LBJ Outlines Asian Peace Policy By LEWIS GULICK WASHINGTON (AP) - President Johnson has spelled out a four-poini policy for peace in Asia combining U. S. commitment against aggression theje with a continuing effort for improved relations with Red China. "The peace we seek in Asia is a peace of conciliation," Johnson said in a speech Tuesday night to the American Alumni Council. "Communists in Asia still believe in force to achieve their goals" and the United States, as a Pacific power, "will not retreat from the obligations of freedom and security in Asia" and particularly in Viet Nam, he said. But lasting peace depends on international trade, the free flow of people and ideas, the full participation of all nations in an international community and a common dedication to human progress and development, he said. Declaring that "a peaceful mainland China is central to a peaceful Asia," he said Peking must be discouraged from aggression hostility and encouraged toward peaceful cooperation with others. He cited U. S. efforts - so far unsuccessful - to open up travel between the United States and mainland China. Such U. S. initiatives will con- tinue, he said "because we believe that cooperation, not hostility,- is really the way of the future" toward a Pacific era in which America and Asia are partners across the ocean. In other developments Tuesday: Secretary of Stale Dean Rusk told a news conference that Peking and Hanoi are still showing no intent to end the Viet Nam war, and "we are not over the hump yet - we haven't begun to see the end of this thing yet" while North Vict Nam continues to send men and materiel against the South. Johnson called bipartisan congressional leaders to the White House to hear reports from Rusk, just returned from an Asian trip, and Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara and Richard Helms, intelligence chief. Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield and Republican Leader Everett M. Dirkscn said the report on Viet Nam was encouraging. A group of congressmen just back from Viet Nam reported in speeches to the House that the U. S. military position is greatly improved but the war's end remains a long way off. Most of the 14 set no time limit, but some said U. S. commanders believe victory possible in one or two years. Fair and turning cooler tonight, low in the 60s. Fair and cooler Thursday.

Veteran Virginia Lawmakers Upset By JOHN F. DAFFRON RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Sen. A. Willis Robertson and Rep. Howard W. Smith, both senior pillars of Virginia con-servativism, were upset in their bids for re-nomination in Tuesday's Democratic primary. Only Sen. Harry F. Byrd Jr. survived the strenuous moderate-to-liberal challenge to the political structure put _. together by his father 45 Glendale Board Sets Salaries, Okays Calendar COALPOJIT - The Glendale Board of Education, in a special meeting here last night, set salaries for the supervising principal, senior high principal and elementary supervisor, approved the school calendar and heard a report on thre site for the new school. The board was informed that Dr. Edward B. Turchick has accepted the position of supervising principal. His salary for the year was set at $11,000. �- -- John F. Smith and Calvin B. Stine, who at the board's last meeting were elected Coalport Center senior high principal and elementary supervisor, respectively, have not yet signed contracts for these positions. Their salaries were set at $10,500 for the first year. School will begin on Sept. 6 and close on June 6. The school calendar, which was given approval, listed the following holidays: Veterans Day, Nov. 11; Thanksgiving vacation, Nov. 24. 25; first day of deer season, years ago. Robertson, 79. lost a see-saw fight to state Sen. William B. Spong Jr., 45, a Portsmouth attorney, by the slimmest of margins-less than one-half of one per cent of the vote. The margin of defeat was essentially the same for Smith, 83, dean of the Virginia congressional delegation and chairman of the potent House rules committee.

The separate measures gained final congressional approval Tuesday with but a handful of dissenting votes. Under their terms, civilian workers would receive 2.9 per cent pay increases, plus additional fringe benefits totaling four-tenths of 1 per cent, while uniformed servicemen would receive 3.2 per cent pay raises. Covered by the $505.8-million civilian pay package are 1.2 million Civil Service employes and 600,000 postal workers. The military pay raise, estimated to cost $350 million its first year, was contained in a bill which also would authorize $17.4 billion for military spending. Both pay packages would be retroactive to July 1. County Native Is Killed in Accident Near Ohio Home YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Mrs. "Donald Hammer, 44, a former Curwensville, Pa., resident who had been making her home here, was killed instantly Saturday night in a hit and run accident near her home at Forest Lake Drive, Poland Township. Complete details of the accident are not available, but the victim was reportedly walking along the side of the road at the time of the mishap. Funeral services for Mrs. Hammer, the former Ann Louise Padisak, were held yesterday morning from the St. Charles Roman Catholic Church at Youngstown. Born at Curwensville, a daughter of Steve Padisak and the late Mrs. Teresa Ciprich Padisak, she is survived by her ESTAK Helps School Children In Viet Nam Operation ESTAK is not the" complete answer to the educational needs of children deprived of schooling by the war in Viet Nam. But through Educational Supplies To An Khe The Progress and WCPA hope to help a small group of Vietnamese. Capt. Robert M. Sheriff of Chester Hill will help teach some 800 children starting late next month in the town of An Khe. This campaign for funds for pencils, tablets and boxes of crayons or gifts of actual supplies is but a small part of the entire picture, even at An Khe. Capt. Sheriff said that "the Vietnamese government, through U. S. Aid, has programmed the construction of schools and hiring of teachers but this program falls short of the educational need." Why? Because the "Vietnamese government is not able to meet the demand for all schools and supplies at this time." As a result, American servicemen are pitching in. The six-room school at An Khe was completed last month. The chil-ren are ready to begin. But they need some of the basic tools . .. in this case, pencils, tablets and crayons. Financial gifts may be sent to: Newsroom, The Progress, Clearfield. Gifts of supplies may be taken to any Progress office or WCPA Radio. Touched Off by Hydrant Incident...

