(Telegraphoto-Harrigan) WASHINGTON (AP) The Pentagon reported to- day a Soviet ship had re- covered what it described to be airplane parts but no survivors in the Sea of Ja- pan where North Korea claims to have shot down a U. S. Navy Reconnaissance plane. "As of this hour, a. m., EST., regretfully there is no report of any survivors being found from the missing EC121 aircraft lost in the Sea of Japan it said in a statement. "Extensive search efforts are contin- uing." Communication Established "Direct communication has been established between one of the Soviet destroyer-type ships in the search area and a U.S. aircraft from it added. "The Soviet ship said in re- sponse to questions that it had Granite Staters Cheer Agnew By MAXWELL COOK MANCHESTER "Re- publican presidents are famous for getting Ameri- cans out of, not into, wars. In this century, America has never entered a war under a Republican ad- ministration." Over enthusiastic listeners cheered these words, spoken by Vice President Spiro T. Agnew last night at a fund-raising dinner in the Manchester State Armory. Praises Nixon Praising President Nixon's ef- ficiency, Agnew said, he "plans to inject the adrenaline of real- ity into the tired blood of the Great Society. "In the past decade, our na- tion has passed more laws and spent more money to improve our social and economic condi- tions than in all our previous history. Still performance has fallen far short of promise. "Right now we have a prolif- eration of federal programs proposed to help people. In all too many cases people are ex- pected to change to fit the pro- grams. President Nixon's goal is to change programs to fit the people." Prior to the dinner during a press conference, the vice pres- ident praised Gov. Walter Peterson for his task force proposal, saying that "with IMPCO Plans New Building John P. Rich, president of Im- proved Machinery Inc., an- nounced that construction will be- gin soon on a new square foot building expansion in Nashua. The new building will be. added to the recently-built machine shop the facility will be used for the. assembly of plastic processing equipment. The new structure will be 420 feet long and the area covered is nearly two and one half acres. The building is designed for as- sembly line production of injec- tion and How molding machines. Also located in the new building will be shop offices, canteen and lunchroom and plant hospital. It Is expected that the new plant will be in use by January, 1970.

Some- times such groups find opera- tions which haven't been looked at for years and which need at- tention, he said. .He mentioned that new jobs projected in the final days of the Johnson administration have been eliminated by Presi- dent Nixon and that some more will be done away with, thereby lessening the "bureau- cracy" by consolidating effort. In response to a question con- cerning the shooting down of a. U.S. Navy electronics pi a n e Tuesday, Agnew said he had been informed that the plane was 100 miles off the Korean coast at the time of the incident. He said two MIG jets reportedly attacked the aircraft. Awaits Facts The President will have more to say when he learns all the facts, the vice president said. The extremely tight security cover given Agnew strengthened in recent weeks because of the assassinations of public figures, gave the news media a few camera and tape- Agnew High On ROTC Programs "It would be a shame to see this source of leadership dry Vice President Spiro T. Agnew said last night about the Reserve Officers Training Corps. He revealed his full support of the college program in reply to a Telegraph newsman's question during a press conference in the Sheraton Carpenter Hotel, Man- chester. He said in part: "I think that we can understand strict academic policies toward withdrawing credit offered for ROTC courses. They, may not want to give the same posture to Army teachers. "But I disagree that ROTC it rot relevant to protecting United States. I feel, without any qualification, that we should al- low ROTC to be taught on a vol- untary basis. "Some outstanding officers In World War D, in Korea, and in Vietnam, are products of the ROTC. It would be a shame to see this source of leadership dry up." Neatly attired in a dark suit, he appeared much trimmer than his first introduction to the nation via television last summer in the Republican National Convention when he was nominated. He confirmed his reported 18- hour work day, and when asked when he found time to exercise, he mentioned golf and indicated physical fitness programs. recorder restrictions. However, cameras flashed freely during the news conference, held at the Sheraton-Carpenter Hotel, and tape-recorders rolled continuous- ly during the speaking at the armory. The only ban was against film- ing the vice president's speech with sound cameras, a restric- tion which aroused some un- happiness among television cam- eramen. Welcoming addresses were given the vice president by Kimon S. Zachos, chairman of the event, and John C. Mongan, mayor of Manchester. Other speakers at the dinner were U.S. Reps. James C. Cleve- land and Louis C. Wyman; Rob- ert P. Bass Jr., Republican state chairman; Samuel A. Tamposi, of Nashua, finance chairman; and Gov. Peterson. Sen. Norris Cotton, after de- tailing the vice president's pres- .ent assignments in Washington, introduced the honored guest.

