A long dry spell in the final period doomed a determined Pirate effort to bump off the favored Indians in the morning's second game The Pirates closed a 50-42 gap to 50 44 by hitting their first shot of the period, but after that the Bucs were linable to find the bucket again until the 3:36 mark of the fourth quarter By that time, the Indians had run off eight straight points and held a secure 58-44 advantage. The Pirates made a game of it for the better part of three quarters.

Coffee and donuts were selling at a brisk pace this morning as hard core basketball fans filed into the Wigwam for the beginning of Anderson's unique 1978 sectional in the state boys’ basketball tourney. Because of energy curtailments resulting from the coal strike, local school officials decided to have the first four games of the sectional on one Saturday, with the contests scheduled for 9 a rn., 10:30 a rn., 2:30 p.m. and 4 p m That Saturday is today, and various persons interviewed by the Bulletin this morning before and during the first game Lapel vs. Daleville had widely varying opinions on what effects the early start would have. "I think they could play this at 3 a m., and everyone would still be ready to go,” said Dave Allen, a member of Anderson radio station WLDN FM’s basketball broadcasting team. "They’d have a full gym, too," chimed in Jim Aldrich, one of Allen’s broadcasting partners But Frankton High School coach Calvin Bayley, whose team was not scheduled to play until 2:30 p m today, disagreed “This game (Lapel vs. Daleville), both teams have been slowed down by the early morning start,” Bayley said at halftime of the first game. "We don't like to practice this early, let alone play.” Bayley had his Frankton Eagles team at the Wigwam bright and early this morning to watch the first game, but he said he planned to send them home after the game ended, so they could rest up for their contest. “I don't think there’s quite the atmosphere this early in the morning,” said Woody Fields, scorekeeper for Lapel High School and a member of the school’s coaching staff. “I think that will throw them (the players) off a little bit." Brenda Weiss, Daleville High School senior and a varsity cheerleader, said the morning game was a little strange for her and the rest of the students "Vou’re not awake." she said at halftime. "Everyone's just kinda dead." But she added that at a pep session at the high school on Friday, "Everybody was really fired up." Ron Rheam, Anderson Police Department officer working security at the Wigwam this morning, said this is his "sixth or seventh” sectional. He noted that when he became a police officer 12 years ago, his first night of work was at a sectional at .Anderson High School Rheam said he didn't think the early start would make that big of a difference. "As long as you stay inside, you really don’t know what time it is." Twelve hours remain on clock Legislators work on budget, tax plan By KRISTIE HILL Associated Press Writer INDIANAPOLIS (AP) With just 12 hours left on the clock, the 1978 legislature prepared to vote today on a compromise state spending and tax relief plan that includes $78 million for snow-ravaged streets and highways and tax breaks for motorists, diabetics and the elderly. The compromise budget and tax plan, the only remaining stumbling block to final adjournment, was approved Friday night by House-Senate negotiators and will be put to a final floor vote when the legislature reconvenes at noon today. It includes $90.5 million to finance state government oper ations and construction of new state facilities and is coupled with a school funding formula that could increase local property taxes by 1-5 percent and pay hikes for legislators and the state’s top nine elected officials. Two other key measures collective bargaining rights for police and firemen and state aid to bail out bankrupt poor relief programs apparently are dead. The budgetmakers began pounding out the compromise Friday morning. House Speaker Kermit O. Burrous had threatened to adjourn the session by Friday midnight but backed down in exchange for Democrat approval of the property tax increase to fund a I percent budget increase for local schools. The final budget and tax agreement amount to $190-$200 million, leaving approximately a $50 million state surplus and another $30 million to absorb the impact of the coal strike on state revenues. The proposed operating budget carries a $50.4 million price-tag and another $42.1 million is earmarked for construction and improvement of state facilities. The highway budget includes $44 million for local streets and roads and $34 million for state highways. The remaining money up to $22 million - will be used to provide tax breaks. The agreement calls for removing the state sales tax now charged on state and federal gasoline excise taxes and requiring service station operators to post the lull price of gasoline including the sales tax Sen. Merton I). Stanley. D-Kokomo, a conferee on the po lice-firemen collective bargaining bill, said the measure apparently is dead after Republicans insisted on a provision that would have penalized strikers by taking away their pension benefits and limited bargaining rights to patrolmen.Index PAGES Births................. 3 Church ................ 6 Comics ................14 Deaths................. 3 Editorials.............. 4 Entertainment..........IS Sports...............9-11 ii bat's ll here ..........13Weather Clear and cold tonight.

Initial UMW vote results favor rejection; Indiana votes today WASHINGTON (AP) - Despite an early 2-1 margin for rejection, union officials expect a close vote this weekend as striking coal miners decide whether to ratify a contract and end their three-month walkout. Most of the United Mine Workers’ 794 locals are holding elections today and Sunday as the Carter administration weighs alternatives to force the walkout to an end if the contract is rejected. Union, industry and government officials have said the vote would be too close to hazard predictions of the outcome, which may not be known until Monday. However, the first officially reported results Friday from 51 locals — 41 of them from District 28 in Virginia — showed 3,055 votes against the contract and I,560 in favor. About 166,000 miners, concentrated in the eastern third of the country, were eligible to vote. A UMW spokesman said Friday that a contract rejection vote had been expected from the II,000-member Virginia district because local leaders there had been urging the rank-and-file to vote "no." Indiana miners began voting today on a contract that many hope will end the 89-day coal strike that has spawned almost 10,000 layoffs in Indiana’s non-coal industries. The layoffs, prompted by mandatory electrical cutbacks to save dwindling coal supplies, range from one-day furloughs and shortened work weeks to indefinite job losses. With an eye on the economic pinch in its southern Indiana service area. Hoosier Energy asked the Public Service Commission to lift the cutbacks it imposed almost two weeks ago. PSC Chairman Larry J. Wallace delayed a decision until Monday, after the state's 3,700 active miners have cast their votes on See Page3, Column 3 A man picks his way through the snow and empty park benches after a late winter storm blanketed Washington, D C. with several inches Friday.
