Palm Beach Post, Wed., November 6, 1968 S3 Lifeboat Candidates On Canvassing Board Raise Interest Conflict Concern Area Treasure Hunters To Seek Spanish Fleet agreed it was an "unusual situation,' but advised that there Is nothing In the state election law calling for disqualification of a canvasser on the basis that he Is a candidate. Despite Jones' interpretation Van Kessel, anticipating the possibility of having to call a special meeting today to name someone to replace him on the canvassing board, decided to disqualify himself. The board then voted to have The first curtain went up when Supervisor of Elections Horace E. Beasley addressed the board saying that he was "concerned," about possible "criticism" since all three members of the canvassing board County Commissioner E. F. Van Kessel, senior County Court Judge Paul Douglas, and Beasley himself were candidates in Tuesday's election. County Atty. Bruce Jones the artifacts located off Jupiter are to be delivered to the state. Other members of the group besides Mrs. DuBois, Nip and Lyon are Lawrence Dugan of Jupiter, Michale Pell of North Miami Beach, Ray Manieri, head diver from Fort Lauderdale, Leo Cestaria of Boca Raton. Les Behrens, Eldon Wil-kins and Leo Duzenberry, all of Fort Lauderdale. Nip said that the magnetometer search will be conducted with two boats, 20 and 25 feet. After the location of any salvageable materials a 90-foot converted air-sea rescue ship will be used for recover- Cash Find Results In 2 Drue Arrests Vice-Chairman George Warren take Van Kessel's place. Beasley said that he too would disqualify himself If he were so advised by the state attorney general's office. Beasley said he expected to get an opinion from that office later in the day. Part two of the canvassing board matter came later in the morning when Gilbert Bro-phy. Town of Lantana attorney and the contender for Douglas's seat on the county bench appeared before the commission to voice his opposition to Douglas's membership on the canvassing committee because of a "conflict of interests." "Judge Douglas has declined to disqualify himself," Brophy told the commission. Brophy added that "I am not attacking the honesty of Judge Douglas, but we have a difference of opinion on the discretion of a judge." Jones then reiterated his comments that should Douglas ask to be relieved, It would then be up to the county commission chairman to name a member of the board of county commissioners to take his place on the canvassing board. Judge Douglas declined to comment on either Brophy's remarks or on whether or not he would disqualify himself from the canvassing committee which Is supposed to begin Its work today at 10 a.m. Should Beasley and Douglas both ask to be relieved, County Commissioners E. D. Gaynor and Edward Bandlow would be automatically named to fill the posts since they are the only other two commissioners left on the board who are not involved In the election. Action taken by the commission Tuesday included: Approval of the installation of a traffic signal approaching the Torry Island Bridge in Belle Glade, with the provision that the City of Belle Glade will be responsible for maintenance of the signal once it is Installed. Authorization for County Engineer William Hill to inform the County School Board that there are more requests for sidewalk construction than there are funds available in the county budget for them. Hill will request the school board to set up priorities. Instructed County Administrator Jack Dean to study bills submitted to the county by Universal Ambulance Inc. of Lake Worth and to recommend payment of onjy those for which the county could be held responsible. Approved the appointment of Russell Anderson to the Palm Beach County Library Board. there are several ships out there," Nip said, "but it will be a real job uncovering the remains." Nip and other Fort Lauderdale men recently completed an expedition in the Florida Keys, where thev uncovered the Spanish "Plate" Fleet and obtained more than 3,000 artifacts for the state. The "Plate" Fleet met Its fate during a hurricane in the Keys in 1733, Nip said. According to the agreement with the state, 75 per cent of the coins found by the team will remain with the group. The other 25 per cent will go to the state for preservation. In addition, 100 per cent of All Doctors HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) - A year of federal service for all new doctors wherever they are needed, whether it be In the armed forces or city slums, has been recommended to members of the Association of American Medical Colleges. The recommendation came Monday from the association's committee on physicians for deprived areas at the close of the association's meetings here. The committee also recommended Increasing the number of doctors by half and the number of allied health workers even more. Other recommendations included a national medical care program which could be an expansior of the U.S. Public Health Services medical care program to Indians, to Include all Impoverished areas; and establishment of training programs for health personnel particularly utilizing persons from Impoverished areas to act as health aides or health guides.

