(Telegraphoto-Shalhbup) De Gaulle Puts Office Online By STEPHEN BROEN1NG PARIS (AP) Charles de Gaulle went into seclusion at his country retreat today, awaiting the outcome of tht national referendum on which he has staked his presi- dency. Urges "Yes" Vote In a nationwide radio and television address Friday night he urged the French to Vote for the reforms in the referendum, saying "If I am disavowed by a majority among you my present task as chief of state would ob- viously become impossible and'I would immediately cease the exercise of my functions." The outcome of Sunday's vote Is anything but certain. A public opinion poll published late Fri- day By France.Soir, the nation's most widely-read newspaper, showed 51 per cent of the voters -plan to -say "no" to De Gaulle ajid 48 per cent "yes." This, means votes, about one per cent of those ex- pected to cast ballots, could de- termine whether De Gaulle re- turns to Paris. De Gaulle's last minute ad- dress was an attempt to change the minds of wavering voters and a call for a "show of confi- dence" in he began more than 10 years tgo "to give our country the democratic in- stitutions adapted to our peo- ple."

(AP) Tht Rouse Constitutional Revision Committee gives its blessings to l proposed amendment to the slate Constitution that would give New Hampshire's governor a four-year term and have him elected in non-presidential years. The resolution, already passed by the Senate, will be brought to the House, floor for a vote on Wednesday. If approved by the legislature; the amendment also must be passed by the voters be- fore it could become effective. MAURICE L. NOEL Long .Service Cited Hamblett, senior member of the taw firm of Hamblett, Ker- rigan and Hamblett, was tolled for his long service to the community by James D. LeVan, chairman of the committee which made-the selection. The new he said, is president of the board of trus- tees at Nashua Memorial Hospi- tal and president of the Tele- graph Publishing company. He is assistant secretary of Sanders Associates and an advisory di- rector of the Nashua Trust Company. He has been active In the af- fairs of the Arts and Sciences Center and the Nashua Country Club and Is a member of the board of trustees of the Alvirne School. Hamblett, in acknowledging the honor, told ef his pride in Nashua where he was born and has become a lifelong resident. He said he had been close to the "citizen of the year" award before, having in the past writ- ten one introductory speech and one speech of acceptance for a previous winner. Muskie Address Sen. Muskie dwelt on the cur- rent unrest and revolts among college students, saying of the television coverage. "We don't need to agree with them to hear them." Their.protests, he went on, serve a purpose by exposing things wrong and there is much for them to be cynical about. Recalling his own college days in 1932, during a depression, he said that since the insecure days of the.30s, the national govern- ment has been economy con- scious. All its legislation has been aimed at preventing a re- currence of the situation. Then, Muskie said, came World War II and since its ter- mination the government has been military conscious, preoc- cupied with defense and power. The youth of today, he re- minded, have not lived in a time of economic insecurity and in. the atmosphere of world-wide war. They cannot understand the nation's preoccupation with these matters'and the attitudes of their elders who know them from experience stirs them to protest. We must make our society a place of promise, Muskie as- certed. The 1968 candidate for vice president on the Democratic ticket told his listeners that his travels in the past month had taken him ell over the nation. He spoke with pride of the "basic one-ness" of our country but added that New England was "more homelike and re- laxed." Describing Nashua as a "lovely he said people from "unlovely" places will be coming to make their homes and asked If Nashua was preparing for this development. Sen. Muskie was introduced by Charles A. Glenday, presi- dent of the Chamber, who had addressed the gathering on the achievements of the organiza- tion. Local greetings were brought to the guest speaker by Mayor Dennis J. Sullivan, who pre- sented the senator with the key to the city. Peterson Attends Gov. Walter R. Peterson greeted the speaker from the state level and praised his for- mer home town by saying of its progress "they must be doing something right." U.S. Rep. James C. Cleveland extended greeting to Muskie from the national level. He praised the Maine senator and told of their joint activities in public works committees in Washington. The congressman, explaining why he was not wearing a "black tie" like other men at the head table, confessed that apparently communications had erred and he was not ap- prized of the dress. he remarked, "as a representa- tive of the party of the working man it is appropriate that I come dressed as a working man." The Invocation was given by the Right Rev. Msgr. James R. McGreal, pastor of St. Patrick's Church. Opening remarks at the din- HAMBLETT 1 Nashua's Top Citizen Robert B.

