Palm Beach Post-Timei G3 Sunday, Xov. 3, 1968 Speed Up Urged For United Fund ft pi to k n TQ g7 mm i US. 1LJ- If Cardigans pFshik Slacks 'num. Zip Mck Shells i IUR CHOICE 1 MW . Slow reports and a lagging response to "mercy mailings" prompted initiation Saturday of "Operation Speed-Up" by the United Fund of Palm Beach County, according to John Greea, UFcampalgn chairman. Green urged division chairmen and other volunteers to update collection results and report them to UF headquarters at the Commerce Building. He urged citizens to mail In contributions or pledges now. More than 25,0(10 "mercy" letters were mailed by UF volunteers late in September to persons in the central, Boyn-ton Beach and Glades areas of the county. These appeals have met a slow response, Green said. " Collections and pledges so far are nearlng the $300,000 mark, boosted by late returns during the past week and the, results of "Give Day" Oct. 24, he reported. UF's 18 goal is $375,000. The Industry Division, with a quota of Sl-io.ono, Is almost on target, as are numerous smaller divisions, but other reports are lagging, especially in the Professional and Commercial Divisions, he said. These. last two divisions are key sections of the campaigns, according to Green. - "If these two divisions meet their quotas, another $50,000 could be added to the campaign total," he said, and added that he had confidence the quotas would be met. A concentrated effort by the Boynton Beach Division which also includes Ocean Ridge and Briny Breezes, Is being made to reach an $18,000 qutoa, it was reported. Kenneth Hall, division chairman, noted the drive in the Boynton area did not open until Oct. 9. He urged volunteers to accelerate calls, however, and issued an appeal for residents of that area to return donations or pledges in response to the "mercy mailing" of Oct. 2. The Belle Glade area drive did not open until this week, Green said, indicating it was too early to expect large returns there. Twenty-five community service agencies are now supported by ihe yearly United Fund campaign. The area covered by UF support in Palm Beach County extends from Boynton Beach to Jupiter, and west Into the Glades. A single-time donation or pledge each year provides essential services for the underprivileged, the needy, the handicapped and the youth of the area, Green emphasized. Many community-minded county residents help their less fortunate neighbors by pledging through payroll deductions at their jobs, he said. Others donate directly through the mailings and appeals conducted each year by UF volunteers. Agencies supported by UF are Boy Scouts, Crippled Children's Society, Catholic Welfare Bureau, Children's Home Society, Family Service Agency, Jewish Federation, Mental Health Association, Milk Fund, Opportunity Inc., Referral Board and Kindergarten, and Retarded Children's Association. Also, the Salavation Army of West Palm Beach and Lake Worth, United Health Fund, USO, two branches of the YMCA, Visiting Nurse Association, YWCA, Arthritis Foundation, Boynton Blood Bank, Boynton' Child Care Center, Boynton Home Nursing Service and the Florida Lion's Foundation for the Blind. i ft EACH i8 Wi it 1116' H v Priced for a Sellout!

(AP) There are 3,82-1,000 Floridi-ans old enough to vote in Tuesday's election, hut about 30 per cent of them are not qualified, the State Chamber of Commerce reported Saturday In Its weekly business review. There are several reasons more than a million Florldians can not vote. First, 156,000 aliens living in the state are ineligible. So are 29,000 persons in correctional and mental Institutions. A third group of inellgibles numbering about 528,000 include those who have not fulfilled residential requirements. How much this figure will be shaved by new and more lenient requirements for voting for president will only become apparent when the votes are-counted. These Ineligible groups leave a balance of approximately 3,111,000 who might vote If they have passed the last hurdle, registration. Close to 2.8 million had registered before books closed Oct. 5. Included In the number of Floridians old enough to vote are 369,000 who reached the required age 21 since the 1964 general election. Had the age limit been lowered to 18, some 315,000 more would have been within the voting age group.
