Once the interviews are com- pleted, the committee will re- port its recommendations to the joint committee which will ac- lually hire the architect and building consultant During the meeting, several aldermen pressed Board of Ed- ucation members to furnish the committee with some type of report presenting facts and fig- ures for its selection of the Yudicli site.

Cerier made a motion toward the end of the session to require the Board of Education lo submit a memorandum to the joint com- mittee detailing its reasons for choosing the Yudicki site.

The Board agreed to poslpone any decision until its July 22 meeting, but did not rule out the possibility of calling a special School District meeting next month on the problem.

At the March School meeting, Hudson voters approved the terms of the contract, and til rne Pact April 2, Pelham residents also approved it after much discussion.

The House Monday passed a resolution to finish its work at 5 p.m. today. But (he rift causing strained eelings between the House and Senate extended even lo ad-oumment lime Ihe resolu-ion promptly was tabled when t reached the Senate. The maneuver left the way open for the senators to take the resolution from the table and act on it today or lo leave it where it Is and not be bound ij a deadline for adjournment. Animosity between the mem-xrs of the two chambers surfaced during the afternoon 'in debate over a conference com-Jiiltee'i report on Ihe mil-ion capital improvements budget. House Speaker Marshall Cob-leigh, R-Nashua, criticized the senators for sending to the lower chamber provisions which House members already rejected. "They're telling us no mailer liow many times we kill a bill we'll have (o conlinue (o lake it tip." Applauding House members gave Cobleigh a 131-7 vote of confidence and sent to the Senate a resolution warning the senators the House would Delayed accept mailers it previously had killed. The rift erupted over a request that the conference com-mittce studying the budget bi allowed to take up the previous-y killed measures later passed n the Senate as amendments to he budget.
