SINGLE ROLL, 36 FT. VALUES TO 2.49 Pre-Inmmed, Plastic Coated WALLPAPER By REX NEWMAN Tallahassee Bureau TALLAHASSEE (AFN) -Sen. Louis de la Parte, D-Tampa, is to be named chairman of the Senate Health, Welfare and Institutions Committee, it was reported Monday. be la Parte, starting his second term in the Senate after three terms in the House, will be one of 12 Senate committee chairman. Senate President John Mathews has lumped together three committees of past legislatures to put under De la Parte's chairmanship. One of De la Parte's major jobs in the next session will be a long look at the state's welfare system, which has not been tampered with since it was set up in 1937. It is understood that De la Parte favors what Welfare Director Emmett Roberts, formerly a representative from Palm Beach County, has recommended in an effort to centralize control of the welfare system in the state welfare board. Roberts has d.afted the 40-page welfare program which among others things renames Scrubbable Vinyl-Pre-trimmed Compare J 4 WALLTEX & SANITAS'lfot" sfe SCULPTURED $98 FLOCKS from U ,.

Because the PSC order "admitted the city would have jurisdiction over the bus company if we (the city) regulated the bus company," Evans contends the commission is wrong adding, "my position is we do regulate the bus company by our franchise ordinance." Evans said he does not believe the commission is empowered to tell the city how to enforce a municipal ordinance. The belief that local control is more effective and efficient, according to Evans, is at the basis of the challenge. He said he would not use in his argument the new transportation ordinance recently passed by the city regulating all bus companies in the city since the franchise order is directed to a particular company. A transcript of the proceedings of the July hearing along with a formal petition is included in the appeal. According to Evan's estimation, response to the filing would be within a month, depending on the court calendar. M usicians Set To Vote NEW YORK (AP) - The American Federation of Musicians has agreed to submit to a membership vote Wednesday a new contract offer that might end its 26-day strike against the three major TV-radio networks. A joint announcement, by the union and ABC, CBS and NCB, said the offer was made during the second day of mediation by Irwin Gerard, a commissioner of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service. Details of the offer were not made public pending the vote. Some 800 musicians struck the networks to back contract demands for wage increases totaling $103.08 weekly over a three-year period for 190 network staff musicians. Current staff musician pay is $257.72 per 20-hour week. The networks offered a $40-a-week increase spread over three years. Management has contended the union wants to keep un-needed musicians on the payroll. The union has denied this and said that the issue is money and job security. lo 1-way $5.60 $8 50 $31.55 $31.25 9" x 9" SIZE OUR LOW, LOW PRICE Gigantic stock of this beautiful floor tile!

In Saigon, the South Vietnamese government again protested to the International Control Commission that the North Vietnamese were continuing to infiltrate men and supplies into the South. It also lodged a complaint over enemy attacks on two Mekong Delta hamlets last Monday in which 38 persons were killed jnd57 wounded. it the State Department of Social Services. It also would strip the 12 welfare boards of administrative duty and centralize these duties in the State Welfare Board. Presently the State Welfare Board has limited authority over district welfare boards. However, it was reported that De la Parte thinks that Roberts' proposals should go farther in revamping the welfare structure of the state. Lumping the three committees of the past into one also indicates the thinking of Mathews and the Senate in reorganizing the executive branch of the state. The new Constitution dictates that the executive branch be organized into no more than 25 agencies. Presently there are over 160. Apparently, the health department, the welfare department and such institutions as mental hospital, tuberculosis hospitals, boy and girl detention homes and other state hospitals are being considered ,as subject matter for a single agency. It was reported that this is what Dela Parte favors. understand why anyone small a choice. Y C. Mall Beach Mall SAIGON (AP) - Two American jet planes were downed over North Vietnam Monday after coming under attack by Communist MIGs and surface-to-air missiles. The U.S. Command said in a terse announcement an unarmed reconnaissance aircraft and an armed fighter plane which often accompany reconnaissance sorties went down over the North in separate incidents. Details of the encounters were withheld while efforts got under way to rescue the crews. Headquarters said "suppressive fire," presumably bombing and strafing runs, was called in to cover their rescue. Hanoi radio announced earlier that an American reconnaissance plane was shot down and its pilot captured after he parachuted about 175 miles north of the demilitarized zone. A later 'broadcast said a U.S. F4 fighter-bomber was knocked from the skies after it showered antipersonnel pellet bombs over Bo Trach village, just north of the DMZ. Its pilot was captured, too, the broadcast s.nid. The two downings announced by the U.S. Command were the second and third manned aircraft shot down over the North since the Nov. 1 bombing halt. The first one. an Air Force Phantom reconnaissance jet, was brought down Saturday and its two-man crew listed as missing after an unsuccessful rescue effort. While bombing and shelling of North Vietnam has been stopped under President Johnson's orders to promote enlargement of the Paris peace talks, aerial scouting over the North has continued. North Vietnamese news media had previously reported the destruction of five pilot-less reconnaissance aircraft in what they called "more than 190 spy flight violations" of North Vietnam this month. The U.S. Command has maintained a policy of not commenting on reports of unmanned flights over the North. In the South. U.S. troops and air forces reported killing 155 North Vietnamese and Viet Cong soldiers in three clashes in the Mekong Delta and along the Cambodian border. About a mile from the Cambodian boundary, American troops from the 1st Air Cavalry Division ran into about 150 North Vietnamese troops at daybreak While the U.S. Rockslide Kills Two NATAL, B.C. (AP) - The bodies of an unidentified man and woman were recovered Monday from under tons of rock and mud following a rockslide on the Southern Trans-Canada highway near here. Rescuers feared other cars may have been trapped. Some 500,000 tons of rock and mud tailings from a coal mining operation cascaded from atop a ridge along a 1,000-yard stretch of the highway near the British Columbia-Alberta border at 11:30a.m. Sunday. Rescue crews labored through most of Sunday afternoon and into Monday morning before finding the first bodies. The unidentified couple was found in a late-model car bearing British Columbia license plates. Rescue operations had been hampered by fear that another section of the ridge may fall. A spokesman said a section which had been balancing precariously was blasted clear Monday morning and the search for other possible victims resumed. Palm Beach COVER YOUR TERRA ZZO!
