The weather bureau today roofs under the weight of the Separation In Space Successful posted travelers warn- ings for Rhode Island, Connecti- cut and most of Massachusetts where accumulations of four to lix inches were predicted.

The storm was centered off Virginia this morning, "and moving north the weather bureau said. It was ex- pected to pass New England by late afternoon. Fair skies were predicted for tonight.

Schweickart sep- arated their fragile lunar module from the Apollo 9 command ship today, start- ing a space rendezvous ma- neuver vital to America's moon landing plans. Brief Hangup After a brief hangup, the two vehicles broke their lock 145 miles above the Atlantic Ocean at a.m. EST, Air Force Col. David R. Scott was left alone in the command module. They were not to link up again until mid-afternoon, alter Mc- Divitt and-Schweickart fly the lunar module, or LEM, 112 miles away and then track down Scott in a celestial game of tag. As Scott pulled an arrow-like docking probe out of the nose of the LEM, he reported: "Un- decked." i But he almost immediately reported that the probe was hung up on -something in the docking tunnel. "We seem to be hanging on he reported. "I'm going to back up a bit." McDivitt asked Mission Con- trol Center if "you have any About that time, Scott jiggled the probe out and told the LEM pilots: "Okay, you're free. You're clear." Immediately after the separa- tion, the two vehicles flew cir- cles around each other in an or- bital ballet as Scott snapped pic- tures and the pilots checked the condition of their spindly-legged machine. "You've got a nice looking Scott told the LEM pilots. Lamprey Mum on Federal Post CONCORD, N. H. (AP) State Senate President Stewart Lamprey refuses to either confirm or deny that he's being considered for a federal post in Washington. Closed Session The Associated Press has learned that the Moultonboro Republican called his 23 col- leagues into a closed session Thursday afternoon and told them he is going to Washing- ton. But he did not specify to the senators just what the job is about. However, there were reports the Republican leader is being considered to coordinate one of Vice President Spiro Agriew's programs. In other legislative develop- ments: The Republican House leadership is sponsoring a Mil to make a full study of just how much organized crime there is in New Hampshire. House Majority Leader Har- Ian Logan said at a news con- ference Thursday that the con- troversy raised last year about rumored Mafia infiltration in state business and government was inspired, in part, by the slate's political campaign. He said ranking Republicans have looked into the various charges and now have de- cided to make what he termed a "little more thorough study of how much of this was campaign literature and how much of it was locally inspired." "Let's either bring up evi- dence and support that there's a major problem, or discard it as a major problem and get on with solving the real he said. A commission to look into the situation would be created by the bill. Logan also told newsmen he's happy that Gov. Walter Peter- son's task force is starting its work. But he cautioned that the fact that there is a task force should not be used to make this "a do-nothing" legislative ses- sion. He said the lawmakers will be able to use many of the sta- tistics turned out by the task force in such areas as educa- tion, rehabilitation and pollution control. But he said the task force could be a major roadblock when "we are trying to get ac- tion in the legislature" because there might be attempts by some to want to slack off and wait and see what the task force recommends. "We have to go ahead on our own with our own Logan said. The Republican leader also released statistics that the House is working harder at this session than it had in previ- ous sessions. Board of Education Seeks Logan said that a total 483 measures were entered in the House during the opening two months, against 412 in the 1967 session and 302 in the 1965 Gen- eral Court. Logan added that there have been 406 hearings, 279 bills re- ported to the floor, 103 passed to the Senate and 33 signed into law. All these are up from the pre- vious session when 249 hearings had been held, 117 reported bills, 81 passed to the Senate and 22 signed into law. But Logan said that although the pace of the House has in- creased, there's still more that needs to be done and there's a lack of staff help. He also said the House is spending too much time wrang- ling over the most minor of bills. Some "Showoffs" He said this is partly due to "a- certain percentage of nit- some "showoffs" who play to the press and the fact that many lawmakers are spending more time in their own committee, hearings and do not have a chance to attend hearings on other bills. Logan also reported that House Speaker Marshall Cob-. leigh is feeling better, that tests have been completed on Cob- leigh at a Nashua hospital and the apparent conclusion is that the speaker doesn't have appen- dicitis after all. Logan said it's possible Cob- leigh might be back at work in Concord nest Cobleigh became ill Wednes- day with pains in the side and told newsmen that a diagnosis was that he was suffering the first stages of appendicitis. Manchester Radio Station' WFEA today was quoting House Minority Leader Robert Raiche as saying he expects the contro- versial abortion reform bill to pass the Senate by a vote of 13- 10. Raiche was also quoted as saying he expects Peterson will sign the measure once it passes. There have been reports the governor would be happier if he were not placed in the position of making a decision on wheth- er to sign or veto the controver- sial bill. It was Raiche's vote in the House, where the bill passed after hours of turmoil, that set off a controversy-in the Demo- cratic ranks of the lower cham- ber. Raiche voted in favor of the bill and the Nashua and Man- chester Democrats, most .of whom are either Franco-Ameri- cans, Roman Catholics, or both, criticized the young college in- structor for not sticking with them against the medical bill. Eventually, the Manchester Democrat came out on top of the controversy. The Senate Public Health Committee is scheduled to hold a public hearing on the meas- ure March 27. "So is was the reply. "That's all it looks like, too, some kind of a joked Scott, referring to the insect-like appearance of the LEM. McDivitt and Schweickart did not want to commit themselves to a large separation until they were certain everything was .working. Because, for the first time, men were orbiting the earth in a spaceship not capable of re-en- tering the atmosphere. LEM was built to operate only in space or on the moon, so it is es- sential that they return to the command ship to get horns. The two vehicles used their radio code names, "Spider" for the LEM and "Gumdrop" for the command module. Mission Control commented' that for sev- eral hours Spider would be spin- ning a web around Gumdrop. The flight plan called for McDivitt and Schweickart to make all the rendezvous maneu- vers. But Scott stood by as a lifeguard, ready to speed to the rescue if necessary. The maneuvers simulate those that two astronauts will make when they launch a LEM from the moon to catch the main Apollo craft in lunar orbit for the trip home. Way May Be Cleared If Apollo 9 succeeds in the in- tricate maneuver, the way will be clear for Apollo 10 to fly a LEM in moon orbit In May and for Apollo 11 to attempt the his- toric landing in July. The strategy of rendezvous, painstakingly plotted by scien- tists and computers, called for the LEM to catch the command ship :by taking advantage of or- bital mechanics, the physics laws that govern the motion of orbiting bodies. By flying into a higher path, McDivitt and Schweickart would require longer to make a circuit of the earth and gradual- Ijj'fall behind Scott. Later, they beneath, their target and gradually catch up, using radar and radio to lock on. Following the exercise, the astronauts were to kick the LEM- away in space and spend the: final five days circling globe to gain more experience flying the Apollo command ship. The flight is scheduled to end next, Thursday with splashdown in the Atlantic Ocean. The astronauts reported they were In good condition, with no sign of the colds that delaj'ed their launching three days or of the nausea that struck Schweickart Wednesday. >oce This drawing illustrates how astro- naut Russell L. Schweickart stood outside the orbiting Apollo 9 mooncraft to per- form America's first spacewalk in more than two years. He wore a pair of "gold- en slippers" attached to the platform, Space Walker holding him fast and enabling him to use his hands. He held a camera, with which he snapped pictures, and carried an oxygen-giving back pack that kept him alive and protected him from the fierce vacuum of space.

