Vol. 60 No. Curwtnivllle, Philipsburg, Moshonnon Valley, PAGES TODAY Viet Nam Talks Begin Rusk To Assure Southern Leaders Of LBJ's Efforts By THOMAS A. REEDY SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) Secretary of State Dean Rusk launched, a whirlwind round of talks with South Viet Nam's top leaders today, re- portedly to assure them Presi- dent Johnson's peace efforts will not undercut the Saigon re- gime. Rusk, accompanied by special presidential envoy W. Averell Harriman, met briefly with Chief of State Lt. Gen. Nguyen Van Thieu and then talked for an hour with Premier Nguyen Cao Ky and Foreign Minister Iran Van Do. "We had very interesting talks. We are going to see each other again Rusk told newsmen, apparently referring to his dinner engagement with Ky. He declined to say what sub- jects were discussed at the meetings, but diplomatic sources said he came here to tell Ky that Johnson's diplo- matic moves on ending the war in Viet Nam would not pull the rug from under Ky's regime. Husk also met with U.S. Am- bassador Henry Cabot Lodge and other American officials. Ky, in a speech at the closing ceremony of the second Armed Forces' Day congress warned that whatever peace moves are generated, "no other nation is qualified and able to decide our destiny, independently of our own will." He praised the current peace offensive with a special word for Pope Paul VI, but warned all would-be peace makers to beware of making any deals without his government's sanc- tions. "We have accepted and are grateful for the moral and ma- terial, military and economic assistance .from the friendly he said.

Escapes With About Masked Man Holds Up Clearfield Budget Plan Aii gunman, described as cool, calm and col- lected held up the Budget Plan office at Clearfield late Friday afternoon and fled with about in cash. Mrs, Pauline D. Dixon of-Wal- laceton, the only employe of the firm on duty at the time, lold investigating officers the gun- man walked into the loan office at 202 N. Third St. alone at about o'clock. She said he was. wearing a knitted ski-type mask pulled over his face' and walked over to her and said: "Give me all of your money." Then he dis- played a revolver and Mrs. Dix- on went to the cash drawer and gave him all of the money in the drawer. The bandit took the money, left the office and started walk- ing toward North Second Street on East'Pine Street. That was the last Mrs. Dixon saw of'the holdup man. Policemen were called to the' scene immediately and state po- lice put up road blocks at Punxsutawney, Philipsburg and DuBois but to no avail. Officers reported the man they are looking for is a dark complcxioned white male Ameri- can, about 30 years of age, 5 feet 8 inches to 6 feet tall, of slender build, weighing 150-160 pounds and with dark, deep-set eyes. At the time of the holdup, the suspect was wearing a dark colored, all-weather coat, dark wash-wear trousers that were in need of a press and oxford- type shoes. A man fitting the description of the holdup man was seen loitering in the area of the loan company at about 5 o'clock. Persons near the office told po- lice they noticed a man wear- ing a dark blue, sock-type cap. Clearfield Borough Patrolman Richard Shaffer and State Po- lice Troopsr Edward Jezewski are heading the investigation and anyone with any informa- tion has been asked to call the borough police at 765-7881 or the state police at 765-3111. The loan company, with par- ent offices at Huntingdon, is managed by Ronald M. Mc- Glaughlin of Clearfield R. D. 2. The armed robbery was the second in a year at Clearfield. In January 1965, Bob's Distrib- uting at 313 Spruce St. was held up with that holdup man later apprehended and sentenced to a term in jail. Three Burned Out... Fire Guts Home At Curwensville CURWENSVILLE A Curwensville grandmother and her grandson and his wife were left homeless last night when fire gutted their two-story home at 423 George St. There was no one home at the time fire was discovered in the Mrs. Viola Garman home by her son, Paul. At the time, Mrs. Garman was visiting her sister, Miss Alice Weis who is a patient in the Clearfieid Hospital. The Curwensville firemen were summoned by telephone fat a neighbor's home, but the dense smoke in the house hampered them in their ef- forts to battle the stubborn blaze. By the time they ar- rived, the fire had gained such headway that their booster lines were of little Italian Premier Expected To Press Peace By BENNET M, BOLTON ROME (AP) Italian Pre- mier Aldo Moro, bolstered by a confidence vote in the Chamber of Deputies, was expected lo press ahead today with efforts to help end the Viet Nam war. Moro won the vote by 325 to 154, well above the 240 votes needed. He closed the two-day debate with a speech supporting President Johnson's diplomatic offensive to get Viet Nam peace talks started. "We have encouraged the American government above all in that vigorous and sincere peace initiative which began with the Christmas truce and the indefinite suspension of bombing in North Viet Moro said. The premier added that, in "this particularly decisive mo- ment" of the Viet Nam crisis, Italy was trying to help on three peace fronts: Recommending to its allies and friends patience and a will to negotiate.

