Clearfield Progress (Newspaper) - February 21, 1966, Clearfield, Pennsylvania \ PAGE TEN THE PROGRESS, Clearfield, Curwensville, Philipsburg, Moshannon Valley, Pa., Monday, February 21, 1966 National Elections Pledged for South Viet Nam RfKPIm - (From Page 1) - further that Kennedy's suggestion would be like having an arsonist in the fire department. Ky, queried about Kennedy's .suggestion in Saigon, snapped: "The so-called National Liberation Front does not liberate anybody. They killed 11,000 of our troops last year and 22,000 of the innocent people in the countrysides. They murdered them. "They are, 1,000 per cent Communist and they are illegal," the prime minister added, "so let's not talk about the National Liberation Front any more," Kennedy suggested Saturday that 'the National Liberation Front, the political arm of the Vict Cong, must be brought to the bargaining table. To "admit them to a share of power and responsibility," the New York Democrat said, "is at the heart of a negotiated settlement." McGeorge Bundy, special as sistant to President Johnson for security affairs and an old Ken nedy family friend, disagreed Appearing Sunday on NBC's radio-television program "Meet the Press," Bundy said he did not want to comment directly on the proposals, but then added: "I can say that the administration does not take the view that admitting the Communists to a share of the power and responsibility would be a useful or helpful step - one that would really lead to peace. "I think our view is rather that what is needed is a sufficient degree of peace in that country and of absence of subversion and terror so .there can be reasonable expression of the political feeling of tiie people in Viet Nam. ',' ^' , "We axe in favor i>f that. We are prepared to abide by the result." ; Undersecretary of State George W. Ball described the Kennedy proposal as "not a thoroughly new idea." He added that it "doesn't seem to us to be an acceptable solution." Speaking on ABC's radio-television program "Issues and Answers," Ball said the North Vietnamese government wants the United States "to recognize the (National Liberation) Front as the sole government of the South Vietnamese. They won't even think of negotiating unless we accept his premise. "Our own feeling," he added, "is if we accede to the idea of a coalition government, we would have to exclude all the representatives of the South Vietnamese government. That's what the North Vietnamese want. "We are not going to deliver the people of South Viet Nam into the hands of the North Vietnamese," Ball concluded. Sen. George D. Aiken, R-Vt, said on the CBS radio-television program "Face the Nation" that "it is not my opinion that it's up to the United States to offer the Viet Cong a share in the Saigon government "Unless our policy has changed," Aiken said, "I would say that Sen. Kennedy's propo-posal is considerably out of order and that it would be up to South Viet Nam to make the proposal to share the responsi bility of the government." Sen. J. W. Fulbright, chair man of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee which on Fri day concluded televised public hearings into the administra tion's Viet Nam policies, declined to comment on the Kennedy suggestion. But committee member Sen Wayne Morse, D-Ore., said Ken nedy is "pointing in the right direction in which we will have to go." Morse, a leading critic of the administration's Viet Nam policies, told a news conference in Harrisburg, Pa., the proposed $4.8-billion Viet Nam military authorization bill contains a "sleeper" that could escalate the war. He said Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara testified during the recent Foreign Relations Committee hearings that the authorization bill would provide for increasing troop deployments to Viet Nam and raising the rate of air activity there, if: the President decides to do so. Morse said that testimony, in effect, indicates that the military authorization bill empowers the escalation of war if the President asks for it. "Any senator who votes for the bill votes for an escalation of the war," Morse said. The Senate resumes its debate on the money bilj today.

The transaction involved, in addition to the good will, two teams of horses, a wagon, harness, a wooden tub in which bottles were washed and a foot-powered machine capable of bottling 10 to 12 cases of soft drinks an hour. The original plant was located in an alley near the rear of the three-story brick building and apartment house later built by Mr. Callahan on Reed Street. In 1915,. the Callahan firm which by that time also included a brother, the late W. H. (Hobe) Callahan as partner, was awarded the Coca-Cola franchise in the community.
