Session Tuesday— State Gambles Thous In Bidding For "Atom-Smasher" Site By HORTENSE MYERS INDIANAPOLIS (UPI)— Indiana gambled thousands of 'dollars today in costs of a special session of the legislature next Tuesday on the chance the federal government will select a Hoosier site for a $280 million atomic research facility. Governor Branigin called a special session, which may last only one day but more likely will stretch into two, for next Tuesday at 10 a.m. The purpose is to set up legislation needed to implement Indiana's bid for the giant atom laboratory which, if it comes to this state in preference over 19 others actively seeking the project, probably will be built on a site along Eagle Creek northwest of Indianapolis. It was part effort" by the and legislative of an "all-out chief executive leaders for an installation they see as a potential economic asset of great value to Hoosier s.

Those bills are: —A measure authorizing Branigin to obtain whatever land is needed as a site for the proposed Atomic Energy Commission center and to present the land to the AEC if Indiana is selected. —An appropriation calling for up to $10 million to be spent from general fund revenues in obtaining the needed land. Only If Needed House Speaker Richard C. Bodine, D-Mishawaka, said such an appropriation, to be made only if the AEC selects an Indiana site, "will mean no increase in taxes nor shortening of falling back en already approved programs." He said Indiana Department of Administration Commissioner John Hatchett has said the surplus from sales and income tax collections above estimates will be more than $10 million. Lt. Gov. Robert L.

James Bowling, 24, Connersville, Ind., a graduate student at the University of California, said he "guesses not many other people appreciate cave exploring either." His parents, Mr. and Mrs. Donald Dowling, arrived here Tuesday from Indiana to visit the young man who is in critical condition. Dowling is recovering from exhaustion and exposure that resulted from his unsuccessful attempt to conquer 1,170 foot Nesf's cave. He was hauled from the deep, wet cave in the rugged mountains east of here by a crack team of rescuers. Hospital officials said Dowling was recovering but would remain hospitalized for about two more weeks. Dowling said he was evidently not in condition for the deep cave. He made the trip with two companions and spent about nine hours hanging in his climbing harness about 400 feet from the surface. "The last thing I remember, I was sitting there taking a little rest in the cave and I don't remember anything else until I woke up in the hospital." .Dowling said the cave was not a "sight-seeing cave" but a real "climber's cave. It's the kind of cave that gives you a I challenge." parties have agreed to recommend to the respective party membership that the subject'of the special session be limited to the question of passage of the legislation requested by the governor to promote the location of the nuclear research center in this state." "Bills pending before the General Assembly by reason of their veto following the last regular session will be considered by the special session in the manner prescribed by the Indiana Constitution," the statement concluded, i See No Delays In answering questions at the news conference, the legislators made it clear that they expect Branigin's veto of a bill to abolish capital punishment, one of 21 vetoed measures to be considered, will not prolong the session beyond two days. Rock did concede, however, that "capital punishment is the one bill which has more inherent likelihood than the others" to produce a session-lengthening action. The 21 vetoed bills each will go to the chamber in which it originated and the question will be put to the lawmakers whether to uphold the governor's veto or override it. The rules do not permit discussion on such votes, but legislators get around this often by speaking on a point of personal privilege or "explaining my vote." The measure' to repeal capital punishment was one of 14 House bills, so it will go first to Bodine. Only if the House should override Branigin's veto, would the capital punishment measure reach the Senate.

He explained Wednesday that only a portion of the 33,000 persons to whom the corrected notices are being sent actually had an error in their tax statement. But he said there was no way of being sure how many wrong statements were sent out when the error was discovered.
