Over the next few months, and possibly well into the win- ter, they will be slowly burn- ing tons of junk and Wood on the property of the John Wollen estate, a large piece of land now dotted with huge piles of scrap wood and old cars. The area is situated between tlie Boston and Maine Railroad tracks and Pine Hill Road, and borders on Charron Avenue to the west. The property is now owned by Samuel Tamposi. According to Chief Albert L. Tanguay, Wollen had a philoso- phy that anything that could be stored was of value. This in- cluded bits of wood, cracked tim- bers and pieces of concrete. "We used to come over here all the time to try to get him to get rid of some of this Tanguay said as he pointed to a giant pile of everything con- ceivable. "But to him, all of this was good." Making a whirlwind tour of the 'Tanguay pointed out numerous interesting and unsavory items that had piled up over the years. At one point in the.tour, an interesting piece of wood and iron turned out to be some type of drum, like those used to select bingo numbers, which was probably used at some time to remove unwanted loose pieces for some industrial pur- pose. Six Acres Tanguay said there are about six acres that will have to be Cost of Police Protection At Greeley Park Debated Jy CLAUDETTE DUROCHER A meeting of the finance committee, the police commis- sion and the Park Recreation commission will be called to iron out which department should assume costs for police protection at Greeley Park. -Under present arrangements, two policemen are stationed at the park daily for six hours each on an overtime basis with the police department and the P-R department splitting costs. P-R Commissioner Allan B. Silber said the terms had been -drawn up with the police chief police surveillance for the park was requested but the P-R commission hadn't been happy about the arrangement even then. Silber said he felt that Gree- ley Park duty should be incor- porated as part of regular beats and that the police de- partment should assume all costs as part of services rend- ered by that department. Costs of maintaining police -iiiards at the park from May l to Sept. 7 are estimated at Flower Destruction Silber said the destruction of 300 dahlias two days after they were set out at the park had prompted the commission to seek police assistance. "We all thought the answer was there should be a policeman there. When we went to find out if we could have a police officer there, the police chief said he didn't have the money in his budget and that the men posted would have to be on overtime Silber ex- plained. He said the P-R department does not have any funds in its budget earmarked for policing of the park and that the half share of costs expected from it would have to be taken from its overtime account, possibly to the detriment of its own work schedule. POLICE Page 2 burned. Included in the job ahead are about half a dozen large buildings and other small- er structures. Adding to probable headaches for firemen are several.stacks of cordwood that were never put to use. In some areas, piles of wood chips and blocks go deep into the ground, a fact which, causes some concern for burners. Tanguay says the project will i a slow one. "We can't just come in here and burn the whole thing he says. 'If we do, we'll have another conflagration on our hands." He added that a large fire in the area would create a tre- mendous updraft and endanger aircraft coming in for a landing at Boire Field. Some of the land will have to be bulldozed before it can be burned. The trash and wood is simply scattered over too large an area to be effectively destroyed. Fire officials say the opera- tion will be a slow one and a careful one. Memories of the Crown Hill fire of 1930 afflict a fireman when he sees huge piles of wood and tinder-dry buildings. Writer Recalls How Omaha Beach Invasion on D-Day Nearly Failed By JOHN VINOCUR BAYEUX, France (AP) "What people don't know is how really close the Americans on Omaha Beach were to turning around on D-Day. The truth is I didn't know when I wrote 'The Longest said Cornelius Ryan.

He said he had the feeling that something was not quite put he wrote about the invasion. But he said he learned about the near failure at Omaha Beach only after his book was out. The knowledge.came to him in hun- dreds of hours of post-publica- tion conversation and investiga- tion. For Ryan, the success of the invasion hinged on one hour of decision by Gen. Omar Bradley on Omaha Beach, where virtual- ly no progress had been made six hours after the landing at dawn. "Bradley will deny it to his last days, but around noon at Omaha .we were getting no- where and thinking of pulling Ryan said. Back in Eng- land, Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhow- er already had prepared a one- sentence communique announc- ing the failure of the attack, Ryan said. "Looking at what the conse- quences would have been, the best thing you can see is anoth- er invasion, but one that would have taken 18 more months to prepare if the first one Ryan continued. "In that time, the Nazis might have sued for, peace and we might have been forced to let them off on something ap- proaching (heir terms. Or, then, if the invasion were delayed, we probably would have met the Russians at the French-German border."

