The State Board of Health declared a measles emergency at the 1 9,000-student campus Wednesday after one case of "old-fashioned" measles was confirmed. Dr. Michael Seidle, director of the university health center, said doctors suspected two other students might have measles, but their tests produced the negative results late Wednesday. Seidle said the university is going ahead with plans for a mass inoculation program on campus beginning at 10 a.m. today. Because the virus is highly contagious, the health board considers just one case of measles reason enough to immunize all students. TWO TEENS NABBED ON MURDER CHARGES Police in Marion.

The teens, both from Oswego, were arrested about 9 p.m. J J AfJl Former Shelby County Prosecutor George W. Barger, a fugitive since his indictment here in July for allegedly defrauding 200 farmers in a loan-finding scam, has been arrested, the FBI said Thursday. William C. Ervin, special agent in charge of the Indianapolis FBI office, said Barger was arrested without incident in Las Vegas, Nev. Barger, 5 1 , was indicted by a federal grand jury in Indianapolis July 26 on 89 counts of mail fraud and wire fraud. The grand jury alleged that Barger and three co-defendants bilked $400,000 from farmers and others across the country. According to the indictment, Barger told victims he had access to millions of dollars and could obtain loans for them even if they were nearly bankrupt. Barger charged in advance for his service and fraudulently promised to refund the fee if the loan could not be arranged, authorities said. Four of the alleged victims are Indiana residents. Many of the farmers who accepted Barger's services, authorities said, were farmers near bankruptcy and unable to obtain credit through normal channels. STAFF RESIGNATIONS FORCE PATIENT TRANSFERS All 13 patients of the Ohio Valley Hospice in Evansville will be transferred because the facility's entire eight-member professional staff has resigned. The nurses, counselors and other employees turned in their resignations on Sept. 8, effective today, said Dr. Charles Petranek, president of Ohio Valley Hospice's 23-member board. The staff members cited "philosophical differences" with the non-profit agency's board of directors. "Nobody sought these resignations or anything like that. Where we go from here is really up to debate," Petranek said. Only the executive director and a secretary will remain, he said. The resigning employees agreed to stay on until the patient transfers are completed, Petranek said. METROPOLITAN COUNTIES MAN CONVICTED IN ATTEMPTED MURDER OF WIFE A Johnson County Superior Court jury Thursday night found an Indianapolis man guilty of attempting to murder his wife. The Jury convicted David M. Goodnight, 26, about 6:45 p.m. after deliberating four hours. He faces a prison sentence of 20 to 50 years. No sentencing date has been set. Goodnight admitted "during the trial that he stabbed his estranged wife, Roxanna, 18, on June 29, 1988. The day before, he was served with divorce papers and a restraining order to stay away from her. "Things just got out of hand. All I intended doing was getting her to come home to work our problems out," he testified. FREE IS APPOINTED NOBLESVILLE JUDGE Noblesville attorney Stephen H. Free has been appointed city judge of Noblesville by Gov. Evan Bayh. Free, 43, the first Democrat to hold a Noblesville city post since 1979, is a 1972 graduate of Stanford Law School and a 1968 graduate of Indiana University. Free was appointed to fill the last two years of a four-year term vacated by Howard "Luke" Kenley. Kenley, who had been judge since March 1974, stepped down Sept. 1 to devote more time to his business, Kenley Supermarkets, and other commitments. Free will be eligible to run for re-election in November 1991. POSSIBLE PRISON IN JOHNSON COUNTY DEBATED If residents Joseph Abboid Men's SjCC;f -q f They paid Barger and his co-defendants $200 or more to obtain loans for them, which they never received.

Ervin said Barger, a prosecutor in the late 1960s who later was disbarred, would be returned to Indianapolis for prosecution. His three alleged accomplices were arrested earlier. in Johnson County don't want a prison at Camp Atterbury, they won't be forced to have one, an aide to Gov. Evan Bayh says. "We don't want to locate any facility against the wishes of the majority of a community," said Fred Nation, Bayh's press secretary. "At this point, we don't think there is massive community opposition. But if that develops, we will look elsewhere." The Indiana Department of Correction has proposed repairing four rundown barracks to house 160 medium-security inmates at the former military training area south of Johnson County Park. Nation was responding to comments by state Rep. Woody Burton, R-Greenwood. "I'm surprised that the DOC would consider putting a prison for rapists and child molesters so close to a family recreation area," Burton said. Burton said the Bayh administration has not been responsive to concerns expressed by his constituents. But Nation said Burton is the only one to complain so far. MARION COUNTY GUILTY PLEA IN BRIBERY CASE A Carmel businessman is scheduled to plead guilty to bribery for allegedly trying to pay cash to a city employee to win a telephone service contract, Melvin L. Anspach, 48, was charged in March with offering the city employee $25 per phone to gain a contract for pay telephones on public property. The employee reported the offer to authorities, who arranged a meeting between her, Anspach and an undercover detective during which Anspach allegedly repeated the offer. Anspach was charged with one count of bribery and could receive up to eight years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000. Anspach entered an agreement with prosecutors to plead guilty, but the agreement does not include a set sentence. He is scheduled to enter the plea in a hearing Oct. 6 in Marion Superior Court, Criminal Division, Room 3, in Indianapolis. BAYH PLANS BONDS FOR HIGHWAYS The Bayh administration is planning to sell bonds to finance highway projects a practice endorsed last year by Republicans and roundly criticized by Democrats. Indiana Department of Transportation officials said this week they expect $70 million in bonds to be sold late this year or early next year to finance highway construction. The Transportation Finance Authority will meet Monday to consider a resolution endorsing the bond issue, the authority's chairman said. The bond issue would be the state's third to finance highway 'ntsrn "Kronca " I Fisher-Price ' !fnwW Procter & Gamble f9S I I (Pi fB) cB) Rf orai-e luffs' sesame rTH I mJm JL Ifri .

Highway funding was the subject of a spirited partisan debate during the 1988 legislative session, when Republicans pushed through a bill that raised the state gasoline tax by a penny a gallon and dedicated the new tax revenue to debt service on the money raised through bond issues. SHOOTING DEATH TO BE REVIEWED The Marion County prosecutor's office will review the shooting death of a 32-year-old Indianapolis man, authorities said Thursday.
