(AP Wirephoto) The state yesterday re- corded five accidental deaths, including that of Herbert A. 79, of West Broadway Street, Derry. The Derry man was killed in an auto-pedestrian accident near his home last night. He was the town's first highway fatality of the year. Other victims were: Mrs. Esther Rines, 71, of Lan- caster, who died in a two- car crash in'that town, and three Yale University stu- dents on a mountain-climb- ing expedition in Gorham. The students tumbled about feet down a steep, ice- covered slope to their deaths. Crossing Street According to Derry police, Rowell was killed as he crossed the street in front of his home at p- m. He was pronounced dead, on arrival'at the Alexander Eastman Hospital, Deny. Dr. Hugo Hochschild of North Hampton, Rockingham County as- sistant medical referee, attributed death to a fractured skull. Police identified the driver of the vehicle involved as Harold Cross', 40, of 83 Mayflower Drive, Manchester. v The two road deaths raised the stale's traffic toll to 12 this year. Mrs. Hines was killed at the intersection of Martin Meadow Pond Road and Route 3 in Lan- caster. She was alone in her car. The driver of the oilier ve- hicle was listed as Henry Binette, 34, of Exeter- Binette and a pas- senger, Stanley Fogg, 73, of Ex- eter, were injured. The three students were found Tuesday, -linked together by their climbing rope, in Huntinglon Ravine on the side of ML Wash- ington by an avalanche patrol- man, Ranger Rene La Roche. Identify Victims Slate police identified the vic- tims as Charles Yoder, 24, of Hartford, Wise.; Scot Stevens, 19, of Cucamonga, Calif., and Robert Ellenberg, 19, of New York City. Yoder was a graduate student and the other two undergradu- ates. Packs were torn from their backs and climbing irons ripped from their feet, apparently as they were battered in their de- scent, police reported. La Roche said he passed the ravine Monday about 10 a.m., but saw nothing. He said he found the bodies during an aft- ernoon patrol Tuesday. A Forest Service snow vehicle was sent to the base of the slope to bring out the .bodies. Dr. L.P. Beaudoin of Berlin said all three died instantly from multiple fractures and oth- er injuries. The three had registered Sun- day with the Appalachian: Moun- tain Club's Pinkham Notch Camp, saying they planned to be in the mountains until Thurs- day. A spokesman for the club said Huntington' Ravine was an area for technical with a number of challenging cliffs and rock faces, some of which were glazed with ice. It was believed to -be the worst climbing accident in the history of Mt. Washington. bodies were located, on ittt floor of the raviiie...about feet from the base "of the Cen- tral Gully in the headwati. U.S. Forest Ranger Rick Goodrich said they apparently slid that distance on the-sloping floor after plunging down the headwall. The gully is believed one.of the less severe parts of the headwall and often is used in descent by, climbers who have gone up by an. .even more'-diffi- cult route'. Hartz Fills BPW Defeats Hill By 10-6 Margin Prospects Rise For Task Force Bill By Adolphe V. Bernotas CONCORD, N. H. (AP) .Republican 1 e. a d e r s claimed to have a coalition of their majority forces and defecting Democrats strong enough to gain a clear vicy tory in today's House show- down on the bill to. create a citizens task force to study state governmental effectiveness. Cut To The lower chamber was mged by its powerful Appropriates; Committee tn pass an'amended version of Gov Waltei Peter- son's measure maiked down to a cut in the original money request The new Republican chief- ex- ecutive had assigned a top pri- ority to the plan he called the cornerstone of his piograin for good government. The'battle lines were drawn early as the GOP leaders whipped up backing for the measure. .Democratic leaders accused Peterson of trying to cloud the issue. "The effort to accuse the Democrats of playing politics is the oldest political maneuver known: Attack the opponent, gain, sympathy from party fol- lowers and draw attention away from the weaknesses and inade- quacies of the said a minority-party legislative spokesman. He added that the Democra- tic leadership, opposed the because it .is "too; too costly and too jather than opposing it on political giounds. However, it was Jearned.that. Rep Ernest Coutermarsh, D- Nashua, a top Democrat in the House, was to speak in favor of the measure. Observers felt that a coalition of admimstiation Republicans and defecting Democrats would carry the bill.

