Command announced today that 196 Americans were killed in action in Vietnam last week, the highest weekly, toll since mid-December. Loss 2 Planes Headquarters also reported the loss of two more U.S. Air Force fighter-bombers over South Vietnam, raising to five the number of American war- planes shot down over the South in the past three days. Five of the six crewmen aboard the five planes were rescued. The other was killed. Spokesmen said the five loss- es were the heaviest three-day toll over South Vietnam in more than seven losses raised to 335 the number of U.S. warplanes shot down in combat over South Vietnam during the war. While American casualties moved up last week, so did those of the South Vietnamese military and the enemy. Government headquarters an- nounced that 292 South Viet- namese troops were killed in ac- tion during the seven-day period ending at midnight Saturday, their highest death toll In more than three months. Enemy casualties also hit their highest .mark since last November. Allied spokesmen reported enemy troops were killed in fighting last week. The U.S. Command said that while there have been no major actions since the first of the year, there have been hundreds of small fights that caused mounting casualties. 'The lull in major ground fight- Ing .persisted, today. U.S. and South Vietnamese headquarters reported short fights in scattered parts of the country arid .said their forces killed 97 enemy soldiers in the past 24 hours. Find Stockpiles Meanwhile, thousands of al- lied troops hunting down enemy supply bases uncovered at least half a dozen more big stockpiles of munitions and food. They seized more than 10 tons of mu- nitions and tons of food. The sweeping troops seized rounds of machine-gun and small arms ammunition, mortar, rocket' and recoil- less rifle shells, and tons of food. The latest finds raised to about 700 tons the total of ene- my supplies allied troops have seized in the. past 26 days. This includes more than one million rounds of, .machine gun and' small arms ammunition. .Most of the munitions.- have been, seized.between Saigon and the Cambodian border, and ALLIES Page'l By Adolphe V. Bernotas CONCORD, N. H. (AP) The House Appropriations Committee, chopping 000 from the proposed price, has amended and approved the bill creating Gov. Walter Peterson's task force of citizens to study effectiveness of state government. Favors Amendment Peterson's reaction to the changes in the measure he.con- siders his top-priority legislative item Wednesday was that the amended version is a better one because it has been clarified. The governor said he's "cau- tiously optimistic" the legisla- ture will approve the plan, which now has a price tag. It is scheduled for House ac- tion next Wednesday. Gordon Tiffany, the man picked by Peterson to coordi- nate, the work of the task force, said today about 150 "promin- nationally known persons who have settled in New Hamp- shire, particularly investment bankers" have been interviewed for the group. Tiffany said the size and makeup of the'task force will be determined most likely by an executive committee. The committee also changed the date on which the task force is to report its recommenda- tions setting the deadline, or- iginally Sept. 15, at Nov. 1. Peterson plans to' call the lawmakers into special session to consider the task force's recommendations. The revised measure is more specific in spelling out where Peterson can seek assistance for .the task force such as from the pool'of'the state's clas- sified 'and unclassified employ- es. The changed version also adds a lection which permits the governor to apply for any fed- eral or private gifts, or grants for the massive project. Repeats Opposition .The governor said he has not considered this, a politically par- tisan adding that he regrets "to see. partisanship' dis- played." The Democratic lead- ership repeated its opposition to the measure shortly before the committee approved it. The Democratic position is that the needs of the state are known at the present, that there. are enough studies available outlining New Hampshire's shortcomings and that the time for legislative action is now. Rep. Joseph Eaton, R- Hillsooro, -chairman of the com- mittee, said, his group deliber- ated for nearly three, hours be- fore reaching its decision. Eep. Arthur Drake, R- Lancaster, head of the subcom- mittee which had an executive session on the issue, disclosed that the governor made a per- sonal appearance before 'his group to testify on behalf of the plan. The governor also told news- men he feels confident he can raise the that was. chopped "maybe even more" from.private sources "if not