A discussion regarding who will serve on the county election canvassing committee took up much of Tuesday's session, and in it came two acts. Teachers Push Rocky Un session NEW YORK (AP) - Albert Shanker, president of the striking United Federation of Teachers, told a meeting of 900 chapter chairmen Tuesday afternoon he Intended to press (iov. Nelson A. Rockefeller to call a special session of the state legislature to deal with the city's school crisis. Rockefeller, Mayor John V. Lindsay and the state education commissioner, James E. Allen Jr., have all gone on record as opposing a special session. Shanker's call for a special session first came Monday after six hours of talks between union and state and city officials failed to end the teachers strike. Shanker said after the talks broke up that he saw "no chance for a settlement by local agreement." A joint statement by state and city officials at the talks opposed a special session, saying legislative action could not solve "far-reaching educational principles." Since the fall term opened Sept. 9 three strikes have closed most of New York City's public schools and kept the vast majority of the city's 1.1 million pupils out of class for all but 11 days out of almost eight school weeks. The strikes stemmed from the ouster by the experimental local governing board of Ocean Hill, a predominantly Negro and Puerto Rlcan district, of a group of white union teachers, now numbering about 80.

MAfjMfll and hkorrhextra Search Expanded NEW YORK (AP) Aircraft and an additional Coast Guard cutter joined the search Tuesday for lifeboats carrying crewmen from the Norwegian tanker Etnefjell, which was drifting powerless In the North Atlantic. A Coast Guard spokesman said that the cutter Half Moon was ordered to join the Abse-con, which Is standing by the stricken vessel 360 miles southeast of Cape Farewell, Greenland. He said the Half Moon should reach the scene Wednesday morning. Two Coast Guard aircraft and one from the Royal Canadian Air Force were already participating in the search, he said. Only three of the Etnefjell's 33 crewmen have been seen thus far. They were standing on the deck of the charred tanker holding a sign reading: "Numbers of crew in lifeboats." But no lifeboats were seen in the water, although two were missing from the ship. There has been little other communication with the stricken vessel because the fire on board Sunday apparently burned out its radio. Crewmen from the Absecon have been trying unsuccessfully to board the tanker since they arrived nearby Monday, but high winds and 20-foot seas have prevented them from doing so. At one point rescue parties got close enough to hear the three Etnefjell crewmen shouting for food, but none could be sent to them. The Coast Guard said the three appeared to be In good condition. In Oslo, the owners of the Etnefjell said they feared the situation was much worse than early news reports had indicated. The Olsen Et Ugels-tad shipping Co. said It was ominous that life boats were missing from the ship and that only three crewmen had been sighted. The tanker's flashing SOS signal light was firs: seen Sunday by the Polish fish-factory ship Uran, which radioed for help and stood by until the Absecon arrived. An explosion and fire had badly damaged the tanker's after section, but the fire was extinguished. The cause of the explosion was unknown. The Etnefjell was bound from Frederikstad, Norway, toBotwood.Nfld. Artillery Fire Error Kills 1 FAIRBANKS (AP) An artillery shell that dropped short of Its target killed one man and injured three others during a firing exercise at Ft. Wainwrlght Monday. Pvt. Ronnie Ray was wounded critically, and 2nd Lt. Norman Atkins and Pfc. Rodney Jordan were wounded less seriously. The name of the dead soldier was withheld pending notification of next-of-kin . The Wainwrlght public Information office said the soldiers, all observers assigned to the 6th Battalion, 9th Infantry, were taking part In a live fire exercise in the maneuver area near Radio Hill slope when the shell dropped among them. The Army began an investigation. Mao's Malady ROME (AP) A wave of Asian flu Italian doctors call it "Mao's malady" has bedded an estimated 200,000 Romans, medical authorities reported. They said the virus came from the Orient, crossed the United States and has entered Europe, bringing headaches, sore throats and muscular pain. Big r PIG INTERESTING By ROBERT K. OGLES BY Staff Writer JUPITER Mrs. John Du-Bois, member of an archaeological team In South Florida, was jubilant Tuesday when she learned that the group had received approval from the state to proceed with an expedition to recover artifacts from the Spanish 'Terra Fir-ma" Fleet, believed to have been wrecked near here In 1622. "We made our original application to the Internal Improvement Fund over two years ago," Mrs. DuBois told the Post. "Since that time we have merged with another group located in Fort Lauderdale which also made application for search rights in the same area." The area in question Is the ocean floor off the beach south of Jupiter Inlet. Coins believed to be from the period during Philip V's reign in Spain In the early 1600's have been found along the beach and a great deal of research has led to the conclusion that the "Terra Firma" Fleet did run aground here In the 1600's. Lawrence Nip of Fort Lauderdale said Tuesday that the group of private Individuals expects to begin search operations with a magnetometer within the next "week to 10 days." "We are very excited," Nip said, "since if this operation is successful, it will be the earliest such find to date in Florida." Nip, who will be heading the actual work of the search mission, said that the historical significance of the fleet Is unquestioned. "This was among the finest of the fleets the Spanish ever sailed," he said. The historian of the group Is Eugene Lyon of Vero Beach, a former instructor at Indian River Junior College. Lyon is currently working for his doctorate in early Spanish history In Spain, Nip said. Nip stated that If metallic objects are charted by the magnetometers, then the very difficult work of probing the deep sand will begin.

