H. 20 PAGES Price TEN CUN'IV Moon Shots Slated By PAUL RECER HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) H the first manned lunar landing comes off as planned In July, gpace official says, it will be fol- lowed up by a series of otheri for "a sum total of 10 voyagei to the surface of the moon" Dr.. Thomas 0. Paine, admin- istrator of the National Aero- nautlcs and Space Administra- tion, told the Air Force Associa- tion convention Thursday: "If we do make the first touchdown this summer, we'll follow that with three similar voyages, each time increasing the scientific equipment." Each of the first four moon landings, he said, would leave equipment to measure lunar surface disturbances and to re- flect laser beams back to earth. The six later landings, he gaid, could be set up in areas of the most significant interest and could Include overland explora- tion. Paine said the second decadt of space exploration which be- gan this year would include a number of probes of Earth's sis- ter planets. Two probes, one launched last month and the other due to leave next week, will orbit Man and send back to Earth televi- sion pictures of that planet. They also will transmit temper- atures, examine the Martian at- mospheres and measure light radiation. "We hope to get a fairly defin- itive idea as to whether or not conditions on Mars are such" that life might Paine taid. Mars orbiters also will bi launched in 1971 and two un- manned landings will be at- tempted in 1973. During the 1977 to 1979 period, Paine said, it will be possible to launch an unmanned probe which will make "a grand -tour of four planets, using the gravi- tational pull of each to speed to- ward the next. Nashua Man, 25, Dies In Highway Accident Endorses ABM System Secretary of Defense Melvin Laird said that the modified "Safeguard" anti- ballistic missile system will protect the United States and "will work." He testi- fied, along with Deputy Defense Secre- tary David Packard, in background, be- fore the Senate Armed Services Com- mittee.

Included In the special supple- ment are numerous stories and photos of the history of the James E. Coffey Post of Nashua, M well as items of national Interest By WALTER R. MEARS WASHINGTON (AP) One of the Senate's bitter- est foes of missile defense promised the White House "ample opportunity to pre- sent its case" today as op- ponents got their first chance for free-wheeling crass examination of ad- ministration spokesmen. Assurance Given The assurance was given by Democrat Albert Gore of Tennessee irt advance of Secre- tary, of 'Defense Melvin R. Laird's nationally televised ap- pearance before the senator's disarmament subcommittee. But Gore also hinted it the expected; barrage being pre- pared by critics when he sai4. that'after the administration presents' its case for a. modified Sentinel antiballistic missile (AM) system, "we'll examine it." .By appearing before the dis- armament group, Laird, after two days of testimony before the, friendly Armed Services Committee, shifted to a hotbed of Senate opposition. In fact, one of the few rough spots before the Armed Services .Committee was a fusilade of critical questions Thursday from Missouri Democrat Stuart Symington who ended up by saving: "I'm a little embarrassed at being the only gentleman who is critical of the program." In a sense, the opening round of the debate became a battle of television ratings. Laird's Thursday testimony, at what originally was to have been a closed Armed Services Commit- tee session, was nationally tele- vised. Laird blended his Insistence that the Nixon system is a na- tional defense necessity with the argument that it will not impede the arms control negotiations the President seeks. He said, in fact, that it should prove an incentive to successful negotiations. Biologists Support Nashua Park Plan Saying (hat the proposed Nashua River-Canal park would be an "invaluable service to the educational system of the biologists at Rivier College and St. Anthony Seminary, Hudson, have notified the aldermen of their support for the plan. The biologists explain their views in a letter to the alder- men. They include Sr. Claire Bileau, chairman of the Rivier biology department; Bertrand C. Dufour, assistant professor of biology at Rivier; Richard D. Harrington, instructor in bio- logy at Rivier; and Fr. Crispin Schbudel of the St. Anthony bio- logy department. "We realize that your decision (on the park system) will be based on the cost of such a park system weighed against the benefits that the community will derive from they wrote. "These benefits are usually seen as recreational ones such as picnicking, boating, fishing, hiking, bicycle riding, or es- caping from the city environ- ment to gain some peace ijnd quiet in order to think and re- flect. All of these are important reasons why the citizens of Nashua should have the pro- posed park system since this park can fulfill all these needs. Another Reason "However, as professional bio- they continue, "we would like to bring to your at- tention another reason for ap- proving the proposed park sys- tem and that is Its unique edu- cational value." After a preliminary study of the area, the college biologists noted they felt the proposed Nashua River Canal System offers a unique opportunity to the citizens of Nashua to study BIOLOGISTS Page 1 By JOHN HARRIGAN A Nashua man last night became Epping's first road fatality of the year and the 31st auto victim in the state.

