No Extension of Deadline On Inspection or Licenses
HARRISBURG —Pennsylvania motorists will be given “a short count” by the calendar this year in which to comply with two requirements of the law.
Secretary of Revenue Theodore B. Smith Jr. today pointed out that drivers must be in possession of their new operator s li-
in 1965 insofar as the issuance of operators’ licenses is concerned is a switch to an electronic data processing system.
Future issuance of license renewals will be cycled to tie in with the month and year of birth for each driver, but before the change - over can be accom
cense and owners must have pished, the burdensome task of passenger cars and station wagons inspected to meet a dual deadline which arrives at midnight, Jan. 31. He warned that there will be no extension in either deadline.
“Since Jan. 30 is, in effect, the final day with Jan. 31 falling on Sunday this year, motorists in the habit of waiting until the
issuing licenses to all Pennsyl vania motorists must be accomplished over a three-month period.
L. T. Bernard, director of the Bureau (rf Motor Vehicles, added a further warning. He said:

Woman, 26, Turns Herself Into Torch
COLUMBIA, Mo. (UPI)—The daughter of a university professor, described as beset by personal problems, drenched herself with gasoline in a lonely bam, struck a match, and erupted in flames in a Viet Nam-style torch suicide Thursday.
Police hunted today for a mysterious telephone tipster who warned them ahead of time that Ann Atherton, 26, was planning to kill herself.
“He said he’d read about it In the paper if she did and if she didn’t, he’d see her tomor row,” said police Capt. J. C Smith.
“We’re hoping he’ll step forward and identify himself.”
Miss Atherton’s charred body was found in an abandoned bam on the west edge of Columbia. She was the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Lewis Atherton. He is a history professor at the University of Missouri.
Dr. Richard Johnson. Boone County coroner, described the death as “definitely suicide.” and said the dead woman “has had personal problems for a number of years” and had been under psychiatric care.
Johnson said the girl reached the bam by taxi, which first took her to a filling station to purchase a five-gal ion can of gasoline. She told the cab driver she needed the gas for her stalled car.
Smith urged the anonymous caller to give his name "if he was a friend of the girl.”
The caller asked police to investigate, and after saying he coula read about the suicide in the paper, hung up.
Police called Miss Atherton’s parents, who said they understood she had left her apartment in a taxi. Police located the cab driver, who had driven only two miles since leaving Miss Atherton at the barn.
Officers arrived at the barn while the smoke was still rising.

Longshoremen’s Union Presses For Pact Okay
NEW YORK (UPI)—Spurred by a government report that the five-day dock strike was costing nearly three times as much as originally estimated, longshore union leaders and some rank and filers today pressed on with efforts to win converts to a once-rejected contract.
Federal Maritime Administrator Nicholas Johnson said Thursday the Maine to Texas longshoremen’s strike was sapping the nation’s economy at the rate of $67 million a day. Heretofore, the cost to the maritime industry and related industries was believed to be about $25 million daily.
The strike began last Monday, three days after ILA members on the New York-New Jersey waterfront rejected a proposed four-year contract the union leadership saw as a pattern for

Union shop stewards and members favorable to the pact circulated petitions mi the piers urging a revote on the proposed contract. The ILA leadership did not specify how many signers it believed it was seeking before scheduling the second vote among the 24,000 stevedores employed here.
However, ILA President Thomas W. Gleason said, “no new vote will be called for until the members make it clear that they want to vote again and that they understand the contract terms.” Failure of the contract to win ratification the first time was attributed in large measure to rank and file confusion about its terms.

