Dense fog and two inches of snow and ice on the road contributed to the accident, according to police. Twenty five inch snowbanks on both sides of the one-lane clearance also were factors.

They were all See Page 6, Column I By OWEN ULLMANN Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) As con tract talks resume in the 95-day coal strike, federal marshals are fanning out into the coalfields with a court order telling miners to go back to work There were few indications, however. that many of the 160.000 striking miners planned to halt their protracted walkout, although President Carter declared Thursday that he believes “a substantial portion of them will comply w ith the law.” Meanwhile, union and coal industry negotiators planned to meet today at the United Mine Workers headquarters to search for a settlement of their bitter dispute, which has forced electric utilities to curtail power and industries to lay off thousands of workers. Sources said UMW President Arnold Miller and his bargaining team were to meet with three officials from the Bituminous Coal Operators Association without the presence of federal mediators. The two sides have not bargained on a new national contract since the industry agreed to union contract demands two weeks ago under the threat of presidential intervention. The contract was rejected by the rank-and-file by a 2-1 margin last weekend Immediately after U.S. District Judge Aubrey E Robinson Jr issued his temporary back-to-work order Thursday under the Taft* Hartley Act, U S. marshals began distributing copies of the order and supporting documents to 1,451 defendants that included the UMW. its local unions, mine construction workers and mine operators A Justice Department spokesman said copies of the order were served to a handful of defendants in Washington on Thursday, but union locals in the coalfields were not expected to receive visits from marshals until today. The judge issued the order after agreeing with the Carter administration represented by Attorney General Griffin Bell in a rare court appearance that the strike's continuation would “imperil the na tional health or safety.” The judge’s order directed coal operators to reopen their mines and the strikers to end their walk out as of 7 a m. local time today. However, the judge gave marshals until 4:30 p m EST next Monday to serve copies of the order to all defendants, and Justice Department officials acknowledged that it would be difficult to force compliance with the order until Monday. One government attorney, who asked not to be identified, said that a defendant is not technically required to obey the order if he has not been served with it The order does not spell out any penalties for non-compliance, but any defendant who violates the order is subject to the contempt powers of the court, which may include fines and jail terms, the attorney said. “We won’t be dashing into court seeking to cite anyone for contempt.” said Mark Sheehan, a Justice Department spokesman. “We neither seek nor w ant a confrontation.... We are proceeding under the belief that the bulk of the miners will go back to work” within the next several days, he said. The judge, who also directed bargainers to resume '‘collective bargaining in good faith.” said that while he was ordering the strike to a temporary end, no individual miner could be forced back to work against his will. Nine constable candidates included on primary ballot By KEN de la BASTIDE Bulletin Staff Writer The Madison County Election Board this morning voted unanimously to place the candidates for constable in various townships in Madison County on the May primary ballot. Fred Spencer, attorney for the nine Democrats, told the election board his clients had no complaint with the board. “My clients have not received notification from the Election Board that their names will not appear on the May ballot,” Spencer said. Spencer then cited Indiana law concerning declarations of candidacy for the office of constable. Spencer said Indiana statute 3-1-9 5, which was amended in 1975, still provides for an office of constable. He added his clients have been informally notified that their names would not appear on the primary ballot. He further stated that in the case of Dodd and others versus the state of Indiana in 1862, in which the Indiana Supreme Court declared the opinion of the attorney general is only for the information of those involved and can be followed or not at the discretion of the county clerks. "The attorney general’s opinion is not binding on the county election board; Sendak’s opinion is not the law. The courts will have to interpret the law," Spencer said. Spencer noted the names should be placed on the May ballot. “If you place them on the primary ballot and the Indiana Supreme Court decides no office of constable exists, then it is a simple matter of removing them from the November ballot; no one will be hurt by this. If you do not place them on the primary ballot and the attorney general is wrong, these men could be hurt by the action," Spencer said. Rep. Craig Campbell, D-Anderson, was called to testify for the plaintiffs. “There was by implication or any other ways no intention of the General Assembly to abolish the office of constable when public law 305 was passed revising the court system in the state,” Campbell said. He said it is his opinion it will take a constitutional amendment to abolish the office because it is a constitutional office. The Election Board decision stated, “After consideration of the law, evidence in this cause, and arguments of counsel, it was the unanimous vote of this Board that the candidates for the office of Township Constable should be placed on the ballot for the Primary Election to be held on May 2, 1978." The Election Board consists of Henry P. Schrenker, chairman of the board, Thomas Newman Sr., and Paul O’Neil. Sue Davis with the attorney general’s office said this morning Thomas Sendak, Indiana attorney general, will not initiate any legal action to prevent the names from appearing on the ballot, unless the State Election Board requests it. Bill Haan, chief deputy of the State Election Board, told the Bulletin this morning he will have to ask the board if it desires to take any legal action in the matter. He would not say if the State Election Board will attempt to pursue its instructions from the attorney general’s office on the matter. Council gives OK on Allen Chapel purchase By TOM WATSON Bulletin Staff Writer It appears now that the boarded-up Allen Chapel low-income housing project at 2215 Fulton St. will eventually be reopened and operated by the Anderson Housing Authority. Thursday night the Anderson City Council voted for the second time on whether the city should proceed with the process of buying the 60-unit Allen Chapel project from the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development. The vote was 7-2 in favor of the council entering into a “cooperation agreement” with the Housing Authority, the first step in the ultimate purchase from HUD The first time the council considered the matter, on Feb I, the vote was 5-3 against the proposed purchase. But Mayor Robert L. Rock and a number of Westside community leaders did not give up after the first defeat An informational campaign was launched in an attempt to show the council the city would have no real financial risk by becoming involved in the operation of a public housing project. That campaign finally paid off Thursday night. Westsiders and others who had been increasingly vocal in recent weeks about the city’s need for low income housing were ecstatic after the council vote. “I’m just awful happy,” said Carrie Hyatt of the Community Action Council after the meeting. Hyatt has been trying to assist tenants of Allen Chapel (many of whom were relocated at the Pinetree Village low-income housing project on Raible Avenue) for more than a year, and she has put pressure on the mayor and others to get the housing problem alleviated. “All we’ve got to do now is try and make it work (the reopening of Allen Chapel),” Hyatt added. “It will work.” Council President John German, who has been in favor of the proposed project almost from the beginning, said he was also pleased with the council vote. Voting for the project Thursday night were: Bob Morris, 3rd District councilman; Von Cochran, 6th District; Wayne Huffman, at-large; Carroll Grile, at-large; Ronnie Fletcher, 5th District; Jack Alexander, at-large; and German, 4th District. Opposing the proposed purchase were 1st District Councilman Jack VanDyke and Andrew Orbik, 2nd District. Grile, Fletcher and Alexander had voted against the project the last time. Cochran was not present for the first vote. Fletcher and Grile had said they would vote for the purchase this time if they were convinced operation of the project would never be a financial burden on the city in the future. Both men questioned HUD officials at the meeting and were evidently satisfied with the answers Alexander’s change of heart was somewhat of a surprise, however. When asked why he decided to vote for the purchase this time, he replied “Let’s just say that I got a little more See Page 6, Column I ;
