(Telegraphoto-Harrigan) Surtax Extension Assured By JOE HALL WASHINGTON (AP) Ex- tension of the income tax sur- charge at a 5 per cent rate for the first half of 1970 now seems assured if the big tax reform bill becomes law this year. The Senate voted Tuesday, 49-28, to retain a provision ex- tending the surtax six months beyond its scheduled Dec. 31 ex- piration date. Although the Senate agreed to take no more votes until it re- turns next Monday from a Thanksgiving holiday, the de- bate continued today with a con- troversial oil depletion allow- ance amendment as the pending business. Sen- Allen J. Ellender, D-La., is sponsoring the amendment which would restore the 27V4 per cent depletion allowance which has been in effect more than 40 years. The House voted to cut this benefit to 20 per cent and the Senate Finance Committee set the figure at 23 per cent. Ellender's amendment will be the first item voted on next week unless it is displaced in some fashion. Extension of the surtax ap- peared to be settled by Tues- day's voting because the House also included such a provision in the version of the bill it passed Aug. 7. Thus the issue would not even be a question to be settled in the conference between the two branches to work out the fi- nal form of the legislation. However, if the Senate does not complete action on the bill in the 1969 session the surcharge extension might be reconsid- ered. The Senate vote was a victory for President Nixon who strong- ly supported the extension as part of his anti-inflation fight. The 10 per cent surtax expired June 30 this year but Congress voted a six-months extension to Dec. 31 at Nixon's urgent re- quest. He asked for the further -continuance at 5 per cent. Sen. Albert Gore, D-Tenn., set the stage for one of the biggest floor fights on the bill by intro- ducing Tuesday his amendment to increase the personal exemp- tion to from the present Gore said he would seek a vote on it at the earliest oppor- tunity next week. In a second vote Tuesday, the Senate trounced, 74-8, an amendment of Sen. Vance Ha- rtke, D-Ind., to take the revenue produced by the surtax in the first half of 1970 and allocate it to the states for education pur- poses. By Claudette Durocher The Board of Aldermen has overridden Mayor Den- nis 3. Sullivan's veto of a resolution to accept the supplementary 000 Carter donation for a new Nashua library and started procedures to raise the required match-' ing appropriations. 12-2 Vote With Aldermen Charles E. Theroux and Richard P. Joyce dissenting, the aldermen last night overrode the veto on a 12-2 vote. Alderman Robert A. Dion was away on a hunting trip and did not attend the session. He had previously voted to accept the offer. Prior to the vote, Sullivan reiterated his objections to the plans for the proposed cultural complex on Park-Court Streets; asked that the library project be divorced from the cultural complex proposal; and predict- ed the project would eventually cost the city more than mil- lion.' He also proposed that con- struction plans for the cultural complex be halted until a fed- eral urban renewal plan for the area is approved. Petition In Support Supporting the aldermen in their acceptance of the dona- tion and backing the Park Street site for the new library was a petition signed by about 750 persons and introduced un- der a rules suspension. Organizers of the petition said the petition represented three days of effort "by a hand- ful of the silent majority who want a library in the Park Street area now." Sullivan dismissed the peti- tion by saying the petitioners need to be more aware of the capital expenditures 1 y i ii g ahead. The next crucial step in the library controversy will come Monday when the finance com- mittee will consider two resolu- tions to raise to match the latest Carter offer. Approval Expected If they are okayed for pas- sage, as expected, the twin measures would be returned to (he.Board of Aldermen for ap- proval Dec. 9 and the board could override any mayoral veto at its final meeting Dec. 23.

Tran Van Don, an opposition leader who is chair- man of the Senate Defense Com- mittee, said today that he would send an investigating panel to Quangngai province to gather evidence of the alleged massacre of civilians by American troops in March, 1968. But President Nguyen Van Thieu's spokesman reaffirmed that as far as the government was concerned the case was closed. "We have classified it as an act of the spokesman, Hong Xuan Nha, said. Nha commented on the decis- ion by the United States army, following a preliminary investi- gation to try 1st it. William L. Galley Jr. on murder charges involving 109 civilians. David Mitchell faces a possible court-martial on charges of as- sault with intent to murder. A number of other present or former soldiers are under In- vestigation. In a communique last Saturday, the Saigon government dismissed the massacre charges as "totally false" and said that the dead in the village of Songmy were 125 Viet Cong and 20 civilians killed, all by aerial bombardment. He- ports have put the massacre toll as high as 567. The government acted in the face of a number of statements to the press by Vietnamese who said they had survived the slay- ings and by Americans who said they had observed them. Accord- ing to the accounts, the victims, among them women and children, died as a result of point-blank small-arms fire. Don, a retired general and former chief of staff and de- fense minister, said the govern- ment statement merely provided that Thieu was "the valet of the Americans, who are his sole sup- port." Nashua Man Held In Bank Robbery PAINTING PAPER HANGING Interior Exterior Professional Workmanship A. J. Archambeault Free Estimates 673-5165 TYNGSBORO Police here- last night arrested Michael Jo- zitis, 22, of Spit Brook Road, Nashua, and charged him with last Friday's armed robbery of the Merrimack Branch of the Second National Bank. Merrimack Police Chief Gran- ville Steams, in Tyngsboro work- ing with authorities there at the time of the arrest, said Jozitis did not resist.arrest. Stearns said no money was re- covered. But, he said, a car be- lieved used as a getaway vehicle in the theft was recovered by police and is now being in- vestigated. Jozitis was arraigned late Tues- day night before U. S. Commis- sioner Peter Bourque. He is being held in Nashua on. bail for a preliminary hearing Dec. 2 on a charge of bank rob- bery. The Merrimack bank was held up late Friday morning when a lone, armed bandit entered the small building, shoved a paper tog toward a teller, and told bank employes to fill it with money. When the robber fled in a blue Mustang, two women at. the out- door drive-in window gave chase in their car. Chief Stearns said they furnished police with a more detailed description of the car. Steams lauded Nashua and State Police for what he termed "their generous help in this case." 5% DAILY INTEREST COMPOUNDED QUARTERLY ON 90 DAY NOTICE ACCOUNTS AT NASHUA TRUST COMPANY CHARGE ACCOUNTS INVITED BANKAMER1CARD UNI-CARD MASTER CHARGE Stamps Nashua Wallpaper Co. 129 W.

