Arvida Rebuts Opposition To Resort Hotel The residents of the Sands Bay Condominium , represented by Attorney John Griffis, presented a list of nine objections to Arvida's proposed resort hotel complex to the Commissioners at Tuesday's workshop. Ask For "Quiet" Pile Driver They objected to (I) the entrance road, saying that the Sands Bay residents should not have to drive through a hotel to get to their condominium, and (2) the proposed buffer, claiming that the closest part of the hotel complex would be only 25 feet away. (They want it extended to 50 feet.) (Continued on Page 9)

Along State Street By JOHN SLACK Special to The Boston Herald American Reprinted with permission Persian Gulf Investment Opportunit ies The fighting between Iran and Iraq has once again fo~used .t~e ~nancial world 's attention on the dangerous Instablhty In the Persian Gulf. . The Persian Gulf is no stranger to these Q()lumns because m?st investors have become acutely). ~re of the dangers It poses to the West's economies tattJ markets and thus, to their investments. T he present conflict serves as another vivid reminder of the imperative need to develop other more stable, energy sources. And it answers a question asked abo ut a recent column- What has Australia got to do with Wall Street? .... The answer , of course, is that investors have been anticipating with their money that the development of the vast resources in Australia will be accelerated as the West struggles to get out from under the threat of a sudden, crippli ng interruption of the Middle Eastern oil flow. Since the fall and flight of the Shah the West' s in fluenc~ in t~~ Persian ~ul f and the stabiii'ty created by the Shah s military machme has disappeared . T he disintegration of the Iranian armed fo rces through lack of spare parts for their American-built equipment and the nation's internal political turmoil made it only a question of t.ime before Iraq would feel strong enough to move agamst Iran. The Iraqis are moving to settle some old scores, of course, but their ultimate goal is to become the dominant and controlling nation in the Gulf.

Report From ...

ANDY IRELAND 8th District Congressman · Florida

On September 19, 1980, the President signed into law S. 299, the Regulatory FlexibililY Act. I originally introduced this concept in the House of Representatives in 1 .97~. After three years of hearings, meetings, and nego.tlallons, we have reached a compromise which is S. 299: I was honored to make the followi ng remarks at the White House when the Bill was signed into law: ' :Mr. President. distinguished members of Congress, ladles and gent lemen, it is so nice to see a dream come true. When I introduced the concept of regu latory flexib i.iity fo r small business in the House in 1978, I knew It would be a long struggle to see it en<?cted. With the help of the fr iends of America's small businesses, most of whom are here today, that becomes a reality. We have thrown a regulatory lifeline to the millions of small businesses, organ izations, and small governmental units which have been slowly sinking under an ocean of federal regulation and paperwork. P resident Carter put us on the right road last year when he introduced an executive memorandum encouraging the use of regulatory flexibility. Now we have all joined together and have put it into the law of the land. (Continued on Page 19)

Dear Editor: An article on Page 4 in your September 8th edition indicates that the lower end of Longboat Key may get spoil from a future dredging of New Pass, so why not? It left Longboat due to a phenomenom that authorities continue to ignore. Because of publicity and pictures lately, one would t hink thaI some laymen would begin . to see solutions to erosio n woes in that, and other areas. Erosion, in the vicinity of bridges, causeways and island ends is an everpresent problem. Its symptoms are quite apparent but answers are not sought very diligently, I ask why? We see dredging operations that return the sediment to the beaches and swash channels whence it came, but no effort is put forth to prevent it from leaving the beaches where it should stay. It is considered a proper technique to narrow t he inlets and it becomes a Venturi when tides run fast, in or out ... To prevent erosion on the lower pan of Longboat a st~aigh t revetment in fr ont of Sands Point merging into a Jetty that would have a Gulfwa rd end angling upbeach could have many benefits for boaters. fishermen and swimmers. as the swash channel would disappear and naturally nourished slopi ng beach would soon be developing. capable of withstanding almost any wave that a storm cou ld drive at Longboat Key. For example, Bal Harbour's overcurved massive jetty already protecting Miami Beach before the multimillion dollar beach nourishment was started and the Jetty is now preventing precious sand from being drawn Into Bakers Haulover. Another curved jetty has done a wonderful jo b at Clearwater' s Sand Key, and I believe that New Pass needs a curved jetty as well. Henry H. Szonnell Bradenton

The Comstock Load By JIM COMSTOCK Reprinted with permissionjrom The West Virginia Hillbilly E.R.A. And M. I have listened to all sides in t he matter of E. R.A., i.e ., complete equality of women with men, and I have come to the conclusion that I am not only a confirmed E. R.A.ist, but for good Methodist measure I want to add one, which will ma ke all women happy and which men won 't want. I not only think that women should have the right to bear arms, and fi ght in ail our wars, and in keeping with the American pattern of giving rights and retroactively rewarding .the one discriminated against, 1 think only women should fight in all the wars that America is engaged in for the next 200 years, and that all living soldiery o f past wars be compensated for time spent defendi ng this country while women stayed at home and did nothing but rivet some guns together and keep kids fed and clothed and shod with their ration books. Also, women should work on any job that man has customarily been performing. I shall work fo r-:'.l rewriting of the American document by some cale chauvinist and make it say "all persons" are born equal. Then when all these rights are granter ~ant to ad""d one more for women, the one for M~st measure that I mentioned. I want every female to have the right to reject ail or any of these rights and to live in the tradition of womanhood if she wants to, to be a stick-inthe-mud housewife, have doors opened for her, cloaks flung in puddles for her to walk on. In summary, give the fema le every right the male has plus the right to reject them all and not be tittered at or discriminated

(Continued from Page 1) the position that the beach below mean high water is public beach and since that is where they feel {he sand came from, that is where they would like the New Pass sand deposited. The crux of the mauer is the creat ion of an Erosion Cont ro l Line. Th is is a surveyed line which has been established on the north end of Longboat for a few thousand years, but has not been drawn on the

southern end. The li ne closely parallels the mean high water line bUI is clearly established. and must have the ap prova~'\he owner of the land. Withdb.....<n Erosion Control Line, the owner gambles that his shore line will accrete not erode, and he will then own the newly bui ll up below the new mean high water mark. But if the sea erodes whole hunks of his ow n shore line, he has no recourse and cannot legally ::;...'S tore the shore line.

Gambling With Nature I f he agrees to an Erosion Control Line as most of the owners di d on the north end of the Key, then the owner does not own the land that is formed by accretion, but he may restore the land that erodes. Actually, he may receive spoil fro m local dredging if it is close enough to suit the US Army Corps of Engineers. Which means, at no added expense to them in terms of extended pipes. The last time Longboat Pass was dredged, the spoil was pumped along all land on the north end that had agreed to an Erosion Control Line. Colonel Furbee is expected to ex plain how an erosion cont rol line is formed, it s advantages, a nd disadvantages and when New Pass will be dredged. The best guess is ea rly next winter.

