8 Palm Beach Post, Wed., November 13, 1968 Conductor Retires Sirhan's Father Denies Plot Link VIENNA, Austria (AP) Karel Ancerl, chief conductor of the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra and frequent guest conductor abroad, has retired for health reasons, the Czechoslovak news agency CTK reported. Music circles In Vienna expressed surprise at the announcement. Proposed New Bus Law Passes First Reading however, that both Incidents might have been motivated by the "bad situation" In the Middle East. He said he also believed there wa no conspiracy involved in Kennedy's death. He expressed the belief his son had been motivated only by nationalism. TEL AVIV. Israel (AP) The father of the Jordanian accused of assassinating Robert F. Kennedy told newsmen Tuesday he is absolutely certain his son had no connection "with the three Yemeni Arabs accused of plotting to kill President-elect Richard M. Nixon. Bishara Sirhan claimed, right to select the streets (for bus travel l and bus stops." Second and final reading is expected Monday. The ordinance does not regulate fares and schedules. Also excluded is an antipollution clause which would make mandatory equipment a device or additive to modify diesel fumes. Although considered an important provision in the draft, reference to air pollution by diesel fumes was omitted because no standard has been set by the state, Brady said. As soon as the Florida Commission on Air and Water Pollution recommends a procedure on restricting pollution by vehicles, it will be incorporated into the ordinance, Brady said. 4 The mayor added that the ordinance is "an attempt to keep some of the authority the Public Service Commission attempted to deprive the city of." The state PSC ruled that it has jurisdiction over the West Palm Beach-based inter-city bus company. The city still contends it has exclusive jurisdiction and Intends to appeal the PSC decision to the state Supreme Court. An attempt to tighten the restrictions of the ordinance was turned aside. Commissioner Eugene Potter said "I'm almost reluctant to mention this but would it weaken the ordinance to upgrade the age limit (of the buses)?" By PATRICIA PRESTON Staff Writer The so-called "bus ordinance" was passed Tuesday at the first reading with little comment and no protest by, the West Palm Beach City Commission. Jon Moyle, attorney representing the Transit Co. of the Palm Beaches, was present in the audience but offered "no comment at this time." Mayor David H. Brady asked: "You mean you have no objections?" Moyle answered: "I didn't say that." the bus ordinance, City Manager William H. Tyre said, "is simply to bring the buses into the folds of the police powers of the city. In it, the city commission has the DIRECT FROM OUR PERMANENT BUYING OFFICE IN ANTWERP SUPERB DIAMOND VALUES Vi TO 2 CARAT DIAMONDS Our lowest prices ever for quality such as these sparkling beauties possess.

NO DOWN PAYMENT. TAKE MONTHS TO PAY w&iiS&w$Si-:v: . . EiMEiHEiHEH Steps Urged To Correct Hazardous Curve At Cove Asst. City Atty. James Vance replied: "This is getting into an area of unreasonable regulation, a bus is not comparable to a taxi cab." Potter suggested that such a restriction might come under health and welfare but Vance answered that buses are only required to meet safety restrictions. "I'm assuming that any bus company would try to maintain a reasonably respectable looking bus," Vance said. Tyre retorted: "Don't assume that." Mrs. T. Norley, chairman of the city transportation subcommittee, asked for "some rationalization of this four-year bit for jitneys and taxis when it is not used for buses." Brady replied that the construction and maintenance of buses are different from other vehicles. Jitneys and taxies are require to be models no more than four years old. Commissioner Fred 0. Eas-ley Jr. asked Moyle what Is the average age of the buses but Moyle said he is not familiar with that data. The ordinance stipulates: That the city commission designates certain streets and highways as bus routes; That the city commission establishes bus stops; The mandatory carrying of $50,000 worth of Insurance for property damage and $500,000 for personal injuries by each motor bus; That the city reserves the right to Inspect any bus and require withdrawal of any bus deemed unsafe; The mandatory publication by the company of any changes In routes, schedules and fares. Vance said that although the state controls inspection of the buses, the city is specifically empowered In the ordinance to Inspect the buses. In other action, the commission approved the recommendation of the library board to increase the nonresident fee for use of the library to five dollars per year and $2.50 for six months, with fees for children remaining at two dollars yearly. Young people need help in hitting the mark Spiritual perception to see the real purpose of life and moral strength to reach it this is the help they need. (One of the words for sin in the early Bible meant "to miss the mark.") Young people gain a more accurate aim in life through a better understanding of God and man.

