Leach, member of the Hud- son Budget Committee, com- pares costs of teacher salary proposals between his group and the School Board. In his report, he. lists esti- mated costs covering the pay proposals as advanced by the two town bodies. Leach said: "At the present time a teach- er in the Hudson school system with a bachelor's degree, with no experience has .a minimum starting annual salary of If you use 40 weeks as a basis for arriving at a weekly salary, the following schedule can be obtained.

MORE SNOW FOR NASHUA Another winter storm began trundling across New England today, depositing a mixture, of snow, sleet and freezing rain on the Nashua area. The weather bureau said the precipitation is the result of a slow-moving and rather weak low pressure system moving north- eastward along the coast. The system is expected to slide off the coast by evening. Forecasts call for relatively mild temperatures, and .gentle northeasterly winds. Though the snowfall is expected to total two to four inches in most areas of New England, the weather bureau predicted that the Nashua could be blanketed with as much as six inches. "Actually, the school year consists of 180 working days (35 In Hudson, a teach- er is signed to a contract for 185 working days (37 weeks) and thus we shall assume that three weeks of paid vacation.time is Included within our 40 week basis.

Ed degree. "A quick evaluation may lead you to believe that the School Board and the Budget Commit- tee are in reasonably close agreement because of only a S300 difference in the minimum anounts. "As far as the minimums go, this is true. There is only a small difference. "The Budget Committee rec- ommendations will provide raises between and per week for teachers on the salary schedule.

