WEATHER Mostly cloudy through Sunday THE EVENING SUN Vol. 120 No. 113 PHONE «37-3736 HANOVER, PA.,SATURDAY, JAN. 27, 1973 20 PAGES T»» Sections IOC Single Copy Noisy Demonstrators Cheer Reds Cease-Fire Pact Signed PARIS (AP) — Agreement on ending the war and restoring peace to Vietnam was signed today in the ballroom of an old Paris hotel near the Arc de Triomphe. F^or the United States it means the end of the longest war in its history and a conflict paid for in the lives of nearly 46,000 men and billions of dollars. The signing took 18 minutes and ended with champagne toasts. Separate documents were set aside for signing later in the day by the United States and North Vietnam. Outside the hotel demonstrators booed the U.S. and South Vietnamese envoys and cheered the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong as they arrived and left. Secretary of State William P. Rogers signed for the United States and Foreign Minister Tran Van Lam for South Vietnam. On the other side, Foreign Minister Nguyen Duy Trinh signed for North Vietnam and Mrs. Nguyen Tri Binh for the Viet Cong. The main agreement signed by all four parties calls for the end of the fighting in Vietnam at midnight Greenwich Mean Time—or 7 p.m. EST. As the U.S. and South Vietnamese delegations left, the crowd across the street booed and jeered, then burst into the “International” as the Viet Cong foreign minister, Mrs. Binh, came into view. The South Vietnamese delegation announced later that it had expressed “its deep surprise” to the French govern­ ment for permitting the demonstration to take place near the scene of the signing. About 300 French and Vietnamese, waving a forest of North Vietnamese and Viet Cong flags, stood behind police barriers opposite the entrance to the conference center. Signed at the first ceremony were three protocols, or annexes, and the main agreement entitled: “Agreement on Ending the War and Restoring Peace in Vietnam.” SIGNS FOR PEACE — U.S. Secretary of State William P. Rogers hand signs the Vietnam peace agreement at the Hotel Majestic In Paris, France, today to end the longest war In American history. (AP Wirephoto) $26&7 Billion Budget ToGoTo Congress Mon. WASHINGTON (AP) President Nixon has told congressional leaders that his fiscal 1974 budget will total $268.7 billion, an increase of about $19 billion over spending for the current fiscal year which ends June 30. Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield told newsmen of the fiscal 1974 budget after he emerged from a White House meeting Friday called lo brief congressional leaders. The budget goes to Congress Monday. Mansfield said the new budget would carry a deficit of about $12 billion, less than half of the current year’s projected red-ink total of $25 billion. The White House announced that Nixon would make a nationwide radio address Sunday at 6 p.m. to discuss the new budget and “its impact on the nation’s economy and economic stability.” Official confirmation also was made Friday of White House plans to dismantle the White House offices of Economic Opportunity, Teen-Ager Killed In Auto Accident A 15-year-old York youth was fatally injured, seven others w'ere hurt, five seriously, and one man escaped injury in a two-car .crash in Fresyville, Windsor Twp., about 1 a.m. today. Anothony D. Carter died in York Hospital shortly after removal there from the accident scene and his death raised to two the number of persons to die in traffic mishaps in the county since the first of the year. Carter's death, according to Kathryn F'ouhrman, a deputy county coroner, was due to multiple chest and skull injuries. Scott Anderson. 16, York, was admitted to the hospital’s intensive care unit in serious condition, suffering from a fractured skull and spine and internal injuries. Vincent Gemmill, 17, York R.D.12, is also in the ICU department with multiple head and internal injuries and his condition was posted as serious. Others admitted to the hospital were Sue K. Ryan, 16, York, fractured skull. See CRASH-Page f) Emergency Preparedness, Science and Technology and the National Aeronautics and Space Council in an effort to cut costs. Other agencies are to take up their duties. Confirmation of the cutbacks, taken alongside Nixon’s scheduled radio speech, heightened speculation that the White House is anticipating a battle in Congress this year over the budget. That was supported further in a Nixon talk Friday to directors of the National League of Families of American Prisoners and Missing in Southeast Asia. “I’m in the midst of one of our more-difficult meetings— the beginning of a new battle, the battle of the budget,” he told the group. The administration has said that the only way to avoid a tax hike or a big resurgence of inflation is to bring the budget under control, which it says can only be done by slashing costs. Mansfield also told newsmen that Congress should stay within the budget ceiling drawn this year by the White House, the first official word the administration plans to ask Congress for a legal ceiling this year. It lost a battle with Congress for one last year, but Nixon impounded $10 million in appropriated money to trim the budget.

