The nearest lliing (o a typical forecast is this: over the long- term the market will continue to advance, reaching npw highs on Hie industrial average by the year's end, but in the meantime Ihere will be a correction. : . DECLINE That correction, which is .. euphemism' for decline, is yari- ouslv forecast to range from 10 per "cent to 20 per c e n t / a n d . t o occur in almost any month, probably in May or June.

He ended the saga by killing himself, authorities say. "When he talked ^a bo u t all those people being dead, he would laugh about it," said Susie Critton, a hostage who taped unharmed. "He was smiling .about it like ho was glad. He had no regrets. He just b ept t alking an d sniffing the cocaine." Mps'es Pearson "Jr.i 31, apparently was angry , at being -cheated in a cocaine deal when he started the crime spree in his' hometown of Jacksonville^ Fla.,. on Saturday nJghl, author- ilics said. He left two men dead [here and six wounded. FLED NORTH Then he fled north into Geor gia, killing a third man. and wounding seven others. Along the way,, he abducted six women who csca ned un harmed -- three who drove him into Georgia and a Bay Village Ohio, woman and her two teen ^age daughters, abducted on c Geargia highway. Pearson began, his rampag ·'with; three shootings within a 30-minute span in, north Jack 'sonville, police spokesman 'Mike Gould said. At all threi locations he demanded money. VRobbery was at least a par tial motive, but we feel there' a strong possibility of a drut tie-in in all those cases. Eithe he .was ripped olf or had beei 'ripped off" in the past," GotiM 'said. "We know he had an ar gumenl with some of these people." Gould said Pearson shot am killed Horace Fallen, the man ager of a used car lot, in Fall en's office. Two others ther were wounded. G ould said in vestigators believe a cocain deal was the source of "ba blood" between Pearson Fallen. As authorities reconstructed Pearson's wild odyssey, he the went lo a roadside wig sho where he shot and killed th manager, George Quarles, 55 who had sworn o u t warrant for Pearson after a robbery a the shop last week. THREE WOUNDED After wounding three person at the nearby home of a worn a who worked in the wig shop authorities said, Pearson aban doned his car at a drive-in quor store and abducted Mrs Critton and Anita Cockficld, 22 'and her sister Sharon, 18, Pearson forced Ihe women 1 drive him to a wooded are where he picked up a suitcas filled with money, Iwo othe guns and a change of clothe.

During the Looting, Mrs. Critton escaped. RAMS CAR A short time later, Pearson wounded another service sta- ion attendant in a robbery at- empt on the highway north of 'inehurst. Still driving north on 1-75, au- lorities said, Pearson rammed nto the rear of the car of the -eslie : Janda family, heading lome to Ohio after a Florida vacation. Pearson shot Janda in the arm, commandeered "the car and abducted Mrs. Janda and their two teen-age daugh- ers. · · · · · · ' :· ." . "Sometimes he was nice to us," Jodee Janda, 16, said later. "But he kept talking abou idw, it's .a white man's work and a black man can't even en- oy the birds, the trees and the sunshine." But Carl Chappel], an agent for the' Georgia Bureau of Investigation, said there was "nothing to indicate any-racia angls at all", for Pearson, who was black.

Bilingual Ballots For Indian Tribes Pose Many Problems Associated Press Writer The federal law requiring bilingual ballots has been welcomed in many Spanish-speaking areas, hut wh/*n it comes to printing ballots in Indian languages, many election cfficia s are in a quandary. Chickahominy 1 'and Arikara are' virtually extinct. Lumbee and Ojibway are unwritten languages. Cherokee, says one election official, "looks like a cross between hieroglyphics and Yiddish." And in Flay wa rd, Wis ., city clerk Rolf Williamson" said the. Indians in surrounding Sa\vyer County "read English belter than I do." Hay ward itself, population 1,600, has about six Indians but none speaks or writes an Indian language, Williamson said. Nevertheless, Hayward was one of about 500 towns, cities and counties which have been told to come up with bilingua ballots and election materials. The bilingual requirements are included in amendments to the Voting Rfghts Act. Congress passed the amendments las August in an attempt to make it easier for more Americans to vote. Last week, th/i Just cc D e p a r t m e n t issued modi fications of interim guideline, sent out last fall. The bilingua rules are to take effect after a 30-day period for public com Some areas, even though ccn sus f i g u r e s say they should use bilingual ballots, may be ox cmplcd on a common sens basis. For instance: Charles City County in Vir ginia was on the Justice De part mint's list. More than per cent of the county's 5,200 ·esidents are Chickahominy Indians, so theoretically it is sub- cct to the amendments. However, the Justice officials agreed with Virginia Atty. Gpn. Andrew P. Miller that Chickahominy is a dead language, hat all the Indians know English, that few if any know or read a word of Chickahommy, and thai therefore bilingual ballots arc not "sensible." Justice Department attorney David Burns said the department's list of bilingual ballot areas was ccompilcd on the basis of Census Bureau reports and failed to consider other conditions. Gas Welf Chokes CnOWLEY, 'l,a. CAP) -- A wild natural gas well in Acadia Parish was choked off Saturday and the sheriff's office said people who fled from the immediate yrca were returning home. , Five families bad been evacuated after the well began spewing gas and water Friday afternoon during workover operations. Deputies cordoned off the artfc while workers plugged the well with the mixture that drillers call heavy mud. The well is owned by Pelro- funds Inc. of Houston. C. M, Berry, vice president, said workmen had lo let the well spew lo case pressure and avoid a more serious blowout. Berry said pressure at the wellhead had threatened lo get out of hand during workover activities. Alternative School is A 'Choice' Southern "states with [right-to- state committee,work laws, among them Georgia. ; The so-called "right-to-work" laws prohibit union shops, and Jackson maintained that this encourages lower pay and .thus flight, by industry lo t h e ; South, didn't cite specific' differences in pay. Udall, Jackson and Carter anguished, meanwhile, over the halt in distribution of federal matching money that has left their campaigns short of funds. Jackson and Udall ' blamed President Ford, while . Carter, admitting be, loo, would like to hang (he problem on Ford, faulted Congress for not swiftly reviving the federal campaign law knocked down ' by the Supreme Court. , ' The high court said the Federal · Election ';.!
