The importance of man's recognition of God and His con trol of man's destiny provided the mainstream of Dr. Haggai's address, despite side excursions into fields that were seemingly unrelated, and he likened the YMCA to a bridge between the life we make and God and His church. The YMCA, he said, must put on the street the knowledge that man has a leader, a guide, a hope in God. Prior to Dr. Haggai's address, E.

LBJ May Act ; Cosf Of Living Rises By STERLING F. GREEN WASHINGTON (AP) - The consumer price rise has slowed a bit since February, but not nearly enough to erase the possibility that President Johnson may seek an anti-inflation tax boost. , The Labor Department reported Thursday a climb of four-tenths of 1 per cent in the living cost index in March, following a February jump of one-half of 1 per cent. The successive increases added up to the biggest two-month rise since 1958. But wholesale prices held steady and now have turned downward. In the week ended Tuesday they were three-tenths of 1 per cent below the February level. Housewifely economizing has helped somewhat. Retail pork prices dropped for the first time in four months, the department's report said, partly "because of stiffening consumer resistance to higher prices." There was no immediate comment on the index from the White House. President Johnson Air force, Navy Hit Targets in North... Allied Force Threatens Entire Red Regiment By THOMAS A. REEDY SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) - U.S. Marines and South Vietnamese troops threatened today to wipe out an entire Communist regiment after killing at least 257 Reds in the bloodiest fighting in a month. Backed by artillery and air strikes, the allied battalions nailed down the mixed North Vietnamese-Viet Cong force in the scrub hills 10 miles north- west of Quang Ngai on the northern coast. Blocking units moved in to cut off a Communist flight to the mountains in the east. U.S. officers reported from the battleground that Ihe Communists were caught in a trap and said the fighting was continuing. The Communists set up a blaze of automatic-weapons fire from the villages of Binh Back and Chau Nhani, but the Leath- ernecks took both in their eastward drive. The rain of steel from the air reduced Communist ground fire to a minimum on the second day of the allied strike. The battle brought government troops into a big action for the first time after weeks of political crisis. The U.S. Air Force and Navy continued hammering at North Viet Nam, hitting military bases, roads and bridges. Air Force pilots claimed they destroyed the Lang Bun and Phu Tho railroad bridges on the Red River valley line leading northwest of Hanoi to Red China. The Navy lost an A6 Intruder from the carrier Kitty Hawk over North Viet Nam, 12 miles north of Vinh. Pilots said they saw the plane hit by ground fire Please Turn to Page 14, Col. 5 Please Turn to Page 6, Col, 7 Reminder: Turn Clock Ahead This Sunday By THE ASSOCL\TED PRESS The nation takes a step toward conformity in summer time Sunday. When the time comes for turning the clock ahead an hour - at 2 a.m. Sunday unless you want to do it earlier and go to bed - the lineup of states on "fast" time and on standard time will remain about the same as last year. Nineteen will observe daylight saving time statewide, and 12 partly. The law does not require any state to adopt daylight saving time, but it does demand that a state which uses fast time at all must use the federal dates - April 24 to Oct. 30. In some states the period has been from Memorial Day to Labor Day, adding to the confusion in a nation with four time zones and plenty of rugged individualism. The law does not make daylight saving lime mandatory next year, either. Bui before the summer of 1967 rolls around, any state that wants to stay on "God's lime" will need a state legislative law specif ically forbidding daylight sav ing time. The feeling in rural areas runs strong againsl the time device whi9h gives the city golfer an extra hour at the 19th hole or the suburban gardener an extra hour with.his roses. Uay Have Suffered Some Brain Damage ... State Senator Offers Idea On Pitt Tuition HARRISBURG (AP) - Sen. Robert D. Fleming, R-AUeghcny expressed favor today for a tuition cut affecting all Pennsylvania students at the University of Pittsburgh, onct that institution becomes slate-related. The Republican Scranlon Administration also favored cutting the present $1,450 annual tuition for in-state students, but has not decided whether it wants to do it on a forthwith or degree scale.. The options include going to a $4.50 tuition fee next year, or to a $700 fee next year and then a $450 fee the following year. It would remain at the $450 level in future years.

Clearfield Council Airs Construction The municipal parking lot and sidewalk repair v/ere among the items of business on the agenda of last night's semi-monthly Clearfield Borough Council meeting. Following a report by Joseph V. Marino, chairman ol the building and grounds committee, Council voted unanimously to advertise immediately for bids for 50 parking meters "more or less." The advertisement is to be staled this way in the event that Council may wish to purchase -� in addition to the 50 meters needed for the municipal lot - new heads for the Cherry Street parking meters. This would be done to prevent the street meters from competing with those on the municipal lot. Engineer and Acting Street Commissioner Allan Martin reported that with good weather the municipal lot should be ready for blacktop in "a couple of days." After that the lines marking the parking spots can be painted and the parking meters installed. Concerning the need for sidewalk repair, a matter that was brought up at an earlier Council meeting, it was suggested that a public notice be inserted in the newspaper asking property owners to voluntarily repair their sidewalks. "I think that before we begin using pressure through sidewalk ordinances we should give the property owners a chance to make these repairs of their own free will," Councilman Roy Wise, chairman of the street, sidewalk and sewer committee, said. In other actions, the council-men approved erecting signs reading, "Slow, Children at Play," at either end of Krebs Avenue between West Pine and Clearfield streets, and accepted reports made by Police Chief Charles C. Edmiston and Fire Chief Edwin Halistrom. Approval of the signs was given after Clarence J. Pear- By MAX SKELTON HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) - A 65-year-old patient with a partial artificial heart may have suffered some brain damage after a dramatic operation to save his life, doctors said today. , � r r However, almost 24 hours after the device - about the size of a grapefruit -was implanted inside the man's chest his condition was generally reported as satisfactory. Physicians feared there may be brain damage because the patient, Marcel L. De t Rudder of Westville, III., had not regained consciousness. A team of noted specialists from Baylor and Rice universities headed by Dr. Michael E. DoBakey, 57, performed a six-hour operation on DeRuddcr Thursday at Methodist Hospital. They hope it will prolong his life and usher in a new era in the treatment of heart disease that could help thousands of other heart patients. The latest medical advisory said it was too early to tell the extent of the brain damage De-Rudder may have suffered. The advisory noted that the heart device was function normally as expected. The device, a dome-shaped pump about the size of a tennis ball, is outside the body and is allached to two tubes, each about an inch in diameter and about six inches long, which have been implanted in the )p�-tient's chest and attached to his heart. Physicians hope that when injured heart chambers have healed the pump can be removed and the implanted tubes sealed off. Other than the report of possible brain damage, it was similar to an earlier advisory that said DeRudder was "exhibiting no evidence of heart failure and everything was progressing most satisfactory." However, DeRudder was still not considered out of danger with the next 12 to 24 hours considered critical for him. "We definitely now keep a close eye on him," said DeBak* ey in an interview. "The pump," as he called it, "is doing its job. It is maintaining his blood pressure and keeping him out of heart failure. If he progresses well, within a week or 10 days, we can let his heart lake over," DeBakey said.