Dunn Gives Outline History OfCodorus Creek Hassle BY AL SCHWARTZ Staff Reporter Reed Dunn, executive director of the York County Planning Commission, presented a fresh but non­ technical review of the Codorus Creek wastewater management controversy to a Hanover audience Friday. Dunn, speaking at a Hanover Area Chamber of Commerce governmental affairs committee luncheon at the Heritage Barn, reviewed the Codorus study and the Army Corps of Engineers’ four recommendations for im- ulementation of the project. One of the recommendations - an all-land spray irrigation idea — has drawn virtually unanimous opposition throughout York County. • Dunn traced the study from its genesis at a public hearing in the York County Courthouse in July of 1971, to the present time when York Countians, especially those in the townships to be most affected by the watershed project, await the Corps of Engineers choice of plans to handle the wastewater treatment At no time did he give any indication which way the planning commission leans.

The county commission, Dunn recalled, was asked to get involved since the commission had statistics as a result of its countywide study of. sewage treatment started two years previously. ‘That first public hearing at York in July, 1971, actually kicked off the army’s study of the Codorus Creek basin and was the first of three hearings to dispense to the public general information and background of the study.’ Dunn said.

Dunn then traced the progress of the study which has now reached a turn in the road where one of four recommendations before the Corps of Army Engineers must be chosen — a plan to meet current standards, all­ eater plan, the basic all-land plan (one which has stirred growing controversy in this area) and the December plan. The plan to meet current standards, Dunn explained, provides for upgrading and expansion of existing wastewater treatment plans necessary to achieve the current performance criteria established by the commonwealth for Codorus Creek Basin The basic all-water plan stipulates for advanced process treatment of all municipal wastewater generated in the study area. Under this plan three advanced process treatment plants would be constructed in addition to the expansion and upgrading of existing plants and only 87 acres of land would be required for the new plants and associated facilities. THE BASIC all-land plan, the one which was created mounting opposition, would provide for treatment of all municipal wastewater generated in the study area by spray irrigation. Before application to the ground, Dunn pointed out, the wastewater would receive secondary treatment either through existing treatment plans or aerated lagoons. The water w'ould then be applied to the ground at a rate of two inches per week. The plan, Dunn said, would require approximately 16,950 acres, meaning the relocation of 330 residences and 200 farmsteads. Dunn also pointed out that if the basic all-land plan would get successful recommendation and were it implemented it would require about 2,400 acres of Penn Twp. and Hanover. ‘Quite a chunk of real estate,’ he noted. He said he has read and has heard that the basic all-land plan is ‘speculative and experimental.’ He also said he has read where such a plan is not new, dating back to the mid 1500s in some areas of the world, and is used in four large cities in the United States.’ THE DECEMBER plan, he has briefly, is a compromise ot the basic all-land plan and the basic all-land place. In the headwaters of the basin, Dunn noted, wastewater would be treated by land application and in the lower basin, the York urban area, treatment Would be achieved incorporating the same procedures used for the basic all water plan He said the IX'cember plan provides a smooth transition from the present treatment system to See CODORUS - Page 6 Nixon; his wife, Pat, and daughter Julie Nixon Eisenhower plan to attend a special church service at 7 p.m. EST at the Key Biscayne Presbyterian Church near the Florida White House, press secretary Ronald L. Ziegler said. Nixon flew to Florida from Washington on Friday shortly after he signed a proclamation designating that hour for prayer and thanksgiving. It coincides with the hour a cease-fire is to take place in Vietnam. The President issued the proclamation after Congress requested one be made. In it, he said in part: “A long and trying ordeal for America has ended. Our nation has achieved its goal for peace with honor in Vietnam. “As a people with a deep and abiding faith, we know that no great work can be In Adams County, Civil Defense Director James D.

