Nashua Telegraph (Newspaper) - October 21, 1969, Nashua, New Hampshire Scoff Defends Dissent Agnew Rebuked For 'Name Calling' HUGH SCOTT By WALTER R. MEARS WASHINGTON (AP) Sen- ale Republican Leader Hugh Scot I, rebuking Vice President Spiro T. Agnew without naming him, has called for tolerance and an end to "name calling and accusation" in (he debate over Vietnam. Scott, in his most evident dis- agreement with the White House since his election as the GOP's Senate leader a month ago, said "the administration must accept the sincere Intent of this debate and ol demonstra- tions" as a phenomenon of free- dom snd a product of anguish over the war. The Pennsylvania senator said such protests "will not be stifled or talked down." Hears Opponents In New York, Secretary of Stale William P. Rogers said the administration has "listened with respect" to opponents of the war. "Our President Is striving for peace in wayi that only the man in that office Rogers said at the Council of Churches an- nual "Family of Man" awards dinner. While there were some "un- pleasant aspects" of last Wednesday's demonstrations, Rogers said, "on (he whole, it seemed (o me that a great many of the demonstrators wished principally to register dramatic but dignified expres- sion of their deep concern for peace in Vietnam. And we lis- tened to these voices with re- we, too, have a dee? concern for peace in Viet- nam." And the Republican national chairman, declaring flatly that President Nixon is "bringing our involvement in Vietnam to an accused administra- tion critics of playing politics over policy. Rep. Rogers C. B. Morton of Maryland dismissed Nixon crit- ics as "sound officers." Scott's written statement, vol- unteered 5ate Monday, did not mention Agnew. But a source close to the GOP leader made clear the statement wai prompted by Agnew's Sunday attack on the war protest move- ment.

N.H. 28 PASES Priet TEN CENTS Boards Back Fluoridation For Nashua By CLAUDETTE DUKOCHER Fluoridation of the Nashua water system a proposal which will be up for voter approval on the Nov. 4 munic- ipal ballot has received the endorsement of the local Board of Health and the Nashua Dental Society. Endorses Plan In a statement today, Dr. Sid- ney Curelop, chairman of the Board of Health, said the three- man board unanimously agreed to endorse fluoridation at a meet- ing June 24. And meeting last night, the Nashua Dental Society, repre- senting about 33 area dentists, unanimously went on record as favoring fluoridation and urging its approval Nov. 4. Other membors'of the Board cf Health, aside from Dr. Curelop, include Dr. Roger R. Dionne and Roland G. Lebel, a former alder- man. Joining the board in favoring fluoridation was Phillip V. Hur- ley, director of the health depart; ment. _ "All the of the Board of Health Curelop said, "that a stand against Cuon- dation is untenable in the face of proven medical, dental and public health knowledge." Hurley commented that "as director of the city's health de- partment, I fed it is important for people to know that fluorida- lion of the city's water supply can reduce dental decay in children, by as much as 60 per cent. "Furthermore, it has been dem- he continued, "that the cost of dental care for children in non-fluoridated communities is more than double the cost of dental care for children in fluori- dated communities." Congress Urged In a resolution approved by the American DerM Association, Hur- ley pointed out, Congress was urged to consider the establish- ment of priorities favoring stale and local communities having supplies adjusted to the optimum fluoride level when authorizing federal funds for denial services in comprehensive health care pro- grams. This organization which repre- sents the country's dentists, Hur- ley added, has continuously sup- ported fluoridation since its 103rd annual meeting held in 1962. "The list of other medical, dental, health and scientific or- ganizations supporting controlled fluoridation within standardized limits through either addition or removal of fluorides according to the composition of local water supplies is both long and im- the health director said. "Nearly 30 years of experience has documented its effectiveness and failed to show cause for the fears expressed by opponents of the program." Dr. Arthur McGonagle, presl- of the Nasboa Dental Soci- ety, conducted last night's meet- ing which was attended by 29 dentists. He anounced the Ohio Legu- ture has approved a bill calling for all water systems serving or more persons to be fluoridated by Jan. 1, 19J1. The bill, he said, also requires that water systems serving from to persons must be fluoridated by Jan. 1, 1972. Ohio, he said, thus becomes the seventh state in the past five years to adopt fhxmdation legis- lation. Dr. Edward FisJcheffi spoke for five Nashua dentists who attend- ed the recent American D en t a I Association annual meeting in New York Cily. At the meeting, he said, the association urged Congress to consider the establishment of pri- orities favoring states and communities having fluoridated water systems when authorizing federal funds for dental sen-ices. 2 Gunmen RobMarket In Nashua Nashua police today are intensifying their' investigation of an armed robbery at Jean's Foodland on Amherst Street. 3 amount of cash was stolen, according to Chief Paul J.