Constitutional Amendment No.3 Nov. 4,1980 Ballot "Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to provide that the publication oj the title oj a Bill in thl! Legislative Journals shall serve as the first oj the three readings required by the Stale Constitution . .. This measure gives the legislature authority to permit that first reading of a bill be accomplished by publication of the title of the bill in the journal. Currently a clerk must read all bill titles for first reading .often fulfilling this requirement by reciting titles to an empty chamber. Requiring an individual to read bill titles to an empty chamber is nOt one of the more judicious uses of employee time especially when publication in a journal serves the purpose. The league of Women Voters has a position calling for simplified procedures for the passage of bills and therefore does support the passage of this amendment. (We do question the need for this kind of procedural matter in the Constitution which should be free from statuatory detail; however, since it is already ther~, this will help simplify the matter.) -

ireline Emergency Medical Services · Medic Alert In the field of modern emergency medicine, Medic Alert stands as the mOSI universally recognized system of emergency medical identification in the w~rld. Nearly 1.5 million people, including 960,000 Am.encans who have hidden medical conditions, now enJoy the prOle<:tion afforded by Medic Alert. Why this success? The non profit, charitable

system helps ensure fast and safe handling of patients and enables emergency personnel to avert critical complications caused by hidden health problems. This nation 's most common hidden medical problems are cardiovascular disease, epilepsy, diabetes, and allergies to penicillin, su lfa drugs, local anesthetics, pain killers, and other commonly used drugs. Another major concern are the wearers of contact lenses who may be . subject to dangerous corneal abrasion of lenses in place go undetected in an emergency. Other special medical situations which emergency medical personnel should know about include implanted pacemakers, glaucoma, asthma, emphysema, or the fact that the individual takes anticoagu lants, antidysrhyt hmic cardia drugs. cortisone, steroids. or antibuse.

jectives: to provide a lifetime of reliable pro~ection al a onetime fee and assure that emergency medIcal professionals would recognize t he importance of Medic Alert. The system is relatively simple. Each member wears a

metallic alerting device worn as a bracelet or neck lace. The face of the emblem bears the nationally recognized insignia of the medical profession and the words "MED IC ALERT" in red. The reverse side of the emblem has three vitally important pieces of informat.ion engraved on it. I. The wearer's health problem or problems. 2. The unique registry number of the wearer which identifies him in the foundation 's Cent ral Registry. 3. The phone number of the Foundation's 24-hour collect call emergency hot line.

Each member also carries a wallet card issued annually wh ich insures up-to-date personal and medical information. Within seconds upon the arri val of the Longboat Key Rescue Squad at an emergency on the Key, our squad will immediately observe if the victim is wearing a Medic Alert bracelet or necklace. The use of the Medic Alert

With the rate of Medic Alert' s growth increasing with each passi ng week, the need is critical for Medic Alert and the Longboat Key Rescue Squad to work closely. Through this teamwork, the mutual object ives will be met: assuring that our citizens receive the best medical care possible in critical emergency medical situations. For further information about Medic Alert 's life-saving system, write: Medic Alert, Box 1009, Turlock . California 95380. If you have any of the above listed medical problems, the Longboat Key Rescue Squad urges you to obtai n a Medic Alert bracelet or necklace to more efficient ly serve you in a critical emergency.

Arvida Rebuts . ..•....... (Continued from Page 1) They were worried that the construction would be (3) too noisy, and asked that Arvida be made to use "Quiet" pile drivers. Also, they asked that (4) the hotel's commercial operations (such as check·in, tennis, etc.) be confined to the hotel site. (Present plans call for hotel guests' check·in at the entrance gate.) Circumventing Law? Othe~'" ~.tCts were that. (5) the blank areas of the conceptt\...rplan are not filled in so they don't know what is going to be put in adjoining areas; (6) Arvida is asking for too many variances; and (7) that Arvida is not conforming to the law, - selling the hotel units as residential condominiums and yet using the parking .J:atio that applies to hotels, not condomin iums. .. Sands Bay residents also feel that they (8) have the right to know how the hotel is going to be run, and (9) that the law that provides for consideration of "adverse effects on other condominiums" be considered in their case. Urge No Site Approval Griffis claimed that ali of these problems are caused by Arvida's "trying to sq ueeze too many units into too small a space." He asked the Commission to grant no site plan approval until these issues are resolved. Arvlda Answers Arvida's top man, Ed Kosnik, rose to present the rebuttal. His answers were the same points that Arvida has been using since the beginning of the hotel plan consideration . The entrance road, he said, was designed to create a "residential feeling" and the Sands Bay people would not feel that they are driving through a hotel but rather _"entering a Quiet residential neighborhood. ,. "Residential" Feeling Arvida will be happy to use the least noisy pile driver they can find, he agreed, provided it doesn't cost 2 or 3 times as much as a regu lar pile driver. Also, he noted that Arvida is deliberately locating the check·in at the entrance so there will not be a big group of cars at the door to its central facility. This, he said, will add to the residential feeling. Not Maximum Density Kosnik also C'laimed, as he has in the past, that Arvida is not trying to squeeze in every possible unit that the space allows. Some of the units are only I bedroom, he pointed out, whereas 2 bedroom units would be permitted. Some are studio units of only 700 square feet, - much smaller than allowed. Taking all of these things into consideration , he said, they actually have a comparable density of 10 units per ... acre, whereas the density in surrounding areas is 17 units per acre.

.

Stili A Stand-oil When the Commission started to talk about the plan, it was clear that nothing has changed: the same stand· off still exists that has been there from the beginning. The Commissioners still are hoping that A rvida will consider using an additional 10 acres for their hotel complex. Arvida is S1i11 saying "no," noting that its plans are within the Town·imposed density schedule. None In Favor Commissioner AI Lewin is concerned about the large convemion groups t hat the hotel might attract. Commissioner Sam Seegel is threat~ning to charge that Arvida has " misled" the Tow'n on its density. Commissioner Russ Fernald is against Arvida's reserving the right to serve drinks and food on the beach. In fact, judgi ng from their comments, there is not a single Comn:tissioner who is in favor of Arvida's plan as it has been presented. Town Manager Wayne Allgire urged them to get working on a settlement, noting that they are still asking the same questions and getting the same answers as when he went on vacation 3 weeks ago. Beaches Owner In Person In other action, the Commission finally got an answer to its often-asked question of who owns the Beaches of Longboat, proposed condom inium in Arvida's PUD. Attorney Harvey Abel presented the new owner in person: Herman Vonhoff, a tall, well-spoken native of Holland who is president of Blue Ridge Mountains, Inc., which, he said, is a subsidiary of a large Dutch pension trust.

Solid Dutch Firm Abel explained that the mix-up as to who the owner was had occurred during a recent re·financing. The lender (the Dutch pension trust) is the sole owner, he said. And he described the pension trust as the second largest in Holland, to which 325,000 Dutch medical personnel belong, claiming assets of $4Yl billion. It is the same firm which is a partner in the 888 Blvd. O f The Arts complex now going up near the Hyatt House in Sarasota. The Commission agreed to discuss the new growth agreement (permitting construction of 155 units in each of the next 2 years), with certain conditions, at its Wednesday night special meeting. Henco Plans "All New" The Commission also was presented with a new, revised set of plans for the previously proposed (and previously refused) condominium near Whitney Beach. Since the case is present ly in litigation, the Commissioners weren't su re whether they should look at the new plans or not. Town Attorney Welch Whitesell explained that it would be all right, since they were being presented by the developer (Henco, Inc.) in hopes of reaching a settlement out of court.