Member, Cong Accuses Nixon Of Intensifying War By Michael Goldsmith PARIS (AP) North Vietnam accused President Nixon today of outdoing former President Lyndon B. Johnson in intensifying the Vietnamese war in pur- suit of "neo colonialist aims." South Vietnam at the 20th session of the ex- panded peace talks accused the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong of trying to de- lay negotiations "because yoli expect a military vic- tory." More Restrained The United States was more restrained, asking North Viet- Pappagianis Issue Draws No Comment CONCORD, N.H. (AP) Neither Gov. Walter Peterson nor Atty. Gen. George Pappagi- anis are commenting on a re- lort the governor had asked :he attorney general to resign. The report that Pappagianis lad been asked to give up the job as the state's lop law enforcement officer or- iginated late Wednesday in Portsmouth. A spokesman for-the Republi- can governor, Robert Billiard, said: "We neither confirm or deny it. We have no comment." Pappagianis himself also said, "No comment." It has been learned that some lime ago, the governor, asked Pappagianis to resign for a spot on the state Tax Commission. Appointments to the Tax Com- mission are the bailiwick of the state Supreme Court. But it was understood Peterson would have recommended Pappagianis for the commission. Pappagianis reportedly re- 'used, saying he preferred be- ing attorney general. Since that time, the Tax Commission va- cancies have been filled. nam whether it was prepared to withdraw its forces in a peace settlement. Ha-Van Lau, North Vietnam's deputy: representative, devoted almost his entire speech to an attack on the Nixon administra- tion. He sat in for chief negotia- tor Xuari Thiiy, who is in Hanoi for consultation. U.S. Ambassador Henry Ca- bot Lodge, who leaves later in the day en route to Midway Is- land for the meeting of Nixon Sunday with President Nguyen Van Thieu of South Vietnam, asked a series of questions about the Viet Cong's 10-poirit peace plan. He asked North Vietnam and the Viet Cong's National Libera- tion Front to spell out specifical- ly whether North Vietnam is prepared to withdraw its troops from South, Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia and what kind of in- ternational supervision would be acceptable. On the question of a political settlement, Lodge urged the NLF to accept Thieu's offer for private negotiations. He de- scribed as unrealistic the NLF's insistence that'll would not deal with the present Saigon govern- ment. Lau reiterated that the only solution to the war must be based on the NLF's plan, includ- ing unconditional withdrawal of all American troops and estab- lishment of a coalition govern- ment in Saigon. "This is the only honorable way out for the he said. South Vietnam's chief negotia- tor, Pham Dang Lam, opened the session by declaring that "no question related to the fu- ture of the 17 million people of Vietnam can be discussed and solved without the participation and the approval" of the Saigon government. "No true solution, no genuine solution to the Vietnam problem can be achieved by seeking to eliminate the government of the Republic of he said. "The consequences of that ma- neuver are only to prolong the war and delay the restoration of peace." Lam restated the points of similarity which he and U.S. Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge had previously said they noted between President Nixon's eight-point peace plan and the 10-point plan of the National Liberation Front. He again called on the Hanoi and NLS delegations to begin serious ne- secret, if neces- the basis of those points in. the two plans which have common ground. Lam's statement contained no reference to the meeting on Midway Island next Sunday between Nixon and President Nguyen Van Thieu Lam said Nixon's peace plan "is consistent with the basic six-point position of the Republ- ic of Vietnam." He said; more than two months had gone bv since President Thieu proposed private, and secret talks with tht NLF but no appropriate re- sponse" had been given "Your lack of good will can only be explained by a single Lam told Ha Van Lau, North Vietnam's deputy repre- sentative, and Mrs Nguyen TM Binh of the NLF. Your side deliberately seeks to delay these meetings because you expect a military victory and favorable political events in the hope that your demands will be accepted in their entirety. You do not want a negotiated solution which both sides would find satisfactory." Chile Shuns Rockefeller SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) A third South American shut the door to Gov. Nelson A.
