PSI reports progress to resume construction on Marble Hill project Public Service Indiana says partial resumption of safetyrelated construction at its Marble Hill nuclear power project in Jefferson County could begin as early as the end of March. In a news briefing at the plant site Thursday PSI officials told reporters the utility expects to ask the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for www permission to re-start safetycritical work within the next weeks. S.W. Shields, PSI vice president, outlined progress already made in responding to items in an NRC order confirming the Aug.

7 shutdown of all safetyrelated work on the nuclear project. The utility ordered this work halted in the wake of construction problems. While PSI does not expect to complete a full analysis of the and scheduling impact of the work delay before the second quarter of this year, Shields said that a significant cost increase and lengthening of the schedule is expected. "Regardless of any increases from previous cost estimates," said Shields, "power from the two Marble Hill units will save money for energy users. Despite problems and the delay, power from Marble Hill will be less than from any other alternative source available to us." Highlights of progress made toward getting authorization to resume safety critical works, aid Shields, include: Re-inspection of concrete in place and confirmation that it is sound and exceeds specifications.

commitment to reinspect 100 percent of surfaces already poured and to remove and re-repair all concrete patches. Complete reorganization of the construction management organization and the centralizing on site of all Public Service Indiana nuclear engineering personnel. per Increasing the full site time management force some 190 permanent employees, including the transfer of about 40 employees from the utility's general offices in Plainfield. Expanding the training program for all project employees and development of a system of reporting suspected deficiencies by any construction worker without threat of recrimination.

QJ87 9 KJ52 0 J65 2. 4 J1085 9 AQ4 0 AQ8 K63 3. 4 00873 0 97 4 AKJ64 4. AK86 9 AQ32 AJ754 4 1. One heart.

It would be wrong to respond one notrump to show a balanced hand with 6 to 9 points. Your. first obligation is to seek a major suit fit, and you should practically always respond to one of a minor suit with a fourcard major suit if you have one. It is better to bid one heart than orle spade. This will quickly reveal a 4-4 heart fit if it exists and, at the same time, give partner room to bid one spade if he has four cards in that suit.

If you were to respond one spade, you might never find the possible 4-4 heart fit. 2, Three notrump. There is a great advantage telling partner, in one bid, both the high content distribution of your hand your as well. It is therefore better to ignore your scrawny spades and go directly to three notrump. This says you have 16 to 017 points, distribution that is probably 4-3-3-3 but might be 4-4-3-2, and strength or stoppers in the three unbid suits.

A two notrump response has the same requirements except 1980 King Features Tomorrow: Performing that the -count range is 13 to: 15: 3: One heart. A two club response would indicate at least four trumps and 6 to 9 points; a three club response would indicate four or five trumps and 13 to 15 points. It follows that a raise to either two or three clubs would substantially misrepresent your values, and you should therefore look for another bid that comes closer to stating your actual values. The best response one heart, which has the advantage of being an ambiguous response. It indicates from 6 to 16 points and four or more hearts.

You have no idea what partner will do next, but you will probably be able to show the club support later without committing your side to game. Your hearts are weak, of course, but it's better to misrepresent your heart strength than to bid two or three clubs. 4. One diamond. Despite the 18 high-card points, you should respond only one diamond, not two.

You plan to bid two spades over the expected two club rebid by partner, and then bid three hearts over partner's possible rebid of three clubs. You will thus have represented your 4-4-5-0 distribution and a very good "hand. Of course, the bidding may go altogether differently, in which case you'd bid a slam after partner revealed a good trump fit for any one of your suits. Syndicate, Inc. the impossible.

(UPI) A half dozen witnesses have testified a 1973 Ford Pinto exploded into flames almost immediately, after it was the rear by by a van near Goshen in 1978.

Three teen-age girls died in the accident in August 1978, prompting the filing of criminal charges against the Ford Motor Co. Ford is charged with reckless homicide in the trial before Pulaski Circuit Judge Harold Staffeldt. The auto maker is the first corporation brought to trial in Indiana under the law allowing such criminal prosecution against a non-person. The prosecution contends that Ford was neglegent in the Pinto which made it susceptible to rear-end collisions. The six witnesses who testified Thursday before the trial was recessed until Monday indicated the Pinto in which the victims were riding was moving slowly, most estimated the speed about 15 mph, while the van was traveling near the speed limit of 50 mph along the five-lane section of U.S.

33 near Goshen. Other witnesses also described the intense explosion almost immediately after the van inpacted the rear of the Pinto. Two also said they remembered seeing another less violent explosion. William J. Martin, Lewiston, N.Y., said he rushed to the scene shortly after the accident.

He said it appeared the car exploded for a second time. "I could look directly into the front windshield area of the Pinto. I could see a solid mass of orange flame. There was absolutely no air space. The flames were up over the roof," he said.

Martin at the time was an professor at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend. He also said he saw a man acting erratically and who one time fell to his knees and started pounding the ground with his fists. The man later was identified as Robert Dugger, the driver of the van. Albert J. Clark Osteen, said the explosion after the crash resembled a a "large napalm bomb." "The van hit the Pinto in the left rear," he said.

"I expected it to be a fender bender." "About a second later the whole car was engulfed in flames," he added. "It was I'm an ex-GI like a large napalm bomb." Clark's wife, Pauline, said she accompanied her husband across the highway to help and he instructed her to help a young man who appeared disoriented. "I saw a young man running around. My husband yelled at me to take care of him 'get him out of she explained. Mrs.

Clark said she led the man from the car and made him sit down. She added she smelled no alcohol on his breath and no odor of marijuana. She said Dugger. sobbed occasionally, but said he was unhurt and told Mrs. Clark to "help them, help them (the other victims)." A trooper testified Wednesday he found half-empty beer bottles in Dugger's van and a quantity of marijuana but that a blood test showed Dugger was not drunk.

Vicki Shriner, Bristol, said he was traveling behind the van and noticed it fishtail, saw sparks and then flames shooting above the van. She testified she saw no other vehicle until she got out of her car and looked around. Yolanda Ihrig, a high school student from Elkhart, said he was driving from Goshen to Elkhart and eventually passed FB Co-op vindicated in futures market case An administrative, law judge has vindicated the position of Indiana Farm Bureau Cooperative Association Inc. in a complaint filed in 1974 by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The complaint, filed under the Commodity Exchange Act, charged the Indiana Farm Bureau Co-op and Louis M. Johnston with attempting to manipulate and manipulating the commodity futures market in July 1973. Glenn Franklin, Co-op executive vice president said Judge Arthur L. Shipe, in his 92-page opinion, found the claims of the Division of Enforcement of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission clearly makeweight and without merit and that nothing in the actions of the Co-op or Johnston indicated they were attempting to manipulate the futures market. The opinion continued to say that neither the Co-op or Johnston were culpable of the legal cause of the prices reached in the 1973 July corn futures con- both the van and the Pinto.

She said traveled along side the van for a short distance at a speed of about .45 to 50 mph and also trailed the Pinto at a speed of about 30 mph. Miss Ihrig said that after she apssed the Pinto, it appeared to be still slowing down when she saw the collision with the van. She told the court there was one large explosion "like a bomb blowing She, her brother and sister returned to the crash and saw the Pinto "all in flames."
