Roundup social graces, personal grooming and how to dress. On the third week of the classes, Mrs. Andron said, she went to drop off her daughter at the Brazilian Avenue studio where Ms. Cum-mings was teaching. Ms. Cum-mings wasn't there, Mrs. Andron said, and wouldn't be there the following weeks. ; Ms. Cummings, 51, was arrested near Burlington, where police said she was advertising the New England Finishing School that she was running. She currently is being held in Chittenden County Community Correctional Center on -$20,000 bond and is expected to be extradited to Palm Beach County later this week. Bike Trail Palm Beach Daily News, Wednesday, April 18, 1984 Page 7 From Page J Todman Foundation Honored For Gift A $1 million gift from the William S. and Frances B. Todman Foundation to New York University will create the William S. and Frances B. Todman Film and Television Center at the University's Tisch School of the Arts. The gift was announced by New York University President John Brademas at a dinner honoring the donor, Fran Todman of Palm Beach. According to Dr. Brademas: "Mrs. Todman's generous gift will enable us to provide facilities commensurate with the extraordinary quality of the programs, fac ulty and students in the Institute of Film and Television at Tisch School of the Arts." The William S. and Frances B. Todman Film and Television Center at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts will be one of the finest noncommercial film and television production facilities on the East Coast. Located in a former New York University gymnasium at 35 W. Fourth St., the center will house a sound stage and studio complex; video editing facilities; screening rooms; rehearsal space; costume, prop and scenery creation and storage areas; and production offices. "It is especially appropriate," Dr. Brademas said, "that the name of William S. Todman be memorialized through the creation of film and television studies bearing his name." Mrs. Todman is the widow of William S. Todman, co-founder of the television production company Goodson-Todman Productions. Todman created some of television's best-known and longest run-ing television game shows, including such prime-time productions as What's My Line?, I've Got a Secret, To Tell the Truth and The Price is Right. Funding for the new facility was initiated with a $500,000 challenge grant from the Kresge Foundation as part of a campaign to raise $2.2 million for a new film and television center. According to Preston Robert Tisch, chairman of the de velopment committee for the Tisch School of the Arts, "The $1 million gift from Mrs. Todman represents the largest single gift in this $2.2 million campaign." Boca Man Receives Humanitarian Award Black, Starr & Frost will present its Golden Eagle Humanitarian Award to John E. Shuf f for his service to the community and generous support of the Boca Raton Symphony Orchestra at a reception in honor of the Boca Raton Symphony Orchestra League on Wednesday, April 18, at the Boca Raton Hotel and Club. Shuff, an Ohioan by birth and a Floridian by choice, is co-owner of Boca Raton magazine and formerly vice president and chief financial officer of Capital Cities Communications. He is one of the founding members of the Boca Raton Symphony Orchestra and a former member of the executive committee. One of the highlights of the evening will be a presentation of Black, Starr & Frost jewels and Rolex watches. In a gallery-like setting, live models in picture-framed, 8-foot-high shadow boxes will create "living portraits" to show the more than $5 million collection. The shadow boxes are equipped with portrait lights and drawstring curtains, enabling the models to unveil each change. From Page ! the way up to Palm Beach from their northwestern Broward County hometown. Mrs. Fobes, and co-leaders Phyllis McCully and Linda Bardeman, knew the troop had to earn their bicycle badges by riding their bikes all day, but there wasn't enough room in their suburban community. The parks in Coral Springs are small and riding around those parks in circles would bore the scouts, Mrs. Fobes thought. Then she remembered the Palm Beach bike path she often rode as ; a teen-ager. "I used to ride it every Seawall- evening to relax," said Mrs. Fobes. The 1967 Palm Beach debutante also reasoned: "This is the premium bike trail (in the area) and the safest place to be." Mrs. Fobes and her family are about to move away from South Florida, relocating to the Washington, D.C. area because her airline pilot husband has been transferred to New York. She wanted her kids to experience the Palm Beach bicycle trail before leaving. So the troop leaders rented a trailer to cart the bikes to Palm Beach and notified local police officials they would be using the town's thoroughfares. The girls had Easter week off from school (they attend public schools and the Coral Springs Christian School), and Tuesday turned out to be a convenient day. The girls bounced happily on the sidewalk before their big ride. It isn't everyday a 10-year-old gets to ride her bike for a day in another part of the country (more or less). They sported windbreakers in the day's temperate weather, turned cartwheels and busily fastened their lunches to their bicycles (this was part of their getting