U.S. Agent Says Firearms Registration Reaction Good Celery Crop Harvesting Begins Today In Glades A10 Palm Beach Post, Thursday, Nov. 7, 1968 Wallace Triumphs In Hendry County persons found to be in possession of such weapons, not registered according to law, could result in a criminal prosecution punishable by a fine up to $10,000 and imprisonment up to 10 years. By IZ NACHMAN Glades Bureau Chief BELLE GLADE The annual celery harvest, delayed by extremely wet weather, will get underway today with South Bay Growers, Inc., and the Sam N. Knight and Sons Farms slated to ship the first of the produce from the Lake Okeechobee area. There were reports of the celery being harvested by the A. Duda and Sons Cooperative Association in the Zellwood area Wednesday. None of the produce would be handled by the local operation. The South Bay operation will be located on the Billy Rogers farm, which is located about five miles from Lake Harbor, Just south of the Hendry County line.

Now lam j curious! he knew of one anti-tank weapon to be registered and some firearms had been registered prior to the new Gun Control Act. Although there is no charge for registration of the pieces, Adair said a previous transfer tax of $200 will still apply. This Is mainly to prevent the transfer of a destructive weapon Into the hands of criminals, he continued. Adair said although the new control act was merely an extension of the 1934 National Firearms Act, originating from the Al Capone days, it would give citizens and war veterans a chance to register weapons that have not been reported. He added, "The registration will be strictly amnesty. There will be no Investigation of such guns; just flat registering with no fee charged." Citizens have until Dec. 1 to register their "destructive" weapons with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax Division at Room 420, Pan American Building, P.O. Box 2281, West Palm Beach. Adair said after the expiration of the reglsteration period Public reaction to the registration of war trophy and racketeer type firearms was reported Wednesday by J. R. Adair, special investigator for the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax Division of the VS. Treasury Department, as "better than expected." Adair said the response was good but a great deal of confusion exists as to what constitutes a sawed-off shotgun or sawed-off rifle under the Gun Control Act of 1968. In issuing his statement, Adair said a sawed-off shotgun has a barrel length of less than 18 inches and sawed-off rifle has a barrel length of less than 16 inches. Since Saturday 43 weapons have been registered with Adair. However, he said that since the police and sheriff departments also have registration forms some weapons may have been listed with them. Although the act Includes such destructive devices as bazookas, sawed-off rifles, silencers, rockets, mortars, bombs, mines and grenades, items reported to Adair have only been machine guns, submachine guns and sawed-off shotguns. Of the items Adair said 35 were in the machine gun category and eight were sawed-off shotguns.
