HOURS: Everyday 6 A.M. to Midnight o TIME - (Continued from Page 1.) week Mr. Harden said his personal inquiries with bankers, labor leaders and industry offi-clafej favored sustaining ' the Chief complaints with the current timet were from mothers of small children who found it difficult to set their youngsters to bed when it was still light outdoors at nearly 10 p.m., and outdoor movie operators who couldn't start their shows until late at night. The other state representative from Bartholomew, Jackson and Decatur counties, Thomas W Hall, D-Medora, also voted to override the veto. The time question now goes to the Senate, where State Sen. Robert rGarton, R-Columbus, reported himself still uncertain how he will vote. The Senate vote on the issue is expected to be much closer than in the House. An ironic note concerning the j entire time question was the fact that the clock in the House chamber was out of order and read 1:27 p.m. when the lawmakers finally voted on the veto decision at 4:27 p.m. In other legislative action : A joint House-Senate com-m i t te e on environment met Tuesday morning with propo nents or a 31-page bill that would create a powerful state environment agency. State Rep. Ralph R. Heine, R-Columbia City, expressed doubts about the proposed Environment Management act. He said the rural areas "have the most to lose. Supporters of the bill disagreed and said the board to determine the suitability of various environmental areas will consist of professionals, not politicians. Tuesday's meeting was designed to outline the bill to House and Senate committee members, while further committee hearings are set for later in the session. - State Sen. Robert Sheaffer, R-Shelbyville, told The Republic he is co-sponsoring two bills he feels are "badly needed." One bill would repeal the full crew bill, which requires interstate trains traveling through Indiana to add one extra crew member. Terming it the "excess crew bill," Mr. Sheaffer said Indiana and North Carolina are the only states still enforcing this law. Meanwhile, the Republican senator said he would also support a bill to establish definite guidelines for the governor's reaction to passed legislation that awaits either his signature or veto. State Sen. Marshall P. Kizer, D-Plymouth, is author of the bill to obligate the governor to act on bills presented him. Basically, the bill gives the governor seven .rather than three days to act on a "bill. However, the bill states that proposed legislation will go into effect if the governor does not "get the bill back to the legislature on the first day after he has had his seven days to act." The proposed change would require the governor to return the bill during a business day of the legislative session. State Sen. Earl Wilson, R-Bed-ford, said Tuesday his agriculture committee is not expected to have too much major legislation this session. One proposal expected to come from his committee is the registration of livestock weighing personnel at stockyards and other locations where livestock is sold. "I believe this bill would guarantee a fair weight of all the livestock sold," said Mr. Wilson, whose district includes Jackson county. "Actually, my chief concern this year will be with education." he continued. ."We're in an- evolution in education and I think we have some good things awaiting action In this session of the legislature." Many legislators have expressed satisfaction with the new procedure of having com-m i 1 1 e e meetings during the morning hours and the general legislative sessions in the afternoon. For the past several sessions, most general legislative sessions were conducted in, the morning with the committee meetings in the afternoon. - Mr. Hall said h preferred the morning committee meeting schedule. He said most of his committee meetings begin at 8 a.m. 1 ' , " " 1 ' I 1 J Jk . SUPER STACK State Sen. Robert D. Gar-ton, R-Columbus, pats good-bye to a huge stack of state laws approved since 1851 that will be replaced by the neat stack of books, right front, hick-named Super Bill. o SUPER (Continued from Page 1.) the same. He said that for the first time, lawyers, legislators and others who need to refer to Indiana law on any one subject can find it easily. He said the way will be opened in the future to data retrieval of all law on any subject in a matter of seconds. In the House bipartisan speakers also explained the value of the compilation. Rep. James T. Robison, R-Frankfort, said it would "aid the Legislature in preparing meaningful legislation and will be a solid base for future legislation." Rep. Richard J. Lesniak, D-East Chicago, minority caucus chairman, said the compilation was an appropriate first bill to pass the 1971 Legislature which "received a mandate from the people of Indiana to provide a modern form of government." Immediate objects of the delay in further passage of legislation, pending the governor's signature on Superbill were the eight 1969 bills on which Whit-comb's veto was overridden in one chamber Tuesday. The action on the 21 remaining bills from the 64 Whitcomb vetoed two years ago was stopped midway so they Would not become law during the hiatus between passage of Superbill and its emergence as the sole body of law. The House bill that would exempt Indiana from the federal daylight savings law had top interest. The House over-rode Whitcomb's 1969 veto by a vote of 61-36. This was one of the most controversial vetoes among all the bills killed by the governor after the 1969 Legislature. In the Senate, the big interest came on a second consecutive 25-25 tie vote on a bill appropriating $25,000 to the State Board of Health for construction of a special state facility for the multi-handicapped. Whitcomb had vetoed it for lack of funds to finance the project. Folz again broke the tie, as he had the day before on a parochial school aid bill, to uphold Whitcomb's veto. Pension Veto Overriden The lone Senate bill on which Whitcomb's veto was over-ridden would create new retirement and disability pension programs for state excise police and state conservation enforcement officers. Companion legislation increasing boat fees and licenses for bartenders and bar-maids to Support the pension became law two years ago and has accumulated more than enough money for the pe-stons. The over-ride' "Vote ' was 41-8 but it will" also have to have House approval. Here are the other 1969 House bills on which Whitcomb's veto was overthrown by the House Tuesday : Provide that the state pay the cost of trials of criminals who commit new crimes inside penal institutions and are tried in courts where the institution is located, 66-29. Provide payments to pa tients at state mental institutions for work they do, estimated to cost $2 million a year, 55-42. Exempt firemen trained in first aid from liability in cases in which they provide first aid at the scene of an accident, 59-37. Create a merit system for regularly organized fire departments in Lake County, 56-40. Extend the provisions of the state personnel, act to employes of the State Commission on the Aging and Aged, 84-13. Appropriate $25,000 to make Indiana a member in the Multi-State Tax Commission, 77-20. MAN SLATED Indiana state police charged Robert H. Norwood, 41, 1510 Franklin street, with Dublic in toxication at 3:30 a.m. today at the Union 76 truck stop on Road 31 at Taylorsville. b THE REPUBLIC COLUMBUS; INDIANA, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY Nashville Goes To Seven Digits NASHVILLE Nashville residents have started dialing seven digits to complete their local telephone calls.

