Sullivan said he has attempt- ed to be truly, representative of the average voter during his four years In office. The city has no choice but to embrace a certain amount of expenditure through bonding, he said, but that "does not mean that we should accept every spending proposal brought before the aldermanic board.

(AP) Disc. Atty. Ed- mund Dinis says he will proceed plans for an inquest into the death of Mary Jo Kopechne wheth- er or not a judge permits exhumation of her body for an autopsy. Delays Derision Judge Bernard C. Brominski of Common Pleas Court re- served judgment Tuesday after a two-day hearing on a petition by the Massachusetts official to have the body disinterred for a postmortem examination. Dinis had contended that sn autopsy was needed to pin down the cause of the death of the 28- year-old secretary whose body Was found July H in Sen. Ed- ward M. Kennedy's submerged car. Dr. Donald R. Mills, associ- ate medical examiner of county, Mass., ruled drowned The final court session Includ- ed a replay of a taped recording of the senator's voice giving his version, on national television July 25, of circumstances sur- rounding the girl's death on Chappaquiddick Island in the Martha's Vineyard resort area Massachusetts. Brominski gave no Indication he would hand down his verdict. Court sources said it was unlikely to come until after a Nov. 4 election in which' Brominski is seeking a second 10-year term on the bench. "I don't think we'll go any further on appeal il we Dinis said after adjournment of the hearing. "I have no complaints. I'm satisfied that we did the best we could, that we were treated fair- ly here and thai we will abide ,by the decisioa.'V Dinis coniended at the bear- Ing that the condition of Miss Kopechne's body wben it was removed from tte senator's car, submerged in a tidal pond after plunging off narrow Dyke Bridge, "may or may not have been with death by drowning." There was conflicting testimo- ny by pathologists on whether en autopsy now would show whether the girl died of some cause other than drowning. A Dinis assistant, in cross- examining witnesses, asked whether the cause of death might have been manual stran- gulation or a skull fracture. Kennedy, the Massachusetts. Democratic senator, did not at- tend the hearing. He was in Brussels for a meeting of the North Atlantic Assembly. Kennedy's voice on the tape recording went into the court record over the vigorous objec- tion of attorneys for Mr. and Mrs. Joseph A. Kopechne, who said they were "unalterably op- posed" to (ie disturb- ing of (heir daughter's grave in nearby Larksville.

Walter Peterson Is using his. legal counsel a position Pappagi- anis says Is unconstitutional to undermine the authority ol the attorney general's office. Pappagianis, a Democrat, commented in a letter to the Republican governor concerning their dispute over possible aid to New Hampshire residents embroiled ia a tax dispute with Maine. Neither Peterson nor his legal counsel, Warren Rudman, was available for comment iminedi- Pappagianis said he has is- sued three opinions saying it is not the duty of the attorney general, governor or council, to intervene in dispute of whether Maine's income tax can be collected from New Hamp- shire workers at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. Rodmaa Used He said the Issue Is that Rud- man, counsel to the governor, .is being 'used by Peterson to undermine the constitutional au- thority of the attorney general. Once again, Pappagianis said he would be violating his oath PAPPAGJANIS of office to give an opinion on the tax fight ie said that as an attorney, and not the state's top legal officer, ie thinks "Maine may impose its income tax on New Hamp- shire residents who are em- ployed" at the yard.

By MICHELE BUJOLD The Board of Aldermen will be asked next Tuesday night to ap- propriate to assist the Na- shua Health Department's city- wide German Measles immuniza- tion program, slated to begin this Friday. Phillip V. Hurley, director of the Nashua Board of Health, said that present plans call for a six- team coverage of public schools on Friday, grades 1 through 6. "Depending on the volume of con- sent slip returns ia the public schools, some of the parochial schools may be started on the same said Hurley. Other parochial schools and kindergartens will be covered dur- ing the following weeks, ne said. After all school and kindergarten- nursery school pupils have been Immunized, a final mass clinic win be held at the Health De- partment for ages 1 5, and those school pupils who missed the first program. Consent Needed In order to be immunized, each child must have a consent slip signed by their parent or guar- dian. Immunization teams win be made up of Health Department nurses, School Department nurses, Good Cheer Society nurses and voJunteer nurses. Dr. Sidney Curelop, Chairman of the Health Department, and Dr. Roger Diorme are the pro- gram physicians. Hurley said, "It is of great importance to Na- shua that all children, ages 1 to 11, be immunized except those specifically ineligible as noted on the consent Hurley stated. German Measles, is a disease that can cause birth defects and mental retardation in infants whose mothers contract the disease whfle pregnant Most cases of rubella occur in school age children, thus immunization of these children reduces the like- lihood of mothers becoming in- fected. Rubella is a mild disease in children and should not be con- fused with Measles sometimes called "Regular Mea- which is a serious disease. United States Public Health Of- ficials-have predicted that (he country Is moving into another German Measles epidemic cycle. The new vaccine is available to all children except those sensitive to chicken or duck, chicken or duck eggs or feathers, or to neo- mycin. A child should not be im- muniied during a time be has a cold, fever, respiratory illness or active infection. It Is recommend- ed that rubella vaccination be separated by at least one month from administration of other live virus vaccines. Hurley said that the parents of children in one of these cate- gories should confer with their private Physician about immuni- zation for these children. Risks Noted Approximately 80 per cent of the cases of German Measles oc- cur in children ages 1 through 14, but as high as 20 per cent of the young adult population are at risk, Hurley pointed out "In this group are the young mothers whose health and unborn child the vaccine is designed to pro- tect" Hurley said. He noted that because of the possible risk to the developing baJy, the vaccine cannot be given to the mother. he said, must protect her from con- tact with the disease by keeping it out of the pre-school and school age population where it spreads rapidly and is often brought into the borne by IJie young school child."

In his own opinion, Pappagi- anis said, the governor's use of such a position is "unconstitu- lional, violates the statutes of New Hampshire, contravenes legislative intent and public po- licy, and creates a precedent that undermines public confi- dence and respect for the law." He noted that there is provi- sion for a governor to have an attorney who advises him on legislative matters in the years the legislature meets but that the job crtated for Rudman "compensated with public funds strikes at the vitals of our form of government."
