Minutes after the plane land- ed at Damascus, an explosion ripped through the cockpit heav- ily damaging the front end of the plane. The 103 passengers and crevr of 12 had already left moments earlier and escaped injury.

So said Donald C. Caldcrwood, president of the pri- vate firm, in analyzing today's conditions. He said: "The Penrichuck's ponds are starting to drop .but there is no need (o worry. There ij an ample supply." He reported that the average daily use this month between H and 12 million gallons. Weather records provided by the Pennichuck Pumping Station indicated that this month has been ore of the warmest In re- cent years. Temperatures have soared to SO on the 21th and JI on the 25th, while yesterday's high reading was 87. A look at the weather charts reveals that there were ti days when tie mercury hit 80 and higher. There has been no substantial here since Aug. when 2.H Inches were registered. As of today, the total for the month comes lo inches. No Ban Considered CaWerwcod said the firm was not considering another ban- such as imposed on Ihe city June IMS when a halt was ordered on all sprinkling of lawns and gardens. This situation developed from a record use of water over sev- eral days when temperatures reached high levels. The June ban was not a result of a water shortage, but iiuieaU was an outgrowth of a distribution problem whereby it was difficult to -cope with record demands upon the system. For Instance, on June 12, usage sou-ed to 15 million gallons with a rate of M million gallons be- tween S p. m., and 9. Figured an- nually, the daily average use to- tals seven million gallons. At the time of the short-lived ban, Calderwood said fn part: "Actually, we were pumping 18 million gallons, with the remain- der coming from distribution res- ervoirs at Columbus Avenue and Orchard Heights. We have plenty of water, but we cannot force it through our distribution system at this excessive rate." The private firm was founded in 1852 to provide running water for the protection of the health and property of Nashuans. The Nashville Aqueduct was the name of the original water company when it was estabHshed (o serve the towns of Nashville and Nashua. The name was changed In 1853 to the present name when the towns united. Coming soon to Nashua.Trust MASTER CHARGE The Interbank Card Member.

Initial reports indicat- :d only light contact. Elsewhere across South Viet- nam, there was Kllle activity. U.S. Headquarters said reports showed action overnight was ightest in three weeks. An evening communique from ].S. headquarters said there were nine enemy rocket and mortar attacks overnight, the owest number since Aug. 10. Fife Americans were reported wounded. Allied intelligence analysts said they are ejrpecting'another a series of ridespread attacks, in the next 'ew days !o coincide with North Independence Day Sept. 5. Placed On Alert In anticipation of increased enemy activity, South Viet- namese troops and police went en'full alert at noon today in Saigon and 11 provinces around the city. The allied counter-offensive was launched just after day- break. Associated Press correspond- ent Richard Pylc reported from Marine headquarters at Da Nang that about Marines and South Vietnamese infantry- men moved into the Iliep Due Valley between the Laotian bor- der and South Vietnam's popu- lous coastal lowlands 31 miles southwest of Da Nang. The only significant action re- ported Friday was what ap- peared (o be a small North Viet- namese attack on a Marine night bivouac. Two Marines and two North Vietnamese soldiers were reported killed and six Afarines were reported wound- ed. Heavy fighting through 100- plus degree temperatures has centered in the region for the past two weeks, taking a heavy toll of American dead and wounded. By conservative count, at least 71 Americans are known dead and 322 wounded. Some in- fantry companies are operating with Jess than 100 men, roughly 50 per cent under their normal strength. Reds Suffer Losses Allied commanders claim ths North Vietnam's 2nd Division already has lost up to men under a daily barrage of Ameri- can bombs, napalm and artil-' lery shells. Since launching attacks on American patrol bases in tha valley three weeks ago, Ihs North Vietnamese now appear to have taken up a defensive posture and are said to be re- treating to old hideaways on high ground. The main target of the Allied task force is the center hill, a peak called Deo Ram by the Vietnamese arid Hill Ml on military maps. Marines lost 13 men killed and 42 wounded in daylong fighting on the slopes of this hill Thursday. Field reports indicated thai Ihe task force did not plan a fronlal assault on (he hill.
