Soft Coal Miners In 6 States Idle PITTSBURGH (AP) - Soft-cool miners in six states struck today in a dispute over a new contract.

Some 35,000 miners w.ere off the job. At most mines the strikers did not maintain picket lines. No disturbances were reported. George Titler, UMW national vice president, said he believed "everybody" would be on strike by Tuesday morning. The UMW has about 100,000 members in the soft coal industry. In Washmgton, a spokesman at UMW headquarters said "there wasn't any sanction" for the walkouts. The spokesman said the situation between the union and the Bituminous Coal Operators Association was unchanged from Friday. UMW President W.A.

Ty-ger reported the accident occurred on Township Route 317 in Rush Township, Centre County, appro.ximalely a mile from Osceola Mills. The victim was accompanied by Thomas Burns, 18, also of Osceola Mills, when his car became stuck in the mud on a dirt road. They flagged down a pickup truck operated by Dennis B. Beveridge, 17, of 108 Lin-gle St., Osceola Mills. Beveridge, who was accompanied by Michael Mainhart, 19, of Harrisburg R. D., and Jerry Archer, 19, of Osceola Mills R. D., agreed to help them and told Le Corre and Burns to hop into the back of the truck. Le Corre was said to have been leaning out over the side giving directions to reach his car when he lost his balance and fell out.

In a letter to A. J. Greenough, president of the railroad. Lions Club President Eugene F. Conk-lin claimed that dust from the proposed plant would be a hazard to health and property. He said that dust from the plant could destroy Woodland Park, a popular beauty and recreation spot in the area, and that trucks operating on 10 to 15 minute schedules) 10 hours a day, 6 days a week would pose a safety hazard, especially to children. The Lions Club proposes that the plant be located at either of two other railroad sidings. One is located three miles west of Woodland and parallels the main tracks near Barrett. The other is at the former sewer pipe plant in Lawrence Township, just east of Clearfield. "Our club has spent a large sum of money and our members have spent many hours of labor in making Woodland Park a place of beauty and recreation," wrote Mr. Conklin. Noting that there are plans to expand the park, he added: "This could all be destroyed by cement dust." In closing, Mr. Conklin said; "Mr. Greenough, we know you would not want this dust condition to exist in your community and we ask you to use your influence to have this cement plant transferred to one of your other sidings." A public meeting on the subject is planned later this week with the date and time to be announced.

WHITE SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) - Premier Nguyen Cao Ky's military government braced today for more street violence after the Buddhist leadership vowed to keep up demonstrations until the U.S.-backed junta quits. "Only when our aspirations are met and our demands satisfied will there be no more demonstrations," the country's most powerful monks declared in a joint statement Sunday. In militant tones echoing their declarations of political war on the government of the late President Ngo Dinh Diem three years ago, the Buddhists accused the regime of lying, irresponsibility and placing^----------- House Still May Cite Purdy For Contempt HARRISBURG (AP) - Contempt proceedings against Col. E. Wilson Purdy should continue despite his resignation as commissioner of the state police according to the chairman of a House commillce investigating lhal department. Rep. Ronald G. Lench. chairman of the special commillee, said Sunday that he thinks the panel should follow through wilh its plgns to cite Purdy and three subordinates for contempt. The officers, acting under orders from Gov. Scranton, failed lo appear at a hearing before Ihe Democratic  controlled committee which was concentrating on alleged wiretapping by state police. The panel then voted lo cite them tor contempt. Any sucK action lo be effective, requires a majority vote in the House. Lench also said ho does not believe Purdy's resignation will make a big change in the future course of the investigation. Scranton has scheduled a news conference for today on the subject In his resignation letter, Purdy charged Lench's committee with a "vicious, politically-inspired attack" upon his character. Scranton appointed Paul A. Rillelmann, superintendent of the Slate Police Academy, as acting commissioner. Al the same time, Scranton announced lhal court martial proceedings would be started against Stale Police Major Willard J. Stanton' and Detective Angelo Carcaci. Carcaci had testified that he sometimes had conducted wire-lapping under orders. Wiretapping is illegal in Pennsylvania. Stanton later refused to testify before the committee and Scranton relieved him of his command as head of the state police detectives a few days later. "too many obstacles" in the woy of civilian rule. Al a news conference in Saigon, the monks asked the nation lo rally behind the "Vict Nam Buddhist Forces," a new anli-governmcnl political action organization created by them. They were asked if a popular civilian government might seek peace with the Communists and order the withdrawal of U.S. forces. Thich Thien Minh, co-leaderof the Viol Nam Buddhist Forces and chairman of the militant Buddhist Youth Movement, replied: "If that is what the people want, then that is what they will get. Wc want lo fulfill the aspirations of the people." The Buddhist leaders denied they were anti-American or responsible for the attacks on individual Americans by rioting, Buddhist-led youths in Saigon last week. "The monks involved were just letting off steam." they said. "We abide by nonviolence." They accused the Ky government of destroying "the democratic spirit in Viet Nam" by promising elections no earlier than next year. They said elections could be held right away. The Buddhists said the pacification and reconstruction pro- grams warmly endorsed by President Johnson at his Honolulu meeting with Ky in February could move ahead only "with strong provincial and central governments." "We can get this with general elections, the elections we have demanded for three years," they said. "In this way we can make the whole country stable and prevent opportunists from making headway." The overwhelming majority of South Viet Nam's more than 14 million people are at least nominally Buddhists, although Roman Catholics comprise about 10 per cent of the population. There are also important minority religious seels. The government charged that Ihe Viet Cong had been instructed by the National Liberation Front's Central Committee to take advantage of the unrest. A government inlcUigoncc source was quoted by the official Viet Nam Press as saying that on March 12 the committee ordered Viet Cong agents to emphasize political agitation "by instigating the population to topple the government."

In his message, Mr. Scheid urged everyone to give their lives completely to Christ. He said lhal everyone denies Christ each day. He decried the discordant voices that say there is no God and made reference lo a sick world of disbelief, selfishness and indifference, stumbling and fumbling for knowledge without fully understanding the difference between belief and faith. He staled that as we believe that spring will follow winter, we should believe in Him who is able to redeem us all by His grace.
