8 Palm Beach Post-Times, Saturday, Nov. 2, 1968 State Looking To Share In Gatorade Bonanza U.S. Sets Prices On Cane New Military Hardware Shown To Army Group V WASHINGTON REPORT oped Gatorade on his own time. O'Connell said he did not agree with the assumption that some of the Regents policy on patents and discoveries had been broken. Ferguson noted that the Resents had not taken notice of the situation until recent weeks when news reports raised questions about the situation. He said he was appointing-the investigating committee because it was the board's responsibility to find out all the facts and take appropriate action to protect the rights of all involved. Ferguson named Julius Parker of Tallahassee chairman of the committee which will work with Ashler and the board staff. He also appointed board members Henry Kramer of Jacksonville and Dr. Louis Murray of Orlando and told the committee to take any sworn statements necessary "so this can be cleared up to the satisfaction of all based on the facts as they occurred." Into the body much faster than water. University officials said earlier that the drink was developed In a project at least partially financed bv a federal grant but Ashler said there was some question whether Cade did the research on his own time. He noted, however, that the discovery had been reported to the federal government agency which provided the grant and that Cade had tried to get the university Interested in Inquiring patent rights to the product in 1967. Regents Chairman Chester Ferguson instructed the committee to find out If Gatorade was developed as part of a federal research project. If It was, he said, the federal government retains all rights. However, Ferguson said all state rights will be enforced If the committee determines that the state does have any rights. Ferguson told newsmen in the audience that Information still was Incomplete but that all documents connected with the investigation would be made available at the appropriate time. "In the meantime, I hope you will refrain from expressing any opinion or pointing any fingers," he said. Stephen O'Connell, president of the University of Florida, who recently filed a report on the Gatorade situation to the Regents, said he had never heard any discussion of the possibility that Cade devel You have to wonder, however, if the national economy pump priming by government contracts to defense Industry will ever get down to sensible levels. The suspicion grows that industry has come to rely too much on defense contracts and has built In all kinds of pressures to keep any President and his Administration from reducing the load below, say, $65 billion a year. People still talk about President Eisenhower's warning to beware the military-industrial complex. But nobody does anything much to control it. If a survey of Washington, D.C.'s Negro ghetto is any indication, Federally sponsored anti-poverty programs are getting to middle-income ghetto residents but not the lowest income people. U.S. Sen. Winston Prouty, R-Vt., ranking Republican on the Senate D.C. committee had a Negro staff conduct a survey and they found that most (66 per cents never heard of the GAINESVILLE (AP) - A special Investigating committee was created by the State Board of Regents Friday to see If the state can share In profits from the Gatorade bonanza. Regents Vice Chancellor Phil Ashler also said the board has notified Dr. James Robert Cade, discoverer of the formula, and Stokeley-VanCamp, the Indianapolis firm that bought the rights, that the state will assert any rights it has. Ashler had been trying to prepare a full report on the situation for the monthly board meeting but said the facts developed so far were not sufficient. He said the situation was far more complex than he had anticipated. Cade, director of renal kidney medicine at the University's J. Hillls Miller Health Center, has estimated that a private corporation he heads will receive royalties of $25,000 to $2.5 million per year from sale of the drink. Gatorade, promoted for use by football teams and recently offered for retail sale, has Interesting possibilities because of claims that it is assimilated Clean-Up Drive Slated In Indiantown INDIAN TOWN A cleanup campaign gets under way today In Booker Park near here, and a 15-man committee composed of residents of the community Is to remove about 24 junk cars.

Equipment from Martin County mosquito control department under the direction of Lester Sherer will help in moving the old vehicles. Vehicles from 1st and 2nd Streets will be moved to the county dump on West Farm Road. By DALE PL'LLEN Washington Bureau WASHINGTON - The military-industrial complex, often criticized by President Elsenhower in the 1950s, was on display here the past week. At the Sheraton-Park Hotel the Association of the U.S. Army was convening and the industrialists pulled out all the stops to put their hardware on display hardware they either have sold to Uncle Sam or want to sell to Uncle Sam. On hand to give the sales pitch at various big industry "booths" were not only smooth talking men but leggy, mini-skirted girls. Colonels and generals moved from display to another, featuring guns, planes, laser ieams. The U.S. Army, of course, helped the industrialist; "set up the displays and cranked out plenty of puff material about the convention. The war and death items on display Included sophisticated, electronically-guided gadgets of all description. The costs for items was staggering. One incendiary shell devised by one company and not yet sold to the Army costs $15. It is not hard to see how the nation spends $80 billion a year on defense with the war in Vietnam gobbing up at least $.10 billion. A rapid firing weapon spitting out $15 shells can eat up a $100,000 in no time. ECT Pd REP. Pol. Adv. TAX ASSESSOR (A) f r DON K. CREAMER Named Director Of SCAMA Don K.

VOTE FOR ROBERT C. WASHINGTON (AP) - The Agriculture Department announced Friday the level ot prices It has determined under law as "fair and reasonable" for 1968 crops of sugar beets and Florida sugar cane. Processor-producers who buy sugar cane and sugar beets from other growers must pay at least that price to qualify for federal payments under the Sugar Act. Under a formula, sugar cane growers this year will receive a basic price of $1.12 a ton for each one cent a pound of the season's average price for raw sugar. Thus If the season's average raw sugar price Is 10 cents a pound the basic rate for sugar cane would be $11.20 a ton. The 1967 rate was $1.09 a ton, which resulted In an average price of $10.02 for a ton of sugar cane. In addition, producers cooperating in the government program last year received Sugar Act payments of about $1.01 a ton for their cane, the department said. Sugar beet prices for 1968 were announced at "not less" than those provided In this year's contracts between producers and processors, thus guaranteeing a slight Increase over the 1967 average payment of $13.20 a ton, the department said. In addition, sugar beet producers last year received Sugar Act payments averaging $2.30 a ton.
