NEW HAMPSHIRE, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 8, IW Second Cliss Paid At Nashua, 44 PA6ES CENT5 i i i Board Okays New Theater For Nashua By CLAUDETTE DUROCHEB City Planning Board last night approved the construction of a 700-seat theater in SLmoneau Plaza but rejected a site plan for a gasoline kiosk which had been .twice denied by the Zoning Board of Adjustment. .Describes Plan A spokesman for Simoneau Plaza Inc. said the theater wil be a' "cinema type" usuall; found in shopping centers. It will be built south of Alice's Wonderful Kitchen, facing Main Street. The gasoline kiosk, consisting of two gasoline pumps and a booth for an attendant, was to be constructed between two Main Street plaza exits. This site plan was rejectee on the grounds that the gasoline pumps would constitute a traf- fic hazard in an already hazard ous area. The only board mem- ber lo. vote against denial was Douglas G. Robertson. Prior to voting on the kiosk site plan, however, the-boarc discussed at length a recently granted court decree which grants Simoneau Plaza Inc. a zoning exception to build the kiosk: Thomas Kudzma, a member of both the Planning Board the Zoning Board of Adjust- said he was una'ware thai the decree had been issued and questioned how the court could issue such a decree without having heard the zoning board which had denied the excep- tion., Further exploration of the Is> sue, however, revealed that the decree was issued the court In June on the basis of in agree- ment Breached between Cit. f lidtor Arthur 0. Gonnley-Jr. and Paul S. jel for Simoneau Plaza Inc. The board was first Informed of the decree when Joseph M. Kerrigan, representing Simc- neau Plaza before the Planning Board, referred to it in'discuss- ing-the site plan for the gaso- line kiosk. :City Engineer James F. Ho- gaa, a Planning Board mem- ber, said he was unaware of the decree and, as administra- tive officer of. the zoning code, had not received any official notification of it. Gormley Called Gonnley, who was to meet with the board on another ques- tion, was called in to discuss the decree. In reviewing the local zoning code, he said, the Plannin Board has powers to deny a zoning exception lo allow gaso: line pumps in a G Business dis trict, even though the applicant for an exception may meet all conditions set forth for approval in the zoning code. But the Supreme Court, Gonnley said, has ruled that zoning boards do not have the power to deny a zoning excep- tion when the applicants .meets all conditions in the zoning code. Simoneau Plaza, he added, met all conditions and this was why he proceeded with the agreement. Kudzma objected, saying he felt the zoning board had valid reasons for turning down pre- rious plans for the gasoline kiosk and that these should iave been presented to the court before any decision was made.

About 800 provincial police were rushed to the city to al to the garage and a scuffle broke out when company guards tried to hold them off. A rock-throwing battle then developed.

HEARS WASHINGTON (AP) The Republican call for a morato- rium on war dissent suffered another blow today with the in- troduction of resolution by two Senate Vietnam critics urging withdrawal of American forces from the battle zone within a 'reasonable Unlike two earlier withdrawal proposals, the one submitted by Sens. Frank Church, D-Idaho, and Mark 0. HatSeld does not propose a deadline for an American pulloul. Instead, their resolution criti' cizes the pace of withdrawal set by President as- serts that the continued pres- ence of U.S. .forces can only postpone "the political accom- FUEL OIL SAVE MORE With IORDEN Oil CO.

But together, the proposals are the starting point for a new inquiry into war policy planned by Sen. J. W. Fulbright's Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Hearings Set Its hearings, the first on Nix- on's conduct 'of the war, begin Oct. 27. Secretary of State William P. Rogers has agreed to testify in open session, although no date has yet been set. The committee also has invit' ed testimony from Secretary of Defense Melvin R. Laird. In a: speech prepared for the Senate, Church said the United Slates has no vital interest in preserving the Saigon govern- ment of President Nguyen Van even in the preserva- tion of a non-Communist gov- ernment. "From the standpoint of our interests, we have been fighting an unnecessary war for five long years, making it possibly the most disastrous mistake in the history of American foreign Church said. "It can never be vindicated, it can only be liquidated." Democratic Sens. Harold Hughes of Iowa and Thomas F. Eagleton of Missouri Tuesday proposed a resolution calling for U.S. withdrawal unless the Sai- gon government undertakes ma- jor reforms within 60 days. Introduction of the Iwo resolu- tions indicate the antiwar forces have no inclination to tone down their criticism as called for by Senate'GOP Leader Hugh Scott. He urged last week a two-month moratorium on dissent to allow Nixon to test the Intentions of the new Hanoi regime. A third measure, a bill spon- sored by Sen.- Charles E.
