Nixon, 12 weeks of methodical, calm preparation come today to an and four years of power begin at noon on Monday. The days of transition, from the triumph of election to the responsibilities of inauguration, have been typical Of Nixon's latter-day style: orderly, always cautious, fre- quently silent. be a less personalized presiden- Few Mistakes There have been few mis- steps; generally the at Nix- on headquarters, in the ornate, expensive Hotel. Piene, hai been one of quiet, tometimei bland, competence. Seldom has there been even hint of drama. Nixon tssociates report tht period between presidencies hai been narked by full cooperation with tht outgoing political ad- versary. And when citizen Nixon raised his champagne glass in a final, preinaugural toast to the Presi- dent of the United States, it waf with words of praise for Lyndon B. Johnson as a man who has worked as hard at his job as sny who ever held 'the White House. As President-elect, Nixon avoided anything that would seem an attempt to propel him- self past Johnson and into the role of national spokesman prior to his inauguration. He'decided at the outset; for example, that there would be no general news conference until after Jan. 20. Nixon felt Johnson would regard that as an attempt to seize in advance the stage of presidential .publicity. He re- marked privately that Johnson was a bit sensitive on such mat- ters. From the evidence compiled it the Hotel Pierre, Nixon's will Weekend Stock Lists [Teen-Age. Pogef Extra Comics cy than those of Johnson and the late John F. Kennedy. Nixon has put his emphasis on staff men and staff work. He assembled a team of what he called generaiists; hi effect, utility men equipped to fill variety of assignments. It soon became evident that in the Nixon lineup, one man foremost among generalists: H.R. "Bob" Haldeman, quiet, crew cut, former Los advertising man, veleran politi- cal ally. Haldeman's' title Is assistant to' the President, but he has emerged as something of a chief of staff, the job he held during the presidential campaign. Three of the men Nixon named to his Cabinet loom as dominant figures, too. In each case, a close friend- ship with Nixon enhances the man's credentials. The three: of State-designate William P. Rogers, long a col- league and political counselor. His association with the Presi- dent-elect dates back to the era of the Alger Hiss investigation, two decades ago. He has been al Nixon's side at virtually every crucial moment of his political career. Gen.-designale John N. Mitchell, a former law part- ner. He has known Nixon only about two has the ab- solute confidence of the Presi- dent-elect. Mitchell was the ma- jor, recruiter of Cabinet-level talent and a constant adviser during the transition. He served as Nixon's presidential cam- paign manager. H. Finch, who will be secretary of health, educa-. tion 'and welfare, is a prolege- who. became a colleague. He once was an administrative as- sistant to .Nixon, managed his losing, 1960 presidential cam- paign. Finch was said to be the man Nixon would have pre- ferred as a vice presidential partner in 1968, but for the polit- ical impracticality of that line- up. In domestic affairs, Finch is likely to be the man to see dur- ing the1 Nixon presidency. Soviets Complete Space Experiments MOSCOW (AP) Cosmonaut Boris Volynov landed safely in the Soviet Union today, success- fully completing a four-man mission in which the Soviet Un- ion achieved the .world's first crew transfer between orbiting. spaceships.