He was obviously referring to to the current diplomatic flare- up between England and France over a European plan said to haye been proposed by Presi- dent de Gaulle. The Pope also rejected con- cepts of European unity based on "the precarious equilibrium of which is "founded, on the balance of de- fensive or, offensive forces" or based on "the indifference of purely neutral isolationism." Speaking from the window of his private study to about persons in St. Peters Square, the Pope opened his address by calling for prayers for Europe. He said that .within the "geo; graphic term" of Europe "the theme of the present his- toric hour" were the elements of a secular tradition, "deter- mining for modern civilization and for that of the future." By FRANK CORMIER BRUSSELS (AP) President Nixon told Amer- ica's European allies today that he later will "enter into negotiations with the Soviet Union on a 'wide range of and he promised to consult iwth them before and after the talks. Tells Of Talks Nixon, in a the council of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization during the first stop of his eight-day Euro- pean trip, did not' hedge about prospects for eventual Soviet- American talks. He said there will be negotiations "in due .course, and with proper prepa- ration." The President made no men- tion of two crises of paramount concern to the Atlantic allies: the new dispute between the British and French govern- ments, and the possibility of an East-West confrontation in Ber- lin. Instead, with the aim of revi- talizing the Atlantic alliance, he emphasized a'pledge that "the United States is determined to listen with new attentiveness to its NATO partners." To underscore this policy dec- laration, he said that because American-Soviet talks would di- rectly affect the nations of Western Europe, the- United States will approach Moscow "on the basis of full consultation and cooperation with our allies, because we recognize that the chances for successful negotia- tions depend on our unity." He went on: "I realize, that this course has. not always been followed in the past. But I pledge to you today, that in any negotiations directly affecting the interest of the NATO nations, there will be full 'and genuine'consultation before and during those negotiations." Nixon said he knew the allies had felt "that too often the Unit- ed States talked at Its partner! instead of with them, or merely informed them of decisions aft- er they were made instead of consulting with them before de- ciding." "The United States is deter- mined to listen with a new at- tentiveness to Its NATO part- he declared, "not only because they have a right to be heard but because we want their ideas. And I believe we have a right to that con- sultation shall be a two-way 'street." Summarizes Approach Summarizing the approach hs wants to take in his European meetings, he said: "I have for" work, not for ceremo- I ny; to inquire, not to insist; to consult, not convince; to listen and learn, and to begin what I hope will be a continuing inter- change of ideas and insights." Whi'e House Press Secretary Rona'.d L. Ziegler was asked if Nixon had discussed with Bel- gian officials the latest chill in British-French relations, and he replied: "I don't have any infor- mation on that." In London Tonight Nixon flies to London tonight for talks with Prime Minister Harold Wilson, and after visits to Bonn, West Berlin and Rome will go to Paris Friday to meet with President Charles de Gaulle. Ziegler said Nixon, during his trip is keeping close- ly abreast of latest reports from South Vietnam, where a new wave of enemy attacks has been launched, apparently to bolster the Communist position at the Paris peace talks. Nixon, discussing the country- wide rocket and mortar attacks Sunday, indicated to newsmen during his flight from Washing- ton that in some circumstances such assaults could result in an American countermove. White House sources said the President had ordered a careful study of the attacks, one pur- pose being to determine wheth- er they violated the secret un- derstandings with North Viet- nam under which the United States halted the bombing of the North. But these sources em- phasized Nixon would move with caution and was "not look- ing for an excuse to do some- thing." The sources obviously were referring to a resumption of the bombing of North Viet- nam. The President also was get- ting- frequent reports from Washington on the condition of former President Dwight D. Ei- senhower. Arriving in Brussels Sunday night under a half moon in 43 degree weather, Nixon was greeted by King Baudouin, a military honor guard, several hundred enthusiastic citizens and a small but noisy group of demonstrators who chanted "Nixon go home" from the ter- minal roof. Three of the demon- strators were arrested following scuffles with police. The chant was undoubtedly audible to the President, but he kept smiling and paid no attention to the ruckus, which ended as soon as he began to speak to his wel- comers. Later in the evening, follow- ing a half-hour private meeting with the king, Nixon spent 20 minutes with Premier Gaston Evskens and Foreign Minister Pierre Harmel. Ziegler said top- ics covered included "NATO in general, military problems in relation to the alliance" and the broad field of East-West rela- tions. He said Nixon was "deep- ly impressed by the substance of the Ike Operation Successful Nashua Probation Office Will be Closed by State Rep. Roland LaPlante (D-Ward chairman of the Nashua dele- gation to the legislature, said -he is disturbed about reports that the state will close the probation office in Nashua and transfer all operations to Manchester. The closing was confirmed by a staff member of the probation office. But neither Richard M. Brewster, probation officer in charge of the Nashua office, nor John A. King, state probation di- rector, was immediately avail- able to discuss details. LaPlante said the closing comes on the heels of an attempt by i Manchester legislator to have all' Superior Court sessions held in Manchesetr. "It's beginning to look like the Manchester delegation wants to have ali court-related activities centered in the new county court- house building in remarked LaPlante. Serving on the. three-man state probation board is Leonard G. Velishka who also was unavail- able for comment. The Nashua office, serving southern Hillsborough County, is situated at 215A Main St. An of- fice in Manchester serves the northern part of the. county. Central Switchboard System for City Mali Weighed By CLAUDETTE DUROCHER Installation of a central switchboard for municipal de- partments would cost more- in monthly telephone charges. The current monthly tele- phone charges paid by the city amount to 5376 and with the proposed system they would be Figures for installation of a central switchboard were re- quested by Mayor Dennis J. Sul- livan with the approval of the Board of Aldermen. Sullivan said he felt a. central switchboard system would expe- dite calls to proper depart- ments. "As it is he said, "per- sons calling up for information or to register a complaint usual- ly get the wrong department on the first try because they don't know exactly which department handles what.

