Swett, Suricook, 046; Constructors, Inc., Lexing- ton, Mass., The proposals were opened by the state department of Public Works .and Highways yesterday in Concord. A department spokesman said the bids were slightly higher than estimated but it is expect- ed the department will make a recommendation for a.contract award at the June 16th meeting of Gov.

The area in question is a the western end of the hig school near Hamiito Street, where a .cement post iron rail fence runs along th sidewalk.

Someoni jroke the post at the bottom then twisted it. off its wire slip ports until it fell to the ground :t was left with sharp wires protruding from the base of the post. Although the'area is generally school property, the city is re sponsible for its upkeep.' Am since Schroeder is responsible for the care of city land, this area falls under his jurisdiction Another source of anger for Schroeder and others is the status of an old iron post on the school grounds, just a few feet from the fence .and the street. Schroeder and Nadeau say City Public Works Official Albert L Lavoie, 57, Dies Public Works Commissioner Al bert L. Lavoie, in Me- morial. Hospital this morning after a brief illness. A native of Canada, Lavoie had assumed his duties as public works commissioner Feb. He had previously served as Ward 6 alderman. He leaves his wife, Mrs. Helen Lavoie; three sisters and four brothers. A retired emptoyc of the Nash- ua Corporation, he was employed by the New Hampshire Sweep- stakes Commission and lived at 6 Fifield St. His death marks the third va- cancy on the four-man Board of Public Works in six months. The first vacancy occurred when long-time Commissioner Joseph Bouchard resigned in December for health reasons. He was re- placed by Kenneth Hartz. Causing the second vacancy ALBERT L. LAVOIE was the sudden death of.Com- missioner Conrad Bellavance sev- eral months ago. The aldermen named Robert Pillsbury to suc- ceed him.

The complaining parties say there once were two or three teachers on duty at the scene, patrolling the area and stalking errant youngsters who sneaked off behind a wall to smoke and otherwise misbehave. Now, they say, there's no teachers. When it was pointed out that there were no trash barrels in the vicinity, Schroeder acknowl- edged this remedy the and promised situation. But jredicted it would make no dif- ference. "They'll .still break bottles and he said. "They just don't use trash cans." One littering instance recalled by Nadeau resulted in some rather different tactics by po- lice. He said an officer caughl some youths in the act of lit- tering, marched them over to the.Lake.Street fire station to borrow some brooms, and stood by while the guilty party swept the debris up. No such luck this time, say Schroeder and Nadeau. A hope- ful note, however, was sounded by Schroeder. "I called Superintendent "Ed- mund he said.

Thieu Prepared to Accept Special Elections Proposal By TERENCE SMITH Niw York Tlmtt NIWI Siryici SAIGON President Nguyen Van Thieu is reliably reported to be prepared to accept special elections in South Viet- nam as part of a negotiated settlement of the war. Thieu. has privately advised western diplomats arid South Vietnamese political figures hat he could agree to special elections before the next nation- vide balloting scheduled for 971 if such elections are a prerequisite to peace. Special elections are one of he major demands set out by he Viet Cong in the 10-point bargaining position presented at he Paris talks May 8. He has ilready agreed that the Viet Cong could participate as party in national elections. Thieu is also understood be willing to consider the for- mation of a joint electoral com- mission that would include rep- resentatives of the National Liberation Front, the political arm of the Viet Cong, to su- pervise the elections. The Saigon government re- portedly regards such a com- mission as an acceptable alter- native to the Viet Cong's de- ihand for an interim coalition government, which Thieu op- poses. However, the government would insist on playing the ma- jor, role on any such commis- sion, according to South Viet- namese sources, and would de- mand that Viet Cong represent- ation be kept to a minority. The sources said that the commission would operate un- der guidelines agreed to in Pa- ris by both parties, but under the general supervision of the Saigon Ministry of I n t e r i o r. Most observers here believe the Viet Cong would reject any such restriction. As Thieu's advisers view it, the job of the commission would be to write a new set of electoral laws; to set a date for the elections and to super- vise the balloting. The belief is that this could be done within the framework of the present South Vietnamese constitution, or with only minor amend- ments. Cobleigh Move On Budget Group CONCORD, N. H.

Paratroopers of the U.S. 82nd Airborne Division jumped into Sainte-Mere-Eglise shortly after midnight. One soldier caught his elite on the church steeple and hung from it for hours, but by 4 a.m. the 100-man German garri- son had pulled out and the vil- lage was in American hands. Some of the old paratroopers, including the 82nd's commander at the time, Lt. Gen. James M. Gavin, were back in town to watch two planes drop dummies on the square in a simulated at- tack.

Nashua and Manchester Down- town authorize cities towns to levy special assessments to build and oper- ate parking facilities. The lawmakers failed to reach t decision on House Bill 708 after two votes and several quo- rum counts. .Rep. Armand Capistran, D Manchester, moved to postpone the bill indefinitely a motion which at one point lacked but one vote gaining the necessary 16S to put off consideration in- definitely. The House also delayed action on another proposal, HB 786, to allow cities to increase permit lees to help finance the parking plan. This measure was placed on the calendar for next Tues- day. The tabling of HB 708, came as a mild surprise as both bills lad been tagged "ought to pass" by the House Committee on Statutory Revision. The Telegraph's coverage of a dinner meeting in Manchester Wednesday night noted heavy support of both bills by Nashua md Queen City lawmakers. That session was sponsored by he two communities'-Chambers of Commerce and their Down- own Associations. HB 708 is an enabling act to allow a community to Impose special assessments In connec- tion with the construction and operation of parking garages.
