Piecing together a dramatic 92-yard touchdown drive in the final minute, the San Francisco 49ers claimed the title as NFL team of the decade Sunday, winning their third Super Bowl of the 1980s with a dramatic 20-16 come-from-behind victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. San Francisco wide receiver Jerry Rice was named the game's Most Valuable Player, catching 1 1 passes for a Super Bowl record 215 yards. He had 41 yards worth of receptions in the 49ers' winning drive. But it was quarterback Joe Montana who was the Super Bowl hero, completing eight of nine passes during the winning drive for 97 yards including the game-clinching 10-yard touchdown toss to receiver John Taylor with 34 seconds to play. For the game, Montana completed 23 of 36 passes for a Super Bowl record 357 yards and two touchdowns. The game ended a streak of six consecutive Super Bowls won by an average score of 37-13, dating back to San Francisco's 26-21 win over the Bengals after the 1981 season. It also marked the fifth consecutive year the NFC representative has won the annual Ultimate Game. Full Super Bowl coverage, Section C TP 7 nil 1 cv. - -T-o r 11 2 ' nJ II"!

Last-minute strategy aims for Byody stay By DAVID FINKEL Times Staff Writer Even as Ted Bundy spent much of the weekend confessing to unsolved murders, lawyers trying to keep him from the electric chair grew more hopeful that they can win a last-minute stay of execution from the U.S. Supreme Court. The reason for their optimism: a new, yet-to-be-aired issue for appeal that centers on whether a judge said the right things to a jury almost a decade ago when Bundy was on trial for killing 12-year-old Kimberly Leach in Lake City. Bundy, who is scheduled to be executed Tuesday for the murder of Miss Leach, reportedly confessed over the weekend to killing at least nine young women. Those confessions stopped for a time Sunday, however, as the appeal that will be submitted this morning to the U.S. Supreme Court took shape. Additionally, Bundy called off an interview with reporters scheduled for today at noon. The issue that has surfaced somewhat technical in nature has to do with whether the judge overseeing the Leach trial conveyed to jurors how important their opinion would be to him when he decided Bundy's sentence. Though a jury only advises a judge in capital cases on what it thinks is a proper sentence, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that death sentences can be thrown out on appeal if jurors have been led to believe their role isn't significant.

Did Bundy have anything to do with her disappearance? That's a question that has plagued law enforcement officials for years. They hope to find the answer before Bundy's scheduled execution Tuesday in Florida's electric chair. Ann Marie Burr disappeared from her home wearing only a blue flowered nightgown. Her parents, Donald and Beverly Burr, believe their pretty young daughter may have been Ted Bundy's first victim. Police in Tacoma found a garden bench tilted on end outside a window, a few shreds of red fiber, a footprint that might have belonged to a teen-age boy and nothing else.

Jeff Hyland, a real estate broker, sat by his pool reading the paper. Sandy and Teryn Wayne watched the Super Bowl with friends. Zsa Zsa Gabor was back home with her dogs on Bel Air Road. And just down the hill a bit, over at 668 Saint Cloud Road, the newest neighbors, Mr. and Mrs. Ronald Reagan, were unpacking boxes in their new home. The 7,192-square-foot, ranch-style house on a 1.5-acre lot is surrounded by a tall chain-link fence shrouded with tan canvas and is watched by security cameras, a sentry in a guard house at the end of the driveway and Secret Service men in a car. It was the first weekend at liberty for the former president, retiring to the Southern California surroundings where he spent most of his life as an actor. "They are settling in, unpacking boxes," said Reagan spokesman, Mark D. Weinberg, a former assistant White House press secretary.

WARSAW The Solidarity movement Sunday accepted the offer of Communist authorities for broad negotiations aimed at setting the terms for legalization of the independent union as well as establishing a consensus on economic and political reforms. Following a two-day meeting in Gdansk of Solidarity's national executive commission, the union released a statement saying the Polish Communist Party had taken "a basic step towards social dialogue" last week by agreeing to accept the restoration of Solidarity seven years after its suppression "Anything could still happen. But you can see a chance; you can see hope. " Lech Walesa under martial law. "Negotiations should start as soon as possible," the statement said. Solidarity leader Lech Walesa, jubilant in addressing supporters at St. Brygida's Church in Gdansk, said he believed there was a better chance of cooperation between the popular opposition movement and gov ernment under Gen. Wojciech Jaruzelski now than in 1981, when the country was rocked by strikes and conflict. "Our answer is an outstretched hand because the other side put their hand out too," Walesa told his cheering followers. He later added: "I wouldn't want too much euphoria. Anything could still happen. But you can see a chance; you can see hope." Solidarity's decision appeared to open the way for the initiation of elaborate "round table" negotiations first proposed by Jaruzelski last September, after Poland was hit by the second wave of industrial unrest in four Please see SOLIDARITY 4-A Yoked to tradition, India inches toward modernity 'Here, the new comes, but the old stays on' Second in a series By REENA SHAH Times Correspondent NEW DELHI he gardeners were busy barbering a lawn in Delhi's historic Red Fort. One held the lawn mower, the other maneuvered its "motor," a patiently plodding cow. The gardener gently twisted the animal's tail to steer it. "Yes, my beautiful king. Walk straight on. . . . Very good Keep going, you bastard!" At the end of the exercise, the bullock got to eat the grass it cut. The gardeners squatted under the shade of a tree. There was not enough land in their village, so they were putting their cattle to use in greening the Indian capital. "This is the most efficient motor the government can use," the bullock's owner said. "No petrol. No spare parts. And no waste."

The cow dung would be dried and used as fuel to cook meals; milk might be sold for extra money. While some of the city telegraph poles, machinery, televisions has penetrated the village, rural India has poured itself into the city and found its niche. The things of the past stay on. The new order goes at its own pace, harnessing the old. Conquered and settled through its history by a host of invaders including Aryans, Greeks, Mongols, Turks and the British, India is like a large boa constrictor that comfortably swallowed whole the cultures it encountered and assimilated them. "If you want an idea of what India really is and where it is headed for," remarked Avadh Kishore Narain, a historian, "stand in a street corner and watch the traffic. "There are cows, buses, horse-carriages, rickshaws, Suzukis, scooters, handcarts. They all belong in our streets. We've added tractors and atomic power to the country, but the cow and cow dung are still here as they were two thousand years ago. "Freeway traffic is possible in a place where they have what they call change a break from the past," said Narain, who has lived and taught in the United States. "Here, the new comes, but the old stays on." Technology and science have nudged India into the 20th century. Like the cow dragging the lawn mower, the country am bles onward, carrying the cultural baggage, attitudes and habits of its 5,000-year-old civilization along with the modern gadgets science has to offer. The contrasts never cease to astound, the paradoxes deepen. As part of its ambitions as a modern and emerging nation, India has launched its own satellites and exploded its own nuclear device. Yet it is unable to predict or control the catastrophic floods and droughts that ravage it almost every year. Though possessing state-Please see INDIA 14-A
