Accuses Enemy claim to represent the Viet- Saigon's Ambassador Pham namese of both North and Dang Lam lashed, out at the opening of the second session of the four-party talks. In a word statement. He told the delegates from North Vietnam and the Viet Cong's National Liberation Front they had deliy- 'ered "negative" statements at the opening of the conference last Saturday. "Your Lam "contained nothing empty and unfounded calumnies against the constitutional, legal, authentic government of the Re- public of Vietnam. They con- tained nothing but outdated propaganda. "I consider it necessary to re- mind you that we have come here not for disputes or propa- ganda, but in response to the le- gitimate aspirations for peace of the South Vietnamese people. If you persist in this negative attitude, no progress can be achieved on the road to peace." He attacked the other side's Dulles Is Dead WASHINGTON (AP) Allen W. Dulles, former chief of the Central Intelligence Agency, died late Wednesday in George. town University Hospital. He was 75. The former U.S. master spy beaded the intelligence agency from 1953 until his retirement in 1961. He first was appointed chief by former President Dwight D. Eisenhower and then asked to continue in his a-year job'by the late President John F. Kennedy. Dulles was a member of the Warren Commission that inves- tigated Kennedy's assassination and concluded the President was killed by. one man. Lee Harvey Oswald.

Lam himself put no new pro- posals before the conference al- though he once again supported American proposals, made last Saturday. Henry Cabot Lodge, chief of the U.S. delegation, said he would press again for discussion of the demilitarized zone, mu- tual troop withdrawals and pris- oner exchanges, items in which the North, Vietnamese and the Viet Cong showed no visible in- terest at the first session of the enlarged 'conference last Satur- day. The atmosphere was chilly as the delegates from the United States, South Vietnam, North Vietnam and the Viet Cong's National Liberation Front ar- rived at the International Conference Center. Set Positions Neither side' appeared ready yet-to. depart from set positions or to engage in a genuine dia- logue. Conference sources said the two sides were likely to reaffirm the diametrically op- posed stands which marked their meeting Jan. 25. South Vietnamese Ambassa- dor Pham Dang Lam was the first speaker under the agreed rotation system. He was to be followed by Lodge. They were expected to continue .plugging for a gradual 'military de-esca-1 lalion, beginning with the re-es- tablishment of the demilitarized zone between North and South Vietnam. Spokesmen for the other side" ..said Xuan Thuy of North Viet- nam and Tran Buu Kiem of the NLF would tell the conference why this approach is unaccepta- ble to them. Nixon Plans Tour In Western Europe By PETER GROSE Nsw York Times Niwi Strvici WASHINGTON President Nixon is.pursuing plans to tour Western European capitals dur- ing his first months in office, White House spokesman, Herb- ert G. Klein, said last night. A summit meeting with Soviet leaders, which had been tenta- tively scheduled right after the Republican National 'Conven- tion, would not be sought until after the new President had met with leaders of the Western alliance, Klein said. The White House also an- nounced the appointment Of, Gerard C Smith as director of the Arms Control and Disarma- ment Agency.' the ambassador to Czechoslovakia, Jacob D. Beam, was summoned home from Prague and is expected to be named as ambassador to the Soviet Union. Advise President The President's foreign policy advisers have recommen d e d that a personal tour could go a long way toward redress ing what some. European govern- ments have considered an im- balance in United States foreign policy, a dominant emphasis on the problems of Vietnam and Asia at the expense of more .traditional ties with Europe. In Washington, and in their own capitals, European diplo- -mats frequently complained a- bout the difficulty of getting the attention of top pol icy- makers in the Johnson adminis- tration. Diplomats have long sug- gested that Nixon could score important diplomatic points by making his first presidential vis- it .to Paris! French president, Charles De Gaulle, was report- edly offended when President Kennedy met Soviet Premier Ni- kita S. Khruschev in Vienna before stopping in Paris. May seemed to be the most likely time on the presidential calendar for'a foreign tour. FREE CHECKING for Junior Gr Senior Citizens NASHUA TRUST COMPANY MEMBES P. D. I. 0.

