HEARS WASHINGTON (AP) Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield says he will not wage "intermittent warfare" Face President Nixon's Safeguard missile defense program if it wins approval in its big test this week. Although the issue of deploying the system will be decided Wednesday, the administration has more hurdles to face when Congress acts later in the year on appropriations to actually pay for the project. Opponents, including Mansfield, have pointed out they could have a new avenue to block the project in the funding measure. But Mansfield, in an interview, noted that the military construction appropriations subcommittee he heads will have jurisdiction over only a liny share o( the Safeguard budget for the next year. That would be the money to buy land for two initial' deployment and for 10 sites for later expansion. In later phases of Safeguard budgeting, however, increasing portions of the project would be in the military construction category. "I don't intend to carry on intermittent warfare on Mansfield said in an interview. "The Senate has got to decide." A rote is scheduled Wednesday on an amendment which would limit Safeguard work to research and development, barring for the current year for actual deployment. It would not cut the (799.1 million budgeted for the system. asaastroasssEszaarasaa Mayor Praises Nashua Firemen Mayor Dennis Sullivan today commended Nashua Srtfghltn ce battling the Lombertown blue last nljil.
