Kentucky state police and the FBI suspected arson while investigating a fire at a Chessie System railroad trestle In Wayland,' Floyd County, which authorities said appeared related to the UMW strike. inmates in the rural area Of southwest Escambia County, near the Florida slate line. Tate said inmates cut a master switch in Holman's primary power house between 9:30 and 10p.m. He said the prison was thrown into darkness for about 15 minutes while guards struggled to get the auxiliary power station operating. "The (escaped) inmates came out of a dorm, went through a window and cut holes through two fences," Tate said. He said guards at Fountain notified authorities that the electricity had been knocked out at Holman. The escapees were identified as Tony R. Nolin, 26; James R. Straigtz, 29; Ronald E. Kennedy, 39; Randy H. Livingston, 30; Olynnk Burnett, 37; Kenneth Hendley, 44; and Gerald Armitage, 27. Tate said Nolin, Kennedy. Burnett and Armitage were serving terms for murder, while Straigtz was serving a total of 30 years for grand larceny, burglary and escape, Livingston was sentenced to 50 years for promoting prostitution and Hendley was serving 22 years for robbery and escape. Police said two gasoline-doused automobile tires were set afire to start the blaze, which destroyed the 96' foot-long trestle. The single^ track trestle Which spans a creek is a part of the main line Chessie track. The nearby rail line serves several mining operations in the area. Firefighters were summoned to the 1 a.m. Sunday blaze but failed to respond because of an anonymous telephone threat. A police dispatcher said firemen were told, "If you go, you're going to get shot." The incident was the second Involving railroad facilities in Kentucky during the strike. Trestles were dynamited in the earlier incident. Meanwhile, banks and businesses will help striking 'southeastern Ohio miners weather the strike's economic storms, says a union official in UMW District 6. "They know the mines will do business with them when times are good," said union international executive board member Tony Bumbico, "so they help our men out when times aren't so good. If they turn down someone when things aren't good, they might • not get the business back when the strike is settled." The district's approximately 11,000 striking miners in southern Ohio and the West Virginia Northern Panhandle are taking odd jobs or staying close to home, "trying to hold on to what they have," said Bumbico.

"Me (Church) told them the operators came back with a very weakened version of the union standards clause 'and the union rejected it," UMW spokesman Eldon Callen said of the call. fop Bituminous Coal Operators Association negotiator B.R. Brown of Consolidation Coal Co. declined comment Sunday on the standards clause and this week's meetings. Other key issues include the non-union royalty clause, which before its elimination by the industry in the first contract had called for payments of $1.90 per ton to the UMW for non-union coal processed at union facilities. Although talks w.ere hung up,, Church called a positive step the industry's willingness to talk about the issues which made the union rank and file reject the industry contract proposal by a 2-1 margin March 31. Million Black Students In College WASHINGTON (UPI) The number of black college students shot up from 522,000 in 1970 to about 1 million in 1980, reports the Census Bureau. In the same report released Sunday, the Census Bureau said overall school enrollment decreased during the past decade with the drop more pronounced in > elementary schools. But enrollment in nursery schools went against the. overall trend, an indication that more women are working or going to school and leaving their children in day care centers. At 2 million in 1980, the number was almost double the enrollment of 1.1 million 10 years earlier. A preliminary census report on the social and economic characteristics of students said about l million blacks between the ages of 14 to 34' were enrolled in college last October. The survey said the slide in overall school enrollment of all races reflects a decrease in births that began in the 1960s. There were 57.3 million people aged 3 to 34 years in school in October, down 3,6 million from 1975 and down 3 million from 1970, the study said. The bulk of the increase in the number of blacks in college came between 1970 and 1976, a Census Bureau analyst said, but no reason was given.
