Eisenhower today. (AP Wirephoto) By CARL C. CRAFT CONCORD, N. H. (AP) With tax reform pres- sure mounting, the House Ways and Means Commit- tee is reviewing a proposed combination broad based tax described by backers as an effective answer to revenue raising problems. Bill Explained The bill would levy: A3 per cent tax on the in- comes of individuals and corpor- ations. There would be' total ex- emptions of for each tax- payer state exemption plus federal exemption along with a matching exemp- tion for the spouse, and a total exemption state, federal for each child. It would be computed on the net federal taxable income. The Taps for Eisenhower Today By JOSEPH MOHBAT ABILENE, Kan. The body of Dwight David Eisenhower was laid to rest today at the end of the long trail that had car- ried him to the pinnacle of American military and po- litical power. Next To Son The tomb of the 34th president of the United States was a vault to that of a long-dead son the floor of a tiny chapel near the Eisenhower Li- brary in the quiet farm town of his youth. Cannon boomed a 21-gun sa- lute and riflemen loosed three volleys as the final rites for the general came to a close. A bugler sounded Taps, the soldier's farewell. As the honor guard handed' the folded Stars and Stripes that had covered the five-star gener- al's plain, GI Coffin, to his wid- ow, the strains of the West Point alma mater were heard by the hundreds massed in silence on the grounds of the Eisenhower Center. Thus, with full military hon- ors, the nation said goodbye to the man who had commanded a mighty Allied war machine to victory over Nazi Germany in World War II, then led the na- tion as president through eight years of peace. The train bearing the body and the former president's fam- ily finally pulled into this town of around dawn, after a long journey from Washington and a three-day state funeral. A military honor, guard watched over the coffin in its aged baggage car until the mo- ment arrived for the beginning of the final tribute. It was then transferred to a hearse for the 45-minute proces- sion through the streets of Ei- senhower's boyhood home town. h i t vice president for eight years, President in the procession behind Mrs. Ei- senhower and the hearse as it wound its way through town to- ward the chapel. Military units in full dress led the procession in its measured steps to the rumble of muffled drums and military flourishes. A brief prayer service was held on the steps of the Eisen- hower Library. Family and dig- nitaries sat near the flag- shrouded coffin. Only the family and very close friends were admitted for the final moments of the na- tion's tribute in the tiny chapel, some 100-yards away. The words of the burial serv- ice, however, were, carried through loudspeakers to the crowds outside. Across the street was the simple white frame house where the Abilene hero had spent his childhood be- fore heading for West Point and the military career that launched him to greatness. Then the Eisenhower family left the chapel before the lower- ing of the casket into its vaulf, and headed for seclusion. Path Cleared to Acquire Land for Future Schools By CLAUDETTE DUROCHER Reluctantly, the alder- manic finance committee has recommended passage of a resolution to allow to be taken from residual school bond funds to buy 100 acres in the southwest section of the city for future school con- struction. The decision was made last night after the com- mittee discussed the pur- chase with representatives of the Board of Education. Neither the need to buy land for school purposes nor the pro- posed purchase price was at issue. Rather, finance committee members said they were con- cerned about the seeming lack of liaison between the Board of Education and the Planning Board to develop the pending school building program. Of particular concern was a proposal to build a new "super high school" on the Yudicki land on the Main Dunstable Road. The.78-acre. property is under the jurisdiction of the school" de- Celebration of Passover Commences at Sundown At sundown tonight, members of the Nashua area Jewish Community will begin the cele- bration of the Passover. The festival of freedom, which continues for eight days, com- memorates the liberation of the Israelites from Egyptian bond- age, during the time of Moses. The Biblical story, told in the Book of Exodus, will be recalled during the first two nights of the holiday, at a special home observance, the Seder. Members of each family will, join in re- citing the Biblical passages, chanting the songs and prayers of freedom, and they will par- take of the symbolic food of the holiday. As the-Israelites fled Egypt, they ate unleavened bread, and from that time, Jewish families have .allowed no leavening in the home during P a s s o v e r, PIZZA by-Charles Famous thru out New England 147 W.