By June Wisby

Want to scare yourself blue? Li ke to get a chill without even turning the air conditioner on? If you do, then read Ruth Montgomery's book "Strangers Among Us". T his may be too heady reading for anyone unacquainted with metaphysics. However, it seems nearly impossible that anybody is now ignorant of it, with the great numbers of books being written nOw on this and related subjects, (such as the Seth books by Jane Roberts which deal with life beyond this plane) and the burgeoning numbers of spiritual centers now quietly teaching metaphysical learning. Incidentally, metaphysics merely means "beyond the physical" and occult means "secret or hidden". Ruth Montgomery claims that her books are written automatically, with spirit guides from a higher plane giving her the thoughts to type up. The strangers her book refers to are "walk-ins", and they are souls from the 6th dimension who are incarnating into bodies already here. They haven't the time to go through the birth and youth channels, as in an ordinary incarnation . Instead , they make a deal with a person who is contemplating suicide, or who is weary of this life. The departing soul vacates the body and the " walk-in" assumes it, taking on the karmic obligations. The new soul uses the old personality, but friend s are astonished at how "old George" has finally got it altogether" and is so much smarter , kinder, and helpful, etc. Apparently there are a lot of "walk-ins" here already, and many more on the way. Their purpose is to help us through the next 20 years, which according to the book, shouldn 't happen to a dog . The first catastrophe will be an American president who ruins the county financially and militarily. This will be followed by a nasty nuclear war in Asia, the MidEast and Europe. This need not be inevitable, if enough people will pray and work toward peace and understanding. However, the "guides" are gloomy at this pros pect, believing that there are (00 man y materialistic, greedy, selfish and unloving people in the world today. (Can we argue about this?) All this is just to soften us up fo r the switching of the magnetic poles about the year 2000! I had just seen in the newspaper, a few days before reading the book, an article saying that scient ists found the magnetic pole in the North was wavering around, and that they believe the earth has changed poles about 176 times. The only note of cheer in this, is that at my age , chances are I won't be here while Canada slides down to where the U.S. is now, and Florida disappears under the sea, and islands arise from the oceans. Are you scared? Do you believe it? I don't know, myself, if it's true, but just in case, I plan to be VERY good! I'll think only loving positive thoughts, and pray for peace and a quick slide to glory, if that' s my destiny!

by Kevin Dean

A Conversation With Michael A. Smith The first show of the 1980-81 season at the Ringling Museum of Art's modern wing is a large exhibition of the photographs of Michael A. Smith. Smith, who is 38 and originally from Philadelphia, spent the last five years in the deserts, mountains, forests and seashores of the American West, recording what he saw in a rather unconventional manner. A Smith photograph stresses formal interests over subject matter. He avoids the romantic view of nature and searches instead for a unity in the endless variety of the Western landscape. His pictures are not of something, they are something. Smith and I talked while roaming around the two large rooms that are filled with 267 examples of his work. He was quite pleased with the show. The exhibit was beautifully mounted by 20th Century curator, Michael Auping and his staff. This is the first time Smith has had the opportunity to see so much of his work exhibited in one place. The following is part of what Michael A. Smith had to say about his work and attitudes towards the art of photography. Kevin Dean - In a 1978 review for" Art in America," Sally Eauctalre stated that since you otlen show no horizon, and both the foreground and background are in focus, your photographs tend to lIaHen the picture plane. But when I was talking to Elayne Varian about your work earlier this year, she said that she felt one could visually enter tbe photographs beause the space seemed so real . Which one of these contradictory statements do you agree with? Michael A. Smith - Actually, both are true. If you step back from the work and look at it at a distance, the space, for the most part, is not recessive. The things farthest away in the photograph seem to come forward. There is one picture in the show where clearly the space goes back. l 'U leave it to the viewer to discover which one it is. . So on the one hand, Sally Eauclaire was right, my 'Concern is a formal concern - the compression of space, the interest in the picture as a picture rather than what is pictured. However, it 's nice that someone can see the clarity of them and get involved with the particularness of the work too, like Elayne did. It 's good not to cut off that experience. Smith's Methods K.D. - You use only contact prints. Would you explain what exactly a contact print is and why you use them? M.A.S . - The negatives are the same size as the prints. There is no enlargement so you get the maximum amount of clarity and the maximum amount of sharpness. There is also a fuller tonal range with contact papers than with enlargement papers. The prints tend to have more of a presence to them because the contact paper is better than the enlargement papers available today. Almost all of the prints in the show are 8xlO or 8x20 contact prints. Nothing has been enlarged. K.D . • That means that the composing was done in tbe viewfinder of the camera. M.A.S. - Absolutely . There is no cropping or trimming, this is exactly what 1 saw. K.D. - You are nry aware of the edges, then. M.A.S. - Yes, very aware of the edges. K.D •• Where did you find a camera that used 8xlO negatives? M.A.S . . In Philadelphia. There was some used equipment for sale and ... well . it's a long story ... I bought it for $15.00. K.D. - Are cameras like tbat nry rare now? M.A.S. - I guess they have always been rare. Composition And Attitudes K.D_ - Most of your photographs are on the horizon· tal rather tbaD on the vertical. What are your reasons for preferring horizontal pictures? M.A.S. - It just seems to work out that way. It's not a predetermined kind of thing. I see more in the horizontal than in the vertical. But there is more to it than that. It renects my lack of concern for the monumental, and interest with the total pictorial space. Verticality tends to emphasize objects against a ground, whereas, I like to treat everything equally . In many of these photographs you will find an equal emphasis given to all areas. K.D. - So you are working against the Kodak camera owner's manual idea that there must always be somethiqg .dolPlnanl.l.... gqqd ~icture.

K.D. - Do you always use the location that the photograph was taken as a name for the print? M.A.S .. Yes, there are no "Sunset" or "Springtime Fantasies" or names like that. The titles are very dry, which leaves the options open for the viewer. They are non-directive tilles. K.D. - Do you take '8 lot more shots than you actually print? M.A.S . . Yes and no. Just about everything that comes out, everything that wasn't fogged, out of focus or damaged is printed. This show contains a selection of photographs taken between 1975 and 1980. There are 267 of them here, but there must be five or six times that many pictures from the same period. A lot of them haven't been printed yet. K.D. - Do you do much altering in the dark room? M.A.S. - As needed. I like my prints to be even, unified from edge to edge so that things don't jump out. So I tend to lighten dark areas and darken light areas, but I don 't do so-called expressive prints. Subject Matter K.D. - Most of the photographs in the exhibit are of one pari of the country . Do you prefer the Western landscape to all others? M.A.S. - Well, most of these were done in the Southwest and Northwest. I hadn't been west in some years and in 1975 I just decided it was time to go out there and take some pictures. The one advantage it does have is height. I seem to like photographing from high places looking down . K.D. - Have you ever nperimented with color? M.A .S. - No, I have no interest in it. 1 love the world in color, but in a photograph, unless the color is manipUlated, it's too real. I have no interest in recreating the world or in giving people the experience of the landscape in my work. Rather, my concern is with the experience of the photograph itself. I'm not involved with the subject. It's not a matter of if I like the desert or not, that's irrelevant as far as I'm concerned. Right now I'm photographing the city, and some day my city photographs will be shown together with the landscapes. You'll see the same kinds of things going on. K.D .• Do you try to sboot when there are not too many people on the streets In tbe new pictures? M.A.S. - No, there are people in them, I photograph people, too. I don't look at myself as just a landscape photographer, it's simply that for this particular period that the show covers, most of the work was of the landscape. K.D . • Thank you, 'Mister Smith. The photographs of Michael A. Smith will be on display through the month of October. His work is also available through the Image Gallery, which will be transferring its photography shows to the new Steven Katzman Gallery in November. • ART

