Sales Record NEW YORK -- Union Carbide Corp. sales for the first quarter of 1964 were $417,455,000, setting a new first-quarter record, Birny Mason Jr., president, announced today. This was an increase of 9 per cent above last year's sales of $383,669,000. Net income was $40,617,000, or $1.35 a share, 17 per cent above the $34,853,000 or $1.10 a share, reported for the first quarter of 1963. The benefits from the new tax bill added about ?3 million, or 10 cents a share, to first-quarter earnings. Mason noted that sales of chemicals and plastics, and all products serving steel markets, have been particularly strong. He commented further: "Assuming generally good business conditions for the remainder of the year, results for 1904 should show Improvement over 1903." MONTPELIER -- By May 1, travelers along Vermont's state highways will find three changes in route numbers, the Highway Department announced today. Route F-3 in Grand Isle has been renumbered Vermont Route 314, while newly numbered Route 242 will carry highway users from Route 118 in Montgomery Center past the Jay Peak area to its junction with Route 101. Other changes, says the department, Involve Routes 8 and 100 in the southern area of the Bloodmobile Arrives Again on Wednesday Wednesday, April 29, the Red Cross Bloodmobile will again come to the Elks' Barn. The quota will be 100 pints of blood, the same amount needed from each blood drawing for some years. To meet this, it Is necessary for more than 100 donors to volunteer because there are always a few who have to cancel on that day. Mrs. Robert M. Parmelee, chairman of the Red Cross blood program in Bennlngton County, announced this morning that recruitment is being carried out this week by telephone and at the industrial plants in Bennington, North Bennington and Shaftsbury. Those working on the telephone committee are: Mrs. Lewis Carpenter, Mrs Frederick Ester, Mrs. John Kennedy Jr., Mrs. Bernard Leamy, Mrs. John Litster and Mrs, "'K'.iam Sennett. At the last Bloodmobile visit in Bennington on Feb. 26 new records were reached In the Gallon Club by the following who received pin awards: Leon Eldred was given the highest award as he gave his 40th pint of blood and received the five-gallon pin; William Jordan, Robert J. Myers and Rev. Stephen C, Greene were awarded two-gallon pins and Dr. Abraham J. Moskovitz, §ar« Ion Rackliffe and Mrs. Dorothy Sweet reached the gallon mark, thus becoming new members of the Gallon Club. Meeting the blood needs of all Vermont hospitals and all Vermont residents as this Red Cross program does requires the support of many volunteer donors, Mrs. Parmelee said. Those in the Bennington areas have continued to meet this challenge since 1950 when the blood program covering the state began. They can well be proud of this record, she said, and all working for the success of the ei tire program are grateful to all these donors. The doors at the Elks' Barn will be open from ll;45untilD:30 next Wednesday. Transportation is always available by calling 2-9458, the Red Cross office. For a special appointment, call the same number, or if prefer' red, donors can walk in at their convenience. Municipal Court A Municipal Court jury was expected to reach a verdict this afternoon after hearing testimony all morning in the case of Robert Connors of East Dorset, who has been charged by the state with trapping wild animals with untagged traps. Connors previously pleaded not guilty to the charge. Both State's Atty. R. Marshall Wltten and Atty, Stephen H. Gilman, defense attorney, agreed that one of the two traps set by Connors the day the alleged violation took place was not marked. Gilman and his client maintained, however, that since a tag bearing Connors' name was attached to one of the traps, and since both traps won? chained to a single stake, both traps were properly identified. The purpose of the state law requiring tags, after all, is to identify them, Gilman said. The violation, at most, was purely technical, he maintained. Wittt?n rebutted that Connors' failure to tag both traps was a clparc'iit violation of the law, and that both he and the game warden would be derelict In their duty if they didn't prosecute the defendant. The chief witness for the state, George Thuren of Manchester, a state game warden, testified that on April 11 lie discovered two muskrat traps owned by Connors submerged In several inches of water near the Rutland Railway right of way in East Dorset. The game warden claimed that one of the traps was identified by a tag bearing the words "Connors and Sons, East Dorset," but said that the other trap hadn't been marked In any way.

