Democrats Settle Differences CONCORD, N.H. (AP) All's well with New Hamp- shire's Democratic legislative delegation again. The minority party's dissi- dents have settled their differ- ences with House leader Robert Raiche of Manchester- Raiche said he gained a clear- er understanding during a 45- minute Democratic session Wednesday. He said the differences were settled and the Democrats have placed "their confidence in to a greater degree now than they did January first" when the session got under way. What's more, he added, "I have in no way apologized for my vote" in favor of the abor- tion-law reform bill which brought the whole turmoil to a head. Unity Pledged Raiche indicated the meeting found the dissidents pledging unity to the leadership. Later in the day, in Manches- ter, Raiche said he is not run- ning for mayor of Manchester this year. He said he gave serious con- tideration to seeking the job at one time but "I am not really candidate for mayor at this time. I do not intend to run for mayor." He said there are some pro- blems In the city and some "things that I would like to sec done." He added, he is still working en his graduate degree and ing some college teaching. On Wednesday, the 32-year- old minority leader denied a re- port that he would seek to un- teat Rep. Louis Wyman, R- N.H., In next year's election. Before the meeting, Ernest Coutermarsh of Nashua told newsmen he has no quarrel with Raiche. Coutermarsh had said after TONIGHT IN THE TELEGRAPH. Abby 14 1 Nashua Scene 4 Raiche was booed on the House floor after the abortion vote that he would be a candidate for Raiche's job if Raiche re- signed. Coutermarsh made it a point to tell newsmen that "Bob had the right to vote the way he did and I supported' him when everyone else was at his throat-" He added, however, the rea- son he had said he would like to be minority leader was that before the session began he had been a serious candidate for the job and if the job were open he wanted to make himself avail- able. Other Developments In other legislative develop- ments: Atty. Gen. George Pappa- gianis said late Wednesday he is holding a legal opinion "in abeyance" because there's a strong probability that a legis- lative mileage issue "may be settled by appropriate action" on the House floor. Comptroller Leonard Hill has asked Pappagianis which legis- lators are to be paid mileage for coming to Concord on the two days that the legislature was called off last week be- cause of the snowstorm. The House had passed a mo- tion that although there were no sessions, no lawmaker was ab- sent. Although legislative leaders had called off the sessions, some House members held a brief session on Tuesday. Then, on Thursday, the House re- solved that even though the ses- sions didn't exist, everybody was there anyway.

DEMOCRATS Page I By BILL ROBERTS HUDSON Last night's Hudson School District meeting was adjourned to next Wednesday night im- mediately following the de- feat of Warrant Article 14 that requested an. addition to the Memorial School- Article Explained The article reads: "To see II the District will vote to author- ize the design, construction and equipping of an addition to the Memorial School, and to appro- priate at sum not to exceed 000 for this purpose." The article, requiring a bond issue, also requires a two-thirds vote to pass, but was defeated with the vote 131 yes, 75 no. The original article was for but was amended by the Hudson School Board after the opening of the construction bids yesterday. The low bidder was the Davison Construction Company of Hooksett with a base and alter- nate of The bid was a construction bid only, and did not include other necessary items such as architects fees, grading, equipment and other items. The article was submitted with the recommendation of the Budg- et Committee. Lengthy discussion and debate preceded the vote, which was by secret ballot. Thof Groundhog fs That groundhog really did it this time! While fulfilling his Feb. 2 promise for six more weeks of winter, he put Nashua on the weather map last night as one of the coldest spots In the nation. This dubious distinction was shared with Lebanon, N.H., which matched Nashua's nighttime low of 10 below zero. The highest temperature hi Nashua yesterday was 28. The alarming part Is that per- haps Air. Groundhog Is even try- ing to set an international record. H was colder here yesterday than In Copenhagen Moscow's af- ternoon temperature was 21. And, Oslo, Stockholm and Warsaw all recorded highs of 27. Oh well remember the groundhog Is running out of time. The sixth week begins Sunday. Quorum Lacking At Hearing On Superior Court Proposal By MARSHA CLEMENT The Nashua delegation to the N.H. General Court will meet in executive session today to water down a proposed law that would discontinue terms of Superior Court in Nashua. A public hearing on the meas- ure, called by the delegation, was