UuOTra h When she started to tidy up a vacated room in a Riviera Beach motel Tuesday and found a cardbox containing more than $7,700 in cash, a cleaning woman set off a chain of events which led to the arrests of a Miami husband and wife on five counts, according to sheriff's deputy Frank Messersmith. Shortly after noon, Palm Beach County Sheriff William R. Heidtman received a confidential telephone call tipping him off to an "unusual" situation which had arisen at the White Caps Motel, 3501 Broadway, Riviera Beach. The sheriff assigned the investigation to three members of the department's intelligence unit headed by Sheriff's Det. Robert Di Sivlno. When they arrived at the motel, the investigators learned that a cleaning woman, in tidying up a room which had just been vacated, had found a carton containing $7,700 in bills of various denominations. A second container held what the officers said was a small amount of marijuana. Coinciding with the arrival of the deputies the couple who had vacated the room in which the cash was found returned and pleaded with the motel clerk on duty for the return of the money. Arrested on a charge of violating the narcotics law were Randy Edwards Rosenson, 34, and his wife, Margaret J. Rosenson, 25, who gave their address as 1102 N. River Drive, Miami. Under Florida state law, which permits such action on a narcotics charge, the sheriff's department confiscated the couple's house trailer and 19 Mark III Continental, in which they were traveling with their 4-year-old daughter. Both vehicles carried Alabama tags. The Rosensons were booked into Palm Beach County jail after the investigators had uncovered, in various containers cached "all over" the trailer, LSD tablets, STP (the "most potent form" of LSD) tablets, and LSD "blue barrels." An additional supply of marijua- Open 1:30 . 60' i 2 I jANErONO "THE NIGH COMMISSIONER" Rod Taylor Christopher Plummer I" Christian Scienct Monitor i 1 1 1 1 1 1 na was cached in the base of what turned out to be a "phony" battery, according to Messersmith. Also discovered were supplies of barbiturates (depressants) and amphetamines (stimulants). The investigators, until they complete their assignment, said they will be unable to place a cash value on the large assortment of narcotics taken in the haul. While making the search for narcotics, the investigators uncovered a pornographic film. Both of the Rosensons were charged with two narcotics violations, two violations of the drug abuse law and one possession of pornographic material count. Late Tuesday afternoon they were freedon $6,500 bond each. The sheriff's department Investigation is continuing. Left-Hand Paradise LONDON (AP) Never ulnd that business of the customer always being right. Opening in London is a shop where the customer is always left. William Gruby, a printer and book salesman, says he'll be in business a week from now selling things for lefthanders. The shop being prepared is on Shaftesbury Avenue Just off Piccadilly Circus, a street prone to flashy men's clothes, ladies of the evening, theaters and pot smokers. The sales people hired for the shop all are left-handed. They will be offering left-handed scissors, can-openers, kitchen sinks, potato peelers, egg beaters, artists' palettes, electric irons, record players, surgeons' knives and saucepans. One out of every 12 persons in Britain is lefthanded. So, Gruby thinks he has a market even though he himself is right-handed. As for the left-handers, he commented: "I felt they were let down by the mass manufacturers. I got in touch with many of the manufacturers and most of them agreed to try out left-handed designs. Now I have been able to get out a catalogue of left-handed Instruments." ORSON WELLES OLIVER REED CAROL WHITE HARRY ANDREWS MISS A SUMMER VACATION?
