One of the boys was a 7-year- old. Acting on a telephone tip, po- lice apprehended the five boys. Two 11-year-olds were sent by Juvenile Court to the state In- dustrial School. A 10-year-old was released in the custody of his parents. The 7-year-old is also in cus- tody of his parents, who are taking him to a physician. What made this incident dif- ferent from a dozen or so sim- ilar cases reported by police this year was the extreme youth of the glue-sniffers. And, say police, the five young boys bought the glue and the plastic bags in the same store at the same time. Launch Drive As a result, Nashua police have launched an all out at- tempt to put a halt to glue- sniffing, labeled one of the most dangerous drug-related habits of the younger generation. Children sniff glue for the same reasons that older teen- agers take marijuana or their parents drink alcoholic bever- ages to get "high-" The initial effects of inhaling the vapors of model airplane glue are similar to those of al- coholic intoxication. Coordina- tion is impaired, speech is slurred, vision is blurred and mild hallucinations are pro- duced. Prolonged inhalation of the vapors causes drowsiness, loss of memory and eventually un- consciousness. But there is more. "We had one glue sniffer a while ago that went haywire in his said Lieutenant In- spector Benoit Lavoie, the juve- nile officer of the Nashua Po- lice Department. "He was put- ting his fists through the walls and was giving his folks quite a time." Then there is the permanent damage the vapors can cause. Eepeated inhalation can harm the liver and brain or produce aplastic anemia, a fatal blood disease. Police say most glue sniffers generally range from 10 to 15 years of age. It is the youth of the glue sniffers that make police particularly anxious to stamp out the practice. It is the easy availability of glue that makes, this difficult. Chief of Police Paul Tracy said he and members of the Inspectors'. Division are at- tempting to enlist the coopera- tion of local stores to prevent sale of glue to youngsters. Although some progress has been made in this direction, Tracy said young people still POLICE Page 2 By John M. Hightower WASHINGTON (AP) President Nixon says he in- tends to announce new U. S. troop withdrawals about Christmas time as part of a.plan he declares will result in the Vietnam War ending regardless of efforts for a negotiated peace. Retains Schedule Nixon told a news conference Monday; night North Vietnamese infiltration into South Vietnam has gone up in recent weeks, but not as much as first be- lieved, and "we do not consider the infiltration significant enough to change our withdraw- al plan." He cautioned, however, ene- my action still could cause him to alter his view. He said the number of American soldiers to be pulled out in the next round is still undecided. It appeared Nixon wants further reports on infiltration before making a fi- nal decision. He promised the announcement in two or three weeks. In his 30-minute session with reporters, his first formal news conference since late Septem- ber, Nixon dealt largely with Vietnam, including the alleged My Lai massacre. But he also touched on domestic and foreign policy matters. There was an undisguised threat to veto the tax reform bill as written by the Senate to include large increases in Social Security benefits and a jump in personal income tax exemp- tions. Nixon also warned again he will call Congress back into a rare post-Christmas special ses- sion if lawmakers' efforts flag in acting on appropriations. And 'he spoke optimistically about the Soviet-U.S. arms con- trol talks. Speculations on another U.S. troop pullback has centered on a figure- of for the next announcement, which would bring the total withdrawals an- nounced this year to at least "The enemy still has the ca- pability of launching some of- fensive Nixon said. But the present prognosis that I think I can make is this: That we can go forward with our troop withdrawal program and that any action that the ene- my takes either against us or the South Vietnamese can be contained within that program." He said the war is cooling off with casualties and infiltration both down now as compared with a year ago. "Looking to the Nix- on said, "if that situation contin- ues I believe that we can see that the Vietnam War will come to a conclusion regardless of what happens at the bargaining table." At present, he said, the chances for a negotiated settle- the Paris peace talks "not but they might improve as his Victnamization plan develops because the enemy would find it harder to make a settlement with the Saigon gov- ernment alone than with Saigon and Washington. Nixon was asked early in the session about the alleged mas- sacre of Vietnamese civilians by U.S. troops at My Lai in early 1968. "What appears to have hap- pened was certainly a massa- Nixon said. "Under no cir- cumstances was it justified." He said the United States was fighting to prevent the people of South Vietnam from having im- posed upon them "a govern- ment which has atrocity against civilians as one of its policies." "We cannot ever condone or use atrocities against civilians in order to accomplish that he declared. Considered Isolated Nixon said the My Lai inci- dent was an isolated one. He also declared American soldiers have a record "of generosity, of decency" toward the South Viet- namese