The O - C diagrams of two Algol-type eclipsing binaries V342 Aql and TW Lac have been analyzed with the least-squares method by using all available minima times. The period changes in their O - C diagrams have been discussed with respect to the Light-Time Effect (LITE) that originates from gravitational influence of a third body. New LITE elements, orbital periods and possible minimum masses of third bodies are given.