'IU t By JOHN HARR1GAN Hudson Po- lice called "quick action" by a regular officer and an Auxil- iary Police Officer prevented injury to two families when flames swept the two story wooden building in which they occupied apartments. Thompson's Variety Store, lo- cated at the intersection of Kimball Hill Road and Route 111, was destroyed by fire last night. Hudson firemen battled the blaze for more than two hours in freezing temperatures. Chief Andrew Polak said the fire was first seen by Officer Warren Molkentine and Auxil- iary Officer Michael Russell while they were on routine pa- trol at about p.m. When the two officers noticed flames leaping on the roof of the store, they immediately ra- diod Nashua police, who in turn called the Hudson Fire Depart- ment. Meanwhile, Molkentine and Russell rushed to the side of the burning building. Polak said that when they arrived, the two noticed a parked pickup truck near the southeast corner of the structure. Between the trucTc and the building, Polak said, was a card board box. He said both the box and one fender of the truck were on fire when the officers arrived. The wall near the truck was also blazing. The two families living in apartments over the store were unable to get out by using the stairs because of smoke and' flames, Polak said- Mr. and Mrs. Steven Bouley and their two children, aged one and three years old; exited from their apartment by going1 out a window and onto the roof. The two children, were dropped down to Molkentine and Rus- HUDSOM FIRE Pagel Fighting Hudson Blaze Two families who lived in apartments above Thomp- son's Variety Store on the Kimball Hill Road were rescued by two Hudson police officers after they dis- covered flames in the wooden building. Thick smoke and icy streets made fighting the fire a hazardous effort for Hudson firemen. (Telegraphoto-Harrigan) meet again before it is dis- solved Dec. 31. The city has until May, 1970 tc- put up its matching share. But when pressed at the alder- manic meeting two weeks ago, Sullivan would not commit him- self to appropriating the re- quired funds next year. And with nine new aldermen to take office Jan. 1, there is no certainty that the matching appropriation would be made in 1970. If it is not approvea by the new board, the latest Carter gift will be lost by default. Eliot A. Carter, retired indus- trialist who offered the gift, thanked the aldermen for their action. He said the steps taken by the aldermen last night "should soon make a new library for Nashua a reality rather than an impossible dream." Additional Moves In addition to overriding the veto, the aldermen took these additional moves pertaining to the library: Transferred jurisdiction over the old post office on Court 'Street from the alder- manic lands and buildings com- mittee to the joint library build- ing committee which has al- ready opened bids for its demo- lition. The committee is to meet today to consider a demolition contract award. Gave a first reading and referred to the finance commit- tee a resolution assessing a to- tal of in damages for the taking of six properties in the Park Street area to make way for the new library. Read a letter from Rose- mary Kennett who asked the aldermen to grant a hearing to advocates of the Mill Pond 11- LIBRARY PLAN Page 2 Bay State Accidents Kill Three WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) At least three persons were killed and dozens of others injured today in a rash of auto acci- dents in central and western Massachusetts that followed an ice storm. Police from here westward to the New York state line began receiving reports of the pileups around 8 a.m., and the situation showed no improvement until late morning. Those killed died in separate in Brimfield, both on the Massachusetts Turn- the third in Hudson on Route 62. The turnpike accidents oc- curred at almost the same time and only a quarter-mile from one another, state police said. In one, the victim was Miss Christine Cahill, 19, of Long- meadow, a suburb of Spring- field. Miss Cahill, a passenger in a car driven by her mother, Mrs. Rosemary Cahill, was pro- nounced dead on arrival at a hos- pital in Palmer. Mrs. Cahill was admitted to the hospital. Details were lacking on the other accident in Brimfield. State police could confirm only that one person had been killed. In Hudson, one man was killed and another injured in a two-car collision during the ics storm. TONIGHT IN THE TELEGRAPH Christmas shop in comfort these cold, wet winter days nights.
