Large Slice The committee cut a total of almost million from the Sen- ate's last budget proposal, the largest slice coming from the Senate recommendation for the state university system. The compromise figure for the next two fiscal years was announced late Tuesday night by House Speaker Marshall Cobleigh after the eight-mem- ber conference committee of Senate and House members boosted from 10 to 15 per cent to provide million which Peterson said would balance the budget and pave the way for the legislature to adjourn next-week.

SEMPLE JR. York Tlmii Niwt Service WASHINGTON President Nixon has reportedly decided to nominate Dr. John H. Knbwles, :he subject of bitter controversy lere. for the past five months, :o what is perhaps the most im- portant medical job in govern- ment. There was no o f f i c i a 1 an- nouncement from the White House, but .the evidence pro vided here by the Department of Health, Education, and Wei- fare, by White House sources, and by Knowles'; most out- spoken Everett Me- Kiriley Dirkseh of Illinois all pointed to Knowles' nomination later'this week, At his news conference last Thursday, Nixon committed himself to a decision on the matter this week, and the .ex- pectation was that he would Forward the Knowles nomina- tion'to the Senate Thursday or Friday. The break in the months-long impasse would be a victory for Robert H. Finch, Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare, who held out for Knowles as'his chief assistant in the health field, and a defeat for the lead- ership of the American Medical Association and for Dirksen, the Senate minority leader, who fought the choice. .Dirksen opposed the nomina- tion because he shared the AMA's objections to Knowles' liberal attitudes towards gov- ernment-aided medical care and because he thought that organ- ized medicine should be able to choose its own man. Finch went to Capitol Hill, conferred privately with Dirk- sen, then emerged to tell men that he was submitting a recommendation for the vacant post of Assistant Secretary for Health and Scientific Affairs. He did not say that the recom DR. JOHN H. mendation would be post on Jan. a close as- sociate of Finch said later: "He's still our man." There is some chance, o! course, that Nixon might refuse approve and forward the nomination to the Seriate. But this would be a spectacular em- barrassment to Finch, an old friend and confidante; arid high White House sources indicated that the President would already Had to his secretary's wishes to ap- point Knowles, the 42-year old general administrator of Mas- sachusetts General Hospital in Boston.

Electronics Firm Acquires Property in Londonderry LONDONDERRY Charles H. Hall, chairman of the London- derry Housing Authority an- nounced the completion of trans- action, with Microwave Develop- ment Laboratories of Needliam Heights, Mass., for the sale of three adjoining lots of land at Grenier Industrial Village. The three lots, each approxi- mately two acres in size, are on the east side of Harvey. Road in the recently approved subdivision of Parcel I of the Authorities' property. This is the first sale in the 97 acre lot which has been subdivided into 33 -parcels. The basic sale price of this land was per acre, the cost of extension of the water and sewer systems to be negotiated. The Authority hailed the as an important one- since it brings a substantial company td Industrial Village. Microwave has an affiliated coriipany, the Fab-Braze Corp. of Nashua. The next step in this transaction is the release of the property from the mortgage held by the banks and guaranteed by the N.H. In- dustrial Development Authority. The proposed use of this site has not been announced by Micro- wave. The plans for development of the area and the proposed con- struction will be submitted to the Authority for approval under the provisions of the pertinent stat- utes and regulations under which the Authority operates. Angle parking on Main -Street will soon be a thing of the past. Unanimously approved by the Board of Aldermen last night was a set of ordinances elimin- ating angle parking on both sides of Alain Street and substituting tandem parallel parking. Commenting on the change, Alderman at Large John V. Ihesson, chairman of the traffic committee, said the move was necessary if the city was to qualify for federal funds in con- junction with street improvements to be undertaken with the TOPICS program. In responding to questions posed by Alderman Robert A. Dion, Chessori said the change would mean the loss of about 80 parking spaces. He said the tandem parking sys- tem would provide an extra five feet ot space between cars so every other car could be driven into the parking space.