Two of them, Alexei Yeliseyev and Yevgeny Khrunov, had made space walks Thursday from Vo- lyhov's craft lo join Vladimir Shatalov aboard Soyuz 4. Tass said a breaking rocket on Volynov's spaceship was fired at a predetermined time and the craft descended into tht slowed by para- chutes. Apparently using the landing technique as Soyuz 4, the Soyuz 5 separated into two. sections during the landing, Tass said. Volynov was aboard, the crew capsule, while the working quarters In a section called the orbital compartment descended separately.- The flight, of Soyuz 5 lasted 7J hours 46 .minutes. Counting Hit launching of Soyuz 4 on Tues- day, the entire mission lasted M .hours 21 minutes. Western experts have ac- claimed the Soyuz step toward assembly of perma- nent space stations and orbiting where scientists and cosmonauts can be ferried back and forth from earth. Foreign commentators also have noted the military value of permanent manned earth satel- lites. In addition lo the world's first crew transfer, the mission also achieved the first docking of two manned orbiting spacecraft: The United States pioneered docking techniques years ago with its manned Gemini craft, but they linked only with un- manned ships. Real Negotiations In Peace Parley Start Next Week Oblivion The Williams mansion, a Temple Street landmark of a bygone era, is being razed to make way for a new Nashua Credit Bureau office building. The house was formerly owned by Mrs. Charles Williams of Concord Street. She is the widow of Charles Williams, a descendant of the Williams family who start- ed a foundry across the street from the house in 1845. The ladle in the fore- ground was used to pour molten iron, but was discarded, according to legend, after a worker fell into it. The ladle served for .years as a flower planter and a credit bureau spokesman said it will be retained as an accent piece for the new office building.

A proposed budget of has been submitted to Mayor Dennis J. Sullivan and the alder- men. by Fire Commission e r's Jph'ri.'H. Roland F. LaRose and Leo 0. Carle..