Sullivan. India Gets Ultimatum By JAMES M. MAHKHAM NEW DELHI (AP) Reli- able sources said today Commu- nist China gave India a 24-hour ultimatum Wednesday to with- draw its troops from the strate- gic Nathu La pass on the Sik- kimese-Tibetan border. Indian and Chinese troops clashed there in September 1967. The informants said the local Indian commander on the bor- der gave a counter-warning be- fore the deadline expired, say- ing Indian troops would retali- ate if China opened fire on their positions. The Chinese deadline expired at noon Thursday without inci- dent, .according to several sources in New Delhi. Indian troops stationed around Nathu La were reported on full alert. The chief of the army staff, General P. P. Kumaramanga- lam hastened from the capital Friday for a trip to the eastern front. The informants said the Chinese warning focused on the Chumbi Valley, which separates the two Indian-protected king- doms of Bhutan and Sikkim. In- dian and Chinese troops face each other at close range in the Himalayas of Sikkim. The warning, understood- to have been delivered through diplomatic channels, followed a heightened campaign of Chinese propaganda attacks against In- dian leaders. Radio Peking charged last Wednesday that India Is "franti- cally expanding its armament and making war preparations." A Peking broadcast earlier in the month warned: "No matter when and where you invade us, no matter whether you come by yourselves or together with your masters, the Soviet revisionists, you shall be beaten black and blue." The. Chinese made similar statements before fighting broke out for a week in Septem- ber 1967 at Nathu La pass in the Chumbi Valley. The informants noted that New Delhi, which earlier this year attempted to open a diplo- riiatic dialogue with Peking, has recently shifted to a less cordial stance. The Request "After a thorough examina- tion of school and athletic budge t s, rather than cut indiscriminately in some areas where the funds may be a real necessity, I have concluded that you should deduct the sum of from your total budget request of Sullivan wrote the board. The preliminary hearing on the school budget scheduled for Monday has been postponed to May 1 because of the Fast Day holiday. The board is asking more this year to run city schools of which is for wage increases and additional personnel and is for in- creases in items related to main- tenance, equipment and serv- ices. This Is exclusive of the school athletic budget for which is asked. Last year, was allowed for the ath- letic program. In wage matters, the Board of Education has fiscal independ- ence. The mayor has control only over non-wage items. "It is my opinion that the Board of Education along with its departmental talent can best decide where these cuts, can be Sullivan continues In his letter. "I would suggest that you should reconsider in the area of your superintendent of schools salary increase, and the elimi- nation of new positions that you have conveniently created at a sizable expense to the local taxpayers."

The Schubert quartet, along Hudson Seeks Tie-in With Nashua Sewerage System By CLAUDETTE DUHOCHER Hudson selectmen have written Nashua's Board of Public Works the town is desirous of entering into, a contractual agreement with the city for sewage dis- posal. Memorandum of Intent And to further signify the town's the selectmen have included in their letter a memorandum of intent which would serve as a basis for a future contractual agreement between the city and town. It is i expected the Board of Public Works will discuss the letter at Iti next meeting, May 14. A similar memorandum of In- tent was approved for the town of Merrimack in pre-Anheuser Busch days. With the advent of the brewery, the (own decided to build its own sewage treat- ment plant and dropped plans to tie In with the Nashua sys- tem. In their letter, the Selectmen Robert P. Levesque, Frank A. Nutting Jr. and Stanley Aluko- nis state the town would like to enter into an agreement with Nashua to discharge the collect- ed sewage from Hudson into Na- shua's sewerage system for treatment and disposal. The city's treatment plant Is situated on the westerly bank of the'Merrimack River south of Improved Machinery Inc. Current planning calls for Na- shua to independently expand its existing sewage treatment plant from a present average capacity of 2.2 million gallons per day to 20 million gallons per day.

