Vetoed Earlier The Neverett resolution, al- ready once vetoed by Sullivan, made a return trip to the may- or's desk to clear up legal dif- ficulties hindering the sale of in bonds to finance pur- chase of the Garden Street property. Difficulty of enforcement was given as Sullivan's reason for vetoing an ordinance to ban trucks from traveling on Main Dunstable Road; on Charles Street; on Fail-mount Street, ex- cept those servicing the Granite State Tannery, and on Hills Ferry Road. Sullivan said his veto on the DPW transfer resolution was "conditional" since he favored the installation of 20 radios in- stead of the 40 desired by the public works commissioner. The aldermanic finance com- mittee has since agreed to pur- chase only 20 units. The job policy ordinance il to be introduced for a first reading. Department heads met with the aldermanic rules and policy committee last night to review the ordinance, which was draft- ed with the aid of Yarger Associates, personnel manage; ment consultants of Falls Church, Va. The session revealed conflict! ALDERMEN Congress Races To Adjourn After Passing Tax Reforms By WALTER K. MEARS WASHINGTON (AP) The last serious barriers to congressional adjournment today were cleared away with passage of the massive tax reform bill and Senate surrender an President Nixon's plan to open up more construction jobs to blacks. Expect To Adjourn With these matters taken care of Monday, the House marked time before today's expected midafternoon adjournment, while the Senate faced its last bit of routine ing regulations governing trade with some Communist nations. The major congressional handiwork of 1969, the giant .tax cut and reform bill, already is on its way i to the White House and a top Senate Republican said there is no doubt President Nixon will sign it into law. The tax bill swept through the Senate Monday, 71-6, after clearing the House 381-2. Ulti- mately, it will provide bil- lion in tax cuts, offset by billion in revenue to be raised by the reform provisions. But a lesser measure, a nor- mally routine million ap- propriation bill for an assort- ment of federal agencies, pro- duced a civil rights controversy which kept the Senate working late Monday amid maneuver and controversy. At issue was congressional clearance of the administra- tion's Philadelphia plan de- signed to promote employment of Negroes on federally-financed construction projects. A Senate amendment tacked on to the catch-all appropriation bill would hav. barred continua- tion of that program; Nixon termed it unconstitutional aud threatened a veto. The House voted 208-156 to strike the amendment from the bill, and the Senate, weary and ready to quit, finally yielded, too. The roll call vote was 93-29 to go along with the House and clear the way for a Christmas holiday. The appropriations involved were minor, but the bill carried another amendment crucial to the fragile framework with which Congress arranged to end the longest session in six years. That one provides authority for continued spending by govern- ment agencies which have not yet received their regular ap- propriations for the fiscal year which began last July 1. A veto on the civil rights issue would 'have killed the spending authority, too, and three major government agencies could not meet their payrolls without it. The appropriations involved are for the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, the Department of Labor and the foreign aid program. Ear- lier disputes sidetracked their funds until Congress returns to work. Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield said the J billion appropriation for health, education and labor programs Nixon has threatened to veto also because it exceeds his be the first order of business when the 91st Con- gress begins its second session Jan. 19. Senate manpower was dwin- dling as the recess neared: 7 members were on hand for what was the final roll call Monday night. Vice President Spiro T. Ag- new made a late evening trip to the Capitol to preside, presuma- bly in case of a tie vote, which he could have broken in favor of the administration. The measure involved both civil rights and congressional prerogatives to oversee federal spending. The job system is called the Philadelphia plan, and under.it, federal contractors agree to provide a prescribed share ol construction jobs to Negroes and other minority Americans. Comptroller General Elmer B. Staats, responsible to Con- gress for supervision of spend- ing, has ruled this an illegal quota system. Atty. Gen. Aohn N. Mitchell, who works for the administration, has held it a proper use of goals for minority employment. The amendment would have barred spending on contracts which the comptroller general holds to be illegal. The Senate retreat means the courts eventually will decide the it also means the CONGRESS Firemen Curb Duties In Contract Dispute The firemen continued their work slowdown today in an at- tempt to break a contract nego- tiations stalemate over inclusion of officers in a work contract be- ing negotiated with the fire com- missioners. Leonard Dube, president of Lo- cal 789, International Association of Fire Fighters, said the union membership at a meeting yester- day agreed to continue the slow- down and picketing activities un- til a satisfactory response is heard from the commissioners.

Police identified White as Mrs. Ellis' common law husband. man of the fire commission, said there are no plans to meet' with the union and the commissioners are still holding fast to their stand that officers, should be regarded as part of management. Dube said the firemen, aside from the slowdown, will not work overtime and will not answer sec- ond alarms, which call off-duty men for backup duty during fires. The firemen, he said, will con- tinue to answer general alarms and "there will be complete fire protection for the city." Future plans for the local, he said, are indefinite. "We are operating on a day-to-day Dube added. The 89-member union resumed picket activities at City Hall to- day from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mayor Dennis J. Sullivan, who was called upon by the union to intervene in the dispute, said he is in total agreement with the fire commissioners. "No man can serve two mas- he said, "and I feel it's best for the city that firemen with supervisory powers in the fire department be regarded as part of management as they would be in private industry." Sullivan said he intended to maintain his position over this issue no matter how many pres- sures the union brought to bear on the city. Retain Membership The 26 officers in question are already members of Local 789. Officers have been allowed to retain their membership in the union since it was organized 24 years ago. The contract under negotiation would mark the first written con- tract between the commission and the local.' Previous agreements have been on an oral basis. Dube said the local did not understand why the commission- ers allowed officers to belong to the union for 24 years but did not want to do so now that working terms "are to be reduced to per." Officers should not be consid- ered part of management, he said, because they do not have hiring or firing powers and no disciplinary power. Whatever supervisory powers, they have, he said, are limited as in their authority to make recommendations on a fireman'i work performance. The fire commissioners, Dube stated, did state they would allow FIREMEN Page J Blaze Kills 3rd in Family EXETER, N.H.
