A specially called meeting by city council wll be held at 7:30 Nov. 12 at city hall to discuss the various proposals of the local insurance agencies and to decide whether or not to participate this year in the employes insurance premiums. Obscene Matter To Head Talk Obscene literature will be displayed, with labels showing the local stores where it was purchased, at a discussion at 8 p.m. Tuesday at the City Hall. Sponsored by the Citizens Literature Council of West Palm Beach, the exhibition is open to the public. A filmstrip, "Target Smut," will be shown. It shows the recent developments in the war on pornography, the strategy for the future and how the public can help, according to Chairman Alton Murray, administrator of the Palm Beach County Juvenile Court. SOMETHING PER YARD NEHRU A TO IDLE IN V IA group established by the county school board's Professional Affairs Proposal (PAP) Is scheduled to be organized at a meeting of elected delegates scheduled for 1:30p.m. today. The board authorized establishment of the employe group after It withdrew its recognition of the Classroom Teachers Association (CTA) as the spokesman for its instructional employes. Noninstructionai employes, formerly not represented as a group before the board, also were invited to participate in a similar but separate committee. When elections of delegates was held last month, most noninstructionai employes participated in the balloting and selected a full slate of representatives. The teachers, however, boycotted the election, not even manning a full slate of candidates. With less than four per cent of the teachers voting, only 11 of the 15 seats on the instructional committee were filled. Today's meeting was called after the board Instructed school administrators to pro-coed with the organization, despite the apparent lack of interest. Stations To Close Larry Yates, acting director of the Palm Beach County Highway Safety Department, said Thursday that all five motor vehicle inspection stations will be closed Momlav. VERO BEACH The City Council debated the pro's and con's of an insurance proposal to the city at its meeting Wednesday night. Because of a recent increase of premiums by Blue Cross-Blue Shield coverage, many city employes felt they couldn't continue with the insurance. The city had entertained the idea that it might be feasible to take up part of the tab of insurance premiums if the rates were lower. Councilman Robert Allison, chairman of the Insurance Committee, recommended the city accept one of three insurance proposals he had received which would cost the city $11,792. The Blue Cross-Blue Shield coverage would cost $18,720, which amounts to $72 per year for each of 260 employes. Last year the city employes paid $3 per month per person, but with the increase it would be $6 per month. Councilman Jack Sturgis pointed out that the city has just approved a $200,000 wage increase for employes this year, which averages about $.rU0 increase per year to each employe. Sturgis suggested that the employes could afford to pay for the increased premium out of the raise in wages. Mayor J. Noble Richards agreed with Sturgis and said a precedent of paying for the employes insurance would become a fixed cost to the city year after year with the possibility of increases.
