H. 60 PAGES Price TEN CENTS Five Injured In Two CrashesH Aldermen Adopt Plans For Library; Vetoes Possible By JOHN HARRIGAN A car plowed into a police cruiser stopped at the scene of an accident on the South Daniel Web- ster Highway last night. Five persons were injured, including two policemen, in the two crashes. Injured Identified Police listed the injured as Of- ficer Charles Burnett, Officer William Hill, Glen Gagnon, 17, of 326 West Hollis St., Thomas Locke, 19, of Antrim and Philip Ordoer, 35, of Bedford, Mass; Officers Burnett and Hill, ig- noring their own injuries, stayed at the scene to help the other injured. Burnett required more than 17 stitches for a leg wound when he finally allowed himself to be taken to the hospital. The first accident was reported about p. m. Police said cars operated by .Louis and collided almost head-on in the northbound lane near Emer- son's rug store. One of the vehicles, a small compact, had been pushed off the highway and its hood torn off. Officers Hill and Madigan called for an ambulance to take Locke and Ordoer to the hospital. Meanwhile, Burnett and Gag- non, stopped to assist Hill and Madigan in directing traffic and administering first aid. Two minutes after police ar- rived, according to reports, a car operated by Roland Com- pagnat, 59, of 127-B Vine St., came over the crest of a small hill and Injured Officer inspects Damage FIVE INJURED Page 2 Officer William Hill who was investi- gating a South Daniel Webster Highway crash which wrecked this compact car, when he. was struck in a second crash, inspects the vehicle whi'e keeping his injured leg off the ground. Hill's leg was injured in a collision involving a cruiser, but he stayed at the scene along with another injured officer, Charles Burnett. (Telegraphoto-Harrigan) By Claudette Durocher Mayor Dennis J. Sullivan says he does not know if more vetoes will be forth- coming to thwart the latest set of library oriented measures approved by the Board of Aldermen. Expect Vetoes Virtually every alderman ex- pects Sullivan to produce sev- eral more vetoes in a vain ef- fort to check the library con- struction project. He has seven days to veto the three library measures okayed last night by the aldermen. The aldermen wrapped up the project by: the mayor's veto of a resolution which transfers jurisdiction over the old post office on Court Street from the aldermanic lands and buildings committee to the joint library building committee. The vacant structure is to be torn down. a two-part fund- ing plan to put up the city's to match the supple- mentary donated by Eliot A. Carter. a total of in land damage awards for the taking, of six properties in the Park Street area for construc- tion of the library. the proposed crea- tion of a committee to study the Mill Pond site which a cit- izens' group has advanced as an alternate site for the new library, now destined for the Park Street area. Sullivan has already been un- successful in vetoing two li- brary related measures. One accepted the supplemen- tary Carter gift provided the city appropriated a like amount. The other is the post office resolution. Sullivan arrived late at the meeting but was allowed to ad- dress the board at the end of the session. Repeats Objections He repeated his objections to the project because of unknown costs for the joint library-arts and science center venture. He said all anticipated .costs for the joint project should be stated now and that acceptance of the Carter donation should not be shrouded in uncertain- ties over expenditures or under the threat of losing million. If these conditions had to pre- vail, he added, he felt the donor should withdraw the gift. The remainder of his talk was devoted to his impressions of San Diego, Calif., from which he returned Monday after at- tending the annual Congress of Cities. Aldermen-at-Large Donald R. Hardy and Francis LaFlamme moved and seconded to over- ride the mayor's veto of the post office resolution. The motion was sustained on an 11-3 vote, with Aldermen Ed- mond A. Dionne, Charles E. Theroux and Rotert A. Dion dissenting. Alderman Richard P. Joyce arrived late and was not pres- ent for the vote. Theroux was the Only alder- man voting against the issuance of in bonds to raise half of the required to match the second Carter gift. The resolution to transfer from the capital im- provements account of this year's municipal budget to put up the other half was unani- mously supported.

