Relatives of the woman, who Santa Fund Gifts Aid Areas Needy By MICHELE BUJOLD With the Thanksgiving holiday now behind us, the.thoughts of both young and old alike turn to Christmas with ils merry par- ties and hearty good wishes, its bejeweled trees decked out in holiday finery and resplendent with multi-colored packages, and the joyful church services filled with holiday worshippers. But there are those among us who do not look forward to Christmas. In.fact, many antici- pate the holiday season with dread, because it will mean no new toys 'for the children, no Christmas dinner, and an inept explanation 'of why Santa Claus forgot this, family, and visited so many others. These are the.families the Tele- graph .Santa Fund, working through the Salvation Army, seeks to.help during the holiday season. Often what the Salvation Army provides is Christmas. The Army helps the unfortunate, the families in which the father has taken ill and there is no source of in- come, or where a family has NASHUA BABYSITTING SERVICE 24 Hr. 882-2627 Service Look in your Yellow Pages been deserted by the father; or where the father has been laid off from his job. Even though these families re- ceive welfare checks, the money goes for the bare necessities, and there is nothing left for Christ- mas. Perhaps your Christmas could be made a little brighter by helping those whose luck is down. The Santa Fund turns over all proceeds to the Salvation Army to help the needy throughout the holiday season. The smile of a child receiving a new toy and a stockingful of Christmas treats provided through the Santa Fund because her parents could not afford them sweeter than any candy. The light shining in the eyes of the ill and the Salvation Army remembered brighter than the lights twinkling on the tree. The sincere "Merry Christmas and God bless you" of Salvation Army officers who open the doors of their centers to the lonely and is a warmer welcome than the biggest holly wreath. And, when all the decorations are packed away, the faith, hope and love than comes of a sharing with others remains to strengthen for the new year.

Hudson Fire Chief Oscar Campbell said he was working on a theory that the fire start- ed in the cellar from an elec- trical short circuit. He said the flames had worked their way through two floors from the cellar when firemen arrived.' But, he said, the 28 men of the volunteer depart- ment who responded to the blaze managed to stop the flames before they could spread to the rest of the house. Chief Campbell said he had no estimate of damage yet. But, he said, the .house in general suffered "pretty heavy smoke and water damage." Five trucks from Hudson re- sponded to the call. Chief Campbell said his men were at the scene for about one and one-half hours. Campbell said the flames had eaten through the floor beneath the woman's bed when she was removed from the building.

Process Numbers There will be a big board with numbers and dates being posted one by one; a hot glare of- lights; standing men and wom- en, intently jotting down every announcement and handing the notes to scurrying messengers- It may look more like a hot day in the stock exchange than a December night at Selective Service. The numbers and dates will be one telling hundreds, or thousands, of men throughout the country their chances of being drafted in 1970. Just outside Selective Serv- ice's jammed conference room where the drawing takes place will be a glass case in the lobby, containing a souvenir from the past.

Claire Veilleux, 13, daughter of Joseph F. Veilleux, of 4 Cote Ave., is listed in "poor" condition in the intensive care unit. A hospital spokesman said she suffered a fractured skull and pelvis and in- ternal injuries. The injuries resulted from an accident involving a pick-up truck driven by Romeo Labrie, 17, of 5 Pacific Boulevard. Police, said the" girl was walking along the New Dunstable Road near Liberty Street when the accident oc- curred. Authorities 'said the girl had been visiting a friend and was re- turning home. She was taken to the hospital by police ambulance. used for the first draft lotteries in World War I and again in World War II. In the lottery drawings of World War II this jar held little capsules containing draft registration numbers. Sample capsules are still in the jar; green and pink plastic with metal neds, like little lip- stick tubes, for 1940 and 1941; blue ones for 1942, made entire- ly of bit of metal was being saved by then for war production. Soon every available man was needed, too, and there was no point to a lottery any more. It was abaondoned, even during the low-draft peacetime years, until President Nixon revived the it "random Wednesday by signing a law, an executive or- der, and a proclamation of to- night's drawing, Even before Nixon signed the lottery into law, Lt.

Estabrook Jr., 25, of Manches- ter, and a former town resident, died early Sunday morning after his car failed to negotiate a sharp curve on Route 3-A Police Chief David A. Camp- bell said Estabrook was driving north at a.m. when his convertible veered off a curve about a quarter of a mile from the Hudson-Litchfield line. The car struck several signs, he said, hit a Public Service Co. guide pole and rolled over, pin- ning Estabrook beneath it. Campbell said the car traveled 378 feet before it came to a halt.