Green Genie Gallery Collages by Marvin Saruk The practice of attaching everything from newspaper to nails to canvas and cardboard goes back to Picasso and Braque's experiments with mixed media, which began in earnest around 1911. Some claim that the first collage was produced by Picasso in response to a critic's complaint that the artist's work was losing contact with reality. By attaching a piece of a Parisian newspaper to one of his cubist drawings, Picasso brought reality into a work of art in a way that was to have a lasting pro· found effect on both the practice and theory of contemporary art.

Unusual Collages The collages of Marvin Saruk are, in some ways, similar to the collages of Picasso. Saruk combines objects - bits of newspaper, wrappings, envelopes, tags, cardboard, burlap sacks, string and the like - with paint, ink and oil crayon. He also uses words that are stenciled, written or form ed from letters that have been cut out of thin cotton material and then blended into the total composition. Meaning comes from three areas in Saruk's work. The paint, which is applied in washes in a painterly manner, provides an impression and emotional response, the objects make references to the real world and the words provide another mental image and give clues to the artist's thoughts. The compositional structure of the collages reinforce all three. Works Quickly The show is called "France Remembered." Saruk bases his imagery on anecdotes and impressions of his days as an expatriate American living in France. To capture these fleeting moments in time, he works quickly allowing a great deal of intuition to come into play . The results may be less accessible than some of his earlier work due to the personal nature of the collages and their ostensibly less polished appearance.

French Titles Standouts in the show include two ink and cardboard collages on paper ("Pour Michael " and " L'Affiche"), "Je Me Souviens Giverny," the largest painting in the exhibit; and "Le Facheur Va Arriver." The Green Genie Gallery is located on the second 1!,0..k~ j~~~~~~\'S h oft building at 318 12th Stree!

Guest Artist from Asolo, Porter Anderson as Francois Vilion talks with Laura Breeze as Huguette on Ihe eve of the Burgundian .elge of Paris In the Player's' season opener, "The Vagabond King".

THEATER

The Players ot Sarasota "The Vagabond King" Operetta fans must be in Rudolph Friml heaven. For the third time this year, a Sarasota theater company bas produced one of these old tonsil tinglers . The first was "The Student Prince" at the Players, the second, "The Desert Song," was staged at the Golden Apple and n?w the Players strike again with the W.H. Post, Bnan Hooker, Rudolph Friml classic, "The Vagabond King." The Plot This musical version of Justin Huntley McCarthy's "If 1 Were King" was first produced on Broadway in 1925 and played for 51t performances The story involves the 15th century French poet·bandit Francois Villon's fictiona l lust for Lady Katherine de Vaucelles, a member of the court of Louis XI, the French King, who became known as the Universal Spider because of his love of intrigue. Writers Post and Hooker have Louis spin his web around the roguish Villon by making him "king for a day" after the poet insults the mO!larch.'s ab.ility to govern. At the end of his 24 hour reign V~llon IS to be hung if he has not won the love of Kathenne. In true operatic style, Louis' arch enemy, Charles the Bold of Burgundy, chooses this day to attack the capital, but Vilion managers to rout the devil with the help of his friends, who are collectively known as "the rabble of Paris." Space does not permit a thorough examin~tion of all the plot details or how all of this winds ''!p In a ~appy ending. Suffice it to say that the play ~ehes heavlly.on the audience's willingness to go along WIth the fantaSIes. You either go with the now, or drown in the historical liberties. All for fun and fun for all and that sort of thing. The Players The Players do a pretty good job with this rather demanding business. They were fortunate to ~ecruit the services of some very capable local talent to fIll the major roles. Most notably, Ann Solley, who has both the voice and the opera background that is necessary for the part of Katherine, and Porter Ander.son, a recenl graduate of the Asolo Conservatory. HIS portrayal of George Bernard Shaw was the highlight of the 1979 Conservatory one-man-shows. He is excellent as the dashing Villon. Laura Breeze is good in her role as Huguette, one of the rabble and a lady with the terminal hots for Francois. Chip Coffey had a tendency to overdo it in Act I, but toned it down in the second act, giving the king the proper aloofness without crossing the line into caricature. Sam McDowell provides the comic relief as Villon's. friend Tabarie and Robin Allison, who also possesses a fine'voice and a nair for musical comedies~LAC..~vides good support as Lady Mary . The rest of the cr: ,iwhich is primarily made up of community theater vet'trans, do well enough with the material. There is also some decent dancing from members of the Florida West Coast Dance Company. All in all, " The Vagabond King" provides a good evening of entertainment. Some of the sc.enes could use some polishing, especially those that mvolve sword play. But this is community theater .and the h0':lrs of work donated by the cast and crew IS apparent m the production. so we will leave it at that. For reservations, contact the Players of Sarasota at 365-2494. •


FILM

Sta~st Memories:

The Sad-Comic Lament of Woody Allen -. There is a nashback scene in Woody Allen's "Annie Hall" in which the nine-year--old Alv)' Si nger (alias Woody Allen as a child) is ta ken to a doctor's office by his mother because he refuses (0 do his homework . When asked why, Alv)' replies, " I read in a book that the unvierse is expanding and it will eventually ny apart - so what's the point?" In "Stardust Memories," Sandy Bates (Allen again , this time he has typecast himself as a successful film maker) says to a group of associates, " Did anybody see that piece in the Times about how matter is decaying and that the universe is falling apart? Preuy soon there is going to be nothing left, so what di fference do my films make. There's going to be no Beethooven, nothing. " Movie Says More Questions about li fe, deat h, love, relationships, the uselessness of existence and the relative insignificance of even the greatest contemporary creative endeavors _ including his own -:- are topics that have been dear to Allen for a long time. BUI never have they been so pointedly presented as they are in "Stardust Memories," Wood y Allen's latest auempt at cinematic self analysis. This is a sly and complicated film that is woven together with fantasies , flashbacks, remembrances and films within a film, which is in turn within a film. Yet at the same time, the story is sim ple. Sandy Bates, revered maker of comedy movies, begrudgingly goes to a film fest ival held in his honor and is besieged by fans, critics, students, teachers, studio bosses, chari ty representatives and the memories the old Hotel Stardust evokes. It blends the moodiness of " Interiors" with the impressive black and white photography of "Manhattan," the fu ll range of Allenesque comedy styles found in "Annie Hall," and the imaginative absurdities of his earlier films. The resu lt is a movie that is sometimes funny and at other times poignant. Woody Allen, Cinema Commando Critics have been quick to point out the mocking tone of "Stardust Memories." Instead of just whining about all the people who are demanding everything from personal articles for charity auctions to a return to the funny movies he used to make, Allen presents his pursuers as absurd though recognizable caricatures. But can we really blame him for biting the hand that feed s him? Where is it written that fam e must always be paid for with a loss of privacy?

