WPSX-TY Tells Story Of Clearfield's Rebirth Clearfield's industrial Renaissance was the subject of a half-hour television documentary last night which drew the conclusion that the town's success is going to last. The program, "Reinvestment for the Future," was seen on WPSX-TV, Channel 3, the educational station of Central Pennsylvania. It included interviews with nine Clearfield business leaders and scenes of area industries that led to the start of the industrial re"*? birth of the area. At the start of the program, it was pointed out that in 1960, the unemployment rate for Clearfield was 15.4 per cent, but that rate was later cut by two-thirds. S. K. Williams, president of Clearfield Furs, told the interviewer that the area was not blessed with a particular economic activity, nor had it been "very low on the depression ladder." Mr. Williams pointed out that around 1960 changes were taking place in some of Clearfield's industries. Against a background of pic- Plcase Turn to Page 8, Col. 4 Auto Workers Demonstrate At Chrysler DETROIT (AP) - Skilled United Auto Workers demonstrate today at Chrysler Corp. headquarters to protest refusal of the Big Three car makers to reopen labor contracts. The tradesmen, rejected Monday in their bid to reopen contracts In negotiate their demands for a 50-cent hourly pay raise, planned to march for four hours at the Chrysler offices. Joe Zapha, an officer of the UAW's Chrysler Local 212, said representatives of skilled workers in 22 Detroil-area locals of the UAW called for the demonstration. Only off-duty employes were being asked to participate, he said, but it was expected some skilled tradesmen might not go to work in order to participate in the demonstration. Chrysler, General Motors Corp. and Ford Motor Co. declined Monday to discuss revamping of skilled trades wages in their contracts with the UAW. The pacts will expire Sept. 6, 1967. One concern among industry officials about any reopening of the contract was that unskilled and semiskilled production workers might also call for renegotiation of present contract wages. There are nearly 100,000 skilled workers and 600,000 other production workers in the Big Three. Plans for the demonstration were formed by the $1 an Hour Now Steering Committee," comprised of UAW skilled tradesmen. Its chairman, Christopher J. Manning, sajd: "The refusal of "T^�5fg"Three to open the wage "agreement on behalf of skilled trades has spurred the committee to further courses of action By GEORGE ARFELD BON'N, Germany (AP) - The growing row between West Ger-man military and political leaders took on crisis proportions today as a third general asked to be retired. A Defense Ministry spokesman disclosed that Maj. Gen. Guenther Paper, commander of the Third Military Region, has asked to be relieved of his command because he disagreed with a Defense Ministry decision allowing servicemen to join a labor union. The row threatened to topple Defense Minister Kai Uwe von Hasscl and reach into the office of Chancellor Ludwig Erhard. The dispute took on new urgency Tuesday as Gen. Heinz Trettner, 58. commander in chief of the armed forces, asked to be retired, saying he objected to Von Hasscl's decision of Aug. 2 to allow soldiers, airmen and sailors to join the Public Services and Transport Workers Union. The disclosure by the Defense Ministry of Trettner's request came a day after the ministry suspended the air force chief, Lie. Gen. Werner Panitzki. for criticizing the government and its purchase of the air force*s crash-prone F104G Starfighlcrs. Panitzki charged the plane pur- chase was inspired by politicians and said the Defense Ministry needed to be reorganized. German political observers viewed the row swirling around the two generals as a crucial clash between the military and ruling politicians, who have made great efforts to keep the 430.000- member armed forces under their control since the country was allowed to rearm in the middle '50s. "When, of the four most important generals, two handed in their resignation in protest against the attitude of their ministers, it is high lime that the chancellor and the Bundestag determine if the minister is in command of the situation," said Helmut Schmidt, deputy Please Turn to Page 8, Col. 1 SCHOLARSHIP WINNER - Bonnie Burns of Clearfield R.