Burial will be in Litch- field. Senate Tackles Tax Reform Plan Oil, Gas Depletion Allowance Tested By JOE HALL WASHINGTON (AP) A sen- ior Republican senator says he is confident efforts to retain the per cent oil and gas deple- tion allowance will fail in a tax reform-minded Senate. Sen. John J. Williams, R-Del., speaking in advance of today's scheduled vote, predicted the Senate would approve either the 23 per cent figure favored by a Senate committee or the 20 per cent benefit contained in the House-passed tax reform bill under debate. "This is the symbol of tax re- said Williams, senior GOP member of the Senate Fi- nance Committee. "If we don't cut the allowance, the country will not think we are serious about reform." Failure to make some cut probably would encourage spe- cial interests to try to eliminate or weaken other major provi- sions in the tax reform bill, Wil- liams said. Favors Retention Sen. Allen J. Eliender, D-La., author of the amendment to re- tain per cent, said the al- lowance has served the nation well over four decades and should not be disturbed. It has assured the nation a steady oil and gas supply by providing an incentive needed for exploration and develop- ment, he says. Other senators from oil-pro- ducing states took a similar view. The depletion allowance works this way: A producer can deduct Per ccnt of in" come before figuring taxes so long as this does not exceed 50 per cent of net income or prof- its. The 50 per cent limitation sometimes means the taxpayer cannot deduct per cent of his gross. For this reason, some congressional tax experts have contended the 27H per cent fig- ure has been given undue im- portance, although conceding it was a major symbol in the tax reform fight. These experts said oil import quotas and the tax benefit known as the intangibles can be of more help to many producers than the depletion allowance. Under the intangibles provi- sion of present law, a producer may write off on his taxes in the year they were incurred all ol his well drilling costs. This is a bigger writeoff than would be allowed most other industries for similar expenses. Search Resumes for Plane; 2 Santas Among 3 Aboard NORTH CONWAY, N.H. (AP) A search for a small plane with three persons aboard miss- ing since Saturday night over the rugged White Mountains' re- sumed today. The aircraft was piloted, by Kenneth Ward Jr., 20, of Augus- ta, Maine. His passengers, Paul Ross, 26, of South Portland, Maine and Cliff Phillips, 27, of Island Pond, Vt., were dressed in San- ta Claus suits preparatory to making parachute jumps over shopping centers in Burlington, Vt., Keene, N.H. and then Ben- nington, Vt. Conduct Search The search was being con- ducted by the Civil Air Patrol from Lebanon, N.H. Col. John Plane, coordinator, said a ceil- ing as low as feet well below some of the peaks of the mountains prevented a full scale resumption of the search. He said the area "is some of the most rugged country we have in the state" and added that only one plane "with an experienced crew" was flying today "to feel out the weath- er." A total ol 27 planes searched the region Sunday but "we couldn't get a look at the high- er elevations because of the ceiling" of to feet. Some of the peaks in the moun- tains rise above feet. The plane was last reported over Berlin Saturday night. It was enroute from Portland to Burlington. Frederick Fuller, operator of Consumers Aerial Advertising Agency of Portland and sponsor of the flight, said Ross had made two jumps at shopping centers.at Rumford, Maine Sat- urday, while Phillips had made similar jumps at Gilford, N.H. and Rockland, Maine. The plane, which left Augusta State Airport Saturday morn- ing, belonged to Ward's father. The search by Civil Air Pa- trol members in New Hamp- shire and Vermont, as well as nine Augusta-based aircraft, searched in snow squalls Sun- day near North Conway. William Perry Jr. of Chelsea, Maine, a pilot who' participated, said the squalls made scanning "very, very rough. "We hope for the best; that's Perry said of chances of finding the airplane and its oc- cupants. Ward, described as a "very careful pilot" by officials in Augusta, began flying when he was 14. He has instrument and mul- tiple engine ratings, flew for a commercial charter service last summer and is an instructor, at an Augusta flight school. He is a second year student at the University of Maine in Augusta. Phillips, a native of Old Town, Maine, is part Penobscot In- dian. TONIGHT IN THE TELEGRAPH.