More Than What Meets The Rear There is much more going on here than just Woody Allen giving everyone a swift kick in our collective posterior. "Stardust Memories" is a beautiful thing to loo k at (Gordon Willis was the photographer), the score, which includes the music of Ojango Rheinhardt, Glenn Miller, and Louie Armstrong, is excellent. The gags are as good as ever, even if there are fewer of them. And the acting, writing and di recting are all very strong. ., There are a lot of traps in "Stardust Memories" for people who will try to analyze it in minute details. The trick is to figure out which scenes are meant to be taken seriously, and which are not . There are throwaway jokes and seemingl y serious situat ions that add nothing to the film s statements. Others do. This flipping back and forth between the significant and the insignificant begins in the opening sequences of st udio heads screening Sandy Bates' new dramatic film ("Why doesn't he just do comedies?"), to (he end in which Sandy accepts a posthumous award in front of a rear projection screen showing boili ng lava and thunderJHorms.

Will The Real Woody Allen Please .... Allen is a [0[ like his work. He wants to be taken seriously and to make important films. But he knows ~bing so mea ns to accept that in the face of world misery, making a 90 minute film . can still have t gnificance, something he apparcntly has a great deal of.difficult y in doing. If Allen can't find anything meaningful in what he does for a living, how can we .,<peet hi~t to be suspicious of people who do? - Of COUl.... ",II of this is so much speculation on our - <part, but "Stardust Memories" seems clearly to be a sad-comic lament of an artist who is confused, frustrated and unsure of where to go now that he has achieved that double-edged sword called success. Last Week "Stardust Memories" had on ly a week run at the Bayshore Cinema, bu t it shou ld return to the second run theaters if the pattern of distribution around here stays cpnsistent. .,., ' .• ~ .

"Private Benjamin" Goldie Hawn, Eillen Brennan and Barbara Barrie Directed by How.rd 21eft

••

" Private Benjamin, " the film that asks the question, " What if Beetle Bailey were a jewish princess'?" The first thing you have to accept when watching this fil m is that anyone, even a naive child-woman who is distraught over the fact that her new husband had a heart attack and died while they were making love on their wedding night, is gullible enough to believe an army recruiter when he tells them that the new army has condos and a fleet o f yachts for the exclusive use of the privates. If you can buy that, then you will be able to handle the rest o f this movie with no problems at all. Little Girl Found Actually, it is n't as bad as it sounds. The army routine (and the business with the army is routine, you've seen it all before) is just a gimmick around which is built a story about a girl who grows up dependent on everyone else but hersel f comes of age a nd gains both her freedom and self respect. Throughout the film, Goldie Hawn's character is surrounded by two-legged st inkers - her fat her, husbands, commanding officers, a fiance, etc. - who want to take, but give only material lokens in ret urn. One is tempted to cheer when she finally wises up. The production values are competent to good, and the cast, headlined by Goldie Hawn as Judy Benjamin, Eileen Brennan as her captain and Barbara Barrie as her mother, are fine. The film never does much more than the expecled, but it's reasonably good light entertainment. DeSOtO Square Mall. Gulf Gate Cinema

" Terror Train" Jamie Lee Curtis and Ben Johnson Directed by Roger Spottlswoode

Still another in that seem ingly endless line of lowbudget lunatic slasher movies. This one is about a bunch of frat rats who accidently drive one of their brothers crazy by tricking him into kissing a corpse from the medical school disecling lab. Funny guys. Three years later their dirty deed comes back to haunt them during what was supposed to be a fun-filled weekend on an excursion steam train . The zany sneaks aboard as one of the costumed merry-makers and proceeds 10 chop up his enemies one by one. Jamie Lee Curtis, actress and professional victim-lObe, is on hand again to provide the screaming. So are the usuaJ cast of unknowns playing the pincushions, and the star - this time it.'s Ben Johnson - 10 make it all seem legitimate. Any way you cut it , it's still garbage, and not very good garbage at that. There are few thrills and chills in the story which ro lls along in a manner now so predictable that it goe~ beyond being just boring. DeSoto Sq uare Mall

"Ordinary People" . Donald Sutherland, Mary Tyler Moore, Judd Hirsch and Timothy Hulton Directed by Robert Redford

***'h This is one good movie. The acting from Mary Tyler Moore, Donald Sutherland, Judd Hirsch, and newcomer, Timothy Hulton (son of the late Jim Hutton) is first rate. In his first directorial effort, Robert Redford effectively tells much of the story with the camera, and Alvin Sargent's screenplay (from Judith Guest's best-selli ng novel) wisely allows Redford the room to do it. Simpl y stated, "Ord inary People" is about a nice, upper middle class family from Lake Forest, Illinois. But the weaknesses of this seemingly perfect little family come to the su rface after the oldest son drowns in a boating accident and the surviving son attempts su icide because of the guilt he feels for being unable to save him . At least that's what everyone thinks. The real reasons for the attempt go much deeper. It would be a mistake to reveal any more of this film's plot to people who have not read the book. Suffice it co say that it is one of those must-see movies that needs co be seen by ordi nary people. Cortez Plaza, Bradento n, Sarasota Square, Sarasota

Marine Art Exhibit At Selby The Museum of Botany and the Arts at the Marie Selby Gardens has a new exh ibition of paintings by Venice (Florida) artist, William H. Brown, Jr. Marine life from the bay and gulf waters of Florida encircle the large room with underwater realism. Aquatic blue shades provide the environment for the approximately 45 species of marine fishes. Florida's Tropical Waters In "The Cleaning Station" (1978), large fishes come to be picked clean of parasites by smaller fishes. The symbiotic process, wherein both parties benefit from the special interrelationship, is known as mutualism. Bluehe~d Wrasses (Labridae), Neon Gobies (Gobiidae),:, Trunkflshes (Ostraciontidae), and the Yellow Goat fi sh (Mulloidichthys Martinicus) are JUSt a few of the fishes in this painting, which also includes various corals algae and sea urchins (black and white species) which add to the unspoiled world of our native tropical waters of Florida. The artist has long been an environmentalist who works at capturing the beauty of underwater animal and plant life on large canvases. He worked as director of environmental planning for the Palmas del Mar Company, Humacao, Puerto Rico, and was responsible for the prOJection of all natural ecology along a six-m ile coastline duri ng resort developments. Brown's biography is just as colorful as his works of art. He has lived and worked in California, San Juan and Yubucoa, Puerto Rico. He and his wife, Sally, are now residing in Venice. Sea Grasses Also On Exhibit The paintings of William Brown perfectly ~ compliment a display of preserved specimens of sea wee~s and sea grasses of Florida. These preserved specimens have been prepared by Susan Dudley, who works as a volunteer at Mote Marine Laboratory as well as at Selby Gardens. These specimens are not o nly of i~terest botanically and biologically, but are also visually very striking. They range from reds 10 bluish greens, even in the dried condilion . Since ]hesc are specimens that you may find along the beach, especially after a storm, each species will be carefully labeled so that you may identify them. The sea grasses differ from the sea weeds in that these are flowering plants which had adapted to a marine environment. The sea weeds are algae. The Museum of Botany and the Arts is open Monday through Friday, 10:00 a .m. to 4:30 p.m. with general admission to the Gardens of $3.00. •