Duplicate numbers 8 and 100 will remain on the road through Stamford from the Massachusetts state line to Heartwellville. The duplicate Route 8 designation is being dropped to leave Route 100 only, designating the road from Iteartwellvlllc through Readsboro, Whitlngham and Wilmington northerly, thus carrying through the idea of developing Route 100 as a centrally located scenic highway. Route 3 is newly designated irom Heartwellville north to Route 9 at Searsburg. Sirloin or Porterhouse STEAK ib 89 SUNDAY PAPERS - OPEN SUNDAYS 8:30 a.m. -1p.m. YOTT'S Gage St. Thuren told the court that he then went to Connors' home and that Connors readily admitted that the traps were his. Gilman made something of an issue of Witten's remark in his opening statement that one trap was ''improperly tagged." This trap, according to Tlmn?n's testimony, was identified by a paper insert bearing Connors' name in a metal frame. When Connors took the stand, lie produced several similar tags, purchased, he said, from a sporting goods store. Gilmnn submerged them in a glass of water to prove that they were rust proof, as required by law, and that the name written on them wouldn't run. Witten objected violently, and called the demonstration a "grandstand stunt," w h I c h wouldn't prove that the tags would stand up if left under water for some time. In testimony that followed Witten's statement, Connors said that lie had used the same type of tags earlier In the winter during the beaver trapping season, and the name written on them was still legible after two months under water. These tags were shown to the jury. Truck Avoids Tractor, Crashes In North Rupert NORTH RUPERT -- A Warrensburg, N.Y., man escaped serious i n j u r y Wednesday afternoon when the truck he was driving went out of control on Vermont 30 as a result of the man's effort to avoid a collision with a f a r m tractor that was entering the highway. The t r u c k , a tractor-trailer rig, received some 58,000 damage, however, after It had careened first off the right side of the road, snapping a power pole, and back to the left side where it collided broadside with a tree. Driver of the truck was John R. Sweet, 21, of Warrenshurg, N.Y. Sweet, according to the state police report, was proceeding north on Vermont 30. Pulling into the road ahead of him lie saw a f a r m tractor with a manure spreader in tow. Thinking that the tractor was going to proceed north on the road in the same direction, Sweet began to pnll into the ' l e f t lane to pass it. A moment later, however, he realized the tractor was crossing the highway, and promptly braked his rig, sending it on Its collision path. Police noted the roads were wet at the time. Driver of the f a r m tractor was John P. Steele of North Rupert. The truck, however, made no contact with h i m .

Currently the village district operates secondary facilities for which a number of outside students pay tuition to attend. Under the proposed arrangement, the control would pass to the union district, and the village district would no longer have Its tuition students. Thus the present tutltlon Income, anil its subsequent loss, have to be taken Into account in the tax calculations. And, as part of the shift, the union district would assume the remaining outstanding debt held by the village district on the new vocational arts wing at the Benhl building. This factor also has to be taken into consideration In making future tax estimates. But two facts, both relating to the present tuition payments, Village Tax Rate education of the outside students.