LAMB WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) Dist. Ally. Edmund Dinis look the witness stand today to contradict earlier testimony by an associate medical examiner who said Dinis had told him he did not think an autopsy on the body of Mary Jo Kopechne was necessary. Dinis said he had first sought an autopsy on July 20, one day after the young woman's body was recovered from Sen. Ed- ward M.

By that time, Dinis said, Miss Kopechne's body already had been flown to Pennsylvania for burial in nearby LarksviUe. Dinis testified before Judge Bernard C. Brominski of Com- mon Pleas Court in the second day of a hearing on peti- tion to have the body of the 28- year-old secretary exhumed for an autopsy. He says an autopsy is vital to an inquest he has scheduled Mo her death. Dr. Donald R. Mills, associate medical examiner for Dukes County, Mass., testified Monday about a telephone conversation he had with Dinis "on Thurs- day, July 24 or thereabouts." Mills quoted Dinis as saying: "Mills, you're quite sure of FUEL OIL SAVE MORE With LORDEN OIL CO.

Pearl St. 882-WS1 Moru thru Sat M Open Than, 'tfl I with the administration's latest top-level review of Vietnam pol- icy, seemed to suggest a, new tone of cautious optimism among senators who had been the most opposed to the war's escalation. Discount Reports At the same time, however, authoritative sources tended to discount the weekend flurry ot reports that Nixon may use his scheduled speech on Vietnam on Nov. 3 to make a dramatic ges- ture, such as announcing a uni- lateral cease-fire or a major withdrawal of U.S. combat troops from Southeast Asia. White House press secretary, Ronald L. Ziegler, commenting on the reports, said that "There be no official or authorized discussion about the President's Nov. 3 speech from the White House, the State Department or the Defense Department." An indication that Nixon plans to advance gradually in bring- ing an end to the hostilities, without being stampeded by the anti-war sentiment in the coun- try, was seen in Ziegler's re- mark that the President had outlined his approach in the past notably in his May 14 speech urging active negotia- tions with the Communists in Paris and that "he is follow- ing this course of action." While there were no actual signs that Nixon or any of his associates had taken the Demo- cratic leaders into the White House's trust in mapping the fa- lure strategy, considerable at- tention was given here to the new credit of confidence that Mansfield and particularly Ful- bright appeared to be granting (he President. Speaking to the Senate, the Montana Democrat said recog- nition should be given Nixon for de-escalating the war, and he ex- pressed the hope that the nation would support him in this course. This, he said, would en- J. W. FULBRIGHT courage the President to take additional steps toward a "re- sponsible settlement" of the war.

Fulbright remarked that where the U.S. Air Force and military combat advisers are cooperating with the Royal Laotian Army in fighting Communist Pathet Lao forces, "is closely tied to the war in Vietnam." He said "I believe the Presi- dent's own statement that he it trying to wind down the war in Vietnam and I assume that hil Nov. 3 speech will provide fur- ther evidence of his determina- tion to liquidate the war." "If that he said, Laotian thing Is not likely to develop." Fulbright said the current hearings on Laos and, pre- sumably, the Vietnam hearing! scheduled to open on Oct. 27 reveal "how lacking in Laotian situation before a spa- justification" are the U.S. poll cial Senate subcommittee cies in Southeast Asia. Hurricane Laurie Moves Sluggishly NEW ORLEANS, La. (AP) Gale force winds from 100-mile- an-hour Hurricane Laurie began whipping Louisiana's offshore waters near the mouth of the Mississippi River today. The powerful storm lost for- ward speed during the morning as it moved sluggishly through the Gulf of Mexico. The New Or- leans Weather Bureau said Lau- rie would have a slow and errat- ic movement today but that a drift toward the northeast was indicated. At 10 a.m. the New Orleans Weather Bureau located Laurie at about 250 miles south of New Orleans. The Weather Bureau's 10 a.m. advisory said Laurie was poking along at about five miles per hour with a predicted slow and erratic movement during the day. Thousands of residents along Louisiana's vulnerable coast fled inland for fear of being trapped in a danger zone. If Laurie, the eighth hurri- cane of the season, curved more to the northeast, she could move onto Mississippi's coast, devas- tated by Hurricane Camille two months ago, or even farther east to Alabama or Florida.