Major Additions Current planning calls for Hud- son to independently construct major additions .to its sewerage system including intercepting sewers teiminating in a river crossing system which will trav- erse the Merrimack River at a point just upstream of the Na- shua treatment plant. Hudson proposes that its sys- tem connect to the major inter- ceptor of the Nashua sewerage system by means of the river crossing and a short length of new interceptor. The town has recently pre- pared a preliminary engineering survey and report on additions to its sewerage system and sewage disposal which is cur- rently under review by the state. "Prior to final acceptance of the report by the state a letter from the city stating that the city will accept Hudson sewage for treatment and disposal must be in the selectmen state. "If the memorandum of intent is generally satisfactory, we would appreciate receipt of Bookkeeping For small businesses and sub-contractors Reasonable Rates Tel. 883-3912 such a letter at your earliest The memorandum of intent recognizes that certain elements of the city's sewage disposal system must be expanded to ac- commodate Hudson's wastes. It also acknowledges that con- tinuing operation and mainte- nance costs will be realized by Nashua for the treatment and disposal of the town's wastes. Provisions Listed In order to insure that all such additional costs are charged to Hudson, the select- men propose the following pro- visions in their memorandum of intent: 1. Hudson would pay to Na- shua as a lump sum entrance fee the increased cost of sewer construction, including both ma- terials and labor, for all size increases in proposed sewers which must be enlarged to con- vey Hudson's waste. The pay- ment would be based on in- cremental costs, that is, the dif- ference In in-place costs be- tween the smaller and larger ctze sewers. The basis of design would be an average Hudson flow of 2.5 million gallons per day and a peak flow of 6.25 million gallons per- day. 2. Hudson would pay to Na- shua as a lump sum entrance fee the cost of expanding the existing sewage treatment plant above the expansion proposed by Nashua alone, including both labor and The pay- ment would be based on the in- cremental cost increase neces- sary to provide capacity for Hudson. 3. Hudson would pay Nashua an annual fee for operation and maintenance costs based on a unit price per measure of flow. The initial unit price would be determined by a review of past operating costs of the existing plant and an estimate of future costs following expansion. This initial cost would remain in ef- fect for about "18 months, at which time it would be reevalu- ated, based en actual operating costs of the expanded plant. The annual unit cost would be subject to escalation, based on employes' salary Increases, cost of living indexes, or other such factors. The basic cost, not including escalation increases, would be subject to re-negotia- tion every five years. 4. If the Nashua plant is con- verted to secondary treatment in the future, or if expansion or reconstruction of facilities is required, then Hudson would pay to Nashua a proportionate part of the total cost equal to the average past year's ration of Hudson flow to total plant flow. Payment Procedure Hudson would pay one-half of the lump sum entrance fee to Nashua at the start of construc- tion, and one-half upon comple- tion of the Nashua expansion. The payment would be leu any Federal or State grants re- ceived by Nashua for the con- struction represented by the en- trance fee. Charges, based on volume of flow, would be paid semi-an- nually at the end of each six months period. The town would meter total flow to Nashua near the. point of connection and would con- tinuously telemeter flow and pH signals to the Nashua plant. All equipment and telemetering costs would be paid :by Hudson and Nashua could inspect the metering equipment at'any time. Flows in excess of 6.25 million gallons per day or pH's lower than 5.0 would he cause for re- negotiation of the basic con- tract. Hudson would adopt, enact and enforce appropriate ordi- nances relating to the discharge of deleterious and industrial wastes to the sanitary sewer system. A supplemental Na- shua-Hudson agreement would be be developed to cover any additional treatment costs caused by large industrial con- tributions within Hudson. The memorandum of Intent would prohibit Hudson from con- tracting to provide sewerage service for any party outiide Hudson boundaries without prior concurrence by Nashua. After an initial period of five years, either party could with- draw from the agreement after HUDSON PUN with Organist James A. Wood, 32 degrees of Nashua, will per- form.
