Council did approve without a dissenting vote the re-appointment of three incumbents to other borough boards - Health, Park Authority and Zoning Board of Adjustment. It also approved use of two present residential lots,at North Front and East ---1--- Locust streets as a future Council OKV Pay Raises At Curwensville CURWENSVILLE - Borough Council was unable to.complete work, on the 1967 budget last night, but did approve several pay raises and decided to re-advertise for a third borough policeman. The reason for the delay in finishing the budget was a lengthy discussion on the police and salary raise issues. Council President Frank Harzinski expressed the hope that the budget will be ready for public inspection following the first meeting of 1967. The decision to re-advertise for a third full-time police patrolman was made because only two applications for the position have been received so far. The starting salary for the job was raised to $4,100 per year In the hope of attracting more candidates. The Borough requests that anyone who, wishes Old Tune, New Words MILWAUKEE, Wis. (AP) - Miss Kathleen Thews said her kindergarten class at Washington Elementary School was singing "Tannen-baum, 0 Tannenbaum" Thursday while rehearsing frr a Christmas play but a 6-year-old boy had his own version which he delivered lustily: "Atomic Bomb, O Atomic Bomb." "And he really thought he was right," Miss Thews said. Democrats Pick Three Senate Heads in Pa. Sen- parking lot. There were two candidates for the Authority position - incumbent L. E. Soult Sr., whose term expires this year, and Fred B. Hughes, onetime Council president. The vote by secret ballot ended with six votes for each man. Mayor Edward A. Clark could have cast the deciding ballot last night but he elected to defer his vote until the special meeting, if it is necessary at that time. The Borough Code provides this option for the mayor and stipulates that Council shall reconsider its vote at a special meeting to be held at least five days and not more than 10 days later. If Council remains deadlocked next Wednesday, then the mayor is obligated to cast the tie-breaking vote. There was no discussion by Council on the merits of the two candidates, but considerable discussion about the Authority, sewage rates and policies of the Authority. Councilman J.V. Marino touch-ed off the discussion by telling Council that although Authority members serve without pay they are permitted to purchase a $3,000 life insurance policy and HARRISBURG (AP) ate Democrats reelected their to receive compensation at the qu�i8 uwi anyone wnq wisnea h minoritv officers todav "te of $20 per week if they are L� f�' *eJ�* COntact ^ZZorl^TZZZ ill and unable to work.

A Glance Back at Events.   Quehanna Cycle Nears Full Circle By GEORGE A. SCOTT Editor, The Progress QUEHANNA - The cycle that smarted back in April of 1955 and transformed a 52,000-acre circle of wilderness dotted only by hunting camps and forest roads into a short-time industrial complex appears to be neqring its full circle. Once almost entirely owned by the State's Department of Forests and Waters and Game Commission, the 52,000 acres were turned over to the giant Curtiss-Wright Corporation by purchase and lease in 1955 for use as a research and development and manufacturing center. Yesterday, Dr. Maurice K.

Three speakers told an annual meeting of the Coal Mining Institute of America Thursday the industry's employment situation made a complete turnabout in a few years, and now coal mines need more manpower. W.F. Eigenbrod, director of the Department of Mines in West Virginia, said surveys indicate the industry will need 20,000 more workers in the next five years-12,000 of them in West Virginia. He said, "If the mining industry is to grow it must have skilled men and have them in a constant supply. We need a long-range coal miner training facility." Eigenbrod said a state-operated mine might serve as such a training facility. The industry had surplus manpower in the 1950s. Mines were closing and unemployment was high.