The quota fight erupted Tues- day, dimming the hopes of some Senate leaders for a speedy fi- nal vote. Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield said afterwards that amendments were coming so fast he didn't know when the measure will pass. Sen. John J. Williams, R-Del., GOP floor manager for the bill, said, however, he feels the 12- Nashua Registers Eighth Road Death Awaits Ambulance Philip Ordoer, 35, of Bedford, Mass., awaits the ambulance as firemen apply first aid to his injured face. Ordoer and four others were injured in separate crashes in South Nashua involving four cars last night. (Telegraphoto-Harrigan) Nashua has recorded its eighth road death this year. Wilfred E. Deschenes, 71, of mVi Pine St., died last night in the Memorial Hospital from in- juries sustained in a pedestrian- truck accident on Oct. 8, accord- ing to police. The accident occurred at West Hollis and Pine Streets and in- volved a trailer truck, which po- lice said, was driven, by Alfred Latulippe, 51, of Merrimack. Deschenes had been in the hos- pital's intensive care unit, suf- fering from a skull fracture, offi- cials said. The Nashuan is the 181st state traffic fatality, two below the rec- ord set last year. The victim was bora at Trois Pistoles, P.Q., Canada, on April 27, 1898, son of Jean and Marie (Roy) Deschenes. He had worked for the Niquette and Son firm, contractors. He was a member of the American Le- gion and Catholic War Veterans Post 1406. He was a communicant of St. Louis de Gonzague Church. He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Marthe (Rioux) Deschenes; a son, Wilfred John Deschenes, this city; three daughters, Mrs. Gor- ROAD DEATH Page 2 Donations Aid Area's Needy Telegraph Santa Fund Totals ,831 day-old floor battle was almost over. Passage sends the bill to House-Senate conference where the measure's sponsors expect a compromise will be hammered out to remove or modify some Senate riders and thus avert the veto pledged by President Nix- on. Last week the Senate broad- ened the tax reform bill to 'in- clude a far-ranging new section increasing Social Security bene- fits and bringing on the veto threat. Tuesday Sen. Norris Cotton, R-N.H., sparked the delaying debate when he proposed the trade rider. It would authorize the Presi- dent to impose import quotas against a commodity being shipped into the U.S. if he found it was harming U.S. companies or workers and if the producing country was putting restrictions on U.S. exports. The amendment is strongly opposed by the Nixon adminis- tration. Secretary of Commerce Maurice H. Stans urged its de- feat in a letter to Sen. Russell B. Long, D-La., floor manager for the tax bill. The letter said the proposal made no provision for a thor- ough investigation prior to ac- tion by the President. Cotton said Stans has been talking about voluntary agree- ments to slow down textile im- ports from Japan and other na- tions but has done little about it. The Senate also shocked tax reform advocates by killing, 65- 25, a provision inserted by the Finance Committee to close what its members called a new loophole. The committee sought to crack down on a scheme involv- ing pension plan corporations set up by professional men, ena- bling them to circumvent limi- tations on tax-free amounts con- tributed for retirement income. The Senate defeated 50-45 an amendment of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., to allow a tax credit for political contribu- tions. It would have permitted a credit of one-half of a contribu- tion up to a maximum in one year. Kennedy said it would broaden citizen participation in campaigns. Opponents de- nounced it as too costly. Justice Refuses Move to Exhume Body of Mary Jo By MARSHA CLEMENT With Christmas just 15 days tway, the Telegraph Santa Fund today stands at The biggest boosts today came in the form of a check from the Kiwanis Club of Nashua, and in cash from an anonymous do- nor.

(AP) A Pennsylvania judge re- fused today to order the body of Mary Jo Kopechne exhumed for an autopsy. It was a victory for the par- ents of the 28-year-old secretary who died last summer in Sen. Edward M. Kennedy's car. Common Pleas Judge Ber- nard C. Brominski, after seven weeks of consideration, denied the petition of a Massachusetts district attorney who plans an inquest. Inquest Delayed The Massachusetts inquest has been delayed pending this ruling. Brominski said h e took into consideration the vigorous ob- jection by her parenls, Mr. and Mrs Joseph Kopechne, Berke- ley Heights, N.J. "While their disapproval is not an absolute bar to an exhu- mation and Bromin- ski said, "in view of the facls presented to this court their ob- jections are well taken." Joseph F.

"We foe[ the family's position has been fully vindicated and. their feeling that there should be no autopsy was justified." The judge also pointed out that the presence of blood in Miss Kopechne's nose and mouth and on her clothing, as noted by Dinis at the hearing, did not provide sufficient doubt to warrant exhumation. He noted that medical and chemical experts said that this kind of blooci residue is consist- ent with death by drowning. "Even if we assume that an autopsy would, reveal a broken neck or any other bone in the body, a fractured skull, the rup- ture of an internal organ, none of (hesc would be incompatible wilh the manner in which this accident he said.
