OCEAN BOULEVARD 1060 KANE CONCOURSE 258 PARK AVENUE, NORTH i ' w I BY REQUEST. A surprising number of local Gold Coas-lers have contacted us to request more information concerning a $75 million property transfer news item which we casually mentioned here Last week. (And how could we be casual about a $75 million deal? It's just the Palm Beach euphoria . . . ) We mistakenly assumed that most localites already had read an Associated Press wire report, which told of the return to Boca Raton investment tycoon J. Myer Schine of $75 million in theaters, hotels and assorted realty properties; properties which Schine had sold to the Realty Equities Corp., of New York nearly two years ago, but on which Realty Equities reportedly had defaulted on payments. We told of contacting Mr. Schine at his Boca Raton digs and obtaining from him confirmation of the fact that he once again owns the Boca Raton Sun and Surf Club grouns at Boca, and other extensive parcels of land along the Gold Coast. Additional factors which we didn't mention include the return to Schine Enterprises of a tract of oceanfront property on Ocean Ridge, just south of the Boynton Beach inlet; the return to the Schines of the Roney Plaza, McAllister and Gulf Stream hotels in Miami and Miami Beach; and the repossession of several sizeable strips of beachfront in northern Boca Raton city environs. AND WE CAN ADD a new bit of info to the foregoing: Chatting with Mr. Schine, this reporter now has the definite impression he might be willing to part with some of his Palm Beach County properties, piece-meal. But that's only our impression, y'understand. . .

Florida's only author to have a complete room at a university filled with his collection of notes and memorabilia. "Barefoot Mailman" author Ted Pratt apparently has another best seller on his hands, the "That was Palm Beach" booklet Continued To Page 21 PALM BEACH - New colleges of dentistry and veterinary medicine at the University of Florida will hopefully be ready for their initial classes by 1971 it was reported here Tuesday by Stephen C. O'Connell, the university's new president. The approaching session of the state legislature will be asked to provide planning funds as part of a $12 million request for state funds to obtain matching federal funds of $19 million for building the new schools, he said. The former state Supreme Court justice said both schools were urgently needed to help reduce drastic shortages of both dentists and veterinarians within the state. He pointed out that there are only 16 colleges of veterinary medicine in the United States today and that none of those are in Florida. "Our college will not only help reduce the shortage of some 500 veterinarians here, but it will also encourage the establishment of more horse and cattle breeding farms in the state." he added. O'Connell. a former resident of Palm Beach, was here for groundbreaking ceremonies of the university's initial building in the Palm Beach Graduate Engineering Center at 45th Street just east of Interstate 95. The school is temporarily located in the Bazaar Plaza in Riviera Beach. In discussing the outlook for the university at a press conference at Palm Beach Towers, O'Connell said the projected enrollment at the school in 1975 is 25.000. "There is little doubt that we will reach that figure before 1975," he said. "Our enrollment today is 19,848 and the Board of Regents has set the maximum number of students we can handle with our present facilities at 20,000." But while pointing out the university's need for expanded facilities, O'Connell warned against new facilities at the cost of quality education. "There is not now a school of higher education in Florida that can qualify for an excellent' grading," he said. The State University and the University of Florida are both approaching that desired level he added, but said, "We must all continue to improve our faculties to reach that point." He told of the universitiy's efforts to get an outstanding physicist on its faculty. "But the man we wanted demanded 200 hours of computer time for his own use and we just couldn't offer him that much time with our equipment. "It is the teacher that does research that keeps his students interested and produces quality education. Many of our state universities in this country have several times more computers than we have. "That's why I say we can't demand new facilities at the cost of quality education." O'Connell also warned that increased tuition was necessary because of rising costs in operating the university. "We are going to have to double our tuition," he sad "from $125 a quarter to $250."

Dr. Goodwin, professor emeritus of the College of Business Administration of the University of Florida, spoke before the Downtown Rotary Club Tuesday at the Marina Inn. He stressed that the university serves the whole state. The institution, he said, has home economics and agriculture research personnel in 66 of the 67 counties of the state. If offers courses in graduate engineering in five cities. Because of its off-campus courses it is drawing industries to the state. The university is one of the three outstanding universities of the United States, Dr. Goodwin said. In 1918, 50 years ago, the University of Florida had 470 students with a faculty of 41 and a budget of $200,000. Today it has approximately 20,000 students with a faculty of 2.000 and a budget of $80 million. "Only two other universities in the United States offer the range of subjects that we have to offer," Dr. Goodwin said. Phil O'Connell, a member, who is brother of the president of the university, Stephen C. O'Connell, introduced the speaker. THANKSGIVING DINNKK 12 Noon until All ore served . . .

Nationally, Marine Reserve units are conducting toy drives in over 200 cities in 45 states. Over five million toys are collected annually.

Dirkscn In Hospital LIVINGSTON'. N.J. i APi -Sen. Everett M. Dirksen. the Senate Minority Leader, was resting comfortably Tuesday after undergoing a series of undisclosed tests at St. Barnabas Medical Center. A hospital spokesman said the 72-year-old Illinois Republican entered the center Monday afternoon for a 'lew days lor a checkup." He declined to say why Dirksen. who is staying in a 70-a-day suite in the hospital's executive suite, decided to come to St. Barnabas. However, the hospital has the nation's largest hyperbaric high pressure oxygen chamber. This unit has been used in the treatment of lung disorders, particularly emphysema, from which Dirksen has long suffered. The spokesman would not comment on whether treatments in the chamber are scheduled. A nurse on his floor said the senator was "very friendly, but very tired." Dirksen has been plagued wilh disorders in the past. An inllamed retina in his ngh e. e temporarily forced him to retire from the House of Representatives. Then two years ago he was laid up for several months ith a fractured hip.

After a person gets his shot two weeks lapse before he becomes immune. The PMA said drug firms plan total production of about 17.5 million doses, far short of needs if all 30 million Americans who are over 65 or chronically ill asked for a shot. But Stewart said it was "probably about the right level" because many persons who need flu shots never ask for them. The government has no inoculation program but has urged doctors to limit the vaccine to elderly and chronically sick people. A Public Health Service official indicated the PHS is hoping drug firms will not sell their limited vaccine supplies to large corporations which traditionally buy big batches of flu vaccine so they can inoculate their employes and hold down work absenteeism.

Federal Highway (Midwaybotwotn downtown Boca WASHINGTON (UPI) A new flu to which "more people are susceptible" than usual may cause a "real epidemic" this winter, the U. S surgeon general said Tuesday. He asked doctors to reserve scarce vaccine for "high risk" patients who might die without it. "If this follows the usual pattern, we should have a few outbreaks from now through December and then in January have a real epidemic," Dr. William H. Stewart said in an interview. "It's very much like what one would expect with the flu that we get every year." Stewart said of the new strain, called A-2 Hong Kong 68, which was brought to the United States from the Far East. "People who get it feel miserable, and then in two or three or four days it's over, except you may have a kind of lassitude for a while. "The exception is the patient who is elderly or chronically ill." It is for this group, from which an estimated 60.000 died during the 1957 Asian flu epidemic, that drug makers are rushing production of a new vaccine.