Clearfield Boy Hurt When Bike Is Hit by Auto An 11-year-old Clearfield boy is in satisfactory condition in Clearfield Hospilal today with injuries suffered when his bicycle was struck by a car at 5:30 p. m. yesterday. William C. Walker, 11, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Walker of 102 Elizabeth St., suffered cuts of the leg, facial bruises and brush burns of the arms when the bicycle he was riding was struck by a car on Route 322, about one mile west of Clearfield near the Riverside Market. State police from Clearfield said the car, operated by Mona R. Richner, 27, Mineral Springs, was traveling east and the Walker boy was riding west when the boy apparently crossed in front of the car to turn into the market. The boy was taken to the hospital by ambulance. The driver of the car was not injured. Police estimated damage at $25 to the Richner sedan and at $20 to the boy's bicycle.

Howard Reuning of Harris-burg, a representative of the Authority's consulting engineering firm, made a detailed report of an annual inspection conducted recently. He told the board that the collection system and treatment plant meet all the requirements of the engineers and the State Health Department. Authority Chairman James V. Marra, meanwhile, reported that the 22nd annual conference of the Pennsylvania Municipal Authorities Association would be held in Seplember and urged all board members to attend if possible EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the second in a series of three articles published to inform all Pennsylvanias regarding the New Pennsylvania Point System for motorists to be effective July 24, 1966. This article explains the importance of proper attitudes for drivers and how, under the new legislation, erring motorists have an opportunity to improve their driving habits by attending a Driver Improvement School. A third and final article will explain the new speed limits incorporated as part of the Point System law. When you are driving along at 50 miles per hour and an approaching car zooms past you with less than 24 inches separating the vehicles, did you ever stop to consider what the other driver was thinking about? You should. His altitude could kill you. Or more pointedly, your own subconscious thoughts might well contribute to a serious highway accident. Research into highway accident causes is proving that driver attitude plays a major role in the cause of numerous highway accidents. Among the first of the states to lake positive steps to improve the attitude of the motorist is the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The new philosophy - that of combining the point system and education - posed a problem for the Department of Revenue who was charged with the responsibility of administering the Act. The Revenue Department, financial arm of the State government, made a logical re- Navy Bombers Strike Another Negroes Roam Red Oil Depot Streets of Chicago 86. Clearfield Weather Tuesday low 65; High By ROBERT TUCKMAN SAIGON, South Vict Nam (AP) - Carrier-based U.S. Navy bombers left an oil depot northwest of Haiphong in smoke and flames Tuesday and for the first time in the Viet Nam war encountered old-model MIG15s. Two MIG15s, the first of the type built by the Soviet Union, were sighted near Hanoi, but did not engage the American raiders. The MIG15s, slow by present standards, made their combat debut in the early 1950s during the Korean War. The previous Communist jets encountered in this war have been MIG17s or the newer-model MIG21S. The U.S. command also announced thai American Air Force planes eluded a surface-to-air missile over North Viet Nam today. Two Army helicopters were shot down in South Viet Nam Tuesday bringing the number lost to enemy ground fire in the war to 181. The helicopter losses do not include those destroyed on the ground in Viet Cong attacks on airfields or -those downed by mechanical failure. An Army helicopter was shot down by ground fire 15 miles northwest of Saigon, injuring four Americans, the spokesman said. Another Army helicopter was brought down by guerrilla gunfire 45 miles northwest of Saigon. The spokesman said there were no casualties. Both helicopters were destroyed. \Air action dominated the war. Both U.S. and South Vietnamese military spokesmen reported no major ground contact with Communist troops. But South Vietnamese infantrymen claimed killing 32 Viet Cong in three clashes 30 miles north of the coastal city of Qui Nhon Tuesday. The vintage MIGs were spot-led by Navy planes as they By DAN McNULTY and LAWRENCE L. KNUTSON CHICAGO (AP) - Bands of Negro youths ran through a near Southwest Side neighborhood Tuesday night, breaking windows, looting stores and hurling rocks and homemade bombs. The disturbance was ignited during the late afternoon when police turned off a fire hydrant in the Negro neighborhood during hot, muggy weather. It was the second major disturbance in Chicago this summer. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., chairman of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and Negro community leaders helped police quiet the disturbance. Twenty-four Negroes were arrested and several persons were injured during the melee, including motorists whose car windows were shattered by rocks as they drove through the area. The incident came on a night when an 88-degree temperature enveloped the city. During the day, the mercury was 96. The disturbance at the fire hydrant began about 5;30 p.m. Please Turn to Page 10, Col. 2 Clearfield Marine, Serving in Viet Nam, Promoted to Serqeant Ex-Aide To Joint Chiefs Faces Charge WASHINGTON (AP) - A former military aide to (he Joint Chiefs of Staff has been accused of conspiring to deliver defense information to the Soviet Union. A federal grand jury indictment naming William Henry Whalen, a retired Army lieutenant colonel, said the information included data on atomic weapons, missiles and the retaliation plans of the Strategic Air Command. It said Whalen received a total of $5,500 on six occasions between December 1959 and March 1961 frojn two former Soviet Embassy officials who have returned home. There was no immediate explanation from the Justice Department nor the Pentagon on the gap of five years between the last alleged offense and the arrest. Whalen, 51 and now unemployed, was taken into custody Tuesday by FBI agents in suburban Alexandria, Va., where he lives. He was arraigned on the espionage conspiracy charge, which carries a maximum penalty of death, and released several hours later after posting $15,000 bond. The two Soviets, Col. Sergei Edemski and Mihail S. Shu-maev, were named as coconspirators in the indictment returned by a grand jury in Newport News. Va. The Justice Department said the two were not charged because they are no longer in the United States. Edemski, former assistant Soviet military attache, returned home in February 1960 and Shumaev, former first secretary, returned in September 1963, the department said. Overnight low 65.

