Nearly all the mines remained empty and peaceful with only a scattered few miners showing up for the first two shifts on the first day in which the Taft-Hartley court order, obtained by President Carter, became enforceable There were only isolated reports of picketing. That was the general picture at strip mines in Tennessee and deep mines in West Virginia.*and in the coal country of Kentucky, Illinois, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. United Mine Workers members have been on strike in those areas since Dec. 6. cutting off half the nation's soft coal production There were reports of a few miners picketing in Pennsylvania. Tennessee and West Virginia, and of a few mines at which some miners showed up “We've had a few isolated in stances of an employee or two showing up." said a spokesman for Bethlehem Mines Corp. which runs ll mines in Pennsylvania. But there were so few that they were sent home. Near Welch. W Va.. however, some 30 men of the 150-man 8 a m shift did report at Eastern As sociated Coal Co.’s No I mine enough to do some maintenance chore1-, although not enough to produce coal One man had showed up for the midnight shift, and he had been sent home. An official of United Mine Work prs Local 6196. who asked his name not be used, said the men on the midnight shift at Welch had stayed away because of the possibility of picketing or violence in the dark There were no pickets there at 8 am. and the local official predicted more men would report for future shifts if pickets did not show up He said his men want very much to work and "somebody’s got to make a start." “No one showed up. The only miners here are watching us on the fringe of the property out on the highway." said Bob McGregor. who supervised a dozen non union foremen on their midnight shift maintenance rounds at the portal of the Mathies Mine Co in Thomas. Pa McGregor said the underground mine there covers 70 square miles and normally employs 570 United Mine Workers employees. IMW locals which had been served with the Taft-Hartley in-l unction were told to report back to work at 12 OI a m. today, but union leadership had predicted the order would be ignored. “We blew the work whistle, but there are no miners," John Hall of See Page 5, Column 3 Israelis await retaliation Carbon monoxide blamed Two teen-agers found dead in auto Sunday By SUE HAGEN Bulletin Staff Writer What began as a Saturday evening date ended in tragedy for two Anderson youths who were found dead in a car south of Chesterfield Sunday morning, apparently victims of carbon monoxide poisoning. Dead are James “Brad” Bickel, 17, 2203 Angie Lane, and Donna Ledbetter, 15, Bt. 7, Anderson The two were found in Bickers 1969 Chevy by the boy’s grandfather, Drex Bickel, after both families were worried when they did not return to their homes. The car was parked on a service road of a turf nursery near Donnelly Road east of Water Street. A neighbor in the area reported the elder Bickel came to her door about IO a m. Sunday and said he found the two dead in the car parked nearby. She called the Madison County Police and returned to the scene with the grandfather. The car was parked five or six car lengths off the main road, the neighbor reported. Police said the ignition was on, but the engine had quit running due to the fuel being exhausted. A tape player was still running Both victims were in the front seat. Officials said they died By ARTHUR MAX Associated Press Writer JERUSALEM (AP) — Palestinian strongholds in southern Lebanon are considered likely targets of Israeli attacks in retaliation for the weekend Arab terrorist raid in which the Israeli government said 36 of its citizens were killed, 72 were wounded and all ll raiders were killed or captured. • “Those who kill Jews in our time cannot enjoy impunity,” said Prime Minister Menachem Begin, who vowed Israel “will eliminate this threat” of terrorism. Begin met with his Cabinet today to launch an inquiry into how the guerrillas, in two rubber boats, were able to pierce Israel’s coastal defenses and terrorize the main Tel Aviv-Haifa highway, and why it took security forces almost an hour to stop a bus hijacked by the raiders. “The relative quiet that has prevailed in the recent past created an illusion of tranquility,” Parliament member Haim Corfu said in the eulogy at one of the funeral services. “This despicable murder has brought us back to the ground of reality.” Beirut newspapers claimed Israel was massing troops and armor along much of its 60-mile frontier with Lebanon. They predicted a three-pronged assault including a tank thrust against guerrilla bases in south Lebanon, a naval bombardment of the port of Tyre, which is now a guerrilla head quarters, and air strikes against Palestinian refugee camps in the Beirut area. Although the raiders came from Lebanon, that nation’s defense and foreign minister, Fuad Butros, denied the Lebanese were in any way involved. He called in the ambassadors of the United States, the Soviet Union. Britain, France and China to ask their help in averting an Israeli attack against Lebanese territory. Begin, postponing his trip to Washington for at least a week, also made clear that the Palestinian assault Saturday on two buses sharpened his opposition to a Palestinian state on the occupied West Bank of the Jordan River and to complete Israeli withdrawal from the territory, the central issues blocking a peace agreement between Egypt and Israel. “It is unthinkable that in Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip a state will arise that will be ruled by Yasser Arafat and his murderers,” Begin told a news conference. Judea and Samaria are the biblical names for the West Bank, which Israel occupied in the 1967 Arab-Israeli War. LEDBETTER sometime between ll p.m. Saturday and 2 a m. Sunday. An investigation of the car revealed the exhaust system was intact; however, the inside of the trunk had rusted through near the fenders. One hole was directly over the tailpipe on the right side, police report Authorities believe carbon monoxide seeped into the trunk through the rusted holes and BICKEL leaked into the passenger compartment. Parents of both youths had filed missing persons reports about 8 a rn. Sunday Donna had last been seen about 6:30 p.m. Saturday before going to a movie with her boyfriend. The girl told her mother she would be home early. Funeral arrangements for both are reported on Page 3. Historical chuckholes Michael A. ttrou n Part of the history of Anderson can be seen in these chuckholes (which some motorists say are the worst in town), located on 13th Street, just west of Fletcher Street. Although the street was paved some time ago, the pavement has deteriorated so much because of the harsh winter that the previous surface — red bricks — can be seen. A history buff can also look at these chuckholes and see that streetcar rails used to run down the middle of the road. Area business owners refer to these holes, which are so wide they cannot be avoided by a car, as the ‘‘All-American City Potholes.” ;