and tliis record "must not be allowed to be smeared." "That is why I am going to do everything I possibly can to see that all of (he facts in (his inci- dent are brought to he said, "and that those who are charged, if they are 1'ound guilty, are punished." He ruled out, however, a sep- arate civilian investigation of the incident as urged hy some congressmen and leading public figures. On domestic issues, Nixon said he would not sign a tax in- form bill raising personal in- come tax exemptions from to and providing a 15 per cent increase in Social Security programs. "If I signed the kind of bill which the Senate is about to he said, "I would be re- ducing taxes for some of the American people and raising the prices for all the American people. I will not rto that." NIXON Page 2 President Threatens To Veto Tax Reforms By STERLING F. GREEN WASHINGTON (AP) Presi- dent Nixon is cracking his whip at Congress with a renewed threat to call a special post- Christmas session and a warn- ing that he .would veto the mas-, tax reform bill as now writ- ten ,by the Senate! .T.he President .took a tough fiscal line in'his televised news conference Monday night, mak- ing it clear he intends to protect his. planned budget surpluses from deep tax cuts and in- creased spending. "I can assure you that I in- tend to use all the powers I pos- sess as Nixon said, "to stop the rise in the cost of the veto." The veto notice came early in the half-hour exchange with newsmen. One of them asked: Could he sign the tax bill if it clears Congress containing the Senate-approved boost in per- sonal income tax exemptions from the .present to plus the proposed 15 per cent in- crease in Societ Security bene- fits? Nixon replied quickly and em- phatically: "No." He also renewed his recent warning that he will call Con- Proposal Covers Residential Areas Aldermen to Vote on Truck-Travel Ban Tonight By CLAUDETTE DUROCHER The aldermanic traffic com- mittee will recommend at to- night's Board of Aldermen meeting that trucks be banned from traveling on Hills Ferry Road between Manchester and Concord Streets. And the committee is also recommending that trucks be prohibited from traveling on Main D u n s t a b 1 e Road, on Charles Street and on Fair- mount Street. The Fairmount Street ban, however, would exempt trucks servicing the Granite State Tan- nery. Originally, the multiple ordi- nance prohibited trucks from using Franklin Street, except for those servicing the Nashua Corporation and the Nashua Paper Stock Co. Alderman-at-Large John V. Chesson, traffic committee chairman, said this provision in the ordinance was recommend- ed for deletion as the commit- tee prefers to have Franklin Street accessible to any truck. The Hills Ferry Road ban, he said, was recommended for ad- dition to the ordinance with the approval of Ward 2 Alderman Barry L. Cerier. Chesson said residents in the area have been disturbed about trucks using the narrow, wind- ing road, especially pole-carry- ing vehicles from Koppers Com- pany Inc. Their fears were heightened, he said, when a Koppers truck carrying a load of poles over- turned while turning at Hills Ferry Road and Manchester Street last week. The Koppers trucks, Ohesson said, could make use of the Henri Burque Highway once Hills Ferry Road is closed to them. Company drivers had preferred to use the road, he said, to avoid short turns in- volved in getting onto the high- way. The proposed multiple ban or- dinance, he added, would not exclude any delivery trucks from traveling on any of the streets listed. Its aim, he said, is to discourage through truck traffic in these essentially resi- dential areas.

Leonard Grigas of Lake Street Station, were called to Field's Grove swimming area to rescue the ven- turesome canine who was too heavy for the early winter ice. The firemen slid a boat across the ice, hauled the wet, freezing dog aboard, thawed him out in the back seat of a police cruiser and took him to his owner. Yesterday Captain Grigas and the three firemen again went to Field's where a dog had fallen through the ice. They found the same dog swimming around in the cold wa- ter. Again they brought him to shore and took him to his owner. Soon, the firemen hope, it will be cold enough to make ice thick enough to support even a "very large" Alaskan husky.

H. gress back into special session after Christmas if it fails to complete its work on the major appropriation hills for fiscal government year which already is almost half over. Most of the 13 money bills still are unfinished, making it doubt- ful whether Nixon can prepare his budget message for fiscal 1971 in lime to meet the Janu- ary legal deadline. Nixon said both House and Senate have speeded up their work on appropriations, raising his hopes of completion in time so that "you can all have a va- cation" between Christmas and New Years. The Senate voted overwhelm- ingly for the ?800 personal ex- empfion and Die Social Security boost in its high-speed tax delib- erations last week. The reform measure is now so festooned with tax relief amendments that it is called "the Christmas tree bill." Nixon's veto notice in effect invited the Senate to reconsider its position. Failing that, the warning might influence the Senate and House conferees, 1 when they meet to reconcile differences in the measures passed by (he IvVo chambers, to reach a compromise closer to House version.