held last night in City Hall. How- ever, only seven members of the delegation were present, leaving the group without a quorum. In order for a vote to be legal, at least 14 of the 26 members must be in attendance. Therefore, delegation chairman Rep. Roland H. LaPlante, D-Ward 3, will convene the legislators in executive session today to act on an amendment which would allow that "Nashua area non-jury cases are to be held in Nashua, and other non-jury cases may be held in Nashua, at the discretion of the court." The amendment was proposed at the hearing by Nashua lawyers S. Robert Winer and Leonard J. Velishka, representing the Bar As- sociation. The only other citizen present to speak on the measure was County Commissioner Armand A. Beaulieu, who endorsed the amendment. LaPlante Confident LaPlante is confident that the delegation will accept the amend- ment unanimously, as a previous poll of the group shows that all are against discontinuing court sessions here. The measure, officially known as House Bill No. 246, is spon- sored by Rep. Kimon S. Zachos, a Republican from Manchester's Ward 1. His original proposal would have meant that no Su- perior Court cases would be heard In Nashua. He recently amende! the bill to allow non-jury cases and mo- tions to be held in -Nashua at specified times. However, it was the consensus of the delegation that the amendment has so many loopholes, that it effects no real change on the original measure, whereas the amendment offered by the two Nashua lawyers would create a definite change, and at least retain some of the court cases here. LaPlante noted that opposition to the bill, even as amended by Zachos, has also been expressed by House Speaker Marshall Cob- leigh, who was stricken ill yes- terday and was unable to attend, and Stale Senator Thomas J. Cla- veau of Hudson, whose senatorial district encompasses two Nashua wards. Attendance List Those legislators present at the hearing, in addition to LaPlante, were: Representatives Helen Barker, R-Ward 2; John Latour, D-Ward S; Samuel Mason, D-Ward 4; Leo Sirois, R-Ward 8; Arthur Bouley, D-Ward 6; and Adelard Aubut, D-Ward 7. In addition to Cobleigh, those absent were: Representatives Maurice Bouchard, R-Ward 1; Jean Wallin, D-Ward 1; Louis Record, R-Ward 2; Agenor Bel- court, D-Ward 3; Romeo Lesage, D-Ward 3; Peter Cote, D-Ward 4; Theresa Drabinowicz, D-Ward 4; William Desmarais, D-Ward 5; Henry Lachance, D-Ward 5; Ar- thur Poliquin, D-Ward 5; Francis Chamard, D-Ward Margaret Cote, D-Ward Ralph Boisvert, D-Ward 7; Wilfrid Boisvert, D- Ward 7; Robert Dion, D-Ward 8; Eugene DuBois, D-Ward 8; Oscar Bissonnette, D-Ward 9; and Ern- est Coutermarsh, D-Ward 9. Then is a stronger possibility that an attempt to bring the vote up for reconsideration will be made when the meeting resumes. However, legal authority will have to be consulted to deter- mine whether or not the criteria for reconsideration has been met. No definite statement on the reconsideration was made by the school authorities. In other activities, a vote to ac- cept and implement teachers sa- lary schedule as recommended by the School Board with a starting salary of for a Bachelor of Arts Degree was accepted on a secret ballot vote 169 yes, 114 no. In reference to the vote, Ken- neth Clark, School Board mem- ber, said that this is the first School District in the state to ratify a professional negotiating contract between the Teachers Association and the School Board. Article 9, establishing the sala- ries of school district officers as: School Board, Moderator, Clerk, and Treasurer, passed after considerable discussion. Lake Munday, mode- rator, had moved to amend the original amount of to zero. This was defeated. Selectman Frank Nutting then moved to amend the amount to which was passed. The article to hear reports of agents, auditors, committees, or officers chosen on a motion by School Board Chairman Warren Howe to be accepted as printed in the Town Report, was passed by voice vote. The article involving tuitton pupils at Alvirne High School Was -tabled for discussion next week. The meeting adjourned at 1 a.m. and some 400 Hudson residents attended. Attendance Is Disappointing At Hearing On City's Future By CLAUDETTE DUROCHER If you measured the concern of Nashuans for their city by the size of the attendance at last night's public hearing on community planning objectives, you could say only 31 really cared. That was the number of per- sons attending the hearing con- ducted by the Planning Board' And of this number, four were board members and thret others, aldermen. A second hearing on the tame topics will be held Monday night at in the City Hall auditorium. Commenting on the aim of the community objectives hearing, City Planner Fred D. McCut- chen said: "We don't intend to railroad our land use plan on the com- munity. If the people don't want it they would find a way to get back at us... they'd