The AFL-CIO International Association of Machinists halted the talks ..nd accused Northwest Airlines, one of five companies shut down by the walkout, of putting economic pressure on its employes living in the airline's compound in Tokyo. Northwest denied knowledge of any violations of the Aug. 9, 1965, union-management agreement "to keep things the way they are" pending the outcome of contract talks. Today's meeting, sources said, will attempt to determine whether there is any basis for the IAM complaint and whether the Tokyo developments were local in nature or connected with the Northwest headquar- Searing Heat Causes Critical Power Situation By W. JOYNES MACFARLAN WASHINGTON (AP) - Chairman Lee C. White of the Federal Power Commission said today the searing heat wave is causing a critical electric power situation in mojjt of the nation east of the Rockies. But he said he does not /ore-see any massive power failure such as the one that blacked out the Northeast last November. In an interview, White also said the power outage that darkened two-thirds of Nebraska Monday "was a clear indication of the need for better and stronger interconnection" between systems. He said if the Nebraska system had had stronger interties to the West "perhaps the difficulty could have been overriden without any outages." "The future of the power industry rests in efficient and effective interconnection and coordination," White declared.

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS HARRISBURG (AP) - Senate Republicans vow they'll give Democrats one more week to decide whether or not to co-sponsor the Scranton Administration's constitutional revision package. "We'll introduce the package Monday with or without Democratic sponsorship," Sen. Jack E. McGregor, R - Allegheny, said Tuesday. McGregor, chairman of the Constitutional Changes Committee, had hoped to introduce the eight proposed amendments this week with bipartisan sponsorship. Democrats balked, however, contending they needed more time to study the proposals, particularly one dealing with judicial reform. All eight bills have the backing of the Pennsylvania Bar Association, which for the past several years has sought a major overhaul of the state's 93-year-old constitution. Rules Committee Controls future Of Simpson Probe HARRISBURG (AP) - The fate of a Democratic attempt to investigate Gov. Scranton's firing of Charles G. Simpson from the State Board of Education now rests with the Republican-controlled Rules Committee in the Senate. An effort by Senate Democrats to have an investigation resolution considered immediately Tuesday was beaten down 12-17, on a party line vote. The resolution then went to the rules committee. Scranton removed Simpson, a fellow Republican, from the education board earlier in the day. Simpson frequently had found fault with the board and more recently with the forth coming Master Plan for Higher Education. "There will be many months of debate, I can assure you, on the Simpson firing," Sen. Benjamin R. Donolow, a Philadel-phian like Simpson, said. "This will not be forgotten on our (Democratic) side unless there is a hearing." Sen. William G. Sesler, D-Erie, introduced the resolution Decatur Township Supervisors Pass Ordinance on Dogs OSCEOLA MILLS - The Decatur Township supervisors at their July meeting Monday adopted an ordinance for the control of dogs and made two changes on the township planning commission.

Will Stay For Several More Days St. Louis Hard Hit; Flooding Adds To Misery in Ohio By TI1E ASSOCIATED PRESS Summer's longest heat wave gripped most of (he eastern two-thirds of the nation today, causing widespread misery and inconvenience.

The company cut off power Tuesday to 350,000 customers on a rotating basis up to two hours. Other cities also have reported power shortages this week, including four in Nebraska. Many cities reported record consumption of power because of the use of cooling devices. Violent storms broke out Tuesday and Tuesday night in widely scattered sections of the country.
