By WILLIAM L. RYAN PARIS Unit- ed States and North Viet- nam, with the consent of their respective allies, an- nounced today a major breakthrough which will permit the long-stalled Vietnam peace talks to be- gin Saturday morning. Unmarked Table The American, North Viet- namese and South Vietnamese and National Liberation Front delegations will meet around an unmarked round table at the In- ternational Conference Center.; A U. S. spokesman refused to characterize the agreement in City Cracks Down On Trash Collections By CLAUDETTE DUHQCHER Householders and busi- nessmen who put out their trash in a condition hinder- ing "swift collection" will find themselves the recipi- ents of a red warning, tag and a copy of the municipal refuse collection ordinance. And starting Jan. 20, ac- cording to Public Works Director Travis L. Petty, rubbish collectors "will fol- low the desires of the Board of Public Works and collect only refuse that meets the requirements of the city rubbish ordinance Ordinance Specifies This ordinance, the newly- named director states, prohibits the use of containers "so small as to require an excessive num- ber of containers" per stop and further requires that cardboard cartons "be flattened and tied in bundles or packed in suitable containers." The ordinance applies to house- holders, merchants and manu- facturers who use the; municipal refuse collection service, Petty said. He also.said that refuse coK lection in the business district, especially Main Street, has been the subject of attention and im- provements are being sought through the Downtown Associa- tion' of the Greater Nashua Chamber of Commerce. The improvements cover the hour of pickups, the size of con- tainers and the disposal of car- tons. To eliminate unsightly rubbish barrels awaiting collection along Main Street during all of Wed-, nesday forenoon, Petty said, the Public Works Department is ask- ing merchants along the street to have .their trash at the curb by that day or to have it hauled to the city disposal area by private contractors. For several years, the depart- ment has made three Main Street collections on Wednesday, Petty said an early morning one, a second at mid-morning and a third just before 1 p.m. "Consequently, piles of trash, ruNbish barrels, cartons have competed with store windows for the shopper's eye during those he said. "At worst, such as last week, wind-blown w.aste paper dances around the ankles of shoppers and impedes their path into stores." Petty said the mid-morning and .noontime collections along Main Street will now be eliminated. Asks Members To prevent papers and trash from being scattered by the wind, the'Downtown Association asked its members in a recent letter to comply with the rubbish collec- Further Delate Is Expected On Nasjman's Abortion Plan 'CONCORD, N.H. Rep. Jean Wallin's highly.con- troversial bill aimed at; libera- lizing New Hampshire's rigid abortion law is expected to go into subcommittee shortly a move that may drag out debate over, the measure to its ulti- mate doom. The Nashua Democrat, spon- soring the proposal, led off tes- timony Wednesday at a hearing before the House Public Health Committee jn. the representa- tives' chamber. She called pres- ent state laws on the subject "probably the most untenable taken by any state in the un- ion." But the emotion-packed and .crowded hearing moved rapidly on is i long list of distinguished proponents and opponents to the measure, as well as young mothers and elderly ladies loosed their views on the com- mittee. Said one witness: "What we're talking here about is life or we wouldn't be here at all." Certain Cases Mrs. Wallin's bill would per- mit abortions in certain cases allowing what it terms "jus- tified medical termination." Specifically, the bill spells out "justified medical termination" as when the act would be per- mitted by a licensed physician, using accepted medical proce- .dures in a fully accredited Hos- pital, upon written certification by all members of a special hospital board.

The code, on'which Mrs. Wal- lin's bill is based, has been ap- proved by the American Medi- cal Society and-has been, passed into law in five states. "We have the experience of the states of California and Col- orado, where they report fewer hospital abortions, than esti- mated, refuting the charge that states with liberalized abortion laws become meccas for this said Mrs.; Wallin.. In California, last year, and in Colorado, ,more than women were expected to get abortions that wouldthave been illegal, until recent changes in abortion laws and jwell over half of these were approved on (psychiatric grounds- The New Hampshire Medical Society has endorsed .Mrs. Wal- lin's bill. Doctors Respond The group's, president; Dr. Jessie Gait Of Dover, spoke at the hearing explaining that of 800 members of the society, re- sponding to a poll, on the bill, more: than 88 per cent of tin doctors responded affirmative- ly. He did offer some amend- ments to the measure, how- ever. Strongly opposing the meas- on the other hand were several doctors and attor- neys. One doctor, a psychiatrist from Manchester, told commit- tee members "I have never seen a patient, where I felt that a so-called therapeutic abortion was Indicated for psychiatric rea- sons, i "I can recall many instances, however, where a patient was acutely disturbed emotionally, THE FOLLOWING STORES WILL BE OPEN THURSDAY FRIDAY'TIL 9 P.M.

Mrs. Sarah Gibson, a resident of the John M. Hunt Home, this morning was pre- sented with a decorated cake at a small party given by trustees, staff members and other resi- dents of the home. Mrs. Gibson, widow of Harry W. Gibson, was once very active in local church, civic and social groups. 'She is a former house- mother of the Y; W. C.

