(Telegraphoto Dillaby) Arson StUl Not Ruled Out Alvirne Fire Probe Pushed HUDSON State and local fire of- ficials are intensifying their probe into the cause of the fire Sept. 8, which destroyed Alvirne High School. Authorities said arson has still not been ruled out as a probable cause of the fire which swept the town's only high school. Federal, state and local authorities began their investigation while fire fighters were still extinguishing the last pockets of fire. Agents of the Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms division of the U.S. Treasury Department, working with state and local officials in the probe, had ruled out the possibility of a bomb having caused the fire. Fire Investigator George Odell of the State Fire Marshal's Office, also ruled out a boiler explosion as a cause. Odell, Fire Chief Frank Nutting and Lt. Robert Fournier of the Hudson Police Department, were joined by State Police from the State Police Crime Lab, who assisted in probing the ruins. While the investigation is continuing, Hudson school students are beginning to readjust. Alvirne students were shifted to the town's Memorial School, and some of the Memorial School students were transferred to the St. Francis Xavier school in Nashua. School department officials and building engineers are also looking at the remains of the Alvirne building in an ef- fort to determine what portions of the ex- isting structure can be salvaged and repaired. In the meantime, Hudson residents have been told not to expect disaster assistance from the federal government for their high school. Sen. Thomas J. Mclntyre, D-N.H., said Wednesday President Ford is holding back all pin-point disaster funds just approved by Congress. Citizens in Hudson are considering petitioning Ford directly for help. By ENDRE MARION WASHINGTON (AP) Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger said today he expects to reach an under- standing with the Soviet Union allowing freer emigration from that nation Not a Precondition But, Kissinger said, freedom of emigration should not be a precondition for stronger economic ties with the Soviets. Such a policy might revive the cold war at- mosphere of postwar years, he said. Kissinger gave his views in a foreign policy statement before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee which is conducting hearings on the policy of detente with Com- munist countries. Kissinger also defended ex- isting agreements with the Soviet Union on the limitations of strategic nuclear weapons and declared the goal of future Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (SALT) is to achieve "es- sential equivalence" in the strategic forces of the two su- perpowers. "We are now moving toward an understanding (with the Soviet Union) that should significantly diminish the obstacles to emigration and ease the hardship of prospective Kissinger said. He said those who demand "internal changes (in the Soviet Union) must be the pre- condition for the pursuit of a relaxation of tensions with the Soviet Union" are wrong. "Our view is different.

(AP) Four persons were killed today in the crash and subse- quent explosion of a private plane near Monmouth County Routes 524 and 571 here, state police said. Identification of the vic- tims, whose bodies were dis- figured by the fire that engulf- ed the plane and surrounding woods, was not immediately available. Witnesses reported hearing the crash and explosion of the Beechcraft Twin Bonanza, which was believed en route from Concord, N.H., to Philadelphia. The craft contacted the con- trol tower at McGuire AFB during heavy fog and was re- routed to Trenton- Robbinsville Airport. "The pilot made an in- strument approach here but missed, and then made a standard approach air- port president Seth Hetherington said. "We had radio contact with him until he went down." Federal Aviation Officials in New Hampshire said the plane belonged to Ferns Fly- ing Service, Inc., of Concord and took off from Concord at a.m. today. Several City Traffic Plans Under Study Thp Tmffin ii.nt tu-.., ni___A _ New Hearing May Be Sought On Farkas' Appointment The Aldermanic Traffic Committee last night schedul- ed a joint meeting to be held on Wednesday, Sept. 25, with the Board of Public Works. Items to be considered by the two panels will include a traffic study of Dun- stable Northeastern Boulevard area. The meeting will also con- sider the feasibility of the ex- tending of St. Joseph's Drive through to West Hollis Street. This is a possible solution to the problem brought to the committee by St. Joseph's Hospital some weeks ago, vrhen the hospital asked about the possibility of restoring two-way traffic on Kinsley Street. Hospital authorities were deeply concerned about accessibility to the hospital, and limitations that they felt were imposed by the one-way designation of Kinsley Street. The boards will also discuss the position of an individual who will function as a traffic control specialist. Alderman Henry J. Desharnais Jr., chairman of the Aldermanic Traffic Committee, sees the position as one which will in- corporate traffic respon- sibilities now carried by several agencies, easing workloads and promoting ef- ficiency in the city's handling of traffic problems. In other business, the com- mittee postponed indefinitely ordinances relative to stop signs on Royal Oak Drive and Natick Street. Committee approval was given to ordinances dealing with a stop sign on Lock Street at Atherton Avenue; restric- tion of operation of off- highway vehicles; stop signs on Courtland at Chester; mak- ing a portion of Dearborn Street two-way; stop signs on Dearborn Street at Prospect; forbidding parking on a por- tion of the west side of Dear- born Street; and one-hour parking on a portion of the north side of Amherst Street. Ordinances which would forbid parking from 6 to 6 on a portion of West Hollis Street; prohibit overnight parking of trucks in residential areas; prevent obstruction of view at intersections; and the or- dinance relative to es- tablishing one-hour parking on a portion of the east side of Walnut Street were held in committee. The ordinance relative to establishing a Traf- fic Division was held in com- mittee. By JONATHAN KELLOGG WASHINGTON (AP) An aide to Sen. Gale McGee, D- Wyo., says that McGee will probably ask to reopen hear- ings on the appointment of Ruth Farkas as ambassador to Luxembourg if he gets new evidence indicating a purchase of the am- bassadorial nomination. But Richard McCall said the Senate Foreign Relations Committee has not received official word that Rep. Louis C. Wyman changed his ac- count of the date Mrs. Farkas met with former President City Bus Service Resumes Sept. 30 Local bus service in the city of Nashua will resume on Monday, Sept. 30, after a suspension of more than two months.

Areas where elderly residents live will be concentrated on. Nixon's re-election campaign chairman, Maurice Stans. The New Hampshire con- gressman, acknowledged mid- d I e m a n in securing the Luxembourg ambassadorship for Mrs. Farkas, Tuesday dis- closed that Mrs. Farkas, a contributor to Nixon's campaign, met with Stans in May 1972. Mrs. Farkas, nominated by Nixon in August 1972 for Luxembourg, is under investi- gation by the Special Prose- cutor's Office because of alle- gations that the Nixon ad- ministration sold am- bassadorships. In separate letters to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which approved her nomination in March 1973. she and Wyman said the meeting with Stans was in September 1972 after she was nominated. McCall said McGee wants official confirmation that there was a mistake about the meeting dates but he said it would require a decision of the entire Senate Foreign Relations Committee to reopen the hearings. Calls to Luxembourg by The Associated Press and a Man- RUTH FARKAS Chester radio station failed to get a response from Ambassa- dor Farkas about the change in dates on her meeting with Stans. An embassy employe said Mrs. Farkas had been fore- warned about such calls and would have no statement. Meanwhile, two of Wyman's political rivals in New Hamp- shire demanded that he drop out of the race for the U.S. Senate following the latest MKS.
