Sites For 'Super' School Studied Planning Board Backs Park Area By ClAUDETTE DUKOCIIER With the site selection for the proposed "super" high school approaching the decision stage, the Planning Board is recom- mending that the Board of Education's preferred site for the school be consid- ered as a secondary choice. No Formal Vote Though the school board has not yet formally voted on a site, its discussions have been geared to the 120-aci'e Yudicki Farm on the Main Dunstable Road as the construction high school. site for the new a report presented to the school building committee In joint last night; however, the Planning Board advanced a 62.4 acre tract abutting the proposed mill canal park system as a better site for ie school. This board's second choice is the Yudicki Farm. Other Sites Considered In its analysis of alternate high school sites, the Planning Board considered two other sites, for a otal of four. The other two sites were North Common, the 35 acres on Am- herst Street now occupied by Hoi- man Stadium and Centennial Pool, arid the 54-acre Horse Pond site off Broad'Street. 'But these two sites were elimi- nated from consideration because hey do not meet state acreage requirements for a school with a projected enrollment of stii- lents. In presenting the Planning Soard's site analysis report, City Planner Fred D. MeCutchen said "if it were not for a serious A ficiency in acreage, this stuc would clearly reveal that th North Common site offers th city the best possible- location fo a new high school." Most of the site factors ah; Ized support this conclusion, h said. he noted, the stai Board of Education in a lette made part of the report, cites th North Common site as being un satisfactory from the standpoin of its limited size. "The Horse Pond site also su fers from space limitations whic would handicap an architect i developing an optimum site pla for a school of ultimately McCutchen stated. Depressed Area Bounded by Bedford Dublin Avenue, Stbney Stree Broo Road and the federal Fish Hatch ery, the Horse Pond site is a gen erally depressed area due to ex cavation which has resulted formation of a pond at its center Imaginative design and ful utilization of the available Ian could overcome terrain irregu larities, McCutchen said, but th other site factors analyzed do no prove outstanding enough to war rant this attempt. The site analysis study, accord ing to McCutchen, left little doubt that the Yudicki site offers an at ractive and spacious site for th design of a large high school. Great weight was given to thi aspect in the scoring process, h said, which saw the site achievinL the only perfect score for acre- age size.

New York Times New! Sirvlci WASHINGTON The pros lect of a direct confrontation jetween Congress and the Su- ireme Court was raised today )y the Court's decision that the louse of Representatives had mproperly excluded Rep. Adam Clayton Powell. Democratic house leaders met privately to study the court's lengthy opinion and its potential impact on congres- sional prerogative. Asked if he 'oresaw a clash with the Court on its decision, Speaker Tohn 'I'm all." W. McCormack replied: not getting into that at But Rep. Gerald R. Ford, the -louse Republican leader, ex- pressed doubt that the House vould be willing to return to 'owell the in salary that ic lost along with his seal. Such a refusal could constitute repudiation of the court de- ision. The Supreme Court did not actually order the House to give Powell his back salary, lassing this duty back to the owcr court, .but it left no doubt hat, under Hie ruling, the New York Congressman had the money coming to him. The reaction in the House was not all adverse. A number of he Representatives who had ,'oled against excluding Powell praised the Court decision as ustifying their position that the iction had been improper in the 'irst place. Others tried to brush aside be problem of how or whether he Harlem Congressman would reclaim salary as not in- .olving any collision with the Supremo Court. Rep. Emanuel Celler of New York, chairman of the House Jidiciary Commit- tee, said of the court decision: "Its essence is that he satis- fied the constitutional qualifica- tions for admission. That is the guts of the decision. The rest is housekeeping, on matters of salary and so on." The decision did not appear to have any effect on Powell's seniority. Before his exclusion, he had been chairman of the House Education and Lab d r Committee; after he was, re- elected to his old vacant seat, he went' to the bottom of the committee's seniority list. House members predicted, however, that Powell would probably demand his ship back and threaten, to go to court again if it were not restored. Moratorium Urged On Missile Tests By JOHN W. FINNEY Ntw York TdlMS Nlwt ServWt WASHINGTON The admin- istration has been urged by a House Republican leader and a group of moderate Republicans in the Senate to impose a mora- torium on the testing of multiple missile warheads while it seeks an arms control agreement with the Soviet Union.