Ted .Wilkie, association mana- ger, commented that "delaying placement of refuse at the curb until after 5 p. m., on Tuesdays and preferably much will be an important factor In keep- ing Main Street neat. If these collection plans do not meet with success, said Mayor- Dennis J. Sullivan as chairman of the BPW, the elimination of refuse collection from commer- cial and industrial establishments may be considered. He noted there is no city de- partment legally responsible for the collection of trash nor does the city government consider it- self required collect refuse. As the collection service -costs the taxpayers rhore than .annually and, affects every resi; dent, Sullivan said, it' is a .serv- ice upon which considerable at- tention is being focused. "More, important to me, main-. tenance of streets: is the elimi- nation of unbundled or unpacked trash put out for collection by householders and business Petty said. Consumes Time "Much time is now being spent by collectors loading empty car- tons and small bags or boxes of trash one or two at a time when they are capable of handling bundles or containers weighing up to 60 pounds and measuring up to three feet by three feet by four feet.: "The time consumed can be better used to clear snow and ice from the streets in the congested parts of the he said. At their Jan. 8 meeting, the BPW, Petty said, cleared the way for a more economical ap- proach to refuse collection by changing the minimum size of waste receptacles from five gal- Ions to 15 gallons. The maximum size remains 30 gallons. Other guidelines listed by Petty include: a r g e cardboard cartons measuring a maximum of three feet by three feet.by four feet, packed with waste paper and light refuse and suitably closed will .continue to be collected. Such cartons, however, will not be emptied and returned to owner's property. barrels will be emp- tied and returned. refrigerators, oth- er large appliances or furnituri will be collected only when the street division is notified of their intended disposal before the own- er's normal collection day. Petty said 'the department hopes enforcement of; the existing refuse collection ordinance will permit the reassignment; of. at least one collection crew to street maintenance work.; The police has been asked by Sullivan to seeing that all non-collectable refuse js promptly removed from streets by those who placed it there. Those finding it inconvenient to comply with the city's collec- tion requirements, Petty said, may haul their trash to the sani- tary, landfill area.

(AP) Mrs. Doloris Bridges, 52, widow of Sen. Styles Bridges, R- N.H., ami a U.S. Senate can- didate for nomination twice in this decade, died of cancer ear- ly today at Concord Hospital. The Minnesota-born political- ly-oriented Mrs. Bridges, who had nearly 10 years of govern- ment service in Washington be- fore her marriage to Sen. Bridges in 1944, was a close fol- lower of her husband's political philosophy, consistently de- scribed herself as a "Styles Bridges Republican." Enters Politics Mrs. Bridges actively entered the political scene following the senator's death on Nov. 26, 1961. It was the expectation of friends and associates that Gov. Wesley Powell, who had been an aide of the senator'in Wash- ington, would appoint her to the seat. When he failed to do so, Mrs. Bridges entered the pri- mary contest in the fall of 1982 against then Rep. Perkins Bass of Peterborough. She lost to the former Con- gressman by so narrow mar- gin that she asked for a re- count. The final figure was for Bass and for Mrs. Bridges. Mrs. Bridges again entered the Republican primary, in 1966, to compete for the seat her late DOLORIS BRIDGES husband had held for 24 years. She faced a field of six candi- dates in this contest. The suc- cessful candidate was Gen: Har- rison R. Thyng of Bamstead, who in turn lost in November to Sen. Thomas Mclntyre, D-N.H., the present incumbent. Mrs. Bridges was born in Gib- bon, Minn., the daughter of Dr. Charles Casper and Clara Thail- wald. Her mother survives her. She was educated in the pub- lic schools of St. Paul, and was graduated from the Universty of Minnesota. She attended the Strayer Business College at MRS.

