No serious flooding was reported today, but officials were keeping close watch on low lying areas of the Ravenswood area of Indianapolis, where the West Fork of White River was rising toward flood stage.

Some lowlands and secondary roads will be flooded when the middle Wabash crests one to three feet above flood stage. Lafayette was expected to crest one half foot above flood stage Friday morning and Montezuma three feet above flood stage Friday afternoon. The National Weather Service said the crest will be about a foot above flood level at Terre Haute on Saturday and at Riverton on Monday. W Ne 4 Slevo ttngrnneker Outlook optimistic for new coal pact WASHINGTON (AP) - With the coal strike now IOO days old. leaders of the United Mine Workers are hoping their unpredictable bargaining council and rebellious members will approve a new ten tative contract containing industry concessions in two key areas. The 39 member council, w'hich torpedoed a proposed agreement a month ago. was arriving in Washington today to vote on the settlement reached Tuesday by negotiators for the UMW and soft coal industry. The new settlement includes concessions by both sides, but the industry appeared to have given up more particulary in agreements on health care and wildcat strikes, two areas of chief concern to the rank and-file. If it passes the bargaining coun cil. the agreement can be put to a vote by the 160.000 miners next week and bring to an end a bitter strike that the Carter administration has been unable to curb The miners overwhelmingly rejected a previous pact on March 5 and have been ignoring a federal judge’s back-to work order issued under the Taft Hartley Act. UMW’ President Arnold Miller. who summoned the bargaining council to vote on the agreement this evening, said. "I think we’ve got a good agreement." but he refused to predict how miners would vote. Initial reaction from the coalfields varied "If this is an improvement over the last one. I would have to vote for it." said Floyd Lamb, a bargaining council member from Ohio. "I would take it for granted that the bargaining council certain Iv would vote for it since we voted for a lesser contract." The council rejected the first negotiated settlement on Feb 12. but approved the one that w as later rejected by the rank and file. "I think it stands a 90 percent chance around here from what I heard.” said Russell Riffle Jr.. an official of l,ocal 1836 in Mc* Clellandtown. Pa. But the attorney for District 28 in southwest Virginia said initial reaction there was very negative. "We hope the bargaining council won t waste time sending it down to the membership." said Jerry Talton, While House press secretary Jody Powell said President Carter was "pleased and encouraged" when he learned of the agreement. "The welfare of our country re quires a dependable supply of coal." Carter said. "And a negotiated national contract is the best way to ensure that supply." Powell said 151 mines that were shut down last week are now back in production, including ll union mines. While the other union mines remained idle Tuesday, the Justice Department continued its policy of non confrontation in enforcing the temporary back-to work order that took full effect on Monday. Israel attacks Lebanon TRADE IN SNOWSHOES FOR SWIM FINS . . melting snow, ruin create flood problems BKI RUT. Lebanon (AP) Thousands of Israeli troops overran Palestinian guerrilla bases across southern Lebanon today and Israeli warplanes fired rockets at Palestinian refugee camps in and around this capital, witnesses retorted. Ten residents of one rump were killed, according to early reports. The aim of the assault was to clear a guerrilla-free strip along Israel’s northern border and deter repetitions of the terrorist raid last weekend in which 34 Israelis died It was believed to be the biggest Israeli attack ever, and the Palestinians said 25.000 Israeli soldiers were involved. Witness reports from southern Lebanon. 60 miles from Beirut, indicated Israeli tanks and troops appeared to be deploying in a pincer movement one prong moving north along the Mediterranean coast and the other west to the sea to surround the guerrillas in the southeasternmost border area. Witnesses said Israeli jets swooped down in pairs from cloud-filled skies and rocketed the Sabra camp, on Beirut's south edge, home for some 20.000 refugees and base of Yasser Arafat's military command. "I saw eight sweeps by the [lianes, each time firing four rockets It is difficult to see what was hit." said Associated Press photographer Farouk Nassar, who watched from his eighth-story apartment window. Others said the attack was centered between Sabra and Bourg Barajneh. another refugee camp Right-wing Christian radio reported that Beirut International Airport, one mile south of the Sabra camp, was shut down.‘Game’ brings energy problems to life By BARB ALBERT Bulletin Staff Writer Buzzers sound and lights flash. It’s the year 2020 and the natural gas supply is gone. Conservation efforts are stepped up, but is it too late? This situation and similar energy-related problems confront operators of the “energy game”—an energy-environment simulator or computer which sets up real-world conditions. Dr. Dale Bales, physics professor at Anderson College, is participating in a U.S. Department of Energy educational program designed to give citizens an opportunity to learn more about energy and environmental needs and problems. He presents workshops to interested groups utilizing the energy game and a slide show. The simulator, which can be operated by group members, is programmed with energy resources, energy demands and environmental effects. Participants must make decisions by controlling energy supplies and demands, while time slips away at a rate of IOO years per minute. The object of the game is to maintain a supply of fossil fuels for as long as possible and to keep the environment as clean as possible. Participants allocate resources by turning dials on remote panels in response to the changing situation. The simulator constantly translates these commands into new conditions. The energy supply in the simulator allows operators to draw from coal, petroleum, gas, hydroelectric, nuclear and geothermal reserves. As time passes, indicator lights show the amount of reserves remaining. The energy pools, either chemical or electrical, show how the resources are to be converted. Tile energy demands, divided into industrial, transportation and household-commercial areas, can be adjusted, as well as the population growth and per capita energy growth. Participants can also see the environmental impact of their decisions on air pollution, radioactive wastes and other effects. The game continues until all the fossil fuels are exhausted. On first run-throughs, the world usually “ends” in less than 200 years. But as participants become more adept in managing resources, the world’s lifetime may increase to 1,000 years or more. Bales said the purpose of the simulator is based on the idea many Americans think there isn’t an energy problem. “It is intended to arouse public » awareness of the seriousness of the energy problem.” He explained that every person in the United States now uses enough energy to keep about 80 people alive on subsistence level. Back in 1920, the average person used only enough energy for 20 people. “We can’t continue to increase wages and output without cutting back our consumption. Our personal energy usage will have to go down or at least level off soon," Bales said. Bales has presented the workshop to about 20 groups, including civic clubs, college classes, churches and high school groups. Any group wanting to have the workshop should contact Bales at Anderson College. The energy game was developed by staff scientists of the Northwest College and University Association for Science and sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy. About IOO simulators are being used throughout the country, and more than 7,000 presentations have been made. Indiana is using three simulators, and Bales covers central Indiana.
