CD In an era when man's insatiable conquest of land has turned to planets and stars, two groups dreamed of creating a country out of a coral dot submerged in the Atlantic four miles off the shore of the United States. Thursday, a federal appeals court in New Orleans squelched hopes of a new nation, which both groups had pursued since 1964. The "Grand Capri Republic," which was to come to life on a coral waste which lies 20 feet below the Atlantic surface near the deep blue waters of the Gulf Stream "must perish, like the lost continent 'Atlantis', beneath the waves and waters of the sea which constantly submerged the reefs," ruled the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The court, which called the plan "fantastic," found that Triumph and Long Reef, within sight of Florida's heavily poulated Gold Coast, are part of the continental shelf and therefore are "natural resources" and subject to United States jurisdiction. Atlantis Development Corp., Ltd., and Louis M. Ray and the Acme General Contractors, Inc. laid claims to the reefs, and filed the appeal to overturn an earlier decision which ruled the companies had no right to develop the land. The district court suit was filed by the United States, alleging that the dredging of material in building caissons on the reefs was causing irreparable injury. The latest ruling clears the way for the federal government to propose adding the two reefs, which lie at the entrance of Biscayne Bay, to Rollaways Are Handy For Guests Rollaway beds, hidden by day, pulled out by night, are an answer to many a homemaker's problem of too few bedrooms for unexpected overnighters. Two single beds are the solution, plus a combination of built-in cabinets which provide space for the beds and otherwise serve for storage. The lower cabinet is desk high providing clearance fort he beds. Its top surfaced with prefinished Marlite paneling, makes a fine countertop during the day. Extending up to a point near the ceiling are other cabinets, fronting the wall. Their lower reaches are empty so that there's room for day storage of the beds. Their fronts can be handsome doors of a plastic-finished hardboard paneling such as Marlite textured carved leaf planks bonded to a wood framework. the plans for Islandia National Park. "The evidence overwhelmingly shows that the government has a vital interest, from a practical as well as an aesthetic viewpoint, in preserving the reefs for public use and enjoyment," the appeals court said. The two separate groups envisioned different methods for the same end to avoid taxation by the United States. The reefs' proximity to the advantages and luxuries available on Florida's nearby-shores heightened the promoters visions of mansions and pleasure spas perched on coral points protruding from the ocean. According to previous records, Ray and investors in Acme spent $100,000 in a preliminary project to build up the reefs in 1964. But Hurricane Betsy, which socked its winds full force onto the Florida mainland in 1965, demolished the piled up sand, and the 500 by 2,000 feet reefs were once again under water. Acme's development program was aimed primarily at providing a resort area with home sites. However, promoters for the Atlantis group sought to make the reefs an entity unto themselves. Atlantis backers dreamed of a foreign country to be named "The Isle of Gold" a country that would issue its own stamps, distribute its own currency, and even form its own defense department in the shadow of the United States. All these plans were disclosed in 1964 by Larry Vita, a Miami Beach developer involved in the Atlantis venture. Vita also stressed that the reefs would be beyond the three-mile territorial limits and therefore outside the bounds of U.S. jurisdiction over gambling.
