NEWS-HERALD, Panama City, Fla.. Tuesday, July 2, 1974 Page 5A 'Dingbats' Put Jacksonville 'On Its Ear' JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (UPI) ~ A small group of deranged "dingbats" has the city of Jacksonville "on Its ear." That's the summation of a veteran policeman of the situation surrounding a series of attacks by what appears to be a lunatic band preying on youngsters found out late at night. City Communications Coun­ selor Hugh Wilson described the •situation "as pretty cool right now, pending one more Incident." Wilson, a young articulate black who was once a television news reporter, said another Incident similar to the slaylngs of Stephen A. Orlando, 18, and Stephen Lamont Roberts, 17, could be the flashpoint for a racial confrontation. Spanish-American Unity Urged SUPERIOR.PERFORMANCE - Albert H. Boan, a member of the Transient Alert Section of the 4756th Organizational Maintenance Squadron at Tyndall AFB, has been awarded a Special, Achievement Award for Outstanding Performance during the past year. The award was presented by Lt. Col. Conrad Wade, commander of the squadron. Ethics Board Goes To Work EL PASO Tex. (UPI) ~ If a meeting called for sometime within the next three months comes off at Miami, Mayor Maurice Ferre hopes, the 13 million Spanish speaking people of the United States could finally be represented by a single organization. Ferre, a Puerto Rlcan, called for the creation of a National Spanish-American Coalition In a speech before the 45th Anniversary Convention of the League of United Latin American Citizens. He asked that all major Spanish-American groups meet In Miami before the end of September to create the coalition. "Only In unity can we solve our problems," Ferre said to the Lulac dinner crowd. "I have been str'uck by the evidence of how much a spirit of unity has begun to take root In the Spanish speaking community. Our youth especially seem to be proud of our cultural heritage and determined to preserve It and to nurture It." Both victims were white and tape recordings sent to police and the news media claim the killings were the work of "The Black Liberation Army," an amorphous revolutionary group which police say is a violent offshoot of the Black Panthers. Many top officials In the Jacksonville sheriff's office, Including chief of detectives Matt Touchton, have not given up on the theory that the slaylngs and subsequent taped messages are part of a brutal plan to throw police and public off the city's drug scene. Police said the local drug scene is in a state of flux recently, with changing allegiances taking place. "The boy (Roberts) was messing around with drugs and Orlando was Involved more in drugs than Roberts," Touchton said. Whatever the reasons for the slaylngs, they have caused fear among residents of this stately Southern city near the CJeorgla- Florlda border. "We've got three or four dingbats with a big knife, a little gun and a tape recorder who've got this town sitting on Its ear," said Sgt. Mike (jould. Sheriff's Department public Information officer. "What we believe we're dealing with Is a small, very small group," said Gould. "We're going around telling people that this Is something head "In a body of water." tilierlii's office Ims offered for The National Association for Information leading to the the Advancement of Colored arrest and conviction of the People (NAACP) has called for murderers, calm In the community and "They've never offered a registers abhorence over the reward to anyone who killed a killings. black person," said Mrs, "We are not about to make Steward. "There have been the assumption that a black group Is Involved In these killings," said Mrs. Eddie Mae Steward, local NAACP president. iMUTwiS^ tKiS°?f steward also questioned uSs'nTatL-ta?^^^^^^^^^^^ '''^ late at night walking In places where there aren't too many . people. That's not a good mixture." The possible third vlctlrn Gould refers to is a long-haired youth who was reported to have been spirited away by a car full of black men on the city's west side. An Intensive search has failed to turn up the youth or his body, although the BLA tape recordings said he would be found dead with a bullet In his many other Incidents within the black community which did not cause such an uproar.'' Jacksonville Sheriff Dale Carson said his department would offer a reward for the killers If the victims were either black or white. By Roger Bollen HEADS WE BW @R0CERtE6JAlLS TALLAHASSEE (UPI) The new state ethics commission, told by Attorney General Robert Shevln It will enforce a law "In many ways inferior to the old standards of conduct law," wrestled Monday with forms to be used by public officials to disclose their finances. The financial disclosure forms must be distributed as quickly as possible. Public officials and candidates for office must file the reports within 10 days after qualifying for this summer's elections. Shevln, who said he has appointed Deputy Attorney deneral Baya Harrison to act as full-time liaison to the commission, said the law passed by the 1974 legislature may be weaker than then existing laws. "I'm sorry to say that, after close review, the new code of ethics and financial disclosure law leaves much to be desired and In many ways Is Inferior to the old standards of conduct law," Shevln said. "But It Is a beginning toward necessary financial disclosure and It Is a beginning which you and I and the legislature can build on In the years to come." The nine-member commission, appointed by Gov. Reubln Askew, house speaker Terrell Sessums and former senate president Mallory Horne, agreed to a five-page statement outlining the law. Public officials and' candidates in city, county and state government must report each source of their income If It is 10 per cent or more of their total earnings each year, listing the sources In order of size, but not the dollar amount.
