Phosphate is valued at $10 a ton which means that shipments for 1962 added up to $10 million. There were indications that shipments for the remainder of 1963 might average 100,000 tons a month at a value of a million dollars a month. Used mainly as a fertilizer, phosphate is exported from Boca Grande to countries all over the world, and ships come here from just about every country of any size. Florida supplies 70 per cent of the world's phosphate from its Bartow mine fields and experts say deposits should last another! 250 years at the present rate of production. Valuable Facilities The Seaboard values its facilities at Boca Grande at $4 million. Ceylon's Female Leader facing Trouble at Home Ruler Criticized For Being Overly Friendly With China COLOMBO, Ceylon IB Prime Minister Sirimavo Bandaranaike seems to have lost ground at home while she was delving into international politics. Mrs. Bandaranaike called the Colombo Conference of Burma, Cambodia, Ceylon, Ghana, Indo nesia and the United Arab Republic to propose a nonaligned peace plan for India and Communist China. She visited Peking and New Delhi with the proposals. I Any political credit she won here with them was diluted by criticism of statements she made in Peking. Critics said that for a nonaligned premier she was too friendly toward China, too critical of the West. Aimed at Nephew One diplomat suggested the criticism was aimed primarily at Mrs. Bandaranaike's nephew and minister without portfolio, Felix Dias Bandaranaike. The peace missions were in her name but he did the talking and handled the details.

Soviets Release Catholic Prelate fCnlmw ft-am Pott Ont) that he to be released. He wms known to have been trans ferred from one location to an- ceher in Siberia in 1957 after So viet authorities accused him of communicating with Ukrainian clergy through secret pastoral letters. Vatican sources said the archbishop refused in 1960 to align himself with the Russian Orthodox Church and become a possible successor to Patriarch Alexis. Archbishop Slipyi was born at Zazdrist, in the Galizia region of the eastern Ukraine. He studied theology at the University of Lwow, then at Innsbruck, Austria. He was ordained in 1917 a few months after the Bolshevik revo lution. He became a bishop in 1939. His see was Lvov (Lwow), a Polish city ceded to the Ukraine in 1945. Next Sunday is his 71st birthday and a special celebration is planned at the Pontifical Oriental Institute. Authorities at the . Ukrainian seminary in Rome said the observance had been planned weeks ago to honor Archibishop Slipyi in absentia without any idea that the archbishop would be re leased. Vatican sources expressed be lief Archbishop Slipyi may be one of three prelates made cardinals "in pectore" in his breast, or in secret by Pope John in I960 Only the Pope knows who the secret cardinals are but all are said to be from Iron Curtain lands. There was speculation that the Kremlin released the prelate either as a propaganda move or in return for developments at the time of the Vatican ecumenical council last fall. Two Russian orthodox archimandrates arrived here from Moscow the day after the; council opened Oct. 11. Their journey marked the first formal contact between the Russian Orthodox Church and the Roman Catholic Church in centuries. by cepted Felix Bandaranaike. They forced him out of the post of finance minister last August. Not Inflghters The party has little margin for infighting. It commands only a narrow majority in Parliament Recent by-elections, held half way through the government's elected term of five years, indi cate its support is declining. Local elections have shown a drift toward the United National Par ty that ruled Ceylon before the Bandaranaikes. The Freedom Party manager for recent elections said the strongest criticism he heard was that the government had done nothing for economic development. Minority groups are hostile to the government on the grounds that it gives special rights to the majority of Sinhalese-speaking Buddhist Cevlonese. Even within this group of the 10 million people in Ceylon, there are charges of favoritism toward upcountry people from Mrs. Bandaranaike's district, Kandy. Balance Needed Little has been done to balance the export of tea, rubber and coconuts against needed imports, although more food is being grown to reduce traditional dependence . on foreign food. Inflationary methods of financing the government have reduced the buying power of the little man by pushing up the cost of living. The economic problem has been compensation for assets of standard vacuum and caltex oil com panies that were seized to start a eovernment oil business. The United States threatened to cut off aid to Ceylon if compensation was not paid by Feb. 1. MRS. EMMA L. NEWMAN Mrs. Emma M. Newman, 86, 33 Alabama Rd. Lehigh Acres, died early yesterday.

