The affair was hosted by the Clearfield Borough - Lawrence Township Planning Commission and took on the aspects of a planners' conference as it progressed. Representatives of Clearfield Borough Council, Lawrence Township Board of Supervisors, Clearfield County Planning Commission and two planning consultant firms were present to hear officials of Tracydale Developers Inc. and the Boron Oil Co. tell of their expectations for the interchange complex. Mark Murphy and James Davis of Tracydale, an Erie headquartered firm, explained that the Clearfield Interchange is one of several along the Short-way where they have acquired land and will install motel and restaurant facilities. "Our approach here was to contact Boron Oil Company whom we learned had also purchased land and planned to locate automobile services," said Mr. Murphy. "Together we " engaged Clifton E. Rodgers and Associates to do the planning for us." Mr. Davis, who will .soon open an office in State College to be closer to the firm's Shortway developments, also spoke briefly on some of its long-range plans. Messrs. Tandy and Jones Of Boron Oil (Standard Oil of Ohio) told of Boron's experiences with similar.' interstate highway development in their home state adding that at present the company has 46 units in planning and 5 in operation along the Shortway., , "Every projection shows that Interstate^ 80 - the Keystone Shortway - when completed, will be the best of all the inter-states and will carry the most traffic. It will be the key ,to opening your section of Pennsylvania, the key to community development to an extent that is difficult to envision now." He particularly stressed the Impact of tourism and the attraction of good transportation for light industry. G. C. Terbush, speaking for Clifton. E. Rodgers and Associates noted that Tracydale and Boron are unique in that they sought planning help, prior to any development "so that they may develop the complex to the best advantage of everyone concerned." One can look for three major activities, Mr. Terbush said, "development for the transients, industrial development of the recreational aspect." The Tracydale firm has purchased the former Zemka family farm for its motel and Boron the H. C. Burnsworth property for the service area. Ward. L. Smith, secretary, of the borough-township planning commission^ opened the meeting in the absence of Chairman El-don L. Bloom and turned it over to W. K. Ulerich who introduced the speakers. Mr. Ulerich, also vice president of the Keystone Shortway Association, spoke briefly on Shortway construction progress, the status of the Otocsin complex at the Elliott Park Interchange and interchange development in general. After a question and answer period during which numerous and varied queries came from the municipal and planning commission guests, the Clearfield Borough - Lawrence Township Commission met with Richard Knowles of Bellante and Klaus Consultants, its planning firm, for regular progress and other reports.

"The idea of an end to hostilities is becoming stronger and more confident," the Pope said. "If, as it has been announced, a further cessation of hostilities is to follow shortly on the Christmas truce, why do not both parties to the conflict join the two separate truces into a single, continuous period of time, so that new ways may be explored of bringing about an honorable understanding putting an end to the conflict?" Pope Paul gave a 2,000-word speech in Italian from a throne before the main altar of St. Peter's during a Mass marking the feast of the Immaculate Conception.' The pontiff urged that the Christmas truce and the Vietnamese New Year truce in February be joined in a single armistice.; The,Pope said. that neglecting "such a golden opportunity" to; end the war would "be fraught with  danger? He said he prayed to God that his "earnest desire^ �siiall,. not fall ^ on  deaf ears." � . v:'': He said the approach of Christmas brought to mind "the war in a distant corner of the world saddening and threatening the whole world,, the war that is still going von ...How opposed to one another are these, two terms, these two events - Christmas and war!"

The ship, which also carries automobiles and freight, went down two hours after midnight after a, last frantic radio message -"We are sinking!" In the first hours after the disaster the merchant marine ministry said there appeared to be no hope that any of the 206 passengers and crew of 56 had survived. But as ships and planes converged on the disaster site, off the island of Milos, wreckage and people were seen in the water. Planes dropped lifebelts and- rafts,  ' Word of the sinking raised fears that Greece had suffered Europe's worst peacetime maritime disaster of the 20th century/, eclipsing the loss of 130. lives in the' sinking of the British ferry Princess Victoria in the Irish Channel in 1953.

She was one, of three fer-. ries operated between Crete and Piraeus.  v Strong gales were sweeping the area at the time,of the ship's last radio message, and the marine ministry earlier had warned small ships to stay in port. .: '.