Income-Sales Tax Bill Due For Review April 1 By CARL C. CRAFT CONCORD, N.H. (AP) The House Ways and Means Com- mittee will take testimony April 1 on a bill to levy a combina- tion 3; per cent income tax and 2 per cent sales tax in New Hampshire the only state without one of these so-called broad-based levies. 1967 BUI Killed A similar bill was killed, 233- 135, by the House at the 1967 session. At. the time, Rep. John Cone, R-Hanover, declared: "Some people said we'd get just 50 votes. We got 135, Like Mac- Arthur said, we shall return." Cone has returned. He is sponsoring the 68-page document that will come under review at the April 1 session.

John W. King had pledged to veto any broad-based .tax that might pass the legislature. Current Gov. Walter Peterson was elected de- spite his refusal to vow to veto such a levy Peterson took .the view that to make such a vow in advance of being faced wftK such a decision of to veto or-not to veto was an insult to the intelligence of the legisla- tors. Instead, Peterson pledged to "resist" new taxes and hunt for ways to gain more revenue from existing sources. In pursuit of this goal, he was successful in obtaining a Citi- zens Task Force that will make an in-depth study of state gov- ernmental effectiveness and re- port by Nov. 1. Meantime, he has' recommended "hold the line" 1970-71 budgets million for an operating budget and 118.47 million for a capital construction budget. Against that backdrop, the powerful Ways and Means Com- mittee will hear testimony on the measure which would make "major revamping on the state's taxing structure. Estimated Yield Cone said today in an inter- view that he estimates the sales tax he's recommending would yield million to million a year, while the income tax he's suggesting would be figured on the federal taxable income and produce million to million annually. He said he's aware that it is "an uphill fight to pass a tax like this in the present legisla- ture." Cone added that he's aware some members of the Ways and Means Committee have the same feeling, He said that the current bill bears no major changes from the 1967 measure except that the "distribution is a little dif- ferent" in the amount returned to local governments to take the place of income lost from taxes that are being repealed. He added that wording has been inserted so that "towns might take advantage of federal funds that they might not other- wise be able to take advantage of." In other legislative develop- ments: A bill creating a meat in- spection service in New Hamp- shire has been entered state Senate. It has been dis- patched to the Senate's Public Health Committee for hearings. The plan Is sponsored by Ma- jority Leader Creeley Buchan- an, R-Amherst, and Minority Leader Harry Spanos, D-New- pprt; The measure is aimed at pro- tecting the health and welfare of consumers by assuring that meat and meat food products distributed to them are whole- some and not adulterated and that such products are properly marked, labeled and packaged. The House killed a meas- ure that would have established a minimum salary for fuil-time law enforcement officers. It would have set the minimum pay at a year. The House beat back attempts to pass the bill and attempts to have it sent to the Legisla- tive Council for more study. Other Action In other major action, the House sent to its Appropriations Committee a Senate-passed bill creating a commission to study non-public school problems in New Hampshire. Meanwhile, the House killed a bill that would have added one more trustee to the board of the University of New Hampshire. The House delayed action until next Thursday on a bill dealing with foster care serv- ices for certain youngsters. An amended bill requiring the creation of a manufacturing en- gineering curriculum at the .New Hampshire Technical Insti- tute In Concord was sent to the Appropriations Committee. It has the blessing of the House Education Committee.

The House also sent the Ap- propriations Committee a reso- lution to allow for the use of certain funds of the Nashua Vo- cational-Technical Institute for buying maintenance equipment and outside vehicles. The New Hampshire House will act next Wednesday on an rewritten version of a bill deal- ing with the registration and op- eration of snowmobiles. It had been scheduled for Thursday but the lower cham- ber postponed a decision. The amended version has the blessing of the Judiciary Com- mittee. The amendments elim- inate revenue for the Fish and Game Department from snow- mobile registration fees. The original measure set the fee at with of that go- ing to Fish and Game and the remaining going to the Motor Vehicle agency. The amended plan calls for the full to go into the General Fund.

Peterson's Gen- eral Fund budget he neverthe- less finds it to "be the best budg- et in all of New England."

