H. 20 PAGES Price TEN CENTI Mayor To Gut School Funds By CLAUDKTaE DUBOCHEB Where the schopl budget Will be cut, if it is to be cut tt all, remained undecided after a nearly three-hour budget review by the aldermen last night. Mayor Dennis J. Sullivan wound up the rev tew at the school and athletic budgets by declaring he sM panned to reduce the department's appropriations by be- cause I know it's in there somewhere. Remains Blank In the school budget sheets he distributed last night, Sullivan left blank the column reserved for appropriations he would allow against requests made. At the end of the hearing, which fea- tured a free-wheeling discussion on a variety of items, the ap- propriations column was still blank. The board is asking for million to run the school system this year which is more than appropriated last year. Of the total Increase, is for wage increases and addi- tional personnel and is for Increases in items related to maintenance, equipment and serv- ices. This is exclusive of the school athletic budget for which 406 is asked. Last year, was allowed for the athlelic pro- gram. Sullivan late last week asked the board in a letter to cut 000 from its budget in order to lower the tax rate. He suggested that the board reconsider in par- ticular a raise granted to School Supt. Edmund M. Keefe French Will Elect Leader On June I PARIS French Cab- inet today set June 1 as the date for Ihe firsl round of voling in the election to name President Charles tie Gaulle's successor. If no candidate gets'a majori- ty on the first round, the two top men will compete in a runoff election June 15. Georges Pompidou of the Gaullists is the only announced candidate so far and the favor- ite to replace. .the general he served for six years as premier. Al least three men are compet- ing for .the Socialist nomination, a Communist candidate is like- ly, and there probably will be other entries also. All candidates must submit their petitions by midnight May 13. The campaign officially opens May 17. ary as of Sept. 1 to Commenting on the mayor'i request, Dr. Norman W. Crisp, presidenl of Ihe Board of Educa- tion, said Ihe board had snenl i Jol of time planning its educa- tional program and that budget represented the bare min- imum needed. And, he noted, the mayor arid the aldermen have the privilegt and bear the responsibility for making budget-cuts. Speaking on the same point, Mrs. Margaret Flynn said 17 per cent ol Ihe school budget goes .toward salaries Of teachers and administrators. Increases in the salary sched- ules for leachers 'and admin- istrators, she said, must be al- lowed to meet competition. "If you don't meet competi- she warned, "your system is going to slip." Mrs. Flynn added lhat taking from the remaining U per cent of the budget would mean affecting such "bread and butter items" as heating, elec- tricity, janitor supplies. Sullivan dwelt at length on the raise given Keefe. He felt a raise would have been sufficient for Keefe and that the raise granted set a bad precedent for bargan- ing with the teachers. Procedures used in setting sala- ries for school personnel were outlined by Mrs. Flynn. Accepted Scales Just as the other departments have the Yarger classification plan to set wages for municipal employes, she explained, school boards have certain accepted scales, for setting the'salaries oY teachers and administrators. On the bachelor's track, she said, Ihe accepted scale calls for the teacher on the top step of the bachelor's traclf to-be earning 1.5 to two times more that the teacher on the first step. Nashua, Mrs. Flynn said, has been conservative and held to the 1.5 ratio. The administrators' salaries, she said, are then predicated on the teacher's salary schedules. The national average, she said, calls for the superintendent to earn twice as much as the highest paid MAYOR .PLANS 1 Peace Is Stressed In Soviet May Day By HENRY KAMM New York Times News Service MOSCOW The Soviet Union celebrated May Day yesterday without brandishing its missiles and tanks and with a reaffirma- tion of its declared readiness to sellle outstanding disputes by negotiation. In Ihe first May Day demon- stration since World War II wilhoul military participation, Leonid I. Brezhnev, general sec- retary of the Communist Party, made the traditional address from atop Lenin's tomb on Red Square. In recent years, the speech has been delivered by Ihe de- fense minister and followed by a roaring and rumbling display of (he latest heavy weaponry and military equipment across the vast square. Brezhnev's 20-minute speech stressed the theme of ihe Soviet Union's willingness for peaceful coexistence with all countries. The party leader mentioned the world's danger zones and trou- ble spots only lo declare Ihe Soviet Union's solidarity with its allies and ils willingness lo sel- tle all conflicts by conferences. The speech contained no di- rect denunciation of the United Stales, West Germany or Israel, which ordinarily are targets of verbal attack in Soviet foreign policy pronouncements. Wins Applause While stressing Moscow's peaceful intentions, Brezhnev did not, however, overlook the KUHLS MARINE PRODUCTS Available at Nashua Wallpaper Co. 129 W. Pearl St. 882-9491 Olien I'll. K'lglit' "W theme of military preparedness. He won his firsl applause from the crowd by referring to the Soviet Union's "mighty armed forces" as the guardians of "the peaceful labor of the Soviet peo- ple." Standing to Brezhnev's right on the mausoleum of reddish marble was a long line of be- medaled marshals and generals headed by Marshal Andrei A. Grechko, the defense minister. The theme suggested to dip- lomatic observers a Soviel ef- fort to present an image of peaceful intentions and harmony among political and military leaders of the Soviet Union. The peaceable image of the Soviet Union suffered great damage, even within Ihe Com- munist movemenls, in last Aug- ust's Soviet-led invasion of Czechoslovakia. The subsequent efforts to sellle the resulting political difficulties in the occu- pied counlry, have stirred ru- mors that the military is gaining a commanding posilion in the inlernM political balance of power. The sudden cancellation of the military parade early last month, aflcr rehearsals for it had already begun, suggested to some observers thai it was a move by .the political leader- ship to deal a public blow to the prestige of the military. Other, more cautious, analysis found no evidence for this, and today's demonstration but- tressed their case.

