Dispute Over Wages Forest tells of an incident where some workers in a small factory on the outskirts of San- tiago sought higher wages. Man- agement refused, so the workmen had no recourse but to go on strike. Even after the'strike however, their demands were not met. The workers, being of Latin tempera- ment (the inflammatory promptly burned the factory to the ground, The local officials took a rather dim view of this performance, and had the workers arrested. They were put in jail, Jim says, and would probably still be there, had not the university students ..intervened. Upon hearing of the incident, the students Immediately'took up the cause of the workers and pro- ceeded to strike, march, picket, and make general nuisances of themselves.

No doubt ants in Nashua, (and the rest of New England for that were zooming hither and thither yesterday as the temperature soared to 95 de- grees. The heat wave that covered the East under an uncomfortable blanket, of moist tropical air brought with it a stifling rise in humidity, including damp clothes, sticky car upholstery and jammed doors. Nashua children flocked to swim areas in droves and many adults followed suit. Noel Trottier, director of the Park and Hecrea- tion Department, reports that the Centennial Pool was as were Field's Grove and the Pine Hill Pool next to. the air- port. Trottier said that the life- guard at the Centennial Pool counted 275 children in the water at one point. "There must have been several thousand children who went swim- ming in public areas Trottier said, "and there is a strong need for additional facili- ties. Not everyone can afford to get cooled off in a backyard pool."

The new treasurer collector pointed out that, the constitutional obligation of every member of a community is found in the deci- sion of the Supreme Court, in the case of -Edes vs. Boardman (58 N.H.: which states in part: "So much of his share as he (delinquent taxpayer) escapes the payment of, his neighbors arc compelled to pay for him. So much of his obligation as he avoids, he casts upon them. His payment of his share is as much.their con stitutional right 'as it is his con- stitutional duty. His non-perfor- mance of his duty is a violation of their rights." Gallant said, "this is what com- munity living is all about. Each man who demands his constitu- tional right must accept his con- stitutional duty. "If through error anyone re- ceives a summons that he shouldn't have, please bear with he added.

I low serve advance notice that I will not affix my signature to any bond or bonds to pay for said acquisition of W.' J. Nev- erett Realty Co. property situated on Garden Street." Sullivan asked City Solicitor Arthur 0. Gormley Jr. at the al- dermanic meeting Tuesday night ,f he could'-block the proposed purchase by withholding his sig- nature on bond certificates. Gormley said he would prefer to research the question before issiiiiig an opinion. A spokesman for the mayor's office said the opinion has nol been.received yet. Gormley could nol be reached for comment. Sullivan's veto of the bond reso> lutiph was overridden 10-2 by the abstention.

And another major item Which he House and Senate acted on during the long and hot session yesterday was the move to retain he head tax assessed on adults up to age 68. The Senate had voted to increase the tax to and to lower the exemption age o 66. The redislricting bill passed the House 141-125 and the Senate on a voice vote. Although the bill was attacked by some Democrats as a the House was told the two incumbents, Reps. Louis C. Wyman of Man- chester and James C. Cleveland of New London, approved of the compromise. The opposition was led by rep- resentatives from Salem, which will be transferred to the second district along with Merrimack Hudson, Pelham, Goffstown, Pem- broke and Allenstown. The representative from Brook- .ine, Webster Bridges (R) favored :he move, calling it an excellent compromise because only 300 votes now separate the two con- gressional districts. Representatives Jeanette Gelt and James Sayer, both of. Salem, opposed the plan. Sayer called it "gerrymandering" and he and Mrs. Gelt both agreed that Salem residents will be most unhappy with the plan. As for the head tax, it slays at but the age was lowered from 70 to 68. This means that resi- dents over 68 are exempt. Ob- servers said the change" will take away from the levy, which realized million in two years.
