(Telegraphoto-Harri- gan) Judge Rules Against Nashua Dog Officer By CLAUDEPTE DUROCHER Dog Officer Adelard J. Landry is held personally responsible for the killing of an Amherst dog and a judgment of is dered against him in a rul- ing by Associate Justice Kenneth F. McLaughlin released today. City Cleared In his ruling, however, the Nashua District Court justice cleared the city from liability to the plaintiff for destruction of the dog, a German Shepherd named Tarzan. The plaintiff, Andrew J. Siko- ra of Amherst, had brought a suit against the city and Landry for the lulling -of Tar- zan. McLaughlin heard the'case May 21. In clearing the city of liability, McLaughlin cited higher court de- cisions which state that a munic- ipal corporation engaged in a governmental function is not liable for the torts of its agents or servants. To support his judgment against Neverett Land Plan Is Vetoed Mayor Dennis J. Sullivan has vetoed the bond issue resolution for purchase of the Neverett properties. "Having reviewed the.minutes of the meeting of the aldermanic lands and buildings committee, I find they do not contain enough information to assure me that the eity has need of the Sullivan said. He also stated that he does nol believe the city needs the prop- erties for expansion purposes, as he has not seen any plans regard- ing their use. Sullivan also said he disagreed with City Planner Fred D. Me Outchen's persona! opinion on the need to purchase the properties. "If the aldermen cannot see ex- pending to improve our eity tarage or to acquire plans for city facilities changes, how can they so readily embrace Ibis Sullivan said.

Decision Statements "The wrong which he (Landry) committed was not merely the result' of McLaugh- lin's decision states. "It was an Intentional wilfti wrong. Defendant Lahdry's in- tentional killing of Tarzan con- stituted an utter disregard for the plaintiff's proprietary rights to [he dog "Defendant Landry had no right to summarily kill the dog. Indeed, such action was in complete dis- regard of his statutory authority." Testifying at the hearing Sikora, said the dog had received ex- tensive training in disciplinary schools, including training from the French Foreign Legion. He said, the thoroughbred had served in the Algerian War, had a gift from his brother-in- law and had been flown to the United States at a cost of Sikora valued the dog at saying he had purchased an un- .rained puppy of similar breed in Europe for The dog, he said, was housed in a kennel made out of .chain link fence six feet high and during the early hours.of Nov. 2, 1968, a thunderstorm startled the dog and caused him to jump over the mce. At a.m. Nov. 2, the Nash- ua police department received a call from the.Family Sport Cen- ,er on Amherst Street indicating j they had a German Shepherd dog outside their front door. Landry testified that at about that same morning, in sponse to a call from the police, he went to the Family Sport Cen- ter and was shown the dog which was now in the back room of ffie store being fed by the employes. He also testified that the dog's coat was thick and well-groomed and the animal "looked to me like a pretty good German Shepherd." In Back of Truck Landry said he put the dog in the back of his truck to take it back to Nashua. He said he hooked up the carbon monoxide apparatus and within 15 minutes after picking up the dog, the an- imal was dead.

The withdrawals would total to men.

Primary Bid NEW YORK (AP) In a mayoral primary that echoed a trend set in Los Angeles and Minneapolis conservatives wrested the Republican nomina- tion from Mayor John V. Lind- say and wrecked former Demo- cratic Mayor Robert F. Wag- ner's comeback bid Tuesday. Lindsay, who will be on the November ballot as Liberal par- ly candidate, was narrowly de- feated by a little-known state senator from Staten Island, John J. Marchi, who also has the Conservative party nomina- tion. The final unofficial count was to Wagner lost to Italian-born City Comptroller Mario A. Pro- cacdno, who rejected the label of "law-and-order candidate" but was the most conservative in a five-man Democratic field. He won with only about a third of the vote. Bronx Borough President Her- man Badillo, who was born in Puerto Rico, ran a close third. Author Norman Mailer and Rep. James H. Scheuer trailed. The vote was Procaccino Wagner Badillo Mailer Scheuer Lindsay assailed the "forces of reaction and backlash" that he said had taken "temporary" control of both parties in the city. "There is a mood of hostility in this city and Lindsay said, "but before November the mood of reason will return." Wagner also deplored the election results, commenting: "We hope we do not have here another Los Angeles or Minne- apolis."

