Stevens Brothers Funeral Home Is In charge of BAND OF SHOWERS - Showers and thundershowers are forecast today from the Great Lakes region southward into the Rio Grande Val crats for the general election next Tuesday. "They took this as a convenient time to release the money to us," said John Cashln, who was named executive director of the State Road Department by Gov. Claude Kirk, a Republican. "We knew all the time we were going to have this. We have had the mileage. There's no new money in this at all." The Department of Transportation, announcing funds for 50 states, said it has granted Florida $98.6 million in federal highway funds for the year starting next July 1, with $67.6 million earmarked for the interstate system. Cashin said this covers 1967-68 and, "We had the mileage for this last year. This Is old money." The executive director said that the state had already been allocated so many miles, and Congress then earmarked the amount of funds to cover these mileage allocations on a 50-50 matching fund basis. "This announcement would cover the 1967-68 mileage, which they already gave us," Cashln said. He said there had already been two cutbacks, or freezes, this year on federal highway funds and now It ap-oears things are opening up, with an election coming. The announcement from Washington apparently caught the State Road Department by surprise. Officials said they had received no prior word it was coming and the first notice they got was from news reports. "They could make this statement anytime, because this Is money they've allocated for road construction that everybody knew about in the first place," Bill Penrose, Road Department Information chief, said. "There's nothing new here, nothing new for any of the states. The only surprise Is the time they announced it." TALLAHASSEE (AP) The federal government announced Thursday It was granting Florida $98.6 million In highway funds and the move was promptly labeled "a bit of political hogwash" apparently timed by the Demo- Glades Death Is Probed BELLE GLADE City police are continuing their investigation Into the death of Mrs. Charlene Susan Betts, 18, of 200 NW 13th St., who died Thursday in Glades General Hospital.

Police Radio Jams Lake Worth TVs LAKE WORTH - Some members of the public have been getting more of the action, while watching cops and robbers television shows, than they bargained for.

Skies partly cloudy of si i IIP WITH m 60DB LIGHTWEIGHT Suit Hits Millage Statute TALLAHASSEE (AP) - A group of 34 taxpayers and students filed suit In federal court Thursday attacking the new statute which removes state financial support from counties levying more than 10 mills of property taxes for schools. The law suit action was prepared and underwritten by the Florida Education Association and the National Education Association, FEA Executive Secretary Phil Constans said in a news conference. He said the millage rollback law passed In the special school sessions one of the main reasons cited for the statewide teacher walkout "has been an ever-present concern since it was enacted." "But it's very complicated matter and it took a great deal of legal research to prepare the suit," he said. The FEA has claimed that counties lost $76 million in school funds because of the millage rollback. The State Department of Education has put the figure at $60 million to $66 million. The suit, filed In U.S. District Court In Tampa, claimed the rollback law is unconstitutional because it applies unequally to the various counties and therefore violates the citizens' guarantee to equal protection. The law limits each county's authority to tax Itself for schools based not on how many children there are, but on how rich the property In the county Is, the suit said. Students Plan Election Push BELLE GLADE A "get-out-the-vote" campaign will be launched here Tuesday by members of the "Young Doers of America" organization, headed by Buddy Wilder, a Belle Glade High School senior.

Latin Fund Aid Abuse Laid To U.S. BOCA RATON Up to 80 per cent of United State's aid to South American countries is pocketed by high-ranking U.S. government officials, charged Dr. Vahakn Dadrian, a soclol-gist on the faculty at Florida Atlantic University. Dr. Dadrian recently returned from a tour of 10 Latin American countries. Based on talks he said he had with businessmen and Industrialists In these countries, U.S. officials are aware of the abuse of foreign aid monies by some of our Latin American envoys, but look the other way because State Department policies are controlled by lightest factions, he claims.
