(AP) - The Montana Supreme Court Monday authorized the state's largest utility company to go ahead and collect an estimated $25 million in additional natural gas rates. The action was taken with the understanding that the Montana Power Company might have to refund all or part of that amount. The order directs the Public Service Commission to set aside its recent order refusing a Montana Power Company request to pass through to its customers, without a public hearing, price increases set in Canada since Jan. 1. That increase is estimated at about $13 million. The PSC granted the Montana Power Company a $12 million rate increase last August, but the legality of that increase is pending before the Supreme Court. Definite progress in negotiations on a new master contract for the 412 teachers in the Bismarck public school system was reported following Wednesday's round of talks between the school board and Bismarck Education Association negotiating teams. Lyle Reinke, chief negotiator for the teachers, said Thursday he was "guardedly optimistic" that an agreement was near.

The school board had presented a new salary schedule to the teachers last Friday which raises the base pay for a new teacher in the Robbery, Assault Suspect Remains Subject of Probe North Dakota law enforcement officers Thursday continued their hunt for Dennis Mees, Bismarck, one of three men charged with armed robbery and assault crimes last weekend. .

A teacher at the top of the scale with 14 years experience and a master's degree plus 15 hours would jump from $13,950 to $15,075. Reinke said the percentage of increase proposed by the board averages about 15 per cent, including fringe benefits. The board proposal, including an increase in fringe benefits, would cost the school district an estimated additional $570,000 a year. At Wednesday's session, the teachers presented three alternate counterproposals to the board's new offer. Reinke said while salary schedule changes vary somewhat, each of the teacher proposals carries a price tag to the district of an estimated additional $825,000. Each alternate asked full medical coverage. Two alternates include career increment adjustments for teachers at the top of the scale, and one carries a proposal for a flat $100 cost of living increase on the remainder of the current contract. Reinke estimates the teachers' counteroffers would provide salary increases averaging about 20 per cent. The negotiators said tentative agreement was reached on the school board offer to increase the 6chool district's share of medical coverage from the current $20 to $25 a month for all full time teachers participating in group insurance.

SSs Governments Brace For Leftist Activity By The Associated Press The governments of Spain, Portugal, Uruguay, Mexico and Greece prepared for possible May Day trouble Thursday, while in Moscow Soviet leaders lined up atop Lenin's tomb for the traditional Red Square parade on the international labor day. The Moscow parade lasted 2 hours and 15 minutes, but Communist party chief Leonid I. Brezhnev stood bareheaded atop the tomb for the entire time, smiling and waving to the workers and athletes marching past. Foreign guests included Brig. Gen. Thomas G. Stafford, who heads the American team for the joint Soviet-American space flight in July, and Yasir Arafat, the chief of the Palestine Liberation Organization: Extra police patrolled Spain's chief cities. A bank was firebombed in Pamplona, at the edge of the Basque country. Demonstrators beat up a policeman in Barcelona. Madrid had a battle of leaflets, with leftists scattering broadsides calling for the end of the Franco regime and Falangists passing out leaflets promising to "fight against all capitalism and communism." Portugal's leftist military government braced for street clashes as the Communist-dominated central trade union refused to let the moderate Popular Democrat party, which ran second to the Socialists in last week's elections, take part in the official celebrations. In Athens, the extremist Revolutionary Communist Movement of Greece, which claimed it was responsibile for the attack on the U.S. Embassy last week, went ahead with plans for a giant rally despite a government ban and a police threat to disperse it by force. Uruguayan army and police units using helicopters patrolled Montevideo in a show of force to prevent any rallies. But signs appeared on buildings urging workers to protest against the government and make. May Day "combative." The Argentine pol'ce also patrolled in force in an attempt to avert terrorist attacks as thousands of Peronists converged on Buenos Aires for a rally. President Isabel Peron was to address Congress on the state of the nation, then make a speech from the balcony of the presidential palace. Mexican labor leaders predicted 700,000 workers would turn out for a progovernment parade in Mexico City, an the guerrillas of the 23rd of September Communist League sent out leaflets saying 'Let's turn this May 1 celebration into a bloody and red one." during May only Uimnnsniial Even if your trip is months away buy from us in May and save up to $48!
