Peacoe opened the door to discover the room a mass of flames. After getting his family to safety, Peacoe notified the Westward Fire Department. Earnest White, assistant department chief, reported the interior of the house had been destroyed but could not offer an estimate of damages. Although no financial estimate to the damage was made, the loss was immeasurable to the Peacoe family. The family's clothing was destroyed. Today, the children were without shoes, according to the Rev. Joseph W. Price, pastor of the Pentecostal Holiness Church, Okeechobee Road. The only money the family had was in a wallet, which went up in flames along with everything else in the bedroom. Peacoe and his family took shelter in his father's home, a small three-room house already occupied by four A.G. OLEO i 29 59 Sliced 1 LB.

Plui Coffee Table $199 County Has No Boost In Hepatitis An increase in infectious hepatitis in some areas of Florida has been reported, but, according to Dr. C. L. Brumback, director of the Palm Beach County Health Department, there has been no upsurge here in recent months. Brumback attributes an increase in the number of cases over the last ten years to more accurate diagnosis and better recording. The State Board of Health reported two instances of the disease, which is primarily caused by unsanitary conditions and poor personal hygiene across the state. A high number of cases reported in Hillsborough County were attributable directly to eating of shellfish from a polluted section of the Little Manatee River. In Dade County, where a large number of cases were reported, 30 per cent were attributed to "serum" hepatitis, which is spread by infected hypodermic syringes and needles. "The teenage hippie group and drug users" made up a large portion of those afflicted in Dade County, health officials reported. So far this year there have been 904 cases reported across the state as compared to 566 in 1967. The health department in Palm Beach County recorded 41 eases this year as compared to 67 last year.