The transfer resolution would allow the school department to buy 42 acres from William F. Hall adjacent to the Yudicki land. School Supt. Edmund M. Keefe said the purchase would con- form to a recommendation from Dr. Nicldaus Engelhardt who favors construction of a "super high" on the Yudicki land. Also to be acquired through the bond issue transfer are 13 acres owned by Hall and an abutting 45 acres owned by Carl A. R. Livingstone at the junction of Gilsori and Main Dunstable Roads.. This combined parcel, which lies about a mile east from the Yudicki land, could be the site of a future junior high school or elementary school, Keefe said. In addition to the bond trans- fers, he said, the school budget will include a allocation to complete the purchase. The 42-acre parcel, Keefe noted, was to be purchased at per acre; the 13-acre parcel at per acre and the 45-acre parcel at Herbert E. Miller, Board of Education member, said the' lands would be restricted for school or recreational use. .Finance committee members agreed with Board of Educa- tion members that the purchase price of the parcels represented a bargain compared to current land prices. Mayor Dennis J. Suliivan, fi- nance committee chairman, said the Planning Board was "a little bit disgruntled" about the seeming lack of overall plan- ning for building a new high school on the Yudicki land and that it had reservations about the location.

Total income to- these local communities is figured to to per person. 2 per cent retail sales tax. Prescription drugs, food and clothing along with fuel, gas- oline, cigarettes and other items already taxed would not be subject to this retail sales levy. It would produce an estimated million, backers said, for use by the state. Committee Chairman John Ratoff, H-Hampton, said the 68- page measure and the testimony received at a lengthy hearing Tuesday night will be considered for at least a week before the committee makes its recommen- dation to the House. The committee heard nearly four hours of testimony from about 40 witnesses, most of them favoring the measure. No Official Stand The Rt. Rev. Msgr.-; Philip Kenney, vicar for community af- fairs of the Roman Catholic Di- ocese of Manchester, told the committee the diocese is taking no official stand for or against the bill. But he explained: "We seize this occasion to speak for thous- v ands of human beings caught up in the social problems ofHhis state. We therefore express the hope that additional revenues will be raised in order to meet critical needs as yet unmet." Msgr. Kenney said "social jus- tice demands that a tax struc- ture be adequate to the needs of the people and equitable in the distribution of its burden." A person's responsibility to hij neighbor is proportionate to the neighbor's need and the person's ability to come to his rescue, he added, "Looking at the total socio- economic situation of our state, we take the position that our neighbor's needs are extraordi- nary and that we are there- fore obligated to extraordinary means to help he said. He said he's recommending no particular measure but is point- ing to a goal: "The provision of essential public services to many groups .of disadvantaged citizens of New Hampshire and the improvement of the educa- tion given to our children."

The pontiff said the rebellion was against the Church's canon rule, its tradition and its author- ity. He also assailed prelates who have quit the" Church and said their crucified the Church. pointing social "problems as we see them" will be presented to Gov. Waller Peterson's Citizens Task Force that is studying the effectiveness of state govern- ment. After his remarks, Msgr. Ken- ney told newsmen that this was the first time he's gone before the Ways and Means Commit- tee to testify. Rep. John Cone, R-Hanover, spent 30 minutes explaining the provisions of his bill then was questioned by committee members for 25 minutes. In 1967, the House killed a sim- ilar proposal, 233-135. The cur- rent measure bears no major changes from the 1967 bill ex- cept that the distribution is a little different in the amount re- turned to local governments to take the place of income lost from taxes that are being re- pealed. Cone told the committez that his bill will more equally dis- tribute the burden of taxation.

