Frank Says He Will Not Fight Firing The former president of John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital, Maurice B. Frank, said Friday he would continue as a director but will not take any legal action seeking to prevent his ouster. Frank was removed as president of the hospital Wednesday in a surprise manuever of eight members of the 12-mem-ber board of directors in a special meeting without being given any reason for the action, he said. Calling the action "undemocratic procedure," Frank commented, in a statement issued through his attorney, Frances T. Ryan, that, "In the same spirit in which I have always worked for the improvement of the hospital, I have decided I will not further involve it over the presidency of the board. "I will continue to serve as a director and pursue my du'ies in that capacity as I see them, and I hope the hospital will continue to operate successfui-:y in the future." Frank's removal was taken in the best interests of the hospital," according to John R. Day, a board member and 'ts attorney. Board Member Richard E. Small was named to succeed Frank at the brief Wednesday meeting. Frank is the former owner of the Holiday Inn in Palm Beach and recently purchased the George Washington Hotel In downtown West Palm Beach. The hotel has been renamed Marina Inn.

Our predictions of Richard Nixon being elected President and Ed (lurney winning . the V. S. Senate post came , true but our forecast of 25 . Rep l-'icans and eight Democrats winning in Palm Beach County was a Utile off. As it turned out, the GOP scored 21 victories and the Democrats 12 in the county. George Wallace's campaign was the biggest disap-' pointmenl in both the state and county. Our final poll , showed he would receive only 21) per cent of the county vote '. and all the Wallace followers thought we were crazy. But' the final figures showed the ex-Alabama Governor grab-bing only 19 per cent of this vole. Ruth Thonuis, Nixon's county chairman, told us she thought Wallace would be so strong that Nixon might only win this county by 8,000 votes. It turned out thai Dick Nixon finished some 2B.IMM) votes ahead of Hubert Humphrey, who ran second here. Gov. Kirk proved lo be a very accurate forecaster. He . laimed Nixon would carry he slate by l.' votes and . hat's just .iboul his margin til victory. Speaking ol Gov. ; Kirk, now that the new constitution has passed, the chief executive is likely to appoint our own "Skip" lialalis to the newly created position of Lieutenant Governor it the selection is lelt up lo the iov-einor. Many people thought Batalis or GOP minority leader Don Reed would have run a belter race against Cong. Paul Rogers than Bob Rust did. However, we dis-agree. This column feels no Republican could defeat the extremely popular Rogers in ' this nine county district and that includes not "illy Reed and lialalis bul also even GOV. KIRK or Rl( HARD NIXON. Rust battled Rogers almost on even terms in the 8 other counties but Palm Iieach County let him down. ! The 1 4 - year Congi cssma n won this county by a majority of 22.010 votes and the entile district by 2,'!.2IO. So you can. readily see this election was jiisl about decided in Palm Heat h County. We think the biggest sur-' prise in the county was the di'leal of K. K. Van Kessel by ', Hob Culpepper. We understand the county commission ' chairman spent mine than S12.000 while Culpepper's' campaign cost less than S . . .George Warren is slaled to become the next chairman of the county com mission . . .

And speaking of Jack Horner, the Democrats need lo reorganize badly in this county and they could do no better than getting the con serva live-minded Homer to call the shots for all of them. Jack did a wonderful job in Iti0 when he was the county chairman lor the successful campaign ol Gov. Karris Bryant. He has twice directed Friday to victories against insurmountable odds in his last two races. And eve-ry time he ran for the county school board, Horner trounced his opposilion.