the bicycling badge). The day went like this: riding the seven miles from Chilean Avenue to the Palm Beach inlet, including a detour east on Barton Avenue to see the Bethesda church, up County Road to ride around The Breakers hotel (Mrs. Fobes confided she believed the girls would like to see a hotel that big), and then trekking west on Royal Poinciana Way to join the north bike trail all the way up to the inlet. Along the way the young scouts reveled in the local flora and the homes. Cars would be waiting at the inlet to bring them back. Palm Beach police were notified of the trip to make sure the scouts would easily make it across the intersections. "It gives me something to do," said one town patrolman. Mrs. Clark herself was anxious to join her daughter and granddaughters Tammie, 10, and Tif- From Page h Hammon Avenue. McCarthy says the repairs, which are being done by Bates and Daly of Fort Lauderdale, may cost about $10,000. The problem with the seawall is that small holes and cracks in the base of the wall are letting the sand out behind the wall, McCarthy says. The problem has become evident in the walkway along the wall, where the ground is slumping and the sidewalk is cracking. The seawall, which was built in 1926, is in effect letting out sand and allowing "cavities" to form in the ground behind it. He says work crews have been injecting grout about 15 feet into the earth behind the wall. McCarthy hopes the cement will fill in the holes and create a "grout curtain" to stop the leaks. "All it takes is a little bit of that sand to get lost for the ground above to collapse," says McCarthy. "What we're doing now is a temporary solution, but it may be all that we need to keep the water out" McCarthy says the alternative to protecting the area is to install a "tow wall" along the seawall, but he said that meth od would cost the town considerably more money. McCarthy says a tow wall, which costs about $700 to $800 a foot, is a sheet pile creation that is driven into the ground 7 or 8 feet below the old wall, providing a shield for protection. In late March, workers at the beachwall treated about 30 feet of the wall and then discovered about another 70 feet needed to be treated. "We'll end up testing about 100 feet, and I hope everything will hold," McCarthy said. McCarthy did not say when the area would be opened to the public. Gardens- From Page 1" ' break, made you want to cry. But now some of them have recuperated," said Stretch. Stretch installed eight gas-burning stoves in the screened-in growing area to help revive plants that had been in the frozen flower beds before he and his crew moved them back to Happy Acres. Stretch said there's a feel you get for plants and flowers that gets stronger by just being around them for a long time. No, he said, he doesn't talk to them aloud like a lot of people do. "It might seem funny, but they seem to respond to understanding. I really get attached to plants and feel sorry for the ones that don't make it," said Stretch. If it sounds like Stretch is corny, he isn't at all. In fact, it actually mortifies him a little after much prodding to say, "Sometimes I see a little flower among the others that's in trouble and I don't throw it away. I'll say, 'Come on little guy, you can make it' " LUXURY GARDEN APT. NEAR WORTH AVE. & OCEAN 3 BEDROOMS, 3 BATH 4 YEARS OLD - 2200 SQ. FT. GARAGE -POOl $30,000 YEARLY EXCLUSIVE Earl A. Hollis, Inc.

She even did ballet stretching exercises in her own Daisy Gardens apartment to prepare for the long roundup. However, she soon discovered the new tire on her red bicycle had gone flat. So Mrs. Clark resigned herself to slicing pieces of cake left over from a recent party for North-wood Institute, so the scouts could restore some energy to their tired bodies when they returnej from their day on the Palm Beach bike trail. m r"3 T3 F:r:s a trrriR i;ice ESFISL'.LLY AT i-J 4 .

The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up more than four points to above 1,164 well below its best level of the session. The market opened higher and the Dow Jones Index moved to a gain of five at 11 a.m. before giving up part of the rise. It was ahead 2 points at noon recovering to a gain of five at 2 p.m. and late in the afternoon was ahead ten points before backing off again. More than 1,000 issues posted advances nearly twice as many as declined. Volume pushed by some large block trades rose to 98 million shares from 73.8 million yesterday. David T. Bianchi Vice President for Equities Trading at First Boston Corp. noted 'It's early in the second quarter and there must be a decent amount of cash available. The numbers of large block trades and heavier volume today seems to show institutional portfolio reshuffling.' Bianchi said the market was "Organized confusion with the Average bouncing up and back. The institutional interest has been rotating as they try to find the leadership groups.' This morning's report of a 26.6 percent decline in March housing starts from the unusually strong February figure helped bond prices in early dealings and analysts said it would alleviate fears of the economy overheating. The 1,638,000-unit pace last month is a more sustainable pace economists said and is consistent with the way interest rates have been moving. VS.
