(Viking Aerial Photo) Nixon Promises 'Response' If Con Attacks Continue By FRANK_COEMIER ).jf: a dbubling of the American casualty rate since'the start of the -.eiKrent-.enemy fensive in Vietnam, says the" attacks can not be tolerated and will bring "appropriate response" if continued: Prime Time Nixon, in an unprecedented me-tim e television-radio news conference limited to for- eign affairs, said Tuesday night he is weighing several possible moves against the Viet Cong North Vietnam "if those at- tacks .continue at their present magnitude." He left open the option of re- suming bombing of North Viet- nam, acknowledging such a course was under study. But he made it clear the Unit- ed States "will not tolerate con- tinued violation" of the standing that led to last fall's bombing halt or accept mount- ing U..S casualties while peace talks are going on in Paris. Standing without notes before a bare double microphone stand m the EiglRciom of ft- ported on his five-nation Euro-- pean tour and, in response to questions, also said: is his "cautious conclu- sion" that the Soviet Union "will play possibly a peacemak- ing role in-the Mideast and even possibly in Vietnam." is optimistic about pros- pects for four-power talks on the Middle East and feels that while such a conference could not im- pose a settlement, it is essential for the United States, the Soviet Union, France and Great Brit- ain to guarantee any Arab-Is- raeli peace. summit talks at the highest level "are fa the pending the out- come of lower-level negotiations already under; way. believes his European journey established between the United States and its western al- new relationship of trust and confidence that did not exist before." Despite top billing for the trip, the news conference came quickly, to the most pressing is- sue before the the enemy offensive in Vietnam. The President suggested the enemy which started F.eb. 23, has .faUetf'jn its tives. He added that while study continues on possible U.S. troop withdrawals, none are planned for the near future. Nixon also reported discuss- ing in Paris with, American and Saigon representatives "ap- proaches that might be made" to break the peace talk dead- lock. Nixon advanced the opinion that the Paris negotiations are entering a second phase "in which we will have hard bar- gaining on the major points of difference." The current -wave of enemy assaults, which include shelling of South Vietnamese cities, and ther hoped-for U.S. troop with- drawals will be assessed by De- fense Secretary Melvin R. Laird on his trip to the war area, Nix- on said. What the defense chief reports after returning from the trip that started today is expected to bear heavily on what if any reaction the President decides is in order. While talking in somewhat ominous terms about the possi- ble results of the enemy offen- sive In Vietnam, the President took a generally optimistic atti- hide towanfTfSite wd West relations. "The Soviet he said, "does not want a confrontation with the United States, any more than we want one with them, because each of us knows what a confrontation would mean." He obviously was banking on this assessment in talking in positive terms about a future summit, in suggesting the viets might play the part of global peacemaker, and in ad- vancing the prediction that the Soviet government "will use its Influence to cool off" the cur- rent Berlin crisis. Time and again, Nixon cited talks he and Secretary of State William P. Rogers have had with Ambassador Anatoly Do- brynin as his basis for apprais- ing Soviet intentions. Only 190 newsmen were count-, ed in Nixon's smallest turnout for any of his three news conferences- But the at Nixon's suggestion, ran 56 than his other sessions with newsmen. CONCORD, Indus- trialist Royden Sanders Jr. of Nashua, a soft-spoken scientist, was named by Gov. Walter Peterson today to head the powerful Citi- zens Task Force that will make an in-depth study of the effectiveness of state government. Report Confirmed Peterson's disclosure at a news conference confirmed an Associated Press report that 51-year-old head of Sanders As- sociates, a 1290 million-a-year electronics firm, would be named to the voluntary non-sal- aried position of guiding the task force. Peterson said the names of the 15-member executive com- mittee will be announced soon. On Tuesday, the governor signed into law the Cit- izens Task Force measure to which he had assigned the top- priority. He views the task force as his key to good government in the state. Sanders, whose firm is the state's largest employer with more than persons on its payroll, said that as he comes to head the task force he has "no preconceived ideas" of what its recommendations will be. The task force report is due by Nov. 1, and Peterson plans to call the legislators into spe- cial session probably early next year to consider the recommendations. One of -the first things Sand- ers did at the news conference was to specifically ask the newsmen for their ideas on how state governmental operations can be improved. When pressed on how he feels about the matter of possible tax reform, Sanders again said he had ideas and not "make a pub- lic statement on the issue at this time. Sanders said he is a regis- tered Republican but that he would be a registered independ- ent if that were possible. He said he looks forward to heading the group and agrees with the governor on the impor- tance of making the best use of the state's resources. ROYDEN C. SANDERS JR. In his first official appearance as chairman of the task force, Sanders addressed a joint session of the legislature. The Nashua Republican told the state's legis- lators he had agreed to serve as task force chairman for several reasons. "First, I agree whole- heartedly with our governor u to the need for a qualitative analy- sis of the effectiveness of state he said. "Second, I am convinced that the welcome, yet often disruptive, forces of growth in our state must be planned for now, for if we postpone our planning until a time of crisis, our decision may not reflect the wisdom that so often comes from quiet thought." "Third, as -ia private citizen, not involved in the arduous task of legislating and governing, I say in all candor that our fellow citizens, regardless of political calling, look to government to make the best possible use of our present resources, both human and material." It was his opinion, Sanders said, that the concerned people of New Hampshire and the state's legis- lating bodies are "our greatest asset." Pledges Best Efforts "On that Sanders con-1 eluded, "I pledge my best effort! to assist you in making those de- cisions which in the final analysis are only yours to make." Sanders is a holder of the U.S. Navy's Distinguished Public Serv- ice Award for his contribution of systems development for the Na- vy. With 10 associates and in capital, he rented a small space in the basement of a Waltham, Mass., foundry in 1951, and began work on the development of a tiny gyroscope, believed to be world's smallest. Sanders Associates, Inc., based in Nashua, has now grown to more than employees lo- cated in dozens of plants and of- fices throughout the country and overseas. Its current sale ex- ceed million a year. Russia Charges Red China With Provoking Incident By BERNARD GUERTZMAN York Timw Strvioi MOSCOW The Soviet Union today branded Communist China's version of last Sunday's Frontier clash as "without foundation" and said Peking had provoked the in, cident to create an atmosphere of "Nationalistic hysteria" behind Mao Tse-Tung. Responding sharply to Peking1! claim that Russia's troops crossed into its territory, Tass, the official Press Agency, said "the Chinese reply, which advances impudent claims to Soviet territory, con- firms once again that the armed incursion on March 2 this year was no accidental and isolated Merrimack Area to Get Water From Pennichuck The Pennichuck Water Works has received authorization to supply water to a franchise area in Merrimack which includes the Anheuser-Busch brewery.