in cash, then in meaning in voluntary services. Peterson, who has said he ex- pected a compromise on the price, said the new section., giv- ing him the option to seek other financial help and the specifica- tion that state employes could be used on the project, were the parts which particularly strength- ened the bill. However, Peterson indicated that if the money cannot be raised, the will be suf- ficient "with some narrowing and sharpening of the focus" of the task force's objectives. Purpose Stated Specifically, in the'language of the bill the purpose of the task force is outlined as: thrift and cost in the operations of government. Assure the best use of cur- rent revenue and manpower. for the adoption of 'Jong-range plan- ning and department budget- ing. Anticipate the presently foreseeable needs by its citizens in keeping aberast with techno- logical and cultural advance- ments. Eliminate or reduce any governmental services and ac- tivities, the costs of which can- not be justified. Achieve efficient and effec- tive systems of education, wel- fare, health services, safety services, conservation1 of natur- al and human resources, com- munication and transportation. Assist, wherever possible, so that New Hampshire's econo- my operates at highest attain- able peaks. Encourage inward migra- tion of industry and skilled la- bor while creating new and at- tractive opportunities for our existing work force. Apply modern business techniques to the complex en-, terprise of state government. Bridge Repairs, Violations i To Be Discussed Tuesday By CLAUDETTE DUKOCHER Discussion on payment of re- pair costs for the Tayior's Falls Bridge will resume Tuesday night at 7 in City Hall at a meeting of the Hudson selectmen, the Board of Public Works and state-high- way officials. The selectmen and the BPW agreed at a meeting in late De- cember to approach the stale for aid in defraying the costs when an impasse was reached over a 50-50 cost split. Dispute Remains Hudson objects to sharing the costs on an even split and Mayor Dennis J. Sullivan and -the .PW Commissioners maintain the ar- rangement was .made through a gentlemen's agreement before the start of repairs and should be honored. The costs amounted to about Also to be discussed at the meet- Ing are the lifting of the 15-ton load limit for the bridge and planning procedures for a new spin to replace the disabled struc- ture. In the meantime, complaints are being received about trucks, including concrete delivery trucks, Former Area Teacher Stars on TV Water Rate Ruling Seen Next Month A.decision on the nearly 20 per" cent water rate increase request- ed by the Pennichuck Water Works is expected within two weeks. Charles P. Amyot, .secretary of the Public Utilities Commission, said a report containing. recom- mendations is in the draft stage and should be coining up for final review in about '10 days. Delays Ruling A flu outbreak among the com- mission's staff, he said, has ham- pered a speedy decision on the rate case. The PWW applied for the rate increase in Ufay and the final public hearing on it was held Nov. 22: The rate boost was opposed by the city primarily because it would'hike annual water protec- tion fees by J38.451. In another development, Donald C. Calderwood, PWW president, said today negotiations are con- tinuing with Anheuser-Busch Inc., for the extension of a water line to the Merrimack brewery. The water line, Calderwood said, would be primarily for back-up and fire protection uses. The Nashua Corporation, he added, is also interested in the .poposed water line for the plant it will build in Merrimack near the brewery. No contract has been reached with, the brewery, Calderwood said, adding that the PWW would have to obtain a franchise from the PUC to do business in Merri- mack.

Her father, Charles H. Parker still lives in the family home on the Boston Post Road there. Parker, who celebrated'his 80th birthday last Saturday, says that he is very proud of his daughter and, in typical Yankee fashion, says that it is "kind of to watch her on nationwide television every week. Nashua High Graduate Maggi attended elementary schools in South Merrimack, and graduated from Nashua High School in 1944: Park- er remembers that Maggi was very active in the school band where she played the trumpet. He says that she performed in Grange shows along with Thomas and Alice Dutton of Merrimack, arid always loved the theater. Maggi majored in education at Keene State College and then went on to Boston University to get her master's degree. She taught for awhile in Merri- mack, then Hudson, where she performed with the Hudson Play- ers, and taught in Massachusetts.

