LBJ Gains New Zealand Pledge By FRANK CORMIER CANBERRA, Australia (AP) President Johnson arrived in Australia today to an enthusi- astic welcome, and declared he was on a mission of hope for peace. But he said the task ahead is not easy because "the securing peace is not done by miracles." Johnson flew in from New Zealand, where he obtained a pledge of allied unity in Viet Nam and called on North Viet Nam's leaders to join in a "nob- ler war" on hunger, ignorance and disease in Southeast Asia. Johnson was greeted by all the pomp and circumstance Australia could muster, includ- ing a 21-gun salute and an honor guard. He was welcomed by a small crowd. But the crowds grew into the thousands as his motorcade drove into Canberra. The weather cooperated fully for the coming of the first American President to visit Australia. A light rain stopped 10 minutes before the presiden- tial jet landed in Canberra, the capital, and brilliant late after- noon sunshine slanted through the dark gray thunderheads as Johnson, followed by his wife, stepped from the plane to be greeted by Prime Minister Har- old Holt. Harking back once again to his World War II visit to Austra- lia and New Zealand as a naval .officer, Johnson told the wel- coming crowd at the airport he had returned en route to the Manila conference on Viet Nam on a mission of hope. "I cannot say that miracles will occur at he de- clared. "The hard work of se- curing the peace is not done by miracles. "1 cannot say that the hunger and injustice of the past will be ended by a declaration of the seven nations (including Austra- lia) who will meet next week. "Years must pass, years of dedication and patient effort, before men fan make the just society of which they dream Johnson declared that there is a new vision, "a new in this vast area of-the world. "It is a vision of emancipation from foreign domination, from tyranny, from the despair that rides with hunger and dis- ease and ignorance. It is the only ision worthy of man's des- tiny. We shall try to capture a part of that vision at Manila." A crowd of about 400 that had braved the chilly weather and earlier rain cheered loudly and clapped during the President's Please Turn to Page 10, Col. 2 ELECTED TO SECOND TERM Officers of the Clearfield County Agricultural Ex- tension Association re-elected at the association's 50th annual meeting last night' are, left to right: Russell Orner, Rockton, president; Mrs. Frank Sankey, Clearfield R.

Ky Pushes Crisis Aside; Viet Troops Suffer Loss Scranton Slated To Sign Bill On Menial Health PHILADELPHIA (AP) The oldest hospital in the United States, Pennsylvania Hospital, was the setting for today's scheduled signing by Gov Seranton of the mental health and retardation bill. The hospital, founded in 1751, was chosen for ,the occasion because it is the oldest and be- cause it will house the first Community Mental Health Agency to be established under the bill. The bill, passed finally by the legisture Oct. 5, goes into effect Jan 1. It will set up a network of mental health centers at the county level to provide treatment for less severe cases close to their homes. The State Welfare Depart- ment, which will determine the statewide policy, estimates that within 10 years between 70 and 80 Community centers will be located within one hour's travel- ing time for every person in the state. For the immediate future, however, existing buildings, such as hospital wings, will be util- ized. The- state mental hospitals will provide treatment for the more severe cases. The bill also appropriates SS million to the Welfare Depart- ment for the current fiscal year which began July 1. The slate will pay 90 per cent of the cost of the program and the counties the remaining 10 per cent. Federal funds also will be available.