Schweickart became the first American'to transfer from one spaceship to another today when he floated through a con- necting tunnel from the-Apollo I command ship to the lunar land- trig craft locked on its nose. Maneuvering like a swimmer In the'weightless world of space, Schweickart slipped head first through the 39-inch passage and entered the lunar module (LEM) about a.m.. EST. He was to be joined an hour later by tin mission command- er, Air Force Col. James A. McDivitt, leaving Air Force Col. David R. Scott to control the command module. For the first time, a man was in an unpowered spaceship and it was up to him to activate the life support, electrical and other an earthman walking into his garage in the morning to start his car. Preparationi {or thi tricky transfer took longer than antici- pated and Schweickart moved into the LEM about 80 minutes later than first time in the mission that the as- tronauts were not right on their flight plan. Quite Late running quite a bit Apollo 9 radioed. Their main holdup was align- ing the guidance system plat- form, making certain the com- bined vehicles were stable be- fore Scott was left alone in the command ship. Aligning tin platform Is a three-man job, in- volving star tracking, computer readout and steering. There was no announcement by the astronauts when Schweickart moved into the LEM. first indication the ground had was when a station began receiving telemetry sig- nals from the bug-like vehicle. The transfer began the first of three critical days in which the LEM will undergo rigorous test, ing. How well It performs will determine If U.S. spacemen can attempt a moon landing in July. For several hours today, McDivitt and Schweickart planned to operate the LEM's hundreds of systems, checking their readiness to support a space walk by Schweickart Thursday and a complex separ- ation, rendezvous and docking emrcise Friday. They were to show earthlings how they work in the crowded LEM cabin during a seven-min- ute television broadcast. And later in the day they were to fire for the first time the de- scent engine designed to brake a later LEM for a lunar touch- down. Schweickart is not the first spaceman to shift from one ship to another In orbit. Two space- walking Russian cosmonauts transferred from Soyuz 5 to So- yuz 4 while the two vehicles were linked in space In Janu- ary The connecting tunnel wai formed Monday when Apollo 9 hooked up nose-to-nose with the LEM shortly after launching from Cape Kennedy Monday to start a planned 10-day earth or- bit journey Both the tunnel and LEM had since been pressurized. But to be on the safe side, all three as- tronauts this morning pressure suits in case of sudden depressurizatioh of the untried LEM. "Everything looks good for IVT (intra-vehicular Mission Control Center radioed the astronauts. "Thank you we're mushing Scott replied. Trailing a life-giving umbili- cal line that fed him oxygen from the command module sys- tem, Schweickart carefully made his way through the nar- row tunnel. He folded the hinged lunar module hatch back and entered the odd-looking vehicle which is built to land two men on the moon. "On the south by the boun- dary line between the town of Merrimack and the city of Na- shua; on the west by the F. E. Everett Turnpike; and on the north by a line running at a right angle to the Merrimack River and extending from the Merrimack River to the Everett Turnpike through a point on the Daniel Webster Highway locat- ed on the northern boundary of the Anheuser-Busch Corp. prop- erty." The commissioners include Ronald E. Geiger, chairman, Seth Hudak and Henry Ther- riauit. Donald C. Calderwood, presi- dent, of PWW, said the water firm has concluded negotiations to supply water for fire protec- tion and backup purposes to the brewery. "We've signed the contract and it's in St. Louis being re- viewed for signature." The agreement, he said, is contingent on approval by the Public Utilities Commission. Calderwood said the Nashua Corporation has indicated inter- est in getting water from the PWW but no agreement has been reached. If the state permits the PWW to operate in Merrimack, Cal- derwood said, it would be free to supply water to anyone in the specified franchise area.

INC. Serving and Soviet note to Peking, published here, said that 200 armed Chinese crossed the border post in vicinity of Damansky Isjand. China said, in its public reply, that Soviet forces crossed the frontier and gave its name for the island, ChienPaoTao. Tass said Peking's note was without foundation and tried to "evade responsibility for the crime perpetrated." It added: "It is significant that immediately after the armed in- cursion into Soviet territory, Chinese stepped up further the nationalistic hysteria in the coun- try. Anti-Soviet calls and threaM are voiced in the streets and squares of Peking and other towns at big gatherings, also attended by the military." This was the first Soviet official notice of the large-scale nubile demonstrations that have been taking place in Peking and other Chinese cities over the past days. Tass said "Clbese-creSted "incf-' dents "have begun to take placa constantly in the area of the Soviet-Chinese frontier. As shown by the latest events, the Chinese authorities have taken the road of dangerous provocative action." Both the Chinese and Russians agree that forces on the border at the Ussuri River fired on each other and that there were dead and wounded on both sides.