Although no body was found in the car, both the front and back wind-, shields were smashed. (Telegraphoto- Car Found In River By JOHN HARRIGAN AND GREG ANDRIJSKBVICH Nashua Police today re- covered an automobile which was floating in the Nashua Hiver. The front and rear of the light blue vehicle were both smashed in. No body was found in the vehicle. Police said the vehicle was registered to Jesse J. Bryant, 21 Winnhaven Drive, Hudson, formerly Kittery, Me. No Keys The keys were not found in the ignition, indicating that the driver had left the vehicle. The car ap- peared to be in gear when it was hauled over a stone wall on the west bank of the river. Police are hurriedly checking .the registration. It was reported Bryant was employed by Sanders Associates Inc. He reportedly arrived safely for work this morning. Nashua Police Chief Paul J. Tracy Beaded the removal -opera-. tions of the small foreign made automobile which was submerged underneath -the Canal Street Bridge. Skin divers were summoned, to the'scene late .this morning to place grappling hooks under the front end of the auto in an attempt to have a wrecker draw the1 hide from the waters of the Nash- ua River. Nashua police attempted to move the vehicle by attaching a rope to the car and having the police boat tow the car to an open space. This attempt proved, futile as the rope broke. From shore, grappling hooks at- tached to steel ropes were placed in the boat so divers could pro- ceed wiuVremoval operations. Chief Tracy stated that 10 feet of skid marks were found in tht Sanders.. parking, lot heading to- ward the river. Hundreds <rf spectators jammed the area to witness the operation creating a minor traffic jam. Ad- ditional officers were summoned to ease the flow of traffic. Authorities Fear All Miners Killed BARROTERAN, Mexico (AP) Rescue workers braved cave-ins, 100-degree heat and poison gas as they dug deep to- day in a soft-coal mine in which officials said between 151 and 155 Mexican miners were buried by an explosion two days ago. Before dawn 23 bodies had been recovered. Mine officials said another 128 to 13! men were still trapped 450 feet un- derground. It was generally be- lieved all were dead. Steven experts of the U.S. Bu- reau .of Mines in Washington are. to reach this small mining town later today to advise Mexican authorities on faster removal of the dead and restoration of the shattered mine. Juan Heitz, managing direc- tor of the Altos Hornos de Mexi- co S.A. mining concern that owns the diggings, said hours of checking assignment sheets still left the whreabouts of four men in doubt. This produced the un- certainty about the .number of victims. Heitz spoke of them all as "bodies" but emphasized: are changing nothing in our ef- forts. We are not stopping for a minute, even though there is no life, Until every man is out." GOP Convinced Ted Kennedy Is Democrat to Beat in 72 By ROBERT H. PHELPS Niw York TimM Ntwi WASHINGTON The adminis- tration is now so convinced that Sen. Edward Kennedy is the most likely Democratic oppo- nent of President Nixon in 1972 that it has taken the first steps to counter any drive by him. Nixon's political staff has be- gun keeping a record of the Massachusetts Senator's views on controversial subjects. While there are no plans for an early open move gainst Kennedy, the Nixon strategists are gathering ammunition for the expected clash. The record so far indicates that Kennedy is widening his political base by taking stands on a number of controversial is- sues against the deployment of an Antiballistic Missile Sys- tem, for modification of Selec- tive Service regulations and for an expanded campaign against poverty. This political response by the White House is a tacit recogni- tion that the Massachusetts.Sen- ator had succeeded, by winning the post of Senate Whip, In ele- vating himself to be answered on the issues. From the Senator's viewpoint, his position on such issues is likely to appeal to the former supporters of Sen. Eugene Mc- Carthy, ,D-Wis., who has prac- tically withdrawn from the po- litical scene since his unsuccess- ful campaign for the Demo- cratic presidential nomination last year. The Senator's views also appeal to followers of his late brother, Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, D.-N.Y. From Nixon's viewpoint, the fact that his aides are stuffing files with material about Ken- nedy and his are making no attempt to keep thier information collecting secret- tends by itself to cast a politi- cal motive on the Senator's po- sition. Nixon is cognizant of the po- litical risks of taking strong stands on crucial issues. Even on the question of deploying an antiballistic missile, which Nix- on favors, the President has not been pushing hard to win sup- porters for his plan. Indications are that with the outcome of the congressional battle over the ABM in doubt he is, still weighing the question of how much of an advocate he. should become on the issue. It is standard practice for.na- tional political committees to keep dossiers on leading politi- cal opponents. The research de- partments of both the. Demo- cratic and Republican National Committees dd this. In the G.O.P. case, files are kept on former Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey, Sen. Edmund Muskie of Maine and Sen. George McGovern of South Da- kota, as well as Kennedy. What is different about the present situation is that only Vfa months after the start of Nixon's term his personal po- litical advisers have come to the conclusion that Kennedy is his most likely opponent in 1171 and have therefore begun keep- ing their own files on the Senator.