S.- Saigon side, which had been insistent all along on a marked table which would clearly show that the peace conference was two-sided. .Evidently the agreement was reached with the understanding that the two sides could view the conference In any way they and the Americans and South Vietnamese still stress their view .that'it will be two-sid- ed. The sudden and unexpected breakthrough makes it possible for peace conference machinery to be in motion two days before .the expiration of President Johnson's term of office. But for some time it is expect- ed the enlarged conferencs will deal with procedural matters before it finally gets down 'to talking about how to achieve' peace in Vietnam. Obviously, the two-side, four- side disagreement continues but has been shunted aside by com- mon consent. The North Vietnamese spokes- man characterized the coming meeting as four-sided. The Sai- gon spokesman stressed two sides. Four Delegations Nguyen Than Le, the North Vietnamese spokesman, said the conference would be made up of four delegations "to reflect the idea that they are equal." South Vietnam has stubbornly resisted' the idea that the Viet Cong's National Liberation Front should have a status of equality with the Saigon govern- ment. The first meeting, opening at a.m. a.m., EST Saturday will thus be at a round table with four members of each delegation present, a total of 16, plus secretaries as need- ed. The deputy heads of the dele- gations will be present, since there are still procedural mat- ters to be discussed. Thus, Am- bassador Cyrus R. Vance will represent the United States, Col. Ha Van Lau the North Viet- namese, Nguyen Phong the South Vietnamese and Mrs. Nguyen Thi Binh, the NLF. Vance and Lau reached the agreement after two last-minute meetings, one of an hour and a half Wednesday another o( a half hour this morning. The shape of the table and speaking arrangements had been at the core of the wrangle which had held up the enlarged talks ever since President John- son announced the end of the bombing of North Vietnam Oct. 31 and opened the way for a new phase of the conference. The North Vietnamese spokes- man, as if suggesting that the solution was a victory for his side, told newsmen Hanoi had proposed a round table as long ago as Dec. 12, and "the United States and the Saigon, adminis- tration must bear the entire re- sponsibility for the fact that it has taken to Jan. 18 for the conference to meet." South Vietnam's spokesman insisted that the accord showed his governments good will. There will be no flags or em- blems in the conference room. The first session, at least, will be held in private. The North Vietnamese said they wanted the meeting to be public but that the United States objected. The Americans said future meetings might be open to the press. The agreement appears to have compromised the two-side, four-side argument by leaving the table unmarked, but by ar- ranging at the same time a speaking order which suggested two sides. On the first day the Saigon-A- merican side will speak first, and at the next meeting, the Ha- noi-NLF side will speak first. For the Saturday meeting the allied side has designated Phong, Saigon's No. 2 man, as the speaker, followed by Vance. Ambassador W. Averell Har- riman, chief of the U.S. delega- tion, does not plan to remain in Paris, despite the agreement. The U.S. delegation spokes- man, William J. Jorden, said Harriman still plans to leave on schedule about l.p.m. Sunday. 2 Soviet Cosmonauts Transferred In Orbit MOSCOW (AP) Two Soviet cosmonauts transferred from one orbiting spaceship to an- other today, scoring a dramatic first for the Soviet space pro- gram. The two space ships, Soyuz 4 and Soyuz 5, had linked -up In or- bit shortly' cosmonauts Yevgeny Khrunov and Alexel Yellseyev made the transfer. Join Shatalov The official news.agency Tass said they moved from Soyuz 5 to join 'Vladimir Shatalov in Soyui 4, leaving Boris Volyhov along In -Soyuz 5. Radio Moscow said the two cosmonauts were outside the linked-up ships "about an .hour." Khrunov and Ye11 s 'e y e y donned space suits just before the maneuver. Radio Moscow said the suits were equipped with a new'life-support system. "Thus -Shatalov's two-day soli- tude in orbit was Tass said. Khrunov exited from Soyuz 5 and climbed aboard the com- panion ship above the territory of South America. Yeliseyev made his move over the. Soviet Union. "The condition of all cosmo- nauts is Radio Moscow laid. Moscow television showed a. delayed videotape of the two cosmonauts inside the orbiting ship preparing to make tht transfer. Volynov helped Yeli- seyev and Khrunov get into their suits. "Our condition is Volynov reported. "Don't be in a a voice from ground control said. The picture was of good quali- ty and the inside of the Soyuz 5 cabin appeared to be quite roomy. Floats In Space One of the cosmonauts could then be seen floating in space, his umbilical cable leading in- side the ship. VLADIMIR SHATALOV At one point a movie camera floated out the door into Yell- syev's arms. Tass said the maneuver proved the feasibility of ex- changing crews on long-term operations or the rescue o! spacemen in emergency situa- tions. In a; "jubilantly tense voice a Moscow Radio announcer said the linkup, "guarantees the ful- filment, of a great complex of experiments." Soviet space officials, follow- ing their usual custom of not an- nouncing space operations until they are accomplished, have not said what the next move for the orbiting cosmonauts may be. Since the start of the Soyuz 4 flight Tuesday there have been reports in Moscow that a trans- fer of crews from one spaceship to the other will be attempted, It was not clear whether such a maneuver would involve a space walk or whether there was.some means of joining the two ships Internally. There also was no confirma- tion in Moscow that the Soviet Union might have launched a third spaceship this morning.

Efforts Fall The United Arab Republic and five other Arab states broke diplomatic relations with Wash- ington during the Arab-Israeli war in June, 1967, and there have been several unsuccessful efforts since then to reopen them. Most Arab leaders expect the atmosphere to be more pro- pitious with the incoming Re- publican administration.

Secretary of State Dean Rusk personally handed the American note to Yuri N.. Chernyakov, charge d'affaires of the Soviet Embassy, at 5'p.m. The American note sought clarification of Soviet proposals made to Rusk Dec. 3. The So- viet note called for phased with- drawal of Israeli forces from Arab territories seized in June, 1967; a statement: from Arab nations renouncing their state of belligerency with Israel; rec- ognition of the sovereignty of ail states in the region; assur- ance of the right of free mari- time passage in international waterways, and a just settle- ment of the Arab refugee prob- lem.

Scranton, who visited the Mid- dle East as Nixon's personal envoy, is reported to have rec- ommended resumption of dip- lomatic relations with Cairo to the President-elect and a "niort even-handed" policy toward the Middle East.
