"It is the first time In Florida that a state agency has become involved In these industries, which could put the state In real competition in both mediums with California and New York."

Adler said the "Mike Douglas Show" will definitely be televised from the Colonnades Beach Hotel for a number of weeks, beginning late in Janu ary. And the locally based company is attempting to air a new production called "The Palm Beach Story." If plans go through. It will star Gloria Swanson and Caesar Romero, Adler said. A day-time serial, "The Palm Beach Story" would be modeled on the order of a Florida "Peyton Place," according to Adler. The two stars would also become local residents, he said. "Under the Little Big Top," planned for filming in Sarasota, has received favorable appraisal by network executives, Adler commented, and will be a children's show. Adler also explained that a few employes had been given their two weeks' notice because of planned format changes in the show. Russell Stoneham director if night-time programs for Columbia Broadcasting System, whom Adler introduced, said networks and film Industries alike have determined Florida productions feasible and there is good reason for optimism concerning more shows and movies emanating in Florida. -- - i-l..J . .

Colgate Palmolive Co. has, in fact, renewed its sponsorship of the game show, which has remained on TV for one year, according to Adler. "Treasure Isle" will continue "in one form or another" either on ABC or another network, he said. This was confirmed by Leonard V. Koch, vice president in charge of television for Colgate's advertising agency, Norman, Craig & Kummel of New York City.

Helmet Edict By Judge Is Appealed A ruling by Palm Beach County Magistrate Court Judge Donald P. Kohl that Florida's helmet law is "unconstitutional" was appealed to the State Supreme Court Wednesday. Asst. County Solicitor David Bludworth, who argued the law in August when the judge made his decision, filed a brief appealing on two grounds. They are: The law requiring cyclists to wear helmets and its enforcement is a reasonable exercise of police power for their protection. The law is not vague, and helmet standards are in compliance with the Federal Highway Safety Standards Act of 1966. In ruling the law unconstitutional, Judge Kohl said it was "an infringement of the individual's freedom of choice." If permitted to stand, he said then police officers should be required to wear bullet proof vests and wives should be made to lock their homes when their husbands are away. Attorneys John Callaway and Joseph Valantiejus, who represented two law violators at the time, said the law was an infringement of Individual liberty and did not promote the general safety as it was supposed to do. They added there were no set helmet standards.
