California's 86 convention votes when Republicans gather to choose their next presidential nominee. Some liberal to moderate GOP governors indicated that they, ,'too, remain to be convinced about Romney. Romney insists it will be six months before he decides whether to seek the White House. But 'there was little doubt about his candidacy today among other Republican governors convened in this mountain resort. Colorado's Gov. John A. Love was elected chairman of the Republican Governors Association. Gov. John H. Chafee of Rhode Island was chosen vice chairman, to succeed to the top spot next year.

LEUBSDORF WASHINGTON (AP)-Despite major election triumphs by moderate Republicans, the party's conservative wing was the winner insofar as the results will affect the makeup of the 1968 GOP nominating convention. This may present added difficulties for Michigan Gov. George Romney, whose expected candidacy already is opposed by some conservative Republican groups because he failed to support GOP nominee Barry Gold water in 1964. The size of GOP convention delegations is determined by an elaborate formula which gives added weight to states which support the Republican presidential nominee, elect a Republican governor or choose a Republican senator. Under the formula, U. S. Bombs Kill 16 Marines Two Dropped On U. S. Unit in Viet DRIVER INJURED - The driver of this car, 19-year-old Margaret Ann Hill, of Falls Creek, suffered facial injuries last night when the car collided with a loaded hay truck on the Rockton Mountain, She is reported in satisfactory condition at the Clearfield Hospital. By ROBERT TUCKMAN SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) - Two 250-pound bombs dropped from a U. S. Marine Corps plane exploded in the midst of a Marine company today, killing 16 Leathernecks and wounding 11, a Marine spokesman said. The bombs were among six dropped to support a Marine battalion advancing.along a razorback ridge, known as the Rockpile, about five miles south of the demilitarized zone, he said. The other four fell on their intended targets ahead of the advancing Ma------- nnes. The spokesman said the two errant bombs may have rico-chetted after striking the rocky terrain or there may have been a malfunction in the bombing mechanism. The bombing strike was aimed at a suspected concentration of North Vietnamese troops on the ridge. In other war action, the Viet Cong mounted a series of at- Soviet Leader Accidents Injure five..

DOBKIN PITTSBURGH (AP) - The judge ordered two hardened convicts gagged and bound in straitjackets before letting their trial continue. A third convict threatened to kill him. And when the bizarre five-week trial in Allegheny County Criminal Court ended Friday night with conviction of the trio for attempted prison break, one of the defendants called the judge a "creep." "Incredible," is the way Asst. Dist. Atty, Robert X. Medonis summed up the proceedings. "I'm exhausted. I hope it never happens again." The three Western State Penitentiary in mates - Richard Mayberry, 28; Dominic Codis-podi, 34, and Herbert F. Lagnes, 27-acted as their own attorneys. Sentencing was set for Monday. As Judge Albert A. Fiok be- gan charging the jury, Mayberry and Codispodi threw the courtroom into an uproar by shouting at the jury and drowning out the judge. Fiok called a recess and ordered the pair removed. Twenty minutes later deputies marched them into the courtroom bound in heavy canvas straitjackets, their mouths taped shut with adhesive. Lagnes, still unbound, shook a fist at the judge and screamed: "I swear on my mother's name, I'll shake hands with you in Hell. You're a dead man," and ended with a respectful, "your honor." Last week Lagnes told Fiok "If I can't get my rights legally, I'll get them illegally. If I have to blow your head off, that's what I'll do," While Lagnes made his most recent threat Mayberry and Codispodi continued to mumble loudly through their gags. The situation completely out of control, Fiok called another recess. Because the accused must be present to hear the charge, the judge ordered them into an anteroom and broadcast the charge by loudspeaker. Each was charged with holding two prison guards hostage while attempting to escape with zip guns and prison-made bombs from Western State June 27, 1965. Early in the trial last month, the three staged an escape from the Allegheny County Jail. With three other convicts they overpowered a guard, held a policeman hostage in his police cruiser,, commandeered another-car and wounded an off-duty county workhouse guard before being recaptured a few hours later. By BETTY HAMILTON Progress Staff Writer A century of living hasn't diminished the spunk nor sense of humor of Mrs. Jennie Fox, formerly of New Millport. Mrs. Fox, who now lives at Clearfield, celebrates her 100th birthday today - but she isn't overly impressed by her longevity. In the first place, she rather expected it. Her father, Dan Barnelt, the county's last Civil War veteran, lived to be nearly 102. A sister who resides on the West Coast is in her 90's. Mrs. Fox has also learned that living to be 100 can have its disadvantages for a woman accustomed to being active. "To tell you the truth, it really isn't much fun," she says with a laugh. She has found it a little difficult to adjust to being incapacitated as the result of a broken hip suffered three years ago. Although she is able to be about in a wheel chair and to use a walker on occasions, il isn't quite the same as the independence she enjoyed before her fall. Until three years ago she lived alone in her home at New Millport and did most of her own housework. Her only concession to advancing years was agreeing to spend the winter months with a daughter. "I made a garden, picked berries and did all sorts of things - and I could probably do them now," she says. Mrs. Fox, one of 11 children, was born and reared on a farm and she attributes rural living in part to the good health she has always enjoyed.