The Pentagon said U.S. air- craft flew low over the Soviet ship and photographed the de- bris airmen reported appeared to be a wheel and a ladder. The Soviet ships had been asked to help U.S. planes and ships in the search. The Penta- gon said U.S. fighter aircraft are providing combat cover. The debris was spotted first by a U.S. aircraft which then dropped smoke markers fix the location for the nearpy So- viet ships, the Pentagon said. The operation was aided by a Russian-speaking U.S. airman flown to the scene from Osan Airbase in South Korea. The Pentagon said weather in the area is generally good with ceilings from to feet and visibility seven nu'les. Air temperature was 42 degrees with the sea several degrees colder. President Nixon, awakened early Tuesday shortly after the North Koreans claimed to have downed the plane, has not taken any public action. But officials' said his first official reaction probably will be a strong pro- test. The lumbering propeller-driv- en four-engine craft was ac- knowledged missing Tuesday, eastern standard time, after North Korea abruptly declared it had downed the plane and its 31 crewmen "with one stroke." A massive search for'the un- armed plane, which North Ko- rea claims violated its territory, turned up a trace of debris late Tuesday about 120 miles south- east of the North But the Pentagon said no survi- vors were seen. The incident was remarkably similar to trie North Korean capture 15 months ago of the USS Pueblo, a Navy electronic surveillance ship seized in the Sea of Japan because it alleged- Rep. Rumsfeld Appointment To Poverty Post Hits Snag By ROBERT B. SEMPLE JR. New York Tlmii Newi Struct WASHINGTON President Nixon's efforts to name Rep. Rumsfeld, R-I11., to the coun- try's top anti-poverty post have run into several cluding Rumsfled's own doubts about the job and what may be a serious constitutional road- block. Nixon has offered Rumsfeld the post of Director of the Office of Economic Opportunity, which is now vacant. But the congress- man is said to be undecided and negotiations between his office and the administration are con- tinuing. The potential constitutional Impediment is section six of ar' tide one of the Constitution. which prohibits a member of Congress from taking any Fed- eral post during his term in of- fice if the salary of that post has been raised during that term. Rumsfeld is ,a member of the 91st Congress, which permitted a general pay raise in February. The salary of the anti-poverty director was raised from to Thus, some students of the Constitution believe that if he takes the post he will violate section six, which reads in part: "No senator or representa- tive shall, during the time for which he was elected, be ap- pointed to any civil office under the authority of the United States, which shall have been created, or the emoluments whereof shall have been in- creased during such time..." The 36-year-old congressman, who is regarded as one of the more promising young men in his party, could conceivably take the job at the old salary level. There is a precedent for this. In 1909, after having in- creased the salary of the Sec- retary of State, Congress re- duced it to the earlier figure so that one of iis members, Sen. Philander C. Knox, could be- come Secretary of State.'- But this would presumably require Congress to ameijd the pay-raise law and Rumsfeld to accept a salary cut of As a congressman, he Jnake's under the new pay "scales. ly violated North Korea's terri- torial waters. The Pueblo was captured about 200 miles from the area of the search for the plane. The United States says the plane, a modified Super Constel- lation termed an EC121, was on a routine electronic reconnais- sance mission and never was closer than 50 miles to the Ko- rean coast. Nixon, moving with deliberate calm, met wilh aides Tuesday but waited until today's pre- viously scheduled National Se- curity Council meeting to' call together all of his top diplomat- ic, military and intelligence ad- visers. Officials indicated the protest probably would be directed through the U.S.-North Korean military meetings at the Pan- munjom truce site. rea, in fact, has asked for such a meeting to deal with its claim that the plane had flown over its territory. Besides a protest, U.S. offi- cials said, other later action could be the ordering of fightjer plane protection for future re- connaissance flights off Nojth Korea. However, there were no signs of military retaliation by the United States, at least not for the immediate future. Neverthe- less, sources in Seoul said U.S. and South Korean planes had been placed on special alert. Even though North Korea is a Communist state, the United States turned to the Soviet Un- ion for help in finding the miss- ing aircraft. When the debris was spotted, a Navy plane asked two Soviet destroyers to go the area and got a positive response. Earlier, the U.S. embassy in Moscow