Prunier. In favor were John T. Dimtsios, Herbert E. Miller, Paul G. April, Dr. N. John Fontana, Dr. J. Gerard Levesque, Mrs. Jean Wallin and Dr. Norman W. Crisp, ward president. Mrs. Margaret Flynn abstained because her husband, Planner Fred D. MeCutchen las estimated it would cost the city about to acquire the ract. Municipal ownership of the Yudicki site was pne reason advanced in its favor by those who advocated building the high school here.

Leonard, also a state senator, said there was a bill in the Senate now which will make it mandatory for municipalities to provide ransportation for students .up to 18 years of age. He said passage was certain and the city should carefully weigh its site selection in terms of the future effects of the bill. Mrs. Wallin, also a state representative emphasized the bill does not state that transportation must be furnished without charge lo students. It was noted that several communities charge high schoolers for transportation, including Portsmouth.

The governor said he thought the legacy tax has a "fighting chance" of approval in the Senate.

Informed sources said today that Thieu was trying to get solid governmental and military backing for the proposal before it is put before the Viet Cong. The man mentioned to represent the government on Joint t Cong Repr commission is Duong Van Minh the popular general who led the 1963 overthrow of President Ngo Dinh Diem. Minh returned to South Vietnam from political exile last year but has stayed out of the limelight. Government and American sources would riot comment on the report. Usually reliable informants said Thieu was not likely to disclose his plan but was mainly concerned with insuring support from his generals, who are suspicious of any dealings with the Viet Cong. Thieu reportedly told President Nixon during their esentatives talks June 8 that he would press the Viet Cong delegation in Par-is to discuss election procedures. His moves in Saigon were seen as a preliminary Informants said the South Vietnamese president wants such talks with the Viet Cong to be secret and might refuse to discuss the issue at the peace table or in public. Prior agreement within the South Vietnamese government on a specific proposal would strengthen the government delegation's position in Paris, and Thieu evidently is striving for Joint Meeting Asked to Elect .avoie Successor At their meeting Tuesday night, ie aldermen will receive a re-uest from the Board of Public forks for a joint convention to lect a new public works com-nissioner.

But they indicated that the two-power conversations and the four-power talks at the United Nations would continue. Secretary of State William P. Rogers received the Soviet its on Mi last Tuesday to a comprehensive proposal submitted by the U.S. on May 26. Particular importance was attached to the. Russian note since it came after detailed consultations in Cairo between the Soviet Foreign Minister, Andrei A. Gromyko, and Egyptian President Carnal Abdel Nasser. State Department officials characterized the Soviet response as carefully worded holding operation, apparently designed neither to break off the international efforts toward deriving a Over I d-East S< formula nor to signal any significant narrowing of the gap that has separated Israel and the Arab states since the aftermath of the six-day war of June, 1967. Reflecting the lack of forward movement in the latest exchange between the two powers, President Nixon conceded at his news conference last night, "I would have to admit that I see very little defusing" of the tensions in the Middle East. Neither the Soviet note nor the American proposal has been ettlement public. The central principles, which the U.S. asked the Russians and the Arabs to accept, were: should be restored through a comprehensive accord in one package, not in phases.
