' Palm Beach Post-Times, Sunday, Nov. 10, 196S-D17 'Vacuum Cleaner To Clear Litter To; NORTH PALM BEACH Residents here have a surprise In store for them In the form of a huge "vacuum cleaner," to be purchased In the near future for use by the village's Public Works Department. Village Manager Larry Rob-bins refers to the unit as a "commercial leaf and litter vacuum cleaner" and says that It will help save the city close to $5,000 during Its first year of operation. The unit which will be attached with a trailer hitch to the village trash truck, generates a suction of 12,500 cubic feet of air per minute, Robbins said. Currently, lawn clippings, leaves and other assorted light materials discarded by residents at the street are picked up by hand by the village garbage truck crews once a week. "The vacuum will enable our garbage crews to operate much more efficiently," Rob-bins said. In additltlon to the vacuum unit, the village will soon be advertising for bids on a "brush chipping" machine, which will also hook up to the village trash truck. Used In many municipalities, the brush chipper reduces the bulk of limbs and other unwieldy cuttings about seven times. "What we put In seven truckloads can be put In one truckload with the new brush chipper," Robbins noted. He also said that the village will be discontinuing its practice of dumping brush at the. county dump, which costs the village 25 cents per cubic yard.- "With the chipper we will provide a readymade mulch for a local nurseryman to use In his business," Robbins said. Of course, giving the chips to the nurseryman automatically reduces the amount of money paid to the county for dumping trash there. Robbins estimates that the total cost of the two self-con- talned units will be $5,500, and said the village will advertise for bids sometime this week. "We've tried both units," he noted, "and I'm sure they'll do the job that has to be done at a lower cost and with savings we couldn't realize any other way."

Mattress and G Box Spring, l Both Pieces RIVIERA BEACH - A group of enthusiastic children canvassed the Riviera Beach area recently to help save a young man's life and collected more than $200 toward that end. Under the direction of Veterans! of Foreign Wars Post 4143 and Its Auxiliary, the children collected $276.49 for the Edmund Woods Jr. Trust Fund. Ed, a 21-year-old who lives with his parents here, is suffering from a chronic kidney disease that Is sometimes fatal if not promptly treated. Treatment is this case will require a kidney transplant, and the cost of the operation Is expected to be $20,000. Through the generosity of individuals, businesses and clubs throughout Palm Beach County and elsewhere, more than $2,000 has been donated to help Ed's family defray the growing bills. Right now, Ed's two trips to Miami per week are costing almost $500, or over$1000amonth. Ed's 18-year-old brother, Chuck, has been tentatively selected to donate one of his kidneys to Ed. The operation has not yet been scheduled and Ed is currently receiving treatment and a special diet to regain his strength In preparation for the ordeal facing him. Donations may be made out to the Edmund Woods Jr. Trust Fund, c-o First Marine Bank and Trust Co., Riviera Beach.