Cherry has ruled that Hazel C. Taylor is the winner of a Chester Hill borough council seat that -the Clearfield County Board of op-" ponent, George S. Wilcox. Wilcox, a Democrat, received 115 votes in the Novem- ber General Election. Mrs. Taylor received 101 votes on the Republican ballot and 54 the Democratic one. Key Workers Warned for County March of Dimes The County Board of Elections refused, however, to cumulate Mrs. Taylor's votes, on the basis that she had appeared on the ballots under two different names. The Republican ballot carried her name as "Hazel C- Taylor" and the Democratic ticket as "Hazel Taylor." The Board of Elections based its stand on the section of the Election Code that states that "no candidae for public office at any November election whose name, for any reason, is, print- ed more than once for the same office on any ballot at any gen- eral election, shall be entitled to have cumulated, either by election officers, the county board, or any court, the votes after such different names. Mrs. Taylor appealed to the courts the decision of the Board of Elections which certified her opponent, Mr. Wilcox as winner of the council seat. In the decision upholding Mrs. Taylor's claim, Judge Cherry said he did not find that Mrs. Taylor's could be considered to have appeared in a "different fashion or manner under the circumstances of the case." He noted that her name had been listed as "Hazel C. Tay- Please Turn to Page 10, Col. 3 Partly cloudy tonight and Sunday. Few very light mow flurries and colder tonight. Continuned cold Sunday.

Mr. Harrier emphasized the importance of this mailer cam- the present session because of his anti-Viet Nam stand. About marchers rallied at the state Capitol Friday to demand that Bond, an officer of the Student Nonviolent Coordi- nating Committee, be sworn in. The rally, led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., erupted into violence when about 50 demon- strators suddenly rushed state patrolmen and pummeled them with signs, pocketbooks and um- brellas. Afterward, James Forman, SNCC executive secretary, said a rally would be held at City value which meant they had to lay larger lines from two hydrants more than a half block away. The firemen stayed on the scene for more than three and a half hours after they were summoned at o'clock. The blaze was believed to have been started from an overheated fur- nace. Mrs. Garman made her home with her grandson. James Bloom and his wife. Officials estimate the loss Hall today, spokesman but another SNCC said Friday night plans for the rally were'uncer- tain. In a related development, U.S. Dist. Judge Lewis R. Mor- gan ruled Friday Bond's case challenging the General Assem- bly's action would be heard by a three-judge panel. The federal suit, however, apparently will not come before the middle of next week. Mor- gan said that state officials are legally allowed five days to file a reply before a hearing can be held.

President Johnson Thursday attacked the settlement the 12-day bus and subway strike as inflationary. He said the terms exceeded the government's 3.2 per cent guideline on wages and prices. Republican Mayor John V. Lindsay suggested that Johnson "was not as familiar with all the facts of this case as was Wirtz." He was referring to W. Wil- lard Wirtz, secretary of labor, who fired off a telegram to Lindsay Friday night saying Johnson's statement reflects the facts in this case as I know them." He added: "Your recollection and your arithmetic are wrong. The settlement may have been Hospital attendants said he is scheduled to undergo X-ray examination today to determine the full extent of his injuries. The driver of the car, 17-year- old James Hall of 1617 Daisy St., told police he was traveling south on Second street near Lo- cust street when he saw a truck ahead of him stopping. He applied the brakes on his 1958 sedan but found they would not work. He pulled into the left lane of traffic when he no- ticed an oncoming car so he jumped the curb and went onto the sidewalk to avoid a collision. The car went up on the side- walk in front of the YMCA and continued on in-front of the Courthouse Annex, the Clear- field Trust Company, and the main Courthouse and then re- enitered the street at the inter- section of Market and Second streets and continued on North Second street to the Sherwin- necessary to relieve the city from unconscionable bondage. But it was unquestionably out- side the stabilization policies." A spokesman for the mayor said Lindsay had not received the telegram and would have no comment on it until he did. The transportation crisis end- ed before dawn Thursday when the Transit Authority and the striking unions agreed on a set- tlement estimated at between S52 and million over two years.

He is assigned to the Second Battalion, Third Regiment, Third Marine Division which was part of the U. S. fighting force in Viet Nam prior to its arrival on Okinawa.
