Indiana Gas Utilities To File Revised Rates An order was issued Friday, December 11, by the Public Service Commission of Indiana permitting gas utilities in Indiana, including Indiana Gas Company, to file revised rate schedules to reflect changes in the cost of gas purchased from interstate pipeline suppliers. The effect of this order is to authorize each gas utility in Indiana to recover increases, and to pass on reductions, in the cost of gas purchased from its suppliers by making appropriate adjustments in its existing customer rate schedules. Such rate adjustments may be made following an informational filing with the PSCI, and would become effective thirty days after the date of filing, subject to approval by the PSCL The order states that this tracking adjustment is needed to offset the effect of successive increases in the price of gas purchased from pipeline suppliers and the depressing effect such increases will have on the level of operating income and return previously authorized for each gas utility by the PSCL The cost of purchased gas constitutes approximately 50 percent of the annual operating expenses of the gas utilities in Indiana. This rate adjustment method was made available to gas utilities in the state because the Federal Power Commission, which regulates the rates of both the producers of natural gas and the pipeline suppliers, has permitted numerous upward rate adjustments for producers and suppliers alike, and now has under consideration additional price incentives for improving gas supply which are expected to result in further increases in the Drires Small Paintings) and Miniatures For Christmas (By Local Artists) May Be Seen At 135 So.

Since the EPC has authorized tracking provisions for pipeline companies, any increases in gas costs to them will be passed on to their distribution utility customers such as Indiana Gas Company. By MILTON RICHMAN NEW YORK (UPI) -Casey Stengel isn't ever going to let the parade pass him by. Hs's wearing those long collars now. "Styles change," he says. "You gotta keep up with *em or you're licked." Frank Lane makes his living in baseball scouting for the Baltimore Orioles but he keeps up with the other sports too, parUcuarly football and basketball having officiated both at one time. He feels that too many field goals detract rather than add to the game, because they make the other club's defense rather meaningless. And he suggests at their next league meeting the pro football people put in a rule, limiting the number of i points field goals from different | places on the field would be worth. The idea isn't a.bad one at all but Lane never is going to get somebody like George Blanda to go along with it. "Anytime they think about taking any of the foot out of football," says Oakland's place- kicking specialist, "they're making an awful mistake." ... A friend of Gene Mauch asked him how he was feeling the other day and the Montreal manager said fine. "My players claim I'll never have a heart attack because I don't have a »heart," Mauch laughed ... If you don't think sports are among the last remaining virtues of the world all you have to do is look up either Doug Sanders or Alex Webster today. Both are walking on air because of what happened Sunday, Sanders . winning bis first tournament in three years in the Bahamas and Webster's New York Giants staying alive with a 34-17 win over the St. Louis Cards. "I just want to thank all those people who never lost faith in me," Sanders says. "You know that swollen wrist of mine? It doesn't hurt a bit anymore." Webster laughs and says nothing hurts now, then adds "but we've still got a lot of work to do." ... Daryle Lamonica was asked what he thought of Pittsburgh's Terry Bradshaw. "He has a good arm and a lot of ability but he's going to have to learn consistency," said the Oakland quarterback. "He's got to learn to stay in the protective pocket more. He runs around too much." To which someone who heard Lamonica cracked: "If he played behind Pittsburgh's offensive line he'd run around a little more, too." Mrs. Flora Shaffer Rites Tuesday MOUNTAIN VIEW, CALIF.: This strange-looking structure is a 10-story office building going up—or more properly, down- because the developers, who are also the contractors, save money and say they can complete it faster this way. It works thus: an entire floor is put together on the ground, then jacked up and fastened to two inner | service cores. One crew goes aloft and installs wiring, pipes, and finishwork, while the other crew is on the ground, getting the next floor ready. A new floor is being hung every week, and the contractors expect to be on the ground by February. * Pro Basketball (Continued from page 4) For the evening, Jones had 33 and Calvin 31, and New York's Rick Barry, coming back less than a week before after a long injury, had 28. j A Texas surge left the Cougars behind, 114-108, with 3:30 left to play, but Carolina ran off nine straight points to go back in front, 117-114.

Then, Rea said, the man "seemed to realize wtathewas doing." He left the studio and headed for the front door of the building. As the man left CKPG, RCMP Const. Roger Postn one of several police around the building, called to the man to "hold it rigtt there." Const. Post approached the man, unbuckling his holster as he did so. The man then fired two shots from his Belgian-made pistol, hitting Const. Post's holster and wounding another man in the foot. Const. Post and a third man both fired, hitting the man in the armpit and mouth. He was rushed to hospital but pronounced dead on arrival. • Yince's Donuts SAT., DEC. 12,1970 ADMISSIONS: Charles Malott, Tipton; Opal Duncan, Tipton; Roxie Pickard, Tipton; John Owens, Tipton; James Hubbard, Tipton; Ezra Warfield, Windfall; Oakley Clouser, Windfall; Loren Gunkel, Tipton; Belva Baker, Elwood; Judy Click, Sheridan; Wilma Chiles, Tipton; Max Starred, Arcadia; Mary Ramey, Tipton; Patricia Dunn, Tipton.

Ever since he got Curt Flood, people keep asking Washington owner Bob Short how he feels about Flood's suit against baseball. Short answers them all the say way: "I didn't bring it; I didn't defend it." In other words if Flood hits somewhere around .350 for Washington, Bob Short might forgive him anything ... There is some interest among other clubs in Baltimore's Frank Robinson but not as much as you'd imagine there would be in someone who had 25 homers, 78 RBI's and the fifth best batting average (.306) in the American League this year. Principal reasons for the lukewarm interest in Robinson are his age (35) and his salary (an estimated $115,000) plus the fact it is known he'd like to manage in the big Ieeagues that that makes some other managers do a little thinking. The Mets bad a crack at Robinson but said they weren't interested. The Yankees said they were but they like to think a while. They're still thinking about maybe they should've gotten Hank Greenberg or at least Mike Epstein. A couple of National League clubs also are interested, but they want to think a little more about it, too. Meanwhile, Robinson's overall value in the baseball markets goes down, not up. Only a few years back when he was MVP with the Orioles you couldn't get him for anything. Now he probably can be bad for maybe a stickout minor league prospect and a "consideration," which boiled down, means cash. That's not only baseball, that's life. Chester A.

The Cambodian Command said eight government troops were killed and 99 wounded in the 12 hour battle. They said the Communists left 24 bodies behind and estimated 60 were dragged away. The recapture od Battheay was achieved with the help of tanks and reopend Highway 6 to Skoun, the crossroads town and supply center 52 miles northeast of Phnom Penh. Battheay is 25 miles north of the capital. Lt. Col. Am Rong, the official Cambodian military spokesman, said an estimated regiment of North Vietnamese troops today launched several waves of attacks against Cambodian paratroops and special forces at Prey Totung on Highway 7 about 50 miles east-northeast of Phnom Penh.