That's what! Member, F.D.I.C. stressed the "law and order" is- sue. In a mayoral election in Min- neapolis last week, former po- lice Detective Charles Stenvig defeated liberal Republican Dan Cohen. Stenvig had focused his campaign on the "law and or- der" issue. The GOP defeat was a severe blow to the party prestige of Lindsay, who last year was con sidered a possible contender for the national ticket. However, it did not knock the 47-year-old mayor out of conten- tion for re-election to a second term in November. In a city that is 7-2 Democratic in voter registration, he will be the most liberal candidate in the three- man field.

A soft-spoken man, Marchi has been in the state legislature since 1956 and has a strong civil rights record. Marchi said he had been nom- inated by "a. clear majority" of Republicans. He said he wel- comed th'e support of all parties. Procaccino, 59, is the son of an Italian shoemaker who moved to New York and set up shop in Harlem. The son went to City College and Fordham Law School, and rose through the ranks in city service. Wagner appointed Procaccino a city judge shortly before he was elected comptroller in 1965. His main campaign theme was "safety in the but he rejected complaints by Wagner and Badillo that he was appeal- ing to racial bigotry. He called himself a moderate with liberal leanings and said he didn't want the backlash vote. FOTOMART HAS POLAROID Color-Pak II Charge It BukAmericard Unl-Card FOTOMART CAMERA Corp. 178 MAIN ST.

If North Vietnam, becomes persuaded of this, the hope is that it will agree, formally or tacitly, to a mutual withdrawal plan that would see the bulk of both North Vietnamese arid American troops: out of South Vietnam at a much faster rate than under unilateral United States withdrawals. But if Hanoi refuses to con- sider mutual reductions, the strategy looks loward removal of American troops over the next three years, leaving behind "indefinitely" enough of a force to so bolster South Viet- namese' troops that they could contend with anything the en- emy could throw at them.

LEUBSDORF WASHINGTON (AP) _ The Senate is headed toward ap- proval, of a federal spending veiling of billion, some billion below both President Nixon's budget and a ceiling passed earlier by the -House. Both ceilings are flexible, however. The issue is likely to provide the major conflict between the wo Houses as Congress strives to complete action by June 30 on supplemental appropriations )ill, the final money measure 'or the fiscal year ending on that date. The Senate's J4.4 billion ver- sion of the bill is about mil- ion more than the House meas- ire. The billion spending ceil- ng was devised by the Senate Appropriations Committee un- der the leadership of Sen. Rob- ert C. Byrd, D-W. Va., chairman man of its supplemental sub- committee. An effort by Sen. John J. Wil- liams, R-Del., to tighten the ceiling was defeated Tuesday 79 to 16. Williams .also planned to try to eliminate from the bill a pro- vision repealing the ceiling en- acted last year, oh federal em- ployment. The- Nixon adminis- tration favors repeal. Several other amendments also remained- for consideration today, including one by Sens. Jacob K. Javits, R-N.Y., Gay- lord Nelson, D-Wis., Alan Crans- ton, D-Calif., and Edward W. Brooke, R-Mass., to add million to the million ap- proved by the Appropriations Committee for the Neighbor- hood Youth Corps' summer jobs program in urban ghettoes. The spending ceiling in the bill starts at billion below the House and ad- ministration brings this up to billion by ex- empting a number of programs where actual spending is either uncontrollable due to law or un- forseeable such as the Vietnam war. The exemptions include such things as farm price supports, public assistance and medicaid, social security and other retire- ment programs, vocational re- habilitation payments, costs of Congress and the federal judi- ciary, veterans benefits and in- terest on the national debt. The House bill sets the spend- ing ceiling at the budget level but 'provides that it would change every -time Congress' re- duces or increases -an appropri- ations bill, or votes a 'supple-' mental money measure.. -'_. Thus, by its own subsequent action, Congress could at- any time lift spending Testfictidhs; for a given agency. Byrd said his proposal re- quires a ?5 billion cut in what are termed "controllable-items" such as the billion in non- Vietnam defense spending and the billion in other federal programs. Last year.Congress .voted a billion spending cut which waj carried out by the Johnson ad- ministration. It was offset, .however, by a billion ncrease in the exempted items.-- TONIGHT IN THE TELEGRAPH Abby 13 Classifieds 44, 45, .46, 47 Comics Crossword Editorial Financial Horoscope Lawrence 4 Nashua Scene 4 .17 Obituaries Pearson Sports' 1 4 22, 23 Suburban Sulzburger Taylor Television Theaters Dr. Thosteson 31 Weather 13 4 23 42 Killed In Arab Shelling This is the wreckage of taxis hit The dead woman was identified SM by Iraqi artillery shells in Kallia, a Shirley Anderson, 25, York town in Israeli-occupied Jordan.