The traffic signals should be installed by Friday, he said. Immediate corrective measures which Schutta mentioned included installing flashing lights to pronounce the curve in front of the city library. A permanent solution, Schutta said, would be straightening the curve. Schutta said the most likely method of curve correction would be to use the southern tip of submerged land at the city marina as fill. He said that the small corner is now being considered by the city as a park area In conjunction with the proposed $20-million development of the marina, according lo a 99-year lease now being drafted. Another physical correction of the road, he said, would be to narrow the media at the curve, although it might pose some problems because of the rough turn bay there." Schutta said he wouldn't venture to guess where the money is available to solve the curve problem, but "unless it's straightened out, I'm going to be hung by what's there." The Co e area project, four-laning and beautifying Flagler from the Flagler Memorial Bridge to the Royal Palm Way Bridge, is promoted by the city and is to be complete in December. The Sunday accident victims, identified as Mary Fortner Tucker, 33, of 361 S. County Road, Palm Beach and and Brian Edward Martin, 29, of England, were in a northbound auto Detective Lt. Edward Case, of the police department, reported. Authority to correct a dangerous curve in the cove area of Flagler Drive, which was the scene of two accidental deaths in automobiles Sunday, was asked in a resolution by the West Palm Beach City Transportation Committee. The committee, in a resolution to City Manager William H. Tyre, asked that City Traffic Engineer Ronald Schusta be given the authority to take any emergency measures to reduce the danger and work toward "straightening the curve out physically." The area, just south of 1st Street on Flagler, "has a rather sharp curve which is the way it was designed," Schutta said, "although it can be negotiated." Schutta said he believed the installation of two traffic lights on Flagler at Evernia and 1st streets would "help to slow down (the drivers) because they would be more ' ' Illustrations enlarged to show detail SHOP RICHARDS, 1st Floor PALM ItEACIlijALL SUMMYS ll'io-6 Ph. f)8.'-()() Congress lllvd. ul 1-95 Soviets Now Ready To Talk Arms Cuts O ff M I id uera Special Turchase 14 Kgift Qold aqd cDiamoqd barrings mux irstuwio for delay in implementing the talks. Malik introduced a resolution that would have the General Assembly refer back to Geneva Soviet proposals for disarmament, and also a complete record of all debate in the committee on disarmament. This would include any proposals by the United States and other members of the United Nations. The Geneva committee would be instructed to report back to next year's assembly on Its efforts to make progress on disarmament. Ain't it a grand and glorious feeling?

Nixon Known LONDON (AP)-Mass Observation Ltd. found that 57 per cent of 2,000 Britons questioned in a pre-election poll It conducted were able to identify Richard M. Nixon as a Republican presidential aspirant. Less than 61 per cent could identify Alexander Dubcek as the Czechoslovak Communist leader, but 75 per cent were aware of singer Julie UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) The Soviet Union declared Tuesday it was still willing to start talks immediately with the United States on nuclear missile disarmament, including antimissile weapons. But in a speech that opened the annual disarmament debate in the General Assembly's main political committee, Soviet Ambassador Jacob A. Malik appeared to have little hope for opening talks before President-elect Richard M.Nixon takes office. Malik proposed that the General Assembly toss a comprehensive disarmament package back to the 17-nation committee in Geneva, which may not reconvene until next February or March. The committee has been the main arena for detailed disarmament negotiations. Prior to the Soviet-led invasion of Czechoslovakia In August the United States and the Soviet Union had agreed to hold a mutual exchange of views on limitation and reduction of nuclear weapon delivery vehicles, both offensive and defensive, including antimissile weapons. There had been speculation that this might be taken up at a meeting between Soviet Premier Alexel N. Kosygin and President Johnson, but prospects vanished in the wake of the invasion. Malik dwelt only briefly on the matter in a midly worded speech to the political committee. He noted that U.S.-Soviet agreement had been reached to hold talks, and said his government "is now ready without delay to undertake a serious exchange of views on this question." He made no mention of Czechoslovakia, or any reason I, ' .. ' . . ..