House, top-heavy With Republicans Peterson; made the statement only hours after he called Re- publican House members into caucus Tuesday afteinoon to talk about the bill Sources present at the caucus said no vote was taken of the 200 mem- bers present. Among other things, the Dem- ocrats have said Peterson's .bill is a ;bad one because the he had requested is not enough to do the kind of, survey he wants. .The Democrats said such a "millions '.of dollars." They also maintained there are enough studies avail- able to .show what's wrong with New Hampshire and that action is needed now, not when Peter- son recalls the legislature, into Teachers Guf Classes PLAISTOW, N.H. (AP) TimberJane Regional School Dis- trict teachers today took off a' "professional refused to report for classes in a salary dispute with the school board. The school board has wiped out a percentage increase clause in the proposal. A spokesman for the school dis- trict said this in effect gives raises to lower level teachers but not to those at the.higher levels. A spokesman .for the teachers said the board announced its to- tal budget before concluding ne- gotiations with the committee over annual increment rates, which could affect the bud- get. The district is made up of Plaistow, Danville, Sandown and' Atkinson. It. has stu- dents and 115 teachers.

A proposal that a "manage- ment personnel systems analy- sis" be undertaken instead was proposed by the minority party. However, Peterson replied that such a study is entailed in the general mission of- the task force. Oppose Measure Opposition to the measure has also been voiced from conserva- tive Republicans ,who see the plan as. a vanguard for a broad- based tax. They, feel the study will show the state needs such a tax. New Hampshire is the only remaining state without a tax on either all sales or all in- comes. Peterson said the Appropria- .tions Committee strengthened the bill. The. committee changed the date on which the task force is to report its recommenda- tions setting the deadline, or- iginally Sept. 15, at Nov. 1. The-revised measure spelled out where Peterson can seek as- sistance for the task force such as from the pool of state's classified and unclassi- fied employes.

The city's newest and young- est public works commissioner, Kenneth E. Hartz, got a taste one of the oldest and prick- liest problems facing the Board of Public. Works immediately after his election last night on a lfl-6 vote. After successfully besting for- mer City Engineer Joel B. Hill and -former Ward 4 Alderman Peter R. Cote for the BPW va- cancy, Hartz was sworn in by City Solicitor Arthur 0. Gorm- ley Jr. From there, he was whisked to the BPW board room to par- ticipate in the inconclusive Tay- lor's Falls Bridge discussion which had started earlier in the aldermanic chambers. Succeeds Bouchard Hartz, 33, succeeds Joseph A. Bouchard, 77, who resigned as public works commissioner Dec. 31 with one year remaining of his four-year term. Bouchard had served for 31 years. Victory came on the first bal- lot taken by the aldermen and the BPW, meeting in' joint con- vention. Voting for Hartz were Alder- men-at-Large Arthur H. Jean, John" V. Chesson, Maurice L. Arel, Aldermen Berlrand J. Bouchard, Charles E. Tlieroux, Barry L Cerier, Richard P. Joyce, Beb H. Cpu'termarsh, Donald-L. Ethier Mayor Dennis J. Sullivan, as chairman ex-officio of -the BPW. Backing Hill were Aldermen Edmond A. Dionne, Robert A. Dion, Raymond L. Bschard, Public Works Commissioners Laurier E. Saucy, Conrad H. Beliavance and Albert L. La- voie. Absent were Aldermen at- Large Maurice L. Bouchard and' Francis LaFlamme. Cote was nominated by Joyce but did not get any votes. Hartz was nominated by Bechard and Hill by Lavoie. On the onset of nominations, Ethier stated that former Pub- lic Works Commissioner How- ard March was not a candidate, contrary "to reports. Mayor Endorses In preliminary remarks to tiiS board, Sullivan endorsed Hartz for the post, noting the "har- mony" which has prevailed in the "transition period." He ap- parently was alluding to the recent appointment of a new city engineer and public works director; tq-.replace Hill who-.re- signed in September. Relations between Hill had been turbulent.

