S. policy on revamping the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, while across the Atlantic officials are reported studying ways NATO could play a role in future East-West fence mending.

Reports indicated the discussion centered on a meeting of NATO ministers June 6-8 in Brussels. The United States reportedly will urge moving NATO's military and political headquarters from Paris to Belgium, streamlining the NATO setup and giving West Germany a bigger role. U.S. strategists want unanimity among American allies at the meeting. And, before Friday night's conference, Johnson met with Belgium's foreign minister, Pierre Harmel. in the latest of a series of NATO discussions with allied leaders visiting Washington. The conferences were prompted by French President Charles de Gaulle's plans to pull out of NATO's military system and his order to his 14 NATO allies to remove the organization's facilities from Frence within a year. In London, a British source said officials there were studying a new plan for allowing Please Turn to Page 3, Col. 2 Congressman Says U. S. Aid Insufficient By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON (AP) - A congressman just back from South' Viet Nam says U.S. aid programs there fail to supply the needs of the Vietnamese people or hold down inflation in the war-torn country. Rep. John E. Moss, D-Calif., who spent 10 days looking into administration of aid programs in South Viet Nam, said much of the difficulty is due (o inadequate foreign aid personnel. "We need better checks on end use to see that our assistance aids in combating inflation," he said in an interview. Moss also urged officials to "respond to the demands of the great mass of Vietnamese people" rather than take the word of local merchants concerning the needs of the Vietnamese. His assessment of the civilian aid programs came as the political crisis in Viet Nam caused State Department officials to consider removing about 400 American civilians from the Hue-Da Nang area.

The last two members of a trio of DuBois young men who were involved in a fight with DuBois police last March 12. were tried in the Clearfield County courts yesterday. One was convicted and the other acquitted. A jury of nine women and three men were out five hours and 15 minutes before finding 22-year-old Richard Wells of 215 Wilson Ave., guilty of disorderly conduct and resisting an officer. This was more than an hour longer than it took another jury on Thursday to convict his 19-year-old brother, Robert, of aggravated assault and battery on a police officer and obstructing an officer. The third member of the trio, Chester A. Burrs formerly of 15 Dixon Ave., and now of Rochester, N. Y, was acquitted in much faster time. The jury that found him not guilty of charges of obstructing an officer and disorderly conduct took less than an hour to bring in its verdict. The verdict caused Judge John A. Cherry to comment to the 22-year-old defendant, "You're a lucky young man. Perhaps in the future you'll use your hands for more than tipping a bottle ard you'll have more respect for an oath." His remark concerned conflicting testimony given in the three cases which had been tried separately at the request of the defendants. With a few exceptions the same people testified in all three cases. Excluding the police officers, they were friends or acquaintances of either one or all of the defendants and several Please Turn to Page 3, Col. 5 May 31 Is Deadline To Buy Ambulance Cards at Clearfield Clearfield area residents were reminded today that May 31 is the deadline for obtaining memberships in the ambulance drive sponsored annually by the No. 1 Fire Company of Clearfield.

