The previous record was set In 1964, when just under 71 million Americans cast ballots In the election which saw President Johnson rout his Republican opponent, Barry Gold-water. As It did four years ago, California is expected to cast the heaviest vote, an estimated 7,040,000, while New York Is expected to rank a close second with 7 million. Both totals would be lower than four years ago. According to an Associated Press survey of official registration records and estimates by elections officials, a total of 90,141,438 of the 121.5 million Americans of voting age are registered to vote. The actual turnout Is estimated at 72,987,-527, or 81 per cent. Some states do not require registration, so estimated vote totals were used. Other totals do not Include some latecomers. Besides California and New York, lower turnouts than 1964 are expected In Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Wallace Will Vote Democrat ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) -George C. Wallace said Saturday he will vote the straight Democratic ticket In Tuesday's election even though he Is running for president against the Democratic nominee, Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey. Despite his third party status elsewhere, Wallace is supported in Alabama by the presidential elector nominees of the regular Democratic party. Consequently, In order to vote for his own elector slate he must vote for the Democratic candidates. His own name will not appear on the ballot, only those of the electors. ELECT mmtunam , Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Washington, New Mexico, Michigan, Kentucky, Oregon, Wyoming and the District of Columbia. All other states expect larger turnouts, with the largest Increases turning up In Florida, 300,000; Ohio and Virginia, 200,000; and Mississippi, New Jersey and Maryland, 150,000. Many southern states have sharply Increased registrations due to the Influx of Negro voters since passage of the voting rights act of 1965. And In Utah, a 100,000-vote gain, some 25 per cent, Is expected because of a hot statewide fight over legalizing liquor by the drink. The survey showed also that, largely due to relaxed requirements and the large number of servicemen In Vietnam, requests for absentee ballots are at record levels in many places. Both parties have been wooing the estimated 2 million eligible military voters. Belles Says He Is Not Reporter Carl Belles, named Friday In a motion In a suit over the ownership of a weekly newspaper, The Reporter, Saturday denied that he was a reporter for The Reporter, as stated In the motion, or that he had said that Jerry Thomas, state senator, was buying the paper. Belles said that he is an advertising representative for the paper but not a reporter, and that he did not tell Riviera Beach Councilman and Mrs, George Bowe and Roy R. Burnsed that Thomas was going to buy the paper. The allegations regarding Belles were made In a motion filed Friday in Circuit Court to block Thomas from removing himself as co-defendant In a libel suit brought against The Reporter by another councilman, Mrs. Louise Klmmlst of Riviera Beach. GOP District 34 . n. m. Ad. Several years ago the editors and publisher of The Palm Beach Post-Times met to map plans for a special mail edition that would tell the story of the Palm Beaches and its surrounding area. This edition was to Include many facets: historical material, present day activity, growth record past and future, and stories and features about the cities and towns that make up this section of Florida. The first Fun'n'Sun Edition was successful and well received by Post-Times' readers. And, the Fun V Sun became an annual undertaking. Each year more was added for, Indeed, the story of the area changed. Population increased, urban areas expanded and more facilities were constructed. Nov. 10 is the publication date of the seventh annual Fun 'n' Sun Edition. This year's Fun 'n' Sun will be bigger and better than ever. It has to be. Our Palm Beach area Is bigger and better than ever. During the years the Fun 'n' Sun has become a showcase edition among special papers produced by the Florida daily press. It has won numerous awards and citations. The Fun 'n' Sun, In fact, has become the best known of all state mail editions. Each year the mailing lists grow. The Fun 'n' Sun Is literally mailed across the United States and around the world. The mailing lists include names In all 50 states and many, many countries around the globe. The Fun V Sun this year will be delivered to New Zealand, Sweden, England, Africa, Europe and even China. Readers of The Post-Times find mailing the Fun V Sun a fine way to send greetings to a relative or friend who lives in other parts of the nation or the world. It's natural that a resident of this area would be proud of living here. It's just as natural that he would want others to know about living In the sunshine. Many people who will receive the Fun 'n Sun may never visit us. But they will know a lot about us. The Fun V Sun contains the complete story. They will feel as though they have been able to make the trip. Others those who have been here but are now elsewhere will welcome reading about the places they have seen and the people that they met. Also, they will appreciate learning more about the Palm Beaches past, present and future. Producing a paper such as the Fun V Sun Is a gigantic undertaking. Planning begins months ahead of the actual publication. Post-Times senior editors met In early summer to start the seventh edition. Basic content was discussed. Ideas were submitted for new material. Long lists of photographic assignments were drawn up for staff photographers to handle during the weeks ahead. Story and feature assignments were produced for writers and bureau personnel. Again, many of these embryo stories also Involved photographic assignments and these were scheduled. Coordination for these assignments both on film and written fell to Post-Times City Editor Anita Spearman and Fun 'n' Sun Editor Mary Ann Hill. Nearly everyone on the news staff of the Post-Times became Involved In the project. Even reporters who normally worked only nights beats were Included In the project with assignments to areas they perhaps had not seen themselves in the sunshine. Deadlines were set and strictly adhered to. Extra sections were scheduled and each one was planned with its own deadline. Advertising for a section such as this Is important also. Many area advertisers wanted their message to "go. around the world" with the Fun 'n' Sun. This Involved special efforts on the part of advertising personnel and, layout experts. The same exacting system of deadlines used for stories and photos was also Invoked with ad material. The production department then became Involved with Fun 'n' Sun and their schedules coordinated to conform with other departments. Special full-color photos were assigned for cover pages of Fun 'n' Sun sections. Special color ads were produced. In a paper of this size even press scheduling had to be exacting. Fun 'n' Sun sections are being run off Post-Times' offset presses on a one-a-week schedule. All these advance sections will be Included with the regular Sunday Post-Times on Nov. 10. A full-color wrapper was designed and printed to wrap each copy of the Fun 'n' Sun which will be mailed. And key circulation department personnel were assigned to handle the growing mailing lists. Now its all nearly ready. Only the last few sections remain to be printed. And we think it was well worth all the extra effort. The seventh annual Fun'n'Sun will be the best one yet! You will think so too. The Post-Times will mall a copy of the Fun 'n' Sun anywhere In the continental U.S. for 35 cents. Multiple orders are at a reduced rate. Or we'll mail the Fun 'n' Sun anywhere In the free world for 50 cents. But don't wait too long. We Increased our press run again this year, but we could run short. Order your extra Fun V Sun copies now. CANADA Montreal 48 37 .23 Winnipeg 44 26 FLORID A TABLE Apalachicola 73 57 Clewlston ... 80 65 Davtona Beach 78 58 Ft.

Thuy said his government had accepted President Johnson's suggestion that the expanded talks should open In Paris Nov. 6. The first meeting, he said, would be concerned with procedural matters. He left no doubt that he expected the negotiation to continue for some time. There must be agreement on procedure and on an agenda before there can be any discussion of a cease-fire, he added. ."There will certainly not be just one or two meetings," he said with a smile. "We will meet again." He said the American and North Vietnamese delegations planned to meet Informally, probably Sunday, to make final arrangements for the date and time of the first four-party meeting. He fended off all questions concerning the substance of future peace negotiations, saying these were matters for the expanded conference.