The snakes, which had come out of a damaged parcel from Tunisia, were captured and rushed to the Aquarium, to which the parcel was addressed.

REAL CRISIS MIAMI BEACH, Fla. - The Cuban crisis caused another crisis in Miami Beach, one which some felt was really drastic. The city's Servicemen's Center gent out an appeal for at least 400 young ladies, and preferably as many as 1,000. When troops were rushed into the area, the center found itself with plenty of servicemen, pastries and fruit punch, but greatly short of young hostesses. (Conrinutd from Post Ont) officers from the Marine Air Station at El Toro, Calif. They walked 50 miles Saturday, much of it uphill, between the air station and Camp Pendleton. Pilots Go Distance The air station said Lt. Roger G. Price, 26, a jet pilot did it in 10V4 hours, and Lt. Michael T. Heath, 24, also a jet pilot, and Lt. Otto G. Linden, 25, a supply officer, in 11 hours, 11 minutes. Three enlisted men who started with the officers dropped out with blistered feet. Let the Marines note, however, that a five-foot blonde mother of three also accomplished a 50-mile walking feat Saturday. Pauline Domico, 26, of Lincoln, Neb., hiked from Lincoln to the Missouri River in just about 20 hours. "The country is in sad shape if its people can't hike 50 miles," said Mrs. Domico, a reporter for the Lincoln Journal. Teens March Too Another 50-mile jaunt was completed Saturday by three Lawton, Okla., youths, Tommy Willingham, 18, Gary Adams, 17, and Jimmy Parker, 17, who walked from Law-ton to Wichita Falls, Tex., in 12 hours. Two other youths quit with seven miles to go. Kennedy, carrying the banner for the Justice Department, covered some 50 miles the hard way Saturday, outstripping four assistants on an icy, all-day march through central Maryland. Kennedy, 37, first stringer on the White House touch football team and an ardent hiker, walked from the Washington area to a point about 15 miles south of Camp David, the mountainous, isolated presidential retreat in north central Maryland. By highway, the distance Is about 65 miles. He was driven the last 15 miles. The attorney general was on the trail for 17 hours, stepping off the distance less than the standard 20 suggested for the test. Justice Department aides apparently feel that they have stolen a march on the White House staff. "We gave Pierre something to shoot at," said Edwin Guthman, public information officer for the Justice Department. The 43-year-old Guthman, an ex Infantryman, went along for the first 30 miles of the hike. The march, which began at 5 a.m., was 11 hours old at that point. Three other assistants to Ken nedy quit at about 28 miles Lewis Oberdorfor, 43, head of the tax division; James Symington, 28, son of Sen. Stuart Symington, D- Mo.; and David L. Hackett, 37, who has been assigned to special projects dealing with juvenile delinquency.

Jupiter Denial Administration officials have denied that the removal of Jupi ter missiles from Turkey and Italy had any connection with the Cuba crisis. Dependence will be put on Polaris submarines in the Mediterranean in the future. Official sources have said the decision to replace the vulnerable Juplters with much more nearly invulnerable Polarises was taken long before the Cuban crisis. At the height of the Cuban crisis, Khrushchev suggested a Turkey-Cuba missiles bargain. But after Kennedy declined to discuss the matter pending removal of the Soviet threat from Cuba, the Russian leader did not mention it publicly again. The Scott-Clark argument came amid a barrage of Republican suggestions on what to do about Cuba and of criticism of the Kennedy administration policies with regard to the threat of com munism in the Western Hemisphere. ! New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller said the Communist i stronghold in Cuba may result in a very dangerous undermining of the fabric of government, of law and order, and of the oppor tunity for social and economic advance and growth" in all of Latin America. Skis were probably used for military purposes is early ai they were used for ordinary travel.