(AP) — Americans who have waited to see Vietnam prisoners of war return to home soil may not see much when it actually happens. Military officials who have been preparing “Operation Homecoming” for months said Friday they plan to keep the public, newsmen and photographers at a distance from the freed war prisoners who will be brought here. En route from Vietnam to one of 31 military hospitals near their homes, the POWs will stop at this sprawling air base 50 miles northeast of San FYancisco for varying lengths of time. The first are expected within two weeks. Newsmen were shown Friday how the POWs will be taken from the giant C141 medical evacuation jets that will bring them home from Communist captivity. But the Air Force said the public and newsmen are to be kept behind barriers about 50 Collect Debts HARRISBURG (AP) - The Justice Department claims it will collect some $3.5 million in delinquent debts owed the state during the current fiscal year. Deputy Atty. Gen. Paul J. Carey said recently the total would be about 60 per cent more than that collected in the preceeding fiscal year. yards away. All reunions between the former prisoners and their families will be private, Lt. Col. William Reslie said. He said no interviews will be allowed unless the POW informs the military he would like to give an interview and it is then cleared with a medical officer and an intelligence officer. Some ex-prisoners may be loaded directly from the returning Cl41s into planes that will ferry them to other military hospitals across the country, Reslie added. ♦ * ♦ PHOENIXVILLE, Pa.

Mullens, hospital public relations officer who guided newsmen on a tour of the wards Friday. Thirty other military hospitals around the country, including the U.S. Naval Hospital in South Philadelphia and Patterson Army Hospital in Monmouth, N.J., have been designated sites for the special “Operation Homecoming” planned by the State and Defense departments. The protocols cover the release of prisoners, the operation of the four-nation control commission of Canada, Indonesia, Poland and Hungary and the operation of the temporary Joint Military Commission to be set up by the four parties to the agreements. The documents set aside for Rogers and Trinh were three protocols plus a fourth covering U.S. removal of American mines dropped in North Vietnamese waters. The only difference in the documents in the morning and afternoon session is in the preamble and the designation of the signatories. The agreement signed by all four parties refers only to “the parties participating in the Paris conference on Vietnam.” The U.S.-North Vietnamese documents formally designate the four parties by name, including the Republic of Vietnam, meaning South Vietnam, and the provisional revolutionary government, meaning the Viet Cong. This complex procedure was a compromise avoiding any mutual recognition by the two rival South Vietnamese governments. The signing ends for the United States a war that saw its first soldier killed in action in 1%1. Since then 45,931 Americans have died in action and 303,605 have been wounded. Rogers met for an hour in the morning with French President Georges Pompidou to express President Nixon’s appreciation for Pompidou’s help in concluding the Vietnam peace agreement. France has hosted Vietnam peace talks since May 1968. Woman Escapes Assailant A 21-year-old Hanover woman today was resting at her home after a terrifying experience Friday night, climaxed by a split-second escape from a knife-wielding assailant. The woman, whose identity has been withheld by police, left her place of employment at a local factory about 10:30 p.m. and when she got into her car was confronted by a man lying in the back of the vehicle. Flashing a knife, the man told the woman to start the car and follow his directions. The woman was told to drive north on Broadway and as she approached an intersection she noticed a car waiting to pull out. Out of sheer desperation, police said, the woman drove in front of the other car, jammed the brakes and threw her assailant, still in the back seat, off balance. The woman leaped from the car and her assailant made a grab for her but missed, police said they were told. Hysterical, the woman ran to the other motorist for aid. At the same moment the man leaped from her car and fled on foot. Marathon Dance Of ^30s Planned STATE COLLEGE, Pa.
