D. faced Jon E. Yount, the accused slayer and rapist of her 18-year- old daughter. The emotional outburst by the slender, attractive Mrs. Rimer came, shortly after she had ta- ken the witness stand as the Commonwealth's second wit- ness. As she described the concern she had experienced when her daughter, Pamela Sue. failed to return home immediately after school on the evening of April To Curwensville Rotary Report Given On Planning Progress CURWENSVILLE A thought-provoking presentation on the progress being made in preparation of a far- reaching planning program for the Curwensville area was given to members of the Rotary Club last night. Addressing the group was G. Clifford Terbush, a plan- ning consultant for Clifton M. Rodgers and Associates, the Harnsburg firm that has been employed by the Curwens- ville Planning Commission with the sanction of Borough nation.

The owner of the voice said the name was "Mac" not "Mae."

The matter was straightened 28, Mrs. Rimer looked in the di- rection of the defense table and seeing Yount, burst into hysteri- cal screams. A recess was immediately called and as state police start- ed to assist Mrs. Rimer from the courtroom, she fought them off crying, "I won't walk past him No, no." Yount, who sat quietly through- out the outburst, was led from the room and Mrs. Rimer was removed through another exit to an anteroom where she was quieted. She resumed the stand about a half hour later but was trem- bling and fighting off tears as she completed her testimony. Yount also appeared affected by what had happened in the courtroom.