The resolution was unan- imously recommitted to the aldermanic planning com- mittee iristead of getting final approval as the com- mittee Had originally recommended. Study Contract And the committee was in- structed to study the contract specification being drawn up by, the Department of Public Works for obtaining bids- on trash collection. In lengthy discussion, Mayor J. Sullivan: said the fi- nance committee and the Board of Public Works had voted to invite bids. He gave no indica- tion the department intended to halt its bid preparation work in the' face of last nights action: Sullivan has long advocated putting out rubbish collections, to bid by private firms.. He maintains trash pickups by pri- vate, rather than m-u n i c i p a 1 crews would result in better service, at- lower costs. Alderman Barry L. Cerier began discussion bri the resolu- tion which was submitted to the aldermen five months ago by Sullivan. He was joined by Aldermen Robert A. Dion, Richard P. Joyce and Edmond A. Dionne. Cerier questioned the proce- dures to be used in securing bids and approving a contract. Alderman-at-Large Arthur H. Jean, planning committee chairman, said he was led to un- derstand by Sullivan that' the contract specifications were be- ing drawn up by Public Works Director Travis L. Petty and would, be checked out by City Solicitor Arthur 0. Gormley Jr. He added that he assumed the finance committee would open bids and make the final decision as to whether the city should have a private firm take over trash collections under contract. Cerier wondered "if a thing of this magnitude shouldn't re- turn to the entire aldermanic board" for a final decision. Sullivan said the DPW was not going about securing bids blindly. He said other towns having contracts with private disposal firms had been con- sulted, particularly Q u i n c y Mass. The contract 'being drawn up, he said, was from six to eight pages long and contained pro- visions "to protect the city from making a mistake." Should the winning firm be- come too independent and de- fault in its service, Sullivan said, the contract provides the city may engage another firm to do the work, at the other's expense. Specifications for bid submit- tal were being drafted, he said, both with the lake-over of the city's trash collection equip- ment and without. The specifications, he said, have been checked out by two men'in the mechanical division of the DPW and by two private disposal firms. "We have checked out every avenue available he said, adding that the decisions of the finance committee were auto- matically subject to approval- by the full aldermanic board. Joyce asked about, the effects of the .proposed change on the DPW.work tows: Shift Personnel No layoffs are anticipated, Sullivan said, emphasizing that rubbish collectors would transferred to other jobs with- in the department. He.said the BOARD DELAYS Page i Opposition Stops Filibustering Gag Record Numbers Apply at UNH DURHAM, N.H. (AP) High school seniors are apply- ing in record numbers for ad- mission to the University of New Hampshire system for next fall, the university said today. Officials reported a 30 per cent increase in applications as of this week for the Durham campus, while applications were up 15 per cent'at Plymouth Stale College and 13 per cent at Keene State College. Notes Increase Admissions Director Gene Savage said the applica- tions received at Durham are about 870 more than at the same time last year. They in- clude 678 more out-of-slate ap- plicants and 200 more applica- tions from New Hampshire youths. Under its early decision pro- gram UNH has already ad- mitted 262 of the approximately students who will comprise the freshman class next Sep- tember. Officials urged New Hamp- residents to file applica- tions as early as possible. Overall, the ;State university system expects a total full-time enrollment of about stu- dents next fall 930 more than the number enrolled this year. WASHINGTON (AP) fenders of the Senate's1 tradi- tional- filibuster rule have turned back the latest attempt to make it'easier to cut off de- bate. The action came despite i warning from Majority leader Mike Mansfield that in the not too distant future their victory may prove to have been a de- feat. Mansfield'said that at'today's session he would act to lay the issue aside or have it referred to the Rules Committee.. The latter course requires unani- mous consent. Appears Begiilarly An issue at the. start of each new Congress for the last II years, the fight over the infl-fil- Ibustcr rule reached Another crucial point Tuesday with second vole in three weeks on whether to cut off the debate, v The vote was 50-42 for ending the debate, 12 short of the, re- quired two-thirds majority..

The traditional filibuster rule requires a two-third majority, of senators voting to cut off debate on an issue. By staging a filibuster of sorts since Congress convened this year, the backers ofj tHe two-, thirds rule were able -to .prevent the Senate from voting on a mo- tion to consider shutting off de- bate by a three-fifths majority. Public Hearing On Streets Set Discontinuance of three streets will be considered at a public hearing Feb. 25 at 7-30 pm. in the aldermanic chambers.
