Truck Cars Killed in the collision between. a truck and. two cars was Ma- rion T. of 17-Ray- mond Streetj Nashua, in Brighton, Mass. She was pronounced dead at the icehe by Dr. Augusta Law of Milford, acting medical referee. (Obituary on Page 2) The collision occurred at the Intersection of Houtes 101 and 122 in Araherst village. State Police said the Mclnnis vehicle was traveling north on Route.122 when it collided with a seven-ton, dumptruck, carry- ing U tons of gravel, which was eastbound on Route 101. The driver of the truck, Albert of Nashua Street, Mil- ford, received knee injuries in the accident. The impact of Die collision, heard by persons in the town square 300 yards distant, over- turned the track and. sent the Mclnnis. vehicle smashing into a parked car belonging to Les- ter .Greenwood, 26, of Hollis. Greenwood and a pedestrian, Leon Spauldihg, 14, of Hudson, were knocked to the ground by the.force.of the second collision. Greenwood was held overnight at Memorial Hospital for right leg injuries, while Spaulding was treated and released. The Mclnnis car caromed off the Greenwood vehicle and crashed through an overhead door at Barrett's garage coming to rest inside (he bay, nearly 75 feet from the point of original impact, Door Smashed Stephen Warren, 20, of Wal- nut Hill Road, Amherst, said he was greasing a car which was bn'a lift when the Mclnnis car came smashing through t h e wooden door. Warren said the vehicle struck three large bar- rels and then bumped the rear, of another car in the garage. Warren was not injured. William Hart, of Brook Road, Amherst, (he father of the driver of the truck, had some comments about the intersec- tion where the accident oc- curred. "I've been plowing this road for 20 he said, "and my heart's in my mouth every time I cross this junc- tion." He said that poor visibility at the crossroads has caused many accidents there but that the state cannot im- prove the location because it does not own the land on which trees -obstructing the view stand. The elder Hart said his son had bought the large truck re- cently. He .said the vehicle was hauling fill to a new develop- ment a short way from the ac- cident scene. Almost 12 tons of gravel.

