State Fiscal Fight Far From Resolved HARRISBURG (AP) - The fiscal fight currently going on in the General Assembly appeared far from resolved today as the House returned in solo session. There was increased speculation that the politically divided legislature would not agree on the 1966-67 budget before August, thus necessitating the enactment of stopgap appropriations. The Republican - controlled Senate passed three such appropriations on Tuesday and sent them to the House, where majority Democrats quickly secured commit- - tee approval for two of them. _ t% r 4%l Since the 1966-67 fiscal vear School POSt 26 To Graduate !,f ^U* 'i,S",rpS - ft #� | | leave the state government Pi1!!

(AP) - Hurricane Alma battered the Cuban capital of Havana with 117-mile-anhour winds and a deluge of rain today, then slammed into the Gulf of Mexico bound for Key West. Unweakcncd in the crossing of the Cuban island, the storm clung lo a north - northeast course that could take the eye close to Key West and bring the lightly populated lower Florida west coast in close range. The storm may have dealt a damaging blow to the Cuban sugar crop-mainstay of Fidel Castro's economy-and to other crops in that food-rationed nation. Gale warning flags flew halfway up the Florida mainland a3 the hurricane approached. For two days, Alma had crawled at a snail's pace across the Caribbean with no outside weather forces exerting any influence on its movements. Today, however, a high-altitude cyclonic circulation over the eastern Gulf of Mexico began to affect the hurricane, speeding its forward movement and pulling it slightly off its north-northeast track more toward a northward path. If this continues, the Weather Bureau said, Alma might move up Florida's west coast toward the city of Fort Myers after passing very close lo Key West, at the bottom tip of the Florida Keys. Such a movement would bring only the outer gales of the storm to Miami. When Alma moves off Cuba into the Florida Straits, the Weather Bureau warned, there will be a possibility of tornadoes Please Turn to Page S,Col.'4 Please Turn to Page 8, Col. 3 Bids Sought For Concession at Dam HARRISBURG - Bids have been asked by the State Department of Forests and Waters for a state park concession at the Curwensville Dam.

OSCEOLA MILLS - The old bank building, formerly the home of The County National Bank, is being prepared for use as a community center. The borough leased the property from the bank last month. It is expected that the borough offices and council members will be moved into the new community building in the future. The borough presently uses rooms in the building owned by the Columbia Fire Company. Details concerning the new dump operated by Peter Swis-tock of Houtzdale consumed much of the time at the June meeting of Borough Council held Monday evening.

Five Negro leaders combined forces to carry on the 225-mile walk to Jackson, Miss., started by Meredith and interrupted by three shotgun blasts. Aubrey J. NorvcJl, 40. a Memphis white man accused of assault with intent to murder in the wounding of Meredith with birdshot, was held under $25,000 bond. His lawyers were drafting an appeal to have the bond reduced. Three bus loads of sympathizers from Chicago will join the march soon, said Floyd McKis-sick, head of the Congress of Racial Equality.

S. paratroopers all but wiped out a determined battalion of North Vietnamese regulars today after two days of bitter fighting, a military spokesman reported. He said the enemy left 292 dead strewn over a five-mile battlefield in the central highlands after offering stiff resistance. The picture given by the U. S. spokesman indicated a significant victory over the enemy troops after a weeklong lull in ground action in South-- Viet Nam. The Communists hit back with a blistering mortar attack on a U.S. military advisers' compound in the Mekong Delta, killing some Americans. A squadron of helicopters poured more men of the 101st Airborne Brigade into the raging fight 260 miles northeast of Saigon as South Viet Nam's political crisis took a calmer turn. The moderate leader of the Buddhist Institute called for a halt to rioting and human sacrifices but said his followers will continue to struggle in a "nonviolent spirit" to overthrow Premier Nguyen Cao Ky's regime.