Lunch at the Red Lobster The Red Lobster is a well known chain seafood restaurant with a pretty good reputation for serving fish, lobster and other ocean dwelling creatures. The dinner menu is large and includes seafood, steaks and various combinations of each. Since Kipling and I have eaten at Red Lobsters several times in the past, we decided to try the lunch menu this time. If you're nooning it at a Red lobster, you can choose ilems from the dinner menu or from the special lunch list. The choices here include soup and sandwich combos (fish, tuna or ham), sandwich platters, fried fish nuggets, popcorn shrimp, shrimp scampi, broiled bluefish, stuffed flounder, beef tips and seafood crepes. The prices range from $2.69 to $3.79.

Kipling had the crepes and clam chowder, and I the popcorn shrimp with fries and cole slaw . The entire meal could have been paid for with an $8.00 bill. The mound of small shrimps Were breaded and deep fried. Not bad at all, but the fries were a little cold and the cole slaw only average. I've had hush puppies in the South that tasted like deep fr ied sawdust, all dry and nasty like. The hush puppies at the Red Lobster have always been very good, and this time was no exception. Clam chowder is a personal thing, like chili or pizza. I liked the flavor of the Red Lobster's chowder, but it wasn't exactly chocked full of ingredients. The seafood crepe was fine, although the edges got a little burned.

Most of the meals we have had at Red Lobster restaurants have been very satisfactory when compared to other chain operations. Consistency is always one of the factors that make a good restaurant. I did, however. have a perfectly awful meal at a Red Lobster in Davenport, Iowa once which only goes to prove that you·can get a bad dinner in a restaurant that normally serves decent food. This was the case in Davenport and it is true of every restauranJ, whether it's part of a chain or not. Regardless of a few flaws. I feci comfortable in recommending Bradenton 's Red Lobster as a good alternative to a burger and fries lunch. The prices are reasonable and overall,. the food was betler than average. The Red Lobster in Bradenton is located at 5711 14th Street West. In Sarasota the address is 6747 South Tamiami Trail. •

ZIP Code Add·On Seen Key To Greater Postal Efficiency

"Snoopy" Wins Venice Sail It was a down wind race to Venice for the 26 boats entered in the second annual Commodores' Cup sponsored by the Suncoast Yacht Club on Sat urday O:clober 1.1. "Snoopy." skippered and crewed by th; Fishers (Bill , Doug and Leslie), was fi rst over the line and the winner in adj usted time. Com ing in 24 seconds behind was the "Kerwi nd" sai led by John and Valerie Kerwin. Third place was wo~ by another family group, Charlie Phillips and his son on the "Windsong". ~t the dinn~r in the Venice Yacht Club. a total of ten pr!zes were given as fo llows: fourth. "Sandy Jay", sk ippered by Howard Taylor ; fifth, "Sea Star" Don White; sixth , "Tranquility", Ed Rupnick- se~enth ·'.Circe", Bob Smith ; eighth, " Truelove", Bud Mabrey: moth , "Second Wind", Russ Sachger, and tenth wen; to "Ciaco", Miero Kolacio. The re.!Urn race was a special event. Twenty-five boats wer~ raclllg for th ~ ~ al Lewis Memorial Trophy. Lewis, a fflend o f the sallmg club and a n enthusiastic sailor died this summer. ' One of Hal's innovative ideas o n racing was used with Bill Fisher dropping the starting marker for a " rabbit" start. The first boal, "Ciaeo", drifted to the outside buoy at Big Pass in four hours, dropped anchor and clocked the rest of the neet. Eleven boalS fi nished and "Ciaco" bounced in the choppy waters of the gulf for another two hours. The winner will be annou nced at the next meeting of the SU llcoast Yacht C lu b on November 6. •

The Postal Service's plan to add four new numbers to present ZIP Codes will allow it to become more efficient and help stabi lize postage rates, a postal official told Congress today. "By law, the P ostal Service is required to search continuously for ways to improve its efficiency so it ca n keep its service up and its COSts and rates d~wn . The nine-digit ZIP Code is designed to jost that," Michael S. Coughlin, Assistant Postmaster General for Mai l Processing, told a hearing of t he Subcommittee on Government Information and Individual Rights of the House Com mittee on Govern ment Operations. "The nine-digit Z IP Code is not an end in itself, bUI rather a means to help us do what we are required to d o, .~ namel y, strive to serve' the American people beller "he testified. ' The key to the anticipated savings from the system wi[] be use of optical cha racter readers, machines that will be able to read the nine-digit ZIP number and sort rna!' automat ically down to these units. Present ly, most mall can be sorted mechanically down only to larger geographical areas. "While the use of the code will be voluntary, " Coughli n testified , "we do hope citizens will come to appreciate that the new digits a re intended to help them, and that they will choose to use them of their own ~olition." •

Yes, ad milled Arvida's engineer, Bill Bishop, it was true. But, he said, it was being done in a way that had long ago been approved by the Dept. of Environmental Regulation, the County of Sarasota and the Town of Longboat Key. The storm run-orr from the whole Planned Unit Development (P UD) including the P rivateer, Longboat K ey Towers and Sands Bay Con d ominiums is engi neered to drain into the gol f course, said Bishop. There, most of its soaks into Ihe ground, with the rest going into retaini ng ponds, and then in to the Bay, he agreed. No Separation Arth ur Koenig of Sands Bay protested that there was no plan to separate the storm water from th e heavier material, - oil from the roads and from the roofs .. T his, said Bishop, is handled by the water having. to run across large expanses of grass to get to the retention ponds. T his takes care of the separation , he claimed.

T hey agreed that their answer should be the Town Manager's explanation that the Town had complied with all of the regulations of which they were aware, and that, if the environmental groups wanted to question this , they should question the regulatory agencies involved .