The budget proyides for the department's' employes to ad- vance, to the next higher salary step listed in the Yarger job 1 classification and. pay plan. A step advance represents a wage hike of about five per cent.''A similar request last year was -rejected by -Sullivan, and led to a protracted feud with the aldermen who in late sum- mer, approved a step increase for all employes under their ju- risdiction, including firemen. Sullivan has not said what line he will take this year on wage increases. Chief Albert L. Tanguay's salary would be boosted two steps, instead of one, in the budget presented by the com- missioners. His present salary of would rise to if the two- step increase is permitted. "We have raised the -chief's salary to Step E of the Yarger the commissioners slate, "because we. feel this man puts In many hours .during the year that he is not compensated for. His job is operated.on the fact that he-is available'at all times, or the.deputy chief :in charge'in Ms absence, knows, he can be reached. Cities Compared feel that by comparison with other.chiefs in cities the size of Nashua tliat the salary we are proposing for our chief is not out of line, especially when one his record which shows 30 years, in the service of the Nashua Fire .De- partment with 12 years a s chief." A fire fighter now getting (lie maximum of would re- ceive with the step, in- crease proposed. To get the maximum Step F a fire- fighter must have been on the force-at least six years. Newly hired fire figh t e r s would be started on the step, the minimum salary on the six-step wage range for pri- vates designated by the Yarger survey for fire fighters. The job of dispatcher would be upgraded by one labor grade in the budget -proposed, from 19 to 20. The minimum maximum range for grade 19 is to Under grade 20, the range for dispatchers would be to "We are requesting a raise in grade from 19 to 20 for the reason that it is getting in- creasingly difficult to interest men to become (lie commissioners said. "One drawback lo llris-.type of work is the responsibility a man must assume, in this post which is the. heart of the, .fire department operations, -It most desirable that a dispatch- er .have some prior fire fight- ing experience, and we feel that upgrading this.job will create an incentive for some of- our 1 men to train as dispatchers." Abandon Station Under building repairs, the commissioners have al 1 o w e d for the repair and modi- fication of the Amherst Street Station in the event the depart- ment must abandon the Central fire station to make way for-the new library and the arts and science center. The repairs' would include the replacement of windows, laying a concrete floor in the appara- tus room and other repairs of a minor nature. In addition, the sum of is allotted for the repair of the Lake Street station. Of this, would be used to install a new concrete floor and new overhead doors, one of which .would be widened to accommo- date a ladder truck to be as- signed there when the planned Northeastern Boulevard station. is available. A thorough checkup for the 1 Lake Street station hea ting plant is needed, the commis- 'sioners'nole, and there is'a-pos- sibility a new boiler will be needed. The 1.00-foot aerial- ladder truck is on order from Mack Trucks and Tanguay noted that it slfll remains ;to be decided whether.the needed to buy it will he appropriated in the fire department budget; in the capital' improvements sec- tion ot the municipal budget; or raised by bond issue. If the new car requested is bought, it will be used by the chief. His car would be turned over to the fire prevention bu- reau to permit the expansion of the bureau staff.' With the change in wages, the FIRE DEI'T. BUDGET Page I cedural discussion and concen- trate on "mattes of substance" next week. Col Ha Van Lau announced the proposal during a 25-minute .coffee break VA hours after talks began involving his dele- gation and those of the United States, South Vietnam and the Viet Cong's National Liberation Front. He said "I propose that the procedural points already agreed upon for the first session be used for all sessions to come." This is what the United States had hoped for. If. Hanoi's pro- posal is adopted, it means the conference can get down to dis- cussing terms for peace in Viet- nam without haggling over pro- cedural matters. Lau listed four recommenda- tions.- "1. The number of persons from each delegation to partici- pate in the plenary sessions will not exceed 15. "2. Al! press, radio-and televi- sion to be admitted for 15 min- utes before the start of the first plenary session. "3. The plenary session of the conference for substantive dis- cussions will be held early next week in the international confer- ence (ienler. "4. In view of the greater number of persons, the French government shall be requested lo put at our disposal the big hall." A bigger hall' is available at Ihe conference center at the for- mer Hotel Majestic. But.Lau's statcmenl did not rule prospect of hard bargaining. '.Lau made clear., when he appended to his propos- als the statement, "we reject all ideas according to which this conference would be a two-party or a two-sided conference." Both'North' Vietnam and the NLF insist that these are four- sided talks, implying independ- ent and equal status for tin Front. The Americans and South Vietnamese insist tht talks represent two sides in a two-sided war. They say the NLF is a tool of Hanoi.- It was obvious the North Viet- namese had moved faster than Ihe Americans expected. Calling a substantive session next week could entail problems, since tin new chief negotiator represent- ing the Nixon administration, Henry Cabot Lodge, may not bt able to arrive that early. 'After the coffee break the delegates returned to their round conference table, about 15 feet in diameter with two rec- tangular secretarial lables on opposite sides. The Hanoi statement included attacks on the Americans and South Vietnamese, but seemed more restrained than those of the past.' Lau accused the Americans of having failed to live up to their Oct.. 31 agreement lo. open "four-sided" talks. He said Sai- gon placed obstacles in the way of beginning the talks for the past two months. Yet there was a faint, hint in his statement, that-Hanoi might accept survival of Ihe Saigon government in a settlement. Lau said that if the United States and South Vietnam really wanted peace, the Americans must renounce "their scheme of aggression" and .the Saigon ad- ministration "must renounce Its bellicose policy." Lau's statement'failed to tho usual terms in referring-to. the Saigon government ,as' pup- -pcts, nor contain .the usual vituperative words applied to (he Americans. He did repeat, that in Hanoi's view, the North Vietnamese and SLF delegations are separate and in- dependent entities, and that, tht front is the "authentic repre- sentative of the South Viet- namese people." U.S. Global Satellite Systems Will Aid Men on Battlefield By WALTER SULLIVAN Nsw York Timei NIWI serviii WASHINGTON- The United States is quietly developing global satellite systems for both tactical and strategic military communications.

By early 1971, it is planned lo have several additional satel- lites of this system in syn- chronous orbit over the equator. In such an orbit, the satellite is far enough above die earth that its orbital motion matches the earth's rotation. Hence it hovers over, the same spot. These satellites will beam their transmissions towards the earth-and will also have special narrow-beam antennas that, on radio command, can be aimed at specific areas one or two thousand miles in diameter. such station will be able 19 handle "hundreds" of voice channels on its broad-beam sys- tem, plus additional "hundreds" of voice channels via its nar- row beam.

The irmed services are also work- Ing on portable units for jeeps, aircraft and ships.
