Citizens Fail To Get School Tax Dropped PHILIPSBURG An attempt by a group of citizens to have the Philipsburg-Osceola Area School Board rescind a resolution levying a flat occupational assessment has failed. A group of approximately 250 citizens who signed petitions protesting the occu- pational assessment made an appearance at last night's monthly board meeting, but accomplished nothing, except to voice their disgust and anger with the tax structure. The meeting, which was originally scheduled to convene in the senior high libra- ry, had to be moved to the auditorium to accommodate the crowd. This necessitated moving a group of teachers attending the fall leadership conference of the _ _________________ Central District.

SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) The Viet Cong cut loose today with terrorists attacks from Saigon to the northern bor- der area. The U.S. command announced resumption of air attacks on the eastern end of the demilitarized zone. In five grenade, mine and shooting attacks, terrorists took at least eight lives and wounded 62 persons, including five U.S. servicemen. In one attack, mines derailed a train. In another, a grenade in a movie house killed or 51 Vietnamese. The U.S. air bombardment North Viet Nam was sharply reduced Monday for the third straight day by monsoon rain- storms. But U.S. headquarters reported nine bombing missions against Communist positions in the demilitarized zone, includ- ing one against a storage area on the eastern end of the zone. This was the first U.S. strike east of Highway One since the American command last Friday said it might end the bombing pause it had called in the east- ern sector two weeks before. U.S. B52 bombers staged two raids in South Viet Nam Mon- day night. The giant planes re- turned for a third day to "bomb suspected North. Vietnamese troop concentrations in the cen- tral highlands 35 miles south- west of Kontum City. Other eight-engine bombers bit at a The crowd on the whole was unorganized. Attempts by several citizens to have their questions answered were met with interruptions by other taxpayers in the audience. Solicitor David Baird and school directors willingly yield- ed the floor to taxpayers hav- ing questions but a few irate citizens seemed bent on hav- ing their own filibuster. At one point Mr. Baird said that "we are here to answer questions not to hear insults." Attempts by Mr. Baird and members of the board to the crowd. AT VIET NAM Another Clearfield coun- tian recently assigned to Viet Nam is Pfc. John Ed- ward Litringer Jr., above, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Litzinger of New Millport. A 1965 graduate of Clear- field Area High School, he enlisted in the Marine Corps in January of this year and was sent to Par- ris Island, S. C, for his basic training. Before be- ing sent to the Chu Lai base in South Viet Nam, he trained at Camp Pendleton, Calif., where he completed basic specialist training as an amphibian crewman.

The wage tax is not being collected properly and is ille- gal. Collection of the wage tax is not enforced. The occupation tax would not be needed if the wage tax was collected from everyone. Management of tax collec- tion is poor. However, no reply to these complaints by Mr. Baird or any school director seemed to satis- fy the crowd. After about two hours, presi- dent Edgar H. Wilson closed that portion of the "meeting deal- ing with taxes and the crowd left. In other matters, the school board received a request for financial assistance from the Osceola Mills Band Mothers Club which has undertaken the project of purchasing new uni- forms for the band. A spokes- man for the club pointed out that the club has over S900 in its checking account and ex- pects to conduct a fund raising project in the near future.

ARBOGAST WASHINGTON (AP) Pass- ing big and little hills right and left with a minimum of debate, Congress was sailing today be- fore a fair wind'for final ad- journment later this week. Monday it sent to President Johnson bills setting up a four- year, program to clean up public waters; and providing million for military construction project in the United States and over- seas. Major bills up for action today would authorize continuation of the war on poverty and finance programs to aid elementary, secondary and higher education and the poverty war. The pover- ty war authorization is on the Senate program, but at the cur- rent rate of speed it may get through the House before the end of the day. It is a compromise of sepa- rate antipoverty authorization measures passed earlier. There is no dispute over the spending ceiling, billion, the major rumble being over" how'many high-salaried employes can be put on the payroll of the Office' of Economic Opportunity and the programs it administers. The pending appropriation bill which the House has before it includes only billion for the antipoverty program. It also would provide billion for various forms of aid to educa- tion. It is the 15th and final ap- propriation bill of the session, and once it clears both branches the rush for adjournment could turn into a stampede. Only three of the other 14 money measures have not been sent to OFF ON TRIP President and Mrs. Johnson wave from the top of their plane's ramp yesterday before taking off from Dulles International Airport for a flight to Hawaii and the first stop on their Far East trip.

Preparations Made For Float Parade; List Entry Deadline President Heads For Conference Chief Executive Also Doubts New Strategy for War By FRANK CORMIER HONOLULU Johnson island hops farther across the Pacific today after insisting that the Manila confer- ence will produce neither new strategy for the war in Viet Nam nor a spectacular peace formula. Johnson, still five days from Manila on his Asian trip, was heading from Hawaii to New Zealand via Pago Pago, in American Samoa. The President and his wife got a rousing reception Monday ia Honolulu. Tens of many of them young people- jammed miles of downtown streets in a friendly colorful greeting. The state's delighted Democratic governor, John A. Burns, gave an unrestrained crowd estimate of Johnson responded in typical fashion, hopping out of his car at least a score of times to shake hands and, when staying inside, shouting through loud- speakers mounted inside the trunk, "Aloha, good to see you." Even while reveling in the welcome, however, the Presi- dent made clear his attention was on Manila and the Viet Nam war. In two formal speeches in Hawaii, he went out of his way to discourage high hopes for his Oct. 24-25 meeting in the Philip- pines with leaders of six other countries fighting alongside the United States in Viet Nam. At the East-West Center on the University of Hawaii cam- pus, with several score antiwar placards hoisted above the crowd, Johnson said: want roy fellow country- in a renewed effort to try to shed some light on the prob- lem which has brought repeated complaints from property alert a.m. owners on the street.