(AP) Pleased with House ap- proval of his citizens task force bill-by almost two to one, Gov. Walter Peterson is cautiously confident the Senate will also give its blessing to the plan to economize state government. Rejects Move Passage by voice vote came shortly after the Republican- dominated lower chamber re- jected a move by Democratic Minority Leader Robert Raiche of Manchester to kill the bill by a roll call of 246-127. Twenty-six Democrats and 21 Republicans crossed party lines in the vote. The House Appropriations Committee had reduced the price tag by leaving it at In passing the task force measure Wednesday, the House went along with the revisions made by its Appropriations Committee. Among the changes was a new deadline for the task force to report its recommendations: Nov. 1. The original plan was for a report by Sept. 15. The revised measure is more specific in detailing where Pet- erson can seek help for the task Listed As Priority The- task force plan, which' Peterson considers his top- priority legislative measure, calls for a study of the effec- tiveness of state governmental operations. Majority Leader Harlan Lo- gan, R-Plainfield, backing the plan, told House members that no one is asking them to believe that the task force will accom- plish miracles. "What is he said, "is that it will help to establish guidelines for improving the ef- ficiency of our present state agencies, and for controlling the .increase in the cost of their services, and that it will also provide a blueprint for the state's future growth which will be based on sound, hard-headed economic principles and not the dreams of Utopian planners." Appropriations Committee Chairman Joseph Eaton, R- Hillsboro, called the bill a good investment. As for talk that the 'task force might lead to a broad-based tax, Eaton ob- served: "Should there be attempts to play tricks, we'd have time to take action at-a special session which would never be forgot- ten." The governor told newsmen shortly after the bill was ap- proved that among the prime goals of the task force will be studies on the rising cost of TASK FORCE BILL Page 1 Police Press Hunt For Missing Girl, 11 US. Defection in Race to North Pole? By WALTER SULLIVAN New York Timoi News Servioi NEW note seeming- ly indicative of defection in an American expedition during the race for the North Pole at the start of this century has been found by Russian explorers on Rudolf Island, northernmost point in Soviet territory. Adding to the mystery, ac- .cording to the Soviet account, has been the excavation, from ice covering the island, of wo- men's shoes, top hats, tail coats and false shirt fronts. In the cabin of the American leader, the Russians say, was "an infernal, machine, the wire of which extended to the dyna- mic charge in the food storage." Did this mean, the Russians ask, that the expedition failed because of "animosity" among its The note that was found, m a state of partial decay, would seem to indicate such dissen- sion. According to the Soviet account, it said: "We the opposition, are leav- ing the camp on 2, 1904, having 18 ponies and an Indian boat." _ It was signed, the report said, by "Tess, Veddy and Unked By Phone Also excavated at the site were "crystal a.nd porcelain dishes'covered with well as a small barrel of rum.

Sundayf 3 P.M. to Midnite report said, were linked by tele- phone. The base was that used'by the Ziegler-Fiala expedition of 1903- 1906. From it, three abortive ef- forts to reach the North Pole -were made. The finding was reported re- cently by Novosti, the Soviet feature agency. The report was made on the basis of a finding by a Soviet wintering party. In an effort to elucidate the account? a search has been made by this writer of the rec- ords of the American expedition and of an Italian party previ- ously based at the same site. The account written by the leader of the American venture, Anthony Fiala, a Brooklyn pho- tographer, made no mention of telephones or "infernal de- vices." 'However, he said, the camp wired for electric lights, powered by a mile-long wire from the expedition ship, which eventually was crushed by ice. Fiala's expedition was a ma- jor enterprise, with 39 men, 218 dogs and 30 long-haired Siberian ponies.-it was financed by Wil- liam Ziegler, a millionaire who founded'the Royali Baking Pow- der Company and made another fortune in Brooklyn real estate. Fiala had taken part in- an earlier expedition, also financed by Ziegler, that failed to achieve the pole. In March, 1904, from his base on Rudolf Island, Fiala made two abortive attempts to start for the pole. In both cases, he was turned back by bad con- ditions and a variety of mis- haps. He decided to remain a sec- ond winter and try orice more in 1905. However, according to his account, he allowed all who wished to go home to retreat south to an agreed upon ren- dezvous with a rescue ship. After the homeward bound party had left, two other men. "made no secret of the fact that they had grown discouraged with the outlook." They took off after the retreating group. However, the ship, Terra No- va, assigned to rescue them, was unable to breach the ice and' the entire expedition had to remain another winter. The note by'the Rus- sians dates from the time when most of Fiala's men, temporar- ily .under 'his leadership, had marched south to await rescue. Names Listed While the names given in the Soviet account are garbled, it is clear that the note was signed by: Peter L. Tessem, the Nor- wegian ship's carpenter; Char les E, Rilliet of St. Louis, Mo., quartermaster in charge of equipment, and .one of the two Vedoes on the expedition. Both were from Boston and probably were brothers. The episode that gave rise to the note is not in Fiala's account. He was absent from the camp at the time. When he returned, the. three men had apparently ended their defection. From Fiala's account he seems to have remained un good terms with Rilliet and the two Vedoes, but he virtually ignores Tessem. The Soviet report of :fihery is puzzling since photographs of the expedition at Christmas din- ners show no elaborate clothing. It is possible that the Rus- sians, who now maintain a sta- tion on Rudolf Island, dug up material left by Luigi Amadeo, duke of the Abr-uzzi, several years earlier. The duke, a-mountaineer, ex- plorer and a dashing national hero of Italy, made his camp .at the same site in 1899. His men marched across the pack ice to within 300 miles of the pole. 1 The duke, in his account, told TONIGHT IN -THE TELEGRAPH how he and his companions celebrated the birthday of Queen Margherita of Italy by opening her gifts. They had been, delivered to the expedition when the ship called at Archangel. The unopened gifts of the queen and others had been salvaged when the expedition ship was lost. It is at least possible that the expedition's royal sponsors thought top hats and tails would enliven evenings at a polar camp. The shoes may have been a memento of a more intimate kind. ALLENSTOWN, N.H. (AP) Debra Lee Horn's mother made a broadcast appeal today as a statewide search continued in an effort to locate the 11-year- old girl who is missing and feared abducted from her At lenstown home. Slate Safety Commissioner Robert Rhodes said he has about 25 troopers working nn the case. A spokesman said the FBI has not entered the case but is watching developments.
