Cavetown, Md. Phone Smithsburg 49 would "go the limit." Tho prosecutor said six or eight wijuessea were summoned to appear today. A number of others had also been subpoenaed, he add ed, to testify regarding "vice con ditlons." The inquiry, opening as the cltv was crowded with thousands of vacationing winter visitors, WRS a standard topic of conversation at rarn tracks, hotels and beaches, Worley said Ihe grand jury would consider these matters: 1. General vice conditions, including illofial gambling, operation of disorderly houses and similar activities. 2. City contracts and purchases of supplies and equipment. 3. Refunding of the city's $28,000,000 bonded debt. 4. Calling of a special election at which voters last fall turned down a proposed franchise for a bus company. 5. The charge by Bryan C. Hanks, president of the Florida Power and Light Company, that an unnamed city representative solicited a $260,000 bribe to settle a rate case pending in Federal court. It was the public statement hy Hanks that led to the call for the special grand jury. Mayor Robert R. Williams, whose administration is under fire in the probe, last week announced his candidacy for Congress and later assailed Hanks' charges as an attempt to coerce the city commission into setting the rate case.
