Burial will be in Kato-nah with local arrangements by Bess Funeral Home Claim ‘Myth’ Broad Charges Claims by Grant Stockdale that he saved the taxpayers “millions of dollars” in connection with the new Broad causeway were branded “a figment of imagination' Thursday by Shepard Broad his opponent In the race for county commission Stockdale said In a speech that he caused a change in the act authorizing the causeway which eliminates the toll charge on the causeway five years after the indebtedness has been paid off He said this was done over the objection of Broad mayor of Bay Harbor Islands and sponsor of the causeway Broad countered Thursday with a certified statement hy Secretary of State R A Gray It declared the act was introduced as Senate Bill 597 by Sen R B Gautier "I certify that the Journal of the Senate does not show that said bill was amended in the Senate and the Journal of the House does not show that It was amended in the House and furthermore said bill passed as it was introduced” Gray said Broad said this proved that Stockdale's claim was a “myth” “It seems to indicate a lack of personal integrity in a man who would make such a statement” Broad declared Russell Hits Ring Around Rosy Tactics Br The Associated Fres JACKSONVILLE — Sen Richard B Russell said Thursday night Sen Estes Kefauver of Tennessee has been using “rlng-around-t h e rosy” tactics in his bid for the Democratic presidential nomination Russell used the description of his opponent's campaign in a radio speech here It was the opening gun in his fight against Kefauver for delegate support in next Tuesday’s second Florida primary The Georgia senator referred to Kefauver’s appearance last week end before the Washington meeting of Americans for Democratic Action (ADA) “More accurately it should be known as a group for anti-demo-cratic action because this little organization of self-styled liber als actually seeks less democra cy rather than more democracy In this country’ he said What made the ADA meeting significant Russell said was the fact that one of the speakers “was none other than my opponent in Florida the junior senator from Tennessee” “He and his hackers were seeking ADA indorsement for his candidacy” Russell went on “My opponent demanded an even more liberal platform for the Democratic party in 1952 than it had in 1948 “This swallowing of ADA pol icies to obtain backing Is in line with the ring-around-the rosy tactics that my opponent has been following” the Georgia sen-a tor said “When he was campaigning In Florida for the preferential primary he appeared on a TV show with me in Miami the day before the primary He said then he was opposed to a compulsory FEPC Yet In Washington he appears before ADA members — the front runners for FEPC — and seeks to woo their support” “My opponent has said in Congress that a compulsory FEPC was unconstitutional and would regiment the American people yet he also has announced he would accept it

persons were arrested Thursday on charges of violating anti-monopoly laws by setting up a beer trust “Which side of the fence Is he on?” asked Russell The Georgia senator who also appeared on a TV program before leaving for Tampa said the Amer-iran people are demanding skilled leadership experience and Integrity “X can give these to the American people I can give them unceasing devotion to duty and will-ingness and capacity to work as long as necessary and as hard as necessary to keep our country safe” he said In a press conference earlier after flying in from Washington Russell said a battle to keep America from bogging deeper into socialistic or communistic depths is the main issue confronting American voters By NIXON SMILEY Herald Farm Editor HOMESTEAD — Florida grove owners may be able to save money and pocket additional profits as a result of research by two Agriculture Department scientists Dade county avocado and lime grojvers Thursday heard M H Gallatin Soil Conservation Service scientist describe a new program for irrigating groves By Gallatin's method a grove is watered only when the soil moisture content reaches the “wilting point” for the trees Heretofore groe owners water-ed at regular intervals Gallatin reported that his "cycle method” of irrigating resulted not only in saving of money- but produced almost twice as much fruit as the conventional program for irrigating Dr Walter Reuther of the Agriculture Department’s Orlando experiment station reported that citrus grove owners in the sandy oils of central Florida may save money by cutting phosphate out of their fertilizer mixture Most of these central Florida soils have a natural supply of phosphate for the trees to draw upon” Dr Reuther said “Grove owners in these areas need to apply phosphates only when soil tests show a need for it” Dr Reuther also advised growers that higher quality citrus could be produced by some changes In traditional fertilizer practices The traditional practice has been to apply a fertilizer containing lots of potash and a medium amount of nitrogen But research by Dr Reuther has shown that the best citrus is produced by the opposite formula — high nitrogen and a medium amount of potash (Dr Reuther’s research was done in the sandy soils of central Florida and his recommendations were not meant to include the limestone area of southeast Florida) Dr Reuther's first report on his research with citrus fertilizers made last year before the Florida State Horticultural society at West Palm Beach baa been hailed as the most important findings affecting citrus culture in 20 years The Thursday meeting sponsored by the Avocado and Lime Growers Association and the county agent’s office was held at the Redland District Lions Club on Silver Palm dr Several other research reports affecting limes and avocados were made Dr John L Malcolm of the Subtropical Experiment- Station suggested that growers could save money by fertilizing lightly rather than heavily during the rainy season He added that fertilizers might have to be applied up to six times a year rather than three or four if the light application method was used A recommendation that grow-ers band together in raising the quality standards of their limes and avocados was made by Dr Paul L Harding of the Agriculture Department's Orlando experiment station It was Dr Harding who headed the research which resulted in determining “minimum standards" for orarges and grapefruit which was the basis for the citrus maturity code passed in 1949 by the state legislature DISINTERESTED DOG JOINS DAN
