School Classroom Needs Pegged At $144 Million TALLAHASSEE (AP) -About $144 million needs to be spent to build classrooms for o o 7a ELECT "I know of no Democrats In the Senate who want to meet before next April," said Senate President-designate John E. Mathews Jr., Jacksonville, In a pre-election interview. What the governor wants most, apparently, Is more money for highways and for the state Law Enforcement Bureau which Is operating on a shoestring in its first year of life and wants to triple personnel. The governor Is telling friends that a special session In November when the lawmakers convene for a one-day "organization only" session will be called only if legislators ask for it. Few have. TALLAHASSEE (UPI) -The possibility of a special session of the Legislature this fall or early In 1969 hinges on the outcome of Tuesday's election of a new House and Senate. Gov. Claude Kirk, who badly wants the lawmakers to meet before the regular session next summer, reportedly will call one if Republicans are able to pick up the five seats needed to control the Senate. "1 need a Republican Legislature," the governor said in announcing he'd spent part of the week before the election In a "get-out-the vote" swing around the state. He might go ahead and convene the Legislature even if Democrats retain control of both houses, but t.e Democratic Legislature thinks it would be unwise.

(ft) Florida's school children, according to figures Just released by the State Department of Education. The figures show that 106,-622 students in the state were studying in overcrowded conditions at the end of the first month of this school year and about 100,500 were working in unsatisfactory facilities. There is currently a need for 6,730 new classrooms and, according to Marie Kohler of the state department's division of research, the problem Is expected to get worse. She said the current need does not include the new facilities that will be required If the Legislature Implements kin- dergarten programs statewide and upgrades facilities for exceptional child care, as it has pledged to do. The figures how that the state Is not even managing to build enough new classrooms .to keep up with the increase In student population, she said, let alone replace shabby structures or portables. Mrs. Kohler said 5,781 new classrooms were needed at the same time last year, almost 1,000 less than the shortage now. She said a total of 2,649 new classrooms are expected to be built in time for the next school year session. But this will leave a shortage of more than 4,000 classrooms, she said. Since each classroom costs about $36,000 to construct, she said, it will take about $144 m O o REP. Pol. Adv TAX ASSESSOR r Pd for by Oft indoptrtdont ttiitm Bova (or Nuon. Tuitdo, N-Y.