(UPI) Four residents of the Stevens Hotel were killed early today when they were overcome by fumes while sleeping, police reported. The four included at least one child, Ida 'Cottrell, 11. Police Sgt. Lee Reece said at least six other persons were rushed to St. Catherine's Hospital. The other dead were identified as Gene Allen, George Stinett and Eli Wilkins. Reece said a loose connection from the chimney flue to the smoke stack apparently caused fumes to seep into the rooms where the victims were sleeping. Five of six persons were treated and released at the hospital but Mrs. Gloria Jean Cottrell, mother of the dead girl, was admitted in "fair" condition. Those released following treatment were identified as Michael Sictor, 46; Eldon Car-michael, 50; Paul Sabo, 56; William Maines, 22, and Luther Bradley, 44.

Jack Whittington of the Columbus police department juvenile division has announced that bicycle plates which expire on May 31 will be reduced to 25 cents today. The plates sold for 50 cents from June to January 20. A city ordinance requires that all bicycles used within the Columbus city limits have license plates. Mr. Whittington also stated that a bicycle serial number must be given when plates are purchased. The juvenile officer also urged anyon having lost a bicycle in the laSt six months to call police and check with the juvenile division to see if the bike has been recovered. "By buying plates it is an added protection from theft and increases the possibility of recovery," said Mr. Whittington. Muskie Tour Has Changed Stand WASHINGTON (UPI) -Sen. Edmund S. Muskie has changed his mind about backing a unilateral withdrawal of U.S. troops from Europe. In the past the Maine Democrat has been a staunch supporter of resolutions by Sen.

In 20 years as an actor and stuift man, Maynard played in over 40Q.Biclu: Returning to Columbus occasionally to visit his parents, Maynard spent three weeks here In 1935, making personal appearances and signing hundreds of autographs for many groups in-eluding classes at Garfield school which he attended. - One clipping in the files of The Evening Republican, now The Republic, recounts how one of 500 hys at a Poys club party in the1- actor's honor appeared a little skeptical about Maynard's talk of stunting following showing of one of his films, "Red Blooded Courage." Maynard then "put on a pair of tennis shoes and leaped from the railing of the ' balcony to the stage" in the high school auditorium (now Central junior high school). Maynard enjoyed showing rope tricks and answering questions about his work, the clippings' reported. He recounted that his "biggest thrill" had come during the filming of a scene in Montana in which 400 buffaloes were on the run. A smalL young man standing in for the heroine of the picture accidentally fell from his horse when it stumbled while running ahead of the herd. The actor in the path of the herd had no opportunity to run but he managed to stay on his feet, dodging the animals until Maynard, on a horse in the herd, could reach him. In the episode in which he was injured during the filming of "Northwest Stampede," Maynard had thrown the stunt girl with him to safety, saving her from injury. He wrote to his mother in Columbus that newspapers had made him out to be a "bit of a hero" but that he wasn't because "we just do the best we can for each other when a thing like that comes up." The actor also is survived by his wife, Edith, and a son, William Frederick Maynard, both of North Hollywood.

Can't Tell by Sticker Color Vehicle inspection law violations can not definitely be determined on the basis ,of sticker color, contrary to an article pub lished Tuesday in The Republic. The article stated that police could spot the law violators if the inspection sticker was another color besides white. Actually, only those cars scheduled for inspection since Jan. 1 would have white stickers. If the car was inspected in June of 1970, for instance, the sticker is gpod through June of this year, and would be the orange sticker for 1970. The sticker issued upon inspection this June would then be white. A white sticker, however, should clearly indicate to a police office that the inspection is current.
