President Latham closed the discussion by saying, "The letter (of proposal) will be turned over to the town manager and the town engineer for their investigation and recommendation and then the council will consult the people."

Claude Kirk and the University scientists is available. "You are playing Russian roulette if you Increase the outtall In the Gulf Stream before the study Is completed," Jarrett said. Raymond J. Kunkel, chairman of the board of the Civic Association, advised caution and questioned whether the outfall system went far enough out into the Gulf. Robert T.

Brady of West Palm Beach took an hour's grilling at the meeting of the town council Tuesday on his letter proposing the construction of a sewage ocean outfall system across the Country Club property. No decision for or against the controversial proposal was delivered by the council. Robert M. Grace, chairman of the Palm Beach Civic Association planning committee, asked whether there would be enough money to Indemnify citizens for any damages that resulted from the system. Town Atty. E. L. Mlddleton assured Grace that "whatever defects would be repaired." Mayor Brady said that all odors would be removed. Answering a question concerning the disposal plant versus the outfall, Brady said, "We have the disposal plant now but in 10 to 20 years we will be back where we are now If we increase Its capacity now." Brady later said If nothing was done about the outfall, a sanitary hazard would result from dumping Into Lake Worth. The ability of the Gulf to dilute material and not affect the beach was "Infinite," he said. Jay Jarrett, executive secretary of the Federated Conservation Council, received applause when he suggested that action be delayed until results of a three-year study of outfall by Florida Atlantic 1x1 Sound like arithmetic lo you?

"We offer cooperation to the governor and Cabinet and will carefully study any proposals received from them, but we do not and will not abdicate our problems materialize is to set aside select areas in permanent preserves, forever off-limits to incompatible human activity," it said.

State Vote Canvass Hits Record TALLAHASSEE (UPI) - A record 2,187,805 Florida voters turned out last Tuesday to give Richard Nixon Florida's electoral votes by a margin of 210,010, the official state canvass showed Tuesday. Nixon compiled 886,804 votes, Democrat Hubert Humphrey 676,794 and independent George Wallace 624,207. But the biggest vote-getter was Republican Edward Gur-ney who became U.S. senator bv a thumping majority of 1,131,499 to 892,637 voters for Democrat LeRoy Collins. The canvass turned up no surprises, only confirming results gathered by news media election night. But the size of the vote was a surprise to about everyone except Mrs. Dorothy Gllsson, supervisor of state elections. Her pre-election forecast of 2,198,000 was off only 10,195. Other returns in the canvass showed that the basic Document In a package of three constitutional amendments to give the state a modern new constitution was 645,-2.13 for it to 518,910 against. An article on elections was approved 625,980 to 497,752 and one on local government won 625,347 to 508,962. In other statewide races, Jess Yarborough won a seat on the Public Service Commission by a vote of 844,267 to 791,-577 for Republican Ray Osborne. In races for Supreme Court justice, Joe Boyd of Miami beat Circuit Judge Richard Leavengood, Pinellas Republican, by a vote of 886,364 to 774,011; Circuit Judge James C.

McCain, Fort Pierce, 854,19(1 to 757,524; and Circuit Judge Vassar Calrton, Titusville, beat Justice Wade Hopping by a vote of 901,714 to 717,250. GUARANTY BUILDING TALLAHASSEE (UPI) The State Cabinet Tuesday approved the Interagency committee's report on establishment of 26 aquatic preserves but decided to postpone setting their exact boundaries until after public hearings are held and studies are made in the areas. The cabinet directed the staff of the Internal Improvement Fund to study the areas and propose specific boundaries in the area before setting the hearings. Although there were citizens who asked to speak against the proposed areas, Cabinet officials assured them they would have a chance to be heard before the areas were finally adopted. The Cabinet approved a resolution by Atty. Gen. Earl Eaircloth stating the "philosophy" of setting aside the areas and asked the staff to develop specific recommendations with respect to "management responsibility for each preserve." Faircloth said he presented the resolution to "get us moving" toward the ultimate aim of establishing the preserves. He added that the state might want to add other areas to the list at a later date. It was the second report submitted by the committee headed by Conservation Director Randolph Hodges. The first report made recommendations concerning the setting of bulkhead lines, but a controversy arose when the cabinet refused to Implement them In their entirety. Tuesday's report said conservation efforts have been instituted throughout the state but "Florida's coastal waters stand to suffer only continuing impairment of their unique natural qualities as time goes on. "One of the best ways to insure adequate overall protection for valuable coastal water areas before major Go Swisher Sweets-New Taste Sensation by KING EDWARD America'! Largest Selling Cigar responsibility to initiate programs which the 20th Century requires," Senate President John Mathews Jr., D-Jackson-ville, said in taking office as the second most powerful official in state government. A half hour later, his House counterpart. Speaker Fred Schultz, D-Jacksonville, challenged his colleagues to be "the true policy-making branch of government" and rise above the past when most of the ideas and active leadership emanated from the executive branch. To punctuate the new, active role of the legislature, Mathews and Schultz laid down at brief organization sessions a suggested program of legislation, and a challenge to try to keep down any major tax increases. TJiere was little of the fanfare of past legislatures present as the Senate got its organizing out of the way in less than three hours and the larger House took care of its business in about four hours. A few desks were dotted with bouquets of fall flowers and many of the wives and some attaches wore corsages and brightly-colored frocks. Children watched their fathers swom-in, Including the young son and daughter of President Pro Tempore Reub-In Askew, D-Pensacola, who drew loud applause when they held hands and ran to the front of the newly carpeted and painted Senate chamber. Superlatives were the order of the day as the lawmakers spoke of the challenges of a new Constitution and the monumental task ahead of completely reorganizing state government and keeping spending within Income. Sen. Richard Stone, D-Mi-ami, in a seconding speech, spoke of giving the people of Florida "a new lease on life" while Sen. Louis de la Parte, D-Tampa, predicted the 1969 legislature will write a record that will be indelibly Inscribed in the history of our state. "Because we have a new state Constitution, and because the entire legislative branch is undergoing a facelifting, we have arrived at an era of discovery of the formation of a new government," Mathews said. "This legislature will author Florida's Odyssey of the future." The biggest factor in making the legislature a stronger force In government Is the provision in the new Constitution for it to meet annually rather than once every two years. This permits annual budgets with the legislature around to ride herd on the government rather than having the Cabinet and governor supervise spending as a budget commission. Both Schultz and Mathews termed finances, education, governmental reorganization and crime as top problems facing the legislature when it comes back in April for the bill passing phase of its work. Neither promised there weld be no new taxes, but pledged to try to prevent any "major" tax increases. Mathews warned that every expenditure must be justified before a new appropriation Is made. Schultz proposed as part of his legislative program a constitutional amendment to give counties an additional bonding capacity of $500 million for classroom construction at no additional cost to the state. It would Include $225 million for counties with unusual school enrollment growth and $275 million for all counties with an equalizing formula that would give rich counties proportionately less than poor counties. Schultz also threw cold water on a proposed separate state department of urban affairs, suggesting that responsibility for coordinating state-local urban planning be placed under the state planning office. But he endorsed a proposed department of commerce to encompass activities of the present development commission, industrial commission and a new commission on human resources. President of the Council Edgar H. Latham Jr. at this point said, "We desire to cooperate with the City of West Palm Beach as much as possible. However, we need more Information. We will not make any decision today." Timothy Killen, director of the Civic Association, stressed that the needs of the Town of Palm Beach could not be compared to those of West Palm Beach, either now or In the future. He said that the Palm Beach population was about 7,000 and "We intend to control our population while that of West Palm Beach will rise to 70,000." He emphasized. H.