Webb said Wednesday night that Gov. Philip Hoff will spend the summer "shadow-boxing" while the Republican primary candidates train with sparring partners for the main bout. "The Republican party is providing Vermonters opportunity for the fullest discussion of every issue before the electorate this year," he said before a joint Republican supper meeting sponsored by the towns of Addison, Way- bridge, Panton and Bridport at the Addison Central School. New DES Office Opened by Stale At Montpelier MONTPELIER -- About 200 persons, Including Gov. Philip H. Hoff and Robert C. Goodwin, administrator of the U.S. Bureau of Employment Security, gathered here Wednesday to mark formal opening of the new office quarters of the Department of Employment Security in the National Life Building. Mrs. Stella B. Hackel, Employment Security commissioner introduced the governor and other guests to state department and board hearts, legislative committee chairmen, state senators, representatives of the press, the DES Advisory Council, and others, including Dorothy Pendergast, regional director of the Wornens Bureau, Dcpt. of Labor. The governor and Goodwin both paid tribute to the leadership they said Mrs. Hackel has furnished over the past year in regenerating the department's activities. Both said that the new DES central ofiico typifies the commissioner's efforts to improve Employment Security operations in the state. Gov. Hoff said the new DES building, now being planned, is another "forward - looking step" In the general raising of sights to which Mrs. Hackel has directed unstinting effort. Remarks were also made at the luncheon by Montpelier Mayor Manuel Canas Jr., National Life Vice President Morton Laird, and A r t h u r C, Gernes, regional administrator of the Bureau of Employment Security. River Basin Hearings Start HANOVER, N.H. (UP!)--The first of two hearings into the future of the Connecticut River Basin was held Wednesday. A five year study costing S2.7 million is being undertaken by the U.S. A r m y Corps of Engineers in cooperation with 17 state a n d federal agencies. Wednesday's hearing, at Dart- month College, was called to summarize efforts made so far. The second hearing w a s scheduled for May 20 in St. Johnsbury, Vt. The river basin comprises 11,151 square miles and runs through four states -- New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts and Connecticut. The study is being financed by $1.7 million in congressional appropriations and $1 million from cooperating federal and slate agencies. John W. Leslie, chief of the engineering division of the corps of engineers, said the survey grev out of a Senate Committee finding two years ago that 300 billion gallons of water Is being used every day in the nation and the figure will jump to 900 billion a day by the end of the century. "Town and county meetings have been held or are planned almost every day this month," Webb said. "And prospects are for this concerted organizational effort to continue until November." The state chairman added, "We hear only one- side from the Democrats and for the most part it isn't even clear what that side is." "There is no doubt that this is a Republican year," he said. "The people have been stirred to action by our Democratic governor's lack of it." Webb said he would like to know what use was being made of the federal money allocated for planning in Vermont. "Planning coordinator Paul Guare has put a lot of time and work into preparing a massive roll call record showing which members of the Vermont House of Representatives voted in favor of Gov. Hoff's legislative program. "How does this sort of study apply to federally-supported state planning for the future of Vermont?" he asked. "It seems a very curious way to spend the taxpayers' money."

Stating that he would like to see a union high school built, Clayton said he nellves voters would not turn the present proposal down on the basis of need tion in Periods 1,5, G and 8(those or the union board's proposed at the beginning and end of the program. But he did see the possibility of the proposed bond issue being rejected because of the board's site selection.

Thus, in effect, the village district is subsidizing the Village Schools Continued from Page 1 building is being used.

He asked the board if it had made as thorough Heath said, the idea of double study of iiie Soldiers' Home site sessions is one that "nobody likes" and is one which "would shortchange the students themselves."

He said that to end this commitment would require the permission of the state Education Department, which, he JollllSOll said, would be "very reluctant" to do so unless the feeder districts could make some equal or better arrangement with another district or districts.

The union board, Williams said, had to rely on the expert opinion on the matter of the flood threat, though he was aware that there are residents who feel this to lie a minimal or non - existent risk. As to costs, one item which boosted the Soldiers' Home total figure would be the relocation of the state Highway Department buildings and equipment. Williams said estimates of $40,000 and $42,000 for this had been furnished independently by the District Highway Engineer Ivor Pelsue and by the Highway Department on the state level. Clayton felt there were some "flexible elements" in these estimates, and asked Williams if the estimates meant the union district would have to build new buildings tor the highway department or would simply move the existing buildings. Williams replied he did nut know the answer. Clayton also felt the maintenance of the Soldiers' Home flat terrain would be less than the sloping terrain of the Town Farm site. He also expressed some concern about the additional transportation costs which the Town Farm site would entail. There were several other comments and questions from others attending the meeting.
