Jbhnson Appeals Anew For Hanoi Negotiations By FRANK CORMIER BANGKOK (AP) President Johnson appealed anew to Ha- noi today to negotiate a Viet Nam he praised Thailand's government for rec- ognizing the Communist threat. Addressing a sedate academic audience at Chulalongkorn Uni- versity in Bangkok, Johnson de- clared: "I say to the leaders of Hanoi let us lay aside our arms and sit down together at the table of reason." Later the President conferred for an hour with Premier Tha- nom Kittikachorn and top gov- ernment leaders around a big horseshoe-shaped table at or- nate Government House. It was here that Johnson told the Thai chiefs that their coun- try was wise to recognize early the need to meet the threat of Communist infiltration and sub- version. The chief executive also laud- ed the Thai government for pro- moting a social reform program in rural areas, saying the Thai leaders know that the battle against communism is not a purely military matter. Thanom had told Johnson about plans for a multimillion- dollar five-year program for economic and social develop- ment to encompass health, edu- cation, electric power, highway and other development pro- grams. Reporting on his govern- ment's struggle with Commu- nist guerrilla forces in the northeastern part of the coun- try, Thanom said Communist activity had decreased in recent weeks while defections from their ranks have increased. "But the Communists have not given he cautioned. In his response, Johnson said South Viet Nam is only the first target of the Communists and that they are looking at South- east Asia as a whole. It is im- portant to ''stop them where they he added. The United States has about servicemen in Thailand, mostly Air Force men who use Thai bases to bomb North Viet Nam. During his address at the uni- versity, Johnson appealed to North Vietnamese leaders to "renounce the work of and take up instead the task of the living." ''Enough of this sorrow. Let us bring the work of healing, teaching, building and providing for the children of men. This is the purpose for which we were really made. This is what our age asks us to the Presi- dent said.

If you live in any of 19 states or parts of 17 others, the clock must go back an hour at 2 a.m. Sunday. This is the last year in principle, at least for time- gerryniandering. Under the Un- iform Time Act of 1966 that President Johnson signed April 14, all states must go along with fast time next summer unless the state legislature forbids it. That, anyway, is the princi- ple. An Associated Press survey shows, however, that the confu- sion isn't over yet. Most states, including many divided into strange little time fiefs, haven't decided which way they will go next April when clocks get pushed ahead again. In a state like Indiana, where Indianapolis is on Eastern Standard; the northwest part of the state is on Central Stand- ard; and Vincennes, Terre Haute and Washington are on Central Daylight, legislators haven't made up their minds. In Kentucky, which also has a series of time splits, they proba- bly won't even get around to talking about the problem in time. The legislature isn't scheduled to reconvene until 1968. It wasn't clear either what would happen to an enclave like Butte. Mont. It likes daylight time, but the rest of the state Grand Jury To Consider Murder Case A charge of murder brought against Mrs. Be mice Woods D'Amico of Clearfield will be among the 10 indictable cases to be brought before the November grand jurors next week. 39-year-old Mrs. D'Amico is charged with fatally shooting her invalid brother, 49-year-old Howard Woods last Aug. 31, at the home they shared at 616 McBride Fatal Accident Probed Near Reynoldsville REYNOLDSVILLE State police from the DuBois Substa- tion are continuing their inves- tigation of an accident early this morning which claimed the life of a Reynoldsville R.

The accident occurred on Route 322 about three miles west of here at a. m. The police said Miller was apparently standing outside his car when he was hit. His car and one driven by Frederick J. Gelnette of Brookville, R. D. 1, were found stopped in their own lane of traffic. Persons involved in the ac- cident had left the scene when the police arrived. It could not be determined immediately if Gelnette's and Miller's car had been involved in an accident just before McNamee came along, or if they had stopped-on the Malaysia Prepares For LBJ Policemen Guard Capital After Demonstrations By BOB POOS KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia policemen guarded the streets of Ma- laysia's capital today to make it safe for President Johnson after three anti-American demonstra- tions, including the stoning of a hotel occupied by U.S. troops on leave. Police were posted at head- quarters of known leftist and pro-Communist groups while other police carrying rifles stood outside the U.S. Informa- tion Service office and' other possible targets of anti-Ameri- can mobs. A police official said, how- ever, one of his biggest prob- lems was expected to be keep- ing enthusiastic crowds from the presidential limousine as Johnson arrives p.m. EDT the 13th day of his Asian tour. The security operation was one of the largest since Ma- laysia was formed as a federa- tion from former British colo- nies three years ago. About 70 persons believed to have planned anti-Johnson dem- onstrations have been arrested and police' have 'confiscated stacks of anti-American pam- phlets and some anti-Johnson posters and banners. Police carrying walkie-talkies patrolled the streets. All police leaves were canceled.

(AP) The two major gubernatorial candidates. Democrat Milton Shapp and Republican Lt. Gov. Raymond P. Shafer, slugged it out Friday at two heated face-to-face confrontations in Allentown. The first came at the offices of the Allentown Call-Chronicle newspaper. The second was an hour later, at the Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton Airport terminal. Neither exchange produced any significant news since both stuck to previous stat- ed positions, charges and challenges. It did, however, put both men on display for local and travel- ing newsmen under obviously strained conditions.

SCOTT Editor, The Progress "There's never been a doubt in my mind that we will win in South Viet Maj. Gen. William R. Peers, USA, told a, Clearfield audience last night as he presented a broad and comprehensive picture of the situation in that Asian nation and the United States' involve- ment there. The General, special assistant to the Joint Chiefs of Staff for counterinsurgency and special activities, addressed a disap- pointingly small audience at a meeting in the Clearfield Area High School auditorium sponsor' ed by John Lewis Shade Post 8 of the American Legion. Fewer than 250 persons, including Le- gionnaires and members of area Reserve and National Guard units, turned out for the pro- gram. Those who did attend, how- ever, were given a detailed and interesting picture of South Viet Nam, including its terrain, its people, governmental structure, the Viet Cong or communists, and the military forces that are fighting for South Viet Nam's freedom. The General showed two films, one dealing with fighting by the ground forces and the other by the U. S. Air Force, and answered questions from the audience. Although admitting that some of the criticisms of Americans concerning the conflict in South Viet Nam are true "to a degree but not to the extent indicated." Gen. Peers said emphatically that "the situation, both mil- itarily and on the civilian side, is vastly improved over what it was a year ago." He pointed out that a similar situation of unrest, political change and disagreement be- tween factions, along with an economic problem "exists in other emerging and indeed historically has been true Please Turn to Page 10, Col. 2 Inside The Progress Classified Ads g, 9 Hints From Hcloise 9 Comics 11 News From Around World 2 Sports 6, 7 Obituaries 10 Hospital News 2, 3 Editorial, Columns 4 Today in History 4 School News 12 Church News 5 World's Week 3 House Moving fosy for Him Trying to move a house?
