Timii NIWJ Servitm PARIS -- With the vanguar of the 1965 tourist invasion a ready entrenched in stratc g i cafes and museums, the govern ment has launched a large-seal campaign to persuade Frcncl men to treat the visitors with kindness. After widespread reports high prices and rucfc treatmen of tourists by Frenchmen in re cent years, tourism has droppet from first rank as an earner o foreign currency lo Ihird. It Is time, Secretary of Slat for Tourism Pierre Dumas tol the opening ceremony of the Na tional Campaign of Welcome and Friendliness, "To revive th French tradition nf hospitality and courtesy." Spruce Up Ordered Border posls arc to be sprucei lip with paint and flowers, am custom and police manning them were urged to be polite rather than "agents of repression." Women visitors will be greetec at Paris airports with a single rose and a bottle of perfume. In Nice it will be a carnation. Each ten thousandth woman will get a sweater, and each hundred thousandth a dress from a famous designer. If other manufacturers join the campaign, there will be gifts for men, too, Dumas said. Once out of the customs sheds and airports, however, tourists will still be at the mercy of the private citizens -- waiters, hotel clerks, cab drivers, etc. Dumas conceded the government could try litlle more Ihan urge them lo be courteous. ·Smile Checks' On entering the country visitors will receive a book of s.ix 'Smile Checks," which they will be asked to distribute to deserving hotel or restaurant people -- in addition to the tip. At the end of the year those with the largest number of checks will get free trips to Tahiti, the West Indies or the United States. Dumas has persuaded the education ministry to include lectures on kindness to tourists in all school programs. Similarly, the state-owned radio and tele-, vision network will stress the i virtues of courtesy in juvenile programs. Educational efforts are also )lanned for bank and post-office employes that deal with foreign visitors. Policemen have been instructed o show kindness and not to issue ickets to visitors except for the wost serious offenses and never or parking violations. If a parked car hinders traffic it will be owed to a better place free of ·harge.

Due to the brutality connectet with the crime and an indicated sex element, the trill is due to capture a keen interest on part of some of the public. Seized In 1X4 When Coolidge was seized in February of 1964 shortly after the baby-sitter's body was found iumped in a snow bank on Route 3, Boston newspapermen joined Jew Hampshire scribes in cover- ng the case. Reporters from the Hub breath- d down the neck of Manchester xlice assigned to the case. Jack Hynes, the TV newscaster, ame up from Channel 5 in per- on to get the details first-hand or his viewers. These fellows are all due back 'Sob Sisters' Here The case promises lo have more overage than the sensational case of many years back when a physician was tried in the alleged mercy death" of one of his : tients. At that time, the nation's top 'sob sisters," including Dorothy Kilgallen and Adela Rogers St. John, converged on the Manchester courthouse to get the "human interest" side of the case for their tabloid readers. There have been number ol violent crimes in the Manchester area in the past several years but none with the elements of the Pamela Mason and Sandra Valade murders. A sporting goods store owner was charged with stabbing his former wife and architect friend to death in her home and then trying to shoot it out with police from inside his store. Another man bludgeoned his Japanese-born wife and their four children to death with a hammer in their Manchester tenement home. And an assistant manager of » supermarket in the Queen City, who lived in a neat ranch house with a foreign-make sports car in .he garage, shot his three small children to death and then killed limself with a shotgun blast. The TV was going so loudly that he neighbors in houses a few r ards away never heard the shots. Ruled losaM The sporting goods store owner and the man who lulled his Japanese wi/e never came to trial am were remanded as insane to the New Hampshire Hospital at Concord. There was near panic In the In January of 1M4 after the Mason girl was found slain. Queen City women were fearful :o venture onto the streets near their neighborhood after dark. Some people were seeing 'fiends" behind every tree. The arrest of Coolidge shortly ifter the Mason crime followed his ippearance the day before in the Manchester court in a case involving an alleged theft from his employer while he was working as a bakery route salesman. He had been in jail only a few, weeks charged with the murder of the baby-sitter when Atty. Gen. Villiam Maynard exploded a bombshell. Manacled and brought from his cell at the old county jail in Manchester, Coolidge was indicted at ifanehester courthouse for the 19- K) killing of Sandra Valade whose wdy had also been found in a mow bank. She had met death under circumstances similar to those that ended th'e life of the Mason girl. As he did in the Mason crime, Joolidge pleaded not guilty to the Vaiade girl's death. There have been no detailed lints thus far of what major cvi. dence the state may have in its case against Coolidge. No public announcement has ever been made as to the police view of where the Mason girl hat been murdered before her body was found on the side of the busily-traveled Route W. Death of Lawyer One official expressed the view that she had been slain elsewhere and her body tossed by the roadside. This was before Coolldge's arrest. The official said then there was indication that when her bcily was found the blood had been drained from her body and could not be accounted for at the scene of its discovery. A footnote to the Mason-Valade use came last summer when the chief of CooIidie'J detente counsel, Atty. J. Murray Devine of Aanchester, one of the state's best known lawyers and then chairman of the Democratic Slate Committee, died fit a heart attack *t 43. When Coolidge was indicted in he Valade case along with the Mason crime, it posed a legal question that came in for some detailed discussion among law- 'ers in the area. For what crime would the 26- year-old father be tried first, the Mason ease or the Valadc case? With Coolidge being tried on the Mason charge, and he is claiming he is innocent of both crimes, what would the state's course be if he is acquitted in the Mason :ase? A high state law official had indicated that Coolidgc would then be tried for the death of Sandra Valade. University Officials to Fight Cut Of $500,000 from Budgef Request CONCOKD, N. H. (AP)-The House Appropriations Committee disclosed today it has cut $500,000 from the budget request agreed on by leaders of both parties for the University of New Hampthire. University officials promised a vigorous fight for restoration of the funds. The committee, in its budget revisions, knocked the UNH allotment down to $13.7 million-$1 million more than the amount originally requested by Gov. John W. King but $900,000 less than the imount later agreed on by the Democratic governor arid the Republican legislative leaders. University President John W. McConnell, reached in Durham, voiced surprise at the development. Leader! Agreed He noted that leaders of both parties had agreed that a $4.1 million increase in the university's present budget would be required to handle soaring enrollments and mounting costs both at the main campus and at Keene and Plymouth State Colleges. The university, he said, "will be forced. to wage a vigorous fight for restoration of at least the $500,000 reduction/' McConnell recalled that the university system had originally asked for a $15.6 million appropriation for the next two years but later reduced its request to $14.9 million. The figure agreed on by King and the Republican leaders was within $700,000 of that amount. Rep. Joseph Eaton, R - Hillsboro, chairman of the Appropriations Committee said the group did not believe the slash would curtail enrollment expansion plans at the university during the next bicnnium. He said other essential budget items were also reduced because trf limited funds. Money Need* McConnell said the committee recommendation would leave UNH well short of the money it needs. S o a r i n g enrollments have placed UNH in a substantially weakened financial condition, he Mid. King reiterated his support of the $4.1 million increase in the university budget Monday In announcing support of an enlarged spending program.