Probe Shows GOP Leaders Knew of Abe Fortas Issue By WARREN WEAVER JR. New York Timos servlos WASHINGTON Prominent close associates of Richard M. Nixon, were aware at least eight months ago of a potential- ly explosive relationship be- tween Abe Fortas, then a Su- preme Court Justice, and Louis E. Wolfson, then awaiting sen- tence on perjury and conspiracy convictions. They did not regard their in- formation as detailed or conclu- sive enough either to inject it into the controversy over For- tas' nomination as Chief Jus- tice or to make it an issue in the presidential campaign, then just getting under way. The Republican information on the Forlas-Wolfson association did form the basis, however, lor a warning passed to Sen. Jacob K. Javits, then seek- ing re-election to a third term. It was suggested that Javits avoid any close campaign iden- tification with Fortas. There is no evidence that these Republican politicians had any knowledge of the fee Fortas had received from the Wolfson family foundation for prospective services and had re- turned afler 11 months. This transaction led to his resigna- tion from the bench. But there is solid evidence that the Republican leaders were aware in September, 1968, that Fortas and Wolfson held a three-day meeting at the fi- nancier's Florida estate in 1966 and that Wolfson subsequently characterized their association in a way that could have embar- rassed Fortas and anyone who defended him. Secretary of State William P. Rogers, one of Nixon's closest advisers, said that he was aware early in the 1968 cam- paign that the former Fortas law firm once represented Wolf- son and that the' Justice involved with Wolfson in another matter." Rogers, interviewed by tele- phone in Bangkok on a South- east Asian lour, was asked if at that time he had told Nixon abot the Wolfson-Fortas rela- tionship. "I really don't remember whether I did or Rogers replied. He said, however, that he had not passed .the informa- tion on lo John N. Mitchell, then the Nixon campaign manager and now ihe United States At- torney General. Enough information about the Fortas-Wolfson association was FORTAS Page I By HOWARD BENEDICT SPACE CENTER, Hous- ton (AP) After a hectic day that put Americans on the threshold of a lunar landing, the Apollo 10 as- tronauts circled the moon leisurely today, charting the surface for future ex- plorers. Air Force Col. Thomas 1 F. Stafford and Navy Cmdrs. John W. Young and Eugene A. Cernan concentrated on photo- graphing potential landing sites and studying lunar landmarks. Awake At A.M. The astronauts had been ex- pected to sleep until about noon EOT but they advised Mission Control at a.m. that they were awake and attempting to repair a camera that had jammed Thursday. They were In their 21st orbit of the moon. They are to fire themselves out of lunar orbit early Satur- day; streaking back' across a quarter-million miles toward a splashdown in the Pacific Ocean Monday. They have a' lot to report about their remarkable, some- times hair-raising day in space Thursday. During eight hours in which Stafford and Cernan swooped within 9.4 miles of the moon's surface, Apollo 10: that the lunar landing ship, or LEM, will oper- ate in the. moon's environment. that the landing site chosen.for the first Ameri- can astronauts is smooth enough for a touchdown, but that the pilots will have lo lie very accurate: to avoid boulders and craters. dramatically that man can overcome problems in space and save a mission from potential, disaster- where instru- ments alone might fail. Stafford, Young and Cernan left little doubt that Apollo 11 will blast off for the moon July 16, carrying astronauts Neil A. Armstrong and Edwin A. Aldrin toward a landing on (he area called the Sea of Tranquiiity. After two looping dives over the primary Apollo 11 landing site near the crater Moltke, Five Dartmouth Protesters in Court on Monday PLYMOUTH, N.H. (AP) New trials for five of the 45 youths jailed for contempt of a court order to end their occupa- tion of the Dartmouth adminis- tration building have been scheduled for next Monday in Grafton County Superior Court, Justice Richard Dunfey will preside. A thi-ee-judge federal court of appeals panel in Boston directed new trials for the five who claimed they were not in the building. The federal court turned down requests for writs of habeas corpus to free 40 oth- er young people convicted of the same charge. Stafford radioed this descrip- tion: "It looks a lot smoother than some of the photos show. I esti- mate a 25 to 30 per cent semi- clear area, so if the LEM has enough hover time, it should not be a problem. However, if you come down in the wrong area and 'you don't have hover time, you're gonna have to shove off." The LEM can hover like a hel- icopter for several seconds to select ,a smooth touchdown area. Stafford, reported several boulders and craters on the fringes of the sife. Stafford and Cernan obviously were relieved when they suc- cessfully caught and redocked with Young in the command ship after their pathfinder de- icent, which had a brush with danger. "Back Home" "Man, we is 'back' Stafford exclaimed as the two craft linked up nose to nose. They had been apart as much 350 miles as Young kept the command ship circling, at a con- stant altitude of 69 miles, "Snoopy and Charlie Brown are hugging each was the exulted cry of Young. .These are the radio code names used by the two vehicles. "That rendezvous was the best we've ever' Stafford reported. "We were right up the tail all the way.'.'