pick the plan apart. They wouldn't have any confidence In us and the plans won't have any mean- ing." McCutchen said the response to a published questionnaire on community planning objectives had been disappointingly small. "This is the problem we are running he said, "people have seen the questionnaire but they are not answering them." Appeals to Residents He appealed to residents to answer the questionnaire, say- ing responses could be phoned Into the planning office at 92 Main St. for the sake of con- venience. "The Planning Board and con- sultants are struggling to de- velop long-range plans but we don't want to take the attitude we should just tell people what their city should be aiming for. "We don't think that's the way It should be done." McCutchen said the purpose of the hearings was to collect opinions from Nashuans on de- sirable goals for the city, "be- cause In the long run, If ws are going to intelligently plan for Nashua, we can't go in all directions... we must set up our objectives and proceed that way." He said tne land use plan being drawn up by the consult- ing firm of Metcalf and Eddy should be ready by late sum- mer or early fall. It will include a revamped zoning code for the entire city, he said, but should not be con- sidered as a comprehensive master plan for Nashua. In essence, McCutchen said, the land use plan Is the begin- ning stage for comprehensive planning- Douglas D. Robertson, Plan- ning Board member, conducted the hearing which took on aspect of an Informal and wide- ranging "talk-in" on planning. Five Propositions Used as a guideline for the hearing were the five proposi- tions listed in the questionnaire. ATTENDANCE I Leaders of Both Parties Praise Nixon's Attitude By PETER GROSE Niw York Tfmw ttrniot WASHINGTON President Nixon drew praise from leaders of both parties on capitol hill today for his restrained attitude toward international crises from Vietnam to Berlin. Maintaining the cautious tone set at Tuesday night's news con- ference, the White House de- clined to comment on first re- ports of a new serious rocket attack on the center of Saigon. A spokesman simply reiterated Nixon's warning to North Viet- nam that "the fact that we have shown patience and forbearance should not be considered as a sign of weakness." Gerald L. Warren, Deputy Press Secretary, added that De- fense Secretary Melvin R. Laird was presently on his way to Saigon, accompanied by the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, Gen. Earle G. Wheeler, on a fact-finding Mission. The President said at his news conference that Laird's first- hand report would be considered in deciding on an "appropriate response" to the enemy attacks of the last ten days. Laird said his main purpose was to "explore the situation as it exists in view of the pres- ent escalation on the part of the enemy." But, he added, "I am going over to assemble the facts, not to make forecasts." Critics of the Vietnam War in the Senate expressed satis- faction with the calm way in which the Nixon administration was reacting to fhe enemy fo- fensive. Without ruling out mili- tary retaliation if the assaults continue, Nixon nevertheless made clear that he would move cautiously so as not to disrupt the Paris peace talks. The Laird Wheeler Mission, planned several weeks ago, seemed likely to delay any early decision about military require- New President Chosen Justice Minister Gustav Heinemann is elected to succeed President Heinrich Luebke of West Germany.

Mike Mansfield, D-Mont., a leading Democratic critic of the Johnson administration's war policy, said "as I see it, Mr. Nixon Is trying to walk a tightrope between escalating war on one hand and further negotiations." One result, Senator Mansfield said, might be "fewer public meetings and more private con- ferences" in Paris between the U.S. negotiator, Henry Cabot Lodge, and the North Vietna- mese representatives. The seventh formal session of the Paris talks Is scheduled for to- day. Another Democrat, Sen. Al- bert Gore of Tennessee, was re- luctant to comment in detail on Nixon's remarks about Viet- nam, saying "I don't know what he considers to be an appro- priate response." From the Republican side, the House Minority Leader, Gerald Ford, said "it was truly re- markable that an American President would bring the peo- ple as fully into the working of personal diplomacy and the formulation of foreign policy" as did Nixon. The Speaker, Rep. John W. McCormack, D-Mass., echoed this sentiment. "I thought he gave a lot of information to thi was favorably im- pressed." Cobleigh Listed As Comfortable The office of House Speaker Marshall Cobteigh reported to- day that the speaker is resting comfortably in St. Joseph's hospital and that he "does not appear to have as was feared earlier. 38-year-old speaker .was being treated for a pain in his lower right side and was sched- uled to undergo more tests to- day.
