Traditionally considered the advent to spring, the month was called "March" in honor of Mars, the Roman god of war, to signify that the campaigns interrupted by the winter could be resumed. Birthstone of those born in March is the aquamarine. Sign of the zodiac is Pisces, the fish, and the ruling planet is Neptune. But don't let the March 'lamb' fool you.

Eisen- hower remained "very weak" from the pneumonia that ha; complicated his recovery from surgery and a series of heart at- tacks, it was announced today. Doctors at Walter Reed Army Hospital said the 78-year-old Ei- senhower "rested well last night but still remains very weak." They reported "no further progression of the pneumonia" in the base of the five-star gen- eral's right lung. And they said his "cardiovascular status re- mains stable." The pneumonia, doctors had said Friday, was increasing the strain on Eisenhower's heart. He has a history of seven heart attacks. Doctors also reported they had removed tube through Eisenhower's nose into his lungi that had been used to supply him with oxygen, "and he is being given small amounts of liquids by mouth today." The doctors reported Friday Eisenhower's heart was und-r "considerable" strain from the pneumonia that apparently de- veloped Thursday night. A high-ranking Walter Reed officer said the general remains "in a serious condition" and still is in the critical period fol- lowing Sunday night's surgery to remove an intestinal obstruc- tion. But he said none of the Eisen- hower family has been sum- moned to the general's bedside although his wife, Mamie, has been staying in an adjacent suite. The doctors, however, in their late bulletin Friday at Walter Reed General Hospital, said "heart action is being constant- ly monitored and his cardiac Czechs Condemn Soviet Doctrine By JONATHAN RANDAL NIW York Tima Strviei Czechoslovak Communist Party newspaper condemned today any "return to outdated centralist forms" of world Communist unity and im- plicitly rejected the "limited sovereignty" doctrine Invoked by the Soviet Union last year to justify the invasion of Czech- oslovakia. Moreover, Rude Pravo called for open democratic discussions in future meetings of the badly strained worldwide movement, a prospect scarcely likely to please the Soviets if carried out at the Moscow summit confer- ence scheduled for May. The statement of the Czechoslovak Communist party's democratic platform was contained In a long article commemorating the 50th anni- versary of the third Communist International, better known ss the Comintern. The Comintern was dissolved in 1943. Town Clerk Lists Hudson Filings HUDSON Frances S. Baker, town clerk, has announced the following filings for town offices to date: Selectman: John M. Bednar Stanley Alukonls. Town clerk: Frances S. Baker. Town Treas- urer: Blanche C. Fuller. of the Trust Funds: Ernest E. McCoy. Budget Committee for three years: George Arris and Robert J. Deminico. Mrs. Baker reminds all resi- dents that filing for town office closes this Monday, March 9, at 5 p. m. By contrasting the openness of the Comintern's early years under Lenin with the period under Stalin, the article indirectly criticized the present leaders of the Kremlin. In what amounted to condem- nation of the Soviet occupation, theoretically not permitted to Czechoslovak politicians and journalists, Rude Pravo said: "Lenin and some other Comin- tern functionaries were that a permanently active con- centration of revolutionary forces could not be fruitful through mere military occupa- tion." "The variety of conditions in which Communists wage their struggle has developed to such an the article said, "that principals ef democratic centralism corresponding to parties' internal structures can no longer be applied to their mutual relations." Shorn of jargon, this meant that unquestioning obedience to the leadership within one party, the concept of democratic cen- tralism, did not entail blind ac- ceptance of the Kremlin as tht leader of worldwide move- ment. Rude Pravo warned that sny "mechanical Imitation" ef So- vlet-imposed policy "tends violate ties of International soli- darlty rather than strengthen them." TONIGHT IN THE TELEGRAPH status remained stable through- out the day." Doctors also said the pneumo- nia was being "treated vigo- rously with appropriate antibiot- ics." "Gen. Eisenhower's condition remains essentially unchanged. He is resting they said. His position In bed In the third floor presidential suite is being changed frequently to combat She accumulation of fluid in the base of the right lung. President Nixon, due home from his European trip Sunday night, was being kept informed of the condition of man he served for eight years as vice president. The Pentagon announced Fri- day the onset of pneumonia, bringing a jarring halt to the steady stream of encouraging progress reports since Sunday night's emergency surgery to eliminate an intestinal obstruc- tion his doctors said could have been fatal. While calling his progress "little short of remarkable" earlier In the week, doctors had also cautioned that the general "will have to be watched espe- cially carefully during the next two weeks." The Pentagon announced that Eisenhower had spent a restless Thursday night and had trouble breathing, with his condition be- coming "generally weaker" by Friday morning. Eisenhower's condition is diagnosed as hypostatic pneu- monia, which the doctors said "is a common probtem follow- ing surgery, particularly in the elderly." By FRANK CORMIER PARIS Nixon and President Charles de Gaulle conferred for 80 minutes today in the guarded splendor of the Tri- anon Palace in suburban Versailles, their second day of talks that Nixon hoped would diminish differences betwen the United States and France. No Comments Only interpreters were with the two presidents for that ses- sion in De Gaulls palace office. Spokesmen would reveal noth- ing of what was said, although French spokesman Roger Vaurs said he assumed the tone and atmosphere were "as cordial as While De Gaulle and Nixon conferred, White House press secretary Ronald L. Ziegler an- nounced the U.S. President will meet Sunday with Vice Presi- dent Nguyen Cao Ky of South Vietnam, before he departs for Rome to meet Pope Paul VI. Thus as Nixon neared the end of his eight-day trip across Western Europe, the war in Southeast Asia was on his agen- da- U.S. policy in Vietnam has been a troublesome issue in re- lations with De Gaulle. Euro- pean suspicion that the United States is preoccupied with Viet- nam and has not been sufficient- ly attentive to allies in Europe is one of the problems Nixon set out to ease. Ziegler said Nixon would see Ky after conferring at the U.S. Embassy with Henry Cabot Lodge, chief U.S. negotiator at the Vietnam peace talks, and with other members of the ne- gotiating team. Ky returned from Saigon Monday. Ziegler said Nixon had indi- cated before leaving Washing- ton that, if Lodge thought it ap- propriate, he would see Ky while in Paris. The scene of Nixon's second meeting with De Gaulle was the vast, rambling palace which is a ceremonial country estate of French presidents. The two men met in an office overlooking the gardens of Ver- sailles. The interpreters were the only other men in the room for 83 minutes. Then French Premier Mau- rice Couve de Murville joined them for a second round lasting 25 minutes. That, in turn, gave way to an expanded conference with six advisors joining each president- The advisers included Secre- tary of State William P. Rogers and French Foreign Minister Michel Debre. After a luncheon and a stroll through the Versailles gardens, the expanded talks were to con- tinue until late afternoon. Nixon drove from Paris In a White House limousine along streets cleared of traffic. There were no big crowds in the city, only a few curious passers-by. Security was stringent, with cordons of police, some with watchdogs, patrolling the palace grounds. De Gaulle met Nixon at the red marble entrance, the two shook hands and entered at once. Tours of the main Versailles Palace, about a mile away, were suspended for the day. Nixon was said to feel, after his two hours of talks with De Gaulle Friday night, that the conversations here were off to a "good start." Ziegler, quoting him to that effect, said the first meeting had been in a "frank and cordial and the French spokesman echoed this.