BERNOTAS COPJCORD, N.H, (AP) New Hampshire House has passed one of the toughest bills against teacher militancy in the nation. It would outlaw strikes, "pro- fessional days" and mass ab- senteeism by teacher! and would impose penalties ranging' up to a day for violating court injunctions relating to ab- senteeism. The key vote on the measure Thursday was 187-123. Voting was done by the "divi- sion" method, according to the office of'the State Sergeant-at- Arms in Concord. In this way, no record is made of how indi- vidual members voted, the spokesman said. Immediately after it, the 4 0 0 member chamber killed Gov. Walter Pet- erson's proposal for a teacher negotiations' would provided for compulsory arbitration. Under the bill, absenteeism would mean the loss of pay for each day's" absence. Anyone causing a strike would face a fine. Those failing to obey a court injunc- tion could be fined a day. In addition, school boards could hire non-strikers without having them certified as teach- ers. Peterson said the get-tough bill is a "step backwards." He would not comment when asked whether he would veto the measure if it also passed the Senate. He (lid say the measure raises the possibility of trouble from the teachers. "I'm really very disappointed about it. I don't want to be pushed further into more com- ment but I think this was too punitive a he said. Robert Lewis, executive sec- retary of the New Hampshire Education Association, said to- day defeat of the governor's bill "comes as a bitter disap- pointment for those who stand for moderation in teacher-school board relationships." He characterized the bill passed by the House as "nega- tive in character and punitive Mouse Rejects Plan to Reconsider Peterson's Tax Proposal CONCORD, N.H. (AP) The House lias failed to. give Gov. Walter Peterson's real estate transfer tax proposal another chance. It voted down a motion to re- consider its killing action of the previous .day. and sealed the measure's doom. .The vital bill was among four tax measures in Peterson's rev- enue-raising package. It was es- timated to have yielded. (2.4 million for the coming fiscal hi- ennium and was considered important to provide balance for his budget recommenda- tions.; TJit measure would have raised the'transfer tax from 11 to ff'for'every worth of property changing hands. Thursday's action increased the possibility of a special leg- islative session this summer, since the governor had said as late as Thursday that if his tax proposals or suitable -equiva- lents are not approved he'd call the lawmakers back.

A proposed state constitu- tional amendment to allow New Hampshire's Legislature to meet annually, instead of once every two years, won final pas- sage in the Senate. But the vote was closer on final passage than it had been on approval earlier in the after- noon. The final passage vote was 16-4. Earlier, Senate Pres- ident Arthur Tufts cast his vole to insure the initial approval, 17-4. the measure is passed in the House, it would go to the voters at the next general elec- tion for. their approval before the change could become effec- tive. The lawmakers would still meet for 90 legislative working but they could spread them over a two-year period in- of the current system of meeting for six months during the odd-numbered years. A comprehensive meat In- spection bill was passed by the Senate and sent to -the House. It is aimed at protecting con- sumers from unwholesome, adulterated, mislabeled or de- ceptively packaged meat and meat products. The Senate Finance Commit- tee gave its blessing to the 40- page document with just one re- vision, making certain appropri- ations subject to reduction through applicable federal funds. The proposed law would cov- er the meat-handling activities of the 20 slaughtering plants and 37 processing plants in New Hampshire.

He noted that (he governor1! proposal was supported by the, NHEA arid the New-Hampshire School Boards Association. He said he hoped the Senate "will find a way to provide for the passage of reasonable teach- er negotiations legislation."

New Hampshire has had no major teacher strikes but there have, been: isolated incidents oil "professional days."

Warren has summoned the 11-member Court Administra- tion Committee for a meeting Saturday, three months before its next scheduled session. It was obvious that Warren, who sleps down as chief justice nexl month, proposed the early meeting to overcome any public doubt about the nation's court system following the resignation under fire of Supreme Court Justice Abe Fortas. No agenda is set tor the meet- ing, but the judges from U.S. circuit and district courts are expected to discuss bills pend- ing in Congress that would re- quire judges to disclose their in- come and investments. Fortas tendered his resigna- tion during the furor, caused by disclosure he had received a lee in 1966 from the fam- ily foundation of financier Loiiij E. Wolfson. Justice William 0.. Douglai also has been criticized in Con- gress for collecting annual feei from .the Parvin Foundation, which had business ties with le- gal Nevada gambling interests. And it was revealed Thursday, that Chief Justice-designate Warren.E. Burger has received as a trustee of the Mayo Foundation since he has been" a federal circuit judge. .Ernest C. Friesen, the administrative office of the United States'; Courts, said Thursday the committee could frame hard proposals lor con- sideration later by the U.S. Ju- dicial Conference or could ap- point a'committee to study the problems of judicial conduct and disclosure. Warren heads the conference, a network of leading federal judges, which over, the past 27 years has laid down a series.of rules for no total code as such. Currently there is nothing requiring a judge veal his income sources or in- vestments.