Two Senators Seek Warnings On Cigarettes
Altoona Key Club Adopts Viet Nam Lad
WASHINGTON (UPI) - Two senators planned today to Introduce legislation which would require manufacturers to place health hazard warnings on cigarette packages.
Sens. Maurine B. Neuberger, D-Ore., and Warren G. Magnu-son, D-Wash., announced they should introduce separate bills dealing with cigarette labeling.
Mrs. Neuberger’s “Cigarette Advertising ana Labeling Act” would go one step further than Magnuson’s by giving the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) power to regulate cigarette advertising.
She said Congress could not afford to enact mild legislation.
A cigarette package label that reads ‘cigarette smoking is definitely not a cure for cancer’ will not do,” she said.
The Oregon Democrat said that Congress has taken no positive action since the surgeon general’s report a year ago ruled that “cigarette smoking is a health hazard of sufficient importance in the United States to warrant appropriate remedial action.”

Rinfret also predicted the United Steelworkers Union (USW) would negotiate a “healthy package” of wage Increases and benefits. Talks between the union and the nation’s basic steel producers have been recessed until after the USW election Feb. 9.
Discussing the nation’s economy in general, Rinfret described the 1965 outlook as “bright” and forecast a 6 per cent rise in the Gross National Product. He said it was prema ture to say there might be a recession in 1966 as some econ omists have implied.

During the past week, Altoona’s citizenry has been increased. The change is not significant in number. He is only one person, but still very unique, for this citizen has probably never even heard of Altoona, nor ever been in the United States.
Altoona’s newest citizen is a young boy from South Viet Nam. He has been adopted in behalf of the City of Altoona by the Altoona High School Key Club as a goodwill project for the community. He will be sent a contribution monthly by the Key Club. When the newest citizen receives his first contribution, he wfil write a letter of appreciation to his fellow citizens of Altoona.
The child has been adopted by means of the Foster Parents Plan, Inc. This group is not affili ated with the United States gov ernment in any way. Its main goal is to give individuals and organizations a chance to show the true feeling of individual U.S citizens toward other countries of the world.
This project is one of many the Altoona High School Key Club has performed in conjunction with the betterment of the school and community. The project was approved by Mayor William H. Prosser on Thursday. Representing the Key Club were Chairman Jeff Shaffer, officers Semmie Hein-sling, Dick Kluba and Joel Berman, faculty advisors, Frank Rosenhoover and Dan Clark.

time also to complete requirements for his master’s degree.
Professional training like this laid the groundwork for his subsequent career as administrator of the historical restorations, museums, public parks and sites of Pennsylvania. He studied for a Ph.D. at Columbia in 1945 and has since been complimented by honorary degrees from Lebanon Valley, Susquehanna University, and most recently Moravian College.
In 1937 Dr. Stevens began a 19-year tenure as state historian. The office afforded an excellent entree to the state government, the legislature, and the wellsprings of public opinion. Stevens used it ably to advocate the most thorough and far-reaching reorganization ever undertaken of Pennsylvania’s rich, but hitherto unappreciated historical resources.
Outgrowth of his policy was the act of June 1945, creating the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission. The law unified effectively for the first
region from Clearfield to Bedford counties.

Hie Rev. J. Byron Bishop, retiring president, was praised by Mr. Voigesong for his dedication to the Club and for his achievements during his term of office. Past President Samuel Schulman. in behalf of the club, presented Rev. Bishop with a gold-plated gavel in recognition of his service to the club.
A project report was given by Sam Schulman by presenting and having the budget approved by the membership for the coming year.
Another portion of the program was devoted to the narration of slides titled “Kiwanis Objectives for 1965.” This was conducted by Kiwanian Earl Collins. Objectives: To give primacy to the human and spiritual, rather than to the material values of live; to encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships; to promote the adoption and the application of higher social, business and professional standards; to develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive, and serviceable citizenship; to provide through Kiwanis Clubs a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service, and to build better communities; and to cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism and good will.
President Hasson reminded all members that the club would be meeting with the Jaycees next Tuesday evening at the Tyrone Area High School cafeteria to share with them in their program, “Boss of the Year Award Night.”
Group singing was led by the Rev. Bishop and invocation was given by William Black.
