Argentina's Government Ousted By KENNETH L. DAVIS BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) - Argentina's military leaders overthrew elected President Arturo Illia during the night in a swift bloodless coup aimed at shutting the Peronists out of the political picture. The usually mild-mannered president, who had served 32 months of his six-year term, holed up for the night in Casa Rosada, the pink stone seat of government, and defied the gen- erals this morning to remove him by force. But within 20 minutes he was on his way to an undisclosed destination - perhaps under arrest. Military sources said the army commander in chief who led the coup, Lt. Gen. Pascual A. Pistarini, and the commanders of the navy and air force would form a governing junta and then would install Lt. Gen. Juan Carlos Ongania, the former army commander in chief and the country's most prominent military man, as interim president. 1 Vice President Carlos Perelte fled across the Plate River to Uruguay during the night. The rest of the 65-year-old president's Cabinet stood with him as he defied Maj. Gen. Julio R. Alsogaray, commander of the 1st Army Corps who asked Illia to leave Casa Rosada. Illia told Alsogaray he was Argentina's constitutional presi- dent and would not surrender to force. A government source said the president left the building at 6:55 a.m. but did not disclose the circumstances. Although troops of the presidential guard had mounted machine guns in the halls and entrances of Casa Rosada, Also-garay's troops ringed the building and occupied it without trou- Please Turn to Page 3, Col. 4 Officers Named Hospital Board PHILIPSBURG - Election of officers, appointment of the medical staff and discussion on the renewal of a contract with Dr. Clark Forcey, hospital radiologist, highlighted last night's regular meeting of the Philipsburg State General Hospital Board of Trustees. Results of the board's election are: Arthur Rydberg, president; Ned Cummings, vice president; and Mrs. G. Richard Holdren, secretary. Re-appointment, of doctors on the active, consulting and dental staffs, in addition to the election of board officers, always occurs in June during the board's final meeting of the year. The terms for both the doctors and the board officers begin July 1 and expire on June 30 of the next year. Dr. Forcey's contract as radiologist at the hospital is also renewed annually and will expire on June 30. He has stipulated that if the contract isn't renewed by July 1, there will be no special studies done in the X-ray department. The contract, which was first sent to the proper authorities at Harrisburg in February, was returned to the hospital in March Young Clearfield Girl Helped by Firemen A one-year-old Clearfield R.D. girl, Joyce Ann Flanagan, is in good condition in her home today, thanks to the aid of the Tyrone Fire Company which provided a happy ending to what could have been a tragic story. Mr. and Mrs. John Flanagan of Clearfield R. D. 1 were en route home from Altoona Saturday evening when their little daughter became feverish and convulsive. Sensing the need for immediate aid, the family flagged down a truck and ambulance of the Tyrone Fire Co.

Boy Satisfactory After Mishap On Clearfield Street A five-year-old Clearfield boy is in satisfactory condition at Clearfield Hospital today after he was struck by a car yesterday afternoon. Timothy Dodge, son of Mrs. Donna L. Dodge of 304 Park Ave., suffered bruises and brush burns of the head and forehead and leg injuries when he was struck by a car driven by Del-phine Rumsky, 34, Glen Richey. The accident occurred at 1 p.m. yesterday at the intersection of Clinton and South Fourth streets. Clearfield borough police reported that the driver said the boy ran out from behind a parked car. There was no property damage. The boy was taken to the hospital by the driver. Two Tyrone teenagers were injured and their car was demolished in an accident at 0:30 o'clock last night at Sandy rVeafc Cold front Does Little for Heat in State By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS A very weak cold front pushed southward into Pennsylvania today, but the Weather Bureau said it would not bring much relief to the steamy southern area. Pennsyvania was caught in a high-pressure system that had brought fair skies and a sometimes searing sun Monday. Adding to the misery was high humidity in many parts of the state. The weather bureau said however temperatures today should not be quite as high as those of Monday when the mercury had reached 100 degrees al Harrisburg and Allentown and % in Pittsburgh. The temperature rose to 93 at Philadelphia. An electrical storm swept over parts of southeastern Pennsylvania Monday night, setting fire to two buildings and blacking out hundreds of houses. Accompanying showers, however, did little to break the hot, muggy grip on the area. Radio Audience Of Comeback BULLETIN ABC Newscaster Paul Harvey followed through with a promise made at Clearfield last night to tell the nation about the industrial comeback of this area. On his noon broadcast from Chicago today Mr. Harvey held up the Clearfield area's industrial progress as an example for the entire country. His remarks will be published by The Progress tomorrow. By WILLIAM G. WILLIAMS Progress Newt Editor Nationally-known newscaster Paul Harvey told some 400 persons last night that he plans to tell the Clearfield-Curwensville industrial development story to His radio audience as an example of what Americans can do to help themselves. At an Industrial Salute Dinner in the New Dimeling Hotel the Chicago-based ABC personality said that one of his upcoming broadcasts will tell of this area's comeback from an economic slump.--- Sidelights Give Emphasis To Harvey Event By WILLIAM F. LEE Progress Staff Writer When the dynamics of the speaker, the heat of the room, the list of prominent guests and the nature of the salute were combined, the effect of last night's industrial salute dinner was overwhelming. While the central event of the evening was the address by ABC commentator Paul Harvey, there were several sidelights surrounding the dinner which made the evening all the more noteworthy. Slashing away at "lazy Americans" who accept public welfare rather than work for a living, Mr. Harvey said that those on relief are not always to blame for their dilemma. "It's our own fault. We can kill them with kindness." He predicted that a continued attitude of accepting handouts rather than attempting honest work could lead to the country's downfall. The award-winning commentator, whose broadcasts are heard locally on WCPA Radio, held his humidity-soaked audience spellbound for an hour as he delivered a forceful address on life in these times. Impatient Americans, he said, expect an immediate cleanup of the world's problems. But this is a disorderly planet and will always be that way, Harvey continued. This earthly life isn't supposed to be paradise; there will always be work to be done. Harvey, who was introduced by WCPA Vice President and General Manager Al Dame as "a courageous commentator," pulled no punches as he offered the opinion that the United Mr. Harvey's remark on his noon radio program yesterday that he was happy to be traveling to the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country prompted some Ctearfielders to worry that he Please Turn to Page 10, Col. 6 Please Turn to Page 10, Col. 3 Please Turn to Page 10, Col. 5 Smooth Start Predicted ...

By GEORGE NEWMAN Associated Press Writer The nation's hospitals are as ready as they can be for the start of the medicare program on Friday, officials say. Federal, state and local officials concerned with medicare held news conferences throughout the nation Monday to discuss the state of readiness of the program to provide hospital care under Social Security for those 65 and older. --- For the most part, they predicted a smooth start for medicare. Bui a few said they expected hospital facilities to be severely taxed by an influx of aged persons who have put off needed care. Others admitted they weren't Although many of the nation's physicians, through the American Medical Association and other doctors' groups, vigorously opposed enactment of medicare, officials said Monday they expected the doctors to cooperate. Physicians were counted quite sure what to expect on on (o help foreslaU anv rush Friday and declined to specu-  ��  late whether there would be a rush to the hospitals by the elderly. "Hospitals will be able to handle the situation in cooperation with patients," said Donald Dunn, executive director of the Minnesota Hospital Association. because patients need their doctors' approval for hospital admission. If troubles come, the concensus was, it will come in those areas already short of medical facilities.
