Sorry, no mail or phone orders. By ELVIS LANE All-Florida News GAINESVILLE - U. S. Rep. Edward J. Gurney said Saturday he voted against the elementary secondary school bill "because there were strings attached to it." Gurney, GOP candidate for the U.S. Senate, said the bill resulted in "busing of children from one side of town to the other to attend school." He added that he favored federal aid to local school systems but "not when Washington insists on telling how the money is to be spe nt." Money spent on gasoline for "busing" should have gone to Increase teachers' salaries or to provide more classrooms, he 'told 75 young men and women at a breakfast sponsored by the Alpha Kappa Psi, a business fraternity. He also told his youthful audience that practically everything the Democrats had done at the national level for the past 3.) years had been a failure. The goal of the Democrats, he said, is bigger and bigger government "with Washington 89c VAL. PLANTERS DRY ROAST MIXED NUTS 8 oz. IT CHINCH BUGS?

LeRoy Collins confidently predicted he would win the election for the U.S. Senate Tuesday and then levelled another blast at his opponent. Congressman Ed Gurney, before leaving Saturday for a quick swing through the panhandle. Collins said the people of the state had come to know his opponent much better during the closing days of the campaign and that Gurney's record of absenteeism would be the difference In the election. He stayed to see the law school skits which lampooned the state politicians but did not stay to see the football game (between the University of Florida and Auburn University) as he took a plane for Panama City. He was met at the airport in Panama City by Sheriff M.J. (Doc) Daffin, and he held a brief press conference there. He then flew to Pensacola, where he held a meeting with about 100 supporters, then drove to Gulf Breeze for a Kl-wanis Club fish fry. About 500 people were in attendance. He left Pensacola to fly back to his home base at Tampa at 8 p.m. Saturday.

Next Tuesday, Gurney predicted, "there will be the greatest rejection In American political history." Hubert Humphrey, he said, will get only 10 per cent of the national vote. Gumey admitted, "I may have a hard time taking Alachua County." This county Is where Gainesville and the University of Florida are located. But young people, he Insisted, want a change In the national administration. Members of the business fraternity he was addressing, Gurney continued, are quite aware of today's inflation and Its cause. Gurney blamed Inflation on "uncontrolled government spending," and he said "a person now must earn $12,000 annually to buy what he could on a $750 (monthly) salary four years ago. The Winter Park Congressman, seated onv a few feet away Worn former Governor LeRoy Collins, his Democrat opponent, watched the annual University of Florida Law schools student skits lampooning American political figures. Later he attended the University of Florida-Auburn football game. manager, disputed claims by Gurney's camp that a lead was enjoyed by Gurney in Pinellas County Pettigrew said a poll by Irving Premack and Associates, formerly a Dade County polling concern which moved to Pinellas County, gave a breakdown of the Pinellas vote of 48 per cent for Collins, 38 per cent for Gurney and the remainder undecided. Gurney claims his poll, Barbara Nolan Market Research of Orlando, conducting spot checks of counties throughout the state, placed 60 per cent of the normally Republican-voting county In Gurney's column. Pettigrew predicted Collins could come out of Pinellas County with a 20,000 vote majority and, Hillsborough County, where Collins now lives In Tampa, would give him another 20,000-vote majority. Pettigrew clung to predictions that Dade County will vote 75 per cent for Collins, giving the former governor at least another 100,000 majority. Collins continued to play the basic theme of his campaign, apparently the one which he feels strikes a sympathetic note In the hearts of Florida voters. This Is Gurney's absenteeism, an attack which is aimed at triggering a conservative note In the minds of Floridians who work, whether In industry or on the farm, and who In their middle class environment normally associate hard if i 1.19 VAL.

Because of Collins' connection with the Johnson-Humphrey administration, north Florida down to the Ocala area has been considered a poor risk for a Collins voter turnout of any size. At first, the North Florida swing had been restricted to an airport touchdown, with a few handshakes for supporters and an attempt to give these workers a last minute shot of political adrenalin to carry them through the poll closing time Tuesday afternoon. However, North Florida Campaign Manager Ed Yar-brough, former Baker County sheriff and former director of the Florida Sheriff's Bureau before Its demise at the hands of the Florida Legislature, persuaded him to extend the north Florida trip to a few short speeches. Collins will rest up with his family at Tampa Sunday morning before a large picnic rally pieced together by the strong labor support which he enjoys In that area. Tampa is one of the strongest Industrial areas in the state and he has strong support from unions. Collins, himself, said the support from the labor unions "exceeded my expectations" in its enthusiasm. Tentative plans for Monday hinged upon his obtaining a Jet so he could fly to key areas of the state- for a quick, last-minute political appeal. He Is scheduled to spend Tuesday in the Tampa Bay area, where he will wait out the results of the election. 1.19 VAL. CEPACOL MOUTHWASH 14 oz. 98c VAL.

"The popular concept of efficiency now is crowding more students into a plant, asking each faculty member to teach longer hours, eliminating laboratory experience for students, requiring each student to wait for a book until other students are finished with it. "Such activities are appropriate to a factory not to higher education. Such efficiency may be appropriate to the production of things, but not to the development of that most fragile and puzzling of God's creations, the human mind. I? 1.45 VAL.

Office-holders and office seekers from all over the state, including U.S. Senators Spessard Holland and George Smathers, were among the crowd of more than 1,000 persons who roared with laughter over the all-in fun show put on by the law students. On a more serious note, State University Chancellor Robert Mautz predicted at a law fraternity breakfast that the state-supported universities will have 80,000 students on the various Campuses by 1971. "A rough estimate of the total expenditure of the University system for fiscal 1971 is $400 million, of which $200 million will be funded by taxes," he said.
