United Mine Workers President Arnold Miller said the miners will vote next Monday by secret ballot on the three- year pact and the results will be known within 24 hours, far less time than the 10 days to two weeks previously thought necessary. '.'We're going to do everything we can to expedite" the complicated ratification procedure, Miller said.

"I thought they were sincere, But after today's vote, I have to he said. The bargaining council, he said, should "accept its responsibility and allow the membership of this union to vote on their contract. I believe that the membership of this union should have the right to express its will." Ratification Lengthy Miller Introduced the lengthy ratification procedure as one of his reforms after he was elected president. Coal negotiations began Sept. 3 and a tentative agreement was settled upon Nov. 13, the day after the old contract ex- pired. But the council sent Miller back to the negotiations for adjustments. '.Three days ago, another tentative agreement with the Bituminous Coal Operators Association was worked out under auspieces of Usery and Treasury Secretary William E. Simon. The contract provides for substantial pay increases, large .'pension Increases, an extra holiday, more vacation time and paid lick leave, several safety features, more jobs for union miners, and extended health coverage, particularly for widows. the Misery' Budget Billion ___________________1 S -registered a surprising surplus in its. balance of payments in onm The] trade surplus of Says three Sisters, Brother Miiriter'ejl: Boy Keeps TerrifyiiiJ CHICAGO (UPI) For nearly five weeks, 13-year-old Charles Horace kept a terrify- ing secret.
