Dirts, a 19-year- old sophomore at Georgetown University from Canfield, Ohio. Release ot the personal let- ter, rare occurrence in the Nixon White House, served to underscore the. President's con- cern over the course', of the quest for peace and the public's attitude toward the war. The White House announced .that Nixon would make'a na- tionwide, television and radio ad- dress'.

Ziegler, the White House press secretary, said the timing keyed to the Nov. 1 anniversary of the total bomb- ing halt in North Vietnam. Nixon met for TI minutes Monday with his delegates to the Paris peace talks, Ambas- sador Henry Cabot Lodge and Philip C. Dean. The W h 1 t e House had no comment on the latest In a series of meetings the President has held with dip- lomatic and military leaders. The President recognized, in his letter to Dicks, the "respon- sibility" of Americans to make known their feelings about the war, but he contrasted that ob- ligation with his own sense ol duty. "I must consider." he saH, "the consequences o( each pro- posed course of action short- term and long-term, domestic and world-wide, direct and in- direct.

By emphasizing the "human and international" consequences of'his policies. NUon appeared to be restating his resolve that a.settlement of the' war must neither imperil the lives of the South Vietnamese nor under- mine American policy in South- east Asia.

Society's dumping of sewage into its rivers and streams poses a greater hazard than just the death of fish. Scientists reported last year fish can .pick up human disease germs and spread them back lo humans when eaten. White perch caught in Chesa- peake Bay, dumping ground for several rivers running through heavily populated areas, were found to contain germs which could cause typhoid fever, dys- entery and tuberculosis. Coho salmon caught in the Great Lakes were impounded by the government early this year when found to contain dan- gerously high levels of the pesti- cide DDT. And University of Michigan scientists say pesti- cides seeping into Lake Michi- gan destroy nearly half the eggs laid Jby salmon. the injection of hot water or air into lakes, rivers and streams, also is causing increasing concern. It comes from industrial plants, electric -generators and irriga- tion, and kills fish by destroying their or food.

Further. support came Mon- day from W. Averell Harriman, the original U.S. Paris peace ne- gotiator under the Johnson ad- ministration. Speaking'with con- siderable emotion, the former New York governor said, "We're a free country paying a tremendous price for the war and entitled to dissent." Civil Rights leader Whitney M.

"Under some earlier was accomplished by exempting from the tax cate- gories of goods such as food, clothing and drugs." However, the subcommittee said, the exemption approach permits luxury food and cloth- ing to escape the lax. Instead, it recommended a "credit against the income tax based upon the sales tax paid for necessaries." To Face Scrutiny If the income and sales tax proposals clear the parent com- mittee and are incorporated in- to the task force's final report, they then will face the scrutiny of the 424-member legislature which traditionally has turned back in dtcisive fashion all ef- forts to gain approval of such "broad-based" taxes. Several proposals for income and sales taxes were rejected during the regular legislative session earlier this year. Peter- son says he will call the law- makers back in a special ses- sion next February to consider the task force proposals. Such a recommendation also would place Peterson in a pre- carious position since he cre- ated the last force. He ran on a party platform which called for resisting broad-based taxes, and he recently said at a news conference he would not be bound by the task force recom- mendations and would be forced to consider the proposals with ah eye lo what the legis- lature mlghl accept. The subcommittee concluded "an income lax should be ap- plied lo all income-producing activity in order lo comply with the requirement of the New Hampshire constitution thai taxpayers not be classified. However, it added, "a system of personal exemptions in a flat- rate tax can be designed to shield low-income persons from the tax and introduce progres- sivity into the tax on other tax- payers." The subcommittee said the legislature had "looked desper- ately Cor new stop-gap sources and selected .low-cost meals, among others" this year. The report said New Hamp- shire has no over-all tax policy other than a. general L attitude thai "everybody .should be taxed but me." The recommendations for a broad-based tax -were included among proposals that also would: repeal the stock-in-trade tax, machinery tax, interest and TASK FORCE City Group Fights Fluoridation Plan A committee created to fight fluoridation of the Nashua water supply elected new officers at a meeting last night and adopted a set of purposes to present the "other side" in the coming flu- oridation Named as the health adviser of the newly formed Nashua Committee for Pure Water was Dr. Ronald F. Unzara, a local chiropaclor. Other officers are Raymond A. Labombarde, chairman; John Sienkiewicz, secretary, and Dan Woodruff, treasurer. "Compulsory mass fluoridation has not been investigated suf- ficently is to the dangerous side effects in the young, as well as the elderly, for long-term usage which may affect the physiologic- al functioning of body parts other than the Dr. Lanzara' told the group. Labombarde stated that hil primary consideration was "lo prevent any compulsory mass which is a direct violation of every individual's constitutional right, even there is no proven dcterminable and serious side effects as in the case of fluoridation. Formation of the anli-fluorida- lion committee comes in the wake of a petition presented 10 City Clerk Lionel Guflbert Friday lo have the fluoridaticn issue put on the November ballot. Presenting the petition were Drs. Robert W. LavaUee and Arthur Comoili, both local den- lisls, and Aldcrman-at-Large Bertrand J. Bouchard, chairman of a committee supporting flu- oridation.
