Sullivan. Consequences Cited the board mem- bers will attempt to impress Suljivari with the consequences of his cut and to get him to restore the funds. The session was- -agreed to at a meeting of the board last night after several demurred from approving a mo- tion by Paul G. April that the school system run at a.deficit rather than cut services. In trimming away from the school budget, Sullivan, pared all accounts, except ries which the Board of Educa- tion has autonomy in setting. Among items affected was transportation account which Sullivan reduced by the books and films account, re- duced by and fixed ac- counts such arfiiel, heat, water, telephone and electricity. Total Figure From the proposed school budget itself, the mayor lopped off from the amount re- quested, leaving a total budget of In 1968, the sum of was allowed. Sullivan pruned the compa- nion school athletic budget by. School Board Member, William J. O'Neilj JDjes William J.; O'Neil: of 53 Kin- sley St., retired high school teacher and present member of the Board of Education, died last night in the U.S. Naval Hos- pital, Chelsea, Mass. He .was 84. Born on Aug. ,22, 1884, he was graduated from Ayer, Mass., High School and the University. of Massachusetts, class of 1903. Formerly associated with the United Shoe, Machinery Corpo- ration in Beverly, Mass., he subsequently moved to Nashua where he taught school for 33 years, retiring in 1953. He wai elected to the Board of Educa- tion that year and had served continuously since. Mr. O'Neil'was a communi- cant of St. Patrick's Church. He was a member of the Na- shua Lodge of Elks, the Knights of Columbus, and the N.H. Re- tired Teachers Association. 'Survivors Include a son, Cap- reducing this budget to Last year, was granted for school athletics. The impact on the budget culj oh bus transportation was the subject of lengthy discussion. School Supt. Edmund M. Keefe reported on a conference held with the owner of the Hudson Bus Lines to set up a schedule for bus transportation during the next school year in view of the dual sessions, at the high school. But adoption of the plan was not .considered since the board pointed out that with the may- or's cut the bus transportation account could not meet obliga- tions. Dr. John N. Fontana said it was a shame to have thVboard members meet "night after night" to prepare its budget and to have the mayor cut it in the way he did. John T. Dimtsios maintained that aroused public opinion .would support the asking of a supplementary budget for the 'school system to make up the mayor's cuts. Remarking that had been cut from the telephone account and Wondering how this situa- tion was to be met, Fonlana commented that cuts 'of this na- ture were ridiculous and ab- surd. Gerald R. Prunier, noted that the book and film account was severely cut at a time when the need for more books and audio visual aids were being asked for. It was noted that the school department is not required to provide bus transportation for high school students and lhat this service might be cut back. to operate within the budgetary allowances made by the mayor for transportation. But several members pointed out that next year ninth graders would be attending high school arid under the dual session set- up they.would be leaving school at about In the winter, it was noted, this would mean having students SCHOOL BUDGET Page 2 Parady Appointed NHS Grid Coach Tax Problems?

The astronauts, who became the first men to shave in space the day before, seemed elated, as they stepped onto a red car- pet rolled across the deck. They danced exuberant little jigs as they headed for sick bay and medical examination. Doctors reported they were in excellent physical condition.

Armstrong and Aldrin are to land on the moon while Collins remains in moon orbit aboard the command ship. NASA 'Administrator Paine told a news conference Monday, "Today with the Apollo, crew safely on board the TJSS Prince- ton, we know, we can get to the moon. Tom Stafford, John Young and Eugene Cernah have given us the final confidence to make the next bold step." He. noted that the present. launch date for Apollo 11 is July. 16, with .the landing set for July 20." he cautioned, "we have no inflexible commit- ment to these specific dates. We will hot hesitate to postpone the Apollo .11 mission if we feel we are not ready in all respects. And once that voyage has be- gun, we have no commitment that would make us hesitate to bring home the crew immedi- ately if we encounter prob- lems."

BARTON WASHINGTON (AP) Presi- dent Nixon asked Congress to- day for legislation to convert the Post Office Department into a., .government-owned, self-sus- taining service removed from Cabinet status. "Traditions .die hard and tra- ditional institutions are difficult to Nixon declared. "But tradition is no substitute for performance, aild if our postal system is to meet the ex- panding needs of the 1970s, we must act now." The President's, proposal was largely based on recommenda- tions submitted by Frederick IJ. Kappel, head of former Presi- dent Lyndon B. Johnson's Com- mission on Postal Organization. Nixon said his reform, besides removing the post office from the Cabinet, calls for several sweeping changes including: of an independent postal service wholly owned by the federal government and ad- ministered by a nine-member board of directors. and extensive collec- tive bargaining rights for postal employes. financing for major capital improvements, similar to the funding arrangement now held by the Tennessee Valley Authority. of a commis- sion of experts to propose changes in mail classifications and postage rates, subject to re- view by the seven presidenlially appointed members of the nine- jnan board.
