TEN CENTS Second New School Okayed By Board By Claudette Durocher The Board of Education last night voted to start procedures for the con- struction of an elementary school in southwest Nash- ua the second elemen- tary school authorized for construction this year. Review Enrollment Board members took the step after gloomily reviewing the September, 1970 enrollment situ- ation for elementary schools in the city's growth areas. The new school would be built on the Main Dunstable Road (Route 111-A) near Gilson Hoad on city-owned land known as the Hall-Livingstone tract. Construction of a new elemen- tary school was recently author- ized lor the Birch Hill Drive area in northwest Nashua. Supt. of Schools Edmund M. Keefe said the board considered several alternatives to handle the cramped classroom situation ex- pected at the elementary level next year. One, he said, was to use every available space in crowded schools, including gymnasiums, for classroom purposes. Another was to rent the former St. Louis de Gonzague High School to provide temporary classrooms. And a third, he said, was to study the possibility of using some type of temporary classrooms. Crowded Conditions The elementary schools facing crowded conditions if their enroll- ment continues to climb, Keefe said, are Charlotte Avenue, Broad Street, Fairgrounds Elementary and New Searles Road. There might be two or three classrooms available for general use at the Sunset Heights School, he said, if new apartment houses under construction in the south end do not produce large num- bers of school age children. The impact of apartment con- struction in the north end of the city, Keefe said, is being felt at the Charlotte Avenue School. He said the possibility of dual sessions on the elementary level was not considered because the board does not believe such ses- sions are desirable for children in this age group. In other business, the board ac- resignation of Peter V. Chesnulevich, a mathematics teacher at the Spring Street Junior High School who has been with the school system for 36 years. He resigned, because of ill health. Also accepted was the resigna- tion -of Mrs. Sharon Kilmon, an English teacher at Nashua High who is moving out of town. Appointed were Mi's. Mary An- derson, who will teach mathe- matics at Spring Street Junior High; Jocelyne Marchesfault, busi- ness education and Helen Silver- man, English at Nashua High. At the suggestion of Mrs. Mar- garet Flynn the board voted to have Keefe appoint a committee of administrators and teachers to study the Engelhardt curriculum and facilities surveys to determine implementation priorities.

(Telegraphoto- Shalhoup) Scoufs Aid Santa Fund By MICHELE BUJOLD The Telegraph Santa Fund to- day stands at given a boost by the Main Street Method- ist Church Cub Scout Troop 6, Den 7, who saved their dues for a donation. Instead of putting the money in their treasury, the cubs voted to donate the sum to the Santa Fund, and help the area's needy, unfor- tunates and forgotten elderly during the holiday season. The money given to the Fund, and all other donations of toys, food and clothing, is given to the Salvation Army which acts as a clearing house for distribution to the needy. The Santa Fund total is behind last year's sum at this time. In 1968, a total of 276 fam- ilies were helped, representing over children. The help the Salvation Army provides includes a food order, a clothing order and a new toy for each child. Those seeking assistance can submit their applications to the Salvation Army starting Dec. 1 through 5 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Army's headquarters, 15 Temple St. Capt. Charles Sargent, officer in charge, said that on Dec. 3 and 4 the hours will be extended from 5 to 7 p.m. for those who are un- able to apply during the day. He noted that adults must apply as head of the household, and em- phasized that children should not be sent to apply. Children should be left at home if at all possible, he added. SANTA FUND Page 2 Stanford Official Is Seen As New Dartmouth President By DAVID E. ROSENBAUM New York Times News Service WASHINGTON-Dr. Richard W. Lyman, the vice president and provost of Stanford University, is the leading candidate to be the next president of Dartmouth Col- lege, according to sources both here and in Hanover, N.H. A final selection of a new presi- dent has not been made, but one source involved in the search said it was "80 or 90 per cent certain that Lyman is the man." Another source said that the search had been narrowed to two or three men, including Lyman, and that it appeared that the others declined the position. The current president of the col- lege, John Sloan Dickey, an- nounced in September, 1968, that he would resign as soon as a suc- cessor could be found. Lyman, reached by telephone at his home in California, said he had not been offered the job, although he acknowledged that FUEL OIL SAVE MOKE With LORDEN OIL CO. INC. SEBV1NO NASHUA AND 8UKBOUND1NG TOWNS 465-2267 there had been "feelers." Such feelers, he added, were "com- mon in the academic community when there is an opening like this one." The chairman of the board of trustees, Lloyd D. Brace, a Bos- ton banker, also said Lyman had not been offered the position. In Hanover, Prof. John H. Co- penhaver of the Biology Depart- ment, the head of the Faculty Committee that is advising the trustees on the selection of a new president, said the choice had been trimmed from "150 to 200 possible candidates to a few including Lyman. He said there had been lengthy discussions with Lyman, although no commitment had been made either by the college or Lyman. "Of course, we would not offer the position to anyone unless we were certain he would accept Copenhaver added. Lyman would not say whether he would accept the job if it were formally offered. It is being rumored that the new president will be announced at the Charter Day ceremonies Dec. 13, the 200th anniversary of the granting of the school's char- ter. But Copenhaver said it was now unlikely that that date could be met.

