Staff Photo hy Lou Payne In Asking License Law Change Plans Unchanged ROCA RATON A survey tak-en by the City Licensing Dept. In regard to the new licensing ordinance will not affect plans nf the Merchants' Division of the Chamber of Commerce, to Feck amendment of the ordinance, according to Al Sterling. The survey poinls out that, as a result of the ordinance, approximately half Ihe city's mer-rhanls will have their rates lowered, 25 per cent will have theirs raised $25 and only 19 businesses will have considcr-nbly higher rates. "This report is no criterion for adopting anything we have in mind," said Sterling, who is heading the move to amend the new ordinance. Sterling, one of the 19, said, "I'm not mad at anyone. I just don't think that this ordinance was thoroughly examined by the commission before they passed it. I think it should be made more equitable." Commissioners are awaiting a written document from the merchant's division before taking any action on amending the ordinance. The merchants are to meet today at noon at the Ebb Tide Restaurant to draw up such a proposal. Members of the division have voted unanimously not to pay the tax until they could do something about the ordinance. They must pay a 25 per cent fine if they are delinquent after March 1. However, the licensing department reported Wednesday that they had received at least a dozen payments four from the 19 most affected by the ordinance.

I By WOODIE VAN VOOKHEES Taint Beach Tost Staff LAKE WORTH - "I guess I became emotionally attached to the bird because he was still warm and fluttering when I picked him up." The bird was a gannet, rare in this area, found on the Lan-tana beach by Mi's. Don Kip of 1614 Tropical Drive. He died not long after she found him. Now not only the bird's spirit pervades the Kip household, but also his beautiful downy, white, grey - beaked, web - footed body. For tlie Kips fell in love wilh the noble bird and had him stuffed. The gannet was first found last March by Palm Beach Po lice. Louis F. Gainey of the Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission identified the blue-eyed, blond-headed bird, which was soon released. The next day Mrs. Kip found it on Lantana's beach, exhausted. The bird was probably blown here from its habitat Bona-venture and Bird Rock in the Gulf of St. Lawrence and islets off the British Isles during last winter's severe Atlantic- storm. Although Mrs. Kip just got the bird back from Bobby Davis, Lake Worth taxidermist, she is already seriously considering selling it. The mother of four recently emerged from a three-month enforced stay in a local hospital. "I understand not many museums have ganncts," Mrs. Kip said. "I don't know exactly how to go about it, but I'll contact some to see if they want him." "Besides, there's another problem," she added. "To keep the bird in good condition, we'll have to keep him in a glass bell, which is another expense." But, she said, the space problem could have been worse. He could have been stuffed with Ms wings spread to his full six-foot span. Anyway, the Kips hope they'll eventually find a permanent home for the lost visitor from across the sea.