While she was in Japan, she wrote a letter to one of her friends that was published in the Telegraph's "Around-.the Town." In it she says: 'Tve been keeping out of mischief by taking iristruc-' tion in Japanese' conversation, Judo and flower arranging. When I get back home, I can chew put people'in Japanese, throw them over my head before they realize what has happened to them, then arrange a nice bouquet .to take to them while they recuperate in the hospital." She wound up the letter with. the thought: "In retrospection I can .only say it takes some 'stuff' to be a good a woman. I would be a terrible failure, for I always cross my legs at the knee when sitting; I wear earrings, I laugh out loud, stare at people, am lazy, hate trains, don't like to take baths with other people, won't give up smoking and refuse to trudge along behind any man with one baby tied on my back, dragging two more along in each hand while papa- can parades ahead picking his teeth and smiling at all of the pretty young things passing by..." Credits Listed On her way back to Japan, she stopped in Hawaii, loved it, and decided to stay there. Her acting credits, notwithstanding "Hawaii Kve-0" are numerous. She appeared in the movies, "Paradise Hawaiian TONIGHT IN THE TELEGRAPH Abby 181 Obituaries I Baker 5: Pearson 4 Classifieds IReston 4 19, 20.'211 Sports 18, 17 Comics 18 Suburban Crossword Editorial Financial Hal Boyle and "I Sail to Tahiti with an All-Girl Crew." She has also appeared in television Dream of and in several com- mercials. She writes to her father nearly, every week, and has made ten- tative plans to come home .this summer for a short vacation. Her father mentioned her love for summer in New Hampshire, native sweet corn and strawber- ries. Parker hopes she will come for a visit, but acknowledges that she is tremendously busy-, not only with acting, but in other areas too. Maggi is co-founder and partner in the. Parker-Ames Center in Honolulu, a. clinic of- fering psychological and educa- tional services to emotionally dis- turbed children and. young adults. Maggi lives alone in an apart- ment .in Waikiki, and, according to a recent article in TV "she lives'a quiet life." The ar- also stated that when she was a young girl here, whenever she 'came in late, her mother would take "a branch off a lilac bush and hit her with it." Her father admits that Maggi's up- bringing, like that of-her brother and sister, was strict, but adds that the fine about the lilac bush is a "wee bit exaggerated." Her brother is a superintendent of teachers in Norwalk, Conn., and her sister, Who was once a teacher, is now a housewife in Claremont. Keeps On The Go Parker himself keeps the FORMER TEACHER Page 1 rolling across the bridge in de- fiance of the 15-ton limit. A 24-hour police guard of the bridge was dropped more than two weeks ago with the. approval of Mayor Dennis J. Sullivan. Norman E. Bissonnette, presi- dent of Redimix Concrete-Service Inc., confirmed reports his .firm's delivery vehicles have been cross- ing the bridge. "But people should check their facts Jie said, adding that the concrete-- trucks using the bridge were only partially full and under the t5-ton limit. He said the trucks when filled to capacity weigh about 20 tons apiece and are routed through Tyngsboro, Mass. Sand and gravel trucks, Bisson- nette added, cross the bridge empty and return to Nashua via Tyngsboro. He said the Hudson Sand and Gravel Company, which is operat- ed by Selectman Robert P. Le- vesque, sometimes sends loaded sand or gravel truck across the bridge. But, .-he, said, this truck when loaded weighs under the 15-ton limit. Cites Reasons Sullivan said he approved drop- ping the bridge police watch for- several reasons. 'At the time, he'said, the police department was hard pressed to man the watch because of a flu outbreak in its ranks. The Hudson police, he said, had dropped its watch of' the: bridge and he added that, even with a 24-hour guard on the Nashua side complaints were heard about trucks rolling across the span in violation of the tonnage limit. Sullivan said the police en-, countered an enforcement prob- lem because it was difficult to judge the weight of trucks with- out actually escorting.! suspected offender'.to a weighing station. Nashua policemen maintaining watch over the bridge were doinf the job during their off-duty hours on a time and a half basis. Polak Reports Hudson Police Chief Andrew J. Polak said he has received com- plaints about over-the-lunit trucks rolling across the bridge, includ- ing sand and gravel trucks. His department has not been able to track these vehicles down, he said, because of its limited manpower. "We only have, one Polak said, "and it can't alwaye be at the bridge. Witching the bridge should really be Nashua's At then: December meeting with the BPW, Selectmen Frank A. Nutting; Jr. and Levesque said trucks traveling across the unguarM bridge at night in violation of the tonnage limit; The-trucks, they said, were ip- proaching the bridge from the Nashua side via fast Hollls.Street At the time, the arguing that the limit should be gradually increased and cited flie as evidence the 58-year-old bridge could' sustain a heavier load.

(AP) A Navy court told Cmdr. Lloyd M. Bueher Wednesday that he was suspected of reg- ulations in surrendering the in- telligence ship Pueblo to the North Koreans. He was in- formed by the five admirals constituting a court of inquiry that anything he said from now on might be used against him in court-martial proceedings. But Bueher, obviously shaken by the statement, said he would continue to give "full details" ol the Pueblo's capture and of the 11 months he and his 81 surviv- ing crewmen spent in captivity. Bueher resumes his testimony today. A court of inquiry is not a mil- itary trial, like a court-martial, but only an investigative hear- ing. Nevertheless Bucher's sta- tus suddenly hid changed from "a party to the court" to "sus- Shortly after the crew's release just before Christmas at least two Navy admirals had called Bueher and hit men heroes.
