Man Arrested In Theft of Bus ERIE (AP) A New York man headed to California on a Greyhound bus apparently grew impatient while waiting for it to leave the Erie terminal and stole an empty bus, driving it a halfmile before being apprehended.

Prison Inmates' Kids Get Gifts PHILADELPHIA (AP) This Christmas, Michael wants a teddy bear wearing a T- shirt that says "Daddy Loves You" on it a simple wish that Michael's father won't be able to deliver because he is in prison. But Michael is one of 50,000 children of inmates nationwide who may get one or two of their Christmas wishes granted this year through a program called Project Angel Tree. "It's bad enough not to have a father, but they need the expression of love," said Betty Sholly, of Vienna, who has taken it upon herself to see that 51 children get a little bit of Christmas. She is one of thousands of volunteers who contribute their time and money to Project Angel Tree. It begins with church leaders and parishioners who visit the prisoners, letting them know about the program.

Inmates then may recommend their children as recipients for the program by sending the children's names, ages and a person to contact to find out what they need most. Governor Seeks Casey Apology COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) Gov. Carroll Campbell has asked Pennsylvania Gov. Robert Casey to apologize to the people of South Carolina for remarks Casey made last week in a speech praising his state's workers.

Casey said his state has the nation's most productive workers, who deserve their $12- to $15-anhour salaries and in return outperform $5-an-hour workers in such states as South Carolina, which recently lured away a Mack Trucks plant from the Lehigh Valley. "Someone can go to South Carolina and pay workers $5.50 an hour and get $5.40 in productivity," Casey said. In a letter Casey dated Thursday, Campbell said the remark "is not only erroneous, but is an insult to my Campbell said South Carolina's average manufacturing wage is $8.14 and that the productivity of South Carolina workers is excellent. Casey's remarks came Dec. 4 when Pennsylvania's new commerce secretary was sworn in.

Cave-in Area Gets State HARRISBURG (AP) The state will provide $1 million for property acquisition in a Philadelphia neighborhood plagued by cave-ins.

(AP) A computer vandal, used Christmas greetings to give IBM officials a holiday headache, company spokesmen say. An illegal, computerized "Christmas card" sent IBM's electronic mail system jammed desktop computers Friday at plants across the United States, said Joseph Dahm. The message caused no permanent damage, but forced International Business Machines Corp. officials to turn off links between computer terminals for 45 to 90 minutes, Dahm said. Curious employees who read the message first saw an illustration of a Christmas tree with "Holiday Greetings" superimposed on it.

A caption advised, "Don't browse it, it's more fun to run it." Once the message was opened on a computer terminal, the machine generally, to refused to the carry "greeting" out a stop from unfolding on the screen, Dahm said. As a result, several people shut. off their terminals, losing reports or mail.

"One-seventy-seven," chanted British emcee Freddy Williams.

The crowd went wild. It was part of the drama of Friday's final game in the 1987 Lucky Lights International Challenge of Champions, which is to the game darts what the World Series is to baseball. The 300 spectators over three days at the Penta Hotel barely made up a crowd by New York standards, but the tournament was a major event for darters: darts players and fans. More than 200 professionals and amateurs from eight nations competed. Bristow, who took first place and $10,000 of the $50,000 purse, is one of darts' highest fliers.

Last year he earned about $300,000 in prize money and endorsem*nts. He throws darts signed with his "Crafty co*ckney" nickname and is a celebrity in his native Britain, where darts is second only to soccer as the favorite spectator sport of television viewers. On this side of the Atlantic, 100,000 darters play in the American Darts Organization's 289 affiliated groups nationwide. About a third are women. Because women contribute fewer entrance fees i in tournaments, their top prize Mary Derk Mrs.

Mary Derk, 213 Vine Browndale, died Friday at home an illness. She was the following, Philip Derk. Born in Forest City, daughter of the late John and Anna Zegbor Pitus, she was a member of St. Basil's Church, Simpson. Also surviving are a son, John, Elk Lake; a brother, Michael Pitus, Forest City; two grandchildren; nieces and nephews.

Tikhon's Cemetery. Viewing, Sunday, 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. Closing Foes Meet and Form A United Front (Continued from Page: 3) board has decided to retain Audubon and Prescott. PTAs, which fought to keep the elementary schools open, are now protesting the planned closing of East Scranton. In fact, a candelight vigil at school Friday, at the same time strategy session convened at the University of Scranton's Alumni House.

Wolkoff, an outspoken school board critic, led the call for a unified course of action, submitting a fivepoint proposal that called for a bugetary freeze, as well as development of a master plan by an independent agency. "The school board has evolved a modus operandi of lurching. They lurch from one crisis to the he said, at the same time urging those in attendance to avoid any strategy that involved "bashing" school board members. Instead, he recommended "calmly, quietly" laying out a comprehensive, reasonable approach to help the board deal with its budgetary problems. "Decisions have to be made that are absolutely vital to the City of Scranton," he said.

In addition to its school closings, the board must also decide on the controversial Tech-Central issue, he pointed out. The board is now considering closing the two city high schools and replacing them with a new, multimillion-dollar comprehensive high school. Wolkoff at first proposed that the district hire either the Pennsylvania Economy League or the Washington, D.C., consulting firm of Cresap, McCormick and Paget to develop the master plan. Both groups now are carrying out an in-depth study of city government operations under the auspices of Partnership '87, a government study group made up of local businessmen and civic leaders. Lynn Sansky, president of the Audubon PTA, noted, however, that Wolkoff already has proposed the PEL to the school board but the idea was rejected because the board considered the group too "conservative." Pisano then suggested that, rather than get involved in a debate over who will carry out the study, the groups recommend that an independent commission, like Partnership '87, be named to conduct a search for a mutually agreeable firm.

History Office Plans Closing for Holidays The Wyoming Historical and Geological Society museum, library, and administrative offices, 49 S. Franklin Wilkes-Barre, will be closed for the 1987 holiday season Dec. 24 through Dec. 28 and Dec. 31 through Jan.

4. Normal hours will resume Jan. 5. Normal operating hours are Tues- beday through Friday afternoons tween 12 and 4 and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The museum's holiday exhibit, "Holidays Past," will remain in place until Jan. 16. is half that of the men's. Terri Marcello, 32, who builds water pumps when she isn't throwing darts, won $5,000. This year there were purses totaling $1.5 million in tournaments around the country, in bowling alleys, bars, pizza parlors anywhere a proprietor offers to darters.

Players weigh up to 300 pounds, but the only motion is in the wrist. "Granted, you don't have to be like a football player, basketball player, tennis player" in terms of physical fitness, said Jay Tomlinson, a darts official and publisher of Bull's-Eye News. "To be a professional player and to win you do have to pay attention to your physical (well-being)," he added. "It's a hand-eye coordination skill and it takes practice to maintain that." But, true to the tale of its birth in the pubs of 16th-century England, a darts match hardly seems complete without beer. "I like a couple of beers," concurred the Crafty co*ckney.

"But it doesn't mean you have to have a couple of beers to play good darts." Tom Timlin, 29, a Philadelphia carpenter who made it into the top 64, agrees. "It really don't affect you unless you've been drinking, all day," the 300-pound explained. "Then, you can't see the board and it don't help at all."
