OKKKUIOBEK Three 1-ycar-old inmates at the Florida School for Boys, who fled the institution Tuesday, were nabbed after another in a series of break ins at the Okee chobee (iolt and Country Club, which is located north of here on U.S. 441. Sheriff John VV. Collier said the trio, Steven Tyre, Newton Rumley and John Stephens, all IK, were found walking in the Potter grade, about a mile from the country club by William Davidson, club manager. Davidson told chief deputy Clifton l.ightsey that a female resident ol the area observed the three escapees walking away from the golf course. Kuch of the youths is reported to have picked up several items of sports clothing, plus cigarettes, foodstuffs and liquid refreshments in the country club. About the same time as the trio was located by Davidson, a party from the school who were looking for the escapees arrived on the scene. Chief deputy sheriff Clifton Lightsey said the youths are being held in detention at the school, as there is no room for the three in the overcrowded lockup, where there are 10 boys school runaways being held for trial in adult court. Lightsey said the trio will be arraigned before county-juvenile Judge G. E. Bryant Jr., after seven convicted prisoners are transported to the Raiford state prison the first of the week. levard, it is almost impossible for a pedestrian to cross. Nobody, Including the police, observe you if you try to cross on the crosswalk. Could the city put the signs and the cross walk about 25 feet further north or south of the present location? Hope we can get a real crosswalk or a light that could be turned on by the pedestrians would even be better. A. If the signs and cross walk are obscured so that they cannot be seen by traffic, they will be moved, Traffic Engineer Ronald Schutta said. His department crew will investigate the site. Schutta is familiar with the spot and said that most of the congestion is created by the store. Q. Is there any department in the city which handles emergencies such as heart attacks? A. Yes, the fire department but Chief James Sloan specified that his men can only answer bona fide emergencies which do not continually recur from one household. He said that many residents with chronic ailments do not supply their own equipment and lean heavily on the department to answer their repetitious calls. For the real emergency, the chief said, the crew uses a machine resuscitator or manual heart massage. Q. Why did the city parks department put muck under the playground equipment at Palmetto School? A. They didn't. Administrative Analyst John Sczymanski said it was a common misconception that the parks department maintained school lands. He referred the question to the schoolboard maintenance department. Quake Reported MOSCOW (UPI) A severe earthquake struck the Kolyma area of the eastern U.S.S.R.

Going west on Upland Road the 500 block attempting to make a left turn (south) on Georgia Avenue, you look for traffic and all you see Is a huge bushy oleander that absolutely blocks any view of traffic. It's on city-owned property. In order to make a left turn, you have to pull out in the middle of Georgia Avenue. This is a bush that must go. Will you refer it to the right department? A. City Traffic Engineer Ronald Schutta admits he Is in the "blind comer business" but the problem is best handled by the parks department to which he referred your problem so that "the hazard will be cleaned up."
