James I. Carnes, 27, of Huntington, stopped at the market at about 2 a.m. Saturday after leaving work at The Charleston Gazette, where he is a copy reader. Carnes said he was driving down Seventh Avenue, on his way to the 1-64 entrance at Dunbar, when the man in the back of the car threw something that felt like leather around his throat and pulled his head back against the seat's head rest. The man took Carnes' glasses and ordered him to drive to the Tyler Mountain area and forced him to stop at an isolated spot. He asked for the driver's money. "When I told him I didn't have any, he hit me," Carnes said. Carnes said he was struck at least four times. When the man left, he took the glasses valued at $80 to $90; a tape player worth about $60; a wedding ring worth $80 to $90; a watch worth $35; and a key case worth about $7. In addition to holding him with the strap, Carnes said the assailant held him by the hair part of the time. "I had the seat belt on and couldn't turn around," Carnes said. The car was unlocked while he was inside the market, Carnes said. It was parked in a well-lighted spot in front of the store. (C) .\e» York Time* Serrice NEW YORK - Paul Kolton, chairman of the American Stock Exchange has disclosed that the Amex is embarking on a five-year program to expand its facilities -- including the possibility of double-decking its SVi-story trading floor. Kolton said Friday that, as a first step in what might become a multimillion-dollar construction program, the exchange's board of governors had allocated $100,000 for expansion studies. He added that the exchange expected to sign contracts with two leading architectural and engineering firms within three weeks. The disclosure, made only one week after the Amex rejected industry proposals that it merge with the larger New York Stock Exchange, came at a time of increasingly good fortune for the nation's second largest stock market. Trading volume last month soared nearly 70 per cent to an average of 3 million shares a day. A new stock options trading program introduced last January has been a substantial success. And a $218,000 loss the Amex suffered in the first half of 1974 was turned into a profit for the same period this year in excess of $500,000. Although construction of a new trading floor in the air space above present trading facilities is only one possibility, Kolton said the concept had become increasingly popular. The Chicago Board Options Exchange, which led the way in new options trading among investors, built an entire new floor above the Chicago Board of Trade's five- story trading floor in only six months at a cost of $2.5 million. The Morgan Guaranty Trust Co., unable to find space big enough for expansion, suspended a "floating floor" from a 26-foot-high ceiling in its building here. The exchange's chairman said the Amex owned a 14-story building at 86 Trinity Place and leased a 10-story building next door. He refused to speculate on the possibility that the exchange might expand into the leased space if double-decking was deemed inadvisable, although real estate interests familiar with the Trinity Place building maintained that it had enough space for major new floor trading facilities. Kolton said it was too early to put a price on the program, but noted that the exchange had $10 million in liquid assets. As an indication of what the exchange had in mind, he stressed that "to the extent the exchange can finance its expansion out of capital, that's the way to do it." The Amex presently has 500 employes and about 225 more on the payroll of a computer company jointly owned with the Big Board and working on Amex-related activities. WILKESBORO, N.C. - The Rev. Robert Blakely MeNeill. former pastor of Bream Memorial Presb)lerLan Church in Charleston, W. Va., died here Friday. He was 60. Mr. McNeill moved to Charleston after he was discharged in 1959 from a church in Columbus, Ga., for, as he wrote in "Look" magazine in 1965, "being on the wrong side of the race issue." In 1957, Mr. McNeill declared in a previous "Look" article that "it is inevitable that laws of racial reference will be abolished." As a result of his antisegregation stand, he was denounced in the South as "a man who was as extreme in one direction as the Klan was in the other," he wrote. After he moved to Charleston, he said he had found a refreshing "openness" there. He spent nine years as pastor of Bream Memorial, then resigned because the pressures of being a minister "have finally gotten to me." "My spirit may be tough enough," he explained, "but the spirit cannot be detached from the body which ultimately bears the brunt of stress." CHURNS PHOTOGRAPH CONTEST From Page One Grain Inspection Agency Admits Cash Advances (C) New York Time* Service NEW ORLEANS-The agency that is supposed to perform impartial inspection services for the Bunge Corp. grain elevator near here received a number of cash advances from Bunge in the 1960s. Bryan J. Lehmann Jr., the head of the agency, the Destrehan Board of Trade, Inc., confirmed that he had received the advances on future revenues, and that the practice had been discontinued because the Agriculture Department now frowns on it. Extension Eyed For 3 Business Tax Cut Laws WASHINGTON (AP)-Sen. Gaylord Nelson says he will introduce a bill to extend three tax cuts voted earlier this year for small and medium-size businesses. Nelson, D-Wis., chairman of the Senate Small Business Committee, said that if the tax cut is allowed to expire as the economy is trying to pull out of a recession, "millions of smaller companies will be paralyzed by uncertainty." His bill, which he said would be introduced on Monday, would continue a 20-percent tax rate on corporate earnings under $25;000; extend the provision exempting corporate earnings under $50,000 from the corporate surtax, and a tax credit for investment in up to $100,000 worth of used equipment.

Robert B. McNeill Wills Us Free," which was published in 1965 by Hill and Wang Inc. of New York.

Mr. McNeill was a native of Birmingham, Ala. He was educated at Birmingham-Southern College, the University ol Kentucky, and Union Theological Seminary. At the time of his death, he was a member of the faculty of Wilkes Community College here.

The chief management negotiator, Darrell Brown, told newsmen that "wide and important differences" remained over these issues, but added that "we're going to stay at it in order to reach an agreement within the short time that remains." The average clerk, postman or pickup truck driver now makes about $13,500 per year at top scale, plus fringe benefits. Despite efforts to avoid a strike by the union's 600,000 postal workers, union and management officials said they were concerned about the possibility of wildcat strikes or demonstrations by union members in some cities if no agreement was reached before the current contract expired at 11:59 p.m. Sunday.
