Great Society Has One New Couple WASHINGTON (AP) - Under the Romanesque arches of a vast shrine, a full-throated choir fell silent today, an age-old question was put by a priest, and the words "I do" came from the lips of Luci Baines Johnson and Patrick John Nugent. Thus the daughter of the 36th President became the bride of a college boy reared in a modest, orange bungalow in Waukegan, III. She was the latest in a roster of eight girls married while their fathers served - as chief executive of the Johnson Warns Of Cutbacks Due to Steel Crowd Expected PBNN GRANGE- Area Jobless Figure Same Despite Work WASHINGTON (AP) - President Johnson, acting after a wave of steel price boosts he did not challenge, has warned that such increases could force a cutback in government spending on projects such as the space program. The President coupled the signing Friday of a bill authorizing $5 billion for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration with - warning to business and union leaders: "If particular segments of our economy continue to raise their prices and increase the cost of this and other programs, it will be necessary for the government to further reduce its expenditures, particularly in those areas where prices are rising in an inflationary way." Although Johnson made no direct reference to this week's price increases in the steel industry, it was clear that his statement was prompted by that move and last week's rejection by the AFL-CIO International Association of Machinists of an airlines contract calling for increases reported to be between 6 and 7 per cent. Acceptance of the contract would have ended the month-old walkout against five major airlines. The White House has labehd the steel price hikes inflationary, but the industry called the $2 to $3 a ton boosts inconsequential and modest. In his statement, Johnson said the maintenance of the space program depends on the cooperation of "major business leaders and union leaders." "If we are to continue our space effort and continue to make the magnificent progress represented by our past achievements," the chief executive said, "we can do so only if business and labor leaders will make their contribution by responsible pricing and bargaining decisions."

The three clergymen of the concelebrated Mass, the new-lyweds and indeed the tall President himself seemed tiny compared to the high altar, its four polished columns of pink stone rising to its marble canopy. Moments of high interest succeeded each other rapidly from the time the President, with Luci on his arm, began the 352-foot journey down the aisle.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Prices for locally-grown corn and other vegetables have risen sharply, in some cases doubling c-ver last year, in many parts of the state-effects of a prolonged summer drought, according to producers, sellers, and agricultural agents. The most dramatic rises are in corn prices. A dozen ears, ordinarily selling for 50 to 60 cents at this time of year, recently sold for $1.42 in Kutz-town, Berks County $1.44 in Media, Delaware County, $1.18 in Quakertown, Bucks County, and $1 to $1.20 in Waynesboro, Franklin County. Growers cited higher operating costs - specifically added costs of irrigation-in addition to the drought-limited supply of crops as a key factor for higher prices.

"So far this week our attendance is greater than it has been at any previous fairs - and if the weather holds, we are looking for the biggest crowd of the week today," a Fair Board member said this morning. Saturday is always the biggest day at the fair and with two Joie Chitwood Thrill shows this afternoon and the appearance of Frankie Fontaine in two grandstand shows tonight, today is expected to be a, real record smasher. This was indicated by the fact that people were on the grounds as early as 9 o'clock this morning to buy tickets for tonight's show. Fontaine, the comedian arid singer on the Jackie Gleason TV Show, is expected to be one of the most popular stars of the Fair who have included The Bitter End Singers, Hank Williams Jr. and his Band and Bobby Rydell. Tonight's shows are scheduled for 8 and 10 p. m. The two-hour thrill shows will go on this afternoon at 2 and 4 p. m. However, activity on the midway where the James E. Strates Shows is playing will continue until midnight or later. After the close of the Fair the carnival will be divided into two sections, with one going to the Bedford County Fair and the other to the Mckean County Fair at Smethport.