Sullivan presented the figures to the aldermen at a budget hearing last week but no action was taken pending further study. -He also asked Chief Albert L. Tanguay if the fire department could be tied into the central switchboard system. But Tanguay said he din1 not think the arrangement would be advisable for his department be- cause of the emergency. nature of calls received and the pres- ent telephone tie-ins with the de- partment's communication sys- tems. WASHINGTON (AP) Emergency stomach surgery on former President Dwight D. Ei- senhower, complicated by his age and repeated heart attacks, was pronounced successful to- day by a team of Army doctors, A report' issued at Walter Reed Army Hospital shortly aft- er midnight omitted any indica- tion of the 78-year-old five-star general's chances for recovery. But use of the word "success- fully" was taken to mean that Eisenhower, who six months 3go had appeared near death, was not in imminent danger. President Nixon, in Brussels on the first stop of his five-na- tion Western European tour, was described as "pleased" with the report. Aides said he was being kept constantly in- formed of the condition of the man whom he served as vice president, for eight years. The two-hour and 20-mlnute operation, performed by a sev- en-member surgical team, had been accepted "with equanimi- ty" by Eisenhower and his wife, Mamie. She had rushed to the hospital earlier Sunday from their farm home in Gettysburg, Pa. Eisenhower also had been vis- ited by his son John before undergoing delicate operation described by one authority as a "terrible risk for a man of his age and medical history. The condition was first report- ed Saturday night; but the deci- sion to operate was not an- nounced until shortly before' 8 p.m. Sunday. Official Report It was hours later that. Brig. Gen. Frederick J. Hughes Jr., commanding officer of the hospital where Eisenhower has been bedridden in the third-floor presidential suite since May, went before newsmen to say: "Gen. Eisenhower underwent surgery for intestinal obstruc- tion this evening. The procedure began at p.m. and termi- nated successfully at p.m. The obstruction was found to be due to two large adhesive bands resulting from previous sur-. gery." The five-paragraph state- ment, steeped in medical termi- nology and naming members of the surgical team, boiled down to a report that surgeons had cut through scar tissue blocking Teocfiers Shovel Parking Lot These teachers at Nashua High School were among snow are, left to right: George May, Mrs. Shirley Green- those who turned out to stage a protest with shovels. They complained that neither the school nor the. city will take responsibility for clearing the teacher's park- ing lot on Otterson Street, and said that only one quar- ter of the lot is clear for parking.

During the hours-long black- out newsmen never knew wheth- er Eisenhower was on the oper- ating table or riot. Maj. George Foster, hospital .public informa- tion officer, gave the first clue that the former president had survived when he introduced Hughes by saying: "Good News" "Gentlemen, Gen. Hughes has some good news for you." Eisenhower con tinued an almost incredible string of triumphs over medical adver- sity that has included seven ma- jor heart a cerebral stroke, gall bladle, an appendec- tomy and an operation for ilei- tis. Hughes refused to answer any question or to elaborate in any way on his early-morning state ment, read from the stage of the hospital's Red Cross building which is used as a recreation hall by hundreds of. Vietnam war casualties. Eisenhower's doctors said the decision to go ahead with sur- gery was made after efforts to alleviate the intestinal obstruc- tion by nonsurgical maens, in- cluding insertion of a rubber suction tube through Eisenhow- er's nose down into his intesti- nal tract. While Gen. Hughes did not specifically say so, his report in- dicated that the obstruction oc- curred in the small tube more than 20 feet long ar- ranged in loops inside the ab- dominal cavity and playing major role in the body's diges- tion of foods. Eisenhower has been in Wal- ter Reed since May 14 and then has had three heart tacks, the last Aug. 16. Several months ago Heaton told newsmen at the White House that Eisenhower was making a "miraculous" recov- ery and subsequent reports from the hospital told of slow but encouraging progress. For'a time'last summer Ei- senhower was not allowed to watch television, but in recent weeks he apparently has been quite active. He has correspond- ed, for one thing, .with French" President Charles de Gaulle and in recent days received from Gaulle a letter important enough to prompt Eisenhower telephone President Nixon. He also has had several visits from Nixon and from former President Johnson, Hearing Tonight On City's Future Nashua's and long-range, will be explored at a public hearing tonight in the City Hall auditorium .at The session will be..conducted by the- Planning Board.
