He said that figure at his south Miami home was a "much better'" piece of art. The 365 members of the Sea-crest Class of '69 had worked hard and long to get the sculpture here. Although Seiler had donated his work of art. the logistics of moving the concre-te-and-steel figure were monumental. Arranging to have a Miami crane firm pick up the figure from Seder's backyard was a "real job." according to Ripley, who said that "the kids'" did all the work. The seniors were paying for all costs associated with moving the figure to its location on the northwest side of the Sea-hawks' football field. Senior Class President Ronald David and Judy Garnsey. of the class's gift committee, were witnesses to the fall of the figure Tuesday evening. Miss Garnsey burst into tears.

Yule Spirit Wins In End LAKE WORTH - All's well that ends well, but for a time Wednesday it appeared as though the good deed he had performed might turn on Roger Whitley and embarrass him. Whitley, of 8400 West Lake Drive, Lake Clarke Shores, who is general manager of Roger Dean Chevrolet, attended the police public auction in Lake Worth. Imbued with the holiday spirit, he bought 13 bikes auctioned off by Police Chief Tom Nagel at a cost of $230. Whitely immediatly turned the bikes over tsthe Salvation Army for distribution to needy children.

DELRAY BEACH - Sea-crest High School's huge football player sculpture is not to be scrapped after all. The 10-ton figure was pictured in Wednesday's Palm Beach Post as it crashed to the ground. Initial reaction of the sculptor, Don Seller of Miami, on Tuesday evening was that his 18-month work of art was a complete loss and beyond repair. Seacrest Principal Clifford Ripley announced to an emotion-packed "pep rally'' of students Wednesday afternoon prior to the Seacrest-Lake Worth football game that the proposed gift of the senior class to the school would be repaired. Ripley told a reporter Wednesday morning that the school was being flooded with telephone offers of aid in repairing the sculpture, following the front-page photos of the Class of "69 gift's fall.

Como contended he was intentionally deceived by Keene into thinking the home could be constructed for $150,000 and that the builder had failed to follow prescribed plans He said this resulted in unnecessary changes and additiional expenses. Palm Beach architect Ames Bennett, who drew the plans, testified that Keene directed the show with respect to work supervision. Bennett listed at least 20 items that needed correction during the 22-month period of construction, and said he could not be expected "to supervise by remote control." Bennett testified that at a "roughing-in party" he noticed the walls of one room had been constructed with concrete instead of tile as called for in the plans. "This could encourage cracking." he added. The architect also testified that a poor job by one of Keene's men resulted in repair to a seawall with thi added $3,340 cost paid for by Como. He said it is the practice in the trade for contractors to pay for their own mistakes. Keene said earlier: "The architect wrote the music and I played the tune." He denied any responsibility for holdups and said changes were constantly made by Perry's wife, Roselle. and Bennett. Keene said it was not his understanding the house was to be built for $150,000 as claimed bv Como. Telephone Rate Rise Approved TALLAHASSEE lUPI -Southern Bell Telephone Co. which serves about hall of Florida's population was granted a rate increase of almost $5.8 million Wednesday by the Florida Public Service Commission. But the commission warned the company to improve some service shortcomings or face the possibility of a punitive rate cut next July. The increased rates are mainly in special service, although residential customers will pay an extra 10 cents a month and business users will be assessed another 25 cents each month. The rate increase, granted on grounus oi increatJ costs resulting from higher Moral taxes, sharply rising labor costs and the problems of "explosive growth." was the second granted to a telephone company in two days. General Telephone Co. of Tampa was given a $4 3 million increase Tuesday, although it had requested a $7.5 million revenue hike Southern Bell, which serves residents throughout Florida's populous East Coast and in the western panhandle area, told the commission its authorized rate of return had dropped to 6 4 per cent because of a $6 6 million annual increase in federal income taxes, largely because of the 10 per cent surtax, and because of a new labor contract which cost an additional $9 million. The rate increases will bring the company's rate of return up to 6.84 per cent, the commission said. In addition to the increased monthly charge for telephone. Southern Bell was authorized to increase the service connection charges from $7 to $10 for residences and from $10 to $15 for businesses, increase charges for other service connections, inside moves and changes from $2 and $3 to $3.50 and $6, charge a monthly rate of $1 for non-published numbers and 50 cents for unlisted numbers, and raise the monthly rate for additional director listings from 30 cents to 40 cents. The rate increased will be effective when the company files a tariff schedule which is approved by the commission. By KEN GREEN Staff Writer A crowded court docket and scheduled television appearances ended initial testimony Wednesday at a Circuit Court hearing over the disputed purchase price of pop singer Perry Como's Tequesta home. The hearing may be resumed in two weeks, but could be delayed until early next year. Como said Wednesday, in the third day of testimony, that he has a television special in Los Angeles this Sunday and other appearances at later dates. Judge James R.

Amadeo Meitin said that Wednesday night's resolution will be twofold. "It will be a declaration that we need an MHA and also the establishment of same," he said. City Manager Robert Baldwin told Mrs. Kimmist and Councilmen Bobby Brooks and Kenneth Ackerman: "If we succeed in getting federal funds, our Phase 3 Capital Improvements Program will change considerably. The federal housing program could make it possible for us to use federal funds in many areas of street and drainage improvement that otherwise we might have to finance." Hearing Set On Drainage Requests STUART - A public hearing of the Rotonda Drainage District's request for a drainage permit originally set for Dec. 16 has been changed to Dec. 19 and to another location, Martin County Commission Chairman Timer Powers said Wednesday. Powers said the hearing by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers would be held at the Woman's Club building in Stuart beginning at 10 a m.

As Chairman of the exchange, Apelgren named an executive sub-committee for that group. He will serve as chairman. Members include Colbert, Crossman, Hogan and Rogers. The exchange voted to drop its per crate assessment from four cents to one-half cent when the advisory committee assessment reaches 3.5 cents Dec. 1. Apelgren estimated the operating budget for the exchange at $30,000. A report from a committee including Gen. J. C. Hutchison (US Army Ret.), Sanford; James Herring, Belle Glade; James Harry Wilkinson Jr., Pahokee, and Roy Segree, South Bay, was accepted. That group recommended continuing reports to the Florida crops and Livestock reporting service, which is a joint federal-state reporting organization By ROBERT K.OGLESBY Staff Writer RIVIERA BEACH - Official action on the creation of a minimum housing authority (MHA) is to be taken at next Wednesday night's regular council meeting, it was revealed late Wednesday afternoon An executive session of three members of the city council, the city manager, city attorney and other city officials decided to put the MHA resolution on next Wednesday night's agenda." Council Chairman Mrs. Louise Kimmist said: "We cannot do anything toward the establishment of low income housing until the housing authority is set up. We have waited long enough." Mayor Max O. Hammer said that he has received tentative acceptances from three persons among several that he has contacted about serving on the authority, should it be established. Riviera Beach may set up a MHA under Florida Statutes Chapter 421. However, selection of the particular low-income housing program to be initiated must come under the section of the federal housing act which was passed during the last session of Congress. City officials, up to this point seem to favor a "home ownership program" over a similar program which involves rentals. The home ownership plan, known as "Turnkey," allows low-income families to purchase homes financed through revenue bonds of the federal government. The bonds are guaranteed by the government and construction of the homes is by private contractors. However, Mayor Hammer indicated that there might be controversy over whether to build single-family homes or apartment-type complexes. "The people on the west side want houses, not apartments." the mayor said. "They have shown their objections to apartments many times." "I would also like to see something established for housing senior citizens, which this program can provide, if placed in the primary channel of trade must grade 85 per cent U.S. fancy or better.
