Other complaints from the Pines, particularly over the noise created by aircraft leaving North Perry, also have cropped up from time to time. Iris feels that his proposal could solve most of these complaints and make flying into and out of the field safer for those in the air and on the ground.

THEFT REPORTED Kansas City Concern To Open Boynton Plant Fire Unit Needs Just 12 Books POMPANO BEACH The South Pompano Beach Volunteer Fire Dept. is ready to trade trading stamps books in an attempt to earn an emergency rescue station wagon. President Bob Driscoll today reported the volunteers are 12 books shy of the 833 books required for the rescue unit. "We're willing to trade even-steven," Driscoll said. "Some people argue that there are more stamps in one book than another, but a book is a book as far as we're concerned." The stamp drive has 'been in progress since last fall. The rescue unit would be added to a fire engine and water truck already being used by the volunteers. Persons wishing ' to contribute books or negotiate for trade may contact Driscoll by telephone (WE 3-9412). Stilt WtyA&Ay. HOLLYWOOD The mystery of how a British Honduras dugout canoe got to Hollywood Beach appeared solved for a short time, but investigation showed it was two other boats. Walter B. Marshall, 5701 NW Seventh Terr., Ft. Lauderdale, told The News that Capt. John Frates had brought a similar canoe to South Florida aboard his 50-foot schooner, "Three Cousins," but that the canoe had been stolen while the schooner was moored in the Miami River. . A check with Capt Frates, who lives in Coral Gables, revealed that indeed the captain had brought such a canoe here in 1957. In fact, he brought back two of them, and later sold one. But Capt. Frates canoes were made from mahogany logs, while the one that washed up on the beach here is carved from a lighter colored, coarser grained wood than mahogany. One source said it might be poplar. So Hollywood's mystery canoe is still that a mystery, even though F. G. Walton Smith, director of the University of Miami Marine Laboratory has identified it as coming from the British Honduras area. t It 'A n i i H For IVon-Support Seek Ex - Policeman Illinois courts "haven't been co-operative at all" in responding to requests to haul ex-Pompano Beach Detective James Bolds into court on a non-support petition, Assistant State Attorney R.
