Sullivan said today he has reserva- tions about the purchase of the Neverett properties on Garden Street but is unde- cided about vetoing the pur- chase bond issue resolution. Bond Issue The bond issue resolu- tion was approved by the alder-, men last Tuesday with Alderman- at-Large Maurice L. Bouchard casting the only negative vote. Sullivan said he .believed the proposal had not received suffi- cient public discussion prior to the vote. And he said that the asking price for the property, seems high to him. If the properties are to be razed for parking purposes, Sullivan added, the downtown merchants who-favor, the purchase. should be asked to share some of the costs. He said he may reveal his in- tentions on the measure at a meeting of the. Greater Nashua Chamber of Commerce directors tonight. City Hall Expansion The bond issue resolution approved by the aldermen states that the properties, which consist of a vacant brick car dealer ga- rage, a frame house and a park- ing lot, are to be used for City Hall expansion and for. parking facilities. Sullivan said the cost of reno- vating the garage for City Hall of- fices may prove more expensive than anticipated.

Missile Program Ignites Mclritvre Brooke New French President Pledges Liberal Policy By HARVEY HUDSON PARIS (AP) serving 25 years in the shadow of Gen. Charles de Gaulle, teacher a former schoo called Georges Pompidou will succeed the general as 'president pf France. A Though pramlsihg (idtelity the policies of De Gaulle, Pom pidou has pledged to be more liberal, particularly' in foreign affairs, and promised to enlarge his government to bring in new faces and ideas.. His personal style also is ex peeled to be less grating to friends and allies than De Gaulle's often high-handed, un compromising manner. One of Pompldou's first acts as president is expected to the appointment of Jacques Chaban-Delmas .as premier Chaban-Delmas has been one 01 De Gaulle's most faithful sup- porters since World War II days and president of the Nallona Assembly since 1952. The victory had been widely Forecast and was never in doubt from the minute the first re- turns came in Sunday. Fired as De Gaulle's premier a yea'r ago, Pompidou, rolled up a bigger margin in: Sunday's election :hah .the general himself gained in the 1965 presidential election. Official returns for all of met- ropolitan France and part of the overseas areas gave Pompidou J7.78 per cent of the total, while us main opponent; interim President Alain Poher, got 412 per cent. But about 31 per cent of the 29.5 million registered voters stayed away from the double the num- >er who abstained three years ago.. Poheiv who stepped into the Elysee Palace when De.

West, president land, cabled: "For all national and personal reasons, I send you my most cordial congratii lations." Pompidou announced: "The vote today seems to me to con slitute a consolidation and even a-consecration of this great re- form, that we owe to Gen. de Gaulle." the Constitutional Council is scheduled to officially proclaim the results of the election Thurs- day night and Pompidou will as- sume the presidency Friday There will be no formal.swear ing-in ceremony, but Poher said he would be on hand to welcome Pompidou to the Elysee Palace Pompidou is expected to an- nounce his complete cabinet list Friday or Saturday. The Communist party had called for the boycott after the first round of presidential bal- loting June 1 when Pompidou and Poher finished ahead of five other candidates. In that round Communist candidate Jacques Duclos got 21 per cent of the vote. Pompidou, the grandson of farmers.and the son of a school teacher, was teaching school in Paris when a friend nominated him for a job on De Gaulle's staff when the general headed the provisional government aft- er the liberation of France. After De Gaulle retired to his country home in eastern France in 1946, Pompidou kept in touch and was entrusted with a num- ber of confidential missions. Pompidou went at the Rothschild Bank ;and rose to a top administrative position. When De Gaulle returned to of- fice in 1958, he brought back Pompidou as head of his person- al de ing the seven months De Gaulle served as premier, while the constitution of .the. Fifth Repub- lic: was being prepared and ap- proved, i When De Gaulle moved in as president in 1959, Pompidou went back to the bank, but he was still close to the president. In 1962, Pompidou was named premier. At .that time he was a political unknown, had never been elected to any public office but was pictured as a man who had De Gaulle's confidence and could be counted on for unflag- ging loyalty to his boss.- Pompidou Greeted French President-elect Georges Pompidou (left) and his wife Claude are surrounded by well-wishers after he was elected to succeed Charles deGaulle.