had requested search aid from the Kremlin. As late as this morning, there was still no official word from thp United States acknowledg- ing that the plane had been shot down. It disappeared without re- porting any attack or other indi- cation of trouble. However, Vice President Spi- ro T. Agnew said in Manches- ter, N.H., his information was that two Pjorlh Korean MIG fighters attacked the plane. "We are in the process of mak- ing a complete he said. Nixon's caution was in sharp contrast to the campaign criti- cism he made of former Presi- dent Lyndon B. Johnson's han- dling of the Pueblo affair. Nixon said then the seizure -of .the Pueblo by North Korea, which .he called "a fourth-rate military showed that world respect for the United States had declined. At another point in the cam- paign, Nixon said what the Democratic administration should1 have done when the Pueblo was seized "Was to bring in the power to defend that ship or get it out of those waters." "Lei's not let that happen again and I won't let that hap- he jfeaioV Mindful of the. similarity of the two attacks on defenseless U.S. craft, Democrats in Con- gress generally avoided any immediate effort to hold the Re- publican President accountable for the absence of a protective escort. Instead they said the policies which put the plane off the North Korean coast should be reviewed. South Carolina Democrat Mendel L. Rivers, chairman of the House Armed Services Com- mittee, was an exception. He suggested the possible use of nu- clear weapons. "It's time to give them what they ask Rivers said. can dispose of them without full-scale war." Pope Will Visit Geneva In June VATICAN Pope Paul VI announced today that he will go to Geneva in June to attend the 50th anniversary celebration of the International Labor Organization. The world's biggest associa- tion of Protestant churches, the World Council of Churches, said the Pope had sent it word he wants to visit its headquarters in Geneva during his visit, but the Roman Catholic pontiff made no mention of this in his announcement. Pope Paul told his weekly gen- eral audience: "An official invitation has been sent to us to go to Geneva to take part in the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the foun- dation of the International La- bor Organization celebration which is scheduled for the first half of next June. "To this invitation, so unex- pected and so honorary and so much responding to our feeling of esteem for this worthy and representative international or- ganization that is so congenial with our mission of justice, fra- ternity and peace, we have de- cided to reply affirmatively with humble thanks." It will be the first trip by any Pope to Geneva, the city of the Ifith century French Protestant reformer John Calvin. About six weeks later, on July 31, Pope Paul will fly to Africa for a brief visit to Uganda. The World Council of Church- POPE PAUL VI es, which is made up of 234 Protestant, Anglican and Ortho- dox churches, said the Pope's desire to visit its headquarters was conveyed by Cardinal-des- ignate Jan Willebrands, the Dutch head of the Vatican Sec- retariat, for Church Unity. visit "illustrates and emphasiz- es the developing cooperation between the Roman Catholic church and the the council said. Litchfield Official Finds Cement in Car Gas Tank By CLAUDETTE DUROCHER UTCHFIEIJ} Police Chief David A. Campbell said today the state police has been called in to investigate an incident in which cement was poured into the gas tank of the building inspector's car. The incident, he said, occurred Monday night as Building Inspec- tor Roland E. Bergeron held regular office hours in the Cutler Memorial Library. Bergeron also met with the se- lectmen to hear the protests of several contactors whose build- ing permit applications he has held up pending clarification of several legal technicalities. Campbell said a number of per- sons have been questioned about the incident and several leads we being followed up. The library was the scene of t great deal of activity that night, he said. Property owners, he said, were filing tax inventories with -tht selectmen; the town clerk was holding office hours; the ning Board, Zoning Board of Ad- justment and town trustees were meeting. The health inspector, Campbell said, was one of the last persons to leave the building. His car was parked in the pub- lic parking lot in the rear of the library, he added, and, upon later investigation cement was found on the ground near the spot where his car was parked. The car is inoperable, he said, and has. been towed to a garage to determine the extent of dam- age. "There can be quite a bit of feeling about an Campbell said, "but this is no way to settle a disagreement." He asked persons having any Information on the incident to contact police. All information will be kept confidential, he said. 'Disaster' Exercise In Nashua Tomorrow BILLS ARE A PAIN LET A. B. 0.