The aldermen currently meet twice a month, except for June, July, August and September when they Hold monthly meetings. LaFlamme said he is proposing the change in an effort to reduce the work backlog which accumu- lates during summer months. He said as the city grows the aldermen face more work and in- creasing the number of summer meetings would help to expedite matters. Last summer, the aldermen held several special meetings to act on items which could not be delayed to coincide with the monthly meeting schedule. By JOHN J. MULLINS PROVINCETOWN, Mass- (AP) A snowstorm forced po- lice today to postpone resump- tion of a search of Cape Cod's desolate sand dunes which have yielded the hacked up bodies of four young women. "We receive reports of as many as 500 persons missing, in the Cape area every Dist. Atty. Edmund Dinis said. "Yes, we expect to find more bodies..." Three of the bodies were unearthed Wednesday. Two of the victims were Rhode Island girls who had been missing for a month. The other body was found Feb. 8 during the early stages of a police search for the Rhode Island girls. Only the bodies of the Rhode Island girls have been identified through dental charts. They were Patricia Walsh, 23, a Prov- idence school teacher, and Mary Ann Wysocki, also 23 and of Providence, a senior at Rhode Island College. Dr- Daniel H. Hiebert, district medical examiner, said late Thursday that both had been shot to death with a .22 caliber rifle, then dismembered. He said that it has not been determined what killed the oth- er two. Antone Costa, 25, an unem- ployed carpenter and one time taxidermist was arrested on a murder charge. Judge Gershom D. Hall ordered him committed to Bridgewater State Hospital for a mental ex- amination. Dinis told newsmen there was evidence that the Providence girls may have been dismem- bered while lashed to a tree. "Rope was found in the he said, "and rope was found tied around the face of one of the girls." Dinis ruled out robbery as a possible motive, saying that the .purses of both Miss Walsh and Miss Wysocki had been found near their grave. Each con- tained money, he said. He would add only that the ev- idence "indicates an extreme degree of abnormality." Costa, a thin man with a black moustache, stood mute at his arraignment. He was hand- cuffea, wore what have come to be kiown as granny glasses, a biiW .turtleneck sweater, chinos, ankle-high shoes and a parka.

HESS New York Times News Service PARIS Another gold rush developed on European Markets today, fed by a labor crisis In France. The price of gold climbed to record levels of an ounce in Zurich, and in Paris on heavy speculation that the franc would topple. The speculation was encour- aged by the virtual breakdown of French national wage discus- sions and the calling of a 24- hour general strike for Tuesday. The wage confrontation could blow over, observers here felt, but it could also touch off a new international monetary crisis. After a series of such crises in the last two years, confidence in paper money has been weak- ened and interest rates haw soared. France is regarded as espe- cialiy vulnerable because of the general strike last year, the big wage increases that resulted, and the run of the Franc last November. A devaluation of the Franc could lead to a general round of devaluations of world currencies. The government's insistence on holding the line on the Franc lias run head-on into growing pressures from labor for wage increases to catch up with the cost of living. The positions proved irreconcilable at the so- called "rendezvous of March." The date had been set during the general strike last May, when government, employers and labor agreed to meet again this month to review tire wage- price situation. Last week the government an- nounced it would grant a 4 per cent pay rise this year, in two steps, for the nationalized indus- tries. It made clear that it ex- pected this to set a pattern for the civil service and private in- dustry. During the three days of talks at the social affairs ministry be- side the Arc De Triomphe, the government and employers de- clined to go into direct negotia- tions. The debates were limited to arguments about how much wages, prices and taxes had risen. Thus President ds Gaulle faced the beginning of what was inevitably called a "mini-May" next Tuesday on the day when he is scheduled to deliver an important television address. The speech has been billed as an Introduction of the regional reform program that will be put to a national referendum April 27. The new crisis may change the emphasis. Court Declines to Accept Oliver Marvin Resignation By ADOLPHE V. BERNOTAS CONCORD, N.H.