Cal- ley Jr. is accused of pulling the trigger or issuing the orders in the alleged murder of 109 Viet- namese civilians. But while the Pentagon was being vague on the specifics of its case, a man identified as a former soldier said in a televi- sion interview Monday night that he killed 10 to 15 of the Vietnamese under Galley's or- ders and that the officer also shot a group of villagers. The former Army private's name was given as Paul Meadlo, 22, of Terre Haute, Ind. And as the furor over the al- leged massacre grew, members of Congress began moving to- ward their own investigation of the incident. The Army said Monday Calley would be court martialed on charges of premeditated mur- der in the 1968 raid on the vil- lage of My Lai. The specifications were ex- -plieit -in saying that Calley did "with premeditation murder Oriental human beings by means of shooting them with a rifle." The six specifications listed a total of 109 victims in- cluding a two-year-old child. Pressed by newsmen, the Army finally issued a legalistic statement saying: "Whether Lt. Calley is alleged to be the actual perpetrator of each of the murders charged in the specification, or whether he is charged as an aider and abet- tor, or as one who counseled, commanded or procured the commission of the offenses would require a rather detailed discussion of the evidence in the case." Regulations prohibit this, the Army said. Nevertheless, the Army said that under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, Calley would be liable for conviction on charges of premeditated mur- der "under any of the three theories mentioned above." If convicted, the Waynesville, N.C., man would be sentenced either to death or life imprison- ment since the case is being treated as a capital offense, the Pentagon said. The court martial, to be. held at Ft. Benning, Ga., around the first of the year, may be un- precedented for the Army as far as numbers of alleged civilian murders are concerned. The South Vietnamese De- fense Ministry issued a state- ment last Saturday saying there had been no massacre in the raid; In the CBS television inter- view, Meadlo said he was a member of Calley's company at the time of the My Lai opera- tion. The man said both he and Calley participated in the kill- ings. Meadlo said U.S. soldiers gathered about 44 or 45 men, women and children in the cen- ter of the captured village. He quoted Calley as saying "You know what to do with "em, don't Meadlo said he thought Calley meant that the group should be guarded. The lieutenant re- Pfiricipals in Case Lt. Col Douglas Tucker, public information officer for Ft. Benning, Ga., tells newsman that Lt. William L. Calley Jr. will be tried by General Court Martial. (AP Wirephotos) turned later, however, and "he said, no, I want them Meadlo stated. Meadlo said Calley then stepped back 10 or 15 feet and started shooting. Meadlo said he then began to fire and killed 10 to 15 men, women and children. Meadlo said the next morning he received what he considers to be God's punishment for hii actions when he stepped on a mine and lost one of his legs. Calley's attorney, George W. Latimer, reacted by Meadlo's television appearance by com- menting "I don't know anything about his credibih'ty or the cir- cumstances of the interview." FUROR Page: Astronauts Healthy, Relaxed By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ABOARD USS HORNET (AP) Healthy and relaxed in their quarantine trailer, America's untouchable astronauts sailed toward Hawaii today while ea- ger scientists prepared to open their moon-rock treasure chests. Charles Conrad Jr., Richard F. Gordon Jr. and Alan L. Bean showed no ill effects from their 10-day lunar for a knot on Bean's head. He hit it during splashdown and appeared at the back win- dow of the quarantine quarters wearing a bandage. Otherwise the three were de- clared sound after initial physi- cal examinations. They arrive at Pearl Harbor about p.m. EST Friday, then fly nonstop to the Manned Spacecraft Houston, Tex. They will be slightly behind their two boxes of moon rocks, brought back from the Ocean of Storms. The treasure chests ar- rive today at Ellington Air Force Base near MSC. Officials said a C141 Starlifter tarrying the first box arrives at Ellington about p.m., with the second due about p.m. The schedule calls for both boxes to be out in a vacuum chamber atMSC's Lunar Re- ceiving Laboratory, the first box to be opened Wednesday morning and the second later the same day. Promoted by President Nixon from Navy commanders to cap- tains after their bull's-eye splashdown Monday, Conrad, Gordon and Bean had a rela- tively easy schedule today.
