.1.6 BRIDGEPORT POST Thursday, Jan. 6, 19/2. Holman Foundation Seeking To Break Singer's 1971 Will A fight to break the will of the late Libby Holman Schanker, popular "torch" singer of the 1920s, was launched in Superior court yesterday. The litigation is in the form of an appeal filed by the Libby Holman Foundation, Inc., in protest against the admission to pro-, bale in Stamford,. on June 24, 1971,'of a will executed by Miss Holman 15 days earlier and nine days before her death. The' disputed instrument was admitted to probate as the last will of the former singer by Stamford Probate Court Judge Louis J. lacovo, June 24, 1971. The Foundation alleges in its appeal that it is not named anywhere in the document as a beneficiary of the estate of Miss Holman. At the time of Miss Holman's death, the Foundation claims further, there existed an instrument dated'Sept. 12, 1966, purporting to be the wjll of the deceased. There also existed on June 9, 1971, according to the Foundation, cod? cils dated Sept. 12, 1966, and Feb. 14, 1969, to the purported will executed Sept. 12, 1966. The Foundation says it was a beneficiary of Miss Holman's estate under the purported will and codicil da tec Sept. 12, 1966, and the second codicil does rot alter or modify the bequest made to it by the provisions of the first will and codicil. Furthermore, . the Foundatior asserts, it received no notice o! the June 24, 1971, hearing at which the disputed will was ad mitted to probate. · By the terms of her 1971 will, Miss Holman bequeathed hei Stamford- farmhouse . and 25.1 acres ,pf surrounding land/to Bos ton University's/ 1 ScHOol tof; 'Ap' pi led 'Fi h e.

A Norden spokesman, in disclosing the contract award made yesterday by NASA, emphasized, however, that 1 the division is not yet involved in work on the actual space shuttle program. NASA Is not expected to let contracts for that program to major aircraft corporations until this summer. The spokesman for the division said the new NASA contract will not affect Norden's current employment situation. Jobs, Not Affected The NASA contract calls for the Norwalk company to develop and deliver by September 1372 a "Re programable Symbol Generator System" which will be installed in a spacecraft simulator cockpit at NASA's Manned Space Center in Houston, Tex. The pilots display system is based on a cathode ray tube and looks similar to a small television - screen.

Education Commissioner Wiliam Sanders has said Connecticut should follow the example of other states in assum- ng nearly all the cost of local elementary and secondary education. He noted that he had discussed the plan briefly with the governor but not with the state Commission for Higher Education. Meskill said there always will re school districts that want to offer more to their students than a state funded system will permit. He also said he questioned :he grounds of court suits that :hallenge the use of property axes to support public education. The suits maintain that the system leads to poorer education in poorer communities, especially the cities. Meskili noted that the tax base varies widely between, cities and towns with the cities needing to provide more through taxes.

Marilyn Pearson, R-Stratford, said today proponents of a state income tax "are trying to frighten the people of Connecticut" into, accepting such a lax "by claiming Connecticut will not receive revenue sharing benefits unless we adopt an income tax." In a statement, hilling al income tax supporters as "incurable tax addicts," Rep. Pearson said that the income tax advocates "are really afraid that if the General Assembly docs nol adopt an income tax, there is a strong possibility that money derived from revenue sharing will be sent directly to local communities and bypass the big spending bureaucrats in the state government." Such a development, "would help the individual taxpayers and benefit local communities," contended. Jump ; From Ziro The HI spokesman pointed out per cent-sales tax jn bills above $2Cj wasn't a jump 'rom 5 per cent to 6'/$ per rail, as in the case of consumer goods and services, but a j u m p from zero to 6V4 per cent, because irior lo the new sales tax legislation there was no sales tax on utility bills. The UI advanced a flicker of hope for the February electric bills, however, indicating that a slight reduction in the cost of low-sulfur oil during January will make fuel adjustment costs in the February bills somewhat low- r. In the final analysis, however, the 8.8 per cent increase is here to stay, qrtd so is the 6'/5 per cent sales lax for bills over $20. As for Ihe fuel adjustments, they are expected to fluctuate in accordance wilh the quantities of low-sulfur fuel oil available and the problems encountered in transportation, since currently all such fuel is imported. WHITE HOUSE PRIMARY BILL SEEN BY COLLINS she About %' per cent ol the na- Minority Leader Francis Collins, Brookfield, said Wednesday the 1372 General Assembly most likely will approve a direct presidential primary for Connecticut.

He said the legislative lead crs he had spoken with "have tion's high-grade domcsticihecn fairly responsive" to the bauxite ore, the source of alum-|idea .of a direct presidential pri- Lnum, comes [rom Arkansas. mary. Theodore McCauley, Remington Arms public relations director,' again denied reports today that the company might be moving its operations out of Bridgeport, and added that Remington park, a -400-acre company-owned tract is a vital factor in its operations. Mr. McCauley said that Remington park, which borders the back of the Nob Hill apartment complex and Broadbrldge avenue, serves as a .''buffer zone that is necessary to protect the residential areas and other, industries." The area is used for the storage of smokeless powder. At a Bridgeport Conservation commission meeting last night in City Hally Alderman John J. Koons, R-133rd, made a casual suggestion that, perhaps Remington could be approached by the commission in an attempt lo gain the use of the land for the cily. The suggestion was made In connection with an address given by Joseph Ward of Ihe State Department of Environmental Protection on Ihe use of land within a municipality by Conservation commissions. The Bridgeport commission, under the supervision of acting secretary Victor Muniec, wil undertake within the next ten days the task of researching anc indexing possible sites of lani donations in the city. Aftcnstrcssing the necessity lo "explore all possibilities," Mr Ward gave the floor to Alder man Kopns, who raised the question of Remington park's future status. Mr. Koons said he hat heard reports that Remington might be considering the p° s slbility of moving out of Bridge port. Mr. McCauley said today Ilia Ihere were no such plans, lie also stressed lhat Remington park was vital to the company's operations here. 'Vest Pocket Parks' i The Bridgeport Conservation commission and members from neighboring towns' commissions, would like to see Ihe establishment of "vest-pocket parks" in neighborhoods throughout the city. For this to become possible, it is first necessary that available land resources be made known. The indexing project is designed specifically lor this purpose. Mr. Muniec said that volunteers ivouid perform the legwork, going hrough deeds, learning the alll- udc of landowners, and explain ng the benefits to them. It would be possible for'two r more communities to act joint- y in the establishment of a park, bus, as Mr.'Ward pointed oul. entitling them to more federal and state funds than if the project were undertaken by one mu nicipaiity. Mr. Ward also' encouraged the Bridgeport commission lo take advantage of the many grants available for land study and con servatlon purposes. He specifically focused las. night on Ford foundation grants The foundation will provide up to $5,008 lo a conservation group, provided a matching sum is mode available by the group no later than the end of the following fiscal year. The Ford foundation, according to Mr. Ward, is looking for "innovative" groups wlio keep the public "well-informed" on their activities. The public should be Inviled lo certain commission meetings, dyers should bo distributed, annual reporls should be made to Ihe cily, and a comprehensive classification of land resources should be undertaken by the Bridgeport commission, Mr. Ward said. The commission will further evaluate its plans for land sludy nnd granl applications al its next meeting on Jan. I! al 10:30 a.m. in the city harbormaster's office.
