D4 Palm Beach Post, Thursday, Nov. 7, 1968 .JfW I Do.a ttm U.S. WIATHM WMAU - USA Chris Robinson To Direct Play State GOP Legislators Expect Less Partisanship sanship," said senate minority leader C. W. (Bill) Young of Pinellas County. "We have gotten over the rough road of the first two-party legislature and the newness of a Republican governor." House GOP leader Don Reed of Palm Beach County agreed, adding "Our minority will be as strong or stronger than in 1967, but I don't think the partisanship will show." In Tuesday's election, Democrats hung on to majority control of both houses. And Republican senate strength dropped from 20 to at least 17 and probably 16, depending on the absentee ballot count in a cliffhanger contest between Flguro Stow Wh Tompirojtvrt hptcftid For Paytliw Thurodoy prime television shows, and lead roles in award-winning Hollywood movies, has taken for his first directing effort a comedy written by Norman Krasna. It had rave reviews when shown on Broadway. The play has some "electronic age" twists to Its love-wlthout-marrlage plot. It will be Interesting to note what hitherto serious actor Chris Robinson comes up with tn the way of comedy routine. As usual, The Playhouse will have a mixture of professional actors and drama students for cast. Heading the cast is Bob Re-galbuto as the boy who makes love wisely If not prudently with the girl, played by Paige Sosnoski. Stage setting is unusual for this effort. It shows two apartments at once. Robinson brought set designer and technical man John Garcia from Los Angeles to produce the backdrop for the action. The play will have a two-week run. It will be the first of ix planned for direction by -vobinson. Ualatorf PrlalttU Nor UUUmi - Contulr Ual Fortcait Lakes through Southern New England with snow in the Upper Lakes Northern New England. Snow flurries are forecast for the Central Rockies. SHOWERS FOR GULF - Showers are forecast today in the Pacific Northwest and from the Gulf area to the Middle Atlantic Coast States. Rain is predicted from the Great Weather Table DELRAY BEACH - Chris Robinson, home-town boy who made good as an actor, will have his abilities as a stage director demonstrated tomorrow at 8:30 p.m., with the opening of "Love in E Flat" at the Delray Beach Playhouse. Robinson, with more than 100 starring guest shots on Construction Is Vetoed MANGONIA PARK - A proposed construction of Man-gonla Development Co., which is developing Palm Beach Industrial Park, to connect 45th Street with State Road 710, was vetoed by the city council Tuesday night. Mrs. Ben Dunnam, deputy clerk, said the proposed construction was turned down because the project had not been approved by the county engineer. Also, another decisive factor, was a petition from 73 residents protesting the road on the town's west boundary. The council also hired Patrick Knisley as the town's second full-time policeman. Knisley will receive $95 weekly salary for the night shift. After a 90-day probationary period his salary will be raised to $107 a week. In other business the council announced bids for the town's proposed fire station lo be advertised in the near future. Current plans call for bid opening on Dec. 17 and construction to begin Jan. 15. Museum To Exhibit Colonel's Paintings STUART - Oil paintings by Col. John Davis Morgan will be exhibited at Elliott Museum on Hutchinson Island beginning Monday, the museum director said. - Mrs. Janet Hutchinson said Morgan's paintings are of scenes where his army career took him. She said Morgan began painting white stationed in the Philippines in 1905. youthful GOP Sen. Dennis O'Grady, Inverness, and former Sen. Welborn Daniel, Clermont, Democrat. With 4.956 absentees untalli-ed, Daniel led O'Grady 41,361 to 41,039. An absolute minimum of 17 votes is needed to sustain a veto, a control senate Republicans used repeatedly in 1967 to back Gov. Claude Kirk's legislative programs. Conversely, in the house, Republicans Increased their voting strength from 39 to 41 and a possible 42 with 40 needed to uphold a veto. Republican Earl Dixon, Jacksonville, ran 1,388 votes ahead of Democrat Roland Blalock with 8,600 absentees outstanding, but Duval Supervisor of Registration Harry Nearing said a sampling Indicated that the absentees were "running infavorof Dixon." Other close house races were decided in favor of Re-publicans with Reps. Charles E. Davis, Vero Beach, and William E. Powell, India-lantlc, and newcomer Richard J. Tillman, Cocoa Beach, and Tom Tobiassen, Pensacola, the winners. Tobiassen is Escambia County's first modern-day GOP legislator, but another northwest Florida Republican, Rep. L. S. Campbell, Defuniak Springs, lost out to Democrat J. G. Melvln, Fort Walton Beach. And while Democratic Rep. Henry Land, Tangerine, was defeated and the Democratic candidate to succeed Rep. James Beck of Palatka lost to Republican James A. Glisson, Eustls, former Democratic Rep. Bill Fulford made a comeback in Orlando, ousting GOP Rep. Robert Shadley. Senate Republican losers were Ralph Clayton, Deland, downed by former Rep. Fred . Karl, Daytona Beach, John Fisher, Jacksonville, who lost to Verle Pope, D-St. Augustine, and William Stockton, unseated by William Beaufort, Jacksonville. Democrats credited Gov. Kirk with costing the Republican senators their seats and senate president-to-be John Mathews Jr., D-Jacksonville, said senate Republicans would be "more Independent this time as a result of the governor's sagging popularity." Senate minority whip Tom Slade, only Republican senator reelected in Jacksonville, said Kirk was to blame, but Reed said the governor had "no Influence" on the out- TALLAHASSEE (UPI) Legislative Republicans, their power base apparently shifted from the senate to the house, predicted Tuesday that there will be "far less" political disharmony in the new state legislature. Heated CJOP-Democratic contests one in the house and one in the senate went down to the wire of absent ballot counting and won't be officially decided until today. But GOP leaders said it won't make any difference in the session that organizes here next Tuesday, then quits until its regular 1969 session in April. "Here will be far less parti Policemen's l.ANTANA An examination for new policemen to fill vacancies on the department will be held Nov. 22 at 7 p.m. at the town hall, clerk William Nyberg said Wednesday.

NITE St. Lucie Deputies Injured FORT PIERCE - Two St. Lucie County deputy sheriffs were badly injured early Wednesday nornlng when their car plowed down 608 feet of guard rail on North U.S. 1 north of the overpass in Indian River County. In Fort Pierce Memorial Hospital with what was feared to be a broken back and in "guarded" condition, was John Skeens, 29, of 119. Roselyn Ave., Fort Pierce. Also hospitalized and reported "satisfactory," was Thomas Edward Elmore, 28, driver of the 1967 sedan which was judged a total loss. Skeens had been just two years with the sheriff's department, and Elmore two and a half. The car was Elmore's personal vehicle, and the loss was estimated by Florida Highway Patrol Trooper M. D. Bozeman at $2,100. The trooper charged Elmore with excessive speed, and said that the car had failed to make the wide curve just north of the high overpass bridge, jumped the rail and landed bottom up. Elmore was able to get out of the wreck, but Skeens was pinned inside, and both were taken to hospital by ambulance. A sheriff's spokesman said neither man was on official duty.
