Want Radios 'Along with.this decision, the commissioners voted to favor the installation of radios In DPW vehicles, including rub- bish packers, and the purchase ot new packers to up-date and Improve the collection fleet. Bids.for four new packers were opened by the aldermanic finance committee about a year ago. The award was held up pend- ing a decision on contracting rubbish collections a sle? long advocated by Mayor Den- nis J. Sullivan, chairman of the Board of Public Works. Bids from private collection firms were opened in May by the aldermanic finance com- mittee. Months of deliberation and meetings have ensued with the aldermen repeatedly asking the commissioners to provide firm cost figures for the cur- rent collection operations and a firm recommendation as to whether the city should Job out this sen-ice. Leading the BPW to make a final stand on the question last night was Commissioner Ken- neth E. Hartz whose arguments McGovern Scores Triumph Food Stamp Program Liberalized By H.

Backs McGovera In it major personal triump! for McGovern, the Senate votei 54-40 Wednesday to chuck the recommendations of its own Ag riculture Committee and adop proposals-by the South Dakota Democrat aimed at making food stamps'available, to. every poo: the nation.' theni Ignoring conservativi crte'j ;thaflt waj creating i and signing the "death -sentence" of foot stamps, the Senate sent the' pro- posals on to the House by a vote What happens now is any body's guess. The McGovern proposals go first to: the House Agriculture Committee-where Chairman W R. Poage, D-Tex., harbors deep-seated hostility to such programs.; Essentially the McGovern amendment to the Food Stamp Act would authorize 11.23 billion this year, billion next year and Jl.5 billion by fiscal 1972. It would make free stamps available to families with in- comes under a month, allow any family making less than a year to buy them with only their signature attesting the Income, and set up machin- ery to force every county in the country to provide food stamps. The administration last spring asked for doubling of this year's million food stamp recom- mendation and a hike to bil- lion each-of the next two fiscal years. The administration proposals would hare allowed free food Group Supports Statewide tax CONCORD, N.H. (AP) A subcommittee of the New Hampshire' Citizens Task Force Is recommending a statewide far, "probably on personal or family pay for a itatewide salary scale. The recommendation was in a report Issued Wednesday by the subcommittee on primary and secondary education which sug- gested sweeping changes in the date's educational system, in- cluding reducing the number of superintendents from 42 to five. stamps for families with an in- come of less than a month, would have left it up to the states to continue certifying who could participate and would have moved more slowly in ,di-( rection of making stamps avail-, able to all. The administration sought to' allow families. up to a month in food stamps while the McGovern proposals allow up to a month. Sen. Allen J.-ElIender, chairman of- the Agriculture Commitlee said the House would never accept such a vast increase in the program. Although the proposals that passed the Senate were co-spon- sored by such. leading liberals as Democrats Walter F. Mon- dale of Minnesota and Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts the credit is most likely to accrue to McGovern. Pushes Campaign For more than a year the for- mer political science professor has made a campaign to erid hunger a keystone of the same liberalism that 'drove him to his for the IKS Dem- ocratic presidential nomination. As chairman of the Senate Se- lect Committee'on Nutrition and Human known as the hunger Govern has roamed across the country on fact-finding and speech-making trips and.- held countless hearings 'while mak- ing a case for exanding the food stamp program. At the'same time, credit has gone to him for prompting what have seemed to be dramatic turn-arorads by the White House.' During, last spring's White House agonizing over where to trim the budget, word leaked out that a decision. had been made not to put any money into expanding the food stamp jro- gram or any other facet of the war on' hunger. McGovern bitterly criticized the administration and sum- moned Secretary Clifford1 Har- din to a specially arranged hearing. When'the two men inet they laid out a broad program for com- batting hunger that included an immediate doubling of food stamp outlays. Then earlier this month word began to circulate again that the administration planned to scrap the food stamp system al- together once'its new welfare program got off the ground. Again the outraged McGovern summoned Finch and Hardin and again they appeared to out- line not a retreat but a bold new program. Both secretaries insisted as did other administration offi- cials there bad been a complete misunderstanding and that at no time were there plans to phase- on! food stamps. were buttressed by cost figures supplied by J. Gilmore Shea. Shea, head of the depart- ment's newly formed sanitation division, was named about a month ago by the commission- ers to lake over the supervi- sion of the rubbish collection irvice. His figures showed that with a full complement of nine pack- ers the city could collect rub- bish at about a year less that a private firm. AH four commissioners, Hartz, Laurier Soucy, H. Eugene Rex- ford and Robert W. Pillsbury, voted in favor of retaining the collection operation. Mayor Abstains Sullivan abstained from vot- ing, saying if the city was to keep the operation It should be retained on a temporary basis with the possibility of re-open- ing bids later. Hartz opened discussion on the question with a prepared statement Refuse collection, a dilemma for Nashua, is long overdue for a decision on the part of the Board of said. Public he "This is a problem which has faced the city since before my appointment to the board. At- tempts have been made to prove that contracting out re- fuse collection was in the best interest of the city. "However, the bids used in making this decision were sub- sequently found to be unaccept- able. Recognizing that ineffi- ciencies exist in this of our operation, it ii nevertheless clear that the service of refuse collection can accomplished at the least cost to the by having the Public Works De- partment perform this service."

Peterson said he thought it was just as ira portant to recognize the gooc points in the food distribution program as well as its deficien- cies to encourage other officials to take part in the program.

When he finally, and reluc tantly, became a candidate for the second job, it was too late. Baker acknowledged the job of campaigning among senators was a difficult task. And that was particularly tnie for a rela- tive newcomer, only three years a senator, challenging an elder. Scott worked with the tradi- tions of seniority on his side. He worked hard, too, to stress the theme of idea that as whip, and as acting lead- er since Dirksen's death, he was entitled to a promotion. Baker's youth was his major a major liability as well.
