OK I just removed the index option from the line you
said to. Being new to apache I did not realize that
was affecting the complete file. I thought it was just
that one line. 
I thought the options in the individual directory
listing was the only control place. 

It appears to be working as needed now.

Thank you all to those who offered advice and help.
Now on to other configuration challenges. Like virtual
web sites etc. :{)
