(Telegraphoto-Harrigan) Treasury Department Promises Tax Reforms By EILEEN SBANAHAN New York Sirviei WASHINGTON The Nixon administration committed itself today to seek Congressional inactment this year of reforms that would make the tax laws fairer. Tt promised, specifically, to examine the issue of "equity" in the tax laws-whether..: "all Americans in similar circum- stances are paying approxi- mately the same amount-of in- come taxes." The Administration also reaf- firmed .its intention despite some strong opposition in Con- seek enactment of spe- cial new tax credits as incen- tives to private business "to help solve the problems of the cities and of our disadvan- taged." The commitment to a pro- F'am involving both reformi and new tax credits came in -a statement from Secretary of the Treasury David M. Kennedy. Kennedy said that the Admin: istration also as longer-range project, .to under- take an examination of liiu en- tire national tax structure, in- cluding the relationships be- tween- .federal, state and local tax systems and the impact of. the tax system on the .national economy and international eco- nomic relationships. Exactly when the proposed re- forms and tax credit plans will be submitted to congress, the treasury itself does not yet know, an official spokesman in- dicated! But they will be sent tq'Cortgress, either as one pack- age or as two separate ones, in time for action this year, said. The reform package will spe- cifically attempt to deal with the fact that, under present law, some individuals with high in- comes pay little or no federal income tax, he said. The spokesman noted that President Johnson's Secretary of the Treasury, Joseph W. Barr, had recently warned of a "taxpayer revolt" if some- thing were not done to improve the fairness of the tax laws. The treasury spokesman said that he did not think it was "to the rebellion stage, but is certainly taxpayer unrest." HOOKSETT, N. H. (AP) Authorities report a man who tried to collect for the safe return of Debra Lee Horn, even though he did not have the missing Allenstown girl, was arrested and will be charged today with at- tempted blackmail. The identity of the 35 year old Manchester man was being withheld by authorities pending an af- ternoon appearance in Hooksett Municipal Court. Col. Joseph Regan, head of the State Police, said the man was booked today. Missing Since Jan. 29 The 11-year-old girl has been missing from her home since Jan. 29. Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Horn, fear she has been abducted but authori- ties officially list her as missing child. Regan said the man who was arrested had contacted news- caster Ed Williams of WMUR- TV in Manchester after Wil- liams had offered to be the go- between with the family i f somebody had the child and wanted to collect the offered by an anonymous Bos- ton friend of the Horn family 1 i Weekend Edition i Stock Lisfs Teen-Age Page Extra Comics with no strings attached for the safe return of the youngster.

The man was arrested and booked in Manchester, Regan said. He added that the. case was taken to the Hooksett court because newsman Williams is a Hooksett resident.

The girl's father said Friday night that he recently asked the Horn said today in Allenstown that the authorities had not made him aware of the arrest. He add- ed: "We're just sitting here wait- ing and praying lhat she'll be back." Horn said he "appreciates all that everyone is trying to do." Horn said he Hunks his daughter has been taken "out of state. She's been kidnapped and (hey don't even want to suggest that." Volunteers Sought Meanwhile, police asked for volunteers to participate Sun- day'in a last major search ef- fort in a bid to find a clue to the mysterious disappearance of the youngster. Police Chief Roland Baillar- geon of Allenstown asked volun- teers to report to the state high- way shed on Route 28, just be- hind the residence of the miss- ing 11-year-old girl's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Horn. The search will continue 'until, dark. He said he is not asking for visitors but .for those who are willing to work in a detailed check of the woods. The detailed check will in-. elude one previously unsearched area that is marked by rough territory. The girl had been permitted by her parents to stay home from school after they said she slipped on some ice and com- plained of pain. They said she was missing when they re- turned home from work for lunch. Authorities said .they have un- covered no solid clue to indicate, the fate of the youngster. Heliport Controls, Burque Highway Interchange Top Aldermanic Agenda By CLAUDETTE DUROCHER A petition requesting a full in- terchange at the Henri Burqut Highway Manchester Street in- tersection and an ordinance to control the establishment of heliports are the major items of new business coming up be- fore the Board of Aldermen Tuesday night.

Emphasis on Education in Peterson 9s Budget CONCORD, N.H. ing the finishing touches to the proposed budget he'll pre- sent to -the legislature, Gov. Walter Peterson said. Friday that what is "most important for everyone to fcnmv is that Hollis Teachers Seek Written Agreement HOLLIS At a preliminary hearing last night, the. town's budget committee was present- ed a letter by teacher' repre- sentatives stating a "written ne- gotiations agreement is an ab- solute necessity." The letter was presented to the budget committee by John Wing, representing Hollis leach- It read: "On Feb. 3, Hollis teachers wet to discuss the school board's salary proposal for school year 1909r70.. By a ma- jority vote the teachers rejected the school board's proposal. "The proposal contained only four notable changes from that of the previous year: 1) an in- crease of in the base pay for Incoming teachers; 2) pay- ment of 100 per cent tuition lor approved courses, up to an amount of 3) a three- step raise in the maximum for the bachelor, bachelor plus 15 credits and bachelor plus 30 credits levels; 4) and adjust- ment in sick leave policy.

