Lull in Ground Fighting Continues on Viet Front By ROBERT TUCKMAN SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) - The U. S. and South Vietnamese commfcnds reported 75 Communists killed in small skirm ishes in the past 24 hours as the lull in ground fighting in the Viet Nam war continued for the third day. Continuing foul weather once again slowed the U. S. air offensive. The U. S. command reported 53 enemy killed in more than a dozen patrol contacts. The South Vietnamese headquarters said their forces killed 22 Communists in -�- three small engagements. Vietnamese headquarters also reported that a Viet Cong force ambushed a 17-vehicle Vietnamese military convoy this morning on its way to the mountain city of Dalat, causing some casualties. The ambush 98 miles northeast of Saigon was the third in the Dalat area in less than a week. There were no details on the number of government casualties or damage inflicted to the convoy. U. S. Air Force B52 bombers returned to the central highlands near Cambodia today and struck at North Vietnamese troop concentrations 35 miles northwest of Pleiku. Sources at the Pentagon in Washington said about 20 more of the big bombers have joined the 30-plane fleet, based on Guam, and the U. S. command plans to step up bombing raids against Communist troop concentrations and supply areas. U. S. pilots flew only 39 bombing missions over North Viet Nam Monday as the monsoon rains and low clouds continued into the third week. Five of the raids were against North Vietnamese positions in' the demilitarized zone between North and South Viet Nam. American pilots flew 311 strike sorties over South Viet-Nam Monday and South Viet-; riamese": pilots flew; 162. A U.

Snow Aids Deer Hunters; Kills Listed Rain-soaked hunters continued to report deer kills yesterday and those who were unsuccessful had brighter faces today as snow made tracking of the elusive whitetail possible.

But in the case evolving from the proposed merger of the Central and Pennsylvania, says the Central, the facts don't justify such protection payments even if they are okayed by the ICC. Three small eastern railroads want the Penn-Central to pay them for any loss of stock value resulting from business losses because of the merger of their competitors. The Central said at Monday's session of a reopened ICC hearing that legislation establishing the regulatory body pro- A CHANGE OF SCENERY ^ The district's first big snowstorm of the season turned a somewhat drab landscape into a bright white today.

At t hat time he was tracking down a deer he had wounded. A search which was started last night was continued this morning under the direction of Lawrence Township Fire Chief Kenneth Rowles and Clearfield County Deputy Sheriff John Gordon. Participating in it are firemen from Lawrence Township, Clearfield, and Penfield as well as hunetrs and other volunteers. , A call for additional searchers and also Channel 11 walkie-talkies was made this morning.

' Among the equipment; that has been offered for the search is an airplane belonging to a Weedville resident. It was believed that "this plane would be used this afternoon if Mr. Gordon is still missing. A search was also started last evening for a 15-year-old New Kensington youth, Richard Danvir, who became separated from his party in the late afternoon while in the Parker Dam area. However, he was found safe' and sound less than three hours 'after he was reported missing. Search parties worked under a handicap last night.

HOFFMAN LONG BINH, South Viet Nam (AP) - Operation Attleboro, the biggest U. S. action of the Viet Nam war, cracked open one of the toughest and oldest of the Viet Cong's strongholds. That is the judgment of Maj. Gen. Fred C. Weyand, who directed the 43-day operation involving some 25,000 American soldiers in the tangled jungles of Tay Ninh Province northwest of Saigon. "We started the end of War . , , .. Zone C as a sanctuary for the ho,^^�*" S"P-PllIh. VC," Weyand said in an interview at his headquarters here. "War Zone C will never be the same." The Communists have controlled the area stretching to the a tank regiment Cambodian border for 20 years 0nce the communist or more. Court Refuses New Injunction In Rail Merger NEW YORK (AP) - A three judge federal court, noting that the merger of the Pennsylvania and New York Central Railroads has already been stayed until January, refused to declare a new injunction against the consolidation. Oscar Gruss and Sons, New York investment bankers, had sought to hold up the merger or require simultaneous inclusions of the bankrupt New Haven line. An appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court on the merger is scheduled for a hearing Jan. 9. A pre-winter snowstorm blew into the Clearfield County-Mo-shannon Valley area yesterday leaving varying accumulations of from four to seven inches. Motorists, confronted with their' first hazardous driving challenge of the season, took it in stride and only one skidding accident was reported in the entire district. The snow, heavy and wet, clung to tree limbs and utility lines, straining them almost to the breaking point. Utility com- panies reported some temporary service curtailments. All main roads were plowed and in good condition today with the exception of a few icy spots. Secondary and mountain roads were still hazardous, but passable, according to the State Highway Department. The department utilized more than 100 men and upwards of 40 trucks to fight the storm, which began when rain turned to snow early yesterday afternoon. Many worked through the night plowing and cindering. Hunters welcomed the snow, which provided ideal tracking conditions on the second day of the antlered deer season. Rain and heavy fog most of yesterday morning kept many out of the woods and, consequently, cut down the opening day harvest. The rain turned to snow earlier in the day in the mountain sectors of the county and by early today up to seven inches Please Turn to Page 2, Col. 1 Weyand said he decided to call off the operation because it no longer was worth the heavy resources assigned to it - elements of two U.S. Army divisions, parts of two brigades and mand decided the com-American The general did not claim that opposition was t00 great Wey. the Viet Cong's hold on Zone C and said) the Viet Cong 9th Divi- has been broken.

As a rule, when a person passes the mill, he doesn't associate money with it, but perhaps it wouldn't be a bad idea if he did, Robert K. Meredith, director of quality control at the mill, pointed out. "The mill returns more than a million dollars annually to area interests for the purchases of coal and pulpwood," Mr. Meredith said. ' "Of the total of pulpwood purchased by the mill," he said "475,000 cords representing $765,000, come from the Clearfield area."

General Assembly was expected to hold the line again today against seating Red China. A plan to turn the issue over to a U. N. study group was given an even chance of approval. Delegates predicted that the U. S. request for a two-thirds vote on the representation questions would pass again and kill any chance of seat- --- ing Peking this year. There was speculation that an Italian proposal to have a special U.N. committee study the question for a year might carry, opening the way for a solution to the 16-year-old stalemate. The Italian plan is seen as a long-range maneuver to seat both the Communist and Nationalist Chinese regimes In the United Nations. Altough the resolution avoids any mention of the two-China idea, it urges a solution that would take "into account the existing situation and the political realities of the area." The China debate lacked its usual steam this year, due mainly to the worsening dispute between the Soviet Union and Red China and a three-way split among the Western nations over how to break the stalemate, During seven days of discus- Please Turn to Page 6, Col. 7 Two Countians Injured In Pa.
