II is my understanding that in order to enroll a child in public school in Florida, you must either 1. pay tuition, 2. have Tlorida registration on your motor vehicle, 3. have filed a declaration of domicile. Am I correct? I enroll my child. I’m an out-of-state resident but own real properly here, which I live in, and buy Florida registration for my auto. However, to my idismay, students are being enrolled for periods of time without luition or Florida tags — tansients living in mobile trailer parks with no questions asked! I have checked with the county courthouse, only lo be advised that a student either must pay bullion, have filed for domicile, or have Florida tags. Who is supposed to enforce this and why isn’t it being enforced? No woiider our schools are overcrowded, with the legal residents carrying the load of taxes! What is the law? L.P., Naples A. First, are you correct? Yes, as far as you went. According to Florida Statutes, Chap. 228.121, tuition must be paid for a student unless I. He has lived in Florida for one year or longer; 2. His parent or guardian has purchased a home in Florida which is occupied as a residence; A manifestation of domicile in this county has been filed; 4. The parent or guardian is a migratory worker; 5. The parent or guardian is in federal military service; or 6. The parent or guardian is a federal civilian employe. And, of course, anyone moving here is sup-poscKl to get tags and a Florida driver's license immediately. Next, who is supposed to enforce this? The principal of each ..school is responsible for enforcing the state law and school 1x)ard policy which is based on the state law. Why isn’t the law being enforced? School administrators think it is and that the children you refer to belong in one of the exempted categories -like having migratory workers for parents. -FYI- Q. An article printed in the Feb. 18 issue of the Daily News told of an auto-ferry service between Louisville, Ky., and Central Florida, saying the service was initially scheduled lo start June I but may start a month earlier, according to an official of the Seaboard Coastline Railroad. Will you please give the address of Aulo-Train’s main office, which probably is in Washington, D.C.? G.M.P., Naples A. We don’t have Auto-Train’s address in Washington, but we do have a toll-free telephone number which should be better. It is 1-800-424-8520. -FYI- Q. Will you please help me, and I imagine many more, by explaining the leflhand turn regulations where there is a divided street such as the Trail? If one turns short, then the view of on-coming traffic is blocked by another car turning short. If one turns long, he can be blocked by a line waiting to turn left from the other direction. C. W. S., Naples. A. One more time - because we’ve had this same question before: Florida law, we understand, says (only not in these words!) that you turn “long”. If you’re going to keep to the right, that’s me only way you can do it. However, we see what you mean, because almost everybody turns left “short” on the Trail. There is confusion, but there shouldn’t be because the loft-turn procedure is the same for streets like the Trail its it is for any other street. If you still don’t understand, or have further questions, ask the Highway Patrol. -FYI- Note to people with pianos: Dick Kreisel of Kreisel Pianos and Organs, Fifth Avenue South, says he has had umpteen calls since our answer to Mrs. R. E. R. who wanted a suggestion to keep a piano dry. The piano is to be put in a recreation hall near the water and we asked Lars Svensen what he would recommend. He said he recommends damp chasers for all pianos in Naples, regardless of whether a building is air conditioned. Well, apparently Mr. Kreisel and Mr. Svensen don’t agree about damp chasers. Mr. Kreisel says the environment of the piano has to be considered individually before deciding a damp chaser is necessary, because they can do harm in some cases when a piano may actually be in a dry atmosphere and need water. So there you are. Mrs. R. said someone had suggested putting a light bulb inside the piano, but Mr. Kreisel said that would be dangerous to the lacquer. -FYI- P.S. to R.A. who wanted to know in a hurry whether Sonny and Cher would be in Florida this year. Rory Hiller at the Open Hearth tells us Sonny and Cher are scheduled to be at the Diplomat in Miami in March. But now that they’re separating and cancelling their TV show, he thinks they may also cancel engagements.