Looked And Listened The Commissioners looked and listened , but made no comment. The new plans, it was noted, also require a variance from the Coastal Control Line, though not as much as the previous plans for which the Commission rescinded a variance. Henco's architect asked the Commission to study his new plans in the hope o f meeting with them in the near future for fu rther discussion. Topless Ban Next Week Put off until next week ' s workshop were an amendment to the zqning ordinance which will permit the Town to give Arvida "Open space" credit fo r a percentage of golf memberships in the Longboat Key Club, and Commissioners Lewin's "topless dancing" ban and closing hour ordinance. _

Recently, the US Army Corps of Engineers Operations Division Ch ief in Jacksonville, Girlamo Dichiara, wrote the Town of Longboat Key's Manager Wayne AUgire concerning the disposition of dredged material from the proposed dredging of New Pass. His letter to AUgire discussed the placement of fill on Longboat Key's southern end and on Lido Beach and the need fo r an Erosion Control Line. "Dear Mr. AUgi re: This is in response to your letters dated 24 and 25 June 1980 concerning disposal of d redged material from the proposed ma intenance dredging of New Pass and Longboat Pass. Please be advised that in the case of Longboat Pass, we are in the process o f reevaluating the disposal plan with a view toward putting some material on the beach at the north end of Longboat Key. You will be apprised of our findings when they are available ... Approximately one-half of the material fro m the New Pass dredgi ng will be used 10 fill in a swash channel which runs parallel to the beach. The remai ning material will be deposited on the public beach on Lido Key as previously planned. Filling the swash channel is expected to red uce the shoaling rate in the Pass and also reduce to some extent the erosion rate along the south beach of Longboat Key. You asked to be apprised of the additional costs involved in pumping the sand to an area on Longboat Key. We cannot give you an estimate of the costs without knowing where you desire the material to be placed. T herefore, you shou ld furnish some type of map of Longboat Key indicating the location where the material is to be placed. Generally , additional costs wou ld be involved if the pumpi ng d istance is beyond the capacity of the dredge, and this depends on the size of the dredge doing the work. In addition, we would like to poi nt oul that there is more than addi tional costs involved in placing the material on the beaches of Longboat Key. In the absence of an Erosion Control Line, the Florida Department of Natural Resources will not allow material to be placed on these private beaches, requiring that public beaches (if available) receive the material first. Also, the Depa rt me nt of Env iron mental Regulation requi res Ihat local governmental approval be obtai ned prior to issuing a permit for the work. This wou ld include city and county govern ments. We Irust the above is sufficient fo r your present needs. Please let us know if we can be of. further assistance. Please excuse our lale reply to your i n quiri~, bUI as you can see, we were in the process of reeval uating the Sincerely, disposal plans. Girlamo Dichiara Chief, Operarions Division "

Marketplaee COASTLINES from Florida Su Grant CoUege by Tom Leahy <lind Billie Lowry

Barrier Islands-First line Of Defense Barrier islands, those narrow, elongated Strips of land along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts, are among Florida 's most valuable natural resources. Not only are they a very importanl part of a larger coastal ecosystem that includes beaches, dunes. wetlands and estuaries, but they represenl some of the most expensive real estate fo r both residential and recreational development. Front lines In the past few years it has become increasingly evidenl that these barrier islands form a front line of Storm defense for the mainland. protecting the coast from much of the flooding and storm damage that might otherwise occur. But they are naturally unstable themselves and are constantly being eroded, their shape changing from time to time due to the force of S{Qrms, ocean currents, and the slowly rising sea level.

Blalock New Blake Trustee Roben G. Blalock has been elected to the board of trustees of the L. W. Blake Memorial Hospital. Blalock is a partner in the law firm of Knowles, Blalock, Coleman, Landers and W'alters, P .A. A native of Bradenton. he received a bachelor of arts degree from Princeton University. and a law degree from Uni." ersity of Florida. Blalock is president-elect of Manatee County Chamber of Commerce, a trustee of the New College Foundation, and . elder of Palma Sola Presbyterian Church. . Blalock Jives in Bradenton with his wife, Marlene. and their two children, Alex. II and Danielle, 9.

A Development Gamble Because of this instability. barrier islands have always represented a bit of a gamble as far as development is concerned though many have been the targets of inlensive development. Unfortunately, if dunes are leveled during development the first line of defense is gone. If groins and jetties are built to project out to sea to keep sand from drifting away, erosion usually results. This erosion is further intensified by pedestrian and vehicle traffic which breaks down the dunes and the grasses that grow there.

•••

With funding from Florida Sea Granl College. Dr. Richard A. Davis, Jr., chairman of the geology department at the University of South Florida, has begun a study of the origin and growth of barrier islands off the Gulf coast. Davis' study began in Pinellas County and will proceed southward along Florida's west coast to Cape Romano. As a result of this work he hopes to produce geological information that can help determine the future development of these islands.

Gerard Joins Blake Hospital Mary Louise Gerard has been named director of public relations of The l. W. Blake Memorial Hospital. Mrs. Gerard was forme rly Manatee Living Editor of The Bradenton Herald. A native of Bradenton, she received a bachelor of science degree in English and history from Florida State University and a master's degree in secondary education and history from Ohio University, Athens, Ohio. Mrs. Gerard is a member of The Service Club of Manatee County and The Community Service League, and is a youth sponsor at Christ Church (Episcopal). She is a founding director of SI. Stephen's Episcopal School and The Community Thrift Shop and past president of Entre Nous. She has been active in The Women's Comminee of the South Florida Museum, West Coast Symphony Guild, Manatee Players, Girl Scouts and Christ Church (Episcopal).

Objectives of his study are to determine how the islands have been formed, how they will change in the future and where new islands will form. Davis believes they are the result of the gradual emergence of oncesubmerged sand bars. By beginning in Pinellas COUnlY, Davis has islands which are already developed and densely populated as well as others which are undeveloped and in more natural states. These are the ones Davis will study since developmenl inlerferes with the processes he will be observing. Florida Sea Grant College has published a series of Coastal History Notes showing the high water shorelines of record over a period of from 70 to 100 years on a number of barrier islands off Florida's Gulf Coast. These include Anna Maria Key, Capt iva Island, Estero Island. Gasparilla Island. Lido Key, Longboat Key, Sanibel Island, Siesta Key, and Venice. On the Atlantic side a report on the Boca Raton Inlet Vicinity has been published. These reports are available from marine advisory agents at local county Extension offices or by writing to the Marine Advisory Program, 0022 McCarty Hall , University of Florida, Gainesville.

