Faithful Floridians, getting wind of this, were up at dawn in steamheated hotel rooms "very unusual for Florida," they insisted outlining a counter at tack. ! They came up with some pyrotechnic prose pointing out that the California delegates had been ."thoroughly dipped" at the Florida bonier to prevent importation of insect pests, and suggest ing further that 1. Congress be urged to real jjze "the "great natural deep-i freeze potential" of California land utilize it to store surplus per : ishable foods produced in Florida ' and other states. 2. The name of California be changed to "Muevo Alaska." 3. The President be asked to uree creation of a subsidy al lowing California's "smaller" ci trus iruus to De Gippea in piasuc i "thereby making California the greatest , marbleproducing cen-jter of the world." j Prospects Good In St. Petersburg ST.

WFEC with studios at i 350 NE 71st St.. to a Detroit ad-ji vertising executive . for $50,000, i I has been revealed here. ; ji J Lyle Williams, jr.. general manager of the station, identified the purchaser as Howard B. Steere of Detroit, owner of the firm which bears his name. Sellers were members, of the Florida East Coast Broadcasting co., which opened the station last April 10. . The sale is subject to the ap proval of the Federal Communications Commission. Williams said the present staff will be maintained. The station operates now on a daytime schedule with 250-watt power on a frequency of 1220 kilocycles. Williams said an application for permanent fulltime operation on 1230 kilocycles now is pending with the FCC. The station has no network affiliation. Steere, it was reported, plans to become a resident of this area. Purchase of the station was handled through the Black burn, Hamilton co., media-brok ers of Washington.

LITTLE RIVER Ph. 89-8032 i ;Jrt 1-3 F be snow in south Florida on Christmas Eve. And there'll be s snowman, built by a bunch of brawny Ki-wanrans who don't think Christmas is Christmas without one. The Kiwanians are pretending, of course, that the snow's just for the kids. They'll build the snowman as a painful duty; they must, after all, give the youngsters a merry Christmas. The lucky younguns are a couple of hundred who live around Florida City. The snow to be made by an ice machine from about 20 pounds of ice will be only part of the Christmas Eve entertainment the Kiwanians of-I fer this year for the second time. Santa Claus will distribute candy, fruit and nuts, and everybody will sing Christmas carols under a lighted outdoor Christmas tree. Santa or a reasonable fac simile will also be performing elsewhere in the Redland district. The VFW in Homestead has a project all its own for ! Friday as well as Christmas Eve. I A streamlined Saint Nick will 'arrive by plane at the municipal j airport t 2 p.m. Friday. Then he'll abandon his modern trans-! portation for a sleigh gold, no less, with white snow. But not real snow. After passing out candy and 'oranges at the VFW home, Homestead's Santa will reem-jbark in his sleigh for a trip to j the Negro -section, where he'll distribute candy and oranges to ; the youngsters. I On Christmas Eve, Santa will ' install lights on his sleigh and ! travel around the residential ar-,, visiting children's homes. A I truckload of VFW. members will ; follow him. . j The VFW will also offer three I prizes for he best outdoor Christ-! mas decorations in the Redland district. I There'rc big doings in Per- rine too. j Santa Claus will have fruit ! and randy for the children at i .. . . a community . nritnias tree in the park on Christmas Eve, and the children will exchange gifts. Then there'll be group carol singing. The celebration is cooperatively sponsored by the American legion, the Legion Auxiliary and the Woman's c-l ub. The Woman's elub " will award three Christmas decoration prites two for the beat-derorated residence - in Perrine, one for the bes-dec-oratcd business. ' South Miami children are lucky ther's to be Christmas entertainment for them both Friday and Saturday nights. Santa Claus will-bring each one a treat a th Volunteer Fire Department's yearly party on the Community house grounds Friday night On - Christmas Eve they'll munch gingerbread cookies and Callers Special organ music and cho ral. singing, plus stained glass windows imported from Belfast, Ireland, are: features of this year's Christmas display for South Miami's bakery. The display, the largest and most elaborate in the bakery's history, represents the interior of a1 church. 1 here ll be organ music from 9 a. m. to 8 p. m. daily till Jan. 2; from 8 to 10 p.m. Mrs. Martha Horton will play the Hammond organ; a choir of 150 voices will sing from 8 to 10 on Christmas night. In spite of Christmas, such eternal vrritifK as tiorrac-ing: go marching on in South Dade. And speaking of racing, the season has stretched tight the facilities of South Miami Coach Lines, inc., which daily runs crowded busses to and from the tracks. . So every afternoon at 4 Driver Jimmy Tosi scrambles into a vehicle that looks just like an ordinary sedan and sets out on the company's north -loop run, keeping a sharp eye out for people who look like they're waiting for a bus. It's usually a lonely drive, he says. Incidentally the bus company's' ion the verge of finishing instal lation of lour public restrooms, the absence of which has been! responsible for as much South Miami city council discussion as anything else in the past few months and for considerably more euphemisms than anything; else in years. The Redland buzted this week with rumors of nudist activity south of Florida City. Usually reliable sources offered the most concrete story. It seems that somebody knows somebody who knows somebody who knows a' repairman. j The repairman, going for ai pleasant drive on what he' thought was a routine call, took along some relatives. And they were greeted by a group of un-selfconscious and completely unclothed human beings. Miss Helen Fitzgibbons of Homestead and Luther L, Chandler, Goulds, announced their marriage last week at a cocktail party an hour after-the cer-' emony. Chandler, an independent Redland grower, was recent-! ly elected chairman of the Dadei county Production Marketing; Administration committee. With no hair-pulling, Perrine' Woman's club members decided last week that Mrs. Oda Zachry is their best cook. . .There'll be; motorboat races at. the crash j basin in Homestead Bayfront park from 1 to 5 p.m. today. . . ; Fourteen Homestead 4-H club boys will go fishing on the Flori da City canal Tuesday, s - , Christmas tree ornaments arei now made which are fire-retar-! dant.
