(icorge Shipley, of abusing the franking privilege for p e r- sonal and political business. Lamkin, a Watson dairy- farmer, asked the court to prevent further alleged abuses by Shipley and to order the incumbent to reimburse the government for postage on personal mail. Shipley denied the charges. "I know the law pertaining to the use of the frank inside and out and I have done nothing illegal. I know I am within the law," Shipley said. He added that his mailings have been reviewed and upheld by the House Kthics Committee. Lamkin said the alleged abuses included mailings to voters in Vermilion County, which will not become part of the 22nd District officially until January although eligible persons will vote for the 22nd District's candidate in November. Lamkin also said Shipley has mailed personal letters, congratulatory and sympathy notes to persons in his district. "Shipley rejoices over a birth in his district and grieves over a death," Lamkin said. "His feelings would be more believable if those letters were mailed at his expense rather than ours."

(AP) — The mayor and a hotel executive view the summer's political conventions as akin to a vaccination: painful now but good for Miami Beach in the long run. But Mayor Chuck Hall said 'one double dose is enough. Jerry Sussman, president of the South Florida Hotel Association, said it's too early to tell whether the city should invite the politicians back four years from now. Although hotel occupancy at Miami Beach was down 5 to 10 per cent in July and August, he said, the summer prvoed "we can take on any convention on the face of the earth." "I hope this will bear long- range fruit," said Sussman, manager of the Carillon Hotel. Hall said he only agreed to holding both conventions in Miami Beach because "this would establish our credibility as Convention Center U.S.A. if we handled them properly, and I believe we did." "Big deal," said John Malone, manager of a tire store near the Convention Center. "They get their share of conventions, they always have and they always will.

"It's like having a big party at your home and the next morning you wake up and say, 'Never again,'" said Gui Govaert, executive director of the Beach Tourist Development Authority which gave $250,000 to the Democrats and $100,000 to the Republicans. "Then the next day you invite another big party to your home for the Friday," he added. Hall said he might consider having both the Democratic and Republican national conventions back in Miami Beach only if "the federal government would consider putting several million dollars Into the city treasury so the city coud reduce taxes and repay the merchants somewhat." "National political conventions are a bust economically," he said. But Sussman said the problem this, summer was that people were looking at political conventions from the view of Chicago 1968.