Sullivan came a step closer to rejecting the pro- posed Nashua River-Canal park system in a statement today elaborating on his views towards the proposal. He questioned costs of main- taining such a park; suggested the Nashua-New Hampshire Foundation as a non-profit or- ganization should think of donat- ing the land rather than selling it for and stated that there are many more desirable areas in Nashua for preserva- tion purposes. A report on the advisability ot adopting the proposal, to be com- piled by the Park-Recreation Commission, will be the deciding factor as to whether he will sup- port the plan, Sullivan added. The mayor's statement is as follows; "Although the proposed cen- tral park complex is most ap- pealing on paper, one should traverse the land on foot and view the overall area. "Temporarily, or on a long- range basis, the land could ba left in its natural state as a bird sanctuary. Must Be Realistic "But to be realistic, for the next few years until the adjoining city lagoon and the thoroughly polluted surrounding river and canal are cleared, I'd hesitate to take a deep breath in most of that designated park area. "At present, I intend to rest niy decision on going into this project upon a report I have re- quested from our capable Park- Recreation Commission. This body will eventually become re- sponsible for the improvement and maintenance of this area. "The approaches to the park are questionable. Heavily trav- eled arteries and overpasses with their accompanying exhausts af- fect the park area. "It has been projected the city will spend as an initial outlay for the acquisition; But how much time and cost has been ex- pended by the planner's office, plus the appraisal? How much will it cost annually to maintain? How much will it increase the annual budget every year as it is improved? "The park proposal does look good on paper but let's turn the page and look at the expense sheet. This is not the only open space left in Nashua as has been implied. There are many more desirable areas in Nashua. "I do not hold that this is a rare opportunity- Rather, I would describe it as a concerted pro- posal that should be weighed pre- vious to the release of the budget. "If all these other budget re- quests are .un- the people of Nash- ua still wish to develop and un- derwrite this park area through additional taxation then I will get behind this proposal. "We need so many things in Nashua now and many ideas, m- eluding this one have merit; Pos- sibly the foundation being a non- profit organization should recog- nize that charity begins at and give us 'this area with ac- companying restrictions." Sen. Kennedy Urges Nixon To Shift Policy On China By PETER GROSE Niw York Timil Ntwt struct NEW YORK Sen. Edward M. Kennedy called on the Nixon administration last night for a sweeping reorientation of United States policy on China, the with- drawal of American military forces from Taiwan and the es- tablishment of consular mis- sions in Communist China as a prelude to eventual diplomatic recognition. Speaking at the dinner of a two-day conference on United States China relations here, the Senate's Democratic whip said the U.S. should offer Pe- king a "clear and attractive al- ternative to the existing im- passe in our relations." "Every new administration has a new opportunity to rec- tify the errors of the he said. "If the new administration allows this time to pass without new initiatives, if it allows in- herited policies to rush unim- peded along their course it will have wasted this opportunity." Sen. Jacob K. Javits, R-N.Y., speaking at the convocat i o n luncheon, called for'a "psycho- logical readjustment" to pre- pare for a thaw in U.S. China relations within the next five years. "The Nixon administration has a great opportunity to bury the lingering pall of McCarthy- ism which continues subtly to in- hibit thought and debate in country concerning Ja- vits said. Led by the late Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy, a cam- paign in the early 1955's "de- stroyed many of our most per- ceptive China the Senator said. It is a new generation of China specialists that is meeting at the New York Hilton now, under the chairmanship of Prof. Ed- win 0. Reischauer of Harvard University, formerly Ambassa- dor to Japan, and Professor A. Doak Barnett of Colum b 1 a, chairman of the National Com- mittee on United States China relations, which organized the conference. Nearly schol- ars, students and members of civic organizations registered for the meeting. Modification of American poli- cy toward China has long been urged by a group of senators, in addition to Kennedy and Javits also include J. W. Ful- bright, the Arkansas Democrat, who is chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. At one of his news confer- ences, President Nixon said he was familiar with their views, but he added that in light of Peking's continued refusal to talk with the United States, he foresaw no early improvement in relations. Kennedy expressed bitternesi over the effects of the Nixon Administration's decision to de- ploy an anti-ballistic missile sys- tem. "It is likely to be seen in Pe- king as a new military provoca- tion by the United he said. "From the Chinese per- spective, the only utility of an American ABM system is to de- fend the United States against whatever feeble response Pe- king could muster after American first strike against China."
