Absent was Aldernuit-al-Large Maur- ice L. Bouchard. Need City Planner Fred D. McCut- chen has advanced the need for a transportation study on several occasions. But he encoontered Opposition from Sullivan" on the grounds of cost and on the'limited Implementa- tion that study reports general- ly receive. In his letter, Eldredge stated that in recent discussion with state highway officials and with the city's traffic consultant, 'we hare been reminded that the Nashua Hudson regional area will be required to an on going comprehensive transportation study and plan- ning program by 1J70, if the area is to remain eligible for future federal highway funds." The Planning Board, he said, considers transportation to be one of the most pressing prob- lems in the region. Regardless of federal requirements and funds, the planning and solving of transportation problems should rate a high priority, he added. That is why, Eldredge said, the .board recommends approv- al of the resolution allowing a grant application. Given federal and state par- ticipation, the local share of the study's costs, he said, would be one-sixth of the total cost of the study. U.N. ges sue By FRANK CORMIER NATIONS, UNITED N.Y.

HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON (AP) The Nixon administration Is pre- pared to negotiate an end to B5J raids in South Vietnam in return for enemy steps to de-escalate the war, U.S. officials report. The eight-engine, high-flying bombers are the most dreaded and least costly of American weapons being used in the war, officials say, and some believe the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong might be willing to pay a price to'get the attacks stopped. President Nixon suspended BM raids for 36 hours last week at the end of a cease-fire called by the enemy to memorialize the late President Ho Chi Minh of North Vietnam. Cites Reason White House sources said this week i major reason for the suspension was to make clear to the new leadership in Hanoi that everything in the war is negoti- able except the right of self-de- termination for the South Viet- namese people. The primary cause of the sus- pension was military. Nixon fell that if Ihe enemy intended to prolong the cease-fire Indefinite- ly he wanted to encourage them rather than take the initiative with new bombing raids which could quickly wreck any such attempt at de-escalation. But Nixon's hopes, however slender, were quickly blasted as enemy troops resumed-.ope ra- tions when the cease-fire ended. Last week officials here de- nied any signal had been direct- ed toward the enemy for which the U.S. expected a response; Tuesday, however, in explaining President Nixon's latest troop withdrawal decision. House sources said the BS2 sus- pension definitely was a signal, one to which the new leadership in Hanoi might be slow in react- ing. .President Nixon has indicated for months that If he could not negotiate a mutual. withdrawal of Iroops and a peace settlement he wanted to .the war as much as possible by action not requiring agreement with the enemy. At present, only his troop withdrawal program seems to offer any immediate hope for progressively extricating U.S. from the but the pos- sibility of working out a de-esca- lation arrangement actively in- terests. Wishington policy mak- ers. Such an arrangement could be negotiated or might be ar- rived at by parallel actions. White House and Slate De- partment sources report the Paris peace talks are totally deadlocked. While there is some speculation the posl-Ho Chi Minh regime in Hanoi might ba more peacefully inclined, top policy makers here are deeply skeptical. "We have to realize that the dead hand cf their departed leader is likely to paralyze their policy for quite some official said.