Stock Market Begins To Show Signs of Life By ED MORSE AP Business News Writer NEW YORK (AP) - The badly mauled Wall Street bull began to show a few signs of life this week and got in a few licks against his enemy, the bear. It was the first time in three weeks that the stock market had been able to show two clear-cut rallies in a week. Still the market showed a loss based on most indicators, its fourth straight. Thanks to selective gains by some of its 30 stocks, however, the Dow Jones industrial average emerged with a gain of .78 at 876.89. It was the first advance in a four-------t-week stretch which saw-*-- U. 5. Families Stretch Budget; Pay Smaller By NEIL GILBRIDE WASHINGTON (AP) - Americans are stretching the already strained family budget even tighter with a sharp new rise in living costs. At the same time millions, of breadwinners are bringing home smaller paychecks. Latest government reports show living costs climbed faster for this time of year than in any similar period since the Korean War, while manufacturing cutbacks sliced the average pay of some 14 million factory work--ers. The Labor Department said prices for food. clothing, housing, transportation, medical care, recreation, and other living costs went up four-tenths of 1 per cent in April, the third straight substantial rise in the monthly consumer price index. There was no direct word from the White House on whether the developments might trigger some action, hinted at earlier by President Johnson, to raise taxes or drastically revise his wage-price guidelines aimed at halting inflation. But in a speech telephoned Friday night to a United Auto Workers convention in Long Beach, Calif., Johnson said the nation's economy does not depend on the stock market, which has been erratic of late, or on war spending. Game Commission Head Is Speaker Glenn 1.. Bowers, executive director of the Pennsylvania Game Commission, headlined today's program at the 30th annual Pennsylvania Trappers Association conference being held at Elliott State Park. Bowers was slated to speak at this morning's sessions, presumably on the Game Commission's decision to lift the bounty on fox. Election of officers was also on tap. Jack Hill of Philadelphia is the current president. The conference opened last evening with a directors meeting. weekly losses mounting to 20 and 30 points in the Dow. It has been a bear (or declining) market since Feb. 9 when the Dow industrials reached their historic peak of 955.15 and began sliding. By the end of last Tuesday's session, (he average had sunk 131.01 points, closing at 864.14. The next day the market put on its biggest rally in 11 months. The Dow industrials climbed 14.36 points. Had the bottom been reached? The answer was "no" from most analysis. "It is not a bottom," said one expert. "This is a sharp technical rally. We have got to lest this thing for a week or two." Another said it might be "a temporary bottom." He added, however, that "we might have to see-saw for a while, back-and-fill, try to make a base." When the next bull (or rising) market would gel under way was anyone's guess. Wall Street certainly was not out of the woods. Of 1,586 issues traded this week, losers outnumbered gainers by 960 to 488. The Associated Press average of 60 stocks fell 2.1 to 319.0. The pace of the decline, however, had been braked considerably. The week started with another jolting setback on Monday when members of the Business Council expressed concern that corporate profit margins would fall after midyear. The fear of civil war in Viet Nam and continued apprehension over a possible lax increase were other factors. Passenger Injured As Car Leaves Road Near Port Matilda Miss Gcorgiann L.

COYNE WASHINGTON (AP)-The tax collector has good news for Uncle Sam's budget balancers: Net tax receipts for April were 16 per cent above those of the same month last year. And if the trend continues - as government experts expect it will - the anticipated budget deficit for the fiscal year ending June 30 could shrink by $1 billion to $2 billion. Government experts won't discuss the prospects of a drop in the estimated $6.4 billion deficit. But it's no secret that receipts have exceeded expectations since the beginning of the year.

(AP) - Seated in a wheel chair, clutching a vase of roses, Peggy Ann Bradnick came out of seclusion Friday for the first time since her rescue Wednesday from a kidnaper-killer. "I feel much better than when 1 came here Wednesday," murmured the pretty 17-year-old girl, her eyes lowered, her voice barely audible in the waiting room of the Fulton County Medical Center. The 10-minute news conference was limited by her doctor, minister and parents to questions about the state of her health and her future plans. The story of Peggy's seven-day ordeal in the woods with a killer has been sold to a national magazine. Onlookers could see bruises on both her legs, the result of being pulled through the woods on Ihe end of a chain by her abductor, William Diller Hollen-baugh, 44.

The flying cavalrymen reported killing 24 more Viet Cong guerrillas from helicopters to raise to 122 the enemy dead so far in Operation Crazy Horse which began Monday. But for a third straight day, the war against the Communists was overshadowed by Vietnamese army civil war in Da Nang and Buddhist-led political turmoil in Saigon. The U.S. military command reported only one other action of any size in addition to Operation Crazy Horse.

Police said they were continuing their search of the cabin and the woods around it. but so far nothing had been uncovered that could be linked with Kathy Shea. northern province. American sources said Tri Quang repeated his demands for U. S. pressure lo oust the military government of Premier Nguyen Cao Ky. The American representatives met Tri Quang shortly after rebel fire in the embattled city of Da Nang injured 15 U. S. servicemen and after rebel troops fired mortars at the U. S. air base near the city. American military sources said they felt none of the attacks were deliberate but exposed American servicemen to additional danger. As Ky's air force bombed rebel forces in Da Nang and riot police clashed with more than 5,-000 Buddhist demonstrators in Saigon, Ky called a "civilian-military national people's congress" meeting for next Tuesday in an effort to end the strife. The congress is supposed to represent a cross-section of the country's political factions and is to discuss the ways of stabilizing the situations before the Sept. 11 election for a constituent assembly. Fifteen U.S. servicemen were wounded by mortars and rockets during clashes between rebel and government forces at Da Nang and some mortar shells fired from rebel positions landed at the U.S. air base near the city. But a U.S. spokesman in Saigon said there has been no indication that any fire had been specifically directed against U.S. troops. There was a report that Vietnamese marines loyal to Ky entered a Buddhist pagoda complex in Ihe western end of Da Nang where dissident troops have been holding out and (hat bodies of several monks were seen near a pagoda. The report could not be verified.
