MoMath, was not necessary to recover the money. Adams and Woods are accused in the suit, filed by Atty. Gen. Ike Murray, of wrongful appropriation or public funds. Adams said the charge was "utterly ridiculous." Murray Files Suit Murray filed the suit following .testimony before the Highway Audit Commlsion that the 'money purportedly raised by public subscription in 1950 to finance improvements on the Indian Bay road in Monroe County, ended up in the governor's campaign fund. The money was in two checks made payable to Adams and endorsed by Woods as "campaign manager." . Adams said he received the money along with "other funds designated as campaign contributions." "I asumed, honestly and sincerely, that these two checks were likewise so Intended." he said, "There Was Nothing" "There had been absolutely noth- in the discussions or transac- s surrounding the building of ian Bay Road to cause me to think otherwise. "To describe my handling of these funds as a conversion of public money is utterly ridiculous." •He continued: "In order to remove any doubt as to the propriety of having turned this money over to the campaign fund, I have instructed my attorneys to Immediately deposit the full sum Into the registry of the Pul- askl Circuit Court. I am requesting this court to determine whether It should be returned to the parties who gave It to me to do Kith a; they Intended at the time I re oeived it, or whether it is the pro «~ A /*><, -A > -f&W*' 5 ' •>«-..', ^ • •< "DOWN AND OUT—Free-falling parachutists make a striking, topsy-turvy picture a few seconds after bailing out over the Navy and Air Force parachute experimental Jump area at El i Centra, Calif.
