By NEIL GILBRIDE,, AP Labor Writer WASHINGTON (AP)-A tentative contract agreement providing an increase of 6.5 per cent a year in wages and fringe benefits was announced today in the nationwide strike of some 200,000 telephone workers. The three-year contract, a pattern for all 600,000 Bell Telephone System Workers, totals 19.58 per cent in higher wages and other benefits over the life of the contract. It will cost the Bell System more than $2 billion, said President Joseph A. Beirne of the A F L -C I 0 Communications Workers of America. Beirne said the strike, the first nationwide telephone walkout in 21 years, could end early next week after ratification by the strikers. Union and company negotiating teams in 17 cities worked through Wednesday night in hopes of ironing out final differences. "We would like to wrap it up," said a spokesman for union President Joseph A. Beirne. One hopeful note appeared when a Wednesday midnight deadline for nearly 10,000 Virginia telephone workers to Join the strike was postponed on a day-to-day basis for up to three days. Federal officials had privately expressed concern over the possible effects of a Virginia strike on crucial Defense Department telephone links at the Pentagon in suburban Arlington, Va, Key strike negotiations in New York cover 23,000 telephone installers on strike in some 40 states, The installers, employed by the Bell Subsidiary Western Electric Co,, traditionally lead the way In setting new contract patterns. The reported six per cent wage agreement would raised average installers' pay from $3,37 to about $3,87 by the third year, Tax Collections Up in State LITTLE ROCK (AP) - General revenue tax collections surged forward for the first time in 10 months in April with a $1.7 million increase over April 1967.

DYGARD Associated Press Writer INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (AP) ~ The names on the ballot are Branigin, Kennedy and McCarthy. But two other names—Nixon and Humphrey— are casting shadows over Indiana's Democratic presidential primary May 7. Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey publicly proclaimed himself a candidate too late to enter the primary. But less than two days later he was talking about Indiana Gov. Roger D. Branigin, who's running as a favorite son. Humphrey commented in a nationwide television interview: "If anything I can say will be helpful to him, I want to do that." Is Branigin a stand-in for Humphrey? Branigin and Humphrey say no, But the fact remains that Branigin alone is in a position to knock off Humphrey's two ma« Jor opponents for the riomina- tion- Sen, Robert F. Kennedy of New York, making his first bid in a major primary, and Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy of Minnesota, trying to keep the momentum of victories in New Hampshire and Wisconsin. Richard M. Nixon is all by himself on another ballot-the Republican presidential prima. ry- but he's got a fight on his hands holding Republicans' interest in his uacontested race and putting down the Republicans' temptation to record their votes in the white-hot Democratic battle. Both Branigin and McCarthy have openly courted Republican crossover votes. Technically a crossover i s illegal in Indiana. But, as a practical matter, the enforcement lies in the challenge at the polls, a/id the challenges have been minimal in the past. With write-in votes forbidden, Nixon faces no greater threat in Indiana than the possibility of a low vote total resulting from either crossovers or apathy. His backers figure the entry of New York Gov, Nelson A, Rockefeller as an announced candidate may serve to keep Republicans in their own primary, As for Nixon, he's aimed his campaign guns elsewhere so far, The former vice president's appearances In Indiana today and Friday wUll be the first since February, REPHAN'S 9th.
