PETERSBURG (AP) Senate Republican Leader Bill Young said Thursday he still is very' definitely considering the race for governor In 1970 despite Gov. Claude Kirk's announcement that he will be seeking re-election. "I make my plans Independently of the governor, no matter who he might be," Young said. "I had always assumed he would run If the Constitution was approved." Within hours after Floridi-ans accepted the major revision which allows a governor to seek a second four-year term, Kirk told newsmen at Key Biscayne that he loved being governor and certainly would run again. rmmm I- ill I I to Mrs. Mary Arthur Starling, Albert F.

THE MONOPLY TALLAHASSEE UPI - House speaker-designate Fred Schultz predicted Thursday there would be "a radical change" away from the partisan warfare of the past when the 1 legislature meets in April. The Jacksonville Democrat, who was assured of the speakership when Democrats lost I jurors Deliberate On Sweet BARTOW ( UI'I I A Circuit Court jury of six men and six women began deliberating Thursday afternoon the fate of ex-bookie John J. Sweet, accused of first degree murder in the 19(6 slaying of Sebring citrus millionaire Charles Von Maxcy. The jury first must decide the guilt or innocence of Sweet. If a guilty verdict is returned, the jurors then must decide whether or not the death sentence should be invoked. A unanimous vote must be reached to find Sweet guilty. Only a simple majority is needed to recommend mercy it the guilty verdict' is handed down. The state accused Sweet of hiring two Boston assassins to come to Florida to Kill Maxcy, a close personal friend whose wile he was deeply involved with. The widow, Mrs. Irene Maxcy, was granted immunity by the state and testified she and Sweet had been romantically involved and thai she had paid him $.'i,000 to arrange for her husband's death. Sweet, testifying In his own behalf, denied all the accusations except that of being involved with Mrs. Maxcy. He testified he had continued to see her since the first trial and in fact had continued to see her at night during the current trial. He said he had done so "to show the world she was not afraid of me" as she had earlier testified. Maxcy was found shot and stabbed to death in his plush home near Sebring Oct. lti. Sweet, who served as a pallbearer at the funeral, was arrested several davs later.

Keller said the cleanup will begin Tuesday and he hopes it may be completed by Dec. 1. It will be continued, however, if there are any complaints made to Weaver's secretary. trial, commercial, residential or recreational purposes and until it is done or the legislature acts, the moratorium should remain in effect. "1 believe they (the members I will go along with it," he said. "This is a conservation minded committee." Stone said local government agencies had received recommendations of the interagency committee calling for setting of bulkhead lines at the shoreline except where a different line might be in the public interest. "To my knowledge, only the city of Cocoa Beach has responded and set a public hearing," he said. "This, in my books, is miserable failure on the part of local governments to live up to their responsibilities and therefore I am going to recommend the State Department of Conservation do the job of having local hearings, but setting it (the bulkhead line) at the state level," he said. Stone said he would also recommend full compensation be made to persons who have already purchased submerged land from the state if the lines when drawn up exclude his filling and developing that land. He said he would recommend owners be repaid both the purchase price and all of the taxes they had paid on it. "Otherwise, it is totally unfair to deny the man the use of Ihe land.he had bought," Stone said. He said he also will recommend the fresh water lakes and rivers of the state be placed under thv Randall Act in the same manner as salt water areas of the fate now are covered. tween the parties. "All members, Republican and Democrat, are coming over here to be members of a new and independent branch of government," Schultz said. Schultz, already moved Into the speaker's office vacated bv outgoing speaker Ralph Turlington, D-(;ainesville, spent most of the day conferring with other legislators and aides about appointments to committees. He said he would not announce anv of the appointments until the special organizational session next Tuesday when he is formally elected as speaker. The wealthy Jacksonville businessman, who already has pared down the number of standing committees from to 2X and plans wholesale meetings between the organizational session and the regular 60-day session next April, said the legislature will become a more important branch of government with the passage of the new constitution. Republicans apparently gained sufficient strength in the house to sustain a veto by COP Gov. Claude Kirk, but Schultz minimized the importance of the gain. "I think you'll see a tremendous change" in the party relationships, he said. "There will be practically no breakdown in party communications." Democrats and Republicans split along partisan lines dozens of times during the hectic 11167 regular and special sessions, mostly on Kirk's vetoes. Turlington also forecast less divisiveness, largely because legislature is much more experienced after the multiple sessions of the past two years. "Also, there is some division in the Republican Party over the governor," Turlington said. "The last time, they didn't know what they had now they do." Schultz said he expected to spend the rest of the week working out committee appointments. Newly elected legislators will begin arriving in Tallahassee this weekend for pre-session schools. New house committees include crime and law enforcement, public lands and parks, transportation, conservation and general legislation. For the first time in years, there is no house committee on apportionment. The legislative apportionment was settled by the federal courts ltist year and no more reapportionment will be needed until after the 1(170 census. Spina Cleared NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -Dominick Spina, Newark's tough and controversial police director, was cleared ol criminal charges Thursday that he deliberately failed to crack down on gambling. "I thank God for the American system of justice which permits the accused to have his day in court," Spina told newsmen after Superior Court Judge Samuel Larner dismissed two charges of criminal nonfeasance. THE EDDY ARNOLD BELLE GLADE The second attempt to rid the Glades area of abandoned and junked vehicles will begin here Tuesday, it was announced by Albert F. Keller, administrative assistant to the Palm Beach County engineer. Plans to begin the pickup of vehicles were discussed at a meeting in county commissioner E. W. Weaver's office Thursday with Sgt. David Day, who heads the sheriff's road patrol in the Glades; Charles M. Allen, inspector for the County Building and Zoning Department, Deputy Police Chief D. Bill Mat his and Mrs. Mary Arthur Starling, the commissioner's secretary, attending. Keller said vehicles will be picked up and disposed of by' the Municipal Salvage Corp., West Palm Beach, the concern that has a contract with the county to help in the cleanup campaign. When the program was first started about a year ago, Keller told the group, more than 32,(KK) abandoned and junked vehicles were taken off the rights-of-way and private property in the county. Any vehicle that does not have a license, or is parked in one place for five days or is not under cover on private property may be legally picked up by the county, Koi-ler stated. Persons having vehicles on their property, or who wish lo report abandoned cars and trucks, should contact Mrs. Starling at the Glades Office Building, 9Hi,-5!ll. A bill passed by the Florida Legislature in , House Bill 1X19, gives the authorities permission to remove the abandoned and inoperative vehicles, the group was told. The sheriff's department, along with city officials here, Pahokee and South Bay have been requested to cooperate in the cleanup drive. Before vehicles are moved and disposed of, Keller said, they will be marked with red paint on the windshields, or the body If the glass is missing, and they will not be touched for a live-day period. Forms giving the county permission lo move vehicles will be available at all of the cooperating agencies, Keller explained. Red cards bearing the Palm Beach County Engineering Department label may also be placed on the vehicles to be moved. The cards list three reasons for the county action: Inoperative on public right-of-way due to not bearing a Staff Photo by Iz Nachman IIS II I'I'LM(; AT THE STERLING LOUNGE the GUY and POPULAR DENNS TUES THRU SAT'S 775 N.