The weather was cold and' overcast as they shook hands cordially and went to the wing of the palace which De Gaulle has set aside for his personal use. There were large forces of po- lice along Nixon's route, but there were no spectators. Only i few persons were along streets Inside Paris, and in tht area of the outer gates of Trianon a gathering of 60 or 70 persons was on hand to see Nix- on arrive.

ERB BERLIN (AP) A two-hour blockade of autobahn traffic by East German soldiers coincided today with reaffirmation from the Western Big Three of their determination to maintain un- hindered access between West Berlin and West Germany. The United States, Britain and France rejected as groundless Soviet charges of West German military activity in the isolated former German capital.

Shaw, 55, of a charge of conspir- ing to assassinate President John F. Kennedy. Read to a packed, heavily guarded Criminal District Court at a.m., the verdict trig- gered a moment of bedlam. There was an earsplitting con- certed shriek from the women spectators. The 12-man jury rejected both the state case and Dist. Atty.

Much of the prosecution case concentrated on attacking the commissions conclusion that Oswald, a former New Orleans resident, was alone and unaided in the assassination.

It is not the de- sire of the three governments to see such an increase In tension occur. "The three governments reaf- firm their determination to maintain a viable Berlin with free access." West Berlin's Mayor, Klaus told newsmen he is convinced his city is not con- fronted by a grave new crisis, but rather is being subjected to a war of nerves, "below the lev- el of a serious confrontation." Speaking after meeting with his city government and with U.S., British and French en- voys, Schuetz said, however, further "short-term disturb- ances like this morning can be repeated." East German soldiers armed with submachine guns blocked the main highway between West Germany and West Berlin at the Helmstedt crossing point from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. Then they re- opened it. The closure followed a Soviet announcement backing "neces- sary measures to cut short the unlawful militaristic activities" in West Berlin and an accusa- tion from Moscow that Western air links to the isolated city were being used illegally. It apparently signaled the start of maneuvers by Soviet and East German Warsaw Pact forces. The maneuvers in East Germany have been scheduled to start around the same time as West Germany's March 5 presidential election in West Berlin. They are generally re- garded as another Communist harassment tactic (o hinder ac- cess to West Berlin for the elec- tion, which the Soviets and East Parochial School Problems in N.H.

They said they saw troops, trucks and other military equipment mov- ing on the autobahn. It also was reported that Mar- shal Ivan I. Yakubovsky, su- preme commander of Warsaw Pact forces, flew to East Berlin Friday to confer with East man President Walter Ulbricht. West German border officials said the East Germans threw red and white portable iron fences across the autobahn ac- cess and exit at Marienborn, op. posite the West German border checkpoint, at Helstedt, at 7 a.m. They were removed at 9 a.m. and Helmstedt officials said western traffic began to move again. The East Germans already have barred West German pres- idential electors and members of the West German armed forces from surface travel through East Germany to West Berlin. Western officials had suspected the maneuvers would further hamper road access.