TENT SALE ~FAMOUSBRAND.NAME

Ralph Nader - succeeded in destroying the confidence that Americans had in their domestic cars by his nilly-picking invest igations of the slightest malfunction. The ambulance chasers - following Nader's investigations, they sought out any and all people involved in accidents caused by the failure of certain parts to sue the manufacturers, thereby causing the latter millions of dollars in legal fees and millions more in increased insurance premiums. It can be compareQ, to the excessive fees paid now by doctors for ma.~ ill ice in,~~ surance. On.: of the greatest blessi ngs visited upon the American scene in recent months was the verdict of not guilty against Ford in the maller of the Pinto car. If that j ury h~d de~lared otherwise, the automobile manufacturertmight Just as well have turned the key in the locks of their factories and closed down forever. There would nOt be cnough money in the world to pay, justifiably or not, for everyone involved in an accident. To carry that thought further, how about the bathtub manufacturers being sued by people who slip and fall and injure themselves. There is hardly a product manufactured that could not cause an injury of some kind if people become negligent in the use thereof. Basically, gasoline is dynamite and every car, no matter how well constructed. no matter how well protected. is a time bomb that can go off at any time if reckless and careless drivers are licensed and if drunken drivers are repeatedl y given a slap on the wrist instead of a stiff jail sentence. It would be presumptuous of me to venture an opinion on the percentage of accidents caused by human failure rather than by manufacturers' mistakes, but if pressed for a guesstimate I would have to say that 99070 of the accidents are caused by human failures. Why is it that few, if any, complaints are lodged against imports? I personally believe that it is because people are reluctant to adm it that such purchases wer;: foolish on their part. It is not unlike the motivation, or rather lack o f it , that makes people reluctant to repon an embezzlement or a fraud perpetrated upon them which would reflect on their stupidity for having been taken . Permit me to recite my own experience with a Volvo which my dear wife purchased for me when the gasoline crunch first became eviden t about six years ago. The first thing to go was the muffler. At that time even Midas could not replace it for they had no stock of foreign mufflers. That alone caused a two-month delay before one could be ordered. No sooner was that replaced when a pump failed - another two months. I got rid of it , In reciting these events to a friend of mine, he confessed to me that he also had a Volvo and that one day while driving in New York and making a turn in dense traffic the front wheel came off. If the truth were known about all foreign manufacturers, including Mercedes, then the American car by comparison would seem to be very good indeed . There was nothing wrong with either the design o r construction of the Skyway bridge. For years it stood magesticaliy in Tampa Bay, a thing of beauty and a monument to the architectural skills of American ingenuity. An inexcusable human error of judgment resulted in unnecessary death and destruction. This too can be said of automobi le accidents. •

Since lasl October's massacre, the base has expanded from S I51 billion (0 $ 160 billion . Thai's a 5.9 percent increase. well below inflation as measured by its effects on the price indexes, and nowhere near enough to either trigger a new round of inflation o r stimulate the economy of of the recession. Wendell's analysis is also borne out when the

monetary base is examined. The base consists of currenc~ , in circulation and bank reserves and it is "high-6- '~ed" money. It is from the base that the rractio~"tfanking system creates the rest of the money categories. Each new dollar in the base expands by about 6 to 1, and the Fed's actions to expand or contraCi money can best be determined by tracking the base. _ The monetary restraint shown by these numbers has been recognized by James Sinclair, among others, who recently advised his clients to sell their gold holdings because it was evident that Chairman Pau l Volcker is succeed ing in getti ng the Fed's printing presses under control. Volcker may be the first chairman in history to resist stimulating the economy in an election year Si nclair said, and that feat alone should restore confidence in the dollar. More confidence in the dollar should translate into lower interest rates.

If there is to be an October Massacre this year, it's unli kely that interest rates will be the culprit this time. It may well be ,l1al interest rates are about to turn around and head lower.

Hurricane Prepare dness

Part 3 In our column this week, continuing Sarasota Power Squadron's hurricane preparedness suggestions for boat owners, we cover some sound "food for thought " for owners of large vessels, those who keep their boat at a marina and those who use davits.

Larger Vessels In some cases, owners of larger vessels wi ll want to work with neighbors in a cooperative effort, and keep their boat at dock in canals or basins. Others may want to take the following precautions: (1). Locate a hurricane mooring and obtain written permission from the appropriate persons to moor the vessel. (2). Make a practice run to the hurricane moorings to check accessibility. waler depth, bridges. obstructions, aids to navigation, et c. (3). Remove all moveable equipment from your boat (sails , radio, cushions, etc.) and lash down all equipment that cannot be removed. (4). Keep your fuel tank full, if possible, since supply and/ or time might not be available just prior to a hurricane stri ke. (5). Make a list of equipment needed and purchase. (6). Obtain an adequate length of sturdy line, chafing gear (to protect lines from wear), fenders (to protect the boat from other boats, piers, etc.), and anchors (25 pounds or heavier depending, of course, on the size of the vessel) . (7). Allow plenty of time and head for the mooring well ahead of the anticipated slrike. The waterways may be congested and you shou ld remember NOT to block passage of others' boats which have moorings inshore of yours. Remember, too, it is illegal to tie-up to an aid to navigation. (8). Be sure you test the strength of everything you tie up to. Avoid tying up to Australian pine, palm trees and other trees that do not have a deep root system. (9). All openings on your vessel should be sealed to make sure the boat is as water tight as possible. (10). Consider using spring lines (minimum of 60 feet). Extreme tidal nuctuations a nd winds from all di rections should be anticipated, so slack shou ld be left to accommodate the tide. ( II ), DO NOT stay on your boat! It is too dangerous and rescue efforts may be impossible. Some of the larger vessels will be put at anchor in protected coves and bays and proper anchoring wilt be essential. The use of two or three anchors, as discussed in this column a few weeks ago, will be essential.

Did you know that ancient civilizations worshipped Ihe SU Il as the "perfect" heavenly body? Galileo shaltcred that image when he discovered with his telescope th at the sun had Spots! Science has been stripping away the myths and mysteries of the sun ever since. The sun is so active that its appearance changes fro m one minute to another. It quivers and heaves like a ball of white-hot gelatin as waves a thousand miles high now across its II ,OOO-degree surface. Violent explosions of thermonuclear energy send solar nares as far as hundreds of thousands o f miles OUI from its surface. Dark spots, sometimes many times larger than the earlh, develop on the face of the sun and grow to become raging magnetic storms (hal affect radio and TV reception around the world. Astronomers describe the sun as a small-t ime, secondgenerat ion star born five billion years ago Out of the exploding debris of a supernova. Despite its relatively modest size, the su n generates its fierce heat so efficientl y that it is expected to burn for another IO billion years and shower th e earth with more energy than all of its present and future generations could ever use. If the SUIl were a big lump of coal, it would have become a big black cinder long ago. Bu t the sun is mostly hydrogen, the si mplest element in the universe, and it gene rates tremendous amounts of power efficiently by conserving a small amount of its mass into raw energy. Deep in the su n's in terior, temperatures hover around 36 million degrees and the hydrogen nuclei a re constant ly being fused into a slightly more complex element, helium. Each time the process happens, a small amount o f energy is released. Alone the energy from a fusion reaction would nOt ruffle the wings of a big Florida mosquito, but each year the sun converts about 17 million trillion tons of hydrogen imo 16.9 millie n trillion tons of helium. The difference becomes energy, nung out into space as a broad spectrum of visible light. ultraviolet infrared and other electromagnetic radiation.

Boats At A Marina Stan NOW by reading your storage contract to determine your own and the marina' s responsibility in a hurricane sit uation. If you do not have a contract, discuss the situation with the marina owner and determine his plan of action. The basic procedures discussed in this series will no doubt be part of the marina's plan, whether the boat is on blocks or at the dock. If you are not sat isfied that the marina's plan is sound, you should review your alternatives and establish a timetable for action . As the Power Squadron members say, there is no "best way" to minimize damage in the even! of a hurricane, but we do hope that this series of suggestions will be helpful in the event of a hurricane strike in this area. Boats On Davits? Swing the boat around and put the boat down on a cradle or blocks of wood on the ground. Use mobile home anchors and tie down carefully wi th allowance for high water. Use your cockpit cover, but remove the folding top if you have one. If your boat is in a basin, follow the tie-down suggestions covered in our next • colum n.
