mmmmmmmmmwmmm 111IIB11 1nll(1 mm I Election Law Violation Suit Against Kirk Historic TALLAHASSEE (J) The citizen's suit filed last week against Gov. Claude Kirk is the only suit of its type filed against a governor in memory, say long-time members of the state's legal staff. The suit was filed by Apalach-icola Times Editor J. A. Maloney, who alleged some 20 violations by Kirk of Florida's 1951 who-give-it-who got-it election laws.

THE alleged violations included a much-debated $74,600 campaign loan that reportedly was repaid by Kirk backers.

It appears the office can participate in the Kirk suit in an advisory capacity, but the 1 i a governor may have to find his own attorneys. The suit once more will probably prompt debate on whether Florida's statutes governing campaign contributions and expenditures are strict enough and have enough teeth. did not have the list recipients of the funds or who made the contributions.

"I THINK VERY definitely that our laws would certainly give some idea of what a candidate spends and what he receives which we did not get prior to the 1951 law," said Mrs. Dot Glisson, state elections division supervisor. Mrs. Glisson, who has served with the state since 1951, said she could not recall any citizens' suit "There has not been a suit of this nature in the 28 years I've been in this office," said one assistant to Atty. Gen.

Earl Faircloth, who declined use of his name. Kirk may find himself alone in battling the suit. It's apparently worded so that the challenge is against Kirk personnally, not as the governor of Florida. as governor. It looks to me like a personal suit," the legal source said.

"We don't know who's going to handle the case. We're not sure we should handle it if he (Kirk) asks us. It's customary to assist if he asks us. That's up to the attorney general," the official said. GOV.

(AP) us Suit Filed Horror Show Injuries Claimed To Build Church MIAMI () Nine Florida teenagers are going to do something constructive during their summer vacation build a church in a small town in Jamaica. The group will fly to Jamaica Monday to begin six weeks of labor on a concrete block church for St.

Paul's Anglican Congregation at Clapham, near the city of Ocho Rios. THE FIVE GIRLS and four boys were chosen from more than 80 volunteers in the division of young people of the Episcopal Diocese of South Florida. In preparation for the job, they spent three days at a camp at Avon Park getting used to the food and customs of Jamaica. Father James Rasnick, head of the division, said he was "really excited" about the project. "We've never done anything like this," he said.

"This is the first time we've sent people as well as money." THE SOUTH FLORIDA Diocese is a companion to the Jamaican Diocese in a program called "Mutual Responsibility and Interdependence." The division of young people has raised $5,500 to build the church. The nine volunteers, who will work eight hours a day, are Mary Williams and Bruce Overton of Miami, Mary Sexton of Dunedin, Mary Clarkson of St. Petersburg, Gwen Gale of Ocala, Janice Hess of Tampa, David Miller of Lakeland, Granger Marley of Bartow and David Aspinwall of Palm Beach Gardens.

"I TAMPA (UPI) An illusion in a horror show at the Florida State Fair last February was so believable it has resulted in a damage suit of more than $100,000.

Ramon Melendez of Tampa filed suit Friday against Royal American Shows, operators of the show, and the Florida State Fair Association and the Gasparilla Association. MELENDEZ SAID he took his two small daughters into a show billed as "The House of Fright." One of the highlights of the show, the suit alleged, came when a woman called "Princess Atasha" was charged by an illusion into a large, dangerous looking gorilla that began shaking the bars of its cage violently and "escaped." Melendez said he was holding his two daughters in his arms at the time and that the crowd panicked knocking him to the ground. The suit alleged the side show barker had urged the crowd to press closer to the cage telling the patrons they were safe. MELENDEZ CONTENDED the Tempted Ava Hedrick of Homossassa Springs exhibits that certain "ani-mal magnetisim" required to acquaint oneself with wildlife, or could it be that squirrel is more interested in peanut she's holding rather than pretty girl. (UPI) Firemen Dodge Bullets In Blaze PALMETTO UPI An early morning fire in one of Palmetto's oldest sections routed 30 people from a burning three-story apartment building and leveled a row of stores Saturday while firemen dodged exploding bullets from a burning hardware store.

Damage was estimated by firemen at $355,000. The blaze was controlled after Zy2 hours. Many firemen were treated for smoke inhalation and heat-blistered feet and one fireman suffered a broken finger but no one was reported seriously hurt. The blaze, apparently started in the rear of a furniture store, raced through the hardware store and into an adjacent printing plant on the first floor cf the apartment building. Bullets and shotgun shells, as well as paint products in the hardware store, flared and popped as the firemen worked nearby.

Viet War Foes Meeting At UF GAINESVILLE (A Some 150 persons from several cities gathered Saturday for the first Florida meeting of Vietnam Summer, a national protest movement against the war in Vietnam. Alan Levin, Florida field secretary for Vietnam Summer and chairman of the Gainesville Students for Democratic Society, said growing hostility to the war was developing on university campuses. "In Florida in particular," he said, "there is discontentment among college stuents about the war and being drafted for it.

The object of our meeting is to get people in Florida to speak out against the war." Specifically, he said, the movement would include counseling on how to avoid the draft and circulation of petitions for recall of congressmen who are "hawks."

TALLAHASSEE (UPI) -There is virtually no chance that the governor's $435 million road bond program will get through the present legislature, but there is a "fair possibility" it can win favorable consideration in a special session to follow on constitutional revision.

This was the assessment of Sen. Ralph Poston, D-Miami, chairman of the senate public roads and highways committee, as the 1967 legislature headed into the final week of its regular and extended session. THE ROAD bond bill-a major aim of Gov. Claude Kirk's new administration has been resting in the senate committee since the day of its introduction weeks ago. It has made its way through two house committees, but has still to win a place on the calendar for floor consideration in the session that expires Friday if the legislators do not quit sooner.

Kirk made a concession in his "no new tax" pledge in an attempt to speed consideration of the controversial measure. But it came too late for the present session- and also came at a time of heated political infighting over educational financing. THE GOVERNOR informed Poston, in writing, just last Thursday that "I would not oppose" a one-cent increase in the state gasoline tax "if this were the only way to finance the bonds." The governor said that since the bond program would be in the form of a constitutional amendment, subject to a vote of the people, he would not mind the penny tax hike if the people decided they want to pay it in order to get roads. He "reluctantly" declined, however, to accept a gasoline tax increase for roads or any other purpose if it were not subject to a vote of the people and tied to a Dona program maninoff, "Symphony No. 2," 11:30 pm-Orjeri Cabaret, Same as Thursday.
