V .3 ' LAKELAND (UPI) - The Florida Citrus Commission approved a special tax against orange growers Wednesday to provide funds to create a concentrate reserve to be used to develop secondary markets, primarily the school lunch programs. The tax and special marketing order are authorized under the 1967 orange stabilization act and will now be voted upon by growers and processors before it can go into effect. The vote will be conducted between Dec. 3 and Dec. 18, and, in order to pass, must gain approval of a majority of both growers and processors who represent a majority of the oranges grown and the concentrate packed. The special tax, which will be for a two-year period, is five cents per box on oranges used commercially. A 14-member committee, seven growers and seven processors, has been named to administer the program if it wins final approval. Grower membersof the committee are John F. Nelson, B. F. Wheeler Jr., Harry Heller, 0. R. Method, Robert Barben, Andrew Spada and Alfred Est-es. Processor members arc Ben Adams, James Bock, Austin Caruso, David Hamrick, Reid Jensen, Guy Gilliland, and Joe Washburn. Gov. Claude Kirk, in a letter read at Wednesday's meeting, endorsed the proposal and called it "a realistic, businesslike approach." U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Orville Freeman sent a telegram endorsing the measure, and promising USDA help to the industry. Under the plan, the administrative committee will use the special tax funds to buy up concentrate and then will use the product to open up the secondary markets through the stabilization of price and supply. In the past, the industry has participated in the school lunch programs during times of oversupply when the USDA purchased the surplus, but in years of undersupply the cost of the product went too high. It is hoped the use of the concentrate reserve plan will provide a supply of concentrate at a constant level, regardless of year-to-year changes in production and at a stable price. The board of director of Florida Citrus Mutual, a cooperative representing more than 15,.'.tX) growers, immediately gave its "enthusiastic endorsement" to the plan and promised to work for it Hook-up relays the aaswers hv city officials and departments heads to questions received at West Palm Heath City Hall or by letter, c-o this column at the Post-Times, over the past week This column is a regular lealure of the Thursday Post By PATRICIA PRESTON (J. I don't know exactly how to describe this but the other day I was driving along Sapo-dilla when two city men were (lagging down traffic and a garbage truck whi.ed by at a good speed across the intersection. The question is why was the truck going hack-wards across a heavily traveled street? It .Jim Mia Her had anything to say about it. the truck would not have hern going backwards. As it was. however, the drive shalt broke and. an air line broke, which rendered the truck hr.ikeless and goarlosv Shatter, with skill that is almost reaching legendary proportions in the public works department, suc-cesslullv steered the truck backwards downhill for more than two blocks at an estimated speed of :!." miles per hour with no damage to property or person The truck, alter crossing a sand lot which slowed the speed considerably, landed against a power pole, moved it a lew inches and was finally at rest.

After police had completed checks of area banks, all agencies reported that there had been no bank robbery and that everything appeared normal. A second call to police, when investigated, turned out to be a laundry delivering linen to one bank at a time different from the usual delivery hours and at the wrong doors.

Bickerton said Shatters talent of being able to steer such a straight course at a g iod clip backwards is aided bv his route. 25 percent of which he spends hacking in and out of alleys.

It's the same property and every time I go into to pay my taxes, it's the same old question with no answer. A A simple answer, former City Tax Collector William Keelesaid traced back to the fact that two different men are working on your bills. There's a county tax assessor and a city tax assessor and a county tax bill and a city tax bill. There has been much talk of merging the two offices, and this might be the slorv the next couple of years. At least it will prevent confusion from the citizen. This one to 8 00 P.M. - Daily and Sunday . i S. Dixie, W.P.B $139 BUFFET DINNER fy-y T. in the Palm Beach, Florida yit'ALYmM RESTAURANT question is probably the most asked and answered by the city tax collecting department which is now under Finance Director John D'Ippolito because ol the recent transfer of Keete (mm that of lice to the post of assistant auditorium manaeer Q. Why aren't there street numbers on street markers on South Dixie? There are no numbers on buildings either. It is very difficult to try and find a certain number when driving. A. The traffic engineering crew is working on the problem right now. Traffic Engineer Ronald Schutta reported. The men have already tried putting vertical black lettering on the pole but Schutta said it does not have enough reflecting value. They are now experimenting with white numbers on a green background. .Numbers are not put on the horizontal sign lor two reasons; not enough room and it defeats the purpose of having interchangeable signs Numbers on buildings are issued by the building department along with building permits. Before final inspection by the city, a prominent display of building numbers is required What happens alter inspection is speculation but it is the responsibility of the owner to maintain building numbers. Q. Why is there a "no parking" sig n on the north side of Southern Boulevard between Washington Road and Flagler Drive? The owner of that apartment building does not provide parking spaces for his guests' visitors. That space is off the highway and causes no inconvenience to traffic. A. Unfortunately the building was constructed before an amendment in the code which req uir es on e-a nd-a -ha 1 1 pa rki n g spaces per unit. The building meets the former specifications ol one pace per unit. Traffic Engineer Ronald Schutta said the parking in the grassed area before the building was banned because motorists were parking "in a haphazard manner" and interfering with the sale and efficient use of the road. The cars were creating traffic "blinds" by obstructing view. Schutta noted that there is ample parking across the street. Q. How did it happen that the entrance into the first municipal parking lot on North Olive Avenue is so dangerous? There must be a million places where it would be safer. Is the citv thinking about this? A It happened because it was designed that way nine years ago and the nearest thing to an explanation is that thought was the entrance should be on the busiest thor-oughlare Thoughts are no longer along those lines, but city officials do not have to assume responsibility or recall for events which occurred before their time. Today, there is strong proposal lor relocating the entrance to either Second Street or Narcissus and closing oil the Olive access. It is a matter which will probably be given consideration the next budget year Mayor David II. llradv noted the Olive entrance and its "W-degree turn" which olten blocks traffic How. Q. Motorists who travel South Flagler Drive are in for a big surprize when they reach the end of the line a series of loops with nowhere to go hut hack. Whv not a sign indicating I'.S. 1? Someone could get lost in that Gregory Road maze. A T rallie Engineer Ronald Schutta is now investigating a sign which will be compatible with a residential area and still let the motorist know that the (h ive ends at the canal. He hesitates to use a I'.S. 1 directional sign to an intersection with a traffic light. Probably the best sign, to be placed before Gregory Road, is a dead end sign, but it all depends on what sign will best blend in with the neighborhood delectables to choose from: more zesty appetizers, more huge platters of chilled meats and fowl, more sea food delicacies, more exciting casserole surprises, more salads, more tasty aspics, condiments and relishes.
