1st ED. 58 THE HARTFORD COURANT: Wedn.iJ.y, Nevtmbar 29, 1972 T Middletown Board To Review Roads Dispute MIDDLETOWN - A dispute over rebuilding sections of Arbutus Street and Bartholomew Road is expected to be settled today when the public works committee holds a special 4 p.m. meeting in City Hall. Mayor Anthony J. Sbona. who Monday declined to sign contracts for the work because regulations do hot permit any con tract to be increased or decreased by more than 25 per cent of the bid, said he would attend. He added he believes an amicable agreement can be reached. Councilman Anthony S. Marino, committee chairman, said Tuesday when the committee voted at its last meeting to award, contracts for work on both streets but to reduce the amount of work, it also set up several alternatives. Alternate Flans One was, that all of Bartholomew, Road rebuilding planned this year be carried out and Ar butus. Street work delayed or that new bids be asked for both jobs, with the amount of road work on each to be reduced so that not more than $130,000 is spent. That sum is what the Public works Departmnt has re maining from $500,000 it bor rowed tor the summer roaa work program. Sbona thinks whatever additional money is needed could come from the General Fund surplus or from federal revenue sharing but he made it clear Tuesday he does not intend to press the committee to accept that proposal. Secret Session The last committee meeting was an executive session so what happened was hot made public. The committee voted to reduce the amount of work to be done by the low bidder for Bartholomew Road, T. C. De Luca Co. of Wilhmantic, to a maxi mum of $75,000, and on Arbutus Street, by low bidder F. Biafere Co. of Menden to $50 000. Both figures represented more than a 25 per cent cut in the amount bid on both jobs and so violated city ordinances, as Sbona said. In order to get within the 25 per cent reduction and make contract awards legal, the com. mittee would need about $18,000 more than is available. Calusine Dunklee Home Restoration Being Studied MIDDLETOWN - A proposal lhat the so-called Dunklee home on Newfield Street, acquired by the city under the federal open space act, be restored for use by private or public agencies is being studied, according to Stanley Kozlowski, director of youth services. Kozlowski said William Donahue, who is interested in the preservation of old structures, approached him with the idea that the Dunklee bouse might be used as a youth center once it is restored. The youth services director arranged a meeting with Herbert Darbe of the Connecticut Historical Commission and he indicated to the local group that federal grants probably would be available for use in restoring the old dwelling with the city to participate through services rendered in the restoration or with an appropriation of funds to assist in the work. Kozlowski added that Mayor Anthony J. Sbona talked with him, Darbe, Donohue and city planner George Reif and explained the city's position in regard to the Dunklee house. The mayor said he did not feel the council would approve an outlay of .funds for its restoration and that the city was interested in restoring the property to the tax list by way of a sale or lease to private parties. The Dunklee home is. believed to have been erected about 1790. Kozlowski said Tuesday that he and others interested m the project plan to invite members of the citv Commission on the Arts to a discussion ot wnat might be done with the old brick dwelling.

Buckley Jr., a controversial ex pert on American conservatism, Monday devoted a 45-mimite speech to a harsh and sweeping critique on the Nixon adminis tration's new China policy. Speaking before an audience of the Yale Political Union, Buckley wove together his experiences as a reporter covering President Nixon's trip to China and his own special brand of conservative philosophy. Buckley, the editor of National Review, characterized Communist China as. "a country in which people don't have liber EV to read what they want to read", write what they want to write. or travel where they want to i travel." He called the new China policy a move '"toward ideological egalitarianism," signifying our willingness to establish foreign policy ties with the country, "however repugnant its ideology is to ours." Recalling an incident from the administration into supporting a tough air piracy law, Sen. Harrison A. Williams Jr., D-N.J., said Tuesday. Recounting 31 hijack attempts in the United States so far this year, 10 of them successful, Williams predicted the climate was now right for will be I swift enactment of such a j Maoists although he was unable games statute after the 93rd Congress; to touch the souls of Amerjcgji convenes Jan. 3.