Most of those convicted ap- pealed, and were released in per- sonal recognizance of 5100 each for Superior Court trial May 12. But 26 of the defendants paid the fines. The defendants, who during the three days of trial were warned frequently ihey could face contempt charges for hiss- ing and loud laughing at testi- mony of witnesses, were brought into the courtroom in detachments of 10 to hear the findings and the penalties. While waiting their turn the defendants, most of them Har- vard sludenls, crowded Ihe City's Board Delays Action On Rubbish Collection Bids The aldermanic finance com- miltee opened bids for contract- Ing the municipal rubbish col- lections to private firms last night but deferred an award until cosl account figures of the present system can be analyzed for com- parative purposes.

(AP) Senate Finance Committee Chairman George Oilman wants to squeeze the head tax until it yields more.than million for the state's "most urgent" needs. Offers Amendment He made the proposal Thurs- day in ah amendment to the House-passed bill that continues the current levy, re-enacted since 1951 as a "temporary" The measure is now in the Senate's Ways and Means Com- mittee. In a -letter to Ways and Means Chairman William Gove, R-Concord, Oilman stressed that his proposal would be limited to one year. It-would tax those aged 18 to 65 a total of per year, pay- in three instalments. It would also impose a !50 tax on all corporations and busi- nesses. The Farmington Republican estimated the yield would be million for the General Fund and J1.85 million to local communities. Oilman said the need for rev- enue is "most with ad- ditional funds required for .vo- cational rehabilitation, educa- tion of handicapped children, slate employe pay boosts and the "proper funding of the Uni- versity of New Hampshire sys- tem and our technical and vo- cational schools" as well as the usual administrative agencies and welfare. "I he added, "that more leadership has not been exercised" in pointing out the needs and finding revenue to cover them. Meanwhile, the House Ways and .Means Committee is con-, sidering a subcommittee's pro- posal of a 5 per cent income tax in New Hampshire, the only state without a so-called broad- based tax on either all sales or all incomes.

The subcommillee described ils amended version of Ihe in- come bill as being "fair, equit- able and adequate to meet the unfunded essential needs of Ihe state." Exemptions are arranged so that a family of four earning annually would pay no stale income lax. The levy would be applied to the adjusted gross income as defined for fed- eral tax purposes. The bill abolishes a variety of taxes including those on inven- tory, interest and dividends, machinery, poultry, and stud horses and jackasses. The study group attacked the current taxing structure as be- ing unfair to the elderly, work- ing men, small shopekeepers, businesses, farmers, wage earn- ers, and some children. In other legislative develop- ment: Both legislators and Uni- versity of New Hampshire stu- denls have picked up criticism Sen. James Koromilas, R- Dover. Koromilas told his colleagues Thursday the legislature over- reacted when a group of stu- dents marched on the Stale House last Week demanding the state enact a gradualed income tax. But he then criticized the stu- dents for their failure lo appear al a hearing on a proposed con- stitutional amendment that would permit the legislature to enact a graduated income tax. The amendment, sponsored by KoromilaSi' was heard before Tax the House Constitutional Revi- sion Committee Wednesday. It passed the Senate several weeki ago by a .15-8 roll call vote. Meanwhile, Sen. Laurier La- montagne, D-Berlin, said he will seek to place a footnote in the UNH budget that will prevent the school trom raising its tui- tion. He will not seek any addition- al revenue for the university to compensate for the money that might have been gained, he said. "They can cut back in other areas." he added.
