16 Pal m Beach Post . Wednesday . Nov. 20. 19G8 Publisher Says Newsprint Big Problem To Southern Costs Papers :$20-Million Recreation Bond Issue To Be Sold TALLAHASSEE il'PIi -The Cabinet, with two members dissenting. Tuesday set Dec. 10 for sale of a landmark $20-million bond issue to purchase public recreational lands throughout Florida. Secretary of State Tom Adams and Comptroller Fred Dickinson objected to selling the bonds until a firm list of priorities is established from among 25 outdoor recreational projects already singled out for this first bond-financed state recreational land acquisition program in Florida. They expressed a fear that Chronicle said a firm topic was recruitment of personnel. "The concensus was that it is still hard to find qualified people to work on a newspaper." he said. "I don't think salaries are so far out of line, but the young prospects so often have the glamor of Madison Avenue in their systems." Improved mechanical equipment and some experimental proj cs. such as a press that transfers printed words and pictures to the paper by use of magnits were discussed at the conferences. A third conference for papers with less than 15.000 circulation was headed by William Henry Harris of the West are the object of discrimination by Canadian paper mills because they have to pay $6 a ton more than newspapers in the northern United States and $21 a ton more than Canadian customers. MacKinnon said the problem of recruiting carrier boys was another serious one in big cities. He said in some areas of the cities, carriers are frequently beaten and robbed as they make collections. In a conference for publishers for newspapers with 15.000 to 50.000 circulation, chairman Carl A. Jones of the Johnson Citv Tenn. Press Nixon Stays In Bahamas' Sunshine MIAMI (UPI i - Presidentelect Richard M. Nixon spent his second day Tuesday soaking up sun in the Bahamas, rather than in Florida, but aides denied that Secret Service agents had become displeased with security arrangements on the mainland. "The arrangements nn Florida1 are good." said Ronald L. Ziegler. Nixon's press assistant. "Everyone is satis-lied with Key Biscayne." Nixon restricted his contact with the outside world to radio messages passed to and from his Key Biscayne headquarters, to the simple, two-bedroom stone house where he is staying on Grand Cay. Grand Cay is a small island owned by a businessman friend, Robert Abplanalp of Bronxville, N.Y. Ziegler. said in answer to questions at a daily news BOCA RATON (APi -Some big city newspapers in the South are spending as much as one-third of their production money for paper. Cyrus MacKinnon of the Lousi-ville Courier-Journal and Times said Tuesday. MacKinnon said newsprint pricing was a firm topic at a Southern Newspapers Publishers Association (SNPA) conference for papers with more than 50.000 circulation, of which he was chairman. While a smaller share of the cost goes for paper in smaller cities, the high price of newsprint was a matter of concern with all the publishers from 14 states at this 65th anniversary convention. Robert M. Hederman Jr. of the Jackson, Miss. Clarion-'.edger and Daily News, who completes a term as president of NPA Wednesday, issued a supplemental report on the project.

At one point. Dickinson accused Outdoor Recreation Director Ney Landrum of "very, very poor'' administration for failing to recommend a firm working priority list before pushing for sale of the bonds, validated last month by Circuit Court. Later, however, Dickinson said his charge resulted from a "misunderstanding" of Cabinet instructions to Landrum. The rush to sell the bonds before the first of the year is because they were authorized under the present Constitution and authority for them expires Jan. 7 when a new Constitution takes effect The 25 projects written into the bond resolution embrace about 50.CJ0 acres if kind and probably would cost a total of closp to $50 million. No price tag has been put on any of them, but Landrum said he thinks all can be obtained at the appraised value although some are being quoted at inflated prices now. Hesaidoneortwo, including Singer Island in Palm Beach County, are no longer available to the state. The largest need. Landrum said is probably in central Florida where the Disney-world project and general growth is taxing present outdoor facilities. He proposed that two central Florida projects be combined into a single project, identifying it as 9.150 acres on the Wekiva River and Black-water Creek in Lake County and the Wekiva Springs project in Orange County which includes another 6,350 acres containing the springs and frontage on Wekiva River and Rock Springs Run northeast of Apopka. He said revenues for the program in the next five years are expected to provide $5 million over and above the bond money.

'Teenagers Set Straight By Inmates' TALLAHASSEE (UPI) -Commissioner of Agriculture Doyle Conner said Tuesday a program in which prison inmates "tell it like it is" is having a profound effect on both teenagers and adults alike around the state. Conner, who heads the cabinet's Subcommittee on Corrections, said "Operation Teenager" was developed as a crime prevention program to show youngsters what a life outside the law is really like. "The leason Operation Teenager is so successful is that the inmates tell it like it is." he told the cabinet. "The youthful inmates are able to talk to the teenagers in their own language, and they are able to get across to them that crime doesn't pay." The lour inmates have spoken before 2.000 junior and senior high schools, religious groups and civic clubs since the program began in 1965. Some 500.000 persons have heard the inmates tell their story, he said. Conner presented quotes from teenagers around the state showing their reaction to the program. "1 am glad you are trying to help us from the mistakes you already made. 1 hope that you and your boy are all right and don't get into any more trouble." said a youth identified only as, Jim. "Your speeches taught men something, and I hope 1 never live a life like yours," wrote a girl named Jane. 1 Point. Miss.. Times .Leader.

Some of my Iriends have indicated they would like me to have the chairmanship, but nuthiny has been decided.' James said. Choice of a chairman and subsequent organization ol the eight- member group could pave the way for an early meeting between Palm Heach County (iovernment Study Sommission and the County School Board to discuss GSC recommendations lor school changes. The GSC was established by the state Legislature and charged with surveying the county school system, among other local agencies with a lew io improving perlormance and economy. Dr. A.