Lely Delay Unacceptable By BILL UPHAM Staff Writer “The consequences of not opening Lely High Sch(K)l on time are absolutely unacceptable,” Collier County Schoi)l B(Kird Chairman Roland B. Anderson told the Lely contractor at the regular schtKil board meeting Thursday. The contractor. Cassius Peacock, appeared before the boiird, as requested at the last meeting, lo inform board members of the progress on the new .schwl site. “We’re behind on ‘early’ completions according lo the CPM, but not necessarily behind on ‘late’ completions,” Peacock stated in his opening remarks. (The CPM is critical path of movement and is indicative of what progress has been accomplished.) Also appearing at the board meeting was Jack Wal-burg, architect for the project. Walburg maintained that the project, as indicated by the CPM, IS about five per cent along the way. He said it should be .'iO to 40 per cent complete putting the project at least .'iO to 45 days behind schedule on the CPM. Peacock did not disagree with the assertion that the project is behind schedule and when asked directly by Anderson if it would be complete by next school year he said, “It would be close to a miracle if we are complete by September.” “Complete” was later amended to mean ready for “beneficial occupancy” which Peacock felt to be a little more likely. However, Anderson directly attacked any negative thinking on this matter stating, “Don’t predict disaster now or that’s what will happen. If you predict failure, it will fail." Anderson continued the charge saying to Peacock, “You are responsible for performance. If there is a holdup, we want to know about it,” and again emphasized that failure would not be tolerated and that the school “must” open in September. Peacock suggested the school superintendent have an alternate plan in the event the school is not completed in time, but Anderson quickly cautioned Peacock on making any more negative statements. Peacock said one of the main factors affecting the CPM was a holdup on delivery «)f .some special door frames. Peacock agreed to work around the door frames to keep pace on the CPM, but the school board asked that he go one step further and try to make up some time by “going downstream” and compressing the work .schedules of the subcontractors. He said he did not want to deceive the board stating this would be very hard to do, but adopted Anderson’s philosophy to a certain degree and said he would “try”. School Superintendent Dr. William 0. Webb, as well as Walburg, offered all assistance from their respective offices in efforts to speed things up. Webb asked if it would help if the school board tried to speed up delivery of the door frames. Peacock said he doubted it, but said they were welcome to try. “Don’t call up there raising hell, though — this would only serve to be counterproductive.” Peacock was instructed by the board to work with the architect and school board in an effort to expedite construction and to report to a future meeting of the board on progress. Balloonist Near Africa WASHINGTON (AP) - Thomas Gatch Jr., attempting to become the first person to cross the Atlantic Ocean in a balloon, was expected to hit the northwest Africa Coast today, the Air Transport Association reported. Gatch was sighted by a ship early today about 1,200 miles west, southwest of Las Palmas off the Canary Islands after going unseen for more than a day, the association said. The ATA issued a statement in which it said the latest prediction by the National Weather Service would have the balloonist passing over the Canary Islands at 8 a.m. EOT and crossing the coast of Southern Morocco about 11 a.m. EDT. I Bidding Plans I Set For New Post Office Naples’ prospective new post office building will be advertised for bids about April 1, according to Rep. L. A. (Skip) Bafalis, R-Fla. Bafalis said 30 days will be allowed for bids to come in and a contract should be let 15 days after that, or about May 15. The 10th District congressman contacted the U. S. Postal Service after a Daily News editorial of Feb. 12 urged him to "take one more shot” at trying to get the governmental red tape unsnarled to clear the way for the local postal facility. The editorial pointed out that Neapolitans have been waiting for a new post office for three years, only to be told recently by the USPS there would be another delay. The holdup wasn't exactly a delay, Bafalis said he was told by the USPS, but a routine matter to clear the way for bid advertisement. The USPS had to consult the Department of Labor for a statement of construction wages in the area and the federal government wants to make sure there is no discrimination in employment, etc. The approximately 40,000-square-foot building is expected to take about one year to complete, Bafalis said. Plans are to construct the facility on a parcel of land containing 197,168 square feet located at Goodlette Road and 13th Avenue North. Hijacking Fails But 3 Persons Killed BALTIMORE. Md. (AP) -Three persons were killed today during an apparent hijacking attempt at Baltimore-Washington International Airport, the Federal Aviation Administration said. A gunman and an airport security guard were shot and killed at the scene. The copilot of the Delta DC9 that was the target of the hijacker died about three hours later at a Baltimore hospital, the hospital said. The plane’s pilot was seriously wounded in the shooting, according to Anne Arundel County police, and was undergoing surgery. A stewardess who jumped from the plane during the incident hurt her back, authorities said, adding that the plane’s passengers escaped in-jury. Police said an unidentified object was under a bomb blanket at the edge of the runway. It was not immediately known whether the object had been taken off the plane. The FBI, state police, county and airport police were searching the airport with bomb-sniffing dogs after sealing off the area where the shooting occurred. Flight 52.'} to Atlanta was apparently loaded with 70 passen- gers when the incident began to unfold at 7:03 a.m. County police described it as follows; The gunman, identified only as a white male, walked up behind the unidentified airport policeman, pulled a gun and shot him once in the back, killing him. Two county policemen in the airport heard the shots and ran toward the boarding area, where they saw the gunman running down the jetway and onto the plane. Officer Charles Toyer of county police said he got to the plane as the door was closing and the engines wee being revved up. Toyer said he fired two shots at the plane’s tires but thought he missed. Observers, however, later spotted two flat tires in the front of the plane. Toyer said he then ran to the front of the plane and, looking through the windows of the cockpit, saw the gunman shoot the pilot and copilot. Toyer said he then opened fire and shot the gunman, who was pronounced dead on arrival at a hospital. The copilot was identified by the FAA as Fred Jones of Dallas. Authorities said he had suffered gunshot wounds in the head and chest. The pjlot, Capt. Doug Lofton of Ft. Worth, underwent surgery at University for bullet wounds of the back and left shoulder, the spokesmen said. ON THE BLOCK? — The liner, France, the world’s largest passenger ship and a seagoing white elephant, reportedly is going to be sold, possibly to the Soviet Union or China. The newspaper France Soir in Paris issued the report which AP Wirephoio came on the heels of denials and contradictions indicating that the government was thinking of how to get rid of the ship. Prices Jump WASHINGTON (AP) - With food and fuel costs soaring, consumer prices jumped sharply in January, the government said today. No immediate letup was in sight. The Labor Department reported that consumer prices increased by a seasonally adjusted one per cent last month, with food and fuel costs accounting for about 80 per cent of the rise. C The January increase put consumer prices 9.4 per cwt higher than a year ago, the sharpest leap in the cost of ftv-ing in any 12-month pei^d since that ending May 1951.« The report showed that ui-flationary pressures wi^e strong across the economy.
