H. 18 PAGES Price TEN CENTS Brooke Shuns Nixon Offer By WARREN WEAVER JR. Niw York (irviti WASHINGTON Sen. Ed-- ward W. Brooke has rejected a request from President Nixon that he head the United States delegation to an economic con- ference in Africa. The underlying reason for Brooke's refusal to accept the assignment was a conviction that he was not being sought out for a substantive role in American foreign policy but rather as a visible but non- functioning front man, a posi- tion he does not enjoy. The Massachusetts Republic- an denies that this episode rep- resents a new or continuing breach with the Presi dent. Whether or not this is correct, it illustrates the uneasy political relations that exist betw e e n Nixon and the most prominent and successful Negro office- holder in his party. These relations could have more than ordinary signifi- Tclegraph Vol 1, No 1 Sought for Centennial The Nashua Telegraph Is continuing Its search for Vol. 1, No. 1 published on a Monday March 1, 1869.

The unsettled state of the po- litical alliance between the President and Brooke goes back to the early days of the 1968 campaign and continues through the post election period ol cabinet selection. On early flights of the Nixon campaign plane, Brooke was an Invited guest, posing with the candidate as they disembarked at various urban airports. But after a few weeks, the Senator quietly, dropped out of the trav- eling entourage and did not re- appear. He maintains that he spent the rest of the fall running all over the'country speaking for Nixon and other Republican can d i- dates, that there was no slack- ening of his political activity but merely a shift in its em- phasis. His friends report, however, that he was angry and bitter over the role he had been as- signed' by the Nixon operation, one that emphasized his being seen with the candidate but did not give him any real opportu- nity to contribute his political expertise or knowledge in issue areas. Differences broke out into the open once in early September after Nixon had publicly placed the problems of the cities at the bottom of a national priority list. The Senator protested audi- bly but later told a news con- ference he still supporting the presidential candidate, de- spile some disagreement. It was shortly thereafter he. gave up his seat in the campaign plane. The question of whether Brooke was manipulated for po- litical effect in the cabinet-se- lection interim, as some believe he had been during the cam- paign, is a more complicated one. The Senator himself has said, both publicly and privately, that he considers the multiple offer made to him by Nixon to have been genuine and legitimate, not merely a proposal made with the sure knowledge it would be rejected and thus aimed solely at enlisting Negro support for the incoming ad- ministration. Hudson Chief Cites Department Needs HUDSON The need for an- other police officer and for an extra fulltime cruiser in Hudson is acute, according to the 1968 police report from Chief Andrew J. Polak. "Enforcement is the key to he says- "To be able to enforce the law more readily we need, as I have stated on numerous occasions, another cruiser on duty. We have one cruiser full time, that is, 24 hours, the other cruiser is on parttime. "Another fulltime officer is needed badly." Polak continues. "One officer resigned due to per- lonal reasons, and a replacement was appointed. We are still shorl two men." Polak also reported that the education of the men on the force is continuing. Many of the officers have been attending courses at St. Anselm's College in Man- chester on different phases of the law, crime detection and acci- dent investigation. The chief noted that twice monthly there is a meeting where instructions are given in all types of police work. This includes criminal and accident investiga- tions, camera work, how to ad- minister oxygen, and the use of side arms. Hudson totaled one motor ve- hicle .accident fatality, and 425 arrests for different offenses, he reported. Four arrests were made at gunpoint. The chief said that the police has been passing out pamphlets PIZZA by Charles Famous thru out New England 147 W.

He said that the de- partment has received calls re- porting that strangers have tried to induce children to ride with them. Polak .said that such incidents should always be reported be- cause even the smallest clue can sometimes lead to an arrest- He emphasized also that should Hud- son residents notice a strange truck or other vehicle lurking about in their neighborhood, that they should call the station at once. "If at all he says, "get the registration, make and jplor of the vehicle. This will greatly assist us in our investiga- tion of any house breaks or larceny. Any and all information will be kept in the strictest he concludes.

Warren Phillips, 16, died Mon- day in a hospital in Dover from injuries sustained in a car crash here Sunday on Route 16. TONIGHT IN THE TELEGRAPH and East Germany were plan- ning to stage joint military ma- neuvers in .a test of nerves de: signed to prevent the election scheduled for March 5. West Germans traveling by car to West Berlin were being delayed about two hours longer than normal by tighter East German identity checks. Yakiibovsky was met in East Berlin by top-ranking officers from the Soviet and East Ger- man armed forces. A Soviet embassy spokesman in East Berlin said that Yaku- bovsky had come to discuss "the current situation."

By JOHN HARRIGAN Yesterday was described as "No-Go and today is "Digging-Out as Nashuans attempted to make their way back to jobs and pick up the shreds of a weekend disrupted by one of the fiercest winter storms of the past decade. Schools Closed In the meantime, school stu- dents in Nashua enjoyed another holiday, while Hudson pupils re- ported for classes. New Hampshire had six deaths attributed to the storm. While Nashua was free of any fatalities, too Salem residents died of heart attacks while shoveling snow. They were Jerry .Houle, 56, and Charles Keene, 79, both of Salem. The latest victim was identi- fied as Dominique Ouillette, 74, of Manchester, who reportedly suffered a fatal heart attack Mon- day night while clearing snow with a jeep. Deaths of others have been attributed to clearing snow or succumbing to the storm in an- other way. The other storm victims Include Arthur Lattime, 62, of 'Raymond, stricken Monday while clearing snow; Harold Cady, 81, of Con- cord, grand secretary of the Grand Lodge of Masons of New Hamp- shire, who died Monday while shoveling snow; and Oscar Beau- doin, 59, of Manchester, found slumped dead in the middle of South Main Street in Manches- ter. Nashua's only storm-connected injury came when Michael Ges- naldo, 62, of Mulberry St., was taken to St. Joseph's Hospi- tal after he collapsed while shoveling snow. He was described as resting comfortably today. Department of Public Works crews today were continuing ef- forts to restore city streets to normal conditions, but were ham- pered by broken-down machinery and abandoned autos. A spokesman for the depart- ment reported they had cleared the majority of major streets, with "about ten" left for crews to clear. They described First and Second Streets as the worst for travel as of this morning, citing the cause for such condi- tions as a lack Of places to de-. posit snow. Rubbish Collections A Department official also an- nounced week-late rubbish collec- tions due to the storm. He said rubbish collection crews were aid- ing road crews in clearing city streets, and asked the cooperation of citizens in putting up with an extra week's supply of rubbish. The department said that small city streets clogged with snow would be cleared by front-end loaders as soon as possible. One of the city's snow-removal vehi- cles broke down yesterday. The break-down was cited as the rea- son snow could not be immediate- ly cleared from the middle of Main Street. Nashua Police reported no se- rious accidents yesterday and this morning, although they said they made an emergency run with a four-wheel-drive vehicle yesterday to take a baby stricken with pneumonia to the hospital. Peter George, a six-month old child, is listed in good condition in Memorial Hospital. Police re- moved him from his parent'! home at 19 Weslray Drive at P.M.

At p.m. yesterday, however, firemen answered a call to 30 East Dunstable Road, occupied by Jo- seph Simpson and his family when hot fat spilled on kitchen cabinets and set them ablaze.

The task force measure was up for review in the state Sen- ate today.

The second danger he elabo- rates upon is the result of drugs being obtainable only through the black market. "You never know the exact amount of intoxicating substance you are gelling in a marijuana cigarette or a drug tablet. It can vary tremendously, depending on the source.