Midnita comprising attitude, they, the board, have acted in an unpro- fessional manner, not in the best interests of continued quality education in the town of Hollis. "Another reason for rejection was .the failure of the board to provide for adjustments over and above the merit increments. "The experienced teachers are entitled to increments given to inexperienced teachers, new to the Hollis school system. "The teachers feel that in order for the salary committee to function as true representa- tives, a written negotiations agreement is an-absolute neces- sity. As siich, professional ne- gotiations remain the primary demand of the teachers. Unless this fact is faced tire :gap be- tween school board and teacher -representatives will continue to At present, the minimum sal- ary is with a maximum on the bachelor's scale.

He said the board has also refused to enter into written negotiations agreement. we. mean it when we say we're going to make the best .use of our resources." Peterson safl he wants to "get the most for our money'." The budget recommenda- tions are due for presentation to the lawmakers next week. He won't divulge the exact total budget figure until then. Education will be an area that he'll stress, he said. "I'm going to have more money allocated specifically to-. ward state aid to he added. While setting a certain figurt for each agency, the governor has sought to give department heads some amount of latitude in "shifting line items." He repeated that his will a "hold the line budget, but right now I want to give tht Ice Skating Rinks Target of Vandals The Park and Recreation Com- mission has reported to.

He said department heads are getting another chance to look over their agency's basic needs, and "many of them are taking this with mixed feeling. It's a mixed reaction because, natural ly, each department represents a vested is concerned with his own depart- ment's needs. "But, on the whole, they all realize we have to and do this job he said. Earlier, he had speculated that during the past 10 years the revenue increase has been about 8 per on this basis, a figure of between S140 million and million was of- fered as probably the total budget figure. However, he said Friday that the, budget figure might be "a little misleading" because the state actually has had a spotty revenue of about 6 per cent if an exception is made for the recent period whe.n Massachusetts passed a sales tax. It was noted lhat directly after the tax was enacted in the Bay State, New .Hampshire experienced a sharp revenue rise that since has leveled off. Thus, observers feel Peterson may not stick closely to-the 8 per cent revenue figure. on which the million budget total was calculated. The Interchange petition re- quests that the public good rt- quires "protection of land in the area of Henri Burque Highway 2nd Defeat for Amhersf School Plan AMHERST. The voters of Amherst. last night defeated for the second time the attempt of the School Board to build an addition of 12 teaching stations with the. open concept at the Wilkins School. The vote was 252 yes, and 20S no. The motion needed a two- thirds majority, or 301 votes to pass. Last night's revised fig- ure of dropped from the original and pre- sented by the Scllbol Board and the Ways and Means Commit- tee, was rejected. A public hearing on the pro- posed addition was held two weeks ago. Last Friday, at the special district meeting, the ad- dition was defeated for the first time by .ten votes, and the meeting was recessed for a week. Last night the voters met again to reconsider a revised plan of the same addition. Cree- ley Buchanan, school modera- tor; presided. Present were Le- land Gray Jr., and Herbert Stearns, members of the School Board. Gray appealed for volunteers to serve on a new building com- mittee. and Manchester Street for an Interchange." It also asks that the state provide a "complete inter- change" at the intersection, the scene of numerous. accidents, including a fatality. Stanley M. Lapinskas, -11 Hill- side Drive, and his .wife, Lu- cille, are the first signatories on the petition. He refused to ex- pand on the "protection of land" request, saying the details would emerge during alder- manic discussion.' The heliport ordinance stems from -controversies which flared lip last year over the establish- ment of 'six heliports in the city. It would require that all pro- posed heliports or helipads in the-city be submitted in the form. of an application for reg- istration to the New Hampshire Aeronautics Commission. Copies of the application would have to be filed with Nashua Airport Authority (NAA1 and the City Planning Board. A public hearing, to be con- ducted jointly by the NAA and the Planning Board, would be required on the application. The hearing would havt to- advertised two consecutive days in a local newspaper, the second advertisement being no later than five days before the publle hearing. No heliport or- helipad could be located in the city without there first being a.public hear- ing, a joint recommendation by the NAA and the Planning Board, and subsequent approval of the registration application by the state. At present, heliports may established without specific ap- proval by tht state or city. Grandmaison, Noel Eyeing City Post 8 j Pearson 5'Social
