LEUBSDORF WASHINGTON The House Committee on Un-Ameri- can Activities apparently has abandoned, at least for this ses- sion, bill stemming from its six-month investigation into al- leged Ku Klux Klan terrorism. Disagreement among commit- tee members over the broad- ranging measure's constitution- ality is the chief reason for the committee's failure to act so far on the bill. Some members also contend that hearings on the legislation, during which most witnesses assailed it, were too brief and inconclusive to support a favor- able committee report. While there is some talk among staff of com- mittee action, members consid- er it extremely unlikely. The legislation, titled the "Or- ganizational Conspiracies Act of Turn to Page 2, CoL.4, in the upstream portion. The islands are considered to be a hazard to boating and once they are removed that section of the lake will provide unob- structed navigation. A gradual draw-down of the lake is scheduled to start next week in order to permit ac- cess by earth-moving equipment to the island area. The engineers, gave approval to a proposed increase in the size of the lake after being urged to consider the expansion by local and state agencies. A seven-foot increase in the water level would provide a lake of more than 700 acres with 19 miles of shoreline. The higher level would be main- tained, however, only from spring through early fall so as not to lessen the flood control effect of the facility. The State Department of For- ests and Waters, meanwhile, is continuing with plans for the development of facilities 'for boating, swimming, picnicking and camping. v THEY'RE COUNTY CHAMPS The Clearfield County Plowing Contest was conduct- ed at the Harmony Grange Fair yesterday and when it was over were the winners.

Secretary of State Dean Rusk, meanwhile, was to have a chance to follow up the pro- posals privately at a dinner tonight given by Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko. The talks between the two start- ed Thursday when Gromyko was Rusk's dinner guest. Neither side would say what they meant to discuss, but their subjects seemed likely to in- clude Viet Nam, European secu- rity, disarmament, prevention of the spread of nuclear weap- ons and a treaty for peaceful exploration of outer space. The meeting was to be the first since Gromyko denounced Goldberg's proposals in the as- sembly's general debate Friday. Both Gromyko and Hanoi de- manded Friday that the United States stop bombing North Viet Nam and withdraw its troops from South Viet Nam. Hanoi also suggested that the United States discuss a solution direct- ly with the South Vietnamese rebels' National Liberation Front.

B52 bombers raided North Viet Nam today for the third time in four days. The huge bombers, flying above the weather, struck again in the southern end of North Viet Nam just a few miles north of the demilitarized zone. The bombers hit Communist infiltration routes, truck parks and storage depots. Smaller U.S. tactical bombers gave the once-demilitarized zone between North and South Viet Nam a going over, pound- ing seven North Vietnamese storage areas in the zone. In South Viet Nam, ground fighting was small and scat- tered. The crack South Korean Tiger Division ended a six-month-old operation and promptly launched a new one. Simultane- ously, Australian troops termi- nated their current operation and the U.S. command an- nounced that the recently ar- rived 196th Light Infantry was in action for the first time. The U.S. command said the total number of U.S. planes lost over North Viet Nam, as of Fri- day, was 385. A spokesman said 123 U.S. planes have been lost in action over South Viet Nam. The B52 raids today marked the fifth time in the war that the eight-engine intercontinental bombers have raided North Viet Nam. Two of these raids were made last April against the Mu Gia Pass and the other three were made within the last four days. Inside the demilitarized zone once-neutral buffer area that is now a battleground U.S. Air Force Skyraiders and Canberra bombers struck at seven target areas Friday. Pi- lots reported destroying six structures, and setting fire to a fuel depot and seven piles of military supplies. Less than a mile south of the demilitarized zone.
