Two brothers, Tom and James Pennington, each shot an albino deer in the La Jose area at 7:30 a. m. Tom is from Westover and James from La Jose. The deer were believed to be twins, each weighing about 60 pounds. According to one sportsman, albino deer are not rare. But it is highly unusual for two of them to be shot at one time, and especially by brothers. Over the past ' several years a pair of albino deer had been spotted in ,the Shawville area. Despite the objections of some people who think that albino deer should not be shot, the State Game Commission says that the albino weakens the strain of a herd. One of Six Mishaps... Board Named For Recount In 77fh District BELLEFONTE - Cen t r e County Judge R. Paul Campbell today named a three-member board to conduct the recount of votes for the State Assembly post in all but six of the 41 precincts in the 77th District in Centre County. Clifford. A. Johnston of Phil-ipsburg, Earl K. Stock of Belle-fonte, and Harold D. Albright of State College were named as the board members. The recount is to begin next Monday. The district also includes the four precincts of Cooper Township in Clearfield County, but no recount has been called for there.

The body of the 71-year-old Clearfield man was found Saturday, 12 days after he suffered a fatal heart attack in the woods some six miles north of town. He was lying on his back, his head propped against a tree and his rifle just a foot or two away.

A riding horse, owned by Wil-ma Hart of Woodland, was also on the weekend casualty list. It was struck by a car Sunday afternoon and although extensively injured, survived the accident.  Twelve-year-old Gary L. Hart who was riding the,horse, was knocked to the ground but suffered only minor injuries. The accident happened on Route 17121 between Mineral Springs and Woodland; State Police reported that the driver of the car, William T.

By PEGGY SIMPSON - DALLAS, Tex (AP) - The physician in charge of Jack Ruby's treatment said today that Ruby's cancer is "not necessarily a hopeless case." Dr. Jay Sanford, professor of internal medicine at Southwestern- Medical School, said "that medical investigation into the primary source of the malignant disease may take more than a week. Ruby, 55, is the nonsmoking, nondrinking onetime Dallas night club operator who killed Lee Harvey Oswald, later identified by the Warren Commission as President John F. Kennedy's assassin. The Dallas Times Herald quoted an unnamed "source close to the medical aspects of the case" that the tumor has spread into too many vital areas, has escaped detection too long, and that doctors fear Ruby is "beyond hope." . Sanford said he talked with Ruby this morning and quoted Ruby as saying "I'm feeling-better this morning than I have in many months."

There was no immediate com ment from the Teamsters chief. Hoffa was tried in federal court in Chattanooga, Tenn., and was ( sentenced to eight years in prison and fined $10,-000. Physical Crisis Is Fifth in 10 Years For Ex-President By FRANK CARET WASHINGTON (AP)-Former President Dwight D. Eisenhower's condition was reported "good" by Walter Reed Army Hospital today following removal of his gall bladder. The report on the 76-year-old < Eisenhower's v condition, was made to newsmen about three-quarters of an hour after .the surgery had been completed. The hospital said fruther details would be forthcoming soon on the general's condition. . Maj. James Sonneborn of the hospital's public information staff said a further statement' would be made later on details of the' operation. Barring any unexpected complications, the five-star general apparently' has weathered still another major physical'crisis in a medical-surgical history that has included two heart attacks; a minor cerebral stroke; and ^abdominal surgery conducted 10 years ago. � There was evidence that .Eisenhower's medical history was a major factor in the doctor's decision to remove his gall bladder with its "multiple" gall stones. The doctors' intent apparent-, ly was to spare Eisenhower's heart any additional strain from the diseased gall bladder. There was no official word on exactly how long the operation lasted, but hospital announcements indicated it took between one and a half to two hours.. The surgery commenced at 1 a.m. (EST) as scheduled and and the hospital reported Eisenhower was back in his room in the VIP suite at 10:05 a:m. *,,'� "The operation has been completed and Gen.

Hoover produced a document backing his stand from the same FBI official Kennedy had quoted for his side. Then Kennedy called for Hoover to make his entire file public. "There is no indication that Mr. Hoover ever asked me for authorization for any single bugging device," said Kennedy. Another former attorney general, Kennedy successor Nicholas Katzenbach, emerged as a sort of would-be peacemaker with a terse statement giving credit to each side and in essence chalking the dispute up to misunderstanding.
